The problem with your point form scenario, Duma, is that it has little relationship to reason or fact.

* You focus now on Libya because someone died, but remember that there was unrest in many areas over that period, much of which was explicitly directed at the film. Therefore, it was, in fact, a reasonable thing initially to think that Libya was more of the same, just with worse consequences. With the benefit of some more time and information, it looks as if what happened in Libya was different, hut this was not necessarily obvious at first blush and it is classic monday morning quaterbacking to suggest that it should have been.

* Efforts *were* being made at increased security and anti-terrorism investigations there well in advance. Obviously, it wasn't enough to prevent what happened, but based on the little we know at this point, it is clearly political claptrap to lay the blame at Obama's feet.

* It is more monday morning quarterbacking to insist that something more could have been done. A few extra guards would have done nothing to block a *rocket* attack.

I.e., your assault has more to do with politics than anything that anyone knows or that could be done that you know.
