No, seriously: You are right in pointing out that a small-scale attack of this kind was not the sort of thing that intelligence people can be expected to anticipate. Further, as lamentable as the death of the one guard and the civilian woman is, there was apparently no breach of the security perimeter.
My point is the utter LACK of curiosity by the media regarding team BO and his approach to the MIDDLE EAST.
Bush was attacked every single time a car backfired in that region. And the media worked TIRELESSLY to demoralize the American public, the troops, and our allies.
The assclown gets no criticism.
