I do get so tired of misrepresented fact, specially whe people pretend to be well informed, or make a living selling their opinions. Cal Thomas used quotes to misquote what was actually said.

What was actually said was Ahmadinejad quoting a prior statement made by Khomeini which was "...this regieme occupying Jerusalum must vanish from the page of time". http://www.mohammadmossadegh.com/news/rumor-of-the-century/ As has been said, a lie goes around the world twice before the truth can get its pants on!

Israel does not have the strategic depth to wait for an Iranian attack in order to retaliate. Ahmedinejad knows exactly what he is doing.
"How could this happen?" asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in response to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others.

The rioting by Muslims supposedly "inflamed" by a cheaply produced YouTube film about the Prophet Muhammad was cited as the reason, but we have learned the attacks may have been planned in advance, some to coincide with the anniversary of Sept. 11. What doesn't Secretary Clinton get? The actions and statements of Islamic extremists have been visible for some time.
