Oh come on now, be a sport. The Derp Squad really wants to impeach the President and force the Sec of State to resign because of this.

Still though, you have to admit that Omaba bad. Really bad.

I posted this in an earlier thread:

Let's look at major terror attacks under the past several administrations, shall we? Negating Iraq/Afghanistan which are war zones.

Reagan Years:
1983:
Lebanon: U.S. embassy is destroyed in suicide car-bomb attack; 63 dead, including 17 Americans. Same year and place, suicide bombers exploded truck near U.S. military barracks at Beirut airport, killing 241 marines.
Kuwait: shiate truck bombers attacked the U.S. embassy and other targets, killing 5 and injuring 80.

1985:
Rome: airports in Rome and Vienna were bombed, killing 20 people, 5 of whom were Americans. Bombing linked to Libya.

1986:
Greece: A bomb exploded aboard TWA flight 840 en route from Rome to Athens, killing 4 Americans and injuring 9.
Germany: Libyans bombed a disco frequented by U.S. servicemen, killing 2 and injuring hundreds.

1988:
Scotland: N.Y.-bound Pan-Am Boeing 747 exploded in flight from a terrorist bomb and crashed into Scottish village, killing all 259 aboard and 11 on the ground. Passengers included 35 Syracuse University students and many U.S. military personnel.

Reagan death toll: Quite a few deaths but no major attacks.

George HW Bush:

Well...pretty much zero. None cited that I saw. Good job!

Bush Sr. Death toll: Excellent, no major terror attacks.

Clinton:
1993:
New York: bomb exploded in basement garage of World Trade Center, killing 6 and injuring at least 1,040 others.

1995
Oklahoma City: car bomb exploded outside federal office building, collapsing wall and floors. 168 people were killed, including 19 children and 1 person who died in rescue effort.
Saudi Arabia: car bomb exploded at U.S. military headquarters, killing 5 U.S. military servicemen.

1996
Saudi Arabia: truck bomb exploded outside Khobar Towers military complex, killing 19 American servicemen and injuring hundreds of others.

1998
Kenya and Tanzania: truck bombs exploded almost simultaneously near 2 U.S. embassies, killing 224 (213 in Kenya and 11 in Tanzania) and injuring about 4,500.

2000
Yemen: U.S. Navy destroyer USS Cole heavily damaged when a small boat loaded with explosives blew up alongside it. 17 sailors killed.

Death toll: Plenty (most so far...but wait!)

Bush Jr:
2001
9/11: 2992 people killed

2002
Pakistan: bomb explodes outside American consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, killing 12.

2003
Saudi Arabia: suicide bombers kill 34, including 8 Americans, at housing compounds for Westerners.

2004
Saudi Arabia: terrorists storm the U.S. consulate, killing 5 consulate employees. 4 terrorists were killed by Saudi security.

2005
Jordan: suicide bombers hit 3 American hotels, Radisson, Grand Hyatt, and Days Inn, in Amman, Jordan, killing 57.

2008
Yemen: a car bomb and a rocket strike the U.S. embassy in Yemen as staff arrived to work, killing 16 people, including 4 civilians.
India: Mumbai attacks. 300 people are wounded and nearly 190 people die, including at least 5 Americans.

Bush death toll: Congrats, you win the death toll prize! Maybe next time you won't sit on intel from the previous president.

Obama:
2009-2011: A bunch of failed terror plots.

2012
Benghazi, Libya: OMG 4 people die!

Obama death toll: basically 4 farking people.

Oh and he farking got Bin Laden. So STFU about Benghazi you asshats.
 
2012-11-02 02:31:29 PM
i heard they were all too busy watching some youtube video and nationalizing the means of production to craft any kind of meaningful response to benghazi. apparently we wouldn't have even heard about the whole thing except that patriotic members of the US military reached out to romney for real leadership and he told the world.

Their narrative is that this time it was an ambassador which magically made it the worse thing in decades. Or that was their narrative until it didn't stick. Now it's just vague he did something bad.
 
2012-11-02 02:36:21 PM
One of our ballistic missile subs could have had 16 one megaton warheads raining down on Benghazi in mere minutes! That would have certainly saved the lives of the consulate staff and not caused any long-term political or diplomatic ramifications! 0bongo has farted his last Socialistic!

I thought he personally armed and led the attackers and killed the Ambassador by garroting him with his Kenyan socialist birth certificate while singing Negro spirituals.

And Reagan bravely decides to cut and run.

It doesn't matter. It's like trying to explain the facts of that whole Fast and Furious farce. So long as these gibbering half-wits FEEL that something is amiss, the truth just doesn't belong in their rocky, little heads.

? Unnamed sources and no time line. Yeah, gold standard article.

And the article did point out that here was basically no help around. In Libya? If there wasn't then that in and of it self was a major farking screw up. No help less then 6 hours away?! Bull-shiat.

The article pointed out the Americans were heavily armed and supported by Lybian forces. What were you expecting us to have in Lybia? The Seventh Calvary? The 82nd Airborne?

The decision was made to go in. You go in. You don't leave people and material in harms way with help > 6 hours away. And yes, they could know it was going to take 6 hours when the shiat hit the fan. But you send what you got when the alarm rings.

Glad to see that they did reject the idea of bombing the bee-jujubes out of them.

The ambassador to the Queen in England has a full detachment of Marines to protect him. And that's in England. I would expect more protect than that for an ambassador in Libya.

AirForceVet: /I'm not fond of armchair generals.


Sorry but that's all I've got. I cant begin to get into details about tactics or exact weapons to be used. However I can tell you that Libya is more dangerous than England for our ambassadors. If it helps dont think of me as an armchair general. Think of me as an armchair logistics guy.

There were BDS agents, but I guess only Marines count because armchair derpsters don't know what the BDS is or what they or the Marines actually do.

It's pretty pathetic how you dolts are desperately trying to parlay this into a scandal. If is the worst dirt you can get Obama, maybe you should give up. Or, of course, just make up a bunch of sh*t.

vpb: There were BDS agents, but I guess only Marines count because armchair derpsters don't know what the BDS is or what they or the Marines actually do.


Truly I have no idea what goes into the training of a BDS agent. I used Marines only because that's what I've seen at the embassies and consulates I've visited around the world. Yeah, I'm that guy. If I go to a foreign country I check in. And I saw more guards (that happen to be Marines) at the consulate in Lithuania then were in Libya. Unless one BDS agent is worth 5 Marines in a fire fight then someone really really messed up in Libya.

Plus having help 6+ hours out.

Glen Doherty, one of the casualties, was part of the relief force sent from Tripoli to Benghazi.

Quick: Obama is competently handling a natural disaster using the same administration that Romney wanted to shut down, and Bush sat on and did nothing with. Find something!

"Fast and Furious"? No, old and busted.

College Records? No, we tested it with Trump and it flopped.

Benghazi? What does Mr. Ghazi have to do with this?

What, it's a city? Hell, just run with it.

Facebook is derped up with Fox News informed morons about this. Thanks, NPR. It's nice to have a reasoned view of the attack and the response.

Bad? Yes. Worse than any other Embassy attack? No. But are they herping to the derp? yep.

It's amazing that people think the President has instantaneous knowledge about everything that happens in the world and can respond to everything personally.

There's delegation, people. I'd presume Obama didn't know anything about Benghazi until after everything was too late to make a difference.
