    Right. So we wouldn't have an Islamic State today.

    Hence the term "Smart Diplomacy". See how smart it is?

    Looks like ISIS has destroyed an M1 Abrams and is posting pics from Ramadi. That can't be good.

    Enter "old news" I have to ask how "smart" does it look now to have allowed the Benghazi terrorists to escape? The FBI idea was a shot not heard thoughout Islam and said "hey, the American ass wipe president is afraid of us".

    What was needed there was some good old fashioned Teddy Roosevelt response, some warships off the coast, air strikes and mass assault that said "do not **** with us."

    Id settle for the perpetrators being brought to justice, instead they openly dined in Libyas best restaurants.

    It now appears that ISIS controls Iraq's largest oil refinery. Truly, they are the JV team.

    Frankly I getting pretty sick of those people over there. They cause more problems than they're are worth.

    There should have been a show of force. It was the first time a sitting ambassador was killed in office in 30 years amid an increasingly unstable middle east. That, I say, is one of the main indirect causes of the spread we see today

    Seriously, can you see this happening under Reagan. They threw Jewish man off a boat and Regan bombed Gaddafy's house killed his son and we did not hear much from the acne ridden dictator for several years, had become a beacon of reason until Hillary decided he had to go.

    This "smart diplomacy" is a socialists name for cowardice

    Yup, and after 9/11 Ghadaffi voluntarily ended his WMD programs, he was terrified of Bush.
    I have said we should have gone in, and we should have had jets flying low level supersonic runs over that city the entire night to let them know that hell was coming with us.

    Tragically, despite the Libyan govt telling Hillary immediately that it was a planned terrorist attack, Hillary slapped them in the face by blaming it on a spontaneous demonstration about a video (despite the pre-sighted crew served mortars being used, and despite the fact that youtube did not display the video in that country)-and its cited as the reason why the FBI had to wait weeks to go into Libya.

    Wait. I thought there was no such thing as Islamic extremists.
