On December 7, 1952, the 11th anniversary of Japan’s bombing of Pearl Harbor, President Harry S. Truman spent the day sending his personal greetings of thanks and praise to a Japanese group.
No. That didn’t happen.
But Obama did the equivalent of that yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, by sending his personal greetings of thanks and praise to an Arab group, the Arab Forum on Asset Recovery that’s having its first meeting today in Doha, Qatar. Among the meeting’s attendees is Eric Holder. The Arab Forum’s goal is to recover assets stolen by formerly autocratic regimes, including Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya.
Joel B. Pollak reports for Breitbart, Sept. 11, 2012, that Obama is “using the day to issue greetings to the Arab Forum on Asset Recovery, seemingly oblivious to the importance and solemnity of the day, as well as the context of his message.”
In his greeting, Obama makes no mention of 9/11, the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, or the role of Qatar-based Al Jazeera in broadcasting radical anti-American propaganda. But the POS does give thanks to the Emir of Qatar–“His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani”–and praises the inspiring democratic example of the Arab Spring, which happened to leave the absolute monarchy of Qatar untouched, as well as led to Muslim extremists taking over governments, most notably in Egypt.
Breitbart News also points out Obama’s hypocrisy.
To honor the day, both Obama and Mitt Romney had pledged not to campaign today. So what did the POS do?
He’s having Bill Clinton campaign for him in Florida!
