The President's intel briefs will reveal what Obama/ Hillary knew, & when. This would clear up the issue quickly if they would comply--

"President Obama claims he was only repeating what the intelligence community told him when his administration asserted that the attack in Benghazi began with a spontaneous protest inspired by an Internet video. If that’s the case, there is a simple way to prove it: Give the new congressional select committee investigating Benghazi his daily intelligence briefings that show exactly what he was told.

There is precedent for doing so. In 2004, at the request of the 9/11 Commission, President George W. Bush declassified and publicly released the President’s Daily Brief (PDB) delivered to him before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. No sitting president had ever declassified a PDB while still in office. But Bush did it anyway, releasing the report titled “Bin Laden determined to attack inside the U.S.” It warned that the FBI had detected “patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings” but contained no actionable intelligence that could have stopped the 9/11 attacks from happening."

so the religious cult freaks like the jihadists aren't terrorists?

good to know.

i don't know about the colorado shooter, do you? you seem certain he isn't a terrorist and you say it is motive that determines that, so you must have known his motive...

or perhaps your mouth got a little ahead of your brain?

"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.
While the exact nature of the attack was not clear from the start, "what we did know early on was that this was a hostile action," retired Air Force brigadier general Robert Lovell said in his prepared statement Thursday morning to members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. "This was no demonstration gone terribly awry."
Lovell's testimony contradicts the story that the Obama administration gave in the early days following the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks on the U.S. Consulate that left four Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
Back then the administration insisted that the best intelligence it had from CIA and other officials indicated that the attack was a protest against an anti-Islam video that turned violent"

"One issue, for example, we haven’t been able to agree on is unemployment insurance. Republicans continue to refuse to extend it. And you know what, I am beginning to think they’ve got a point. If you want to get paid while not working, you should have to run for Congress just like everybody else. "

Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber is being hailed as a hero, but it's not for any official act of office. It's for saving a woman's life.

On his way to dinner on Monday, Kitzhaber spotted a woman lying by the side of the road with someone trying to help her, KGW-TV reported.

Kitzhaber, a former emergency room doctor, told his driver to pull over, ordered his security staff to call 911 and then performed CPR on the woman, who was not breathing.

It does not make them all Al Qaeda & we we arm some groups, it does not mean we are arming Al Qaeda.

They don't understand. Flack, DBwriter, Carol, etc, have a very simplistic view of things.

"What did you expect? "Welcome, sonny?" "Make yourself at home?" "Marry my daughter?" You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons."

Roxlo can't lie about Bundy anymore, so she's back to Benghazi.

She wouldn't be happy if she couldn't be here spreading lies and ignorance.

Hi Homer,
The President made a good joke about that at the White House Correspondents Dinner:

Lily, yeah a read a few excerpts, good stuff.
It's nice to have someone leading the country who is intelligent, witty, funny, etc. after the Bush debacle.

Hillary will carry on that tradition for 8 more years.

Please just answer the question, sans stooping to the jackboot lemming, moronic, kindergarten imbecilic level of just personal affrontation, because the actual answer for it does contain a very logical, valid and relevant point.
