Obama, same day bomber was granted citizenship and Benghazi attacked: ‘Our country is safer’

On Sept. 11, 2012, after just over 10 years in this country, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev took the oath to become a U.S. citizen.

An oath that reads, in part:

I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; … I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same …

As it turns out, on the same day, just a few hours after President Obama would say “our country is safer,” al Qaeda terrorists attacked the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

While campaigning for reelection, CNS News reports, Obama went to the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2012, to give a speech commemorating the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and tell us that he was successfully bringing the post-9/11 wars to a conclusion.

Our country is safer,” Obama said.

“Most of the Americans we lost that day had never considered the possibility that a small band of terrorists halfway around the world could do us such harm,” Obama added.

He would go on to say that we’ve “dealt a crippling blow to the organization that brought evil to our shores.”

“Al Qaeda’s leadership has been devastated and Osama bin Laden will never threaten us again,” Obama continued. “Our country is safer and our people are resilient.”

Four Americans would die in Benghazi later that day at the hands of al Qaeda, as noted by CNS News. They included Amb. Chris Stevens, State Department Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
