The assaults upon the American diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya Tuesday night are outrageous and deeply disturbing. The murder of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks reminds us that America remains at war with radical Islamists.
No American should be confused about the fact that these attacks were directed by enemies who hate us and who are determined to defeat us. It is a tragedy that so many of our elites refuse to acknowledge this fundamental reality.
The American people are angry at those who kill our diplomats, attack our embassies, burn our flag, and demand we censor ourselves to avoid offending them.
In this election, the American people will look for someone who will stand up for America, stand up for our diplomats, stand up for the flag, and stand up for freedom.
