    Riehl World View ^ | September 16, 2012 | Dan Riehl
    It was previously noted that, despite billions in aid over the years, Sudan turned down an Obama administration request to deploy 50 Marines to protect Americans serving at the American Embassy in Sudan. It was subsequently reported that the State Department withdrew non-essential personnel given the refusal.Now, the Sudan Tribune is reporting it as having been an Obama administration demand, one important enough to require the involvement of Vice President Biden, who was also rebuffed by the Sudanese government. It appears as though Sudan is intent on humiliating the Obama administration by reporting the controversy as they do. Following a violent protest in Friday over an...

    On Wednesday September 12, 2012 blogger Speak With Authority discovered that five days before 9-11, the US State Department sent out a memo announcing no credible security threats against the United States on the anniversary of 9-11. The Overseas Security Advisory Council, who posted the memo, is part of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security under the U.S. Department of State. The OSAC memo said: Terrorism and Important Dates Global 9/6/2012 OSAC currently has no credible information to suggest that al-Qa’ida or any other terrorist group is plotting any kind of attack overseas to coincide with the upcoming anniversary of September...
  • Mitt Romney’s Last-Ditch Strategy: Inflame the Base (Continuing last week's meme)

    The Daily Beast ^ | September 16, 2012 | Michael Tomasky
    Why is Team Romney slamming Obama's foreign policy as Americans die overseas? Michael Tomasky says they can't win the swing vote, so they're going with Plan B: Rile up the base. They keep piling on. You’d think Mitt Romney and team would have stopped with the foreign-policy attacks— if not because of the political costs, then at least because real, living Americans are now under very serious threat in a number of Middle Eastern cities. But no. Instead they keep at it, with Paul Ryan and old “Blackjack” Bennett pressing ever onward at the Values Voter Summit on Friday. Do...

    Cindy Lee Garcia tells the website that she was hired last summer for a small part in a movie she was told would be called "Desert Warriors," about life in Egypt 2,000 years ago (Islam is about 1,400 years old). She told Gawker "It wasn't based on anything to do with religion, it was just on how things were run in Egypt. There wasn't anything about Muhammed or Muslims or anything and that, according to Gawker, "In the script and during the shooting, nothing indicated the controversial nature of the final product. Muhammed wasn't even called Muhammed; he was "Master...

    September 13, 2012 Stunner: ‘The Security People Just All Ran Away’ David Steinberg From The Independent’s breaking story, which focuses on the U.S. failure to heed a 48-hour warning of threats to the embassy: According to security sources the consulate had been given a “health check” in preparation for any violence connected to the 9/11 anniversary. In the event, the perimeter was breached within 15 minutes of an angry crowd starting to attack it at around 10pm on Tuesday night. There was, according to witnesses, little defence put up by the 30 or more local guards meant to protect the...
  • Huntsman Plays The Useful Idiot For Andrea Mitchell's Romney-Bashing

    s Jon Huntsman headed the way of Charlie Crist? When the 2016 Dem convention rolls around, will we see the also-ran GOP presidential nomination-seeker on the podium, seconding Hillary's nomination? You've got to wonder after Huntsman's toadying performance today as he made the MSNBC rounds. After appearing on Morning Joe earlier, Huntsman turned up on Andrea Mitchell's show. Mitchell posed a laughably-loaded question, bashing Mitt Romney's response to the Obama administration's handling of the embassy attacks. The haughty Huntsman was only too happy to play the useful idiot, concurring that there was "a lot to the criticism" and ripping Romney...
  • Obama Praises Libya’s Post-Qaddafi Leaders at U.N. (9/20/2011. Blast to the past)

    ny times ^ | 9/20/2011 | HELENE COOPER and NEIL MacFARQUHAR
    President Obama on Tuesday extended to Libya’s transitional leader a diplomatic honor never offered his predecessor, meeting formally with Mustafa Abdel-Jalil at the United Nations and heralding the victory of Libyan rebels who brought an end to the 42-year reign of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. It was not quite a victory lap, but it came pretty close. Mr. Obama credited his new doctrine with helping to topple the man whom Ronald Reagan once famously called the “mad dog of the Middle East.” And he held Libya up as “a lesson in what the international community can achieve when we stand together...

    The Money Quotes: "The US prosecutor-general said on Wednesday that four people were being questioned after Tuesday's events. Nine Coptic Egyptian-Americans were also put on an airport watch list. They are believed to have contributed to the production of the anti-Islam film that led to the embassy protest."

    Tuesday's assaults on the U.S. Embassies in Benghazi and Cairo have injected foreign policy into the Presidential campaign, but suddenly the parsons of the press corps are offended by the debate. They're upset that Mitt Romney had the gall to criticize the State Department for a statement that the White House itself disavowed. We're referring to the statement issued Tuesday under the headline "U.S. Embassy Condemns Religious Incitement." The statement came in response to Muslim protests against a 13-minute anti-Islamic video making the rounds on YouTube. In response to anger in Egypt at the video, the Embassy in Cairo issued...

    According to the White House calendar, there is no public record of President Barack Obama attending his daily intelligence briefing--known as the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB)--in the week leading up to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American members of his staff:
