    It seems kind of fishy that the Ambassador would leave the relative security of the Embassy for a far less secure Consulate where the CIA was operating unless he was involved in what the CIA was doing.
    Well.....with these closing of Embassies and the concern being an Attack by Al Qaeda or their likes. I thought it was strange that we would close the embassy in Israel. As I am sure Israel will be on point themselves.

    Course any with common sense or was in the service would know about the basics and Classified Information over Operations. So if agents are sent out to pasture. They would be given their Retirement. Without having to ever say a word.

    Doesn't mean they are bought off. Also Could be that their lives are saved even more and they are out of the game, for good.

    As far as I know......there hasn't been any information to say if they have been moved to other operations. Other than what Hicks brought out with his testimony. Which involved higher ups.
    Exactly- no one knows what has happened to the 69 agents that were supposedly on the ground in Libya. She doesn't say ANY of that, just a early retirement and full pension hinging on their silence- as if these people who risk far more in a single day than most here ever have in their lives would NOT speak up if a serious wrong doing occurred.

    The fact is we may never know all that happened simply because national security is involved- NOT because a whole class of agents got retired to cover 'team Obama'. (and no oath of secrecy prevents pointing out wrong doing or talking to congress- they just can't Snowden.

    Maybe a little, but terrorist attacks in Israel are not unheard of.

    Wow!!! Am I shocked or what???

    Not as I thought (Obama born on Sunday)

    Turns out it's a Michelle-connection. Baby got back and al Qaeda is in a twist, since she's hot, creates sexual thought, and embassies must be attacked.

    Seems asking trumps assuming. Great to know what's actually going on. And thus, many thanks for the suggestion.

None others. So once again you assume. Which we know what goes with all your assuming. So other operations were more than likely running even after the attack. Problem with most radical left thinking.....is they forgot the warning signs that Hillary's Dept dismissed. Which was pointed out in her own independent investigation, with their findings. Well that's what you think.....good thing the majority of the country doesn't think like you do. Not to mention.....McCain was already interviewed several times. Stating he had seen Stevens a week before. Wherein Stevens brought his concerns directly to McCain. Which.....there goes your theory about Stevens walk around and how things were being perceived by him.
    Actually there are MANY reports on how Ambassador Stevens walked out among the Libyans, much to his paid security detail's angst. His RSO was quite nervous about security, the one who was not present in country at the time of the attack.

    I love how you now embrace the lame stream media on this. gospel to you now...

    And again the threats are constant deadlines come and go constantly. Operations run even in high risk environments. Threats are never 'dismissed' if there isn't confirmation from several sources it is difficult to pull the plug at every rumor, or shut down all embassies/consulates/missions in the area every time there is a rumor. That is handing the terrorists too many easy victories.

    A republican politician makes a claim on TV and it is gospel, Hillary or Obama's people say something and it's a total lie- you are very selective.

    And you are clueless on how many actual agents were anywhere near the Consulate... you really think 69 were in Benghazi??? they would have been tripping over each other.

    Now on what a majority thinks- once again I believe the radical right is fooling only itself...

    Oh, was there suppose to be some correct way for her to say what she did. Who said she had to say anything other than what she did. The as if part is how you say you are taking it.

    Course most on the extreme left likes to take things out of context when they try to do all that thinking for others.

    Yeah but nothing like a party.....they might have to check with Trump tho. As he might have bought their casinos.

    Funny I thought it was SOP for the radical right to pretend there was no other way to say something that doesn't smear someone's reputation and courage-

    How about national security can easily make it impossible to know every thing that happened for another 50 to 60 years and leave out the appearance of so many agents being bought off with early retirements and pensions when it is just as easy to keep them on the job and still sworn to secrecy.
