    Mind you .. the raging masses are stupid so this may make a difference in the election.

    The Bush admin knew about the 911 plan prior to it happening and Bush still got a 2cnd term .. we will have to wait and see.
    The President picks his secretary of state and scores of other folk who serve in political offices that affect Embassies...He lso sets policy for the nation so, a president who establishes stupid or unrealistic policies and who picks inept officials most assuredly is in many ways responsible for failures.

    How does that December 2011 memo from Undersecretary of State Kennedy qualify as the security requests that were made by State Department regional security officer Eric Nordstrom in March and July 2012?

    That's an amazing transformation you've got working there, sport. Do you turn water into wine, too?

    In response to your ill-informed, confused and vacuous question, I would never have thought that 5 security personnel would have been adequate to secure the consulate in Benghazi, yet, some genius - Ms. Lamb? - thought it was sufficient.

    Since you're too lazy to get the facts straight, let's help you out, shall we?



    Maybe you should offer Undersecretary of State Lamb one of your bong hits, eh?
    Considering you have provided zero evidence in support of your claims ... then you ask me for a link to stuff that you copy from my post on the next line .. tis you who needs to lay off the pipe.

    It is you that is making these rediculous accusations .. It is not up to me to make your case for you.

    Any fool can fortell the past. If you think you know better than the State Department then perhaps you should call them for a meeting.

    I think a dozen armed Marines would have resulted in a different end.

    You're right, our embassies get over ran, along with our ambassadors being killed all the time.


    So Libya and Afghanistan, are both war zones? I thought Libyans loved us for riding them of Kahdafi?

    You are a shill.
    Dude ... any fool can fortell the past.

    Clearly there are security risks at numerous embassy locations. The State Department has limited resources and numerous requests.

    If we just had a crystal ball to tell us which Embassies were going to be over-run in advance .. then we could have military details in place prior to them being "over-run" ... but we dont.

    I do agree with you about our RW posters, but Congress does have a right to know the details of what happened, politics or not.

    So did Clinton for 2 years.
    Would the IRS accept the excuse YOUR hard drive crashed 10 days after receiving an audit notice, so you can't supply the information they're asking for? Would they just drop it and go away? Why should they be held to any less of a standard they set for us?

    And as we learned long ago ..."It ain't the crime. It's the cover-up."

    People died. Then Obama lied.

    How would anyone have known what was to happen in Benghazi ? The request for "more security" was for 5 people. Normally there were only 3 or 4.

    1 or 2 extra people would have made zero difference (except to the number of Americans killed) against the heavily armed and well coordinated military assault on the embassy.

    Do you think that 1 or 2 more security personnel would have made a difference against the well coordinated heavily armed group that attacked the embassy ?

    Really .. is this what you think ? If so I have a beautifull bridge to sell you at a low low price. Steal of a deal really .. you cant go wrong.

    Bong hit anyone ?
    They made it clear that the size of the ambassadors security staff in Benghazi was a direct result of the total security allowed in the country and that preivious visits to that city by the Ambassador had been accompanied by a much bigger security team until that team was removed.
