LMAO yes a few CIA contractors went over there to join special agent Strickland and a couple of others in evacuating the state department personnel some of whom were wounded and the body of Sean Smith to the nearby CIA base. The ambassador's body was collected later from a nearby hospital where he had be taken by Blue Mountain people.

Keep in mind that Glen Doherty was in far away Tripoli when the consulate was attacked and quickly traveled to Benghazi with others on a Libyan plane so in that regard there was an armed response__or a case of reinforcements being sent. Unfortunately that group was delayed at Benghazi's airport while waiting for ground transportation and only arrived at the CIA base just before it was mortared.

I'm afraid Benghazi is a sad reflection on today's world. There is little that we or anyone can do to prevent terrorist completely. To even think or imply that a president or any leader in any capacity would ignore or not care what happens to their own personnel is far more a reflection on the ones making that charge and one would have to question their motives...In this particular case it is way beyond obvious that the Republicans are playing politics with the dead and their only agenda is just that. Look how it's working on the loose nuts on here.They hear something and it immediately it becomes gospel. Especially if it's on Fox.
Aren't you the same idiot that has said Bush took us to war by false pretense, hypocrite? If you didn't say it, many, many of your fellow Moonbats have for sure.

Regarding Benghazi, why did Obama & Hillary send out Susan Rice for two weeks saying it was "a video"? Why did the 2nd debate moderator Candy Crowley lie to defend Obama during the debate? Everyone knows what a serial liar Obama is. Are you so naïve you don't think Obama was more worried about his image & campaign (Mission accomplished, Al Qaeda is decimated) than four patriots?

All you can do is attack a news organization that doesn't participate in your charade on the left. Now go make some comments about Bushie Boy, juvenile.

Young Turks host Cenk Uygur angrily denounced Republicans and Fox News on Friday for continuing to paint the September 2012 attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya as a conspiracy.

“Why don’t we talk for eight years about the gross incompetence of the f*cking Republicans George g*ddamn W. Bush and Dick Cheney? They sit in f*cking Crawford for a month as they’re about to attack us,” Uygur said.“You got a memo that said,‘[Osama] bin Ladin determined to attack inside the United States of America,’ you didn’t do anything about that. Three-thousand Americans died and you want to talk about Benghazi and four Americans,‘Oh, and you changed it from ‘attacks’ to f*cking ‘demonstrations.’ F*ck you, move the f*ck on.”

While acknowledging that the four deaths in the attack were tragic, Uygur criticized conservatives for ignoring Obama administration policies that have harmed and could harm a wider array of people, like the recent Federal Communications Commission proposals that activists have warned could endanger net neutrality, among others.

“They do warrantless spying on all of us, on 300 million Americans,” Uygur said.“They do drone strikes on people — they kill people —[and] they don’t even know who they are. They kill American citizens without due process. There’s a mountain of problems with the Obama administration.”

By comparison, Uygur said, Benghazi was “a tiny little f*cking thing” that the rest of the media had allowed Fox News to turn into a leading topic.

“Stop talking about what Fox News is talking about,” he said.“Have you f*cking not caught on? They do it on purpose.”

You are being a moron trying to claim "they" refers to everyone and your lame rewrite showed an error that any grammar teacher wouldn't make. Who would make the idiotic assumption that only one person had made up a opinion? You are tripping yourself up over a compound sentence!
I made two comments about your idiocy. It is time you move on. I am done with your idiocy.
Here you go, Idiot (Kvetch or carol?): ""Everyone" is singular because the word indicates 'each' of the individuals in a group. Like "Everyone in my class likes me!" That's why "everyone" is singular (pun intended!).
But the word "They" does not indicate any individual person/thing in a group. It indicates ALL of them, so it is plural.

What do Republicans want to prove with Benghazi?

If the crime is that the Obama administration, two months before a presidential election, was concerned with putting the best face on the attack, Team Obama is probably guilty. But the emails do not suggest that the administration lied to the American public, let alone orchestrated a vast cover-up of some massive intelligence or policy failure.

So far, as Marc Ambinder suggested last year, this seems like a battle over "diction." Does it matter if the CIA didn't use the word "video" but Rhodes did, several hours later? Or that Rice called the attackers "extremist elements" rather than al Qaeda-affiliated "terrorists"? Should the White House have released the Rhodes email earlier, even though (as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney slyly noted) it didn't deal specifically with Benghazi?

The answer to that last question is probably yes. White House reporters aren't very impressed with the Obama administration's transparency, and the White House hasn't exactly done a great job getting its own story straight on Benghazi.

Maybe that's fed the Benghazi-gate inferno, but it still leaves this question for Republicans: In a best-case scenario, what will this endless investigation prove about the Obama administration? That it tried to stage-manage a Sunday talk show trifecta, or influence talking points from the intelligence community? That it's guilty of spin, or failing to use the word "terrorist" enough? That Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton weren't publicly angry enough about the murder of an ambassador they both liked and respected — and sent to Libya?

If Republicans want to hang the murder of Ambassador Stevens and the other three Americans around Obama's neck or use the Benghazi attack to sink a 2016 run by Hillary Clinton, they should at least come up with a narrative that makes an iota of sense to the large number of Americans who assumed that Benghazi-gate was settled, politically speaking, in the 2012 presidential race.

Or more coarsely, as former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor would have it, "Dude, this was like two years ago."

Ever hear of COBRA? I beginning to doubt that you EVER held a job.
Republicans can be criticized for not doing more to address health care reform. But it's not an easy undertaking. The Democrats rejected HillaryCare at one time which was similar to ObamaCare.

What we have now is a partisan tax law that gives too much power over our health care to the federal government, the IRS, politicians and bureaucrats with all the red tape.

If ever there was a time for both sides to sit down and compromise on a mutually doable health care reform, the time was in 2009. Both sides were prepared to come to the table with solutions that were long overdue and both sides could live with. The Democrats blew it.

It is when you're sworn to an oath and testifying. The general did indicate there probably wasn't much they could do, but added they should have at least tried.
Hind sight is 20/20. The attack on Benghazi only lasted about forty-five minutes before security agents from the CIA Annex along with 16 Libyan Security guards regained control. By the time Panetta & Dempsey met with Obama, all the surving Americans had retreated to the annex and were deemed safe. The rescue team from Tripoli arrived at the annex within 3 hours from the initial attack on the consulate and within forty-five minutes of the start of the second hour long assault on the annex. To say that "we should have at least tried" is a personal opinion that would have made absolutely no difference in the long run.
