Listen to these details buried in the CBS News report about the attacks in Libya and Egypt:
According to al-Sharef, the angry mob stormed the consulate after the U.S. troops who responded fired rounds into the air to try and disperse the crowd. Al-Sharef said there had been threats that Islamic militants might try to take revenge for the death of al Qaeda’s No. 2 commander Abu Yahya al-Libi, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan in June, and he said the U.S. consulate should have been better protected.
Confirming al-Libi’s death for the first time in a video posted online Monday, al Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahri called on Muslim’s in al-Libi’s native Libya to take revenge for his death.
Al-Sharef said the Libyan guards employed to guard the consulate building were far outgunned by the protesters, and thus retreated when the building was stormed.
In plain English, the Obama Administration should have been prepared to repel such attacks, but failed to take precautions to protect U.S. citizens. As a result, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith, and two U.S. Marines were murdered by Islamic terrorists.
Obama is not competent. Islamists view him as weak at best, and an ally at worse.
Foreign policy just became a campaign issue.
