There are an awful lot of angry Americans this morning.
Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed Tuesday night when he and a group of embassy employees went to the consulate to try to evacuate staff. The protesters, angry over a film that ridiculed Islam's Prophet Muhammad, were firing gunshots and rocket-propelled grenades.This followed another attack on our embassy in Cairo, Egypt where our flag was torn down, burned, and replaced with a muslim flag.
Here's the pathetic response to the Egypt attack:
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."Hurt the religious feelings of muslims?" Christians are being dragged from their homes and churches, beaten and killed across the Middle East in record numbers. Where is the response to that?
Obama has now completed The Circle of Jimmy Carter. His failure to promote freedom across the region has resulted in the death of Americans. I expect more riots today.
Weakness invites aggression.
