Vanity: Did Obama Ignore Attack on Cairo Embassy in Rose Garden Statement on Libya Just Now?
Wednesday, September 12, 2012 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/12/2012 7:53:35 AM PDT by kristinn

I tried to pay attention to Obama's remarks on the murder of our ambassador and staff in LIbya. Did I miss his comments on the same day attack on our embassy in Cairo and the raising of the al Qaeda flag?

IMHO they are going to try to get as much space between the two incidents as possible. Otherwise the attacks may look coordinated.

Coordination would run contrary to their current statements that the attack in Libya was done by a "small group of savages" in a country that we will continue to support.

Not word about Cairo! I thought it was a weak statement from Zero! Just a strong statement of appeasement, not outrage! Then he just had to make it all about himself with recounting his visit to Arlington yesterday.

Obama may have known about Cairo in advance the Israeli's did!

Egypt intelligence warns of attacks on Israel, US embassies By JPOST.COM STAFF 09/11/2012 16:58 Egypt's General Intelligence Service warned that a jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo, according to a report Tuesday by Egypt Independent, citing a secret letter obtained by Al-Masry Al-Youm.

Coordinated? No. These are isolated incidents, just like the Sept 11 attacks 11 years ago, the July attacks on the London Underground, the attacks on the trains in Spain, the embassy attacks in . . . all isolated incidents.

Not only was it a weak statement but a very weak delivery. His intonations seemed all wrong to me, making him sound bored. He seemed to want to be somewhere else.

‘..and the raising of the al Qaeda flag?’

Not Al Qaeda! The MSM’s largest internet news source and Obama campaign shill, Yahoo News, describes it as: “Ultra conservative Islamists that raised a black flag with Arab writing”.

And of course, it was a mere coinkydence that the attacks occurred on 9/11....right?

Our enemies are laughing at us to our faces...because we have “one of them” residing in our WH.

We have forgotten that Obama's foreign policy fiasco began four years ago, in the speech to the Muslim world at the mosque in Egypt.

How's that working out for you, eh Barry?

If you do a search of “Egypt intelligence warns of attacks on Israel” you can find many such links yourself.

Try it.

I don’t usually listen to him, but captive audience, somewhat, in car on way to work. He spent a good portion of the speech talking about how wonderful and committed he was during the anniversary of 9/11 yesterday, too busy to know these attacks had happened or to respond sooner.

Well, yeah....more than one residing in the WH. But then, most of the radical leftists (like Hillary) live elsewhere.

Did you notice how haggard, worn and ugly she looked today? Her job is really aging her .....fast. I wonder if she thinks it was worth it. The price paid for the power, that is.

For Immediate Release September 12, 2012
Remarks by the President on the Deaths of U.S. Embassy Staff in Libya
Rose Garden

10:43 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger.

Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We’re working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I’ve also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.

Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

Already, many Libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens’s body to the hospital, where we tragically learned that he had died.

It’s especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save. At the height of the Libyan revolution, Chris led our diplomatic post in Benghazi. With characteristic skill, courage, and resolve, he built partnerships with Libyan revolutionaries, and helped them as they planned to build a new Libya. When the Qaddafi regime came to an end, Chris was there to serve as our ambassador to the new Libya, and he worked tirelessly to support this young democracy, and I think both Secretary Clinton and I relied deeply on his knowledge of the situation on the ground there. He was a role model to all who worked with him and to the young diplomats who aspire to walk in his footsteps.

Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. Today, the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on. I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of those who love them back home.

Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.

But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.

We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory, and let us continue their work of seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.

Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost and may God bless the United States of America.

END
10:48 A.M. EDT
