So torturing to keep American troops safe is acceptable but phone tapping to keep troops safe is crossing the line? And you called me an idiot??

Jason Chaffetz says Americans ready to save men 'getting killed' in Benghazi were told to stand down
Chaffetz told Fox News that "we had people that were getting killed, we had people who are willing to risk their lives to go save them and somebody told them to stand down."
But it’s clear from Hicks’ testimony that four Americans "getting killed" in Benghazi were already dead when the decision was made to keep the special forces team in Tripoli. The mortar attack was over. A Defense Department drone watched overhead in Benghazi as Libyan militia members helped Americans get to the airport.
Chaffetz, however, says the team was available to go save "people that were getting killed," calling the order to stand down "sickening and depressing and disgusting." His office clarifies he meant that the team might have prevented additional casualties if attacks had continued — an explanation utterly missing from his national TV appearance. We rate the claim False.

I don't know if I have actually seen a picture of Obama with his finger on a trigger killing anyone at least since he became president.
Water boarding got osama and O'bigears still says it was wrong being torture and all. Good thing former President Bush had the guts to make these terrorist give info.
Funny how you equate our bumbling president who went to bed the night terrorists were over running our building and killing our patriots with our people being in dangerous places. If we continue to say "we probably couldn't have gotten there in time to save our men" then yes we will lose more people until our people refuse to take these duty stations at all.
The wimp has taken out no one. Our dedicated people have done the fighting. O'bigears is too busy singing and hosting a party for JZ to be bothered with saving anyone.
Political fodder is exactly what O'bigears did when he left our people to die a terrible death at the hands of terrorists.
You and your lying messiah can both go to hell.
Bush got 4000 soldiers killed in Iraq. Are you saying he pulled the trigger?

Obama's program of drone strokes,which you candy assed right whiners cried about, to decimate Al Qaeda's leadership.

Bush tortured people. We used to be above that. Torture is not effective. Ask John McCain.

The Ambassador was please to go to Libya. He certainly knew the risks. The consulate in Benghazi was a temporary rented building. Typically these are constructed with many security features.

Every military person involved has said there were no options that would have saved those killed in Benghazi Libya.

But hey, keep using the death of these Americans to spread more of your pathetic lies.

You idiots keep bragging about how well wall street is doing.
At least you know, the libs are morons---we’ve only made a 31% recovery of the market highs, approximately, so far----go out and talk to real folks ... working people. Ask them how far their money goes today. Ask them if their standard of living has improved. Ask local business owners if business is easier or harder today than seven years ago. Go ask the housewives in your neighborhood, if you can find one — most families need two incomes these days, maybe more,(if they can even find a job)— what the prices at the store have done over the last five or six years. The answer you’ll get will sound something like,“The packages have gotten smaller” and/or “Prices have gone up”! If everything is so wonderful, and the Dow is hitting record highs, why isn’t everything going well on “Main Street?” Wait until Bernanke quits and quits pushing 85 billion a month into Wall Street, it's coming. He will be done in January.

Obama Scandals Evoke Unholy, Perhaps Risky GOP Glee

First, investigations are not an agenda. They can all too easily seem like a vendetta.

Second, Benghazi, the IRS and the AP subpoenas are separate issues, not joined as one, despite the Republican spin doctors' efforts to unite them into a sweeping saga of arrogance, mendacity and election-year overreach.

Third, as much pleasure as the GOP and the press may take in repeating "What did he know and when did he know it," there is as yet no evidence, and there may never be any, that President Obama knew about the IRS dragnet of conservatives, the Justice Department dragnet of the AP, or the Benghazi talking points and diplomatic security issues.

Fourth, the Republicans urgently -- for their own good -- need to work with the president and Democrats to accomplish two legislative goals that matter deeply to the GOP. Republicans need a deal on immigration reform to ward off future bludgeoning at the polls by the fast-growing cohort of Latino voters. And Republicans need a deal on Medicare and Social Security reform that has the blessing of a Democratic president. Otherwise, the GOP will continue to get bludgeoned at the polls by the fast-growing cohort of baby boomers reaching retirement age.

Lastly, and most important, Washington politics is no longer a game of seesaw: You don't rise just because your opponent falls. Months of trashing President Obama won't automatically mean happy days for the GOP.

Voters despise Washington and its partisan paralysis. They want action that tangibly improves their lives. They are justifiably furious that they aren't getting that action. They will punish whomever they most blame for the inaction.

Maybe that will be Obama. Perhaps voters will blame him, not so much for political corruption as for managerial lassitude, the old aloofness thing.

But you never know.

True the Vote received repeated questioning from the Obama IRS. Engelbrecht recently said: "Since that time the IRS has run us through a gauntlet of analysts and hundreds of questions over and over again. They’ve requested to see each and every tweet I’ve ever tweeted or Facebook post I’ve ever posted. They also asked to know every place I’ve ever spoken since our inception and to whom, and everywhere I intend to speak in the future."

They are still waiting after three years.

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.

Fox Outrage Machine Gets Desperate To Resuscitate Benghazi "Scandal"
Fox News is desperate.
The Roger Ailes scandal machine, watching its Benghazi witch hunt crumble all around it, is now trying to stoke outrage that President Obama downplayed the tragedy in Benghazi and insulted the survivors by calling it an "incident" during his May 16 comments to the press.
Here's Fox anchor Gregg Jarrett on the May 16 Happening Now reacting to comments Obama made on the Benghazi tragedy:
He referred to Benghazi as an incident, which I'm sure is an insult to the survivors and the family members of the four murdered Americans.

Which is why Fox is desperate to keep it going.

TRR: Is a General losing his job over Benghazi?

(Updated 10/29) Is an American General losing his job for trying to save the Americans besieged in Benghazi? This is the latest potential wrinkle in the growing scandal surrounding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that left four men dead and President Obama scrambling for a coherent explanation.

On October 18, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta appeared unexpectedly at an otherwise unrelated briefing on “Efforts to Enhance the Financial Health of the Force.” <<--<<<

News organizations and CSPAN were told beforehand there was no news value to the event and gave it scant coverage. In his brief remarks Mr. Panetta said,“Today I am very pleased to announce that President Obama will nominate General David Rodriguez to succeed General Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command.”

http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/robbins-r...

WASHINGTON – Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette, who was replaced as commanding officer of the USS Stennis strike group in October while investigators looked into complaints about his leadership and judgment, has received a nonpunitive letter of caution that will likely end his career.

Because the review of the case has not been complete, a Navy spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said he could not comment on any details.

Gaouette served as deputy commander of U.S. Naval Forces at Central Command before assuming command of Carrier Strike Group Three in April 2012. In 2003, he was awarded the Vice Admiral Jamese Bond Stockdale Award for inspirational leadership, according to his official biography.

Gaouette was one of at least 25 Navy commanders removed or replaced in 2012.
