didn't they just have a civil war? They may be more of a household good than you would expect

Funding, they just need more funding! You do not get to make these decisions. The loss of four Americans in fact and widely known, thus it gets to be vetted in public.
When the 4 at Kent State were murdered do you think it woudl be a good idea to conduct the investigation in private by "serious" people?

GTFO

re: What is the GOP angling for on Benghazi?


other than 4 people getting killed, how is Kent state anything like Benghazi? If 4 people die in a car wreck, is it like Benghazi also? There is no correlation

A tragedy indeed. Signs point to these being avoidable casualties. Requests for increased security had been made, and concerns about safety had been voiced by the consulate in Benghazi in the days before the 9/11 anniversary. Those requests and concerns were not regarded with any urgency, and no additional personnel were assigned to the location. The attack that happened on 9/11 was viewed in real-time through the cameras in the consulate, as well as surveillance drones above.

Why, when the president and all personnel involved, could see exactly what happened before and during the attack...did they lie to the media about what happened?

The political points have already been scored. Obama shifting this whole thing to the week after the election was the scoring drive. Dead ball foul. Penalty will be assessed on the kickoff...

The whole story. Some explanation for the families of the deceased that their loved ones didn't die in vain. The truth. The (soon to be labeled "racist") truth. That's all...

that needs to be looked into. It is a security matter.

proving what? Were the drones armed?

When Bush was in office, i hated when democrats tried to score lame political points. Now that Obama is in office, i equally think it's pitiful that Republicans just want to score political points.

According to the timeline that has been released, the president knew within 2 hours of the attack. They had a drone overhead sending a live feed. There were strike teams armed with helicopters an hour's copter flight away. A couple retired Navy SEALS held off the aggressors for over 7 HOURS before being taken out by mortar rounds. They had been using lasers to paint the targets for air support which they were assured was incoming but never arrived. The CIA had a strike team blocks away with dozens of heavily armed agents who sat there and never made an attempt to rescue the ambassador. This is negligence.

Either our government, military, and intelligence agencies are so grossly incompetent so as to allow those 4 Americans to die with multiple possibilities of rescue available, or (and this is my favorite) our assets were ordered to stand down and those people were allowed to die for some specific purpose.

No, you reaching bastard. That there was additional video feed of the entire area, not just the cameras at the consulate.

frick. Really? That they knew exactly what happened (they watched it happen real-time) and blamed a fricking YouTube video. They knew it wasn't a protest. They saw that it wasn't a protest. Yet, they sent people out to speak to the media to claim that it was stemmed from a protest (knowing that was a lie).

What timeline did you read? First the attack on the consulate lasted about 2 hours, the rescue team arrived on site about an hour after it started and left an hour later. There was a pause then a 15 minute attack at the other site 6 hours later. There were more people then just a couple of navy seals during the attack.

Please tell me exactly where this strike team was? The closest place I could find reference to a team was Signolla Italy, 400 miles away. Beyond being outside the combat radius of a blackhawk, it would take a blackhawk over 2 hours to get there, which would be too late even if somehow it was magically ready to go with armed people the second the attack began.

Hell it took 4 hours to get a team from tripoli to Benghazi, and it then took another 3 hours before the libyans let them leave the airport.

No lasers were ever pointed at anything.

The strike team you reference blocks away was exactly what was used to rescue people, so for you to say they did nothing just proves you have no clue what you are talking about.

As to your conspiracy that Obama let them die and ordered everyone to stand down. What would he gain from this. Here is the thing with conspiracies (besides being very hard to pull off), there has to be a point to them, the conspirators have to hope to gain something. What did Obama hope to gain? He sure as hell doesn't want to put troops in Libya.

Just helping the American people really get to know their president, in depth. You know, the Woodward and Bernstein model of journalism.

re: What is the GOP angling for on Benghazi?


Could something as simple as the truth of the matter be considered as a goal. The lying factory was humming along smoothly after only a few hours, and still rears its ugly head now. Yes, someones head should roll for this debacle, but every stone should be overturned in the clear light of day. It is rather interesting that Hilz and Panneta both ran off to OZ in the timeline of hearings. Drinking wine down under is a so much more important task than getting roasted by Congress about your actions before and at the time of the attacks, and certainly in the aftermath when the lies were coming fast and furiously from DC.

Maybe they want Obama to reimburse the $70,000 he wasted on that bogus arse apology ad him and Hillary made to the towelheads of the ME.

Little hint if you want people to take you seriously probably using racist language in your posts isn't an ideal thing.

Kucinich says the same thing...

I don't see why anyone would be against knowing the truth.

4 dead in Benghazi is a tradgedy but they seem to be after something that they deem to be big.

4 Americans dead including the US Ambassador to Libya IS freaking big. And this Administration trying to sweep it under the rug is big too. Shameful. Every American should be pressing on this.
