Amazing how a couple of right-wing senators are so hung up on politicizing the Bengzhai intel...but weren't concerning W's missed intel that may have saved the 9/11 disaster.
Hey - minnelusa, it's funny that you didn't mention that the honorable Joe Biden as well as more that 20 other Democrat Senators voted for that disaster.
McCain and Ms Lindsay are still harping about Benghazi but think nothing of the U. S. going to war in Iraq based on faulty intelligence (that the neocons in power at the time knew was faulty intelligence) Lets see, 4 Americans tragically died in Benghazi, in Iraq 5000+ Americans dead, 35,000+ wounded, and will be collecting disability for life, 150,000 Iraqi citizens dead. Good thing that Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld are "pro life."
The only item that this adminstration is intent on obtaining is Sarah Palin whereabout and every other card-carrying Republican in the United States. National Security? Ha! What a joke. North Korea could drive in with sunglasses and never be caught. Look at the Mexican boarder success and judge for yourself.
So four Americans died, and all people can say is "wull, MORE Americans died because of something else!". How cold can you be? What if it was your family? How about if I commented on the deaths of your family/friends with "wull, it's only 3 kids; what about how many die of car crashes or abortion?". I'm side-stepping the real issue, which is to acknowledge how terrible the deaths were, and to acknowledge how important each life is. We can always compare terrible things with other terrible things and get higher body counts; why, exactly?
