Look, in case you didn't know it....Benghazi is not a part of the United States. Vowing to "bring to justice those responsible for the deadly assault on a U.S. embassy in Benghazi" doesn't mean that these culprits will necessarily be brought to justice in the United States. Do you really think that is worth going to war?
"Federal law enforcement authorities have filed murder charges against Mr. Khattala, a militia leader in Benghazi, in connection with the attacks. The authorities have identified several others who they said they believe participated in the attacks, and have filed charges under seal against some of them, according to American officials." It is the Libyan government that has "rebuffed the Obama administration’s efforts to arrest the suspects".
Of course, Republicans have tried to use that as an excuse to authorize a military strike against Syria.
“You cannot have an attack on the mission, 12 months later identified a good number of the participants, and have absolutely no consequences for the taking of American lives,” Representative Mike Rogers of Michigan, who leads the House Intelligence Committee, said in an interview."
To hell with Republicans and your pro-war stance. You have absolutely NO respect for another country’s sovereignty but you would be the first to complain should those suspects be taken out by a drone.
“The Libyan government has to wrestle with this idea:‘What would that mean to us if we apprehended some of these people, if we tried them, if we handed them over?’” Gen. Carter F. Ham, a former head of the military’s Africa Command, told a conference in Aspen, Colo., in July.“It’s a very, very complex issue.”
Heck, I'm surprised that you people haven't demanded that the President invade Russia to capture Snowden. Same difference.

how about using drones on terrorists like "Khattala" instead of on American citizens???...

It's the culture..
I would suggest you goggle "Republicans’“Southern Strategy” under Nixon".

Nixon's political strategist Kevin Phillips said, "Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That's where the votes are. Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats. "

THAT is public record.

In 2005, Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman formally apologized to the NAACP for ignoring the black vote and exploiting racial conflicts.

Europe Declares the Welfare State Dead
With the Congress and the administration in full battle mode over implementing ObamaCare to convert the United States into a European welfare state, Dutch King Willem-Alexander gave a nationally televised speech to his nation's Parliament on September 16th declaring that the welfare state was dead. The message, written for the King by Prime Minister Mark Rutte's government, stated that current levels of state spending for unemployment benefits and subsidized health care are unsustainable amid Europe's ongoing economic malaise. With Moody's credit rating agency threatening to downgrade Dutch debt, the King announced that citizens soon will be expected to create their own social and financial safety nets with much less help from the state.

however, long-term unemployment insurance is welfare and should be subject to means testing...
if one cannot find a job in six months, one never will...
After Bush crushed the world's economy and ruined a generation, long term unemployment may be the only solution for years to come. At least until Hillary's second term.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz claims unemployment insurance grows the middle class.
Remember when Wasserman-Schultz was attacking Mitt Romney for having a foreign bank account and "secretive investments?"

Then we discovered:

"Disclosure forms reveal that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of Congress from Florida, previously held funds with investments in Swiss banks, foreign drug companies, and the state bank of India. This revelation comes mere days after the Democratic chair attacked presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for holding money in Swiss bank accounts in the past."

Once again we saw the usual “do as I say, not as I do” crap from the left which continues today with the ACA (among dozens of other things.)

2000 years.... in 30 seconds...

MWP .3 degree's warmer than 20 Century...

"Historical data provide a baseline for judging how anomalous recent temperature changes are and for assessing the degree to which organisms are likely to be adversely affected by current or future warming. Climate histories are commonly reconstructed from a variety of sources, including ice cores, tree rings, and sediment. Tree-ring data, being the most abundant for recent centuries, tend to dominate reconstructions. There are reasons to believe that tree ring data may not properly capture long-term climate changes. In this study, eighteen 2000-year-long series were obtained that were not based on tree ring data. Data in each series were smoothed with a 30-year running mean. All data were then converted to anomalies by subtracting the mean of each series from that series. The overall mean series was then computed by simple averaging. The mean time series shows quite coherent structure. The mean series shows the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) and Little Ice Age (LIA) quite clearly, with the MWP being approximately 0.3°C warmer than 20th century values at these eighteen sites."

BTW Homer__on this day in 1958 the first ant farms went on sale. My friends and I waited patiently as the manager at Harry's Hardware and Auto opened the large box containing the display model and placed it at adult eye level on the shelf where us kids would have to stand on tip toes to see it. It was next to the blasting caps and just above the 8oz.bottles of Chloroform. Back then, hardware stores sold just about everything a kid might want or need.

Thing about ant farms is that once you've actually seen one__there was no reason to buy one.
