Nakoula Nakoula, Barrack Obama, or … Louis Farrakhan?
In this commentary, I argue that it was President Obama’s unwillingness to enrage (again) the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that paralyzed American defenses against the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic personnel in Benghazi.
Whom to blame for the U.S. Ambassador death? This burning question may have an easy answer.
Clearly, the “folks” (this is how the President Obama characterizes them while talking in public) who killed the Ambassador and three other Americans are responsible for their deaths. But a bunch of rebels, even if armed with submachine guns and mortars, might not have succeeded in their barbaric attempt if the U.S. authorities lived up to their ostensibly topmost priority of protecting lives of the American diplomatic personnel abroad.
So, why did CIA and the U.S. Military not deliver a lethal blow to the attackers when the consulate and the safe house in Benghazi was under siege, despite the calls from some of those who were fighting against the attack there? After all, both organizations are well known for their remarkable ability to air-strike with surgical precision the enemies of our nation. And as we have learned lately, the Commander-in-Chief and his cabinet were totally aware of what was going on there as the detailed video surveillance was available to them in real-time.
From the first day after the attack, President Obama and his administration exercised their talents in deflecting the responsibility for their own incompetence on somebody else. Using skillfully deceptive language, they made many Americans believe that it was the anti-Islamic video that caused the violence and the deaths that resulted form the wide-spread “spontaneous” unrests. The subliminal message there was that the U.S. government could not do anything to contain these unrests, short of massacre of hundreds of participating civilians. But even taking for granted that the said incompetence left the ambassador and three Americans sitting ducks in the cross-hires of the Muslim militants’ guns, there is still a question that begs for an answer: what contributed to the impotence of this administration in dealing with military-style attack on its diplomatic post to the point that they just stood-by and watched?
Contrary to what the Prez was implying, it was not the video that caused the “spontaneous” protest of Benghazi Muslims. There is no shred of evidence that would prompt a rational person to believe that such a protest actually took place September 11, 2012 in Benghazi. On the contrary, all the evidence available now clearly shows that there were no “spontaneous” demonstrations at the time the military-style attack on the U.S. Consulate was executed, or in any time immediately before that attack.
So, it was not the man being accused of producing the said video, Nakoula Nakoula, who played any role in the deaths of four Americans. Therefore, he does not deserve to be blamed for the Obama administration’s lack of action that could save their lives.
The clue of understanding why President Obama, who brags at times about killing Osama bin Laden, did not send any air backup to the defenders of the consulate and safe house lies in one of the statements he made while addressing the United Nations’ General Assembly. He said: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” Many commentators expressed their utmost surprise with such an intimidating declaration. After all, for non-believers Mohamed was but a normal human being and slandering him, even if reprehensible, would still be a lawful exercise of free speech protected by First Amendment. (Mind you, that some quite offensive depicting of Jesus has been recognized by the federal government, or its agencies, as an expression of art.)
The puzzle remains a puzzle no more if one takes into account that there is a large organization in the U.S., the Nation of Islam, that might have a pivotal effect on the coming presidential election. Its leader, Louis Farrakhan, has already warned President Obama to not take for granted millions of black Muslim voters who may not vote for him, unless he dares to “be a little black” (a quote form one of Farrakhan’s advices to President Obama) against the will of his white advisors.
The first warning of this kind from Farrakhan came in the aftermath of bombing Libya by the U.S. forces in April 2011. Outraged and angry as he can be, Farrakhan in defense of his Libyan Muslim brothers said to the Prez: “Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?” (see the reference, below). President Obama, apparently, took Farrakhan’s objection very seriously. Blacks, some nine out of 10 of whom tend to vote black, constitute more than 10 percent of the American electorate, so a perspective of turning many of them away must have been a petrifying perspective for the Obama campaign.
So, the Commander-in-Chief was not to make that “mistake” again out of concern for his political survival. As a result, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans are dead. This is not only the “unraveling of President Obama’s foreign policy” (a quote form Rep. Paul Ryan’s opening statement at vice-presidential debate with V.P. Joe Biden), but the ultimate price some of us have paid for president’s political gambit and his bowing to the demands from his most faithful constituency in order to avoid putting his re-election at risk. Oddly enough, the President had guts to play outraged with Mitt Romney’s suggestion (at the third presidential debate) that the reason for Obama’s Benghazi fiasco was political.
It is a formidable lesson for all those who let the “liberals” impose on us the diversity and multi-culti idiocy, which became such a self-perpetuating liability for this nation. Prepare for more Farrakhans and their followers who will, eventually, paralyze our nation to the point that we won’t be able to survive as a country. This, I am afraid, has been the main objective of the architects of the American “perestroika” that they have implemented in the aftermath of President Kennedy’s assassination.
