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!
    I lean toward the "notion" that motivation #1 was to get Obama past the election so there was an eagerness to repeat the storyline that State & the WH created to minimize responsibility for what happened.
    And now we still see residue of that eagerness in order to protect Obama & keep Hillary viable.

    This story has already exceeded its allotted 15 minutes. Isn't there a section called Conspiracy Theories where persons of such proclivities can exhaust themselves debating such nonsense?

    That all said, I for one, appreciate the frustration on Con brethren must feel dealing with the most scandal free administration since Bush I or Carter. They are forced to create these things just to entertain themselves. You spend enough time in the most sincere pumpkin patch and you are bound to see the Great Pumpkin eventually (if you don't freeze to death first).
    I see your in favor of coverups, incompetence, ignorance, and just plain don't give a **** about our embassy being destroyed and 4 of our people being slaughtered. That would be Obama.

    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.
    Well I am not the only one here.....the Prof has been up on this as well. Plus there are others.

    I would look up the threads on Benghazi.....I had pics of the Embassy the compound. The route they took. Also check out those on the 23 Muslim Countries that rose up.

    Moreover, all acts like it hard to pin down Obama and what he was doing during the Election and around Sept. Especially after the polls started reporting him being down. We knew where he was on the 10th. Despite his Team taking down the schedule for that day. We know what time the attack took place. Plus that AQ had released a statement for 911....18hrs prior to the attack.

    We also know that Obama was not talking about Libya or Benghazi until after his Debate with Romney and after the attack. So I think it is important to get those speeches from the prior half day from the attack. Play them.....and let Obama's own words and actions. Plus that **** eating grin when he thought he was coming off cool with the cuff. Show exactly where his mindset was at the time.

    Which again.....IMO and my assessment. Was not on any of his Foreign Policy. But that of Smashing on Romney, Fundraising and partying. Leading to the Bottomline.....he dropped the ball on the Anniversary of 911, and let down not only those who Died. But that of the Entire Country. Lets not ever forget how his Re-election was more important to him than anything else other than his family.

    Now all he is doing is the double dribble.....and the crossover and carry. 1 Step forward 2 steps back!

    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.
    1) If Lynch is on the committee he can speak at the hearing.
    2) Wallace tried to get Lynch to stick to the topic which was the coverup.
    3) Chaffetz attempted to respond to what Lynch said but was cut off by Wallace before he finished - didn't you see that when it happened this morning?

    Good morning, Somerville.

    Exactly! It appears there are plenty of explanations to be made here, from both sides of the aisle. Let's just hear the truth! If Ambassadors and Seals aren't safe, where does that leave the rest of us?

    4 people slaughtered? Please save us the melodrama and step back to reality. These things happen, particularly in troubled spots of the world. We have had 7 attacks on our embassies resulting in deaths of diplomats. Can you name any of them?

    Slaughter is what is happening daily with our drone strikes and immoral occupations of foreign countries. Slaughter what continues to happen in schools in Connecticut, theatres in Colorado and universities in Virginia, but we do nothing about it; it what is happening in the Sequester that has cut essential social programs such as cancer assistance funds and meals on wheels; it is what will happen if people think they can roll back the social safety net with budget cuts. These thinks have and will l lead to far more deaths than will ever happen from these embassy (in the case of Benghazi, consulate as it was not an embassy) incursions. Our crew in Benghazi new the risks and accepted them.

    Sorry, but the unconscionable actions are those on the right that think they see blood in the water here and chose to make a mockery out of the noble actions of our diplomats and their paid body guards by sensationalizing the story. This is 95% political. Most of those that feign outrage are doing so only to make their political points. They don't really care any more about the 4 people that die in Benghazi than they do about the homeless man on the corner of Broadway and Main.

    I know people think there is some type of substance; but there isn't. People keep looking for scandal in the Obama administration, but what they come up with is laughable.

    If you want real scandal, go after the administration for wonton murder of our own citizens and innocent bystanders in foreign countries with these drone strikes.

    Slaughter is what is happened with our
    drone strikes and immoral wars
    . Multiple times the
    number of deaths will result from cutting the Sequester
    than will ever happen from these types of incidents. Our crew in Benghazi new the risks and accepted them.

    Sorry, but the
    unconscionable actions are those on the right

    If you want real scandal, go after the administration for
    wonton murder
    of our own citizens and innocent bystanders in foreign countries
    with these drone strikes
    .
    I see what you did there ... clever ... you asked for no melodrama and then by way of example you loaded up your comment with melodramatic bon mots.

    That may be true. As Pero has repeatedly posted, Party has become more important than America's well being. That has got to stop, because we are all in this together, and we do not need to be divided! Not now, when the entire world has gotten more dangerous!
