The United States Consulate was invaded in a terrorist action, the request for help was made. Assistance was refused. An American Ambassador was killed. His corpse was abused and displayed to the rioting mob. The drones videos were active. The WH denied this and Rice was told to lie to the United Nations.

So woodtick, you do not believe that the current system allows the possibility of people voting more than once ? How would asking for identification deny anyone the right to vote ? Everyone in the United States has some form of ID that would pass the test of recognition regardless of income or educational levels.
Why would anyone oppose asking for identification ?

Woodtick, if you ever were in the military, you would understand the word, "STANDDOWN". It is a direct order NOT to get involved. It is a REFUSAL of requested assistance.

The men you mentioned have the same influence of Cher and Kathy Griffin standing together making their progressive statements. Only Cher and Griffin are just a smidgen of the progressive movement. If those Repubs really meant something, there would be thousands of times more broadcasting from every avenue in every movie, television, printed and every thing else. The insanity of watching a nation hang itself in the name of civil rights is shameful. The thing is, if the federal reserve spigot is ever turned off, most of the people spouting their pontificate bellows will turn on each other as they see what they wrought with a nation bent on irresponsible behaviors and a massive lowering of morality that has affected us all.

Even though we know that Susan Rice isn't worth a shit, that still doesn't explain why Stevens is dead and why Obama had to lie about it. There is still many questions to be answered. Such as "Did Chris Dodd really have the movie trailer made?" After all he is the Motion Picture Czar in Hollywood you know. What does he know about Benghazi?

Read My Lips:

Obama is not a liberal and the Mainstream media is not liberal.

They are corporates who mostly talk liberal but never votes in the interest of liberals.

Talk is cheap.

You and I both know the whole system is corrupt and both Republicans and Democrats like it that way.

Fox News and MSNBC are both corporate hack talking air heads loyal to these two corrupt parties.

Most Republicans are conservative in name only.

Most Democrats are liberal in name only.

Obamacare is not a liberal health plan which would have provided Single Payer, Medicare For All.

Obamacare is more accurately Romneycare which was endorsed by Bob Dole and the Heritage Foundation back in the 1990s.

Obama/Clinton, Bush/Cheney John Kerry, John McCain, et cetera are all corporate hacks loyal to Wall Street.

They have to divide and conquer our ignorant masses.

Revolving door for health care aides / 9/15/09 / http://tinyurl.com/q243zq
Some of the most influential aides in the closed-door Senate Finance Committee negotiations over health care reform have ties to interests that would be directly affected by the legislation.
Before she was hired last year as senior counsel to Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Liz Fowler worked as a highly paid public policy adviser for WellPoint Inc., the nation’s largest publicly traded health benefits company.
Mark Hayes, health policy director and chief health counsel for Finance Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), is married to a registered lobbyist for a firm that represents drug companies and hospital groups, although the couple says she doesn’t lobby Grassley’s office.
Frederick Isasi, a health policy adviser to Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), was a registered lobbyist at Powell Goldstein, where his clients included public hospitals and the American Stroke Association.
Kate Spaziani, senior health policy aide to Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), was also a registered lobbyist at Powell Goldstein, although Conrad’s office says she worked as a lawyer — not as a lobbyist — for public hospitals on Medicare issues.

Tony Blair and George Bush might have “signed in blood” their agreement to topple Saddam Hussein a year before the Iraq war, according to Sir Christopher Meyer, Britain’s former ambassador to Washington.

Diplomat's Suppressed Document Lays Bare the Lies behind Iraq War
December 15, 2006 http://tinyurl.com/ye8w94
The Government's case for going to war in Iraq has been torn apart by the publication of previously suppressed evidence that Tony Blair lied over Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction.
A devastating attack on Mr. Blair's justification for military action by Carne Ross, Britain's key negotiator at the UN, has been kept under wraps until now because he was threatened with being charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act.

In the testimony revealed today Mr. Ross, 40, who helped negotiate several UN security resolutions on Iraq, makes it clear that Mr. Blair must have known Saddam Hussein possessed no weapons of mass destruction. He said that during his posting to the UN, "at no time did HMG [Her Majesty's Government] assess that Iraq's WMD (or any other capability) posed a threat to the UK or its interests."

Mr. Ross revealed it was a commonly held view among British officials dealing with Iraq that any threat by Saddam Hussein had been "effectively contained".
He also reveals that British officials warned US diplomats that bringing down the Iraqi dictator would lead to the chaos the world has since witnessed. "I remember on several occasions the UK team stating this view in terms during our discussions with the US (who agreed)," he said.

It shows Mr. Ross told the inquiry, chaired by Lord Butler, "there was no intelligence evidence of significant holdings of CW [chemical warfare], BW [biological warfare] or nuclear material" held by the Iraqi dictator before the invasion. "There was, moreover, no intelligence or assessment during my time in the job that Iraq had any intention to launch an attack against its neighbors or the UK or the US," he added.

Mr. Ross's evidence directly challenges the assertions by the Prime Minster that the war was legally justified because Saddam possessed WMDs which could be "activated" within 45 minutes and posed a threat to British interests. These claims were also made in two dossiers, subsequently discredited, in spite of the advice by Mr. Ross.

Mr. Ross said in late 2002 that he "discussed this at some length with David Kelly", the weapons expert who a year later committed suicide when he was named as the source of a BBC report saying Downing Street had "sexed up" the WMD claims in a dossier. The Butler inquiry cleared Mr. Blair and Downing Street of "sexing up" the dossier, but the publication of the Carne Ross evidence will cast fresh doubts on its findings.

Mr Ross, 40, was a highly rated diplomat but he resigned because of his misgivings about the legality of the war. He still fears the threat of action under the Official Secrets Act.

You state that you are not against voter ID but question the need for it? The need is to prevent ones that are registered to vote in multiple places such as the college kids that vote in their home towns and then in their college towns. You do know that even if you present ID or having someone vouch for your ID to register does not prevent someone else from using your name when voting ? One of the biggest voting scams is using an elderly person's name which is legally registered to vote but is unable to vote due to health reasons. People that are deceased are still registered to vote (since names of the deceased have not been purged from many rolls) and names are still legal on the voting rolls. What is to prevent someone using their names to vote ? Photo ID !!!! Against the law ? Shop lifting is also, but it happens every minute.
But you know those things since you are not against asking for ID's when voting.

Now are you 100% positive that NO DIRECTIVE WAS GIVEN TO STAND DOWN ? What is the reason that Obama has not allowed the release of all pertinent videos, communications and statements dealing with events during those critical hours ? Protocal dealing with United States Property under attack ? You do know that the Embassy is United States Property and we have the right and obligation to protect our property and American lifes ? Obama as an incompetent commander in chief might use that lame excuse but it doesn't fly. I would not want to be part of the US Military today with him as the ultimate decision maker, since he has clearly shown to be inept in protecting Americans.
