    he said in a round about way it was terrorism on sept 12th.

    i know the right is screaming about this issue but im not. its semantics and kinda foolish

    what really irks me is that the commander in chief ignored Christopher Stevens request for help on june 6th

    Well, perhaps because the GOP Congress slashed hundreds of millions from the State Dept. security budget over the past 2 years. It's all about cuts of non-essential programs, remember?

    Also, I'm sure that you are quite aware that Benghazi is the site of a US Consul.

    Our Embassy is located in the Capitol of Tripoli.

    Bigger fuck up:

    Bush ignoring CIA warnings of impending attacks?

    Obama ignoring Amb. Stevens warnings of security needs?

    So your suggestion would have been to escalate the matter by putting boots on the ground?

    Don't forget, the same day the protests in Cairo over the video were taking place. Should we have put Marine units on the ground in Egypt too?

    The ambassador foolishly traveled to Benghazi, even though he was warned against it, because he had a meeting the following morning in Benghazi, and wanted to be able to be fresh.

    I should have put more examples of CiC's failing to protect our citizens/soldiers/interests abroad.

    Did you not see my post about the budget cuts imposed on the State Dept.?

    If you are suggesting that this President left the Ambassador twisting in the wind to die, you should be ashamed of yourself.

    This Ambassador did have a group of 3 people protecting him, including two former Navy SEALs.

    How much more would have been good with you?

    How about fuck anyone who doesn't want us there?

    Time for protectionism...we can take care of our own business.

    You want help from the USA? Get your shit straight. :cheer:

    You want to live in the stone age? Good luck with that.

    I believe that the Libyan people are quite grateful to the United States for what we did to assist them. :c
