Is there no one willing to admit that this might have happened out of well-intended ignorance? Just asking...

Honestly Cliff! You write, "is it not also possible that Obama, Clinton, and other senior officials actually did buy the al-Qaeda-is-dead theory that Lynch, Bergen, and others had proffered?" I thought about this question as I read your article. But how can this question be legitimate when time and again we have seen Obama, Clinton, and their ilk having commandeered the language (e.g., calling it "terrorism" instead of "Islamic terrorism," insisting on "workplace violence" in lieu of "Jihad")? Lying about the video notwithstanding (because that may have been done to cover their embarrassment after making the "error" you suggest), the misleading labeling to which they have subscribed is a very purposeful act used over and over again after many recent successful and thwarted Jihadist attacks by Islamists. This labeling is unquestionably deliberate, unmistakably done to advance an ideology, and obviously intended for political gain. Therefore it indicates our leaders know exactly what they are doing. It seems ridiculous to give these callous idealogues any sort of benefit of the doubt where no doubt should exist given the circumstances. We, as good people, should constantly second-guess ourselves and our biases. It makes us better stewards of the conservative cause. But in this case we need to believe what is clearly in front of our noses, rather than assuming we see through lying eyes.
The HP laptop I bought 6 months ago is a total dud. It seems to be wholly incompatible with recent versions of Microsoft software. Of course, HP's tech guys blame Microsoft, and the folks at Microsoft blame HP. I'm cuttin' my losses and buying an iMac. It is a gorgeous machine, it will pair nicely with our iPads, and the hardware and software are made by the same company. When I read the headline of your article, I knew it would say HP and Microsoft stocks were down. Maybe that's not entirely due to the growing popularity of tablets, eh?
"The violence goes both ways," writes Mr. Olson. Was it really necessary to state this as if Israeli defensive "violence" is morally equivalent to Palestinian terrorism? Give us a break and choose your words more judiciously. Please.

Mrs. Brown, what made you switch to those new-fangled CFLs to begin with?! They look weird, the light they emit is harsh, and to buy them is to declare the environmentalists winners - something I am loathe to do. I think I'd rather devote an entire closet (and I'm not loaded with storage) to house incandescents, and I pretty much have, than cooperate with those progressive simpletons. What were you thinking?
I feel a little out of place offering political commentary in response to what is ostensibly a post-mortem tribute to such a fine man as Ray Briem. But Michael, do you seriously consider MSNBC and Fox News to be equal in their "lack of 'objectivity'"? Just because we are all so immersed in left-wing talking points that those views seem to many to be middle-of-the-road, the relative conservatism of Fox doesn't constitute a "lack of objectivity" at all. If we were fortunate enough to have an objective and unbiased mainstream media, Fox would certainly rank as one among them. As it is, however, Fox stands almost alone in its fair and objective presentation of both sides. I know you are well aware of that fact. You should not state otherwise.

Hewitt says, "Polls of the military are showing a huge advantage among those on active duty for Mit Romney." But will that make any difference? Has Hewitt not heard that the Obama administration has made it very difficult for active military to vote? My friend living in Israel, an American citizen, says she used to be able to easily obtain a ballot to vote in U.S. elections. Now she is having a terrible time getting one. I hope Hewitt is right about all this. But with all of the shenanigans this administration will pull, and given the "low information" state of a left media-fed electorate, I plan to be plenty distracted on election day. Anything just to make it through that tense and fateful day.
This was not incompetence. THEY DIDN'T EVEN TRY TO TRACK THE GUNS!!! This administration has blood on its hands and lots of it. F&F makes Watergate look like kindergarten. So let's sum up. A president of 35 years ago is forced to resign and his minions go to jail for an illegal break-in of a psychiatrist's office - no one even skinned a knee. Today, several hundred people die, including an American officer, and a few lower level skapegoated government employees merely lose their jobs; their bosses get to skate. What's the difference? 35 years ago the perps were Republican. Today they are Democrats.

Michael, right or wrong, a lot of people who are aware of every point you make herein are nevertheless mortally afraid of something you didn't mention. Voter fraud, massive voter fraud. Maybe we are all over-hyping the potential harm this menace could do. But consider that much of the pessimism of conservatives stems from this fear. Don't underestimate it as a reason people think Obama will pull this election out of his bag of tricks. Everything else seems to go his way....to the point that some of us cannot even picture what an Obama loss might look like. All the favorable stats in the world won't raise people's confidence when they believe voter fraud could make a difference of at least several percentage points.

Ms. Marsden, this may well have nothing to do with subterfuge on Obama's part in order to gain "economic benefits." Since when has Obama sought any kind of benefits for American? Rather, it may have everything to do with Obama favoring our enemy over the country he "leads" in order to bring us down even further than he already has these past three years. (I recommend you see "2016: Obama's America" - d'Souza's movie is amazing.)
