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.
Al Qaeda Terrorist Cleric Anwar al-Awlaki Dead … Confirmed, the ‘FACEBOOK FRIEND FROM HELL’ Killed in Yemen
Al Qaeda terrorist cleric Anwar al-Awlaki won’t be down for breakfast. According to confirmed Yemen and US officials, the American born cleric al-Awlaki has been killed in Yemen. Anwar al-Awlaki has been linked to many terrorist attacks on the United States, including the Fort Hood Massacre, the attempted Christmas Day underwear bombing and the Times Square bomb plot. Al-Awlaki was killed about 5 miles from the Yemeni town of Khashef, east of the capital city of Sanaa.
The American-born radical cleric al-Qaeda Anwar al-Awlaki, a major jihadist figure who U.S. officials say inspired several terror plots against the U.S., was killed overnight in Yemen, U.S. and Yemeni officials told ABC News.
A senior U.S. official told ABC News the U.S. had been tracking al-Awlaki for some time and had just been waiting for the perfect moment to strike. A Yemeni official said al-Awlaki was killed along with an unknown number of al Qaeda confederates, possibly in a drone strike.
As we like to say … “Good riddance to bad rubbish”. The folks at Wizbang second the motion. As reported at the Jawa Report, it was first reported that Yemeni forces were responsible for the killing of the American born traitor terrorist al-Awlaki; however, it is looking more like a US drone attack.
Born in Las Cruces, New Mexico, al-Awlaki lived in the United State until the age of seven when his family returned to Yemen. Al-Awlaki returned to the United States in 1991 for college and remained until 2002.
It was during that time that as an imam in California and Virginia, al-Awlaki preached to and interacted with three of the September 11 hijackers, according to the 9/11 Commission Report. He publicly condemned the attack afterward.
Anwar al-Awlaki, American-born, a gifted Muslim preacher and savvy Internet operator, became a powerful al-Qaida tool for recruiting in the West, its English-speaking voice spreading a terrorist credo via a blog, social media posts and email exchanges.
UPDATE II: Jenifer Griffin from FOX News that it was a US missile that took him out; however, it is not confirmed what platform the missile came from, i.e. drone, aircraft, etc.
UPDATE III: WHAT??? CBS calls al-Qaida … al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen. Does CBS News think that al-Qaida is like McDonald’s or Burger King … a franchise, ARE YOU SERIOUS!!! NEWSFLASH TO CBS … AL QAEDA IS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION!!!
Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born radical Islamic preacher who rose to the highest level of al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen, has been killed.
