Marines not given ammo anyway. What good would they do?
On the golf course, just like O.J.
He could start the very next day with attending a full intel briefing.
But he didn’t.
Dick Morris said awhile ago on Greta that apparently the U.S. diplomatic community is upset about the administration’s failure to protect embassy personnel and are leaking to the news media.
All this seems really strange and out of the ordinary.
Thank God, we have some FReepers posting some hard news columns again! Thank you. I’ve had to get fast breaking news off Lucianne!
There was a story there of an interview and that Chicago blacks know Obama is going to lose and they aren’t going to turn out for him. One was reportedly acquainted with Mrs. Robinson, Michelle’s mother.
I can’t post off my cell and these foreign papers are where it’s at! We need to see what’s happening in our side pushing back.
BTW, Michelle Malkin for President. :D
Oh so now he is on first name basis with the dead diplomat..guess the others are not worth a mention.
__Details of how they died havent been made public.
And I seriously doubt that the details of the ambassadors autopsy will be revealed. Its been reported that he was sodomized before he was murdered. Its also been reported that Gaddafi(sp?) was sodomized with a knife before he was murdered. Why? To slice his innards to shreds, and to add to the excruciating pain. I truly pray that Im wrong!

He was. There was a video floating around of that part of the murder, going around third world blog sites. Some teenaged mouthbreather slid a narrow, stiletto type blade about 8 inches long and a half inch wide up Qaddaffis bum. The intention was to slit and create the pain you described. Ironically, this murdered ambassador had an active hand in creating the chaos that led to Qaddaffis overthrow. Unintended consequences to be sure.
Its also been reported that Gaddafi(sp?) was sodomized with a knife before he was murdered.
Found a relatively tame version:
These are the people the US State Department, the UN, and NATO backed. Seems like our pet vipers are not so tame as the smart Beltway people thought.
The details of the ambassadors autopsy will never be revealed
How stupid that the contingent that was just OUSTED by American air power was protecting our consulate! Clinton should be keel hauled for this lapse in judgment. All on the 11th anniversary of 9/11! Even after they where warned. unbelievable!
That’s a damned shame.
This was a suicide mission and everyone knew it.
Pray for America
what is a US ambassador doing living in a neighborhood house with almost no protection in a country EVERYBODY knows is flooded with Al Qaeda?
Hillary Clinton AND Obama knew this.. they are as responsible for what happended in Libya as a general putting his troops on the front line of a battle with no weapons
I wonder if this is going to get through to the *mushy middle* who get all their news on infotainment television?
But why was he killed? It had to be Abu Ayman ordering in a hit, or else he was killed for reasons local to Libya, and I can't think what they would be.
<wild speculation warning>
What if the Ambassador knew some "stuff" that was potentially red-hot about what happened last year, and our Dear Leader asked his Muslim Brotherhood friends for a favor?
Sort of like the SEAL Team Six hit last spring? Oh, wait -- that can't have happened that way, our Dear Leader is loyal to America, and loyal to our SEALs.

O want them both tried for TREASON.
Do consulates usually have Marine guards? I thought that was only for embassies.
Christopher Stevens Feeds the Crocodile "........Stevens was the connection between the Islamist Benghazi rebels and the Obama administrations illegal war to overthrow Gaddafi. His mission, like the true mission of the war, was secret, and the consulate, marginally fortified and devoid of Marines, reflected that secrecy. Stevens did not think that he had anything to fear from the Islamists because they were his friends.
In the Wikileaks cables, Stevens cheerfully described fighters who saw resistance against coalition forces in Iraq as an important act of jihad and local businessmen who took pride in the number of suicide bombers who had come out of the area. For years he had walked safely in their company without understanding that he was just as much of a target as a Marine in Baghdad, but without the training, the weapons or the survival skills. ................."
