    oh? is he familiar with victoria toensing?

    is he aware that benghazi survivors have reportedly suffered amputations and permanent brain damage from smoke inhalation?

    why won't he let congress have access to them?

    whether he ever finds out or not, we will

    Another hearing to ask the same questions over and over again hoping for a different answer.

    I didn't say I accepted Bush's incompetence and I wouldn't accept it from Obama. That Embassy was a CIA operation, they were in charge of security and they should take all the blame. Personally, I think the CIA is still riddled with Bush era incompetents that make a career out of faulty intelligence. For all we know they may have purposely ignored those warnings hoping to discredit Obama and help Romney in the election. Lets' face it, it sure would not be the first time the CIA screwed up and people died.

    Of COURSE you wont accept it from Obama. And yet...the first thing out of your mouth is not what went wrong...but George Bush! George Bush! Even with the Obama state department, 4 years later...it has to be Bush. Oh...and throw Romney into the mix...as if that has ANY relevance to the failings in Bengahazi.

    Stay classy...

    Like I said Benghazi was a CIA operation not State Dept. That's why there is no credibility in blaming anyone but them. You complain about me blaming Bush when your accusations abut Obama are totally off base. Very classy.

    The CIA's secret role helps explain why security appeared inadequate at the U.S. diplomatic facility. State Department officials believed that responsibility was set to be shouldered in part by CIA personnel in the city through a series of secret agreements that even some officials in Washington didn't know about.

    It also explains why the consulate was abandoned to looters for weeks afterward while U.S. efforts focused on securing the more important CIA quarters. Officials say it is unclear whether the militants knew about the CIA presence or stumbled upon the facility by following Americans there after the attack on the consulate
    The CIA's secrecy affected how the U.S. government dealt with the families of the two slain contractors. Kate Quigley, Mr. Doherty's sister, said officials who visited her mother in Massachusetts identified themselves as State Department representatives. Officials said the State Department deferred to the CIA to contact the families and the "notification teams" included CIA officers.

    So its the Bush administration in charge of the CIA. And the requests DIDNT come in to the state department. 5 years into his presidency...Its STILL not his fault.

    I disagree with part of your statement. The "who" is arbitrary, the why is what's important. We have already investigated the why and have already begun making those changes.

    And right now...we know precisely jack and dammit about any of the details as to who what and why.
    Those who are in need to know already know plenty, as evidenced by the mountains of documents and testimony transcripts, etc.

    No, I wasn't. I was attacking the notion people should not be allowed to question the validity of a source, especially given the dubious nature of this source.

    I wasn't attacking the article, I was attacking the ridiculous idea one should not question a possibly biased source.

    And, yes. I made a fondue in my short typing that. Is that a bad thing?
    A little worrisome, yes.

    A) not really and B) this article does that in what way? It doesn't. It just fans the flames. It's meant for people just like you, who only want to listen to that which you already agree with, not something which might provide the slightest bit of objectivity.

    What we need to know is WHY the process broke down and what can be done (if anything) to prevent in the future. The YouTube thing is nothing but a red herring. It was a red herring when presented by Democrats immediately after and it is a red herring now by Republicans to push a "cover-up" narrative. The YouTube discussion is a waste of time and the fact you're still talking about it is a waste of both of our time.

    And we know why troops weren't sent in after we began received word of the assaults, we've already been told why. It was during the testimonies. So what we need to do is figure how the logistics to be better equipped for the future. That's what matters.

    Aren't you folks getting tired of trying to defend dirt bags and scum of the earth liars ?
    I'll make you a deal. The moment you quit thinking everything a Democrat/liberal does is wrong, evil and scummy, I'll consider taking advice from you. Until that time comes, you'll just be another incredibly biased poster in my eyes.

    While it really is irrelevant to this particular thread, feel free to watch more Jon Stewart or check out LiberalViewer on YouTube. There's no doubt they have their biases as well, but you cannot ignore the video evidence they provide.

I'll remind you that while the actual attack took place very early in G.W. Bush's administration, all the planning and preparation for it, along with all the warnings that ought to have been apparent to a government that was paying enough attention, took place on Clinton's watch.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    I hate to speak for others, but I believe he's talking about this:

    Kurt Eichenwald writes that the Bush administration received more warnings about terrorist plots before 9/11 than the now-infamous memo “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the U.S.” Eichenwald writes that particular memo did not include a specific warning—but several others did. In May 2001, there was a warning of a terrorist operation planned by a “group presently in the United States,” and in June, a brief that called an attack “imminent.” Eichenwald writes the information “Mr. Bush was told in the weeks before that infamous briefing reflected significantly more negligence than has been disclosed."

    So before the attack, when Obama didn't send more security -- faulty intel is not criminal.

    Again, you focus on Limbaugh. Jimbo's focusing on Bush. I swear you guys are like cats -- ooh a squirrel!
    You brought up the "right wing talk show host" as a pathetic comparison to Politicians who are so corrupt, so devoid of character, integrity and compassion, they would lie to the faces of the Family who lost their loved ones in Benghazzi.

    You guys will sell out on just about any level.

    The thing is you folks think of that as a positive, it just means that the train wrecks are much larger.
