The article assumes Obama WANTS to stop the Arab Spring from becoming Anti American. I am not certain of that.
In truth I think the Arab Spring is, and has been, Anti American!

Reports surfacing that the Admin was notified 48hr prior to the attack and the WH did nothing about it.

Revealed: inside story of US envoy's assassination

The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal.

American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.

The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".

Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.

Subject--Obama uses by a mater of words with trouble- making stands in his reckless conduct instead in the foreign policy.

=====()+_-

Is that a joke--Obama knows how to harm US stand of interests by building Al-qaeda related terrors by ridding of former Libya's Ghadafi and former Egypt's M. Barak while saying US is indispensable --what he is trying to say is: that violences make US indispensable?

How is that so, that Obama comes up with saying that Egypt is not an enemy or an ally--when violence occurred against US stand there?

What he is saying also means US would take for granted to get things done by usage of words, without efforts and the right mind-set of acts.

But, by looking into all facts of turmoil and sentiments against US around the world, Obama has done much harms so far in his acts so far in foreign policy everywhere.

Only Romney who will be the new president, can give solutions to the foreign policy which is deemed and fit for all people needs.

OBAMA IS MERELY A JOKE.
OBAMA IS FULL OF FALLACY IN HIS UNREALISTIC AND WRONG DIRECTION, SO SUCH ENDEAVORED (BY HIM).

Subject--------Obama uses by a matter of words with causing trouble-making stands against US in his reckless conduct instead but not proper stand and enactment, in the foreign policy.

Only Romney who will be the new president, can give solutions to the foreign policy which is deemed and fit for all people needs.

Just thought that I would stick this news article in here for so that we can see how successful the Arab Spring was. We have to remember that Egypt and Libya belong to Obama and Clinton. This whole Mid-East fiasco and resulting deaths belongs to them.

The Lebanese news organization Tayyar.org is reporting that the murdered American ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was raped prior to his killing September 11, 2012.

The Lebanese news report cited the Agence France-Presse (AFP) broke the story when given the information by an unnamed senior member of the Libyan Interior Ministry.

Tayyar.com also reported via Google translation from the original Arabic, Ambassador Stevens:

"...was killed and representation of his body in a manner similar to what happened with Gaddafi, such as murder."

According to the BBC, when the former Libyan strongman Colonel Moammar Gaddafi was initially captured:

Video: US Ambassador Raped Prior To Murder.
"Still images from an analysis of amateur video footage taken in the moments after Col Gaddafi's capture appear to show him being sodomised with a pole or knife."

The Washington Times has posted a video clip (left) reportedly originating from the Libyan Free Press confirming the sodomization of Ambassador Stevens prior to his murder.

As translated by The Washington Times, the Libyan reporter stated:

"Libya - USA Ambassador in Bengazi sodomized and killed by his own al-Qaeda puppets."

The Times also has posted an update stating that as of 3:35 AM EST today:

"The Lebanon report on the murdered U.S. ambassador in Libya, Christopher Stevens, remains unconfirmed by the AFP."

SUBJECT:::_______Obama would say anything and WOULD do as well, to just get himself fired in a democracy, because people are not stupid, and are the politics as well, in a free country.

==========09_+)(_+++++

THERE IS NO KING IN A DEMOCRACY, SO OBAMA IS NONE OF KING STATUS WHILE HE IS TO BE FIRED FOR BEING THE ONE OF INFINITE STUPIDITY WITHIN THE UNIVERSE.

INFINITE STUPIDITY EQUALS TO THE SO HUGE MAGNITUDE LIKE THE UNIVERSE--maybe he thinks if all the terrorists have wings to fly to the moon, if there are ones like bin Laden, he would get them in the moon then.

The Constitution of USA was engineered by his ancestors' help in Africa, but not the Christians.

Obama says everything as clumsy thing, from jumping to conclusion by calling no ally to enemy about Egypt to say, that US is indispensable because of him, for the pioneers who did the work and the founded foundation of Christian god faith, were ALL SUDDENLY DEMOLISHED BY HIM TO REPLACE WITH MUSLIM FAITH THEN.

FOR EVERYTHING HE SAYS AND DOES, HE says it and does act on it by speaking in so tedious way, as not true, the truth and accuracy for a free democracy.

Obama would say anything and does as well, to just get himself fired in a democracy, because people are not stupid, and are the politics as well, in a free country.

That is Obama's intent to dis-assemble and destruct every hard working individual's work, to break them all to pieces as the villain in a democracy, and that will be his self-destruction as not the king.

As of right now, the President is handling the crisis well, while Romney played politics & demonstrated his mindset is stuck back in the Cold War.

President Obama will likely win reelection November 6th. Early voting starts soon, the President is ahead, and there are fewer and fewer undecided voters every day.

And the clock is running down.

Romney does not have any expertise in foreign policy....it was arrogant and stupid of him to jump the gun, and diss our President before all the facts were known....If he were POTUS, and jumped the gun, at every crisis, we would be in fear at every imagined slight His rational for aspiring for the Presidency is suspect....clearly he is not in any way prepared, but why? He has not ever given a reason, except he was expected to attain the highest office, first from his Father, and now his wife...but he doesn't have the 'fire in the belly' if he did, one would certainly have studied and learned foreign policy...he has had many years to educate himself.
