    If it was negligence then it falls on the CIA for not protecting Ambassador Stevens and for not heeding the warnings in the first place. Stevens went to Benghazi to act as interpreter for the CIA who were trying to negotiate with the local militants to give up their arms. If that isn't risking one's life, then I don't know what is.

    The CIA's mission in Benghazi was to clear a mile area around the compound to make it safe for the diplomats. They needed an interpreter to communicate with the locals and Amb. Stevens knew the language. The compound where Amb. Stevens was staying actually belonged to the CIA. That's why in the emails the state department requested they change the word "consulate" to "compound" suggesting they didn't want the blame for a failed CIA mission. The CIA were supposed to protect Amb. Stevens and the compound. They failed.

    It was no secret that Benghazi was a dangerous place if all the other foreign diplomats had abandoned their consulates days, weeks prior to Amb. Stevens arrival. So Amb. Stevens must have known he was risking his life when he went to Benghazi. In some circles that would make him a hero, not a victim.

    Well you are Right the precedent was set in the past.

    Wherein Susan Rice and the Democrats allowed a US Ambassador to be killed and had security problems with Embassies. Back then they said they fixed all the problems with the new measures and here we are again with the Demos throwing security out the window.....not listening to the people who they hired to help out.....and pretty much proving why they don't belong in Foreign Policy.....EVER!

    No they weren't trying to get local militia to give up arms. He met the Turks envoy. Since the Turks had closed up their embassy back when the fighting with Gadhafi was going on.

    Which was Validated that they were on the Streets seen 2hrs before the attack. That's when the Turk Left. Which again that needs to be pursued as to how he got out.

    After that meeting and not more than a few days Later a Libyan Freighter shows up off the coast of Syria and does not dock in any major port. Which we now all know was loaded with the weapons the Cia had confiscated from Gadhafi.

    You mentioned the senate, you remember back in 2012 when I said the election would be decided in the east. That if Romney lost any one of three states, Virginia, Florida and Ohio, that one should just go to bed because the election is over. All three states were must win states for Romney.

    I think the senate is coming close to that, being decided in the east again. With a net gain of six seats needed by the GOP to take control there are 4 states/seats they must win in the east to accomplish that, West Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and Kentucky. Lose any one of them the odds skyrocket against them gaining control of the senate, win all 4 and the odd of them gaining the senate a excellent. They would have protected the only two states the democrats had a chance of winning and won one state they should win and one that is a toss up. moving to the Central time zone, they now need only 4. Arkansas, Louisiana tossups, but very winnable, South Dakota and Montana, states like west Virginia should easily go to the GOP. We haven't even mentioned Alaska, Colorado, Michigan or Iowa.

    So I think if the GOP wins those 4 eastern states, they will eventually gain the senate by days end. If they lose one, time to go to bed, they ain't gonna do it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Harry Ried called the Special Committee a "Partisan Circus".

    Why would Harry Reid be opposed to a objective investigation if Obama and the Democrats have nothing to hide and did nothing wrong ?

    A lot of people consider an attack against US interests abroad as protests. Prior to 9/11 it was so frequent that people just got used to calling it 'collateral damage'. It really doesn't make any difference whether the attack was pre-planned or not if it was done in protest. So until they catch the guys who did it and they admit their motive....then it's all just speculation.



    One man's idea of violent protest is another man's idea of terror. Neither are mutually exclusive.

    Because there is no way that the Demos or Repubs can stop any charges that come out of the Special. Harry knows this.....so he just did what all the rest did. Play on the aspect it was a witchhunt.

    But then they forgot about the MS Media and their own words and who told who what and those overseas then they were left with no out. Actions and Body language and behaviors then all come into play.

    One of the few positives imo of the two political parties is if one does something corrupt and tries to cover up, the other investigates. It is the same with Christie.

At worse, there's merely a false narrative that was unsuccessfully portrayed.
    Merely a false narrative? This is the difference between the deniers and everyone else. They either reject the notion that any wrong doing occurred at all, or they believe their own tripe to make it more palatable to swallow.
