    There have been dozens of threads devoted to this topic over the years. Now we have a new topic.

    The leftists are deliberately trying to destroy threads about Benghazi by diverting back to George Bush, just as Barry Obama has done..

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I really don't want to make this about the Barracks, but you are still misrepresenting. In your quotes, Reagan isn't denying them what they need. They were in the process of addressing it, just not fast enough by your quote.

    Also, the gate was armed. The only Marine to chamber a round was in the guard house.

    The difference is, NOTHING was done about Benghazi.

    And this is about the new thread. You don't understand that you guys killed any chance of having outrage here because you had none when it matter. You're the reason this won't likely go anywhere. You guys set the bar. You're now not seen as having any substance because of your hypocrisy.

    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.

    You'll recall, nothing happened to Bush. Nothing. And he went way beyond the PDB's. And you and others were never, ever outraged. How can you now expect your outrage to be taken seriously. You set the bar.

    We do have a new committee, this time a "special" one according Boehner.
    As comparede to the "not-so-special" ones of ISSA, Camp and McKeon.
    The same McKeon who disses I$$A and the General.

    The hyper-rightists have forgotten ACA, due to polling on Medicaid Extension.
    Now they're back to fund-raising off of our murdered personnel .

    Excuses for the GOP Presidents and deliberate prejudices(s) against the DEMs.

    Were our four murdered personnel unarmed?
    Why does GOP Chair Buck McKeon of Armed Services say there is nothing new here?

    As anti-Obamanists ignore the bi-partisan Senate committee.

    I get it. You are going to make excuses and try to divert attention from Obama and his crew. That is fine. They were negligent in their duties and should be held accountable. By our current government's standards, that means nothing will happen to them.

    American's were asking for help. This administration denied them. This administration will have to live with the consequences. They need to come clean on the story and everyone will move past it.

    And to answer your question, no, not all 4 men who were killed were armed.

    Don't you see how horribly hypocritical this is?

    April 18, 1983: a suicide bomber detonated a truck in the Beruit Embassy killing 63.
    October 23, 1983: a suicide bomber detonates a truck in the Marine barracks killing 299.
    September 20th, 1984: a suicide bomber detonated a truck in the Beruit Embassy killing 20. The embassy had been open 6 weeks.

    September 23rd, 1984: When asked why security recommendations hadn't been implemented in the rebuilt embassy Regan responded 'Anyone that's ever had their kitchen done over knows that it never gets done as soon as you wish it would.'

    But that's okay. They were in the "process" of doing something about security; hey at least this time the guards were allowed to load their weapons. 17 months and two other attacks was not enough to figure out that it's time to do something about suicide truck bombs. But Obama on the other hand: 125-150 attackers killed 4 in two separate attacks in Benghazi. Contemporaneously, attacks on the Cairo, Yemen, Tunis and Khartoum embassies didn't result in any fatalities.

    There isn't even a word for how different the two situations are. After the THIRD horrific attack; including one on on a building you just rebuilt from the ground up because it was destroyed; the president claims we're working on it and that's enough for you. Put a Democrat in the office and one lapse is the worst thing that's every happened.

    As I said, let's not change the subject. If you want them to make a commission on that, then fine. We are talking about Benghazi.
