I say we hire Blackwater to guard the embassies from now on. They did right by the State Department before.

The militants knew where the safehouse was.
This could have been bad luck but also due to a security leak/betrayal of trust.

The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.
Ahem! ... 9/11 was PLANNED!!! ...
Get REAL, will you, please .. The world is a VERY dangerous place and inspite of the threats Americans face abroad due to years ... decades ... of our LEADING from the front ... there are not enough men and women in uniform to defend EVERY outpost ... There is soooo much violence in Africa ... almost EVERYWHERE ... We have limited resources and our Treasury can not protect EVERYONE from EVERY terrorist ... Sad to say but IF another war-mongerer gets into the White House like Governor Romney who wants MORE Defense spending building war ships ... we WILL take a GIANT step backward ... WARS are not the way forward ... and IF people REALLY thought about what they are advocating ... they would realize just how WISE and thought-filled OUR great President is ...
He is a VISIONARY ... a man of DESTINY which the WISE folks on the Nobel Committee could SEE was the man to lead us ALL "FORWARD" ...
PLEASE OPEN YOUR EYES ... do NOT vote for more of the same as in going BACKWARD to the FAILED POLICIES of the Bush Administration ... Policies which are more responsible for the plight we find ourselves in today ... DEEPLY in debt for not paying for the BUSH TAX CUTS ... for TWO WARS (one completely UNnecessary) ... ALL paid for by US ... SAD, indeed ... when people FAIL TO SEE what REALLY got us in the pickle we are in ...
PLEASE OPEN YOUR EYES!!!
I guess since 9/11 was CLEARLY planned ... the buck then CLEARLY stopped with Bush by YOUR logic ...
This is a dangerous world ... and IF we engage EVERY credible threat, we wouldn't have enough men and women in uniform to DEFEND us or anyone else ... and we would BE at war ALL over the world ... OPEN YOUR EYES ...
That kind of foreign policy would cause our nation to be bankrupted in short order and lose ALL respect in the world ... not to mention the loss of precious lives ... Come on! ... OPEN YOUR EYES and USE some LOGIC, PLEASE!!!
