On the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Muslims were attacking Americans and American interests across the world. American officials in Libya were being slaughtered, the Libyan consulate was set ablaze, the American school in Tunisia was torched, the US embassy was under seige in Yemen- four people were killed and dozens injured, protests took place outside US missions in Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia and Bangladesh. Our embassy in Egypt was under attack — the American flag torn down and replaced by the flag of jihad, hundreds of Muslim youths fought police outside the US embassy in Cairo overnight and demonstrated in Tahrir Square in the following morning. Over 500 Iranians chanted “death to America” and tried to converge on the Swiss embassy, which handles US interests in the absence of formal diplomatic relations, while demonstrators burnt American flags on the streets of Baghdad.
The U.S. embassy had put out a statement earlier on Tuesday condemning “misguided individuals” who hurt the religious feelings of Muslims or followers of other religions.
And Obama? He ignored it. Dismissed it. He Flew to Vegas on the 12th and compared his campaign volunteers to those dead and dying American officials killed in Libya, saying that ‘like them, you guys are Americans who sense that we can do better than we’re doing’.
And the enemedia? Spinning dung into campaign rhetoric to get this horror re-elected.

Note that Obama says, “Al Qaeda is on the path to defeat” the day before a Libyan defense militia warned State Department officials about the jihad threat in Benghazi. “Devastating Benghazi Timeline Reveals Obama MIA,” by Wynton Hall for Breitbart, January 16:
The government watchdog group that revealed that President Barack Obama failed to attend over half of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) released a devastating Benghazi timeline Wednesday….
As the GAI timeline reveals, Obama failed to attend his daily intelligence briefing for the five consecutive days leading up to the September 11, 2012 attack of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
The Benghazi timeline catalogues Obama’s continuous campaigning even as terrorist forces vowed Libyan attacks and State Department officials were warned of security threats.
The day following the deadly attacks, Obama departed for a Las Vegas campaign rally.
