As we all know by now, our President sat in the pews of the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago for more than 20 years. In those years, he had to have listened to the pastor of that church, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, give sermon after sermon in which he blamed the U.S. for almost every ill that exists in America and the world, today. In one infamous speech -- where he says blacks should not sing "God Bless America" but, rather, sing "God Damn America" -- Wright clearly claims that the 9/11 attacks are a result of America's own "terrorism" in the world. Further, Wright's well-known words of "America's chickens have come home to roost" is just another reiteration of this blaming of America.
So, we have a President who must have accepted these words and, subsequently, the beliefs and principals behind them. After all, if he didn't, he "should" have left that church. I think this is why, one of the first things that Obama did after taking office, was to launch his world "apology tour". A tour that never once recognized "any" good that this country has done.
Now, along comes the Benghazi mission attack where 4 Americans were killed. Certainly, if you have a Rev. Wright mind set, the first thing you're going to do as President is blame America for the attack. Therefore, its only logical that Obama would set his sights on the anti-Mohammed video as the true reason for the killing of our people on that day. Never did any Muslim hatred for American principals even cross his mind. Never once did our President remind the people of Libya and Benghazi that America was largely responsible for the freeing of that country from Gaddafi's rule. All that Obama did is blame our value of freedom of speech as the reason for the death of our own people. This, in essence, was our President's figurative reiteration of Wright's words: "America's chickens have come home to roost".
