The Associated Press continues its egregious display of political and philosophical bias by refusing to report the most important news story of the day, because it is a story most damaging to President Obama. One would think that in their creative genius for manufacturing alleged news, that they could distort, twist and bend the facts reported by credible sources about the attack on the Libyan embassy, which reveal a massive blunder and cover up by the Obama Administration. Too difficult a task it seems, or perhaps AP realizes that they would lose all credibility if they tried to spin the story.
The most important priority as president is keeping America and its citizens safe. While I was a member of our nation’s military, it was impressed upon us that our embassies in every country of the world were considered American soil and obviously, our ambassador and every American employed at the embassy is entitled to protection from harm. We were informed that an attack upon our embassy was an act of war, and such attack would result in quick military response against the enemy responsible.
We now know that Islamic terrorists attacked the Libyan embassy and murdered our ambassador and other Americans. We also now know that the Obama administration was aware that our Libyan ambassador had asked for beefed-up security and his request was denied. We now know that either during the ongoing attack, or immediately following, the Obama administration knew this was a planned terrorist attack, on the anniversary of 9/11. Yet for 10 days the president, secretary of state, our U.N. Ambassador, and most of the Obama administration attributed the attack to anger caused by a You Tube trailer that degraded Muhammad.
We can only assume Obama wants the voters to believe that — in his words — “Al Qaeda has been dismantled and is on the run,” and that Islamic terrorism is no longer a threat to America, or its citizens.
As commander-in-chief, Obama’s failure to respond to an act of war upon America and its citizens is disgustingly unacceptable. Lying about the circumstances of the act of war is cause for impeachment and removal from office.
