1.  Republicans proposed and then voted to slash funding for security.
2.  Stevens refused additional military security twice.

I want these points hammered home by the "liberal MSM mainstream media" until Republicans and their voters choke on them.

This isn't a "theory." People die of smoke inhalation all the time. I'm guessing she means that it was a byproduct of the attacks rather than a specific assassination attempt. I don't know how anyone could know that unless they are privy to the operational strategies of the attackers. But usually when Qaedans like Ansar al Sharia attack a CIA base, they are probably trying to destroy it and kill everyone inside. That is sort of the point. So I think its dumb to try to make an argument Ambassador Stevens wasn't "murdered." Every victim of a terrorist attack is in the larger sense, murdered. Even if it wasn't an assassination attempt.

Has the Republicans' latest investigation turned up anything that hasn't been known for almost two years yet?

SlothB77: Um, no she didn't.  if anything, her mental gymnastics to avoid calling it a murder or assassination just perpetuates the aura that there was a concerted effort of cover up at work here.  the way she describes it, Stevens died in an accidental fire.

An extreme and simplified contrast to highlight the other side's extreme and simplified characterization, as I said.

This is no more than differentiating a cause of death from the cause of the accident.  You don't list "train" as the cause of death if you're hit by a train.  Similarly, you wouldn't list "terrorism."
