When someone says “9/11” or “911” or “September 11th” or even “the 11th” what do you think of? 3,000 dead. The world Trade Center. New York. The Twin Towers. The Pentagon. Two American Airlines flights and United Airlines flight 175. Fallen loved ones. Firefighters, paramedics, policemen and others who lost their lives that day ON GEORGE W. BUSH’S WATCH. And remember, Bush had early and *repeated* CIA warnings which he chose to IGNORE. All life is equally precious, and yet Republicans are pretending that the attack in Benghazi - which happened on FOREIGN SOIL - is somehow *worse* than 09.11.2001. And for one reason only: they cannot stand that there is a black man in the White House. Benghazi is a faux GOP crisis and a craven attempt to smear President Obama.
Republicans hate President Obama more than they love their own country. Because of his race.
- More Americans have died at our U.S. Embassies under Ronald Reagan and George Bush than any U.S. President in the last 30 years. If Benghazi happened another three times, that would still be fewer American deaths than under Ronald Reagan alone —and sadly, that doesn’t even include the foreign deaths.
