Cut off aid to this country, and China, Iran, Libya, N. Korea, and all the countries that hate US. Our stupid administration bows to these people and look at what they do. Ambassador Stevens RIP.
Here's a story of one of the guys killed...he was NOT a marine, but a contractor. Obama outsourced the protection of our embassy on the anniversary of 9/11 to contractors.
Geez, this is appalling. Makes me wonder if Obama didn't want it protected because it was almost anniversary for 9/11. It should have been easy to foresee that leaving it ungaurded in LIBYA was inviting violence. Is Obama really that stupid or does he just not care?
It would come as no surprise to me to find out that Ambassador Stevens and the other three Americans killed were killed by the very weapons Obama and Clinton gave these radicals to overthrow Qahafi without Congressional approval. Talk about blood on their hands! This man and his entire group of cronies must be run out of office. If not, we could actually see another American Revolution in the not so far off future. I am 65 years old and this is without a doubt the scariest time in American history that I have personally witnessed.
"Why isn’t the press asking Obama about this?"
I know that's a rhetorical question. But think how different the press would be reacting to this if a Republican was President and decided to continue on to Vegas for a fund-raiser right after hearing about the deaths in Libya. We would never hear the end of it.
During the entire Bush years, the media couldn't get enough about stories concerning the homeless, the poor and the unemployed. Where have those stories been for the last 4 years? Homelessness, poverty, food stamp usage, and unemployment are all higher than at any other time in my lifetime. Yet there are no stories asking why the President is so unconcerned about the poor. Now when Romney becomes President, watch how soon these sob stories return to prime time. It will be non-stop propaganda about how Republicans hate the poor and the homeless and want black people to die.
According to their website, "The role of the Fleet Antiterrorism Security Teams is to detect, deter and defend against threats, with a focus on antiterrorism. A common task of the FAST Team Companies is the reinforcement of security at US Embassies around the world."
So does this mean it was a terrorist act in Libya? I guess obama is trying to figure out how to rename it.
Quite remarkable to witness the media almost unanimously attacking Romney for stating an obvious truth - while not asking a single question of Obama and his administration. It's sickening. They are too afraid to ask even the most basic questions: why wasn't security beefed up for 9/11? Why was Stevens at this facility without even normal marine protection? How did the attackers have such accurate information (inside job)? And if you want to talk about sensitivity - how insensitive is it that the whitehouse would now host a MB ahole???
Sending in Marines now is like buying fire insurance after the house burns to the ground. They should have been there even if an "interim" facility. There is no foresight in this administration.
They cannot be deployed to a location they have not been ordered to deploy to. It seems to me that orders from the top were either withheld or never given in the first place. When they were given, it was obviously too late. I am not well-versed in military protocol, but the chain of command is certainly involved here.
Precisely my point; no orders were ever given in the first place. I know even the generals have to follow WH orders so it all goes back to Obama, who IMO has willfully put all of us both at home and abroad in danger to achieve his goal. For that, I recommend Obama 2016 and the more I see and hear the more convinced I am Dinesh is correct.
Sir it is a common perception that our Embassys are guarded by Marines but this is just not so...for thirty years now its been the Para Military contractors working for DOD that guard the embassys with a occasional Marine contingent at a few embassys here and there. XE ( Blackwater ) or Tripple canopy hire ex Special forces to do the job, how do i know? I am one of them and have guarded these embassys all over the world. We follow orders to the letter because we are not offered imunity should something go wrong and i dont know about you folks but a Muslim prison is not a good place for a American!
NO MARINES?! I know Obama's a drug addict, but has he started smoking ROCK COCAINE?! This is just flat out dereliction of duty, if not negligent homicide. The Middle East is filled with violent, insane people, all the way up to their governments, all the way down to their subjects. Allowing any US government interest to be unguarded, for any reason, is absolute and downright felony stupid, as a GOP Congressman, once said.
They're called Marine Corps Embassy Security Group (MCESG), formerly known as Marine Corps Embassy Security Battalion. But then again I can understand equating a Marine Corps Battalion (700) to an Army Regiment (1500), that's a fair comparison. ;)
After being pressured into killing bin laden because that wiki leaks freak was about to release that we knew where he was, Obama sent Seals into a trap in Afghanastthank an old helicopter.
After invading Lybia and getting Kadafi killed, he puts our ambassador in an unguarded building on 9/11.
This is the penance of a traitor.
Cowards are cowards, all over the world. Angry muslims are the worst because the perpetrate their cowardly hate in the name of religion. They will be so surprised when they wake up in hell.
So let's see. We help overthrow the regime in Libya. We help get Qadhafi iced. I'm betting that the poor Ambassador would be alive today if we didn't FIX things.
Had Obama bothered to take his briefings which he had not for over a week...he would have known there was intelligence chatter about 9/11 threats. This is why Obama did not beef up security....he is too busy campaigning to be bothered being President. This is his fault...no doubt about it!
When I saw the pictures on drudge of the late Stevens and my heart just sank with sadness. My heartfelt condolences to their families & friends. I pray and pray they're with Jesus. I do. No ONE deserved to die like that. No ONE!
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Here is a theory. In the minds of Obamy and Hilary, they felt this was a kindler gentler country now. We helped them throw out Kadafi so they must love us right. So to not offend the locals they purposely did not put Marines in charge of security. Marines are bad evil men who offend and kill. Bleechhh! We don't want them around! Yeah right. Now you know personally how evil the locals are. This is exactly why you want a bad ass United States Marine standing at the gate! Marines have but one purpose and that is to kill. They don't serve happy meals and bandage boo boos. Had they been on station this would not have happened! Period!
Too little, too late on sending our Marines to the interim consulate. Seems that it would have been appropriate to anticipate violence from muslims around the world on September 11th and to increase security as necessary prior to that date. No Westerners are safe in any muslim country....'nuff said.
Time to draft O'Bambi's daughters and send them to Libya, Burkas and all. Let them plead for peace on behalf of their daddy (or is he?)
So O'Bambi sends 50 Marines to fight off more than 1,000 terrorists? Yeah, bet he went through the voting registration to find 100% Republicans to better his re-election chances.
Embassy in a war torn nation in a war torn region. Interim or not, should have had protection. Even I can figure that out.
Those people were needlessly killed... Obama is responsible. He encouraged those savages to overthrow their government, he sent them money, he didn't protect our embassy, which is behind enemy lines.
Indeed. We are paying those scumbags for killing our own. Ambassador Stevens was assisting the new regime in Libya with their transition process after overthrowing Gaddafi. ( http://www.bayoubuzz.com/politics/us-politics/item/85340-slain-ambassador-stevens-helped-nurture-libyan-democracy ) Now we see the thanks he got.
As much as I despised Gaddafi, I would have to agree. Instead of having only one murdering thug to contend with, El Presidente has now managed to enable a whole pack of murdering thugs and bloodthirsty savages in the Muslim Brotherhood and the gift that keeps on giving, Al Qaeda. All made possible by no declaration of war under the guise of partnering with NATO. More hypocrisy from the left.
