I hope he & his handlers try to fly this written statement instead of getting Obama out in public to make a statement.
Having him hide behind a press release weakens him.

Publicly “condemned”, privately sent a letter of commendation to his fellow muzzies for a job well done.

Absolutely. So he'll go play golf.

Embassies provide covers for the CIA. I have no idea whether any of these people were CIA as I haven’t looked for some of the telltale signs.

But terrorists know by now that the relationship exists.

The question in presstitute minds is how did Romney order up riots in Libya? It was a great idea, but how did he pull it off? /s

Too late.

They can re write history, and make up new stories all they want.

But the first thing the obama Administration did was apologize

because A Christian in Florida caused this.

He wasn’t ‘outraged’ last night. But we are expected to believe he is now. Yep, that’s the media covering his butt.

I read a post from someone who knows and worked with the Ambassaor to Egypt, and the poster said that the Ambassador would never have written and issued such a thing and, furthermore, that even if she did want to say something like that, she would never have done it without being told or permitted to do so by the WH or the Secy of State. The ambassador us a career diplomat who has been in a number of important postings.

I bet the statement came from State.

Press releases are nice, but action is better.

Hopefully Obama will have the sense of President Reagan whose ultimate response to the Beruit bombing that killed almost three hundred Marines was to pull the US out of a dangerous meddling situation. Reagan was the last American president smart enough to realize that we're not a Middle Eastern nation.

Just before the American’s were taken hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Iran, in the Carter years, a U.S. Marine was taken hostage and it took some time to secure his release.

That is when we learned that our Marine “Guards” carried NO AMMUNITION for their weapons!!!

That was the second time I wrote the White House, in protest.

The first was in 1968 when N.K. captured the Pueblo....I was in High School.

This is an act of war. Libya has attacked our soil. Any failure to respond with MILITARY action must be used by Mitt Romney in many campaign ads.

Trav, this act of war must be responded to. Period.

"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."

I already heard one attempt on CNN. Some foreign correspondent being interviewed stated that part of the problem was that Western nations and the US hadn't done enough to support the fledgling democracy in Libya and had turned our attention elsewhere, that things like this could happen because the central government was too weak and needed more assistance. Bleh!

I disagree. Obama wants a hostage crisis or its equivalent — such as the bombings — creates a “rally around the president” distraction.

Next time the regime will issue a strongly worked letter of concern. If it keeps up then, the ultimate sanction: A “major speech” from Obama about peace and good-neighborliness.

Hezbollah killed hundreds of US Marines in 1983. What did President Reagan do about that? Sometimes the best response to getting stung is is to quit sticking a hand into a hornet’s nest. But Obama, like many politicians on both sides, is a habitual Wilsonian meddler in affairs on the other side of the globe.

They can’t even get their cover story straight. ABC said it was a Terry Jones clip and CNN said it was the alleged Son of Hamas movie that forced those delicate muslims to pull out their RPGs and assassinate the ambassador.

All total BS. Open season on Americans. Payback on the 9/11 anniversary.

Notice the kenyan can’t even say the T word. Fort Hood style dissembling all over again.

It is stunning that the DIPlomats have Marines protecting the embassies, but apparently the Marines have their ROE that they can't shoot these moozlum creeps. I find it hard to believe that a properly armed US Marine couldn't singlehandedly take out 50-100 of these slimy moozlums.

Where is John McCain on this? He was cheerleading for the Islamists almost as much as Obama.

Just 2 days ago, he was asking again for intervention against Assad.

Obama denigrates the beliefs of Christians all the time. Anyway, its the First Amendment, Free Speech. This is an attack on the First Amendment, orchestrated by the White House. It cost Ambassador Chris Stevens his life.

Obama condemns ... blah blah blah ... talk talk talk .... but he can't even keep his whole administration in line, as shown by the Cairo apology story ( http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2929713/posts ) ...

The Muslims are making it more and more apparent that the way to handle them is likely to be as BlueLancer suggested over a decade ago:

--------------------------------

200 years from now, I want their children's children's children
to cower and cringe in fear whenever they hear the sounds of jet engines overhead
because their legends tell of fire from the sky.

I want them to hide in dark caves and holes in the earth,
shivering with terror whenever they hear the roar of diesel engines
because the tales of their ancestors talk about metal monsters
crawling over the earth, spitting death and destruction.

I want their mothers to be able to admonish them with
"If you don't behave, the Pale Destroyers will come for you",
and that will be enough to reduce them to quivering obedience.

I want the annihilation to be so complete that their mythology
will tell them of the day of judgment when the stern gods from across the sea
.. the powerful 'Mericans .. destroyed their forefathers' wickedness.

(Original created by BlueLancer ... 13 September 2001)

I must have missed the second part of this release where he says this attack on America will not stand and he has ordered Marines to secure all Middle East embassies with deadly force. Governments who do not control their citizens will not get their allowance check from the U.S. this month.

Anyone who thinks that SOS Hillary has any cachet in the Middle East is out of his mind. The reptilian Islamic savages who control virtually the whole ME cauldron hate women and keep them enslaved. Who, in his right mind, thinks that Hillary is able to negotiate ANYTHING with these neanderthals. It's a wonder they even let her step foot into their countries.

Yet the Dems build her up like she's smart and effective, the greatest emissary our country has had since Benjamin Franklin.

All of Obama's unelected cabinet members and czars are an ideological mortal danger to the U.S. and they must be run out of the DC swamp as quickly as possible after the upcoming election.

Both instances are Acts of War.

Embassy grounds are the sovereign soil of the US.

Whoever is the leader of each of these rat holes needs to be called to account and quickly!
