Obama vows to ‘never retreat’ from world after Libya deaths
Yahoonews ^ | 9/14/12 | Olivier Knox

"I think it was a planned, premeditated attack," Senate Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) said, according to Roll Call, the newspaper that covers Congress. But he said he did not know who carried out the attack.

"People don't go to demonstrate and carry RPGs and automatic weapons," sad Arizona Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on Levin's committee. "This was not a 'mob' action [or] a group of protesters."

Yeah. I guess now even the dupes at Yahoo news can shill for OB on this one.

Though, I must say, they are stretching it with this headline It makes no sense at all not even gramatically.

The Celebrity in Chief ordered campaign T-shirts while the 4 sets of remains returned to US soil.
His vow to never retreat carries no more weight than any other broken oath he’s taken.

Thanks ColdOne. Here’s some commentary from a site I, and I think all here, ordinarily avoid. But of course, it showed up as a news search hit on Google:

[snip] The war in Libya ended in October 2011 with the barbaric lynch-mob murder of Gaddafi. At the time, Secretary of State Clinton gloated over the former Libyan leader’s fate, laughingly declaring, “We came, we saw, he died.” Speaking in the aftermath of Stevens’ killing Wednesday, Clinton declared, “How could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save from destruction?” ...The same elements that she was lauding as “heroes” when they were sodomizing and lynching Gaddafi are the “savages” she and Obama now say must be “brought to justice.” [/snip — Bill Van Auken, World Socialist Web Site]

AND ordered them shipped to Andrews AFB first for his photo op, then to Dover.

Why doesn't he just pizz on their graves and get it over with? /sarc

Senator Levin did not get the memo. It’s all about a movie trailer. Just ask the White House and Hillary.

Although I believe the action was a preplanned military strike, a covert op, I don’t know the originator of the strike.

I also note a striking similarity in the behavior of Hillary Clinton, in this affair, as with nearly every other affair surrounding similar political timing in her career. Hillary has a penchant, learned from Bill, on identifying 2 groups who are somewhat polarized from one another, setting up a false catalytic event, then riding into the scene, describing it in her false worldview, which happens to be a worldly plausible explanation, and then attempts to play a worldly middle of the road position which others may then applaud and follow.

She sets up contrived conflicts then makes them extremely publicized, then works to redirect world opinion in her schema. (Think of Waco).

Anybody competent in mob control recognizes the tactics employed by Obama and Hillary simply set the stage to promote mob psychology worldwide against the US, Christians, and perhaps even homosexuals versus Islam and third world nations. Almost any action by any President other than what was witnessed from this Administration would have resulted in less rebellion against American interests, Christianity and even existing foreign governments in Islamic nations.

IMHO, the entire affair has been a covert op well controlled and orchestrated by Clinton and Obama. It reeks of her Modus Operendi characteristic since the 60s. The worldly thinking bears her signature. If it wasn’t her, then others have her number and can play her like a puppet.

So, was he in "retreat" mode until this disaster?

You lead from the front; not from the behind!

No-one else is talking about retreating, Mr Present. America wants justice for our dead, no more aid to these backwater countries, and a gigantic bitch-slap when they attack our embassies. Your disarming of Marines, apologizing to the savages and bowing to their leaders is retreat.

Thanks for referencing HRC’s disgraceful reaction to mob killing Qaddafi. Spiking the ball indeed...

Great. You purposely destroyed order in that part of the world and don’t want to own up to it much less stop the madness.

On another thread, many, including your humble hummingbird, thought those t-shirts were for the memorial when the victims of Libya returned.

I can't remember the poster, but apparently those t-shirts were at a memorial for those wounded or killed in Arizona.

But it doesn't make a difference. There, in Arizona, they still campaigned and gave out t-shirts at what should have been a solemn ceremony.

That so many of us on that thread thought the t-shirts were for the returning embassy staff says something more about Obama than for us, I think. We can actually see this administration giving out t-shirts, like they did in Arizona.

Actual translation: He is currently retreating

Obama is running away from Sudan and Tunisia while claiming he will never run away. This guy is a clown.
