    Rand Paul needs to learn that acting like an asshole trying to exploit a tragedy to score political points instead of trying to learn how to avoid such tragedies in the future is not going to work. I did laugh out loud at the "if I had been president" line. He is getting a little big for his britches.

    Republicans could have had the big score they wanted if they had focused on the mistakes made. Instead they went the asshole route and let Clinton come out looking professional.

    And the conspiracy carp is retarded.

    Let's see: Tea Party Occupied Congress cuts spending on embassy security; an embassy is attacked and there aren't ready resources to defend it; and you conclude that spending cuts didn't matter.

    Funny, basic logic would suggest the opposite conclusion.

    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.



    Oh I get it now. It's Steven's fault now that his pleas for additional security were ignored. Got it.
    Not his fault at all, just a risk he took routinely, walking out among the regular people, being seen outside Embassy grounds which was very risky. there is a 'mountain' of evidence he should never have gone to the far less secure Benghazi compound, especially on the anniversary of 9-11.

    However I didn't know you was so privy to all the communications. You know so much about how many 'pleas' and begging was done. (especially compared to the other stations around the world where last i heard had a bushel basket of other nations not that into us.

    The amount of spin here is laughable. Arrogantly dismissing his assessment of the situation might work for the Jon Stewart crowd, but the fact is we were lied to for weeks following this attack and still are being lied to. This was a huge failing on the part of the state department. Claiming that nobody knew was complete BS. Somebody had to tell those Marines to stand down. And attacking his claim about "worst since 9/11" by going back to CT is a transparent political dodge, especially when coupled with the earlier warnings we heard about later and the other attacks on US assets on the same day. On top of that we find out about delivering tanks and planes to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, it all stinks. If the smirks and smears allow you to dismiss the miserable failings of this administration keep in mind that they will continue to lie and laugh at YOU too when your taxes go up again and whatever they decide to do next to further an agenda that has nothing to do with the wellbeing of the American people. We need more of this kind of dressing down by those who are not afraid of Chicago style politics.

    This (coupled with the other attacks on that day) could be argued to be the worst TERRORIST attack since 9/11 (even though they would still have their useful idiots believe it was about a tape). CT was a mentally unstable kid who killed a bunch of kids. Tragic, but it wasn't terrorism. And even in the face of that, the administration used it to further an agenda and try to bastardize the Constitution AGAIN with changes that would not have prevented it. You people who are buy or defending this crap are are either blind, stupid, or just as driven and cold as the powers that be.

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

    Good to see that somebody got it. He's right, she should have been fired.

    Lets see... congress holds hearings where several Democratic congressmen testify, under oath, to the very question of "Did budget cuts effect our ability to provide the additional security that was requested?" They all answered... "No, it did not."

    Funny, google and the ability to read and comprehend would sway most people into concluding that this talking point is bogus. But not you.

    Clinton said otherwise. Now, which would know better?

    But keep dancing. I love how tea partiers have to run from the consequences of their crank philosophy.

    Here's a concept: if you want better embassy security, PAY FOR IT!
