    So the State Dept is responsible for keeping CIA personnel safe? Almost all of the people at the embassy were CIA operatives or employees, including the 2 dead security contractors.

    Almost all. But, the CIA isn't responsible for their security. That has always been the state department's job. Even if they had relegated that job to the CIA, it's the state department that is responsible.

    That is ridiculous buck passing. Of course the CIA is responsible for its own employees and contractors, the State Dept has no way to protect people they don't even know exist. I wonder why the CIA gets a pass in your mind?

    That makes no sense. Are you saying we should pull all of our ambassadors every time we have an election?

    After he was murdered by terroist, NOT a uprising or riot
    Uhh, even if it had been an uprising or riot, it still would have been an act of terror...like Obama said the very next day.

    it was politically expediant for them to first, Publicize a vague YouTube Video, make sure it was distributed to as many radical Islamic backwater countries as possible and then blame everything on the director.
    Yeah, it didn't actually work that way, but I'm sure you're not really interested in the truth if it gets in the way of your fictional narrative.

    All other secondary issues could be ignored, like safety or more security, or at least more security on SEPTEMBER 11TH !!!!
    Yes, because the only place in the world it was 9/11 was in Benghazi. Everywhere else it was some other date.

    The fact is they did amplify security in many different ways across the world. Obviously, something was missed, and this is what needs to be fixed. But that's what I and the current Administration has been saying all along. So what exactly are you getting at?

    And I'll stop looking upon the libs as scummy low life individuals when they show sincere HUMAN attributes like Character and Integrity, and SINCERE COMPASSION instead of putting their political well being first and foremost.


    You do realize no one takes your opinion seriously when you say things like this, don't you? I'm only responding because I have time to kill before I go do some work moving things.

    After Benghazzi they reminded me of adolescent punks who scrambled to get their lies straight so they could fool the morons.
    As you are a Republican, I have no doubt you're quite familiar what that looks like.

    Well we're not all Obama voters
    Okay...???

    and don't arbitrarily believe everything that they tell us, especially when its an OBVIOUS lie.
    Yeah, I'm just going to go out on a limb and say with the mindset you have, you're probably not the best person to determine what's obvious and what's not.

    Otherwise if it walks like a duck, quaks like a duck and flies like a duck...
    Then it's John McCain?

    Probably not where you were heading with that, but it seemed appropriate nonetheless.

    Read it again...I'm clearly attacking the idea someone cannot question a questionable source. I'm not attacking anything about the article, I'm merely pointing out the fact this was a Republican lawyer talking to a disreputable Republican news source and to suggest someone cannot question the integrity of this story based on those grounds is asinine.

    Hopefully you'll understand it this time. If not, let me know, and I'll try to draw you a picture.

    Under Obama's leadership, anything which might even loosely be connected to Obama is Obama's responsibility. You remember that one time when that one dude from over yonder who did that one thing which caused those people to do that stuff? Yeah, that was Obama's fault. Just ask Lindsey Graham or Fox News.

    Unless things has changed drastically, CIA types fill different posts within the embassy. You could have CIA types as a cultural attache, commo specialists, with USAID, the thing is they fill valid slots within an embassy. You could have a couple with the military attaches or almost anyplace.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    You read it again:
    Yes, imagine the audacity of people to suggest something a Republican lawyer told a disreputable Republican news site may not quite be as serious as suggested...
    You're attacking the source, not the substance.

    If you knew you wouldn't be asking me. "Probably" doesn't make for much of a debate,which is why many Americans want facts instead. You're obviously in the other camp.
