    You're being awfully generous to yourself if you think 90% of the people here can comprehend your nonsense.

    Well if you were up on what she said. Then it would have registered. Meaning your light bulb would have went off.

    Whatever on the Percentage, seems you are in a very small minority. So that's not saying much for yourself.

    LOL, So what else is new....You've never been for getting to the truth about Benghazi...But as adpst just asked you, and you ignored...The Select committee investigating Benghazi is absolutely bipartisan, and they are interviewing people about it...

    It is only your side of the isle that likes to stomp off and create crap like this tantrum by Feinstein...Refer to Connyers and his little hearings in the basement broom closet of the congressional building during the Bush administration.

    I guess you can't remember what you wrote from one moment to the other. That's fine, but don't call people liars just because you've got the memory of a goldfish.
    What you claim is not what I wrote,

    Well, that's false, and I'm always amazed that people equate "disagree with me on some issues" with evil. Surely, if you think about it for about 1 second, you'd realize that "The democrats" represents about half the country and pretty much the gamut of opinions on just about every important issue. One of my best friends is a democrat, as is his son, and the democratic son spent six years in the ME killing radical Islamists, his dad the last 30 in active service or the Guard, and all of the time post 9/11 training others to kill them...



    ?????
    The democrats are a political party - with a defined agenda and platform.

    When we see the outgoing chair of the Senate intelligence committee handing Al Qaeda a major propaganda victory that will be - is already - used to recruit terrorists to attack Americans and American interests around the globe: handed this due to the butt hurt over suffering an election loss, then it is difficult to deny that the democrats hold Republicans as a greater enemy than the Al Qaeda faction they just helped.

    Many Americans will die because of what Feinstein did - that is a fact.

    So providing a propaganda win and recruiting tool to Al Qaeda is something you support? As long as it damages the Republicans?

    Because this is precisely the position that Feinstein and the democrats took.

    That's fine, we should and are defending ourselves and no one has claimed we should not. But torture and public, televised executions are beneath a decent country. It's what ISIS does. It's also stupid in every way imaginable IMO.

Unless the goal was to keep terrorism active, in which case it would make sense.

    We are not really defending ourselves. If we REALLY wanted to eradicate ISIS, do you believe they would be able to continue to exist? We have the ability both in technology and manpower to make that organization nothing more than a memory. The problem is we lack the political will to go get them.

    Yup. India and Pakistan have a similarly lengthed conflict over Kashmir, how's that going?

    But I can't help but notice that you didn't answer the question?

    Decades upon decades and the only real result has been a bolstering of various terrorist organizations.
    That is flatly false. I could just as easily make the argument that the only result has been that Iran hasn't shut down the Strait of Hormuz. Focusing on a single data point devoid of context or competing priorities may make for good polemics, but it's a poor way to craft policy.

    Maybe doing more of the same isn't the best plan. Unless the goal was to keep terrorism active, in which case it would make sense.
    Gosh. If only there was some kind of counter-insurgency methodology out there somewhere with a recent, proven track record......
