    What about the 60 embassy staff killed while W. was President?

    I’m sure they’re next in the Republican “investigation.”

    I was going to attempt an elaborate post to reason with you. But then I thought, why waste my time (and at the age of 70, I do not have a whole lot left anymore). Neither you nor any of the other ultra conservatives on these boards would ever bother to listen to reason under any circumstances anyway. It does not matter to you that in attempting to destroy the current president over this (or all of the things that you wish to use to tear him down wit)h you create the collateral damage of tearing down the country that diplomatic personnel risk their lives for in such areas as the Middle East anyways!!

    I heard an interview with Pickering, the author of the original Benghazi report, yesterday. He said that after trying very hard to reach the folks in charge of the hearings, because he knows a lot about the issue, he was never able to get a return call. Then at the hearing, the house members described Pickering several times as “refusing to show up.” The hearing was a farce. They’re not interested in truth. They’re interested in scandal. And anyone who might have told the truth was not allowed to testify.

    I’ve said this numerous times before, but it always bears repeating. I no longer try to discuss issues with conservatives in 21st Century America. I can get a more reasonable conversation with a bag of hammers.

    Terrific post! But, there are some more reasonable conservatives here, just as there are also some more reasonable moderates and liberal. Unfortunately, they seem to be far outnumbered (at least until election time that is) by the “bag of hammers” types of ultra conservatives on this site!!

    Allowing the mind to ossify by not listening to things that are not agreeable with your present philosophy is not a good thing.

    If you google Doug Hagmann from ansonia’s link, you’ll find he is a a far right kook who specializes in disinformation.
    -———-
    I didn’t have to go a Google search; I could tell all that from the general negative tone of the article.
    .
    I looked for the official report of the Accountability Review Board chaired by Pickering, so that I could check certain things.
    .
    Noteworthy is the fact that Hagmann quoted only the portion of the concluding paragraph that served his distortive purposes, leaving out this significant portion:
    .
    The Board found that certain senior State Department officials within two bureaus in critical positions of authority and responsibility in Washington demonstrated a lack of proactive leadership and management ability appropriate for the State Department’s senior ranks in their responses to security concerns posed by Special Mission Benghazi, given the deteriorating threat environment and the lack of reliable host government protection.
    .
    The entire report can be found here:

    1. Obama said the next day the attack was an act of terrorism.

    2. Ambassador Stevens, long a friend of Libya made the choice, against “best advice” to go to Benghazi, despite the known “danger”. HIS family knew this, and had no problem with the administration, or how events unfolded.

    3. The family of one of our hired mercenaries came up with a load of garbage, but the facts have repeatedly disproved all their charges.

    4. Even if the 14 or so Marines “panel members” and complainers have brought up had been present, it just would have added to the body count given the actual events. The military did NOT have time to respond given the short time frame that “panel members” keep ignoring.

    5. The total idiocy of Issa and the Republican panel members, and the right-wing press and blowhards like Hannity and Limbaugh just prove WHY many actions, especially “covert” our government undertakes should remain classified, AND why giving details of real operations and what’s really in progress to try to “get the bad guys” should be kept from the media, even if it involves giving out false leads (to all those morons like Issa and LImbaugh and the dittoheads.).

    I’ve been in combat, and my son has participated in many “covert operations” overseas before getting his disability retirement from the Navy after 13 years of service, so this isn’t some “liberal rant”, merely a knowledgable, informed, and accurate response, which Issa, and our rignt-wingers here on this blog could care less about, but will undoubtedly attack as “prejudiced and ill-informed”. BTW: there aren’t “links” to first-hand experiences of friends and family who participated in covert activities abroad, because they’re still classified. (Which is why Issa and his buddies should be censured by the Congress, not “encouraged” or supported."

    nice rewrite of history dtroutma a few minor corrections are needed
    1] bho said he was against terrorism the next day but did NOT call benghazi attack terrorism
    2] the decision to keep the consulate open was done farther up the line than stevens
    3]this is garbage
    4] 70+ troops were available in tripoli with chinooks but was told to stand down and more troops were 3 hours away
    5]koolaide guzzlers still defend bho even after emails and clegg

    @wbr

    [Obama] …did NOT call benghazi attack terrorism
    ——
    I must again call attention to the fact that Conservatives are playing a game of semantics. What is the difference between “an act of terror” and a “terrorist attack”? Obama definitely described the Benghazi incident as an “act of terror” in his speech the following day: “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.” (Paragraph #10 at this site: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/09/12/remarks-president-deaths-us-embassy-staff-libya )

    If Obama said, “Let’s order a pizza. I like anchovies” the RWNJs would say there was no connection implied between the pizza and the anchovies.
