Carney maintained his line that the Benghazi question is politically motivated and fueled by House Speaker John Boehner, whom he accused of being ‘obsessed’ with the topic. The episode, he said Tuesday, is little more than a ‘clear political circus.’
Carney bristled at a question about whether it was fair to draw comparisons between the administration's responses and those during the Richard Nixon presidency, bemoaning 'the rapid politicization of everything’.
'I can tell you that the people who make those kinds of comparisons need to check their history,' Carney insisted,“because, you know, what we have here with one issue – Benghazi – is so clearly, as we’re learning more and more, a political sideshow. A deliberate effort to politicize a tragedy.”
‘If you look at the facts, and I think Benghazi is instructive on this, the real issue is that four Americans died,' he said.
The comment is reminiscent of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s testimony before a congressional panel that it didn't matter whether the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. personnel were caused by a terror attack or a spontaneous protest.
‘What difference, at this point, does it make?’ Clinton famously asked.
OBAMA ADMINSTRATION DOESN'T CARE ABOUT DEAD AMERICANS/sounds likwe KATRINA
This is the typical tactic of liars and deceivers:

First - They don't have all the facts.
Second - They're still investigating the facts.
Finally - Eight months later and still no facts, it's "old news".

On Oct 7th when military operation began, we were bombing& destroying terrorist training camps.

The US had attacked other suspected terrorists locations in other countries like the Sudan.

We did not need to invade to destroy these camps.

Think of Rove like your Soros.

Maybe it will put things into perspective.

Rove no longer has any influence but he and Soros have always just worked behind the scenes.

No, the fact that it is a tax is of critical importance.

That wasn't the only reason numbnuts. Removal of the Taliban government required boots on the ground.

Prince Harry is a very talented polo player--he can afford the ponies--but that was my point, this didn't seem to have any relevance to politics or O'Malley's favor-ability ratings. How many polo matches have you been invited to?

<quoted text> They will never admit to this because to do so is to admit that Saddam was also supporting terrorist for the reason to invade. Blows up their whole world view.
Saddam was getting old (born 1937) he was slowly but surely losing control of Iraq's Shiia and Kurdish communities__the Baath Party was losing influence and his sons (heirs) were fkn morons incapable of controlling the military, Baath Party or managing the nations oil business.

Saddam was a paper tiger, the paper tiger who knowing that it wouldn't end well faced off against the most powerful (by far) military force on the planet.

It was a stupid war__it was ill conceived, poorly managed yet it cost the US trillion$ of dollar$ the respect of many allies and even foes.

A former US President, Vice President and certain appointees cannot travel abroad comfortably, Generals were shamed and on and on.

Maybe I should spell it out to you like you're a 4-year-old then.

I NOW supplement my family's income working part-time at home as I have done for the past 5 years.

I WILL in the near future supplement my SS income doing another part-time job that will not affect receiving SS and still supplement my family's income.

(I gave up teaching to learn a new career that would allow me to work from home and still raise my daughter, working full-time with a flexible schedule while being there for her 100%.

I'm actually proud of that.)
