    Upon learning of that in his time of presiding over the office, what did he do to change that?

    Do you think the US president is "presiding over" every US Consulate?

    Would he have been told, "Mr. President, the Benghazi consulate doesn't have bullet proof glass or reinforced doors..."? We have embassies in almost every country, sometimes more than 1 in a country, do you think the State Dept. keeps a checklist of who has bulletproof glass/reinforced doors?

    It's entirely possible that his political enemies are wrong now and have made the problem worse. They were wrong about cutting and running, wrong about death panels, about his being a socialist, a Muslim, a Kenyan, about a lot of things. No wonder they couldn't even field a candidate capable of defeating a freshman senator.

    The Republicans did come up with a viable candidate this time around. It remains to be seen, however, whether they have enough credibility left with the voters to get him elected.

    Let's get real for a minute.

    The building was leased and opened in 2006 when Bush was president and they probably had specs that included bulletproof windows. Somebody dropped the ball or got chintzy with the budget... and you expect Obama to micromanage that?

    Terrorist Attacks on U.S. Diplomatic Facilities

    TRIPOLI, Libya (CNN) -- The United States diplomatic office in the Libyan city of Benghazi was attacked Tuesday night, the embassy in the capital Tripoli said Wednesday.

    "The United States deplores the attack on its diplomatic mission in Benghazi ... we have requested the Libyan Ministry of Interior to increase its security around U.S. facilities in Libya," the embassy said.

    The embassy said the attack would not affect the U.S. commitment to Libya.

    No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, but it comes less than 24 hours after CNN terrorism analyst Paul Cruickshank predicted such an event in retaliation for the death of a top al Qaeda leader.

    A previously unknown group called the Brigades of Omar Abdel Rahman reportedly claimed responsibility for a May 22 grenade attack on an International Committee of the Red Cross building in Benghazi, which is in eastern Libya.....snip~
