We don’t know who is telling the truth, but Hicks’ testimony forced Obama’s aides to make a devil’s choice between letting the allegations stand or calling a respected and long-serving diplomat, effectively, a liar. They chose the latter.....snip~

    Why Benghazi is a Blow to Obama and Clinton - NationalJournal.com

    Here’s the significance of Hicks’s testimony from a media standpoint: Whether he’s telling the truth or not, it’s now a story requiring further investigation. If he’s really the disgruntled axe-grinder Hillaryland will inevitably claim that he is, he’s effectively perjured himself on a matter of grave national-security import. If he’s telling the truth, then Hillary and her deputies retaliated against a decorated diplomat for the crime of questioning their initial bogus narrative about the attack. The public needs to know, either way. If the press refuses to pursue this, it’s essentially a green light to Obama’s administration to retaliate against future whistleblowers on the assumption that the dismissive “disgruntled employee” explanation will be accepted without checking too much into it. If you’re a manager in some government agency and your underling challenges you, demote him/her and then claim axe-grinding if he/she goes public. We’ll see tomorrow and Friday how much afflicting-of-the-comfortable our fearless media is up for.....snip~

    JB made the lacking point without the benefit of common sense. Thanks for not knowing about that, my brutha.

    Thank you. That may have been the clearest, most concise thing written on this matter to date, with two points of note:

    1) "....Both parties are wrong about Benghazi. Existing evidence does not point to a far-reaching cover-up on the scale of Watergate, as Republicans want you to believe. But it is not, as the White House claims, nothing...."

    2) "...Republicans would be wise to stop overreaching (“Every bit as damaging as Watergate,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said last week) and second-guessing decisions made in the fog of war. Most voters likely will accept the judgment of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who has said there was no way to provide military reinforcements in time...."

    We should realize this is substantially political: a preemptive attack on the Hillary 2016 campaign to knock down her credibility (and its probably working to some degree, as the aforementioned article states). In that regard, its fair game and a GAME that we have to respect is just going to get played. But, people would be wise to realize this is a game and not life, so don't take it seriously.

    actually, there is a need to keep repeating myself
    especially when the other side acts as if it has provided information which it has not
    no need to run from the truth

    We are expressing an opinion. You have expressed yours. If you have something new to add, then do so.

    I agree that there is currently no evidence that will satisify you.

    Threats Against Benghazi Whistleblowers Alleged [W:345]

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    and since i am more than willing to factor into my opinion facts in evidence, this tells us you have been able to offer none

    I can tell by your tone you are not interested in a civil discussion.
