U.S. Ambassador Murdered, Obama "Condemns" Attacks

So it's come to this. The U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car by Muslim militants who are offended by a U.S.-made film insulting the prophet Mohammad. O came out with a statement, "strongly condemning" the attacks. Well, that's going to stop these radical Muslims right in their tracks, isn't it. They must be shaking in their boots at this schtrong statement from the United States.

Earlier in the day, when the U.S. embassy in Cairo was attacked by a radical mob, O's administration, including Hillary Clinton, issued an apology: "We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims." Never mind, everyone, that the attack came on 9/11.

Well, O and Hillary, that apology strategy worked really well for you.

Meanwhile, O has snubbed Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that his schedule is too full to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister, while on the same day it's announced that he will appear on the Letterman show.

Update. Clinton's statements are already being scrubbed from the internet as O's administration attempts to distance themselves from the apology. Politico has come out saying that O's administration "disavows" the Cairo apology. Do they also disavow their Secretary of State?

Breitbart's Big Journalism has a post about the coverage of these events by the New York Times: New York Times Buries Attacks; Joins Obama in Capitulating to Mob, Attacking Romney. Where's the headline about the American ambassador to Libya being killed? Nowhere.

The post, written by Joel B Pollack, says that the real reason for outrage at the NYT is because "events have placed the Obama administration's foreign policy of appeasement in a deservedly bad light." The leftist media will continue to drag O over the finish line of this election in any way they can. Ignore the murder of an American ambassador? Check.

Here's another post at Breitbart's Big Government: Obama Camp Condemns Romney Before Condemning Attacks in Egypt, Libya. "If only the Obama campaign could find half the outrage they saved for Romney to level at the murderers."
