This week, Americans watched in horror as US embassies around the Middle East were attacked by Muslim terrorists in an act of war. And in place after place, we saw the terrorists able to successfully overrun whatever security measures had been in place. In Libya, we witnessed the death of US Ambassador Chris Steven, an aide, and two US Marines. We recoiled in horror yesterday after finding out that Ambassador Stevens had been brutally sodomized by the Muslims before they killed him.
At Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan, 2 US Marines were killed in a Taliban surprise attack. In Tunisia, the very first country to be hit by the Arab Spring riots, the takeover of the US Embassy there was so complete that they were able to replace the Stars and Stripes with the Black Flag of Islam. And the list goes on and on.
It is in this climate that your president, Barack Hussein Obama, wants to slash MILLIONS from the existing budgets that exist to provide protection and security to American embassies around the world. If we are not able under the present budget to provide adequate protection for our people in the Middle East, the slashing of the budget would guarantee that our embassies will be overrun and our people executed.
If you think that the greatest threat to our national security is Muslim terrorists, you’d only be half right. The greatest threat to the US is not the Muslim around the world, it is the Muslim in the Oval Office.
