    And if you're so concerned about the lives of Iraqi's, let's talk about that early withdrawal and Obama's "I ended the war" which seems to still be a war.

    To equate the lives lost of servicemen and diplomats to a bunch of baby killing terrorists shows the true colors of the Amerikan liberal.....

    It's it's American it has to be apologized for, and uniformed Americans are fodder for the great left wing propaganda wars
    You have completely lost your mind.

    You honestly think the Iraqis he was lamenting were insurgents?

    And, once again, I am neither Rep nor Dem and I think Hilary would make a lousy POTUS...so I am not partisan at all on this.
    The difference between the deaths is that Iraq was a combat operation where casualties are expected, and Benghazi was not. That doesn't mean the deaths in combat aren't mourned. They are. The argument that Iraq was unnecessary is a different argument - one best carried out in a discussion of Bush's foreign policy. The situation in Libya was not a combat situation according to the administration, and while I would agree that would be a standard conclusion, events leading up to the evening of the attack strongly suggest that it actually might have been one, and nothing - absolutely nothing - was done to address that reality. There was a concerted effort to cover that reality up instead.

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.

    Its not just Benghazi DA. Its all of Libya. Tripoli and the Embassy there too.

    Now a failed state, breeding and training ground for terrorists. 3 different Major groups. With access to Oil and to the Atlantic Coast.

    Although now Benghazi is part of ISIS and is considered an Emirate.

    Hopefully they will bring out how Hillary and the State Dept hired Ansar al Sharia as security for Benghazi. Same group that left the first calling card and blowing a hole in the gate with the first attack on the Consulate. Then doing the hit on the Anniversary date.

    Same group that went after the Brits and Italians Ambassadors. Then hit the Red Cross.

    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.
    Any rational person would want these things investigated, regardless of political lean-but the left is being absolutely partisan, and flippant in the face of transparency.

    If this administration had been republican, they'd already have made several movies about the corruption in this white house.

    Yes, I do remember that - but it was billions, not trillions, and was probably caused in part by people who bought a house they couldn't afford, and when the "teaser" interest rate became a real interest rate, they defaulted and walked away, leaving the banks with houses they didn't want on their books.

    Whatever happened to the "old-fashioned" bankers who wouldn't give you a loan until they verified that you had a job, weren't currently in debt over your head, had never filed for bankruptcy, made sure you could repay the loan they might make to you, and wanted you to produce the past two years of IRS filings to verify your job earnings? That used to be the rules, and banks were sound back then. Hence the saying "you can take that to the bank," which meant it was a sure thing. Not any more, I guess!

    The point in my post was to show that American taxpayers are on the hook for nearly $160 trillion dollars for European derivatives - derivatives that are only pieces of paper with nothing backing them! And that's only what I know about, but it's probably more! I know that banks all over the world are tied together, but neither the American taxpayers, nor the Federal Reserve nor the FDIC have the money to cover this outrageous amount, so why does it fall on us to be responsible for it? "Too big to fail" is not our doing! They gambled with the money they received, and it's our fault? Nuts to that! :

    Looks like it was saying the same thing that the WSJ did Pete. They just didn't have a copy of Gowdys letter. To know about encouraging Hillary to still meet with the panel.

    That letter from TownHall was from Clinton's Attorney.

    Greetings, US Conservative.

    Thank you, but the differences are too stark to ignore, and it bothers me that our government seems to be trying to make life as difficult as possible for the business world - you know, the entities that provide jobs for people so they can have their income taxed to pay for everything the government wants to spend money on, whether it makes sense or not!
