Obama condemns ‘outrageous attack’ in Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador
Washington Times ^ | September 12, 2012 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 09/12/2012 5:15:09 AM PDT by BulletBobCo

President Obama said Wednesday he strongly condemns the “outrageous attack” by a mob in Libya that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

“Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “They exemplified America’s commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.”

Mr. Stevens and three other Americans were killed Tuesday in an attack on the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi by protesters angry over a film that ridiculed Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

Press releases are nice, but action is better.

Let’s see what this clown does.

These Islamists pull this crap because they know they’ll get away with it scott free. Hell, they practically got an apology yesterday. The right thing to do would be to find these a$$holes and make a very graphic example of them. Then it wouldn’t happen twice.

"by protesters angry over a film that ridiculed Islam’s Prophet Muhammad"

BS. No way I believe that in two separate countries muslims just coincidentally decided to attack a US Embassy, on the same day (9/11 not less) because of a movie nobody has even seen yet. These acts were coordinated, it's as obvious as the nose you face.

He’s just upset that this happened before the elections. That whole “Arab Spring” facade has come crumbling down on him and it will take a whole lot for the media to cover this up or to spin it in his favor.

He condemns from one side of his undocumented mouth.

From the other, he issues commands in Arabic.

This brings to mind JC.....Jimmy Carter. Only in this case, they didn't just capture the embassy personnel, they KILLED them. The lapdog press is already starting to ignore this.

“Hell, they practically got an apology yesterday.”

They DID get an apology, the fact that they took down their tweet and DC apologized for the apology means nothing.

And, frankly, it disturbs me that an embassy would say anything to anyone via any method that was not OK’d by the administration. Behavior like that is a recipe for disaster. OMG, esp. in a place like Egypt.

These people are, at best, incompetent boobs.

Maybe he should show how incensed he is by going on the Late Show with David Letterman and refusing to meet with Israeli PM Netanyahu.

That will show those Muslims he means business!

Words mean nothing now, Obama. Actions means everything.

Immediately we need to inform host govts involved that we expect and demand support to find these individuals equal to our own actions. If not, this is war.

Interesting how it all happened on 9-11 ... turning Bibi down for a meeting, the American flag torn down at the Egyptian embassy, Americans killed in Libya. He’s been getting decent ratings on national security, mostly because of tooting his own horn on bin Laden .... let’s see what happens now. Obama has been trying to keep the lid on a pot of troubles that is close to boiling over, domestic and foreign, and hoping the boilover will happen after the elections. It’s happening before and I hope the American people throw this buffoon out of office.

I can only imagine how terrified those responsible for this atrocity are after obama’s scorching remark.

What is obama going to do.....put them on double secret probation or have Hillary release a statement indicating that she is very, very, very unhappy?

Is it any wonder why the US has lost the respect of countries throughout the world?

You know, these people are obviously ignorant savages but....they do succeed in keeping most comedians, movie makers, etc, from even saying the slightest thing against Islam.

What if we burned 3 or 4 of the liberals favorite art museums the next time some lefty slimeball claiming to be an artist dumped a cross in urine? I certainly don’t support that, but it does appear to be one sure fire way of preventing ones religion from being dragged through the mud by the leftist entertainment establishment. Just saying is all...

what film? some clip on youtube? That mob killed Americans on SEPTEMBER 11TH. It wasn’t over some youtube clip, it was their tribute to September 11th. I really do think the democrats scoured youtube to find a clip, anything to justify the most recent Islam attack on America and then added that youtube clip as a “movie” to every press release.

I just heard one of his spin-meisters on Fox.

Their direction at this moment:

“It’s a terrible thing in the middle of a confusing situation to politicize what is happening. It has been condemned by Hillary...By Barack. We came together after 9/11, blah, blah, blah.”

So, the media will pick up how awful it is if anyone says anything bad about Barry in a time of crisis.

The big difference between this and 9/11: Bush did NOT give airplane keys to the hijackers.

Obama did put these jihadists in power in Libya and Egypt.

This is OBAMA’S foreign policy failing terribly. It is legitimate to pick it apart and lay blame.
