    Good evening, Jack.
    Where did you get that BS? Are you more concerned with greeting Jack than with the truth?

    I think Hillary is a hawk. I don't think she had direct control.

    Hillary Clinton is not a general. I'm not sure what "direct control" people think she would have had over anything that night.

    Good evening, Jack.
    And since that Ambassador was not in a US embassy AND turned down a offer of more security probably because the CIA did not want their cover blown, it is all Obama's fault? This was a CIA screwup and why should we be surprised at that? Bush gave them all got raises after they allowed the 911 attack and the Medal of Freedom to the CIA head after he called the presence of WMD's in the Iraq a "slam dunk". They are rewarded for failure and now that is all they can do.

    Good evening, Polgara.

    As I posted at the time, there was a "Roland at the Bridge" quality to the episode that gave it a sad nobility. This General obviously felt like they let people down.

    No one is claiming there was a stand down order. His testimony was that there were no orders at all.

    And that is why we let them die?

    I will grant you the whole mess stinks from one end to the other, too m any questions and too much ass covering and media manipulation for there not to be some hinkiness.

    But the issue here is the Obama administration's and Hillary Clinton's responsibility to have done everything possible to protect the lives of those serving the United States of America in foreign lands.

    Just like that sewage on puke Jimmy Carter left the bodies to American soldiers to rot and be desecrated in a middle east desert, this brand of Democrats is willing to sacrifice lives in order to protect it's slime ridden, lie infested reputations. "What difference, at this point, does it make doesn't cut it. Standing over the bodies of the fallen and knowingly lie about a spontaneous demonstration is right out of the gutter.

    This administration has no moral compass, no world view, only self preservation as a motivator.
