I will never forget when Jay Carney said, "Hey, these people knew it might be dangerous over there. They knew what they were signing up for."
Translation: "Those lost lives are really not that big a loss. They're not nearly as important as re-electing Obama."
Our diplomats and soldiers aren't dumb. They knew what they were signing up for; they just didn't know their commander-in-chief would abandon them and let them be killed without a fight.
