They sense the weakness in our current administration and will continue to push the envelope until we smack them down. Attack and kill our folks without consequences and it will happen over and over.

Normally the response to this kind of event would be the recalling of our embassy. Why has this not happened?


Why did we even reestablish an embassy in Libya before things were stabilized?

This administration seems to make doubling down on stupid it's official policy.

(the "apology" comment put out by the embassy in Cairo - not the W.H.) came BEFORE the attacks not after. Jesus H. Christ.
and may well have escalated the situation.

And the fact that Romney would try to lie about it to stoke the idiots of his party
We live in a remarkable age in which citing official comments made by officials appointed by and working for this Administration is considered a lie.

Those Muslims in the streets who invaded our embassy in Egypt are just the extremists. Isn't that what we'll be told? Well I can't tell them apart from the "good" Muslims who were protesting the Mubarek government, and neither can Obama because they are the same people.

And the Muslims in Libya who killed our consul are the same people we sent our military to support when they wanted to get rid of Gaddafi.

How do two separate communities spontaneously react violently to an event, holding an innocent third party responsible? They are obviously being given information from a source that is misleading them or intentionally stirring them up. And what is the common denominator among those communities? It is the beliefs of the men they look to for religious guidance.

Either those men are extremists who must be identified and ex-communicated by the "good" Muslims, or they are mainstream Muslims. Since the "good" Muslims haven't ostracised them, the only valid conclusion left is that they are mainstream Muslims. In which case, mainstream Islam has declared ideological war on the United States and its people.

Last time I checked, Islam is not our enemy and America is neutral in regards to religion.

This is a platitude. What is Islam? Of course America is neutral regarding religion. However, the currently dominant discourse within the greater Sunni sphere of politically active Islam is very much our enemy now. You may deny it all you wish, but that will not make it false.

Check again. Catholics are clearly targets of our government.

I'm callin BS. no way the embassy releases a statement without first going through the homeland. Fricking lie after lie. Pres covering up his sympathetic tendencies for his Muslim brothers.


This is what makes sense to me. I seriously doubt our embassy staff were winging it during such a controversial situation.
