How many of us believe the attacks on our embassies were caused by some third rate youtube video? All rubes and tools raise your hands. Not even Aljeezara believes that in the case of the attacks in Libya.
“I think this was al-Qaeda,” President Mohamed al-Magarief told Al Jazeera’s Hoda Abdel-Hamid on Friday, in his first interview with foreign media since the violence three days earlier.
“If you take into account the weapons used like RPGs and other heavy weapons, it proves that it was pre-planned,” he said. “It’s a dirty act of revenge that has nothing to do with religion.”

His comments to Al Jazeera marked the first time his government has openly attributed acts of violence to religious extremists.
Frankly, anyone who believes any of these attacks were motivated by the is a fool or a collaborator.
How about, as the Libyan president sasy, drone strikes that kill al Qaeda leaders and innocent civilians? Of the up to 3171 persons killed by drone strikes since the U.S. began using drones, 2427 were killed under Obama’s regime. Obama has a kill list, which has included Amrican citizens, that he’s never fully explained the criteria for being on the list or the constitutional authority that allows it. CNN says it is almost impossible to believe him. Even lefty Ezra Klein doesn’t buy the video caused this meme.
President Barack Obama has bowed to the Muslim Brotherhood’s demand that the federal government suppress a satirical video of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.
The submission came shortly after White House spokesman Jay Carney publicly disavowed any plans to curb free speech.
“We cannot and will not squelch freedom of expression in this country — it is a foundational principle,” he told reporters at a 11.15 a.m. press conference in the White House.
Of course, Obama and Hillary have never shown themselves to be strong proponents of our constitutional rights of free speech, freedom of religion and the right to bear arms. Fortunately for them, the MSM ignores Obama’s attacks on civil rights that would have had them calling for Bush’s head. CNN has already posted its obligatory “there’s something wrong with Christians” post, My Take: It’s time for Islamophobic evangelicals to choose. Yeah, we have such a huge problem with violent evangelical Christian terrorists in this world.
Consider these comments:
“Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy,” the statement continued. “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
Some U.S. officials spoke to the tension between U.S. support for free speech and what some have described as the film’s “hate speech,” in reacting to the attacks.
“The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others,” U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement.
“Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation,” she said. “But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”
The statements draw into question the level of commitment to freedom of speech as well as belie the administrations lack of respect for Christianity in America. Remember Obama’s bitter clinger comments, Obama’s efforts, via Obamacare and more, to prevent people for acting according to their religious beliefs. Beliefs that have been firmly established and accepted for hundreds, sometimes thousands of years. Even left wing comedians know better than this shit.
I wonder if some day students, and teachers, of history will be, for all the wrong reasons, asking this question:
Why did people support Obama? (He promised people what they wanted. Free health care, wealth redistribution, true equality, stopping the rise of the oceans) The left wing MSM’s covering for Obama is epic and opens the gates wide for more and more losses of our freedom and constitutional rights. When we glibly toss our sides our freedom and rights, nothing good follows.
