    I didn't claim you did, that's why I asked. Thank you for clarifying that.

    Stand alone, that is a stunning statement.

    It certainly seems so sometimes. The problem as I see it, if that the misuse of such entities, is a constant tmeptation to he political classes, and one they ca surrender to incrementally. So each office holder in his term can say "I just changed thins a little, in the interest of safety, security."

    If they want to search your home it probably means you're on the potential suspect list. Suppose they find a hair tie in your bathroom that sort-of matches a description of what the missing child was wearing. Now you're going to spend the next three hours explaining where you got it, where you were on the night in question, who else saw you there, etc. And if they have just one witness who mistook someone else for you and puts you somewhere other than where you said you were, then you're taking a ride in handcuffs and hoping you can find a lawyer who is good at defending he said/she said cases.

    Your rights are to protect you from being railroaded and falsely accused like this. They are not intended to protect your criminal activity, even though sometimes that's the effect.

    What would happen if Obama let the embacies stay open and there was another attack that Americans die from? The right would have a field day. We can't beef up EVERY SINGLE one of them, so yes I think closing them was an acceptable solution. Would you rather Americans died?
    Ignoring Benghazi was about not providing proper security and then not reacting when the ambassador came under attack, it was not about running with your tail between your legs like we just did all over the Arab world.

    So please clarify your statement, you think we should be MORE involved then? Boy it's hard to keep up what you guys on the right want. First you don't want to get involved, then you do, then you don't. It's amazing how it always seems to fall on who is president and whether he is a Republican too.

    More involved? Well, rather than running around making excuses for our enemies, and covering up our inability to thwart their murderous attacks against innocents, yes. Not everything includes injecting military force you know.

    I'm of split mind on this one..... While I have no doubt that the searches go beyond Constitutional limitations at times, I do believe that we need to go to much greater lengths to secure all of our mass ransit services (air, rail, bus). Despite the fact that I am a legal CCW holder, I am restrained from exercising my Constitutional rights on these forms of transportation, yet the government does little to nothing to ensure my safety after having disarmed me in this locations and while on these conveyances.
