IF only Obama had taken precautions, he could have been able to claim that his term was free of TERRORIST attack.

But, well, history will show that he was too busy with campaign dinners to BE AT THE HELM doing HIS JOB !!!

The cables and other pertinent material will 'lost', unable to find, destroyed by mistake. That WILL be the Obama line.

You can probably bet that Secretary of Defense Leon Pannetta was on another weekend jaunt to CA to be with his family all paid by the taxpayers' dimes.

It's their cushy lives that are important, not the lives of those stattioned in UNSTABLE regions of the world....to hell with them...the Secretary of Defense is jetting to CA to spend his every weekend with his family!
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/16/leon...

The Secretary needs to "JUST TO GET YOUR MIND STRAIGHT AND YOUR PERSPECTIVE STRAIGHT." so he travels EVERY WEEKEND to CA at taxpayer EXPENSE and Amb Stevens family doesn't get to see their loved one anymore and neither do the 3 other AMericans get that opportunity!

It's ALL ABOUT THEIR COMFORT AND NOT THE SAFETY, NOT THOSE WHO RISK THEIR LIVES.

What a SHAM!

OBAMA'S GOTTA GO!
WE need people in powerful positions who are CAPABLE, CONCERNED with those who are risky their lives in dangerous countries.

All Obama can give us, Leon Pannetta whose concern is for HIS comfort, HIS family and not for our soldiers and diplomatic corp.

Calmly ask yourself why the gun running to criminals, the support of Communists destroying democratic principles in South America, the attempts to undermine Israel by "leaking" State secrets, the abandonment of traditional American focus on protecting our overseas citizens, the monetary policies diminishing and polarizing people already paying the majority of taxes, the imposed indoctrination of our youth to perversion and socialist ideology, etc. etc., have all benefited radical elements worldwide harming the US and her allies.

There hasn’t been a successful terrorist attack on American soil since President Obama stepped into the White House… and yet the worst terrorist attack on American soil in this nation’s history happened on Bush’s watch. I find it pathetically amusing to watch the disingenuous outrage over Libya by the very right-wing idiots who rallied around Bush after his incompetence brought about the deaths of over 3000 Americans on 9-11 but now want to play politics with the death of our ambassador.

An embassy is considered to be the 'soil' of the government who has the embassy.

"Technically, every embassy is legally considered to be American soil. Thus, if you visit an American embassy, American laws apply."

Therefore, terrorists did in fact attack Americans ON American soil.

Democrats refusing to arrest bin Laden, abandoning tens of thousands of good people in Somalia to death and starvation, attempting to buy off radical Islam by giving the bin Laden elements a country, depriving Bush of security briefings and a peaceful transition to the White House, interrupting even his ability to seat a full cabinet, etc... all THESE things led to 9/11. Elements of the Communist Democrat Party were still in position across our government, when 9/11 was finalized by the same people the Communist Democrats are helping today.

LOL, desperate much?

There is a big difference between American soil on our land and “American soil” in – let’s say – Iraq… surely you didn’t consider attacks on military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan the same as what happened on 9-11. Please tell me you’re not that stupid and desperate?

Sure there is... especially when loony Leftist Democrats have given Iraq back to the very terrorists responsible for the murders of our people on every occasion. No wonder you guys were undermining our troops there all along.

Nobummer has used EVERY policy put in by Bush after 9/11.

Nobummer rides the coattails of Bush's hard work and you make claims he did it? Pathetic.

Bin Laden is dead!!!.......but al queda is very much alive!

Again, you forgot to mention al queda's many attacks on US interest around the world, 1st WTC bombing (we guess according to you that Clinton "allowed" it!) and Fort Hood.

Not desperate. Technically correct.

U.S. Embassys ARE American soil.

ANY attack on American soil is an OUTRAGE against our country.

If you want to rationalize that 9/11 was more important than the death of our Embassador to Libya, you are sadly lacking the compassion for life (be it ONE American life OR several thousand).
