In Cairo, as our embassy was being attacked, our flag removed and burned and the al Qaeda flag raised, this is the statement which was issued through the embassy:
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,” it said. “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
8 hours later, the terrorist attack took place in Libya and 4 Americans were killed.
It was shortly after that, that Mitt Romney released the statement which immediately drew scorn from Obama, his administration and the liberal media. Here is that statement:
“It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”
About 2 hours AFTER Mitt Romney’s comments…The WHITE HOUSE released THEIR statement that, “the embassy statement did not reflect the government’s views.”
And what ELSE did they say about Romney regarding his comment???
“Romney shoots first and aims later.”
Oh Really. ROMNEY shoots first and aims later. ROMNEY…
That initial statement, the one which came from the embassy in Cairo? Embassies don’t issue statements that aren’t cleared by the Department of State and, if they DO, it because there is a LOUSY and INEPT chain of command from the top of the Department of State to the embassies.
So…Either that statement DID come from the administration OR…Hillary Clinton is so completely INEPT that she has no say in what oozes out of the embassy as a statement.
It seems more likely that the Obama administration shot first and aimed later.
Romney’s aim was true and his comment…right on target.
On September 12th, the day after the attack, Hillary Clinton stated: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our Embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear – there is no justification for this, none. Violence like this is no way to honor religion or faith. And as long as there are those who would take innocent life in the name of God, the world will never know a true and lasting peace.”
Then, a day later, on September 13th, the tune began to change as once again, Hillary Clinton released ANOTHER statement:
“To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and provoke rage. But as we said yesterday, there is no justification — none at all — for responding to this video with violence.”
The chain of command determining the tone and tenner of a statement, at this level, is only ONE LINK in length.
Hillary Clinton’s boss is Obama and nobody stands between the two.
The You Tube video…On September 13th…becomes the Obama administration focal point.
What transpired over the next week was astounding.
Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary: “This is a fairly volatile situation, and it is in response not to U.S. policy, not to, obviously, the administration, not to the American people. It is in response to a video – a film – that we have judged to be reprehensive 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 and – to Muslims.”
Carney reiterated that statement over and over again.
Susan Rice, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations: “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. We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to – or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo.”
Rice reiterated that statement on 5 Sunday shows in 1 day.
The “video is to blame,” mantra was picked up by the lapdog Obama media and repeated over and over by liberals.
This is exactly what Obama, his administration and his media pocket dwellers referred to as…”SHOOTING FIRST!!”
Then came the word, first through intrepid reporting from Fox News…Then from Jay Carney and shortly after…Others…Including Hillary Clinton that the Libya attack was indeed a terrorist attack.
THAT is exactly what Obama, his administration and his rectally inserted media called…”AIMING LATER!!!!”
On September 12th, regarding the Libya attack, Hillary Clinton said: “There is no higher priority than protecting our men and women wherever they serve.”
Now, again due to intrepid reporting, we know that Ambassador Stevens had virtually NO protection in Benghazi.
Al Qaeda shot first and our State Department personnel in Libya were…STATIONARY TARGETS!!!
Just 2 days ago, in Afghanistan, another “Insider attack” took place and claimed the lives of 2 more Americans. In Afghanistan, this administration is literally training members of the Taliban for “security” and in doing so…OUR personnel…those whom Hillary claims we have no higher priority than to protect…WERE NOT ALLOWED TO CARRY WEAPONS WITH WHICH TO PROTECT THEMSELVES!!!
And who IS the Taliban according to Joe Biden? “NOT ‘PER SEY THE ENEMY!!!”
SO FAR…53 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED BY THOSE IN AFGHANISTAN WHO ARE NOT PER SEY THE ENEMY BECAUSE…THEY SHOT FIRST AND OUR PEOPLE DIDN’T EVEN HAVE WEAPONS TO AIM IN THEIR OWN PROTECTION!!!
So far…FOX NEWS knows far, FAR more about what happened and why it happened and WHO was involved…EVEN NAMING THE GITMO RELEASED AL QAEDA TERRORIST WHO LED THE ATTACK… than does this absurd ass covering administration and CNN has recovered the ONLY evidence from the scene of the attack while this cranial/rectal administration has those sent TO recover evidence COOLING THEIR HEELS HUNDREDS OF MILES AWAY!!!
While Obama, Hillary and the rest of this abject failure of an administration continue to change their story with lie after lie after lie to cover their previous lies…The truth IS coming out but…NOT FROM THEM!!!
What Obama, his administration and his media are clearly doing…Is shooting off lie after lie after lie and reaiming their cover stories only AFTER each individual aspect of the TRUE story is revealed.
Obama is at the bottom of a deep hole created by his own pathological need to lie and he continues to dig, and dig, and dig.
