let''s see, is parole said e cannot use te internet unsupervised,(tis is public record) and e put up tis video on thhe internet unsupervised. hmmmm...

What part of this is too difficult for you to understand?

i take it you could not understand the article i posted?(you ask for proof, and ten you ignore it...classic!) It clearly gave the judge's reasons for arresting him on MANY parole violations. Why are you defending a known felon? Is your partisanship so strong you will back criminals if it suits you?

sad...very sad.

<quoted text>so...now that I have time.
here's what happened with the military response.
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- The Pentagon defended its decision not to deploy forces to Benghazi, Libya, as soon as the U.S. mission came under attack on September 11th, saying it would have been irresponsible to put forces in harm's way without better information.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told Pentagon reporters that U.S. forces were on a heightened state of alert already because of the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington by al Qaeda.
But he said there simply wasn't enough information to responsibly deploy forces to Libya at the time of the attack.
"You don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on, without having some real-time information about what's taking place," Panetta said.
Lacking that information, Panetta said he, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, and General Carter Ham, head of the U.S. military's Africa Command, felt they couldn't "put forces at risk in that situation."
"This happened within a few hours and it was really over before, you know, we had the opportunity to really know what was happening," Panetta said.
Verifiable facts from Rueters and te pentagon. this is what they said happened from day one and everyone involved agrees that that is the truth.
What you posted are the lies told by Panetta and the others. Reuters reported what they were told by the Administration but that doesn't make it true. These lies have been contradicted with facts--strong irrefutable evidence, but you prefer to hold on to the lies told by Panetta, who lied at the instruction of Obama, who also lied, and the rest of them played along. If you want to be kept in the dark about Benghazi, that's your choice; but I prefer to have the truth.

Earlier this week, John McCain argued that Susan Rice is “not qualified” to be the next secretary, since she said the Benghazi attack began spontaneously.

“She’s not qualified. Anyone who goes on national television and in defiance of the facts, five days later — We’re all responsible for what we say and what we do. I’m responsible to my voters. She’s responsible to the Senate of the United States. We have our responsibility for advice and consent.”(CBS “This Morning”)

“I will do everything in my power to block her from being the United States Secretary of State. She has proven that she either doesn’t understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face.”(Fox and Friends)

In 2005, Mr. McCain argued that Condoleezza Rice was qualified to be the next secretary of state, even though she testified that there were WMDs in Iraq.

“So I wonder why we are starting this new Congress with a protracted debate about a foregone conclusion.... I can only conclude we are doing this for no other reason than lingering bitterness at the outcome of the elections.... We all have varying policy views, but the President, in my view, has a clear right to put in place the team he believed would serve him best.”(The Senate floor)

Dude, I gave debating a few of these insane ass clowns. What's the point? "Ya can't fix stupid".

You can show anyone of these nuts facts to repudiate their lies and they just don't care. Why even try?

Now when one of the right wing nuts show up I just mock and ridicule them. That's more enjoyable to me.

Typical of a petty person like you to put the blame for yur own faults on others. You don't debate--you just act like an "insane ass clown" and imagine you have something to say. All the rest of us know that all you and Smokin'Joe post are trash talk. The posting of lies is all on your side.

You said it right that you just mock and ridicule. You do that because you can't do any better.

Can you prove what you just said? Of course, you can’t because none of it is true, just hot air from an agitator who has little to say.

I provided you plenty of evidence, as have others, but doing so was a waste of effort since you’re just too biased to accept it because you can’t bear to hear anything bad about your incompetent Obama. If you are on here to play games, I suggest you find another player. I am not interested in conversing with a contentious person who refuses to accept the truth when it’s proven.

Apperently Bill Bennett a Republican through and through has an opinion and his blind republican followers take it as gospel. McCain is still bitter about his loss to Obama and is on TV every Sunday morning to critisize one thing or another for the last four years-and he likes the attention so we will need to hear his stuff for the next four. His answer to everything is war. The posters here are still bitter that the better man won the election so they will drag out the Bengazi tragedy for their own disgusting talking points for the next four years. They think Romney and their ilk (Palin) have a devine right to the White House.

Actually, you gave zero evidence. you gave your opinion without any facts to back it up. i did give verifiable facts on the issue.

you can lead a man to water, but i can't make you not stupid...

You need to learn to separate politics from facts. Bennett wrote a fact based article about Benghazi, based on only on facts, not politics. His political beliefs have nothing to do with what he stated in that article. You mislabel any criticism of Obama’s mishandling of Benghazi as political when you know it is not. Regardless of who is commenting on Obama’s betrayal of those Americans killed in Benghazi , you—like all of Obama’s supporters—will label them Republicans and use that as an excuse to uphold the continual lies from the Obama administration. You refuse to call it what it is: criminal behavior by the President and his underlings. They watched in real time the events taking place and took no action, then followed up that inaction with lie after lie. To make it more shameful, Obama and Clinton insulted the families of the dead Americans by being there when the bodies were returned and repeating their lies about what really happened, even then placing the blame on an innocent filmmaker. Obama needs to be held accountable for his actions, which are a disgrace to the office of the Presidency. He saw to it that an innocent bystander film maker paid for Obama’s sins and didn’t care that he went to prison for Obama’s crime; so now he needs to act like the man he has never acted like and tell the truth that is so foreign to him.
McCain’s loss has nothing to do with his statements about Benghazi. He has the right to his opinion of the despicable behavior of Obama and his staff. Furthermore,
no poster on here is stating his feelings about Benghazi because he is supposedly bitter. What nonsense! You know that is not true and are saying so either from a lack of reasoning or just plain arrogance. FYI, we are not bitter, just disappointed that American voters were so ignorant as to reelect a man who is tearing down all that America has represented. As a result of voter stupidity, he is still able to continue his agenda of changing us into a communist country.

Verifiable facts, my foot! All the supposed facts you posted were nothing but the lies put out by the Obama administration, who have lied from day one about the Benghazi tragedy, whereas I backed up all my statements with proof which you—like all empty-headed Obama supporters—refuse to acknowledge. If you aren’t willing to be open-minded and honest about the evidence presented, why do you waste my time?

Now as for your insult about my intelligence, I have no doubt my IQ exceeds yours.

i actually gave links to well respected news sources. if you wanted to, you could go find some of your own, but they would just corraborate what I posted.

i am, in fact, not an obama supporter at all. not a democrat either. seems it is you that is biased and it is clearly preventing you from looking at the facts objectively.
