    Nobody on the right blurted that out, but many on the right like to take quotes out of context to spin an agenda.

    Clinton: With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.

    And if you think it wasn't a blatant attempt by Hillary Clinton to get the monkey off her back and escape responsibility for her role in the event, you're the reason why America keeps electing dolts as President.

    Republicans started calling hearings while the bodies were still warm, and any consternation over Benghazi was all Democrats' fault?
    A blatant lie - prove it.

    Does it stop?
    You didn't read the report and the article either, did you?

    Over a DOZEN embassies were attacked under Bush, 60 deaths total, yet the left didn't use those tragedies as avenues of attack against the Bush administration. See the difference? Of course not.

    And how's this for a little flashback?


    REAGAN AIDES SAY C.I.A. BULLETIN WARNED OF LIKELY BEIRUT ATTACK - NYTimes.com


    Were there hearings then? Nope.

    Should there have been? You decide.

    If it was Obama? You bet your bippy.

    Re: Republican-led report debunks Benghazi theories and accusations

    A little more from ...back then?

    Prior to the bombing that killed 241 Marines?

    ...of which the Reagan Administration *was* warned it would be the target of a terrorist attack?

    ...are you aware of the timeline?

    Here's just a snip -- click the link and open your eyes.

    April 18, 1983 Bombing of U.S. Embassy in Beirut
    A suicide bomber in a pickup truck loaded with explosives rammed into the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. 63 people were killed, including 17 Americans, eight of whom were employees of the CIA, including chief Middle East analyst Robert C. Ames and station chief Kenneth Haas.

    The U.S. government took no military action in response to the embassy bombing...

    Oct. 23, 1983 Bombing of Marine barracks in Beirut
    A suicide bomber detonated a truck full of explosives at a U.S. Marine barracks located at Beirut International Airport; 241 U.S. Marines were killed and more than 100 others wounded.


    Dec. 12, 1983 Bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Kuwait
    The American embassy in Kuwait was bombed in a series of attacks ...
    The U.S. military took no action in retaliation.

    Sept. 20, 1984 Bombing of U.S. Embassy annex northeast of Beirut
    In Aukar, northeast of Beirut, a truck bomb exploded outside the U.S. Embassy annex killing 24 people, two of whom were U.S. military personnel. ...

    The U.S. mounted no military response to the embassy annex bombing.

    Name the Embassy that was attacked right before a Residential Election under Bush that was passed off as a " spontaneous protest " because a truthful explanation was Politically inconvenient.

    Name one.

    Irrelevant.

    Which one of those attacks was passsd off as a " spontaneous protest " because a truthful account was Politically damaging ?

    Which one of those attacks left a entire Political party scrambling for cover as their numerous lies started to catch up to them ?

    Four dead Americans and the Democrats cover their asses first.

    F***in low lifes.

    Re: Republican-led report debunks Benghazi theories and accusations

    What a stupid request.

    Name one that fits the exact parameters of the exact situation I want to fit into my bubble of understanding of this political football so it jives with why I can make it *the same* - otherwise, no dice.

    How lame.

    Hey Fenton, you finally figure out there was no Embassy or Consulate in Benghazi?
