    You keep trying to define down, to justify these murders, because it exposes your President for the low life he is and it exposes your ideology as corrupt.

    Now where was your President ?

    Imagine having the likes of Issa deciding when and were to put US troops in harms way.

    Civilians in the White House and the Pentagon shouldn't be making decisions that the military should be making.
    I believe you are correct, the military should be the ones make those decisions. Where does Gates say Panetta made those decisions?

    You should take a trip to the US consulate in Guadalajara Mexico. It's about as lightly protected as it can be from the outside. If all hell broke lose in Mexico tomorrow, good luck flying a plane overhead and getting US soldiers into that area of the city in time.

    Look , most " people " here trying to justify away our Govt's lack of action are extremely ignorant when it comes to our Military's capabilities.

    It's incredibly naive to think we couldn't have responded because it was " pandemonium".

    Spec Ops are trained for " pandemonium"
    So it's not made purely of concrete as you first said. But actually a dense concrete like substance. Does the missile have a guidance system as well? Face it, jet fighters,bombs and missiles were not the answer to this no matter how hard people try to beleave they are.

    Having served for 25 years in the EOD I have a little bit of knowledge on how the Military works in situations like this. The only way to have had any effect on this would have been to Helo a lot of Spec Ops in. That has it's own problems and needs onsite intell.

    I don't think anyone is trying to justify the lack of action. Just trying to look at a different angle then the "just kill everyone" crowd. To call them ignorant just because they don't think the same as you is a bit dishonest.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    It sounds like the GOP wants to politicize military and intelligence decisions, just like the good old days of Bush and yellow cake.

    This is the latest talking point from dems, the GOP is trying politicize the situation, not the dems by lying about the decisions they did make.

    Is it your claim that the military wanted to blunder in Benghazi on short notice, but Hillary didn't let them?

    You conservatives and your wild accusations. Stick with yellow cake.
