New York Times report suggests that neither Al-Qaeda nor any other international terrorist groups were behind the 2012 attack on the U.S.

gee how archaic of me; i thought that murder was a crime no matter who did it or what the motivation.

seems Hil'ry was right; who cares, it's over, let's move on to more important things like making me the next president.

It doesn't matter what the name of the terrorist group is, whether or not it was al-Qaeda, or some other group just isn't the point.
What does matter, is that our State Department left the compound in Benghazi unprotected.

"Issa and Chaffetz say they’ve “been told repeatedly” that the Obama administration not only “repeatedly reject(ed) requests for increased security despite escalating violence, but it also systematically decreased existing security to dangerous and ineffective levels,” and did so “to effectuate a policy of ‘normalization’ in Libya after the conclusion of its civil war.”
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/10/...

The State Department refused several request's from ambassador Stevens for additional security.
Clinton needs to answer a lot of questions s to why.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/benghazi-timeline...

"Early August: State Dept. removes the last of three 6-man State Dept. security teams and a 16-man military SST team from Libya."

Why would the State Dept. remove security teams after Ambassador Stevens had been requesting more security?

If in fact Hillary does decide t run for president in 2016, you can bet she will have lot of questions to answer about this.
Her "what does it matter" replies are not going to be sufficient.

And yet you supported Granholm, who terrorized this state for nearly a decade with her catastrophic Marxist policies and her utter incompetence.

Don't dignify the poster Jim. It's just another troll who actually knows nothing but is pretending.

It's just the beginning of the elect Hillary propaganda.

I am starting to think China or Russia government run media is more honest than the USA.

Sadly, this kind of reporting was bound to happen when the republicans failed to convince those brave NAVY SEALS to come out of hiding to testify in their special hearings.

Who would have thought that these brave men were so fearful that the republicans couldn't protect them, that the only one that would tell his story had to do so on 60 Minutes...... And he wasn't even there!

We can only hope that these same inept republicans can take overwhelming control of both houses of congress in the 2014 midterm elections. Only then could they hold the hearings that will insure that Hillary will never run for president against Ted Cruz.......

In the meantime, let's hope that the people who led this attack are not captured. Imagine the horror if they were tried in a court where everyone knows that their testimony could run contrary to the republican's already stated facts!

Your party of cowards hasn't abandoned this group for one night the way the president supposedly did, but have refused to rescue them for over a year.

Are you sunshine patriots going to tell us that you don't want to risk bringing these brave NAVY SEALS forward to testify..... because you are too weak to protect them?

If the Republicans weren't a bunch of useless cowards, they would have marched these men out into the public and did whatever it took to protect them and their families. How any rational person could trust them with everyday life is beyond me!
