    A beautiful tribute to Chris Stevens. And, a decided lack of apology for America's values.

    It's The Future MUST NOT belong to those who slander the prophet of islam speech.

    It was a good campaign speech. Worthy of the DNC convention.

    I'm sure the dead ambassador would have prefered some protection and his life.

    Might be nice if his security team had real bullets doncha think??

    Would real bullets have made the situation better?

    Kent State had real bullets

    Nice tribute but still with the video angle in a subtle way:



    That is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity.

    There’s no video that justifies an attack on an embassy. There’s no slander that provides an excuse for people to burn a restaurant in Lebanon, or destroy a school in Tunis, or cause death and destruction in Pakistan.


    Let us remember that Muslims have suffered the most at the hands of extremism. On the same day our civilians were killed in Benghazi, a Turkish police officer was murdered in Istanbul only days before his wedding; more than 10 Yemenis were killed in a car bomb in Sana’a; several Afghan children were mourned by their parents just days after they were killed by a suicide bomber in Kabul.

    The Navy Seals were not assigned to him...

    I think the video angle matters, insofar as people outside of the U.S. in these regions don't even understand the concept of free speech.

    You just love that apples and oranges strawman angle. Yeah real bullets might have made a difference. We'll never know... now will we?

    Might have helpled if security was raised as general procedure on the anniversary of 9/11 too!

    I'm sure you have another strawman argument for that too.

    Hillary Clinton and the State Dept dropped the ball. The Ambassador himself knew he was in danger and no one gave a shit!

    No comparison. Kent State has nothing to do with dirtbags attacking an embassy and guards with no way to defend.

    Get real.
