Stupidity in charge
When we elect liberals and put them in charge, we end up with stupidity. We end up with amazing amounts of idiocy. Unfortunately that idiocy may cost lives.
What has happened?
From the Washington Free Beacon:
U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.
Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit U.S. Marine guards to carry live ammunition,” according to multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blogs spotted by Nightwatch. “She neutralized any U.S. military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.”
U.S. officials have yet to confirm or comment on the reports. Time magazine’s Battleland blog reported Thursday “Senior U.S. officials late Wednesday declined to discuss in detail the security at either Cairo or Benghazi, so answers may be slow in coming.”
If true, the reports indicate that Patterson shirked her obligation to protect U.S. interests, Nightwatch states.
“She did not defend U.S. sovereign territory and betrayed her oath of office,” the report states. “She neutered the Marines posted to defend the embassy, trusting the Egyptians over the Marines.”
While Marines are typically relied on to defend U.S. territory abroad, such as embassies, these reports indicate that the Obama administration was relying on Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood-backed government to ensure American security, a move observers are questioning as violence in Cairo continues to rage.
What the hell?
Our Marines are ordered to be disarmed?
Obama has ordered fifty more Marines to Libya. What for? If they are not going to be allowed to carry live ammunition, why are they being sent?
Does Obama want more dead Americans or does he want to enjoy the same experience Jimmy Carter had as Americans are held hostage and marched through the streets.
Mitt Romney has never been my first choice to be President but he is acting like the President. Obama is acting like an America hating community organizer.
Americans have paid the price for this. Does anyone believe the Egyptians would have allowed this attack on our embassy if they feared Obama? Do you think the Islamists would have killed our Ambassador if they were afraid of America?
The simple fact is Obama is dangerous for America. There are three words that we must all repeat. OMG. Obama must go.
Romney may not be perfect but he will be infinitely better than Obama.
Oh, and I am willing to bet he will tell our Marines they had damn well better be carrying life ammo.
