At least we get to see people like this in Libya. I feel sorry for them, that they get lumped in with the others. That's why they're doing this, I assume. And because they genuinely care.

My university was evacuated this morning after a bomb threat claiming to be from al-Qaeda. I'm well off campus now and safe but... Jesus.

Just doing some googling on this story about the President/his admin having 48 hours notice about potential attacks being perpetrated on the embassy. The vibe I'm getting is that one source originally reported it(seems like it might've been The Independent, maybe), and then a bunch of far-right-wing sites jumped on it. Just look at these sites that came up in Google.

Obama Administration Had 48 Hour Warning – Did Nothing Mark America

EXPOSED! Obama Was Warned About Libya 48 Hours Prior And Did Nothing

Diplomatic sources: State Department had credible intel 48 hours before attacks that U.S. embassies might be targeted; Update: White House denies Hot Air

REPORT: State Department had credible information 48 hours before consulate attacks The Right Scoop -

For some reason, the actual content of this page was deleted, but still, just look at the banner on this page.

http://theconservativetreehouse.com/...y-did-nothing/

I don't know if there's any truth to this, but at the moment it seems like a great deal of the noise surrounding it is coming from far right sources that salivate at this kind of thing.

Where's your university? Glad you're safe.

UT and ND State were evacuated due to threats. Positively frightening.

Based on Digitize's location, I'm going with UT.

Yes, I am aware of that. When I was responding to Sean, my point was that there had to have been something suspicious to these actors because the names of the characters were intially related to American politicians. But of course, not everyone can put one and one together.

I reall don't think these actors were as innocent as they want people to believe. Or they were very foolish and naive.

Obama Administration Had 48 Hour Warning – Did Nothing
This is pretty much the state of right wing media these days. There have been 2 stories recently posted here in FYM where multiple outlets all stole lines directly from one source, they all claimed to have evidence yet the original outlet never released their "source". See the Obama lawyer story and the Christian killed on Egyptian tv.

You really just need to plant the seed, facts no longer matter.

That's a nice gesture from the people in Beghazi. I'm glad they also realise that there's a small bunch of idiots out there ruining it for the rest of the muslim population.

The response of the Republican ticket to this event is deplorable and disturbing.

Foreign policy far more than influence on the economy or jobs is where the president can really screw things up.

In light of the Romney/Ryan response, their willingness to not merely stretch the truth but outright misrepresent the situation, I fear a Romeny administration would be disastrous for the country.

Valparaiso University (the school I currently attend) was threatened as well. Not sure if the three school threats were related or not, but I know that I received a few warning e-mails today.

oh dear diitze & 212 sorry to hear scary news

namkruR-- "interesting" that these sites about" Pres Obama 48 hrs warning did "nothing"...."

when only about a day or so before this happened there wa a Big opinion piece NYTimes (not i think the NYT is a liberal/progressive paper in general, but at times in certain areas) bout how W was warned about Osama pre- 9-11

i remember reading that Pres Clinton /or ?sandy Berger give really strong warnings to pres-elect GWB & staff . were basically ignored
