The election was two months away.

There is no proof the attack was done by Al Qaeda.

So the truth comes out. You could care less about the dead Americans, this is all about what political advantage it prevented teabaggers from using to defeat Obama.
It seems to me those deaths were discarded in order to get reelected. To me, Obama couldn't be boasting about Bin Laden being dead and Al Qaeda being on the run during a campaign and have an Al Qaeda related attack on his hands. The cover up was politically motivated then and is now politically motivated to bury Hillary. Your federal government at work for you.

The cover up appears to only exist in the Republican minds. There is no answer acceptable to their witch hunt..Their agenda is obvious to all but the ones that they need to support them and they prove that over and over. The Republicans could tell their base [Limbaugh Fox] that Hillary conspired with the terrorist and like clock work it would be on here as gospel.
The "cover up" exists in your mind too just for the fact that you have acknowledged that there was one. You libs make this Freudian slip all of the time and it is a dead giveaway that even you realize this as a "cover up". Plain and simple.

you can always trust a scientist....


'...The Cave Men Who Never Existed'

" On the July 16, 1971, NBC Nightly News, David Brinkley announced a stunning discovery:

"The outside world, after maybe a thousand years, has discovered a small tribe of people living in a remote jungle in the Philippines. Until now, the outside world didn't know they existed… and they didn't know the outside world existed. Their way of living is approximately that of the Stone Age."

Yup. That's real popular these days....
So, how many people signed up for ObamaKare and paid with their own money?
Over 8 million Americans signed up for Obamacare(many of them young millennials who republicans said would run away from buying insurance ). Also, you forgot that the 'Death Panels' are not in Obamacare. The Democrats put the Death Panels in Dodd-Frank Finance Reform for incorrigible criminal , law-breaking and incompetent too big to fail banks that threaten to bring down the whole U S financial system .

GOP’s demented “Benghazi!” disease: Why conservatives so desperately need a scandal
National security is one of the right's best organizing principles. But first they need a controversy
The Republicans may be terrible at governance and they may even be awful at politics. But if there’s one thing they know how to do it’s stoke a scandal. In fact, it’s their very special gift and one to which they can always turn to rile up the rubes and make the Democrats dance on the head of a pin.
I won’t go into the details of the latest alleged “revelation” that supposedly prompted the new investigation (that they’ve obviously been planning for a while). You can read all the charges, countercharges and explanations all over the Internet. But the truth is that while it’s important for journalists and officials to produce the straight story, the substance of the story is not the winner the GOP seems convinced it has.
....Benghazi!™ is about portraying the Obama administration as being wimpy on terrorism, of course. But think about that for a minute. The Obama administration is the one that killed bin Laden and is taking down terrorists — and anyone who might accidentally look like one, which is a whole other story — with drone strikes all over the Middle East and Africa.(It’s true that he’s failed to invade a random country just to prove America’s manhood, but he’s still got a couple of years.) The sad truth is that the Obama administration has made not one single move on terrorism with which the right would normally quarrel. But they simply cannot admit that this or one of their most important organizing principles is off the table: National security is as fundamental to them as low taxes and gun rights. If Democrats are not lily-livered cowards hiding beneath the camo-costumes of Real Americans, then they are missing a huge piece of their argument. So they’re doing what it takes: They’re making a national security scandal up out of whole cloth.
But this isn’t about Obama, not really. They have another Clinton to kick around and her involvement in Benghazi!™ as secretary of state gave them a perfect opportunity to dust off the old scandal sheet music and brush up on those old songs. They’re hoping that the mere sound of it will set off a Pavlovian reaction in independent voters and older Democrats who cringe at the prospect of a replay of the ’90s. And if the worst should happen and Clinton does get the nod, it’s the gift that keeps on giving. They will very likely control the House and we can expect to see many more “select committees” to investigate Republican hallucinations.
It beats governing. And by that time nearly half the country will already believe that Hillary Clinton ordered the attack on Benghazi in order to cover up her involvement in something even worse. They won’t know exactly what that is, but where there’s smoke there’s fire and this just doesn’t pass the smell test. No doubt Dick Morris will write a book about it.
"Why conservatives so desperately need a scandal" A scandal already exists and it is you libs that recognize, acknowledge, and reinforce the fact that there exists a scandal in all of the liberal press.

and you can always trust an entomologist....


