gaspode: Wow that AC130 could have done a farking super job of making a bad situation about 1000 times worse.


how so? By killing the attackers? there were NO protesters there...just the attackers.

timujin: Someone posted a list a while back of all of the attacks on U.S. facilities during the Bush administration. Some of which, if I remember the post correctly, ended in American casualties. Does anyone know what the fark I'm talking about or am I going to have to do actual research?


Per wiki, there were 4 fatal attacks at U.S. diplomatic facilities under Reagan, 1 attack under Bush I, but no one was killed, 2 fatal attacks under Clinton, and 9 fatal attacks under Bush II.

Benghazi was Obama's 2nd.

Just when you think McCain might have regained some semblance of sanity, he does something like this.

His complete abandonment of principles after losing to GWB in 2000 is one of the most shameful
transformations in US political history.

Better hundreds of innocent people die horribly than any Americans ever be put at risk!

farking Nazis, man, I swear to God. Godwin or not, that is some xenophobic, nativist, murderous and reprehensible bullshiat to even suggest that the thing to do for riot control is to just murder everyone from the air.

mr lawson: There is a problem with that..
"They" had real-time video
"They" had access to a AC-130 gunship that was near by


Are you goddamned serious? You think ordering an AC 130 to bomb the mob (which was by then in the process of trashing the consulate) would have been a sane option? When what little information they had was confused and conflicting?

shiat, man. Lay off the Call of Duty.

...a stinging rebuke of President Barack Obama's handling of the terrorist attack on an American consulate in Libya,

At an event to rally relief for superstorm victims McCain said this?

Yeesh.

The continued efforts of the GOP to try to turn the deaths of Americans into political capitol has been nauseating enough at regular campaign rallies, doing so at a relief rally smacks of desperation and petty partisanship.

Party before Country Republicans as usual.

Where was all this outrage on 9/11 when Bush's continued insistence on not taking Al Qaeda seriously led to the greatest terrorist attack on America EVAH?

As far as I can tell Obama and State have handled the situation as well as one could hope and this feigned outrage rings completely hollow.

Just U.S. embassies and consulates?

Bush: 5 embassies, 3 consulates, and the American Center in Kolkata. 50+ dead altogether.

Well...if John McCain really feels so strongly....Impeach Obama.

Problem is that "Hanoi John" seems to have no problem being weak on national security when it comes to leaving our Mexican border unsecured...and letting illegal aliens enter en masse. And, I have not even got to his selling out the Vietnam POWs some years ago
 
2012-10-31 06:28:53 AM  
Why bother with an AC-130? We shoulda just nuked the whole country the minute one of those terrorists stepped on our sovereign soil! Of course Barry Hussein 0bama would never attack his pals.

It's sad to be a republican that was pwned by a more evil republican, and coming out of the experience by coming to the conclusion that in order to make it as a republican, you have to be even MORE brutal and evil. The most brutal and evil republican wins the primary.

And people still seem to cling onto the hope that republicans will somehow do some soul-searching after this election and do something about the crazies in their midst. You'd have better luck trying to make a zombie living again.

They're never going to get better. Only worse.
 
2012-10-31 06:33:13 AM  

lantawa: The premise that a coverup is occurring is an entirely reasonable premise. This bullshiat of watching our President squawk on about a farkin' you tube movie, while our embassy smoldered, was truly disgusting. Gross incompetence or massive coverup. Your choice.


There is actually a third choice.

Obama is a competent moderate centrist who has made very few errors as president. Republicans desperately need SOMETHING to criticize him for before the election.

This incident is the best they can do. 

SPIN BABY SPIN!
 
2012-10-31 06:34:03 AM  

kingoomieiii: That's why every show on Fox is airing storm footage while only talking about Libya. Sure, 10x as many people have died in this storm, but only one of these events can be plausibly blamed on the president.


So I know it's ethically wrong for FOX to be the GOP's propaganda wing. It's not even a grey area, they are blatantly pro anything GOP and con anything !GOP. But why is it legal? When does this arrangement cross the line from a sympathetic TV station to being GOP TV? At which point the GOP's revenues and taxes become pretty screwy I would think, I suppose Fox's advertisers all know that they are implicitly funding the GOP and the GOP's battle against reason, science, God and America.
 
2012-10-31 06:34:34 AM  

mr lawson: those in charge who could have helped, had access to information and resources to help, did nothing?


The problem with this is that you KNOW the current administration is only too happy to use drone strikes etc to take out suspected terrorists. There is not the slightest reluctance to 'pull the trigger' on such occasions. What on earth would lead you to think that if this was actually the situation you describe they would not have immediately done so? Only, it seems, that you wish it to be so.

But, but....hurr, durr, him bad, him tawking bouts dis at wrongs event, I gnashes teefs at hims!.


...so I guess that's why the only real thing that non-F*X sources are attacking him on is whether he called it a terrorist attack quickly enough?

True. That is a credible third choice. Truth lies somewhere amongst the three choices. Spin, indeed. Getting dizzy and agitated on this spinning ride from both sides, and will be glad when we get to this point next week. and this election is over.

Did your parents have any children they were proud of, or just you?

You know, not to defend Lantawa's silly opinion, but you never addressed his point. You only attacked him and continued to do so. He appears to be agreeing with McCain, is Calling him a poopy head the best you can do to refute him? you see the irony in implying he is childish right?

He agrees with anyone who keeps trying to make Benghazi into the new Watergate.

News-flash. Working at a diplomatic facility in a country hostile to the U.S. is dangerous. That's why we've had 15 attacks on diplomatic facilities since Reagan, including 9 under the last administration.

Trying to press this issue when you're supposed to be drumming up support to help Americans who are currently suffering in America is the act of a partisan shill.

But your concern is noted.


Make no mistake, I don't agree with McCain or Lantawa, but you'd do much better to say McCain is a tool and anyone who believes him is a fool than to just blow off his defenders by attacking them. It just makes you look like, well, the GOP. We're better than that.

"This president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the American people or he is so grossly incompetent that he is not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces. It's either one of them," McCain told Romney volunteers gathered here at a Victory Center.
