Bolton: Administration’s “Passivity” Sends Signal, “You Can Kill Americans With Impunity”
Cybercast News Service ^ | November 16, 2012 | Susan Jones

Two months after the terror attack in Benghazi, there’s been “no retribution, no retaliation, no visible action by the United States against those who murdered four American citizens,” and that sends a dangerous signal, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton told Fox News on Thursday:

“Now, maybe there’s something the administration has in the works, one of the rare national security secrets they've been able to keep. But the signal in the Middle East and beyond is, you can kill Americans with impunity. And that is a lesson, once learned, it’s going to cause consequences that reverberate down the years.” …

I can’t help but think about Obama lying about Muslim’s murdering our ambassador in Behgahzi and blaming the murders there on an America movie.

Doesn’t that dumb a** know that his constant pimping of the Muslim lie emboldens the murdering Muslims?

Every time he defends and lies about the murders that Muslims are responsible for, he gives them ammo against innocent people.

Oh so sad........
SAD SAD SAD......
I never thought I’d see the day when I would watch our country die.... but we are watching it slowly being suffocated and killed from within, at the top level of our government.

I just can’t stop weeping tonight. Israel is alone now, and all her allies are now turning against her, thanks to Obama’s destructive powers, and our OWN Americans are being slaughtered with nare a word from the president!

Israel is prepared to go it alone, but even the Marxist will have to eventually back Israel, because a lot of our technology comes from Israel.

Bolton is right, however. The Marxist has more than signaled weakness. He is WEAK, because hes unfit for CIC. He has Moslem leanings.

I generally agree with what Bolton has to say but in this instance I think he is grandstanding on preelection hype. This was a CIA base attacked by our enemies its no different than an attack on a military compound with the loss of four valuable American lives. We are at war and losing that war, and this country cannot recognize that fact because politicians of both parties tell the public all is fine..

This is EXACTLY the point Romney made in the debates when he said obama went on an apology tour of the ME.

He does care very much.

You, sir, assume he's on America's side, this is an assumption with no evidence whatsoever to back it.

Obama is the guy who said he'd stand with the muslims should the political winds turn in an ugly direction.

He meant it with every fiber of his being.

Which is precisely the message he has been sending since he took office and changed the ROE in Afghanistan which mccrystal, petraeus, and now allen have faithfully followed without standing up for our men and women in harm’s way even ONCE. Americans are sacrifices to allah and make no mistake about it.

I am not sure if he is one, but he is damned soft on them. But considering the number of people that voted for him it must be OK with the Democrats.

Dear Dim-bulb,
There are four Americans dead, killed by AQ and fellow creeps. There was a time when that wasn't done because Uncle Sam would kick your butt. Now we are friends with our enemy's and our leader is them.

What comes after “trillion?” We’re probably going to find out now that the One has a Two.

A quadrillion is a thousand trillion or 1 × 1015. There are apparently derivatives whose amounts reach into the quadrillions of dollars, last estimate $1.5 quadrillion. ($1 quadrillion amounts to 15 times the GDP of every country on the planet Earth.)

It had official status - they attacked our folks on our soil. The Administration willingly sacrificed the folks who died. Doesn’t matter much what the true status is - if we don’t go after them and spill their blood, it is a sign of weakness and, as Bolton said, a tacit OK to kill Americans. Rather than band-standing, Bolton is saying it as it needs to be said - if anyone wants to nay-say Bolton, it will uncover more of the atrocities by Obozo and his - Bolton doesn’t just spout words for their initial and overt efect...

The Liberals I talk to - not many - don't even know Israel produces anything more than good Jewish food. They watch an hour of MSNBC each weekday morning & maybe in the evening, & THAT'S IT. That is all they know. Try that for 6 months & see how dumb you get!

As for Israeli military tech., Obama is gutting the military, just as Europe has. Who needs technology when “Kumbaya” is our new strategy? Besides, military tech is banned on the golf course & at Hollywood parties, so who needs it?

Nope, Israel is truly on her own for at least 4 years, & perhaps forever. This increases the likelihood of nuclear war, perhaps initiated by terrorists and/or Iran, or perhaps as a last desperate attempt by Israel to avoid or avenge total destruction.
