 With every McCain-Graham Benghazi echo ringing like Salvation Army bell trying to wring out spare change from largely cashless consumers, Will they dare speak of reports that Salafist militia have captured and plan to mutilate and kill 12 men for homosexuality?

   I sometimes defend muslims as being no more crazy than Christians.I still believe  our involvement in UN operations in Libya, most notably our willingness to take a support position and not leading the mission, is a triumph of Obama foreign policy over Bush's war on terror.

after the rusty iron rococo cartouche.

  We know Susan Rice is a safe GOP target for everything we already know about the GOP. We know the beltway natter loves to have a go at dissecting one of their own. Not one bit of fundraising viscera will miss the pail if McCain, Graham, and others succeed in bullying the re-elected enemy. We know the Republicans fear a Obama that is no longer tethered to opinion polls, and we have seen our POTUS stand up for his subordinate.

    All of this is great theater.

If the Republicans really want to attack Obama for the situation in Libya, can they do so by decrying the human rights abuses of the Salafis?

Obviously this is an area where no one should listen to them. Their record at home and in Africa on sexual identity questions speaks for itself. Much of their money doesn't want to hear McCain or even Graham talk about gayness any more than they have to, but if they are serious about challenging not just Rice, the POTUS, but the post-neocon foreign policy, they need to take the risk.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
