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?
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.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
