Al Qaida, "The Foundation," represents resurgent Muslim imperialism, which dates back to Mohammed, fourteen centuries ago. Like Lenin and the Viet Cong, AQ does not have to win every fight, only the last one.
Al Qaida's late leader, Osama bin Laden, boasted of the organization as a "strong horse," that would attract admiration and support from around the world, as opposed to the "weak horse" embodied by the United States.
AQ has just revealed Obama to be the weakest horse in history --- a feeble swayback nag --- by murdering our Libyan ambassador and burning part of the Cairo embassy. In response, we have done nothing. We don't think there's a problem.
Our good buds of the "Arab Spring" allowed this to happen --- although it is the solemn duty of host governments to protect diplomatic missions.
We have recognized radical madcap regimes that let our embassies to be burned and Ambassador Christopher Stevens to be murdered.
Hillary and Obama enabled it.
They played the weak horse.
That was Al Qaida's goal.
An Expert Speaks Out
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt laid the blame for the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans at the Benghazi, Libya American mission on Hillary Clinton and the State Department.
According to Colonel Hunt, the American mission at Benghazi "was like a cardboard building, there wasn't even bullet proof glass." In addition, Hunt said the security guards inside the mission didn't have bullets... (Italics added throughout.)
Hunt told Breitbart News that the new State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, approved and signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after the 2011 fall of Khadafi's regime, severely compromised the safety and security of murdered Ambassador Stevens and all American diplomatic staff in Libya.
He also stated that the decision not to staff Benghazi with Marines was made by Secretary of State Clinton. Breitbart News has subsequently learned that under those rules of engagement, Secretary Clinton prohibited Marines from providing security at any American diplomatic installation in Libya.
"The State Department just allowed our guys to get killed. If you approve no bullets in guns for the mission security guards and an outhouse for a mission, you're inviting it."
Howie Carr: They weren't allowed to have bullets, is that correct?
Colonel Hunt: That's true. They were private security. The rules of engagement were ridiculous."The policy of the Obama administration led to this," he said. "What's happened in Libya is the final straw of political correctness. We allowed a contractor to hire local nationals as security guards, but said they can't have bullets. This was all part of the point of not having a high profile in Libya."
"If you carried a sharp stick within a mile of the conventions at Tampa or Charlotte you got arrested, yet you don't give bullets to the guards of our ambassador to Libya. It wouldn't surprise me if Al Qaeda bought off some of the Libyan nationals hired to guard our ambassador at Benghazi."
A Background Briefing on Libya
The following is derived from an October 9th briefing in the form of a conference call arranged by the Office of the Spokesperson of the Department of State. The speakers are State Department officials intimately involved with the unfolding Benghazi fiasco.
"... So Chris Stevens coming back into Benghazi on April 5th, 2011... They set up shop in a hotel, as I mentioned. A few weeks later in June, a bomb explodes in the parking lot in front of the hotel. ...by August they settle on a large compound which is where the actual activity on 9/11 took place.... The compound is roughly 300 yards long -- that's three football fields long -- and a hundred yards wide. We need that much room to provide the best possible setback against car bombs. Over the next few months, physical security at the compound is strengthened. The outer wall is upgraded, its height is increased to nine feet. It is topped by three feet of barbed wire and concertina wire all around the huge property. External lighting is increased. Jersey barriers, which are big concrete blocks, are installed outside and inside the gate. Steel drop bars are added at the gates to control vehicle access and to provide some anti-ram protection. The buildings on the compound itself were strengthened."
"Okay. The ambassador has arrived in Benghazi on the 10th of September... The next day is 9/11... because it is 9/11, out of prudence, he has all his meetings on the compound... Everything is calm at 8:30 p.m. There's nothing unusual. There has been nothing unusual during the day at all outside.
"A few minutes later -- we're talking about 9 o'clock at night -- the ambassador retires to his room... At 9:40 p.m., the agents... hear loud noises coming from the front gate. They also hear gunfire and an explosion. The agent ... looks at his cameras -- these are cameras that have pictures of the perimeter -- and the camera on the main gate reveals a large number of men, armed men, flowing into the compound. One special agent immediately goes to get the ambassador in his bedroom and ... the three of them enter the safe haven inside the building.
