pretty clear how you would jump if Benghazi happened under Bush
Well, as you should remember, but can't, it DID happen under Bush. I don't remember getting upset about them either because I was able to recognize that it is not the President's fault when terrorists attack targets on their own turf where Americans are present. That's why they're called "terrorists". Maybe I'm the one having a brain problem, but I can't remember the Congressional hearings about these. Rather, I'm willing to bet that Congress was unanimously condemning the attacks and concerned with trying to find the guys who did it and kill them.
You dummies keep forgetting, so I'll help you out remembering and stuff, but THIS TIME, REMEMBER!. I'm not doing this again!
On June 14, 2002, the terrorist group Al Qanoon, which was suspected to be an al Qaeda branch, sent a suicide bomber into the U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, killing 12 people and injuring 51 others. Nearly a year later, four were convicted of plotting the bombing, which blew in windows and left body parts all over the sidewalks near the embassy.

I guess now would be a good time to mention that only
2% of the people drone killed in Pakistan were Al-Qaeda leaders.
Only 50% of the people killed were even Al-Qaeda at all.
Obama has approved of killing supposed terrorists for simply being supposed terrorists and/or killing people as a favor to Pakistan so the blood is not on their hands.
one has to dig to get that on Obama ... the Obama media bots still protect him to this day.
I'm completely opposed to drone attacks anywhere. It does more harm than good. That, and it's really, really wrong.
Not you, but I'd like to reference the drone haters who, when Bush was doing Iraq (pun intended), cheered every time "insurgents" were killed yet ignored the fact that nearly NONE of them were AQ, or at least no one knew or cared whether thay were. Now, it's important for them to note stats like you put up. I agree that they are important, but they were just as important in Iraq. Know what I mean?
13 posts "Only if a pubbie were president then his outrage would be palpable", and you decide to jump on my post? Take a hike.
The truth is this: We got caught off guard by a bunck of heavily-armed nut-jobs in Libya who started a fire and the fire killed American citizens in a very dangerous place. The foreign service is a dangerous outfit to work for. You could be sent to Norway or you could be sent to the Middle East. If you are assigned to Libya, you are instantly in harm's way. Maybe we should have put US troops on the ground before we flooded the area with weapons we couldn't track. Maybe we should have done nothing and minded our own business. How far down the rabbit hole do we go?
THe same Obamaphobes who are obsessed with this story are the same ones who thought Abhu Graib was over-investigated. It's all partisan crap and second-guessing. You hate Obama. Got it. Anyone who doesn't want to get every detail about Libya is... what?
If you're looking for me....I'm out hiking...
not zactly a good day for it either
wistah...one a these days buddy......

Clinton had a hand in this, too..........if Bush has responsibilities for the state of the economy during the Obama administration, then Clinton has responsibilities regarding foreign policy during the Bush administration. There are repeated actions that Clinton could have taken and repeatedly failed to do so that would not have put Bush in the position he was in starting with 9/11/2001. To reject this notion is to reject fact.
