Well, you have the right to your opinion; but you don't really know. I could very well say the same thing about Bush; remember when he prohibited photos of the flag draped coffins? Bush didn't attend any of the funerals or meet the coffins arrivals back to the States.
From what I have seen about President Obama and the First Lady; they are very caring and compassionate people who care deeply for veterans and the families of the deceased.
that's why the slimeball Obama let two former SEALS die on a rooftop in Benghazi....

Losing the World
How the Benghazi debacle became a proxy for America's myth of domination
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...
Excellent read.
My simplistic take on this article is that it sounds like an apology article to go along with Obama's apology tour. I understand the concept of American not having the right to inflict its will on other countries, just as I understand the concept of this world needing SOMEONE with morals regarding human rights needing to stand for that no matter what. The jihadists would glady go for world domination and take away all rights from all peoples; therefore, someone strong should stand against it. I also see how some American greed and avarice would also affect those interactions.

I didn't even listen to Mitt's statement right after Benghazi. I just felt it was important that if we DO send American ambassadors to other countries, we should also have whatever is necessary to keep them safe available to them at all times, and apparently this administration did not take those precautions, nor as now is apparent, even send help AFTER the attack started. I feel this administration failed in that regard, kn that responsibility to our citizens, and my opinion has nothing to do with Mitt Romney.

There is little difference between a US citizen hiding in Yemen directing attacks against US citizens & a sniper in a clock tower. The sniper is taken out by SWAT.
But hey, a real law enforcement person would know this.

I'd like to see what would have happened if that Force Recon unit in Sigonella, Italy, were put into the fight.
Marine Force Recon will be armed and ready to deploy 10 minutes after waking them.
Why were they stood down?

Ty Woods, retired from the US Military and afterwards became a "soldier of fortune" none of the activities attributed to Woods on the evening of 9/11 early morning of 9/12 have been confirmed by a "source" with a name and face. It goes without saying that his father wasn't there, the military officials who elder Woods spoke with weren't there so lets try to keep it fkn real OK?
There were Americans who witnessed the events at both locations who "so far" have not spoken publicly. There were Libyan witnesses as well__have you read their stories__has Glenda Beck or Sundancecracker?
the only thing worse than Obama is a draft-dodging Obamabot slimeball like Realtime who attacks men who gave their lives for their country....

I'm going to ask the same question the Americans dying in Benghazi asked ... and was recorded for us to listen to today:

Where's the Spectre?(That's the AC-130 gunship deployed in Libya for this exact reason.)

Why was the Spectre not deployed to the fight?

The Spectre was there for this exact reason.
The Force Recon Marines in Sigonella were there for this exact reason.
Why weren't they put into the fight?

So if a man keeps a smile o his face, has God/jJesus in his heart, and is a happy friendly helpful person, that means you can not trust him with your life? You are more stupid than I first thought.

You mean you can't count on Mitt keeping your Welfare To Work.."NOT TO WORK" checks coming in,because he will have people back to work.

It is absolutely mind boggling to me that you Republicans don't recognize the phony hypocrisy of your indignation over Obama's role in Benghazi while defending Bush's role in Iraq. Here we are years later still digging out from the devastation of a war based on faulty intelligence from a Republican president's staff that cost THOUSANDS of American lives and billions of dollars. This bogus intelligence was mulled over by Bush's people for WEEKS and they still phucked up! But you hypocrites rail against Obama's team for not making an INSTANT decision based on cloudy intelligence that could have put even more American lives at risk.
Didn't seem to be anything cloudy about the fact that boots on the ground in country felt their security was unsufficient due to activities and things happening right there around them. Their requests for help were perfectly clear. And when the attack began, it was watched in real time in the White House. Are you saying president obama took the coward's way out to decide not to try to send them help at the time the attack was occurring? So as not to put "American lives" at risk>? Since when does the United States just abandon their citizens rather than make an effort to save them>?

Based on past knowledge (if he had attended his security briefings and been kept up to date on the US around the world), he should have been able to decide to send in air support and whatever else was necessary to stop the attack which lasted many hours. How long should he have to think about it? Couple of days...a few weeks?

Rightwing propaganda?

The deaths in Benghazi are not a partisan issue. They are an American tragedy.
And a failure of an inept, incompetent Liberal President and Administration who certainly DID "allow" the crisis unfolding before their eyes in real time, to lead to the DEATHS of Four Americans. And then continued to LIE about it.

Yes. I believe the POS stumping as president ...
"Let Them Die" to appease his Muslim Brethren.

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
~Barack HUSSEIN Obama

'Cause he certainly DIDN'T STAND WITH THE AMERICANS trapped in Benghazi when the political winds shift(ed) in an ugly direction AGAINST those AMERICNS.

Obama OWNS these Deaths. And America is repulsed.

Yeah! Talk about "Let Them Die" in a new context.

First, you have to actually have some dignity to sell.
And, if you're over 20 years old and still living on minimum wage, you're not worth any more than that.

And it was capitalism that lifted the world out of the relative stone age less than a century ago.
It was Marxist communism that produced the three worst mass murderers in the history of civilization. The imposition of Marxist communism killed more people than all the wars of the previous century around the world combined.

If you're so ignorant that you don't recognize that capitalism created the modern world where the norm is a middle class existence, and changed it from when if you had change in your pocket you were among the wealthiest 10 percent of the people in the world, and you are so ignorant you don't know of the murderous history of Marxism, then I'm confused where you got what you confuse with "dignity". You obviously wouldn't have any dignity, unless complete ignorance is dignified.

You think this is cute and sweet?

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We dont have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

Were the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And were kinda blaming you

We havent killed all the polar bears
But its not for lack of trying
The Earth is cracked
Big Bird is sacked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You cant cut spending
With elections pending
Unless its welfare dough

Were the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And were kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

Its a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long terms kind of a drag

Were the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, were blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
Were blaming you!

The ad is the brainchild of Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, of the San Francisco-based Goodby Silverstein & Partners, for their Future Children Project. The Future Children Project states on its website,Re-electing President Obama is a momentous decision that will require every single voter. What would the children of the future say if we let them down this November?

Where's the message of hope and a better tomorrow?
