Obama speaks to U.N. amid foreign policy criticism from Romney, Ryan

Washington (CNN) – Amid criticism from his Republican opponent that his foreign policy "projects weakness," President Barack Obama confronted Iran and Syria on Tuesday and warned those who killed an American diplomat in Libya that they would be tracked down.

"The attacks on our civilians in Benghazi were attacks on America," Obama told the United Nations General Assembly. "...And there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice."

  2. ThinkAgain: Mittens' 47% ... Veterans, grandma and the disabled are all moochers!

    @truth hurts: "Why isn't the LSM asking the obvious questions about the ambassador's death?! WHERE was the heightened security on 9/11 and why was one of our ambassor's left virtually unprotected in a volatile, dangerous country where there had been several previous attacks?!! THEY DROPPED THE BALL!!! NONE of these guys should have been placed in that position."

    The investigation is not yet complete; why don't you wait until you get the FACTS before you spout off? Oh, that's right, you're just another dittohead, incapable of thinking for yourself ...

    Every time Mittens open his mouth he makes it worse for himself. Why is this guy so out of touch?
    He simply hasn't a chance against Obama, who may not be perfect, but the Country would rather take their chances with Obama than the BS Romney/Ryan are spouting.

    Like the MittWitt has any concept of Foreign Policy. Gee, I think there is a reason he is commonly known in Great Britain as Mitt The Twit. Oh and Mitt, we will not let you start World War III to make your handlers in Israel happy. If they want to bomb Iran--go ahead. Just leave us out of it.

    So instead of becoming part of the solution, Romney and Ryan become part of the problem in an attempt to score political points. Why can't they present their own supportive solutions to strengthen our nation? Why are negative attacks their only solution to improving their popularity, particularly as our President stands up to our aggressors? Can't they see that their attacks at such times diminish our presence as a nation in the eyes of our aggressors, or do they not care about that?

    ===========================================================================================
    MANY facts are already known and common knowledge. An attack AT NIGHT by over 100 armed gunmen from 3 sides, involving MORTARS and RPGs. They were strong enough to repel a counter attack by a local militia. The attack was also carried to their "safe house".

    FACT: The Obama administration LIED about this to cover up the fact that it was a 9/11 terrorist attack by AQ and others.

    FACT: There wasn't ANY American force within distance to help them.

    FACT: The LSM barley reported the facts and has buried this story, along with the 4 Americans that were needlessly sacrificed due to the incompetence of the Obama adminstration. Just like the Fast & Furious debacle that got Americans and Mexicans killed.
