<quoted text>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.
If your IQ is so high how come you think "elemental" is four letters in the middle of the alphabet.

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.
The links you posted I did read. They are still what was put out by the administration and not to be believed. I have researched thoroughly and stand by what I posted and contend is the truth. In addition, the testimony from Petraeus has verified what I said. His testimony proves Obama lied and has deceived the public.
Nice to know you are neither a Democrat nor an Obama supporter. I am neither Democrat nor Republican and therefore can be objective regarding both parties, as you should be; so I’m puzzled as to why you have been supporting Obama’s version of the Benghazi incident, a version that is clearly an intentional distortion of the truth.
Contrary to your accusation, I am never biased but am always open-minded. I never accept anything without determining by research that it is true. I rarely believe anything coming from just one source.

No, they were put out by news sources that researched the facts independently.

I'm not supporting anyone's version. iam supporting what the verifiable facts lay out.

i noticed you have to put any of those up yourself to back up your clearly partisan claims...

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.
I have no difficulty understanding anything but you obviously can’t say the same, for you have great difficulty comprehending the fact Obama used him for a scapegoat to protect himself.

What has this man to do with Obama’s crime? Whether or not this man was guilty of parole violations does not change the fact the President of the United States watched Americans being murdered and didn’t lift a finger to help. What kind of man would do that?

As all are aware, the man was arrested because Obama and Clinton accused him of causing the attack in Benghazi and made him out to be the villain, which caused him to be arrested. In his trial, it was not proven he violated his parole regarding internet use. His arrest for supposed parole violations had absolutely nothing to do with the fact Obama let those Americans be murdered when he could have helped them. The filmmaker was intimated into pleading guilty by the Feds but his pleading guilty does not mean he was guilty of that particular parole violation.
Don’t accuse me of backing criminals if it suits me, scumbag. You have a habit of name-calling and falsely accusing, in addition to making incorrect assumptions. I could accuse you of backing up criminals since you see fit to vehemently support Obama and his buddies in their inappropriate inaction in the Benghazi affair.

I would like to add that IQ doesn't mean all that much, and there are plenty of things that are way more important, like character, inspiration, or diligence.

AS I stated, I am not partisan. As I also stated, I did provide documented facts, so what's your problem? Do you not comprehend the English language?

If it doesn’t mean all that much, why do you continue to mention it? By your own words, I should say you have convicted yourself, for you have no character and certainly the wrong kind of inspiration. However, you do have diligence, for you have proven yourself persistent in harassing a woman. Brilliant and humble? I don’t think so.

<quoted text>You’re the poorly informed one. You must get your info from Obama. Take off your Obama blinders and see the truth. You’d believe anything but the truth, apparently. Obama has lied repeatedly and done whatever he felt necessary to cover up his failure to do his job regarding this mess.
Prove he gave orders to assist them. Where is your evidence? He ordered no assistance and ignored the emails that came several times with pleas for help. He did watch the attack as it happened.
Following is an article by William Bennet: http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/01/opinion/bennett...
“We now know that President Obama met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden in the Oval Office at 5 p.m. ET on the night of the attack. We also know that the first e-mail announcing the attack came in at 4:05 after the attack started, and that there was a drone overhead monitoring the attack and diplomatic security official Charlene Lamb was monitoring the audio feed of the attack in real time in Washington.
That night, the Commander's In-extremis Force, a special rescue team of commandos, was moved from Europe to Sigonella, Italy, about a two-hour flight from Benghazi. Also that evening, a "FAST team" (Fleet Anti-terrorism Security Team) of Marines in Rota, Spain, was deployed to protect the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli.
The Pentagon was aware of the attack and put forces into motion. All information seems to indicate President Obama or the highest-ranking officials in the White House and Pentagon knew of the attack the same evening it occurred. Which begs the all-important question: Why was no additional military aid sent to secure our personnel, like the president claimed he directed?”
Untrue. The guards were not put there by the Libyan government. The Libyan guards were employees of a privately owned British Security company and they were underarmed. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/13/world/afric...
Interview of one of the Libyan guards:
http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2012/09/13/168415/...
The guard, who said he had been hired seven months ago by a British company to protect the compound, said the first explosion knocked him to the ground, and he was unable to fire his weapon. Four other contracted guards and three members of Libya’s 17th of February Brigade, a group formed during the first days of the anti-Gadhafi uprising and now considered part of Libya’s military, were protecting the outside perimeter of the compound.

“No help was ever denied. Ever.” Prove that statement. Help was denied and none was sent.
Obama did cause the arrest of the filmmaker and stated the film was to blame for the attack. It has not been proven the man violated his parole conditions. Get your facts straight.
I get my facts from more reliable sources than you. Furthermore, I, unlike you gullible followers of Obama, don’t swallow the lies Obama puts out. The man has a problem telling the truth.
It has not been proven that our president has lied about anything.

]I’m not talking about ordinary bullying or heated discussions but about the vulgar, abusive treatment of Logan by some. What they did to her was much more than just arguing with another poster. They tormented her by saying filthy things about her, by posting links to obscene pictures, etc., all that you must have seen. They followed her from thread to thread, leaving her no peace no matter where she went so that she has dropped from the scene. That is not right. They should be banned from Topix.
