NEWS: Al Zawahri Personally Ordered Al Qaeda To Murder US Ambassador Stevens
Lethal fantasy. Reality blows up Obama’s fantasist foreign policy. And Ambassador Stevens was a fellow traveler in this delusional religion-of-peace fantasist policy.
You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.
Back in March 2011, I warmed that Obama was aiding and abetting al qaeda in Libya. Obama owns Libya. This is all his. He can’t blame Bush and he can’t blame Bibi.
With this revelation, the late ambassador has become the symbol of what U.S. foreign policy is doing vis-a-vis the global jihad, and of what ultimately will be the outcome for the U.S. if this continues.
“Slain Ambassador Chris Stevens Slipped Into Libya on a Cargo Ship During Revolution,” by Amy Bingham for ABC OTUS News, September 12:
During the early days of the Libyans’ fight to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, Christopher Stevens wrangled a ride on a Greek cargo ship and sailed into the rebels’ stronghold city of Benghazi. He arrived at a time when the crackle of gunfire could be heard each night.Stevens and his team didn’t even have a place to stay, but found space in a hotel briefly, moving out after a car bomb went off in the parking lot, according to his own account in State Magazine last year.
Stevens, whose diplomatic foothold were a couple of battered tables, was on literally on the rebels’ side while the revolution was at its most vulnerable and in danger of being crushed by Gadhafi’s troops who were moving on the city. The threat was pushed back at the last minute by the intervention of NATO planes which began bombing Gadhafi’s tanks and troops.
Stevens, who was elevated to ambassador four months ago, was killed Tuesday by militants in Gadhafi who stormed the Benghazi consulate.
Stevens “will be remembered as a hero by many nations,” his boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said this morning. “He risked his life to stop a tyrant then gave his life trying to help build a better Libya. The world needs more Chris Stevenses.”…
And it will surely get them.
In a State Department video introducing Stevens as the new ambassador to Libya last May, Stevens says he “quickly grew to love this part of the world” during his time in the Peace Corps and since joining the Foreign Service “spent almost my entire career in the Middle East and Africa.”He says in the video that he “was thrilled to watch the Libyan people stand up and demand their rights” during the 2011 revolution, which ousted Gadhafi.
At his Senate confirmation hearing in March, Stevens said, “It will be an extraordinary honor to represent the United States during this historic period of transition in Libya.”…
The US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three staff members at the US consulate in Benghazi were deliberately murdered Tuesday night Sept 11 just after memorial ceremonies were held in America for the victims of the 9/11 outrage. Counter-terror sources report exclusively that far from being a spontaneous raid by angry Islamists, it was a professionally executed terrorist operation by a professional Al Qaeda assassination team, whose 20 members acted under the orders of their leader Ayman al Zawahri after special training. They were all Libyans, freed last year from prisons where they were serving sentences for terrorism passed…
But what about Romneyâ€™s gaffes? The consulate where the American ambassador to Libya was killed on Tuesday is an Â“interim facilityÂ” not protected by the contingent of Marines that safeguards embassies, POLITICO has learned …A senior administration official Wednesday called the Benghazi consulate Â“an interim facility,Â” which the State Department began using Â“before the fall of Qadhafi.Â” It was staffed Tuesday by Libyan and State Department security officers. The consulate came under fire from heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades at about 10 p.m. local time on Tuesday. By the time the attack ended several hours later, four Americans were…

Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff urges more sharia in the US calls Qur’an-burning pastor, asks him to comply with Islamic blasphemy laws
More sharia compliance from top US military brass. Mind you, this is the same General Dempsey whose aircraft was rocket attacked at Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan not a month ago by these same jihadists who adhere to the same Islamic doctrine .
General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, called Pastor Terry Jones by phone on Wednesday and “asked him to withdraw his support for a film whose portrayal of the Prophet Mohammad has sparked violent protests.”
