    Keep in mind that 9/11 was the second attack on the WTC, the first coming during the Clinton Administration.

    Do you think the terrorists began planning this attack only when George Bush became president?

    Yep. Not all 50, mind you, but I believe it would've been more than 5 that were killed/injured.


    What about for the lack of security? Do you blame the President for that. Considering the Libyan Embassy didnt even have bulletproof glass or any reinforced doors. At the very least both Clinton and Paneeta knew of this. Why would we put people into buildings and not strengthen their General Defenses?

    No, obviously they hate Republicans, so they waited until one was in the White House.

    The administration is still in shock and unsure how to respond. They'll get the teleprompter up and running in no time.

    You cannot be comparing the two, as if context does not exist. What do you mean?

    I don't know..... how does one Equate 5 Embassies with being under attack, 3 with flags taken down and burned and destroyed, Plus having a safehouse cover blown. 4 dead at one Embassy and people on the run and uncounted for? Plus any other Americans in the region at risk? Do you think it is more than 3000 people? What about 10k?

    It wasn't an embassy.. it was the Consulate in Benghazi.. They rarely have security.

    It was an act of war, just as the assault on the embassies are today. Couple of differences though, WTC was at the beginning of Bush's term, before he had much chance to put anything into place, these attacks are at the end of the failure Obama's term, more a signal of a failed foreign policy.

    However, a more accurate analogy would be the Cole, and this. Both were at the end of Presidential terms, and could be argued that both had a signal of effecting the election. Also, if you look at it, after the Cole we responded like it was a criminal act, much like Obama is doing now, and we got the WTC attacks on 9/11/01. Now, if pattern follows I'd be looking for something big right here in America.

    It's still an act of war when you kill a Diplomat, yes?
