    What is worse, a political break this incredible lack of competence in the obama administration that got 4 Americans killed and we don't know if anything illegal happened in the ensuing cover up until we investigate. Where there is a cover up there is generally illegalities.

    I just wonder how everyone seems to jump straight to Obama. How come none of this outrage is directed at Hillary? No one is calling for her to resign, or to be fired. She was delegated the responsibilities for the security of our consulates and has admitted failure, yet you are still calling for Obama's impeachment. This is why it is so easy to dismiss your conspiracy theory, you CLEARLY have an agenda. That agenda seems to have blinded your ability to rationalize the situation.

There have been reports that the attack was hastily arranged in a matter of days and that the attackers were angry about the video.
    My whole point is that regardless of whether the video sparked it or not, it was a terrorist attack. I don't care if the video had Mohammed ****ing a cow, that doesn't give anyone the right to kill another person over it. The president should have announced that it was a terrorist attack (because that is what it was) and that we would focus on bringing those to justice that did the killing. Instead it did seem the president was apologizing over the video.

    That is a fair point, Hillary is definitely in the loop here but the buck stops in the white house, the oval office to be precise.

    I don't think going after Rice is very smart because she was just the one thrown out on the shows. I believe the truth lies somewhere from the White House to General Patreas. I don't buy the extramarital affair thing at all. It is highly convenient that it should happen in wake of Benghazi. I believe Republicans are attacking Rice so that Obama will choose Kerry as the Secretary of State and be able to get a Senate seat with Scott Brown. It is political strategy by the GOP.

    The truth will probably never be known. Our government is highly secretive now and have been for many years. They will cover it up and some false story will be given to the public. We can demand answers all we want, but our government doesn't give 2 cents what we demand.

    They will obviously stoop to any contrivance to ensure that conspiracy theorists can debate for years to come. I can't wait for the books

    I agree that it was an act of terror either way, which is exactly how Obama described it in his first address on the subject. Can you say that louder, Candy?

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    House intelligence chairman: Administration changed Libya talking points

    It's becoming clear I think why Patraeus didn't fall on his sword, the CIA did nothing wrong.

    I would dispute that Petraeus didn't fall over his sword.
