Lt. Col. Ralph Peters: “This is the First Time We’ve Had a President Who’s an Outright Coward”
As much as Obama & Co. want Benghazi to just go away, there are people working hard to make sure the issue isn’t just swept under the rug. And on Fox’s America’s Newsroom, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters was one of them, refusing to mince his words when he blasted the president for his utter failure.
The former military intelligence officer and Soviet Union specialist suggested that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus should be subpoenaed again “to pry this Stalinist administration open.”
… “Obama”, he added, “wasn’t interested in saving American lives” during the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
“He didn’t want to militarize the situation because that would call more attention to it,” he said. “I mean, the White House made political calls, strategic calls, but not patriotic calls.”
… “First of all, this is a pattern for President Obama,” he said. “He can’t make timely decisions. He has no courage. Whether it is Benghazi or Syria, or now Vladimir Putin, for the first time in our history – we’ve had great presidents, terrible presidents, most somewhere in between – this is the first time we have had a president who’s an outright coward.”
This is the problem we come across when a president is elected who not only has no military service, but who also has never had to work for anything a day in his life. We end up with someone like President Pantywaist — a man who not only has no convictions, but doesn’t have the courage to act on them even if he did.

The temptation to look for scapegoats is a human failing, too. Those who hate the military gleefully seize on every crime committed by a soldier, sailor or Marine as evidence that war causes crime, as though it were unheard of for civilians to rape, murder or steal. Those who hate religion seize on crimes committed by the faithful as evidence that religion causes pedophilia, as though child abuse were the exclusive province of the Catholic church.
Never mind that civilians and atheists commit crimes too.
