"It's always reassuring to find you've made the right enemies." -- William J. Donovan
here is an example
IRS has rigid rules about any IRS employee disclosing individual/entity information supplied to the IRS
yet time and again the republican committee members would ask miller about specific case scenarios
agency regulations - as he repeatedly shared with them - would not permit him to respond to those case specific questions
and the republicans would continue to ask case specific information
as i would hear them repeatedly make this same mistake i would wonder, who the hell elected these idiots
the white house's newest defense, this morning:who the hell elected these idiots
Officials on Benghazi: We're the idiots - CBS News
back to the irs, why can't the idiot in charge state unequivocally he did not know what was going on for 2 years at his internal revenue?Obama administration officials who were in key positions on Sept. 11, 2012, acknowledge that a range of mistakes were made the night of the attacks on the U.S. missions in Benghazi, and in messaging to Congress and the public in the aftermath.
The officials spoke to CBS News in a series of interviews and communications under the condition of anonymity so that they could be more frank in their assessments. They do not all agree on the list of mistakes and it's important to note that they universally claim that any errors or missteps did not cost lives and reflect "incompetence rather than malice or cover up." Nonetheless, in the eight months since the attacks, this is the most sweeping and detailed discussion by key players of what might have been done differently.
"We're portrayed by Republicans as either being lying or idiots," said one Obama administration official who was part of the Benghazi response. "It's actually closer to us being idiots."

too case specific?

He's not just a Civil Servant. He is in a top executive position, or was. He resigned over this. He needs jail time also in my view. What he allowed to happen, I'm pretty sure goes beyond incompetence. Nobody makes it that high up in the ranks being as incompetent as he displayed himself over the ordeal.
