    You can keep repeating this non-sequitur for as long as you like, it does not represent the reality in Benghazi.

    Again Jack, you are ignoring facts. State doesn't have authority over CIA ops.

    The Chief of Mission, as the President's representative, has authority over all executive branch personnel.

    Um, the CoM is a State dept position, this was not a State Dept op, this was a CIA op, the CIA is independent of State.

    You just don't know this situation, this turf....sorry.

    Beyond your ability to link to articles that have nothing to do with my quote, what do you imagine this shows?

    Unfortunately for the Chief of Mission in this case, he and others waited in vain for help that never arrived, and paid with their lives. Since he represents the President, and not the Department of State, it seems that the WH is the one who should have quickly responded. Not that I have any great love for Hillary, but why is the State Department being blamed for this? Is there some authority overlap that I'm not grasping here?

    Exactly,
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    By an even larger margin, 59 percent to 37 percent, respondents said that Congress is making the right moves on the administration's actions on the Benghazi terror attack.
    Looks like Obama is still holding on to most of his Party but he's lost the Independents & Republicans.
