The embassy was not unprotected. Two marines died in the attack, in addition to up to 10 Libyan security people.
We probably didn’t know about these people who launched the attack because when we do know about such people, we kill them. A possible motivation for this attack could have been the previous killing of a senior Libyan Al Qaida leader in Pakistan in June.
Virtually everything you say, Craig from VA, is wrong.
With supporters like you, is it any wonder Romney made such a fool of himself in front of the whole world?
But you might be pleased to know there are a few people who agree with you: Rush Limbuagh, Donald Rumsfeld, Sarah Palin, Reince Prebus, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum. A veritable who’s who of failures, hatemongers, and cooks.
There was warning that the attacks were coming. Even a week before.
Nothing was done. Great “leadership”.
Your last paragraph shows how much you fear losing the election coming up.
Romney, by getting everything wrong while attacking Obama and his administration immediately, should definitely have done considerable damage to his campaign amongst decent people in this nation.
As he was walking away from the podium at the press conference where he accused the president of apologizing to the people who assassinated one of his diplomats and three other Americans Romney smiled. Let’s repeat that: Four Americans had just died on American soil fighting to keep Americans safe in the Middle East and this man who wants to be our president was actually smirking at the thought that he was scoring political points that only he could see. As if he had just made some sort of “Nailed It” moment on the big political stage.
The American people should never forget this. So many try to claim that Romney is a really decent guy who is just slightly awkward as well as very private, yet the more we learn about this man and his personality it becomes clear that he is not decent and continually acts like a sociopathic bully. He’s clearly interested in only ONE thing: winning. And this is pretty much what the GOP has become too: The Party of Bullies. Graceless. Cruel. Constantly lying and not even caring whether or not people realize they are lying. Simplistic. Aggressively opportunistic. Lacking all sense of decency and propriety.
At a time when Americans are under attack, Romney and those now out there supporting the DISGUSTING comments he made have proven themselves of being dishonest, callous, and transparently opportunistic.
Case in point:
Limbaugh: Al-Qaida “gave up Osama”
He says the terrorist group wanted to “mak[e] Obama look good” so he would remain in the White House
Smirking insanely vicious idiots is what too many rightwingers have become. If people like this can actually win the White House in November, America is surely toast.
You rock! Tell us what you really think.
Craig from Virginia,
You forgot to write - in all caps - the words COMMIE, SOCIALIST, MARXIST, KENYAN and TRAITOR.
Other than that, you covered the repeatedly disproven Fox talking points like a true, pre-programmed, unthinking, unquestioning lemming.
There’ll be extra cud in the grazing pasture for you tonight.

We pulled out of Iraq before the country was stabilized
So, in your estimation, how many more decades should we have kept 150,000+ U.S. troops in Iraq, waiting for the Iraqis to train and deploy even *ONE* company of soldiers or security forces?
We were there for TEN YEARS and Iraq still, to this day, has not deployed ONE TROOP UNIT, but “were still making progress.”
Craig from Virginia wrote:
Otto von Bismarck said, “People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war, or before an election.”
So, are you saying that Romney is not “people” or that he’s not lying? Has to be one or the other, using your own statement and claim.
So which is it?
Gary: It is interesting to see how you attack me rather than the facts about what happened in Libya and the rest of the Middle East. It is Obama’s actions, his naivity about how to deal with people who want to do us harm, his utter lack of any kind of solid policy to deal with actual threats to our citizens and our allies, in particular, Israel.
When you mention Iraq, keep in mind that the U.S. has maintained troops in South Korea for more than 50 years and in bases around Japan since the end of World War II. Iraq is far more vital to U.S. interests than Afghanistan in both an economic and geopolitical standpoint. Iraq provides a wedge between our enemies of Syria and Iran. If Iraq falls to Muslim extremists, as has occurred in Egypt, then our ally Israel will be virtually alone.
Last night, Obama refused to cancel his campaigning in Las Vegas to return to the White House to meet with his national security advisers to stay on top of the situation. The night before, when our ambassador in Libya was out of reach to the State Department, Obama went to bed rather than stay informed. You are the one who throws names out rather than rationally discuss my points, which, by the way, are out there to learn in media other than Fox News.
To conclude, when you are ready to discuss the Middle East diaspora that we find ourselves in due to a confused and disjointed foreign policy vacuum — which is evident in the fact that we cannot protect our embassies and diplomats and our apologies to American freedom of speech and religion. If you want to be angry at anyone, direct your focus to those who killed our ambassador and burned our consulate.
“When you mention Iraq, keep in mind that the U.S. has maintained troops in South Korea for more than 50 years…”
Technically the Korean war isn’t over, and, oh BTW, there will be some of our troops in Iraq for decades. Afghanistan is where al Qaeda lived and trained. That is where the bulk of the work should have been, instead if Iraq in the first place.
“If Iraq falls to Muslim extremists, as has occurred in Egypt, then our ally Israel will be virtually alone.”
So what you’re saying is that Mubarak and Gaddafi were great allies and benevolent leaders for their people?
The Egyptian and the Libyan people actually rebelled against their governments. The Iraqis, other than when Bush 1st left them to twist in the wind, did not.
You fringers out there are all warm and fuzzy about Democracies until the people elect a leader you don’t like.
Romney did nothing wrong. Period. Our State Dept. knew something was up, yet did nothing to protect our embassies. One had no Marines whatsoever; the other had a handful, but had no rounds in their weapons. Then Hillary wants to talk about how despicable the film slamming Mohammed was, when in fact, we now know it was a ruse for a much bigger, preplaned assault. This thread didn’t belong in the moderate column. Transfer it way, way left.
“…but had no rounds in their weapons.”
You have no idea what you are talking about. If I were you I would find another source of information.
It could have been much worse.

What, then, are the characteristics that make an MSA likely to spawn successful neologisms? It’s well established that Coach Outlet Twitter has a higher rate of adoption among African Americans than other ethnic groups, and so it perhaps isn’t Coach Outlet surprising that they now find that innovation centres, as well as being highly populated, have a higher proportion of Coach Outlet African Americans, and that similarity of racial demographic can make two urban centres more likely to be linked Coach Outlet in the influence network.
