If indeed some poor quality internet film caused massive protest and riots across the Muslim world, then woe to us all if a Muslim reads this blog. Although I haven’t raked Mohammed across the coals like this film apparently did, I’ve had plenty to say about Islam in general. As far as I know, nothing I’ve written has enraged the Islamic faithful. Then again, the film in question has been out there for months, but not until September 11 did the Muslim world decide to be outraged. If you believe the Obama regime, it’s just pure coincidence.
You would think that the Obama regime would be in damage control, trying to walk back the boneheaded statements from both Barry and Hillary that an obsure home made film sparked riots across the Middle East and resulted in the death of an American ambassador and members of his staff. On the contrary, the regime trotted out U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to do the media circuit and reiterate that it was the film, and not a premeditated attack that caused the events beginning September 11. Libyan President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf obviously has a different spin on this, but in this case, he is at least partially correct. He says it was planned, it was premeditated, but his scenario presumes the perpetrators in Libya were foreigners and not the Libyan people. Well, somebody gave up the safe house, and you can be reasonably assured it wasn’t some foreigner that had been in the country only a short time.
Rice’s version has an initially peaceful protest hijacked by extremist forces and it “evolved” from there. She also said there was substantial security at the Benghazi facility, although as far as I know, the attackers were unimpeded at both the consulate and the safe house. Rice admitted that there were no Marines at the consulate, so it wasn’t clear what kind of security she was referring to.
Not only has Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East been an unmitigated disaster, but their actions appear to either incredible naivete’, or culpability in leaving essentially American soil unprotected in one of the most volatile regions of the world. Barack Obama has battered foreign policy, battered the economy, battered the border, battered the Constitution, battered race relations, battered the integrity of the voting system in this country, battered the Supreme Court, and has even battered the office of the President itself. All conjecture aside, the fact that his father was a British subject makes Obama’s birth governed by the British Nationality Act of 1948, therefore not natural born. Ironically, Obama even concedes this but remains unopposed by those that could actually do something about it.
The worst part of all is this guy is winning. With less than two months before the presidential election, Obama holds a lead over Romney, despite a job performance that would have gotten any one of us fired. To compound the matter, a Romney presidency would only be somewhat of a respite from the leftist ideology that is at work 24/7 in this country. Judges, schools, city and state governments are churning out the next generation of Obama’s and the Repubs don’t have an answer for it. If this year’s pick of the litter is any indicator, the Republicans have no answer.
