The events of September 11th 2001 will forever be burned into the minds and hearts of all of us who witnessed it. The events of September 11th 2012 will be forgotten just as quickly as Obama’s complicit media can sweep it under the rug.
When I first heard about the attacks at our U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya, and particularly the death of our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, I was appalled. Like everyone else, I heard that some moron made a film depicting Muhammad as a dunce and a fraud and that this film had offended the sensibilities of the people in the Middle East. But something did not sit well with me. Everyone seemed to be ignoring the fact that this came on the anniversary of September 11th. IF the trailer had been released that day and had been showing in the Cairo movie theaters, then I was prepared to accept this as a “spontaneous protest”, but how does a film trailer, posted on youtube with no search tags manage to get the attention of Muslims from Egypt to Libya? And why, when it was uploaded two months ago, is it just now the cause of such outrage?
I then read an article in the Huffington Post that pointed out that when the Embassy in Libya was being sacked, the “protesters” were shouting “Take a picture Obama, we are all Osama”. This suggests much more than the standard outrage we’ve come to expect when Muhammad has been insulted. There was clear intent here, and I believe the message was for President Obama.
You see, the killing of Osama Bin Laden was mentioned no less than 21 times at the Democratic National Convention. Prior to that, President Obama and his surrogates have taken every opportunity to remind the public that it was Obama who had the courage to make the call to take him out. The reminder of Obama’s heroic feat is loudest when his resolve in facing our enemies is called into question, or when he is called “soft” on terrorism.
Is it such a stretch then to conclude that what was actually being “protested” here is President Obama’s insistence to gloat about killing Osama Bin Laden? Didn’t the GOP and military personnel warn of this very thing? “Spiking the football” is exactly what President Obama and the Democratic Party leaders have been doing and they have ignited a firestorm because of it.
What is more realistic? An obscure, horrible film uploaded to youtube two months ago triggered a cascade of spontaneous outrage which has directly lead to the death of Americans,
OR the radical arms of Islam who now control countries like Egypt and Libya heard the remarks of the President of the United States and his surrogates gleefully taking credit for the killing of their favorite martyr.
It was called the “Arab Spring”. We were witnessing history in the making and a glorious rise of democracy. The media and the Presidency scoffed and scorned at those who insisted that what was taking root certainly wasn’t glorious and certainly wasn’t democracy.
President Obama has created this situation, both in who is in control in these nations, and why they’re upset. Once again he is hoping to shift the blame and refuses to take any responsibility for what is happening. Unfortunately for all of us, he has a wholly complicit media, willing to get their hands dirty. God bless the family of Chris Stevens and I hope that they will get the honesty they deserve.
