Timeline. 10PM: U.S. Benghazi consulate attacked. 11:30 PM: Rapid deployment of democratic troops to project Hillary's political future.
Not even remotely clever, as usual. But go ahead and beat that dead horse. I assume you are ready for a Congressional investigation into the 400 plus Americans and 10s of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans killed because GWB and Cheney lied. right?
Nine Benghazi hearings and you are still unsure?Republicons must be the most inefficient people on earth.
Oh look. Payne pulled out his other cartoon. He only has 2 you know. Obama (soon to be Hilary) killing the poor poor fossil fuel industry and BENNNNGGGGAAAAAHHHHZZZZZIIIIIII!!!!!!!
so she failed the 2 am call // what difference does that make ?
The two mercenaries sent from Tripoli and killed on the roof of the CIA outpost succeeded in saving ALL the CIA folks. As our Marines were guarding the actual embassy in Tripoli from active demonstrations, related to that “video”, and under our agreement with Libya couldn’t be sent elsewhere in the country, what could be done, was. Those “resources” the mlitary had were not in a position to arrive and do any good at the Stevens compound, OR the CIA compound. That the folks Stevens selected among the Libyan “security” didn’t do their jobs, and that wasn’t the fault of anyone back at State, or in the military.
“Under Fire” , as mentioned detailed ALL events, hour by hour and explained what went wrong, but they only published that book some two years ago, no reason for Republican jerkwads to read it.
I am reposting this because it is applicable to this cartoon. Please, excuse me.
I am going to say something now that is going to make many people angry but there is nothing factually wrong. By September 2012 Benghazi was a security nightmare. The Turks and the Tunisians and both closed their diplomatic missions in the city after being attacked by Islamic terrorists. A convoy carrying the British ambassador had been attacked. The US had moved most of its diplomatic personnel from Benghazi to Tripoli earlier that year. Of the 35 US personnel in Benghazi, 28 were CIA employees or CIA contract, most of whom had military background. After the State Department moved its workers to Tripoli, it classified the post in Benghazi as a “Special Diplomatic Mission.” Many times it has been referred to as a “consulate,” but it wasn’t a consulate. It didn’t provide consular services nor was it accredits as a consulate by the host nation. The “Special Diplomatic Mission” was a cover the State Depertment was providing for the CIA.The main mission for the US operatives in Benghazi was to hunt down, apprehend, — and if necessary — kill Islamic extremists. Their job was also to disarm the militias that were considered a threat to the weak post-Qaddafi regime that was trying to govern Libya.Knowing all this, Chris Steven not only visited Benghazi, he did it on September 11, at a time when security would be at the greatest risk.
Since Eisenhowers was president in 1959, every US administration has experienced an attack on a US diplomatic site. Some of the worst attacks were during the Reagan Administration. On April 18, 1983 a suicide bomber killed 63 persons — 17 Americans — at US Embassy in Beirut. Among those killed, was Robert Ames, chief CIA Mideast analyst and 7 other CIA employees. This attack had a devastating affect on CIA operation in the Mideast for years to come. The interesting part is, the US setup a temporary embassy in a safe area of Beirut. On September 20, 1984, the new Embassy was also attacked killing 24 people but “only” two Americans. The attack on both sites were carried out in a similar manner.In between the attacks on the embassies, on October 23, 1983, the Marine barracks in Beirut were attacked by a suicide bomber killing 241 American servicemen.
If anything, Hillary fell on the sword for the CIA. Like I said, 28 of the 35 personel at Benghazi were CIA employees or contract employees. This was a CIA operation and the State Department provided cover for by designating it “Special Diplomatic Mission.” The fact that she has taken the abuse and blame for others’ mistakes just confirms how much guts she has.
