They are already DEAD.

Obama attending a ceremony marking return of the bodies is just a public relations tactic and doesn't change the fact that they ARE dead.

What he should be doing instead is DECIDING what he is going to DO about the fact that our people were MURDERED.

Attending a ceremony isn't going to help him figure out what to do!!

It's called "SHOWING RESPECT AND HONOR" ! It's obvious you don't have any. BTW, where was your cult leader and lowlife Romney? Oh, that's right, he's talking more bullsh!t in Ohio.

Obama knew well about the al Qaida planned attack and that our US personnel in Benghazi had no bullets in their arms but he did nothing to prevent the attack on 9-11-2012 and the killing our Ambassador and US SEALs. How many friends does the Mozlem Brother obsessed Obama has in the Mozlem brother world that to whom he never stopped apologizing and criticizing America as the evil country of occupiers? Clearly, only one. Mozlem Brother Morsi of Egypt who is on his way to meet Obama and to get from Obama more almost two billion dollars borrowed from China for his support of the Hamas Mozlem Brother terrorists of Gaza against Israel is the one Mozlem Brother leader who allowed the attack on US Embassy in Cairo on 9-11-2012 that was planned a week before and was well known to Obama who did nothing to stop it. The Mozlem Brother world is united against the weak paper tiger America that Obama promised to convert from superpower to super poor and super welfare banana republique. Obama is playing double game with the American people as he allows his Mozlem Brother friends to punish and humiliate America that lost its influence in the Middle East, Africa and around the world thanks to the America hater Obama who studied the Jihadist Mozlem brother culture of hatred to America and Israel in Indonesia.

Respect and honor, how sweet.

Empty rhetoric: "We will bring to justice those who took them from us. We will stand fast against the violence on our diplomatic missions.

So what IS he going to DO, besides EMPTY PROMISES??

How does one 'stand fast'?

Blah, blah, blah.

I'm sure they will find some stool pigeon to blame this on.

Will Obama HANG 'EM HIGH?? Will he put them in Gitmo? Will he have them assassinated??

The bodies are already COLD and he has DONE NOTHING but mumble some empty words.
pfffftttt

We should note Chicago communist conspirator Clinton was forced to continue the Obama apology, that a film seen by ten people two months ago caused the pre-planned attacks and murders accomplished with the RPGs Obama supplied them. Why are these people defending a so-called "prophet", who forced his adult wives to prepare a nine year old girl for his big schlong and committed atrocities far exceeding the beheading of our newsman on YouTube?

You were doing fine and I was in total agreement with you until you brought Romney into it. The topic has nothing to do with Romney. It is about Obama attending the reception ceremony. Period. I agree he was there as a matter of respect to those killed. As he should have been in a case like this.

My question was in reference to where was Romney? If he wanted to gain some credibility with his sorrow for the 4 men that died, he should have been at the ceremony.

Apparently, Romney respects the established tradition of not allowing cameras at Dover and other places where the coffins of victims of war are returned. Obama, Biden and Clinton could have done a serious, respectful homage to the fallen and the families without cameras. Who, except coarse politicians would want America looking at coffins?

Romney is irrelevent to the ceremony. He isn't President,member of the State Dept or close kin of those killed. Not his place to be there any more than yours. He expressed the sorrow he felt at the loss of these men to the Nation while speaking at a meeting in Ohio. He didn't dwell on it or try to use the issue for "points". He merely expressed his sorrow and pased condolences on to the families. That was enough.
