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:

Islamist protesters attacked the US Embassy in Jakarta in September screaming “F**k America!”
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.

    …and this douche-lick wants to be your next president? Do you people know that she is still pushing the evil video angle. That’s how dumb these progressives think you are!

    Weakness attracts aggression. Nothing new here.

  • sha-doo-doo

    And airhead now shows why it can never be taken seriously.

  • CanisDirus

    The real question is actually a medical one.

    Can Hillary endure another concussion?

    To 18Delta:

    Your comments are accurate and let me expand on them. Both the CIA and FBI were actively tracking Al-Queda leads in the Us prior to 9/11, however they were prevented from sharing/communicating intel due to a provision set up by the Assist. Attorney General at the time, Jamie Gorrellic. It is thought that this provision, better known as “the wall”, was put in place to neutralize the effects of Pres. Clinton’s philandering. Janet Reno couldn’t be as bold as Eric Holder is today at carrying the boss’s water, so her assistant had to do it. How was she rewarded? She, having no background in finance, was given an executive position at Fannie/Freddie, working under Frank Raines during the sub-prime bubble. Her first bonus exceeded $21MM, while the economy imploded.

    This bombing and others like it are the bitter fruit of weakness and appeasement.

    Unfortunately for us, the people currently running the show in Washington seem to have quite a taste for it.

    Lincoln’s stupid shrew seems to think that by stating Kerry “served in Viet Nam” was meant as a positive. It is not. Those of us who are all too familiar with his less than stellar 4 month tour in Nam add that phrase because Kerry likes to remind people he served in Viet Nam. So, when we speak of him, we add that phrase. It is also likely he will probably be worse than Shrilliary. At least he won’t be screeching at us like she does, I hope.

    #40 your blatant over-simplification, revisionist history, and ignoring of widely recorded actions within the Bush Administration are the hallmark of Right Wing ignorance. Keep repeating the same falsehoods if it helps you sleep at night………still doesn’t and won’t make your blatherings accurate

    This is what happens when you hire someone whose only qualification for the job is a familial relationship with someone who used to be a big shot.

    Hillary Clinton will be our next President. And she will be running as the most qualified candidate in the history of the United States.

    You dunce, just ask Sandy Bergler. GW was barely in office. You Demwits had numerous chances to kill or capture OBL, even had him served up to you on a Sudanese Silver Platter. Everything you brain-dead Americommies touch either goes bankrupt or boom. You might as well make it official and rename your party – DUMBPHUKOCRATS.

  • Greg c

    She’d make a really good president – just as bad as Obama.

    What would Christopher Stevens do?

    Question: What do all of these eight incidents have in common?
    Hint1: It is NOT that they were our diplomatic posts.
    Hint2: No, it is NOT that the perp committed suicide.
    Answer: All were perpetrated by ISLAMIC JIHADISTS.

  • HeyHey

    Anyone ever find out what documents Sandy Berger stole?

  • constitution First

    Having an incompetent, do-nothing Secretary of State was a perfect match for an Administration without a Foreign Policy. And just when you think they couldn’t top that, they found someone even less competent: J.F. Kerry.