This won’t work. It weakens us. Didn’t the the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff get the memo that it is his job to defend the Constitution and our basic freedoms, not to curtail them? If these folks wish to restrict free speech, they should move. There are hundreds of countries that restrict speech. Go there. Don’t force us to sacrifice our freedoms because you are afraid of offending savages.
Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff calls Qur’an-burning pastor, asks him to practice Sharia-compliant self-censorship Jihad Watch
It’s come to this. Even the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff thinks that it if Muslims respond to something with murderous violence, it is up to the non-Muslims to change the way they behave so as to accommodate them. And so eleven years after 9/11, terrorism well and truly won: now if any group wants anything, they know that all they have to do in order to get it is rampage and riot and kill.
Also, this film didn’t “spark violent protests.” The film has been on YouTube since 2011. Someone found the film and thought it would serve as a pretext for attacks on Americans on September 11.
And in response, General Dempsey calls those who are supposedly responsible for the film and asks them to submit voluntarily to Sharia restrictions on the freedom of speech regarding Islam.
Turn out the lights. It’s all over.
“Top U.S. military officer calls pastor over film,” Reuters, September 12 (thanks to Gerard):
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke with Pastor Terry Jones by phone on Wednesday and asked him to withdraw his support for a film whose portrayal of the Prophet Mohammad has sparked violent protests – including one that ended with the death of America’s envoy to Libya. “In the brief call, Gen. Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause,” Dempsey’s spokesman, Colonel Dave Lapan, told Reuters. “He asked Mr. Jones to consider withdrawing his support for the film.” U.S. military officials are concerned that the film could inflame tensions in Afghanistan, where 74,000 U.S. troops are fighting. The Taliban earlier on Wednesday called on Afghans to prepare for a fight against Americans and urged insurgents to “take revenge” on U.S. soldiers over the film.

The U.S. embassy had put out a statement earlier on Tuesday condemning “misguided individuals” who hurt the religious feelings of Muslims or followers of other religions.

Protest in Cairo at U.S. Embassy Protesters hold an American flag taken down at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. (Mohammed Abu Zaid, Associated Press / September 11, 2012)
CAIRO — More than a dozen Egyptian protesters, angry over what they called an anti-Muslim video, scaled the outer wall of the fortress-like U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and took down an American flag.
In its place, they raised a black flag that read: “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet” before Egyptian security forces sought to tame the crowd.
As night fell, protesters continued to gather outside the embassy in one of the biggest demonstrations there since the fall of Hosni Mubarak‘s government early last year. Security forces surrounded the compound to prevent protesters from again storming it, though some demonstrators remained on the wall, waving black flags.
As many as 2,000 demonstrators had rallied outside the embassy in a gathering called for by the Islamic conservative Salafist movement to protest a video posted on YouTube that they said insulted Islam. The mood was heated and people in the crowd could not even agree which video they were protesting against.
Some said it was a film made by Egyptian Coptic immigrants in the United States that had been played in Egypt on private TV channel Al Nas, run by Salafists, before the rally. The video shown on the channel refers to Muhammad and his followers as “child lovers.” It also showed the prophet speaking to a supposed Muslim donkey, asking him whether he loves women. The channel’s enraged host and a commentator then demanded to know how Islam could be treated in such a debasing way.
Others said they were protesting a video made in a collaboration of Copts in the United States and Florida preacher Terry Jones, whose 2011 burning of a Koran triggered riots in Afghanistan.
Nader Bakar, spokesman of Al Nour party, the political arm of the Salafist movement, denied any involvement in the uproar.
“We were there for a couple of hours in a peaceful protest,” said Bakar, who had called for the demonstration the day before. “We are against this movie being made to defame the prophet. The U.S. Embassy understood this and they issued a statement condemning hateful rhetoric.”
Bakar acknowledged that he had only read about the video in a newspaper but not watched it before calling for protests.
The hysteria was a reminder of the volatility of politics in post-Mubarak Egypt, where, more than ever, rumor can stir people into a frenzy.
