#1 A decision to send a gay ambassador to Libya, and to cancel Marines from the protection duty. THAT is a decision that will haunt Hillary Clinton for the rest of her life.

#2 It may haunt her career, but she could care less.

#4 We allowed a contractor to hire local nationals as security guards, but said they can't have bullets. This was all part of the point of not having a high profile in Libya."
This has been a common practice in many locations overseas for years.

#5 Libya is free. They need no marines there now. It is for the muslims to run now. There should be no infidels there now Gadafi dead. It is very sorry that the man died, but he should not be there.

#6 It ain't free AlHaan, but it is a damn cheap little hell hole.

Donks don't have individual shame/guilt. That's a card they only play on Trunks and the American public [see White Guilt]. It's all about power.

Civilized countries exchange ambassadors, Mr. AlHaan, no matter their religion, and make very certain they are protected from harm.
If you wish there to be no infidels in the Ummah, you declare the Land of Submission to be uncivilized. Granted, there are many on both sides of the border who already believe that of you, but I am aastounded that you demand to prove it.

#9 Hillary feel remorse? Slick Willy Clinton had opportunities to kill bin Laden on multiple occasions before 911. I don't think either one of them have any remorse. That is just for show for the little people who vote.

#10 Islam. The black flag of murder, rape, pedophilia and thieves. The false prophet and his beast will have a place in the bottomless pit of hell for eternity.
That is a 2000 year old promise.

#11 Sorry, Raider & Alaska Paul. Gotta agree with JohnQC & Procopius2k. Clinton won't blame herself, and the media will never scrutinize her either. Remember her kissing Suha Arafat? Clinton is still depicted as "pro-Israel" and "hawkish."
#12 Clinton, remorse, self-blame, accept responsibility for a bad call....? Never happen. Perfect leadership void and yet another example of amateurs attempting to teach amateurs, how to become amateurs.

#13 Not very long ago, people were held accountable for bad decisions.
However, things have gotten so rotten in America during the past 4 years that people who make decisions that result in the murder of our finest citizens (Bryan Terry - border patrol killed by cartels armed by this administration, the two former Seals at Bengazi killed by the Muslim Brotherhood armed by this administration) get away with NO repercussions what so ever.
The entire Obama administration is against us to the point of arming our worst enemies.
When are we going to be against them as completely and totally as they are against the best and finest of America?

#14 I have but one question. If our Champ is re-elected in November, will his potential failings in a second term be blamed on the mess left in the previous four years ?

#15 Unfortunately the moral and ethical dissolution of the current regime didn't start here.
Let's just recall, for a moment, the "gestapo" capturing a recalcitrant 5 year old to "return" him to the loving arms of the Castro dictatorship.
Let's also recall the 89 deaths in Waco accompanied by gov't tanks and the deaths (murders) at Ruby Ridge by gov't snipers.
These folks have no shame and no concience just a disdain for the people and a lust for power.

Naw, the U.S. MSM will re-define this debacle into success despite it being a "'man-made disaster." Our MSM is an absolute disgrace and serve no useful function to our society.

#17 But that's a funny thought Besoeker. :-)

#18 "serve no useful function to our society"
I dunno, John.
They definitely serve as a bad example. It's just that we don't need so many bad examples.

#19 Yeah it didn't start with Obama and it didn't bypass George W. Bush's administration either. Nobody was ever held accountable for the Sept 11 failures or for the initial failures in Iraq that left CIA and state fighting. W never was the attack dog he was portrayed as by his enemy and he never cut loose the attack dogs who waited patiently.
