I No Longer Recognize My Country!

No comments

The Obama Administration was quick to publicly blame a Youtube video for the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Even as, we know now, they knew that this was not a spontaneous attack within hours of the attacks happening, they made the decision to lie to us. It took this Administration over two weeks to officially call this act clearly for what it was, a Terrorist Attack.

But things do not stop there, we now also know that Ambassador Stevens was concerned about his life and requested more security. That request was denied! There was no extra security on September 11, 2012; I believe that we all know how significant that day is for radical Muslims. But for the current Administration, apparently it was just another day. No need for extra weapons, no need for extra soldiers to protect Ambassador Stevens. It is the mentality in action that if we are just nice with radical Muslims and apologize in advance, everything is going to be okay! Right?

All of these notions, so far, are disgusting, childless, ignorant, insensitive, and irresponsible enough. Somebody ought to be fired, but the President referred to this incident as a “Bump in the road.”

I went to the gym today to exercise; I was on the treadmill listening to the news when braking news was announced. The truth of Benghazi’s tragedy continues to take center stage.  http://news.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474981725280 reported these news as follow:

“On Friday, the Benghazi latest news includes a shocker: CIA operatives say they were told to “stand down” when they asked to assist those in the U.S. Embassy under fire.

U.S. officials didn’t just tell the CIA annex workers to stand down once, they told them to stand down twice as American Navy Seals and U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens came under attack.

It’s appalling to think that any U.S. official would refuse to allow other Americans, especially those trained for such combat, to assist government and military Americans in danger overseas. And it bears addressing judicially.

Thankfully a former Navy SEAL named Tyrone Woods, along with two others who were at the CIA annex at the time, chose to disobey those ridiculous orders. Unfortunately, without more military fire power to aid them they were not successful in rescuing Stevens, but they did evacuate others at the consulate and retrieved the body of Sean Smith.

Americans willing to risk their lives in service to their country overseas at consulates and embassies around the world shouldn’t have to worry that their military brethren will be told to “stand down” if an attack takes place. Yet Fox News reports that this is exactly what happened in Benghazi, with a source telling them such orders came from higher ups twice that night.”

As I listened to the news on TV I could not control all the emotions that were hitting me at the same time: A deep sorrow, anger and frustration as I could not contain my tears. I think that perhaps no one is able to express my emotions as clearly as Mr. Glenn Beck did, and I quote: “Today officially is the day that I no longer recognize my country.”
