    I mentioned the former Secretary of State, because there are conspiracy theories being promoted of a "cover up" (no evidence from the official investigation) to "protect" her.

    If the same decisions were made and nobody died, would that make it OK with you? I suspect it would barely even be a story if that were the case. The criminality is based on the decisions made and the reasons for them, not the results.
    A desparate plea was made for help, and it was ignored. If that was not criminal, it was no doubt cowardly.

    Maybe, but no laws were broken.

    A question I've asked before, but nobody seems to have considered it. Assuming forces could get from the embassy in Tripoli across the gulf to Benghazi in time, wouldn't that have left the actual embassy at risk? If he knew it was a security risk, why would the ambassador go to Benghazi, especially knowing he'd be there on September 11?

    The Pickering and Mullen Report found, "systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels" of the State Department, which meant that security was "inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place."

    I find it hard to believe that Hillary knew nothing about the impending attack and refusal to send protection because of miscalculations and political reasons.

    Why, imagine that. Certainly, there's no room in an "objective analysis" for conspiracy theories. And a cover up? That would never happen. It was that damn movie that caused the furor.

    You don't. The 2nd sentence is just your opinion. In general, putting aside wording of explanations, a useful argument should contain compelling evidence. A good response should have compelling evidence. That is not the case with your response.

    Of course you are. He's vague, PC, and you share the same sense of balance: slightly to the Left.

    None of the polling responses accurately reflect the best of what's known. For a reference, one can start with the official review.

    http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/202446.pdf

    Of course, that assumes that the goal of the poll is to collect objective information related to people's understanding of what happened.
