Gooser, I don't think anyone is disagreeing with the fact that the administration was responsible for providing additional security for Stevens. The disagreement is over the Fox fabricated story that additional security was instructed to Stand Down.
In regards to Iraq, I was all for securing the WMD's. But, as I wrote here on RTF back in 2003, I was totally against nation building. My disagreement was in our policy of rebuilding Iraq that cost us so dearly in life and treasure. We were trying to make the Iraqis something they didn't want to be. A huge failure of the Bush/Cheney administartion and a big reason why we are in 16 TRILLION in debt today. Not to mention that we distrupted the balance of power in that region.
