For a day. But within hours, the administration account deflated...
AMERICANS SACRIFICED TO APPEASE MUSLIMS. The administration announced today the reason for the four dead Americans, was to show A. Q. in Libya that we really want to be friends. It was further expressed through a W.H. spokesperson that if more U.S. citizens need to be sacrificed in order to show the Muslim world that we really do like them and want to make friends, then that will be the policy of this Administration going, FORWARD.
The first statements from the Obama administration about what happened in Benghazi seemed plausible. There were, after all, protests throughout the Muslim world on the anniversary of 9/11 -- some incited by Islamists using an obscure video to arouse anti-American fervor in the mobs, and some, no doubt, just pelting U.S. embassies on general principles. When the administration explained that one of those protests had spun out of control and led to the murder of our ambassador and three other Americans in Libya, there seemed no reason to doubt it.
