i also hold the administration accountable for what happened after the attack. However, my blame is specifically targeted at the disjointed explanations by the state department and CIA provided during multiple inquiries. i don't see that as evidence of engaging in a coverup in pursuit of some political goal, i see it as a consequence of the CIA and state department not getting a coherent picture of what had happened before they tried to explain what had happened.
As for the night of the attack, i cannot blame anyone of willful negligence because i believe that no one had a clear understanding of what was happening. i know it sounds like a copout but i think the fog of war played a part in influencing our response to the events unfolding several timezones away. i think we were slow to react because we simply lacked enough information to respond quickly.

anyway, i just don't care. you all know what you're doing deep down. that's why you come into these threads and spend half your lives quote farming to pretend you are actually seeking justice for the tragedy. in reality, you're using this tragedy as a foothold to attack a president that you hate and a mediocre, dynastic candidate who might run for president that you also hate.
if just one of you would admit that, it would restore some of my faith in our stupid two party system.
come on. someone just come out and admit it.
i so feel like the kid in The Emperor's New Clothes right now.
