Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

‘Under Obama there have been 2 embassy attacks and 4 deaths. Under Bush there were 11 embassy attacks and 52 deaths’

embassy attcks

Can YOU name the 11 Embassys attacked under President Little Bush?

Wonder why?

The Democrats didn’t politicize them.

‘While there have been two embassy attacks and four deaths during the four-plus years of the Obama administration, this represents a significant slowdown in such violence’.

‘During the eight years of the Bush administration there were eleven such attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates, with 52 deaths. So why are these attacks suddenly front and center in the headlines, even as they become more rare’?

‘Benghazi was the first embassy attack to be politicized, as republicans in congress attempted to turn the attack into a scandal or controversy in an effort to hinder Obama’s reelection bid, and more recently to hamper any future presidential ambitions of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’.

‘None of the eleven attacks during the Bush adminstration were politicized by democrats in congress’.

  1. Democrats arent perfect, but most Republicans are grotesque and evil.

  2. And that doesn’t even begin to address 911 and the memo about Bin Ladin determined to strike within US using airplanes and the thousands dead inside the US. Total BS.

    • No but thank you for supporting what I posted.

      ‘Protests’ are not ‘attacks’.

      An ‘attack’ is when armed personnel actually attack an Embassy. You know, harm people. Kill people.

      Not when a bunch of angry people armed with bricks and matches protest at or even inside an Embassy.

      I suggest that you actually read the links to the stories of the link you provided.

      Or stay uninformed.

      It looks good on you.

  3. Reblogged this on American Liberal Times and commented:
    I am sure there are some right wing radical extremist Obama-Hating, Government-Hating Insurrectionists and would-be Revolutionaires who are going to scratch their personal areas in rage over me re-blogging this one from “The Last Of The Milleniums,” but the exposition of truth that this article represents and the kick in the rear end to some of the obstructionist intransigents from Rightie-Tightie Land that it could be is too much of a temptation for me to pass by so – - – here it is!

    • Again Thank You John for this and the many other reblogs.
      I did get a reply from, lets see, how did you describe them – ‘some right wing radical extremist Obama-Hating, Government-Hating Insurrectionists and would-be Revolutionaires’
      Some one relying on the Gateway Pundit for their knowledge would fit right into that description.
      Now if we could just get them to actually read the whole story instead of just the headlines even from the blogs they read…..

      • Seeing that many of this genre fall within the bounds of a condition that I sometimes describe as “The least educated and most easily led among our species” is it inconceivable that the art of “Reading” may fall somewhere below an acceptable threshold to permit of rational conceptualization for many of them – - and even if “Reading” were at a reasonable skill level, do you imagine there may be legitimate concerns a retention challenge or a cognitive misfire in the area of critical thinking? Given the propensity of many of that psuedo-ultra-conservatist ideological anomoly to fantasy and myth-interpretive literary creativity is there room to suspect that reality is simply beyond their purview?

      • If they just suspended reality, one could at least then mount an argument.
        A mutual reality still exists.
        But when they create an entire reality…..it’s becomes impossible to have an intelligent conversation.
        So debunk.
        Present the truth that is in our reality and then counter to have them show their ‘proof’.
        In truth it’s just fun to mess with them. (GRINS!)

  4. - – - and to watch them slowly dissolve away like a witch with a bucket of water poured over the head. . . they do seem to be like disappearing mists these days . . .much to the good of the Republic.

    This is nonsense.
    Of all these deaths liberals keep pointing out, exactly how many were American citizens?
    One?
    The rest were NOT Americans.
    Obama is a security nightmare.

    • So our Nation’s security overseas only counts if Americans are killed?
      Correct?
      It doesn’t matter if terrorists are trying to car bomb or IED or mortar attack our Embassy’s.
      Our Embassy’s are considered American soil.
      So it’s an attack on America.
      And that’s not important to you?
      If the 4 dead in Benghazi make President Obama a ‘nightmare’ then what to the 241 AMERICAN servicemen killed in Beruit under President Reagan make him?
      Or how about the almost 5,000 AMERICAN service men and women killed under President G.W. Bush looking for WMD that didn’t exist?
      Republicans are making the deaths of 4 Americans a political joke.

  8. Pingback: Liberals Use Grossly Misleading Graphic And List To Compare Benghazi To Other Embassy Attacks Under Bush

    • Again to you and most other Republicans, if no Americans were killed and the attackers didn’t enter any secured compound, it isn’t an act of terror.

      Right?

      Because that’s what this latest version of ‘coverup’ is about.

      The White House’s role in taking ‘terrorism’ out of the talking points UN Ambassador Susan Rice used.

      As to each attack, again YOU won’t call it an act of terror because no Americans were killed even though an American interest was attacked in each event.

      A terror attack is a terror attack is a terror attack.

