If you want you can pretend I and everyone else that heard it are making it up, I really dont care, I know you know or you would not have asked. Fox embarrassed itself on this one, well maybe not as bad as the Obama's Katrina thing, but still.
    Those are allegations by Fox News?

    Also interesting about the ARB interview.
    A word about Toensing & her husband ... I remember them from a number of years ago ... they are a couple of tough hombres
    Yeah, and she has had some of the Highest Security clearances to interview and defend clients and they were giving her a hard time over clearance. But now all that cleared up Right away.

    The administration has had months to plan their response. I feel that underlings will probably blamed for this, even though the key players were all watching it happen in real time! It has already begun, IMO, since we have already been told that "there are so many requests coming into the State Department that it is impossible to give them all the attention they might need,." or words to that effect. ...sad...

    This bluffing the attackers is a stupid concept. Do you really think a group of battle hardened AQ killers are going to get scared and hide cause a jet flies over? Seriously? The Libya govt refused a flyover and it would not have done a damn thing anyway, the bad guys were too close to the good guys, maybe a helicopter but it would have required firepower, not bluffing. Bluff the attackers? yea that would have worked.

    Their response was to try to keep this guy from talking. That hasn't worked out too well.

    Perhaps our government didn't want us to know they'd refused a fly-over if that, in fact, is what they did. But we only gave them $1 million last year; maybe that isn't enough.

    Re: Huckabee: Benghazi will drive Obama from office

    Just thought I'd point out how disgusting it is to use photos of a dead or dying human being for personal or political gain. I see a lot of feigned outrage, but not much compassion or moral decency. You might as well have dragged him through the street yourself.

    I don't see how posting them is in the spirit of these of forums, which (as I understand it) is to promote civil discussions.

    I have a hard time believing that you listen to anything other than right-wing propoganda if you listen to "the voice". Sorry dude....but I ain't buying your line anymore than America is buying the Benghazi feigned outrage.

    Re: Huckabee: Benghazi will drive Obama from office

    Its funny to watch how the FauxNews crowd is "amazed" that America isn't buying the feigned Benghazi outrage....just like they were shocked after FauxNews told them that Romney was going to win in a landslide. Maybe rather than being "shocked" they should realize that they are being duped.
