    You have faith in Dianne Feinstein - I have faith in President Bush and the CIA
    Why don't the Repugs get Daryl Issa to start a fact-finding report of their own? Of course only after he's finished with his 8th try at nailing some sort of Benghazi negligence.
    And no... I have faith in facts and the truth.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Yup. When one really thinks about it, it's exactly what happened. Sadly, Bin Laden has won.

    This is not the first time I have spoken of my intelligence career. Signals, imagery, and humint. And near the very end measurements and signatures.

    Perhaps they knew that treasonous democrats would one day be in a position to harm the nation. And them.

    Another asinine post. Liberals remember nothing inconvenient.
