Whether or not this was handled well, the fear of a Blackhawk Down scenario could easily have been on someones mind. If you havent seen that movie, you should, it is really scary, and I have a son in Afghanistan. If would sure make me think twice before committing more troops.gleeaiken, you are missing my point. If we grant your point, and while I do not agree with it I certainly understand the reluctance, that the Admin was too concerned about safety in this situation of troops, then this totally cuts the knees off of why you would start 3 days later and for two weeks saying that this was a spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video when you knew it wasn't. In fact, you are using the fact now that you knew it wasn't to justify your position not to send in troops. Deceit.
“Understandment” wow, a Bushism, I meant understatement. ;-)
