In all honesty, it reminds me of the shenanigans they threw last year by playing chicken with the country's debt ceiling and credit rating.
So the Obama administration through their Egyptian embassy puts out a statement apoligizing for a youtube video that they had nothing to do with and Romney looks bad? We are now seeing the repeat of 1979 Iran happening before our eyes and you are concerned about Romney's statements rightly denouncing the Obama administrations lack of preparation or proper response?
Lets take a step back for a second. These attacks in Yemen, Libya and Egypt on the 9/11 anniversary were clearly preplanned and coordinated. No one thought to beef up security at our embassies to mark the anniversary? Is the Obama administration so naive as to believe his apology tour in 2009 quelled the threats against us? Then they double down by apologizing again for a youtube video that the government had nothing to do with.
