Once again.. Obama that wonderful guy who so many see as lovable has show his babboon ass to Israel .. No time to meet the Prime Minister he had important things to do.. like give a speech in a large venue.. ( could have been a Pizza Parlor looking for a bear hug from a gay guy .. ) I have no clue..

Reality.. He claims so much about how wonderful he is in foreign affairs.. while the leader of our closest allie comes to visit with him.. gives him the snub..

And worse...

The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were
killed in a rocket attack in Benghazi on Wednesday, according to a
Libyan official, Reuters reports.


The Americans were targeted in an attack in their car, trying to move
to a safer venue away from the violent protests that erupted at the
U.S. Consulate. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens died of suffocation,
while the three other personnel were killed by gunshot wounds, CBS News reports.


U.S. officials have not confirmed the deaths, according to Reuters.


On Wednesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released a statement confirming the death of a State Department officer, but did confirm their identity.


"I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in
Benghazi today," Clinton said. "As we work to secure our personnel and
facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers
was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts
and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this
attack."


The Libyan official told Reuters the U.S. has transported the bodies
on a military plane to Tripoli to fly them back to the U.S. The protests
broke out due to outrage linked to an American video posted online that
is offensive Muslims.

Egyptian demonstrators climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo today and pulled down the American flag to protest a film they say is insulting to the prophet Mohammad.

Update at 2:07 p.m. ET: CNN reports that U.S. security guards fired a volley of warning shots as the crowd gathered outside the embassy walls.

CNN adds that the embassy had been expecting a demonstration and cleared all diplomatic personnel earlier from the facility.

Original post: The Associated Press reports that embassy officials say there was no staff inside at the time.

Reuters
reports that protesters tried to raise a black flag carrying the
slogan: "There is no god but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger."

The news agency says about 2,000 protesters have gathered outside the embassy and about 20 have scaled the walls.

The AP says the protesters were largely ultra-conservative Islamists.

Iran's FARS news agency says the film is the work of a group of "extremist" members of the Egyptian Coptic Church in the United States.

Al Ahram online says
the film is reportedly being produced by U.S.-based Coptic-Christian
Egyptians, including Esmat Zaklama and Morees Sadek, with the support of
the Terry Jones Church in the United States.

Jones is the evangelical pastor who stirred controversy last year by threatening to burn a Quran in public.

CNN says the film in question is a Dutch production.

The
AP says clips of the film available on YouTube show the prophet having
sex and question his role as the messenger of Godâ??s words.

After the protest, the U.S. Embassy issued this statement on its website:

The
Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts
by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims â??
as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the
11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the
United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve
our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect
for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly
reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech
to hurt the religious beliefs of other

The Grand Mufti of Egypt Sheikh Ali Gomaa strongly condemned the movie, AllAfrica.com reports.

"Freedom of speech does not warrant desecrating sanctities," Gomaa said in a statement Sunday.

    To Obama, regardless of the loss of American lives anywhere, none of that is important as campaigning and trying to win re-election. He may make a token effort with a quick speech for a photo op in hopes his supporters believe he cares when in fact, he only cares about politics and staying in the White House. The guy is truly a phony, inept, incompetent fool.

    It is all about being a public face ..
    'celebrating' the pose ..
    the photo-op .. lining the pockets ..
    schmoozing with and enjoying the elites ..

    (NOT one iota of care/concern about the deaths of citizens .. )

    Right you are Kat. I am old enough to remember back of Harry Truman and all of those following him. This guy we have now is a fake, much worse than any I can re-call. Jimmy Carter and LBJ were terrible but no where near this incompetent.
