Republicans pushing for a Benghazi investigation are "obnoxious, opportunistic liars," according to pundit and Huffington Post columnist Bob Cesca. "They entirely ignored the dozen-plus consulate/embassy attacks that occurred when George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were allegedly 'keeping us safe.'"
He lists out thirteen embassy attacks that happened under Bush's watch.
In one of these attacks a US diplomat was killed. David Foy was directly targeted by attackers in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2006, and died along with three others.
The most fatal attack took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 2003. 36 were killed including nine Americans.
In another attack on Karachi, 12 were killed and 51 wounded. In Sana'a, Yemen, 16 were killed including an American student. In Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 9 were killed.
Between 2 and 6 people were killed in attacks on US embassies in Calcutta, Islamabad, Tashkent, Istanbul, and Damascus in the years 2002-2008.
Embassies in Athens, Greece, Denpasar, Indonesia, and Sana'a, Yemen were also attacked during Bush's presidency without causing fatalities.
