Stupid Is As Stupid Does
You can lead a dumb-ass to water, but you can't make him think

At least 8,000 Americans are being evacuated from Lebanon. Not all, but many are pissin' and moanin' about how the American government has basically dropped the ball on getting them out in a timely manner.

Below, I have listed some information that took me all of 10 seconds to find on the internet.

July 30, 1997 The United States Department of State warns all U.S. citizens of the dangers of travel to Lebanon. This replaces the Department of State Travel Warning for Lebanon dated July 15, 1996.

May 12, 1998 The U.S. Department of State on Monday warned Americans "of the dangers of travel to Lebanon," citing past terrorist attacks targeting U.S. citizens.

August 28, 2000 The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Lebanon and recommends that Americans exercise caution while traveling there.

May 20, 2004 This Travel Warning is being reissued to remind U.S. citizens of ongoing safety and security concerns in Lebanon. It is being reissued without change after periodic review. This supersedes the Travel Warning for Lebanon issued December 4, 2003.

April 21, 2005 The State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs issued the following updated Travel Warning. This Travel Warning is being issued to update information on threats to American citizens and interests in Lebanon. It supersedes the Travel Warning for Lebanon issued November 18, 2004.

May 2, 2006 The State Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs issued the following updated Travel Warning. This Travel Warning updates information on threats to American citizens and interests in Lebanon. It supersedes the Travel Warning for Lebanon issued November 7, 2005.

July 13, 2006 The Department of State urges American citizens to defer travel to Lebanon. American citizens are urged to evaluate their personal security posture and consider departing in light of the current situation in Lebanon. This supersedes the Travel Warning issued on May 2, 2006

These meatheads can be lumped in with the Katrina morons. Plenty of warning for both groups but they failed to heed them and got their asses handed to them. Of course Uncle Sam is to blame on both accounts. Nevermind personal accountability!
