Four Americans Killed In Embassy Attack In Libya – Clinton Statement Added

Breaking news, it wasn’t just our ambassador to Libya who was killed yesterday (see previous post)

(Fox News) The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other American staff members were killed Tuesday in an attack on the U.S. consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, the White House confirmed. President Obama, in a written statement issued Wednesday morning, called the attack “outrageous” and “senseless.”

Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed Tuesday night when he and a group of embassy employees went to the consulate to try to evacuate staff. The protesters, angry over a film that ridiculed Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, were firing gunshots and rocket-propelled grenades.

The State Department identified one of the other three Americans killed as Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, a husband and father of two who had worked for the State Department for 10 years. The U.S. government is still notifying the next of kin for the other two individuals killed, and has not identified them.

Embassies around the world (read: in the Muslim world) have been put on notice to be on guard against further violence.

I’m confident all the Islamist apologistas will be out in full force (ones like The Atlantic’s Max Fisher), blaming America and attempting to paint Christians as exactly the same, yet, can anyone point towards Christians storming buildings, setting them on fire, and killing people? No one ever seems to be concerned about offending Christians and Jews, partly because …… Christians and Jews won’t go bat guano insane and riot, burn, and kill. And, about that video

A spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, the mainstream Islamist group and the sponsor of Egypt’s first elected president, Mohamed Morsi, urged the United States government on Tuesday to prosecute the “madmen” behind the video, according to the English-language Web site of the state newspaper, Al Ahram.

The spokesman asked for a formal apology from the United States government and warned that events like the video were damaging Washington’s relations with the Muslim world. He also emphasized that any protests should remain peaceful and respect property.

Sorry, bub, but we have a thing called freedom of speech here in the US, and do not prosecute people for offending Muslims and denigrating Mohammed…..actually, under the crazy “hate crimes” laws, that could actually happen.

More: I listened to Hillary Clinton’s statement earlier, and some of it was just plain aberrant

(Mediaite) “This is an attack that should shock the conscience of people of all faiths around the world,” said Clinton. “We condemn in the strongest terms this senseless act of violence and we send our prayers to the families, friends and colleagues of those we’ve lost.”

Um, why should it shock Christians, Jews, etc? This was being done in the name of Mohammed.

“This is not easy,” said Clinton. “Today, many Americans are asking – indeed, I asked myself – how could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save from destruction?”

Anyone else get the feeling she’s somewhat blaming the US? Anyhow, we kinda know the answer, and that it involves al Qaeda/hardcore Islamist front groups getting heavily involved with the Libyan rebels, much like in many other “Arab Spring” countries.

Oh, and the US embassy in Cairo was defaced with pro-Osama graffiti.

DrewM at Ace of Spades:

Compare that with Obama who said in part…

Appearing with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in the White House Rose Garden, Obama said: “We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal attacks.”The President of the United States of America should not “reject” a citizens right to speak however he or she wants even (or especially) if it offends someone. A President who prioritizes the feelings of foreigners over a strong, unequivocal defense of an American citizen’s exercise of our fundamental freedom is unfit for office. (snip)

Naturally, the maker of the film that is the supposed flash point of this exercise in outrage is in hiding. Obama had no kind words of support for him.

    How? I’ll tell you how. Because you simple minded morons all think that Islam is peaceful and that the Middle East just needs to be understood better. You don’t GET IT! They don’t give a flying fish for our customs, our western ways or our freedoms. They only know violence, and they don’t play by our rules at all. So grow up, and bomb the crap out of Libya. And while you’re over there, hit Egypt up. Brilliant idea to topple governments that are somehwat supportive of the West, leaving open the need for leadership that was bound to be filled (likley pre-ordained) by the Muslim Brotherhood. Great idea indeed.

    A good question has been asked, did this stupid movie incite the animals or has Obama with his constant references to “his” killing of old Bin and other Muslims? References only made to increase his poll numbers. I have heard that the crowds were cheering Bin when the actions occurred.

    Then consider that two Marines were killed (I am more concerned there than with the beuracrat), how many Libyans were killed for the Marines lives. I am betting none as the ROE’s would prevent them from taking action to save their lives. Why the ROE’s, so Obama would not look bad.

    Then there is the criticism of Romney. Why? He at least looked like a leader rather that Obama who looked like some one reading an anouncement.

    If we re-elect this nut, we are in trouble.

    the Muslim Brotherhood, the mainstream Islamist group

    FUG!! Mainstream?? Not in the least. How about massive terrorist organization?

    No, the movie did not incite them. Nothing external can incite people. It is all internal and with their sick, depraved violent minds and hearts. All they want is the slightest reason to go off and kill, murder and torture.

    And, latest news is that this was a big planned event. The movie is just people once again looking for REASONS why people do evil things.

    “It can’t be because Islamists are just evil and enjoy killing and blowing SH*T up, no it has to be because someone made a movie”

    UGH. And then our current occupier comes out and apologizes to the murderers for supposedly offending them.

    AARGH!!

    A couple dozen of missiles over there will solve alot of problems. (sorry, was that violent? What is proper response to declaration of war and murder?)
