    Very true. Saying both worked for the O administration last time.

    I really, really do feel sorry for John, but “Gay-ham”, he’s not deteriorating, just what he’s always been.

    McCain is STILL peeved about getting his butt handed to him in 2008, I guess. Missing an important congressional briefing on Benghazi, to hold a press conference complaining about Benghazi?? Kinda screwed up priorities there, Johnny!
    Someone needs to tell him that he ISN’T gonna get another shot at the White House, so quit grandstanding!
    Either that, or the Alzheimer’s is REALLY kicking in!

    Where was all that concern for our men and women serving in embassies and consulates across the globe when all the other attacks and killings occurred?

    Like in 2002 when the US Consulate in the Karachi, Pakistan, was attacked and 10 were killed?

    Or in 2004 when the US embassy in Uzbekistan was attacked and two were killed and another nine injured?

    How about in 2004, when the US Consulate in Saudi Arabia was stormed and 8 lost their lives?

    There is more: In 2006, armed men attacked the US Embassy in Syria and one was murdered.

    Then in 2007 a grenade was thrown at the US Embassy in Athens.

    In 2008, the US Embassy in Serbia was set on fire.

    In 2008, bombings in the US Embassy in Yemen killed 10.

    Republicans never care when it’s under their watch. Didn’t you get the memo?

    When McCain first announced his candidacy I thought he might be a worthy opponent. Then he began to Romney on me and he’s gone down hill ever since. It is just sad to see that happen to any man. Graham…eeech.

    Three hundred American and French servicemen in Beirut were killed in an attack by Hezbollah, and while the president vowed that we would not be intimidated or abandon our mission, our troops would not be driven out, etc., all American forces were out of the country in 4 months, and all other international forces in 2 month more. The responsibility was never pinned on anyone in particular, no one was “brought to justice.” The president “accepted full responsibility” for what happened, but there were no consequences for him.

    Another president ignored repeated warnings of impending attack until 3000 Americans were killed by Al Qaeda terrorists.

    Even assuming that we were unprepared in Libya, and reacted too slowly, etc., is there nothing strange in people who gave Reagan a pass in 1983, and Bush a pass in 2001, to damn Obama in 2012 for a tragedy that happened on his watch?

    Five U.S. ambassadors were killed between 1968 and 1979. Scores of foreign service officers have died in the line of duty, very many in the last ten or fifteen years.


    Meanwhile, McCain and another senator skipped the president’s briefing on Benghazi so that they would not miss the talk shows where they went to complain that they were not being given enough information about the events there. The same folks who voted to reduce the budget for diplomatic security.

    Not every tragedy, not every screw-up, is a scandal. And politicians are not bound by oath to treat them as such: only anti-administration (whichever administrator) pundits are paid to be scandalmongers. Legislators are paid for a different job. Should they get at the truth, certainly. But their efforts should be exactly the same no matter who is in the White House. Can anyone really believe that they guys would have acted this way if these events had taken place in 2008?

    There are emails of the Staff in Benghazi requesting more Security, The CIA in DC told the CIA in Benghazi to Stand Down

    This was known in late October, and only now does our Liberal Media bring this to light,

    Either way, send a drone with Hellfires to say hello.

    McCain needs to take care of his own poor state and stop frothing at the mouth. Graham just needs to shut-up.

    Seven Americans killed by hostile fire so far this month. In Afghanistan. Nov. 2012. Any mention of them by McCain or Graham?

    Doughfoot – Very good synopsis. Will you on the right please absorb this and give it some thought?

    @corzak

    No mention of those killed in Afghanistan or those killed with malice in the U.S.
