    Again, the flyover thing might work on an Amazon tribe that had never seen planes before...What evidence do you have there was anything to stand down. All I have seen was 2 ex seals that would have just died too. What was there that could be used and wasn't?

    Again, you appear to lack context. WE DID NOT KNOW WHO WAS ALIVE OR DEAD AS THIS WAS GOING ON. We knew the Presidents personal representative, and other Americans were under attack, one that lasted for hours-and at no point was help sent. There are reports that some of those men were actually painting enemy forces with laser designators (these guys were ex special forces) in hope of help that never came.

    We had air assets on the north coast of Africa, and a quick reaction force in Italy-and they never were sent.

    And your amazon tribe comment is silly. These AQ guys know what American airpower can mean to them, they would not know if they were going to attack, they did not know if this meant American ground forces were inbound. It may have cut short the attack and saved American lives. We will never know-but what we do know-is that Obama never sent help, despite repeated requests EVEN DURING THE ATTACK, and that everyone there died.

    Its remarkable how nonchalantly you would write off the lives of these Americans. Perhaps this is why you dont understand the fuss being made about Benghazi...but in any case, the people responsible will be made to know.

    No, you are delusional about how big the world is and how many assets we have. Any time you hear or see, "there were reports" quit listening. There have been reports of Sasquatch's in Ohio too.

    Ah, but this gets to the heart of the matter-the Obama admin has threatened everyone who was there. They can't talk, and those that do often talk off record and anonymously. And beyond that-the admin has been anything but transparent, again they only give up the information AFTER being threatened with lawsuits. Thats exactly why this select committee has been formed-because it has teeth, and the administration wont talk.

    Re: Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?

    Again is there really any evidence there is any more than usual secrecy in this case than normal? I would think a whole lot about this might be classified. That does remind me, supposed the WH was moving people around so Fox News could not find them. I would think they have "found" them all by now. What ever came of that. Man, seriously quit just listening to RW noise sources and/or think about what they are saying. Of course there are secrets and federal employees are always told not to talk to the press but refer them to the PAO. I guess we will see what comes from the what? 8th or 15th or something like that committee.

    What is this gibberish about moving them around? This isnt hide and go seek, the people who were there-have been told by the Obama admin that they are not to talk to anyone.

    And as far as if this is the "normal" amount of secrecy, thats just another thing a select committee might determine.

    Re: Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?

    Yea, that is what I thought too. More right wing noise. Anyway, federal employees are ALWAYS told not to talk to the press. Always. So this is one of those things that is kinda true, yes the orders are not to talk to the press, refer the press to the PAO. The untrue part is it is Obama trying to hide the truth. See how that works?

    And you know this how, exactly? Especially considering his stall tactics and refusal to give up information except when forced by law.

    What we know-is that every time we get this information, it contradicts his administration.

    Re: Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?

    You are right, I don't know Obama is not trying to hide something. Good, exactly what I was trying to say, think about what people are telling you. Now try to think about the long standing rules that federal employees are to refer the press to the PAO. Does that mean Obama is trying to hide something? Or is it just what has always been the rule?

    Re: Are Republicans Exploiting Benghazi?

    With the DP stats showing roughly 70% of us believing this is just another GOP crises being shoved down their throats, the question begs to be asked. Is the GOP paying any attention to these numbers and how many of those 70% think that using this tragedy, for political points, downright despicable.

    I wonder how DP numbers stack up with other polls on the topic?

    Let's GOOGLE!!

    http:http://www.publicpolicypolling....enghazi.html//

    Poll: Public not misled on Benghazi - Bobby Cervantes - POLITICO.com

    Lots of polls on Benghazi. But not many asking the question regarding the GOP dragging these bodies through the mud to score points. But I did find one article/video clip saying that some victim families have asked them to stop.

    But one thing for sure, stats suggest that most people do agree that Obama, et al, handled it badly. But guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors? Meh. Not so much.

    It appears that the GOP politicizing this is more unpopular than the way the attack was handled.

    Will look more later. PIZZA TIME!
