    when you have to use the freedom of information act to get documents the public is entitled to see, something doesn't appear to be right with those who have the documents.

    Sorry, it does matter what the issue is, the president no matter who it is will fight it. Bush did it, Obama does it and all future presidents will do it.

    they want all the documents related to the issue released by the administartion and the transparency the administration has promised.

    neither have happened.
    maybe those documents are top secret? given the fact the CIA is involved i would suspect a few things are not meant to be disclosed to the public.

    Should I really take your word for it that C-SPAN is right wing ?

    You no longer have any credibility making that claim.

    Ah, the go-to-the-well rhetoric: "to prevent _________ from ever happening again."

    Someone should make a Youtube video of all the times someone in the government has said that. Probably best to break it up into several parts because that video would be looonnnggg.

    Are the Republicans trying to exploit Benghazi for political gain? My answer at this point in time would be, sure they are. Now back in 2012 when Benghazi happened, do I believe the White House spin machine which was campaigning on Bin Laden is dead, GM is alive, tried to blame the attack on protesters who were mad about a video instead of admitting the attack was a pre-planned well organized attack by terrorist? Yep I believe that too.

    Call me a cynic, but when it comes to winning elections both parties view anything and everything fair game in their search for votes. There was a time when domestic politics ended at the water’s edge. I much prefer that era to today’s.

    I am in full agreement with Hillary on her statement: “It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again,”

    All the rest of this stuff is just politics of today as normal. I don’t pay any attention to it.
    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.

    Is that like using the 5th amendment?
    And do GOPs only get to do that also ?
