Mitt Romney Makes Huge Foreign Policy Blunder
The GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney is proving once again that he is not ready for prime-time, especially when it comes to foreign policy. He jumped the gun in attacking President Obama and the diplomats in the Middle East for his amateurish response to the violence, which was strictly political grandstanding.
Mitt Romney was quick to criticize the President after the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens and 3 staffers were killed during an attack at the American Consulate in Benghazi. The Consulate was overrun by a crowd of hundreds who fired machine guns and launched rocket-propelled grenades. Stevens died of asphyxiation, while becoming the first U.S. ambassador killed since 1979.
The attacks in Libya and Cairo were a response over a movie made in the U.S. by an Israeli Jew named Sam Bacile, who has since gone into hiding. The film attacks Muslims and calls “Islam a cancer”. The movie was promoted by an Egyptian Christian campaigner in the U.S. who is extreme anti-Muslim. The trailers, which were seen over the Internet, enraged Muslims all over the world.
Romney was quick to blast the President and a statement put out by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, which condemned the movie claiming that they were outraged over the anti-Islamic film. That statement was put out before the attacks in Libya, which Mitt Romney did not take into account. He jumped the gun in attacking the President without all the facts and made a giant political blunder.
President Obama has sent 50 marines in to Libya to protect Americans and he has beefed up security around all U.S. embassy’s in the world. Only Sarah Palin and Reince Priebus supported Mitt Romney while all other leaders in the GOP condemned his statements. Mitt Romney proves once again that he is not ready to sit in the big chair.
