    Yeah, that seems wise....

Plus any other Americans in the region at risk? Do you think it is more than 3000 people? What about 10k?
    5 embassies? Were there really that many?

    Maybe the terrorists hate Democrats, too.

    Or, maybe it really doesn't matter who is in the White House?

    According to Bolton the former UN Ambassador the Consulates are suppose to have bulletproof glass and Reinforced doors. Again any reason why Clinton and Panetta would not spend that money for the safet of those workers?

    Yes, had the government been somehow complicit, that would have been an act of war. As it is, it is a criminal act and is being treated as such.

    So you were inspired by Michael Moore who posted on his website after 9/11 that the terrorists had screwed up by attacking the more tolerant “blue” people of New York and Washington, D.C., rather than the less cosmopolitan “red” backwaters of Texas and any state in the South.

    Always interesting to hear from a Michael Moore groupie.

    More likely they're taking a measured response, and weighing the options (remember we know what 'knee Jerk reactions get us into). What do YOU suggest start Bombing the whole region?

    Well 4 Embassies and a Consulate. Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Yemen, and Libya.

    Hmmmm.....but then many had no problem putting the blame on Bush while on his watch.....huh? Goose, Gander, All that!

    Even on the grounds of an American Consulate aka American soil? I thought all bets are off if you did something like that.

    I'd say it's glaringly obvious what I think.
