    Op-Ed:

    By Prof. Phyllis Chesler
    1/18/13

    During the third debate of the 2012 presidential campaign, Mitt Romney talked about Mali and the danger al-Qaeda represented there. The Obamamedia laughed and derided Romney, carrying Barack Obama’s water and continued advancing the fraud that Obama had decimated al-Qaeda, even though al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists had taken over an American consulate and killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya just weeks prior.

    Surprise!!!! Al-Qaeda in Mali is a serious enough threat that the French, THE FRENCH!, have invaded Mali to fight them there.

    It looks like Romney was indeed correctly focused on foreign threats, al-Qaeda is not decimated but in fact very much alive, and the Obama administration is as blind, or more likely deceptive, about Mali as it was about Benghazi.

    Or is Obama giving cover to Islamists in Mali like he does in Egypt and the Palestinian Authority?

    the lies about this will begin shortly...until then, there will be a brief intermission while the progressives open another website for instructions on what doctored reports they should use to refute this.

    Please stand by.

    Well, I think it is a trick story. I mean....The Phrench....attacking someone?

    Seriously, what was the first clue that this is bogus?

    Of course it doesn't mean anything that this President has focused an historic amount of our military, economic and diplomatic power on sub-Sahara Africa, does it? Nor is it to be noticed that the right just recently condemned him for sending the US Army into various African countries to support those governments in their fight against Islamic fanaticism.

    As if on cue, now they want to criticize him for not doing enough and hope nobody notices the duplicity!

    >Mali

    Terrorists in another 3rd world shithole? Do I care?
    No. Unless they attack U.S. interests they can rot in that awful place.

    True, their uranium is all there too. It's not about 800 militants posing a threat, it's about the uranium and interests of France.
