Bill Clinton's legacy yields 4 dead Americans

From AP:

    A U.S. Navy destroyer was shadowing a hijacked yacht with four Americans aboard when a pirate fired a rocket-propelled grenade, followed by bursts of gunfire. U.S. special forces scrambled onto the occupied vessel only to find the four Americans fatally wounded.

Bill Clinton's disastrous foreign policy is on display, 11 years after he left office. After a relatively minor skirmish with warlords in Mogadishu, good ole Bubba ordered U.S. troops to flee, resulting in the world's only country with no government. In the words of the CIA World Factbook, Somalia's government type is: "no permanent national government."

Thanks, Bill.

And for everyone who thinks the so-called pirates are actually pirates, let's keep in mind where the ransom money goes:

    In August 2008, when the pirates became especially active off the Horn of Africa, Andrew Mwangura, head of the East African Seafarers’ Assistance Programme, declared that Al-Shabaab, a group of jihadists in Somalia, use piracy to fund their jihad: “According to our information, the money they make from piracy and ransoms goes to support al-Shabaab activities onshore.”

AP didn't tell us this. In fact, the liberal news source is using the common liberal tactic of ignoring the real problem (Islam) or shifting the blame. I wonder why they really do this? Are they pushing multiculturalism, or is it just classic liberal hatred of the United States? From AP:

    But the conventional wisdom in the shipping industry had been that Somali pirates are businessmen looking for a multimillion-dollar ransom payday, not insurgents looking to terrorize people.

Right, "conventional wisdom." It was similar "conventional wisdom" to blame the Fort Hood shooting rampage on vicarious trauma or the ever popular conservative foreign policy. Many liberals, including the infamous Ward Churchill and Van Jones (an aide chosen by Obama), believed conservative foreign policy flew planes into the World Trade Center, more or less.

The chickens really did come home to roost for Churchill and Jones -- Churchill was investigated by the University of Colorado and fired, and Jones was dismissed when the American public finally learned his views on 9/11. The Fort Hood shooter has finally been acknowledged as a deranged Islamist. And yet somehow liberal media would still rather blame everyone and everything, even themselves, rather than point the finger at the actual culprit -- a Dark Age death cult.
