Obama, Clinton to blame in Libya

Obama, Clinton to blame in Libya

What a tragedy, that four Americans, including our Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed at the U.S. Libyan embassy by a planned terrorist attack.

All the missed or ignored violent reports, and conditions in Libya and Benghazi by our president and secretary of State led up to that tragedy. This, at the very least, calls for President Obama to request Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s immediate resignation. If the president will not act, the Congress must remove her from office.

As head of the State Department, one of the secretary of state’s most important jobs is the protection of our embassy personnel. As shown in the case of the deaths of our people in Libya, Secretary Clinton failed miserably through incompetence, and dereliction of duty. Her mouthing pious words of sorrow, and “this violence must stop,” just does not cut it. It is obvious that she is not capable to handle this important part of her job.

There are still many unanswered questions. Why were our people ordered into harms way? Does the president not read his security reports? Was this a test to see if the newly elected Libyan government was committed to protecting our embassy property? If so, it ended badly.

The blame is very narrow. It points right to Secretary Clinton, and President Obama. At the very least, Secretary Clinton must go.

Tom Page, Boardman

It seems that these letters are becoming more and more common. Explain to me, Tom, how Obama and Clintion initiated the attacks. Secondly, you know damn well that the president is briefed on ALL security matters regardless of where he's at. Third of all, you do realize that Diplomats and Ambassadors are assigned to work there knowing the dangers...and they do have the right to pass if need be. At the very least, Tom, you best get your head from your rear and start paying attention.

Hey Tom, it seems to me if Obama sneezes you Republicans turn it into a hurricane. If you react that way to this attack that occurred IN LIBYA, how did you react to 9/11, WHICH OCCURRED HERE AND HAD FAR MORE WARNING THAT WAS IGNORED BY BUSH AND CHENEY???? What was your reaction when Ronald Reagan allowed over 200 Marines to be killed in their barracks in Lebanon??? Don't make me laugh at your "outrage" at Obama and Clinton. Your boy Romney couldn't even go to England for the Olympics without insulting the whole country, so his foreign policy chops are non-existent.

In Case you are not a student of history:

"Oct 23rd will be the 29th anniversary of the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, by Lebanese terrorists supported and directed by Iran. The attack, which killed 241 American servicemen (220 Marines, 16 Navy personnel, and 3 Army soldiers), was the deadliest single-day death toll for the Marines since the World War II battle of Iwo Jima and the deadliest for the U.S. military since the 1968 Tet offensive in Vietnam. The suicide truck bombing, along with a similar bombing that day that killed 58 French paratroopers, was perpetrated by the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah (“Party of God”), which was created, supported, and directed by Iran"

Heaven help Obama and Clinton had such a thing occurred on their watch!!!! By your logic we should all go tear down the Reagan Library and destroy all the "Bedtime for Bonzo" movies!!!

Rockyroad the technology of today is so much better then back in 1983. But when you have two people (BO& HILIARY) who are so into themselves that they don't do their own jobs correctly. And . I agree with Tom.

Pay no attention to these hacks Tom, these are the same ones who blamed Bush in 2008 for everything from 9/11 to when they ran out of toilet paper at their house.

A Democratic base in the Mahoning Valley that champions the legacy of John Kennedy's is supporting a a president who goes against everything he ever stood for.

Pay no attention Tom, these people get what they deserve when they support Obama.

Rocky doesn't realize that all of the media are liberal. I mean ABC,CBS,NBC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS,all the major newspapers like the NYT, Boston Globe, on the East coast, to the LA Times, on the West coast and everything in between, even Parade magazine. They all give Obama a pass.

On this (9-11) 4 Americans were executed, and where does Obama go - to Vegas for a fund raiser.

If Bush were in office and did that, this message board would be on fire along with all of the above media.

I might add this Rocky, in that Beirut bombing, I'm sure Pres Reagan did not go to Vegas, but probably got down, on his knees, and prayed for the brave American soldiers.

LMAO Tell these folks Hilary is not running for President. Obama will get a pass on Libya like everything else Unless you fire her and impeach your community organizer [and do not for get to fire Holder.]
And Dehpi workers ask yourself JaY Williams Car CZAR how is life? Did you get it? Want to deal with some else? VOTE R/R

Believe me if Hilary knew the white house new [Obama] She is still thinking of 08 praying for a clean record til 2016 but I want to know why the lies from the administration why the arrest of a film maker seriously WW3 could happen and be over by the time NOBAMA could make a serious decision

Tom Page, "Should have known" is not proof that Obama did anything wrong. You have to have facts to back up your assertions and there aren't any. I know the president is a powerful man but none of them are miind readers. It doesn't matter if it's Reagan and Beirut, Clinton and Kenya, Bush and 9/11 or Obama and Libya. Sometimes one of the lunatics just gets through.
