Obama administration cant get its embassy story straight
The Washington Post's Right Turn ^ | September 14, 2012 | Jennifer Rubin

Jay Carney in the White House briefing room today:

(VIDEO AT LINK)

This is, to put it bluntly, horrifying. At the very least it is incoherent.

On one hand, the White House press secretary says we know the attacks are completely about a film, and not about the U.S. . . . but then we don’t have any information it wasn’t about a film.

Have we done some investigation? What about reports that people storming our embassies hadn’t seen or hear about the film? And does the administration not understand that radical jihadists use such incidents to spur Muslims to violence? I don’t know how shouts of “We are all Osama!” and the raising of an al-Qaeda flag on 9-11 could be any clearer.

Moreover, if Carney’s statement is really the view of the U.S. administration — namely, that murderous mobs are simply the result of insulting provocation — then why weren’t the initial statement from the Cairo embassy and its reiteration perfectly acceptable? After all the embassy said, in effect, we really, really think that film is awful...

That's what happens when you lie constantly, you end up forgetting your earlier lies. This'd be a good one to e-mail to all the Obots you know who think that he and Hillary are completely in control and know what they're doing.

The ‘apology tour’ didn’t make it a safer world or improve the world opinion of the US after all, huh Bam Bam? Evidently his world view didn’t include the possibility that he was 180 degrees WRONG. Probably crystallized when he saw images of himself burned in effigy, unless I give him too much credit. And that is possible. He really is not that smart.

Witnessing the free fall meltdown as a president begins to realize how over his head he really is...

Great article. Thanks for posting it 2ndDivisonVet.

From the article:

“If films are the problem, then the only “security” measure we can pursue in the Obama worldview is to crush free speech. Otherwise, no matter how many speeches this administration gives to soothe Muslims’ feelings, Americans will still be attacked. It’s the free speech, you see.”

Islam, as we all know, doesn’t have free speech but they do have a mandate to persecute blasphemers. In other words - your free speech allows you to insult, okay, I trump you because my faith believes I can kill you for it.

This is where the UN Resolution 16/18 comes to the aid of the Muslim Brotherhood. They say shut down your free speech and we won’t riot, burn, loot, or murder you. We’ll permit you to live under those circumstances only. Control speech and control the world which is, of course, the end goal of the MB.

Blarney Carney is simply spewing what he was told. He can’t think about it, because it’s not in his brain, it just goes from the paper to his eyes to his mouth.

The Obama team is painting themselves into a PR comer with their constant lying. They would have you belive that they did not know about the attacks but US bloggers DID. Notice this article is from 24 hours PRIOR to the attacks.

Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo

Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad, the Sunni Group, and Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya have issued a statement threatening to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the ground.

According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisonment and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay: “The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the “Blind Sheikh”], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released.”

There’s been a long-standing theory about truth vs. lie: When you speak the truth, you have no need to keep your story straight. That’s how I detect liars among me.

Probably the penultimate line of Ms. Rubin’s column should have read: “No wonder our foes think so little of us and our ALLIES are nervous.”

Let's Made a DEEEEAAALLL ! We agree, Obie, not to disparage you for the rest of your life as the worst President ever (not even close any longer), and a bad joke IF you withdraw from the race.

Don't rush to judgment, Obie. You're a relatively young man, and 30 or 40 years of bruising, stinging, biting, embarrassing criticism, and ostracization is nothing to sneeze at.
