|Amb. J.Christopher Stevens|
President Obama on the Arab Spring back in 2011:
"through the moral force of non-violence, the people of the region have achieved more change in six months than terrorists have accomplished in decades."
On Sept. 11 there was an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya which left the U.S. ambassador J.Christopher Stevens and three others dead.
Think about it; a U.S. Ambassador was killed by Islamic fundamentalists in Libya. The American people are outraged and so should President Obama.
|Obama Rose Garden|
The President gave a statement in the Rose Garden the next day. Have a look at way in which he gave the statement. He wasn't talking to the camera, he was talking to a piece of paper!! The President should have been outraged, unscripted, emotional and looking straight into the camera telling the world that 'you don't mess with America'!!!!
We got none of that. It was a feeble statement which wouldn't scare a bird; let alone a radical Islamic terrorist.
The riots have continued in Libya, Sudan, Yemen and in Egypt with protests outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
President Obama issued a statement:
"I don't think that we would consider them (Egypt) an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy,They're a new government that is trying to find its way. They were democratically elected. I think that we are going to have to see how they respond to this incident. If Egypt takes actions that indicate they're not taking responsibilities, as all other countries do where we have embassies, I think that's going to be a real big problem."So, Obama has refused to scold the Muslim Brotherhood who control Egypt and will continue to supply them with $1.5billion in aid for the coming year.
Governor Mitt Romney held a press conference (before Obama) in which he made the following statement:
|Romney Press Conference|
"We mourn their loss and join together in prayer that the spirit of the Almighty might comfort the families of those who have been so brutally slain.
Four diplomats lost their life, including the U.S. ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, in the attack on our embassy at Benghazi, Libya. And of course with these words I extend my condolences to the grieving loved ones who have left behind, as a result of these who have lost their lives in the service of our nation.
And I know that the people across America are grateful for their service. And we mourn their sacrifice.
America will not tolerate attacks against our citizens and against our embassies. We’ll defend also our constitutional rights of speech and assembly and religion.
We have confidence in our cause in America. We respect our Constitution. We stand for the principles our Constitution protects. We encourage other nations to understand and respect the principles of our Constitution, because we recognize that these principles are the ultimate source of freedom for individuals around the world.
I also believe the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing* with those who had breached our embassy in Egypt, instead of condemning their actions. It’s never too early for the United States government to condemn attacks on Americans and to defend our values."
*Romney was referring to the below statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo prior to the terrorist attack:
“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.”President Obama issued a tweet standing by the Embassy statement.
He later attacked the Romney statement on this crisis:
"Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. And as president, one of the things I've learned is you can't do that. That, you know, it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts. And that you've thought through the ramifications before you make 'em."American soil is under attack, an Ambassador has been killed and with riots continuing and more lives at stake, Obama is attacking Mitt Romney more than the people who carried out these coordinated terrorist acts.
America is perceived to be weak and radical Islam know it!
The world is finally coming round to the reality that so-called 'Arab Spring' was a vessel for Islamic fundamentalists to gain control of governments, enact Shariah Law and hasten the coming of the Caliphate.
Now that the facts are coming out for everyone to see; President Obama will have a hard time justifying his support of the Arab Spring.
