    I doubt we will hear anymore about Team Obama touting Foreign Policy as one of their highlights anymore.....huh?
    The Bush administration had years to reinforce the doors and glass, but you blame the current President's administration? And how did they let security slack? Think realistically, do you expect the President to deploy soldiers to all of our embassies in the Middle East/Africa (more than 30 of them) for one day?

    Well we now know they Attacked this Libyan Consulate in June of this year.....so again i am wondering why from June until now. The doors and glass were not taken care of? Could somone have been actually penny-pinching......Nah. This is just straight up incompetance!

    Yeah, no big deal really, eh? Look Ditto, this is a failure of foreign policy, period.

    Really.....well considering Obama has moved our fleets all around and with more activity. Who's cost is higher? Did you forget Obama dropping bombs in Yemen, Somalia, Palistan, Course Afghanistan. Course there was the Libyan Civil War thing.


    Lets See Bush.....Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama.....Iraq and Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Somolia, plus sent in some Advisors to hunt down Kony. In and around Sudan.
    What about him backing the play to remove Gbagbo in the Ivory Coast......while Sneding in Advisors to go hunt down Kony?

    Oh and lets not forget that Soft Aid to the Syrian Rebels.....huh?

    The government wasn't complicit? They are that certain already?

    Just how does Clinton remarks come face to face with reality. She says this is just a small group. I don't call 5 countries rioting at 4 of our Embassies a small group. While killing 4 and taking out our safehouse and a consulate in Libya.

    I see Rice can talk about how she knew Stevens while still condemming Assad and blaming him for killing innocents. Do you think she will ever say anything about the FSA killing Christians and using Children to launch Offensives. Why isn't she talking with the Libyans about when they retreated why didnt they get our people out with them?

    They have already taken a measure response.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said “How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?”

    It's all so puzzling to leftists.
