    As for the new shut-downs, Obama just can't win. When he doesn't do anything he gets grilled. When he does something he gets grilled. Seems sensible.
    It's tea party lunacy at work. Once Obamaphobia sets in, reason goes out the window.

    Parallels: A mission was attacked after warnings, Americans were killed after security requests were denied, and a diplomat went on TV to explain it all — our current U.N. ambassador, after embassy bombings in 1998.

    'What troubles me so much is the Benghazi attack in many ways echoes the attacks on both embassies in 1998, when Susan Rice was head of the African region for our State Department," Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said Wednesday after two hours with our U.N. ambassador. "In both cases, the ambassador begged for additional security."

    In the spring of 1998, Prudence Bushnell, the U.S. ambassador to Kenya, sent an emotional letter to Secretary of State Madeleine Albright begging for a more secure embassy in the face of mounting terrorist threats and a warning that she was the target of an assassination plot.

    The State Department had repeatedly denied her request, citing a lack of money. But that kind of response, she wrote Albright, was "endangering the lives of embassy personnel."

    A matter of months later, on Aug. 7, 1998, the American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya were simultaneously attacked with car bombs. In Kenya, 12 American diplomats and more than 200 Africans were killed.

    [B]Which didn't count those killed in Tanzania either[/B]. Course you didn't think Georgie Boy was even close to the Repeated failures of the Democrats with deaths and injured with Embassies. Which doesn't even count that screw up in Somalia. Which happened under Bilbo's keen eyes.

    Notice the same excuses by the Democrats. Especially about that part about after they tightened up security and that part on.....Oh it will never happen again.
    Believe me, i'm never condoning the deaths of Americans, I just like to point out that while Obama has made mistakes Bush did too. And people need to remember that.

    It is overly self-referential to call these mistakes, whether under GWB or BHO. The other guy has a plan and capabilities too. Sometimes he wins.

    Well remind us all what Hillary said about securing all the warehouses? Also remind us who picked the compound Ambassador Stevens died in? (hint he did) testimony before congress 23 jan 2013.

    Face it, all you are doing to trying anything and everything to stir the partisan muck.... and FYI I posted polls to show more Americans think this is political crap.

    You posted......
    No See that's where your cornfuzzlement sets in. I never come wimpy with anything, and especially never with the likes with one such as yourself. Not anywheres nor ever at anytime. Nowhere ever. You can be quite assured of that.

    You didn't show polls that people all think like you do. So wrong again there. But only you would think the majority of the population thinks like you. No one else does.

    That's all she said they were to secure all of Gadhafi's warehouses. That's what she testified to. Again Plural. That they were specifically going after those Man-Pads. So no you cant change up what she testified too.

    No what you need to face is.....that you don't have clue as to what you are talking about when you try to do all that thinking for others. As well as that, despite your laments for Obama and the Democratic Underground. That you wont be able to prevent others from talking about what Team Obama and the left doesn't want to hear.

    WTF is 'going rogue'? you mean start their own agency? or change sides, play both sides.... call wikileaks?

    Since the Administration, FBI and CIA have all confirmed the agents can go to Congress at any time what going rogue do you mean?

    Since some Republican congressmen claim to know agents who were willing to talk before the great pay-off why don't they just go ahead and issue the subpoenas???

    If you think the early retirement is a reward what is this going rogue crap?

    So basically on a rumor of early retirement- even as the right wing bloggers claim the Benghazi crew is being subjected to monthly polygraphs- you claim to both think the agents are being rewarded AND you don't know what's being done???
    Okay, bear with me, two-step. When I posted about an early retirement pay-off, that was my thought and my thought alone. I mean, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that if a Federal agency spending OPM wants to "make everybody happy," there are ways to do that. If you got the impression that I was claiming that was fact? My bad. I wasn't. It's my opinion.

    I never read anything about "certain Congressmen" claiming they were paid off. It's just my logical brain extrapolating the end game.

    My thought about "going rogue" means they've decided they've had enough. They're going to come forward. Something their oath tells them they can never do. Ever.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Sorry Charlie you do the passive aggressive wimp thing... I never said all. You are constantly changing what I say to suit your failed argument. The polls show a majority think the benghazi crap is politically motivated.

    You have to show where the SoS was privy to the true mission of the CIA operatives in country. You'll also have to prove the story she gave wasn't the official cover story to in the interest of national security.

    I have read Hillary's testimony before Congress- where does she say the 'they' were there to secure the warehouses?

    You source nothing, just prattle on.

    It is not possible that the SoS would not know. That is certain.

    supposed to be in Jordan next Tuesday, really hope this is all hype from US intelligence
