A foreign policy of apology

After yesterday's events - the attacks on our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi, which were apparently intended to distract from the main target, US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, who was murdered in a well-planned and -executed attack - it seems that Obama's State Department has actually found a foreign policy worse than appeasement: a foreign policy of apology. As if the attacks were our fault.

So, do you think if Obama had been POTUS on December 7, 1941, he would have apologized to the Japanese?


  1. Incompetence? General disdain for the history and policies of the United States?

    Maybe, President Obama could have apologized for sending Commodore Perry into Edo bay, forcing the Japanese to open their ports in face of the US military. Which in turn caused Japan to attack the United States 90 years later.

  2. Now that I have slept, I can answer Yes, President Obama would attempt to apologize for anti-Japanese sentiments that lead up to the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor. President Obama already wanted to apologize for the atomic bomb being dropped in Japan
    ( ).

  3. If what I heard regarding Ambassador Stevens is true, that he was left with two unarmed Marines and no reputable host country protection- unless a risk like that is supposed to be de rigueur of foreign diplomats- that's the worst judgment I've seen yet by this Presidency. All while he's got time for Letterman and Vegas, but no time to talk to Israel about Iran?

    Ok- no big revelation here, I don't like the judgment of our President. I've already got an opinion and and attitude. Tell me where I'm missing the bus on these two examples? Please. Explain how I am mistaken.
