The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Administration was warned of Islamist threat in June, failed to respond

Benghazi: Murdering, pedophile-loving, ignorant savage celebrates murdering Americans.

Listen to these details buried in the CBS News report about the attacks in Libya and Egypt:

According to al-Sharef, the angry mob stormed the consulate after the U.S. troops who responded fired rounds into the air to try and disperse the crowd. Al-Sharef said there had been threats that Islamic militants might try to take revenge for the death of al Qaeda’s No. 2 commander Abu Yahya al-Libi, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in Pakistan in June, and he said the U.S. consulate should have been better protected.

Confirming al-Libi’s death for the first time in a video posted online Monday, al Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahri called on Muslim’s in al-Libi’s native Libya to take revenge for his death.

Al-Sharef said the Libyan guards employed to guard the consulate building were far outgunned by the protesters, and thus retreated when the building was stormed.

In plain English, the Obama Administration should have been prepared to repel such attacks, but failed to take precautions to protect U.S. citizens. As a result, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith, and two U.S. Marines were murdered by Islamic terrorists.

Obama is not competent. Islamists view him as weak at best, and an ally at worse.

Foreign policy just became a campaign issue.

    Why didn’t the marines shoot back after they came over the wall?

    • Phelps says:

      Because in Libya there weren’t any Marines there. The two that were killed came in from another location to try to save the Ambassador.

      If you are asking about the Egyptian violation, where there were Marines present… that’s a damned good question. The question in Libya is why Marines weren’t there to start with and why we were farming our security out to the Libyans.

    So we have watchers that see everything but are paralyzed by not being able to do anything useful about it are now requesting you allow them to continue spying on you. And if you remove that institutional paralyzation, you might have a very effective tool for tyranny.

    This just gets better by the day. It’s like they’re going to fail themselves into power. And we’re watching it going “Where the hell’s the brake on this thing? Made by GM? Ah, damnit.”.

    Seems this has less to do with a movie and more to do with shedding more US blood on 9/11.

    A point has been brought up about Obama making such a deal about his killing Muslims, to get poll numbers. I would think this had more to do with the violence than a stupid movie that no one knows of.

    Then two Marines were killed, actually the more important thing than an ambassador, how many did they kill on the way out? None, because Obama is worried that Islamic blood will drop his numbers.

    Typically an Embassy has about a small squad-worth of Marines whose primary mission is to protect the classified material within the Embassy. Bengazie has a Consulate, NOT and Embassy. The local guard force there would be all locals.
    The question I have is why was the Ambassador running around in Bengazie rather then at the Embassy in Tripoli?
