More bowing and scraping from the Appeaser in Chief

US spends $70k to air Obama, Clinton denunciation of anti-Islam film in Pakistan

WASHINGTON - The American Embassy in Islamabad, in a bid to tamp down public rage over the anti-Islam film produced in the U.S., is spending $70,000 to air an ad on Pakistani television that features President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton denouncing the video...

Might be the best $70,000 the US spends this year. On the other hand, it may do nothing.

How could anyone other than the sort of dumbass who made the offending anti-Islam video possibly see that as a bad thing?

Seriously, where's the businesslike pragmatism conservatives ought to excel at?

A much more practical and economical approach would be a full invasion and occupation of every country that demonstrates against the US.

The Obama Libya spin: unraveling:

The Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was in fact "a terrorist attack" and the U.S. government has indications that members of al Qaeda were directly involved, a top Obama administration official said Wednesday morning.

"I would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy," Matt Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, said Wednesday at a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, in response to questioning from Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-CT) about the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

As for who was responsible, Olsen said it appears there were attackers from a number of different militant groups that operate in and around Benghazi, and said there are already signs of al Qaeda involvement.

Is this story simply being pushed as a distraction to Mitt Romney's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week? I can't imagine that Republicans believe this story has any legs, much less that blaming Obama for a tragic incident in Libya will do anything to sway independent voters. Romney's ham-fisted attempts to spin political yarn out of the tragedy met with criticism from both sides of the aisle, yet here we are, staring in disbelief as foaming-at-the-mouth political hacks continue flogging the issue.

As much as I dislike Mitt Romney, I hope he avoids this faux controversy altogether. The mere notion that a Presidential candidate would engage in such offensive grandstanding may signal some sort of "point of no return" in the world of shameless partisanship. And furthermore, it can only hurt his chances of winning the Presidency.

Just find a nest of violent malcontents, stir'em with a stick, and presto, instant "justification" for whatever level of intervention/conquest/rapine you might desire.

They lied for weeks and threw some schulb in the pokey....

CNSNews.com) - On Sept. 11, 2012, just two hours after the State Department first began notifying government agencies back in Washington--including the White House--that the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was under attack by armed men, State sent out an email that went to at least two people in the White House that said the group Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility for the attack.

The email, which was sent from a State Department address at 6:07 PM on Sept. 11, 2012, was obtained by CBS News and posted online by the news agency in a PDF file. This email and others posted by CBS News had certain elements redacted--particularly the exact identities of the person who sent it and the persons who received it

Yeah, they probably should have halted the investigation after someone claimed responsibility. Hell, I guess I could have claimed responsibility and we would have had airstrikes in Fitchburg.

They had the facts and they lied to shield Obama from the results of his constant pandering to Islamofascists.

There's a guy (who might fit any definition of Islamofascist that the nutters agree on) whose ashes are floating around in the Persian Gulf who might have another take on said pandering.

Tell us how it all fits together, Ned.
