Last week, the drone was Obama’s weapon of choice and his war strategy was working.
This week, CBS News reports:
“. . . there had been threats that Islamic militants might try to take revenge for the death of al Qaeda’s No. 2 commander Abu Yahya al-Libi, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan in June, and he said the U.S. consulate should have been better protected. Confirming al-Libi’s death for the first time in a video posted online Monday, al Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahri called on Muslim’s in al-Libi’s native Libya to take revenge for his death.”
Follow the logic with me: on Monday, September 10, Al Qaeda instructs Libyan Muslims to take revenge on Americans. On Tuesday, September 11, Libyan Muslims storm the embassy, Libyan officials betray the ambassador’s safe house, Muslim terrorists kill him and drag his body through the streets. This was a terrorist act, not a religious one.
The “your film clip insulted Mohammad” line is a cover story to divert American attention from the fact that Muslim terrorists struck Americans on 9/11 AGAIN, three years into Obama’s watch, as a direct result of the President’s specific war policy choices and we knew it was coming.
The cover story is intended to protect Obama by appealing to American Liberals who want to blame Jewish filmmakers and Christian ministers for Muslim violence under the same “look what you made me do” reasoning used by wife-beaters everywhere. Saddest of all, it seems to be working.
