LOL, you've got how many prisoners in Gitmo? What did that solve?
They haven't even been charged, they have to be let go.
Are you saying that you and the rightwingers are opposed to the use of drones?
Would Mitt Romney have dismantled the drone program? for what? more invasions of ground troops resulting in more American casualties?
President Obama is the President; he's not a dictator. The surviving brother is a U.S. citizen, committed a crime in the U.S. and has been arrested and will never be out of prison.
Are you saying that you would like the President to be a supreme dictator and decide who is subjected to the justice system?
You rightwingers just spew more and more nonsense everyday.
They are prisoners of war. They don't need to be charged with anything.

What Benghazi Tells Us About the GOP Brand

The GOP is now in the position that Carter’s party was in, and in contrast Obama has acquired something like Reagan’s “Teflon” coating—as the Benghazi episode illustrates. Benghazi was a national humiliation, caught the administration in a tangle of its own words, and should have raised serious questions about why we were in Libya in the first place. Americans, including an ambassador, had died, and Obama’s signature foreign-policy intervention was the strategic backdrop. It happened shortly before an election, yet Obama took no damage from it. Instead, Republicans who insisted that this was a great scandal came off looking like unpatriotic kooks to non-Republicans. Why?

It’s a simple matter of trust: the nation now trusts Democrats more than Republicans on foreign policy, and Iraq is largely the reason for that. This gives Obama and his party a margin for error: his Benghazi screw-up is seen as an aberration, much as Reagan’s Lebanon humiliation was. It doesn’t fit the brand’s reputation for leadership, and that reputation is stronger in the public mind than the impression made by an incident even as gruesome as the Beirut barracks attack or the murder of an ambassador.

Coca-Cola knows how this works. If a customer gets one flat bottle of pop, he won’t flee from Coke to Pepsi or RC. He may be unhappy with this particular experience, but the brand is strong enough that it shapes a storyline even for the dissatisfied customer: this was a one-off mistake; you trust the brand, and that counts for more than what you see with your eyes or taste with your tongue. Trust trumps experience, up to a point.

The point beyond which trust doesn’t trump experience? A failed war, for one thing.

The only reference I could find to the CIA base which wasn't even relevant was protecting the names of those who might be in covert operations.
So what does that have to do with Hillary telling one of the victims's families at the funeral they would find who was responsible for "that video"?
"That video" is just the top layer of many layers of the entire coverup controversy. The CIA base had nothing to do with lying to the American public and the timing of an upcoming election.
The referenced CIA base was irrelevant? Honey, that was the sight of the second attack, the one where Ty Woods and Glen Doherty died. You might be confused because it's been referred to as the CIA annex rather than base.

Basically__what you're saying is that you don't have a fn clue what happened so you'll just go with the FOX rewrite.

BTW the CIA base was right around the corner from the Benghazi embassy compound and may have housed over two dozen CIA military contractors and God knows what else. Petreaus's squeeze Broadwell stated that it had been used to house prisoners. OH MY__who might have shared that info with her. Whatever__the base can be found on google earth where it's clearly Identified as the CIA annex.

I grouped a segment of Christians that are overly aggressive in pushing their religion.

I don't like "Tea Party" Republicans.
I don't like people that abuse animals.
Note that I describe actions, not attributes such as race, creed, sexual orientation, religion, skin color, etc.
ACTIONS
During the 2012 Presidential race, Romney's religion was a factor. Some members of the religious right stayed home. My saying that does not make me a bigot.
Now, I can understand your desire to pin that label on me because I have pointed out your use of racial slurs over & over. So why does a racist POS like you care? To you, being a racist f*ck is fine but OMG don't talk about a certain group of Christians? Really?

So, there was this video.
This video caused rioting in numerous Middle Eastern cities & in other Muslim communities.
But Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooo. Not in Benghazi.
Nope.
It was just impossible!!!!!!!!!!
Couldn't have been a factor at all so lets just ignore it and not consider it.
In the days following the Benghazi attack, that video was cited as a possible cause. There was not enough information to eliminate it.
So off goes Carol, Romney, McCain having a GD fit because this possibility was stated. OMG OMG the word "terror" wasn't used enough or fast enough. OMG OMG OMG.
You people are dumber than sh*t. WTF difference would it make if Obama ran screaming though the streets screaming "Terrorist Attack" or if we proceed with caution to actually find out for sure?
Republicans are using the death of a US ambassador for political gain. First to attack Obama & Now to try to eliminate their number one opponent in 2016, Hilary Clinton
And you are dumb enough to believe it.
Lets take this State Department worker who was in Tripoli use his extensive military experience to critique the military response. Oh wait, Hicks has not the military experience & knowledge.
Benghazi will end up being just anther example of Republicans putting their party ahead of country.
Why the Hell, is the private sector having to deal with the remains of a NON-US citizen terrorist??????

Time for the kiddies in the current admin of government to GROW UP, accept some actual responsibility and the WORK of the JOBS they were elected to do so!!!

And Shame on them for NOT having done so already!!!! Duhmmies.
