<quoted text>So you don't have any recollection of the training that the Bin Laden Seals went through prior to the actual raid?
The US Benghazi mission and the CIA base were located between two hospitals and a university, if you weren't such a lazy bioch you would already know that.
So if you were the ambassador or one of the three other Americans, you'd be okay telling yourself this knowing you were going to die?

It's you who must not have any recollection of the urgent requests for more security that were denid a month in advance.

Wise up, Realtime.

At age 41, Jeff Fort is the nightmare of the 1960s that just won't go away. He made his reputation in that tumultuous decade as one of the leaders of the Blackstone Rangers street gang and its successor, the Black P Stone Nation. Hated and harassed by the police, admired and feared by thousands of poor black kids, embraced and funded by well-intentioned idealists trying to end gang violence and attack poverty and racism, he played a role in the lives of some of the biggest names in town: Richard J. Daley and his son, Charles Percy, Jim Thompson, James Montgomery, Jane Byrne, and Jesse Jackson, to name a few."

Fort remains in prison, "the first man in the United States to be convicted of terrorism," for trying to cut a deal with recently-executed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in which his El Rukns would serve as terrorist hitmen:$2.5 million to commit terrorism against the U.S.

Or you uncover the ass in you that God made!
"Bill Clinton got head from Lewinsky, he did nothing wrong."

Can you explain this insane stupidity in a sane way?

Lewinsky was given top security clearance to wander the White House because Bubba enjoyed screwing her lips and you say that he did nothing wrong?

Do you realize(probably not) how many politicians have been brought down by sex-kitten spies?

...and this piece of Arkansas used car salesman trash plays with the security of my country from the most powerful office on the face of this planet.

Did nothing wrong?

That's a fact. Look at how they attacked NJ Raider about a month ago over the phag/gay issue because NJ Raider didn't go along. The DemocRATS here were like a bunch of piranha fish.
The sad part is even when the Democrat Political Hacks (including Obama) present an obscenely ridiculous lie, the Kool-Aid drinking Bobbleheads just ask for more.
The lefties are also silent on NJ raider's frequent posts reducing women to meat.

Activities by criminal nations like Iran, North Korea, and Pok-E-Ston may be different.
Regardless of your politics, a return to nuclear power will occur of necessity. There is no viable alternative at present.
Tried that ;didn't happen when George W Bush tried to jump-start a nuclear renaissance in the U S in 2005(mostly on borrowed Chinese money),but Wall Street refused to go along because nukes are the worst, riskiest speculative bets in the market. Get it;the irony here? Wall Street banks who nearly brought down the entire U S financial system and ignited a world-wide recession with risky, speculative bets on exotic derivatives trading told Bush that NUKES were TOO RISKY even for them to invest their money in!

Just months after being slimed by President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, Mitt Romney supporter and businessman Frank VanderSloot was informed that he was going to be audited not only by the Internal Revenue Service, but by the Labor Department as well.
VanderSloot’s saga was told by columnist Kimberley Strassel in the Wall Street Journal last July.
In April 2012, VanderSloot, who served as the national co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential finance committee, was one of eight Romney backers to be defamed as ”wealthy individuals with Two months later, the IRS informed VanderSloot he and his wife were going to be audited, Strassel reported. Two weeks after that, VanderSloot was notified by the Labor Department that it was going to “audit workers he employs on his Idaho-based cattle ranch under the federal visa program for temporary agriculture workers,” reported Strassel.
“The H-2A program allows tens of thousands of temporary workers in the U.S.; Mr. VanderSloot employs precisely three,” Strassel wrote.“All are from Mexico and have worked on the VanderSloot ranch—which employs about 20 people—for five years. Two are brothers. Mr. VanderSloot has never been audited for this, though two years ago his workers’ ranch homes were inspected.(The ranch was fined $8,400, mainly for too many ‘flies’ and for ‘grease build-up’ on the stove. God forbid a cattle ranch home has flies.)”
“This letter requests an array of documents to ascertain whether Mr. VanderSloot’s ‘foreign workers are provided the full scope of protections’ under the visa program: information on the hours they’ve worked each day and their rate of pay, an explanation of their deductions, copies of contracts,” she continued.
In her column, Strassel raised the specter that the IRS targeted VanderSloot for his political activism.

What a joke. It's like the Democrats want high unemployment and for everyone to live in caves like they do mentally.
Meanwhile, you have the Learjet Liberals like Al "Jazeera" Gore flying around and going back to his dump that is a 20 carbon footprint house.
Wonder how Tipper is doing?
You got that reversed . Republican lackeys of Big Business want high unemployment and recession because it puts downward pressure on wages of employees who worry more about keeping a job than safety and benefit issues. And if you can't keep wages down far enough then Republicans will pass bills to block minimum wage increases, eliminate overtime pay for employees, and block every jobs bill Obama has ever favored even republican job bills.

Blix expressed skepticism over Iraq's claims to have destroyed its stockpiles of anthrax and VX nerve agent in Time magazine[citation needed].

"I don't see that they have acquired any credibility," Blix said[citation needed]. "There has to be solid evidence of everything, and if there is not evidence, or you can't find it, I simply say,'Sorry, I don't find any evidence,' and I cannot guarantee or recommend any confidence."[citation needed]
About Bush's "supposed" promise...
In March 2003, after UNMOVIC's efforts to verify Iraq's disarmament, Blix expressed skepticism over Iraq's claims to have destroyed its stockpiles of anthrax and VX nerve agent in Time magazine.
He said he found it "a bit odd" that Iraq with "one of the best-organized regimes in the Arab world" would claim to have no records of the destruction of these illegal substances.
He went on to say, "I don't see that they have acquired any credibility."
George W. Bush gave Saddam Hussein an ultimatum to leave power, the UN pulled out all the inspectors from Iraq and, days later, the invasion began.
Saddam had been given his last chance.
Let me redo this.

At various points over the past two years, IRS officials singled out for scrutiny not only groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names but also nonprofit groups that criticized the government and sought to educate Americans about the U.S. Constitution, according to documents in an audit conducted by the agency’s inspector general.

Don't blame the Liberal Media if you feel asleep halfway through Obama's press conference on a slow news day.
