    Perhaps she could elaborate on just where she erred in her responsibilities, as well as explaining the role of the Commander in Chief in all of this.

    Where were you when the last President sent over 4000 Americans to their death in Iraq under false pretenses. The hypocracy is astounding

    I was in Costa Rica.

    But what has this to do with the thread?

    There were two attacks and they were hours apart. The first attack was on the consulate compound and confusion arose when no could find or contact Amb. Stevens. Why? Because he was already dead. They couldn't see that with the drone.

    Later a contingency team in an armored vehicle was sent in to evacuate remaining personal at the compound came under attack. A couple of Navy Seals were killed in the effort but they got everyone evacuated ...including the dead.

    If Obama really gave the orders he is claiming to have made then why did Panetta keep his job? He should have been fired the very next day. Perhaps the president wad daydreaming about flying to a fundraiser the next day. He was detached, disinterested, cold to the murders of Americans. At the time he was told his Ambassador was missing. He didn't care. He went missing for the next eight hours.
    Why did half of the Bush administration and the Pentagon keep their jobs after 9/11? What a mess that was.....

    Complete 911 Timeline: Bush's Actions on 9/11

    Shortley after the attacks, Bush was flying around in circles over the country for hours without a jet escort and no communication and while there was still possible hijacked planes in the air and after Cheney had given orders to shoot down aircraft without Bush's authority. Can you imagine what would have happened if Air force One had been shot down over US soil by our own military under orders from Cheney?

    I understand the cover up. I understand the lies. I understand the politics. The president did not want to be involved just in case it did not go well. So he abandoned four Americans to their deaths so his chances of re-election would remain strong.

    I do not understand why you would repeat their lies. Obama's failure to render defense aid to Americans in battle is unrelated to the very timy cuts coming on March first unless the incredibly feckless Boehner capitulates once again.

    I even understand why the weak-minded and gullible fall for the fear mongering.
    Do you understand that the Republicans are using Bengazi as a political ploy? If not, then you really don't understand politics at all...especially dirty politics. Or maybe you do, since you insist on lying about Obama's feelings, motives and actions. Are you somehow privy to Obama's thoughts and actions 24/7? If so, then why aren't you testifying before congress?

    It seems the only reason we're even having this discussion is because McCain refuses to take personal responsibility for missing a two hour briefing at the Whitehouse about Benghazi, and to cover up his embarrassment he then called for a special committee to investigate what he could have learned in two hours if he had only attended the briefing.....


    "...Brian Rogers, a spokesman for McCain, said the senator missed the briefing due to a “scheduling error.” Rogers declined to comment when The Huffington Post asked for a reaction to comments from Collins and Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) that a special committee for Benghazi is unnecessary, or if McCain has spoken with Collins since the briefing.....read.."

    "U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) today issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s decision to withdraw all American troops from Iraq by the end of this year:

    “Today marks a harmful and sad setback for the United States in the world. I respectfully disagree with the President: this decision will be viewed as a strategic victory for our enemies in the Middle East, especially the Iranian regime, which has worked relentlessly to ensure a full withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.
    During the Iraq Insurrection, we killed 6,000 Al Qaeda fighters in Iraq.

    When President G.W. Bush left office there were no Al Qaeda in Iraq.

    Guess what ?, Al Qaeda is back in Iraq today.

    She did that during the hearing and if I recall she said that congress had underfunded the State Department and refused to fund for more security at the embassies.

    Short of giving a direct order to do everything possible to help the personell under attack at Benghazi, what else would you have the president do?

    It might surprise you to know that a lot of people are capable of multi-tasking. Once Obama gave a direct order to Panetta, he had every right to assume it would be carried out. At that point, Panetta was responsible.

    My question is, where was the CIA during all this? Oh thats right, General Patreus was having an affair with a subordinate.


    We may not make it to 2016.

    The fight belongs to the States now.
    I don't trust the states, either.
