(NPR)   "There were times in our nation's past where, if our ambassador was killed, it was cause for going to war. We're treating it like it was a cause to, you know, go down and order a pizza. And that's just not - that's not right"   (npr.org) divider line 457

and that's what Hillary Clinton can do for *you* if she's elected President.
 
2013-02-20 05:27:21 PM  
Exactly!

That's why we went to war with Guatemala in 1968.

How many of our wars were declared over an ambassador's death?

Lt. Cheese Weasel: In before libtard Benghazi scandal deniers.


No, no.  Its a scandal.  And we'd love for you to tell us all the conspiracies and plots the president was personally involved in to cause it or cover it up, or whatever.

So please: proceed.

Just exactly who do you want to go to war with, subby? Of course, about the only thing you could do is start another Crusade.

On Tuesday night in Rock Hill, S.C., Republican Rep. Mick Mulvaney

One of the biggest Teatard moments in 2010 was when my congressional district voted out John Spratt (one of the most powerful congressmen at the time) for this guy

4 people die in Libya, and the GOP clutches their pearls and declares that "Something must be done about this!". 26 people die in a Connecticut school shooting, but gun control is "off the table". Makes sense....

Is it just a weird coincidence that I am getting banner ads for Pizza Hut in this thread?

Because I have to admit it is making me hungry for dead ambassador.

Pizza Hut is gross

I know I know.  All the cool kids use ad block.  Well this is America, and I believe in America we have to pay for what we use by looking at ads for stuff we will never buy because we are too cheap and/or it sucks.

Now get off my lawn.  I'm not afraid to spray you damn kids with this hose.

Rev.K: SHUT UP ABOUT BENGHAZI YOU IRAQ WAR SUPPORTING BAGS OF SH*T


Hillary voted for the Iraq War and was responsible for Benghazi.  Interesting that you made that connection.

That's the way to deal with trying to cover up a scandal - use all caps and bring Hillary's support of the Iraq War into this.

Bravo.

There's a difference between "responsible" and "at fault."  You're too much of a cretin to understand this, of course.

We did go to war for most of those too. We just fought that war against surrogates in afghanistan and iraq instead of in those countries where those embassies were attacked.

Watching Republicans hump the corpses of those killed at Benghazi is almost as disturbing as watching Giuliani hump the victims of 9-11.

But, I'm sure you all have double-seekrit, Gamma-clearance level info that proves that what happened is EXACTLY how you imagined it, right?

Some people seem to believe that dead Americans is a non-event. Your mileage may vary.
