First off you are full of crap. Even Faux news experts ripped that lie to shreds.

Fox's Own Experts Reject Fox Narrative That Obama Deliberately Abandoned Americans In Libya
http://mediamatters.org/blog/2012/11/02/foxs-...

Secondly this thread is about Bush and his letting 11 US embassies get attacked and watched as 53 were killed and 90 injured, and the rights apparent amnesia of that fact.

Doh!

First of all I posted only known facts which apparently you can't refute. Obama did watch while 4 americans died and by his orders no help was to be sent. Secondly when you accuse one president (Bush) of letting 11 embassies be attacked but leaving out Carter, Clinton and the criminal acts of obama you can't claim to be anything but a hack for the democtat/ socialist party and regurgitating their talking points. By the way, only two days till you get bitch-slapped by the voters who elect President Romney on Tuesday, A president who will protect americans- not watch them die for political purposes.

As a middle of the road Army officer I wanted to provide some facts to this thread:

Bottom line: One US diplomat and one US citizen (waiting outside an Embassy) killed in all the attacks in the Bush years. The rest of the casualties are local security guards or locals. Also, those US persons were killed in Pakistan and Yemen, two countries with extremely high threats and extensive US counter-terrorism efforts already underway so it is hard to imagine toughening the security posture anymore while maintaining diplomatic facilities in those countries.

Details:

June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.

Fact check: All victims were Pakistani.

February 20, 2003, international diplomatic compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Truck bomb kills 17.

Fact check: Attack actually occurred on 8 Nov, killing 17 workers and injured more than 100. Most of the victims were Muslims, prompting outcry among Saudi citizens.

February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan. Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.

Fact check: Guards were Pakistani, which is consistent with all embassies overseas. There is an outer ring of host nation security with US Marine guarding the inner ring and classified workspaces.

July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan
Suicide bomber kills two.

Fact check: Guards were locals, not US.

December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.

Fact check: No Americans had been killed and a "handful of other employees" had been taken to hospital. Security sources told Reuters the dead were Arabs and Asians.

March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomate directly targeted by the assailants.

Fact check: One US diplomat killed in a country we were actively hunting terrorists in. Other three dead were Pakistani.

September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria
Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb (though second truck bomb failed to detonate). One killed and 13 wounded.

Fact check: Syrian Security Forces successfully countered the attack, killing all four attackers. Two other Syrians killed during the attack were a government security guard and a passerby.

January 12, 2007, U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece
A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the embassy building.

Fact check: No one was injured.

July 9, 2008, U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey
Armed men attacked consulate with pistols and shotguns. Three policemen killed.

Fact check: Six casualties; of which three were the three gunmen (Turkish Kurds, and three Turkish National Police officers.

March 18, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana'a, Yemen
Mortar attack misses embassy, hits nearby girls' school instead.

Fact check: Zero US casualties.

September 17, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana'a, Yemen
Militants dressed as policemen attacked the embassy with RPGs, rifles, grenades and car bombs. Six Yemeni soldiers and seven civilians were killed. Sixteen more were injured.

Fact check: One US casualty. No Americans working at the embassy were injured or harmed during the attack. Susan el-Baneh, a newly married woman from New York, was killed along with her Yemeni husband while waiting outside to fill out paperwork.

Total: One US diplomat and one US citizen (waiting outside an Embassy) killed over the course of 8 years. The rest of the casualties are local security guards or locals. Also, those US persons were killed in Pakistan and Yemen, two countries with extremely high threats and extensive US counter-terrorism efforts already underway so it is hard to imagine toughening the security posture anymore while maintaining diplomatic facilities in those countries.

Except for the fact that I can back up what I post. Try that with your right wing fiction.

Rose Garden speech the next day:

"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done."

You just lost the credibility debate.

Doh!
