    You actually were attacking the source of the article and not the content thereof.
    And, yes. I made a fondue in my short typing that. Is that a bad thing?

    I did. You are doing your typical blind ignore duck and cover for the administration and your oh so clever counter response was I did the same with the Bush administration. And all you have to do now is offer some sort of proof I was less than critical of Bush. Considering I left the GOP over Bush's lack of fiscal responsibility and have been pretty open about foreign policy failures including (and especially) post war ops in both Afghanistan and Iraq that have prolonged our presence there and cost lives...good luck. Or better yet...stick with your stellar debate tactics.

    Prove you weren't? Can't prove a negative. Thought you knew that.

    So, if nobody tells you that you have the flu, you must be healthy. No wonder health care is so expensive. We simply must tell the doctors to quit telling people they're sick.

    And the IED that was used at our consulate's front gate five days before the attack on the British Ambassador? Just some kids having fun?

    Yes, thanks to "Kerry noted that administration officials have testified at eight hearings on Benghazi, provided 20 briefings on the subject and turned over to Congress some 25,000 documents related to the killings."

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

    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.
    No, its about finding out who was responzible for ignoring their request for more security, for ignoring the danger of keeping the Ambasador there, after a hole was blown in their compound wall and for the lies about the You-Tube Video.

    .....Hillary to the Father of the Dead Seal days after the attack..." We're going to arrest and prosecute " the You-Tube Director.

    Not the Terrorist, that Patreas testified they knew almost immediately was responsible, but.....a YouTube Director.."

    Aren't you folks getting tired of trying to defend dirt bags and scum of the earth liars ?

    No...it makes it at least extraordinarily incompetent, absolutely neglectful, and borderline criminal THAT we still dont know and that no one has bothered to find out. but that has been this administrations standard. Gosh...we dont know WHO ****ed up. It wasnt me. I didnt know. Did you know? Gosh no...heck...Why should I know? Im just in charge of the State Department, DoJ, WH. Why should I know who is conducting international operations under my watch?

    No, it means that if you have the sniffles, it doesn't mean you have a fatal disease.

    We don't have all the facts, that doesn't mean crucifixions are in order.

    And yet...you made the positive assertion. Which means you just made a stupid comment. Got it.
