OBAMA APOLOGIZES AS TWO EMBASSIES ATTACKED AND AMBASSADOR MURDERED
The second picture is from 1993 in what has become known as the Black Hawk down incident when our soldiers were dragged through the streets of Mogadishu after being shot down in a Black Hawk helicopter during military action which by Presidential order under Bill Clinton were not given proper support for the job they were ordered to perform.
The Iran Hostage Crisis was the direct result of a weak foreign policy in the Middle East during the Carter Presidency that abandoned long standing allies who may not have been the best leaders in their countries like the Shah of Iran but unlike Islamic radicals favored western ideas and supported The United States. Carter hung the Shah out to dry and Ayatollah Khomeini stepped in the void left by the abdication of the Shah bringing Islamic radicals into power in Iran and their first act was to take advantage of Carter's weak policy and take 52 hostages and the American Embassy.
In 1993 Bill Clinton ordered American troops to Somalia as a, "police, " action against war lords who were starving their people. From the beginning the military action was micromanaged by The White House with Presidential orders preventing troops from using necessary numbers and equipment to preform their duty in Mogadishu, Somalia. During the Black Hawk Down incident a Black Hawk helicopter was shot down and as the survivors ran out of ammunition mobs of Somalians killed our soldiers and dragged their bodies through the streets. Clinton would not allow support troops to come to the aid of the downed helicopter.
This one incident was mentioned by Osama bin Laden as the catalyst that encouraged him to plan his Jihad against The United States which eventually brought terrorism to our shores in the devastating attacks of 9/11. The Iran Hostage Crisis, Black Hawk Down and 9/11 were the result of weak foreign policy Presidents, Carter and Clinton who even after Black Hawk down refused six times to take out bin Laden when he was offered on a silver platter by the Sudan in the years after the first World Trade Center attack.
Now we have Barack Obama who claims to be a great foreign policy President. Yet we have seen incident after incident of his foreign policy being apologies for American principles, support of radical Muslim groups like The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt that was behind the invasion of our Embassy on Tuesday and are also allying with Iran calling Israel their enemy and seeking the total destruction of the Jewish State our strongest and most staunch ally.
The Muslim Brotherhood is also moving into the void in Libya after the demise of Qaddafi bringing with them Islamic radicalism that directly brought the murder of Ambassador Stevens and seeing his body dragged through the streets. Barack Obama has appeased Islamic radicals throughout his Presidency. He has sided with Islamic forces against Israel consistently even shunning a request by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a meeting about the Iran nuclear threat during a visit to The United States next week. Obama is choosing to campaign in Ohio and make an appearance on Letterman over a meeting with the leader of our greatest ally.
Later this month during a meeting at The United Nations Obama is having a one on one in support of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi who was The Muslim Brotherhood candidate and whose group invaded our Embassy in Egypt on Tuesday and ripped up our flag. He throws our ally Netanyahu under the bus and embraces the group that calls for the end of Israel and invades our Embassy.
Is this the foreign policy weakness we want for the next four years? Do we want a repeat of the disasters of Carter and Clinton foreign policy? Do we want a President who seeks first to apologize for American principles which was his first reaction to the invasion of our Egyptian Embassy? Do we want a President who reacts to the murder of an Ambassador ONLY after Mitt Romney expressed his outrage over the attack of our Consulate in Libya? Obama did not make any statement about the attack until a day after it took place but had plenty of time to attend hours of fund raiser events in Las Vegas.
Another four years of appeasement, apologies and weakening of American strength will make us much more vulnerable than Obama has already made us and lead to the distinct possibility of further attacks against US interests, the killing of our Diplomats and citizens and possibly another 9/11 type attack. Can we let this weakness continue? NO, November 6th is less than two months away and we must remove this weakness from office to restore American strength, respect and pride both at home and throughout the world.
