Mideast violence


Media lets Obama totally off hook

The Obama administration wants us to believe the violence in the Middle East is all spontaneous reaction to an innocuous web video that first came out in July.
Really?
We now know that Ambassador Susan Rice had more security protecting her here in the U.S. than did the U.S. Embassy in Libya.
Our ambassador in Libya was killed because President Obama did not have the prescience to beef up security on the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11 -- especially after the Islamic Brotherhood's rise to power.
We also know that the Obama administration received a warning two days in advance of the attack on the Embassy in Egypt, but did nothing to beef up security there either.
Obama and his spokespeople in the liberal media want us to believe that this was all a response to the aforementioned video.
It's the video's fault.
It's disgusting. I just watched a segment on Fox that shows thugs roaming the streets outside the embassy carrying shoulder launched RPG's right before the attack -- with no one else in sight.
Since when do a bunch of spontaneous demonstrators carry RPGs around?
The news media continue to do Obama's bidding, their liberal blinders welded on tight, trying to convince us that Obama had no responsibility in all this.
What happened to real journalists, the ones who put the country first before their party, the ones who ask the tough questions and hold the administration accountable?
