Today’s attack marked the final US embassy attack under the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s reign at the State Department.
Her last day as Secretary of State is today.

** Here’s a look back at the US embassy attacks under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:

The Islamists chucked rocks and bricks at the embassy guards and torched a US Flag.

Islamic radicals chanting “Death to America!” stormed the US Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen in September.
They stormed the building and torched vehicles.

in November 2012 the Talban carried out a massive attack near the US Embassy in Kabul. An RPG fired at house used by British diplomats.

In Benghazi, Libya – Our consulate was destroyed and our ambassador murdered.
And, now we know the al-Qaeda flag was seen at the consulate during the terrorist strike on the embassy.
And it was seen several times over Benghazi government buildings during the year.

Despite these numerous attacks, the Obama Administration insists that Al-Qaeda is on the run.

    I believe Bengahzi was not a consulate. It was a CIA facility running weapons out of Libya
    through Turkey to Syria.

    Where there is a Clinton there is death, destruction and deceit. And those are her better qualities.

  • Granny

    And despite it all, the United States Senate voted to table the Bill that would have prohibited the sale of F16s to Egypt!

  • Finncrisp

    Al Queda is on the run – to the next American target! Thanks to leading from behind and bowing to our enemies.

    And here I thought that electing the “Won” was supposed to appease the Muslim community and bring us world peace …. silly me.

  • Bob

    He didn’t say “al-queda was on the run” he said that “Al Roker has the runs.”

  • jharp

    Clearly Obama’s fault. And Hillary’s too.

    Why they wouldn’t be able to stop a suicide bomber halfway across the world from blowing himself up shows a clear incompetence.

    Time to impeach.

    @ #13 — thanks. ROTFLMFAO

    It’s because Moochelle tells them to eat healthy but then has something fattening.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    Good thing we have John Kerry to fix this.

    He served in Vietnam, you know.

  • Maudie N Mandeville

    Sad, but it doesn’t make any difference to liberals. But don’t take away their free condoms and birth control pills!

  • Justin Case

    One more than the last guy. I count 7 attacks on embassies and 31 dead from 2002 to 2008. Never mind the Pentagon and World Trade Tower incident.

  • stuart

    Al-Qaeda is on the run…. right toward us.
    I think it’s called a charge, or an offensive or whatever the politically correct term is these days.
