    How does it prove there were WMDs? It just looks like a bunch of idiots making rash decisions on misinformation. Even Hillary voted to invade. It was bipartisan, but it was wrong and it was a mistake.

    Why are you trolling through a thread on benghazzi pushing the " Bush lied Perople died " Democrat nonsense ?

    This thread is about how disgusting our current administration is, not about empty untrue Democrat rhetoric.

    IN CONTEXT those quotes STILL mean democrats thought he had WMD way before Bush went into Iraq.

    Care to add anything about Benghazzi ? Or are you going to troll some more posting irrelevent nonsense ?
    Because only demanding the truth on one of these events is hackish. Wanting answers on both means you actually have principles.

    Re: There was a stand down order given in Benghzi

    Is FauxNews still trying to push this
    the op was: CBS: U.S. Special Forces told "you can't go" to Benghazi during attacks

    we all know obama's entire foreign policy, especially the closer you get to the t-word, or the j-word, or the i-word, must perforce assume full ostrich profile

    but if you can't tell the difference between bob schieffer and chris son-of-60-minutes-mike wallace...

    well, you must really have your head buried

    We start with a story that just won't go away.

    Today, there is new information raising questions about whether there was a coverup by the State Department to deflect criticism that it had ignored requests for more security for its people in Libya.

    Surprisingly, this will be the first time anyone has heard publicly from Hicks and as you can see his story is totally at variance with what some American officials were saying in public on this broadcast five days after the attack.

    Yeah Prof.....I know how ya feel when they keep crying about Fox. Although unlike you. I just aint going to give them all the links a head of time. They wont read them anyways. I rather just pop in and show them then what they had missed out of the basics, while they are pontificating at the time.

    Usually, you figure out what was actually covered up before you determine there was a cover up, no?
    Wow, some one has been purposely ignoring the changing of the state department talking points memo.

    Look, we realize you guys don't find anything wrong with a President and his Secretary of State pushing a false Narrative, lying to the Families of the victims because a election is right around the Corner.

    But Conservatives and anyone who had any semblance of integriry has a problem with their President lying to their faces.

    It doesn't prove there were WMD's. What it does prove is that the following Democrats thought they did: President Clinton; Madeline Albright; Clinton's National Security Advisor Sandy Berger; Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry and others in a letter to the President; Nancy Pelosi (bolded because you seem to think her hands are clean); Al Gore . . . hell, I could go on and on.

    It's obvious you didn't even read them, for God's sake. Those who blame Bush and say he was fighting his daddy's war...that it was all about oil...are full of baloney.

    Maybe they were ordered not to deploy because they would have met certain death.
    Spec Ops deployed without their combat gear? What are you kidding me, something doesn't sound right about that.
