I have seen quite a few investigations, some frivolous, other actually with the intent of finding out the truth. Some for just political reasons to make the other guy look bad. Not all investigations are over a Watergate or Irancontra. Perhaps I have become nothing more than an old cynic where cover ups and investigations have become sort of routine. Maybe I just do not trust congress regardless of controls it.

    Perhaps the simplest way to solve these things is to appoint and independent investigator with all the powers to enable him/her to get to the bottom of these things.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Kindly point out where I stated I was an expert? Does one need to be an expert to note that not all marines would leave behind wounded military?

    Understood, but the conclusion of an investigative body is not in and of itself proof of the investigation being justified. Much like the fact that just because an investigation can be beneficial or harmful politically does not mean the investigation in and of itself is invalid.

    Id love to see an independent investigator. From what Ive read, the select committee has appointed a non-politician to lead the proceedings.

    What assets were available to use to not leave anyone behind with? Besides flying a big noisy jet over to scare them terrorist. Try to come up with something with a little real evidence it was even available.

    Once again, you appear to not understand the context of the attacks. When the Obama administration decided to not send help-IT WAS NOT KNOWN WHO WAS ALIVE OR DEAD.

    Unless your contention that it didn't matter-and that at no point should a rescue have been attempted, or that there were no available rescue resources-and if that IS the case, you are making my case FOR an investigation-this can't happen again.

    Once again you cannot name one single asset that was available during the attack. Stop and think once in a while instead of going deaf in the noise machine.

    I heard the same thing. We'll see what happens, but I think for the time being most people that are not all that politically active are just saying ho hum.

    We dont know who was available, and if the answer found by this committee is that there were none-than that is a MAJOR lapse in judgement by the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton-and will need to be rectified so it doesn't happen again.

    Thank you. It took that long to admit you don't know what was available so you don't know if anyone was left behind or not. This is exactly what I am talking about, you just know RW noise.

    No do fast turbo. We dont know because the white house has been adversarial from the start. There were assets in Sicily that could have been there fairly quickly, and 2 ships arrived the next day. But there is much that has not been released, and thats why we need an investigation.

    Also, the response from the WH, and Clinton (who refused to cooperate) will also require investigation.

    We are going to find out what happened, I guarantee you that. In the mean time, instead of making excuses for leaving Americans to die because of bad policy, you might want to do some reading- 2012 Benghazi attack - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Note that this was a preventable attack, and that is why we need to find out what happened-to prevent it from happening again.
