You are aware that he wasn't an ABC anchor while he was a Clinton adviser.

Whatever. We know the entire liberal media is in the tank for Obama. Including the very liberal ( and frequent Daily Kos contributor ) Joe Scarborough.

For that matter, the dirty socialists leftist Peggy Noonan

Or this Commie Pig:

Even Bill O'Reilly called Romney out, though very briefly. Playing footage of Romney criticizing the Egyptian embassy for issuing a statement that was "akin to apology."

"I'm not sure the Governor is correct on that," O'Reilly said. "The embassy was trying to head off the violence. Being conciliatory in that kind of a situation seems logical."


Fucking liberal media.

"U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo.

Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit U.S. Marine guards to carry live ammunition,” according to multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blogs spotted by Nightwatch. “She neutralized any U.S. military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.”

"these reports indicate that the Obama administration was relying on Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood-backed government to ensure American security, a move observers are questioning as violence in Cairo continues to rage."

Thank goodness for the Brits.What did Obama know and when did he know it? Too busy golfing, playing basketball, fundraising?

"According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted"

more...

Senior officials are increasingly convinced, however, that the ferocious nature of the Benghazi attack, in which rocket-propelled grenades were used, indicated it was not the result of spontaneous anger due to the video, called Innocence of Muslims. Patrick Kennedy, Under-Secretary at the State Department, said he was convinced the assault was planned due to its extensive nature and the proliferation of weapons.

There is growing belief that the attack was in revenge for the killing in a drone strike in Pakistan of Mohammed Hassan Qaed, an al-Qa'ida operative who was, as his nom-de-guerre Abu Yahya al-Libi suggests, from Libya, and timed for the anniversary of the 11 September attacks.

Eh, the British press and facts are often at odds. I would wait on something more credible.

We'll we can't wait for the U.S. media to cover any of this. They're too busy trying to blame Romney and covering Michelle's latest "healthy eating" scheme.

But, but I want to be their friend, I appease, I bow, I scrape, I won a NOBEL PEACE PRIZE for cripes sake. What's wrong with these people?????

"CAIRO (AP) — Angry demonstrations against an anti-Islam film spread to their widest extent yet around the Middle East and other Muslim countries Friday, as protesters smashed into the German Embassy in the Sudanese capital and security forces in Egypt and Yemen fired tear gas and clashed with protesters to keep them away from U.S. embassies.

One protester was killed in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli in clashes with security forces, after a crowd of protesters set fire to a KFC and an Arby's restaurant. Protesters hurled stones and glass at police in a furious melee that left 25 people wounded, 18 of them police.

Protests were held in cities from Egypt to Pakistan after weekly Friday Muslim prayers, where many clerics in their mosques sermons denounced an obscure movie produced in the United States that denigrated the Prophet Muhammad. The spread of protests comes after attacks earlier this week on the U.S. Embassies in Cairo and the Yemeni capital Sanaa and on a U.S. consulate in Libya, where the ambassador and three other Americans were killed."

I'm just about done with my cartoon showing God taking it up the ass from the pope. I can expect civilized discourse and a knowing wink/smile from you and yours, as we're way more civilized, right?

You certainly won't see cities on fire and diplomats murdered.

Wackpack post of the day.

But it's still early.

Make sure you include a bunch of gay illegal immigrants pooping on the flag. While eating arugula.

When you're done we'll a present a copy to the local VFW hall and enjoy our free speech rights.

Meanwhile, remember back in the Bush days? After the invasion of Iraq, we were greeted as liberators, peace and harmony reigned throughout the Middle East. Good times.

I'm very curious, Ned.
What do you think our (or specifically Obama's) response should have been?

It's too late. He laid the groundwork for this with his strategy of appeasement, his backing of radicals vis a vis the "Arab Spring" movement/embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood while ignoring the movement of Democracy in Iran.

Hence the title of my thread.

"It's too late" is not a reasonable, logical or appropriate response to "should." In fact, "should" suggests that the course taken has already failed, and asks what might have worked better.

Please try again. What should have Obama done? How would President Ned have handled the situation?

You don't think so? We've killed thousands of people in Iraq and for what again?
