In a post 9-11 world, is the Obama Administrating operating as if it is September 10, 2001?
Four Americans, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Snowden Woods and Glen Doherty, were murdered in Libya on 9-11 at the US Consulate in Benghazi. The haunting and heinous pictures at the Daily Mail show that these Americans heroes were dragged to their death. Now we learn the following, 3 days before the attacks on the US Consulate, local Libyan officials warned the United States of the situation in Libya and the deteriorating security in Benghazi.
Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.
He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn’t good for international business.
“The situation is frightening, it scares us,” Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded.
Mabrouk said it was not the first time he has warned foreigners about the worsening security situation in the face of the growing presence of armed jihadist groups in the Benghazi area.
Check out Powerline, how could the US have been so ill prepared? And we are supposed to believe that Obama is great on foreign policy and Sec. of State Hillary Clinton is the end all be all?
” … the situation at the State Department in one word: “Chaos.” The working assumption is that several American embassies may have been penetrated, or are vulnerable to attack, because so many of them rely on local residents for staff needs at the embassy, and as such may be in a position to breach security if they have been recruited by Al Qaida. Moreover, the full story of the attack on the Benghazi consulate is much worse than we have been told…”
Egypt’s General Intelligence Service warned that a jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo, according to a report Tuesday by Egypt Independent, citing a secret letter obtained by Al-Masry Al-Youm.
According to the report, the attack is being planned by Global Jihad, the group suspected of killing 16 Egyptian border guards in Sinai on August 5.
Obama Administration Blames Movie, Says Not Directed at US Policy, Not to the Administration, Not to the American Poeple … UNREAL!
Jay Carney becomes the Baghdad Bob of the Obama Administration … Obama has found nwe person to blame other than George W. Bush.
How out of touch, clueless or just plain wrong could the Obama Administration really be? Obama White House spokesman actually said the following with a straight face when discussing the Middle East that is on fire. Jay Carney told reporters today that the Middle East protests were in response to a video, not directed at United States policy, not to the Administration (of course not), and not toward the America people. Because when it comes down to it, Obama and his minions have to save Obama, the hell with everything else. As stated at the Daily Caller, the most important thing to remember with the fact that the Middle East is on fire is that it has nothing to do with the Obama Administration and its policies.
Sorry President Barack Obama, from the apologetic Cairo speech, to thumbing your nose at Israel, to your notion that the Arab Spring would promote democracy, to sitting on your hands when Iranians wanted freedom to your lack of response to the current chaos in the Middle East that say four Americans murdered and dragged through the streets … YOU BUILT THIS!
From the Washington Free Beacon:
CARNEY: We also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration, or the American people, but it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be be reprehensible and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.
Again, this is not in any way justifying violence, and we have spoken very clearly out against that and condemned it. And the president is making sure in his conversations with leaders around the region that they are committed as hosts to diplomatic facilities to protect both personnel and buildings and other facilities that are part of the U.S. representation in those countries.
Talk about playing politics with the crisis in the Middle East. Obama and his minions will do and say anything to deflect the blame from the explosion that took place in Egypt and Libya and the escalated to 21 countries. Obama and his spin machine have tried to tout Obama as strong on foreign policy. Sorry, appeasement is never a wise idea for foreign policy. The VIDEO was merely an excuse for radical Islam to pounce. So we are supposed to believe that four murdered Americans in Libya, chants of death to the USA, burning of likenesses of Obama in effigy and protests across the Middle East and the world a just a result of a video? How small is this president? Or is he just that dangerously naive? An ounce of leadership would have been the call Mr. President, not continuing to to be the Campaigner in Chief.

Democrat Kirstin Powers Blasts Obama and Bias Media After Mideast Embassy Attacks … More Outrage over Romney’s Comments Than Embassy Attack
When even the LEFT cannot take what the LEFT are doing …
KUDOS to Democrat Kristen Powers for having the honesty and integrity to blast the MSM for their collusion and mob attack against Mitt Romney for his statement following the US Embassy attacks and against the Obama Administration for their silence after the attacks. I was expecting Kristen to say at one point, “I yam what I yam ! and I’ve had all I can stand, I can’t stands no more!” Careful Kristen, you might have your press and moonbat credentials revoked.
Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
I give Christen Powers a lot of credit for going against and exposing the corrupt media complex who are in the pocket of Barack Obama and the Democrat party. She pointed out the obvious, but what is never said, the MSM had more outrage over Romney’s comments than they did for the fact that US Embassy’s were attacked, the US flag burned, Islamic flags flown over our embassies and four Americans killed, including the US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
Did Obama Administration know and when did he know it …
This could be huge and one of those things that could bring down a Presidency, ala Jimmy Carter. Barack Obama and his minions have touted him as a foreign policy hawk, yet the actions that occurred the other day and the comedy of errors in releasing appeasement press releases and allowing them to stay up as our US Embassies were being attacked and over run lead many to question just who is in charge, if any one at all? The Middle East burns as Barack Obama campaigns away. As reported at The Drudge Report:
Exclusive: America ‘was warned of embassy attack but did nothing’…
State Dept ‘had credible information 48 hours before’…
Revealed: Inside story of ambassador’s assassination…
Sensitive documents go missing…
Exposed: Names of Libyans who are working with Americans…
Was ‘revenge for drone strike’…
‘There were 400 attackers’…
OBAMA ADMINSITRATION DENIES…
PAPER: Egypt intelligence warned on Sept. 4 of possible attacks…
According to the Independent, the Obama Administration was warned of an embassy attack but did nothing. It is being reported that, “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.” Many are questioning a couple of things that occurred that day. One, how does anyone think that sending out an appeasement PR statement against the anti-Mohammed movie think that would work; two, how was it allowed to stay up as long as it did; three, where was the beefed up security on 9-11 anniversary and four, how was a US Ambassador allowed to be in a location that had so little protection and security on 9-11?
