US ambassador killed in consulate attack in Libya
TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) – The American ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were killed when a mob of protesters and gunmen overwhelmed the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, setting fire to it in outrage over a film that ridicules Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Libya’s new president apologized Wednesday for the attack, which underlined the lawlessness plaguing a region trying to recover from months of upheaval.
Ambassador Chris Stevens, 52, died as he and a group of embassy employees went to the consulate to try to evacuate staff as a crowd of hundreds attacked the consulate Tuesday evening, many of them firing machine-guns and rocket-propelled grenades. SOURCE
This was an ATTACK on the United States of America. This is just as much an attack on the American people as was the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. An American Embassy is sovereign AMERICAN soil, no matter where it stands, as is the embassy of any other nation that is built here in the USA.
Now, Barack Hussein Obama *condemns, in the strongest language*, these attacks on American citizens and embassies, but the 1st reaction from the Obama administration was to apologize to the Libyans and Egyptians for whatever it was that WE did to upset their delicate sensitivities.
I listened to Obama grovel, I heard him say, “I condemn these attacks in the strongest language”. I heard him say that we are going to work with the Libyan authorities as THEY track down the people that did this.
I have received email communication from my U.S. Congressman, Pete Sessions, telling me, “I strongly condemn the horrific attack in Libya that tragically took the lives of four brave Americans who have dutifully served our nation, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. I join the American people in offering my sincere condolences to their families and loved ones during this time of unthinkable tragedy.”
This was the initial reaction from Mitt Romney: “I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi,” Romney said. “It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.” SOURCE
Today the story from Romney is reported as this: Still, Romney stood by his sharp statement Tuesday night criticizing the Obama administration. On Wednesday he said that statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was “akin to apology” and a “severe miscalculation.” SOURCE
It seems to me that Romney had a lot more ANGER in him over this than did the Poser in Chief, but here is what is making me, and many other Americans angry beyond belief; we are hearing our elected officials, and those that want to lead this nation, offer their condemnations, in *the strongest possible language*.
What we’re NOT hearing is any of these people calling for a military strike, retribution, pay-back, bombing these people until they BEG us to stop! We’re not seeing the B-52′s loaded with old fashioned IRON BOMBS as they are flown over Benghazi in patterns designed to inflict the most damage possible as we carpet bomb these people for what they did!
When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor we didn’t hear a call of *condemnation in the strongest possible language*, we heard a Declaration of WAR!
These actions are *condemned in the strongest possible language*? Yes indeed, that ought to make the *Religion of Peace* think twice before they attack again. Strong language always works … right?
Barack Hussein Obama contends, insists actually, that *we are NOT at war with Islam*.
I beg to differ; we ARE at war with Islam, they started it, many years ago, they continue it today and Barack Hussein Obama lets them get by with it, all the while taking the side of Islam and Muslims at any opportunity!
Obama has got to go, but if Romney is going to be a *turn the other cheek* POTUS, he will be as dangerous to America as is Obama. It’s time to fight, it’s time to attack and it’s time to see if Romney really has the BALLS to get it done!
