Shoot Obama had them in Libya and he didn't take care of them. Like I said I believe that is malfeasance for the state department not to take care of them in a dangerous part of the world as other parts of the world like Germany or France are not the same level of danger and terror. So, to use the argument that there are other embassies in the world and we did not know which ones to protect is insane. I mean besides a newly formed government there was the memos to say there was violence. BTW, you need to complain to the Obama administration as they were the ones that placed them in danger in Libya, not me. Obama and his administration did not care about them and that shows me that he cares little about Americans. I (as well as many other Americans) will point all Obama's problems and anti-American attitudes until he is out of office and like you said "so deal with it".
I'm not complaining about the fact that we have an embassy in Libya or anywhere else. I just think we need to take a more Libertarian foreign policy stance. Closing all of them would suit me just fine. Too say that Obama doesn't care about Americans is just plain crazy. I'm not his biggest fan but firmly believe he cares and that he is proud to be an American. Feel free to point out anything you like. I can deal with anything.

Trent Lott, Ronald Reagan and Republican Racism
Dec. 14, 2002 / http://tinyurl.com/d9w75
Southern Strategy: The race question has haunted Reagan and the GOP for decades
The same could be said, of course, about such Republican heroes as, Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon or George Bush the elder, all of whom used coded racial messages to lure disaffected blue collar and Southern white voters away from the Democrats. Yet it's with Reagan, who set a standard for exploiting white anger and resentment rarely seen since George Wallace stood in the schoolhouse door, that the Republican's selective memory about its race-baiting habit really stands out.

No tears for Reagan
June 8, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/558r6l
Excuse me if I don’t shed any tears over the passing of former President Ronald Reagan. While the news of the 40th president’s death brought on a flood of sentimentality over the nation’s media this past weekend, I could not help but recall what the Reagan presidency really meant for Black Americans. Similar to what occurred upon the death of Richard Nixon, amnesia has set upon journalists as they recall Reagan’s era; choosing to indulge in idol worship rather than serious reflection on the former president’s policies.
http://www.blackamericatoday.com/article.cfm...

Ronald Reagan: The Great White Redeemer
http://tinyurl.com/6jljhm / June 10 2004
Only 12 years elapsed between the glorious military victory over the Confederate Slave States in 1865 and the definitive defeat of Reconstruction in 1877. In many important respects, the Reconstruction period was even briefer than that. By 1870, when the last of the southern states ratified the 15th Amendment to the Constitution, Tennessee had already rejected biracial democracy and installed an all-white “Redeemer” government.“Redemption” then swept through Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

Reagan's heart of darkness
June 9, 2004 / http://tinyurl.com/28ytj
PRESIDENT Bush proclaimed: "Ronald Reagan believed that God takes the side of justice and that America has a special calling to oppose tyranny and defend freedom." In the first three days of news reports on the death of the former president, not a single major American newspaper, television station, or politician has dared to exhume this counterpoint to the Reagan's legacy: "Immoral, evil, and totally un-Christian."
http://www.boston.com/news/globe/editorial_op...

Reagan, White As Snow
http://tinyurl.com/6lujee
Last week, as we’ve heard, the Republican presidential candidates praised the name and heritage of Ronald Reagan 40 times during the televised Show and Tell at the Reagan Presidential Library. That none of them mentioned Reagan’s legacy of white supremacy and support for apartheid is a little like invoking Jefferson Davis and not mentioning treason or slavery. Actually, a lot like it.
Ronald Reagan was a white supremacist to his very core, and left enough traces over his lengthy political career so that it’s evident for anyone who cares to look—which apparently few do.
Domestically, he opposed every legislative remedy for African Americans, betraying a meanness of spirit and an open racism. As Sidney Blumenthal wrote in The Guardian in 2003:/ http://www.tompaine.com/articles/2007/05/08/r...

Finally, some links to back up your work, but you forgot to read this from your links. "Throughout the years U.S. embassies all over the world have been targets of protests and violence by terrorist groups and discontented citizens trying to make a point, or just generally cause chaos and mayhem." Bush did not create the attacks and they started long before he was ever in office.

Plus none of your links show that the ambassador was killed in the attack who had asked for help and that the American government was watching them die for hours while sat around doing nothing. Finally how, would know how I feel hater as I just posted the truth and you did not until these links. Here's the many things you missed for those links. Plus in many cases they were planned attacks which did not happen or nobody was killed.

"Paris, France, September 13, 2001: Four men were arrested in Rotterdam on conspiracy to plant a suicide bomber in the U.S. embassy in Paris. The NATO headquarters in Brussels was also targeted. The plot was discovered in July 2001 when a conspirator named Djamel Beghal was arrested in Dubai for passport fraud. He confessed after an interrogation. All the conspirators were part of a small satellite of Al-Qaeda.

