Shows you how much he knew about American law.
And bushie boy never apologized for iraq. And he never will. He takes it all with a gain of salt and no responsibility. After all, it was Obama who got Bin Ladin after bushie shut down the special task force assigned that one function.
Yes, we know he's not your president. That seems to be the norm. I suggest people like you leave the country for a leader they recognize, but for some reason they refuse.
I wonder why?
There were 13 attacks on U.S. compounds abroad during Bush's term. Do you recall any apologies? I don't.

There was no apology when U.S. Diplomat David Foy and three others were killed in the attack on the Karachi consulate in March, 2006. Nor were there apologies when 4 people were killed and 13 wounded in the attack on the U.S. Compound in Damascus, Syria or when two Americans were killed in Sept. 2008 in the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Sana'a Yemen. Oh, and let us not forget the March 2003 attack on our U.S. compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia when terrorists stormed the compound and killed 36 people, including 9 Americans.

Republican mantra: "Do as we say, not as we do." Their double standard really is sickening.

LIBYA: U.S. ambassador reopens embassy in Tripoli

Without an embassy there couldn't be a CIA outpost. The CIA mission was to collect weapons held by extremist that they had gathered during the uprising as state in a previous article I posted.

<quoted text> How daffy are you. If you don't have the money--the embassy security accounts were defunded by the republicans as part of the deal to agree to raise the debt ceiling --you don't have it to deliver . Under Ronald Reagan , a Democrat-controlled Congress voted to raise the debt ceiling 17 times to fund Reagan's programs, but a republican controlled Congress can't raise the deby ceiling ONCE without demanding cuts to embassy security accounts that could have saved our Ambassador and other consulate officials the night of the Benghazi attacks.
The woman in charge of embassy security states that the decisions she made on Libya security had nothing to do with lack of funding.

Nothing you have said has changed a word of her testimony

Every time, you nitwits make a predictable, if ignorant argument.
Bush is an idiot, yet all you can do is speak of his wealth, as if it matters.
Rmoney is an idiot, yet all you can do is speak of his wealth.
How'd his wealth help hinm in the last election??
Why won't he release his tax records?? Because he'd be put in jail for illegal tax shelters, that's why.
Funny how you nitwits admire wealth, even if it's from corrupted aholes like Bush and Rmoney.
Proves what an idiot you are.
You were likely open minded before all your brains fell out.
Bush isn't an idiot, but you are a moron. 1. He attained greater stature than the dunderhead from Chicago. 2.He isn't required to release his tax records, it's not a requirement to be President. Your reasoning is juvenile. You surmize to much.

So you started the blame game based on false and incorrect information you're trying to sell.
"...It's going to make you very mad, but that's childish."
You made it Bush's fault a long time ago. Along with everything else under the sun, refusing to blame anyone else - especially your own party.

You linked to a blog?

However, here is the list of terrorist attacks through out the world.
The attacks on our embassies have been ongoing since 1964.

However the Benghazi attack was the first time a sitting POTUS initially denied terrorism was the cause and blamed a video.

It was dishonest and the families of the fallen deserved more than this.

You waved your sign when you started posting Ayn Rand Carol. That sign said "I'm no Christian and I worship at the altar of Me, Me, Me,". You make all kind of noises about how the government helping the poor makes them dependent and robs them of their dignity but truth be told you really don't give a good goddamn. You just don't like not getting to choose who you feel is worthy of your largess so that you can feel all smug and superior.

<quoted text> Republicans never complained about the lack of funds that made it more difficult to impossible to enhance our embassy security before Benghazi happened , but it sure came crashing down on them later. That's why Republicans had to seek in vain for a 'scapegoat' to hide the brutal consequences of their incompetence.
"frontporchdummy"
Testimony on the hill from those involved in Benghazi was that money was not the problem. The problem was that those in charge refused to send help that was available to go to their aid.

"Maybe if you could grasp we were in an unprecedented war after an attack on our shores where the enemy could be your next door neighbor, you might succeed in having some much needed perspective. "
Carol, Nuk doesn't want to use perspective, knowledge, wisdon or any other skills.
It is obvious by her response that all the brain skills she can muster is to rant.
Carol, you are asking someone to use something they are lacking.
It does seem like talking to brick walls who offer no proof of rebuttal in the face of indisputable and credible sources trying to shed a little light into their self-made world of darkness.

But God knows I try.

It snowed in a few New England states yesterday a week before June.

It's going to be summer and hot soon enough though. You might try selling the global warming "it's getting hot in here" theorgy next month.

Before early record snows begin falling again in November.