"...A safe haven is a fortified area within a building. This particular safe haven has a very heavy metal grill on it with several locks on it... Also in the safe haven is a central sort of closet area where people can take refuge where there are no windows around. In that safe haven are medical supplies, water, and such things. All the windows to that area of the building have all been grilled. A couple of them have grills that can be open from the inside so people inside can get out, but they can't be - obviously can't be opened from the outside."
"...from ...the very beginning of this incident, (another agent) has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington. He had them all going to ask for help.
"They turn around immediately and head back to where the ambassador and his colleagues are. They encounter a large group of armed men... The agents that encounter the armed group make a tactical decision to turn around and go back and... barricade themselves in there. So we have people in three locations right now.
"...the attackers, when they came through the gate, they immediately torched the barracks. It is aflame, the barracks that was occupied by the 17th February Brigade armed host country security team."
...at the very first moment ...he immediately hits an alarm... He gets on the public address system as well, yelling, "Attack, attack." ...attackers penetrate in Building C. They walk around inside the building into a living area, not the safe haven area. The building is dark. They look through the grill, they see nothing. They try the grill, the locks on the grill; they can't get through."
"They have jerry cans full of diesel fuel that they've picked up at the entrance when they torched the barracks. They have sprinkled the diesel fuel around. They light the furniture in the living room -- this big, puffy, Middle Eastern furniture. They light it all on fire, and they have also lit part of the exterior of the building on fire...
"...where the ambassador is, the building is rapidly filling with smoke... The smoke is extremely thick. It's diesel smoke, and also, obviously, smoke from - fumes from the furniture that's burning. And the building inside is getting more and more black. The ambassador and the two others make a decision that... it's starting to get tough to breathe in there, and so they move to another part of the safe haven, a bathroom that has a window. They open the window. The window is, of course, grilled. They open the window trying to get some air in. That doesn't help. The building is still very thick in smoke.
"... So they're in the bathroom and they're now on the floor of the bathroom because they're starting to hurt for air. They are breathing in the bottom two feet or so of the room, and even that is becoming difficult.
"...They decide that they're going to go out through an adjacent bedroom which has one of the window grills that will open... There is firing going on outside... There are tracer bullets. There is smoke. There is -- there are explosions... I think they were RPGs. So there's a lot of action going on... there are dozens of armed men on the compound.
"The agent... is suffering severely from smoke inhalation at this point. He can barely breathe. He can barely see. He's got the grill open and he flops out of the window onto a little patio that's been enclosed by sandbags. He determines that he's under fire, but he also looks back and sees he doesn't have his two companions. He goes back in to get them. He can't find them. He goes in and out several times before smoke overcomes him completely, and he has to stagger up a small ladder to the roof of the building and collapse. He collapses.
"...He radios the other agents that he's got a problem. He is very difficult to understand. He can barely speak...
"Two of them set up as best a perimeter as they can, and the third agent goes into the building... into the choking smoke. When that agent can't proceed, another agent goes in, and so on. And they take turns going into the building on their hands and knees, feeling their way through the building... They are unable to find the ambassador.
"...All the agents at this point are suffering from smoke inhalation. The agent that had been in the building originally with the ambassador is very, very severely impacted, the others somewhat less so, but they can't go back in...
"The agent makes a couple of attempts, cannot proceed. He's back outside of the building. He takes his shirt off. There's a swimming pool nearby. He dips his shirt in the swimming pool and wraps it around his head, goes in one last time. Still can't find the ambassador. Nobody is able to find the ambassador.
"At this point, the quick reaction security team... are saying, 'We cannot stay here. It's time to leave. We've got to leave. We can't hold the perimeter.' So at that point, they make the decision to evacuate the compound... My agents pile into an armored vehicle with the body of Sean, and they exit the main gate.
"...they take fire almost as soon as they emerge from the compound. They go ... toward the annex. They don't like what they're seeing ahead of them. There are crowds. There are groups of men. They turn around and go the other direction. They don't like what they're seeing in that direction either. They make another U-turn.
