OK the title of this thread has been gnawing at me since it first appeared. "The Libyan Embassy in Benghazi." And now it's gone some 26 pages without correction. Marvin, there is no Libyan Embassy in Benghazi...It was a US Consulate Office. It was attacked. No doubt. Americans were killled, no doubt.
What is doubtful here is the grasp of reality.... and no one but the staff on the ground at that moment can second guess what and how there should be a response. To politicize the deaths of the Ambassador and the contractors paid to provide security is shameful. JD
One cannot reason someone out of something they were not reasoned into. - Jonathan Swift
It is certain that the number of those who reason well in difficult matters is much smaller then the number of those who reason badly ........ reasoning is like running & unlike carrying, hence one Arab steed will outrun a hundred jackasses.

Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.
Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company.
