    State department incompetence (Hillary) got the ambassador and very small security team killed.

    Actually, "What difference at this point does it make?" is a response.

    Very serious, I hope the response to this from the US is a military one. We can't allow this.
    Think the military will categorize this shooting as "workplace violence?"

    If history is any indication ..... sure.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I don't believe that killing a lot of people will make this better.

    It's obvious that the person who did this was disgruntled.

    Gruntled people don't do things like this.

    How old were you in 2001?

    Kindergarten age?

    That would be about right considering the content of your post.

    We went into Afghanistan for no other reason than that it was providing a base and refuge for the Osama Bin laden-Al Qaeda-Night Creatures who carried out the 9/11 attack.

    It was a just war if there ever was one.

    We have stayed there since only to ensure that the Night Creature host does not take over again.

    If isolationist nitwits, such as you, have their way then the Night Creatures probably will return, and more of our people will die than if we stay as long as we need to.

    Exit from this place is long overdue. Come on Obama....
    When a man lies, he murders some part of the world.

    Probably so-- a general is usually going to be a more valuable asset.

    They will not have been killed in vain if we have the guts to stand fast. Hopefully Iraq has taught us something in that regard.

    Obama's the first president since WW2 to lose a general to enemy action. He'll wear that distinction as a badge of honor.

    Wrong again (still) in the theme of Reagan's covert (contra) operation, running arms to the AQ, MB, and al Nusra infested rebels in Syria via the Benghazi annex through Turkey got the ambassador and small security team killed!
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
