    Good to hear, but incidental to the point I was making regarding specific terminology.

    This is a horrible thing to say. We need defenders, not appeasers.

    We had nothing to do with how he died. We supplied them PERIOD. What they do with their weapons and how they treat their own is their issue, not ours. And now they have killed people who are completely innocent. Killed just because they are Americans. Absolutely disgusting that anyone could make this comparison.

    So, a bunch of radical Muslim's kill our ambassador, and it's the Jew's fault!

    And they wonder where people get the idea that Antisemitism is on the rise!

    Say, I wonder what would happen if someone put together an amateurish movie that insulted Christians in a crude way. Would anyone even take notice or care? But then we don't have to wonder because Hollywood does it all the time.

    So, you see, there is the difference. One group is civilized and the other is not. The fault lies with those who immediately resort to violence when they feel insulted.

    did you know the CIA has agents working in all major media outlets and cause stories to be slanted based on political and hidden agendas? This means people like you could fall victim to buying into the attackers being something they are not. They could have been paid mercenaries for all we know (you know like camel riding Blackwater types dressed up as blood-crazed Islamic Fundamentalists)
    Yeah, you might be right~!

    I'll bet a lot of people never thought of that angle.

    Be better prepared. It was within the realm of possibly that something like this could take place on the anniversary of 9/11. The US should have anticipated and planned for it.

    What jihadists want you to believe about Libya - CNN.com

    What the Jihadis want you to believe about Libya.

    Excerpt:

    The attack apparently occurred because in recent days, the al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri posted a video online calling on Libyans to avenge the killing of al-Qaeda's second in command, Abu Yahya al-Libi.

    According to our own sources at Quilliam Foundation, the attack was the work of roughly 20 militants, prepared for a military assault. It is rare, for example, that an RPG7 -- an anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade launcher -- would be present at a civilian protest.

    How convenient that it happened on 9-11 too. I really don't think this had anything to do with any stupid movie.

    That issue has been raised and answered in one of my earlier posts and the Libyan government admits they were not prepared for this.
