    The Embassy is in Tripoli.. used to live directly across the street.

    The Consulate is in Benghazi. The "riot" may have been a cover for the attack on Stevens and his staff. The ambassador had traveled to Benghazi for a memorial re: 9-11.

    tell that to the judge that recently told a woman she was partially to blame for being out at that place at such a late hour.

    I mean if a woman dresses like a whore and is walking the streets doesn't mean she isn't responsible for bringing such actions ? please it's called being responsible and having situational awareness

    now I am not saying she deserves it or its acceptable but at the same time I don't feel sorry for her. I mean do you feel sorry for a drunk driver who brings on his own actions by drinking and then driving?

    If a gay guy dresses in pink and wings, and wears a cross, should he be prosecuted if a gang of phobe-thugs attack him? After all, he WAS provocative of those mindless scumbags. So we should probably charge him with some kind of a crime, right?

Listen, I am not religious in a traditional manner at all, but I understand why many people are, and it doesn't bother me in the least for people to express it, and even if I were atheistic, I would not demand that others avoid any mention of God in a gathering such as political conventions. To me, it just reeks of insecurity and juvenile defiance.

    A good number of people who self-identify as liberals, have no real concept of what they are claiming to be. Americans have managed to turn what used to be a wonderful philosophy into just another flavor of authoritarianism. There are few actual liberals even left any more.
    Excuse me. I know that the post-modern "liberal" is not the classic liberal. It also does not matter. Its what we got now.

    Yes, it has been corrupted. Regardless, it is the liberal/Democrats who profess appeasement. Who are anti-the-Christain religion-of-others.
