    That is not entirely true, according to the UN final report it was spelled out. Not that they had solid proof of active programs, but that they couldn't rule it out either. You should be honest.



    Man, you arrogant libs really do think if you repeat the lie often enough, that it magically becomes truth don't you?



    No, I really don't Joe, but why stop lying now?



    man you are full of yourself...Hint: you're not that clever.
    I'm not trying to be clever. Just honest and on point. You're the one playing, and not staying on point. You're the one throwing out strawmen and silliness, I assume because you have nothing of substance.

    And no, there was nothing that backed Bush's claims. Nothing. Not from the UN. Not from us. You can't change the facts.

    Actually that explanation came from Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice.

    It's ironic that in order to defend Obama his supporters are required to paint him as an idiot.

    True. He doesn't know much about anything his administration does. According to Obama in his recent OReilly interview, just a few boneheads ruined entire agencies and a significant piece of foreign policy. Who knows how bad it could've been if a few more boneheads were around? So Obama has done us a favor by limiting the number of boneheads in his administration to a select few. Thanks, Obama.

    yes. That seems to play better for political deflection. Our society (USA) prefers a "bonehead" administration to an untruthful governance.

    Dissembling is fine, as long as it isn't a direct lie. Incompetence is assumed, no one gets upset that both Congress, and POTUS are essentially dysfunctional.

    The implication is that had Obama known some of these "unknown" things, things would be different. Nothing has surfaced to indicate that things would indeed be any different than they were, though. The administration was aware that security was non-existent at Benghazi. The administration was aware of the IRS targeting. The administration was aware that they'd lost track of the weapons in Fast and Furious. There's a long list. To indicate that Obama would've done things differently flies in the face of the fact that he didn't do anything differently. If there are boneheads involved, they would include Clinton, Holder, Obama's own WH counsel, Sebellius and so on. Hardly low level people reporting to the janitor.

    It seems to have mattered to many, especially the victims and their families.

    You have bought into Hillary Clinton's line it seems. All you good little leftists deserve a pat on the head.

    Re: Senate report: Attacks in Benghazi could have been prevented

    I don't have a lot to say about the report.

    I am curious about the claim that the U.S. destroyed Libya based upon lies or something. Specifically it seems as if the argument is being made that Obama is responsible for Libya.

    Is that the case?

    And I guess he is an idiot because he likely has no idea how his attempts to defend his administration add up to a fantastic argument against big government anything.
