    Well, you can't blame him. He didn't even know what was happening when he went to bed. Sadly, when I went to bed, I think I knew more than the President did. Christopher Stevens, U.S. ambassador to Libya, killed in Benghazi - latimes.com

    Oh geesh, only a matter of time before the great racism card was played I guess. Look buddy, this thread is not about the Iraq war. Go down to the archives and satisfy your morbid fascination with that subject and quit your incessant whining.

    Edit: this post was meant for the clown. Sorry about that.

    I suppose the US did invade Iraq and lied about WMDs and Saddam links to 9/11, so why not attack Indonesia for example as retaliation to the Lybian embassy attacks?

    And then the US can perhaps set up a 15,000+ personell, 600 building emabssy in Jarkata just like they did in Bagdad?

    What are you going to do now?
    I don't understand you, Klown. You seem hellbent on dragging Iraq and our invasion of it into this conversation when it doesn't pertain to the topic at hand. I'm not encouraging boots on the ground, or more wars/interventions, I was telling Mya that it's not the President's fault that Stevens is dead.

    I agree, that is sad, I'm not saying he wasn't ignorant of the situation, I'm saying that he couldn't have prevented it.

    Why do you think the USA is the most despised nation on the planet?

    At least Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush retaliated when American embassies were attacked on their watch.

    Stevens was appointed by the president. Why was he not better protected? Was it because president Obama did not want boots on the ground. Maybe he was appeasing the Libians. I don't know and frankley I do not understand why Stevens was in the second largest city of a post revolution country without proper protection.

    From what I've read, the protocols were followed. How was the safe-house location discovered?
