    Is there any evidence besides a hunch to verify this? And even if we are engaged in some kind of clandestine deal, is that necessarily a bad thing? The reaction to the attack on the embassy sounds to me like people are trying to find malicious intent in the administration not reinforcing the embassy. I really don't think people act like that. Nor do I think that there was anything to differentiate the Lybian embassy's requests from anyone else's. I just don't see what anyone realistically expects to discover, nor how it would apparently prove that the president is some kind of traitor. It's difficult for me to understand why this (admittedly tragic) incident warranted this much attention.

    Not true...they are dead because of the movie. Didn't you pay attention?

    I have stories of wastefulness during my time in the military you would not believe. The mindset being, "what you don't use you lose," I have seen material discarded and, well, I've probably already said too much. You get the picture.

    Not if they are financed and supported by George Soros.

    It goes beyond my personal morals but our national ethics as an American.

    I suggest you stick with Fox News, and you might want to throw in a little Alex Jones now and then to spice it up a bit.

    Why does it have to prove he is traitor.....how about just that he dropped the ball. Was to busy Campaigning. Bottomline.....wasn't governing. Is it a crime? No! Does it prove Obama aint worth Spit as leader. Yes!

    See, to me that just proves that he's not perfect, which no one who exists outside of Clint Eastwood's brain thinks he is. Mistakes happen, and they're deadly mistakes when you have as much responsibility as a United States president. But nobody can be everywhere and dealing with everything at once. I don't see what would be out of the ordinary about the request for more security at this one embassy compared to the many other such requests that were also not granted. If you want to argue that there should generally be more security at embassies, or even just embassies in the Middle East, that's fine. I don't disagree. But none of that suggests impropriety or negligence on the part of the administration.

    I wish I could afford to drive a Benghazi.

    Maybe not impropriety but I would have to disagree on the negligence. Its' not like any would want anything to go wrong while they are on Watch. While I am sure Obama wasn't hoping the Country got hit. IMO he just wasn't as focused as he should have been. Since it was his narrative that was driving the war on terror.
