I wonder how many CIA bases were attacked while shrub was POTUS? You do know that Woods and Doherty died defending the CIA base and not the consulate right?
That sort of stuff is usually kept secret, having the names of the operatives and contractors made public kinda ruins their gig.
Maybe you should do your own homework for a change. You're a big boy now.

Look up the number of U.S. embassies attacked last year.

Begin with Egypt and work your way up to Benghazi.

In the meantime, don't play with jack hammers.

Hi flack. Sorry it took so long to get back to you.
Yes, I did see it. It definitely would be a major breakthrough. Game changing in fact. Just don't think I'd want to be the guinea pig.
But I'll stay tuned and keep up on it for sure.
Not a problem. New stuff coming out every day. It's exciting.

OK, but please explain your previous statement that "the red line doesn't work if the rebels are the guilty party."

Is Obama's "red line" one-way only?

There have been absolutely no conclusions made or anyone held accountable. Why do you think this isn't going away?
The NY Times wouldn't believe there was a smoking gun if they were shot point blank in the head with it. They are another lapdog propagandist. The pet lapdog.
“I’m curious, did you learn anything new today?” Fox News host Greta Van Susteren asked Issa in an interview after the hearing. After meandering around for a bit, Issa finally got to the hearing’s grand revelation — Benghazi was a terror attack:

ISSA: I think the American people learned today from these brave witnesses, these whistleblowers, that the facts as we were told before during and after the attack at Benghazi just simply aren’t what they really were. The acting ambassador after Ambassador Stevens was murdered, told us in great detail about what happened that day and what happened in the days to follow and why we should know that he knew and everyone else in the mission knew from the moment it happened, from the get-go, as he said, that this was a terrorist attack.

After days of hype about mindblowing new information. And, of course, President Obama called it an “act of terror” within a day of the attack. So, yeah, all that new information turned out to ba a big nothing. Your wanna-be scandal is a big flop!

The Convenient "Scandal" Scapegoat

We're at the point now where conservatives are going to have to start acknowledging that Barack Obama is the most talented politician in American history. By their own reckoning, the president's five years in office have been marked by so many Watergates, Iran-Contras, and combinations thereof that he should have been driven from office several times over by this point. And yet Obama was easily reelected and enjoys an approval rating in the mid to high-40s. How is this possible?

The explanation, it turns out, is the same explanation the right turns to whenever faced with political adversity: the media. It's all the media's fault. The corruption and various misdeeds of the Obama administration are manifest, but the public never catches on because the press covers it all up and throws out distractions to keep attention focused elsewhere.

When you actually write it out like that it sounds crazy. Because it is. It assumes a) close, unseen coordination between the administration and every major news outlet in America; b) close, unseen coordination between news outlets that are ostensibly competing against one another; and c) widespread moral vacuity among government officials and journalists that enables them to enthusiastically scrub away legal and ethical violations.

But that's what they're going with.

Of the approximately 30 Americans evacuated from Benini Intl airport in Benghazi at just past dawn on Sept 12 only 7 were state department employees (2 were deceased), the others were CIA personnel working under diplomatic cover.

A Libyan military force secured the area of the CIA annex and then escorted all the US personnel to the airport about 10 miles to the East.

Do we know who flew the group out of Libya? Or is that not important?

The Republicans’ Benghazi Obsession

Republicans have held numerous hearings and briefings on Benghazi and are threatening to hold even more. It is a level of interest they did not show during George W. Bush’s administration when there were 64 attacks on American diplomatic targets or in the years they spent cutting back diplomatic security budgets.

Maybe we should ask Obama to tell us the truth.

By the way, where was Obama while the attack was occurring as he left Hillary and Panetta in charge?

Same thing they do now. Live life to the fullest. You have to get out of your mind, for the most part, of old people just sitting around in nursing homes. 180 will be like 40-50. As I told my oldest daughter the other day during a talk. I don't want to die. I want to live forever. My father was born in 1921. Can you imagine how the world has changed in his lifetime? My youngest daughter was born in 2002. Her life expectancy without all the new medicine is 126 years. That means if she lives an average life she will live to 2128. We live long in this family.

Time to go.

Who's changing the subject? You said Lincoln "got me good" or something to that effect with his linkless post about the number of attacks abroad during the Bush administration.

I posted the attacks abroad on embassies and where they occurred a few pages back in 2012 and 2013.

You might have to do some leg work...or finger work...to find it.
