    Sure, let's kill innocent civilians, enrage potential allies, and conduct "clean" wars.

    Nothing wrong with that.
    Nothing at all.

    I don't know what that 64 number means -- Mother Jones didn't provide their definition of "Attacks on diplomatic targets"

    I think the actual number of attacks on US embassies during the Bush administration was 12.  The number of ambassadors killed because the President refused to send in security: 0.
    The number of Americans arrested to cover the Predient's backside for letting an Ambassador get killed when the administration refused a request for additional security: 0.

    •  Innocent civilians? (1+ / 0-)

      Do you know how many "innocent civilians" were killed maimed and tortured in Iraq?
      There have been less than 700 civilians killed by drone strikes since 2009, and I'm not sure why you're worried about the military government of Pakistan being enraged by our actions- they were the ones who were sheltering Bin Laden.
      By the way, there was no refusal to send in security by the Obama adminstration. The closest millitary not in Benghazi was 600 miles away in Tripoli, they arrived after the attacks were over.
      Unless you're suggesting that maybe Obama should have ordered in a missle strike from an F-16 and kill hundreds of innocent civilians who actually support the US and Obama? Surely not, after your outrage about the "innocent civilians" killed in drone strikes?

      •  Tons, but...by whom? (0+ / 0-)

        And that's without going into the 100s of thousands killed by their own leaders prior to the war.

        But you're right...700 lives, nothing to get worked up over.
        It's not like they're people or anything.
