    Is the right-wing still griping about Benghazi? I thought that was old news by now.

    So? I never served, but even I know if a fool rushes into a battle unprepared, then said fool becomes a dead fool.
    And I believe there has been countless investigations and countless documents handed over to Congressional investigations and if the biggest feather Benghazi conspiracy theorists have in their cap is a local CIA commander told them to his underlings to wait before heading out because he was trying to coordinate and get more information, then the desperation is incredibly thick.
    The underlings are the ones who were there.

    You thought wrong. Do you have something constructive to contribute?

    You don't need to concern yourself about what I contribute. Read my posting and if you don't think what I say is important, don't respond.

    Which NO ONE in the article said.

    In a statement to Fox News, a senior intelligence official did allow that the security team was delayed from responding while the CIA’s top officer in Benghazi tried to rally local support.
    This was the only reason given in the link.

    So JB produce the link that shows this is old news. That this didn't get released yesterday? Do you have that Link JB?

    Where is the link showing this is OLD NEWS. Either you can run to the Benghazi threads and shows us. Or you can google it up.

    Now do you or don't you have this link?
    i never said it was not something new
    i asked what does it add to what we already knew about the benghazi incident
    nothing that i have read, and nothing that you have been able/willing to share (after numerous requests to tell us how this 'new' information shapes the understanding of benghazi in any way)
    that you have been unable to offer such insights allows me to conclude this is as beneficial to our understanding as to learn 'new' information that one of the participants was wearing khakis instead of blue jeans
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    It might be better to watch the program, read the book, and follow the inquiry this fall to see what really happened.

    It seems clear that some people still believe Barrack Obama, Susan Rice and the what difference does it make now excuse and will continue to believe no matter what evidence comes up.

    So was "Bob". Has "Bob" said he used those words? And are Benghazi conspiracy theorists REALLY hanging their hat on what phrase Bob used, despite the fact we know we DID send assistance to the consulate?

    Like I said...desperation.

    ...so he wasn't looking for information regarding whether or not Libyan support would take care of it?

    The desperation is thick.
