    Fear of pissing off the natives maybe. Nevertheless, the safety of our own comes first, I don't care what it takes.

    This disgusts me to no end. We have a cover up from the CIA, the State Department and the administration itself. The more information that comes out, the worse and worse it looks for the Obama administration and their cover up. This makes Watergate look like a pimple. This cannot be allowed to go unpunished. How anyone can vote for Obama after this is beyond me.

    Tyrone Woods and the other two who ignored the ridiculous orders to stand down should be given medals and promotions. They knew the orders were wrong and that American lives were at stake. They saved lives by not following those orders. Had they followed them, there would have been more than 4 killed that day.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    this is why conservatives are not taken seriously. You guys think you know the truth when in fact, you are really hoping that you do.

    so sad.

    Nah, it'll disappear in a week or two and none will be the wiser. Just like every other time Uncle Sam shirks responsibility for the sake of appearance.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Certainly it's the good life for you down there in Southern California, but in many remaining parts of the United States, this is something you wouldn't want to get caught attacking and ridiculing Americans about. I understand it's easy to get caught up in and feel pretty cute in your flippant liberal nonsense, might be best for you to just remain silent in a foreign culture this time. Realize you're a guest and always will be, don't dirty the house up.

    The OP is the dumbest ****ing post I've read in a long time, and that's saying a lot. Any of you who have any sense know damn well that there is far too much information that is unknown. Anyone with military experience is completely stupid to believe that all things are known by those who were not involved with a need to know. No way, no how. I call triple bull****.

    I don't propose to know what is true. I do know that MUCH of what was reported to have occurred in Vietnam in the early days was well mastered bull****. Even the White House was duped. We have NO idea as to who is telling what to whom and why and most of y'all are just bending over and asking for more. Now is different how?

    Think people!

But if officials thought Stevens and the others were safe in a panic room, it would make sense to wait and not jeopardize the lives of more people.
    That's much too reasonable of an explanation for what went down, especially for this thread. I'm going to ignore it and chose to exclusively watch Fox news, believing that Obama caused the death of Chris Stevens because he had a copy of O-boy's Islamic Kenyan birth certificate.

    BTW: do you have a link for that?
    Fox has been reporting it pretty steadily since it broke and WaPo finally did a story on it today too. I'll see what I can find that will add to the story. There is this:

    This is why libs are not taken seriously, deny, deny, deny and then when you can deny no longer say "so what".

    Whether there was a decision to not send help or not, why did they not even shell or missile target the mortar that was shelling the compound. It was laser painted and a sure thing. This had to be a political thing. How could it not be?
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.
