Thanks a whole lot, Barack. Your heavily endorsed Arab Spring just scored another Islamist takeover -- this time in Mali. Obama's foreign policy is so dangerous, yet he is being hailed as a great leader in this area because he had the nerve to permit our military to take out Osama bin Laden. What president would have denied such a request?
Reality is so far removed from what the American people are being told. Thanks to Obama and his push against Mubarak and his advancing the cause for al Qaeda in Libya, the Arab Spring has inflammed the Muslim world, and the Islamic caliphate is being formed right before our very eyes, at least the eyes of those who are bothering to pay attention. How does that make for a more secure world?

The Islamist Takeover Of Mali
"Islamist and al-Qaeda forces, along with former Gadhafi mercenaries, have wrested control over Mali’s entire northern territory with the recent seizure of a key Malian city, an unsettling outcome which marks just one of the ugly after-effects of Libya’s civil war.
The recent seizure of Timbuktu, located 600 miles north of Mali’s capital of Bamako, by rebel forces battling the Malian government represented the government’s last major stronghold seizure in the north. Having already lost the northern Mali cities of Kidal and Gao only days earlier, the capture of Timbuktu has marked the effective end of the Malian government’s control over its northern territory, a desert region larger than France.
More importantly, there are now fears that a rebellion that began in January as a separatist movement is being overtaken by Islamist and al-Qaeda factions. These factions are not interested in a creating a separate secular state but rather are intent on turning the entire country of Mali into a Sharia-run Islamic state."
