<quoted text>If troops were sent into Libya, the American public would be outraged. Americans are sick of getting involved in all of these foreign conflicts which we have no business being in. America hasn't fought for it's own country since WW-2 and ironically, we haven't won a conflict since then either.
You're an idiot.
Attack an American embassy and kill an American ambassador and 3 other Americans will get the stuffins bombed out of you with any president that didn't spend his entire life hating the United States.
The people you allow to dupe you may be outraged. Hell, they're outraged that the United States even exists.

Why hasn't Obama responded to the commemorative 3000 Americans killed 9/11 Arab attacks?

What is Obama waiting for?

Could it be that Obama is part of the commemorative 3000 Americans killed on 9/11 Arab celebratory attacks?

You do realize that Al Qaeda took over FOUR of our embassies, aren't you?
How about you say something rediculous like "Al Qaeda is on the ropes" for us now. We need a good laugh.

Fox Admits Libya Attack May Have Been Caused By Anti-Muslim Video

The right-wing is beginning to reverse itself on insisting that a anti-Muslim YouTube video had nothing to do with the attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya. Republicans and Fox News have scorned the Obama administration for weeks for initial statements that the assault in Benghazi, that took the life of Ambassador Chris Stevens, was an outgrowth of a protest sparked by this video.

Fox’s Geraldo Rivera went against that narrative on Friday. After Fox and Friends host Steve Doocy once again mocked the notion that the video was an impetus for the attack, Rivera instead presented the idea that it was in fact both a reaction to the video and a terrorist attack. The hosts quickly attempted to pull Rivera back on-message after he completed explaining his theory, but couldn’t persuade him to drop it completely.

Fox reporter Peter Doocy later also reported that the attack may have been “tied to that anti-Islamic video”, a short film, purported to be part of a full length movie known as “The Innocence of Muslims,” and its derogatory portrayal of the Prophet Mohammed. Watch both statements here: VIDEO

The grudging change comes on the heels of several new reports that cut through the simplicity of the Republican talking points. Reporters from both Reuters and the New York Times met with Ahmed Abu Khattala — leader in the Ansar al-Sharia militia suspected by the Libyan and U.S. governments of taking part in the attack — in a Benghazi hotel. While Abu Khattala claimed that he himself did not take part in the assault, he said the attack grew out of a protest against the video.

Complicating matters further are new reports on precisely what the Obama administration knew when U.S. United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on several Sunday talk shows on Sept. 16. According to a Wall Street Journal account published on Friday, the intelligence community began receiving new data the night before Rice’s television appearances:

Despite their growing uncertainty, intelligence officials didn’t feel they had enough conclusive, new information to revise their assessment. Ms. Rice wasn’t warned of their new doubts before she went on the air the next morning and spoke of the attacks being spurred by demonstrations, intelligence officials acknowledged.

More information casting doubt on the protest element came in on Sunday morning, around the time that Ms. Rice was completing her TV appearances, the officials said. She began taping the shows early Sunday morning. By the time intelligence analysts began to realize “there’s enough here to build a body of evidence that there probably were not protests, those things were already recorded and she [Ms. Rice] was already out there,” a senior intelligence official said.

These new accounts are becoming harder to ignore, particularly in the aftermath of Mitt Romney’s mishandling of the facts during this week’s presidential debate. While many questions still remain on the intelligence and security situation in Benghazi, during the attack and after, the Fox News simplification is on the way out.

Romney said it best: "We don't have to live this way."

... can't wait to see Da Bammy come out on stage with a big ol' albatross named Benghazi hangin' from his scrawny neck. Four Americas were sacrificed so Da Bammy didn't look like what he really is ... incompetent.

America deserves to fail if Da Bammy is re-elected. Either way, I win! LOL

Has the Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated the Romney Campaign?

Anti-Muslim activists on the Right have consistently warned that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the Obama administration. But if their unhinged McCarthyism is to be believed, then Mitt Romney’s campaign has been penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood as well, as Romney’s campaign has named George Salem, Samah Norquist and David Ramadan “National Co-Chairs of Arab Americans for Romney.”

