    Why are you being such a jerk? Or do you just like to fight with everybody over everything. I agree with many of your posts but apparently only agreement with everything you say spares the ridicule and condescension.

    The Benghazi investigation has already been done. A bi-partisan investigation already delivered a report. Bipartisan Report Calls Benghazi Attacks 'Preventable' : The Two-Way : NPR

    And what does that have to do with U.S. soldiers? If you want to see what happened at Benghazi as proof of some deep seated hatred of soldiers by Obama, be my guest. You have no proof supporting that at all. And certainly nothing in the report supports that ridiculous conclusion.

    Bergdahl was in no position to refuse or accept an invitation to the Rose Garden since he was in an Army hospital in Germany. Bergdahl's parents were invited because their son had just been freed from years of captivity. I'm not seeing the anti-military conspiracy here. Maybe you can elaborate. So far, the anti-military President has saved countless military lives by the use of drones to attack our enemies, instead of soldiers.

    At least foreigners who violate American laws aren't put in front of a crooked justice system.
    And US prisons aren't like Mexican prisons.

    Actually I'm a nice guy but my style may be harsh. I do agree with almost all your posts so, when we disagree, please take it as no big deal.

    The Benghazi investigation has already been done.
    No, it has not. Inside the Beltway: Here comes Benghazi, The Investigation - Washington Times

    I never mentioned "deep seated hatred".
    Bergdahl was in no position to refuse or accept an invitation to the Rose Garden since he was in an Army hospital in Germany.

    It was Obama who invited them though the survivors of Benghazi, as an example, received no such invitation. This invite was designed to overshadow the illegal release of five Islamic terrorists, an attempt at a 'feel good story', and that is all.

    I've begun to pay occasional attention to Legal Insurrection and read here that Sotloff was an Israeli citizen and an observant Jew whose friends and colleagues monitored Facebook and etc. to make sure that these sites were scrubbed of references to his heritage. I had no idea. Steven Sotloff | Islamic State | Syria | James Foley

    I'm referring to the people indigenous to that area....they have been killing and beheading each other there for over 1,000 years. There are no true countries, there. There are tribes. They are not going to change. This is how they are, how they live, what they believe. If someone else "infects" their space, they will have hell to pay, just like they give each other. Mass executions,, genocides, beheadings, torture, stoning to death, not recognizing human rights. It's all about their "cause."

    The first city on earth was in Iraq...where Baghdad is located. That's why their museum was so important. The world lost most of those artifacts when we invaded the country. They were either destroyed or stolen. So...."they" have been in that area of the world since before human memory. Whoever "they" are...sunnis, shi'ites, etc.

    Yes.

    Seal Team 6, Bin Laden's Wife, and the people who did the DNA testing. But I guess the Bin Laden family is in on the conspiracy:

    So even if this is true, does being a Jew, an Israeli, or both mean that he deserved this or that it somehow mitigates the crime? And if not then why bring it up?

    I don't think she meant anything negative by her comments. It was just an observation and the lengths friends had to go to to hide it from those who would do him harm.

    I'm guessing that you didn't read the link. If you had, I don't think you'd be asking this question.

    Did you know that Sotloff was Jewish and an Israeli? I didn't. For me and probably many others, this is breaking news.

    I thought the implication of this was obvious, but since it isn't, I'll spell it out in asking you a few questions that I'm surprised you didn't ask yourself:

    What do you think his captors would have done to him had they known he was a Jew and an Israeli?

    Given what these terrorists and their sympathizers think of Jews in general and Israel in particular, don't you think it took an extraordinary courage to report in this part of the world?

    Isn't it a testimony to the character of the man himself that 150 people were working tirelessly to scrub the 'Net of any careless references that could betray Sotloff?
