Obama Bows To Islamic Extremism

Larry Johnson - The attacks on the US diplomats and US facilities in Egypt and Libya is a complete and total failure of U.S. foreign policy. The blame for this ultimately rests with Barack Obama, who has indulged the naive fantasy that the Arab spring is a harbinger of democracy in the the Middle East.
Well, you saw “Arab democracy” on display yesterday in Cairo and Benghazi. It has been 33 years since a U.S. Ambassador was killed in the line of duty. Way to go Barack. You are one experienced foreign policy maven.
Blame also lies with Hillary Clinton. No Embassy, except for the Embassy in Kabul, has a U.S. military force at hand that can come to the rescue in a timely fashion. We must rely on the host nation to ensure the safety and security of our diplomats. Both Egyptian and Libyan officials are responsible for allowing these attacks on our people and property.
Mitt Romney was correct in voicing outrage at the cowardly surrender monkeys in the Obama Administration, who allowed the following “apology” to go out:
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others
No religion has the right to murder others in the name of their god. Yet, this is the hallmark of Islam.
How should we respond? Cut off Egypt’s access to the billions of US tax payer dollars and close our Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Harsh? Yes. But we must have a strong response.
I’ll be tied up for the next six hours, but will get back on this later.
