American’s foreign policy has changed, again.

‘Pivot to Asia’ has changed to ‘Re-balance’ in response to the re-surgence of Russia and Al-Qaeda.

Obama appeased to Muslims but it has back fired. Al-Qaeda and other groups have come back stronger than ever. For  them, America is still their number one enemy all over the world.

America has ignored Russia for two decades but Putin came back to bite America and huminiated Obama on the world stage.

Clinton helped opened China’s door to capitalism and made China among the top economies in the world. Now, US has second thoughts about China’s uprising which threatened American leadership in the world. But the horse has come out of the barn door already. It’s too late to take it back now.

America is good at looking one or two quarters ahead just like American’s businesses.

For a year or two since 2012, the only thing you heard was ‘pivot to Asia.’ Now, Al Qaeda fire is burning on American back again. American’s foreign policy has to ‘re-balance.’ Russia came out of no-where with Putin waving a big stick. American’s foreign policy has to be re-adjusted again.

Disarray. Mess. Confusion. Chaos. Shambles.

Way over Obama’s head. Period.

Obama will take this opportunity to make a total retreat from Iraq and call it for the day. Iraqi government asks US for air strike support but will Obama agree for this? And who will pay for all the bombs? I bet it will be you and I. It sure won’t be from money from selling the Iraqi oil.

Obama once said that al Qaeda was severely wounded. I don’t think they agree though.

Two trillion American tax dollar for a half-baked democracy that is crumbling down like a house of cards. It will be the same for Afghanistan too. American’s pivot to Asia has to wait. America has a war that just won’t end. Then we have Putin to deal with too.

The down fall of America is out thrre for everyone to see. I wonder what does the king of Saudi Arabia has to say. Ditch the US dollar and sell Saudi oil in Euro?

Who gave Obama or America the right to unilaterally bomb Syria anyway?

Did American people authorized Obama to do so?

No.

Did US Congress give Obama the blessing to bomb the middle east country?

No.

Did UN authorize Obama to start bombing soon?

No.

What if Assad decides to bomb Israel with a few missiles with chemical warhead after American’s attack?

What if Putin decides to get involved so that the price of Brent stays at elevated levels?

What if Iran decides to help Syria with air defense?

What if Assad decides to “豁出去了” and bomb Suez Canal or Saudi Arabia’s oil installations?

What if al Qaede takes the opportunity to attack American facilities in Middle East?

What if Obama’s war against Syria starts an all out war in Middle East?

What if Assad gets killed in action and al Qaeda takes over as Syria’s new leader?

Obama, do you have answers to these questions?

I guess not.

One last question: how much money are you going to borrow from China to pay for your war against Assad?

The first country习近平 “Xi Jinping” visited after he was appointed the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party. 中国共产党中央委员会总书记,  was Russia. And judging from Putin’s facial expression, I believe he had a great time playing host to 习近平 too.

Slide1

http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/66570000/jpg/_66570746_66570661.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-21911842&h=261&w=464&sz=22&tbnid=tiLuu0O0q3ixVM:&tbnh=68&tbnw=120&zoom=1&usg=__iI5rTEKvy3u1TOy0jgLfMlggxaU=&docid=n3s35XMRh8NdTM&sa=X&ei=JKELUpH_BKOS2QWzj4DYCA&ved=0CDQQ9QEwAA&dur=6#imgdii=tiLuu0O0q3ixVM%3A%3BNYZD9tELNOOSmM%3BtiLuu0O0q3ixVM%3A

Well, why Russia? Why Putin? Why not America? Why not Obama?

Isn’t America wildly recognized as the most powerful country in the world? How come Obama wasn’t showing Xi Jinping around the White House at that time? Are Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin trying to send a not-too-subtle message to Obama and the United States?

And who prompted Xi’s visit to Russia to begin his international tour anyway?

Well, just for the fun of it, before I talk about the “因果” of America’s pivot to Asia, let’s take a look of Putin and Obama when they had a chance to work together recently. You’ll find out whether they were having fun time together.

Slide2

Well, enough of this fun stuff. Let’s talk about the topic on hand, i.e.: 言归正传。

There is no doubt that the ones who started the whole thing; or “始作俑者; shǐ zuò yǒng zhě,” were none other than Hillary and Obama.

