    CNN ran a documentary Sunday night Benghazi on that I recorded and haven't seen all of it yet. From what I saw 3 different rescue operations were deployed but the nearest one was in Italy and by the time they got there it was too late. Again, I haven't seen all of it but from what I did see the problem wasn't refusing to respond but not having a military presence close enough when it was needed. If I recall (or it might have just been my reasoning as it was late and I'd just gotten home from a road trip), the administration might have believed having a big military presence in the area would create image problems with the Libyans in a culture where a strong visible US military presence builds resentment as it makes us look imperialist in their eyes and makes our troops targets. There was a small protection force in Tripoli over 600 miles away but it was thought that Tripoli was where the real threat to security was and thinking whatever they were guarding there needed to not be left vulnerable never imaging Benghazi would happen and not contingency plans or training in rapid response outside of their mission in Tripoli.

    Add the political dynamic, blame game politics and an assumption that all forces in the US military have the same training and contingency planning as US Navy Seals or other Special Forces and here we are.

    Katsung? Hello, katsung.

    I mean, I tried with you til I realized you didn't even know the four points (that you argued) that I pointed out. What more is there to do? How can you talk about NASA to someone that doesn't think the moon landing occurred? You don't. You laugh at them, you mock them, you have fun at their expense. But you don't waste time with them.

    This is Ad hominem circumstantial. Yet another logical fallacy

    And yes, my signature is from 1984.

    NONE OF THAT IS TRUE

    That's conspiracy theory, we're talking about real life. Peter Bergen and Steve Coll have written tremendous books (plural, for both) about bin Laden, I suggest you read them.
    Well.....get back to me when you read those CIA docs that have been unclassified. As well as from those that were involved.

    Lets see.....on one hand. The major players in the game all say he was. Then the MSMedia breaks the story along with MSNBC. Then CNN jumps on the bandwagon. Most others all across the World. Including Bin Laden's own Family members.

    But Bergen and Coll say otherwise. Along with one of Osama's Brothers.

    Looks Like I will be sticking with those that have the facts down.

    You didn't try, your posts have been series of emotional tantrum and personal attack. You post a graph that doesn't show wealth disparity and try to claim it show wealth disparity. You overlook any point made just so you can post some lol message and insult people.

    Try addressing the issue instead of the person. Grow up and learn how to make proper argument.

    Deflection and emotional outburst. This has nothing to do with what was presented. You have offered no points against what was listed and linked, nothing to support your claims. You have engaged in nothing but personal attack and tantrum.
