I disagree with you, but you have the right to believe anything you want.

Oh please, not once did I ever hear a Republican bash or degrade Bush for the thousands of American lives lost in Iraq and on 9/11 but as soon as a few American men lost their lives in Benghazi you have been bashing Obama for it nonstop but continue to ignore what happened under Bush as if it never happened.

Aramer1919, You can keep pretending if you want to. I am only speaking from experience and I always hear Republicans talking about how tragic Benghazi was but bring up Iraq and you get silence.

What about the Marines that died under Reagan in Libya and not one word was said?

He actually had 13. But including 9/11 that would make 14. :) fox news didn't care, republicans didn't care and if you're too stupid to ignore facts, then bless your ignorant and stupid heart.

"January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed. June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al Qaeda attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51. October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of "Bali Bombings." No fatalities. February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.

Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers.

Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed. September 17, 2008. Sana'a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months."

And yes, Ronald Reagan has "Benghazi". I'm just pointing out the way that everybody has their panties in a bunch due to Obama's one but none of Bush's or Reagan's or any other president's. Ronald Reagan committed high treason and none of you republicans said jack about impeaching him but Clinton gets his ding-dong licked, by a secretary and says he didn't, is much worse than high treason. Great job.

Discomfiting you are exactly right
discomfiting says2014-04-15T18:32:00.4279295-05:00
Brendan I know there must've been more but I couldn't find them all I thought 13 was enough compared to the single one Obama had that I found

The correct answer is ZERO. On or about June 3, 2014 , discomfiting has refused to debate me on this issue. His assertion of 13 Benghazis under Bush is TOTALLY FALSE. You can look it up yourself through various sources. I NEVER voted for Bush, and I did support Obama, However I feel that the truth must outweigh any political agenda. Both my father and grandfather worked for the Department of State, so this is personal to me as well. This is not Bush vs Obama, nor is it Repubs vs Dems. It is simply TRUTH vs LIES.
