The Muslim Maelstrom: Rage Against America

Obama announces Letterman appearance on the same day he snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

Susan Rice, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations for the Obama regime, made the rounds this morning on ABC’s This Week, NBC’s Meet The Press. CBS’s Face The Nation, CNN’s State of the Union and Fox News Sunday.

She repeatedly lied to viewers insisting that the howling, bearded, bloodthirsty cutthroats responsible for the September 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans was in response to a 13-minute video trailer on YouTube™.  She described it as “spontaneous”.

On CNN’s State of the Union, Rice argued that the assassination of ambassador Christopher Stevens was not evidence Obama’s policies in the Muslim world have failed.

She said those responsible for the attack represented a tiny pocket of extremism fanned by an anti-Islamic film and that anti-American sentiment was not sweeping Libya nearly a year after it was liberated. “I’ve been to Libya and walked the streets of Benghazi myself,” she said. “The U.S. is extremely popular in Libya,” Rice said.  Yes, we are little Susie, as a target.

Curiously, Mohammed Yussef Magariaf, Libya’s president of the General National Congress flatly contradicted Rice’s assertion saying an investigation “leaves us with no doubt” the attack was not spontaneous.

“It was planned, definitely, it was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago, and they were planning this criminal act since their arrival,” Magariaf told CBS.

Let me state for the record that I am no foreign policy wonk, but I am fully capable of recognizing helplessness when I see it.

For months before the most recent attacks on U.S. embassies in North African states, Foreign Ministry and U.S. State Department officials had been arguing over developments in these countries. Senior figures in Jerusalem claimed that Washington was burying its head in the sand and ignoring the increasing radicalization in states such as Tunisia and Egypt.

CNN reports that a member of the February 17th Brigade as well as a battalion commander met with American diplomats three days before the murderous attacks to warn them about “deteriorating security” saying, “The situation is frightening, it scares us.

Our State Department and the Defense Department had done nothing meaningful to protect the ambassador. When the killers attacked the US compound, they were heavily armed with anti-aircraft automatic cannon and RPG's. They were a recognizably violent group connected with al Qaeda.

And now the main building in the consulate stands in charred ruins and the remains of our fallen ambassador have come home in a box.  Shameful.  Simply shameful.

The dangerous ineptitude of U.S. foreign policy has been fully exposed.  The State Department told reporters Friday afternoon that it won't answer any more questions about the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans until the investigation into the incident is complete.

The reluctance of US officials to give details about the Libya probe betrays their determination to track down those who killed Stevens, the first American envoy killed in the line of duty since 1979.

I will close this post by citing the thoughts of Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center and a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.
“The blood of free men goes on dripping into the sewers of Kabul or Baghdad and a hundred other places and the Jihad hums along. Slowly and deliberately we learn to censor ourselves, adopting the habits of the Dhimmi, kowtowing to our masters, praising their learning, their wisdom and above all their mercy. If they have gone a day without killing us, does it not show what a peaceful people they are?”
“Without going through the formalities of reciting the Shahada or donning the Burqa, we are becoming slaves. Our leaders have sold our rights to pay the blood price; our cultural elites are eagerly teaching us the habits and mindset of slavery. To always obey, to never question and to know that our Muslim masters are always right. If they kill us, then we have done something to deserve it. If they fly planes into our buildings, it is time for some soul searching. If they go mad and kill, that is an expression of the pain and suffering that we have made them feel.”
“We apologize not because we have done anything wrong, but because they are angry. And every time they are angry, we know that we have done something wrong. Like dogs, our leaders develop the moral reflex of a newspaper across the nose, accepting that they are guilty when Muslims carry out violence. The worse the violence, the more they apologize.”
