Arab Spring… Islamists Bomb US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya

In October 2011 Al-Qaeda or an offshoot group planted its flag on the Benghazi Courthouse. The terror group warned locals:
“Whomever speaks ill of this flag, we will cut out his tongue.”

From the video: According to one Benghazi resident, Islamists driving brand-new SUVs and waving the black al Qaeda flag drive the city’s streets at night shouting, “Islamiya, Islamiya! No East, nor West!”

Then on June 6, 2012 the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya was bombed.
Ahrem reported:

The premises of the US diplomatic mission in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi came under attack during the night but there were no casualties, embassy and security sources said on Wednesday.

“There was an attack late last night on the United States office in Benghazi,” a US embassy official said, adding that only the gate was damaged and that no one was hurt.

He said home-made bomb had been used in the attack on the office, which was set up after the 2011 uprising against Muammar Gaddafi and has been kept open to support the democratic transition.

“The US deplores the attack on its diplomatic mission in Benghazi,” he said, adding that a request had been made to Libyan authorities to step up security around US facilities in the North African nation.

The American official said there was no claim of responsibility.

But a security official in Benghazi said the attack was claimed by the Prisoner Omar Abdelrahman Group, which had left a letter “threatening American interests” in Libya.

There was no official response from the Obama Administration.

    Obama is frantically trying to figure who to bow down to.

  • Jubilant WI resident

    Why are Obama’s allies attacking us?

  • Robodog7

    The Lame Stream Media will blame it on Israel, although they may be Canadians.

  • S Emilie Green

    We’ve got to have an administration – and it ain’t gonna be this one – which meets tit-for-tat all the claims by Muslims that Islam is at war with the West, esp. the Great and Little Satans.

    I believe the Muslims when they say that because I believe the witness of my one eyes. I see that Muslims are killing non-Muslims in the name of Islam WHILE GIVING US THE EXPRESS PROVISIONS FROM THE KORAN JUSTIFYING, IN THEIR MINDS, WHAT AND WHY THEY’RE KILLING.

    But we are their friends! We helped the rebels. Why don’t they like us? Obama must be so upset.

    The seventh-century goathumpers understand one thing: power. Not a lot of that being projected from WTF’s administration. Need people with convictions and guts to take these savages on. We are not safe in the time being……….

    Dear Leader and his administration will find a way to blame it on Bush. Not dear leader’s fault, these are his friends.

    How is the new Libya going to be any different than the old Libya…..?
    We only went there to steal their oil.

    This is why I don’t have much sympathy for Syria.
    I understand that many civilians are being killed but many of those are civilians in name only and given the opportunity they will scream angrily around a burning American flag.
    No matter how much help you give those people in the end they will still hate your guts and try to kill you.

    Look at Egypt.
    Are they going to be better off and good neighbors in the Middle East?

  • mg4us

    Good thing these islamofascists LOVE Obama or no guessing what they could have done. . .
    at least this was just a simple bombing. .

    Guess they were just having a “Blast” for Obama

    After all, Obama said, “They bring a knife we bring a gun”
    which can also applied as “They bring a gun we bring a bomb”

  • squeaky

    just under a year since muammar’s end and you have to wonder if they have any better idea
    of just how much of his arms stash has found its way to al qaeda and related groups.

    There’s something about Islamic gratitude…. Can’t quite put my finger on it.

    OT sort of:

    Meet John Brennan, Obama’s Assassination Czar
    The unprecedented power has even Obama administration officials worried.

    During his NYU speech, Brennan defended the administration’s highly unpopular move to try al-Qaeda operations chief Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in federal court (which the administration eventually backed away from). He claimed that terrorists are the real victims of “political, economic and social forces,” said that Islamic terrorists were not jihadists, referenced “Al-Quds” instead of Jerusalem, and described the 20 percent of former Guantanamo detainees returning to terrorist activities as “not that bad” when compared to ordinary criminal recidivism.

    During a talk at the Nixon Center in May 2010, Brennan said that the administration was looking for ways to build up “moderate elements” of the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah.

    Two weeks later, at a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Brennan defended the Islamic doctrines of jihad as “a holy struggle” and “a legitimate tenet of Islam.”

    These missteps and misstatements by Brennan prompted the Washington Times to editorialize in June 2010 that “President Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser knows very little about terrorism, and that’s scary for America,” and to warn that “Mr. Brennan’s curious views may be part of a larger move by the O Force to redefine terrorism”.

    Charles Krauthammer | On terror, Obama takes the path of least resistance

    A very strange story, a 6,000-word front-page New York Times piece on how, every Tuesday, Barack Obama shuffles “baseball cards” with the pictures and bios of suspected terrorists from around the world and chooses who shall die by drone strike. He even reserves for himself the decision of whether to proceed despite the probability of killing family members or bystanders.

    The article could have been titled “Barack Obama: Drone Warrior.” Great detail on how Obama personally runs the assassination campaign. On-the-record quotes from the highest officials. This was no leak. This was a White House press release.

    Why? To portray Obama as tough guy. And why now? Because in crisis after recent crisis, Obama has looked particularly weak: standing helplessly by as thousands are massacred in Syria; being played by Iran in nuclear negotiations; being treated with contempt by Vladimir Putin, who blocks any action on Syria or Iran and adds personal insult by standing up Obama at the latter’s G-8 and NATO summits.

  • old glazier

    Meanwhile, Obama is on the phone with Iran. Really, really wants that drone back.

  • donh

    Obama is bringing the biblical 10 plagues of Egypt down upon the world….He must be a member of the Golden Dawn cult….>

  • another consequence of “smart diplomacy.” go hillary go!

    remember when the media told us they hated us because of bush.

    Terror Victim’s Family “Resolved to Fight Injustice”

    [Some people might wilt, unable to overcome their grief. The Wultz
    family chose a different path. A federal judge awarded the family
    more than $330 million in damages May 17 in a lawsuit they brought
    against the governments of Iran and Syria for their responsibility in
    financing, training and otherwise supporting the Palestinian Islamic
    Jihad (PIJ).

    Similar claims against Iran have resulted in billions of dollars in damages.
    This is the first judgment of its kind against the Syrian government.

    The two nations, both vulnerable to litigation as State Department-
    designated state sponsors of terrorism, “funneled money through the
    Syrian Defendants to the PIJ in order for the PIJ to carry out terrorist
    attacks,” wrote Royce Lamberth, chief judge of the U.S. District Court
    in Washington, D.C., in his ruling. “The evidence also establishes that
    the safe haven, advice, encouragement, assistance, and facilities
    provided by Syrian Defendants substantially contributed to the PIJ’s
    ability to train suicide bombers.”]

    #12, squeaky,

    Weapons going to the wrong people? Ask Holder. With Fast & Furious shutdown (but not resolved) Holder is simply transferring the program to the obamster’s pals in muslimville.

    Fast & Furious had the goal of undermining the 2nd Amendment. mohammad & furious is designed to justify unilateral disarmament. Sound crazy?

    I no longer put ANYTHING past the marxist-in-chief, especially after the rash of leaks of classified info.

    Why is everyone acting so surprised. The Libyan rebels formed a large percentage of the foreign fighters who fought US troops in Iraq. The military commander of Tripoli Belhadj fought with the Taliban & personally recruited jihadis. There has been torture, extra judicial killings and extreme cruelty from these thugs. They were power hungry and could care less about democracy. Obama’s intervention has given Al Qaeeda control of Libya. He claims to fight them in Afghanistian but actually fights for them in Libya.
