    Re: State Department: Stop asking us about the Beghazi attack

    I have no problem with them not wanting to disclose information that might tip-off Al Qaeda in Libya that we might be close to dropping bombs on their heads.

    But to use the excuse of the "Justice Department" ? Don't blow smoke up my ass is all.

    Why did you dishonestly snip this from my post when you quoted it?

    That said, I totally agree with you in that this is not a "crime scene"...I won't ever accuse this administration of speaking competently.

    No. I'm just pointing out nobody should be surprised.

    After all, we are a nation that admits to running secret prisons and engages in kidnapping on the international scene. Ideas like the Rule of Law are nothing but dusty good hearted jokes.

    The secene is under the control of the investigators. As they are the one's with the expertise in this area. If they don't tell the State Dept. anything or ask them not to say anything what do you want the State Dept to do? Give some pablum feel good rhetoric?

    I think they are doing the right thing by keepping very tight lipped.

    This is what it says:

    What is the FBI’s role in combating terrorism?

    The FBI is the nation’s lead federal law enforcement agency for investigating and preventing acts of domestic and international terrorism. It is the lead federal agency for investigating attacks involving weapons of mass destruction—those involving chemical, radiological, or biological agents or nuclear weapons. The FBI is also responsible for specific terrorism-related offenses, such as violence at airports, money laundering, attacks on U.S. officials, and others. The FBI also works closely with the Director of National Intelligence and other U.S. intelligence agencies to gather and analyze intelligence on terrorism and other security threats. It is the number one priority of the FBI to protect the U.S. and U.S. persons and interests around the world from terrorist attack.
    I don't have a problem with the FBI using its keen resources to investigate the scene. What I have a problem with is hiding behind it, and pretending that because they're doing it, you can't say anything. This isn't a crime scene, as you agree, and nothing here indicates that an FBI investigation, internationally, makes it a crime scene. There's no "law" to be enforced here.

    Of course you do. But this doesn't answer my question -- why did you snip my post and make a sarcastic remark I had already addressed in what you snipped?

    What do you mean, "no"? By saying this, you ARE saying the administrations are equivalent.
