Obama Said 'Don't Jump To Conclusions'...Which Means The Odds Are Good That An Islamic Extremist Is Behind The Attack

M2RB:  Winston Churchill & Iron Maiden

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,

we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;

we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”

After Fort Hood:

‘We don’t know all the answers yet and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.’ 

- President Obama, 6 November 2009

After the underwear bomber:

‘[D]on’t jump to conclusions.’ 

- President Obama, 28 December 2009

After Times Square:

‘People shouldn’t jump to conclusions.’ 

- President Obama, 1 May 2010

After Boston Marathon:

‘We still don’t know who did this or why. People shouldn’t jump to conclusions. 

- President Obama, 15 April 2013

Did Obama say ‘don’t jump to conclusions’ after Joe Stack flew his plane into the IRS building in Austin?

No....and he wasn't a Tea Partier, but he might have been.

Did Obama say ‘don’t jump to conclusions’ after Bill Sparkman faked his suicide to make it look like he was killed by some anti-government group?

No....and he wasn't a Tea Partier, but he might have been.

Did Obama say ‘don’t jump to conclusions’ after Tucson?

No....and he wasn't a Tea Partier, but he might have been.

Did Obama say ‘don’t jump to conclusions’ after Aurora?

No....and he wasn't a Tea Partier, but he might have been.

Did Obama say ‘don’t jump to conclusions’ after Newtown?

No....and he wasn't a Tea Partier, but he might have been.

Why is it whenever the odds are great that a radical Islamist is behind an attack, Obama cautions us to ‘not jump to conclusions’?

And, it hasn't only been Obama...

After Benghazi:

Well, as we said yesterday when we were on background, WE ARE VERY CAUTION ABOUT DRAWING ANY CONCLUSIONS WITH REGARD TO WHO THE PERPETRATORS WERE, what their motivations were, whether it was premeditated, whether they had any external contacts, whether there was any link, until we have a chance to investigate along with the Libyans. So I know that’s going to be frustrating for you, but we really want to make sure that we do this right and WE DON’T JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS. That said, obviously, there are plenty of people around the region citing this disgusting video as something that has been motivating.”

- State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, 13 September 2012

'Well, first of all, Chris, we are obviously investigating this very closely. The FBI has a lead in this investigation. The information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. That what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video. People gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately are quite common in post-revolutionary Libya and that then spun out of control...But we don’t see at this point signs this was a coordinated plan, premeditated attack. Obviously, we will wait for the results of the investigation and WE DON'T WANT TO JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS before then. But I do think it’s important for the American people to know our best current assessment.'

- Ambassador Susan Rice, 16 September 2012

Of course, THE ADMINISTRATION DID JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS. It blamed a terrorist attack on a youtube video made by an Egyptian Coptic Christian in California.

In an interview with Michael Smerconish on 26 October 2012, President Obama said:

“What’s true is that the intelligence was coming in and evolving as more information came up.  And what is true.  This is something that the American people can take to the bank—is that my administration plays this stuff straight. We don’t play politics when it comes to American national security.  As information came in we gave it to the American people. And as we got new information, we gave that to the American people.

But I think our goal would be to bring them to justice. I was not personally aware of any request. Obviously we have an infrastructure that’s set up to manage requests like that,” in reference to the State Department.  But we’re going to find out exactly what happened.  Ultimately, though, any time there is a death of an American overseas, I want to find out what happened, because my most important job as president is keeping the American people safe.  And we will get to the bottom of what happened, and we’re going to make sure most importantly that those who carried it out, that they are captured.

What my attitude on this is is if we find out there was a big breakdown and somebody didn’t do their job, they’ll be held accountable. Ultimately as Commander-in-Chief I am responsible and I don’t shy away from that responsibility.

My biggest priority right now is bringing those folks to justice.  I am absolutely prepared to kill those behind the assault, but would prefer to capture them and bring them to justice. And I think the American people have seen that’s a commitment I always keep."

TO DATE:  ZERO 'folks' responsible for the deaths of the first Ambassador murdered since Jimmy Carter was President, Ambassador J Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and former CIA agents and senior security operatives Tyrone S Woods and Glen Doherty, who defied 3 stand-down orders to go to the assistance of their screaming brothers-in-arms or any of the dozens of Americans, foreign nationals, and locals injured and maimed have been brought to justice.  ZERO.