Hillary and Obama were responsible for China’s pivot to Russia and Russia’s pivot to China. Hillary and Obama were the ones who made Xi and Putin friends at the expense of the United States. The 21 century version of the Cold War has officially started but this time America has two enemies: China and Russia.

Obama has a bigger problem though: he has made Vladimir Putin his enemy (Remember the picture?) and made half a friend in Xi Jinping.

Ever since the beginning of Arab Spring, Obama has in essence walked away from Middle East and has ceded the world leadership position to whoever came forward to fill the void. Obama instead focused on ruining more American people’s life with more liberal agendas.

Of course, that didn’t mean Hillary was sitting on her butt and enjoyed the perks afforded to her paid by us; the other 53% of American people.

In fact, she tried very hard to mask her ineffectiveness in foreign policies by flying in and out of JFK and IAD and pretending she was busy with diplomatic matters. One of the areas Hillary visited a lot was Asia.

For more than a decade, America ignored Asia because it had its hands tied with al Qaeda, Iraq wars and war in Afghanistan. Ever since Osama was killed by navy seals, not Obama because he was merely carrying out pre-existing orders passed down from Bush, Obama has been telling American people that al Qaeda has been defeated. He said that al Qaeda has been on the run and was on the brink of total collapse.

With Obama’s “mission accomplished against al Qaeda” narrative, American’s military machine needs another adversary and China’s rapid buildup of its military made it an obvious target. Of course, the fact that China is destined to overtake America as the largest economy in the world also made US policy makers, including Hillary, uneasy. The threat of U.S. dollar losing its reserve currency status made the matter that much more urgent.

With liberal think tanks’ urging and Obama’s approval, Hillary pivot America back to Asia. The dagger is aimed squarely at China.

Of course, China knew Hillary’s intention because when something quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it is a 如假包换的鸭子, real duck.

In other words, the seeds of the 21st Century version of cold war have been sowed.

This was the “因.”

Of course, seeds need constant attention and continuous cultivation to prosper. Hillary knew that. She flew in and out of Asia, visited many Asian countries and attended several meeting in Asia too. In the end she was able to recruit a few willing participants including Japan and a couple of 小角色 (small potato): Philippine and Vietnam. Her visit to India didn’t produce anything concrete for the US and nothing has come out of her visit to Myanmar either.

Of course, Japan has never ever considered China a friend. To Japan’s hard right, China has been a takeover target since Japan first started invading China’s coastal villages and shipping ports since the 1300’s. It culminated into Japan’s invasion of China in 1937 and its ultimate defeat and unconditional surrender in 1945. Hillary’s invitation to Japan was a god-send and Japan accepted it without any reservation whatsoever. Japan was glad that US decided to take on China because ever since Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan has been a loyal servant to the imperialist America.

Philippines and Vietnam were recruited because of their territorial disputes with China. They were two pawns or two 摇旗呐喊跑龙套的小角色 if you like.  They are inconsequential in the great scheme of things but may offer some minor headaches for China here and there. Let’s face it, at the end of the day, America will not send American soldiers to defender Philippine or Vietnam if China threatens military actions against these two nations. However, I will not be surprised if Philippine allows the US to build a port for one of American’s air carrier fleets if the price is right. Vietnam will stay more or less neutral because of its ties with Soviet Union in the past.

All this being said China and Russia are glad to see this development because China needs Russia and Russia needs China.

China needs Russia because of its vast amount of crude oil and natural gas. Russia’s military technology and weaponry are a good source for China’s technological development in years to come. There are a number of things that China will be glad to receive Russia’s assistance.

Russia needs China too. This is because Russia’s largest economic customer, Europe, is mired in several years of recession. China is a natural replacement for Russia’s European markets. In addition, China’s deep pocket can help Russia maintain its economic growth and China can be a good source of capital if Russia wants to develop its Siberia resources.

This is probably why Xi Jinping paid Putin a visit right after he was appointed the new leader of China. He wanted to tell Putin that China valued Russia’s friendship and China considers Russia the most important ally in the world. The message was loud and clear and it also looked like a slap on Obama’s face. But since Obama didn’t think he is the leader of the free world, the slap on his face didn’t matter at all.

