Couple more for you and the Benghazi clown parade, big mouth:
February 17, 2008. Belgrade, Serbia. Approximately 2,000 Serbs protested and stoned, then entered the Slovenian embassy, causing major damage, burnt down portions of the United States and Croatian embassies in Belgrade. CNN reported that "charred remains" of an individual had been found inside the burnt-out offices.
October 28, 2002 - 60 year old American diplomat Lawrence Foley is shot to death by Al Qaeda terrorists outside his home in Amman. Foley was supervisory director of the USAID program in Jordan. Foley's assassination was part of a spate of Al Qaeda attacks in the fall of 2002 also including the Bali bombing (which killed over 200 including seven Americans) and the death of an American Marine in Kuwait.
October 15, 2003 - Three American State Department personnel are killed when a roadside bombing strikes their armored vehicle in Gaza. A Syrian-sponsored Palestinian terror group, the Popular Resistance Committee, takes reponsibility. No American retaliation takes place.
January 1, 2008 - American USAID diplomat John Granville, being driven home from a New Year's Eve party at the British Embassy, is ambushed and killed along with his Sudanese driver by jihadist militants in Khartoum, Sudan. Not until Obama came into office were rewards of up to $5 million offered for capturing those responsible.
What the hell are you talkng about? Was there any lying and a coverup on the part of the Bush administration to win a reelection and were these acts of random violence on the anniversary of 9/11?

We could list random acts of violence abroad since 2009 all day long!!!

So what the hell is your point??!!

WTH?

Talk about disgusting incompetence!

"A Massachusetts police chief begged Wednesday for help in finding a burial place for Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, saying that guarding the funeral home where his body is being held is a drain on town resources....

....He's far angrier that no one in the government has stepped up to the solve the dilemma. He blasted state officials for offering to bury Tsarnaev at a prison site and then reneging without explanation.

His calls to officials at the city, state and federal level have yielded no answers. Earlier this week, both the State Department and the Massachusetts governor said they would not intervene to find a final resting place in the U.S. or abroad...."

I am glad Eed is so obsessed with me. Perhaps that obsession stems from my long list of posts debunking his lies. I understand you right whiners just hate it when I continually prove your posts to be lies.
"real dumb"
You do live in La La Land. All the posts you make are refuted, you prove nothing, well that is incorrect, with your every post you prove you are a troll, a liar, a hypocrite, a bigot and a racist.
Obsessed with you, another example of why you live in La La Land, you have cut your self off from reality, you refuse to accept the fact that president nobama is a failure, he has failed in so many ways;
- The unemployment rate is higher than when he took office
- Fewer American's are working
- Fewer American's are paying Federal Income Tax
- Millions more American's are using food stamps
- Housing values are still depressed from there levels when compared to when he took office
- Household income for American's is lower
- Fast and Furious, thousands of guns released to criminals, causing American deaths
You are obsessed, obsessed with the failure currently serving as president, nobama.
Peace

LMAO Strickland has morphed into Wickland__suddenly, so much for the accuracy of the news agencies.
One (R) committee member actually asked Hicks to describe the feeling on the ground in Benghazi when Susan Rice went on TV the following Sunday. LMAO those who actually were in Benghazi had already been evacuated when Rice appeared on TV.
It is a riot lily__more fkn bs that on this thread.
Truth bothering your rose colored glasses RT?

Did you listen to the very credible discussion of the "get out of Benghazi burning" action they had to formulate on spot-amongst THEMSELVES?

Here's hoping we don't have to send troops to Syria. Obviously it was too much to even handle Benghazi!

I told you once before motormouth, do your homework.
Where were you and your opportunistic lying idols when these happened? Lol, not a peep from you then hmm, blabber-mouth fox parrot? You entirely ignore the dozen-plus consulate/embassy attacks that occurred when George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were allegedly “keeping us safe.” Not a peep.
January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.
June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.
October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.
February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.
May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al-Qaida terrorists storm the diplomatic compound killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.
July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.
December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaida terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.
March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers.(I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s considered American soil.)
September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.
January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.
March 18, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaida-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.
July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.
September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.

Do you have even one explanation as to why this happened, Lily? Because the rest of us would sure love to know the information you apparently have privy to.
If a Republican president and his administration lied to you for weeks and weeks after a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 and then pretended like it wasn't that important to provide you and your liberal pals any answers because it was more important to win an upcoming election...you know damn well you would give a shyte!!! A big frggin' shyte!!!
God help us survive your liberal warped mentality.
Wasn't it George W Bush who said that he didn't care to pursue Osama bin Laden ; Bush had an immoral war to start with a loyal ally of the U S , Sadaam Hussein because that's what Bush W's daddy did --sided with the royal family of Kuwait against a conservative republic of Iraq .

Lily thinks party loyalty is like being an adamant sports fan. It's not about rooting for a team - but about who is right and who we can trust at any given time.
When republicans breach that trust, they are ALWAYS held accountable - mostly by their own party - on behalf of all Americans and the good of the country.
It would just be real nice if Democrats could extend the same urgency of accountability on behalf of the rest of us - just once.
