Don't just blame Obama, the sickness is pervasive

Until I read the below article I believed that the death of US ambassador Stephens in Libya was basically his own fault. This ambassador who gained his political awareness through the 'Peace Corps' and graduated fully identifying with palestinian aims to destroy the State of Israel, whose last post was as political officer in the rabidly anti-Israel environment of the US East Jerusalem consulate fully identified with arab and islamic culture and aims. Who better to represent the USA? Traitor to the USA, western civilisation and enemy of Israel Stephens might have been, but it seems he didn't have a death wish. 

The news reports most likely put out by Obama's damage limiting Clinton and the State Department said Stephens had rejected a strong US security team in favour of a Libyan one. Stephens was after all the arab friend, promoted islamist goals and hated Israel. What better credentials for an ambassador to Libya? Of course none of this washed with those who were after the head of a kuffr ambassador of the USA whose usefulness would be most expressed by his death.

It now seems that the USA had a drone in the air above the CIA hideout which was used as a fallback position once the americans were driven out of the embassy in Benghazi. Clinton and Obama very likely watched Stephen's murder along with other US citizens without lifting a finger. US ships with massive airpower were within striking distance only a few minutes away but no La Drang style 'broken arrow' operation was launched which could have saved the situation. The ambassador was sacrificed whilst his superiors went through the motions of doing something.  Many hours were wasted in bringing a special team over from the european mainland. By that time the ambassador and four innocent americans lay dead, their bodies mutilated.

The USA has lost the will to protect not only its allies but even its very most important symbols of state. It's ironic that the best friend the arab world had, a man who identified himself not with the USA but with the cause of its enemies was chosen to be Obama's gift in furtherance of the cause of arab and islamic radicalism. I hope eastern asian states have taken notice facing as they are a newly aggressive China. China which like radical islam and arabs has noticed that the USA nowadays has lost the will to support its own interests and those it used to call 'allies' is conducting provocations all around the China Sea region with little protest, warnings or signs of support to its allies from the USA.

The USA nowadays abandons its allies and funds its enemies such as with the case of Egypt. No enemy must be allowed to pay for its nefarious works, no enemy civilian may be hurt even inadvertently thus limiting the ability to protect even the most vital symbols of the US.
The USA has such reserves of strength, it can afford to have the odd Carter and Obama who love US enemies more than their own country and allies. But the damage to the US reputation takes decades to repair. Obama will not be forgotten by arab countries terrified of being overrun by Iran. Israel will not forget that a formerly peaceful Egypt was handed over to the Muslim Brotherhood by Obama, with Libya's weapons being  used to complicate an already serious situation in Israel's south. 

We must watch with baited breath whilst americans vote for a new president. I can't believe that the american people once burned are stupid enough to wish for a second helping of Obama but should the US president who hates his own adopted country be voted in again, it will be fascinating to see just how much western civilisation and peaceful norms of behaviour will be supplanted in favour of tyranny and barbarism.

'They Watched, and Our People Died' in Benghazi'

A US drone was hovering over the US Consulate in Benghazi last month as Al Qaeda-linked terrorists murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens.

An American unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was hovering over the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 during the attack in which bloodthirsty Al Qaeda-linked terrorists murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others.

The military backup that should have been racing to the scene, launched in response by those monitoring the Predator drone and other reconnaissance aircraft, moved too slowly and came too late, charged a former CIA commander.

Gary Berntsen told CBS News this week that the savage attack on the consulate was observed in detail by top officials at the U.S. Defense Department as it took place. Terrorists armed with AK-47 assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) launched a full-scale attack on both the consulate building itself, and the “safe house” located a short distance away.

It was to the second building, which also allegedly housed CIA operations, that Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other American diplomats had been taken in the hopes of keeping them out of harm's way. But the effort failed, with the diplomats and their security guards overwhelmed by the numbers, weaponry and military nature of the attacking force.

American Defense Department officials were too slow to respond when they saw what was happening, charged Berntsen, and didn't send in the troops fast enough.

“They stood, and they watched, and our people died,” he raged. “They made zero adjustments in this. You find a way to make this happen. There isn't a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments.”

Sources told CBS there were fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships stationed at three nearby bases. But Pentagon officials told reporters the military moved a special ops team from central Europe to Sigonella, Italy instead – an hour's flight from Libya – and refused to provide further details.

A White House source told the network that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey “looked at available options, and the ones we exercised had our military forces arrive in less than 24 hours, well ahead of timelines laid out in established policies.”

By then, the screaming mob of thousands of radical Islamists, whipped into a bloodthirsty frenzy, had torched the cars on the site, torn the building apart, and destroyed the consulate. And four American diplomats were dead.

According to a report published by The New York Times, witnesses have identified Ahmad Abu Khattala as the ringleader of the attack.

But Libyan authorities have not arrested him, nor has he been taken into custody. In fact, he gave the newspaper an interview as he sipped a milkshake on a hotel patio, mocking both the Libyan and U.S. governments.

“Here I am, sitting in a hotel with you,” he pointed out. “I'm even going to pick up my sister's kids from school soon.”

Ambassador Stevens repeatedly noted in communiques to Washington that weak security was an issue at the consulate. He noted in June there had been a spike in attacks against “international organizations and foreign interests,” ABC News reported. In August, he sent a cable warning of a series of violent incidents that “dominated the political landscape during the Ramadan holiday.”

The ambassador underscored to his superiors at the State Department  that the attacks were “organized” and that Libyan security personnel was not a “stabilizing force.” He also noted that the Libyan security force provided “little deterrence” – a major red flag that Washington apparently ignored.

Repeated requests to the Obama administration for additional security to the consulate in Benghazi were rejected.
