the troops in Iraq had the weapons, back up, intelligence etc that was needed to do their job...all the human beings you mentioned were attacked at a time when they were not prepared or warned. They were slaughtered because SOMEONE refused to allow local assets to help. You can't compare a planned, equipped action with a terrorist attack. If you are comparing Benghazi with Iraq...how about comparing the way the war in Iraq was run but they way the war in Afghanistan is being run????
With hurricane Sandy looming over New York, preparations have been made to brace for the worst, and that means even the New York Stock Exchange is going to stay closed.

With that in mind, what would have been a nerve-wrecking week of five days of anxiety might boil down to only three - with the election looming a week from tomorrow. These massive storms, and other disasters, remind us of what's most important yet having the funds to weather these storms also highlights why it's so important to have the most prosperous nation possible. Right now, we pray there is no loss...
