The governments of France, Britain and other Western nations joined the United States in temporarily closing many of their consulates in the Middle East and Africa recently. This is because of suspected threats by al-Qaida to attack.
Good idea, since we didn’t listen a year ago when our Benghazi, Libya, consulate was in imminent danger, and the administration and State Department did nothing to prevent the deaths of four Americans!
Wait a minute – I thought President Obama assured us nearly two years ago that al-Qaida was “on the run” and essentially defeated in the Middle East and Africa! What’s happening? Is it possible that our president snow-jobbed us to win the 2012 election? Oh no – tell me it ain’t so!
