    Libs tried this over and over in the past but never mention which U.S. Embassies perimeters were actually breached and the Embassy buildings were attackers were able to enter the Embassy. They don't want you to know.

    You might want to do some real research without using a political bias website and use a credible source and get back to us and post which Embassies they were and under whose administration. I don't think you'll be surprised or maybe you will.

    The thing is, Neither the Carter, Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton or Bush 43 administrations ever lied to the American people and blamed an attack on a U.S. Embassy or outside of an Embassy on a youtube video.

    Good to know that you have no intention of being honest in your debates in the upcoming months.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    At this point, what diffrence does it make ?

    FYI: There will not be any debating on the DP, just a whole lot of flaming.

    You know quite well that only two people are capable of debating an issue. Four at the max.

They misquote what Clinton said during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Jan. 23, 2013, they say she said "What difference does it make?" Here is what she actually said:
    Actually the below indicates that Republicans are accurately utilizing the what difference does it make quote, as the "what differences does it make" is clearly used in reference to the preceding thought.

    Do Republicans care about the fact that our administration abandoned our people on the ground and then lied to the American people (including the families of the victims. to their face) about the nature of their death in order to win an election? I'd say probably. Are the party leadership more willing to pursue it because it also demonstrates that the administration is corrupt? Probably also that too.

    Me personally? I was pissed off then, and I'm pissed off now.


    "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator."
    This is one of the dumbest logic strings I've seen from a senior policymaker, bar Joe Biden, who can't really be held responsible for what the squirrels in his head tell him to say. Hey Hillary, guess what? KNOWING HOW IT HAPPENED IS SORT OF RELEVANT TO FIGURING OUT WHAT HAPPENED.

    As a single example, that Sept 12 2006 attack on our Embassy in Syria in which "four were killed":


    ...Four armed men attacked the U.S. Embassy on Tuesday, killing one Syrian security guard and wounding several people in what authorities said was an attempt by Islamic guerrillas to storm the diplomatic compound.

    Just after 10 a.m., gunmen yelling " Allahu akbar " -- "God is great" -- opened fire on the Syrian security officers who guard the outside of the embassy in Damascus's Rawda district, witnesses said. The attackers threw grenades at the compound, according to witnesses, and shot at the guards with assault rifles during the 15- to 20-minute clash, which left three of the gunmen dead and the fourth reportedly wounded.

    In addition to the slain security officer, another guard was wounded, along with a Chinese diplomat and several civilians, including seven Syrian workers and two Iraqis. No Americans were wounded, the embassy said in a statement....
    So... the "four dead" were one Syrian security officer and three of the attackers.

    Meaning that you are either claiming or didn't know that someone else had conned you into arguing that we should be upset that the attackers died.

    Then you have the first incident Phys251 listed, the Consulate in Kolkata. Strange that we don't even have an U.S. Consulate in Kolkata.

    >" Four police constables and a private security guard were killed and 20 other people injured when, on January 22, 2002, gunmen attacked an American cultural centre in Kolkata, India. The centre houses a library, the American embassy's public affairs office, a press section and a cultural wing.

    Two motorcycle-borne attackers, draped in shawls, sped up to the American Centre building at about 6:15 IST, refusing to stop at checkpoints and began shooting at police guards from an AK-47 assault rifle who returned fire. Four of the dead were Kolkata police constables while the one of the dead belonged to a private security agency Group Four. The constables killed in the attack were identified as Pijush Sarker, Ujjal Burman, Suresh Hembram and Anup Mondal and belonged to the 5th battalion of Kolkata Armed Police.

    Two groups claimed responsibility for the attack. A Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami (HUJI) member, Farhan Malik owned responsibility and said the attack was in protest against "the evil empire of America", while another person claiming to be a member of Asif Raza Commandos, a gang with ties to radical Islamic groups, claimed responsibility. Malik was also wanted in connection with a case of kidnapping a Kolkatta shoe baron Partha Paritam Roy Barman, who was later released on a ransom of 37.5 million..."<

    Lets not forget the last incident PHYS251 listed. The attack on the U.S. Embassy in Yemen in 2008.

    >"The attack began at 09:15 a.m. local time (06:15 a.m. UTC) when attackers dressed as policemen, armed with rocket-propelled grenades, automatic rifles, grenades, and car bombs, attacked the outer security ring at the entrance of the main gate from a car. The embassy, located in the Dhahr Himyar district of Sana'a, is located 250 meters (820 feet) from this security entrance. A 20-minute battle ensued between the terrorists and the embassy security force, during which some embassy security forces were fired upon by snipers from across the road. In the midst of the battle, a car bomb exploded at a second security ring of concrete blocks in an unsuccessful attempt to blow a hole in the wall. Up to five explosions may have occurred during the attack.

    Six members of the Yemeni security forces, six attackers (one of whom wore an explosives belt), and six civilians were killed in the attack. Though no Americans working at the embassy were injured or harmed during the attack."<

    Issa will get his clock cleaned soon enough by Kerry.

    Btw, I see people posting about 13 Benghazis for Bush.
    That means we'd need 52 separate committees in comparison to the House.

    Since Mitch is just filibustering, time for the Senate to get investigating .