On the other hand, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was arrested in the middle of the night by 10 Federal agents, perp-walked in front of a gaggle of international cameramen, and thrown in solitary confinement in a Federal detention centre in Los Angeles on an alleged probation violation where he remained because the government denied him bail.   Nakoula was ordered to jail without bail on 27 September 2012, with the judge citing probation violations including 'lying to probation officials,' 'danger to the community' and 'lack of trust in the defendant.'  On the day after the Presidential Election, 7 November 2012, Nakoula was 'made a deal he couldn't refuse':  Plead guilty to four charges in a plea bargain with a year in prison and 4 years' suprevised probation or face a full trial on a litany of charges and/or being deported to Egypt...where an Egyptian Court had sentenced him, along with several other Coptic Christians and anti-Islam preacher Terry Jones, TO DEATH in absentia for defaming Islam. 

As we know, our Dear Leader said before the full Assembly of the United Nations:

'The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.'

- President Barack Hussein Obama, United Nations, 25 September 2012

The First Amendment protects offensive speech. It doesn't protect your feelings. Nakoula's film IS offensive, as well as outrageously amateurish. IT IS ALSO FULLY-PROTECTED CONSTITUTIONAL SPEECH.

Who cares about the First Amendment, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula's constitutional rights and personal safety, the safety of others, and the right of the American people to be told the truth by their elected servants when there's Obama's election to win and members of misogynistic, racist, homophobic, bigoted, child-abusing, xenophobic, tribalistic, antisemitic, Christophobic, maniacal, thin-skinned, homicidal, suicidal, totalitarian, 7th century death cult to which to grovel and arm?
Certainly not those that I write about below:
Actually, I am going to repost 'The Neo-Puritans, Prohibitionists, & McCarthyites Have Their Ban Flags A'Flying!' just so that you can see Dhimmitude in all of its glory as performed by the new wearers of the 'Cheese-eating surrender monkeys' crown!

M2RB:  Iron Maiden

There goes the siren that warns of the air raid
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborn
Got to get up for the coming attack.

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines
Remove all the wheelblocks
theres no time to waste
Gathering speep as we head down the runway
Gotta get airborne before it's too late.

Running, scrambling, flying
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high.

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers
Let of a sharp burst and then turn away
Roll over, spin round and come in behind them
Move to their blindsides and firing again.

Bandits at 8 O'clock move in behind us
Ten ME-109's out of the sun
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them
Heading straight for them I press down my guns.

Rolling, turning, diving
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die
Run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high.

Hey, since "ban" is the word of the day.  Let's ban:

"GM is alive and Osama bin Laden is dead!"


 Don't Prosecute The Filmmaker & The Pastor.  Prosecute Obama & Biden!

MIKE BARNICLE: Given this supposed minister’s role in last year’s riots in Afghanistan, where people died, and given his apparent or his alleged role in this film, where, not yet nailed down, but at least one American, perhaps the American ambassador is dead, it might be time for the Department of Justice to start viewing his role as an accessory before or after the fact.

DONNY DEUTSCH: I was thinking the same thing, yeah.

Well, Terry Jones didn't make the film.  Oops!

According to the National Journal, "The California resident behind an anti-Islamic film that sparked violent protests in Egypt and Libya, which in turn lead to the death of four U.S. diplomats, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, remained defiant on Wednesday and stood behind his work, the Associated Press reports.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a 56-year-old Egyptian Coptic Christian, who is a permanent US resident living in California, said he believes that “Islam is a cancer.” He financed the two-hour movie with help from more than 100 Jewish donors, spending roughly $5 million, the AP reported.

“This is a political movie,” Nakoula told the AP. “The U.S. lost a lot of money and a lot of people in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we’re fighting with ideas.”

After hearing rumors that the video was a Hollywood blockbuster that would be shown throughout the U.S., protests broke out, leading to the death of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other embassy staff.

President Obama said on Wednesday that, “the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.”

