    You're just another who doesn't understand the difference between truth and opinion.

    Which is to read the entire context of what someone says? Yeah, I'm trying to get you to do the same. The problem is you refuse to read it without partisan blinders on.

    No, unlike many, I understand there IS a difference between truth and opinion. Facts can't be twisted, no matter how badly some people want them to be.

    And the fact is people are taking Clinton's quote out of context because they want to. It's just a fact.

    It is still a quote, and that is a fact.

    An out of context quote is worthless to anyone interested in truth.

    Yes, how awful I care about the context of what she said. It's so much easier to take it out of context and then act outraged over it.

    Your comments make me laugh so hard.

    There is no need to take it out of context to be outraged by it. Beyond her lack of compassion regarding the situation, her sheer ineptitude as a leader has been proven. Laugh at that.

    The only way to be outraged about her quote is to take it out of context. Unless you're outraged at her point that we should be doing everything we can to prevent it from happening again.

    Is that why you're outraged? Because Hillary thought they should spend time fixing the problems, not using the death of four Americans as a political football? So you're outraged at American lives possibly being saved?

    Really? You're outraged by that? That doesn't surprise me, you don't strike me as someone who cares nearly as much about safety of people as you do criticizing a Democrat.

    Nonsense. The "problems" were the direct result of decisions made by known individuals, yet the proposed "solutions" are to give these same inept morons more resources and leave them in charge of coming up with a new plan. What difference, with the same folks calling the shots, will that make?

    How can one ensure that it doesn't happen again when one (reportedly) doesn't know what happened to begin with? Or cares to find out.

    I'm outraged by the supreme incompetence that led to the situation, the incompetence and facile handling of the situation, and the cowardice and dishonesty in the aftermath.

    I'm not sure you understand what we were talking about. We were talking about how some people are taking Clinton's words out of context and using that to criticize her.

    They did at the time of the hearing. Why is this so hard for you?
    Or cares to find out.
    .....you do realize that's EXACTLY what Clinton was saying in her quote you refuse to put in context, right? That the panel should be far more interested in fixing the problem than worrying about what intelligence initially said was the cause?

    God, I can't stand partisan blinders.
