Makes for fascinating reading. Do you really think he'll run?

I can fly from the USA to Europe in seven hours. It's disturbing that we couldn't find one of our many military forces in Europe to fly the two/three hours it takes to get to North Africa to support our folks. We have over 900 bases overseas, and this administration expects us to believe that none of them are within 7 hours of Benghazi? Are we to believe that we couldn't find a tanker in Europe or the Mideast to refuel any aircraft we might send in support of our people in Libya? Were there no aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean... we used to have two carrier groups in the Med when I was in the Navy?

Somebody blew this big time, and this administration is covering up their incompetence.(Question: Who is the only person who can authorize the use of military troops to fight in foreign lands without a declaration of war?)

Don't bother asking me for examples, because I don't pay the stories much attention, because I think it's that persons business, not mine.
Oops, I went crazy with my "e's"... athletes. Where's that darn editor!

It appears Victoria Nuland, H Clinton's former aide, and Ben Rhodes, the deputy Nat'l Security Advisor, http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/16/world/middl...
are the ones who'll eventually be taking the fall for Benghazi(IMO).

If I were them, I'd head for cover ASAP, because over the years, people like them have mysteriously turned up missing or dead.

In light of the new attacks in Libya, 3 fighter
squadrons (in Spain, Germany, and Italy) have been put on alert, and at least 1 has been repositioned to be closer to Libya.

Hmmmmmmmm, only 9 months too late!

Doesn't matter one bit What barry does, or doesn't do. He'll get a pass for everything because he's black. Nobody in media wants to be known as the one who caalled the black man STUPID.

I don't know. This may have jumped the shark for even some libs. Just heard that the irs admits that yep, they did target certain groups. They said they are sorry. Ha. I'm thinking that some on the left may have a bit of a problem with this one. Hope so. I mean they may not like the 9-12 project but perhaps next month someone they care about will be a target?

Another evasion. When you can't address the issue intelligently,
just divert. And you have the cajones to call ME childish?

BTW, that was no childish taunt. It was a direct INSULT. A taunt indicates that I care whether you respond or not!

Most of that which you've cited happens on BOTH sides. Politics 101.
Sure it does. But you go ahead and list the "conspiracy" theories that surfaced c.2001-08, and I'll list those just in the last five years. I'll bet you mine laps yours, twice. You go ahead and list the "hearings" and "investigations" in that same time frame, and I'll do likewise for the last 5 years, and I'll bet mine laps yours times 12.

It ain't even close.

<quoted text>But unfortunately, many of the 70-80% of thefolks rely on the internet for their daily news, and many others (especially young people) have NO clue about what transpired in Libya. They've shut themselves out, and not just about Libya. Pretty much ALL current events in general. I was the same way at that age. This time it works in the Dems (and Obama's) favor.
Really?'Cos, like, there's no news on the internet? oookaaay

bob - reality check. There's FAR more news, and diversity of news, on the internet then there was when we were "at that age". Just because Leno manages to find a few airheads to fill out a comedy skit, and edits out the others, it would be a little self-absorbed to imagine they represent the general run. Get out and meet some real "kids". My friend's kids, for instance - we have some lively discussions, and they are well versed in current events AND (you'd be surprised to learn) several tend to lean to a quasi-Reaganesque mindset, which is exactly what one would expect from the Bush generation.

<quoted text>Even if the news that Obama was personally responsible for the 4 deaths in Benghazi, and that news made national headlines in radio, print, TV, and interweb, plus somehow filtered down to youngsters from 18 to 24, Obama is so beloved by his adoring fans and supporters, he would NEVER suffer any ill effects. That's disturbing.

I believe H Clinton to be the one responsible for the tragedy in Libya. But she is also beloved, & protected, and eventually one of her high ranking State Dept aides will take the fall. That's disturbing.

When it was learned Hicks would be testifying on Capitol Hill, he was demoted, likely by H Clinton herself or at least signed off on it. That's disturbing.

My premise is demonstrated right here, with this one story. You've selected the bits that fit your speculated pre-conclusion, comfortably omitted any facts - facts stated right in your link - that don't fit your conclusion, and topped it off with speculation entirely dependent on previous speculation.

I get it. I do. When the world stubbornly refuses to conform to one's personal parameters, it's natural to craft a world that fits, taking from bits and pieces of reality, rejecting others, that eases one's discomfort. The next step is to flatter oneself that they see clearly what no one else wants to see, and that these others are all blind, or stupid, or uninformed, or all the above.

It could be that they're not so blind at all. It could be that they see that the world is a dangerous and complicated place, even more so when we involve ourselves in lawless regions beyond our borders. Perhaps they know instinctively that, for some godawful reason, it's in America's "interest" (some convoluted way) to be so involved in other people's ancient enmities. And once in awhile, our people get caught in a crossfire.

And a few act all surprised that such a thing could possibly happen, and the conspiracy-gin cranks up all over again. Many times, since 9/11/01 especially, I wonder if our safe and comfortable lives, relative to the the vast majority of global experience, hasn't resulted in one of the most nervous and disturbed populations in the history of the world.
