September 11, 2012 - and Obama Apologizes
IBD EDITORIALS ^ | September 13, 2012

Obama Record: Four Americans are killed in Libya, our consulate burned and our Egyptian embassy stormed on the anniversary of 9/11 after we apologize for a film allegedly "insulting to Islam." Arab Spring, Mr. President?

Maybe President Obama shouldn't have skipped all those national intelligence briefings. The burning of our Libyan consulate in Benghazi, the murder of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others, including two U.S. Marines, and the storming of our embassy in Egypt after our diplomats apologized for a film made in the U.S. should show just who is the foreign policy novice in the 2012 presidential campaign.

The Obama administration is attempting to walk back the damage done by an apology issued by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo for a 14-minute trailer for a film called "The Innocence of Muslims" posted on YouTube, part of a two-hour, little-seen film produced by Sam Bacile, a 52-year-old California real estate developer who identifies himself as an Israeli Jew.

As the late, great Andrew Breitbart famously said in a tweet to someone who demanded he apologize for this or that, "Apologize for what? Should we apologize for the exercise of free speech in a democracy?"

Yet that is what the U.S. Embassy in Cairo did.

"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions," the statement read in part. It went on to say that the U.S. "firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."

This craven statement that the Obama administration has disavowed was issued before the embassy attack in Cairo where a mob stormed the compound...

The Secretary of State is ultimately responsible for security at our embassies around the world. Is there anyone out here who thinks that the crickets would be chirping over at the MSM studios if Condoleeza Rice had been in charge when an ambassador without any Marine protection was killed during a time that would warrant a heightned security alert even if there were no distractions about some insulting film enraging the local populace?

Are we certain that two marines were killed? also how was the ambassador killed? I first hear it was smoke inhalation, then he was shot...and I’m reading that he was in the hospital and talking to a surgeon trying to revive him... does that mean the mob then took him from the hospital and dragged him in the streets? What is fact and fiction here?

The attacks in Libya and Egypt are more evidence that Obama's foreign policy of appeasement and apology leaves us with friends that don't trust or respect us and enemies that do not fear us. Obama has led from behind on Libya, Syria and Iran. Rather than an "Arab Spring," we face a region dominated by Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Muslim Brotherhood, and governed by Shariah law — while Iran patiently builds its Islamic nuclear bomb.

I am seriously worried for America - I can only imagine how the Israelis are feeling right now.

If it’s up to the Obama administration, we will never know the truth of what happened.

Does anyone think anything like this would happen if had anyone other then 0bama was President on the anniversary of 09-11 on the same year the US Seals got Bin Laden?

Any even marginally competent Executive would of had the Embassies on lock down expecting something like this.

Moochelle doesn’t go to the mideast with Barry.

She didn’t go with him to Turkey. Or Saudi Arabia. Or Iraq. (For reference, Laura Bush went to Dubai, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia).

I don’t remember seeing her accompany Barry on his big trip/speech in Egypt either.

I think its some Sharia/women don’t show their faces or drive cars thing that Barry is worried about.

Looking at the live feed what I’m seeing is a target rich environment what I don’t see is a US CIC with the cojones to deal with it. God Bless Our Troops and give ‘em bullets & lots of them!

Ambassadors and envoys have been untouchable for thousands of years. Any assault was deemed an act of war and demanded an appropriate response. A sternly worded note was not appropriate.
What was our response? A sternly worded note and sending in an FBI team to gather evidence. Does 0bama really expect the host nations to do anything with the evidence?

Idiots are guzzling the Kool-Aid by the gallon, served up with gusto by the lame stream press. After all, they invented this disgusting fraud of a president.

Last lines in this piece:

A little more than four years ago, Hillary Clinton suggested then-Democratic primary opponent Barack Obama was so naive on the world stage he'd need a "foreign policy instruction manual" should he win.

She produced the now-famous "3 a.m. phone call ad" that questioned his expertise and readiness for the top job. History has proved her right.

At the convention, Obama and his supporters reminded us that "Osama is dead, and GM is alive." Well, now Amb. J. Christopher Adams and two U.S. Marines are dead too, and that phone is still ringing.

You can bet your next paycheck that we'll see Islamic Jihad ramp up until the election in November - as the effort to launch an Iranian nuke aimed at Tel Aviv ramps up with equal zeal.

I can not help but think the world is on the doorstep of Armageddon... and I have to ask, is Romney, or our military up to the task of at least postponing that?

"...this man really has a chance of winning this Nov?"

Major media are dedicated to shoving the Obama twit over the finish-line ahead of Romney - and a huge number of the 'conservatives' in this nation swear they'll not vote for the Republican candidate.

So yes - at this moment it looks like there is a chance the Muzzie-lover in the Oval Office could win again - that is, unless many self-proclaimed 'conservatives' wake up and vote against the worst president this nation has ever had.

Netanyahu gets the cold shoulder.

The embassy in Cairo puts out an apology for a movie most of the rioters know nothing about.

Former deputy national security adviser: US response to embassy attack ‘bizarre and unacceptable’

0bama sends a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel taking that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.

We don't support Israeli attack, US tells Iran

The "movie" turns out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Quite a day of unfortunate coincidences. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" to the Muslim world to take out Israel.