Pamela Geller labeled George Salem’s Arab American Institute a “nototrious anti-Israel Israel [sic] organization” composed of “Islamic supremacists” and led by a “Jew hater.” She even suggested that the AAI seeks “Jewish annihilation” by backing Mideast peace efforts.

Geller, Frank Gaffney, Robert Spencer, William Murray, Andrea and James Lafferty and others sent a letter to Edwin Meese demanding he withdraw his endorsement of Virginia Del. David Ramadan because of his purported ties to Muammar Gadaffi and “radical views,” including his support for the right to build the Park 51 Islamic Community Center. James Lafferty said Ramadan is an “extremist” who should not even “be allowed to continue to live in the United States,” and Geller said he is a “stealth jihadist” and a “Muslim Brotherhood plant.”

Perhaps no chair of Romney’s committee is despised more than Samah Norquist, wife of conservative leader Grover Norquist. Glenn Beck and Jerry Boykin have said that Norquist is a lackey for the Muslim Brotherhood and according to anti-Muslim activists like Gaffney and David Horowitz, Norquist secretly converted to Islam and joined the Muslim Brotherhood at the behest of his wife. Conservative attorney Cleta Mitchell wrote in a report for the American Conservative Union that she is “certain that Mr. Gaffney’s hatred [for Norquist] is further fueled by the fact that Grover is married to a Muslim-American woman (who also has worked for the United States government in very responsible positions, I might add!).”

Of course, these spurious claims against Ramadan, Norquist and Salem are just as baseless and wrong as their attacks against the Obama administration and the Muslim-Americans serving in it.

But while extremists like Geller, Gaffney, Horowitz and others are quick to attack Obama with such bogus charges, for some reason it seems unlikely Romney will receive similar treatment.

Fox Continues Attacks on Libya Response Even as Their Arguments Are Falling Apart

In the mean time, we're also treated to follow ups like this one where HuckaJesus brought on Bush spokespuppet Dana Perino to weigh in on whether the Obama administration is being honest with the public about the attack. After coming to the podium to carry water for the Bush administration, I guess she knows a thing or two about lying to the public. Why anyone thinks she's got anything worth adding to this debate is beyond me, but it's upside down world at Fox, so this is what they put on the air -- Dana Perino -- the supposed bastion of journalistic integrity when it comes to administrations telling the public the truth. Lord help us.

So, the Muslim Brotherhood gets the White House tour, and the Prime Minister of Israel gets booked in Motel 6.

Yup, that does make me wonder if our idiot of a president isn't on their side.
... not to mention that another time the Prime Minister of Israel was in town that idiot Obama spewed out of his mouth the indoctrinated Islamist terrorist party line about the borders of Israel will be the pre-war 1967 borders, demonstrating his complete ignorance of the official US government's position on the matter.
Netanyahu jerked him up and slapped him around a bit after that.

Obama has a history of supporting the Islamist terrorists. You'd know that if you paid attention to actual events.

If Romney just ask Obama what his jobs plan was for the next four years Obama would be silent.
If Romney just ask Obama why we had a drone watching our ambassador get killed but no help coming to save them, Obama would be silent.
If Romney ask Obama why he has found time to meet with the comedy channel, late night talking shows, the "pimp with a limp", and Hollywood's elite, but has not met with his jobs counsil in almost a year but claims he cares and is working so hard on creating jobs. Obama would be silent.
If Romney ask Obama why he is telling people out of one side of his mouth that Bush charged two wars on a credit card and yet out of the other he tells us that he'll take the money wasted on two unfunded wars and apply that money to other things for our benefit. Romney should ask Obama how it is saving us anything to continue to charge on that credit card. Obama would be silent.
Obama is an empty chair and the only real job he has created is the person that has to dust the chair in the Oval Office.
If Obama doesn't stay silent if ask any of these questions, it's only because he would again show us how easy it is for him to lie to us.
