Skip to comments.Cutter: No, Benghazi was not a foreign-policy failure
Posted on 10/22/2012 8:44:20 AM PDT by chessplayer
Stephanie Cutter insisted this morning on NBC that the attack on our consulate in Benghazi was not a foreign policy failure, and that the only reason people might think it was is because Republicans are politicizing a tragedy that could have happened anywhere in the world American diplomats serve. Thats true only if one considers the Benghazi attack completely without the context of the last two years of Barack Obamas foreign policy, in general dealing with the so-called Arab Spring and specifically in Libya. In truth, we created the conditions for this attack, and then ignored the risks:
Hussein’s entire handling of the Arab Spring was a foreign policy failure.
Just keep digging dingbat...
Benghazi: A Sea of Al-Qaeda Flags NRO Nov. 5, 2011
At the very least, this was a single failure to properly assess and address the security of the Consulate in Benghazi.
At the most (and this is my opinion) it was a complete failure to understand what is going on in the "Muslim world."
Jedi mind trick
BTW: I think that would be a great line for the debate tonight. “I wonder just how many Americans have to be assassinated for this White House to consider it a failure?”
Cutter is a nutter with a head full of clutter.
Follow up question to Cutter:
“So, you consider Benghazi a foreign policy success?”
“Or, are you trying to tell us that what happened in Benghzi had nothing to do with Obama’s foreign policy?”
This is turning into a Cutter-Fluke.
IOW, their deaths were no big deal?
Dear Al Qaeda:
Kill all the ambassadors you want. We'll send more.
I’m sure obama is listening to cutter for talking points in tonight’s debate.
stephanie makes katie couric look brilliant
If I may revise this a bit: I wonder just how many Americans have to be assassinated as a result of blatant disregard for their security for this White House to consider it a failure?
So, in your mind Ms. Cutter, does your statement more approximate the definition of policy success or policy failure?
So if it wasn’t a failure, Benghazi must have been a success.
In which case, suspicions we had about the Zero Administration from the beginning have been confirmed.
says a lot that they consider benghazi a success (or at least not a failure).
Romney could create a great ad with Obama’s “successes”: recovery, obamacare, benghazi, bin laden. End saying “congratulations on bin laden but we set the success bar higher on almost every other issue.”
So, by implication, it was a success.
I am thankful to God that I am not the man who brought this disgusting parasite of a woman into this world.
It appears that Stephanie is in a running word battle with Debbie Wasserman-Shultz. Who can spin and lie better so as to get an audience with Chris Mathews?
Hey, it was a non-optimal, bump in the road, spontaneous pep rally like at football game. Americans were killed? Who would have known, certainly not this crew of foreign policy geniuses. Dingbat is the wrong term entirely; she’s a LIAR, like the rest of the democrat party.
FUBO & FAD
That only makes it worse. But even if he had done everything possible to protect those four people, failing to protect them is still a failure. Manning up to such a failure is not Obama’s style.
And the only reason it is an issue is because R & R keep talking about it...
A success ?
Oops! Forgot that one, among the other piles of bovine scat being heaped upon us.
A prudent US Regime, not seriously undermined by an Islamist appeasing President would not hold their embassies in the mideast held hostage to a no-bullets policy.
Cutter would be better served being a fluffer on an LA porn movie set.
Right, STEPHEY......a dead Amb. and 3 others are just BUMPS IN THE ROAD TO YOU AND OBAMA!!!! Maybe Obama wanted Stevens dead, then it WOULDN”T be a policy failure!
Cutter is the female version of Bob Beckel......both stupid LIARS!
Oh, Ms Cutter you going to say 'It was a success??'
We don't need more success like that!!
I despise this lying white trash Cutter more than anyone in Obamaland.
Dear Stephanie: in Stephanieland, things are just magically fixed! The rest of us actually have to fix things. And when we can’t fix something, we bring in an expert. If I have an electrical problem I can’t fix, I hire an electrician and he, or she, shows up with a multi-meter and electrician’s tape. If he showed up with a pipe wrench or a circular saw, I would know he’s not an electrician. A workman is known by his tools. In Benghazi, protesters would have shown up with signs and they would have showed up during the day so that the news cameras could easily photograph them. Terrorists show up at night with mortars and RPGs and machine guns and shoot them. I could see how somebody raised in Stephanieland could be so stupid as to not know that a workman is known by his tools, but those of us in the real world knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack in about 20 minutes. Love and kisses!
Four Americans died - that’s a failure, foreign policy or not.......
