    So, to simplify all this, the right hand didnt know what the left hand was doing? Sounds like a typical government branch here. Business as usual, and generally ends in disaster.

    And you wonder why Clinton is faking sick? How many scandals that result in the loss of life are we going to see before America wakes up and realizes that Obama is the absolute worst president in United States history?the entire Obama administration needs to be impeached from Eric Holder to Hilary Clinton.

      100% correct. Just one more case from this bunch of amateurs of total inefficientcy, then stonewalling, then coverup.

      Pete, first of all, yes they did find the wmds, 300,000 kurds buried in mass graves but you won't look at the forensic evidence you want the bomb. The bomb was used there is the dead bodies. Next, by your reasoning we should have never gone after Hitler, he had nothing to do with pearl harbor and only committed the same crimes as Saddam Hussein- genocide. Finally do you think we cared that civilians were killed when we dropped the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? That's why we can't win this war, we have pansies like you and your failure of a president telling the generals that they can't even tell a muslim pedophilia is wrong. That's right the Obama administration wants to fight a war by singing koom by ya with child molestors.

      So....the US charges in to stop Hussein's genocide, and stops it: to the tune of 400,000 more Iraqi's killed.
      Brilliant.
      Totally justified, according to Aunt Madeline Albright.

      The US entered the war because PH was attacked.
      They knew what Hitler was doing long before they entered the war.
      Once they did, they fought for the Allies, but they didn't go into the war because of Hitler.
      They dropped the bombs because of the continued threat by J a pan, and because J a pan refused to surrender.
      By that time, Hitleer was dead and gone.
      Again, the US didn't enter the war because of Hitler.

      Yes I am aware of all of that Banasy, that's exactly my point. Hitler had nothing to do with Pearl Harbor, Hussein had nothing to do with 9/11 that you know of. We didn't enter WW2 because of hitler and we didn't enter the war on terror because of Hussein. But we would have taken Hitler out just like we did Hussein if given the chance. Hitler was the most protected man in history. Have you ever heard of D-Day? We didn't join the allied forces, the allied forces joined us. We lead the charge and kicked the whole world's butt. They don't call WW2 vets the "greatest generation" for no reason.

    ummm no, i did NOT wonder why she was faking sick! She fell, and hit her head, in front of witnesses. And educated DOCTORS diagnosed her! Now i should wonder because an UNeducated wannabe doctor says shes faking? Seriously?

    Mrs. Clinton said not to long after Benghazi that she owns the mistakes made there.
    Why?
    Because she is a solid upright SoS, and she will be missed.

    I wonder why cnn deleted most of the article they had up last night? It was quite lengthy and more detailed about that ambassidor and his comings and goings at his own discretion! Like he did what he wanted, when he wanted and where he wanted.

      Chrissy, perhaps they like all the anti-Obama rhetoric that will surely follow.

    Usually the Ambassador does and goes where they choose, but normally within the guidelines provided by the host country. Personally, I think it was premature to have full diplomatic relations with Libya which has a very weak central government with much of the country controlled by various splinter groups and tribal militias which were not necessarily friendly to the US or the central political factions!

    I understand that @ PT, but according to the article posted last night, they implyed that he did NOT feel threatened there, so there was no indication of a threat to the State dept! So how then can they place blame ON the State dept?

      Politically, at this stage of the Benghazi fiasco, it would be unproductive to blame the decisions made by the deceased for their own demise.
