Obama will now mandate the strip searching of all white children and white grandmothers at airport security lines and he hopes the murders get the message he’s sending.

No media mention that this is the first US ambassasor killed since... the Carter administration.

That’s the media’s main goal: to hide that one fact, to suppress any public comparison.

I wonder if the killers of Adolph “Spike” Dubs (August 4, 1920 - February 14, 1979) the United States Ambassador to Afghanistan from May 13, 1978, until his death in 1979 were ever ‘brought to justice’?

Be patient. An investigation takes time.

First a clear link needs to be made with the perps and one of the groups on the DHS potential terrorist list. You know, people with traditional American values, US war veterans, members of Tea Party groups, gun rights advocates, people that post on Free Republic, and so on. /S

Most of the security guards stayed with the consulate personnel to the safe house and then exfiltrated after that location was burned down.

There are a number of wounded Libyan security guards that suffered gunshot wounds. I’m guessing that only one was a turncoat.

Actually, this is reminiscent of 2008, Obama was behind in the overall polls but was ahead of McCain in the economy, a financial crisis played right into his hands and he never looked back. Fast forward to 2012, Obama is leading in polls regarding his “foreign policy” why not have an international crisis, and capitalize on his “strength?”. This election is over, take it to the bank.

I'm wondering if there were any Marines stationed at the consulate.

I have read that the 2 who were killed came in from a different location (perhaps the embassy in Tripoli?).

I'm guessing that the consulate was protected 100% by Libyan forces.

Don't know if that's standard for a consulate; an embassy, I believe, always has Marine guards.

Fox reported that there were no Marines in the compound... only Stevens and three others... one a State Department Security Officer. sparky sent 50 Marines in after the attack and they are the only Americans there now. The Air Force flew the bodies of our fellow Americans to Europe and then home.

Actually, if Romney plays his cards right, this incident might be a re-run of the Iranian hostage crisis that sealed Carter's fate. McCain lost because Obama outspent him 3 to 1. Obama's margin was a paltry 6%. Reagan and Carter spent the same amount, and Reagan beat a sitting president by 10%, despite RINO John Anderson taking votes (7%) from Reagan as an independent candidate.

In 2008, McCain was trying to protect the status quo in face of a crisis.

In 2012, Obama is trying to protect the status quo in face of a crisis.

Neither is a good position for the American people. We tend to blame those in charge.

He had nothing to do with the video. Reportedly the film was produced by someone that no one seems to know. Starting to look the whole thing was a setup to create an excuse to carry out a planned attack.

“Bush would already have a team over there and planning action.”

Being that it was a 9/11 anniversary, Bush would have fortified the embassy and given the order “shoot to kill”. The best this coward could do is yell “I’m sorry, b-b-b-but, Fore”.

I did not realize that smoking was that deadly and took the shape of bullet holes.

So when does Erik Holder go over to Libya to get those rascals? Obama has invited them to the White House to have a beer with Him and the widow(s) of those killed.

The guy that made the movie about Mohamed will be hunted down by SEAL teams 1 thru 12, the US Marines, and Killer Drones. He and his family will be destroyed on sight in an appeasment jester to Barry's brothers

What truly pi$$es me off is that Bush stated that, “You are either with us or against us”.

GWB's original statement was actually "You are either with us or you are with the terrorists" a statement that far more people would agree with, perhaps not wanting to be "with" the USA or "with" Bush, but even less wanting to be with terrorists. The media almost immediately started rearranging the more powerful words.

So what type of senseless violence is justified? Sloppy English from the "master communicator."

Reagan bombed daffy Gaddafi.

Yes, and he laid low after that, eventually renouncing support of terrorism, albeit belatedly after Lockerbie. Play nice never works with the radical Muzz.

Reports are that the Marines stayed behind in the consulate as a last stand to give time for the others to escape...

Marines as heroes. This is not hard to believe. But what about the reports that since this was a consulate there were no marines? Were they just escorting an American diplomatic visitor?

That might work if Obama looked good during the crisis; however, he has looked anything but good. And the Middle East looks worse than ever.

He doesn't look good to me, and you, and a lot of others. Sure, the MSM is trying to make him look good, but what's new? And they tried mightily to make Romney look bad during his press conference but failed. And some of Obama's theatrics may backfire on him. Speaking of negativity, you are generating a lot of it.
