The genie is out of the bottle and further coverup will just weaken Obama's position.
Expect Obama to soon reveal that he was deceived by his trusted staff and throw the offenders under the bus.
Maybe Petreaus, maybe Panetta, maybe Hillary.
That doesn't negate him from blame as commander in chief. This drama begins at the top, imao.

You lament the amount of illegitamate births; yet, you scorn the handing out of birth control pills, the morning after pills and condoms; all of which can reduce that figure. You support bills that make it more and more difficult for poor young women to obtain abortions.
It never ends with you people does it?

Conservatives have supported profiling liberals and minorities for decades but come unglued when right-wingers are profiled for tax abuse. They are too stupid to see the hypocrisy.

<quoted text>Galt would have more soldiers rush in to face the unknown, typical rightwinger has no regard for human life.
Think of it this way when a rightwinger plants a bomb at an abortion clinic sometimes they plant a second one set to go up a short time later so they can kill more people as they arrive on the scene to assist.
Sometimes it's prudent to err on the side of caution especially if the situation on the ground is unknown.
This shoot first ask questions later is what got us in Iraq the second time around.
Galt has a cartoonish impression of military operations Homer.

Obama says Benghazi is a side show.

Everyone who knows anything about this scandal knows the side show was Obama, Hillary, Rice & Oapy the Press Secretary perpetrated the side show by claiming the successful terrorist attack on our embassy was due to a Youtube video for two weeks back when the election was close and two weeks after Obamatard said:

Al Qaeda is on the run! Bin Laden is dead!

Mission Accomplished!

Okay, since I know most liberals won't even bother clicking on the link, here's a recap of this article by NBC today:
"The White House’s terrible, horrible Friday spills over: Everything that happened last Friday -- the reporting on the revisions to the Benghazi talking points, the news that the IRS had targeted conservative groups, reporters pummeling White House Press Secretary Jay Carney at his briefing -- represented the White House’s worst day since the first presidential debate. And it all spilled over to the Sunday shows and today’s news.
"Sen. Dianne Feinstein alluded to on 'Meet the Press' yesterday when NBC’s David Gregory asked her what she would have liked to see Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton do different after Benghazi.'Oh, to move faster. To say,‘Yes, this was in fact a terrorist act.’ I mean, it was so evident.'”

It gets worse as you keep reading.
Lol, so do your comments!!

“Frankly, had I been in the job at the time, I think my decisions would have been just as theirs were.” Bush-appointed Secretary of Defense Bob Gates on the administration’s response to the Benghazi attack

And…

“We don’t have a ready force standing by in the Middle East, and so getting somebody there in a timely way would have been very difficult, if not impossible.” Bush-appointed Secretary of Defense Bob Gates on the ability of the military to respond to Benghazi as it was happening

And…

“I would not have approved sending an aircraft, a single aircraft, over Benghazi under those circumstances.” Bush-appointed Secretary of Defense Bob Gates on the administration’s decision to not deploy air support during the Benghazi attacks

And the best of the bunch…

“It’s sort of a cartoonish impression of military capabilities and military forces. The one thing that our forces are noted for is planning and preparation before we send people in harm’s way, and there just wasn’t time to do that.” Bush-appointed Secretary of Defense Bob Gates on critics who expected the U.S. military to swing into immediate action in Benghazi during the attacks

I thought Galt's post was quite pointed and insightful. Why didn't you answer his question? "By your logic, why bother with marriage at all, straight or homosexual? Just screw away, like ghetto bunnies."
So...why bother with a definition? Someone else is bound to come up with a different version. Are you going to be the one who excludes them and denies them their rights?
And you didn't answer my my questions. Why is it wrong that Clinton got head from Lewinsky but, you accept Thomas Jefferson having an extra marital affair with a slave, even impregnated her, or all your "founding fathers", for that matter? They all were know, or it was common for slave owners to have 2 families, a white one &, a black one. Why the double standard for your "founding fathers?" You don't hear about that in the history books! Yet they're idolized, faces carved in a mountain & all!

Now a far as marriage, to each it's own! If marriage means so much to you, do so, but if you don't see that it's no more than a way to outcast the unmarried, a govt money scheme, & a lawfully binding contract, you're more off than I thought! In most religions God is all seeing, therefore when they tell you the 2 are now 1 in the eyes of God, who do you think they're talking about? A God that is all seeing, & knows when 2 people are knotted at heart hence"God is love,"or a govt that now recognizing the 2 people as a married couple? If it were God, he saw that the 2 people loved eachother before they were married!

Now as for the ghetto bunnies comment. I'll first start with the TANF(Temporary Asst for Needy Family) statistics. TANF is the most common & used form of welfare, & around 80% are single white women. So who's really sleeping around like bunnies, the ghetto or suburban white America?

Secondly on the same front, if you need a piece of paper to stop you from sleeping around, well, you're a whore, & chances are there's issues that exist alot deeper than marriage, a ring, & a certificate of "acceptance."

"There seems to be little downside to sending warplanes to Benghazi. Perhaps such a demonstration could have prevented the attack on the CIA safe house, saving two lives and halting the loss of a critical intelligence operation."

Google search of ' "CIA safe house" in benghazi ' resulted in about 120,000 results, but that dumbass wants idiots like you to think he has some kind of inside information.

Bush neutralized Gaddafi, who was able to control the radical Islamists.

Obama turned the radicals loose, with Benghazi as the result.
