    1. It isn't that they died overseas, it's that they were abandoned and then lied about.

    2. And yeah, they are different. For example, the four killed in Syria in 2006? One of them was a security guard and the other three were the terrorists attacking the embassy. Those 9 killed in Saudi Arabia? Five of them were local Saudis and four of them were the attackers. Sensing a pattern? Those five killed in Calcutta at the "Cultural Center"? All of them Indian. Mind you, one of those attacks seems to have killed a foreign service officer with a car-bomb along with 4 Pakistanis, but it turns it out that attack actually happened at a hotel. None of them are Embassies/Consulates/Etc. getting overrun by ground forces and then being abandoned, and then lied about.

    Whoever put that list together trusted no one would fact-check them. And as far as those willing to grab it to try to provide a tissue-paper defense for the administration, they were right.

    Absolutely. BTW, I think I saw you on the Penn and Teller Bull**** episode for reparations. Well done.

    Actually, yes there was. I saw the hearings on C-SPAN about the hundreds of WMD that were recovered in Iraq.

    But that certainly doesn't rule out the possibility that some of them were also taken to Syria.

    Hopefully that's why they lied about it. But the administration won't admit to that. They may have lied to congress for a much more nefarious reason.

    Whatever the case, congress needs to get to the bottom of why the administration repeatedly lied to congress. And since they can just lie even more in public with no repercussions the logical thing to do is put them under oath.

    They also need to get to the bottom of why Hillary's State Department put Stevens in the middle of Al Qaeda territory with woefully inadequate security. And why they were not given more security after repeatedly requesting it.

    And another thing. Obama said we would have no boots on the ground. That was a flat out lie.

    Agreed. Its time to find out what happened, why is the president of the "most transparent" administration ever known making things so hard? He could make a few phone calls to cooperate and everything will be illuminated.

    I think it was Obamas admin playing politics, as they so often and boldly do.

    I swear. It's like this is their only fig leaf and they're going to celebrate it no matter how translucent and full of holes it is demonstrated to be. Pointing out the laughable, desperate idiocy of that poster meme just bounces off them without making acknowledgement or even making a dent.


    How outraged are you that terrorists who attacked our embassy were killed? Me? I'll admit, not very.

    it is sad that the repubs are talking about bengazi and it is Hillary's fault when at the same time when the dems ask for more funding for protection of diplomats the repubs said no....that is completely sad for so called adults to do this

    maybe we should ask the right, how they plan on winning a War on Terror, even if only through attrition, without wartime tax rates.
