Insult? I give you facts, what you do with them is your problem. Besides, it's all about the kids, that's our main concern here, isn't it?

This is why Obama got elected again because of you right wing idiots that get their version of facts off Faux News. Lets be clear, it's not news its a bunch of right wing loony opinions, so they say whatever they want and then it becomes facts with you lot.

This story is like the birther crap, trying to make something out of nothing. In the end what difference does it make, not a damn thing and besides its the Republican congress who cut the spending on foriegn missions so who is really responsible here ?
Imagine the noise you guys would make had all those killed in Algeria were Americans. This is an African country who sent in their so called Elite troops and got everyone killed. Had it been the English SAS , US Seals or the Israeli elite troops the result might have been a whole lot different. But as you can see, having elite troops on standby for any trouble spot erupting around the world is an impossible ask. Even a US Oil rig taken by terrorists off shore in US waters would involve delay in response time. So trying to convince anyone that Obama dropped the ball because a Embassy was left unguarded in a country with no law and order and no structure at the time is total bs.

You're right. Let's be clear, there is a major coverup going on right now! Can you "cowboy up" and swallow the truth? A damn 6th grader could look at this situation and see something doesn't make sense. Sell you garbage elsewhere.

This is NOT from Fox News:

On Tuesday, CBS's Sharyl Attkisson broke on Twitter that the Obama administration "has indicated that it will not be answering Benghazi question we've been asking since Oct." Attkisson, who has provided hard-hitting reporting on the September 11, 2012 Islamist attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, listed many of the questions that the executive branch has yet to answer about the story.

The journalist noted in a later Tweet that "CBS News FOI'd Benghazi info from State Dept, CIA, FBI and Defense Dept. None has been provided." Attkisson also pointed out a false claim by the administration:

Additionally, CBS News has repeatedly requested the promised surveillance video from Benghazi but it has not been provided. We've also asked for any White House photos taken that night, as well as an accounting of Pres. Obama's decisions and actions. None has been provided....At a press conference 11/14/12, President Obama stated that his Admin. has provided all info regarding 'what happened in Benghazi.'

Same as Fast & Furious. When Congress gets too close, the Boy Messiah tells ATF and Justice to simply clam up and tells Congress that law breaking committed by him and his crew are none of their f*cking business.

And then Benghazi. Same thing. Everyone has been told to lie, lie, lie and then lie some more. Susan Rice lied so much that she became nauseous and had to leave because she became a liability. The Jerk-In-Chief lied his azz off about how that infamous video was at the core of the attack.

Too much water has gone over the damn for the Boy Messiah to try pulling it back up so the only options left open to a scumbag like him is this: 1.) Keep lying your ass off and 2.) Refuse to release any information. Executive privilege, ya know. 3.) Change the national dialogue from administration incompetence to some lofty bullshit like Climate Change, Gun Control and gay marriage.

...and the First Slut's new hairdo...

Algeria has decided that survival of their government in the face of terrorists is more important than the lives of hostages. Perhaps they are correct.

Who wants Christie??????

Like I said, dems won't have a chance in 4 more years. Our country will be in such shambles that your party's future will be "uncertain and shrinking".

Correct. Hillary is likely to defeat Christie for the Democrat nomination.

Now that women are eligible for combat, they should also be required to register for Selective Service and be drafted for the next Vietnam.
