I would say that Obama (probably thanks to Hillary, who is a hawk) has done pretty well, except for Syria and Iran.

    It's quite unlikely that I'll be voting for Romney.

    That said, I fully support both Romney's position on the event and his criticism of the embarrassment and indecision that was illustrated by the white house retracting an apology.

    The White House and the entire US Government is an apology waiting to happen, they are both a huge embarrassment

    That doesn't mean crap to me. I'm not a believer of "tourist assessment".

    This is a sad and disturbing day. On the anniversary of 9/11, America is once again under assault by the Muslim jihad. U.S. embassies were attacked and our citizens killed by radical Islamic extremists while our own Embassy in Egypt apologized for any offense a private movie may have caused to Muslims.

    And where was our President?

    He was silent. All yesterday. Nothing.

    I get so weary of ridiculous, unfounded conspiracy theories.


    And I get so weary of people defending blood-crazed Islamic Fundamentalists!

    This is the reality that the present Obama administration has created in the Middle East. This is the true face of the "Arab Spring".

    The Obama administration didn't create this, they inherited this mess from Bush.

    actually the US government is to blame and the US government is the one ultimately responsible for this guys death. Kind of like the boarder patrol agent killed with the gun from the fast and furious program.

    As for him being drug through the street and killed, the US has done the same thing (Or supported and encouraged similar acts)

    Re: Libya: Assault on U.S. consulate in Benghazi leaves 4 dead, including U.S. Ambass

    I think we have two distinct antagonistic issues at play here. Both worrisome, but they should not be confused.

    1) First is the basic protests, where folks took to the streets to blame the US for the film that disparaged Islam. Most troublesome to me is that the media in Egypt had been airing news about the film of late, announcing the organized protest, etc. for a week ahead of time. This indicates the politicians (The Muslim Brotherhood) deliberately stoking anti-American hostilities. My understanding was that in Libya, the media was not as provocative.

    The above got no one hurt though.

    2) The attack on the embassy appears to be a deliberate retaliatory assault by Al Qaeda affiliated militia. Timed to use the cover of the protest as much as possible, but otherwise having little to do with it. The retaliation would seem to be either the killing of the #2 Al Qaeda in Libya a few months ago, and possibly to avenge Bin Laden.
