Nonsequitur: Ingratitude, Appeasement and Shame

September 12, 2012

Victor Davis Hanson has perhaps the best summary and analysis of the attacks on our embassies in Egypt and Libya.  The bottom line is that the “Smart Diplomacy” of the Obama administration has failed, and now murderers and rioters “… feel their government either supports them or can’t stop them” as they commit violence against Americans.

The official statement of Egypt’s Prime Minister after the Cairo riot seems to support Hanson’s observations.  Prime Minister Hisham Kandil did not call for punishment of the rioters, but rather called for the US government to take action against the independent producers of the film that “sparked” the violence.
