The US Ambassador to Libya and three other diplomats were killed last night during a mob attack on the embassy in Benghazi. The embassy in Cairo was also attacked. Both riots were over 9/11 and a stupid amateurish movie trailer produced by an Israeli Jew living in the US who holds the subtle, thoughtful position that “Islam is a cancer”. The movie portrays Mohammed as a philanderer who approved of child sexual abuse.
Before any of the violence occurred in Cairo or Benghazi, the US embassy in Cairo issued a statement condemning the film saying, in part, “we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions”. After the attack, the Obama Administration issued a statement condemning the attacks. Here’s the GOP response:
That tweet was after the Romney campaign issued a statement saying that the Obama Administration’s first response was to “sympathize with the attackers”. The statement also criticized the Cairo embassy’s efforts before the riots to defuse the crisis by using Twitter to emphasize the statement.
These assholes just don’t care about the consequences of the lies they tell, if they think it will move Romney in the polls. And, of course, the MSM is going to give them a big old pass. Here’s the Times:
Apparently unaware of the timing of the first embassy statement, the Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, put out a statement just before midnight Tuesday […]
“Apparently unaware” my ass.