“Many of the people here haven’t even seen the movie,” said Mostafa Nageh, a youth who attended the protest. “Most people came out to protest just because they heard that a video insulting the prophet was made in the U.S.”
In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday that the breach of the embassy wall “came up pretty quickly” and involved a “relatively modest group of people, but caught probably us and the Egyptian security outside by some surprise.” She said she was not aware of any injuries.
She said that “protest is possible in the new Egypt,” and the action didn’t signal a new anti-Americanism by the public or government of Egypt.
Meanwhile, Egyptian authorities ordered the arrest of former presidential candidate Ahmed Shafik in a corruption case that involves Mubarak’s two sons and four retired military generals.
A judge referred Shafik, along with Gamal and Alaa Mubarak, to criminal court on charges of purposefully squandering public funds and selling land for less than market value in the Ismailia governorate, Egypt’s state news agency reported.
The allegations bring up Shafik’s role as a chairman of a housing association in the 1990s when he reportedly sold land to the Mubarak brothers at unreasonably low prices. The judge called for Shafik, who was Hosni Mubarak’s close friend and last prime minister, to be jailed and remain in custody until trial.
Shafik, who has lived in the United Arab Emirates since losing June’s presidential election to Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamed Morsi, recently slammed the Egyptian authorities’ decision to investigate him. In a television interview, he said the state’s actions were “politically motivated.”

EGYPT & LIBYA: Muslim Savages attack U.S. diplomatic compounds because of film considered offensive to Islam
In Cairo, Egypt, several men scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy and tore down its American flag, replacing it with the black flag of al-Qaeda. In Benghazi, Libya, witnesses say members of a radical Islamist group called Ansar al-Sharia protested near the U.S. Consulate. The U.S. Embassy in Cairo quickly apologized for hurting ‘Muswums wittle feewings.’
Gee, isn’t that the same Egypt we just gave another $1.5 billion? And isn’t that the same Libya for which America spent over $1 billion to enforce a No-FLY zone while arming the anti-Gaddafi rebels?
CNN The group then clashed with security forces in the city, blocking roads leading to the consulate, witnesses said. The Libyan government notified the United States that an employee at the U.S. Consulate was killed, a State Department official told CNN.
The State Department does not have independent confirmation of the death, the official said. The nationality of the worker was not immediately known.
Libya’s General National Conference condemned the attack, saying it “led to the regrettable injury and death of a number of individuals.” Lawmakers said in a statement Tuesday night that they were investigating.
“One such breach of an embassy or consulate’s walls or security on any given day would be tremendous news. … The fact that two of them happened on the same day that is the 9/11 anniversary where Americans are remembering those that we lost, you have to ask yourself, what are American officials trying to understand about this and whether or not these two are related?” she asked.
In Egypt, police and army personnel formed defensive lines around the U.S. Embassy in an effort to prevent demonstrators from advancing, but not before the protesters affixed a black flag of al-Qaeda atop a ladder in the American compound. The black flag, which hangs in full view from inside the complex, is adorned with white characters that read, “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger,” an emblem often used by Islamic radicals.
A volley of warning shots were fired as a large crowd gathered around the compound, although it is not clear who fired the shots. Egyptian groups point to U.S. websites, including YouTube, that have scenes from the film. Some anti-Muslim blogs also have flagged the movie. In a series of disjointed scenes, filmmakers depict Prophet Mohammed as a child molester, womanizer and ruthless killer.
The U.S. Embassy in Cairo said in a statement that it “condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”
“Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy,” the statement said. “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
Most of the Muslim world considers depictions of Mohammed to be blasphemous and deeply offensive. It was not clear late Tuesday who produced the film and under what auspices.
“It is unclear if large numbers will take to the streets, but clashes may occur should two opposing groups come into contact with one another,” the U.S. Embassy said in a statement. “Large gatherings and non-essential travel in and around downtown and Garden City should be avoided this afternoon.”
