Stupid Right-Wing Tweets: Monica Crowley Edition


Shorter Monica: Why aren't we bombing Egypt and Libya?

For the answer to that question, let's look at recent precedent. During the Bush administration, the following consulates and embassies were attacked.

June 14, Karachi, Pakistan: bomb explodes outside American consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, killing 12. Linked to al-Qaeda.

Dec. 6, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia: terrorists storm the U.S. consulate, killing 5 consulate employees. 4 terrorists were killed by Saudi security.

Sept. 13, Damascus, Syria: an attack by four gunman on the American embassy is foiled.

Jan. 12, Athens, Greece: the U.S. embassy is fired on by an anti-tank missile causing damage but no injuries.

Sept. 16, Yemen: a car bomb and a rocket strike the U.S. embassy in Yemen as staff arrived to work, killing 16 people, including 4 civilians. At least 25 suspected al-Qaeda militants are arrested for the attack.

Those were attacks on US soil!!!!! What were the CONSEQUENCES for the ACTS OF WAR in Yemen, Greece, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan???
