    That's because you could never attribute a quote to me so callously and cavalierly belittling the deaths of anyone, unlike all the ways you've found to belittle the deaths of mass shootings in order to feel good about the 2nd amendment. But I've dug up your history (with extreme ease, it should be said), so feel free to see if you can dig up anything so callous by me. Or you can just choose to run away and put me on ignore because you don't like how easy it is to call you on your lies. You care about the deaths of the four people in Benghazi as much as you care about the dead from all the mass shootings: none at all. Your own posting history proves it.

    there is no way i am going to accept the politically motivated crucifixion of this presidency that you are accepting without sufficient evidence confirming the absurdity of the claim. there are also reasons for not giving away the true idenity of the attackers. for example, did we really want to broadcast to the world the identity of the attackers and give them a reputation that they could build on?

    Well here.....Foresight was always the Administration's, Failing! Just saying.....hindsight has nothing to do with whats coming down.

    sir, the facts about the situation have been known for a long time and were known the day following the attack.

    Did we know how to put Benghazi in the big picture of what else was going on?

    Or is what happened in Benghazi the only thing relevant worth discussing?

    that's a common ploy for Democrats nowadays.... when they get caught up in shenanigans and don't want to answer questions, or face accountability... they just scream that those asking the questions are "politicizing the issue".

    Like her husband, she just simply believes she is untouchable.... and the rank and file Democrats, liberals, and progressives agree with her.

    That's Right MTM.....they have no way around. ALL News Sources have reported and accepted the fact thereof.


    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Throughout 2012, violent jihadist activity became increasingly commonplace in Benghazi and elsewhere throughout Libya and North Africa. At or near the U.S. mission in Benghazi, for instance, there were many acts of terrorism featuring the use of guns, improvised explosive devices, hand grenades, rocket-propelled grenades, and car-bombs, along with explicit threats against Americans issued by known terrorists like al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri. As a result of such developments, Ambassador Stevens and others at the U.S. mission in Benghazi repeatedly asked the Obama administration for increased security provisions during 2012, but these requests were denied or ignored.

    The Obama administration immediately and persistently characterized what had occurred in Benghazi not as an act of terrorism, but as a spontaneous, unplanned uprising that happened, coincidentally, to take place on the anniversary of 9/11. Moreover, the administration portrayed the attack as an event that had evolved from what began as a low-level protest against an obscure YouTube video that disparaged Muslims and their faith. In reality, however, within a few hours following the attack, U.S. intelligence agencies had already gained more than enough evidence to conclude unequivocally that the attack on the mission in Benghazi was a planned terrorist incident, not a spontaneous act carried out in reaction to a video. Indeed, the video had nothing whatsoever to do with the attack.....snip~

    “I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans. It’s just plain wrong, and it’s unworthy of our great country. Those who insist on politicizing the tragedy will have to do so without me.”

    Says Mrs. Clinton - this must be why she was nowhere to be found in the days/weeks following the 9/11/12 attacks in Benghazi and Susan Rice had to carry the administration's political lies instead of the woman who should have been front and center.

    I also find it funny that Pete says she doesn't want to politicize the death of four Americans while at the same time he says Clinton wants to get this incident out of the way before her run for the Presidential nomination.

    The loyalty of the blind is breathtaking.

    non relevant questions. more or less a deliberate distraction.

    since you think its irrelevant, why are you here discussing it?

    Given these realities, it is likely that the Obama administration's post-September 11 actions were aimed at drawing public attention away from a number of highly important facts:

    •the U.S. mission in Benghazi had never adopted adequate security measures;
    •the administration had ignored dozens of warning signs about growing Islamic extremism and jihadism in the region over a period of more than 6 months;
    •the administration, for political reasons, had ignored or denied repeated requests for extra security by American diplomats stationed in Benghazi;
    •the administration had failed to beef up security even for the anniversary of 9/11, a date of obvious significance to terrorists;
    •the administration, fully cognizant of what was happening on the ground during the September 11 attacks in Benghazi, nonetheless denied multiple calls for help by Americans who were stationed there;
    •the administration had been lying when, throughout the presidential election season, it relentlessly advanced the notion that "al Qaeda is on the run" and Islamic terrorism was in decline thanks to President Obama's policies;
    •the administration had hired members of the February 17th Martyrs' Brigade, a Libyan militia group with clear al Qaeda sympathies, to provide security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi; and
    •throughout 2011 and 2012 the administration had been lending its assistance to jihadists affiliated with al Qaeda, supposedly the organization that represented the prime focus of Obama's anti-terrorism efforts; moreover, some of those same jihadists had personally fought against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.....snip~


    Well.....looking at whats happening today inside Libya where we just issued an Immediate Warning telling All Civilian Americans to get out of Libya, and Have a Marine Unit ready to go in and get our Embassy People out. Which that Alert was issued Friday.

    Just what do you think is relevant in discussing why today in Libya is why it is?
