The Patriot Act. You mean Bushs Patriot Act? The one that the Democrats had a fit over. Screaming Bush is eavesdropping on American citizens.
Bush ain't doing nothing now fool, Obama is targeting US citizens with drones and you worried about eaves dropping that happened 10 years ago.
You are the epitome of ignorance.

So in an attack on civilians, 32 escaped. and 4 died.
How is that a problem?
32 getting out against a terrorist driven uprising against our very presence, whitt too little security, with bad intelligence, and no prep for the 9-11 anniversarythat seems like a successful evacuation and great work on Obama's part.
If W would have saved 32 americans in a terrorist attack he would have gave himself a medal, heheh,
!5% casuality rate, of civilians against a co-ordinated terrorist attack. That is pretty good I think.
Obama seemed to have handled that pretty good.
I'm happy with that.
How many people died in 9-11 in the twin towers? ALL OF THEM.
A much less of a civilian survival rate on a terrorist attack right here on or own soil. did W fail to protect those Americans?
So Obama managed to protect 32 Americans against a co-ordinated terrorist attack on foreign soil and he is a bastard, but Everyone attacked here in America dies, and Bush did great?
Stupid GOP douche bags.
He protected no one. He didn't even care. 32 got out because two former SEALS, Against orders from your Precious Obama government, Saved them. Your precious Obama, refused to give them adequate security. Now they won't even let us talk to those survivors to find out what truly happened Sweep it under the rug And blame it on Hillary Clinton.
After all, after five years, it still bushes fault.

HOw MANY PEOLE DID W SAVE RIGHT HERE ON AMERICAN SOIL DURING 9-11???
NONE. After the first plane nothing was done no help came, ther were not even fighters in the air when the last plane was taken back by the passengers and cradhed in a field.
Obama got MOST of the people out of Bengazi unharmed.
AND OBAMA ACTUALLY KILLED THE GUY RESPONSIBE FOR 9-11.
W COULDN'T DO IT IN 8 YEARS. AND INVADED @ COUNTRIES
I know I was yelling but you GOP guys are just stupid.
Obama got no One out of Bengazi. They did it with out the pleaded, but Refused support from Obama.
Obama killed the guy that Bush helped find.
And there were fighters in air when the last aircraft hit the ground.
You Retard. Get your facts straight.

Yes that one.
The one Bush used to evesdrop on Americans,
Obama is using to kill terrorists.
Remember we are at War.
While Conservatives gripe about Illegal Immigrants, and then do nothing about it, Obama is actually tying to finish the War Your former leader, and Bathroom scene painter extrodinare W. started.

Have to admit that the Patriot Act is a violation of our Constitution and democrats used to whine and curse it untill they came into power and they not only kept it going in 2010 but made it even more unconstitutional. This is the main reason we cannot allow gun control of assault rifles on the American public, hell we all might have to take on our own army if they are ordered to arrest us all.

I guess you guys told me.
I'm such a loser.
Why can't I be more you guys.
I wish I could be a Conservative American,
But Im stuck being a liberal socialist.
I'm so dumb. Why can't I be smart like real Americans?
Why can't I believe W was a good president who made good decisions and
helped America? I know it's the truth.
Obama is such a bad man. I guess I'm being manipulated by his spell
I should just sit down and listen to Fox News, Rush, Glenn, and Hannity, those guys know how evil Obama really is. I don't want America to look like Nazi Germany.
Oh god what am I to do.
Please help me Conservstives, please make smart like you guys. Help me choke down the "truth" before the constant lies of the evil Obama destroy me.

Where you are going wrong is to think that it all or nothing. I questioned Bush and made many republican friends unhappy back when he was president.
The thing is he is no longer President and the guy who replaced him is much worse, we need to work on the here and now and quit wringing our hands over what Bush did years ago.
The decisions Bush made, like another poster noted, have not been undone by Obama, in fact he is taking them even further.

how could Obama have done nothing, as the headline suggests, if Panetta was involved?

Lets see Bush gets blamed for Katrina when a governor and a mayor should have been in charge.

But Obama gets a pass in Benghazi because Panetta was in charge.

Bush needed to ast after katrina. he didn't.

obama needed to act after benghazi, he did. obvious by the fact that panetta was there. the SecDef doesn't work on his own call.

Yep, Odumbo "acted"
all right-He and his minions concocted an elaborate story that the attacks were directly related to some anti-muslim video. Even arrested the film maker to ramp up the charade. Paleeeeze.

Again you point out how stupid you are..

the White House cannot arrest anyone, they have absolutely no police powers. the film maker was arrested for clearly breaking his felony parole stipulations on several accounts.

it would behoove yourself to learn the facdts before making such a fool of yourself constantly. parroting things you don't understand will never end well for you.

I wonder why Obama didn't act? Even after the attack had begun. He, along with others made mistakes and this does need to be investigated and things put in place to ensure it doesn't happen again.
Americans should never be hung out to dry like that.

if you had paid attention to the literally tons of info put out about this incident, you would know that obama did, in fact, act. the actions taken by the pentagon have been very clearly laid out time andn time again. they followed every protocol they were supposed to and got aid there as quickly as they could within those protocols. no one wast left hung out to dry.

Look at it this way, if the police knew that some
guy had a bomb factory in his basement and had plans
to set off a big bomb in the neighborhood school,
would the police be justified in using full force,
including a sniper, to prevent that person from
blowing up a bunch of children? Or do they wait
till after it happens and then get a warrant for his arrest?
All legal schmeagle.
