Meanwhile in other news in Washington, Nero (Obama) continues to fiddle while formulating his new middle east policy and deciding upon just how strongly worded of a response he intends to give the Libyans for killing our citizens and attacking out embassies both in Libya and Egypt.
Personally, I expect a strongly worded condemnation, followed by t eh reassurance that regardless of the actions of the supposed few, America remains friends with our enemies. Regardless of what they do to us and regardless of how many Americans die as a result of their friendship with the followers of Islam.
I almost can't wait to see how this story unfolds and plays out with the complicit American media today. By the time they are finished you can bet, America will be denounced for failing to recognize the sentiments of the Muslim world by allowing the film that supposedly trigger these attacks to be produced and distributed.
The White House's response marks a new low in relations between Netanyahu and Obama, underscored by the fact that this is the first time Netanyahu will visit the U.S. as prime minister without meeting Obama; PM to meet with Clinton

The White House declined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's request on Tuesday to meet U.S. President Barack Obama during a UN conference in New York at the end of the month.The White House National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor told Haaretz the two would not meet due to a scheduling conflict. "The President arrives in New York for the UN on Monday, September 24th and departs on Tuesday, September 25th. The Prime Minister doesn’t arrive in New York until later in the week. They're simply not in the city at the same time."Vietor did, however, say that Netanyahu and Obama are "in frequent contact" and that the PM would meet with other senior officials, including U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.An official in Jerusalem said that the Prime Minister's Office sent the White House a message stating that although Netanyahu will spend only two and a half days on U.S. soil, he is interested in meeting Obama and is willing to travel to the U.S. capital specifically for that purpose. The official added that the White House rejected the request and said that at this time Obama's schedule does not allow for a meeting.
