Libya, Egypt and Our Foreign Policy Mess

A group of thugs stormed the American embassy in Cairo. They were allegedly upset about a movie on the internet that features their so-called prophet Mohammed. They tore down the American flag and ran up another flag that bears a strong resemblance to the al Qaeda flag. And what does our great president do? His State Department apologizes for offending their religious sensibilities.

Is there anything for which this president will stand? Our embassy was attacked. We give billions in aid to the Egyptian government. It is that government, now run by the Muslim Brotherhood, which should be apologizing to us.

And now the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others have been killed. What will the president do now? Will he apologize to the killers?

And here's more: the Obama administration urges Israel not to attack Iran, which is building nuclear weapons to attack Israel. We urge restraint of Israel but say and do nothing about Iran other than worthless diplomacy. What a foreign policy mess.

I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
