    When we know a strike would kill civilians, we don't pull the trigger.  The problem is, even when we are very sure it won't, we can't be 100% certain?

    What we can be 100% certain about is that Chris Stevens' murderers, and their al Qaeda allies, will keep on killing innocent civilians if they are not stopped.

      We know that innocent people have been executed in the US, it is one of the main reasons why many states have stopped using capital punishment.

      We know that murderers will go on to commit other murders.

      Are you in favor of using capital punishment in the US, knowing full well that innocent people will be executed?

      and if it becomes too dangerous for US diplomats to remain in Libya, you bring them home.   Like we used to do in the old days.  

      How many times do we have to keep re-learning the same mistakes?
