I didn't think it was possible, but the Libya scandal just got worse.

From the article:






I didnít think it was possible, but the Libya scandal just got worse. When you watch Jake Tapperís excellent report on ABC News, youíll see that our State Department not only withdrew necessary American security, it not only ignored its diplomatsí pleas for increased protection, it not only ignored repeated and escalating attacks in Benghazi (side question: Why are we only just now hearing about these attacks and bombings?), it also apparently relied on an unpaid local militia of grocers and shopkeepers as its security force. Any person with any experience in the Middle East knows this is beyond incompetence ó itís reckless disregard for our citizensí lives.

Rather, "we relied on a naive President to protect our Ambassdor".

Send a Green Star to John Gregoire

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to John because you have done so within the last week.

John, Obama does not get tired in making me wondering why did people elected him in the first place!

Thanks, I don't like when mistakes are made, but don't really get mad at the person, unless that is, they learn nothing and will continue to make the same mistakes.

John, when the person makes the same things number of times deliberately, I don't think these as his mistakes. I think of these as his intentional actions.