The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal.
American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.
The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the “safe house” in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed “safe”.
Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.
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.
Yup, I guess President Barack Obama does not need daily intelligence meeting, the turmoil and explosion in the Middle East is a perfect example. BO’s got it covered and is handling it perfectly. His position, hope and pray it just goes away. As Marc A. Thiessen writes in the WAPO: Obama alone: This president does not need intel briefers.
How long had it been since President Obama attended his daily intelligence meeting in the lead-up to the Sept. 11 attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Egypt and Libya? After all, our adversaries are known to use the anniversary of 9/11 to target the United States.
According to the public schedule of the president, the last time the Obama attended his daily intelligence meeting was Sept. 5 — a week before Islamist radicals stormed our embassy in Cairo and terrorists killed our ambassador to Tripoli. The president was scheduled to hold the intelligence meeting at 10:50 a.m. Wednesday, the day after the attacks, but it was canceled so that he could comfort grieving employees at the State Department — as well he should. But instead of rescheduling the intelligence briefing for later in the day, Obama apparently chose to skip it altogether and attend a Las Vegas fundraiser for his re-election campaign. One day after a terrorist attack.
Turmoil & Protests Spread to Yemen, Tunisia and Still Going on in Cairo, Egypt as President Obama Continues to Campaign
Barack Obama, Commander in Chief?
The protests in Egypt and deadly riots in Libya and Egypt have spilled over now to Yemen and Tunisia.Protesters in Yemen climbed the US Embassy walls ripping down the American flag yelling “death to America”. After waiting for hours following the attacks of out foreign embassies and the death of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans in Libya, Barack Obama claimed that we would get those responsible for these heinous acts. Then what did Obama, the Commander in Chief do? Well, he went on to campaign in Nevada of course become the Campaigner in Chief and completely trivializing the fact that four Americans were dead, murdered at a US Consulate on 9-11 on his watch. As reported at the Politico, a Consulate that had no Marines protesting it on of all days, the anniversary of 9-11. How could there have been such a screw up? Right Scoop asks why the MSM is not posing the question to Obama, why was this facility so ill prepared and protected, especially on 9-11? Of course we and most honest thinking people know the answer is because the MSM is in the tank for Obama.
In Sana, witnesses said Yemeni security forces had tried to disperse a crowd at the fortified embassy compound in the east of Sana, the capital. But protesters broke through an outer perimeter protecting the embassy, clambering over a high wall and setting fire to a building.
They were forced to retreat after trying to plunder furniture and computers, the witnesses said.
Security forces guarding the embassy fired into the air as protesters set fire to two vehicles and burned tires. Protesters tore down and burned an American flag, replacing it with their own banner proclaiming the Islamic faith, witnesses said.
The protests and riots continue in Cairo, Egypt as President Barack Obama continue to escalate with no end in sight. Obviously, the stern words by Barack Obama yesterday have fallen on deaf Muslim ears. The protests are supposed to be even larger on Friday as Muslims get ready for Friday prayer.
CNN: Protests ramp up at embassies in Tehran, Switzerland, Cairo, Yemen
Riot police fired warning shots and tear gas early Thursday outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to keep hundreds of protesters, while demonstrators in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a breached a wall at the American mission, witnesses and government officials said.
The protests are the latest to roil the Middle East over the online release of a film produced in the United States that denigrates Prophet Mohammed.
Several thousand protesters demonstrated outside the embassy in Sana’a, with some breaching the embassy’s security wall.
“Given recent regional developments, earlier this morning, angry protesters unfortunately flooded the security perimeter of the U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen and breached the embassy’s wall,” according to a statement released by Yemen through its embassy in Washington.
Egyptians Protesters Chant “Monica! Monica!” and Throw Tomotoes & Shoes at Motorcade As Sec of State Hillary Clinton Drives By (Video)
Oh that Obama Arab Spring … America, how’s that “Araby-Springy” thing working out for ya?
Didn’t the Egyptian protesters get the memo, Bill Clinton did not have sexual relations with that woman, miss Lewinky, not a single time? I guess not. Egyptians Protesters chanted “Monica! Monica!” and threw tomatoes, shoes and bottles at the motorcade of Barack Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as they drove by. Many in Egypt are protesting over the US government siding with the Muslim Brotherhood in the recent elections.
Protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s motorcade on Sunday during her first visit to Egypt since the election of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.