The film’s almost 14-minute trailer, which is still on YouTube, shows people acting as violent Muslims, taking their aggression out on Christians and women. The actors, who are predominantly white, are covered in dark makeup and use thick accents. The film also depicts the prophet Mohammad, who is subject to several slurs.

Afghanistan banned YouTube on Wednesday, to prevent its citizens from watching the controversial film, Reuters reports.

“We have been told to shut down YouTube to the Afghan public until the video is taken down,” Aimal Marjan, general director of Information Technology, told Reuters.

Then, from the UBER-PROG, Guardian:

Libya: there is good reason to ban the hateful anti-Muhammad YouTube clips

The material I have viewed, said to be linked to the US embassy attack, is purely and simply an incitement to religious hatred

I have just watched a YouTube video of clips from a film which, it is claimed, provoked the attack on the American embassy in Libya. It is impossible to completely authenticate them at this stage, or exclude the possibility the clips could have been doctored in some way by the uploaders. However, we do know that the film has been linked to riots in Egypt and the attack in Benghazi in which four embassy staff, including the ambassador, were killed. It's a really nasty piece of lying propaganda: something which deserves to be called hate speech, since hatred is its wellspring and the propagation of hatred is its goal.
It is – obviously – blasphemous to Muslims. Less obviously, it offends against the central values of liberal democracy. The justification of free speech put forward by John Stuart Mill is that the remedy for bad speech is better speech. But this presupposes an interest in truth, and perhaps some agreed means of deciding on it. It's a system that breaks down when confronted with determined and malevolent liars.
The film portrays Muhammad as a pathetic fraud, a child molester. He is an unwanted bastard at birth, and only gains his self-confidence after an older woman summons the cringing young man to her tent and pushes his head under her skirts where he nuzzles her crotch. When he emerges, he has seen visions.
The dialogue reminds me of a Jack Chick comic. In one scene Muhammad tells a noble Jewish elder, "Pay the extortion or go to Palestine". The elder spits at his feet and walks off.
The mother of one of Muhammad's wives weeps and calls him "a child molester". He is shown running his hands over a silently protesting pubescent girl. Then he pushes her on to her back, kneels between her legs, and says, "For you, I am cancelling the adoption. Islamic nation forbids the adoption for Zeinab. That is the next verse in the Qur'an."
Cut to an old woman, saying she is 120 years old "and in all my young life, I have never seen such a murderous thug as Muhammad … he sells the children as slaves after he and his men have used them". The camera cuts back to show her feet are tied with ropes to a camel; as it moves forwards, she is hoisted into the air. The watching Muslims LAUGH – in great capital letters, pantomime villain style. The production values of the video as a whole are those of a backyard performance of Ben Hur. In the great battle scene, the Muslim hordes sweeping across the desert are represented by six camel riders.
"Whoever refuses to follow Islam have only two choices: pay extortion – or die!"
Later, the prophet is shown pronouncing judgment: "Pull off his arms, and then his legs. And then his head. And do it in front of his beautiful wife, Sophia." In the event though, the victim is tied to a stake and allowed to make a speech begging God to give his descendants the land of Palestine before being stabbed with a sword. The lovely Sophia is then dragged off to the prophet's bed.
This is only 13 minutes. It's hard to imagine the full two hours. The way I have told it may provoke incredulous giggles, but there is an element of intended nastiness in it that dries up laughter.
Some people will want to defend the film as critical of an idea, or of a belief. But I don't think that will do. No Muslim could think of Muhammad as he is portrayed in the film, and very few can suppose that Islam commands them to behave the way the Muslims in the film do. The beliefs criticised are entirely imaginary. If any other group but Muslims were the target this would be obvious at once.
This film is purely and simply an incitement to religious hatred. It stokes hatred in both of its intended audiences – Christians and Jews in the US, and Muslims in the wider world. If jihadi videos are banned in this country, and their distributors prosecuted, the same should be true of this film and for the same reasons.

Now, for some important questions:
Were the Egyptians screaming about the film? 
No.  No.  No.
Were the Libyans screaming about the film?
No.  No.  No.
This is what they were screaming:

“Obama, Obama, there are still a billion Osamas!”
