    You do have a point about the embassy, however. There should have been enough armed guards to have prevented a bunch of ragtag terrorists from launching an attack.
    Do you think 300 is rag tag? Thats Hard Corp Fighters according to the Libyans.....which is why they cannot engage them in and around Benghazi.

    As reported the Berber's militias control their own areas.

    It's unlikely they were well trained and well armed, so yes, rag tag.

    I didn't realize there were that many of them.

    According to a report I heard on NPR there were no US military present. It was agreed that Libya was to provide security....That was such poor planning.

    I think I already said it when I stated that the Obama Administration was at fault for letting security slack. Especially in and around 911. Do you think that just walking around and telling people everything we did over there in the ME was the Right Path.....now?

    I doubt we will hear anymore about Team Obama touting Foreign Policy as one of their highlights anymore.....huh?

    oh yeah. If some Congo Gangsters hit Yemen, you bet America would scramble Stealth bombers in seconds. warships parked on the Coast by morning. you're right.

    I forgot what type of people are running this country.

    Actually, in my view, the attacks were not the fault of the sitting president when they were carried out, not of Bush nor of Obama. This sort of thing happens, we have crazies around the world that hate us, and it is not difficult to come up with a way to attack the USA. I'm surprised that there haven't been more attacks during the past few years as a matter of fact.

    He's pointing out the holes in your argument. If this is Obama's fault, then that means that terrorist attacks are the fault of the sitting President. Bush was the President on 9/11, therefore...

    That's logic. I know that's something you don't like when it doesn't fit your narrow view of truth which is "Republicans good, Democrats bad."

    According to the Libyan Security forces that were there and fired shots into the Air at first, but then Saw that they were Armed with RPG's and Full Assualt Rifles, said they were Hard Corp Fighters, and retreated. One must remember these are Not Sunni Arabs fighting, by themselves in Libya.

    His foreign policy has been remarkable mostly in it's similarity to Bush's. Except for the whole "Invade people that had nothing to do with the attack on us because the dude hated my Dad" thing.
