This isn't the nation I was born in anymore. I've lost any hope for it at this point. Half the people here just don't care, don't give a damn. They think the freedom we have is a given. Its not. What a sad thing to witness.

Washington Times columnist Joseph Curl on Monday said the Obama administration’s developing scandal involving the monitoring of Fox News reporter James Rosen’s email accounts goes “much deeper.”

Citing a “CIA source,” Curl claimed via his official Twitter account that the Fox News scandal was the “4th Shoe” and the White House is sitting on “something” that has top White House aides “terrified.”

The consulate in Benghazi was just a place from which Amb Stevens
would be better able to carry on in his outreach endeavors with the general Libyan populace. And he was evidently making huge inroads to that purpose when he was murdered by terrorist cowards. Many Libyans turned out to mourn the loss of Stevens.

Apparently he felt confident enough to leave the relative safety of his Embassy in Tripoli, but I believe at least one of his advisors should have (if they didn't) mentioned the possibility of a 9/11 anniversary attack, and to be wary of that possibility, especially with what was happening in Cairo. I guess they could have figured an attack would be more likely in Tripoli, as to why they went to Benghazi,we may never know.

What the House is doing now with Benghazi is nothing more and nothing less than what a Democratic-controlled House would have done eight years ago (when it became impossible to deny the occupation had gone to hell in a hand-made neocon hand basket) to President Bush over Iraq.

An inquiry run by the Democrats eight years ago would have accomplished nothing, because it would have been motivated as much or more to 'bringing the President down' as to figuring out what went wrong in Iraq.
Keep thinking that, Willie: " nothing more and nothing less than what a Democratic-controlled House would have done eight years ago"

I COULD say something about bobble-head dolls here, but that would be rude.

What do you mean I have no solutions to anything? I've been giving solutions, you're simply too obtuse to understand the solution. Just for you, let me make it perfectly clear... KICK THE DEMOCRATS OUT OF OFFICE. If we get rid of obama and the Democrats, our economy will improve quickly and dramatically... no more "obama recovery", that ain't!

Maybe this forum is much too advanced for the simple liberal mind.

Stevens seems to have been a good man, one who genuinely cared about Libya AND America. The more I hear of him, the more I realize the loss we have suffered.

If I had been Stevens, when the extra security I requested was not only denied, but current security REDUCED, I would have resigned effectively immediately and flown home. But hindsight is 20/20. It's too late for him, but I'm betting no other ambassador who finds a request for extra security denied will stay on the job 24 hours past receiving the denial.

I wasn't aware that we have an American Consulate in Benghazi. I thought al-qaida ran this administraton out of Benghazi several months ago.

You sound almost as pathetic as that poor slob that the administration sent out on the Sunday morning talk shows to try to defend last week's disasters. Why does this administration insist on sending out people that weren't in the loop, and don't know what went on? They only regurgitate the administration's talking points, but other than that, they know nothing except what they've been told to say. First Susan Rice, then Jay Carney, and now Dan Pfeiffer... administration puppets all.

If al-qaida ever decides to return the documents that they took when they ran us out of Benghazi, we may find out the answer. I'm not holding my breath.

I'm glad al-qaida allowed us to have the bodies of our dead to take home.

That one's easy. They're dispensable. They're a dime a dozen and they can be replaced. Susan Rice doesn't have the value Hillary Clinton has which is precisely why Hillary Clinton didn't do the Sunday morning talk show circuit regarding Benghazi. Too risky for the heir to the throne to stick her neck out like that.

Different topic but along the same creepy lines.
Do you know who outed the IRS story?
The IRS.
Do you know why I think they may have sprung their own scandal?
To perpetuate fear particularly among republicans all geared toward the 2014 elections.
Here's the scenario. The average American has a healthy fear of the IRS anyway. Everyone dreads the men in black suits ringing their doorbell and announcing an audit. No one messes with the IRS without losing sleep, most Americans take pains to do their taxes carefully because they ARE the political boogymen and they do strike a note of nervousness in most taxpayers. The taxman cometh and all that.

Now we have a situation where republican organizations, religious organizations, Tea Party organizations, conservative groups AND individuals have been targeted HARD. How do you think that will play to the public when it comes to writing a check or making a donation to the republican party when the 2014 campaigning begins? I'll tell you. It's going to make alot of people not write a check. It's going to make alot of people shake their heads "no" the next time their conservative candidate asks for a contribution. They have their families to consider, their jobs, a mortgage etc. and people who normally participate by send $$$'s will think twice because they don't want to wind up red flagged by the already scary and now even scarier ---> IRS.
How does that help liberals if contributions by republicans are way down? lol- It's a no-brainer.

It's called soft tyranny and it might be playing at a theater near you.

Happy Dreams, America!

I told you several weeks ago I'm not interested in talking about Benghazi. I'm pretty sure I told you why, but in case I didn't - it's for the same reason I don't talk about 9/11 with truthers.
If you can't see, based on what you've posted above, why the truther comparison is valid, it's by choice.
Good then I'll say it again. You're an idiot. You know nothing of the possibilities that were present to save those that died at Benghazi. I do. I have a very knowledgeable informant. I will see how you react when and if the truth comes out. This is no 9/11 truther stuff. I've frankly lost any respect for your opinion. Oh yes I know you never had any for mine and you know what, I could not care less. When you are so steeped in defending the indefensible you're just not worth it. Your ego is over-bearing.

He was a good man and he was doing his job working to normalize relationships with the US. But Obama backhanded him not just by letting him be killed but by embarrassing the Libyan president by saying no he's wrong it was a demonstration and then blaming the Libyan people, who happened to respect the ambassador. Believe me this is so much worse than it seems.
