I’ve been getting a lot of ‘click’s’ and some really crazy responses to this post I did back in February.

And by crazy I mean really crazy.

Almost every ‘response’ cites that ‘only one American was killed’.

How does that diminish that fact that there were 11 Embassy’s attacked and 52 people were killed?

Ask any one who works in the Foreign Service and they will tell you that there ‘mission’ is to be an extension’ of America – our principles and values – to the peoples of other Countries.

The people that were killed, many of them worked for the Embassys or provided services or were there for assistance or maybe were just passing by.

But go ahead and look the members of their families in the eye and tell them that since they aren’t ‘Americans’, their deaths don’t count.

Go to England, France, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Germany and tell the family members of those who have died in terrorists attacks that since they weren’t ‘Americans’, they don’t matter.

We are in a World wide war on terror.

It’s not a war on terror against Americans.

It’s a war on terror.

To make less of the deaths of anyone killed in a terrorists attack because they were’t ‘Americans’, is to prevert ‘American Exceptionalism’.

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’.

    Yes and so where in the Hell is the phony Right Wing outrage when something like this happens on their watch? Why have there not been a whole bunch of congressional investigations into this and into the reasons The United States was lied into two un-necessary WMD wars? – – -(John Liming, American Liberal Times author)
