Quotes of the day

posted at 9:56 pm on September 14, 2012 by Allahpundit

The US consulate in Benghazi, where the US ambassador to Libya died in an attack on Tuesday, was not given the standard security contract offered to many American diplomatic missions in the Middle East, private military contractors have told the BBC…

Meanwhile the attackers appeared to know exactly where staff were being taken to and fired on a second building supposed to be a safe haven, prompting suspicions they had a prior informant inside the mission…

Given the unstable security situation in Benghazi and eastern Libya that has developed this year, it is surprising that security precautions for such a sensitive diplomatic mission were not more robust.

***

The State Department told reporters Friday afternoon that it won’t answer any more questions about the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans until the investigation into the incident is complete…

All aspects of the attack, including what led up to it, its causes, the identity of the perpetrators, and the circumstances surrounding the death of Amb. Chris Stevens and the other three Americans, are off limits for reporters.

The new policy leaves many questions about the Benghazi attack unanswered, potentially for a long time, such as the identity of the attackers, whether they were connected to protests earlier in the day in Cairo, what were the exact circumstances and cause of Stevens’s death, whether the administration had indications of the threat beforehand, and whether the consulate’s security was adequate or not.

***

US President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy is in ruins. Like no president before him, he tried to win over the Arab world. After some initial hesitation, he came out clearly on the side of the democratic revolutions. … In this context, he must accept the fact that he has snubbed old close allies such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Egyptian military. And now parts of the freed societies are turning against the country which helped bring them into being. Anti-Americanism in the Arab world has even increased to levels greater than in the Bush era. It’s a bitter outcome for Obama.”

Obama was naive to believe that one only needed to adopt a new tone and show more respect in order to dispel deep-seated reservations about the free world. In practice, the policies of the Obama administration in the region were not as naive as they may have seemed at times, and the Americans have always been much more involved in the Middle East than the passive Europeans. But Washington has provided the image of a distracted superpower in the process of decline to the societies there. This image of weakness is being exploited by Salafists and al-Qaida, who are active in North Africa from Somalia to Mali.

One thing is clear: If jihadists believe they can attack American installations and kill an ambassador on the anniversary of Sept. 11, then America’s deterrent power has declined considerably. For a superpower, it is not enough just to want to be loved. You have to scare the bad guys to keep them in check.

If one well-known Pakistani politician gets his way, international law will forbid “anti-Islam” material from the Internet.

Friday afternoon, Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik wrote in a series of tweets that he has spoken with and written to the Secretary General of Interpol about enacting an international law to stop all anti-Islam propaganda online.

I have defended the Obama administration against the complaints from the right that they have run an “apology tour” in the Middle East because I believe the US should admit when we make mistakes, such as the accidental burning of Korans. But what we shouldn’t do is affirm the wrongheaded view that people should be protected from the free speech of others.

Worse, our leaders shouldn’t let our enemies know that when they kill our people and attack our embassies that the US Government will act like a battered wife making excuses for her psychotic husband. Wake up: we weren’t attacked because of a movie made by an American. We were attacked because there are crazy religious fanatics who hate the United States. We didn’t ask for it…

Apparently our foreign policy is now being run by Dr. Phil. Someone needs to explain to the White House that our Constitution protects freedom of religion from government interference, not the protection from people who say mean, critical or offensive things about one’s religion…

It’s time for the Obama administration to stop blaming the victim.

***

Our response to anti-authoritarian movements has been confused. It varies from place to place. When the Iranians marched to protest a fraudulent election in 2009, Obama did nothing. When the Egyptians marched against Hosni Mubarak, an American ally, in 2011, the White House hemmed and hawed and finally threw its weight behind people power. Mubarak fell. What we neglected to notice was that the revolution in Egypt had not actually occurred. Other generals simply took over from Mubarak and tried to slow down the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood…

Egyptian politics have assumed a new and terrifying dynamic, with the Brotherhood attempting to triangulate between the Salafists who own the street and the Americans who provide economic and military assistance and debt relief. The casualties of this triangulation may include the peace treaty with Israel and the potential of Egyptian democracy. If the president has a plan to deal with this mess, we have yet to hear it…

This is the broken and anxiety-ridden world Barack Obama has made. Our adversaries are stronger. America and her allies are weaker. And yet, after spending practically a decade blaming every last thing, including the bad weather, on President Bush, the media seem determinedly uninterested in ascribing even the slightest amount of responsibility to President Obama.

Who’s ready for four more years?

***

TAPPER: Wouldn’t it seem logical that the anniversary of 9/11 would be a time that you would want to have extra security around diplomats and military posts?

CARNEY: Well, as you know, there — we are very vigilant around anniversaries like 9/11. The president is always briefed and brought up to speed on all the precautions being taken. But let’s be -

TAPPER: Obviously not vigilant enough.

***

“If Mitt Romney had kept his mouth shut, if he had not acted like a rank amateur, if he had not embarrassed himself–and by the way internally the campaign understands they screwed up, he’s moved on, they know that. So no conservative can say “oh, the mainstream media, blah, blah.” They know how badly they screwed up, and they were having the fight internally before he even went out and did it. But Romney got in the way of the media looking at the president, going, wha-, wha-, what happened here? How did this happen? Now, those questions are going to be asked in the coming weeks. But they weren’t asked in the first 24 hours because Romney was holding this horrific, irresponsible, press conference.”

