    Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?


    Politically speaking, they'd be foolish not to.... but it is also a real issue and a real question as to why this happened and why help wasn't sent in time.

    Testimony from people on the ground, from Hillary Clinton, from state dept staff, from military leaders, and so on. The only constant has been the delays and dancing of the left. A select committee has more teeth, we are going to extract the facts out of these liberals, they can't play politics with dead Americans.

    You are wrong again-the point is that both Obama and Hillary had a very potent reason to obscure the events-which is why they did it.

    I believe it may be less fiscally responsible to wage a War on any Thing, without wartime tax rates to prove fiscal forms of responsibility.

They misquote what Clinton said during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Jan. 23, 2013, they say she said "What difference does it make?" Here is what she actually said:

    "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator."
    In full context it's actually worse than in the short version. It will prevent her from being elected POTUS. Nonetheless, Repubs are acting to exploit the issue. They are acting in response to an administration that has refused to treat the episode honestly.

    Have anything relevant?
    I do recall how obsessed you progressives were over the phony Valerie Plame scandal. What's your problem?

    A lack of fiscal responsibility from the right.

    Al Qaeda was on the run and by 2008 were basically confined to Yemen, the Horn of Africa and northern Pakistan.

    During the first three years of the Obama administration, Al Qaeda did go on the run, running all over the Middle East and North Africa expanding their base of operations in almost every country in the Middle East and North Africa.

    Approximately nine months before the Benghazi murders, the CIA informed President Obama that Al Qaeda is back more dangerous than three years ago and are expanding their base of operations all over the Middle East and North Africa.

    Approximately three yeas ago a whistle blower with in the CIA said that the Obama administration war against terrorism has been working off intelligence gathered during the Bush administration and it was drying up fast. That the Obama administration has been using UAV's with Hellfire missiles to kill Al Qaeda leadership instead of capturing them to gather intelligence.

    The intelligence that led to finding Osama bin Laden was gathered during the Bush administration, not during the Obama administration.

    Foreign intelligence services reported that Bin Laden was so hot that Al Qaeda forced Bin Laden into retirement before 2004. Since Bin Laden's millions of dollars of assesses were frozen during the early years during the Bush administration, they had no use for Bin Laden. Bin Laden couldn't finance any more attacks against America on it's own soil.

    The top ten leaders of Al Qaeda on 9-11-01, eight were either killed or captured including #2. the mastermind of 9-11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed during the Bush administration. When Obama entered the White House only #1 and #10 of the original top leaders of Al Qaeda were still at large. Soon #10 was killed and then #1, Bin Laden was killed.

    Should be noted that 6,000 Al Qaeda fighters were killed in Iraq during the Iraq Insurrection. When Bush left the White House there was no Al Qaeda in Iraq, again Al Qaeda had been confined to Yemen, the Horn of Africa and northern Pakistan. Today Al Qaeda is back in Iraq. Al Qaedda is all over the ****ing place today.

    Obama is a liar. Be it that Al Qaeda is being decimated and on the run, or closing down GITMO or if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.

    I am not surprised at all with your response Jack.

    All Hillary has to do is admit she was an incompetent Secretary of State and all Obama has to do is admit on the night of the Benghazi attacks that he was derelict in his duties as CnC.

    There wouldn't be any need for hearings and investigations by Congress and could be chalked up as lessons learned and lets not let it happen again.
