Another aspect of the Benghazi debacle….

We all are coming to realize that the Øbama regime displayed remarkable stupidity in the way they covered up the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three others in Benghazi.   Clearly, despite Øbama’s false outrage at debate #2, the coverup was clearly political, designed to keep the story suppressed and the blame off of Øbama prior to the election.  The facts and the timelines support this.  We now know what they knew and when they knew it.

But consider another side effect of this coverup: did the focusing of blame on an otherwise completely unknown anti Muslim movie to cover the regime’s incompetence in an election season spark all of the violent protests in the Middle East and beyond?  So what was the real trigger?

As far as I can determine, the offending movie was posted on YouTube back on July 1, 2012 and nothing happened.  No violence, no comments, no nothing.  It didn’t go viral on the internet.  Nothing.  Then the preezy and his minions use it as a scapegoat to cover their incompetence.  Then the violence begins.  Øbama and his mouthpieces continue to blame the movie for his fecklessness for the next two weeks, even apologizing at the UN, and the violence increases.

If there is one thing we know about Muslim outrage, it is that it can be turned on like a light switch.  So why the apparent delay?

I submit to you that there was no delay: nobody knew or cared about the movie until Øbama and his mouthpieces came out and put it out as the reason for their lousy support for our ambassador.  That is when the troubles began.  All the violence started after the preezy blamed the “protest” on the movie, not before.  A look at Wikipedia on “reactions to Innocence of Muslims” show the violent protest, injuries and deaths as occurring on or after 9/11/12.

Did the Øbama regime scheme to use the hyper sensitivity of Muslims to cause the Middle East to blow up as it did to lend credence to their fabricated story, or was it just more rank incompetence?   It really doesn’t matter at this point, as the effects are the same: people are dead, property destroyed and the image of the United States further besmirched by the clowns in the White House and the State Department.

It is my contention that the Øbama administration is to blame for the rash of post Benghazi violence and deaths in their haste to cover up the mess in Benghazi.  The inescapable fact is that they bear full responsibility for all the collateral damage, both political and in lives and property.

Øbama says the buck stops with him.  Let him prove it.

A disturbing pattern throughout the Middle East and north Africa

We’ve helped, directly and indirectly, to install Islamists into positions of power in Libya and Egypt within the last year. You can clearly argue we do not know who is in control of either country or what their intentions are. This patchwork of power in the region is unstable at best, and throughout – including east to Afghanistan and Pakistan – I’m seeing a disturbing pattern.
