US embassy guard in Yemen assassinated by terrorists

Anniversary of USS Cole bombing marked by more violence

Another U.S. embassy staffer has been murdered. This morning in Yemen, multiple masked gunmen opened fire, assassinating Qassem Aqlan, a longtime U.S. embassy employee who headed the embassy’s security investigation team.

How long will it be before the mouthpieces representing the Obama regime find an obscure YouTube video on which to blame this murder or for the dishonest Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and Jay Carney to claim this was not a terrorist attack and was unrelated to al Qaeda jihadists?

And as the murders of U.S. ambassador Christopher Stephens and three American diplomatic personnel in Benghazi, Libya were coordinated with the anniversary of September 11, 2001 terror attacks, this assassination in Yemen coincides with the anniversary of the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole — which took 17 lives on the guided missile destroyer enforcing the U.N. embargo on Iraq a dozen years ago.  The American vessel had been refueling at the Yemeni port of Aden when a pair of suicide bombers rammed their explosive-packed skiff into the ship.

Here U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) blasted the Obama regime hacks for providing “demonstrably false” statements about the Benghazi attack, not just to Congress, but also to the American people. Gowdy speaks for us all when he says, “It was never about a video, it was never spontaneous. This is terror. And I want to know why we were lied to.”

    And today the Obama administration is blaming Romney/Ryan because they dare to bring up the tiny topic of terrorism. (guess the Blame Bush thing isn’t polling so well)

    Here’s a tidbit:
    Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said Thursday that the “entire reason” the terrorist attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans has “become the political topic it is” is because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan talk about the attack.

    STEPHANIE CUTTER: In terms of the politicization of this — you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate — but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.

      Yes, Sam. I just heard that same exchange when I was coming home from work. Stephanie Cutter and her leftist cohorts are the real deal — if you want lies and chicanery thrown in your direction at breakneck speed.

    The really sad thing is that many Americans don’t really care. Nobama supporters are more concerned about free birth control and free phones. They don’t get the fact that this is either a cover-up ( my personal vote ) or gross incompetence, either of which should result in Clintons resignation and Nobamas election loss.

    However, more people did hear about this tonight thanks to the debate and now Romney can go heavy on this topic with Nobama. Biden smirking and lying- easily fact checked and it will hurt the Dems- will be a major deal for those Americans who DO know what is going on.

    Just another “bump in the road.”

    We’re all ok (HA) — just remember this:

    From the incomparable Mark Steyn.

    “Vote Obama: He didn’t cancel Big Bird, just the Benghazi consulate security.”
