So, since this was a terrorist attack, and not because of the video. Why Mr Obama , Mrs Clinton was the embassy attacked?
Has anyone DEM or GOP explained why?
This hit was a two-fer: Get the gay man AND the Infidel!
Retaliation for two AQ leaders recently killed.
They hate us. Great Satan and all that. Infidels.
AQ obviously not on its heels either.
Agree. Islamofascists love to murder gay men. Why do the Democrats insist on sending gay men into areas where being gay is tantamount to an eventual death sentence?
And of course, GM is alive, Osama is dead was the match.
Lots of good reasons already posted, but there is one more and it has Obama and his team terrified. While Obama was asleep at the switch, the terrorists were watching and planning. This didn’t happen overnight and Team Obama never caught it.
There is one other reason, and I think it concerns Obama and his image: post 9/11, Bush kept us safe. This happened on Obama’s watch.
Why have you lied over the years and defamed an innocent man by telling groups your wife was killed by a drunk truck driver, when she was not.
The area had some very bad guys (alqaeda types) in militias but most of the locals didn't like them. There were a lot of people on the ground who were "collecting information" on them, so that the gov't could shut them down.
This attack not only let the "bad guys" kill the popular ambassador (and stick their finger into the eyes of the US and Libyan government) but it resulted in the shut down of a fairly large intelligence gathering program.
I don't know if Obama pointed to the video to obscure the real story or not. But keeping up with the fake story was a mistake, since the internet let anyone with an internet connection connect the dots.
I hate to link to myself, but my rant connecting the dots is here.
