Islamist Protests Continue Across World

According to the UK Independent (isn’t it amazing how we have to learn info like this from the foreign media?) there were warnings about an attack on the US embassy in Libya

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

The White House supposedly rebutted this, but Powerline says it was a non-denial denial. Lost in the raid where all sorts of documents indicating which Libyans were working with the US.

But, remember, this is all Mitt Romney’s fault.

In actuality, I won’t put any blame on Barack Obama, unless information comes out that this is something he should have known about, such as being part of an intelligence briefing, which he continuously skips. “The buck stops here” is a cute phrase, but the highest leader in any organization can’t know everything.

Let’s move on to yet another British news organization, the UK Guardian (where I also pulled the above tweet), as I’m not finding this information from the usual American news outlets. The Guardian has a continuously updated timeline of events, which was updated even as I write this

Anti-US protests, sparked by a controversial film which insulted Islam, have spread to more countries. Protests have been reported today in Iraq, Iran, Indonesia, Qatar, Kashmir, Egypt, Yemen, Jordan, Sudan and Afghanistan.

Police fired teargas, water cannon and shots into the air to stop protesters reaching the US Embassy (in Yemen). On Thursday four people were killed and dozens of protesters and guards injured after protesters stormed the embassy compound.

Security near the US embassy in Cairo has been stepped up after a third night of violence. The security forces erected a concrete wall in the area in effort to protect the building.

Those walls would have been nice a few nights ago.

About 200 people held a largely peaceful protest outside the heavily guarded US embassy in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta.

AP says they waved black flags and held signs that read: “America has to be responsible for Islamophobia worldwide”.

Black flag, eh?

In Afghanistan

In Kabul preachers told their congregations that Muslims had a duty to protest against the film, but should do it peacefully.

If you have to implore your people to protest peacefully, there must be a concern that they wouldn’t. With Islamists, though, this is like telling boys standing near a mud puddle to stay clean.

More black flags?

And then we get this picture

Hmm, seems very similar to the al Qaeda flag, and is also used by hardcore Islamists around the world. The headbands have the same message, ‘There is no god but God and Muhammad is his prophet.’ This is what happens when someone (cough POTUS cough) leads from behind which allowed the hardcore Islamists to join forces and ingratiate themselves with the Arab Spring protesters.

    Except, are we not told that Obama doesn’t need the personal security updates because he reads them all every day.

    And, isn’t this a reason why we have subordinates that we trust? So they can weed through information and tell us what we need to know?

    Isn’t the state department (Hillary Clinton) actually responsible for what happens and goes on at Embassies? So, as Sect’y of state, shouldn’t she also be getting the security updates?

    How about the FBI? CIA? Someone there should have known and either made a decision or told someone who could. And if they did, why was security not upgraded after the last attack, something done based on the information learned, and even… FRIGGIN AMMO GIVEN TO Embassy guards!?!?!?
