Even though it was a personal attack(against the forum rules), Ill agree on the azz part.

Is this one classified, or perhaps the better question is -was- it at the time that it was communicated?





It both is and is not based on the information given, which one takes precedence?


In any event, it is clearly not about bridesmaids and/or yoga.

It is not a witch hunt when you have a learned treatise such as this, there are many others.

"who are supposedly against big government sure blew a huge amount of our tax money on this stupid witch hunt."

Ilove these kinds of accusations.

HINT. All the people who worked on this ARE FEDEAL GOVERMENT EMPLOYEES and would have been paid anyway.

And I'd bet you NEVER voiced 1 single word of criticism about the Valerie Plame fiasco.

The dems held control of the House for 40 STRAIGHT YEARS and you probably they they NEVER held a single hearing.

"hypocrite" comes to mind!

Rooting out the TRUTH is never a waste of money (or time). It just takes longer when the subjects don't cooperate by 'not recalling' or pleading the 5th 25 times in a row.

So, if your objection is the amount of tax money, write your fave Dems and urge them to come clean faster.

While that is true, the SAT is not an intelligence test.

You don't get to tell me I need to be "spoon-fed common logic and deductive reasoning" and then complain about personal attacks, my friend.

Ah, I see. We will throw a whole bunch of qualifiers on this particular attack in order to pretend that it's so much different from any other embassy attack, and therefore we can also then pretend that we're focusing on this one for other reasons aside from pure politics.

She took responsibility as the head of the State Department. That's what real leaders do. They don't blame everyone else for everything. Remember the saying, "The buck stops here"? That's what it means.

A President Trump would probably have a plaque on his desk that says, "The buck stops anywhere but here." Because The Donald is never, ever wrong. Just ask him.

Darn right I'll use qualifiers when you compare Benghazi to attacks that were not like Benghazi. I'll figure you can't find another case where an attacked facility's repeated requests for more security were rejected and ignored. Not only was Clinton head of the mismanaged department, she was an architect of the whole policy that created the Libyan heckhole.


If she took responsibility, what's your beef with others saying she's responsible ? She wasn't in a position to pass the buck to her boss. Of course, taking responsibility is easy when there are no consequences. Or when down the road you can do what she just did with classified emails on her basement computers --- blame it on the judgment of the professionals she worked with.

You can't say that because never, ever has any other embassy attack been investigated to this degree. Who knows what went on behind the scenes of every other attack? There was no rabid political party intent on investigating each one down to the last period on the talking points in any other attack, so what was or was not requested, what funding Congress cut leading up to it, etc., will forever be shrouded in time. And you don't care one whit about any of those other attacks because there is no political hay to make there for your party.

That is the one and only difference between this tragic event and ever other one that came before it. Intelligent people understand that. And that's why Benghazi as a "scandal" has been such a bust for Republicans.

""The buck stops anywhere but here.""

That is Obama's mantra.

In is 7 years has he EVER taken responsibility for ANY of his actions?

Hillary "said" she took responsibility" what exactly did she do except say it?
