    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.

    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.
    Remember waking up every morning back in 2003 and 2004 reading about American troops duking it out in bloody clashes against Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan ? NOT

    By 2003 Al Qeda had fled Afghanistan and fled to Yemen and the Taliban got their butts whooped and fled to Pakistan to lick their wounds for a few years waiting for the political climate to change in America before entering Afghanistan.

    Robert Gates’ Book “Duty” Confirms Influence of Advisor Samantha Power – Obama’s Advisers Were Talking About Military Options In Libya Without Consulting The Military…

    America's national security is in the hands of a community organizser who ignores the military.

    >" Gates acknowledges forthrightly in “Duty” that he did not reveal his dismay. “I never confronted Obama directly over what I (as well as [Hillary] Clinton, [then-CIA Director Leon] Panetta, and others) saw as the president’s determination that the White House tightly control every aspect of national security policy and even operations. His White House was by far the most centralized and controlling in national security of any I had seen since Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger ruled the roost.”

    It got so bad during internal debates over whether to intervene in Libya in 2011 that Gates says he felt compelled to deliver a “rant” because the White House staff was “talking about military options with the president without Defense being involved.”

    Gates says his instructions to the Pentagon were: “Don’t give the White House staff and [national security staff] too much information on the military options. They don’t understand it, and ‘experts’ like Samantha Power will decide when we should move militarily.” ..."<

    Arab spring has created 'intelligence disaster', warns former CIA bossMichael Scheuer says rendition should be brought back as lack of intelligence has left UK and US unable to monitor militants

    >" The Arab spring has "delighted al-Qaida" and caused "an intelligence disaster" for the US and Britain, the former head of the CIA unit in charge of pursuing Osama bin Laden has warned.

    Speaking at the Edinburgh international book festival, Michael Scheuer said: "The help we were getting from the Egyptian intelligence service, less so from the Tunisians but certainly from the Libyans and Lebanese, has dried up – either because of resentment at our governments stabbing their political leaders in the back, or because those who worked for the services have taken off in fear of being incarcerated or worse.

    "The amount of work that has devolved on US and British services is enormous, and the result is blindness in our ability to watch what's going on among militants."

    The Arab spring, he said, was "an intelligence disaster for the US and for Britain, and other European services"..."<

    I'd say its a typical joke. Why are you comparing Benghazi to Obama making a joke, is Benghazi a joke to you?

    What does a smirk to a person off camera by a former presidential candidate have to do with benghazi?

    Are we to infer by your photo, that Romney is somehow sinister or responsible for the President and his former secretary of state leaving Americans to die?

    Well it was at a press conference about Benghazi, right before the election where he spent the time speaking in a deep and sorrowful tone bemoaning the deaths of four Americans and how we deserve a President that can keep us safe, and then he smirked about it afterwards.

    In other words the sorrow was bull**** and he got caught using the tragedy for political purposes.

    Also no one left anyone to die even the House Republican committees that have investigated Benghazi 7 times now have stated flat out in their reports that no was left to die and that the military couldn't have changed the outcome of the situation.

    Again, you dont see whats off camera. You want an assumption to be made, that Romney wasn't being sincere. Its a pretty pathetic argument, which highlights the inability of the left to make a substantive response.

    Heres Obama smiling about the fast and the furious. Hundreds of people are dead because of his administration, and he cracks a grin. What does this mean?
