It's just a photo, we are all aging, no one gets younger. Hillary has been one of the hardest working Secretary of State, she's 65 now. I admire her.
Hard work does not necessarily equate to benefits for the USA. I will agree that she did work hard in the Benghazi coverup, trying to take the heat off the rightful owner, Obama.

You respect that, I do not. If she was a true patriot, she would resign.

She's aged 15 years in just 4!

What apology tour?
Which fact checker would you like? Politifact? FactCheck? American Conservative? This is the internet. Where truncated quotes can fact checked for full context.
But I agree with the rest of that paragraph. The second wanders into opinion, which I care not to take as the gospel until we know the full story.
What Happened in Benghazi
Though I am in no way a fan of President Obama’s foreign and security policies, the flailing that the Republican Party is engaging in at the moment to demonstrate some kind of cover-up in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack reveals a complete lack of understanding of how intelligence collection and analysis works. David Ignatius explores the subject in an op-ed,“CIA documents supported Susan Rice’s description of Benghazi attacks.”
Ignatius observes that intelligence is developed when something happens and that evidence is frequently “fragmentary and conflicting.” While there may be such a thing as incontrovertible facts relating to any incident, that solid information is something that frequently cannot be easily discerned. Ignatius notes that Republicans have been beating Obama over the head most recently with the assertion that there was a CIA Station Chief cable the day after the killing of the ambassador that indicated that the attack had been planned and organized by a militant group. But I would bet that there were at least 15 other reports that went out the same day that provided alternative scenarios. If you intercept a cell phone call in which someone is claiming credit for organizing an attack, is he speaking the truth or is he boasting and trying to take credit for some reason or other? If a source in a militia is claiming that he knows who ordered the attack, does he have an agenda that is driving his claim? All of that has to be sorted out, which takes time and cross checking.
Of course there is a coverup...otherwise they wouldn't have sounded so SURE it was because of a stupid U-tube video nobody saw.

If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, you don't try to convince people it is a parakeet while you are supposedly "checking the facts." I'd sooner believe them had they said they would not comment until they knew "everything," but to try to convince the American people it was something it was not, smacks of COVERUP. And they put so much effort into doing that...spinning on every possible Sunday show available to them.

And whoever was attacking, it is unforgiveable that no definitive help was sent immediately.

I realize that a revisionist historian & military expert like yourself thinks they know more than the military commanders.
I have news, you don't know sh*t.
Actually, the 2 that were killed on the roof had pinpointed where the mortar fire was coming from with lasers. If there had been an aircraft flying interception for them, they would have known exactly where to fire.

Blind partisan lemming Bootlicker.
So you think Obama should personally evaluate requests for "MORE security" at all our overseas placements? And just what role should professional veteran military and state department staff play? Are you really that ignorant regarding how troops are allocated?

Sure, but aging 15 years in 4?
65? Well, that leaves her out for a 2016 run.
She has the money to consider cosmetic surgery to reverse that haggardness she's carrying on her face, lest Billy Boy goes and finds himself another sweet young thang.
Hillary stayed with the cheatin' bastard to advance her political career. Well, her biznezz.

Respect? Debatable.

As one of the hardest working Secretary of State she received little appreciation, and alot of wear and tear to show for it on her face. Pretty thankless job if you ask me.
Ask Condi Rice. Now Condi, I have great respect for.
She's All Class.
And surpasses Hillary in intelligence, integrity and grace, IMO.

The people on the ground who actually did something to help disregarded the stand down order. How much you want to bet that means they disobeyed Obama? That dirtbag knew what was going on, for sure.
There will be a movie about this disgusting Obama scandal, mark my words.
The original event, at the consulate, unfolded so quickly that it was over before Da Bammy or just about anyone in the US learned about it. From the consulate the battle sort of worked it's way to the CIA annex__there was some small arms fire and perhaps a RPG or two along the roadway. There were, however, two distinct battles and the jury is sill out on the length of time the annex was under fire.

The problem is that the American people who were actually have not yet contributed to how the event unfolded and the local Libyans are all over the place with their reports. The 17th of February brigade/militia and Ansar al-Sharia are similar if not the same group. Why was that group along Fourth Ring setting up blockades? Were they the attackers or the saviors? Were there twenty as reported in the first e-mail or 150 as reported days later at

IMO the right wing broadcasts and blogs have fkd this story up so badly that we'll never learn what really happened.

We're talking about the Apology Tour Obama made when he went around the world insulting the United States.
It couldn't have been more of an Apology Tour if Obama was holding a sign saying "I'm sorry" in one hand, and a tin cup in the other.
Yup, that apology tour, dufus.
There was no apology tour. There was no apology for America.

Thee should be an apology tour however,

Paul Ryan needs to apologize to the American people for voting yes yes yes in the policies under Bush that created this recesion.
