    And no, Obama, factually, did not make any decision to sacrifice anyone. That is the over the top exaggeration too common in these discussions.
    He sure didn't make any decision to save them now did he?....So, It is simple, he sacrificed them.

    Again, an exaggeration, wild partisan hyperbole.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

The point is that if Obama is not responsible, and Wiseone seems to be making that point in post #4, then who in the hell is? I want a name of the Cabinet level person who made the policy decision regarding Benghazi because they are they only ones with the power to do that beside the president himself. So if it's not Obama...The effort has been to spread the responsibility so thin and so far as to not hold anyone accountable for anything, and claim is was a systemic failure. That's unacceptable.
    Hillary Clinton claimed responsibility in order, it seems, to take some sort of high road. But neither she nor anyone else in the Obama Administration apparently feels that there should be any consequences of not responding to the warnings, not going to the aid of those under attack, and then trying to cover it up with some phoney story about a Youtube video.

    That people would actually buy into this nonsense strongly suggests that both Clinton and Obama understand how foolishly naive their supporters must be.

    All sadly true. Blame without consequences is not blame at all now. It's a badge of honor.

    Shape-shifting blameless unaccountable ghosts at Foggy Bottom.

    Feinstein even came out yestersay and specifically defended Hillary, who wasn't even mentioned..

    (asides from the attack was caused by the video, which is patently false - known in the first few minutes it WAS a terror attack)
    The new senate report also claims that bears indeed do **** in the woods.

    Your entire premise that the president asked for a vote from congress to allow HIM to make all the decisions is absurd. If you think thats what happened crack open a book and GET reading.

    Interpretations are not equal to facts. Sorry.
