Usually every time Benghazi is brought up in facebook, you’ll see liberals posting this list of “Embassies/Consulates Attacked Under the Bush Administration”:
January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.
June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al Qaeda attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.

September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband.
Yep, whenever Americans want to talk about Benghazi… those freakin’ liberals will always bring this list up.
While it is always tragic and horrible that a US embassy or a consulate gets attacked around the world, you can’t really compare the others to Benghazi Sept. 11, 2012. The reason you can’t compare them is because the Bush administration didn’t try to cover any of them up. They didn’t blame any of them on a stupid youtube video. Help arrived at ALL OF THEM and military DID respond to past embassy/consulate attacks.
Another thing to point out is… was there any Ambassadors killed??? Looking at the list, I don’t see any of our government people killed other than the US Diplomat David Foy. In Benghazi debates through facebook, David Foy’s name was brought up a lot. David Foy’s death was already solved. He was killed by a suicide bomber:
There was no mystery to any of those embassy/consulate attacks pointed out above. So that list above are not the same as Benghazi at all.
It’s just the liberals lousy excuse of trying to blame Bush. Yep, blame it all on Bush. That’s all the left can come up with. Just their lousy attempt at trying to defend Obama.
Benghazi matters ’cause it happened on a 9/11/01 anniversary plus an important government official an Ambassador was killed for no reason. An Ambassador is a VERY IMPORTANT and VALUABLE government official. That is why trying to find out what happened to Chris Stevens matters. His mysterious death deserves to get solved and Chris Stevens deserves his justice. What part of that don’t you understand? Chris Stevens was a patriot and he belonged to us. When you don’t care about him, then you don’t care for America. You are a traitor to our country when you don’t care about Benghazi or if you don’t want to investigate the truth about the tragedy.
It really is despicable and shameful how some don’t care about Benghazi. If a family member or a loved one of yours was killed there, you’d want answers too, right? Think about that for a moment. Part of an Ambassador’s job is to protect people. Not only the USA but also the country they were signed to host in.
Whatever Chris Stevens did there before he was killed he tried to protect us from something and I honestly believe he tried to stop a gun running operation and that’s why he was killed — just an observation.
I think that’s why Americans deserves to know how he really died and what happened to him. Nobody knows how Chris Stevens really died. It was speculated that Chris died of smoke inhalation but I find it a bunch of bullshit — it’s just speculation, period. There are rumors that he was beaten, raped, sodomized, paraded all over town, etc. but we’ll soon learn the official cause of death of Ambassador Stevens. Trey Gowdy and the Select committee needs to get their hands on Chris’s autopsy report which is gonna be tough to get ’cause I bet the Obama administration is hiding it somewhere.
We deserve the truth of Benghazi.
The left shouldn’t be so scared of this. They don’t realize how moronic and dumb they all look when they run away and cry. There is no reason for the left to be scared. They are just “loyal” to their party and too obsessed with having opposites of opinion than the right. They don’t agree with anything on the right. Every thought is different.
Even if the truth does come out of Benghazi, I have a feeling the left still won’t care. They’ll still defend Barack and Hillary. Attack those evil conservatives and blame Bush. You get the deal.
Never forget Benghazi.
