Just when the situation in Libya couldnt get much more embarrassing for the Obama administration, now comes the news that Ahmed Abu Khattala, a leader of the jihadist group Ansar al Shariah who was seen by witnesses directing the attack on the American consulate, is living openly and defiantly in Benghazi. He is lounging around a seaside hotel and breathing defiance in an interview with a New York Times reporter, bragging that Libyas nascent army is too chicken to come after him. He says he has no plans to go into hiding.
Although he denied being part of the attack, he admitted being on the scene and refused to condemn the murder of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. From a religious point of view, it is hard to say whether it is good or bad, he said, no doubt disingenuously.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. President Barack Obama declared Wednesday that the world has a new feeling about America and more respect for its leadership, weaving re-election themes into a commencement speech to jubilant graduates of the U.S. Air Force Academy.
We can say with confidence and pride: The United States is stronger, safer and more respected in the world, Obama told more than 1,000 graduates, dressed in their blue dress coats and yellow sashes for a ceremony in the Air Force football stadium.
You have to admire Commandante Zero at some level: That comment is sad, stupid, funny, absurd, dangerous and patently false, all at the same time.
