On 9-11… The Obama Administration Apologizes to Radical Islamists and Attacks Our Constitutional Rights

After the US Embassy in Egypt was attacked today, the Obama Administration apologized to the Islamists and attacked the US Constitution.

History Repeats Itself–

Tehran 1979 – Cairo 2012

The Obama State Department apologized to the Islamists today after they stormed the US Embassy in Cairo.
Here’s the press release:

U.S. Embassy Condemns Religious Incitement
September 11, 2012

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Later, the White House threw the Egyptian Embassy under the bus.

“Remember your black day September 11”

People stand around a drawing that says “Remember your black day 11 September” during a protest against what they said was a film being produced in the United States that was insulting to the Prophet Mohammad, in front of the U.S. embassy in Cairo September 11, 2012. (Reuters)

    I can’t take these Apologies, it is unbecoming of a President of America to continue this weak posturing to those who wish us dead. It is sick unbecoming of a leader and the only hope for a rescue to this posturing and bowing is to stop it now, with our vote.

    Ole Bammy tried to walk it back after Romney’s statement. Don’t kid yourself. Bammy may try to deny his involvement but that apology has his and Billiary’s fingerprints all over it.

    From “Beltway Confidential” Romney’s statement on these attacks:

    Late Tuesday, after eschewing hard-edged political statements in observance of the 9/11 anniversary, Romney released a statement on the violence. “I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi,” Romney said. “It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

    Obama’s heart is with our enemies.

    Remember his speech in Cairo? Look at Egypt now.

    Obama and Hillary Clinton had their fingers in the Egyptian “Arab Spring”, Helped train young people in social networking. Their groundwork made the Muslim Brotherhood’s takeover of the government possible.

    Truthfully, Obama should be impeached and Hillary Clinton should be arrested for crimes against humanity.

  • So, if any one person out of over 300 million in the US, makes a remark insulting to the prophet, they are justified in shooting our diplomatic personnel and trashing our embassies? Got it.

    An act of war on 9/11 and BO apologizes to the attackers. You’re right! You can’t make this stuff up. The only question now is: How low did he bow when he presented our apology?

  • While our Cairo embassy is under attack, the Benghazi consulate is set ablaze, one American embassy staffer is killed and another wounded, and the nation pauses to remember the Muslim attacks of 9/11 Barack Obama sent video greetings to the Arab Forum for Asset Recovery. The date on the page is 9/12, but the url clearly shows 9/11 and the date of this comment is 9/11. Obama has shown no respect or regard for Americans today, but offers apologies to Muslims, the enemy.

    #12 (Proof), he bowed so low he can never be mistaken for an American again.

    Obama as always apologizing for America, because he hearts the Islamic Fascists that hate the freedoms that our Constitution guarantees.

Get the government out of our lives and put our finacial house in order.. End the forgien owned Federal Reserve Bank and the their collection agency, the IRS.. Vote for freedom.. Vote for peace..

    on 9/11, Barack Obama was tested with terrorist attacks to the Libyan American embassy, as well as an assault on our Egyptian embassy, and an appeal from our ally Isreal.

    and Barack Obama failed. He was a no-show. Our AWOL President.

  • You’d almost think Hussein bin Obama is a Muslim. Almost.

    ‘Hey Barack:

    It was you who told an Islamic dinner – “I am one of you.”

    It was you who on ABC News referenced – “My Muslim faith.”

    It was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.

    It was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict -”I will stand with the Muslims.”

    It was you who assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”

    It was you who bowed in submission before the Saudi king.

    It was you who sat for 20yrs in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.

    It was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.

    It was you who purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.

    It was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly referring to the HOLY Quran.

    It was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America.

    It was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.

    It was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the WH.

    It was you who ordered both Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested that the mosques you have visited adjust their decor.

    It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

    It was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.’…

    Governor Palin weighed in via Facebook:

    Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs. In Cairo, they scaled the walls of our embassy, destroyed our flag, and replaced it with a black Islamic banner. In Benghazi, the armed gunmen set fire to our consulate and killed an American staff member. The Islamic radicals claim that these attacks are in protest to some film criticizing Islam. In response to this, the U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement that was so outrageous many of us thought it must be a satire. The embassy actually apologized to the violent mob attacking us, and it even went so far as to chastise those who use free speech to “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” (Funny, the current administration has no problem hurting the “religious feelings” of Catholics.)

    But where is the president’s statement about this? These countries represent his much touted “Arab Spring.” How’s that Arab Spring working out for us now? Have we received an apology yet from our “friends” in the Muslim Brotherhood for the assault on our embassy?

    It’s about time our president stood up for America and condemned these Islamic extremists. I realize there must be a lot on his mind these days – what with our economy’s abysmal jobless numbers and Moody’s new warning about yet another downgrade to our nation’s credit rating due to the current administration’s failure to come up with a credible deficit reduction plan. And, of course, he has a busy schedule – with all those rounds of golf, softball interviews with the “Pimp with the Limp,” and fundraising dinners with his corporate cronies. But our nation’s security should be of utmost importance to our Commander-in-chief. America can’t afford any more “leading from behind” in such a dangerous world. We already know that President Obama likes to “speak softly” to our enemies. If he doesn’t have a “big stick” to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one.

    Q: Where is ROMNEY?
    A: Issuing paper press releases instead of coming out making a bold statement at a press conference.

    It’s time for conservatives to quit carrying Romney’s water and whining about Obama in our echo chambers. We need to shift the debate from Obama’s failures and bad policies to what Romney will offer as an alternative. To do that we need to start DEMANDING that ROMNEY step it up when he is handed these golden opportunities. While all true, these posts about what a crappy president Obama is serve no purpose except to preach to the choir.

    Where is Romney’s press conference tying this major foreign policy crisis to Obama’s pro-Islamist worldview? Instead, we are treated to a carefully worded vanilla “statement”. Romney is LOSING because of his pathetic duck-and-cover campaign strategy, not because anything Obama has or hasn’t done. He needs to step his game up and WE need to start demanding he do so. But alas, he’s running a McCain-type campaign because he has so many of McCain’s advisers working for him, so I’m hearing. I’m starting to wonder – does this guy even really want to be President?

    This story is wrong. The press release from the US Embassy in Cairo was released BEFORE (not after) there was any violence in Egypt and the murders in Libya. This is directly contrary to Jim’s first sentence of this article and what Mitt Romney has criticized…

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/09/romney-rips-obamas-disgraceful-response/?cat_orig=world

And now we have our American soldiers over seas risking their lives, and donating money we don’t have to construct a government for another country who kills innocent people because they were offended by a video some nobody-so-called-christian decided to make an post on you tube.

    Looks like we, as Americans, can start a dialogue by apologizing for our government. Corporate greed. Our arrogance. Into thinking we could fool the world by killing our own as a means to gain a foothold in the Middle East. Steal oil. Out spend every other program in the world so a handful of people could reap the benefits. What a disgusting legacy these people have left. I’m ashamed to be an American. We framed an entire culture so we could murder and steal and claim legitimacy as a global power. What a joke! The people envolved are all jokes. Most of the world knows we’re a joke. That we continually use this tactic as a means to gain the moral upper ground to do whatever we want. And now to dismantle our bill of rights! This is what happens when we become so passive and trust everything our stupid media tells us. Our media which by the way is owned by all the same corporations that have their hands in the cookie jar called uncontrolled defense spending. Please have the sense to follow the money and it all becomes very clear.
