    LOL It was the CIA's failure to uncover the plot, it was their "operation" that was keeping that consulate open when other countries had withdraw to Tripoli and their advice that caused Stevens to refuse extra security TWICE. The were heavily involved in Benghazi and it was not "ad hoc". You are just discounting it because it doesn't incriminate the Whitehouse just like the House investigation/witch hunt. That's also why we will never know the real story.

    I worked for our govt at that time. I don't recall being lied too bout who did it, why, and I think some folks were fired or at least demoted due to the failures to protect our troops.

    His many people were fired by this regime? How many lies told for weeks after? You brought this up, own it, and recognize the difference between then and now.

    Completely wrong is your opine. Stepped down doesn't mean he isn't in line to back up Hilda as a VP, Sec Def, or some other spot. What a DNC joke point.

    And today the situation is much better than it was when Obama became POTUS.

    That does matter to them, in fact I don't believe they care about the four who died in Benghazi, it's just a talking point them to place the blame on Hillary Clinton, who if she runs, would wipe the floor with any Gee Oh Pee candidate, and they know it.

    How much did the President (Ronald Reagan) own up to the fact that those guards didn't have ammunition in their guns?

    Amb. Stevens was in Benghazi for reasons unrelated to anything any other agency was doing. We kept our consulate open after others had left because that's what we do. I myself was in the US Embassy in Monrovia during Round One of the Liberian Civil War (1990-91) when we were the only embassy left in town. That happens regularly. Stevens' refusal of extra security had everything to do with his confidence and nothing to do with anything else. Of course we were involved in Benghazi, but personnel at the annex had no (zero, nada, zip) responsibility for security at the Consulate. When they reacted on the night of the attack they reacted as Americans helping other Americans, nothing more.

    Considering it's in the official record a lot more then ofailures lies to the UN about the tragedy in Benghazi. Reagan demanded answers, your dictator continues to hide his.

    Really? Did the Commander and Chief demand answers from himself as to why guards would not have loaded guns in unfriendly territory?

    That's not a C-in-C decision.
