Just this past weekend we heard that dozens of US embassy closings and other official United States facilities in Muslim countries shut down due to some sort of threat of an Al Qaeda imminent attack. How could this be? How is it that Al Qaeda, the group that Barack Obama stated many times during his re-election campaign were on the run and nearly wiped out, have now, just some 12 months or so later, bloomed into a huge threat that is not isolated but now encompasses nearly the entire Middle East? Obama did state that Al Qaeda was on “a path to defeat” just this past May, and yet it seems they are now powerful enough to cause the closing of scores of U.S. facilities in the very places Obama had stated they were on the run in! Just how can that be? Could that be because Obama is weak? Could this be because Obama has not captured those affiliated with Benghazi? Is this due to Obama not knowing what to do except “campaign”?
We do not have to go into the way back machine, you know way back to August last year or maybe even September 11, 2012 when Benghazi was in flames and Obama was telling everyone to look the other way, nothing going on here! Does anyone remember how Obama came out and lied by proclaiming for weeks that the attack on Benghazi was due to a video that was only known to the Obama staff at the time he first stated that lie? Why did Obama come out with such a lie and then perpetuate it before the United Nations, while nearly everyone at the United Nations knew it was a lie? Obama has now shown the world that he is also a huge coward by shutting down everything to make sure he has no new Benghazi! However, does this help the United States? No it does not, as a matter of fact it just makes things worse because now the terrorists know what Obama will do if they just send a message out that they will attack! This makes the Obama Administration look like a bunch of cowards by running and hiding when terrorist make a threat!
Now let us go to a part of a speech in May of this year by Obama where he says we have decimated or weakened Al Qaeda.
“After the death of Osama bin Laden and his top lieutenants, al Qaeda has been decimated, scattered across the North Africa and the Middle East and able to launch only small-scale attacks,” Mr. Obama told an audience gathered at the National Defense University in Washington.
Yet this week the very same man that made this statement shut down dozens of United States embassies due to the “chatter” of Al Qaeda and this seems to show they are even more inflamed than before. But wait, we must be wrong here because Obama said that Al Qaeda was on the run, they were nearly decimated, right? We do not have to send drones to kill them anymore because they do not have enough of them to harm us is what Barack Obama told us. Yet, we see a number of official United States posts being shut down and United States Citizens told not to travel due to threats from Al Qaeda, but this is not the worst yet.
Obama went on to state,
“America is at a crossroads,” he said. “We must define the nature and scope of this struggle, or else it will define us, mindful of James Madison’s warning that ‘no nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”
Ms. Susan Crabtree of The Washington Times stated it best on May 23, 2013 just one day after Obama made the statements above. “In making his case, the president gave a new description for the state of al Qaeda,” she wrote. “He said the ‘core of al Qaeda in Pakistan and Afghanistan is on a path to defeat.'”
“On the campaign trail last year, he repeatedly boasted that all of “al Qaeda was on the run” and during a fundraiser after the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, declared that “al Qaeda is on its heels.”
Mr. Obama also broadly ruled out the possibility of al Qaeda having a direct role in the Benghazi terrorist attack as well as the Boston Marathon bombings, which killed three and injured more than 260 others.
He said al Qaeda’s “remaining operatives spend more time thinking about their own safety than plotting against us. They did not direct the attacks in Benghazi or Boston. They have not carried out a successful attack on our homeland since 9/11.”
The president shifted the conversation back to foreign policy as he faces burgeoning scandals at home over IRS scrutiny of conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, and over his Justice Department’s decision to subpoena phone records from journalists at The Associated Press.”
Now that is a lot of accusations that Ms. Crabtree makes, yet it is all true and since Benghazi, where we lost the lives of 4 men, our nation has done nothing, let us repeat that, done nothing, to capture or even find those connected with Benghazi. It is due to this lack of resolve that the Al Qaeda elements have grown strong again! They laughed at Obama while drinking coffee at a beautiful hotel! When a news reporter can find one of those who boasted that he was one of those whom helped kill the 4 men while the Justice Department seems to have trouble finding its way to the bathroom, we must not wonder too long as to why Al Qaeda has grown! The FBI has failed in its mission to capture or even find these criminals yet a normal news reporter not only finds them, but also holds a press conference with them.
Obama would be the first one to yell, “Well we could not get the FBI on scene for weeks,” but that in and of itself would be yet another lie told by the great liar-in-Chief, because it was due to the explanation given by the Obama Administration that the leader of Libya would not allow the FBI into his country! He was so mad at the United States for telling such a lie about why the attack happened, especially since the night of the attack he declared it to be a “terrorist attack.”
However, all one has to do is realize that Obama could not make such a statement during his campaign or he would lose. So, rather than lose an election, Obama would sacrifice the lives of 4 brave men and go off to a political fund raiser before any facts of the terrorist attack on Benghazi came in! No wonder Al Qaeda is now so brave to make open statements about what they would do, they are now the “bully” on the block and Obama is the wimpy kid! Today Russia laughs at our nation. Yet, just 5 years ago they respected us. Today Al Qaeda lauds their intents at us, yet 5 years ago they were truly on the run. Now just think of what our nation has become during the last 5 years and then maybe one could see just where the problem lies. Many parts of the world now consider the United States to be nothing more than a “bully” and a coward. Does that ring a bell? Does that sound similar to what Obama said in his “apology” tour through the areas that he now has to shut down? If anyone does not see that Obama is dragging the United States to levels not seen before, they are blinded by Obama’s lies and cowardice. Just look at how many nations are not just shoving the finger at us, but laughing at us while they do that!Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com on Instagram.
