Obama condemns rocket attack that killed U.S. envoy to Libya... [updated: Hillary Clinton statement]
CNN ^ | September 12th, 2012 1o:07 AM EDT | unattributed

Posted on 09/12/2012 7:30:17 AM PDT by Hunton Peck

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in Libya overnight, "risked his life to stop a dictator" when he was sent to Benghazi last year as the American envoy to the rebels working to topple Moammar Gadhafi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday in the wake of an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that left Stevens and three other Americans dead.

"This is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths around the world," Clinton said. "We condemn in the strongest terms this senseless act of violence and we send our prayers to the families friends and colleagues of those we’ve lost."

Clinton said that the four people who died represent the diplomats all over the world who risk their lives because "they believe the United States must be a force for peace and progress in the world."

"These aspirations are worth sacrificing and striving for," Clinton said.

Clinton said that she understand the attack in Libya was hard for most to fathom given the recent efforts by NATO in the area.

"Today many Americans are asking, indeed I asked myself, how could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?" Clinton said.

This question shows how complex the world can be, she said, adding that the attack was orchestrated by a small and savage group, and not the larger people and government of the country that Americans still fight to defend.

During the attack armed militants assaulted the compound and set fire to the building, Clinton said. She added that Libyans and Americans battled the attackers together.

"When the attack came yesterday Libyans stood and fought to defend our post. Some were wounded," Clinton said. "Libyans carried Chris’ body...

Obama and his cohort of multi-culti frooty tutes are fail personified. The world is not like an American taxpayer funded college campus, but that is our elite, college deans and profs, fails.

That is the blueprint for attacking our nation. We will do nothing. We will hold nobody responsible. We are paralyzed.

They know exactly how to attack us, and they're doing a fine job of it. In fact, they're so good at it that they can pull it off and actually get us to apologize to them and pledge stronger support.

This is sickening.

barry’s bozos are trying to underplay the fact that an American Ambassador was killed in the line of duty by rabid Libyan citizens and the Libyan government let them do it.

Hammer them and do not relent! No quarter.

He lost his life because of the extremist mob we placed in control.

It was entirely your policy, Hillary, that resulted in this mob controlling Benghazi. Own it.

As I recall, it was another President who said the U.S. wouldn’t support the Shah of Iran, and we know how that turned out.

I'll bet they did. Carried him outside to mutilate his body, as the Libyan troops looked on.

Given the former “Rules of Engagement” of our troops in a war zone of Afghanistan , I question whether or not the Marines guarding the consulate were allowed to defend themselves , much less the consulate grounds.

Where is the anger and outrage from Barack ?
He must have to wait for a polling...

See the upthread just posted with pics....

Libyans carried Chris’ body = dragged through the streets.

Libyans stood and fought to defend our post = They were moved to another location then betrayed.

There is no outrage , or anger from our fearless leader.

These are “his people” whom he supported, endorsed , and armed . We are still sending out money and support.

It should all end , .. and quit kissing the *sses of religious zealots.

Is this Axelrod’s (early)”October Surprise” to demonstrate Obummer’s foreign diplomacy and policy ?

The fact that both Lybia and Cairo went up simultaneously tells me that this was no ‘happening’.

Skip the Marines , send in Hillary and Huma Abedin Weiner .. and we can talk them to death.

“Today many Americans are asking, indeed I asked myself, how could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?”

Many might ask themselves - “How could the vicious dog that I showed so much love, that I liberated from a cage, that I saved from euthanasia and brought into my home attack me?”.

Those people would be fools.

Islam sucks.

Mohammed was a pedophile.

Just look at the horrifying conditions in which Islam’s billions of adherents live. Your religion begets your society, and muslim societies suck everywhere, 100% of the time.

The Koran states that Mohammed married Aisha when she was 6 years old, and consummated the relationship when she was 9 YEARS OLD. That’s pedophilia in any society in any era.

Islam sucks. Mohammed was a pedophile.

In the United States, we have a perfect First Amendment right to say what we think. I don’t much care whether Muslims are offended by what I think or say.

We also have a perfect Second Amendment right to help ensure the validity of our First Amendment rights.

"attack on the U.S. Consulate"

equal an attack on US soil and 4 American KIA's. War has once again been determined by the adversaries - 9/11/2001 and 9/11/2012. Our reaction matters - must be immediate and strong. And, it isn't within Obama, what with him being a Islamofacist sympathizer, a Black Theologist devotee, a Muslim de factor.

What reason has it been to throw his lot with the Muslims?

Did he really think they would vait until after the election before doing this? Did he tell them, like he told Medved, to hold back until after the election when he would have more latitude?

I think he has been duped by ME and may wax bellicose just to really show them how angry he is.../s

He will not allow that he has been duped but the whining should begin soon. All of those W House meetings with Muslim Brotherhood? How's that working out for you, Obama....they gauged you and felt they better move now, in case Romney beats Obama.

Obama is a known (weak) card to Muslim Brotherhood-they will ever be able to roll him; they don't know yet how Romney would roll under the circumstances.

Islamofascists saw Obama's weakness and saw 9/11 coming up. They love anniversaries. 9/11 (2001/2012)

Above: JMHO. And, who goes under the bus....Hildabeast?
