    It's not actually, as I wasn't attacking the article, but rather the idea people shouldn't be allowed to question. Good try though, I'm sure it made you feel good when you typed it.

    Americans were killed. It was awful. But let's worry more about doing what needs to be done to prevent it from happening again.

    Do you know who authorized the arms sales in Mexico that got 'lost'? Do you know who ignored the terrorist threat notification regarding the individuals in Boston? Yeah...apparently...neither does anyone in the administration. That means the joint is being run by horribly incompetent people...or they are lying. Sadly...lying would be the lesser of those two evils. Not that it 'matters'...right?
    Just what EXACTLY do you think happens in these situations? Do you think the State Department sat on their hands for 3 months and only received one transmission which said the only place which could be attacked on September 11th was Benghazi and then said, "Nah, I don't care"? You know as well as I do these people likely sift through thousands of intelligence pieces, and you know as well as I do our law enforcement prevents many many would be attackers. Yes, sometimes things get missed and it's tragic when it happens. But I think things need to be kept in proper perspective.

    But this story isn't about any of that. This story is not about finding ways to better protect Americans. This story is just another way to try and fan the flames of Obama hate, because Republican voters want to believe there's a chance to remove the Democrat from office with disgrace. That's what this is.

It is a good thing perjury only happens with sworn testimony or else we would need a federal prison just for faux news.

    You guys keep on grabbing for those straws and maybe one day you will get the evil overlord Obama.
    It's nice to hear those on the left mitigate and justify down murder.

    I mean, you did exactly what J-mac said you would do, attack the source and offer up irrelevent BS.

    If Obama or Hillary gets burned by Benghazzi it will be no ones fault but their own. I know, I know its hard for those on the left to fathom the whole painful concept of personal responsibillity, owing to your blame of Fox News on the lies coming out of the WH on Benghazzi, but its time for you people to grow up.

    I would classify this whole affair as a political witch hunt if it weren't for those questions you just asked. No one knows their names or where they are at. Do they really exist? John Kerry supposedly does, he said he talked to them. But as far as I can tell, the media, congress or anyone else has not idea who these people are or where they are at.

    For the time being I will sit back and watch and listen. Watergate took around 2 years to finally come out to where Nixon felt its full force. Time will tell.
    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.

    The real cover up is the reason we bombed Libya in the first place. I wonder why nobody is interested in hearing that?

    Thats a pretty stupid comment. Care to offer ANY indicator where I have not been appropriately critical of the Bush administration? Or for that matter supportive of several of Obamas terror responses?

    Well, if you want an intelligent comment, give one. Stupid comments beget stupid comments.

    You cant fix what was ****ed up til you know who ****ed up, how, and why. And right now...we know precisely jack and dammit about any of the details as to who what and why. Even Hillary said "some people in the state department" recieved memos, recieved requests, participated in reports, particopated in decision making processes". Some people...but doesnt know who...and cant say what.

    Common theme in the current administration. "It wasnt me..."

    You're right that we don't know what happened. That hardly makes it a smoking gun if we don't know.

    There wasn't suffiicient evidence to take action in any of these cases. But don't let that stop you from partisan attacks.
    I suppose that attempt on the British ambassador's life and their subsequent removal of him for Libya wasn't a big enough red flag.

    Not really, no. That doesn't mean there would be an attack on the consulate in Benghazi. 2+2 =/= 5.
