IMPEACHMENT ?? IT’S NOT ABOUT A FILM . . . IT’S ABOUT ISLAM’S HATRED FOR THE ‘GREAT SATAN’ AND USING ANY OPPORTUNITY AS AN EXCUSE TO VENT THEIR ANTI-AMERICAN VENOM . . .
IF WE HAVE TO BUY OUR ‘FRIENDSHIP’ WITH THESE PEOPLE, HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH ? AT WHAT COST ? AND WE TURN OUR BACK ON OUR TRUE ALLY IN THE REGION – ISRAEL . . . AND THE LORD GOD OF ABRAHAM WILL NOT FORGET TO REPAY THOSE WHO IGNORE THE PLACE WHERE HE CHOSE TO PUT HIS NAME FOREVER . . .
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will lobby lawmakers this week on the need to keep billions of dollars in aid flowing to Egypt and other countries caught up in a spasm of violent anti-American protests across the Muslim world.
The State Department said Clinton intended to meet with Congress later this week to discuss the protests, which saw U.S. diplomatic missions attacked and the U.S. ambassador to Libya killed amid fury over a film produced in the United States that many saw as an insult to Islam.
Republican lawmakers are calling for an investigation into the attacks amid suspicions in Republican circles that the Democratic administration is trying to tamp down inquiries about the events as the November 6 presidential election looms.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, had hoped to hold a public hearing on Egypt this week. She reluctantly called it off after the Obama administration refused to send any witnesses and instead offered a private briefing for lawmakers, a congressional aide said.
