In just several days the dangerous ineptitude of U.S. foreign policy has been fully exposed. But instead of reporting this meltdown, the media use it to further hurt the candidate they oppose.
In his weekly address to the nation last week commemorating the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, President Obama claimed that “we’ve strengthened our alliances while improving our security here at home.” He boasted that more than 3-1/2 years into his presidency, “our country is stronger, safer and more respected in the world.”
Those assertions would be fodder for the most blistering attacks from the mainstream media if this president were a conservative Republican instead of the furthest-to-the-left Democrat ever to sit in the Oval Office.
Less than a week after making such claims, the U.S. State Department had placed itself in an all-out crisis posture few Americans can ever remember happening before as mob attacks on U.S. embassies in the Middle East and North Africa expanded. The alert includes Marine FAST teams being deployed to Libya and Yemen.
What could be more symbolic of the failures of the Obama foreign policy than the contrast of hearing the president and his surrogates repeatedly touting the killing of Osama bin Laden by a U.S. Seal team with pictures of the American flag replaced by al-Qaida’s menacing black standard at the U.S. Embassy in Tunis?
