WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer said that the foreign policy missteps of President Obama "created in part the international crisis in which a U.S. Ambassador has been brutally slain and all U.S. personnel abroad are now in danger."
Bauer, the chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, made the following statement:
"The blood-thirsty mobs in the streets of Cairo and Libya are further proof that the 'Arab Spring' is in fact an Arab winter. The Muslim Brotherhood is on the ascendency everywhere in the region and Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are clueless. Even in the wake of the murderous attack, our government was condemning a movie as if a creative work can ever be a legitimate excuse for murder. What a shameful statement of appeasement on the anniversary of 9/11.
"The vapid response of both President Obama and his Secretary of State refuses to acknowledge the source of the problem: the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic extremism, made possible in part by Obama's naive foreign policy. This great offense, the murder of U.S. ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three other embassy staff, comes as Obama continues to send billions of dollars to the Egyptian and Libyan regimes.
"From the day he came to office, Obama has bowed to Muslim and Arab interests around the world and denounced trusted friends, from Israel to England. Based on the vague promises of 'hope and change,' he even received a Nobel Peace Prize. But the results of his policy are a destabilized Middle East region, strained U.S. relations with numerous world leaders, and Americans increasingly in danger. It is time for new leadership in the White House."
