    If it can be done while remaining debt free, I have no problem with that! I might even ask for a thing or two myself. Unfortunately it's being done here with a $17 trillion dollar debt! We should have asked Gadhafi his secret to success before we got rid of him. I might have even been willing to attend a seminar to learn how, but it's too late now! Meh...

Who was coming after us, threatening us, and creating all the Chaos in Benghazi and that part of Libya. The timelines with the War on Terror bears it for what it is.

    Then when he got caught in the lies.....he then admitted it was a Terrorist attack.
    benghazi would have been irellevent if we had thrown our entire support behind the libyan government and actually had troops on the ground.

    i blame the administration, the congress, and the selfishness of the american people for unable to provide support to the libyan people.

    i find it ironic that some people praise ghaddafi yet found justification for removing Saddam Hussein for essentially the same crime Ghadaffi committed.

    It takes a little of superior, holier than thou tone of her comment down a notch when we consider that it was she who sacrificed the four Americans.

    Even more than the weapons used by the attackers, her refusal to reinforce the defenses, refusal to plan for this contingency, refusal to understand the real world and refusal to put politics aside long enough to understand that while a political campaign is proceeding in the USA, the rest of world continues to operate as always.

    Reset my a$$.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Looks like she was worried to much about that gotcha moment.....rather than doing her job. Oh, and partying like BO.....as she said. An election was Right around the corner.

    But then when she showed up in Oct of 2011.....she made sure there was ample security. The Lefts silence also tells you that they know the Jig is up too.

    Hillary isn't a hope they have.

    What will people say knowing she never called back to check on her people.....to see if they made out Alive or not?

    the fact you are blaming them for caring more about a election is hypocritical because you cannot block out your partisan bias's.

    I like this next one in particular. "...while crying about the losses of a few." I guess a "few" deaths only matter if they're ambassadors killed by terrorists in a foreign land. Citizens killed in mass shootings? No sweat!



    Or on the significance of reports on mass shootings. Yep, the "big impacts" of victims of mass shootings are just hyped up.



    The reactions to mass shootings is "hysteria":



    Yikes, in this next one Calgun really does mourn 12 dead in one shooting (albeit instantly making it about the terrible antis). Guess I'm wrong about him after all. He'll definitely call for an investigation into laws that allow for the ease of acquiring them. Looks like I have some apologizing to do.



    Ha ha, just kidding. He goes on to call the victims of mass shootings statistically irrelevant compared to the deaths caused by governments. In fact, reading through Calgun's posts that was pretty much his primary theme.



    and...






    Yep, all that heartwarming soul searching from the side that wants an investigation into Benghazi.

    How so with 1/3rd of the Population supporting him and the African Union?


    In March 2011, American diplomat Christopher Stevens was stationed in Benghazi as the American liaison to Libya's “opposition” rebels—among whom were many al Qaeda-affiliated jihadists—who were fighting to topple the longstanding regime of President Muammar Qaddafi. Ambassador Stevens' task was to help coordinate covert U.S. assistance to these rebels.

    Following Qaddafi's fall from power in the summer of 2011, Ambassador Stevens was tasked with finding and securing the vast caches of powerful armaments which the Libyan dictator had amassed during his long reign. In turn, Stevens facilitated the transfer of these arms to the “opposition” rebels in Syria who were trying to topple yet another Arab dictator—Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. As in Libya, the rebels in Syria were likewise known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups. In addition to facilitating arms transfers, Stevens' duties also included the recruitment of Islamic jihadists from Libya and elsewhere in North Africa who were willing to personally go into combat against the Assad regime in Syria. The U.S. mission in Benghazi served as a headquarters from which all the aforementioned activities could be coordinated with officials and diplomats from such countries as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.

    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......snip~


    Now all we need.....is who gave Stevens that Order to go to Benghazi and meet that Turk Envoy. That Night.....and how did the Turk get out?

    would a man who really supported his people bomb them when they protested his regime?

    My sympathy for Ghaddafi is non-existant because of his involvement in lockerbie and what he did to his own people.

    his cult of personality doomed his country.
