“We have spent the last 36 hours watching the mainstream press try to play a gotcha game with Governor Mitt Romney over his statements on the recent attacks in Libya, Yemen and Egypt. The attention should be focused on the Obama Administration and it’s actions — or inactions — which may have led to these attacks on American sites.
This Administration’s policies regarding the so-called “Arab Spring” have been a disaster. Yes, a disaster.
Publicly calling for the ousting of President Mubarak in Egypt , a USA ally , knowing fully well the repercussions of guessing wrong — as this Administration did — is major problem in the region and will haunt us and our ally Israel for years to come. And while we understand the policies of training security personnel in places like Libya, as advocated by Senator McCain and others, it is not acceptable that demonstrators gather for hours in these places violently shouting epithets against the United States in front of our embassies and, worse, that their government forces which we financially support are nowhere to be found.
An apology is frankly not enough.
While certain leaders say one thing to our Secretary of State and our President they continue to operate at home with a wink toward thug terrorists and without a significant effort to track them down and eradicate their threats. Failure to timely summon their security forces while trouble was brewing for hours, and eventually causing the deaths of American patriots, is unforgivable. Where is the outrage Mr. President? Where is the outrage mainstream media?
Governor Mitt Romney rightfully reacted to an official statement from our embassy in Egypt which was not only wrong in its content but also sent at a critical time in the conflict. They should never have sent a pacifist message to those threatening the lives of our citizens and he was absolutely right to call the President out on it. Let’s take the President to task about our unconditional assistance to foreign governments in the Middle East and his lack of leadership in insisting they track down known terrorist cells in Yemen, Lybia and elsewhere. It is time to ask some hard questions about our current role in Syria and the rest of the region.”
