re: Anderson Cooper just had Sean Smith's mom on

Found the article I posted below when I got home. Didn't think this guy was legit.

Cuts have to be made and like you said likely wouldn't have mattered.

I can tell that you are a good alter, though; you certainly have a well-conceived handle.

You talking about this??


Call for restoration of security dollars


I'm going to post this again for you. Bipartisan vote, when asked if having more money would of helped all 4 of the people said it would of made no difference. Both of these were pointed out during the hearing. You should read your own link,

quote:

Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said more Democrats than Republicans — including Cummings — voted for those bills and called them a “bipartisan” effort. Republicans pointed to a July 2012 report from the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction that found $200 million in waste to justify the cuts.

And Republicans on the committee say that the 16-person Site Security Team that the State Department decided not to keep in the country past August was funded through the Department of Defense budget, not State, and "had nothing to do with State Department budgetary shortfalls or concerns."

If she watched the OSC's hearing today, she's probably livid.

Remember that standard. Would it have made a difference if x, y, or z were done?

whatever was being requested, assuming the request was presented to a person that could have granted it - would it have made a difference?

If you want to analyze these things fairly, you should use the right standards and be consistent if possible. I mean, "one" should. not "you" specifically.

And you'll hold your breath until you get truth from the government, yes?

Except on 9/11, then we insist upon lies and deceit. And anyone seeking the truth shall be deemed an outcast.

Wasn't the main point of my post just saying what they said at the hearing. What was annoying was that the dens tried to find a way to blame this on republicans when it was a bipartisan vote.

Baby, just to reinterate a point that I'm sure has been driven home to you numerous times, likely by your own mother, you are an idiot.

Not sure if serious. The former COL at the hearing said that a security presence by itself was a deterrent. Terrorists aren't stupid.

This is no different than FF, the security requested on three different occasions more security and two of the request were never even replied back to them. This white house is incompetent it is scarey. I read somewhere they did not want to upgrade the security because they wanted it to look like business as usual. Obama should be tried for the murder of these four people cause everyone knew on 9/11 these people were coming and they avoided and now we have four people dead and he goes to vegas to campaign. Are you kidding me.

So how do you feel about statements made to the press 6 days after the incident still referencing protests to the movie as being responsible for the embassy attack when intel had already shown it was a planned terrorist attack?

I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt here & believing that you don't really know anything about this.

Seeing that there hasn't been a budget passed by the Senate in over 3 years and that the Senate has been controlled by dems the entire time and without them passing a budget, HOW IN THE HELL ARE REPUBLICANS IN THE HOUSE RESPONSIBLE FOR CUTS?
It's nonsense from the dems trying to blame the GOP.

WTF is wrong with you?

She doesn't deserve answers about what happened to her son after they specifically told her they would?

re: Anderson Cooper just had Sean Smith's mom on
yes, I agree she deserves answers. But when do we think our illustrious government will be able to tell her what happened to her son? I would think the final report or whatever on something like this takes a while to come out, and that unfortunately the family doesn't get all the details until after that.

re: Anderson Cooper just had Sean Smith's mom on
My bar is a little higher for the government and it probably shouldn't be but I would want answers too. It's alarming that the state department had video of the entire fight and misrepresent the entire situation by persisting that a crowd of protesters started this?

Why would they say protesters gathered when they have video feed back in DC saying otherwise? It's ridiculous...
