FAIRBORN, Ohio — Starting his Ohio campaign rally on a somber note, Vice President Joe Biden paused to remember the four American diplomats killed in Libya — casualties that included the United States ambassador to Libya.

"As we always have, Americans must be steadfast, resolved and committed in the face of such horrific events," Biden told supporters.

Biden told supporters that foreign service officers and other diplomatic personnel serving in dangerous countries were just as brave as any member of the military.

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear for this graphic art reality!

did our diplomats take out Osama? does the upcoming White House collaboration on the Killing Osama movie mean there will be more riots/murders when THAT movie comes out?

They can’t even carry and the guards either run away or help the attackers.

What a silly statement.

Our soldiers are not unfortunate unarmed victims of an incompetent Administration and a bloodthirsty mob of scumbags.

They are warriors who enter battle armed and trained to kill vermin. And they succeed far more often than they lose.

I want to know how may people at the state department have been fired for their failure with this event.

With all due respect to the late Ambassador, you can’t compare him with active duty military who face live fire on a daily basis.

Great point. To me this is payback for “ bin laden died, we came we saw , he died.” boasts.

O , joe, hill don’t realize that the Arab world is much more patient than the latest newscyle easily lead parts of our population.

Who was responsible for the Ambassador’s safety? Was he adequately protected?

Sorry Rimshot. It's NOT supposed to be that way. If your boy will stop going around bowing and apologizing, these lowlife bastards would have some respect for America.

Bravo Sierra. There are US State Department employees actively working with Islamist terrorists and they’re led by Hillary Clinton (and Huma Abedin-Weiner).

Plugs never served in the military. That is why the words Diplomatic Corps and Marine Corps are interchangeable in his befuddled mind.

It is the ultimate disrespect to these dead Americans, and to America itself, that these assholes can’t take the day off from campaigning to at least look like they might give a shit and do something about this. God, we’ve got complete dumbasses in the White House!

That’s the biggest, boldfaced bunch of crap I have ever heard.

Comparing our military bravery to ‘ambassadors’? Our military travels to the most dangerous places on the face of the earth KNOWING they can be killed.

Ambassadors reside in opulent places around the world, in comfort, PROTECTED by our military.
