    no. and that is surprising since you have released the names and those who purport to offer testimony are nowhere shown


    where is the same concern for EACH and EVERY one of the 4,488 Americans who lost their lives in an iraqi war that never should have been waged. but it is those who are responsible for those deaths who now question those in benghazi
    show the same interest in the lost American lives from that misbegotten misadventure we call the war in iraq
    do that and then you and your side will restore some credibility. but NOT until
    Therein lies a difference. Iraq was considered and Actual War. Do you have anything that Says Libya was an Actual War? Not a Civil war that we all know it was. But an Actual War wherein War was declared. In War there will be casualties.....although, when was the Last time An Ambassador was even killed in an actual War?

    What does it matter what their names are.....they will testify. All you can do is hope no more Dirt comes out to prove more Negligence, More Incompetency and of course more excuses by those on the left to trivialize the Anniversary of 911.

    U know the Anniversary of 911 that don't mean **** to those MOST of those on the left. Which is why it has been trivialized ever since Team Obama screwed the Pooch.

    Or to look at it another way, what would it take for you to finally admit it?
    Are you kidding me.....they could have a picture with 5 witnesses and they would still deny anything took place. As you notice.....99.99% of them can't even bring up all that was involved over the issue. Nor do they have anything to counter with.....other than Team Obamas talking points.

    Most cannot even figure out there was more in play than just the Attack on Benghazi. What was that saying by the GUMP. Stupid is as Stupid does.

Its far more likely I will clip it and throw it up in six months (as I did to those telling us how the presidential polls were all wrong and Romney is going win or the fast and furious was going to be the end Obama --- seriously?)

    The problem with me clipping this and bringing it up in six months is that six months from now I will have to explain to people what Benghazi was..... There is nothing of substance here... and those that think this is going to lead to an impeachment are bordering on delusional.

    The problem with Cons is they are good at creating controversial/shady deals, but they aren't good at understanding equivalence. Ya got nothin here, except wishful thinking. Call us when real news organizations are carrying this... thus far all posts have been from NewsMax and CNS. Again, political porn isn't good for your mind or soul.
    I see... So you, and other libs are going to cling to this absurd defense of the One until media matters, or daily KOS admits that the One is guilty eh?

    You tie yourself in knots asking others for classified info, or names that libs in power have been hiding as if we ate privy to it. It's a silly game.

    As much as I believe that Obama is horrible for this country, it will be a stain on the country to watch him be impeached, and resign. That means Biden is in charge. Oh no!!!!

    However, this total lying to the people has to stop!
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    No. Because nothing about it referred to her being a woman. It would have made just a much sense if it were John Kerry. As you yourself said, referring to Kwanzaa would not have made sense if made about a white guy. Or an asian or anything other than black. It is racial-specific.

    I see.
    Then if I had shown W. Bush sweeping Iraq under the carpet and said he was doing Weihnachten Cleanup that would have been racial-specific also.

    Something needs to be said here ... you have become the DP source for all things Benghazi.

    And seeing the comments from other posters it occurs to me that within DP exists a microcosm of the media treatment of the shameful affair.

    On the one hand we have a search for truth by Fox and some print & on-line sources (that would be you and some others here) and on the other we have the majority of the media (that would be the Obama die-hard supporters we see gasping for the air of deliverance despite all evidence to the contrary).

    Curious how that always seems to play out the same way.

    But acknowledging that showing Hillary & Barry (and even Kerry) sweeping Benghazi under the rug makes sense is a huge step forward.

    Good morning, Bubba.

    I believe most people just want to hear the truth about what happened!. There were too many early conflicting statements made on TV by administration officials that we later learned were not true. Unfortunately they kept repeating those stories even after they were admitted to be inaccurate. This is either ineptness, or a deliberate attempt to cover up mistakes that were made. People died who were pleading for help, and that does NOT sit well with most people! : I am not saying the inaction was deliberate, for whatever reason, but until we hear the truth, it does look that way!

    Re: Benghazi: State Department's ARB Panel Is Under Formal Investigation

    There's one problem with all of this "The ARB is being investigated!" thing - it is a routine look at an ARB report. The IG stated it would be looking at the ARB report BEFORE the hearings started.

    This is from Foreign Policy, Nov. 1, 2012
    State Department to review its own Benghazi review | The Cable

    The State Department Inspector General's office has drawn up plans to conduct several reviews of the State Department's handling of embassy security and the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, including a review of the State Department's own internal review.
    ...

    The State Department's acting Inspector General Harold Geisel wrote an Oct. 26 letter, obtained by The Cable, to Senate Homeland Security Committee heads Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Susan Collins (R-ME), outlining several reviews his office has already started and some they are about to start to determine if embassy security around the world is sufficient, being implemented properly, and if that was a factor in the attack that killed Amb. Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

    One of their tasks will be to keep tabs on the proceedings of the State Department's own review of the Benghazi attack, which is being conducted by an Accountability Review Board (ARB) led by former Under Secretary of State Thomas Pickering and including former Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen.
    Now the Raging Mustache, John Bolton, stated in an email to Jennifer Rubin, that “Zowie!, “I’ve never heard of anything like it!” He emphasized, “I’ve never heard of an IG investigating an ARB. I don’t think there have been that many ARB’s which is what makes it unusual.”. Why is that interesting? Oh maybe because there was an IG investigation of an ARB in 2004 when John Bolton was undersecretary of state for arms control and international security, working for Condoleeza Rice. Yet once again Bolton lies in an attack on the present Administration.

    I wonder if Congressman Stephen Lynch (D-MA) will be allowed to speak during the Issa hearing.
    Democratic Congressman Refuses To Let Republicans Ignore GOP Security Budget Cuts In New Benghazi Hearing | ThinkProgress

    In a heated exchange on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Lynch pointed out that Republicans voted against additional funding for embassy security when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton requested it:

    LYNCH: When Secretary Clinton and the State Department asked for additional funding for embassy security, [Republicans] all voted no. They all voted no.

    WALLACE: We’re getting a little bit off track now. I understand there’s an issue about security. It’s a little bit off the track. I want to stay on course here –

    LYNCH: No, this is the point. They’re complaining about a lack of security at the embassies after they voted against funding for security at the embassies. Is that not related?
    If you refuse to click the link to ThinkProgress because it is a "known radical leftist" site, you are missing out on a video clip from the FoxNews Wallace Show which verifies the printed words here.
