• One Headline Explains it All

    Yeah, yeah, it’s so complicated. Attacks on US Embassies, defiling the Koran movies, war on terror, blah blah blah.

    One headline explains it all:

    Six Troops Die in Weekend Afghan Insider Attacks as NATO Airstrike Kills Eight Women and Girls

    While the US mourns the deaths of four Americans in Libya, the US killed eight women and girls in Afghanistan “by accident,” and the Afghans we are supposedly freeing and assisting killed six soldiers.

    If that all doesn’t make sense, please re-read it until it does, because it explains everything about why we are losing, why we are wasting our lives and their lives and why the war of terror needs to just stop. Now.

      Here’s another:

      Romney Not the Only One to Blame the Victim:

      WSJ — Current and former officials said the security choices in Benghazi reflected efforts by Mr. Stevens to maintain a low-profile security posture and show faith in Libya’s new leaders, despite questions about their ability to rein in heavily armed bands of militants. Officials say Mr. Stevens personally advised against having Marines posted at the embassy in Tripoli, apparently to avoid a militarized U.S. presence.

      One would think Homer Simpson was in charge of protection at State:

      Homer says: “I want to share something with you: The three little sentences that will get you through life. Number 1: Cover for me. Number 2: Oh, good idea, Boss! Number 3: It was like that when I got here.”

      Naive question but does an ambassador have that kind of authority to waive having marines at an embassy? Does the WSJ cite which officials claimed Ambassador Stevens advised against having marines posted? Or is someone trying to blame the ambassador now that he is deceased and that will cover for other officials? Is it known what contracting company the ex navy seals worked at?

      The NY Times has an article today that cites the ex navy seals as mission guards and libyan security guys employed for a British security company, Blue Mountain. The article does say “At no point were the Marines or other American military personnel involved, contrary to news reports early on.”

      The article also says the rescue plane couldnt take everyone, had to leave some behind, left then returned for the rest. If that’s true, holy cow

      HC flack claims CNN broke promise to Stevens’ family that it would not “use his diary or even allude to its existence” until they gave the network permission. The network, however, didn’t stop working while waiting to hear back from the family. CNN reporters managed to confirm the details through other sources, clearing the way for Anderson Cooper to report Stevens’ fears Wednesday citing “a source familiar with Ambassador Stevens’ thinking.”