"...Carl Linnaeus had a chance to examine the rare butterfly in 1763 and declared it to be a new species that he named Papilio ecclipsis. He included it in the 12th edition (1767) of his Systema Naturae."


"...But thirty years later, in 1793, the Danish entomologist John Christian Fabricius examined it more closely and realized it was a fake. The black spots had been painted on the wings. The rare butterfly, the only one of its kind ever seen, was nothing more than a common Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni)."

Obama made a solemn promise to bring the terrorists to justice. The head terrorist has given interviews to reporters in public places, but Obama can't seem to find any of them. It's as if he doesn't want to find them.
Mighty Dumb Builder who got his draft lottery number two years before they were drawn shouldn't throw stones.

We do not have the authority to go into Libya without permission.

Bush made a promise to get Bin Laden & then two years later declared Bin Laden irrelevant and never did get him. You loved that.

So if & when Obama declares the Bengazi attackers irrelevant & quits looking for them, then he would be jut like your hero.

So really, when the f*ck are you whiney little babies going to quit with the Benghazi lies?

give it a break carol.
The Bush administration disclosed yesterday that it had vastly underestimated the number of service personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan seeking medical treatment from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and warned that the health care programs will be short at least $2.6 billion next year unless Congress approves additional funds.
Veterans Affairs budget documents projected that 23,553 veterans would return this year from Iraq and Afghanistan and seek medical treatment. However, Veterans Affairs Secretary Jim Nicholson told a Senate committee that the number has been revised upward to 103,000 for the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30. He said the original estimates were based on outdated assumptions from 2002.
"The bottom line is there is a surge in demand in VA [health] services across the board," Nicholson told the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee.
Just last week, the VA revealed that the rise in demand for VA health facilities had caused a $1 billion shortfall in operating funds for the current year. That would more than double in the coming year without congressional intervention.
Senate Republicans, embarrassed and angered over the revelations, yesterday announced plans to pass emergency legislation this morning to add $1.5 billion to the fiscal 2005 appropriation. The move is designed to appease angry veterans groups and preempt a Democratic proposal calling for $1.42 billion in increased VA spending.
The action represents a reversal of GOP policies toward the VA. For the past four months, House and Senate Republicans have repeatedly defeated Democratic amendments to boost VA medical funding.
and did Bush ever go to a Iraq war Vet's funeral?
If you're going to blame Republicans, then I assume you're going to blame Democrats too.

According to your article in 2005:

"Democrats intensified charges that the Bush administration and the Republican congressional majorities are failing to care for those who put their lives on the line for the country."

The number of backlogs went from 100,000 in 2008 to almost 1 million under their watch.

Why didn't the Democrats vote to increase VA funding in 2005 under Republican leadership?

(At least Bush didn't try to hide the truth. How refreshing.)

and you can always trust archaeology....

"...At a press conference on November 5 Fujimura confessed he had planted Stone Age artifacts at the site, and had faked many discoveries. He kept his head bowed in shame during the conference and said, "I was tempted by the Devil. I don't know how I can apologise for what I did... I wanted to be known as the person who excavated the oldest stoneware in Japan."

It's impossible to determine if the terrorists were motivated or not by the video. It's almost certain they saw the video and who can say that it didn't play some role in the attack. It is pure folly to try to look into the minds of Islamic terrorists to determine what makes them do anything. We have our own idiots here, what makes DBWriter post the dumbass stuff on Topix? He's just as crazy as they are, only difference is he just talks crazy, they act out his fantasies.
