The policy that has hastened the political rise of Islamic radicalism and the attacks on diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya in the wake of the so-called “Arab Spring” was hatched in the “ivory tower” of the Obama administration, charged talk-radio host Michael Savage today.
“We’ve gone from the ivory tower to the loss of power, literally in one administration,” he told his “Savage Nation” audience.
Savage pointed to three women in the Obama administration who helped advance the policy that ousted Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi and created the political vacuum in which radical jihadists attacked the U.S. Consulate today and killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three American staffers.
Secretary of Stare Hillary Clinton, Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice and Special Assistant to the President Samantha Power convinced Obama to go to war with Libya based not on American interests, but on a doctrine championed by leftist billionaire activist George Soros, Savage noted.
As WND has reported, “responsibility to protect” is based on the belief that sovereignty is a responsibility not a right and focuses on prevention of crimes against humanity rather than defending America’s borders.
Savage noted he predicted in his book “Trickle Down Tyranny” that the Obama policy would help bring the Islamic radicals to power.
The decision to go to war against Gadhafi, Savage wrote in his book, “reveals just how flimsy Obama’s foreign policy was in the testosterone-free zone known as the Obama White House.”
Savage recalled Hillary Clinton’s boast in an interview with CBS News after Gadhafi was killed last October.
“We came, we saw, he died,” she said, laughing.
Savage, meanwhile, praised Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for accusing Obama of apologizing for American values.
Romney criticized the Obama administration’s “disgraceful” initial response to violence in Libya and Cairo.
“I think it’s a terrible course for America to stand in apology for our values, instead when our grounds are being attacked, being breached, the first response of the United States is to be outraged,” Romney said. “The statement was akin to an apology and I think was a severe miscalculation.”
Romney said America should “never hesitate when we see something which is a violation of our principles.”
Savage said that in the “ivory tower occupied by the academics in this administration, real men are not welcome, so it has fallen to three women.”
“You’ve only seen the beginning of what’s coming,” Savage warned. “The tyranny they have unleashed in the Middle East will come home to haunt us here in this United States.”
