    This cartoon is nothing but a hatchet job. The Senate report castigated everybody, and stated that the Ambassador himself refused extra protection.

    Wow. They prevented Glenn McCoy from reading the report and seeing that Clinton was never mentioned in it. Yes, we must protect the ignorance of the right-wing commentators, because lying alone is not gonna do it.

    “…and seeing that Clinton was never mentioned in it.”

    I don’t know whether Mr. McCoy read the report or not; however, on page 75 of the report the report states " Ultimately, however, the final responsibility for security at diplomatic facilities lies with the former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

    “…and stated that the Ambassador himself refused extra protection.”

    I don’t think your source read the report because, starting on page 14 (15 of the pdf) there could be a contradiction to your assertion. From the report:

    “On June 6, 2012, Stevens recommended the creation of redacted teams, made up of locally hired personnel, in Benghazi and Tripoli. The State Department attempted to create a team in Tripoli, but was unable to do so because it was difficult to find and clear appropriate personnel. A redacted team was never created in Benghazi, despite the Ambassador’s recommendation.”

    “On July 9, 2012, Stevens sent a cable to State Department headquarters requesting a minimum of 13 “Temporary Duty” (TDY) U.S. security personnel for Libya, which he said could be made up of DS agents, DoD Site Security Team (SST) personnel, or_some combination of the two. These TDY security personnel were needed to meet the requested security posture in Tripoli and Benghazi. The State Department never fulfilled this request and, according to Eric Nordstrom, State Department headquarters never responded to the request with a cable."

    but (there’s always a but) on page 20 (21 of the pdf)

    “DoD confirmed to the Committee that Ambassador Stevens declined two specific offers from General Carter Ham, then the head of AFRICOM, to sustain the SST in the weeks before the terrorist attacks. After reading the August 16, 2012, EAC cable, General Ham called Ambassador Stevens and asked if the Embassy needed the SST from the U.S. military, but Stevens told Ham it did not.”

    It appears that the Ambassador wanted 13 temporary personnel to bolster site security but didn’t need the military’s full Site Security Team (although, could the report be interpreted differently?).

    A redacted report proves the Obama report innocent. Sorry No.

    You guys are ……… not thinking.

    The affair was a cluster-F… from all accounts given. Who was responsible? Why a multitude of hosts with the Sec. of State at the top of the list.

    But THAT isn’t the problem.

    The PROBLEM is that YOUR elected officials felt it was necessary to LIE to you and try to COVER UP the mistakes and wrong moves made by THEM that resulted in the death of OUR ambassador. That’s right. ALL public servants from the president on down are hired and paid by YOU and I so they are OUR employees.

    But LYING seems to be the first response of this administration (not that any other administrations have been 100% truthful) to any and all controversies.

    Idiots.

    Sheesh! Grovelling in the mud comes to mind. Move on. There’s more important things to do than spending millions and countless time pointing fingers.

    O’really stated in an episode of his show,“I don’t care about the bloody report!”. Yeah, fair and balanced. Shows The Fox News slant.

    With the current administration, do you really want to bring lying into this?
