If your really upset at the imperialism, why blame the troops and not the leader? Did the seals have any say so on the policy? Did they want an
embassy there? Did they want to remove a dictator in some third world hell hole no one should give a s$%t about? All the answers are no. Thew simply
heard AMERICANS crying out for help being shot and raped and without regard for their own lives made the ultimate sacrafice for another human
Only a troll coward would blame them(seals) instead of the leaders who are reponsible for ALL of the decisions made on foreign policy. Your lame and
an ignorant coward, go guzzle your dear leader maobama, when the time comes hopefully you have a chance to be abandoned as well.
The ex-Seals were contractors, i.e. mercenaries, for the CIA. They didn't have to be there; they chose to work for blood money because it pays well.
Live by the sword, die by the sword.
Good gawd, it wasn't an embassy; it wasn't even a consulate; it was a US "diplomatic mission", which is an euphemism for a CIA base. Can't you
folks get that one straight yet? The fact that you don't even know what kind of facility it was shows that you are not in command of the facts on
this issue. They were likely conducting a gun-running venture to Libyan militia and Syrian rebels. They weren't protecting Americans, and the only
interests they were protecting were banking and oil interests. The CIA has a record of assassinating foreign leaders, causing coups in democratic
countries and smuggling drugs into the US to finance their clandestine and sordid operations. So I'm not too sympathetic to CIA goons getting
whacked. They're in another country supplying weapons to one group or another. If there were foreign nationals, working for a foreign spy service,
distributing weapons to various militia/militant groups in the US, you and just about everybody else would be raising holy heck. But it's OK for the
US to do it elsewhere, and how dare anybody attack US agents doing so.
By your rhetoric you seem to be implying that Obama is not your leader, so you evidently don't respect the commander in chief of the US military and
the leader of this country. And unlike George W. Bush, he was actually elected, rather than selected president by five partisan flacks on the Supreme
Court. Yet you claim to be patriotic. Typical right-wing cognitive dissonance.
And as more is coming out, it appears that help was sent to this CIA base, but that conventional US military forces were not sent because permission
of the Libyan government was required in order to not cause a diplomatic row. The fact that the Obama administration as not been very forthcoming has
to do with the covert nature of this operation, but that doesn't seem to bother you, FOX and the rest of the right-wing nut-a-sphere.
It also didn't seem to bother you all when the Bush II administration outed Valerie Plame, a CIA case officer working on monitoring nuclear programs
in various Middle East countries, and that her outting caused the deaths of some of her operatives/agents/informers. Again, the double standard of
the right-wing is INCREDIBLE.
