Clueless! Clueless! Clueless!

President Obama on Univision, when asked about whether or not the attack on the Libyan consulate was a terrorist attack:
We're still doing an investigation...What we do know is that the natural protests that arose over the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they could also directly harm U.S. interests.
Gah! The protests weren't "natural" at all! The YouTube video that supposedly sparked these "natural" protests was uploaded in July, not September, not even August, but July, more than two months before the protests occurred. There was no sudden coalescence of Muslim YouTube viewers throughout the Middle East on September 10th and 11th that magically morphed into near-simultaneous protests at various U.S. missions.

And the attack in Libya occurred at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, not at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli. Why? Because--quite obviously--the people behind the attack knew Chris Stevens would be in Benghazi on that day, not in Tripoli. Which means--again, quite obviously--that the attack was planned in advance and Stevens was the target.

The other protests were obviously orchestrated, as well. Did the video play a role? Sure. Radical Muslim leaders used it--and likely were behind the dubbing of the video into Arabic--to trick people into joining these protests; knowingly trick them most definitely, because these leaders knew full well that the video meant nothing, that no one cared about it, that it had no influence or support in the United States, whatsoever.

As President, Obama should have the guts to speak the plain truth here, to note the cynical usage of this nothing film by Muslim leaders eager to inflame the ever-present anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism that is constantly drilled into the heads of typical Muslims throughout the Middle East--really, throughout the world--by these same leaders. The promulgation of such propaganda is well-documented in places like Egypt and Palestine, of course, but it extends much, much farther, as these protests made clear. Even in places like Australia, this hateful ideology championed by radical Muslim clerics and others has become far too common, as this picture from protests in this latter nation makes clear:


Yet Obama continues to accept an idiotic narrative, wherein the protests came naturally from the people in these nations, at large. To what end? So he can show faux-compassion after the fact by joining in the pointless condemnation of this nothing film? Apparently so.

Note only does this make him--and by association, the entire nation--look weak, it makes him look stupid. Perhaps even irretrievably so.

Cheers, all.