With the stage of Cold War set, both sides continued their empty threats by conducting military exercises: US with Japan, US with Philippine, US with Vietnam verses China and Russia having several of their own too. For instance, China and Russia had their largest-ever joint naval exercises in the Sea of Japan and Russia held its largest military exercise ever about a month ago: 160,000 troops, 5,000 tanks, dozens of ships and 130 combat aircrafts. I believe that the show of force was aimed at Obama and the message was:”Step aside, Obama. Russia, under Putin, will take part and be recognized as an important player on the world stage.” Since then, Russia was on the opposite end to Obama on many international issues: Iran, Syria, G20, Japan, nuclear arms talk and finally Snowden.

This is one of the “果” from Hillary and Obama’s pivot to Asia: Obama gained an enemy in Putin.

Now, China, being the cool head and a smart guy in the room, quietly secured multi-decade contracts on crude oil and natural gas supplies from Russia via newly completed pipelines, worked with Iraq to developed its vast petroleum resources, continued working on China’s ambition of sending a team of astronauts to and back from the moon, set up a space station for military and scientific researches, built up its air force and navy include several air carriers and advanced fighter jets, tightened the noose around马英九and 民进党’s necks, and secured numerous natural resources in Canada, Africa, Central Asia, U.S. and Europe. On Snowden, China got what it wants from him and let Snowden go to Russia so that it won’t openly upset America that much.  

This is what has been called”韬光养晦,” or staying out of the lime light and constantly improving yourself: militarily, technologically, scientifically, and economically.

This is also the other “果” from Obama and Hillary’s pivot to Asia.

The new, 21 century version of the “新三国演义” has officially started. The first chapter has been written even though one of the three players, Europe, was missing in action.

Slide3

Before the second chapter can officially begin, America has to take care of this not too small problem that will stay with American people for decades if not centuries to come: al Qaeda.

Obama lied to American people on al Qaeda and on Benghazi. America had to close 21 of its embassies and told American people to stay away from certain parts of the world. This messy side show will continue because al Qaeda will not let it die; not when drones keep killing innocent Arabs and Muslims.

Europe Union will not be a major player for a long time because it has to take care of its mounting sovereign debt problem first. After that, the issues of economic and political union will keep them occupied for decades.

Several other things to pay attention to:

1) The US national debt clock. The arm race will bankrupt America first.

2) The status of U.S. dollar.

3) Oil price.

4) China’s gold reserve.

So stay tuned. The show just started. And it is getting much more interesting with Putin in the middle.

Questions but no answers:

Are they for real or are they for show?

Did the US government trying to say something to its citizens?

What did you get from all these commotions? 

Did the US government trying to send a message to al Qaeda?

More importantly, what did al Qaeda get from all these commotions?

Are our tax dollars being spent wisely?

We know some people get a few paid-days off. What else did you get?

 

 

Obama’s character on Display August 6, 2013

Don’t Shoot, We are Retreating

This is the message Obama keeps giving to al Qaeda time and time again.

When someone in NSA heard two top al Qaeda guys having a nice chat about two weeks ago, he got Obama’s attention. Obama ordered the closing of 21 embassies in Middle East and North Africa to justify NSA snooping on all Americans. He then ordered four drone attacks and suggested all Americans leaving Yemen. I guess he’s just about ready to play golf, have a party at WH or take a vacation at Hampton now.

Well, al Qaeda sure knows what bottom to push next time when they want to see the show again.

America’s response to terrorist threats reflects its president’s integrity and his personality.

Obama has through his actions and words relinquished America’s leadership position in the world. He repeatedly appeased to Muslims before and after him becoming the president. Obama even praised Yemen president for his effort to fight al Qaeda while ordered the closing of 21 American embassies. He has been more than happy to play second fiddle on the world stage. However, to Obama, nothing is more important when terrorist attack threatened his re-election.

Well, between a dead American ambassador plus three others and his re-election chance on 9/11/2012, he sure knew where his priority was. Didn’t he? When al Qaeda or its associates killed American ambassador to Lybia, Mr. Christopher Stevens, and three others, in Benghazi, Obama jumped into action immediately.

Even though Obama, Hillary and people in the intelligence community knew it was a terrorist attack from the beginning, Obama had a meeting and decided to hide the truth from American people. He did it because the inconvenient truth would damage his re-election which was about two months away. You see, Obama had previously declared victory against al Qaeda and told American people that al Qaeda had been totally defeated. The killing of an American ambassador in Lybia didn’t exactly fit his narrative, did it? After the meeting, Obama went on to Las Vegas with his vacation while absolutely no action was taken to revenge Ambassador Steven and three others’ deaths.

