Obama, the U.S. President that the liberal media characterizes as ‘compassionate’ and ‘eloquent’: “Here’s what I’ll say. If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.” — Obama
UPDATE: The mother of an American diplomat killed during a terrorist raid on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi has hit out at Barack Obama for describing the attack as ‘not optimal’, saying: ‘My son is not very optimal – he is also very dead.’ Speaking exclusively to MailOnline today, Pat Smith, whose son Sean died in the raid, said: ‘It was a disrespectful thing to say and I don’t think it’s right. How can you say somebody being killed is not very optimal? I don’t think the President has the right idea of the English language.’
Yet, White House press secretary Jay Carney says “… 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.”
And, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice wants us to believe, “Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo… In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.”
And, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responds to the terrorist attack with, “Let me state very clearly — and I hope it is obvious — that the United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.”
And, the U.S. Embassy in Cairo apparently believes that the exercise of the 1st Amendment right to free speech– IF it offends Muslims– constitutes an “abuse” of “the universal right of free speech.” Wow, that’s one step away from justifying the criminalization of speech that Muslims claim is offensive! What is this, “1984”?
It is CLEAR that the Obama Administration is guilty of a cover-up.
And about a month after the attack, it’s been revealed that “the U.S. intelligence community in Libya informed the administration in Washington, D.C., within 24 hours of the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that the attack had been a terrorist strike whose perpetrators included militia associated with al Qaeda.”
4 Americans killed in terrorist attack and the U.S. Consulate in Libya is destroyed on 9/11 anniversary
The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, along with 3 other Americans including 2 Navy SEALs, are brutally tortured and murdered by terrorists who destroy the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens had expressed concern about security, but was ignored by the Obama Administration.
It turns out that the U.S. State Department had credible information that an attack was going to happen 48 hours prior, but didn’t do anything about it and failed to warn the diplomats.
It also turns out that “sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi” in the aftermath of the attack– including a list of names of Libyans working with Americans, “putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups” and undermining America’s credibility.
Note to U.S. diplomats around the world: Obama doesn’t care about you.
Knowing full well that the creator of an anti-Islam youtube clip would face multiple death threats, federal authorities publicly identify the filmmaker.
