Naïveté, weakness, and incompetence lead to death, disaster: Did the Three Stooges cause World War II?
(Page 2 of 5)
Imagine what Ronald Reagan would say if he knew an American Ambassador and three State Department employees were dead because of a feckless global strategy conceived by the President and all too willingly executed by this Secretary of State.
As a direct result of the policies devised and executed by Secretary Clinton, as seen here in this Google mapping of anti-American explosions taking place in the last few days, U.S. embassies, State Department personnel, local authorities or some combination thereof are under assault in the following countries:
And the Secretary of State’s explanation for this carnage?
“We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.”
This would be a joke if the thinking behind this statement — the thinking behind the Obama-Clinton policies — were not so deadly serious. Worse, the utterly laughable lapdog media rushes to defend this utter nonsense.
A wretchedly lousy video created by some loon in California has done all this? Not to mention caused the legion of global attacks by this or that Islamic group or individual that date back decades?
The Secretary could not possibly be serious. Not to mention the White House. Did I forget the Ambassador to the United Nations? Alas, the party line of “willful blindness” (as Andrew McCarthy calls it) has been set. Nothing to see here. Blame the film maker and move on.
Worse still, violate the film maker’s fundamental First Amendment rights. How? By having local authorities drag him out of his home after midnight for a meeting with federal officers and the purpose of filming a much televised “perp” walk designed to appease Islamic fanatics. A spectacularly thuggish attempt designed to intimidate this man into silence. This policy is not simply feckless, it’s grossly irresponsible. And combined with the inattention to the security of State Department personnel in Benghazi the results have been literally murderous.
LET’S BEGIN in the beginning.
As in the beginning when the new President-elect appointed Senator Clinton as Secretary of State because, in the new President’s words:
“To succeed, we must pursue a new strategy that skillfully uses, balances, and integrates all elements of American power: our military and diplomacy; our intelligence and law enforcement; our economy and the power of our moral example,”
Ahhhhhhhhhh the new strategy. But of course! And why was that new strategy needed?
