The ‘Other’ Terrorist Attack
On September 14th, Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama received the bodies of four American dead from the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack. They allowed this somber moment to be treated as a photo-op (another first for an American President). All the while they were telling the world that this was not a terrorist attack but a spontaneous response to a virtually unknown youtube video. Th
Lt. Colonel Christopher ‘Otis’ Raible, commander of Marine Attack Squadron 211 based in Yuma, left behind his wife, Donella, and their three children, ages 11, 9 and 2.Sgt. Bradley W. Atwell, 27, is survived by his wife, Danielle Atwell.
May God have mercy on this sorry excuse for a Commander in Chief and the lap-dog media that surrounds him with a mantle of protection. And may that mercy only slightly temper the justice that darkness deserves.
Here’s Mark Steyn’s take on it from his latest column:
“Even more extraordinary, on Sept. 14, fewer than two dozen inbred, illiterate goatherds pulled off the biggest single destruction of U.S. airpower since the Tet Offensive in 1968, breaking into Camp Bastion (an unfortunate choice of name) in Afghanistan, killing Lieutenant-Colonel Christopher Raible, and blowing up a squadron’s worth of Harriers. And, even though it was the third international humiliation for the United States in as many days, it didn’t even make the papers. Because the court eunuchs at the media are too busy drooling over Obama’s appearance as what he calls “eye candy” on the couch between Barbara and Whoopi.
Eye candy is in the eye of the beholder. And to the baying mob from Tunis to Jakarta those dead Americans and al-Qaida flags over U.S. embassies and an entire USMC air squadron reduced to charred ruins are a veritable Willie Wonka production line of eye candy. To the president, they’re just “bumps in the road” to the sunlit uplands of “the future.”
