Let’s just get this straight once and for all…
The U.S. embassy attacks in Libya and Egypt back on 9/11/12 were not about the anti-Islamic film that nobody saw.
That’s according to none other than Libyan President Mohamed Magarief, himself. In an interview with NBC News, he noted that the video, “The Innocence of Muslims,” had been available for a while by the time the attacks happened.
In other words: “Reaction should have been, if it was genuine… six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September. They chose this date, 11th of September, to carry a certain message.”
No offense whatsoever to Magarief (though the same can’t be said about another President. *Cough. Cough. Obama.*), but duh!
If you know the facts, which our political figures such as President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should and doubtlessly do have at their disposal, Magarief’s conclusion is something far short of rocket science.
Yet American leaders continue to dismiss the attacks as practically justifiable due to a film that nobody’s really seen even to this day.
This isn’t smart. It isn’t brave. It isn’t even particularly safe.
It’s just pathetic.