And those that I love as well. I don’t doubt we win, but damned what a hill to climb. It seems,, we do this every now and again. Make a mess of things and millions die about every 50 years, and we are overdue. I don’t think we can avoid it. This round we fight islamofascist and socialist. And we fight them from within as well. This Government needs to be purged of the enemy we are going to face. The reason is obvious.

But, as with Eric Holder and the Fast and Furious, there will be obfuscation and lies. Unfortunately for Preezy, he’s going to have to play nice and not roll Hill under the bus until the election is over. He needs Bubba’s support. Isn’t it sickening?

Plus the article from the Independent yesterday that there was warning to the State Department 48 h prior to the Libya consulate attack. which the Barry White House tried to parse by saying that there was no “actionable” information.

Some house committee needs to have hearings on Barry/Hillary’s failures very soon.

bayview on September 14, 2012 at 10:08 PM

They can parse all they want. FACT: a rube like me knows that our embassies/consulates in countries with unstable governments — such as Libya — needed beefed up security on 9/11 without any kind of information — actionable, credible or totally cracked out.

In fact, I am shocked & disgusted to learn that the “leaders” we have not only didn’t know that, but left those poor people basically with less security than I have (i.e., I’ve got a deadbolt, ADP security AND real bullets).

They ended up shooting themselves in the foot on that too, because it was only hours later revealed that the ‘filmmaker’ was also a government informant working for the FBI. The muslims will spin that into ‘an agent of the US government’. Another bangup job by the moron Eric Holder!

In response, the US government has tried to restrict freedom of speech and the American media has banded together to turn its wrath on Mitt Romney.

The only way out for the administration is to hide the facts as long as they can, even after the election (should Obama win).

Mitt, secure this nation and restore her great stature as the leader of the world. Seek out the truth behind this tragedy. At this point, we have no faith in our leadership – not even to protect us from our enemies. If this is how the Obama administration treats their employees, the rest of us common folk are toast under their watch.

You shut down a company to find an employee’s missing daughter. Shut down this dysfunctional administration for good so we can again believe that someone will defend us from our enemies.

Enough people will see it where it matters in these elections.

I honestly pray you are right.

SWalker on September 14, 2012 at 11:17 PM

MSM is working very hard to demoralize anti-Barry voters, first with the fictitious Barry Convention bounce, and now trying to push the NBC/Marist polls in the battleground states.

Note the language of Jonathan Karl of ABC News, who said tonight” There were polls out from 3 battleground states, Fl, VA and OH (yes, the one with a +10 Dem overweight in OH), and in all 3 states, Romney was tanking.” Neutral opinion, no?

Nevermind Rasmussen noted Barry only by +1, and Gravis had Romney +5 in VA. Rasmussen had Barry +2, and AIF/McLaughlin had Romney +3 in FL.

I said this the other night on a thread and it’s a disgusting thought but, this admin may have set up Stevens and the others and looked at this like they were just a sad casualty for a greater purpose.

It would not surprise me if this is the case.

Obama wants a meltdown.

For 4 years Obama has placed the dynamite, set the charges and with his re-election around the corner, it’s time to push the lever.

boom…

No…I’m from southern California, were about as easy going and forgiving of perverts as they come, and I utterly reject the idea of giving that human douche bag any pity at all.

SWalker on September 14, 2012 at 11:15 PM

Me neither, I just love referring to him as Richard Gere’s favorite gerbil. He really puts his back into it.

Friday morning I tried to check the QOTD thread, but there were CSS problems. This means that the whole site was displayed as “straight HTML”. (Also, no login available so that I could beg for help.)

No browser refreshes would work. I despaired. I emailed Ed (etc.) and when I got back from my walk, all was good.

Here’s a questionable connection. Enjoy?

A Foreign Policy That Works

I note that the American ambassador in Iraq has not been murdered and his corpse dragged through the streets. I also recall that, a few years ago, when Muslims around the globe erupted in rioting over some Dutch cartoons, one Muslim country remained utterly pacific: George W. Bush’s Iraq.

Now..go listen to our POTUS promise good relations with the people of Islam in his 2008 campaign.

IlikedAUH2O on September 14, 2012 at 11:20 PM

OT-I’m to upset to talk about this topic, so has anyone looked at the Lincoln movie thread? What is the deal,I feel like I’m in an alternate universe.

Most of the people here would have voted Palin.

There’s just a few that wouldn’t – Buy Pastries, Dork-Star and three or four others.

Hijack question of the day: Will the anger over these M.E. incidents and the MSM Obama fluffery (and concomitant Romney enmity) start to take a toll on this turd bag POTUS?

Inquiring minds.

It would look good in a tank top.

Lanceman on September 14, 2012 at 11:22 PM

I looked everywhere for my quote above. I found it in Ann Coulter’s most recent column.

BTW, POTUS specifically mentioned his sister as a Muslim and that would help us.

HAS ANYONE CALLED THAT WOMAN?
