WHAT WILL THE VOTERS DO IN NOVEMBER?

(Sep. 14, 2012) — The Associated Press has reported, “Federal authorities have identified a southern California man once convicted of financial crimes as the key figure behind the anti-Muslim film that ignited mob violence against U.S. embassies across the Mideast, a U.S. law enforcement official said Thursday. Attorney General Eric Holder said that Justice Department officials had opened a criminal investigation into the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other diplomats killed during an attack on the American mission in Benghazi. It was not immediately clear whether authorities were focusing on the California filmmaker as part of that probe.”
Shamelessly, a federal law enforcement official, “who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation,” leaked the name of the filmmaker to the media. It is assumed that the filmmaker has committed no crime. The federal government has no business investigating him. It certainly has no business whatsoever giving his name to the media. The man, his wife, and his children have essentially had targets placed on their backs by the Obama administration. The leak was almost certainly intentional, meant to ensure that the media will continue to focus on the anti-Muslim movie, rather than Obama’s failed foreign policies.
In the last few days the Obama administration has unnecessarily apologized to Muslims for a movie. It has essentially expressed embarrassment for our sacred First Amendment. It has reluctantly defended that First Amendment only after being shamed into doing so by Mitt Romney. It now attempts to strip a filmmaker of his First Amendment rights by telling the world who he is and where to find him.
If these shameful incidents of September 11–14 do not result in Obama being thrown out of office by the voters, there is little hope for the future of the nation.
