There’s a report that our government knew of the attack 48 hours before it happened. You can’t blame this one on George Bush, but something makes me believe the Democrats and the media will try. The Independent, a UK news source, reports the following
“According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and ‘lockdown,’ under which movement is severely restricted.”
We’ve seen it coming. In fact, the Obama presidency started to unravel the day he took office with his hand on the Bible swearing before God and men to uphold the Constitution by closing with “So help me God.”
What’s kept President Obama’s presidency intact for the past four years is the accomplices in the media. His every foible, mis-statement, radical policy, international blunder, executive order, and ties to Islamists either never appeared in print or were buried deep in the fold of page 59 of the New York Times.
Sound criticisms of the president were always declared to be “code words” for imbedded racism in the Republican Party.
There’s no place to hide today. There are more networks than ABC, CBS, and NBC. CNN is in the ratings tank. The internet minute-by-minute explodes with news information. Photos and videos make their way to our computer screens within minutes of the events happening.
One of the things that helped end the Vietnam War was images of body bags and the daily casualty count.
Previous wars were fought in distant lands. News was mostly sanitized for American audiences. Hollywood got behind the war effort. They were cheerleaders for the troops. A number of them enlisted. Jimmy Stewart and Clark Gable come to mind. Baseball great Ted Williams put his baseball career on hold and served as a naval aviator (a U.S. Marine Corps pilot) during World War II and the Korean War.
For most Americans these wars were fought “over there.” “Over there” is now in our living rooms, offices, smart phones, tablets, and computer screens. Hit the refresh button, and there’s something new in the news.
When the stories of the embassy attacks hit the news, we were told that it was about some obscure anti-Muhammad video. Now we’re learning that the attacks were planned well in advance and were coordinated. It’s not coincidental that the attacks took place on 9/11. Were the attacks in retaliation of killing Osama bin Laden? Taking out the mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attack was always ripe for retaliation.
The U.S. embassy in Cairo was attacked by a mob chanting “Obama, Obama, we’re all Osama.” Support of “Arab Spring,” apologies, political deference, religious appeasement, bowing and scraping, and billions in foreign aid haven’t done a thing to placate the “we hate America” radical Muslims.
What did the media do to protect the candidate they got elected? They blame shifted, like Obama, the Democrats, and the media have been doing for four years. “It was Bush’s fault.” Now it’s Romney’s fault for exposing the ineptitude of this administration.
On the anniversary of the biggest and most frightening attack on American social, these embassies were left unprotected. You know that had George Bush been in office, the media and the Democrat candidate running against him would be putting out these things in triplicate. It’s all you would be seeing and hearing about. Here’s an example of media diversion:
“[H]ere’s Chris Matthews summing up the narrative du jour by insisting that ‘The tragedy in Benghazi that cost Ambassador Stevens his life unfortunately has been overshadowed by the desperate reach by Mitt Romney to secure political advantage.’”
Romney’s running for president. He needs to send a message to the voters and to the radical Islamists. He can’t sit back and look indecisive. That’s what got us into this mess.
Then there’s Hillary Clinton who is still blaming everybody but the radical murderers for what happened on America’s Second 9/11. Here’s how the complicit Washington Post massages the story:
“Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton took strong steps Thursday to distance the U.S. government from a movie that has sparked protests throughout the Muslim world, calling the film ‘disgusting and reprehensible’ but also condemning violence in response to it.
“‘The U.S. government has absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and messages,’ Clinton said. ‘But there is no justification — none at all — for responding to this video with violence.’”
The movie didn’t have a thing to do with the actions of these insane people.
Here’s what Nancy Pelosi had to say, “If they’re suggesting we should cut off assistance to Egypt,” Pelosi said of some Republicans in Congress, “I don’t agree with that.’” She’s just as insane. The tax payers will have $1.5 billion dollars stolen from them this year by Pelosi and the Democrats to fund who knows what in Egypt.
