Handle terrorism? Oh, you're implying Romney, the guy who says that Russia is our number one threat and also the person who wants to start a war with Iran.

You know, as opposed to the current president, who has a very long list of dead terrorists that his administration has taken out.

Well, to be fair, Obama didn't fly in advance to Libya, put on his super-suit and personally wipe all those freaks out. He could have done that, you know, but he just didn't care.


I'm not even ready to joke about this yet. Seriously, submitter, you farking thumb-dicked shiat warlock.

For the record:

The ambassador knew the danger and deliberately put himself into it to try to get other personnel out of the consulate-the man died as a farking hero

Also killed in the attack were not one, but two ex-navy SEALs doing private contracting work for the State Dept. (mostly trying to get all the stinger missiles in "rebel" hands back out of them again, by hook or by crook). it's extremely likely the SEALs were the real target of the attack, and judging by the lack of enemy dead stacked like cordwood around the consulate, unaemed and taken by suprise in the inital phase of the attack.

Republicans are so happy about this and so quick to use it as an attack against Obama, if I was a conspiracy theorist I'd think the movie was funded by conservatives specifically to create issues in the middle east during the time before the election.

I have been thinking about the Libya ambassador death and I can't really think of many ways it could have been prevented without making the situation worse.

Only one I can think of is to build in essence a castle with a moat, gators, draw bridges and 50 foot walls. I don't know how quickly we could have built a fortress for our ambassadors, the message it would send that we built a fortress or if Libya would have allowed it.

I keep hearing the right (Hannity) saying we should have had more armed guards/marines there, but how would that had helped? The only way the marines could have stopped a mob who wanted to storm the compound would be to shoot the mob. And how would that have played out? There would be video showing our marines opening fire on an "unarmed" mob that I am sure would have had a few women and children in it which would make great video to piss off the middle-east more.

Am I missing something on how we could have better prevented this?

bullwrinkle: Vodka Zombie: How many bin Ladens did Romney kill, so far?

Right! And Obama is working hard at protecting America after all monitoring of electronic communications inside the U.S. has climbed 60 percent under Obama, how many people has Romney spied on?


Right! Obama went back in time and created the DHS after he failed to protect us on 9/11. And governments that are given illegitimate powers are always quick to do the right thing and repeal those powers. Right?

Stop being an asshole. Or go read a goddamn book. How about both?

Is that the same one who killed Osama bin Laden, has systematically dismantled Al Qaeda all over the world, and has brought forces to bear in Pakistan despite the risks to ensure terrorist infrastructure there is destroyed?

Or the one who has done...let's see....carry the one...nothing?

Can someone please quote where the administration came out and said it was over a movie and not that terrorists had used the protests as misdirection and cover for the attack?

Because that was the story I had heard that started the day after the attack, with the continuing protests being over the movie.

And now for the next contestant on "Most Disingenous Headlines By A Mouthbreathing Idiot"...

Ya know, subs, if the GOP platform actually had any merit whatsoever, you wouldn't need to sink to these levels. I know you don't have much to lose in your own life, being a pathetic loser and all, but think of all those after you who will be humiliated by the sound of your name.

Funny, some people are so stupid. The question asking if Romney has laid out a better economic vision, 39% selected Romney. "I won't apologize" and "12mm jobs" aren't economic visions. They're platitudes that are meaningless without any direction.

Romney hasn't actually laid out an economic vision. Also, 41% think that Romney was right with his 47% statement.
