    Disgraceful photo. Apologies to the family of Chris Stevens. Catholic Online, are you sure this is the type of news service you want to become? How would you like it if someone posted a photo of your loved one being dragged through the mud......dead. What's your point? Shame.

    The photo cover of this article sums up the Obama Admin foreign policy achievements. The whole world is going up in flames and the media is covering up Obama's disastrous foreign policy. We were already in dangerous times. Obama just exacerbated the situation. Obama is such a hardcore ideologue that he has no heart to oppose his Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood allies.

    Not to split hairs, but the article says it was the State Department that refused to bolster security, while the headline states- incorrectly- that it was Obama. Nothing in the article even suggests Obama was at all involved in what would obviously have been an in-house matter... which makes the headline seem unnecessarily misleading.
