    I'm sorry you don't see it. I tried my best.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

And now we're back there again.....

    Greetings, Middleground.

    Again there is nothing to see.....reality is all that counts. Which Bush Junior doesn't play into any of this reality of what was said to you. None.

    I appreciate you giving it your best shot.....but like with all American Exceptionalism. Sometimes ones best shot.....isn't good enough. Just sayin.

    Your self-imposed ignorance is as glaring as it is humorous. Or maybe it is just ignorance.

    the installment of the Muslim Brotherhood into power was a conscious and deliberate strategy of the Obama Administration developed before the "Arab Spring" began.

    So the Obama Administration did not stand beside friendly regimes or help to manage a limited transition with more democracy and reforms. No, it actively pushed to bring down at least four governments—Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, and Yemen.

    It did not push for the overthrow of two anti-American regimes—Iran and Syria—but on the contrary was still striving for good relations with those two dictatorships. Equally, it did not push for the fall of radical anti-American governments in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip. No, it only pushed for the fall of “valuable allies.”

    "The administration is already taking steps to distinguish between various movements in the region that promote Islamic law in government. An internal assessment, ordered by the White House last month, identified large ideological differences between such movements as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and al-Qaeda that will guide the U.S. approach to the region."

    That says it all, doesn't it? The implication is that the U.S. government knew that the Brotherhood would take power and thought this was a good thing.

    A third American hostage held by ISIS has been identified as a 26-year-old American woman who was kidnapped a year ago while doing humanitarian relief work in Syria. The terror group is demanding $6.6 million and the release of U.S. prisoners for the life of the young woman, who the family requested not be identified.

    In addition to the multi-million dollar ransom, the terror group has also demanded that the U.S. release Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT-trained neuroscientist who was convicted by the U.S. in 2010 of trying to kill U.S. officials two years before, according to a supporter of Siddiqui who has been in contact with the hostage’s family.....snip~

    Oh.....that's ABC 45 mins ago.
    Pay it if need be and get her out of there. We should do our utmost to save our citizens. ISIS won't be substantially boosted by such a minor cash infusion and we've done this many times in the past.

    Ignorance is believing that piece of **** blog written by some dick head then quoting it like it's some form of truth. And believe me, I ain't no Obama apologist.

    If you don't think the Bush Administrations actions had anything to do with the growing hate in the ME, then common sense and critical thinking are not your forte.

    Don't give them anything, tell them that if they are willing to target civilians, we'll do the same and then bomb the living crap out of their families. Tell them that for every American civilian life that is lost, we'll kill a thousand of their people. Sooner or later, they either stop or they run out of people.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
