    FFS... What part of "Off-Topic" are you having trouble understanding?

    You try and turn every GD thread you don't like into a debate about Bush and Iraq.

    Give it a rest.

    Misreading on your part. Try again.

    Nope, it was a clear statement he said he didn't say.

    Keeping their memories alive is quite commendable. I assume you have memorialized each of them along with the other 50 or so Americans that have been killed in attacks on American embassies (and consulates) over the years.

    Sorry, but you're misreading the evidence, coloring the past with hindsight.
