Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal released a statement today saying he doesn’t even though few details are known at this point about the motivation behind the deadly attacks at two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that left four Marines dead on Thursday, “it certainly looks like an act of terrorism.”

Jindal, who is running for president and hasfrequently blasted radical Islam, said in a statement released by his campaign that the Tennessee shooting “underscores the grave reality of the threat posed to us by radical Islamic terrorism every single day.”

“There have been many bad things that have happened under President Obama,” Jindal said. “This is grotesque. You cannot defeat evil until you admit that it exists.”

Here’s Jindal’s full statement:

“This shooting underscores the grave reality of the threat posed to us by Radical Islamic terrorism every single day. It’s time for the White House to wake up and tell the truth…and the truth is that Radical Islam is at war with us, and we must start by being honest about that.

“There have been many bad things that have happened under President Obama. One that stands out to me was the horrible shooting at Ft. Hood…which was clearly an act of terrorism by a Radical Islamist. Yet the White House labeled that horrible act as ‘workplace violence.’

“This is grotesque. You cannot defeat evil until you admit that it exists.”
