Who Dat saying the U.S. State Dept. can’t protect diplomats?–WHO DAT?!

OK so some diplomats get butchered by terrorists as U.S. security is ordered to "stand down." But folks, pay close attention: those are U.S. diplomats!

Terror-sponsoring diplomats, on the other hand, get top-notch, round-da-clock protection from the State Dept. on the U.S. taxpayer's dime. No "standing-down"' when it comes to protecting an official from an official "State-Sponsor of Terrorism!"

No SIREE!...especially while she's visiting sacred historical sites her father, uncle and god-father lanned to blow up!

And especially when this terror-sponsoring diplomat--while standing under the banner of the Stalinist-terrorist whose lifelong dream was to incinerate America-- is attending a rally in New York hailing the FBI's currently "Most Wanted Domestic Terrorist" Asssata Shakur! and calling for the freedom of another five Communist terrorists convicted by U.S. juries (Cuban 5!)....

    Humberto, you don't get it, but then you're no "expert." It's OK to spend American taxpayer money and resources on protecting Mariela when she visits the US because, for one thing, she eats out at local restaurants and is thus, you know, a stimulus to our economy. Didn't you see the photo of her with Chef Pernot at his restaurant in Philly? He couldn't have looked any happier if Michelle Obama had dropped by--and who knows, maybe Mariela is a better tipper than MO. Needless to say, such nuanced expertise in analyzing these things is beyond some Cuban-Cajun with a gun fetish. Still, we know you do the best you can.
