Was CNN breaking story - 4000 protesters burn flag, raise black flag of ROP... an outrage.

Well, I see the president really did a crackerjack job with that Cairo speech.
These people are nuts.
Don’t they remember that Obama supported their Arab Spring???
And the Boy King wants to send a BILLION of our Tax dollars to these people? HELL NO! Not one thin dime....
Cut off the Egyptian subsidy.
In the dictionary under “incompetence” there is a picture of 0bama
Jimmy Carter redux. Obama is doomed to repeat history (what is past is prologue).
Arab Spring? Time for Israel to attack Iran. ‘F’ THEM ALL.
Why is this not the top story on CNN/FOX, and every other station. Protestors have breached the walls of an American Embassy in the Middle East!
Are all of the Americans safe?
Does anyone else see shades of Tehran? This should be a huge deal
Religion of Peace Commemoration of 9/11
ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11!?
Surely a coincidence, right?
Clearly Hillary needs to get there and give them billions more of our dollars.
Get the King Tut relics et al out of there ASAP.
Even the Pyramids may not survive what’s coming.
The incident prompted U.S. security guards to fire off a volley of warning shots as a large crowd gathered outside, apparently upset about the production of a Dutch film thought to insult the Prophet Mohammed, said CNN producer Mohammed Fahmy, who was on the scene.
An embassy operator told CNN that the facility had been cleared of diplomatic personnel earlier Tuesday, ahead of the apparent threat,
F THEM ALL.
NUKE THEM ALL.
(If this sounds too harsh, just think what these
a-holes would do to us in a New York minute if
only they could. Come to think of it, the way
things are going, they’ll be able to do it much
sooner than anyone would have thought possible.
PUSH DA BLOOMIN’ BUTTON ALREADY!!)

Sorry, too late.
‘2016: Obama’s America’ is a certified hit.
Domestic Total as of Sep. 9, 2012: $26,115,717.
“...A U.S. embassy official had no immediate comment on the protesters’ actions but the embassy had put out a statement earlier on Tuesday condemning those who hurt the religious feelings of Muslims or followers of any other religions.”
I thought this quote from the report was quite interesting. Why on earth do should we have to be concerned with the Muslim’s feelings when they are systematically exterminating the Christians living in Egypt (and elsewhere)? Ridiculous to the point of being criminal.
Who cares about the King Tut relics or the pyramids or Sphinx? Let the world see who these thugs really are.
Technically, legal-speak, they have invaded US territory. How is it not news worthy?
So, we apologized already even without knowing what we're apologizing for?
On 9/11 no less. More “smart diplomacy” from Team Soetoro.
“black flag” = appropriately chosen color.
And, it’s “Al Reuters,” BTW.
Damn....And I love Egyptian cotton.
After Obama gifted them a Billion taxpayers dollars knowing full well he was funding his brethren, America’s NEW ALLIES in world islamic revolution. Starting first with Israel, then America.
That Obama, what a snake oil salesman.
Rage Boy doesn’t care. All movies upset him.
Notice it does not say Marines fired those shots. Makes me wonder if State had them locked up in the basement.
This whole thing appears choreographed and smells to high heaven.
“This whole thing appears choreographed and smells to high heaven.”
Prolly Axelerod special. Calls were made.
They have to get their licks in while the "idiot in chief" is still presiding and November is coming fast!
Only showing as a minor “lastest news” story on Fox.
If I posted what I'm thinking I'd be banned.
It’s been a while since I’ve been to our embassy in Cairo. It was like a fortress in 1997, and I can only imagine that they’ve beefed it up significantly since 9/11. Attackers are lucky the Marines didn’t blow their heads off.
“Who cares about the King Tut relics or the pyramids or Sphinx? Let the world see who these thugs really are.”
I do. These are treasure irreplaceable and shouldn’t be destroyed just to “prove” what everyone knows. That the infestation of Moslems in Egypt that occurred thousands of years after those were created, is an ongoing tragedy. Islam hadnt even been invented yet when those pyramids were built.
The current inhabitants of Egypt are not the people who built those amazing structures. This is exactly why we buit neutron bombs. And im 100% serious. Wipes out the infestation, and leaves the buildings intact. This should be considered. Ditto for Mecca. There no reason to destroy these old buildings,,they didn’t do anything wrong.
Heh - I would have thought we had closed up shop in Egypt awhile ago. Although I guess I wouldn’t mind images of choppers on the roof of the embassy a few weeks before election day.
The MSM needs as much of an overhaul as the government
No, they have not. According to the Department of State, embassies are not sovereign territories and remain the territory of the host state. However, an embassy does represent a sovereign state and as such this outrage does represent an attack on the United States according to international agreement.
And if we had a leader with cojones, we'd be having a short and one-sided conversation with the Egyptian Ambassador at this very moment.
3 hezbollah members arrested at an airport in Mexico yesterday too
On September 11th, Obama refuses to meet with Netanyahu, and the people Obama supported stormed the American embassy in Egypt, burned the flag, and ran up a black moslem flag.
Let’s see, the Embassy is US land....so who ordered the Marines NOT to shoot ?????
Another great foreign policy fiasco for Obama !
or something like that
Point being we have every right to retaliate as what has happened is an attack, in a very legal sense, on the United States.
Also, if we had a leader with cojones, it would be pointed out to said Ambassador that this day on the calendar ought to be a particularly bad day to screw around with the United States.
No, it's not. See above.
How can this be..I thought with an Obama Presidency everyone would love us and skittles and chocolate unicorns would fall from the sky/sarc
Clearly it is a double headed attack on western man. Obama blows off Bibi... and is probably using the Egyptian noise to overshadow his anti western man activities.
I am sure that his muslim brethren are celebrating their leader embarrassing Bibi at the UN!
