    Senate report: Attacks in Benghazi could have been prevented

    The bipartisan report laid out more than a dozen findings regarding the assaults on a diplomatic compound and a CIA annex in the city. It said the State Department failed to increase security at its mission despite warnings, and blamed intelligence agencies for not sharing information about the existence of the CIA outpost with the U.S. military

    The attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya to include prior threats and attacks against Western targets and given the known security shortfalls at the U.S. Mission, the panel said in a statement
    Senate report: Attacks on U.S. compounds in Benghazi could have been prevented - The Washington Post
    FOX Report
    mentioned tonight was the absurd "blame the building" scenario as Krauthammer put it.

    "State Dept." but absolutely no-one is mentioned. Like there is this entity that runs itself, with absolutely no-one in charge or even there.

    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)

    Don't worry. I imagine there are enough comments for two threads on this subject. The possibilities for pissing people off have just doubled.

    This is where our efforts should be focused, addressing actual problems, this is fair and good criticism. I just hope there's none of that "Obama let them die" bull****.

    I quite agree.

    As for the no names, I'm sure the parties know who they are. And Hillary does have a major role in that. I seem to recall she even stated that herself. So I don't think this is shocking.

    I do find this important: The report found no evidence of the kind of political coverup that Republicans have long alleged.

    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.

    I agree. Holding Obama responsible for his policy decisions is outrageous.

    As no one said that, nice strawman.

    : There is one puzzle I haven't figured out yet, though. If no one ever tells him what's going on, which unfortunately seems to be the case from what I've been reading, what criteria does he use to arrive at any decision he makes?` Seems kinda haphazard to me. Does he use an astrologer, or a dart board, or a "jobs jar," or something I haven't thought of yet?

    Good morning, humbolt. `

    Yeah, it's almost as good as the one in post #4 that you wholeheartedly agree with.
