Oh, um, sure. Then why, pray tell does the officer corps get so upset when one of the troops rolls a grenade into their tent?

"Mired in Libya"? Really? How are we mired in Libya?
Libya has a radical Islamist government, sponsored by Obama, and armed with US weapons. Libya is now a training ground for terrorists.

What's wrong with this picture:'The wife is out ridin' her new Harley, and I'm home alone'? Yes I too am overwhelmingly attracted to late middle-aged women on motorcycles (cough.) It's probably the generous leathers with the stiching straining to keep up with the effects of gravity? In any event, how does one know she's out,'ridin' her new Harley?' Isn't Harley the name of the bartender down at Mike's Saloon? Oh... I see that's what you meant. You're describing a marriage that's breaking up by objectifying her - the wife - and then identifying the culprit. Sorry, DB you'll need to refocus closer to home.

Better not wait too much longer, honey, or someone might forget why we need them.

The attack started at 9:42 Benghazi time. That is 3:42 D.c. time. It ended at 5:15 Benghazi time. That's 11:15 D.C. time.

I think you people need to read the transcripts from yesterday's hearings. Panetta is not following your story line.

Fox's Hannity Joins Right-Wing Media In Selectively Editing Panetta's Testimony

Following in the footsteps of others in the right-wing media, Fox News host Sean Hannity selectively edited a video of outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to portray President Obama as "virtually absent" during the September 2012 attack on a diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. In fact, Panetta testified that White House officials were kept informed of events throughout the incident.

On the February 7 edition of his Fox News program, Hannity said "a major bombshell was revealed" during Panetta's testimony during a congressional briefing that Obama "was virtually absent" during the Benghazi attack. Hannity then played segments of Panetta's testimony.

But Hannity did not air the section of Panetta's testimony in which he pointed out that information about the attack "went to the White House" and that Obama stayed in contact with military officials and was "well-informed" during the attack. Hannity also failed to air a clip of Gen. Martin Dempsey stating that White House staff "was engaged with the national military command center pretty constantly through the period, which is the way it would normally work."

Hannity joins numerous other right-wing outlets in selectively editing the testimony of Panetta and Dempsey.

Oh... wait... you mean they're not required to obey unlawful orders as long as they don't do anything about them? That seems a little counter-productive?

A Ku Klux Klan leader named Edward, who goes by the title “KKK Exalted Cyclops,” is promising the “largest” rally in Memphis history after the city decided to remove Confederate names from three parks.

In an 9-0 vote on Tuesday night, the Memphis City Council approved temporary names for three Confederate-themed parks. Forest Park will become “Health Sciences Park,” Confederate Park will be called “Memphis Park” and Jefferson Davis Park will get the name “Mississippi River Park.”

You’re going to see the largest rally Memphis, Tennessee has ever seen,” he promised.“It’s not going to be 20 or 30, it’s going to be thousands of Klansmen from the whole United States coming to Memphis, Tennessee.”

After outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified before Congress on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, The Weekly Standard selectively cropped a portion of his testimony and blogged that Panetta found Obama to be "absent" the night of the assault. The Weekly Standard's attack on Obama subsequently made the conservative media rounds to Fox Nation, The Drudge Report, The Daily Caller, Breitbart.com , and Fox News.
