It's unbelievable that the POTUS feels it is more important to raise money for his campaign than to meet with his intelligence agencies and find out what they know.

No wonder he gave himself an incomplete. He's not even sure what his assignments are. He doesn't ask questions, he doesn't know what questions to ask. He'd rather be ignorant than appear uninformed.

Here's something that really upsets me about this whole mess. I understand that sometimes people in the middle east are going to attack Americans and our Embassy. I understand that they will riot and stage planned premeditated attacks and there are times we just wont be able to stop them.

But if this is the case, how come this wasn't like Black Hawk Down? There should have been literally thousands of dead terrorists out there as our Marines fought for their lives until the ran out of ammo. Now it's being reported that the Marines who guard the embassy in Egypt are not even allowed to have live ammunition! The news is saying that every single local muslim guard the embassy had in Libya ran away in the first seconds of the attack, and our own guys aren't even allowed to have weapons?

That is correct. The Obama appointee as Ambassador to Egypt is Anne Patterson. She has held the post since Aug. 2011. Basically, 13 months. She ordered the Marines in her embassy to leave their ammunition locked in the Embassy - while they stood guard with empty weapons.

Obama and all his Liberal ilk must go.

The Obama administration's continued reports blaming a 6-month-old film for these attacks is a perfect example of our govenment spreading propoganda produced by the enemy. The question is whether this is deliberate, or whether they are really that stupid.

Clearly he has an internal poll that shows him not winning November's election.

It probably would've started something like this:

I also love how Obama and the left take credit for our exit from Iraq as if it was their doing. In fact it was mandated by an international pact negotiated and signed by.......wait for it.........Bush. This loser in the Oval Office didn't even have a choice in the matter.

You mean Rasmussen polls and historical trends?

Perhaps the reason the administration is still fixating on the video/film as the cause of these riots and attacks on our embassies across the region is because they haven't been attending the daily intelligence meetings, haven't been reading the reports and simply don't have a clue as to what is going on over there and are too embarrassed to ask questions and find out?

So that's where the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy went to.

Also interesting that there are reports that the administration was/is looking to cut $129 million from embassy security programs and features.
