    Ron Paul, who I usually disagree with, is correct.

    This thread isn't about Ron Paul. It's about his mouth-breathing son.

    Tough questions about this tragedy are certainly relevant and important.

    This was not the greatest tragedy since 9/11 though. That's just hyperbole.

    Yeah, it was a wild non sequitur and you could hear she was incredulous that that was his question?

    Okay regardless of what your party affiliation is, we all know that this guy is full of ****. I guess he overlook the hot topic about some shooting that occurred in CT. What was that story about again???

    This guy is slim.
    He's absolutely right

    They were repeated warnings that were ignored. The Security at the consulate was basically disarmed and outsourced. Stevens was the first ambassador killed in 30 years.

    CT was a completely different animal. Paul is speaking of National Security, Politics, Foreign Policy. ect.

    How dare anyone question Hillary's incompetence, conflicting story, and our Government!

    It's boring and cliche to keep whining that anyone who questions your Dear Leader or his incompetent Administration is a "sore loser". Time to read a new Chapter in Rules for Radicals

    By turns emotional and fierce, Clinton choked up as she spoke of comforting the victims' families and grew angry when a Republican senator accused the Obama administration of misleading the country over whether the Benghazi incident stemmed from a protest.

    "With all due respect, the fact is that we had four dead Americans," Clinton shot back as she testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, an appearance delayed more than a month because of her ill health.

    "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?" she said, making chopping motions with her hands for emphasis.....snip~

    Clinton angrily defends handling of Benghazi attack - Yahoo! News

    Course her saying she didn't know about any cables from the Libyans doesn't help her out much nor that she had seen any requests for more security. Moreover both her and Obama knew exactly what Libya was like after Gadhafi was ousted.

    Well Madam Secretary it matters now.....due to All that Incompetence that 2 different committees have found. Which means in taking responsibility you admit to your screw up and that costed 4 American's lives. While putting a host of others in as much danger as well. First there was protests and then there was no protests.

    Armed militants.....yeah the sames ones that you hired to protect our people from the Libyans. Wheres the Autopsy on Stevens Body? Where is the question about Stevens meeting that Turk Ambassdor 2 hrs prior to the attack and was seen Right on the Street in front of the Consulate?

    If your daughter and/or son was one of the 20 children massacre in CT, would you still rank Benghazi as the worst tragedy since 9/11.

    once again twisting the post. It is fair to question but to compare this to 9/11???? Rand couldn't even pull his home state, he sure can't be a happy loser!

    Now much is made of warnings and other signals, what gets lost in it all is how many warnings, intercepts, requests for everything all the time are routinely passed back and forth. mistakes, sure but to carry on as if postings to the trouble spots of the world are risk free....

    Onething we forget is this Ambassador made his bones by risk taking. He was a brave man, and it is brave men who make the sacrifice, not the second guessers who never venture out.

    I see no honor in what Rand did.

    From a Foreign Policy and National Security standpoint, it absolutely is. This was a US Ambassador. Sean Smith was a network admin. Stevens repeatedly begged for help/more security, even up to the day he was killed. Those pleas were ignored.

    Now much is made of warnings and other signals, what gets lost in it all is how many warnings, intercepts, requests for everything all the time are routinely passed back and forth. mistakes, sure but to carry on as if postings to the trouble spots of the world are risk free....
    Laughable dodge

    Your offhandedly dismissing mountains of evidence and emails that refute how much you are trying to downplay it. Why don't you just admit that the death of 4 Americans at that embassy really isn't that big of a deal to you? As long as Hillary can lie her way through a hearing to skate politically, you're cool with a few dead bodies. The lies be damned. The fact that she lied to the faces of the families at the wake, and told them their loved ones died because of a youtube video doesn't matter.

    Onething we forget is this Ambassador made his bones by risk taking. He was a brave man, and it is brave men who make the sacrifice, not the second guessers who never venture out.

    I see no honor in what Rand did.
    Oh I get it now. It's Steven's fault now that his pleas for additional security were ignored. Got it.
