The killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, in one of the most brazen attacks on a U.S. diplomatic compound in a generation, sparked a security crisis in the North African country, elevated tensions across the Middle East and raised concerns about how well the U.S. can protect its diplomats abroad.
The U.S. responded to the assault by dispatching two Navy destroyers, dozens of Marines, federal investigators and intelligence assets to Libya to protect Americans and hunt the suspected religious extremists who carried out the attack late Tuesday. U.S. officials described the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens as complex and possibly premeditated.
The assault, along with a protest at the American embassy in Cairo, created a crisis atmosphere in Washington just as the presidential campaign is hitting its stretch run and fueled a harsh exchange between President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney.
How did the white house handle the news when it was first learned of the attack on the US Embassy? The U.S. Embassy in Cairo issued the following statement: “We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”
Really we apologize that the US has freedom of speech? obama claims sometimes hurt feelings can lead to terrorist acts, is that why he keeps bragging about how he killed osma bin laden, his solgan is GM Thrives, Osma Died, why does he keep rubbing it in the Islamist face that he killed one of theirs.
The crowd was chanting ” We are Osma’s, obama” over and over as they rushed the compound….
Intelligence is trying to figure out if this had something to do with a movie released about their prophet Muhammad or if it was a reminder of what happen here in America on 9/11.
