FACT: Someone gave the order to deny that embassy more security a month before the attack after repeated and urgent requests.
QUESTION: Who denied them that request and why?
FACT: A 4 to 5 hour time span between the first attack that killed the ambassador and one American and the second attack that killed the other two Americans was time enough to save the second two Americans.
QUESTION: Who gave the order for the CIA to step down resulting in two more Americans' deaths and why?

What makes you think that you are that important as to have access to classified information? Instead of whining on here about it, maybe you should write a letter to the President and Hillary Clinton directly, see if they answer your demands!!!!

Jason Chaffetz Admits House GOP Cut Funding For Embassy Security:'You Have To Prioritize Things'

For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world. In fiscal year 2011, lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration's request for embassy security funding. House Republicans drained off even more funds in fiscal year 2012 -- cutting back on the department's request by $331 million.

Rep. Darrell Issa must be ruing his bad luck. The hearing he carefully orchestrated to pick at the scab of Benghazi was stepped on by the verdict in the Jodi Arias murder trial and by the story of three women held captive and brutalized for a decade in Cleveland. He was out-sensationalized and out-tawdried this week despite his own best efforts and those of his committee colleagues and staff members.[...] Nothing spoken of in the hearing suggested a cover-up by a Cabinet secretary, who instantly took personal responsibility for the attacks and swiftly appointed an independent commission led by two of the most distinguished, nonpartisan career civil servants in recent American history to investigate them. To say otherwise is more than a reach. It's an effort by the Republican Party to damage the person most likely to be the next Democratic presidential candidate.
In the calculus of Washington today, Clinton is a bigger and more valuable target even than her former boss, the president.

Let us go through some of your 'facts'.

<quoted text>

FACT: An ambassasdor hasn't been killed abroad since the 1970s.[The U.S. ambassador to Cyprus under the Ford(R) administration, Davies was killed by sniper fire during a demonstration against American policy ...]
FACT: Someone gave the order to deny that embassy more security a month before the attack after repeated and urgent requests.[ Darrell Issa(R) voted to cut the State Department's embassy security budget.]
QUESTION: Who denied them that request and why?[Darrell Issa(R)
FACT: A 4 to 5 hour time span between the first attack that killed the ambassador and one American and the second attack that killed the other two Americans was time enough to save the second two Americans.[Auntie Lou say(R)
QUESTION: Who gave the order for the CIA to step down resulting in two more Americans' deaths and why?[In the estimation of more detached senior Pentagon officials, the team would not have been able to reach Benghazi in time ]
FACT: The information the WH received was changed from a terrorist attack to a spontaneous mob blamed on a video.[Wrong. The CIA admitted that they edited out a reference to terrorism in UN ambassador Susan Rice's talking points to protect U S sources in the ongoing investigation in Libya]
QUESTION: Who made that decision and why?[CIA]
QUESTION: Why was that lie continued in televised interview and at the victims' funerals and in front of the UN two weeks later?[It wasn't; all intelligence sources believed that there were connections to the Cairo riots set off by the 'video' and the hostility of the Benghazi attackers ]
QUESTION: What were the motives for perpetrating that lie?[Again, speculation isn't a lie--look it up.]
QUESTION: Why was the second in command on the ground, Hicks, who became the first in command after the attacks demoted by Hillary Clinton when he chose to come forward?[Hicks broke with State Department policy .'A State Department official said Mr. Hicks had been free to talk to Mr. Chaffetz, but that department policy required a department lawyer to be present during interviews for any Congressional investigation.'
QUESTION: Why would the former Secretary of State do that if there was nothing to hide?[The Secretary of State is responsible for State Department policy.]
None of these questions have been answered. Even after 8 months.
Yes, all the questions have been answered]The same conclusions were made as the first Congressional Report on Benghazi--some mistakes were made , but no evidence that there was ever a cover-up or attempt made to deceive the public or Congress. In other words, no 'smoking gun'. Check this out: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/09/us/politics...

Consumer Reports says that the Tesla S is the best car it's tested since 2007.

That gives a boost to the announcement that Tesla Motors has become profitable and driving it's stock price up 19% to nearly $67 per share.
