    When you think that the Benghazi compound had already been hit weeks prior when someone blew a 12 foot hole in the Compound wall, and every other Western Government pulled their people out ( even the Red Cross pulled their people out ) because of the increasing dangers, and the fact that Chris Stevens had been requesting additional security detail it seems unbelievably cold and irresponsible not to at least have enough offsite military assets available to mount a immediate counter offensive or even a rescue.

    But there was nothing there apparently.

    Those people were left to fend for themselves and all the American people got from the Obama administration was a BS narrative about a YouTube video.

    Now we know you support people Politically who would play Politics with the deaths of 4 Americans but don't expect us to.

    Then they got copies of the Emails that Blumenthal sent to Hillary......while she broke her agreement with BO over Foreign Donors to Charity. Then allowing a breach of US National Security.....and opening up BO and the White House too.

    Plus they were the ones to discover Hillary's Emails and that State never had Hillary's when the other Committees asked for the info. I would stress "asked" as no other committee had the powers to compel any to do anything.

    The one thing forums like this has taught me, along with the internet & cable news, is just how different our spheres of reference can be from each other. It took me awhile to realize that for those that differ from me in what seems like outlandish ideas & perceptions, are very true perceptions and realities to those posters - no different than they appear to myself.

    Well for the most part - there's always a few trolls & rabble-rousers, but I believe most people that differ from me do honestly believe in their take-on-things.
    I worked at headquarters for a multi-national corporation, and experienced first-hand how business differs from government. Business has to make a profit, where the government doesn't have that Damocles sword hanging over its head. Business could never have an $18 trillion debt, as an example, or they would have long since had to file for bankruptcy - so their eye is always on the bottom line. In truth, most of us have the same limitations on our family budgets, so I understand that thinking. What I don't understand is why those in DC seem to think otherwise, and I'm talking both sides of the aisle. Business also seems to be more nimble in making decisions, too; plus a CEO and his advisors can get fired almost immediately if the shareholders get irate enough, so I wonder, if government had to live under the same conditions, if we'd be in better shape financially than we are?. I think we probably would be, because of the accountability factor, and they wouldn't be allowed to keep their job until the next election, either. The only "shareholders" in government are the taxpayers, and few politicians seem to care what we think - until election time comes. Then we're suddenly important again, and the cycle continues, ad nauseum, as lots of promises are made to correct things that aren't working. Weird way to live, but I guess we're used to it.

    Really man, you cannot attack this guy that way and then claim a moral high ground.

    On the one hand you claim Hillary will "stand on the truth" [which is ****ing laughable] then suggest Gowdie is not craty enough to catch her. If she's standing on truth, what's to catch? If she's so ****ing honest, why is it important for the Hillary propaganda machine to make Gowdie into an inept and "stupid" lawyer.

    Were me, I would be championing how smart he is.
    go for it

    but he's actually a lightweight


    You blew it friend, ice cream and hot coals do not make for a good argument
    then it's good thing i offered neither

    That doesn't mean she cannot be subpoena'd in the future due to any revelations that come forth, and over a specific issue.
    she hung him out to dry
    he wanted a private hearing she INSISTED on a PUBLIC one

    Even better. The more she looks like she's dissembling, the more she reinforces the image that she's untrustworthy.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    I don't think she can lose that perception, and I think it will increase without any help from her screw ups with Benghazi. Although it would be nice if it was the last straw to break the camel's back.

    Did you see that Boone Pickens said he thinks she will drop out. Wonder why he would think that despite being a Bush man.




    Boone Pickens: Hillary Clinton will drop out of 2016 race......

    Noted oil and gas man T. Boone Pickens isn’t shy about his feelings on Washington, and he didn’t hold back in an interview with Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer at the Milken Global Conference in Los Angeles. Pickens, Founder of BP Capital, says, “I don’t think Washington has a clue” just how extensive U.S. energy resources are. Pickens says the number one thing he would like to see from the next President is a U.S. energy policy, which he believes is non-existent at this point.

    Pickens says he doesn’t think Clinton will make it to the end of the campaign. He says, simply, “I think she’ll pull out of the deal.” Pickens points to questions surrounding Clinton’s use of a personal email account and server during her time as Secretary of State. In a news conference about the email account, former Secretary Clinton said she had some 30,000 emails deleted out of more than 60,000 emails sent or received between March 2009 and February 2013.

    “She’s got too much to explain… scrubbing the server like she did,” he says. “Her timing may be very bad.”.....snip~

    Seems the WSJ had it all from April. Note she didn't say anything and her attorney said it was unnecessary. Then Gowdy LET her choose her fate.



    The committee previously requested two appearances from Mrs. Clinton over her exclusive use of a private email during her time at the State Department: one public hearing and one private transcribed interview.

    An attorney for Mrs. Clinton said this week that a private interview was unnecessary and that the former secretary of state was willing to answer questions about her email arrangement in public.

    In his letter, Mr. Gowdy said a private interview still remained an option if Mrs. Clinton was concerned about the privacy implications of testifying about her email practices. He encouraged her to meet with the panel twice.....snip~

    Re: Hillary Clinton agrees to testify on Benghazi, emails this month

    I think Republicans seriously overestimate how much Americans care about Benghazi and Clinton's emails. They want to get her in trouble but aren't they basically using tax payers money to try and help out their parties candidate for next year? So who should really be getting in trouble?
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
