Mrs. Clinton And Mr. Obama, It’s Time To Wake Up And Smell The Global Jihad

Whiton, Fox Nation

“When the men who killed our ambassador to Libya were in the final stages of their preparation, Hillary Clinton was in the Cook Islands, being regaled by locals in traditional dress. Her seemingly endless world tour has prioritized symbolism and pageantry over substance. So too has the administration of her boss, Barack Obama, and the costs are now becoming clear.

This explains why Obama’s chief diplomat said of the Libya attack: ‘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?’
Madam secretary, it is time for you and your boss to wake up and smell the global jihad.
There are people in this world—and not a small number of them—who share the vision bin Laden had and have the will and means to act. No amount of apologizing for America, embracing our adversaries or mistreating our allies will change that.
It is worth recalling that Cairo, the city where a mob entered the US embassy compound and burned an American flag, was the epicenter of what critics call Obama’s ‘apology tour.’ It was there that he apologized for critical steps American officials took in the Middle East to defend against the Soviets eight years before Obama was born. It was there that he criticized his own nation’s response to 9/11.
That was the reason US diplomats in Cairo instinctively put out an apologetic condemnation of those who ‘hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.’ They were simply channeling the Obama view of the world.
Hillary also said that the attack was the result of a ‘small and savage group.’
Wrong again.
Viewed correctly, the attack was perpetrated by a very large group. Terrorism as we have known it since 9/11 is but the violent vanguard of the Islamist political ideology. This ideology unifies diverse terrorists from Jemmah Islamiyah in Indonesia to Al-Shabaab in Somalia to Boko Haram in Nigeria to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt to the Haqqani network in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
While the groups are diverse and at times antagonistic toward each other, their hatred of America unites them, and they work toward a generally common goal.”
