Oh look a suicide attack against a US Embassy in the middle east.

Could not be any form of retaliation for US foreign policy could it? A form of Pay Back for the killing of innocent people?

No, could not be that. Has to be they hate our freedom and liberty. A freedom and liberty that we actually do not have anymore.

The attack in Benghazi and the US lack of response, has emboldend terrorists all around the world.

Obama made a HUGE mistake by not providing support to our Benghazi Embassidor.

America now appears to be weak and vulnerable.

Be less shallow.

This is not even Bush II's fault. It is crazyness of fundamentalist terrorists who have been rendered irrevelant by the Arab Spring, but who want to carve themselves back into the picture.
You might as well blame your own mother as blame President Obama for the winds of history.

I would not call it Terrorism. That is a label used by government and media.

When truly looking at it by taking a couple of steps backwards and seeing the entire picture. I would call it "Retaliation" or "Pay Back".

The word Terrorism has been used by government and media to put fear into the people.

Oh no, whats that? Who is that behind the corner? Is that a terrorist? Have no fear citizen, I am super government and I here to protect you, but, first, you will need to sacrifice your dignity and liberty to me.

When I look at the actions of the US over the past 20 years forcing it's will on different nations, murdering innocent people, invading sovereign countries, I would say it is a form of retaliation.

Think of it this way. You are at a wedding (this is exactly what is going on in Afghanistan and Pakistan), you got a cousin or some form of family member getting married. Then a couple of hell-fire missiles launched from a drone hit the party. Family members dead, etc.. The first emotion after the dust settles is anger. And with that anger comes revenge.

Now take that scenario with the millions of innocent people killed all over the middle east at the US and it's allies. What would be the outcome? Retaliation.

But the mind set of the western world is that of, nobody has the right to fight back. The world just has to take our punishment and like it.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

No, Conaliza Rice had the info she needed on her NSA desk, and nobody in that Bush administration was competant enough to put 2 and 2 together.

Also, GW Bush had ordered that all terrorist investigations that pointed toward the Saudis. And 17 of the 19 Bin laden Terrorists of September 11, 2001 were Saudis.

Thus, Bin Laden got a free pass, courtesy of GWB.

What a fkn lie!! LMAO

Bin laden got found.....courtesy of GWB, moron.

The left claimed Bush quit looking for him....uh, no. He cancelled Clinton's "bin laden" unit that were doing NOTHING!

Examples of Mr. Obama, now in his fifth year as president, using Bush-era measures:

Special operations forces. One of the first steps taken by President Bush after Sept. 11 was to revive, fund and expand special operations forces as the dog that would hunt down and kill terrorists.
President Bush also made U.S. Special Operations a war-independent command, just like U.S. Central Command, meaning it could plan and execute its own battle plans.
The U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the Army's Delta Force and Navy’s SEAL Team 6 mostly had focused on hostage rescue. After Sept. 11, they started receiving the manpower and intelligence to become manhunters. Their biggest successes: Saddam Hussein; al Qaeda’s top Iraq terrorist, Abu Musab Zarqawi; and Osama bin Laden.
Special Ops/Intelligence. The Bush administration fused commandos with the nation’s intelligence agencies — the CIA, the National Security Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency — into task forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
President Bush also transferred a highly secretive military intelligence unit, which specialized in technical surveillance and intercepts, to the Joint Special Operations Command so that commandos and intelligence experts could work together directly.
Predator strikes. The Bush administration established Predator drone bases in Pakistan to strike at al Qaeda and Taliban extremists in that country’s frontier badlands, where U.S. ground troops cannot go.

Nobama didn't change a thing, didn't add a thing and DIDN'T know where bin laden was until he was told the evening before by the CIA that....the courier caught by Bush revealed the doctor who told of the bin laden's compound in Pakistan.

Most were originally from Saudi Arabia, some from Egypt, Syria and others...
But most of them hadn't been living in their country of origin for some time. Screwball...

Jihadist come from all over the world....you're attempt to lable the hijackers to the Saudi's and then Bush is asinine and a pile of crap.

Condi Rice had the same info on her desk that Clinton had for 8 years. Terroists poised to strike the US.....when, where, how and methods weren't known. So bill attacked Mt. Carmel and Ruby Ridge...that really helped didn't it??

Your statement that 17 were Saudi's is an outright lie. Most were originally from Saudi Arabia, some from Egypt, Syria and others...

When Clinton attacked Bin Laden in his camp, the GOP called it "WAGGING THE DOG" and dismissed it.

You are so full of shit you leave a stain on the curb.

And when Bush had Bin Laden corered and surrounded at Tora Bora, he LET HIM GO FREE....
he LET HIM GO FREE....
he LET HIM GO FREE....
he LET HIM GO FREE....
he LET HIM GO FREE....
he LET HIM GO FREE....
he LET HIM GO FREE....

he LET HIM GO FREE....
