Governor Romney, please ask Obama these questions during the foreign policy debate
Governor Romney:

In the upcoming foreign policy debate I expect the moderator to ask Mr. Obama softball questions he can answer with well-rehearsed talking points. If the moderator does not ask pressing questions, perhaps you can challenge your opponent. Here are some suggested questions:

There were 13 threats and two attacks against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in the six months leading up to the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Why, Mr. Obama, did you not increase security there?

According to a State Department whistleblower, security at the consulate was actually reduced in the six months prior to the September 11 attack. Why, Mr. Obama?

Why, Mr. Obama, did you believe a handful of Libyan nationals would be sufficient to protect the lives of Americans working at the consulate in Benghazi, a city that had become arguably more dangerous after the overthrow of Moammar Gaddafi than it had been in the past?

In your eagerness to overthrow the Gaddafi regime, you supplied the Libyan rebels with weapons. Did you even know the identities of those rebels? How did you know you were not supplying al-Qaeda with weapons? Can you assure the American people that none of those weapons were used in the attack against the U.S. consulate? How can we be certain that the four Americans were not killed with American weaponry?

Mr. Obama, tell us again why it was in the interests of the United States to intervene in Libya’s internal affairs? Is the loss of four Americans and the loss of confidential security documents in the nation’s best interests?

One year ago, Mr. Obama, you said we did not have to worry about the radical Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt because it had little power. The Muslim Brotherhood has since won the elections, installed a president, now controls the country, and is threatening to tear apart Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel. Tell us again, Mr. Obama, why you thought it was a good idea to oust President Mubarak, an ally of the United States.

Mr. Obama, while you talk frequently about improving U.S. relations with the Muslim world, radical Islamists are persecuting and killing Christians in Egypt, Nigeria. Sudan, and elsewhere. You have neither condemned those actions nor done anything to stop them. Why not?

Mr. Obama, how could you possibly have demanded that Israel return to its pre-1967 “Auschwitz borders” as a pre-condition for negotiations with the Palestinians? Do you not understand that those borders are utterly indefensible? Why do you demand concessions from Israel, but not from the Palestinians?

Mr. Obama, why have you treated the Israeli prime minister with such disdain and contempt? Why did you make rude comments about him to French president Sarkozy?

Mr. Obama, why did you select anti-Semitics like Susan Rice, Samantha Power, and Hillary Clinton for important positions in your administration that deal with foreign policy and Israel?

Mr. Obama, why does your administration refuse to defend Jerusalem as Israel’s permanent capitol? Why does your State Department say it is subject to negotiations?

Mr. Obama, you claim you have imposed “tough sanctions” on Iran, yet agreed to waivers to allow Russia and China to bypass those sanctions. What good then are the sanctions?

What did you mean, Mr. Obama, when you told the Russian president you would be “more flexible” after the election? More flexible about what? What secrets are you keeping from the American people?

Mr. Obama, what was your role in Operation Fast and Furious? If you had no role, why did you claim executive privilege to withhold White House documents? If you have nothing to hide, why are you hiding it?

What was Attorney General Eric Holder’s role in Operation Fast and Furious? Why has he not been fired for incompetence? Why have you not apologized to the Mexican people for an ill-advised scheme that resulted in the murder of several hundred Mexican citizens? If the buck does not stop with Mr. Holder and with you, where does it stop? Why has no one been disciplined or fired because of Operation Fast and Furious?

Mr. Obama, you once said, ‘I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.’ Do you still believe that the United States is no more exceptional than any other nation on earth? I believe the United States is the greatest nation in the history of mankind. Can you tell me why I am wrong?

I would be very grateful, Governor Romney, if you can force Mr. Obama to address some of the above issues. In fact, America’s future may depend on it.

Thank you,

Don Fredrick