In the mean time, Obama ordered his underlings, including Rice, Hillary and others, blaming a YouTube video for the attack and the death of Ambassador Stevens. The lie went on for almost ten days before admitting the WH was wrong. It clearly demonstrated that all they cared about was Obama’s re-election. They wanted to drag this thing until after election. And of course, the liberal media was totally behind Obama on this.

This is Democracy American style at its worst! What option American people have? None. Nothing at this time!

Well, what did al Qaeda get from all this?

At first, al Qaeda was probably preparing for an all out assault from American marines or special ops units. But all they got was a public condemnation from the WH, a few drone attacks and an endless show of American officials on national TV trying to blame the video while denying that al Qaeda was behind the attack. I bet al Qaeda couldn’t believe their eyes and ears and probably couldn’t stop laughing at a character by the name of Barack Hussein Obama, a guy who claimed to be a brother to Muslims.

To al Qaeda, America appeared weak even though it took it squarely on the chin this time. America didn’t have the guts to project its military strength. And America continued to hide behind the drones while bickering at each other on TV.

To al Qaeda, America was running out of options. America looked like a 纸老虎, a paper tiger which has past its prime. Hence, the chatter between two top al Qaeda guys who are probably hiding in caves.

Well, what has happened so far in the open for everyone to see was actually Obama’s character on display. It was Obama’s spineless personality which will continue to invite more violence against American’s interests here and abroad.

Well, the flurry of embassy closing over the weekend will not be the last. We’ll find out what Obama will do next time when those two guys chat again.

Why some in the Muslim world, such as al Qaeda, hate America so much?

Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and thousands of al Qaeda associates have tried to attack American’s interests here and abroad for decades. Some have succeeded in spectacular ways such as 9-11 or attack on Benghazi. Some have blew themselves up in order to kill a few Americans, mostly soldiers, here and there. Of course, according to US government, many attempts have been avoided due to good intelligence on the part of America government.

But, why were these people willing to give up their lives? For what purpose?

I have to say that I do not understand their deep-rooted believes and I do not understand their religion at all. All I can say is that they answer to a higher calling that is beyond my comprehension.

But, why targeting America primarily?

Is it because America is paying for all the bad deeds it did to other people and other nations either militarily and culturally for last several decades?  Iranian’s occupation of American’s Tehran embassy in 1979 came to my mind. Iranians called it the “Conquest of the American Spy Den” if you care to know.

America is now trapped in this perpetual holy war and it has few options to get itself out of this mess. It has been 20 years since the 1992 bombing attack in Aden, Yemen and 1993 World Trade Center bombing in New York City.

How many more 20 years this holy war has to go on? The Crusades (十字军东征)last more than 200 years. I wonder how long this holy war will last.

Just look at what it has cost American people and America in wars, in dollars and in life style changes (e.g.; have you caught a flight lately?) , not to mention all the threats and mental anguish we all have to go through each time NSA detected something from chatters, phone conversations or emails. Remember the Green, Orange and Red lights of the past years?

Alas, what this nation has come to?

All the tax money we have spent on this and all the lives American soldiers gave in wars have not contributed to the future growth of this country. They merely kept the homeland of America from large scale attacks so that we can go on with our daily “New Normal lives.”

The American people have no choice but to accept this “New Normal.” Unfortunately, it seems to me that this “cat and mouse” game will continue for a long while.

America is in the open and plays defensive for the most part. The drones appear to be effective according to claims from the US government. Of course, we don’t have anything to not to believe our government. But thousands of innocent civilians in Muslim countries died during these attacks. These unilateral military actions didn’t improve America’s PR in Arab countries and the death of children and others only piled on the hatreds Muslim people already had against America.

al Qaeda and their associates, on the other hand, are in the dark. They play cat and mouse with American soldiers who died from IEDs and in the hands of Muslim soldiers who have been trained by American security forces. It isn’t a fair fight but that’s the way it is. America called al Qaeda’s actions terrorist attacks. The al Qaeda is at war against the United States where ever they perceived to have a tactic advantage.

美国是 “防不胜防,穷于应付.“ 到头来只有 “挨打”的份。

Now, let’s talk about our tax money hard at work.