"At this point, they take direct fire from AK-47s from about two feet away. The men also throw hand grenades or gelignite bombs under -- at the vehicle and under it. At this point, the armored vehicle is extremely heavily impacted, but it's still holding. There are two flat tires, but they're still rolling. And they continue far down the block toward the crowds and far down several blocks to the crowd -- to another crowd where this road T-bones into a main road. There is a crowd there. They pass through the crowd and on -- turn right onto this main road. This main road is completely choked with traffic, enormous traffic jam... Rather than get stuck in the traffic, the agents careen their car over the median -- there is a median, a grassy median -- and into the opposing traffic ... until they emerge into a more lightly trafficked area and ultimately make their way to the annex.
"...there are people at the annex. The guys in the car join the defense at the annex. They take up firing positions on the roof -- some of them do... The annex is, at this time, also taking fire and does take fire intermittently, on and off, for the next several hours. The fire consists of AK-47s but also RPGs, and it's, at times, quite intense.
"...the reinforcements from Tripoli... take up their positions. And... somewhere around 4 o'clock in the morning the annex takes mortar fire. It is precise and some of the mortar fire lands on the roof of the annex. It immediately killed two security personnel that are there, severely wounds one of the agents that's come from the compound. At that point, a decision is made... to evacuate the whole enterprise... in a large convoy of vehicles... to the airport, where they are evacuated on two flights."
Unbelievable! Four years ago, late-night comics complained that Obama could not be laughed at. Now the administration is writing its own material. It's full of belly laughs... for Al Qaida. Muslims are laughing and passing out candy like it was 9/11/01. What fools these Americans are!
Obama opened his engagement with Islam with a statement of surrender to the radical Muslims of the world, the "Cairo speech" delivered at fundamentalist Al Azhar University. Obama has consistently sided with radicals in Iran, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Tunisia, the Gulf, and Saudi Arabia. He has demanded the unconditional retreat of Israel to the 1948 ceasefire lines "with adjustments." Hamas, Hezbollah and the other fanatics understand the message: Obama will sabotage America's commitment to Israel.
But it's not just Israel. China has recently grabbed island territory claimed by Japan and the Philippines. North Korea is exporting nukes and tunneling technology to Iran. Nuclear proliferation is out of control. Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, South Korea are in danger.
The administration has been penetrated by Muslim radicals, some of them welcomed in Arabic by National Security "terrorism czar" John Brennan. Huma Abedin, with relatives active in the Muslim Brotherhood, the grandfather of Islamic terrorist groups, acts as Hillary's assistant, walking with a headscarved Hillary in a universal gesture of submission to the Muslim world: a veiled women with her escort.
After the treacherous "Arab Spring," millions of women are now imprisoned in their homes, covered in chadors and niqabs and forced to vote according to the whims of the patriarchy. American men are the target of feminist paranoids; real patriarchal ideologues can only be found in the rising Muslim empires, where women are abused and sometimes killed. Liberals, in their moral confusion and hatred for the West, end up betraying their own program.
Obama is a Marxist atheist who suffers from overlapping pathologies: narcissism of the malignant variety and oppositional-defiant disorder, which makes him work to undermine American security and well-being. Our abject surrender to a medieval ideology rooted in the 7th century is not just a mistake. It is sabotage.
Obama is not a liberal but a Marxisant, a would-be Trotsky, indoctrinated by the real America-haters of the left, of whom there are many.
Such is our lot today.
To counteract this, conservatives must adopt a revolutionary strategy, because the counterculture has taken over America and the West. Wars are won in the minds of men and women.
We have immense strengths --- 230 years of the most successful Constitution in human history. We have the deep and fundamental sympathy of thinking people around the world. We have been defeated by a sneak attack from the same left that supported the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Now we must adopt a strategy of resistance in enemy territory.
The left has declared war against the normal people of this country. We are now the enemy of the media, the political machine, and their vast network in the schools, the colleges, and the government. They are on a Long March to goals antithetical to the great majority of Americans.
Human struggles are won in the minds of men and women. Defeating Obama is only the first step. Americans have seen trouble before. We have overcome. Prepare to defend against Marxist and Muslim tyranny --- at home and around the world.
