    Apparently that is no problem for PoweRob or any other Obama supporter and their double standards

    What happened in Benghazi was a tragedy. As were these 13 Benghazi's that happened on Bush's watch that you don't seem to give a damn about. And the "coverup" this far is in your head and being fed hyperbolistic biscuits by Fox News.

    If you read any of my post on the topic you'd have read that I don't think it was right and it shouldn't be done. And I also find the fabricated outrage that is also extremely selective in that they ingore how under the Bush administration they targetted the NAACP and Greenpeace based simply on Republican requests to do so.

    There is hardly nothing known about this so while I have a problem with such spying, I'm not ready to fly off the handle just because Fox says so. I'll logically wait for more info... info that isn't spun into a tizzy by partisans and their nonsense because thus far, you guys are batting a thousand.

    Lot's of stuff but the things that bother me about him you'd not have a problem with. You just look for people to agree to hate Obama... unlike you, I look at policies I like and dislike. Obama stands for some things I like, some things I dislike while the GOP pretty much stands for nothing other than opposing whatever comes out of Obama's mouth. They stand for nothing unless it's a taxbreaks for Exxon.

    My bad... I wasn't aware that you don't care about lives of people that aren't Ambassadors... like a US Diplomat and these other folks:

    January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.

    June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al Qaeda attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

    October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of "Bali Bombings." No fatalities.

    February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.

    May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al Qaeda terrorists storm the diplomatic compound, killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.

    July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.

    December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al Qaeda terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.

    March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers. (I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name "David Foy." This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what's considered American soil.)

    September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting "Allahu akbar" storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.

    January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.

    March 18, 2008. Sana'a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaeda-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.

    July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.

    September 17, 2008. Sana'a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.

    Parse it all you want to try and differentiate but your conspiracy hypotheses still won't pan out.

    You look foolish trying to defend what is obvious to most of us, I suppose if they were to start rounding people up, disappearing in the night you'd excuse that too.

    Your opinion noted as is your double standard. You simply cannot do anything but blame Bush for Obama's incompetence and failures. What you don't seem to understand is leadership and the responsibilities that go with the title. You try to justify Obama's performance by seeming to claim the performance is ok because Bush did it. Like all liberals you have a distorted view of not only leadership but the foundation upon which this country was built including tax cuts which mean businesses keeping more of what they earned since it isn't the government's money first.

    Keep feigning outrage over Fox News and their reporting. When the MSM catches up I am sure that we will all be getting an apology from you for your bogus claims about Fox

    Parse it all you want to try and differentiate but your conspiracy hypotheses still won't pan out.
    Firstly, are you suggesting that this type of activity mysteriously stopped on September 2008 or just as President Obama was taking office?

    Secondly, the vast majority of people killed in the events you note were not American.

    Finally, if you don't understand the significance of an American Ambassador being murdered, the first one in 40 years, since the Carter Presidency, then nothing I say is going to help you lift the blindfold.

    What a :facepalm: comment. Your conspiracy mindedness are already setting up scenarios of "OBAMA'S COMING TO TAKE U AND UR CHILDREN!!!!!111111!!!!"

    No matter how loud you scream you are still just one person and screaming doesn't turn hot air into truth.
