Why Is This Not an Act of War?

The U.S. Ambassador to Libya was murdered in the “turmoil” in Benghazi yesterday, along with another Consulate staffer and two Marines. The New York Times didn’t even bother to report this on its front page this morning, while the White House issued a statement from the President which read in part:

“I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens…”

If the Libyans aren’t careful, Obama might get outraged enough to send them a sternly-worded letter. I’m sure Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Infomation Officer Sean Smith, and the two heroic Marines who were slain will take comfort in that, as will their families.

Our Consulate attacked, our Ambassador murdered. Our embassy in Egypt attacked. I cannot fathom why these deeds are not considered acts of war against us. At the very least, President Strongly Condemn ought to immediately cut off all aid to both countries.

The real outrage is that apparently the Obama administration had information on the possiblity of attacks as early as June of this year, and did… nothing. No beefed up security, no strong statements warning against attacks. Nothing. The president was too busy desperately trying to keep his job to actually do his job.

If only Obama had some passion, some fire, some sympathy for those murdered yesterday. He might sound something like this:

Nah. That would interrupt his campaign trip to Las Vegas.

      Good Lord, there were so many unforced errors at the DNC, including the whole God/Jerusalem in or out of the party platform, the really disconcerting emphasis on abortion, Bill Clinton’s speech, and yes, the Russian Fleet showing as the backdrop as the party honored our veterans, to name just a few.

      There are no adults in charge in the Democrat Party any more.

        I’m wondering why we are sending so many dollars to these countries who obviously hate us and attack us. We are still sending millions (at least) to them!!

  3. […] you recall, the very next day after the Ambassador was murdered, President Obama jetted off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser. And these days, our leaders are spinning like crazy by insisting, in the face of […]
