“Who’s on First” ? Continues

Recently the NY Post published an article that the Obama administration was considering the release of blind Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman as a goodwill gesture toward Egypt.

In response to a question on this, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said this:

“Let me say as clearly as I can, there is no plan to release the Blind Sheikh – there is no plan,” Nuland said. “To my knowledge we have not been approached about it recently by any senior Egyptians.”

Okay. Let me say as clearly as I can,

“there is no plan for me to ever be critical of the Obama administration on this website. To my knowledge I have not been approached recently by Cindy about this.”

    >It’s the video’s fault

    >It was random

    >It was spontaneous

    >It had nothing to do with 9/11

    >The Consulate was well secured

    >Two of the murdered were Marines

    >These two’s main duty was providing security for the Ambassador

    >It was not terrorist related

    Every one of these claims by the Obama administration was wrong. They pretty much got nothing right. This under and unreported story illustrates the total failure of President Obama’s apology and appeasement policy in the Muslim World. From the very beginning of the aftermath of this tragedy, members of both political parties that are on Intelligence committees, have shared differing and more pertinent views than the Obama Administration on the circumstances relating to the Benghazi attack.

    These members of Congress had some of the same information and intelligence as the White House but they are not running for President.

    A strong argument can be made that the administration’s constantly drawing attention to the video, which includes just recently airing an apology ad in Pakistan on the video, has contributed to the worldwide unrest. In Pakistan alone, 229 demonstrators have died.

    And Joe (Biden), killing Osama bin Laden is not foreign policy. Constantly and publicly declaring our killing him shows you have absolutely no clue of foreign or world religious cultures, except when some of them emigrate here and work at 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts. But many of us expect no better from you–heck, you’re in a tough political race.

  2. Randy. The policies of the neoconservative movement have put more people in the grave than small pox. What do you wanna do now? “Occupy” another country? Blow up a few huts outside of Benghazi to show how tough we are? Add a few nations to the Axis of Evil?

    Do you know how ridiculous it sounds when you guys preach to Americans about not knowing Muslim culture and the President fanning the flames of worldwide unrest? You’ve got to be freakin’ kidding me.

  3. Randy in Richmond says:

    Strupp, your entire first paragraph is a typical attempt to divert from the subject of my comment while having absolutely nothing to do with it.

    No. I’m not kidding. Neither is former UN Ambassador John Bolton, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Senator John McCain–ranking member of Armed Services Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, Chairman House Intelligence Committee, none of whom qualify as neoconservatives as well as many others. All I want is for Americans representing my country to be protected as best as possible. That did not happen here. And when something does happen–the truth. Not the Chicago style political spin this President is so good at dishing out. He’s in over his head in this foreign policy fiasco.

    I’m not alone.
