This is our foreign policy?

Concerning the recent attacks on our embassies – particularly the Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, and the murder of our ambassador and three other Americans: Contrary to what the Obama administration first reported, it was a planned and coordinated attack.

The administration first claimed it was a spontaneous reaction to a video that presented the prophet Muhammad in a bad light! As we now know, it was nothing of the sort, but planned to coincide with the anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.

The ambassador was very concerned about security there, and had warnings of a pending attack, but was refused any further security arrangements by the administration, and did not even have an armed security team for his personal protection. He was even denied permission to install a barbed-wire fence around the embassy! Perhaps to the liberal mind, it was considered provocative to have armed Americans parading around, and the threat to the ambassador and others did not justify taking this step.

Now we have seen the consequences! Instead they were told to hire a body guard from the local population, which he apparently did. The emergency plan in case of attack was to go to a safe house at an undisclosed location, but the local bodyguard supposedly passed this information and the whereabouts of the safe house to the very people planning the attack. We know some of this information from a CNN reporter who visited the site of the attack and found the ambassador’s diary days later. Classified documents were strewn around the area, and the site had still not been secured at the time she found the diary.

This is one heck of a way to run our foreign policy, and is just another example of the “how can we fool them today?” philosophy of this entire administration!

That is too funny! Evidently Obama’s new catch phrase is: “The buck stops over there”, or maybe “The buck don’t stop here!”.

It can go along with his other new catch phrase, “speak softly and carry a wet noodle”.

' many bussiness have lost

' many bussiness have lost money in their efforts to make the economy look bad"

Dang, just snorted coffee up my nose on that one. Seriously????? A business would purposely loose their "behinds" and close shop just to make the economy look bad. Delusional comes to mind.

Well, when the president and
Unpublished

Well, when the president and commander and chief considers the death of an ambassador a "bump in the road", yet will refer to his own constituents as "the enemy" because they are not going to vote as he wishes, you can expect your foriegn policy to be somewhat suspect. If you look at it from the perspective that Obama's "side" may not be us, it starts making more sense.

Benghazi
Unpublished

We can certainly wait,Jack, to find out what happened at Benghazi whilst we should have already tried to find out why Condoleeza Rice failed to heed that 9-11 was going to happen. The Republican hypocrites!

Clinton can take

Clinton can take responsibility for the poor security at the embassy but she can not take blame or responsibility for the post attack intelligence that supposedly kept Obama in the dark (if you believe Obama) for 13 days! Remember that Obama spoke about the video at the UN on Sept 24. Now either Obama was kept in the dark for 13 days or so, Obama simply never ask and didn't care and wrote a BS speech, or Obama misled during his speech on purpose! I don't see any other choices and none of them are flattering to Obama!

Skeptically Griggsy Kobar

SkepticGriggsy Kobar towers was bombed, World Trade Center was bombed, two US Embassies were bombed and the USS Cole was bombed and Clinton did NOTHING, REPEAT, NOTHING! Then you ask why Condie didn't do any thing and call us hypocrites?

Janie Gorlic

Don't forget SkepticGriggsey that Janie Gorlic (Clinton Staffer) wrote a policy that prevented CIA and other over seas intelligence agencies from sharing information with the domestic intelligence agencies like the FBI hampering efforts to prevent terror attacks in the USA!
