I was typing quickly, and couldn't remember exact details. That's why I found the quote for you when I got home from work.

And Hillary can make that kind of money with 2 good speeches no one hears on Wall Street.

Worth every penny to hear the truth since all we got from the Obama Admin was lies.

Succeeding to prove it was all Political for those people to even be there. After all the boasting there was no threat and it had been reduced to JV. How would it have looked politically, if we bailed like everyone else had weeks prior.
People that went to Libya and returned, days before the attack said it was a suicide mission, upon return, prior to the attack.

Fair enough, then. No quibble - and thanks for providing the citation, I shall strive to emulate that example.

Good news. It is weird to me that our own anti-Gaddafi forces didn't help. I don't know if they were just scared, inept, or in league with the terrorists. The Gaddafi loyalists had no love for the terrorists.

For example, see below:





Clinton, Obama and the bureaucrats that perpetrated this and then abandoned our people are a disgrace.
Clinton can claim all she wants that she never 'refused' a request for added security or assistance. Failure to respond is the same as refusal. She's so precise with her choice of words that every time she talks you know she's hiding something.
I don't forgive her not getting extra security or abandoning Benghazi like all the other countries when it became clear to everybody that the city was lost. But the idea that military personnel were ready to go but never got off the ground just pisses me off. We left those people to die while they quibbled about whether it would look bad diplomatically (and politically).

If you are paid to protect the enemy of your enemy, you are disorganized and your territory is in a state of flux, how diligent can you expect?

Responsibility lies in our own poor planning, communication, and response from the CIA, dod, and state department.

Having an ambassador on the ground in a civil war is not normal protocol. Dare say his own ego may also factor into that equation

The official line is that he was in Benghazi to help set up a new embassy there, and Hillary Clinton was planning on visiting in October. Meanwhile, the British and French abandoned their facilities there because it wasn't safe. The unofficial line is that he was there to arrange for arms to Libyan or Syrian Rebels. That seems more plausible of why he would go on that specific date knowing al Qaeda would love to attack on the anniversary of 9/11.

Placing and keeping Americans in harms way, with no way of really defending themselves, for political purposes...

I see a theme, developing.

By ANY analysis this whole situation was a giant cluster on many, many levels. Who should accept responsibillty for this? If this is an example of Clinton's leadership perhaps it would be in our best interest to pass!
