    The stupidity of the right is like feral horses on the range, unbridled.

    Howard Hunt’s wife died in Watergate.

    Problem here is the GOP is determined to damage the administration, even if it means outing our field agents and undercover allies in Libya, at which point the death toll will rise above four. Gotta admit, when Scooter Libby outed an operative in order to promote Bush’s re-election chances, she didn’t die. Of course, McCain wasn’t elected, so maybe the GOP figures killing a few agents is necessary to make it work.

    Richard Clark, a high ranking member of the intelligence community during 9/11/2001 had warned both the Clinton and Bush administrations of airplanes being considered as “missles” on US targets. Afterwards, he was called to the Bush White House. Clark then says Bush took him into a private room, got very close to him and said, “I want to know how Saddam Hussien is connected to this.” Clark began to tell him there was no evidence Saddam was involved, but before he could finish, Bush poked him in the chest and said, “I want to know how Saddam is connected to this.”
    This cartoon is implying that Obama is doing the same thing to Petraeus. The Richard Clark story shows how badly blackmail fails when a man with principles stands up to threats. Petraeus will not lie to protect the administration. He cheated on his wife, but he did not lie to investigators and there is nothing this administration can do to him at this point. He already lost his job.
    Mr. Bok’s cartoon might reflect the feelings of a lying administration, but it may also be making a false accusation against people who sincerely did the best they could in the situation that occurred.

    I don’t think the issue is not so much that it happened, but nothing was done.

    A coworker informed me the attack lasted 7 hours, that is plenty of time for the president to be notified and do do something; anything.

    Now thanks to a willing press, we already have our fall guys.

    Later in the day, after lookinside buys you breakfast, I’ll cover the tab for the burger and beer. I had an Aunt who served in covert ops from the 50’s until the 80’s and was still in ‘reserve’ until the early 90’s. Foreign service is not for wimps. thank you for your service and the excellent post.

    All focus on the few casualties, not, or hardly a word on the fact that actions saved the vast majority of staff at these sites, and got them out of the country. Yes, “foreign service” is dangerous, as drybones notes. My son’s been there recently, I helped in some situations 42 years ago.

    It is our national ignorance in all things, believing the tV fictions that make politicians able to “make hay”. For many of them, we should make that hay the torches that consume them and remove them finally, and forever, from the public arena.
