The funny thing is how leftists react to the word Benghazi as if someone just gave them an atomic wedgie. Instinctively they know something went wrong that night, and the whole truth hasn't come out yet. Be patient. Soon it'll be funny^2.

[Ignoring the idiocy dripping from this rehash of debunked junk...] It's even worse than that - Congress gave a pre-emptive stand-down order when they refused to address the request for greater security funding! Somehow Obama tricked them into being useless hyper-partisan toolbags!! Does his insidiousness know no bounds, not even those of time and space?!?

Benghazi boils down to this: The State Department screwed up protecting it's people, so when they did get attacked, they tried to spin it as America's fault, because of that stupid First Amendment allowing "irresponsible Americans" to stir up the Muzzies.

That's what really sucks. OUR State Department trying to spin it as America bringing it on itself, WHEN THEY KNEW DAMM WELL it was an Al Quada attack.  It stinks of disloyalty to their fellow American citizens.

That's what I really hate about those goddam State Department Drones. These over educated, elitist PRINKS  constantly snicker at the America people, who give them the tax money for their way cool meetings, receptions, parties, etc. They run America down as they buddy up to foreign officials.

When Americans get in trouble abroad, the State Department looks the other way until CongressCritters scream and yell at them to DO THEIR JOBS. I've seen it happen over and over again. The State Department needs to understand the American People are their customers, not the assorted dictators/crooks they hob nob with.

The Republicans haven't mismanaged anything. It's just that Clinton's propaganda machine has been in full force since before day 1 orchestrating the cover-up.  It's hard to get accurate facts from those involved when they've been threatened by Washington insiders.  I've no doubt that President Obama had no idea about what was really happening--but there's no way Clinton did not. Didn't she advertise about who Americans wanted to get the middle of the night call?  This whole thing is an attempt to discredit Obama, likely in a way that improves Hillary's chances in 2016.  I hope he doesn't let her drag him down.  He should appoint a special prosecutor, someone non-partisan and trusted by all, to get to the bottom of this.

Look at it this way--the Clintons got away with Vince Foster, Whitewater, an extramarital affair and perjury, all while we knew full well they'd done it but were stymied by their incredibly cover-up apparatus. Obama couldn't convince people he was born in the country.  Heck, he was on the ropes about the whole birth certificate thing when the Republican governor of Hawaii stepped in a bailed him out.  It's not his fault--without a teleprompter, he's just a community organizer who bit off more than he bargained for.  Out of the two, who do you think really orchestrated this cover-up?

Sadly, much like before, this has been done so well we may never be able to prove it and in twenty years, people who don't remember will just think of it as 'one more conspiracy theory', despite H. R. Clinton being in her fifth term.

Babies were better off in the olden days when they were covered in tar, which is a natural substance that protects the blah skin.  These days they depend on the government to give them free chemicals, which makes them lazy and they hang around on the porch all day long.

some times, the problem w/ a political attack is that there is no there...there. Perhaps some of the confusion is in not seeing it as what it is to begin with - a political attack.

I see the "they could have sent fighter jets during the attack" posted everywhere.

It boggles the mind as to what they think could be done. How do you even consider dropping a bomb on or around a building when there are actually people you don't want to kill?

I'm not the one who needs help.

Example: Back in the 80's, an Iranian-American co-worker of mine was trying to get his brother into the States. His brother had managed to escape Iran and the tender mercies of Ayatolla Khomeni after the Islamic revolution and got as far as Italy. I listened to Azimi on the phone, calling the State Department over and over again, begging for help. They kept blowing him off.

Finally, I told Azimi to call his Senator and explain the situation. The State Department simply does not care about private American citizens. The Senator's staff live for this kind of thing, cause they know the State Department fears congress, because congress will do naughty things to them, like force them to fly economy class, thus the Senator (whoever the Pennsylvania senators were in 1986)  stuck his foot up the State Department's ass and Azimi's brother  was promptly flown to the states. Typical story.

I once needed an emergency ex-fil after my idiot step father got mixed up with some Islamic Indonesian gun runners shipping arms to the southern Philippines, and they were going to shoot *my ass* as a warning to him, so, once again, the state department was all "do we know you??" until my uncle called congress and I was out the next day without anybody knowing about it.

The State Department is staffed by tools. Period. Benghazi is even worse, because they dicked over THEIR OWN PEOPLE.

heap: just what is it you think is there that hasn't been covered dozens of times by now?


Probably nothing. The most realistic thing that they could have found was a trail of incompetence which explains the stone walling.

I seriously doubt they'd find a memo saying, "Can't save those guys, it could make me look bad, XOXOX Obama".

heap: Perhaps some of the confusion is in not seeing it as what it is to begin with - a political attack.


I agree with you. That's basically what this is, a political attack. And a bad one at that. What's amazing is even some Republican commentators realize the risk that this could backfire politically. But, whatever. Just have to sit back and watch the show. /shrug

You do know that 2 of the people who died were emergency response, right?

That being said, it is INCREDIBLY disrespectful to lie about their sacrifice in order to turn their deaths into a little partisan political news item.  If you were a decent person, you would be ashamed of yourself.
