This is getting really old. We're still on this about someone dying in a foreign country we all knew had major problems? I have a question that I want answered and it's more important than this. How come 20 children were murdered in a school in Connecticut? That was supposed to be a safe place. Benghazi is not a safe place and the people there knew it. Why does the extremists GOP Tea Party want to talk about Benghazi and not about 20 children being murdered in a school in our supposedly safe country? Wag the dog?
Just as I thought. Hillary just got thrown under the bus!! Heaven forbid that Obama would take responsibility. But then again, she reports to him, doesn't she??
"Benghazi is not a safe place and the people there knew it. Why does the extremists GOP Tea Party want to talk about Benghazi and not about 20 children being murdered in a school in our supposedly safe country?"
Because there was no help called in to even try to save those lives. Nothing. Why anyone would consider that someting of less importance is beyond me. I hate the fact that 20 school children died because of a mad man. I despise it. I also despise the fact that 4 people in the service of America were left alone to die without any assistance and nothing was done to save them.
It's a story of cover up, misinformation and an inept State Department where people died and the main stream media essentially covered it up.
Obama lied and so did his staff bottom line he should be Impeached for dereliction of duty Period!!!!
Lieberman is a Zionist shrill. He should be tried for treason.
Obviously most of you didn't read the article. It basically states that all of the agencies that the White House uses for info all had different and changing stories. If everyone didn't need to know everything absolutely right now, maybe we could actually wait a bit and get it right the first time. Most of you don't ever need to know the whole story, because there is nothing you will ever be able to do with the info anyway, except complain. It would not have mattered what he truth was to most of you.
"Because there was no help called in to try to save those lives"
Wrong. If you read the timeline presented by CBS on 11/12/12, you'll see that help was called in (quickly), and at least 6 agents arrived in short order. You can argue that the threat was underestimated, or that there wasn't enough help on hand. But, to imply that there was no help is plain wrong,disingenuous, and pure politics. I am truly sorry for the American lives lost,and I value and honor the sacrifices made. By all accounts, Ambassador Stevens preferred a low-key, man-among-the-people style. To turn this tragedy into political score-keeping offends his memory.

I will never see it any other way. One was children on our soil and far more of them dead - shot down by where they are supposed to be safe - like other children that were shot down in other schools in the United States where they are supposed to be safe - and the extremists GOP tea party wants to talk about Benghazi? Lets talk about priorities here folks. Lets also include ALL the facts like they did call and help did come. Lets not tell lies and change the subject.
You can say what agencies has info and what was reported but what it comes down to the responsibility comes under the state dept. which is Clinton and of course who is Clinton's boss, Obama.
