To the editor:

Wednesday marked the 12th anniversary of the attacks against and within the United States that offered up thousands of American lives as sacrifice to the warped insanity of radical Islam. That insanity continues. The day was also the first anniversary of the bloody and deadly invasion of the United States Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

To commemorate the occasion a powerful bomb was detonated outside the Libyan government’s Foreign Ministry building in Benghazi. The explosion shattered the calm of the early morning of 9/11/2013 and leveled one side of the building. As there as yet have been no bald-faced lies from the cabal of Rice, Obama, Holder, Clinton and Kerry. I will go out on a limb and suggest that the bombing was a preplanned act of terrorism. Once more there is nothing “spontaneous” in Libya.

Furthermore, the attack appears to have been aimed directly at the present Libyan regime and symbolically at the United States of America, as the targeted building had once housed the United States Consulate in Benghazi.

What is truly disturbing about this latest incident in Libya is what the perpetrators are conveying through their violence. We are here, we are powerful, we are waiting, and we will emerge as the next ruling faction in Libya. And, by the way, we are in complete control in Benghazi. As such we strike when and where we want and we do so with impunity.

While Barack Obama is being played once again as a wide-eyed neophyte by Russia’s Vladimir Putin regarding Syria, the real powers in Libya have reminded the world of their presence.