Karachi, Pakistan, June 14, 2002, February 28, 2003, March 15, 2004, and March 2, 2006:The string of bombings and attempted bombings outside the U.S. consult in Karachi were thought to be in retaliation for the War on Terror in Afghanistan, and later Iraq. The first bomb in June 2002 was a suicide bomber, who killed 12 and injured 51 people. In February 2003, a gunman killed two police officer and injured five others outside the consulate. In March 2004, an attempted bombing was stopped when police discovered 200 gallons of liquid explosives in the back of a truck. In March 2006, another suicide bomber killed six people outside a nearby Marriott Hotel.

Tashkent, Uzbekistan, July 30, 2004: The U.S. and Israeli embassies were targeted by suicide bombers. Two security guards were killed.

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, December 6, 2004: Militants breached the outer wall of the U.S. consulate and began shooting, but did not enter the consulate. Five civilians and the gunmen were killed. Ten people were wounded.

Damascus, Syria, September 12, 2006: Three gunmen were killed after they tossed grenades over the embassy's outer wall and a car bomb exploded outside the embassy. A Syrian security guard and a Chinese diplomat also died.

Athens, Greece, January 12, 2007: A rocket-propelled grenade was fired into the front of the U.S. embassy around 6 am in the morning. No one was killed or hurt. A Greek terrorist group called "Revolutionary Struggle" claimed responsibility.

Istanbul, Turkey, July 9, 2008: Kurdish Turks open fired around 11 am, killing six people and injuring one. The three men had suspected Al-Qaeda links, but this was never proven.

San'a, Yemen, September 7, 2008: 19 people died and at least 16 were injured when a group of men disguised at police attacked the outer security rim of the U.S. embassy. Al-Qaeda affiliate Islamic Jihad of Yemen claimed responsibility."

Well, if he did care, then he politicized it because he had 4-5 memos saying that they need more security in Benghazi and they were blown off. Ambassador Steven was even composing a memo for security on the day he died. What is a libertarian approach? SO, if Obama cared then he wanted to pretend that everything was in control so he could look better in the press and it was not safe. Americans died because of this politicization and that is not right.

Finally? Horseshit skippy, I have no problems backing up what I post.

I could care less if "Bush did not create the attacks and they started long before he was ever in office." The FACT of the matter is this, The GOP is faking outrage over Benghazi as a simple point of being sore losers from the election.

If they weren't why was there no outrage from the GOP when 11 US Embassies were attacked under bush's watch?

NO, Romney correctly pointed out it was a terrorist attack long before Obama even slightly admitted to it and in fact, he really did not admit to it until after the election when it does not matter and the MSM basically covered it up for him as they dug more deeply into the Petreaus sex thing than dead people in Benghazi. Why should an ambassador die because Obama wants to seem in control of foreign affairs? I mean the powers in the Middle East see that he is not in control and that is the main reason why they are acting so aggressive, IMO.

Obviously it was a terrorist attack. no-one ever disputed that. what you are confusing is people knowing it is a terrorist attack and a gov't blaming the attack on a single terrorist group.

Skippy, then back up your posts all the time as your fellow liberal posters never do. BTW, it is not fake outrage by the GOP. They are outraged now because there is A DEAD AMBASSADOR AND OBAMA IS CALLING IT "A BUMP IN THE ROAD" AS IF THE AMBASSADOR AND HIS PROTECTORS LIVES MEAN NOTHING. OBAMA WANTS TO PRETEND THAT HE IS IN CONTROL OF EVERYTHING WHEN WE CAN SEE THAT HIS POLICIES MAKE HIM IN CONTROL OF VERY LITTLE, IF ANYTHING. Just look at the rest of the Middle East to that fact - even the liberal AP has seen that fact.
BTW Skippy, the GOP has been concerned about all the attacks on Americans From 9/11 to the the USS Cole to Kenya on down. Whereas the attacks that do not fit Obama's agenda, he appears to not care.

"Inside Job" Director Charles Ferguson: Wall Street Has Turned the U.S. into a "Predatory Nation" / May 29, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/6v49j98
Two years after directing the Academy Award-winning documentary,“Inside Job,” filmmaker Charles Ferguson returns with a new book,“Predator Nation: Corporate Criminals, Political Corruption, and the Hijacking of America.” Ferguson explores why no top financial executives have been jailed for their role in the nation’s worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. We also discuss Larry Summers and the revolving door between academia and Wall Street, as well as the key role Democrats have played in deregulating the financial industry. According to Ferguson, a "predatory elite" has "taken over significant portions of economic policy and of the political system, and also, unfortunately, major portions of the economics discipline."
