    Oh yeah? How did that small savage group know where the safe house was located? Who would have let a thing like that slip? Clinton is a fecking liar and trying to do damage control.

    Thank you, Secretary Clinton, for being a strong voice of diplomacy and reason.

    No matter how this all finally shakes out, we should be thankful for the measured and careful and thoughtful responses of our Secretary of State and our president.

    While the rw's runaround screaming that the sky is falling, we can only hope their cooler heads will prevail.

    Are we sure that this incident wasn't like when Major Hassan shot people to death? You know. Not a terrorist attack.

    Workplace violence.

    I'm sure that it happened in Libya. Just workplace violence from some disgruntled Libyans at the Embassy.

    It could be that too.

    Cairo too. Maybe this is just workplace violence. It's getting pretty big tonight.

    Now you assholes are going to say they shot each other?

    How much lower can you scum get?

    That battle went on for several hours. The ambassador died of smoke inhalation after the hospital worked to revive him.

    Stop making up new lies.

    It is the RESPONSIBILITY of the Host Country to protect Foreign Consulates and Embassies. The US can not legally or practically send hundreds of troops to every Consulate or Embassy world wide. Host Countries wouldn't allow it any more then we would allow hundreds of foreign troops in our Country.

    We have 2 failures in Libya. One is Libya did not live up to its responsibility or duty to protect the Consulate and the second is our own. We hire private security to Guard certain facilities. We have had repeated warnings for years now that buying the cheapest service is dangerous and counter productive. Exactly why would a guy getting paid minimum wage risk his neck for some foreign consulate?

    Obama is the President. He is responsible for who runs the Foreign service and who contracts for security. He is responsible for the lack of security internally at the Libya Consulate. Further if as I understand it, the Libyans don't actually protect the Consulate and we hire extra guards then he is responsible for that arrangement being allowed. Libya is responsibly for not protecting the external parts of the Consulate.

    Obama gets the blame. Just as Bush would have if it happened under his watch. Just as Romney will if elected and he does not change the practice.

    It must have been our number one geo political foe. "Russia". Too bad they were able to slip by Sarah Palin's watchful eye.
