    Re: Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?

    Would we or should we know when AQ gets captured? Aint anything secret anymore? I thought we were closing GITMO. How do you know there was no AQ operatives in any Med country in 2009, just thinking about it I would be that one is wrong. Which news sources? I doubt if AQ operatives put a lot of money in their retirement accounts. So basically more right wing noise machine...noise.

    The prison population at GITMO hasn't gotten any larger since 2009.

    Al Qaeda wasn't operating in any country along the Mediterranean Sea in 2009.

    As soon as Gaddafi was sodomized and murdered many news sources showed pictures of Al Qaeda's black flag flying over Libya.

    Was Obama lying to the American people in 2012 when he said that Al Qaeda was on the run ?

    Tell ya what. This is my preferred method. If I can use it without confusing people, maybe we'll both be happy.

    I see no contradiction whatsoever. It's like skating around a Montreal Canadian. Just use yer instincts.

    >>still hawking that video

    Just accepting the facts as they exist. You should try it. Saves time and helps avoid going off in foolish directions.

    >>Rather than respond to the rest of your run-on comment

    I don't ask for a response. I figure yer on the ground bleeding. But I do hope that you at least read my pearls of wisdom.

    Expect more of this to come, especially after they lose the november election. It will be poetic justice, treating the dems as they have treated republicans.

    I wonder how many politicians in DC harping on the issue actually know the names of the dead or have paid the fallen any form of actual respect.
    Not really, the dems have already demonstrated that they wont be forthcoming with any information they aren't FORCED BY LAW to provide.

    One way to deal with that, is to get those people voted out-to facilitate a more transparent govt.

Supersonic booms over that city every few minutes, until an in-extremis quick reaction force was there. Remember, at the time nobody knew who was alive or dead-we just knew Americans were under attack. And Obama stood down.

    Perhaps you feel that what was actually done-nothing at all-was the better option.

    Like I said, you appear fine with what happened-which was nothing.

    Like I said before, jets buzzing overhead means nothing, and the notion is ridiculous.

    Re: Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?

    A fly over is silly. Up till the election Faux was talking about troops, AC 130's, armed drones overhead and other assets that Obama refused to use because it would make him look bad, if any of that were true of course I would be outraged. But is appears to me this is all made up BS by the RW noise machine. Nothing I have seen since changes that.

    Supersonic booms over that city every few minutes, until an in-extremis quick reaction force was there to let everyone know the US was on the way. Even if it broke every window in benghazi. Remember, at the time nobody knew who was alive or dead-we just knew Americans were under attack. And Obama stood down.

    Isn't that painting with a very broad brush? Are you saying he always ignores the military? And again, what was it he ignored? They told him that AQ was morphing into small, scattered groups that are loosely affiliated. What has he done/not done to indicate that he ignored them?

    Clapper must have told him that, right? Even if he didn't, Obama would have read about his testimony before Congress to that effect, don't ya think? He doesn't ignore the NYT, I figure. That's where he gets hid left-wing talking points.

    >>And if Obama were have acknowledge to the American people that

    I think the voters knew what was going on. And I also believe AQ is on the run. To be honest, I think that if we had concentrated on Afghanistan and not fought a long, expensive, and unnecessary war in Iraq, we'd have a lot fewer dead and wounded military folks, a lot less money wasted on spending that provides no return on investment, and maybe even a less volatile Middle East.
