Um, well I don't view myself in that light.


I know we agreed to drop it but... how do you view yourself then?

Another problem with Obama that's recently been mentioned: in Benghazi, when the embassy was attacked, there was at least one Spectre gunship and several jets within an hour of the site. The battle lasted for seven hours, and yet no order to help was given. Evidently it's being mostly ignored by most media though (possibly on purpose).

+1

Also, extra security had been requested many times and it went ignored.

Um.. that would probably involve reopening said can o' worms, so to speak. But wtf, I'll do it anyway. Anyone who wants to throw a hissy fit over it can go.. well yeah.

I like to refer to myself as a; Very laid-back liberal Jewish Pagan hippie.

You can see the reason for my hesitance.
:)

So anyway, I think I'll return the question to you Mark; How do you view yourself?

Obama gave the order to ignore requests for assistance.

I believe you, but do you have a source so that others will believe me?

Also heard about that. Evidently the general in charge decided to go against orders and help anyway because of the (obvious) moral issues, and then was discharged from the military directly following that.

edit: @MarkusDaWise: Not sure about the sources, unfortunately. I believe that it originally was leaked from people in the same room as Obama was when the order was given who thought it would be immoral not to tell people.

Seven marines got the same treatment. I find it sad myself.

But then wouldn't there be a press conference or a news article at least?

I find it hard to believe. Part of me says that there's some part of the equation that is not public knowledge. However give me a credible source (say the NYT) that supports that and I'll take a look.

I don't have a source. I got it from someone else who found it. I think NBC said something about it.

What specifically is sad? The fact that we dont have sources or the fact that Obama gave the order? That'd be funny if this made popular topics and GD got involved XD

I'm genuinely concerned about the state the US will be in in four years. I have a wife and daughter to think about.

A good deal of the media seems to support Obama, so it's not exactly surprising. I believe Fox News did something on it, but I'm not certain.

@zarkun: Also worried, though I don't have any of that to think about. Plus I'm farther north up in Canada, but the effects still affect us too.

No thanks, I'd rather not step on a social/religious land mine, so to speak. But then again, why not?

I've had and heard about a number of highly unusual experiences that have no good scientific explantation. (No, no drugs involved.) So I'll say that a believe that there could be a higher power in the universe. (call it what you will; god, allah, etc.)

"How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
-Matthew 24:19-21

Jesus speaking of the end of the world.
