Obama can't ignore terror attack

Success - Article sent! close

It is amazing that the media has so little coverage on the Benghazi, Libya, brutal murders of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans. These murders occurred by terrorists with a preplanned attack on American soil, the embassy and consulates are considered American soil. Ambassador Stevens wrote in his log that he feared for his life and yet, according to reports, had little protection.

The Obama administration has flip-flopped, stating it was due to an anti-Muslim film, then it was terrorists, then it was the film, etc. The Libyan president stated it was a well executed, preplanned terror attack that had nothing to do with the film. The film was used as a smoke screen for terrorists to commit the first murder of a U.S. ambassador since 1979. Thousands of Middle Eastern Muslims chanted, "Obama there are millions of Osamas." And, yet, we have heard very little in the media or from the White House.

Where is the transparency that was promised? Why was our guard down on Sept. 11 when we knew something was being planned? Obama is trying to ignore the issue and that a terror attack happened on his watch because he believed that he had slowed the rise of the oceans and healed the Earth.

There is more to being president than a community organizer with a glib tongue.
