    They had fallen behind the counter at Walmart. The cleaning person found them. They hadn't been picked up because the sequester eliminated the funding for intel photos of Benghazi. The sequester is vewy, vewy specific, and Obama has no latitude in such matters. He's only the president.

But we do know that Please re-read the sentence and get it clear before you respond again.
    Laughing, you keep dodging what YOU typed, not what the OP typed, which FYI is the more accurate sentence. YOU said 4 STATE officials, no mention of the CIA.

    And I'd say IF there is ANY proof it is yet to come.

    You keep repeating that lie, and maybe someone will eventually believe it. Anyone with an IQ larger than their shoe size will know I was criticizing the idea we cannot critique a source.

    No, just the people who clearly don't understand the simple words on the page, and then use their misunderstanding to insult me.

    By the way, I can't help but notice you've since backed off your insults, and instead moved to a conspiracy theory. I take it this is your concession where you realized you were wrong about what I said? I would appreciate you showing that ounce of integrity I mentioned.

    It's very obvious that you and your ilk don't want to find out who's behind the curtain controlling the conversation.
    My ilk? What is my ilk?

    We prefer to hold the people responsible for these deaths accountable, including both the ones in Libya and in our government.
    The ones in the government weren't responsible for their deaths, they were responsible for the lack of support. So, as I said before, let's figure out why the support wasn't there and fix it.

    Why do I have to keep repeating myself for you? If you don't want me to think you lack intelligence, then demonstrate the basic ability to comprehend what you respond to. I don't like dealing with unintelligent people and I prefer not to think of anyone I interact with as unintelligent. But when you consistently demonstrate an inability to comprehend what I've said, what choice do I have?

    All I'm asking is this...apologize for your obviously mistaken reaction to what I said and acknowledge I've stated on multiple occasions I believe the focus should be on fixing the process and finding those who were responsible for carrying out the attack. Do this and my opinion of you will increase dramatically, and perhaps then we can have a much better discussion.

    Perhaps the shoe you mentioned fits you.
    Only if it is a Nike size 12. Any other shoe you provide probably doesn't come close.

    It has long since ceased having any biological function, but your ilk is located right next to your gizzard. It still determines your political leanings, but that's about all your ilk does these days. My ilk is much busier, and I don't even have a gizzard. Diversity exemplified.

    It's impossible to believe that the spawn of the Chicago democrat political machine would threaten anybody, ever.

    Can the "who" and the "why" always be seperated?
    e.g. If the "why" is that a decision was made not to send support and not to pursue the perps ... don't you need to know the "who" to determine the legitimacy of the "why"?

    8 months "is a long time ago".

    Hell its archaic, antique, a relative fossill of a issue.

    Lol...I love watching liars try to worm their way out of the lies they told to cover up the lie that started this mess.

    You're right. Attempting to separate the people responsible from the "process" is an attempt to distract from the obvious. The "process" in any function of government is a wholly human construction directed by humans. We know the order to assist our people in Banghazi was never given. No "process" is involved in that decision.

    Yes. The who may be part of the why, but the why is far more critical. But unless it's your contention the who were deliberately wanting Americans to die, I think it's safe to say the problem was more with the process, not the persons.

    Completely false.

    Let's say the determination was made we could not afford extra security at the compound. Is that a "who" or a why? That's a why. If the request for security didn't get passed up the chain because other intelligence said we had greater need for forces in other places, that's a why, not a who.

    Unless you're alleging an intentional act of endangering Americans, the who is separated from the why.

    The "process" in any function of government is a wholly human construction directed by humans. We know the order to assist our people in Banghazi was never given.
    Yes, but why? What matters more, who is in charge or why they gave the order? Do you really need to know Person A, or do you need to know what we can do to make sure Person A does a better job?

    The why is far more important. The "who" is just what Republicans want to use to find more reasons to criticize the Obama administration. The who is political, the why is what's important.
