    When will the media start reporting the critical issues of the day ??? This obsessive march to make the general look like he violated a teenager and told all the US secrets is really bad journalism borders on Rush L. type of BS
    The man had an affair get over it. It happens in our society and has since biblical times. We have more important
    issues to tend to than th tabloid journalism you are doing. I would vote for him for president any time

    can't seem to get anyone to answer my question. if amb stevens feared for his and his staffs lives why did he wait for anyone to come to protect or rescue them ?i'm sure he had access to transportation to get out of that situation.and i'm sure he was told he should do so if he felt he should leave knowing those crazies and what their capable of no one would blame him.
