    There have been eight inquiries into this. This is the 9th. What is different about this hearing then the 8 previous ones?

    Who are "you guys?" My best guess is they are people unwilling to take a partisan side to push a political point. Thnak you for thinking I am one of them.

    Your Constructed narratives aside, we NOW have a President who is directly involved in a cover up for polilitical reasons.
    Link please.

    In a cover up that involves 4 dead Americans.
    Any dead American is a bad thing, but I betcha the numbers from Iraq were much much higher. What are we at now... 4000?

    Derailing is not trolling. Like I said before, I wanted to inject some perspective here... nothing more.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Thats pathetic.

    Our embassy had been attacked prior to the 9/11 terrorist attack, with holes blown in the Embassy Compound walls.

    Other Western Nations had removed their people because of terrorist attacks on their embassy personel.

    And that was the best we had to offer by way of Special Ops or ANY back-up ? After the Ambassador Stevens asked MULTIPLE times for extra security ?

    The United States, the strongest Military in the world could only send in two teams with hand guns ? With one being told to STAND DOWN ?

    What kind of desperately inept, idiotic people did you people elect ??

    Obama and Hillary left that place wide open. Were directly responsible for the deaths of Stevens and the 3 others and when the inevitable happened , they had some WH staffer or State Dept Staffer dig up some video that NO ONE had ever seen ( Until a Complicit News Media Publicized it ) so they could build the Corrupt Narrative. The new protest spreading accross the Islamic world was to their advantage as it strengthened the lie,.......that it was all because of a video.

    Do you get it now ? Why its really important to elect someone who's QUALIFIED ?

    If the accusations have any merits, then people should be outraged. The idea that there shouldn't be, because of your views on the Iraq fiasco (which are partisan at best) is rather moronic

On the ground in Benghazi an evacuation didn't even begin until 6:05am, meaning the order to stand down came while there were still people under attack in the annex.

    What We need to know is what was the President doing to try and secure a flight to Benghazi, a why he didn't simply order the rescue mission proceed without authorization. First shots were fired 7 hours before the order to stand down, and the second assault was under way when the order was given. There is no viable excuse for this delay when it is clear from testimony that, contrary to the Administration's testimony, there were indeed military assets within 45 minutes of Benghazi that were never used.

    The military doesn't operate on a train schedule. Just because the Libyan government dragged it's ass for 7 hours while our consulate was under attack didn't mean we needed to. Obama certainly didn't show any qualms about military action without authorization in Pakistan... so why the hell did he drag his feet for 7 hours during the Benghazi attack?
    I have no idea why the order to stand down was given, however isn't true the ambassador and the three were already dead by that time?

    If this is true, then Republicans are barking up the wrong tree. I think this is all much ado about nothing, anyway. The most that is going to come out of these hearings is that it is probably going to be shown that the administration doctored the talking points as an election year stunt and everyone pretty much knows that already.

    And I have pointed out that they are only doing it because there's a Democrat in office. If say, McCain would have won in 2008, and the same happened, I have little doubt that many here and Fox News would be dead silent about it.

    As for my views on Iraq, they are not based on partisanship. They are based-on common sense, facts and reality.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
