Hillary Clinton celebrates with Libyans 2 days after Murder

Celebrating Islam one day at a time...

Remarks at Reception Marking Eid ul-Fitr
Apologizing for the delay, Hillary celebrates the end of Ramadan with Libyan Ambassador in the Ben Franklin Room on September 13, 2013. The delay to the celebration was due to the torture, sodomizing and MURDER of the US Ambassador to Libya and it put the dinner off two days. But we wouldn't that want to signal any sort of breakdown in our show of respect (and some would say, love) for Ambassador Aujali, a man who supported Scotland’s release of the Lockerbie Bomber. I can't help but wonder if any of dinner choked in Hillary's throat? Likely not. She has been gaining weight and you can only do that effectively by cleaning your plate.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Good evening, and although I am many weeks overdue in saying it: Eid Mubarak. No matter how belated we are honoring Eid and the end of Ramadan, this is a cherished tradition here at the State Department. And I would like to thank all of you for being here, including the many members of the Diplomatic Corps. 
Tonight, our gathering is more somber than any of us would like. This comes during sad and difficult days for the State Department family. We lost four Americans. They were good and brave men. They were committed to the cause of building a brighter future for the people of Libya. And we condemn the violence in the strongest terms, the violence against our posts in Benghazi, in Egypt, and now in Yemen. 
The Libyan ambassador is with us tonight, and I want to take a moment to thank him for the support that his government and the Libyan people have shown to the United States in this tragedy, particularly the outpouring of feelings of grief and loss because of the killing of our ambassador. Ambassador Aujali, would you mind saying a few words...
I know that the ObamaNation has no limits, but this -- particularly in light of the timing -- pushes credulity to the breaking point for me. I know that in the world of diplomacy, you have to eat some crow. This is not the time for doing that, nor is peace at any price an option for America, because weakness in the Middle East is viewed as an opportunity.

Ambassdor Chris Stevens' last words to Libya -- before they sodomized him, tortured him, and murdered him.

Aggression unopposed becomes a contagious disease. 

"My position has always been, along with many other people, that any differences be resolved in a nonviolent way. --President Jimmy Carter
