Regarding Obama’s failure to acknowledge yesterday’s anniversary of the 1998 al Qaeda attacks on the American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania: I don’t think that people are grasping what an enormous oversight this is on Obama’s part.
First of all, he wants to be president of the United States—the person who pledges to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic. Well, ten years ago one of our enemies foreign launched preemptive strikes against America and two of its allies, Kenya and Tanzania, with the allies taking the brunt of the attacks. It was clearly a prelude and build-up to 9/11. Second of all, Obama is descended from a citizen of Kenya.
But the acknowledgment “slipped his mind.”
Oh yes, and there was even a commemoration ceremony in DC yesterday for the fallen.
I guess it’s true that Obama and alleged relative Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga aren’t in constant communication because guess what Odinga was doing yesterday.
The fact that there has been not one public word from Obama about this is unimaginable. It's another drop on the rock.
