Ironic, that Iran wants the type of journalists that the USA has, journalists that act as propaganda machines for the ruling elite, allowing them behavior that is ethically wrong and sometimes criminal, without even a question,

yet the journalists in Iran risk getting arrested by telling the truth, and still do, while our journalists like those at Candy Crowley's CNN, and Raddatz ABC do anything to protect the elite.

Frankly this is on us, if we really cared about the truth, we would stop buying products of CNN, and the other corrupt media's advertisers, until individuals like Crowley and Raddatz are fired.

Ironic that King Bloomberg has his armed security detail, but wants to disarm the rest of us, typical politician,
just as classic as him overturning a term limit rule voted in by the voters, using legislative shenanigans so that he could be reelected.

Apparently according to Panetta, Obama was absent the night of 9/11 when 4 Americans were killed.

I must be out of the mainstream, but I actually think that the president should be available on that date taking into account its historic significance,

but then I also think the president should enforce all the laws of this country and follow the constitution as well,

Obviously I am way out of the mainstream.

Apparently the news that Obama was not even available to vote present on the anniversary of 9/11, despite the significance of the date and the higher likelihood of an attack on that date is not even news to the mainstream media.

Read it again. The comments were about Obama's actions (or lack thereof) on the anniversary of 9/11, not 9/11/01.

The point is he's a narcissistic incompetent amateur.

Great campaigner, an abject failure as a leader, governor, and administrator.

The point is that his Administration did NOTHING while terrorists murdered four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya. The President didn't issue any orders, and was not only indecisive, but uninvolved. Military assets were only a couple of hours away by air, yet the victims fought hopelessly for many hours while awaiting assistance that not only never came in time, but which wasn't even dispatched. An F-16 making a low speed pass over the area could have helped by scaring off the terrorists, but even that mwasn't done. I also blame Mrs. Clinton, who ignored warnings of danger in Libya, especially on the anniversary of 9/11. Other than travelling all over the world on the taxpayer's dime, what did she accomplish as Secretary of State?

Don't be silly. This whole line of poorboy whining about insufficient budgets and "there was nothing we could have done" rationalization is complete balderdash.

A competent POTUS and SecState would not have put US personnel into Benghazi without security adequate to the known threats in the first place.

This administration's incapacity to honestly and objectively own up to their clear and abject failure just compounds their failure - it means we can expect more of the same from them in the future.

You're showing your ignorance again. The U.S. had military air assets in Italy, just across the Mediterranean from Libya, that easily could have been there in a couple of hours. We also have a 6th Fleet stationed in the Mediterranean as well. Of course, that response wouldn't have been necessary in the first place if the Administration had heeded the numerous warnings of danger, and provided adequate protection to them in the first place. If this happened under Bush, you would have been all over him. But your hero BHO is perfect and can do no wrong!

Indeed. But that would have left Team Obama having to do political damage control, explaining why they had intervened in a civil war in Libya with US combat troops on the ground, without Congressional authority.

This was far, far beyond anything this bunch of progressive leftist amateurs playing at governing have the stones or experience for. So they decided it was safer for them if 4 brave Americans were left to die - for the greater good. The greater good being, of course, the Lord God Obama's campaign and re-election.

They reckoned they could just lie their way out of it yet again. It's what they're best at - after all, they're smarter than everyone else. Just ask them - they'll tell you.

So out came the ridiculous "offensive video" meme - and come November, the American voter did exactly what they'd calculated they would.

No problem.
