MY E-MAIL | 09/14/2012 | ACT FOR AMERICA

Posted on 09/14/2012 6:46:09 AM PDT by RichSr

I just spent about an hour calling every one in D C about this. Your call will help. (I have majic jack now, so it only costs 29 dollars per year)


Dear Richard,

This past Tuesday, September 11, 2012, as our nation solemnly remembered the brutal Islamist attack on our nation eleven years ago, our U.S. Ambassador to Libya was assassinated and our embassy in Cairo was stormed by violent Islamists. Even though both countries have now spoken out against the attacks, their silence during the violence made them passively complicit in the abhorrent actions by their people. In particular, Egyptian President Morsi’s lengthy delay in condemning the attack on our embassy was completely unacceptable.

What was the “excuse” for the violence? A movie about the Prophet Mohammed.

Even worse, the initial response by our own nation to the Cairo attack was an apology by the U.S. Embassy. It read in part: “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.” (Note: We were going to include a link to the full original statement here, but it’s mysteriously no longer available!)

This is shameful. The American people know better, and so should those who speak for us.

In fact, the response by our embassy was SO appalling, that the White House was forced to issue a disavowal stating, “The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government.” See HERE for more on the issue.

It is CRITICAL that we speak with ONE VOICE to let the Administration and the U.S. Congress know that we will no longer tolerate sending our tax dollars to Egypt and Libya until this latest attack is addressed to the satisfaction of our nation and until the regimes in both countries can prove that they will not use the funds to further jihadist causes. Though the leaders have now condemned the attacks in their countries, we don’t find those responses to be strong enough or timely enough to warrant the gift of hard-earned taxpayer money.

Enough is enough!

These recent violent incidents are reminiscent of the 1979 Iranian attacks on our embassy, and of the Muslim violence resulting from Danish cartoonists’ depictions of Mohammed.

Further, the attacks in Egypt and Libya are taking place at the same time that Egyptian President (Muslim Brotherhood candidate), Mohammed Morsi is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. and meet with President Obama. They are occurring at the same time our own State Department is assisting efforts to curtail free speech through their participation in the Istanbul Process and U.N. Resolution 16/18 (more on that issue in future e-mails).

And of all dates—these most recent attacks on our embassies took place on September 11th. The symbolism couldn’t be any more blatant.

The important question, though, is this: What kind of response will come from the American citizenry? Will we be silent—or will we speak up?

A 1-minute phone call by you about this matter—magnified by 240,000 other ACT! for America activists will make a tremendous noise that the U.S. Congress will have NO OPTION but to hear. Will you join us?

Our federal leaders need to clearly understand that the American people will hold them accountable—especially at the voting booths this November—if they reward the reprehensible behavior within these two countries by giving them your hard-earned tax dollars.

We must say “NO.”


Please take a moment today to call the numbers listed below. If the line is busy, keep trying! If you get an answering machine, leave your message on it!

Tell these members of our national leadership respectfully, but firmly, that you are opposed to ANY military funding for Egypt or Libya at this time, and that you will be watching to see if they receive it.

while you are at it..complain about the 40 billion open ended bond buyback..slush fund for Obama re election. I got a feeling much of the cash for Egypt and Lybia will circle back to Obama.

Let me see if I have the recent events straight...

- Two days before the attack on our Consulate in Libya the administration got credible warnings that an attack was eminent

- After the warnings were received the Administration did NOTHING to increase security to protect our personnel in the region

- Ambassador Stevens was reportedly raped with an implement, and then suffocated, before being drug around for a few hours before his body was recovered

- Three other Embassy staffers were brutally murdered

- We have information that suggests the attack facilitated by information leaked from official sources “on our side”

- Al Quada may have been involved

- The “president” makes a statement in which it appears he can't figure out of Egypt is an ally or an enemy, he's aware that Egypt may have been involved in the attack in Libya, but has no intentions of withholding $1.5 Billion in US aid

- A recording that was taken at the time has some of the attackers claiming they were sent by Egypt's Islamist President, Mohammed Morsi

- While all these events transpired the president apparently skipped numerous daily intelligence briefings and instead went on the campaign/fundraising trail

Can it get any worse than this? Is there any thing that could paint a picture of an administration so they'd look more incompetent and ridiculous than they do today?

Am I missing something?

Well said Raven...I will copy and use that timeline of events on other spaces to show the ignorant handling of this situation by Omoron.
