    It's too painful for you to consider malfeasance on Obama and Hillary's part, even though it's obvious.

    But you can't even be objective, because you you weigh political priority over the lives of 4 Americans and the Cover-up thats keeping their families from learning the truth.

    Republicans need to get back to the economy and fixing our debt. Those American deaths are tragic, but if this three ring circus is all we're going to get then we're disgracing their deaths and duty to our country.
    At this point I would point out that 44 budgets have been sent from the republican controlled House over to the Democrat controlled Senate never to be seen or heard from again. But, that's a topic for another thread.
    You must be pretty desperate if you want to talk about the economy over the Benghazi coverup.

    The cover up of....what exactly?

    Usually, you figure out what was actually covered up before you determine there was a cover up, no?
    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.

    Re: There was a stand down order given in Benghzi

    So here's my problem with the whole Benghazi meme:

    There have been dozens of different accusations made against the Administration since the moment this event was happening in real time.

    The only accusations with any shred of truth are how the event was characterized.

    Nothing anyone has accused the administration of indicates that any positive action would have had any likelihood of saving lives.

    Monday morning quarterbacking is all fine and good, and it always possible to say that if different decisions were made a different outcome would have transpired. But if one is looking to assign actual culpability, malfeasance, or negligence, one would have to PROVE that not only were standard decision protocols not followed, but that the failure to follow them resulted in these deaths.

    Too much of this meme is based on hatred of Obama and/or a desire to see a powerful political opponent crushed.

    America does not want it's President to be guilty of causing American deaths, but Americans will accept evidence if he is.

    The problem is that this meme is long on accusations but VERY short on any actual evidence that the administration did anything so wrong as to create culpability. Anything, and everything, less than that is just second guessing and political attacks.

    These are very serious accusations that no American should WANT to be true much less be pushing them without evidence.

    I know it "feels" right to people that hate Obama and they would be happy to find him guilty on general principal, but I would argue that this kind of nonsense hurts America more than it hurts Obama and people that are engaging in this witch hunt would wreck the country over political attacks. And the same people have done it before in the ten year witch hunt surrounding White Water, a land deal in which the Clinton's were ultimately the victims of fraud.
    why was the deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism "locked out" of the emergency response, the decision making process, and the post attack review?

    Three more officials to testify about Benghazi attacks - CBS News

    why did the admin fail to convene its "top interagency counterterrorism resource," the csg, counterterrorism security group?

    why was "the response process isolated at the most senior levels of the executive branch?"

    why did "nsc spokesman tommy vietor [tell] cbs the csg was not needed?"

    why do "counter terrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by cbs express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy but were never called upon to help?"

    why was the acting mission chief for libya, certainly eager to talk, never interviewed by arb?

    why wasn't a plane sent from souba, just an hour away, especially after gregory hicks, who took over for mr stevens when the ambassador died, begged for one?

    Special ops halted from responding to Benghazi attacks, U.S. diplomat says - The Washington Post

    why does mr hicks testify that a "fast flyer" might have made all the difference?

    why did state press spokesperson victoria nuland, in order to "satisfy my building's leaders," insist on scrubbing the cia's advisory of pertinent truth?

    why was the nyt so easily able to interview abu ahmed khattala, ansar al sharia militia man and, according to the gray lady, "suspected mastermind," right out in the open in that crowded downtown luxury hotel, sipping that famous frappe---in october?

    where was the fbi?

    why are several dozen survivors of benghazi still being hidden from the american people?

    Six months later, where are the Benghazi survivors? - CBS News

    how many of them did arb talk to?

    why did arb fail to question hrc, secretary of state?

    would she ask them, what difference does it make?

    exactly where was mrs clinton, all day and all nite, 9-11-12, and what was she doing?

    why are so many foggy bottom professionals, according to cbs, coming forward to claim that they have been "marginalized, intimidated and/or subjected to threats of retaliation?"

    why did obama go to bed?

    ranking member of house intel, dutch ruppersberger from dark blue baltimore, the pelosi caucus' point man on all things intel, says: let's investigate, let's find out

    I heard months ago that the seals were told not to defend, but I believe they tried anyway.

    With that being said, how is the OP breaking news? Not to mention those outraged keep changing their reasons why.

    When the rightwing noise machine springs into action and generates a conspiracy theory, it's a sight to behold.

    Too bad for them this is like the bogus Fast and Furious kerfluffle. Nobody but Fox News weirdos care.
