“Make no mistake. We will work with the Libyan government to bring justice to killers who attack our people.” ”There is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.” These were the words of pretend-gunslinger Barack Hussein Obama one day after Libyan Ambassador Christopher Stevens was murdered, raped and dragged through the streets of Benghazi to the cheers of the Muslim crowd.
But a month has elapsed since the 9/11 killings of Stevens and three of his colleagues, and Obama is engaged in the 2012 election, something far more important to the president than the murder of a few Americans by his fellow Islamists. And naturally, Barack would not wish to offend his far-left base by launching deliberately deadly attacks against some of their favorite Muslim terrorists—that being those who actually succeeded in killing Americans.
So the justice-conscious Obama has retreated to the West Wing as the American people are told that “…the White House is now weighing whether to pursue those responsible through law enforcement or via military means like drone strikes or special operations.” And not only are we in the U.S. being told of Obama’s potential plans; the Libyan terrorists responsible for the killings have also been alerted. Helpful as always to enemies of the United States, the New York Times printed a story on October 2nd revealing that “…the United States is laying the groundwork for operations to kill or capture militants implicated in the deadly attack on a diplomatic mission in Libya.” Nothing like warning your prey that a hunter is preparing to stalk them!
Of course, the Times recommends against any sort of foolish attack on Libyan soil. After all, Obama’s “…support for the revolt against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi had created a surge in good feeling toward the United States that is unique in the region.” A surge in good feeling? Maybe the Times reckons that “good feeling” according to the fact that Libya’s Islamic terrorists killed only 4 Americans rather than 40! Good thing they like us, isn’t it?!
But the intelligence sources from whom the Times claims to have received its story also told the paper of record that “…there is always a risk of flight in a situation like this.” Strange as it may seem, the terrorists in question might decide to suddenly disappear, especially as they’ve been told that Barack has a list of their names and might aim a cruise missile in their direction.
Rest assured, Barack Obama will choose the course of action that he believes will yield the most favorable political payoff. Another defeat in one of the scheduled debates, and we may well witness missiles flying all over Libya as Barack decides to sacrifice the “good feelings” of his Muslim friends in exchange for becoming the all-American angel of vengeance. It will probably change very few minds at the polls, but desperate times call for desperate measures, don’t they?!
