If anybody should know what inside files of the KGB said, it’s you.
The something from Wyoming posted the following response:
Attention: BE THIS GUYYou didn’t disprove one single thing that I said. All that you did was go to Google and make a cynical attempt to cherry pick whatever you could to support the narrative that you wanted to present.In your make-believe world, the Democrats had absolutely no connection at all to the Confederacy, slavery, Jim Crow, Ku Klux Klan, segregation, white supremacy, and racial discrimination.As late as the 1963, one of the most prominent Democrat governors in the South shouted the following words in public at his inauguration ceremony:“Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!”Now let’s see you deny that.Or maybe just call me another name for bringing it up.
Here is my reply:
It wasn’t a Republican that gave the following speech:
Lincoln got a plurality of the popular vote. He finished first both in popular and electoral votes in a multi candidate race.
Like I posted earlier, I’ve been here since 2008. You may not like my calling you names but you can’t challenge me on the facts.
Your comment was the opposite of sending me on a panic trip to Google. I’ve known about cases preceding Brown vs Education since junior high school when my American History teacher taught us about Supreme Court cases.
Your post was like a hanging curve ball that I knew I would wack 400 feet over the wall.
@ANDREW LITKOWIAK posted the following response to my post about Benghazi:
What’s your point? Seriously.
You have laid out a partial set of facts while failing to provide a fact set for the actual incident and the US response.
Is there a particular conclusion you want us to draw? Will that conclusion change if we review the entire body of fact instead of limiting ourselves to what you have presented?
The point is this: there have been claims made that the State Dept didn’t do enough for the security in Benghazi.
1- State moved all diplomatic personnel to Tripoli in March 2012, which was probably the wisest thing they could do.
2- At the time of the attack in September, all US activity in Benghazi was exclusively CIA. The fact that 21 hearings were held in which they tried to blame this completely on HRC was nothing more than a witch hunt. The members of Congress knew what the situation but they saw it as an opportunity to hurt HRC. The fact that HRC didn’t throw the CIA under the bus over this just confirms she was more qualified to be POTUS than a man-baby who publicly attacks the US IC on Twitter.
@B2PLUSA2 said: Reagan, and Bush 41, handled such things more competently than subsequent presidents.
In April 1983 the US Embassy in Beirut was attacked by a suicide truck bomber. More than 63 people were killed including 17 Americans. The most significant deaths were of Robert Ames, chief CIA analyst for the Near East and CIA station chief Kenneth Haas. The death of Ames, Haas and other CIA personelle did serious damage to the US ability to gather intelligence in the Middle East for years to come.
One would think after such an attack, the US government would take precautions to not let it happen again. But 6 months later 241 US Marines were killed by a suicide bomber.Now that’s 2 attacks in the same place in the same manner in little over 6 months.
After the April 83 Embassy attack, the US set up a temporary embassy in a “safer” neighborhood in Beirut. On Sept 20, 1984 the temporary Embassy was attacked by a cat bomber killing 2 US soldiers.Now, that’s 3 attacks in the same place in the same manner in less than 18 months. Remind me again how competent was Reagan at handling these things.
It wasn’t even a consulate. Read my post below.
You reply to being called a name. You don’t reply to being proven completely false in the claims you made.
I hope you’re not calling me a bot. I’ve been here forever (actually since 2008).
To all the people who scream “BENGHAZI!!!,” the US embassy at the time of the attack was in Tripoli.Stevens was making a day trip to Benghazi, a city that was known to be in turmoil.
State had transferred all diplomatic personnel from Benghazi to Tripoli in March of that year. The US compound there was reclassified as a “Special Diplomatic Mission” to provide cover for the CIA. Of the 35 US personnel 28 were CIA or CIA contractors. All had military background or intelligence background.
The US base was not a consulate. It did not provide consular service nor was it accredited by the host nation as a consulate.
The situation in Benghazi had been deteriorating for some time. Turkey and Tunisia had both closed their consulates in Benghazi after coming under attack. A convoy with U.K. Ambassador had come under attack during a “day trip” to Benghazi.
The US ambassador had canceled a trip to Benghazi in August — a month before the attack — because of security concerns.
All the information I have provided are a matter of public record.
