The terrorists in Sinai, under the leadership of Osama bin Laden’s former doctor, intended to destroy Israel. But first they needed to neutralize the Egyptian army. Remember, those were the weapons that Senators McCain and Graham insisted on supplying to the Libyan rebels.
To make matters worse, the administration came to the aid of Muslim Brotherhood supporters, who set up camps in the middle of suburban Cairo. There, they killed and tortured their opponents. While those “campers” called for the killing of Christians and government officials, the White House and State Department simply touted the line that they had a right to a peaceful demonstration.
It turns out that a large enough stockpile of weapons was inside the camp to destroy the country. If not for the sacrificial intervention of the police, armed only with tear gas, that might have happened. When the police finally moved in after six weeks and removed the armed terrorists, the White House objected and strenuously demanded that the protestors’ rights be respected.
So the Obama Administration needs to do some soul searching, if it has a soul.
In the mean time, I pray that our electorate will wake up when they go to the polls in 2014 and 2016.
