The crap has been hitting the fan in such volume the last couple of days that I have to resort to this format for some abbreviated coverage.
From the above quote, Obama has loosed his A Team of Liars, aka the ‘They’ll Believe Anything Brigade’, that hit all the talk shows yesterday. On Chris Wallace’s Fox News program the man had to search for a prosthetic to help keep his slack jaw in place as our UN ambassador Susan Rice recounted with a straight face that the administration is absolutely sure that the Mideast riots, that coincidentally started on 9/11, were all due to the sleazy video that was posted last July.
The RPGs and heavy machine guns in a coordinated assault supported by indirect fire was a normal consequence of Banghazi families always carrying such items in their picnic baskets as they were coming home from their weekend BBQs in the park. The mortars? Oh, that was also normal - the usual weekend maneuvers and indirect fire competitions that the city’s mosques carry out in lieu of cricket or soccer matches. It's a cultural thing, lots of fun.
The woman was serious in maintaining that everything for a coordinated assault was already in place, and merely had to be redirected when someone realized, ‘Oh, that video!’, and they all started heading for our consulate. The worldwide riots have absolutely nothing to do with America’s foreign policy. And the administration has proof from the FBI forensic teams, …, or they will have when they are allowed into Benghazi. It’s only a matter of time, in the meanwhile, these certifiable conclusions from senior administration officials are neither premature nor mistaken.
You really want evidence? Well, we’ll see what ol’ Eric Holder has to say about releasing these privileged communications that the FBI will surely provide the President in the fullness of time. In the interval, let’s get back to Romney and excoriate him for not having spelled out a proper and timely security policy for our Mideastern embassies, not that there was anything wrong with the one we had in place.
Besides, our ambassador and staff could also have died from some unfortunate friendly fire, because it is widely known that since Obama 'reset' our Muslim attitudes, the US is now loved and respected in Islamic lands. Anyway, these things could happen to anybody, and it is only that self-serving Romney who played politics by injecting the whole matter into a campaign that was really supposed to be focused on his suspicious tax returns.
Exit rumination: And this sock puppet - at best an empty skirt - is on the short list for SecState in Obama's second term?!
[20sep12 update] Well, it’s turning out that as more time passes and more undeniable facts pour in about the Cairo and Benghazi embassy riots, the Blazing Skirt’s (aka UN ambassador Susan Rice) performance was really comedy central. A routine that has now been backed up by more unbelievable briefings from the WH and Foggy Bottom. The only remaining true believers that Obama’s foreign policy is not in tatters are the lamestream, and those whose brainballs they monopolize.
Remember the big PR ceremony with Hillary and Russia’s foreign minister pushing the big ‘reset button’ of Russo-American relations that Bush2 was supposed to have messed up. It appears that these relations were at their zenith during the W’s reign, and have been going into the mud ever since they put the red button back into a drawer. Today we learn that Putin has kicked out US AID from Russia. Under this international program America has pumped about $3B into Russia since its rebirth. Putin’s reason? – US AID has tried “to influence political processes, including elections of various types.” Foiled by Russia on every US foreign policy front, Obama continues to deny that his foreign policy here has been an utter failure.
