    And nobody has ever been able to tell me what, exactly, they "covered up."

    There's no proof it was a lie, or at least not burden of proof. Nothings changed, and while I synthasize with your struggle, I'll let you into a secret. The GOP, will be torn down if they keep pursuing this path. Currently, the Benghazi scandal is hurting the GOP more than the Democratic Party.

    3000 died when Bush lied. You're crying over 4 dead and can't even prove anyone lied.

    Actually A) we know that the administration lied, because we knew that they knew at the time that it wasn't a youtube video protest, but that it had been clear from the get-go that it was an organized assault by the local al-qaeda affiliate, and B) Bush didn't lie, he was wrong. He was joined in being wrong by Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, John Kerry, and virtually every major leader of the Democrat party from that time period and just before hand, as well as the Intelligence Community of every major western power, but he was still wrong.

    Besides, in the end, the original talking points released on 912 were shown to be pretty close to the exact events on 9-11-2012. They certainly were a lot more accurate than the GWB talking points originally released on 911 back in 2001, which certainly did not include the fact that Bush sat frozen in a classroom full of school children while the tallest building's in America's largest city burned.
    Yep, he invented them.

    And the Bush crap is played out bro. Give it a rest. I'd like to have seen your reaction if the largest terrorist attack the world had ever seen occurred while you were the most powerful man in the world and the attack occurred on the very soil that makes you that powerful. I don't care who was POTUS at that point, they would receive a pass for anything less that running out of that room screaming like a mad man. I thought Bush handled as good as could be expected.

    Clinton, Kerry and all of us were hoodwinked by the lies comming out of the administration. After all, it was Bush, Cheney, Powell and Rice who went on TV warning us of mushroom clouds. Pure BS is what it was.

    Bush lied, thousands died. And, you all whine over 4 dead in Libya.

    Bush looked like he popped his pants. I saw the video. But, I'm not surprised you'd still say that.

    Actually, I wasn't a Bush supporter bud. Nice try though. I was a member of the Tea Party back when it started under the Bush Administration (yes, it's true). I don't care if it's Bush, Clinton, Obama, whoever. That is a tough hand he was dealt. I felt the same way about the Boston Marathon for Pres Obama. Politics go to the wayside when a guy has to lead us through a tough stretch.

    actually they all had access to the same information. furthermore, the claims about Saddam's WMD programs pre-existed the Bush administration, and were part of the Clinton Administrations decision to change U.S. policy to that of regime change .

    After all, it was Bush, Cheney, Powell and Rice who went on TV warning us of mushroom clouds. Pure BS is what it was.
    I don't recall the mushroom clouds (i recall a lot about chem/bio and some about dirty bombs), but no, it wasn't pure B.S. Firstly because we found both uranium and chemical weapons in Iraq, and Secondly because it was the opinion of the IC that there were active production lines ongoing in Iraq at the time, protected by a significant (and previously successful) D&D campaign by a regime skilled in that technique. And not just our own IC, but that of our allies and even our not-so-allies.

    Bush lied, thousands died.
    I realize that's a handy bumper sticker. It merely lacks what Henry Kissinger used to call "the added benefit of being true".
