    Wait, isn't the Democrat party bragging about Bin Laden being dead and GM is alive? Any chance that might have had something to do with it? Consider how that looks from the other side. Obama is running for reelection, Biden goes out and shouts "Bin Laden is dead" to cheers from the crowd, and we wonder why this happened?

    I have some reactions to this, but I don't think we've seen the last of it. I'm expecting more attacks in the come days. As far as I'm concerned Biden and Obama are at least partially responsible for this.

    You miss the point.

    You are not a Democrat, and you are not blaming the movie-maker, and mitigating the acts of the Islamists. < -------- my point.

And living in all this fear, look at what we've done to ourselves. We've succeeded in depriving ourselves of freedom to much greater degree than any terrorist organization could ever hope to accomplish.

    It's time to stop being a bunch of pussies.
    Totally agree. FISA renewal vote probably coming during lame duck

    If the DNC claimed that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel, I believe that would qualify as boosting terrorist hopes. Given that the DNC is likely to take control of the white house, I could see terrorists being pretty happy about such a position.

    Yes, they are throwing out their propaganda to excuse government force against our right to free speech. Just like the right throws out its propaganda to excuse government force against our other rights.

    Here's the point. We cannot afford any longer to look at this as a Left vs Right problem. This is a Government vs Freedom problem and if all we do is point fingers at the other side, we are going to find ourselves slaves upon the land our forefathers conquered.

    I don't really think terrorists are sitting around in their living room watching the RNC/DNC and cheering/booing.

    Claiming that Israel no longer has a capital is pretty fkd up, let alone it was done by one of our major parties and the holders of the white house (and that they will probably win it again, according to polls). I'm sure terrorists would use such a position (representing ~50% of the US) to their advantage in regard to recruiting and brainwashing.

    Our decades of interventionism in the Middle East fuels their recruiting and brainwashing well more than the Democrats platform and some words.

    Obama has now increased security for Installations World Wide.....and is sending Drones into Benghazi. Evidently he has figured it out that the Attacked was now planned.

    Now it gets weirder... There is no record of Sam Bacile.

    Sam Bacile claims he is an Israeli citizen, but Israel has NO record of his citizenship.

    I don't care if the cat is Rhodesian. It doesn't take away from the fact that American were attacked and killed.
