    That's seems like a significant impact to me.
    All military confrontations have become political rather than allowing the generals to handle things.. It is not a good time to pledge your service and your life to your country when politicians are using you for political gain.

    Are you saying you still don't understand the info being newly released? Or are you looking to avoid finding that Link that shows this was just old information. According to you.....re-released?

    Oh and I have shown several times New info or forgotten info about Benghazi......but that's not the issue here. The issue here.....is you saying this is Was already out with the public before.

    So can ya come up with that link for us showing us this was all well Known.....or you can admit you don't have such a link or any info on this issue.
    Bubba has lept on the character-assassination train of the Libya veterans before. He chose to pick on a guy that one of our posters had actually served with, mind you, and sort of embarrassed himself at the time, but he demonstrated that he has a single task in these discussions and it is to protect the administration.

    The testimony of the actual Libya vets correspond to the general critique of the Administration - that it dithered, stood down or delayed forces whose job it is to respond to these sorts of things, and then attempted to cover it up with a bunch of bull about a youtube video.


    I mean, really, at this point, is anyone honestly trying to argue that it is somehow unlike our administration to dither and delay in the face of crises? Or that it is unlike them to dissemble?

    The Chief of Station answers to the Chief of Mission (the Ambassador), who is State Department.

    And the circumstances DO matter. Because the Obama Admin deliberately and willfully dissembled. They trotted out Susan Rice on all five Sunday shows to repeat what they knew was a lie. Why did they lie? Do you know why?
    So you do think the motivations behind a crime are important. Interesting. I guess you're behind hate crime legislation, then.

    Knowing commission of an act is not the same as unknowing commission of it. That's why we differentiate between murder and manslaughter.

    Clearly not relevant to this event.

    That's interesting. You believe that the question of knowledge of the truth does not pertain to culpability in the charge that the Administration willfully dissembled?

    There aren't any left-wing talking points. The POINT is that Benghazi is a non story. Ronald Reagn lost 225 American service men in Lebanon and then gathered up his toys and split! So, four guys in Benghazi is nuuuuuthing compared to that.

    As is usual with Washington, it's not the crime that's the scandal, it's the cover-up. The Administration lied to the American people about a terrorist attack in which an Ambassador was killed in order to shape an election. That isn't a non-story. It's the kind of thing that would have resulted in mass-calls for impeachment from the Left had Bush done it.