      • Mike on said:

        You’re right. Lot’s of attacks. Just one thing you forget to mention. In all of these well publisized attacks, NO ONE tried to cover it up. Or deny it was a terrorist act as the Obama admin tried to initially do. Now, oh yeah, it was probably terrorist, not due to some dumb assed home made movie after all. But, as Hillary would say “What difference does it make?”

      • LOL!!!!!
        Seriously?!?!
        Cover up?!?!

        So when president Obama stood in the Rose Garden the day after the attack and called it an ‘act of terror’…..he was covering up the fact that it was an act of terror according to you?

        Do they let you have sharp objects to play with?

  9. There were no coverups just before an election, no denial for security under Bush… As a matter of fact the numbers of deaths reported on your ridiculous list are misleading at best, idiotic and propaganda at worst. Some were security personnel (Which were requested in Benghazi but denied) repelling attacks. Others were bystanders killed by explosions. When Americans are under attack and help within range is denied, our countrymen are killed while our leaders watch, not helpless but unwilling to help, and we are lied to about it the ability of our leadership to lead MUST be questioned. Should be removed from office…

    • Yes. President Bush DID NOT LIE about ‘weapons of mass destruction’ that led us into invading Iraq and the death of almost 5,000 Americans.

      And of course there was no ‘denial’ of security and that’s why we had to have a ‘surge’ to attempt to stop the insurgents.

      But 2 points.

      #1 – What exactly is being ‘covered up’?

      And #2 – Ask people that work in the Foreign Service if the attack on one of our Embassys is an act of terror and if they count onlythe Americans that are killed.
      Do you even know what an Embassy or Mission is for?
      You become an extension of America , a friend, a neighbor to the people where you work and live.
      Not ONE SINGLE PERSON who works in Foreign Service thinks that in a act of terror, if an American isn’t killed then it’s not important.

    We didn’t have all this good and evil talk before Obama took the presidency. Our country is being led down a path into darkness not light. He is turning us against each other so we don’t pay attention to what he, and the criminals he has surrounded himself with,are doing . I have been a Christian my entire life and have tried to live by Gods word, love one another. I feel the very words I am writing are being watched by this new regime. You are my brother or sister regardless of skin, sex or who you choose to love. I testify with all my heart that I am afraid for my children and my fellow Americans. The country we live in is free because of the blood that is shed to keep it from those who would dictate how we should live our lives. Hitler had the world convinced he was a good guy until it was too late. Don’t listen to the lies that lead to hate, love one another. Bush isn’t leading our country, a man whose very legitimacy is in question is. It is time to seek truth not be content with what is being spoon fed to you between Dancing With the Stars and American Idol. Be an American and stand for freedom. I stand and salute our flag and nation, does Obama?

  11. Matt Pistritto on said:

    Of the exaggerated list you write to again support the propaganda campaign for this sorry excuse for a president there was killing of only 1 American in any of the incidents you site. The major story here is that President George W Bush didn’t lie to the American people, produce a false story to deliberately mislead the naive public in an effort to put a lid on his actions in order to become reelected. This compares more, it you must compare this man’s lies and scandals to a Republican president to Nixon. However the big difference there was that the media was out to get the truth in that case, the president stepped down in disgrace and no One was killed in his lies. That being said what should happen to this liar who currently resides and disgraces the White House?? It’s amazing how this liar has the major media in his back pocket as if they are on his salary. The American people have never been so naive as they have been since 2008 believing a thing this “low life Chicago politician” says.

    • No of course President Bush didn’t LIE about the weapons of mass destruction that Sadam had and why we had to invade Iraq.
      How sad of a human being you are to say that since only 1 America was killed, the terror attacks either weren’t terror or not important.
      The 50+ people killed, some who worked for the Embassys, aren’t important.
      Only being an American is important.
      Is that your version of American exceptionalism?

  12. Matt Pistritto on said:

    Will you prints reply or will that be “modified” and covered also lime everything else the media does regarding this sorry excuse for a president?

  13. Carol on said:

    Sorry Carol but that site thinks that the death of people who aren’t Americans isn’t important.
    And THAT goes against EVERYTHING that anyone and everyone in the Foreign Service believes in and works and even gives their lives for.

  14. Its interesting that most of those were during the peak of the war against terrorism and the only president who really wanted to stop terrorist attacks happening on our soil. Remember, Clinton pretty much sat on his hands and closed his eyes when we were attacked the first time in the 90′s. I guess Al Qaeda figured we would do the same after the 911 attacks.

    • I would question the ‘peak on the war on terrorism’.
      The dynamics are changing. We won’t be invading other Countries as no one Country is the center for terrorism. By our greatly increased use of drones, we haven’t seen the ‘peak’ yet.
      The point of the post was that Republicans have and are still centering on Benghazi as a ‘scandal’.
      Yet not a single Democrat raised that as a issue during the Bush years.
      Our embassy’s being attacked should not and never was a ‘scandal’.
      As Americans we used to stand together when incidents like this occured.
      Now….Republicans view an attack on Americans as a’scandal’.
      Republican ideology is slowly destroying our Country.
