Congressman Darrell Issa is on Fox News right now saying that US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens’ death on September 11, 2012 is a huge loss – that he was one of those envoys who got out among the people, speaking fluent Arabic, and often was approachable at levels most Ambassadors never reach. According to reports, Smith was trying to evacuate the Embassy and was hit with an RPG. Obama is sending in the Marines…literally.
Sean Smith is a foreign service information management officer. The identities of two other American dead have not been released.
“Sean Smith was a husband and a father of two, who joined the Department ten years ago,” Clinton said in a statement. “Like Chris, Sean was one of our best. Prior to arriving in Benghazi, he served in Baghdad, Pretoria, Montreal, and most recently The Hague.”
This minute Hillary Clinton is on Fox saying these deaths should shock the conscience of all peoples of “all faiths” around the world. Well, Hill has been in Washington for a very long time now, and she knows Muslims killing Americans is shocking to few.
Hillary is asking herself how this could happen in a country we helped liberate and save from destruction. She thinks it is “confounding.” It’s simple – the Koran is their guide.
In talking about how those killed in foreign service are memorialized, she said we will now have new heroes to mourn. My vote is for fewer Muslims and no aide money to Islamic countries.
Clinton says this violence was by a small and savage band of Libyans, that across the country Libyans have welcomed Americans, and at the Embassy, Libyans stood and fought alongside Americans. Some of those Libyan defenders were wounded. Some carried Ambassador Stevens to the hospital. What Hillary does not say, is that this happens over and over and there is no way, no way to know who we can trust.
Clinton is talking about religious tolerance, and ignores the task Muslims the world over are bound to: dominating infidels in one way or the other, conversion, submission or death. I’m wishing I had a way to make my own small, savage attack on a government that has no similarities to “faith” or “religion.” All I have is my computer.
So we’re sending in the Marines because they are responsible for the conditions inside our Embassies, but not outside our Embassies, so as often is the case, today the Marines have no real power.