Yes, the trillions of military spending, printed from the thin air but borrowed from institutions and foreign countries, grew American GDP in leaps and bounds. It also contributed to the development of advanced military gadgets for this kind of warfare. There is no denial on these. Well, technically, it also grew other countries’ GDPs from US spending in hundreds of military bases around the world.

But, seriously, I have always believed that these are bad GDPs. They grew the GDP but, thanks to Osama and al Qaeda, these GDPs didn’t improve America’s competitiveness and American standing in the world. On the contrary, these bad deeds done by the US made America even more hated by people in the Muslim world.

I submit to you that, had Osama bin Laden and his loyal followers choose not to attack America but to live peacefully with the American people, these money, trillions and trillions and counting, could be used for better purposes to grow American’s future. For instance, these money could be used to reduce American’s tax burdens, slow down the growth of American national debt, save future generations from crushing debt burden, improve K-12 education, invest in aging and crumbling infrastructures, develop life-saving medicines, spend on researches in advance technologies (batteries, anyone?,) or increase funding in next generation energy research.

Well, if Congress can’t think of anything better to do with the money, it can simply give each and every one of us some money instead.

Well, let’s go back to al Qaeda and the so-called terrorist attacks.

it is a “holy war” America didn’t initiate but it may be a “holy war” resulting from decades of America’s bullying in the world.

In case you don’t know already, here is a definition of bullying from Wikipedia:

“Bullying is the use of (military) force or (diplomatic) coercion to abuse or intimidate

others (countries.)”

Note: I added the words in parenthesis.

If you don’t believe me, check out yourselves and see how many countries America has invaded or interfered in other nations’ internal affairs in recent history. You might also want to find out how many civilian casualties or collateral damages America has inflicted upon other countries.

They are beyond believe!

I am not religious and I am not taking sides. But I think America can use some help from god!

Come back another time. Maybe? he State Department announced the closure of 21 facilities this Sunday because of credible threats against American embassies in the Middle East and North Africa.

Hmm…. Why do you tell your enemy that you are not home before their attack?

Are you telling the al Qaeda that they might want to come at some other time?

Or is this Obama‘s ploy to tell the American people that NSA has to listen to your phone calls and check your emails in order to get intels like this?

Obama may want to show the American people that their tax dollars are hard at work and not all is wasted on IRS scandals or buying guns for Mexican drug lords.

al Qaeda didn’t get White House’s memo August 2, 2013

Obama took his victory laps and declared on various occasions:

  • al Qaeda was nearly “defeated.” And after the death of Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants, al Qaeda has been decimated, scattered across the North Africa and the Middle East.
  • “Core of al Qaeda in Pakistan and Afghanistan is on a path to defeat.”
  • “al Qaeda was on the run.”
  • “al Qaeda is on its heels.”
  • al Qaeda’s “remaining operatives spend more time thinking about their own safety than plotting against us.
  • “al Qaeda did not direct the attacks in Benghazi or Boston.”
  • “al Qaeda have not carried out a successful attack on our homeland since 9/11”

Sounded pretty bad for al Qaeda; if you ask me.

On 9/11/2012

  • al Qaeda or its associates carried out a large scale attacks on Benghazi
  • al Qaeda or its associates killed US ambassador to Libya and three others

Obama administration on 8/2/2013:

  • Announced that al Qaeda may launch attacks in Middle East, North Africa and beyond in coming weeks. The threat appears much worse than it has in a long time.
  • Issued a public warning: “terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests.
  • Planed to close the following diplomatic facilities Sunday:

Egypt, Iraq, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Dhaka,                                     Bangladesh; Jordan; Oman; Saudi Arabia; Algiers,                                                 Algeria; United Arab Emirates; Yemen; Libya.

  • Offered reason for closing so many facilities: “we just don’t know which one.”
  • Warned that “terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests.”
  • Said that “It is possible we may have additional days of closings as well, depending on our analysis.”

Heck, didn’t al Qaeda get White House’s memo? According to the WH, al Qaeda was supposed to be decimated and on its heels.

I guess Obama’s “broad rethink” of the war on terrorism has to wait until al Qaeda decides to take a break.

A side note: It was said that U.S. ambassadors, not the State Department, usually determine when embassies will shut down. A senior U.S. official called today’s move a “real precedent-setting event.”

Questions:

  1. Will al Qaeda wait?
  2. Obama, isn’t al Qaeda decimated?

 

Obama should resign on Lying to Americans on Benghazi October 25, 2012

Obama knew what was going on at Benghazi but chose to blame it on a video and lie to the American people.

