    Yea, I used to look at fox nation every once in a while, but I got so tired of being absolutely shocked by breaking news only to find out that nothing actually happened.

    The absolutely funniest thing is when you see them put up a headline like "Conservative demolishes Liberal in debate!", then you go to dailykos or crooksandliars to see them have the exact same video up with the title "Liberal destroys Conservative in debate!". It makes me giggle, lol.

    I believe this to be true - that doesn't, however, obscure the facts around Obama and his administration slow walking the truth and flat out lying in order to save his Presidency.

    As is so obvious on this thread, the childlike loons have emotionally chosen their heros to worship forever and there is nothing in the world, in all of human history that would change their closed and padlocked minds.

    The slightest criticism of their sacred Ones sends them into fits of blind rage and tempter tantrums. They love Hillary more than life itself and they will tolerate not the slightest deviation from total adulation of all that Hillary says and does. Truth and right be damned. Hillary is a saint in their religion of Liberalism.

    Yes, we all adore her, which is why she beat Obama in the 2008 election.

    You can't just argue that any prominent liberal is "worshiped" simply because sometimes people defend them, or because they might be popular. It's a silly argument.

    If you had a reason not to believe that response then I'd be interested to hear it, but you do actually have to address it before you can just assume she lied, or was wrong, as you have in this post.
    Well, for one Hillary cannot state under Oath that she had no knowledge of any Specific security requests and then Later testify that she receives 1000 of requests and pieces of mail that come across her desk. Moreover she has a budget that she has to go thru and in this case was keenly aware that she had signed off on lessening security for that Specific Consulate.


    -Reductions of security levels prior to the attacks in Benghazi were approved at the highest levels of the State Department, up to and including Secretary Clinton. This fact contradicts her testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on January 23, 2013.

    -In the days following the attacks, White House and senior State Department officials altered accurate talking points drafted by the Intelligence Community in order to protect the State Department.

    -Contrary to Administration rhetoric, the talking points were not edited to protect classified information. Concern for classified information is never mentioned in email traffic among senior Administration officials.

    The problem there, however, is that there’s a chance Hillary’s political cred isn’t the unassailable fortress of awesome that some might presume, especially if the “highest levels of the state department,” cough cough, were willfully negligent about providing adequate security to the consulate:

    After the U.S.-backed Libyan revolution ended the Gadhafi regime, the U.S. government did not deploy sufficient U.S. security elements to protect U.S. interests and personnel that remained on the ground. Senior State Department officials knew that the threat environment in Benghazi was high and that the Benghazi compound was vulnerable and unable to withstand an attack, yet the department continued to systematically withdraw security personnel. Repeated requests for additional security were denied at the highest levels of the State Department. For example, an April 2012 State Department cable bearing Secretary Hillary Clinton’s signature acknowledged then-Ambassador Cretz’s formal request for additional security assets but ordered the withdrawal of security elements to proceed as planned.....snip~

    I agree, and said we shouldn't join in. But Obama gave into EU whining.

    If that was the case then all Americans there, as with the British and the Red Cross, should have been removed. Was Hillary not informed that these people were pulled out as well?

    I do not understand what it is that detractors think they'll find in all this Benghazi stuff. Do they really expect to find evidence of the president cackling like Mr. Burns, declaring that he's refusing to send more people to the consulate in the hopes that everyone will die? Do they expect to find Clinton doing the same? Are they really so far removed from the rest of the human race that they think that a Democratic administration is composed of cartoon villains who sit around all day laughing about kicking puppies?

    Save his presidency from what? From there not being room in a budget to prioritize one embassy over others? From terrorists committing terrorism and us not having a stranglehold on every square inch of the world to stop every psycho from doing every psycho thing?

    perhaps Hillary should have put a stop to everyone using her signature. Wouldn't that have been the smart thing to do?

    It means her signature has no value whatsoever, and she freely admits it on order to get out of a scrape.

    Let me try the supportive "Sarah Palin-like" response. Boy, the right wing nut-bags must really feel threatened by this woman as displayed in their hateful posts.
