Benghazi, as seen from the grassy knoll

Why do people claim that the Benghazi scandal is “phony”?

To answer that, let’s check in with the people fanning the controversy. They assembled Monday morning at the Heritage Foundation, convened by a conservative group to listen to Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) and several experts on the terrorist attack that killed four Americans in the Libyan city last year.

Some of those onstage posed questions about Benghazi that pointed to serious, if not scandalous, mistakes the government made before and during the attack. But those legitimate questions were undermined by other participants who rolled around the grassy knoll.

The lunacy began when Cliff Kincaid, a leader of Accuracy in Media, the group holding the gathering, suggested that the Obama administration is covering up events regarding Benghazi because the CIA operation there was secretly arming the enemy.“This administration has a policy of supporting al-Qaeda, the same people behind the deaths of nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11,” he declared.

One of the panelists, former CIA officer Clare Lopez, picked up the theme.“Have we flipped our policy,” she asked,“to where we are placing the power, the influence, the might, diplomatic assets, military assets, intelligence assets, financial assets, at the service of al-Qaeda in the Middle East to bring to power forces of Islamic jihad?.&#8201;.&#8201; . Are we involved in the Middle East to help the forces of Islam, of al-Qaeda, of the Muslim Brotherhood, of jihad and sharia?”

Wolf’s reply:“I think Clare makes a very good point.” And this is the man leading the effort to create a “select committee” to investigate Benghazi.

So the Obama administration, which dispatched Osama bin Laden and decimated al-Qaeda with drone strikes, is now in cahoots with the terrorist network? Sorry, Congressman. I’ve got an appointment back on Earth.

Also, RealDave, and this is right out of your source...
Ice extent is still well above last year’s level. Open water was observed in the ice cover close to the North Pole, while in the Antarctic, sea ice has been at a record high the past few days.
Sea ice extent for August 2013 averaged 6.09 million square kilometers. This was 1.13 million square kilometers below the 1981 to 2010 average for August, but well above the level recorded last year.
Relatively cool conditions over the central Arctic Ocean continued, a pattern that has characterized this summer.
The opening near the pole highlights the complex interplay between the ice, atmosphere, and ocean. Such openings in the ice occur two ways: through winds pushing the ice apart or through melting. Both processes likely played a role in forming the current opening.

I'd say it's safe to stop believing Al Gore and Obama who use even the climate for political gain.

If a candidate said something like that in this present crisis, I'd still vote for them. But I'd vote for just about any candidate who had some real solutions for a change.
But our party could possibly shoot itself in the foot if we lose our moral backbone considering there's a movement among black Christians to switch parties just because the Democrats no longer hold their same values. That could mean a lot of black votes over the course of the next two years.
Just sayin'.
Having a set of values and wanting the government to dictate decisions in your private life are two different things.

The demand for abortions is driven by poorly educated people who have sex like bunnies without regard to the consequences and nothing can change that.

medical care...
"Healthcare" is a political slogan.
People who come to the emergency room for minor illnesses (colds, etc.) should be turned away and told to take two aspirin and call their doctor in the morning.
Well ya see, this is how some people think....if you go to a doctor, and you have regular insurance, you have to pay your copay before you are treated. But if you go to the ER, even if it is for something minor that you should be going to your private doctor for, they have to treat you even if you don't pay your copay. I work in the ER, you wouldn't believe how many people tell us that this is exactly what they do.

Seemed to me you were using that source to argue global warming isn't a dead issue.

But your source agreed with mine.

Maybe you should go back and read both of them again?

"per capita" - look it up.
Something else you may consider. The local NOWCARE or PatientFirst is more capable of handling medicare care than most facilities over there. Thus it costs more. Within ten miles of this house is seven or eight hospitals and a lot of patient care facilities. How many do they have in the same area. The American people are over medicated but have the most technologically advanced medical system in the world. Per capita.

Galt I agree with most of your post but I’m curious… Who should speak for the Unborn?
Galt is opposed to abortion after the fetus is viable. Before then the question is purely religious and not medical. Just don't try to impose your religion on others.

So, how do we prevent these Democrats from committing mass murder?
Part of the security for the Navy Yard is the security clearance required.
How did this person get a security clearance? Obviously, he should not have.
But, if he didn't have a security clearance, he would have just killed a bunch of defenseless white people somewhere else.
Why are mass murderers attracted to the Democratic Party?
If we took all the guns away from Democrats, wouldn't that prevent all these mass murders?
The idiot O'bama and his liberal conspirators should start by admitting that while the government is looking at everything and everyone it is apparently seeing nothing. The surveillance state failed again. Possibly it could be, the liberals yelling 'racist' each time someone comments on a black guy. You know the saying "if you see something, say something?"--they need to add unless it is a black man you racist.

I work in a very large emergency room, you would be surprised what people come in for: bug bites, rashes, constipation, headaches, tooth pain, fussy baby, medication refills (mostly narcotics), stuffy nose, etc.....Many come by ambulance because they get a bed quicker that way. These are not rare occurrences, they happen every day.
