    The Bush admin knew it was comming and let it happen because it fit their agenda to attack the mideast.

    The R’s also blew the intel on Saddam’s WMDs…swallowed everything their pwecious widdle ‘Curveball’ fed them without questioning any of it.


    ( And no, those quotes from Dems the righties are always posting have long since been shown to have no context. Go to Snopes.com and enter WMDs and Saddam in the search box. )

    @Radish – Bush was warned as late as August of ’01 and stayed on vacation in Crawford, TX. Where was the outrage? Where IS the outrage. Bush should be brought up on charges AFAIK.

    Thank you, Steve. I cannot imagine being outraged at four deaths in a hot zone when the accusers do not try those in charge when 3000 were killed ON OUR OWN SOIL.

    Because there was a failure of Intelligence in 2001 does not justify or rationalize the failure in Libya. We are so wrapped up in stupid finger pointing and rhetoric (on both sides) the the truth is the last discovery of the process.

    Hey, Ran Paul, you would have fired Hilary if you were president for three people dying so I guess you would have put Bush, Cheney and Rice up against a fire squad for 9/11. Why haven’t they ever been prosecuted for neglect of duty and criminal incompetence I will never know. Do you know, you lame a$$, Obama?

    Far be it from me to ruin anyone’s fantasies by interjecting some facts here, but there are vast differences. The intelligence failure in regard to 9-11 was more of a systemic failure due to a lack of communication between the CIA and FBI. IF it would have been possible to send a general alert to all agencies the attack MIGHT have been prevented. While it feels good to blame Bush (and he certainly deserves blame for the push to invade Iraq), he had neither the reason nor the intelligence (in both senses of the word) to change the culture within the FBI and CIA that might have prevented 9-11.

    On the other hand the attacks on Rice and Clinton is nothing more than posturing by grown men who seek to tear down people better qualified than they are.

    2000-2008 was the epitome of “Intelligence Failure”, starting in the Oval Office!

    Clinton tried to get more consulate security there; House Republicans blocked the bill.

    Careful on pointing the finger at republicans.


    “It is tempting to look for a scapegoat for the tragic events in Libya. However, if one exists, the overall budget for embassy security is not it. Funding for that purpose has risen sharply over the past decade. Moreover, the State Department has considerable latitude in allocating security funds based on current events and intelligence on possible threats. Why that latitude was not applied in Libya deserves further scrutiny.”

    .
    Ron Suskind reports that on August 6, 2001 an FBI briefer from the security team advises Bush that Bin Laden is determined to strike in the U.S.A.. Bush replied, “Okay you’ve covered your ass now.” Then went fishing.

    9/11 was an intelligence blunder of epic proportions. But the “WMD in Iraq” story was no blunder, that was intentional. Between these bookends Hillary can leave with her head held high!