A tomato struck an Egyptian official in the face, and shoes and a water bottle landed near the armoured cars carrying Clinton’s delegation in the port city of Alexandria.
A senior state department official said that neither Clinton nor her vehicle, which were around the corner from the incident, were struck by any of the projectiles.
Protesters chanted: “Monica, Monica”, a reference to Former President Bill Clinton’s extra-marital affair. Some chanted: “leave, Clinton”, Egyptian security officials said.
Instapundit muses over the fact that the LEFT joked when one guy threw a shoe at former President George W. Bush, this must be so much more funny seeing that it was a massive crowd that did so and chanted as well. Hmm?
Prominent Christian Egyptians Snubbed Cairo Meeting with Obama Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Claim US Backed Islamists Muslim Brotherhood
As reported at MSNBC, prominent Christian Egyptians snubbed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton because they claim that the Barack Obama administration favored the Muslim Brotherhood over other secular parties in Egypt. Honestly, can you blame them? As stated at Atlas Shrugs, “Why isn’t this splashed all over the Obama-media? No, the enemedia is too obsessed with the presidential year’s “Haliburton” ….Bain Capitol. How is the whole world know who and what Obama is, and the American people don’t?
Prominent Christian Egyptians snubbed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday because they feel the U.S. administration favors Islamist parties over secular and liberal forces in society at the expense of Egypt’s 8 million Christians.
The critical theme was repeated by others Sunday in Cairo and Alexandria despite Clinton denying U.S. interference in Egyptian elections.
The politicians, businessmen and clerics who snubbed Clinton were supposed to take part in meetings between Clinton and influential members of civil society.
Coptic Bishop Morcos and Evangelical church leader Safwat al Bayadi refused to meet with Clinton because of what they characterized as interference in Egyptian internal affairs and U.S. support for Islamists while ignoring the majority of Egyptians.
Allen West or Barack Obama, you make the call …
Allen West, a man wise beyond his years. A year ago US Rep. Allen West (R-FL) told supporters, “I fear the Arab Spring is really a Muslim Brotherhood nightmare.” Looks like he was spot on in his analysis. However, one man’s “radical Islamic nightmare” is another one’s (The One’s) congratulatory call. That is correct Barack Obama called Mohamed Morsi to congratulate the Muslim Brotherhood candidate on his victory and looked forward to working with him in the future.
From Facebook, Allen West responds to the Muslim Brotherhood victory in the Egyptian Presidential election.
A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama Administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt. We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident. The Muslim Brotherhood claimed they would not run a presidential candidate. Clearly the Arab Spring is nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare. Now we need to unequivocally reiterate our support to the Coptic Christians and Israel. What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama Administration. I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities
President Barack Hussein Obama Congratulates Victorious Muslim Brotherhood Candidate Mohamed Moris For Winning Egypt’s Presidential Election
OBAMA HOPE AND CHANGE … MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD EDITION.
President Barack Hussein Obama called the victorious Mohamed Moris, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, to offer his congratulations on becoming Egypt’s new President. Nuff said.
The White House is cautiously praising the outcome of Egypt’s first competitive presidential election, won by Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist party.
“The United States congratulates Dr. Mohamed Morsi on his victory in Egypt’s Presidential election, and we congratulate the Egyptian people for this milestone in their transition to democracy,” said White House press secretary Jay Carney in a statement.
“We look forward to working together with President-elect Morsi and the government he forms, on the basis of mutual respect, to advance the many shared interests between Egypt and the United States,” he said.
Obama also called General Ahmed Shafiq, who was defeated by Morsi, and urged him to play a role in Egypt’s transition by supporting the democratic process. The Muslim Brotherhood and the “democrat” process. Priceless.
Fast & Furious Stonewalling, Obamacare looking Unconstitutional, Failing Economy & Middle East on the Brink … Barack Obama Golfs for 101st time of Presidency
101 and counting …
President Barack Hussein Obama celebrated the Muslin Brotherhood’s Presidential victory in Egypt today with yet another round of golf. This will make Obama’s 101st round of golf since he took office. Millions of Americans are unemployed, the parents of Brian Terry are looking for answer as to their son’s death in connect with ‘Fast & Furious’ and wonder why Obama evoked executive privilege, a majority of American hope that the SCOTUS declares Obamacare Unconstitutional and the Middle East was turned on its ear today with the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood candidate in Egypt. All this, but it did not deter Obama from playing golf.
President Obama waited for the temperature to cool just a bit before heading to the golf course on Sunday.
Obama is golfing at the Fort Belvoir course, according to a White House pool report. The president is golfing with White House chef Sam Kass, staffer Mike Brush and White House trip director Marvin Nicholson, a frequent golf partner of Obama’s.
The temperature at the course is a steamy 89 degrees but a slight breeze makes it feel a little cooler, according to the Weather Channel. Washington is in the midst of a heat wave, with temperatures hitting 100 degrees on Thursday.
This will be the president’s 101st round of golf since entering office according to a count kept by CBS News’s Mark Knoller. He was last on the course on Father’s Day.
Funny, I waited for the temperature to cool off a bit, like millions of Americans to cut the grass. Who is out of touch with the American people?
