I want to know why Obama didn't put on his magic cape, fly out there, raise those people from the dead, then kill all the bad people in the world! That's what McCain would have done!
You dishonor those that died.
I think you do. Politicizing this tragedy is wrong. You are just trying to score ideological points. You don't have facts, you don't have alternatives, you just have the need to smear the liberals. These tragedies happen all the time, but they only count for you if a liberal is in charge.
I think it's a disservice to Ambassador Stevens. The right acts like he was some delicate flower that should have been surrounded by swat teams at all times. He would not abide by that - he was trying to build relationships with the Libyan people. He could have easily holed up in Tripoli until this shiit-storm had passed, but instead he traveled to the most dangerous city in the world on the anniversary of 9/11 because his job was more important to him than his safety. I think the guy is a hero.
If you want to honor Ambassador Stevens, the story you should run day and night is the one about how the Libyan people found him and brought him to a local hospital. How they held up his picture and prayed for him the next day. How they stormed the Ansal al Sharia headquarters the day after the attack. The Libyan police arrested 50 militants, and forced them to disarm and disband.
A handful religious fanatics were able to storm a small consulate and kill the man. That's terrible, but you're never going to be able to stop that - you can't stop that in Colorado, let alone 7,000 miles from home. But the overwhelming support by the Libyan people - that's enormously telling about the battle to win the hearts and minds of the people throughout the region. And it's a tremendous tribute to the Ambassador, himself.
