    But!! How very interesting that the article is dated May 13, 2013. Weird.
    That's why it's breaking news. So breaking, it's in the future!

    It's from the WEEKLY Standard. Today's the 5th, so it's more than a wee

    Regardless, this is mostly smoke and very little fire. The question is did he KNOW an attack was going to happen with enough time to do something about it. If so, what is that thing and should it be done? Maybe he could have dropped a whole invasion force on Libya, but was that what should have been done?

    Yeah he knew.....

    AQAP was the first al Qaeda affiliate to comment on the Benghazi attack. On September 14 it released a statement arguing the attack was revenge for the death of Abu Yahya al-Libi, a senior al Qaeda operative, in Pakistan in June 2012. It did not claim responsibility for the attack.

    On September 10 -- at least 18 hours before the attack -- al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, in a video timed for the anniversary of 9/11, called for attacks on Americans in Libya to avenge the death of al-Libi.....snip~

    Sources: 3 al Qaeda operatives took part in Benghazi attack - CNN.com


    Maybe.....just maybe he should have took AQ seriously instead of getting all caught up into himself.....huh?

    You see... you folks have a problem. They're called 911 and Iraq and for the latter... your disgusting behavior during that time when our men and women were on the field fighting terrorists.

    The question is did he KNOW an attack was going to happen with enough time to do something about it.
    Exhibit 1: CONNECT-THE-DOTS.
    The folks in Benghazi were begging for assistance, and the administration gutted their defense capabilities. You obviously missed or choose to ignore the testimony of the military officer stating he expected an attack and was sickened by being told that he and his men were to leave that post. You folks screamed CONNECT-THE-DOTS after 911.

    Remember?

    Why didn't the Obama administration heed the cries for their safety long before the attack? They didn't have to CONNECT some obscure dots... they simply had to LISTEN to the folks on the ground and understand they were in the middle of a terror hotbed.

    Exhibit 2: UPARMOR
    Rumsfeld was left with a gutted military after years of neglect by Clinton. You Libs complained when Rummy said you go to war with the military you have... and whined about the vehicles not being uparmored.

    Remember?

    Obama had all the capabilities to assist these Americans in Benghazi. He failed to do so.

    If so, what is that thing and should it be done? Maybe he could have dropped a whole invasion force on Libya, but was that what should have been done?
    This is intellectually bankrupt. It's a sad state of mind when you have to pull this crap to hold onto a political position. But hey... this is the party of Clinton.

    The smoke and fire... that's Obama and his crew of liars and deceivers trying to find a way out of the larger than Watergate corner they've painted themselves into.

    Nobody died during Watergate.

    My disgusting behavior? Maybe you should explain MY disgusting behavior to me.

    Now that you're done with the obligatory uber-partisan verbal diarrhea, do you have anything useful to say? (Why do I even ask, you NEVER do.)

    Go ahead. Defend Watergate. Defend that POS Spiro Agnew until your last breath. You can't deal with the fact that Republicans did a bad thing. AS I recall, this "gutted military" performed relatively well in Iraq, until it became clear that nobody in the Bush administration planned for Iraqis to shoot back. Maybe if somebody had made a PLAN for after the fall of Saddam it would have gone better. But that's because of Clinton

    You're a Democrat. D's fell into line except one. The guy's name is Lieberman. His party tried to eject him, and used the heavyweights in an attempt.
    There is no record for you here during that time, but you're a Lib... and the Libs were the definition of disgusting. Treasonous.

    You see... I'm a principled former Commi Lib turned Conservative. I don't defend corruption, and I don't defend Republicans behaving like Democrats. I lambasted Bush for his spending. I hated it.

    Want to try again?

    You obviously forget the attack on Rummy for the vehicles not being uparmored... and... please... go do some research about Clinton and the military.

    As for plans... the military has all manner of plans. These plans are created irrespective of who is President. We might have been, and Iraqi's might have been better off had Clinton acted instead of letting 500,000 children and 500,000 adults die due to Saddam and UN sanctions. Maddie Albright claimed this was 'worth the cost'... a cost that left them at the hands of a brutal dictator.

    Have you read Clausewitz's On War? Plans change on first contact with the enemy. It's the nature of war. Or as the Hebrews said long, long ago... Man plans, God Laughs.

    I'm not a Democrat for one. You have no record of anything I did, so all you have is your diseased ramblings.

    So you can take it back, or admit that you are a lying sack of ****.

    Correct, we arrested the guy who made the stupid video didn't we? What else could you expect from the President and Secretary of State to do.

    After all we dodged the issue and won an election. Does anything else matter!
