Three days warning and nothing was done! This is beyond gross incompetence. Someone needs to be held accountable.

Someone needs to be held accountable.

Someone was. Unfortunately, three innocents were killed too.

I think its important that CNN is reporting this, since they typically won’t report anything negative about this administration.

“Accountable” ?? That's a quaint idea. There is no accountability. The Pretorian Guard (media) will ensure it.

Now, let's get back to those “disgraceful” comments by Romney.

>> Someone needs to be held accountable.

The obamao campaign picks Mitt Romney to be the one, with George Bush as a backup.

This is a DNC op.

The press has bumped Obama a great deal through it.

Someone was held accountable, and his name is Mitt Romney for daring to speak of the incompetence of our failed leader.

Someone has: The man who made the goofy little movie. Remember, the regime has held the movie solely responsible for the wave of violence against Americans around the world.

The Romney bashing is a diversion from the failure of this Administration’s Middle East policy. Obama policies are destabilizing the Middle East, they’re not helping.

“CNN has resources on the ground in most of the world.”

I will say one thing for them, whenever there is a breaking event somewhere in the world they do have good coverage right away. It is later when the libtard talking heads there put themselves and their spin into the story that I change the channel.

Didn’t Romney make that ‘movie’ that caused all the trouble? And what is CNN up to reporting all of this? Didn’t they listen to Dr. Rice today? Have they misplaced their DNC talking points?

Thanks WashingtonSource.
...he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
He was wrong -- there was no security to deteriorate.

Allahu Akbar, these are my heroes, I want to bring them to Az, McCain? The one that was grinning from ear to ear, walking where a man had been beheaded? Yes, he should know...

War gives me a *****, McCain...

God bless the family of our Ambassador, but I can’t help wondering if he wasn’t just a bit naive.

There were multiple warnings on the eve of 9-11, the day after the head of Al-Qaeda calls for violence against US interests in the name of AQ’s assassinated number two, Abu Yahya Al-Libi, who was from Benghazi, Libya, a known hotbed of AQ/Mahgreb activity. But he goes, under little security, and much of that provided by Libyans, to Benghazi.

Why do we have Libyan security personnel? God bless the Libyans that are with us, but is is very difficult to tell the difference. Witness the very many “green on blue” attacks in Afghanistan and Iraq. They keep attacking us that way because we are very vulnerable.
