Is is just a coincidence that mobs in Egypt chanting "Obama, Obama, we are Osama" just happened to turn up outside our Embassy and rip down the U.S. flag on September 11th? Is it a coincidence that Al Queda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri's brother, who the new radical Egyptian government released from jail, was on the scene?
Was it a coincidence that attacks in Libya also occurred simultaneously? In the Libya attack four American diplomatic personnel, including the U.S. Ambassador were killed. Photos of the Ambassador being carried through the streets while he was dying have gone around the world. This is the first Ambassador to be killed in the line of duty since 1979. Anyone else know what happened in 1979 and who the President was?

Obama, called out by name by the protesters, has to bear responsibility for these attacks as a consequence of his failed policies. If Hosni Mubarak was still President of Egypt the attack on our embassy would never have happened. Yet Obama pushed Mubarak out the door. And responsibility for the killings of our personnel in Libya can be directly laid to Obama's incompetence in not providing adequate protection.
This is one tragedy that not even Obama can blame on Bush!
Mitt Romney Responds:
Mitt Romney issued a statement. Here's an excerpt:
America will not tolerate attacks against our citizens and against our embassies. We will defend also our constitutional rights of speech and assembly and religion. We have confidence in our cause in America. We respect our Constitution. We stand for the principles our Constitution protects. We encourage other nations to understand and respect the principles of our Constitution because we recognize that these principles are the ultimate source of freedom for individuals around the world.On a related note, Obama spends most of his time either campaigning, fundraising or golfing. Recent reports indicate he skipped more than half of his daily intelligence briefings which might have helped him to focus attention on these issues.
I also believe the Administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in Egypt instead of condemning their actions. It's never too early for the United States Government to condemn attacks on Americans, and to defend our values. The White House distanced itself last night from the statement, saying it wasn't ‘cleared by Washington.’ That reflects the mixed signals they’re sending to the world.
The attacks in Libya and Egypt underscore that the world remains a dangerous place and that American leadership is still sorely needed. In the face of this violence, America cannot shrink from the responsibility to lead. American leadership is necessary to ensure that events in the region don’t spin out of control. We cannot hesitate to use our influence in the region to support those who share our values and our interests. Over the last several years, we have stood witness to an Arab Spring that presents an opportunity for a more peaceful and prosperous region, but also poses the potential for peril, if the forces of extremism and violence are allowed to control the course of events.
We must strive to ensure that the Arab Spring does not become an Arab Winter.
With Obama, we are suffering the first bitter taste of a cup of woe. Events may force us to drink more from this cup as Obama's amateurish, indifferent and incompetent foreign policy are exposed!
UPDATE: Obama off to campaign in Las Vegas in wake of foreign policy nightmare!
UPDATE: Egypt's President demands punishment of offending U.S. film maker. Fails to say ONE WORD of apology for riot at U.S. embassy. Muslim Brotherhood demand U.S. apologize!
If Obama were ready to stand up for American values he would CANCEL THE STATE VISIT of President Morsi planned for later this month!
