Why weren't marine jets scrambled?   Who gave the stand down order?

Was it a Mulsin wedding? Did Obama order the fireworks?

Issa needs to convene a hearing right away.

Haven't I heard this before?

This is Obama's Bengazi Katrina 4th of July!

It's a cover up, don't buy the lie!
 
2013-10-29 08:17:33 AM  
Sounds like a cover-up.

Obama is so weak that he allows Yeminis to celebrate weddings with gunfire and scare our embassy personnel

I don't know much about Yemen, but if the Arab world has a West Virginia, Yemen would be it.

Standard procedure calls for a drone strike in either situation.

Better take 'em all out with a cruise missile just to be sure. After the appropriate fail-safe procedures, of course.

And this my fellow Farkers is why the 24/7 news cycle will be the end of civilization. Can you seriously picture the Cuban Missile Crisis with nonstop, jump-the-gun media reporting on the events? We'd all be dead for sure.

The new country/western band to prove American rednecks are open minded.

I really expected more nut-jobs making this out to be a conspiracy to cover up the fact that yet another US diplomatic outpost has been attacked.  Even the Blaze is reporting it straight, although the comments are pretty much what you'd expect:

What does it matter,
youtube,
surrender,
Obama hiding under his desk,
why didn't Obama make a statement,
flyover,
CIA,
Obama supports the terrorists.

Frankly, the fake derp here in yesterday's thread was far more entertaining.

BullBearMS: Meanwhile, "the President didn't know the NSA was spying on our allies" downgraded to "guess who got caught lying again".

WASHINGTON - The White House and State Department signed off on surveillance targeting phone conversations of friendly foreign leaders, current and former U.S. intelligence officials said Monday, pushing back against assertions that President Obama and his aides were unaware of the high-level eavesdropping.


You're in the wrong thread, sheep dip.

Who knew it was fireworks and when did they know it?!
 
2013-10-29 09:50:51 AM  
So...this is a false false flag operation?
 
2013-10-29 10:15:36 AM  
Where are the survivors?  Why are they hiding them?

Clearly this operation was a diverison to enable the CIA to destroy the conclusive evidence that would finally dispel the allegations that Genn Beck raped and murdered a little girl in the 1990's.

I know you're being facetious, but when I was in Iraq during the Bush administration every wedding included celebratory gunfire with AK-47s, and it caused confusion and misunderstandings all the time.

I hate the 24/7 news cycle, but I never thought about putting it in context of past events....that's pretty frightening.

That little girl was walking through her neighborhood at 3 am carrying a quantum physics book.

She was nine.

Look, I dunno about you, but I think any 9 year old carrying a quantum physics book is up to some pretty seriously freaky shiat.
