    What is sad to me is making a mockery of their deaths by caring more about political standing rather than actually getting real answers.

I know the trruth doesn't matter to you personally because it interferes with your fantasy land, but some of us might actually pay attention to facts.

    It's funny to see you trying and failing to semantically white wash the stand down order and then say that others don't care about the truth.

    I see, so hypocrisy is fine with you eh...As long as you are the one displaying? You want real answers about Bush, and Iraq, but are fine to let Obama treat our diplomats lives as if they are expendable, especially when they might interfere with election year narrative....Good God man.

    Steamroll a nation to get one guy, who hasn't attacked you, then let the religious extremists take over. Sir, I salute you.

    Wait a minute J-Mac...you have read my posts for a long time. I wasn't part of these boards during that phase of the Bush fiasco. I said the same damn thing back then. Stop making it into a three ring circus and get real answers. It happens all the time. We get a tragic event, or an unsanctioned war...what happens? We get political pandering and ridiculousness.

    I have maintained my disgust with both parties for a while now. I have been nothing but consistent in that area.

    I think they should concern themselves with getting the answers, and being diligent on that while keeping the circus acts to a minimum.

    We all want real answers. We should all demand those while at the same time tell those people asking the questions to hold blame until everything is out in the open. That is the best way we can honor those who were killed. Get all the answers, look at them for what they are, and then take action.

    I laid it out for you sir, and you chose to ignore the post, except for cherry picking one thought from it to attack...Have fun with that....I am done with you.

    You laid out your justification for the Iraq Invasion, and I commented on it. You can respond to my comment or pretend that it is an irrelevant attack. The choice is yours.

    Ok, I'll accept that...Sorry if I took you out of context, but unlike so many in here that are quick to judge, and attack on partisan lines, I served this country for 6 years. And I'll be damned if I let squishy libs get away with the historical revision that they so love to do....Their ideas of what is, and isn't in this world concerning threat to us results in death to innocent Americans, and they are just fine with that....I'm not.

    I too will wait and listen today to the hearings...

    We hold similar views in most areas Mac. Remember...I am a LIB.....ertarian.

    We must stay diligent. Wait for the answers to come out, which probably won't happen until near the end of Obama's term (like the Iraq thing happened near the end of Bush's term). The answers seem to conveniently come out around those times.
