FRED AND PADDY SAT AND PEERED OUT INTO THE DARKNESS. A CLOUD OF VAPOR HUNG IN THE AIR AS IF POUNDED UP OUT OF THE PAVEMENT BY THE SHEER FORCE OF THE RAIN. GRADUALLY, THE TWO MEN REALIZED THEY COULD SEE TWO PAIRS OF GLOWING RED EYES STARING BACK AT THEM. THEIR HEARTBEATS QUICKENED AND INSTINCTIVELY THEY LOOKED FOR SOMEWHERE TO RUN BUT THERE WAS NOWHERE TO GO, NOTHING TO HIDE BEHIND, THIS WAS A DEAD-END AND THEY KNEW IT.

AND THEN A HOARSE, RASPY CACKLING CAME TO THEM OUT OF THE NIGHT, "WELL, WELL, WELL, WHAT DO WE HAVE HEEERE?" THE VOICE CAME CLOSER, "IF I MAY AND IF I MIGHT I SMELL TERRIFIED MEN, A HAG'S DELIGHT!"

PADDY AND FRED SHUDDERED AND WATCHED WITH ORB-LIKE EYES, FRIGHTENED OUT OF THEIR WITS, AS A DARK FIGURE SLOWLY STEPPED UP THE STAIRS TOWARDS THEM. THEY COULD ONLY SEE IT'S GLOWING RED EYES AND A BLACK SILHOUETTE. THE OTHER PAIR OF RED EYES CONTINUED TO WATCH FROM A DISTANCE AND MADE NO MOVE TOWARDS THEM.

Nice thing about anonymous internet forums.

People like you can make up any lie they wish, and there is no way to prove it either way.

But your being in jail since 18 might just prove your whole story to be a bunch of bullshit!!

...Rivera said Obama has been “absolutely slandered on this story, he’s been called a liar and a murderer.” Rivera said he thinks the president is owed an apology and held that Obama did everything he could to protect the personnel in Benghazi, and that there is no reason to criticize him for what happened the day of the attack."

SHOCK: WAPO ADDRESSES BENGHAZI ISSUE ... CITES FOX
NEWS AS SOURCE

"A security breakdown in Benghazi"
By Editorial Board,
Nov 02, 2012

"NEWS REPORTING about the Sept. 11 assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, has moved from the political and mostly pointless issue of when the Obama administration had publicly acknowledged that a terrorist attack had taken place to more essential questions: Why was there a security failure at the consulate, and how did U.S. forces in Libya and outside the country respond to the emergency? The result is a host of unanswered questions.

Following a single background briefing, the State Department has mostly refused to respond to inquiries about Benghazi, citing an ongoing investigation by a review board. But considerable evidence has emerged that Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, who died in the attack, and his security staff were deeply concerned about what they considered to be inadequate security.

Fox News reported this week that a secret cable described an Aug. 15 “emergency meeting” at the consulate, at which the State Department’s regional security officer “expressed concerns with the ability to defend Post in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited manpower, security measures, weapons capabilities, host nation support and the overall size of the compound.”

Why was the U.S. so unprepared for possible attacks?

Fox reported that the cable, dispatched to Washington, said the emergency meeting included a briefing about al-Qaeda training camps in the Benghazi area and Islamist militias, including those that allegedly carried out the Sept. 11 attack. In another cable on Sept. 11, hours before the attack, Mr. Stevens described “growing problems with security” in Benghazi and “growing frustration” with the local militias and police, to which the State Department had entrusted the consulate’s defense. Separately, according to a report on ForeignPolicy.com , Mr. Stevens may have dispatched a letter to Benghazi authorities, complaining that a policeman assigned to guard the consulate was photographing it on the morning of Sept. 11.

Fox’s aggressive reporting, though undercut by blustery and often scurrilous commentary, nevertheless seems to have prompted the CIA and Pentagon to provide reporters with their accounts of Sept. 11 — even as the State Department and the White House insist that all should await the official investigation results. From these, and a report Friday by the Wall Street Journal, it emerges that the CIA mission in Benghazi was considerably larger than the consulate and may have been partly responsible for its defense. According to the CIA account, on the night of Sept. 11 a six-member paramilitary force set out to rescue consulate personnel, arriving some 50 minutes after the attack began. Surviving Americans were evacuated to the CIA station, which itself came under attack hours later.

The Pentagon and CIA accounts describe a reaction to the attack that, while inadequate, was the best that could be mustered. Even if so, that leaves the question of why the various agencies were not better prepared for such an emergency, given the clear warnings. Did the Obama administration’s political preoccupation with maintaining a light footprint in Libya lead to an ill-considered reliance on local militias, rather than on U.S. forces? Given the region’s instability, why were no military rapid-reaction assets — such as Special Forces or armed drones — within reach of Northern Africa?

While the agencies separately defend themselves — or not — the White House appears determined to put off any serious discussion of Benghazi until after the election. Sooner or later, however, the administration must answer questions about what increasingly looks like a major security failure — and about the policies that led to it."

Two points of interest to share.

Bil Clinton was at my oldest daughters high school today. Indian River High School.

Youngest daughters last softball game this morning. Got an unexpected flt over. The F/A-18s from the Enterprise flew in from the ship. They came in over the field in formation as the girls took the field. It was so cool!

A sad note. The BIG E is scheduled to be decommissioned by December 1st. This was it's last deployment.

We had a major disaster because your nitwits have denied climate change for far too long.

Time to do something about climate change. Eliminate all coal fired electric plants, replace with natural gas.

Spend Billions on infrastructure to protect our nation from the effects of climate change, as most other nations are doing.

In other words, ignore the stupidity and lies from the right, retards like you, Fred!!

Funny how you nitwits turn on your own heroes, be it Colin Powell or Chris Christie.

I remember very clearly a young soldier ordered to "stand watch" on an Iraq street corner, just that man in his uniform holding his rifle.
Bush said the Iraqis are our friends.
The young man was shot on video in a drive by. Dead.
Multiply that by around 100,000 for dead and maimed for life.
Plus the 1.5 million Iraq dead: mostly civilian. We sure liberated them. Real good!
Now back to your Mitt Romney:
He says military build up good.
Keeping retired Medicare bad.
He says tax cuts for super rich good.
72 million uninsured allowed to purchase affordable healthcare bad.
He says can of cold corn good.
$10 bucks donation bad.
Mitt Romney: worst on earth?
How much did we pay to invade, democratize, and rebuild Iraq? Where do we go to apply for a partial refund? The Caymans?

Errant Gingrich Email:'Obama Is Going to Win'

""An email message mistakenly sent to Newt Gingrich's list serve this morning told subscribers that President Obama would no doubt win in 2012 and that they should be more worried about Obama's winning in 2016.

That's right, despite the 22nd Amendment, which limits any one person to two presidential terms, the email that went out to Gingrich's supporters suggests President Obama would be running again in 2016, and possibly serve through 2020.

The email, titled "What's really at stake this Tuesday ..." came from Gingrich Marketplace and went out to people who'd given their contact information to the Gingrich campaign when the former speaker of the House was still in the presidential race. Bygone candidates, such as Gingrich and Herman Cain, regularly rent out their email address lists to advertisers.

"The truth is, the next election has already been decided. Obama is going to win. It's nearly impossible to beat an incumbent president," advertiser Porter Stansberry wrote in the email to Gingrich supporters. "What's actually at stake right now is whether or not he will have a third-term."

Newt is worried about a third Obama term!!

That's a pretty good idea!!

ROFLMAO at the nitwits!!