Frenzied protesters could been seen Tuesday afternoon holding up bits of a shredded American flag to television camera crews while chanting anti-U.S. slogans.
CONFIRMED: One American diplomat killed in the barbaric attack by Muslims on U.S. Consulate in Libya.

Banned by the U.S. media, this should be required viewing for every adult and child over 12.
It is estimated that at least 200 people jumped to their deaths, far more than can be seen in the photographs taken that morning. The jumping started shortly after the first jet hit at 8:46 a.m. People jumped continuously during the 102 minutes that the north tower stood. It took just 10 seconds to fall but it wasn’t fast enough for the victims to lose consciousness before they hit the ground.

FDNY first responders on hearing people jumping to their deaths from the top of the towers.
The enemedia is going after the filmmaker and anyone who gave him money for his work. The thugs in the mainstream media are blaming the acts of war and the savage murder of our US Ambassador and staff on defenders of freedom — they are the enemy, make no mistake about it.
That youtube video has been up for months. The jihadists were just looking for any excuse to attack us on September 11th. They knew their quislings in the media would lap it up and hunt down voices of freedom.
Dave Tombers has an good piece on the war:
President Obama today condemned as “senseless violence” the attacks on the nation’s Libyan embassy that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, but he also said the U.S. “rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”
But that statement appears to blame free speech instead of the perpetrators for the violence, and that’s out of line, according to several experts on the influence of Shariah law and critics of what then follows.
“In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Obama’s foreign policy supports the savage,” wrote Pamela Geller on her Atlas Shrugs website.
She noted that Obama’s criticism of free speech echoed a statement issued earlier by the embassy in Egypt, which said, “We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”
“He is sanctioning Islam’s blasphemy laws, which forbid criticism of Islam. The sanctioning of the blasphemy laws and the threat – and now reality of Islamic violence against those who transgress against those laws – has led to this act of war, and will lead to further acts of war,” she said.
Reports say that the radical Muslims were angered by “Innocence of Muslims,” a “low-quality film” that is reported to mock Muhammad.
Geller, who also is executive director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) didn’t waste any time in labeling Obama’s foreign policy as a contributing factor in the deaths of Americans.
“I warned countless times of the catastrophic consequences of Obama’s foreign policy,” Geller tells WND. “I warned that Obama was helping to install a Shariah government with jihadist ties in Libya.
“I have for years now warned Americans about Obama’s pro-jihadist, anti-freedom foreign policy. By murdering the ambassador, Libya has declared war on the United States,” she said.
“And his apology was worst of all,” she continued. “Condemning filmmakers and cartoonists for this is just as much of an act of war on America as the attacks themselves – it is an act of war on our very ideals, an act of war on the First Amendment.”
The director of Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer, told WND that the ones responsible for rage and murder are the jihadists, but he also criticized the U.S. government reaction.
“Instead of condemning the murder and mayhem designed to intimidate Americans into not speaking freely about jihad and Islam, Obama has freely abdicated his responsibility to stand for the freedom of speech,” Spencer told WND.
“In reality, the only ones responsible for jihad rage and murder are the jihadists,” he said. “If you hit me or call me a name, my reaction is up to me. There is no automatic, default-mode reaction to which I am bound.
“If Muslims in Egypt and Libya were insulted by this film, (although it appears that they found it while looking for something to get insulted about), their reaction was up to them. It was not incited by the film,” he said.
“They could have laughed it off, or wept, or dismissed it with contempt, or prepared a rebuttal, or any number of other things. Instead, they rioted and killed. Those who did so are the only ones responsible for that. No one else,” he said.
“But this will be used to further calls for censorship and to abet the Islamic war against the freedom of speech,” he said.
Spencer also wrote about the killings, under a picture of a bloodied Ambassador Stevens, on his website, Jihadwatch.org, and had this to say, “The torture and murder of Chris Stevens shows what jihadist savagery looks like. Remember this picture the next time someone tells you that concern about jihad and Islamic supremacism is all about ‘Islamophobia.’”
