Hillary slept through Benghazi; Trump sent  Apache ‘copters to Baghdad 

This and the six-second response by good people with guns at that Texas church explain why Nancy Pelosi/Rachel Maddow-style progressivism is spent fuel.

In 2012, it took 13 hours for President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to send help to Americans at the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi. By the time backup arrived, it was too late — four Americans were killed, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens. With President Donald Trump it took 13 minutes.

Blaska’s Bottom LineWould you believe it? Nothing on CNN’s home page (at 1:36 P.M. 01-01-2020) about Baghdad and Trump’s response? (Yes, we would believe it.)

    An accurate Righty tweet:

    “We sent a hundred Marines to beef up security at the US embassy in Baghdad, and OUR AMBASSADOR DIDN’T EVEN HAVE TO SEND 29 CABLES BEGGING FOR THEM FIRST.” (bolds/caps mine)

    Equating the situation on the ground in Benghazi to Baghdad (hello, Green Zone) is moronic. But that’s never stopped you guys.

      AnonyBob…buddy, The Gotch hopes you find the existential wherewithal to confess that you got that monumentally indefensible imbecility from one of your TP sites.

      Because if it’s yours and yours alone?

      Sheesh; may Allah (your preferred Deity!) help you!

      Bob is correct, but not in the way he thinks. In Benghazi, hubris, incompetence and stupidity led the ambassador and his staff being hung out to dry. In Baghdad we’ve learned the hard lesson that the locals are dangerous savages.

      What’s truly interesting are the parallels between the early days in Iraq and Libya. In both we believed that,through our magical American awesomeness, that we would turn nations of goat humping savages, that had been dragged to the cusp of modernity only through the efforts of ruthless dictators, into peaceful nations enjoying pumpkins spice lattes at the Starbucks. Both turned into dumpster fires. Which shows that foreign policy stupidity is not endemic to one party. We have sucked at messing around in other nations since the days of Jefferson and Barbary pirates. We should probably take this as a clue.

    Wasn’t Obama attending one of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s motivational groups the night of the Benghazi attack with a “do not disturb order except in a national emergency” in place.

        BS fake news. All the lies and conspiracies and GOP/Fox propaganda (but I repeat myself) about Benghazi were disproven. Has Trump interrupted his golf holiday at Mar a Corrupto?

          “BS fake news.”

          “(Hopey Changey’s) command decisions gained fresh prominence when a former White House national security aide, Tommy Vietor, said in a TV interview last week that Mr. Obama was NOT IN THE WHITE HOUSE SITUATION ROOM AROUND 10 P.M. ON THE NIGHT OF THE ATTACK, when the president spoke by phone to then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.” (bolds/caps mine)

          In possibly related news, AnonyBob has accused Tommy Vietor of RACISM!

          Trump responded to an imminent threat to an embassy in a troubled hotspot. Obama/Hillary did not. He can play 9 or 18 or 36 as far as I am concerned. No ambassador is going to die on Trump’s watch. Got it, Bob?

          Fair point; Americans died because of Hopey Changey’s beauty sleep/democrat donations requirements AND Hillarity New Jowls Clinton (likely flagrante delicto with Mrs. Carlos Danger) indefensibly dropping the ball while Americans (29 Freakin Cables?????) were under siege, and then trying to blame it on a real real mean, yet pith-poor, Islamophobic youtube???

          Then sending out ineffectual foot soldiers (Susan Rice, et al) to try-n-sell it? Sheesh!

          BTW, her security credentials been pulled yet? Doesn’t matter…

          The Donald’s actions; not so much.

          “Comparing them is…maybe moronic was a bit harsh, let’s just say misleading and partisan revisionism.”

          You’ve yet to divulge who planted that tidbit in yer brainpan; don’t take all of the blame yourself…

    Once again we see the Left accusing President Trump of their own sins.
    This time the president was not AWOL. Neither Barack nor Hillary could be bothered to take Amb. Chris Stevens’ calls. cables or emails. Remember the apologies? Me either. Because an election was pending. After the Benghazi murders, the entire foreign service swamp THEN swung into action to lie and claim it was because of a Youtube video that had 300 views. The CIA lied, the State Dept. lied, Hillary, Barack and Slow Joe Biden all cried crocodile tears over the dead at Dover AFB and vowed vengeance …….. on the YouTuber. On Sept 12, 24 hours after the attack began the Libyan Amb. was on NPR saying that’of course it was a large, well organized attack on the anniversary of 9/11. Barack et al. kept lying.
    Because what difference could it possibly make……. after Barack was re elected?
    Hillary’s emails, her home brew server and her deleted 30,000 subpoena’d emails, her 22 confirmed felonies the FBI forgave?
    Karma.

    Yeah, Trump should do like Hillary “We came, we saw, he died” in Libya, thereby making it into a s*&t hole to be a conduit for Africa and the middle east to go to Europe. Maybe Trump should do as Obama and Biden did in turning over Iraq and and billions of dollars in weaponry to a JV squad called ISIS.
    The Washington Party has so mortgaged our security and our prestige for 20 years Trump only has to do the opposite of his two predecessors to succeed in foreign policy.
    The only ones afraid of President Trump are his and our enemies, foreign and domestic.
