“How could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save?”

–Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her remarks on the killing of U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. She said the “confounding” attacks “should shock the conscience of people of all faiths.”

Al Quedia of Libya probably had a hand in the firing of missiles. I say pull out of the entire Middle East. Our policies of supporting Israel probably haven't helped that much either. Besides we need to start putting more money into the Pacific Rim to hold China in place,

The lesson that the Obama

administration should learn from the embassy attacks in Benghazi, Cairo, Tehran

and other places is that the Arab Spring has not created friendly, pro-American

regimes but totally hostile rulers and  people.

Pro-American Ben Ali, Mubarak, Gadaffi and Saleh are no more in power and

gradually the Muslim Brotherhood dominated Middle East will emerge. The

phrase “Arab Spring” is a misnomer. The political upheavals that swept Tunisia,

Egypt, Libya, and Yemen were concurrent yet different phenomena, and it’s

premature to assume that any of them, let alone all of them, will bring their

respective countries out of the long Arab winter of authoritarian rule. In

these circumstances, it is foolish to give massive aid to these countries.

Quite recently several billions of dollars were given as loan to Egypt by

Obama. We have to bear in mind that any aid given to these countries is an aid

to future enemies. The aid amount can be used to meet the internal expenses of

America.

 "How could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save?”You are as dumb and naive as your boss Barry.  Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

"How could this happen in a country we helped liberate in a city we helped save?”

Not that we needed any more evidence, but we have one of the most idiotic, utopian, leftist/feminist dimwits in history acting as Secretary of State. 

"How could this happen"?  Hahahahahahahahahaha!  Is Clinton the only idiot on earth who doesn't know how this could happen?

"In a country we helped liberate"?  Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!

"In a city we helped save [for muslim terrorists]"!!!

FIVE MORE MONTHS!  FIVE MORE MONTHS!!  FIVE MORE MONTHS!!!

You also don't come across as real bright.  Maybe you need to get together with the one above and between you equal the sensitivity of a 3 year old. What is it with these right-wing nuts that everything is a leftist  or feminist or whatever.  Hillary is actually doing a great job in a position that Romney has shown that he has zero capability in and again proves that Mittens should go back to firing people and screwing up lives here and in China with Bain.

How is it that on days of national tragedy are the days where the idiots seem to be taking super-concentrated idiocy?

We should never confuse gratitude with extremism. As we see daily extremists might agree with you in one or two things but ultimately their rational is always towards extremisms.

Religious zealots aren't rational. They're a disgrace to persons of faith and bring harm and shame to the ones that actually try to follow the teachings of their religions. Hate breeds hate and there are far too many haters out there.

Not that you're incorrect but what happened in Benghazi wasn't the doing of religious zealots. Al Qaeda are religious zealots. We what have in Libya is a group of young men in a fragile part of the world, who are still reeling from the revolution a year prior, and who happen to be Muslim. "Stoking flames" is a phrase I've heard a lot in the past few hours. We'd do well to remember the flames must first exist to be stoked.

Good point. Using religion as an excuse happens everywhere.

Indeed, it's a terribly confounding thing. Whatever political capital Libya gained in the world last year...*poof*
