He won’t do anything. He would willingly sacrifice Americans on the altar of political correctness, than annoy his busom buddies.

Look for Hillary to be too busy with this latest crisis to be able to testify on Benghazi. That, or she’ll pass out again.

Our president is no doubt pleased the Algerian military acted promptly to get this story off the front pages, even if a few eggs were regrettably broken.

Now lets get back to what really matters - Obama's political agenda.

One of the Islamic demands was for the US to stop interfering in Islamic territories. Obama is determined to capitulate to the Islamic demands, so don’t expect any retaliation or response from Obama. If Obama was willing to throw the Libyan ambassador under his bus, he will throw oil workers under a train to appease the Islamists.
