Benghazi: Osama’s Revenge on Obama
“Talk about chickens coming home to roost. Talk about the Mother of All Fiascos. It’s the
revenge of Osama bin Laden from the bottom of the ocean, and the message is plain: al-Qaeda is very much alive, and America is a paper tiger.
The Middle East is beginning to fall apart — Iran just sent a spy drone over Israel’s sensitive defense installations, and the IDF
waited hours to react; Turkey forced down a Syrian arms plane, and al-Qaeda’s Al Zawahiri openly assaulted the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi in a six-hour attack,
working through al-Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM), while the glorious Libyan friends did nothing as our ambassador was being raped and murdered. The guards called for
help, and nobody responded. A police car fled the scene. The other ten cop cars requested by the consulate never showed up. “
“Take the RQ-170 Sentinel spy drone that went down in Iran in December 2011. The U.S. chose
neither to attempt to retrieve it nor to bomb the wreckage. Why? Who knows? But it seems that,as in the case of the administration’s silence
when Iranians hit the streets in protest during the spring of 2009, Obama was worried about provoking an Iranian response. Although Iran brags that it will reverse-engineer the drone, it is
not likely to actually do so.
However, it will very probably sell off key components to the Chinese
and the Russians, who will duplicate it or at least find far more effective ways to neutralize its use. “
