    Of course, it's very easy to capture these people. You just go out there with a butterfly net, right? And how much of an expert on counterintelligence in this specific area are you? What intelligence should we be risking American lives to gather?

    Have you ever heard of a place called Guantanamo Bay Naval Base ? U.S. Marines called it GITMO.

    After 9-11-01 during the Bush administration the U.S. needed a place to incarcerate captured terrorist off of U.S. soil so liberals and the ACLU wouldn't be intervening in behalf of Al Qaeda demanding that terrorist be protected by the Constitution. GITMO seemed to be the place.

    558 suspected terrorist, Al Qaeda leaders and unlawful combatants including the mastermind of 9-11-01 were captured and sent to GITMO.

    How many were captured during the Obama administration ? 0

    How easy is it to capture "these people"? I suppose it depends how competent an Executive administration is.

    Do you think maybe Obama was in the gun running business ?

    Barack Obama has been recognised as the best gun salesman of the year for the past six years and he's shoe in for 2014.

    Yes, I know. When I said "[i]t was a CIA station," I was referring to the location where Stevens was killed.

    That [When Bush invaded Iraq, there was no operational AQ in Iraq.] is one of the most often told lies of the LWNJs. AQ was in Iraq. Anyone who says different is a lying anti-USA zealot.
    Looks like you've got a real scoop there. As I noted, the Pentagon says it.

    Exhaustive review finds no link between Saddam and al Qaida

    I think you really should spread the word that the people over there at the Institute for Defense Analyses are "LWNJs" and "lying anti-USA zealots."

    Here's their report: Iraqi Perspectives Project Saddam and Terrorism: Emerging Insights from Captured Iraqi Documents. I'm not gonna read it, now that I know it has no credibility.

    Oh, I'd say it's difficult under any circumstances. But you didn't answer my question: what intelligence should we be risking American lives to gather?

    I mean, you seem to know that it's worth it. So I thought I'd ask what it is we'd be after. Or is this just some more mindless criticism like all the rest of it?

    If Obama wouldn't have told the CIA to stop capturing Al Qaeda for gathering intelligence, maybe Obama would have learned back in 2011 that Al Qaeda has grown in size, is more dangerous today, were no longer confined to Yemen and the Horn of Africa as they were in 2008 and have spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa expanding their base of operations.

    A few years ago the CIA warned the Obama administration that Obama's war against terrorism has been relying solely on intelligence gathered during the Bush administration and that the intelligence was drying up fast.

    Along with any innocent bystanders who are within range of a Hellfire fragments.

    What was the Obama's administration's response when they discovered how many innocent people were having their asses blown off the map ? They changed the definition of who's a combatant. If your closed enough to be killed or wounded by a Hellfire missile, the Obama administration now classifies you as a combatant.

    Do your own research.

    I myself could care less.

    I'm leaning with the internationalist lawyers who pointed out that Obama is writing the rules on how UAV's (aka drones) can be used. If the USA can conduct hellfire attacks over soverign nations so can any other country.

    If some Chinese is wanted by the PRC and seeks asylum in America, the rules now are that China could fire a missile from a UAV at the person sitting on a bus bench on Main St. USA. Obama wrote those rules. According to Obama, any innocent American killed near the bus bench are combatants.

    Within the next ten years, 150 countries will be operating UAV's.
    Do your own research.

    I guess maybe I don't. It looks like yer sarcastically suggesting that I responded to too many comments by others. My suggestion would be that you stop reading my posts if yer finding that I've included too many responses. Or did I misunderstand you?

    So which is it? Does it make no difference why the 4 Americans were killed or who did it ? ... or is the job is to figure out that very thing? Can't do the latter if you believe the former.
    I think I can answer that. The Secretary was saying that we need to focus more on doing "everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again" than on some ridiculous, partisan exercise of trying to identify exactly who, in what agency, at what time, for what purpose, after perhaps consulting with which individuals, in which agencies, at what time made each specific edit to a document that has no real importance whatsoever.

    We all now know why the document took the shape it did and why the edits were made. Local media reports based on interviews with some of the terrorists involved in the attack alluded to the video a video that, whether you like it or not, was the cause of protests in a number of countries in the region at that time. I'd say it makes sense that some of the terrorists would mention it. Many Muslims found the video offensive. You would certainly expect fanatical extremists to be offended as well. In fact, they might try to use the video to justify their violent murder of Americans in the city.

    There was some anger and confusion going on between State and CIA. Something really terrible had happened. A situation that arguably should not have existed (CIA operations of a particular nature being run out of what was supposed to be a diplomatic facility) may have contributed to that tragedy. People in the WH tried to smooth things over by allowing both agencies to delete anything and everything they didn't like from the talking points memo.

    Only partisan hacks who vehemently opposed Obama's candidacy, much less presidency, would even consider trying to turn some watered-down statements delivered on Sunday talk shows into one of the worst scandals in American political history.

    The reason Republicans are going to take yet another beating on this investigation is twofold: first, nothing will come of it, but really much more importantly, everybody in the country knows about Certificategate, Wrightgate, Ayersgate, Muslimgate, Terrorist Sympathizergate, Not Really a lLaw Professorgate, Did Poorly in Schoolgate, Forced To Give Up His Law Licensegate, and on and on.

    About how he's the worst president ever. He's an inveterate liar. He can't speak coherently without a teleprompter. He's really not smart at all. His wife goes on multi-million-dollar shopping sprees with government credit cards. He murdered his grandmother and his gay lover. He wants to destroy America. He's both a communist and a fascist, a rather impressive feat. He didn't write those books. He refuses to lift a finger to work with the Republicans in the Congress. He's weak, feckless, indecisive, desperate, flailing, panicking. He's a coward. The military hates him and he forced a hundred senior officers out to serve his political ends. He stole the election, I mean both elections. The media covers up for him. He uses the IRS to attack his political opponents. He effectively rules as a dictatot through executive orders.

    Well, I figure I at least hit some of the highlights. There is no wolf.

    Meanwhile, the people that have cajoled, threatened, and harassed Boehner into appointing this committee are the same ones that block efforts to enact legislation the voters support on immigration reform and raising the minimum wage.

    And the rest of her comment reiterated that contradiction.
    In what way?

    'Two days after this attack,' said Rep. Adam Kinzinger, 'we were in a briefing with Hillary Clinton and she screamed
    Hearsay. Why hasn't anyone backed him up on what happened? Just more grist for the right-wing media mill.

    O.M.G. Really? Don't they have any people knowledgeable about the "legality" of what's going on in DC? I think they're called "watchdogs?"

    Stevens was not killed at the CIA station. He was already dead when the CIA station was attacked by AQ terrorists.

    No. It is well known and documented history. Not a scoop.

    Yes, I do understand that sometimes very idiotic LWNJ's somehow equate rumors that Saddam was not controlling AQ in Iraq to somehow mean that AQ was not in Iraq at all. But that is a totally illogical assumption. Saddam Hussein did not control very large areas of northern Iraq in 2003. AQ did control some of those areas. Therefore, any piece of crap LWNJ who claims that AQ was not in Iraq is simply an anti-USA zealot who cannot keep his lips off of their socialist hero, Saddam Hussein's, penis even many years after that sick ****er was hanged. It seems like the LWNJs of sites like this are trying to mummify and worship Saddam Hussein's penis in their collective mouths.
