I am livid.

Here is TOTUS' entire written statement:

I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. 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.

I have directed my Administration to provide all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe. While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.

On a personal note, Chris was a courageous and exemplary representative of the United States. Throughout the Libyan revolution, he selflessly served our country and the Libyan people at our mission in Benghazi. As Ambassador in Tripoli, he has supported Libya’s transition to democracy. His legacy will endure wherever human beings reach for liberty and justice. I am profoundly grateful for his service to my Administration, and deeply saddened by this loss.

The brave Americans we lost represent the extraordinary service and sacrifices that our civilians make every day around the globe. As we stand united with their families, let us now redouble our own efforts to carry their work forward.

NOTE also where is statement on Egypt?

Of course the attack took place early evening in Libya. The story was already out there by the international press. Our MSM put a lid on the story awaiting the WH response and directions on how to spin the story. The President could have responded yesterday to the attacks in both Egypt and Libya.

His staff knows they have to be very careful when they tell Obumma news that might stress him out.

It’s starting to sound like the muslim mobs took their bodies, and did a Falluja or Mogadishu on them.

And they still have their bodies.

The ‘rats in the White House REALLY don’t want us to know how bad it actually is.

The core members of this jerk's party ridicule and demonize Christians every single day. What gives this guy the right to tell people who they can and cannot criticize while exercising their freedom of speech? Way to uphold the First Amendment, Obama...

"Al-Sharef said two U.S. Marines sent to Benghazi when the clash erupted were shot and killed by the well-armed protesters. It was not immediately clear whether the Marines were part of Stevens' security detail. The American whose death was confirmed on Tuesday also died of a gunshot wound. He was identified by the State Department on Wednesday as Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith."

Gov. Mitt Romney slammed President Barack Obama‘s administration for sympathizing with the Islamists who attacked the U.S. diplomatic centers in Egypt and Libya.

“It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks,” said his statement released just after midnight as Sept. 11 came to a close.

Notice the media isn’t too eager to report on the rage in the Arab world either....they must AWAIT instructions from the Obamugabe regime before they say anything.

If Bush were in office now, the media world would be assaulting HIM for these actions.

**************

Oh, he STRONGLY condemns. WOW, that should scare the fanatic savages! S/

The Resident was quite willing to aide these savages in their takeover, but he is not willing to retaliate over them murdering Americans in cold blood. This happened eleven years after 9-11 and all he does is strongly condemns. I expect nothing less from a spineless cowardly campaigner-n-chief,

I wonder how long it will take his Brownshirts to blame Romney for making the trailer.

As Ambassador in Tripoli, he has supported Libya’s transition to democracy. His legacy will endure wherever human beings reach for liberty and justice.

He left a word out: "wherever human beings reach for Islamic liberty and justice.

And that changes everything, though I wonder what percentage of Americans yet realize that, or admit it to themselves.

He is STILL apologizing for Americans exercising their First Amendment rights in a film no one has heard of, and he does so in the same paragraph in which he condemns the slaughter of Americans by people he whom he assisted with American military power just a few months ago. I am hard pressed to determine which is worse: his (at best) naivete about the Arab Spring or the false moral equivalence of his statement on the slaughter in Benghazi.

Obama’s Statement on the Muslim attacks on American missions

To all my Muslim friends. Peace be unto you in the name of Mohammed, blessed be his name.

If you MUST kill Americans, please try to refrain from hacking their bodies to pieces as it makes them difficult to identify.

Thank you.

Statement from Mitt Romney

American Embassies are AMERICAN SOIL. If you attack another American Embassy, unlike in Cairo where you morons violated our territory and destroyed property and where the Marine sentries were ordered by the Muslim friendly Obama administration to STAND DOWN, our security forces will FIRE FOR EFFECT. If necessary, I will dispatch carrier based air cover and additional ground forces to protect our people and remove them from your clutches.

The Marine Hymn contains the line “…to the shores of Tripoli.” If you wish to continue your insane tribal and sectarian madness, we will be back just long enough to bring out every American citizen then leave you to your national insanity until you’re all dead.

