    Soldiers want better guns and armor they don't get. Old people want free prescriptions. Thus isn't a scandal it is just a tragedy.
    Who else has asked for more security and been ignored?

    And of course this isn't about better guns and free prescriptions.

    it was a preventable tragedy.

    She said it was that many, but that's rather doubtful.

    What's the point of writing if no one reads the mail? Maybe 500,000 of those emails were from Benghazi asking for help.

    This woman reached her peak when she was first lady, and she only demonstrated at the hearing what Bill taught her,.

    Yes, they should have just ignored it rather than getting political and all.

It seems like you are talking about them together and confusing the issue.
    If they couldn't provide security because of budget cuts why didn't they just close up shop like the British did and save more money and not risk lives?

For me when I read something I try to understand the message or whatever point they are trying to make, then I analyze their reasons and motivations, etc. It's amazing to me how you could read the exact same material as me and come up with something completely different. They've done studies on this, on how partisans read the same newspaper and see different things. The mind of a partisan is truly fascinating to me.
    Re: partisans

    I don't represent the GOP. The last time I was on the RNC payroll was in the 1980's during the Reagan administration. I talk for no one, I don't represent any conservatives or talk for them. I only represent myself. My opinions and political ideology are mine and only mine.

    I've seen some on this forum label me as a "political hack" and they are clueless what a political hack is. If I were a political hack, my wallet would be thicker than it is.

    Your reading and comprehending why Bin Laden declared war on America. I pointed out where bin Laden believed he could get aweay with attacking America on it's own soil. We were already at war with Al Qaeda before the first Fatwa. The first Fatwa just made it a legal declaration of war.

    Remember, President Clinton declared that Al Qaeda wasn't a national security issue but a law enforcement issue.

    As for Bin Laden, he was a loony nut case.

    In hindsight I wish we captured Bin Laden instead of killing him. If I were POTUS and Bin Laden was captured I would have ordered that Bin Laden be water boarded five times per day just around prayer time just for the fun of it.

    I know something about fighting Islamist fanatics. Islam only respects the sword. And the only way you can subdue these Islamist extremest is with a bigger sword. Islam respects those who know how to use that sword better than them. I never fought and killed a Muslim on the battlefield, only Communist/socialist.

    Only two countries have ever won a war against Islamist fanatics on the battlefield, Great Britain and the USA. America did it during the Philippine Insurrection when fighting the Muslim Moro's. And how we defeated them isn't pretty and that's why you will not find it in the history books. Like most history, history is written from documents, interviews and personal diaries and journals that were kept by those during the time your researching.

    The history of defeating the Moro's in the P.I.'s is rarely touched by historians because it's so disturbing. Even revisionist historians rarely touch it. But how we did it is only found in the personal journals and diaries of the American soldiers and Marines who fought that war and the letters they sent home.

    Lets just say your not going to defeat Islamist terrorist, fanatics or Jihad soldiers with political correctness.

    Do you know what Bin Laden was expecting after 9/11 ? He was expecting that G.W. Bush would have launched a hundred Tomahawk cruise missiles and if we knew that he (Bin Laden) had some non combatant civilians near him he wouldn't be targeted. After launching the cruise missiles Bin Laden figured he would just become the FBI's problem. Remember that President Clinton had his chance to take out Bin Laden and ordered the military to stand down because Clinton was scared of collateral deaths of civilians.

    Fast track to 2003, Bush invades Iraq and the Muslim world craps it's pants. In fact all of America's enemies are scared crappless of G.W. Bush

    One of those enemies is Omar Qaddfi. Qaddafi decides to get out of the terrorism business and secretly contacts the USA. Qaddafi want to become an ally with the USA and defeat Al Qaeda. Qadaffi agrees to destroy all of his WMD's and dismantle his nuclear R&D project.

    Since the CIA was no longer allowed to use enhanced interrogation to prevent terrorist attacks on America, Qaddafi agrees to have the CIA to turn over captured suspected Al Qaeda members for enhanced interrogation by Qaddafi's intelligence service.

    Unknown to most of the world Libya has become an ally of the USA.

    Fast track 2009. Obama becomes POTUS. Obama ordered the CIA not to capture Al Qaeda to gather intelligence. Probably because Obama promised to close down GITMO and didn't want to keep adding more terrorist to GITMO's population.

    Fast track to 2012. CIA sends up a red flag because no Al Qaeda are being captured and interrogated, intelligence is drying up on Al Qaeda. That all of the intelligence that the Obama administration has been using was gathered during the Bush administration.

    Fast track a few more months. The Frogs want regime change in Libya. Maybe because they want a better contract for Libyan oil. The Frogs decide to make it a NATO issue. NATO runs out of bombs and need help from Obama. Obama decides since we no longer capture Al Qaeda to find out what they are planning, Obama ignores the War Powers Act and wages an illegal war to throw another ally under the bus.

    Qaddafi is captured and raped and then murdered.

    Fast track to 9/11/12. Al Qaeda militia now operating in Libya attack the American consulate in Benghazi and Obama does nothing while four Americans fight for their lives and are eventually killed.

    Hillary Clinton's e-mails ->Hillary Clinton's 'hacked' Benghazi emails: FULL RELEASE ? RT USA

    The second dump of Hillary's e-mails -> Guccifer releases second trove of Clinton emails ? RT USA
    Fast track...... this whole thing was a story worthy of a two week news cycle in Sept 2012. That is what it got. The two weeks have long since expired. This is now moldy old food in the back of the frige. It should have been tossed months ago. Throw it out as no one cares.

    We are talking about a White House cover up to get a President reelected. This cover up is bigger than Watergate and no Americans were killed during the Watergate cover up.

    It's a real shame when the MSM and liberals in America gives Obama "another pass" at the cost of Americans being killed.

    That's about how I feel. Unless there is a smoking gun found someplace like the Watergate tapes, there isn't many people paying attention.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    No, you are not correct that this story is moldy old food. The dead bodies of our Ambassador and others who were pleading for assistance demand an explanation as to what happened. Many people care very deeply about injustice. You may not be interested, and that is your right, but this is not going to go away. These were Americans serving their Country, and they were murdered by thugs! :

    Smoking gun like a disturbing photo of our Cn'C on the job in the White House Situation Room on 9-11-12 watching the same live feed from a UAV above Benghazi showing our consulate under attack. The same live feed that the U.S. military was watching at the same time at CENTCOM and at the Pentagon who already testified in Congress that they knew this was a planned attack while it was happening and had nothing to do with a You Tube video and were waiting for orders from the White House that never came ?
