    In a Committee on Government Oversight, Charlene Lamb ( the person who denied increased Security ) was asked " Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you NOT to increase the number of people in their security force " ?

    Charlene Lamb : " No sir ''
    So stop pretending that anything could have been done to stop the attack while it was progress. The special forces in tripoli were not equipped for the task. The special forces in Europe would have arrived 12 hours after the attack ended.

    Nothing more, and nothing less.
    The Reports say there was no cover up. There was evidence of screw ups on the part of the state department, but no evidence of cover ups.

    If they didn't want boots on the ground why did they vote to authorize the war?

    Sure they're going to say they regret it NOW. They're doing so for the exact same reason that they voted for it to begin with. It's called pandering to public opinion. During the run-up to the war the American public overwhelmingly supported it. Voting no would have risked re-election, so those Democrats who were potentially vulnerable voted yes.

    Now that history has shown that there were no WMDs and popular support for the war has evaporated, those same Democrats are now going public with their "regrets". They were gutless when they voted for the war just as they are gutless now in expressing their regret.

    I guess history really does repeat itself...

    It takes more courage to admit a mistake.

    I see no courage in walking back the decision to go to war at this point. It's pandering, plain and simple.

    In the case of useless wars like Iraq, let's hope that doesn't repeat. McCain wants us in Syria now. Is that wise? Why are Republicans so quick to send Americans to their deaths without a plan to win? Do they hate our troops that much?

    That's funny. The resolution didn't read war or no war. It encouraged use of diplomatic means.

    The Repubs knew they couldn't get a war resolution through, so they didn't. That way, they could pretend they had big swinging dicks when the war was over in a week, but his behind the concept that the war was Bushs fault.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I think the Democrats still hold the record for sending our troops to war without a plan to win. Vietnam anyone?

    None the less, we shouldn't be going into Syria or anyplace else but if that decision is made it will be made by Democrats. That is a fact.
