On the day of 9/11/2012, if we ask ourselves this question…are we safer than we were 11 years ago, what would your answer be?
Borders are still un-secured
The back door is wide open.
While President Obama pokes fun at Arizona’s tough law on immigration —“we all know what happens in Arizona when you don’t have an ID. … Adios amigos…”—terrorists have been able to come through the border easily.
While TSA may be touching people’s junk to ensure our flights are safer, the next tragic terrorist attack may not happen in the air.
President Obama has been too busy pleasing his radical leftists to secure the borders.
US Embassy in Cairo/US Diplomatic Convoy in Libya were under attacks
An amateur film triggered anger in Greece and Libya–that’s what they used as excuse anyway.
In the morning of 9/11/2012, eleven years after the “9/11” attack, Americans were attacked again.
US Embassy in Cairo was attacked. US flag was brought down, torn off and replaced by al-Qaeda flag.
A few hours later, US diplomatic mission in Libya was attacked. US ambassador J Christopher Stevens and three members of his staffs were killed—first time since 1979, a US ambassador died in a violent assault.
Even after these attacks, US Embassy in Cairo stood by its released statement earlier:
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. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
(The tweet from the embassy: This morning’s condemnation (issued before protest began) still stands. As does our condemnation of unjustified breach of the Embassy)
The question is…who would condemn the carefully planned attacks on Americans abroad? Who would condemn those who killed US ambassador and his staffs?
Not until hours after the news of these attacks that Obama’s administration decided to distance itself from the US Embassy’s statement.
And all Obama could do was a promise to work with Libya to bring justice to those killers—first, they will have to find them. And he can continue to apologize for a stupid act of a person who happens to live in this free country of ours.
We will not!
Peace through strength and one cannot lead from behind
“This administration’s policies project weakness abroad,” said Paul Ryan at a rally today.
And indeed Obama has decided to lead from behind. He is afraid to being viewed as “war” starter by his radical leftist supporters.
These attacks were planned to take place on 9/11/2012. The movie was just an excuse. And these are not “senseless of violence”. These attacks were the war that those in Libya and Cairo waged against the Americans.
And of course life went on for Mr. Obama as he continued his campaign in Las Vegas, Nevada. He sure set his priorities straight.
