VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: Pay No Attention to the Burning Flags, Stormed Consulates, and Dead Americans . . . “One of the ways of understanding the strange nonchalant response of the administration to prior warnings of trouble in the Arab Spring countries, and its contextualization of the violence on the anniversary of 9/11, is its belief that it is somehow separated from the object of the violence. Raging crowds and Islamic wrath could not possibly be connected to the enlightened Obama administration or, more generally to a U.S. that has been ‘reset’ on his watch — given the three years of laborious Muslim outreach and the long-ago departure of George Bush.”
Yeah, well, none of those “resets” have gone very well. . . .
