The Alledged Lie Of Barrack Obama

The former Kingdom of Libya's flag is being us...

I keep hearing of this alleged lie ; supposedly told by the President; concerning this trifling nonsense about Libya which the republicans keep harping about as if The President has no latitude concerning what intelligence information he releases.

Four Americans were killed and the republicans are jumping mad about it. When thousands of Americans were being killed in Iraq after our groundless invasion of that country; you weren’t complaining. Why?

Because you know and I know that in a volunteer military; every man knows that he is undertaking an assignment that could end in his death. He is a volunteer. A soldier; not a mailman. Soldiers die. It’s what they are recruited for.

The same is true of the diplomatic service. These people go to all manner of nations; from violent nations in the throes of revolution; to nations that are our allies in the world situation. They know or should that when they take on such assignments; there is a chance they will be killed. Many of our diplomats; Chris Stevens among them refused heavy security. He felt it would distance him from the Libyan people he was attempting to help and work with. He was right. It would have distanced him and he knew what you folks seem to forget. He knew he had a dangerous job. He volunteered for it. He accepted the risk as did all of those with him. In addition to that, Chris Stevens was known for his resistance to any but the most necessary and inconspicuous security personnel; claiming that it undermined his relationships with the locals he dealt with in the course of his duties.

Embassies are typically equipped with a Marine corp detail. Their job is to protect the embassy staff; not to provide personal protection for the ambassador. Private security is used for that purpose generally to lessen the visible military presence.

When we launch a military action; we send “X” number of troops. They may be sufficient for the task but they may not. We use the best judgement as to the required personnel. When we are wrong; as we have often been; soldiers die. They don’t bitch; they don’t whine. They just die in the attempt; sometimes more than a few. Chris Stevens did his job. He did it well and he did it on his own terms for the most part. He is to be mourned. He is to be honored for his work and dedication. In the end though; he knew the job was dangerous when he took it.

    You’re missing the point. It isn’t that he has to disclose every little detail, the point is he lied about the details he released and blamed his response on someone else that had nothing to do with what actually happened and then has stonewalled every question that has been asked including apparently why he ordered the military to stand down instead of attempting to rescue their comrades and denied the embassy’s repeated request for additional security over a period of months. Why? Why did he publicly state on numerous occasions that Al Queda was on the run and no longer a threat when evidence shows that he was informed that that was not true. the truth is he dropped the ball on this one and he is now trying to cover it up, which always makes things worse. Being at risk is not the point, it’s that he left these guys in harms way and unprotected and did nothing to prevent their murder as he watched events unfold , in real time and did NOTHING except apparently go to bed and fly out on a fundraiser the next morning while all this was going down. I find that reprehensible as an American and wonder why you don’t no matter who it is. Once again, where is your consistency. This sucks!

    please don’t lay the Bush in Iraq crap at my feet. I would have voted to kill every single Muslim on the face of the planet September 12 if I had been in charge. i personally think Bush was too damn nice!
