So as Americans were fighting for their lives in benghazi....State Dept did



NOTHING!

quote:

"Why didn't you put forces in place to be ready to respond?," Senator John McCain asked the general.

Dempsey started, "Because we never received a request to do so, number one. And number two, we --"

McCain iterrupted, "You never heard of Ambassador Stevens's repeated warnings?"

"I had, through General Ham," responded Dempsey, referring to the commander of AFRICOM. "But we never received a request for support from the State Department, which would have allowed us to put forces--"

"So it's the State Department's fault?"

"I'm not blaming the State Department," Dempsey responded.

The state department was probably requesting a "cultural awareness" & "human feelings" assessment from DDS prior to requesting any kind of armed intervention by the bullies in the US Military.

It's a horrible thought to ponder, but, if Hillary runs for POTUS, the mainstream media will ignore the truth and protect her.

No way Hillary's political career is hurt by this.

I don't know how she doesn't get slammed for this in a debate

Well it will never come up, if it does the moderator will answer for her, and if all else fails the white dude will be attacked as a sexist POS for even mentioning the fact that she has blood on her hands.

It makes a lot of difference. Finding out what happened and why support wasn't sent to our embassy while it was under attack helps us to ensure such an event never happens again.

That's what Clinton didn't and probably still doesn't understand. She's just concerned about her legacy as Secretary of State due to the fact that she plans to run for president again in 2016. She doesn't want this scandal to still be hanging over her head in four years.

Because the moderator will bail her out and the media will never fact check it.

FYI - "What difference does it make?" was Hillary's quote from her testimony to Congress.

Except it won't be a white dude- it will be Booker in the primary (along with others, including Biden ), and Rubio in the general, if she makes it that far.

Hillary's chance was 2008 - she blew it.

That should be a true statement, too bad it won't happen. The press will bury it and idiots like some on here who say that there is nothing to the death of Americans will support whoever the Ds toss out there blindly.

She won't, ST...IF there is ANOTHER lightweight on the stage with her.

The day she slammed that fist on that table and made that 'what does it matter statement'...a decent representative of the opposition should JUMPED UP AND FLIPPED THE TABLE OVER...cursing to high heaven.

One thing is for sure, if she runs...the R debates will be body slamming her. Paul and Rubio for sure.

Sadly, the American public had a chance to "comment" on this matter in November.
It could not have f*cking cared less.

Susan Rice lied to America on Obama's behalf, and at his behest.
The American public could not have f*cking cared less.

Candy Crowley lied on Obama's behalf, and at his behest during the 2nd debate.
The American public could not have f*cking cared less.

John McCain can take all the time he wants to deliver an indisputable case establishing this Administration's incompetence.
The f*cking American public could not f*cking care f*cking less.

Simple if it does get brought up, the left will scream that the right is making the deaths political. See it is ok and patriotic for the left to do it, but bad bad bad for the right.
