Dear T-bagg'n crook, would you please prove Obama's recent deviation from previous embassy security protocol instituted by Cheney/Bush/Rice?
. Please show instances where Cheney/Bush had increased security forces to protect our embassies during previous 9/11 anniversaries?
You obviously know as much about security as I do about the mating habits of the Tze-Tze fly.

Who knows , without indepth research , what routine bullitens or alerts were or were not put out by what admin when and for what areas.Including beefing up U.S. on-site embassy security and the host nations outside security.

In the early days of the Cold War it was common to send out alerts for potential violence from May Day protests in certain countries like Japan .

Americans don't want to be forced to retaliate in kind because of the resulting collateral damage. We cause enough of that purely by accident. To open fire on these Muslim crowds would be an act
of extreme folly and just what Obama's Republican detractors
wish he would be foolish enough to do.

The worse the situation is, the more American deaths there are, the better the Republicans like it. The cheer it on.

The President has responsibilities. Morons like Romney are free to shoot off their cowardly, draft-dodging mouths. Talk is cheap when you're not the one taking responsibility and Romney's is about as cheap as it gets.

The man has no shame or conscience.

Uh-huh. Bush got 4500 Americans killed in Iraq. Reagan about three hundred in Beirut. I won't mention the 290 innocent civilians in the Iranian airliner. Seventeen in Grenada by friendly fire during his publicity stunt invasion. All for no good reason.

Talk about filth!

Thousands of Muslims protest the America in Jerusalem and Gaza Strip amid clashes with Israeli forces; protesters set fire to US flag. Still billions of American taxpayers continue to flow into the jihadists in Gaza, Judea and Samaria while Obama's attends a Vegas Campaign fundraiser.

At least 6 U.S. troopers were murdered in Cold Blood this weekend.

Is Obama really going to stay blind to these murders ?

I can tell you if this doesn't stop troop morale will collapse.

Who wants to be the last U.S. trooper murdered in 2014 ?

Soon parents will be besieging Congress on this ugly fact.

. Obama, the smart Warrior!

Another Lib caught in the " Information vacuum ".

LEFTY pissed and moaned about 'Waterboarding ' but Obama uses drones againist a nation we send money to...Pakistan , to kill families , not waterboard individuals.

If LEFTY thinks that killing a Taliaban or AQ in Pakistan in bed at night with his wife and children isn't collateral damage LEFTY is insane.Those attacks are by explosive devices not ' Silver bullets'.

Most of the collateral damage in Iraq wasn't collateral damage but a side show civil war of Arab vs. Arab. Of Shia vs. Sunni , of Kurd vs. Arab.

U.S. rules of engagement were very very tight and at times an endangerment to our troops as they still are.

Why doesn't LEFTY look into the weeds before he makes his wild azz accusations ?

Four more dead American soldiers TODAY....by an Afgan soldier in our midst. Obama's strategy of pretending the Afgan troops are our friends and hanging out with them may merit some revision if we are smart enough to elect Romney.

Obama allowed attacks against "us" at Fort Hood?
. U.S. Major, Nidal Hasan (the Fort Hood shooter) is an American; he's one of us!
. Again, in 2005, Cheney/Bush ignored internal Army report regarding Nadal's radical tendencies
. Cheney/Bush had a history to ignore reports like "Osama Bin Laden intends to strike inside the US" and internal Army reports on terrorism
. Like 911, Bush/Cheney have allowed Major Nadal Hasan to commit the Fort Hood Massacre
. If Obama should assume liability for Fort Hood, Cheney/Bush should assume 100% liability for the 911 falk-Up!
