Your Opinion: Embarrassed by shutdowns at embassies

Your Opinion: Embarrassed by shutdowns at embassies

August 6th, 2013 by Steven Brown, Holts Summit in News

Dear Editor:

Instead of hunkering down and waiting to kill those that would threaten to kill us, the U.S.A. (at Obama's order) has shut down 22 embassies in the Middle East due to the threat of a terrorist attack?

Who's the winner here? What kind of message does Obama send to those that would murder us at will for no other reason than we are not like them?

Instead of "bring it on," hunt them like the rabid animals they are, we shut down and hide? Embassies are American Soil, and we cower behind locked doors and hide?

I am ashamed and embarrassed in front of the entire planet. Can you spell Benghazi? After that, our embassies' are still not protected?

Again, how's that hope and change working out for you uninformed voters and guilty white folks?