Here are the evidences:

7/9/2012

US Ambassador Stevens: “Conditions in Libya hadn’t met “benchmarks” to reduce American security personnel.”

8/2/2012

Ambassador Stevens:

1.     “The security condition in Libya remains unpredictable, volatile, and violent.”

2.     “Host nation security support is lacking and cannot be depended on to provide a safe and secure environment for the diplomatic mission of outreach.”

3.     “Request an additional 11 bodyguards at the U.S. Embassy in the Libyan capital of Tripoli.”

8/8/2012

Ambassador Stevens’s request for additional security was denied by the State Department and the 16-man temporary security team left Libya.

9/5/2012

Obama receives his daily intelligence briefing.

9/6/2012 – 9/10/2012

Obama skipped his daily intelligence briefing because  National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said: “(Obama) is among the most sophisticated consumers of intelligence on the planet.”

9/11/2012

4:05 pm     WH  received email from State Department that “US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi under attack.” 300 to 400 other people also saw the email.

4:54 pm     WH was told that “the firing… in Benghazi…has stopped….A response team is on site attempting to locate COM (embassy) personnel.””

6:07 pm     White House knew via US embassy in Tripoli that “the Islamic militant group “Ansar al-Sharia claims responsibility for Benghazi Attack.”

9/12/2012

  • Obama skipped his daily intelligence briefing and flew to Las Vegas for fund raising
  • CIA station chief in Libya wrote that “There was evidence that “Attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi) was carried out by militants, not a spontaneous mob upset about an American-made video ridiculing Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.
  • Hillary Clinton on Benghazi attack: “How could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?”
  • Hillary Clinton: “The U.S. was “working to determine the precise motivations and methods” for the attack and hinted that “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior  . . . . .  as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet.”
  • Hillary Clinton “strongly denounced both the anti-Islam video posted on the Internet that is rousing the angry protests throughout the Mideast and the violence targeting U.S. diplomatic compounds.”
  • Obama at WH White House Rose Garden: “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation . . . . . . “

9/13/2012

Hillary: “found the video “disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage.”

9/16/2012

U.S. Ambassador to UN, Susan Rice, blamed killing on spontaneous protests over an anti-Muslim film, and said on three TV appearances that “we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.”

9/18/2012

WH Press Secretary Jay Carney:

  • “Based on information that we — our initial information … we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a pre-planned or premeditated attack; that we saw evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video.”
  • “That is what we know” based on “concrete evidence, not supposition.”

Obama on Letterman:

  • “Here’s what happened. You had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who is extremely offensive [sic] video directed at Muhammad and Islam. .  .  . So this caused great offense in much of the Muslim world. But what also happened was extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies, including the one, the consulate in Libya.”

9/23/2012

Obama, on 60 Minutes with Steve Kroft, called terrorist attack against the U.S. “bumps in the road.”

9/25/2012

Obama on Benghazi at UN speech:

  • “That is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity.”
  • There’s no video that justifies an attack on an embassy.

10/11/2012

Biden: “We weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there.”

10/19/2012

With Jon Stewart, Obama said: If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We are going to fix it. All of it.”

———————————————————————————————————————–

Here is what actually happened:

After Obama found out Ambassador Stevens and three others were killed by Ansar al-ShariaObama decided that the resurgence of Al Qaeda will hurt his re-election chance. Obama instructed his campaign team to blame the deaths on  the video and got Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton spread the narrative on TV and covered up the truth.

Obama’s rational went like this:

Bin Laden is dead. Al Qaeda is decimated. Gaddafi is dead. Libya is liberated. Democracy flourishes in the Middle East.  Netanyahu has learned his lessons. Iran is still 2 years away from making a nuclear bomb.  The world is the safest ever. No intelligence briefing is needed. Stevens’s death is not optimal. The video is out there. Let’s blame the whole thing on that stupid video. Liberal media will help me spread the narrative. Called Susan and Hillary and let us get our stories straight. I have a campaign to run. I am leaving for Las vegas. Hillary, you are a big girl, You can take the heat.

Hillary Clinton has “taken responsibility” for the deadly security breach at Benghazi, saying the buck stopped with her and not the White House.

There goes Hillary’s chance to run for the president of the U.S. I wonder what Bill Clinton has to say now.
