Where Were The Marines Or Was Obama Over-Confident Or Simply Negligent?

After the US consulate in Benghazi was stormed, burned and their ambassador and another diplomat and two other consulate staff died, the United States is now talking and acting tough by sending warships and a contingent of fifty marines to hunt down the killers.

But where were the marines in the first place? Why was the consulate not well protected in the first place?

Or was the Obama administration over-confident? Was Obama thinking that his constant attempts to engage the international Muslim community (good as this may be) sufficient to ensure that their consulates would be safe? And especially on the anniversary of 9/11 attack?

Well, he has obviously thought wrongly.

And why had the American embassy in Cairo issued a statement profusely condemning the maker of the film that had allegedly insulted Islam and Prophet Muhammad but not at the same time making it clear that they will not tolerate any attempt to kill anyone in revenge?

Obama cannot just distance himself and his administration from the Cairo statement after the fact and said that it had not been authorisied by his administration in the first place. This is like not taking responsibility for the acts of your subordinates.

What bullocks!

That is why I wrote that Obama's days as the President of the United States might be numbered

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
