The attack on the American Embassy in Libya that resulted in the death of our ambassador and three other Americans can only be described as horrific.
Why did that film producer have to make a film that derided the Muslim faith? With the 11th anniversary of September 11th just passed, this was the last thing that should have been done. There is already enough anger directed at the U.S. from the Arab world, and this film will only cause that anger and rage to worsen.
President Barack Obama needs to close every American embassy in the Middle East and recall all of our ambassadors and other diplomatic staff immediately. It is no longer safe for our people to be in any of these countries.
He also needs to respond swiftly and effectively to this terrible act of murder. While the government of Libya may not have played a role, it needs to be warned by the president that these types of barbaric acts will not be tolerated, and that the Libyan government needs to take more responsibility for protecting Americans living there.
