In April of this year, President Barack Obama declared that we are no longer in a war against terrorism. His administration felt that enough of the al Qaeda leadership had been killed or captured that the terrorist organization was no longer enough of a threat to warrant a war on terrorism.
I’d like to see Obama tell that to the families of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the other three Americans murdered by Muslim extremists in Libya last week. As the flag draped caskets are being lowered into the ground this week, Obama needs to tell the grieving families that we are not at war with terrorists.
Perhaps Obama should hold a meeting with the State Department and all the U.S. ambassadors and diplomats and tell them that we are not involved in a war with terrorism or terrorists. Tell them to ignore the headlines that read al Qaeda is urging all Muslims to kill U.S. diplomats on sight.
Mr. President, convince all U.S. diplomats abroad that they have nothing to worry about from al Qaeda or Muslims in general. Tell them your buddies don’t really mean it when they issued the public declaration which said:
“Whoever comes across America’s ambassadors or emissaries should follow the example of Omar al-Mukhtar’s descendants (Libyans), who killed the American ambassador.
