Remember the 3AM call during the 2008 campaign? The phone rang yesterday on the anniversary of 9/11 when angry mobs stormed U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya KILLING! our ambassador and desecrating our flag. Americans do not care what the ostensible excuse was for the mob outrage, and it was mob outrage. Citizens in civilized societies learn in elementary school that you cannot hit the teacher because she was not ‘nice’ to you. If breaching an embassy is not an act of war, killing an ambassador certainly is! Quit ‘leading from behind’ Mr. President, at the moment you are the President, and send the message that no matter what your alleged grievance, killing a U.S. ambassador is an act of war that will not stand without SEVERE punishment!
It is ironic that our ambassador was killed in Libya, a country Barack Obama helped liberate, and on the same day that Barack Obama refused to meet with the Prime Minister of the only true democracy in the Middle East, Israel. Those are discussions for another day. In the meantime, quit campaigning and issuing mealy mouthed condemnations, condolence proclamations and apologies and get these bastards!
