President Barack Hubris Hussein “kill list” Obama, on September 11, 2012, apologized to Muslim terrorists for murdering four American citizens. The Muslim attackers were said to be protesting a film that is said to be insulting to the Prophet Muhammad. But now we learn that the attack at a US Consulate in Benghazi may have been planned and backed by al-Qaeda. The Benghazi attack was supposed to be spontaneous, but it involved rocket-propelled grenades (an item all Muslim men walk around with), and came after a call by al-Qaeda to avenge the death of one of its senior members. Would intelligence have helped here? Probably, but we’ll never know. Could Obama have personally done anything had he bothered to attend Presidential Daily Briefings (PDB) and known? Perhaps. He claims, after all, that he killed bin Laden.
There was also an attack on the US Embassy in Cairo, Egypt. Again, the attack purpose supposedly was to protest a Muslim-insulting film. But rather than condemn the attack, a statement on the US Embassy web page states, “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.” The statement continues, “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” So there you have it – the US, through its Egyptian Embassy, apologizing to Muslims rather than condemning their attack. And, I might add, any word from a US Embassy must be first cleared through the White House, so Obama approved that statement.
And speaking of religious beliefs, Obama, through HHS mandates, said “that it would no longer exempt religious employers from having to offer all forms of healthcare, including those that go against their religion, to employees for free.” It appears that Obama does not condemn efforts to offend the beliefs of the Catholic Church. Can anyone say “hypocrisy?”
This is truly a foreign policy fiasco. And we find that Obama, during his over 1200 days in office, has attended his PDB only 43.8 percent of the time. He attended PDBs during 2011 and 2012 only 38 percent of the time. Now we learn that Obama last attended a PDB (at which intelligence is discussed) on September 5, six days before 9/11, a date celebrated throughout the Muslim world.
For comparison, George W. Bush rarely missed PDBs.
Who’da thunk it – an intelligence briefing proving handy during the week prior to 9/11? The White House says that, even when he does not attend PDBs, Obama reads the daily intelligence reports. I guess he reads them while on the golf course.
When he does attend PDBs (less than 40 percent of the time), Obama is said to “masterfully” conduct the meetings, with him asking many questions. But, as Walter Pincus states, “… a former senior adviser to former presidents said the system sounded more like a morning ‘seminar’ where other stakeholders, such as Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, are not present.”
Speaking of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, here is what she had to say about the murders in Lybia:
“Today many Americans are asking, indeed I asked myself, ‘How could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate? In a city we helped save from destruction?’”
No attack or murder condemnation. But, then, what response would you expect from someone who has to do Obama’s bidding?
Now this from Tammy Bruce:
“Obama essentially blames the attacks on us, as our fault, with [Obama's statement] ‘Our country is only as strong as the character of our people.’ Whether that was conscious or subconscious, I don’t know, but the message is, this is only happening because the American people have no real character.”
I thought Obama was going to make Muslims like us. But, as he wrote in Audacity of Hope, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Well, political winds are shifting in an ugly direction, and we can clearly see where Obama’s sympathies lie.
Again, I have to ask, “How Much More Can We Take?”
But that’s just my opinion.
