Congress pretty much sucks. It’s not doing squat; not raising Hell about this.

Their blood is on Obama's hands.

Announcing our withdrawal date certain caused this and other American deaths to come.

While the MSM focuses on Libya they are ignoring the murder of Americans in Afghanistan. The Obama Administration rules of engagement allows Afghans that American taxpayers have armed and trained to murder Americans and get away with it. Since Obama took, over Americans in Afghanistan are sitting ducks. The MSM and the Obama Administration repeat stories about burning Korans and blame Americans.

The MSM and Obama Administration allow Americans to be killed, our embassies to be attacked and our country to be weakened.

This has to be more than just incompetence. This looks like treason.

Rule #1...

Never Ever Trust a muslim!

Deception is their sacred duty, and they are very good at it.

They have one major weakness we fail to take advantage of, they want, they desire and dream of being beaten into submission and constantly, continually oppressed, even after all of that...NEVER EVER TRUST a muslim.

I did business with Arabs for years and found them far more trustworthy than any Korean or Frenchman

What personal one on one experience have you ever had?

C’mon. I’ve interacted with muslims for all of my life. They certainly have a kind of principles but it is mostly alien to our understanding.
I also think you don’t have to mix bazaar and battlefield ethics.
I’ll certainly could willingly have some kind of commerce with muslims but they aren’t my comrades in arms to go into battle for sure. Especially if I’m goint to fight another muslims.

left out of most of the stories...

Friday night's "well-coordinated" suicide assault on Camp Bastion resulted in the destruction of six Harrier strike aircraft and two others damaged. The members of the suicide assault team wore US Army uniforms and "appeared to be well equipped, trained and rehearsed," the International Security Assistance Force said.

Funny, but I just read a blatantly pro-democrat newspaper’s opinion section earlier today, and the writer was naming dear leader’s actions on Afghanistan as one of many reasons to vote him back in in November.

Chicago

By Ryan Haggerty, Dawn Rhodes and Annie Sweeney Tribune reporter

9:55 a.m. CDT, September 16, 2012

A Hillside teenager has been charged with trying to detonate a car bomb outside a bar in downtown Chicago, following months of surveillance in which he boasted to undercover federal agents of ignoring reprimands from a mosque leader against plans for terrorism, the U.S. attorney’s office announced.

Adel Daoud, 18, parked a green Jeep Cherokee in front of the bar Friday night, then tried to detonate a device he believed to be a bomb as he walked away into an alley, court documents allege.
