This is about the time for Obama and his minions to say we shouldn’t rush to judgment. When your ideological pals do something bad it really doesn’t help the cause, huh?
By the end of the day, however, it had become clear that the group that appeared most likely to have been behind Friday’s bombing was a Marxist organization–the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C). High-ranking Turkish officials, including Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, declared that Ecevit Şanlı, the suicide bomber, was a member of the group. He had been incarcerated between 1997 and 2002 on terrorism charges.
In a lengthy, rambling statement posted online on Saturday, the DHKP-C claimed responsibility for the embassy attack, called the U.S. “the murderer of the people of the world” and warned the Obama administration to “get your bases, your missiles, and your Patriots the hell out of our country.” It added: “It is the Syrian people who will decide how, and by whom, Syria will be governed. The AKP government is a lackey to imperialists who seek to overthrow al-Assad, who refuses to bow his neck to them… We condemn the use our land for the imperialists’ interests against Syria.”
