Apologizing to the Islamic World is a Dismal Failure

There is so much we don't know about the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed four of our people. Could the administration be trying to cover up their embarrassment about not doing enough?

One thing we do know, thanks to Fox's excellent reporter Catherine Herridge. Herridge quotes intelligence sources that the attack in Benghazi involved a former prisoner at Guantanamo.

If this is true, it is further evidence that this administration's policy of coddling and apologizing to people who want to destroy our country is a dismal failure.

What is it about these extremists so many people refuse to understand? They say their goal is to kill us, and then they kill us, and still the administration pretends they don't mean it. What is the matter with us?

The more of this we tolerate, the more of it we will get. The Islamic world believes we are weak, and when we are weak, it invites terrorism. Any questions?
