What goes around comes around.
To be precise:
You organize the destruction of a nation, instigate and help mass-murdering its citizens and a most honorable statesman, then you will someday suffer the same fate.
Ambassador Stevens is guilty of above and now his strangulated, decaying body was dragged down the streets of Benghazi by the very same group -- namely al Qaeda -- that he helped bring to power in Libya
Got it?
Obama promised Pelosi and the DNC that each day would be worse than yesterday for the filthy american citizen scum and their nasty families if we settled for him. We did and now we are more pathetic with each passing day.

Your right Vance, the only hope we have is that libs are total liars and fakes. In the 60's/70's they espouced the "back to the land" movement and a few years later the fakes were just the opposit, YUPPIES!!! LOL

I hate that many people think with their emotions instead of using good ol’ common sense. Government-run schools no longer teach children to think critically so is it any wonder that so many people are unable to apply simple logic to resolve lives many questions and to make decisions
its no wonder these idiot younger people are so screwed up.
Teachers in the union indoctrinate our children into thinking that social justice is wonderful
and believe same-sex sex is something to celebrate.
and that people are racist for opposing President Obama’s ‘transformation of America’ and also that redistribution of wealth is a good thing.
Progressives have been masterful at misrepresenting the facts. For the progressive, the end justifies the means.
Progressives Lose. We the People Win!
Progressivism is a cancer that is spreading through this nation like a house on fire. Progressives are taking us down the road to European-style socialism.

The Attacks may have been planned but security for our Ambassador on 9/11 in a very very dangerous muslim country sure wasn't "planned". He is dead. Pitiful Obama. Simply Pitiful.

I dont understand why there wasn't more security there....
Each US embassy in Threat and these Arab Falls Countries should have Drone(Recon) roaming around the clock...

Millions of dollars of aid, yet no Bodies to protect the U.S soil in other places?

People should not be able freely come to embassy and protest.
ALL peaceful protest should be given a notice at hand.

Those who broke that rule, should be given a warning then if situation aggravates the US embassy security should be able to take actions that pertain to the conditional situation.

So you're saying that the USA should take away the Libyans' right to peacefully protest?

"The right to form groups, to organise and to assemble together with the aim of addressing issues of common concern is a human right. The ability to organise is an important means by which citizens can influence their governments and leaders. The right to freedom of association and assembly is protected in international and regional human rights treaties. These rights are applicable to any issue. Mass protest is a potent symbol of the exercise of this right."

http://www.hrea.org/index.php...

And:

The United States Constitution explicitly provides for 'the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances'" in the First Amendment.

Greetings from Germany to Ethiopia, Umaa :)

I don't think the Americans will start another all-out war with Libya but like Reagan did in 1986, the US will bomb Benghazi or towns with aircraft, Tomahawk missiles and/or drone missiles to "punish" some innocent Libyans for the actions of al Qaeda which Obama incidentally supported to overthrow and murder Colonel Gaddafi.

The Obama adminstration is reaping what it sowed.What did they expect, supplying arms to anarchic groups and calling them peaceful,democratic protesters with anti-aircraft guns and rocket launchers. What goes around comes around.
Storming and looting an embassy is unheard of in this morden age. It wouldn't have happened under Ghadaffi.

Isn't Obama the President? Of course, Americans hold im accountable for his failures. Isn't Obama in charge of providing protection for our Diplomats? Isn't Obama Commander in Chief?

Are you saying there was no security there? do you really believe that, or did the people you are parroting forget to tell about that little slip of logic?

Your post makes no sense.
The Ambassador was murdered in our own Consulate on 9/11. Obviously the Security was not up to the task.

That was the tragic "slip of logic".

So all our embassies should be missile proof?

Perhaps you missed all the news reports mentioning the firefight that took place before the RPG was fired into the embassy? Do you not know what a firefight is?

It is obvious that you did not engage your brain to think about this issue before you parroted what others said.

Independent thought is fun!

Embassys are out moded and no longer worth the money. This is the 21st Century. 10% are in Hell Holes where we can't provide adequate Security and the other 90% are just more Govt Employees living large off the American tax slaves.

We could save Billions by shuttering them ALL.
