The Obama Administration Apologizes to Islamists and Attacks the Constitution



ISLAMISTS FIRE ROCKET-PROPELLED GRENADES at US Consulate in Libya – Building Torched to the Ground

An American staff member of the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has died following fierce clashes at the compound, Libyan security sources said.

An armed mob attacked and set fire to the building in what they say was a protest against an amateur film deemed offensive to Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, after similar protests in Egypt’s capital.

“One American staff member has died and a number have been injured in the clashes,” Abdel-Monem Al-Hurr, spokesman for Libya’s Supreme Security Committee, said on Wednesday, adding that rocket-propelled grenades were fired at the building from a nearby farm.

“There are fierce clashes between the Libyan army and an armed militia outside the US consulate,” he said. He also said roads had been closed off and security forces were surrounding the building.


The Obama State Department apologized to the Islamists today after they stormed the US Embassy in Cairo.

Here’s the press release:

U.S. Embassy Condemns Religious Incitement
September 11, 2012

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.


This attack comes on the same day that Egyptian Muslims stormed the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and desecrated the United States Flag – taking it down, tearing it to pieces, and burning part of it. So far, not a word from President Obama on either attack, as far as I have been able to find. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo not only has not condemned the attack on the Embassy compound and the desecration of the U.S. Flag – they apologized for those who have “hurt the feelings” of Muslims! All part of Obama’s outreach to the Muslim world. Never mind that our Embassy is attacked and our Flag is desecrated.


UPDATE:LATER IN THE DAY........ Obama administration walks back embassy apology, blames embassy

Faced with increasing criticism over an apology issued by the U.S. Embassy in Egypt for the alleged "abuse" of free speech by Americans critical of Islam--even as Islamist radicals raided the building on the 11th anniversary of 9/11--the Obama administration has disavowed any such apology this evening, according to Politico:

"The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government," a senior administration official told POLITICO.

That wasn't a staff member killed, that was the American Ambassador.

Bob, of course, but when I did this post it was what they were saying.
Plus Marines were killed as well.

My post is about the fact that Obama and his administration made an apology to the terrorists instead of standing up for the lives that were taken and the attack .

Please understand when i do a post it is with the information I have at the time. Thank you so much.
