Romney Remarks On Attack In Libya (Video)

Do all things foreign seem foreign to Mitt Romney?

He says he’ll save the American economy while banking in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands. He says he’ll create American jobs as his company Bain Capital outsources jobs to China. He insults the Brits during the Olympics. He denigrates the Palestinian people as culturally inferior on a trip to Israel. He fails to even mention 190,000 American troops serving in Afghanistan at his convention speech. He still calls Russia “the Soviet Union” and labels it as America’s No. 1 enemy.

It’s Romney’s Libya gaffe now on the anniversary of 9/11.

On Sept. 11, as the nation mourned the heroes and victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, U.S. Ambassador to Libya John Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed by religious fanatics who stormed the American consulate in Benghazi with grenade launchers and machine guns.  The Obama and Romney campaigns were supposed to be on hiatus for one mournful day.

Some fanatical Islamic cleric were incited to murder because of an obscure film made by an Israeli-American filmmaker.

Several hours before the murders, as anti-American protests swelled, the U.S. Embassy in Cairo condemned “the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”

But the White House quickly said they never approved that statement, claiming, “It doesn’t reflect the views of the U.S. government.”

But by 10 p.m. Boston time, before the last beacon of light dimmed at Ground Zero, before Taps had finished echoing through Lower Manhattan, before the last grieving family member had gone to bed on a politics- and politician-free 9/11 commemoration, Romney headquarters issued an embargoed statement to the media on the barbaric attacks.

The campaign okayed its release at 12:01 a.m. Sept. 12.

“I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi,” Romney said. “It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

Truly awful.

Political,  opportunistic, and exploitative.

Mitt Romney will learn what Rudy Giuliani, learned when he ran for President, the American people do not like politicians trying to exploit political mileage from the blood of our dead.
