The way the right has politicized this has made the family of the dead Navy Seal and the Ambassador sick to death...
I hear that Willard Romney's dads campaign manager has come out and said that Romney is not the choice for President, seems the only ones who want him still are the billionaires and the idiots.
Romney and his supporters hate this country, that much is clear, they will do anything to talk it down, like this issue , attacking GM, failed companies, we are under attack by internal terrorists known as the tea party...At least one of the family members of the victims of the Sept. 11 attack on Benghazi wants the world to know that she is happy with the treatment she has got from the Obama administration since the tragedy.
Heather Smith is the widow of State Department Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, who died in the first wave of attacks as armed assailants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Amb. Chris Stevens also died in the initial attack. Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Dougherty were killed later, when an annex building outside the compound was hit by mortars after U.S. personnel retreated there.
Heather Smith, who lives in The Hague, Netherlands, issued a statement Tuesday to The Cable.
"First, let me thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love my family has received in the wake of this tragedy. As the country mourns the death of four great patriots, my family is grieving for a husband and father lost. The amazing tributes to him have given the entire world a glimpse of the man we loved and we are thankful for every kind word," she said.

The questions is what Obama knew exactly and should he be the one suggesting additional staffing.
In light of Arab Spring, maybe many embassies should have been or were actually were bolstered.
I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
And whose control might they have fallen under? Well, presumably it’s the “other government agency” or “other government entity” the lawmakers and witnesses referred to; Issa informed the public that this agency was not the FBI.
“Other government agency,” or “OGA,” is a common euphemism in Washington for the CIA. This “other government agency,” the lawmakers’ questioning further revealed, was in possession of a video of the attack but wasn’t releasing it because it was undergoing “an investigative process.” .....snip~

Seems the Washington Post points out just how hypocrisy exists within the lefts own party.
"Clinton Accepts Blame for Benghazi"
Once again, Obama knew nothing about it. The 16 trillion dollar debt isn't his fault. Four consecutive trillion dollar deficits aren't his fault. The slowest recovery from a recession ever isn't his fault. Ongoing American deaths in Aphghanistan aren't his fault (oh but he did have time to send out a form letter to the families of those fallen soldiers). The rise of Iran and failure of sanctions is not his fault. There is nothing he could do about the ongoing genocide in Syria.
Now he is hiding behind the skirt of Hillary Clinton. And the first death of an American ambassador in 30 years is not his fault.
Here is the way a real President behaves when things don't go right. But, I guess you need a concience to own up to your own failures.

If I were Obama, I would try to diffuse this Debate-Bomb right now. Trying to do so in the debate, without a prior statement, will not be a party.
