    No one ever said there have not been embassy attacks.

    The last Ambassador killed was 33 years ago.

    I have no idea what links you want me to supply...a list of ambassadors who have not been killed?


    Please try to deal with the topic as presented
    Ah, so if they weren't ambassadors their deaths don't matter. Gotcha. The moral acrobatics conservatives are pulling to make this a scandal is "Brazil" levels of deplorable.

    The Guardian Newspaper and a German broadcasting outlet blew that story out of the water the next day. The Guardian was able to sift through the rubble and lift classified documents; US security staff did not arrive for several days.

    The BBC and CBC were both reporting a terrorist attack within 48 hours, with stories leading with "The US White House continues to cling to...."

    The story did not change for two weeks and as evidenced here they still try to give it validity. There was a CIA report that the video figured in a demonstration in Egypt, that was it.

    Yet, they continue to try to hide behind it, nearly a year and a half later, continue try to assert that it's no big deal, when in fact Obama has sent a message that you can so kill American diplomats and get away with it.

    The president who would "not rest" until the perpetrators were caught and punished hasn't caught anyone to punish in 18 months.

    THAT, tells everyone all they need to know.

    WTF?


    Don't matter?

    The opposite...sir, the opposite.

    You have allowed a serving Ambassador to be killed in an outright assassination, the perpetrators have gotten away with it for the first time in 33 years under Obama's watch.

    and please pay attention, not everyone who sees the failings of the most incompetent president since Gerry Ford is a Fox news swilling conservative. In fact I don't think Fox is even available here and I am a proud member of the LIBERAL party of Canada, work for them and write speeches pointing out the many failings of the Harper government, that's the country just north of you...

    It is so terribly ignorant and elitist of the bankrupt social democrat Obamacrats to try to brand every critic as a whacked out "Tea Bagger", and, in my opinion proof of an innate immaturity along with an inability to stick to the facts in debate, but wallow in a fetid, sewage laden gutter of childish name calling.

    here is a list of US embassy attacks :

    Attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    please provide links to two years of fox news saturation coverage of any of the attacks occurring between 2001 and January of 2009.

    Holy ****, I did? Was it because I took the 10 to get to work instead of taking the surface streets as usual, or was it because I put off filling the tank til the last possible moment?

    Like hysterically accusing me of allowing the murder of an ambassador in Libya?

    We have found the smoking gun. Cardinal did it.

    didn't the white house contact youtube as the battle was ongoing, directing the video to be taken down
    isn't that an indication that the administration actually believed in real time that the video had instigated the uprising, as was believed had earlier occurred in cairo
    doesn't that exculpate the white house of the allegation it made up the attack being a video related incident

    but hold hearings
    find out why congress underfunded the state department's request to harden its most vulnerable facilities
    find out what the CIA's role was and why the ambassador chose to make himself so vulnerable in a very hostile environment
    find out if our spooks were transferring arms to the rebels, and if that was aided by the state department
    find out if al qaeda used the commotion about the video as a smokescreen to launch an effective attack against the US


    your whining that the perps have not yet been brought to justice is begging for a comparison to the shrub and his failure to pursue osama bin laden and reagan's withdrawal of forces after 241 of our troops were killed in the 1983 beirut attack
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    I love this. I do. Watching all the right wingers jump on the conspiracy theory wagon and then play themselves off as reasonable and logical is ....a riot.
