According to Pew Research, Muslim countries have lost confidence in President Obama's foreign policy. Confidence has eroded from 34% in 2009 to 15% in 2012. Depending upon the statistic, this is lower than George W. Bush's foreign policy support within Muslim countries in 2008.
In America, we believe that President Obama has failed in his foreign policy. He has failed as an American leader on the economy, foreign policy and domestic policy. He is an appeaser, weak and does not use the power of America in a clear and consistent manner. The handling of the murder of our Libyan ambassador by a coordinated military-style, terrorist attack has been horrific. President Obama failed to post marine guards at our consulates and embassies or even with our ambassador despite expressed threats.
Further, President Obama disgustingly used the situation to injecting his Marxist campaign slogan as the close of his official statement:
[..]The brave Americans we lost represent the extraordinary service and sacrifices that our civilians make every day around the globe. As we stand united with their families, let us now redouble our own efforts to carry their work forward.For detailed information on the events in Egypt and Libya, we refer you to fellow members of the San Diego Local Order of Bloggers:

It is clear that the attacks are not due to a movie trailer about the prophet Mohammad. Facts surrounding that film point to a false flag aimed at Israeli Jews. The movie existed on 9/10 and still exists, but the attacks occurred on 9/11.
A strong American president would state something along these lines:
Our diplomatic facility in Benghazi has been attacked. The assault took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America's commitment to truth, justice, and freedom for individuals around the globe.While I am no speech-writer, this is the type of clear statement that presents America truthfully and as the nation we are meant to be. A statement like this is not about the President, it is about the people. A statement like this does not appease, it explains the terrible mistake embraced by our enemies. It honors our dead, but does not signal weakness. This statement does not assume God to be on our side, but that we strive to be on God's side.
Assaults against ambassadors are considered acts of war and America assures you that those responsible will pay. America's fighting force is the best in the history of the world. As the Commander-in-Chief of this powerful force, it is my job to clearly state that this outrage will not stand and serves only to reinforce our resolve.
To America's allies in the middle east, consider this a request for your renewed support and a commitment to those who stand by our side. To the people of the world, America reaffirms our commitment to facilitate justice and freedom.
America has a motto, "In God We Trust." Because of this, the American people are kind and generous in peace. We destroy our enemies while protecting the innocent in war. Americans strive to be on the side of God, and Americans are prepared to stand against the forces of injustice, corruption and destruction.
Update: Examiner.com is reporting that the U.S. Ambassador was raped before being killed.
The Google Translation of the report follows:Further, President Obama has invited Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President to Meet Next Week – Refuses to Meet Netanyahu.
-"The U.S. ambassador to Libya was raped sexually before killing by gunmen who stormed the embassy building in Benghazi last night to protest against the film is offensive to the Prophet Muhammad"
Temple of Mut has further pointed to President Obama's statement that Egypt is not an ally. The man should not be allowed off teleprompter!
