    How much traction does the Geeee Ohhh Peee think they are going to get out of quoting her out of context?
    This is a pathetic grasping at straws the OP has demonstrated in the wording of the poll choices putting words in her mouth that she didn't say.
    Don't you know already...
    Intellectual dishonesty and pretending to be stupid in general is the new litmus test for being a Republican.

    Anyone smart enough to know who Hillary Clinton is in the first place, knows the only scandal involved with Benghazi is the act of pretending it was a scandal.
    Republicans just like to pretend to be dumb asses. As if doing this is actually going to fool some dumb ass somewhere into joining their ranks.

    The Communists would never be involved at all unless the Americans made them do it, huh?

    Leftists have always had similar excuses for communist expansion throughout the world and. coincidentally. the fault was always with the Americans. Are they still teaching that crap in American schools?

    You watched the video and are responding to that?

    She lied. All politicians lie, especially progressives (between them and neo-cons, I don't know who's worse).

    Depends on who the GOP runs. If they push someone that actually energizes the base (No, Christie is not this person, he's Romney 2.0 and nobody will come out to vote), they won't run her. She'll get smoked. If they run an empty suit (again), here comes 8 years of Clinton.

    If they didn't know why and how these Americans were killed then they are not doing their job. But in fact they were told what was going on while the attack was taking place. Despite this they still claimed it was a variety of causes, including a video, and her outburst of "what difference at this point in time does it make' was an effort to stop the questions being asked. That is the only reason.

    In 1946 as the elected leader of the Democratic Republic of North Vietnam Ho Chi Minh sent a telegram to President Harry Truman asking for assistance in negotiation for freedom from French colonial rule. The telegram was ignored.
    Today's Document from the National Archives
    Ho was already associated with the communists but if Truman had lent a hand to the liberation of North Vietnam from the French Ho Chi Minh would have just as likely become allied with the US.
    His interest was to liberate his country from colonial rule. The communists were glad to have the opportunity and increased influence that Truman made possible.
    The North Vietnamese situation with Ho Chi Minh is contemporary to the Chinese situation with Chou En-Lai and Mao Tse Tung,.... For Vietnam, though, there wasn’t even a group of Americans in North Vietnam who deeply knew the situation, and not only the Soviets but also the French were intervening in the situation. Only deeper knowledge of the situation, a better counter to French pressure on the United States, and a reassessment of the importance of Vietnamese independence, would have saved Ho from the 1946 rebuff.
    Ho Chi Minh and Truman
    Both the Chinese communists and the US helped keep the Japanese invasion forces out of the North during WWII and Ho was grateful to both. You see Grant the communists were our allies during WWII. Truman however made a promise to President De Gaulle of France to stay out of all French colonies. The communists made no such promise and aided North Vietnam.
    Was it Truman's fault that Noth Vietnam became a communist state? Some would say yes ... but at the end of WWII the US had to decide where our priorities were and who would continue as our allies. Truman and his state dept. made the call and the rest is history.
    It's history Grant. You really ought to look into it.

    It is a valid question. What difference did it make whether Al Qaeda was planning to invade the compound in Benghazi that day or did they take advantage of the anti American frenzy whipped up by the video " Innocence of Muslims" that had recently been released. Eight other diplomatic missions were attacked in the same time frame as the Benghazi diplomatic mission attack and the subsequent attack on the CIA annex. The end result was the same, four Americans were tragically killed regardless of the reason for the attack.
    I believe the plans were already made to attack and the terrorists just changed their attack date to coincide with the protests that were wide spread across the region that day.
    That is all that Secretary Clinton was asking ... what difference did it make why they attacked when they did and the republicons leading the congressional hearing just kept belaboring the issue for no apparent reason.
    All the republcons got out of the entire affair is this out of context misquote we see in the poll in this thread.

    I don't really care if the cell phone industry is policing who they give their Bushphones to or not... It is not a tax payer funded program.

    The Republicans will continue to mention the debacle at Benghazi, along with Hillary Clinton's irresponsible handling of it, and somehow this will help Hillary Clinton?

    Are the electorate really that stupid?

    The reason their are the satellites,. spy agencies, etc is in order to reasonably predict what is happening around the world, especially oin areas . Are you trying to tell me that the same agencies that can send a drone to attack an Al Qaeda leader driving from a remote A to B can't, over a period of months, tell what what's going to happen in a danger zone despite numerous and repeated warnings?

    That's an eagerness to believe typical of those who tend to follow a Jim Jones or a Bernie Madoff.
