Election 2012: Your stories
Mr. President, I am sorry but you’ve lost your credibility.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: You've got to be clear, both to our allies and our enemies, about where you stand and what you mean. You just gave a speech a few weeks ago in which you said we should still have troops in Iraq. That is not a recipe for making sure that we are taking advantage of the opportunities and meeting the challenges of the Middle East.
Now, it is absolutely true that we cannot just meet these challenges militarily. And so what I've done throughout my presidency and will continue to do is,
Number one; make sure that these countries are supporting our counterterrorism efforts.
Number two; make sure that they are standing by our interests in Israel's security, because it is a true friend and our greatest ally in the region.
Number three, we do have to make sure that we're protecting religious minorities and women because these countries can't develop unless all the population, not just half of it, is developing.
1. Some rumor has it that people who attacked the American Embassy in Libya were freed by Morsi, Muslim Brotherhood president who control Egypt now. It is no secret that Hamas is part of the global organization for Muslim Brotherhood, just today a barrage of rockets fired from Gaza into Israel seems to signal a new-found confidence by Hamas that it can risk bearing the brunt of Israeli military action, and still survive since Morsi, Muslim Brotherhood president in Egypt, announced today solidarity of Egypt with Hamas.
2. See video for Egyptian President Morsi who is supported by Obama administration joins Preacher in Prayer for Dispersal of the Jews.
3. The constitution drafted now in Egypt neglected women’s rights. Everyday we hear news of burning churches and displacement of Coptic Christians in Egypt.
“The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions” Internal documents for Muslim brotherhood.
For decades this claim was well founded, starting with Ronald Reagan’s clarity in seeing the Soviets as enemies to be defeated, not accommodated. President Reagan’s plan for the Cold War was, “We win, they lose,” and he pulled it off because he was not under any illusions about who “they” were. “Andrew McCarthy”
Mr. President, I voted for you last election, I am sorry but you’ve lost your credibility and lost my trust.
