Here we have Obama a few days late and a few dollars short again. I suppose he is looking for a YOUTUBE movie to blame. This was Terrorism Mr. President, just like Benghazi and here you are again in a big fog over it wondering about what happened. American Hostages were Killed that’s what happened. Once again we have the Taliban causing the mess, the group that you claimed before the reelection was contained. Right. Now we know that was just a political stunt because you are clueless as usual.

Instead of paying attention to the economy you went for Obamacare which will only hurt the economy. Instead of these issues over terrorism you focusing on gun control which useless instead of affairs of state particularly US Hostages taken. You did nothing. They are all dead. I am sure you and Mrs. Obama need to go on another lavish vacation to avoid any discussion of your ineptness.

Ok, no problem, let me spell it out for you, Mr. President.

Your fetish for supporting militant Islamist regimes has vastly increased the number of jihadists under arms world wide, who, (by the way), hate all Americans, including the progressive socialists who adore them.

In this particular case, your penchant for “leading from behind” and not acting ‘arrogantly’ with foreign nations, (although you seem to have no problem acting arrogantly with your own citizens), has allowed a woefully inadequate military force to stage a so-called “rescue attempt” of American citizens.

A *real leader* would have laid down the law with the Algerian government and allowed them to send a token force along for the ride with US SEALS and Delta force to effect the assault.

That CLEAR ENOUGH for you, Mr. President?

As always a peace loving group of islamists militants, took innocent, unarmed civilians hostage, made insane demands they knew would never be met and then murdered the said hostages, rather then free them. It doesn’t matter if a rescue attempt was involved, unarmed civilians are not supposed to be harmed according to the koran; but then again these are the same type of people that kill women and children also in violation of the koran.

Do Obama and his administration understand anything? That is the real question! Obama has taken so much election money from Saudi Arabia and others that he is caught in the middle of all these terrorist attracts. He has been neutered in foreign policy by his own greed and we are paying for it with our lives. The deaths of every American killed in the Middle East are on the hands of the voters who elected this cretin.

Mr. President. I’ll help you understand what’s happened. This is a result of policies that came out of the White House occupied by an amateur. That’s what happens when policy is driven by “feel good” mentality rather than understanding of the region. For years there was a balance of power in the Middle East mostly due to four governments: Israel, Egypt, Libya and Syria. Combination of intergovernmental agreements and cooperation, as well as animosities with others, kept the balance. Then our leader decided to fix it. As a result Egypt is on the way to become second Iran and Egyptians themselves claim living under the Muslim regime is much more difficult than under Mubarak. Recently Muslim Brothers government announced that citizens better follow new Sharia law or “their blood will be splattered on the streets”. That’s democracy Obama and Clinton assured us will come to Egypt. As a result of Gaddafi’s regime collapse thousands of mercenaries who were on his payroll left Libya and many of them joined terrorist movements. Better yet, these foreigners and Libya’s Muslim militants took weapon with them. By some account 40 thousand shoulder fired missiles are missing along with other heavy armament and vehicles. Mr. President, I hope it’s helpful

During the Watergate investigations, President Nixon was forced to resign or be impeached for the attempted cover-up of breaking into a hotel room to uncover the Democrats election strategy. This was sold as a constitution crisis by the left.

Hillary Clinton was a member of the Watergate Commission and was fired for lying and other illegal activity.

Funny after Vince Foster committed “Suicide” boxes of records were seized from his office. At the time Congress was investigating “White Water” and demanding that Mr. Foster release all the documents related to the Rose law Firms connection. You remember Mr. Foster and Hillary worked at the Rose Law Firm. Those records went missing and Hillary under oath said she had no recollection of what went on. Then 3 years later these records were found in First Lady Hillary’s desk at the White House. Quite the accomplished liar.

Eric Holder covered up Fast & Furious, He claims he knew nothing and when he finally learned about it he stopped the program. Hundreds of dead Mexican citizens and a murdered US Border Patrol Agent.

President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Leon Panetta, and a host of the lefts most shrill talking heads, willfully try to cover up their mendacious storyline blaming the deaths of four Americans, on an obscure video.

They refused ambassador Christopher Stevens numerous requests to increase security in Benghazi, on the anniversary of 911. An Ambassador killed, and three other fine Americans dead who by all accounts refused orders to stand down, and tried to save the ambassadors life.

Now we have 35 dead hostages in Algeria, 7 Americans and all we hear from President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is crickets. Now Obama seeks “fuller understanding” of what happened in Algeria siege

In the last few weeks one of our Nuclear Submarines crashed into a fishing boat.

A U.S. Navy minesweeper ran aground on a coral reef in the Philippines.
Must be the New Obama Navy!

The disastrous Domestic and Foreign policy of this administration, and the deaths of these Americans, should bring immediate calls for impeachment and several high level resignations.

Obama has ZERO interest in finding out who murdered our Ambassador and torched a consulate, in fact he has repeatedly called the murder of the Ambassador a “bump in the road”.

Obama has ZERO interest in retaliating against those that destroyed our consulate and murdered our ambassador. He might insult or offend Morsi we can only assume.

So to even remotely believe that Maobama cares about American civilians (unless they are black of course) is just plain ludicrous.

What must be sought? It’s simple Obama -

1. Individuals from all over the world worked at the Algerian gas plant.
2. A group of Islamic terrorists – who as Obama says ‘are on the run’ – sieged the plant and took the workers hostage, killing some of them.
3. The Algerian governemnt – knowing that American wobblers would do nothing – made sure everyone was dead, including the remaining hostages.

What caused this tradgedy? That’s simple too. Islamic terrorists no longer fear America. They are laughing at us. When they start their jihad on US soil it will be up to ex-military, retired law enforcement officers and right-minded citizens to arm themselves and stop the holy war that Washington is too afraid to admit exists let alone address.

Of course, the press will have nothing negative to say about Obama’s mishandling of the catastrophe, just as it gave Obama a pass on the murder of Americans in Benghazi on 9/11/2012. I do not need to remind anyone of what US journalists would be writing if Romney were in office.