Both the planned attacks on our embassy & consulate in Egypt & Libya were fully carried out on Tuesday, September 11, 2012. The news of these attacks was all over the internet, starting late Tuesday afternoon (dinner time in the USA). Both POTUS Obama and SOS, Hillary Clinton said nothing, issued no statements, one way or the other!!!

These acts were carefully planned and excuted on schedule by Muslim extremists, not some unplanned Muslim mob action. The USA suffered another well planned, mini-9/11 attacks yesterday throughout the Middle East.

Bottom line: the USA has no POTUS, no state department, no leadership on any front. Folks, fellow citizens, we are all in harm’s way, and we better damn well wake up, and destroy Obama and the entire Democrat Party, politically, before they destroy our great country!! I am so mad and vivid with angry, that I will not post further lest I pen something from my NYC background about how I really feel of that poor excuse of a human being, America Hater/Destroyer, POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama!!!

The enemy is knocking on our door with the support and aid of the “Muslim Brotherhood” man in the White House. I cannot believe that the American people are so asleep at the wheel unaware, to the lurking, rising danger to our country, our children, ourselves Obama must be defeated in November, 2012!!!

It was probably mentioned in Tuesday’s intelligence briefing, but only intelligent people attended the meeting. So, Obambi didn’t find out until Wednesday.

Take note of the very first word that comes out of his mouth - "I". The President is supposed to speak for the nation. He should always speak in the third person to state the facts and issue America's response, stating America's policy, and America's actions. Obama never does that. Instead, it is always about him and what he has done.

It was unreal watching the morning network news programs this AM. The pretty libtard talking faces were carrying the State Depts water shamelessly. For example, just taking it as 100% true that the DOS in DC had nothing to do with the original statement from the Cairo embassy. Why should we take it as gospel that DC didn’t have any input? Yet the network talking faces used that as a total defense. Might as well be on the White House payroll.

Another posted pointed out that the Ambassador to Egypt was a career diplomat who would (a) probably never have written something like that statement to begin with and (b) would certainly never have released it without the permission or orders of her superiors (which would be either Hillary, the world’s most useless SOS, or Obama or whoever is in charge at the White House).

I fully expect to see all the jihad/marxist/anarchist groups show up in full rage in European and American cities followed by a “national” crisis that will detract the electorate’s attention, perhaps even supress the election. This may well be an October surprise of a diffferent sort. Never let a good crisis go to waste. I certainly wouldn’t put it past Obama to attempt it.

The announcement timing is, should not be, a problem.

Allowing this to occur ... IS.

The MB has officially, with an identifiable flag (uniform) and weaponry that caused death ... war.

And zero ... you had BETTER declare war on the MB, including and especially the ones beside you right now and in HILLARY!s bed.

Yeah. The only thing that interests Obumma right now is his re-election effort. Therefore, before they broke the news to him, they had to prepare (a) a list of the implications for the political race with Romney, including ways to shift the blame to Republicans in general and Romney in particular, (b) input from their pollsters on how to track the public response to this situation in the coming days, (c) speech ideas and potential venues for the immediate future, and (d) a list of vacation/golf locations for this weekend.

Wording still sounds like the embassies are under our control.
Somehow I doubt it.
Being so overrun, and even attacked unto killing an ambassador, I’m wondering - and not hearing - what the current status is and what’s happening to the staff. A few desecrated dead aside (!), where are the other hundred or so personnel? and why no word of our security doing the obvious?

Matt, your latest tale was barely published in time...

But he reads the executive summaries, right? This is the same guy who thinks we have navy corpsemen. Is he capable of understanding the summary on his own? Wouldn't it be better for him to attend? There he could ask questions and get clarification......

This is act of war kind of stuff, what will Dear Leader do? Send a nasty gram, withdraw the Ambassador they have to get his body first. Americans in these areas of the mideast should paint targets on their back, they can not respond to defend themselves, so they are killed. This is the beginning of Jimmy Carter and Iran all over again

Obama's response is the weakest drivel I've seen from a President on an attack on Americans. He can't help but add the religious intolerance nonsense. I am Catholic and he has declared war on my faith.

Obama has made me do something I'd never thought I would. Say that I miss the presidency of Carter.
