Obama & Hillary lied, people died:
WASHINGTON — U.S. military personnel knew early on that the Benghazi attack was a "hostile action" and not a protest gone awry, according to a retired general who served at U.S. Africa Command's headquarters in Germany during the attack.

Where were you hecklers when George W. Bush invaded the wrong country for the wrong reason and caused the deaths of 4500 young Americans and the wounding of 35,000? I might also point out that he and his administration told a documented 935 lies to make it happen.

As far as the four who were killed in Benghazi....they were drawing hazardous pay for every day they served. What makes them special over the other young soldiers just mentioned? Like Hillary said, "At This Point What Difference Does It Make??"

That was my first grievance after the surgery - that the surgeon didn't come out and talk to me directly. It was closing time on Friday so she probably had a party to go to or something.
The ER nurse is the only one who actually told us the right information. But we called the office the following Monday and the surgeon's staff told us our appointment wasn't until the following Tuesday as was written on the pre-op instructions by the pre-op consultant.
Contacting the surgeon directly isn't done for us peasants who don't have concierge care. You get an on-call doctor who claims to have contacted your surgeon and then gives them confusing information apparently.
Keeping a close eye on things. Not that serious yet to warrant an ER visit. I'll have no problem whatsoever demanding he be seen by the surgeon tomorrow. None whatsoever. I'm the picture in the dictionary under "squeaky wheel".
You should be able to see the surgeon after the operation.
Attitude often determines how you are treated.
Good Luck

That's some funny shit from someone who believes the tale coming from the WH regarding Benghazi.
When you have something of substance to add to the discussion instead of 45,000 ¨you're stupid¨ or ¨you're a parrot¨, get back to me. Until then I'll just keep laughing at you and your phony 'I know-it-all' BS.

If you're referring to the FBI agent's report about the flying lessons, I believe that got buried somewhere. Failing to connect the dots is what led to the creation of Homeland security. I don't believe that info ever reached the State Dept.
State Department??? LMAO

The lady FBI agent resigned over the ordeal__perhaps you should peruse the 9/11 Commission Report.

What if you're wrong and scientists all over the world are right?
Hard to tell if your post is arrogant or stunningly stupid.
The point is, I'm right. Show me one instance where these experts have made an accurate prediction using their settled, indisputable "science". Here's just three:

-May 15, 1989, Associated Press:“Using computer models, researchers concluded that global warming would raise average annual temperatures nationwide [USA] two degrees by 2010.”

-1988 Rob Reiss asked official Climate Scientist Dr. James Hansen how the greenhouse effect was likely to affect the neighborhood below Hansen’s office in NYC in the next 20 years, whereupon Climate scientist James Hansen issues this prediction, to be fullfilled in 20 years, which is to say, doom by 2008:“The West Side Highway [which runs along the Hudson River] will be under water. And there will be tape across the windows across the street because of high winds. And the same birds won’t be there. The trees in the median strip will change….There will be more police cars….[since] you know what happens to crime when the heat goes up.”

-Michael Oppenheimer, 1990, The Environmental Defense Fund:“By 1995, the greenhouse effect would be desolating the heartlands of North America and Eurasia with horrific drought, causing crop failures and food riots…”(By 1996) The Platte River of Nebraska would be dry, while a continent-wide black blizzard of prairie topsoil will stop traffic on interstates, strip paint from houses and shut down computers…The Mexican police will round up illegal American migrants surging into Mexico seeking work as field hands.”

Well__it sure fkd up the life of Ronnie Smith a teacher from Texas who was working in Benghazi at a school throughout the entire episode__with his wife and then a newborn.

Ronnie was murdered while on his morning run__just a short distance from the American Consulate.

Maybe Issa could subpoena Ronnie's wife eh?

In the real world

One of the most popular songs of all time, Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone," is going to auction this summer.

Sotheby's is offering a working draft of the finished song in Dylan's own hand for an estimated $1 million to $2 million.

The song is about a debutante who becomes a loner when she's cast from upper-class social circles.

The draft is written in pencil on four sheets of hotel letterhead stationery with revisions, additions, notes and doodles: a hat, a bird, an animal with antlers. The stationery comes from the Roger Smith hotel in Washington, D.C.

"How does it feel To be on your own" it says in his handwriting. "No direction home Like a complete unknown Like a rolling stone."

Not that give a hoot about Bush, but FDR was warned of a Japanese attack. No one knew where, when, or how.
That's not borne out by history. They knew exactly where the Japanese Fleet was. They didn't share the information, proven in Congressional Testimony afterwards. Commanders at Pearl were not warned there was an enormous Japanese task force approaching.

If you think it's a coincidence that there were no Aircraft Carriers at Pearl Harbor when it was attacked, I've got a bridge to sell you.

It was no sneak attack. It was a sacrifial lamb to get us into the war. We do it all the time.

"Remember the Maine"

'Remember the Lusitania"

"Remember Pearl Harbor"

"Remember 9-11"
