Intelligence Chair: Obama and Clinton ‘Gave Permission Slip to Al Qaeda’At minimum, the U.S. ignored all the warnings that our Libyan consulate was at risk. And Americans died as a direct result of that misfeasance.

(CNSNews.com) - House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers (R.-Ala.) said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in broadcasting a television ad in Pakistan apologizing for a privately produced YouTube video that criticized Islam, had given al Qaeda and other “bad actors” a “permission slip” to do bad things.
Rogers also said there was a “high degree of probability that it is an al Qaeda or al Qaeda-affiliated group” that attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. [link]
And to have Hillary's people launch an apology campaign in Arab countries after the fact added to the disgrace.
One can only imagine what the al Qaeda leadership is thinking these days.
So many targets; so little chance of reprisal ...
