You and Diana are insisting that the embassy attacks under Bush were worse than BO's record but the truth is that NO Americans or Ambassadors died during those attacks under Bush.....the deaths were either the terrorists themselves because of adequate protection or a few by-standers that had nothing to do with the US doing it.
You want to constantly blame Bush for not 'paying attention' to warnings he may have gotten prior to 9-11 by the Clinton Administration over an eight month period of time from January's swearing in date and 9-11 itself. Clinton never reacted to the Cole bombing in 2000 and that gave the terrorists encouragement......and Clinton had OBL in his sights twice and did nothing about taking him out, and he gets your proverbial 'pass' every time, Josh.
Does BO get a pass for totally ignoring all the CIA warnings that were being given to him and HC for MONTHS about how unstable and unsecure Benghazi was, along with other areas? Did HC have the opportunity and time to pull Stevens et al out of the country like the British and the Red Cross did? Did her department not only leave them all there, but his security was CUT from 30 down to 4-6 even while they knew how dangerous it was. Not only did she cut his security, but she also personally told Stevens to go to Benghazi that day.......and we still don't know why that order was given......what was so important to HC that he had to go?
Libya had been and continues to be as unstable today as it was two years ago, warnings were being given to HC and BO long before Stevens et al were killed....but because they wanted to given the appearance to the world that 'normalcy' was phasing in, they ALLOWED these deaths to happen without any help or even a backward glance at the consequences.
Josh....you cannot have it both ways. You cannot blame Bush for having only eight months to transition into the Oval Office and be completely up to speed on appointments, cabinets, briefings, etc. and have a full REAL grasp of the terrorist situation that his own predecessor ignored. There did not seem to be a real-time urgency at that point. And yet you and others do......Clinton gets a pass after eight years of ignoring it, Bush does not after 8 months. Now here comes BO....and you are perfectly willing to give him a pass for DELIBERATELY ignoring two years of warnings and allowing the deaths of four Americans, including an American diplomat, all because of an AGENDA, Josh. This wasn't just a case of a little bit of embarrassment by pulling Stevens, et al out of there IF it even made the press (which it probably wouldn't have because the liberal press has covered for him for 5 years).....this was a case of DELIBERATELY putting their lives in jeopardy and CAUSING/ALLOWING their deaths to happen so that BO didn't lose face with his 'normalcy' spiel during a campaign.
THAT IS PATHETIC AND CRIMINAL......and you find it so acceptable that it's frightening to me.
