Skip to comments.Obama to UN: It's Not My Fault Stevens is Dead
Posted on 09/25/2012 1:28:08 PM PDT by opentalk
Passing the buck in dramatic fashion on the world stage, President Barack Obama told the UN General Assembly this morning that the U.S. government was not responsible for the anti-Islam video that he once again blamed for recent attacks on U.S. embassies in the Middle East.
He added that more guards at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi would not have helped save Ambassador Chris Stevens, and that the real problem was "deeper causes" such as religious intolerance. "[I]t will not be enough to put more guards in front of an Embassy; or to put statements of regret, and wait for the outrage to pass," Obama told the assembled diplomats and heads of state. "If we are serious about those ideals, we must speak honestly about the deeper causes of this crisis....Today, we must affirm that our future will be determined by people like Chris Stevens, and not by his killers. Today, we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our United Nations."
...Obama added that the U.S. could not "ban" the video, because the "Constitution protects the right to practice free speech." He did not mention that his administration's policy is, in fact, that such speech can be restricted, and that the U.S. had co-sponsored a resolution with Egypt at the UN Human Rights Council in 2009 that would allow Islamist governments to ban such videos and claim they had the full support of the United States.

It’s really Bush’s fault - really! I’m just eye candy!
So, Bozo thinks 300 million Americans, some not very bright, are never to whisper a single word of criticism against the beloved religion?
Of course, he knows that’s not realistic. So, where does he want to go with this? I think I know.
the U.S. government was not responsible for the anti-Islam video
gee... that is EXACTLY the same thing,
that the MUSLIM producer of the video said!
Nakoula was lying again and is no Coptic author.
His cellmate, who testified that Nakoula was always reviewing the Quran, does not exclude the possibly that he is a Muslim who was reading his Quran and meditating on it.
He continually, from the beginning of the interview until the end, exonerated the U.S. Government of having any connection to the movie.
> Obama to UN: It’s Not My Fault Stevens is Dead
YES, IT IS, YOU SISSY.
Steven’s killers including you Barack obama. Air support offshore and a ton of US Marines to hold the fort till the support showed up would have turned this tragedy into a success
Barry, yes it is. The buck stops with you if you admit it or not. You hired Hillary, who shares the blame.
Agreed,tons out there but he needed his beauty sleep.....their BLOOD is on the hand of this inept administation.....GW would not have sleep if a diplomat was under attack.....
(and that the real problem was “deeper causes” such as religious intolerance)
Okay. Is Obama talking about the religious intolerance that drives muslims to kill each other and as many Christians and Jews as they can. or
Is he talking about his religious intolerance towards Christians and his attempts to destroy our society by pushing perversion on us??
OK I will make it simple....YES IT IS!
I’m sorry moderators.
This stupid fucking shit of a President has all the leadership ability of Pee Wee Herman! He’s still going on about that video. Try to at least act like the President of the United States instead of a scared little girl! Jesus Christ, if you ask for the job at least try to learn how to do it. He hasn’t learned a fucking thing! He is truly stupid and is arrogant without any reason to be arrogant. It’s one thing to be a clueless no-talent rookie who never should have had this job, but my God, to just stand up there and show your ignorance to the whole world without trying to improve your performance is arrogance on a grand scale. They need to fumigate the universities and this entire administration.
There's absolutely no call to denigrate Pee Wee Herman like that.
“Ambassador Stevens was just a bump in the road...” [to my re-election prospects.]
If Obama worked at it he might work his way up to becoming a pussy someday.
I’m sorry. You’re right.
Speaking seriously, I always object to anybody calling the Illegal a SOB because it’s such a terrible insult to dogs.
