    What is it about Benghazi, again? So far, all I see are Republicans turning the deaths of four Americans into political theater.

    The “Talking Points” thing isn’t much of a scandal. Susan Rice made it clear to all but the most oblivious that the information on hand was incredibly incomplete.

    We have evidence that the attackers were motivated by the Youtube Video. The part about the attack growing out of a protest turned out to be wrong. Again, I’m not sure why that is a scandal.

    The “Stand Down Order” controversy has been thoroughly debunked. Early on, I made satirical references to “Blackhawk Down” & the idea that sending more forces into a situation you don’t understand, is often more likely to wind up increasing your losses. Turns out, we really didn’t have the option. The few people who complained that they weren’t allowed to fly to Benghazi wouldn’t have arrived in time. And, if there were a follow up attack planned in Tripoli, they would have been in the wrong place. Reinforcements were quickly sent to places that were deemed at risk.

    Benghazi was not an official diplomatic outpost, let alone an embassy. Stevens knew it wasn’t the safest place, but went anyway. He did ask for beefed up security, but turned down an offer of a Marine contingent. We’ve gone over the fact that the State Department’s security budget had been deeply cut by the Republicans in Congress. The bureaucracy should have been more responsive, but Steven’s could have pushed harder or stayed away from Benghazi. The man decided to take a risk & he miscalculated. It’s a tragedy, not a scandal. Hopefully, this improves the system, but there will always be dangerous places where our diplomats will choose to go, knowing they are at risk. Far worse happened under Reagan without the political circus.

    Most people have tuned out the right wing media’s ongoing Benghazi fixation. Maybe something explosive turns up, but I’m skeptical about that. At this point, they’re looking as crazy as the lady who threw the first shoe at Hillary.

    Is Benghazi all you Republican’s can muster up?

    Let’s take up a collection and send half of the Rush Murdoch Fox Noise team to Libya for an actual tour, on the ground, of the situations and people they persist in lecturing us on from a gazillion cultural miles away.

    Isn’t political ‘revelation’, like the religious and economic kinds, best underpinned by actual, physical experience? Issa, I’m sure, will be first off the plane… back in San Diego.

    Must be quite a bit of truth behind that Ben Ghazi character from that daytime soap. The socialist lunatic asylum wants him to go away and the faster, the better. That’s the trouble with socialists. They never take responsibility for their own actions, failures, and disasters. But then, as Shrillary says, what difference does it make? Let’s see, if competent people were in charge instead of severely overgrown children, those people in Benghazi would still be alive. But then, what difference does it make? To a socialist, the only lives worth anything are the lives of the socialist elites. Everybody else is worthless except for feeding the socialist machine.

    The Senate has investigated, and the majority voted that the members of the administration were innocent of any wrongdoing with regard to Benghzi (and Hillary was a member of the administration when Benghazi happened).


    Of course, in a 20th century jury trial, the verdict had to be unanimous, not a majority. And the minority voted that the administration in general and Hillary in particular were guilty. So, if the Senate had been a 20th century jury, it would have been a hung Senate. Which STILL isn’t a guilty verdict.

    It is just disgusting to listen to people down-play Benghazi instead of demanding the truth. Why are you afraid of the truth deniers? Just last week another CIA hearing revealed that you were misled about what happened there. Why don’t you care? People died as heroes there, but you just turn away. The

    “What is it about Benghazi, again? So far, all I see are Republicans turning the deaths of four Americans into political theater.”

    Using Snopes and Slate as credible information sources? Why not use the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report, 85 pages, or the Accountability Review Board (ARB) for Benghazi, 39 pages (AKA The Pickering Report), et al. Or various hearing transcripts. The various reports and testimony don’t seem to agree much with Snopes and Slate.

    Is it true that politicians take training in shoe dodging?

    It’s a good thing for Hillary that the shoe did miss because she sure didn’t see it coming.

    Liberals will do anything to ignore Benghazi but it will be the stone around their neck in November 2016
