<quoted text>oops, my apologies. it should be you or I said, not you are I said.
regardless, you don't seem to be able to grasp the idea that Obama was involved if Panetta was involved.
not a tough concept and the sentences I used to convey that idea were grammatically correct.
Apparently you have a reading comprehension defect because I not only think Obama was involved but I blame Obama and Hillary exclusively! And the only person your sentence was grammatically correct to would be you. Although perhaps not since after telling me it was "perfectly good" you backed off in your next post. I take it your read the sentence again, maybe twice, and decided it might not make so much sense afterall.
Perhaps you need to relax a bit. You posted something that didn't make sense, at least it didn't come across as you had planned, and I misunderstood what you were trying to say. Apparently we both agree on who was in charge and who was involved.

<quoted text>Well, how do I answer this politely in small enough words...?
You see young child, The President gets these things called security briefings and supposedly intelligent aides and staff keep him informed of the goings on of the business of the United States of America, and the happenings and reports from our official Embassies across the globe provide the data. Even President Clinton paid attention to these. That's how we got involved in Somalia and Kosovo and such. Now the Benghazi Embassy sent numerous official requests and reports to this Administration, and they were very obviously ignored. Then Susan Rice was given wrong information from the White House that a YouTube video was the reason for the attack and that the attack was spontaneous, and maintained that lie for a long period of time, even after the truth was known. Truth was, this was a pre-planned attack with heavy weapons, with several "soft" probes beforehand, by extremist Islamic terorrists.
what were those reports from the consulate? non were for extra security. they were about how unstable the region was. they were written by Stevens. the guy that went to Benghazi of his own accord, obviously he didn't think it was that dangerous and he was our most knowledgable asset of the area.

were those wmall enough words for you?

Patriot Act put in place to spy on and get info on Muslims trying to kill us, Obama's drones are flying around America to spy on Americans.

I have a RAT TERRIER that is very old. Its morning breath especially after it barks a while smells like the worst smell in the universe. I bet michelle obama smells just like that. Can you imagine how much flax-sheen-pure-shea-butter is on the bed linen and furnishings of THE NEW SOUL TRAIN STAGE aka the white house, I mean black house. Have they invited Ri-low, Fred and LaMont there yet to be awarded their congressional medal of honor? Has Al Roker received his for the many years he fought in the struggle to lose pounds from too many soders.

Manufacturing would benefit from all the purchases by local music scene poet momma's if THE CHARLIE RANGLE LIFE LIKE TALKING LOVE DOLL would be produced. obama should help the love doll industry just as he has helped increase cheese for the green manufacturing industry. Each city could hire sorters and craftsmen. They could sort road side tree limb clippings to find suitable SWIRLED tree wood to hand carve phallic effigys. These could be given free to all who join or support the movement FORWARD.

Pull your skirt down little girl your showing your ignorance and indoctrination:

**********
Tens of thousands of domestic drones are zipping through U.S. skies, often flouting tight federal restrictions on drone use that require even the police and the military to get special permits.

Armed with streaming video, swivel cameras and infrared sensors, a new breed of high-tech domestic drones is beginning to change the way Americans see the world -- and one another.

Pilots stated they spotted drones over NY and it was announced on the news just this morning. Perhaps you should try getting info from other places and not just from the LSM that would never report on anything that didn't get cleared by the White House first.

Obama DID NOT act at all! That is the point! Obama went to bed and then flew to NV. Now where in that senario do you find that the president acted as he should as quickly as he should? It's not like they didn't have advanced repeated notifications that the embassey could not handle an attack, it's not like it wasn't 9/11 when there should have been enhanced security to begin with just like we have done every 9/11 since 2002! It's not like every other country and the Red Cross hadn't already pulled out because they said it was too dangerous. What kind of warning does the commander in chief need in order to get it through his thick skull that perhaps some security might be needed if he wasn't going to pull them out altogether like they should have been. Face it, with all these FACTS in the matter the only conclusion you have left is that Obama wanted Stevens killed, was too afraid to show he had lied and hadn't scared off the taliban like he claimed over and over so he couldn't draw attention to the situation by actually doing anything, OR Obama is just plain incompetent! I happen to believe it is all of the above!

Then why the smartass comment to the poster that said they were indeed flying over America? If as you say "we know they are using them to patrol the northern border" then why suggest that the poster you were responding too is some "tin hat" wearing nut? Sucks when the president goes and does all the dumb shit he does and you have to come on here and try to defend it or deny it doesn't it??? Well just be thankful you aren't Carney, poor guy got suckered into being the one to try to explain to the American people why we should be happy with the most lying incompetent president in history!

See, this si where you little brain is losing it. Panetta wouldn't be doing anything if Obama did not tell him to. the Sec Def doean't act on his own in situations like this.

obama got the military doing what the military does. do you think it would have gone better if he was calling all the shots?

you really need to stop dancing on these people's graves to support yur hatred of obama. it is disgusting.

So why do you suppose they are flying over US soil then? Keeping on eye on those misbehaving folks in Iraq, Iran, N Japan, or perhaps China?
