Figures. Obama White House Immediately Calls US Embassy Blast in Turkey an “Act of Terror”

Two weeks after the Benghazi massacre, during his Univision interview, Barack Obama was still not sure if it was a terrorist attack.

The Obama administration still refuses to call the Ft. Hood massacre a terrorist attack.

But, today the Obama White House immediately said the suicide bombing in Ankara was a terrorist attack.
Jammie Wearing Fool reported:

The suicide attack carried out at the U.S. Embassy in Ankara was “clearly an act of terror,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Friday.

“A suicide bombing in the perimeter of an embassy is by definition an act of terror, a terrorist attack,” Carney told reporters at Friday’s daily briefing.

It’s an Obama world.

    Who cares? Or as another one of our great leaders has stated, and I’ll quote, what difference does it make at this point?

    Conservative republicans…. … majoring in the minors. And losing elections doing so.

    It has to call this action what it is – even the stone deaf and ever inept White Red House can think of another way to twist a story about some individual (a truly hated term to Washington’s Mandarins) commits suicide by explosiion.

    Now if the same individual commited suicide by setting himself on fire, the Red House could easily spin it and blame ‘Republican’s.

    No one has been able to answer that one.

    Pretty catchy phrase too. I think it has legs. Thank you Hillary for sticking it to the “rooting for America to fail” republicans.

    And I thought the Benghazi was going to a big fat nothingburger. Instead it blew up in republican’s faces badly.

    Thanks guys.

    Now that The Won has managed his re-election with the help of copious and outrageous lying and also lots of help from the Sellout Media in ignoring Obama’s flagrant lies and corruption, maybe The Won can afford occasional spasms of honesty.

    He occasional opportunistic honesty is as brazen as his lies and corruption.

    Nonsense. Hillary passed on what she was told by intelligence. And they later corrected it to say that likely wasn’t the case.

    “So then. “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Whether it was a riot or someone walking down the street who decided to attack?

    What makes the difference at this point?

    what a load of crap, and you know it..

    fact is, that was a sign for the USS Lincoln’s MISSION ACCOMPLISHED,
    not only that. but our believed coalition of troops took Saddam and his
    minions down and out in approx 3 weeks..

    May 1, 2003

    Bush makes historic speech aboard warship

    [In this battle, we have fought for the cause of liberty and for the
    peace of the world. Our nation and our coalition are proud of this
    accomplishment, yet it is you, the members of the United States
    military, who achieved it. Your courage, your willingness to face
    danger for your country and for each other made this day possible.

    Because of you our nation is more secure. Because
    of you the tyrant has fallen and Iraq is free.

    Operation Iraqi Freedom was carried out with a combination of
    precision and speed and boldness the enemy did not expect and
    the world had not seen before.

    [..]

    We have difficult work to do in Iraq. We’re bringing order to parts
    of that country that remain dangerous. We’re pursuing and finding
    leaders of the old regime who will be held to account for their crimes.
    We’ve begun the search for hidden chemical and biological weapons,
    and already know of hundreds of sites that will be investigated.

    We are helping to rebuild Iraq where the dictator built
    palaces for himself instead of hospitals and schools.

    And we will stand with the new leaders of Iraq as they
    establish a government of, by and for the Iraqi people.

    The transition from dictatorship to democracy will take time, but it
    is worth every effort. Our coalition will stay until our work is done
    and then we will leave and we will leave behind a free Iraq.

    The battle of Iraq is one victory in a war on terror that
    began on September the 11th, 2001 and still goes on.]

    “I’ve never said that troops should be withdrawn. What I’ve said
    is, is that we’ve got to make sure that we secure and execute the
    rebuilding and reconstruction process effectively and properly, and
    I don’t think we should have an artificial deadline when to do that.”

    Senator Barack Obama (Democrat, Illinois)
    During an interview on “Chicago Tonight” with Elizabeth Brackett
    April 5, 2004

    Obama: Don’t stay in Iraq over genocide

    [Obama said the answer to Iraq — and
    other civil conflicts — lies in diplomacy.

    “When you have civil conflict like this, military efforts and protective forces can play an important role, especially if they’re under an international mandate as opposed to simply a U.S. mandate. But you can’t solve the underlying problem at the end of a barrel of a gun,” he said. “There’s got to be a deliberate and constant diplomatic effort to get the various factions to recognize that they are better off arriving at a peaceful resolution of their conflicts.”]

    so Barry, hows that “diplomacy” (kissing enemy butt at home and abroad)
    working out for US?? Stevens?? Woods?? Doherty?? Smith?? Bueller?? /s/

    He can call this a terror attack because the press is calling this clown a Marxist instead of a Muslim. What a joke. Our Pres belongs in both demographics, or at least is an apologist for them.

    unless you’re just playing games (my bet)

    just a sample re:

    September 11/12, 2012

    US ambassador killed in ‘co-ordinated al Qaeda revenge
    attack by terrorists who used Libyan Mohammed movie
    protest as cover’

    [Officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they
    were not authorized to publicly discuss troop movements.

    It is believed that the attack, which occurred on the 11th
    anniversary of the September 11 attacks, was a planned
    ambush carried out by terrorists using a pro-Islam protest
    as cover.]

    September 13, 2012

    Benghazi Attack Revenge for Drone Kill of Abu Yahya al-Libi
    aka Mohammed Hassan Qaed: WH State Had 48 Hrs Warning

    [There is growing belief that the attack was in revenge for the killing
    in a drone strike in Pakistan of Mohammed Hassan Qaed, an al-Qa’ida
    operative who was, as his nom-de guerre Abu Yahya al-Libi suggests,
    from Libya, and timed for the anniversary of the 11 September attacks.]

    Libya’s president says embassy attack planned by al-Qaeda

    The attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans
    and ten Libyans was the work of “experienced masterminds” that had
    been planned well in advance, “I think this was al-Qaeda,” Mohamed
    al-Magarief, the Libyan president, said to Al Jazeera in an interview
    with Hoda Abdel-Hamid.

    September 14, 2012

    Obama administration warned of possible
    attacks, but failed to take precautions

    [Sources close to U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration revealed that White House officials apparently received warnings that there were threats made to attack as many as seven U.S. missions in the Middle East, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as early as September 4. Sources also revealed that additional warnings were received a few days later, with similar information, but that all of the warnings were largely ignored by the administration. Normally when such warnings are received by the administration, the threat level is raised at U.S. installations around the world. At this point, there is no evidence that the Obama administration communicated the warnings with Consular officials in Libya or Egypt in advance of attacks that took place Monday in Benghazi, Libya and Cairo, Egypt, leaving the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead, with eight others wounded, including some U.S. military personnel.]

    Suicide bomber kills guard at U.S. embassy in Turkey

    [Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said the bomber was a member of the
    Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C), a far-left group
    which is virulently anti-U.S. and anti-NATO and is listed as a terrorist
    organisation by Washington.]

    Turkish attack a reminder of Cold War dynamics

    [DHKP-C has a relationship with the Turkish Kurdish separatist group PKK,
    which is also close to the Syrian government. About one-third of the PKK’s
    fighters are said to be Syrian, according to regional analysts.]

    Suicide bombing at U.S. Embassy in Turkey kills Turkish guard

    [Turkey, a key NATO ally, blamed the assault on a left-wing militant group
    with roots in the Marxist movements of the 1970s and a history of attacks
    on Turkish and American security targets.

    [There was no immediate indication of a link either to al-Qaeda or to
    militants in neighboring Syria. But analysts said the group identified
    by Turkish officials, the outlawed Revolutionary People’s Liberation
    Party-Front, or DHKP/C, has received protection and help from within
    Syria.]
