“How Could This Happen in a Country We Helped Liberate?”


“How could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save from destruction?” Clinton said. “This question reflects just how complicated, and at times how confounding the world can be.”

Actually it’s not confounding at all. It’s ridiculously simple.

If Muammar Gaddafi were still alive he might give a bitter laugh to hear the news that the US ambassador to Libya had been killed in Benghazi. Hosni Mubarak, in his prison hospital, would growl a wry “I told you so” after the attack on the fortress-like American embassy in Cairo.

Two onslaughts in two of the cities that witnessed the historic drama of the Arab spring last year do not an Islamist winter make. But both underline the glowering and dangerous presence of the sort of radical Muslim fundamentalists whom the old regimes kept at bay or in prison and who are now free to pursue their agendas. Gaddafi and Mubarak may have been unreconstructed dictators, but by and large they did Washington’s bidding. And US diplomats were usually safe.

But Obama changed all that in the name of Muslim democracy or Osamacracy.

It was well known that the situation in Benghazi was violent and bad. If Hillary Clinton really didn’t know it, then there needs to be some major firings in the State Department.

Even people online acquainted with Sean Smith, one of the staffers murdered by Muslim thugs, knew about it and described an atmosphere of constant gunfire.

On Tuesday, Sean Smith, a Foreign Service Information Management Officer assigned to the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, typed a message to the director of his online gaming guild: ”Assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.” The consulate was under siege, and within hours, a mob would attack, killing Smith along with three others, including the U.S. ambassador.

The violent state of affairs in Benghazi was well known. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her Muslim Brotherhood girlfriend Huma Abedin chose to ignore it. That is their responsibility and they should pay a political price for that.

    I would love to see Obama and Hillary airdropped into Libya to hang with their "Arab Spring" friends. The blood of these 4 dead Americans on all both of their hands.

    Blasphemy has been committed by an Infidel on US shores. It has turned Muslims into Mujahedin and set a Jihad in motion. More than a simple apology is due; the president should issue a Fatwa that orders porno shops to close and the use of pork forbidden. Allahu Akbar.

    Where were the Guards and why did they not shoot?

    When will the PRESS ask that Question?

    • Daniel Greenfield

      The guards were Libyan and they ran away.

      • Rifleman

        Worse, they informed the mob where they hid the ambassador

      • flowerknife_us

        Where was his Marine Guard? On 9/11 anniversary?

        Was hitlery comfortable with her hand chosen Ambassador Without his Guard, exposed as he was MERCY of the natives.

    it was a freight train coming from the beginning – which this president salavated over, so smug & arrogant! He is our National Disgrace, the whole lot of them! Oh wait, will it be deemed "workplace violence" like Ft. Hood?
    The "movie" in question was their "excuse!"

  • drcrazycatkid

    It was September 11th that probably motivated the two attacks rather than a film. But there is always an excuse for violence that gives Obama a chance to apologize.

  • LCH

    and if that's not enough, I just heard via "news" that Obama said "this was just a "rogue group and will NOT hurt our relations with Libya!" Are you kidding, "a rogue group???" And there is the problem! This WAS NOT a "rogue group" you idiot! What is it going to take with this president to quit appeasing to people who want to Kill you!
    In other words, he going to do NOTHING!

  • The Hammer

    There is plenty of evidence that Obama is sympathetic to Islam. I do not believe he is a Muslim, but his background is such that he will be complacent about the rise of Islam. It is a huge problem that Western governments have been drinking the Kool-Aid that it is always, "a rogue group" that perpetrates violence. It is time for Western politicians, en masse, to denounce Islam and accept that we are in WW3 with Islam, and then fight this war to win. Unbelievable that we would issue an apology, except that such action can possibly protect other Americans on the ground in Islamic countries.

    • Bright Knight

      The problem is, that you cannot win a war when you don't a) recognize and b) name the enemy. Most of the politicians in the Western Civilization don't do either one.

  • Bright Knight

    There is a saying "The only stupid question is the one you don't ask." but this one is a stupid one or at least it's the WRONG question, because "we" haven't liberated anyone! As said, first of all the "we" is wrong! It was the decision of the Obama regime – they didn't even ask the Congress for approval, so, if Mrs. "clueless" Clinton meant with "we" America, she would be wrong, if she meant the regime, I would agree. Secondly, we haven't "liberated" anyone. The Obama regime decided to bomb his new friends and allies from the Muslim Brotherhood into power, i.e. they decided to replace a bad guy we mostly had under control (to the extent you can have a Muslim under control) with a bunch of guys who are even worse, so I don't see any "liberation" there.

    Like the "Black Hawk Down" disaster in Mogadishu, the murder of our four diplomats in Benghazi is the true face of Islam. It is time to pummel these religious freaks once and for all.

    Nothing makes terrorists hate one more than helping them. Israel has always been the most hated country on earth, but hatred zoomed to unprecedented heights when Israel unilaterally withdrew from Gaza and gave the Gazans a de facto independent country. The situation in Libya is analogous. Libyan terrorists hate America more than they did before because America helped them.

  • jemaasjr

    We are to the point where the easiest conclusion, and therefore the most likely one, is that Obama is sympathetic to Islam. Why is a matter of speculation. And oh yeah. Hillary is really starting to look like a dunce. If she had an ounce of decency she would announce an unwillingness to go along with our current foreign policy and quit.

  • Terry

    Where is a Reagan or even a Kennedy? ALL US aid to Libya, Egypt and Yemen should be suspended forthwith and indefinately. Let these countries decompose in their own medieval poverty. Let them starve.

    Instead, Clinton apologises in the manner that Chamberlain apeased *itler. They hate you anyway, Monica!! Save yourself some aid money and let them rot!! And if they don't pull their heads in send in some bombers to remnind them who is boss. How many ambassodors have to be killed before monica starts to think that something's wrong with these islamic savages?!!

  • Henry

    American Islamic Sheik went go on TV and stated "Islam is not a religion" Islam is a "Way of Life". So if Muslim Sheiks say Islam is not a religion, why does the American President say it is? Shouldn't it be OUTLAWED world-wide as one big terrorist organization.

  • JakeTobias

    Hillary, it depends on what the meaning of the word "liberation" is is.
