As the midterms elections draw nigh, the Republican strategy is to capitalize off the deaths of four brave Americans. The outcry Benghazi has, as of late, been saturated in the main stream media. If Republicans have to use Benghazi as a battle cry, they prove they believe their base is stupid, because stupid is as stupid spouts Benghazi. There is a concerted effort to push the tragedy into a scandal for political points.
A spin campaign out of control, indicating the 'family values' lack of family values.
"These 13 attacks do not even take into account the many fatal attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq during a war that was loudly supported by Graham and his cohorts. All but three of these attacks took place in the Middle East.
1). Calcutta, India; January 22, 2002 – Five killed at the U.S. Consulate.
2).Karachi, Pakistan; June 14, 2002 – 12 killed, 51 injured at U.S. Consulate.
3).Islamabad, Pakistan; February 28, 2003 – Two killed at the U.S. Embassy.
4).Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; May 12, 2003 – 36 killed, nine of them Americans, at the U.S. diplomatic compound.
5).Tashkent, Uzbekistan; July 30, 2004 – Two killed at the U.S. Embassy.
6).Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; December 6, 2004 – Nine killed at the U.S. Consulate.
7).Karachi, Pakistan; March 2, 2006 – Four killed, including U.S. diplomat David Foy, at the 8).U.S. Consulate. (Note that this is the second fatal attack on the Consulate in 4 years. Where was the extra security? Oh, right. There was none. Mr. Foy was directly targeted in this attack but we never heard a peep from anyone on the right about it.)
9).Damascus, Syria; September 12, 2006 – Four killed, 13 wounded at U.S. Embassy.
10).Athens, Greece; January 12, 2007 – Thankfully empty U.S. Embassy targeted with an anti-tank grenade (which landed in the Ambassador’s office).
11).Sana’a, Yemen; March 18, 2008 – 13 schoolchildren are injured when a mortar misses the U.S. Embassy and hits a nearby school. (Brown children are just collateral damage to the right).
12).Istanbul, Turkey; July 9, 2008 – Six killed at the U.S. Consulate.
13). Sana’a, Yemen; September 17, 2008 – Sixteen killed (including a newlywed couple) at the U.S. Embassy. The second attack in 7 months."
At what point, did Lyndsy Graham and other right wingers speak out against those attacks?
What committee was setup to target the White House? At what point did Conservatives press the White House for "answers?" Oh, right they never did press anyone for answers. However, when the black guy is in office, everything he does is wrong.
The hypocrisy runs beyond all rationale, it goes against the grain of sanity. Reoublicans actually believe they are fighting for a righteous cause, when systematically they prove themselves to be destitute of logic and their blood stained eyes will one day see themselves for who they truly are, liars.
