In Benghazi timeline, CIA errors but no evidence of conspiracy
A detailed CIA timeline of the assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi paints an anguishing picture of embattled Americans waiting for Libyan security forces who didn’t come and courageous CIA officers who died on a rooftop without the heavy weapons they needed, trying to protect their colleagues below.
It’s a story of individual bravery, but also of a CIA misjudgment in relying on Libyan militias and a newly formed Libyan intelligence organization to keep Americans safe in Benghazi.
While there were multiple errors that led to the final tragedy, there’s no evidence that the White House or CIA leadership deliberately delayed or impeded rescue efforts.
The CIA is now reviewing its security plans around the world to make sure the agency isn’t relying on shaky local forces. This is a difficult task because the United States has vulnerable arrangements in dozens of places.

Don't get me wrong. The Benghazi thing was horrible. I know it, you know it. Mistakes were made.
My point dear, is that the entire Iraq war was a useless fiasco, brought on by a Republican administration. They thought that they had ALL the answers. Turned out they were wrong. Wasteful. Think for a minute about the thousands of people that lost their lives.
You have made some mistakes, in your personal life? We as people are not infallible.
Mistakes?!?! Ignoring requests for assistance from people who are facing death is NOT A MISTAKE!, my friend. It is blatant arrogance and incompetence, things that this President is famous for.

There will be blood coursing in torrents down the streets the first day, you'll have to wade through it to get to 7-11, and platoons of cops will be slaughtered indiscriminately. You think he doesn't know this? You think Congress doesn't know this?
Don't believe everything you read, chicken little. That email has been circulating for two years, and gun shows have since been doing a HUGE and thriving business. Our guns aren't going anywhere, and the military isn't about to turn on citizens. Mass desertion will become the order of the day.
He and Congress know that too.
None of these things happened when they confiscated guns in England. Never underestimate the power of the U.S. Government or U.N. forces.

Obama believed his policies made the Muslim world, if not love us, at least see us as a friend of the downtrodden Muslims, hence the lax security at embassies and consulates. Armed Marines with
M-4s pointed towards the Muslim citizen didn't fit the Kumbaya image that Obama tried to project to the nation and the world. Bin Laden was taken out via intelligence gathered by policies implemented under George Bush.Obama just happened to be in office when bin Laden was found and according to the highly decorated former SEAL, Chris Kyle , the most lethal sniper in American history, Obama didn't make the call.Other former SEALS agree.
Another right winger passing along DB's lies like a baton on a relay race. It was House Republicans who cut funding for diplomatic security moron. They cut $128 million from the administration's request in fiscal 2011 and $331 million for fiscal 2012. GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, Rep. Darrell Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.
Bush never put much effort into getting Bin Laden because he was too valuable as a bogeyman to trot out at opportune times. He even stated;
"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."
- G.W. Bush, 3/13/02
Obama during the 2008 campaign stated on several occasions that he would take Bin Laden out which he did.
Chris Kyle never stated that Obama didn't make the call liar. Only the Commander in Chief has the authority to sign off on an operation of that magnitude.
You're an idiot.

There is absolutely nothing in the U.S. Constitution that mentions anything at all about abortion. I find it interesting that nobody I have ever met who is pro-abortion was ever aborted themselves.

Sounds like they could use those supplies sent from the Romney rally if ONLY someone could off-load the trucks.
Only union-workers are allowed to offload the trucks.

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.
Did Clinton hit on your daughter?

When the Republican party left the country is such bad shape, this is what it takes to fix when Republicans make it that bad. I suggest you read about the great Depression and see how long it took to fix the problem. If you just think about it you will surmise how hard it is to get a economy going again. It isn't tax breaks to the rich because they would take it to somewhere that has less risk. It took the government to do it. They care about the country where business care about the dollar. It really is easy to understand. You just need to open your mind.
Obama/Biden for the whole Country USA
The economy usually gets better when a Republican Congress is in control of spending and a Democrat president moves center.

It usually gets worse when a Democrat Congress is in control of spending and a Democrat president remains immoveably far left.

Things didn't get any better with a Democrat Congress and a Democrat president for two years. Neither has it gotten any better with a Democrat controlled Senate and a Democrat president the past two years - 2 out of 3 stacked against Republicans.

It's amazing you can't see that. The only hope we have is if Republicans win back the Senate and keep the House - when it's stacked 2 out of 3 against the president if Obama should win. That's what happened under Clinton.

The housing market crisis was something altogether different since both parties ignored the warnings.

A Democrat Congress was in control of spending before it happened, but it's easier to blame a Republican president who issued the warnings.

Good morning.
