So why did they keep telling the lie about a video for weeks after the attack?
What's your evidence that it's a lie moron? There were numerous demonstrations, many of them violent throughout the Muslim world directly connected to the video. Why is it beyond the realm of possibility that the attack in Benghazi was also connected? The perpetrators of the Benghazi attack Ansar al Sharia has a history of violent attacks over perceived insults to the Prophet. There's more evidence that suggests that the video was at the very least used as a pretext.
You're an idiot!

Bonuses in private business are generally a partial compensation for large numbers of extra hours worked without pay, something that doesn't exist in government.
Effective bonuses are tied to better performance of self & company - not necessarily longer hours,

So being attacked and retaliation for it doesn't factor in at all?
what did Saddam have to do with 9/11?

nothing.

and take into account that the plans to attack Iraq were being drawn up from the first day Bush was in office, 9/11 was the excuse the shadow Presidents had been waiting for.

so like i've said before...9/11 truthers do have a case to make.

Your love for the Koch suckers is on equal par with your ignorance on other subjects.Exceeded only by your obvious extreme jealousy and envy towards others. No matter if it be their house, their cars, the town they live, their service to our nation which it's way beyond obvious that you avoided like so many baggers. But yet you pretend that you have such great love and loyalty and respect for our military. You are basically a phony fk with no redeeming qualities. Even now your childish ways pretending to be another poster while spewing your hatred and ignorance. I can only suspect that your hostility towards those that are vastly superior in every way is fueled by your own under achieving life as a truck driver. You like so many of these baggers on here are a by-product of your own hatred and ingrained bigotry. You are to be pitied and looked down upon.

As a matter of scientific fact, there have been at least five major ice ages in the Earth's past.
Outside these ages, the Earth was ice-free even in high latitudes.
Wonder if prehistoric liberals screamed about CO2 emissions, global warming and Cap and Trade every time the ice melted and the Earth was ice-free.
Another "inconvenient truth" is global warming is not a new phenomenon. The Earth has undergone a great many cooling and warming periods in its history.
Present-day liberals like to think they discovered climate change. And if they can't control it, they want to put a tax it.
You keep trying that argument but it doesn't work Carol. In the past changes occurred over long periods of time due to factors like continental drift that changed the patterns of ocean currents. To be sure, there were some sudden changes but they were caused by catastrophic events like asteroid hits or volcanic mega eruptions. The changes we're seeing now are too fast to be naturally occurring and are due to increased carbon dioxide being pumped into the atmosphere from our use of fossil fuels.

To be fair, Democrats resisted reining in F&F and curbing the subprime mortgage crisis and a Democratic-controlled Congress controlled the purse strings the last two years of Bush's presidency. So there's enough blame to go around. Blaming Bush solely seems a bit unfair.
Pushing that bull crap again Carol? When the housing market was ballooning out of control it was the Republicans who controlled both houses of Congress and the White House. They could have legislated anything they wanted and Bush would have signed it. The problem wasn't Fannie and Freddie nitwit; it was unregulated mortgage brokers who made those toxic loans and unloaded them as equally unregulated mortgage backed securities backed up by credit default swaps. There's also the issue of ratings organizations like Standard and Poor's and Moody's that rated these securities as AAA. Why did they do that? Because they were paid to. It was Republicans who refused to oversee any of these financial markets.

What about the first attack on the Twin Towers under Clinton's watch and the five years of killing Americans overseas in terrorist attacks that virtually were not retaliated and emboldening the enemy to plot 9/11 under Clinton's watch?
You don't think Clinton was receiving threats all those years up until he left office? Why didn't he prevent 9/11 if Bush was receiving the same threats?
Selective memory can make people look foolish.
What about the first attacks on the WTC Carol? Did Clinton receive a PDB warning him of an imminent attack like Bush did? No. Clinton responded by attacking the perpetrators Al Qaeda instead of invading countries that had nothing to do with the attacks. The outgoing Clinton administration warned Bush of the danger that Al Qaeda posed and were ignored until we were attacked on 9/11/01.
It was Reagan's abrupt retreat from Lebanon that emboldened terrorists into believing that they could attack this country and its interests without consequence.

“Rosalie Bertell, president of the International Institute of Concern for Public Health, says HAARP operates as ‘a gigantic heater that can cause major disruptions in the ionosphere, creating not just holes, but long incisions in the protective layer that keeps deadly radiation from bombarding the planet’.

Physicist Dr Bernard Eastlund called it ‘the largest ionospheric heater ever built’. HAARP is presented by the US Air Force as a research programme, but military documents confirm its main objective is to ‘induce ionospheric modifications’ with a view to altering weather patterns and disrupting communications and radar.

According to a report by the Russian State Duma:‘The US plans to carry out large-scale experiments under the HAARP programme [and] create weapons capable of breaking radio communication lines and equipment installed on spaceships and rockets, provoke serious accidents in electricity networks and in oil and gas pipelines, and have a negative impact on the mental health of entire regions.’

Weather manipulation is the pre-emptive weapon par excellence. It can be directed against enemy countries or ‘friendly nations’ without their knowledge, used to destabilise economies, ecosystems and agriculture. It can also trigger havoc in financial and commodity markets. The disruption in agriculture creates a greater dependency on food aid and imported grain staples from the US and other Western countries.”(Michel Chossudovsky, Weather Warfare: Beware the US military’s experiments with climatic warfare, The Ecologist, December 2007)

In Losing bin Laden you’ll learn:

The never-before-told story of the Saudi government’s attempt to assassinate
bin Laden.
Why Clinton refused to meet with his first CIA Director.
Drawn from secret Sudanese intelligence files, the never-before-told story of bin Laden’s role in shooting down America’s Black Hawk helicopters in Mogadishu, Somalia—and how Clinton manipulated the news media to keep the worst off America’s TV screens.
How Clinton ignored intelligence and offers of cooperation against bin Laden from several Muslim countries.
The 1993 World Trade Center attack—why Clinton refused to believe it had been bombed; why the CIA was kept out of the investigation; and how one of the FBI’s most trusted informants was actually a double agent working for bin Laden.
Why the CIA never funded bin Laden—despite the media myths.
The untold story of a respected congressman who repeatedly warned Clinton
officials about bin Laden in 1993—and why he was ignored.
Revealed for the first time: how Clinton and a Democratic senator stopped the CIA from hiring Arabic translators—while phone intercepts from bin Laden remained untranslated.
How the Predator spy plane—which spotted bin Laden three times—was grounded by bureaucratic infighting.
The inside story of how Clinton defeated bin Laden’s plots to murder thousands more during the Millennium celebrations.
Plus much more, including appendices of secret documents and photos, as well as the established links between bin Laden and Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.

Really DUHPont..stop with blaming the dumped bowl of sour milk all on duh cat, when duh dog was the one slurping it first.
