I'm not making excuses for the politicians, they only know politics. Do they care knowing that Americans will die at their action or inaction? I doubt it. This occurred too many times in the past and with both sides. The poiticians only care what they can get away with and their own view of the world.

Having said that, should we have the predators and the C130 start firing away when this occcurred? I would have but for some reason they chose not to. It is beyond my control except for a vote I can cast once every 4 years. Getting angry about it is shouting into the wind.

It's awareness and accountability. It's more or less a shot across their bow to let them know we're watching closely. They'll make minor changes in that office. That's the most realistic outcome. I'm aware of that.

Barack Obama "The Butcher of Benghazi"


I voted against him, this was just another reason to vote against him, it wasn't "THE" reason.

He is a national embarassment but worse yet his inaction and inability to lead and take decisive actions have caused the death of numerous Tier 1 folks. Any single 1 of those folks I'd take 10x's before I took Zero.

Voting him out is just the start, he really ought to be brought up on criminal charges for all sorts of actions, we can lead off with this to start.

Inf, I didn't know you were a QRF guy, just that you served. Thank you again.

Hey Frank! It's been busy here... plus my office has started really cracking down on internet usage so it's tough to keep up to date during the day. I've been trying to help family with the damage to their properties from that Storm... yeah, busy time.

I must be adamant in reminding you that there was no faulty intelligence with Benghazi. It was gathered and collected then it was scrutinzed and analyzed and it was presented. There are no opinions on this. Just facts. The facts definitely implies the consumers of intelligence failed to act accordingly.
I understand big time! Its just for me doing what i have done for so long i tend to go back in history to solve the problem.

well, that was a long read. The one thing that stands out is that among his own cabinet, there was contradicting reports and opinions. It seems there was clearly an unwillingness from the WH to acknowledge this was a terrorist attack, and they were in lockstep with pushing the bogus protest story, yet they were still on that page after Sec of State and Sec of Defense both acknowledged this had nothing to do with protests.

I've been extremely critical of Hillary for not stepping up to her responsibility and resigning, and further critical of WH for not firing her, but if what's in that article is true, it appears she did ask for more security, and even her hubby Bill was urging her to release the proof a week PRIOR to the election, which surely would have had an impact. This makes more sense as to why Obama didn't ask for her resignation and has tolerated her dissenting opinion (along with Panetta's).....he was so desperate to ride out conflicting stories until the election instead of answering to the conclusive proof that they were covering this BS up. Here is one instance where there seems to actually be some signs of bi-partisanship, and the WH is the one at odds with both parties. Same for the Petraeus resignation which has dems and reps alike pissed off. In last 24 hrs it was reported FBI didn't know of Petraeus' involvment until day of election, now within last couple of hours it is known that the FBI concluded the whole investigation 4 days prior to the election and in BOTH interviews with the whore, she admitted to having the affair.

People can bitch about W all they want, but getting bad intelligence and relying on it is not intrinsically evil (no matter how much people want to call it "lying"), but to get good intelligence and ignore it, then further evade it and lie about it after sheot hits the fan is unconscionable. Where are all the Bush haters who thought he was so horrible......still fantasizing about licking Rachel Maddow's ass?

Also, glad to see CBS news is still the same POS organization they have been for many years.

They won't come out and sound off about this. Most liberals I know or are aware of, have no clue/don't care about anything happening to our people outside of the country.

All they give a shit about is where they can smoke weed legally, "free" healthcare, cellphones from Obama and their next f*cking installment of foodstamps. Which they will trade or sell off for profit.

My blood has boiled so much that my eyes are bleeding from reading this. MSG Shugart and Gordon are rolling in their graves right now. I'm not sure how credible that site is, but it definitely connected the dots to include Broadwell and her claims in past weeks. Can anyone here tell me with absolution that this is just a coincidence? I've said it before, I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but I have served and I am so well aware of what happens on the ground. The media is to blame just as much as the next guy. Now only two questions remain. What is justice and what is closure?

There will be no justice. Obabymomma has everyone in his pocket and enough libtards to call a war cry should he stumble, let alone fall. If anyone even considered going after him with anything more than a stout letter of condemnation, the libtards and obama entourage would flip out and start the riots.

I read an interesting point yesterday. If this shit with Petraeus didn't come out, he would still be in his position at the CIA and open to inquiry as well as blame/responsibility, right?

So something to consider is that he fell on his own sword(with this affair business) so he won't be on the hook to take the fall for Benghazi. Now who would be left if "they" couldn't pin it on the CIA? DoS? WH staff?

While this may seem like a stretch that he removed himself before he potentially got f*cked, it is interesting to speculate on.

2 ho's are gonna take down the top echelon of the CIA and the Army. I've said it before, I'll say it again: The uniform will get you pussy, but the pussy will get your uniform.
