The NAZIs did the arresting, which is what I was suggesting. Suppressing the opposition is right in the fascist rule book. That's what you suggested, right? Arresting republicans, the opposition. War on women, dirty air and dirty water, throw grandma over the cliff, evil rich people, racists, and more suppression.

The Attack wasn't conducted by Al Qaeda,all we are certain of is an Al Qaeda like militia group who were present during the overthrow Gadaffi was involved. Benghazi only meant an opportunity for votes for the republicans. They've been and continue to try to milk Benghazi for votes and political votes. The only ones that don't believe that is the minority in the country clinging to desperation to save the GOP

This happened right before the election and Obama said Al qaeda was no longer a threat since he killed Osama. Susan and Hillary covered Obama's azz to keep the people from knowing the truth that Al qaeda was still a threat and done this. Obama lied and they knew it would hurt his election. Benghazi is not going away until the truth is make known to the people of the United States. We got some news from the British about our Ambassador being drug threw the streets and raped when this first happened. The parents of these four Americans still have not been told anything about how their sons died.

Where's there evidence this was Al Qaeda and not one of the militia in Benghazi who recently defeated Gadaffi? Or do you just lump all Muslim on the same Camel?

Let's get the "who", right first. This is how we ended up loosing all those lives in Iraq, jumping to conclusions after 9/11 with murky details.

and now the story on invading Iraq is coming unglued, looks like Cheney and Bush were making up the story and evidence to justify invading Iraq as microphones and the press was put in their faces.

The point was Obama couldn't have an Al Qaeda attack on a consulate while campaigning for re-election, gloating about Osama Bin Laden was dead and Al Qaeda is on the road to defeat.
The controversy is about the cover up of a screw up.

The Republicans cut $300 Million from the State Department Funding, and mandated them to use the lowest bidders for security, not the best qualified. That's all contained in the detailed ARB Report of Benghazi. The Consequences for the GOP Spending Cuts, and Sequestration in Feb 2011 was the deaths of 4 American Diplomats.

You saved special interest groups who financially support Republican Candidates from having their special tax provisions removed!

OBAMA was asked for security for MONTHS before he murdered 4 Americans. He did not send anyone or anything. As far as 9/11 NO ONE GOT FAIR WARNING like Obama did. The terrorist hit the twin towers when Bush was reading to Children and he was notified then and he came back to D.C. unlike Obama who flew to VEGAS. You can not compare 9/11 with Benghazi. Bush no warning - Obama months of warning and the British and Red Cross left the area because of the threat that Obama ignored.

The Al Qaeda Information had been posted in the Feb Daily Briefings, the attack was some 8 months later. How was that no enough time to track down suspects? Hell, Bin Laden escaped Bush for 8 years, living down the block form the military academy in Pakistan, America pays the bills for that Military Academy. I would appear to me that all the supposed great intelligence Bush had and presided over, failed to bring him down the block into Bin Laden's compound.

If Bush did something when he was told Al Qaeda was going to hijack jets and hit US landmarks, three thousand Americans would be alive.
Bush had a month notice and it was in his daily briefing: we know that he was told.
Show us where Obama was told that he needed more security in Benghazi.
Put aside, for one minute, the FACT that the Republicans in Congress were the ones who cut the funding for state department security.

Benghazi was a Republican inspired political ploy to gain traction for a failing Presidential Campaign, If the Republicans cared about the Diplomats in Benghazi and around the world, they would not have reduced funding to the State Department, and or mandated that the lowest bidders be chosen to provide security, but rather spared no expense to have properly qualified security in place. Deal with your consequences.

The majority of Americans know the truth. Benghazi is a casualty of Republican Spending Cuts. The Spectulatory Dance being performed by Republicans doesn't change public opinion on Benghazi. The Republicans have been hoping for a tragedy since this President came into office and have conspired to help a catastrophe take shape in hopes of using that as a spring board to relevancy.

If it was no big deal, and a Republican " ploy" to get votes, why didn't our Dear Leader just say he was "not involved" and move on? Why the elaborate cover up? This is a simple question that no one in the regime can seem to answer. It's hard, when you've been lying through your teeth for almost six months, to keep your stories straight. Benghazi will be the end of the Obama Regime.
Why did they dream up a story so fast about an American making a movie and then arrest the American i the middle of the night like a broken down 3rd world dictatorship.

The answer lies in what the CIA was doing in Benghazi and what they were doing with weapons. They did not want Americans to know we were supplying weapons and shoulder fired missiles to Al qaeda in Libya (you know the group responsible for 9/11) and their efforts to quietly moving them to Syria.

And obama does not want you to know how badly he failed in Libya with a country falling into ruin, civil war and in control of terrorist. Great job obama; our evil dictator.

obama would rather make up a story (which came out so fast you know it was already a contingency plan) a story to sacrifice another American on the alter of obama for the sake of his greatness!

These are America's darkest days. I don't know that we will ever be the great nation we once were!

there you go again with 100% hogwash. firstly: i'm not sure what a "spectulatory dance" is, since that is not a word.(another made up liberalism?) secondly, the republicans have been reacting to a horribly managed event, before, during and after. to suggest this is a "ploy" cooked up by repubs, indicates a serious deficiency in IQ. there is a reason this administration and its followers are uncomfortable with all of the questions. the answers indicate a lack of competency and morals.

More BS. Obama has yet to tell the mothers as to how these 4 Americans died. They are still waiting for answers. Obama and Hillary promised them answers and it is now 6 months and they have NOTHING. Hillary - "what difference does it make" and Obama going off to Vegas to Campaign and go on the View talk show to tell the world it was a 'VIDEO' one lie after another and you blame the Reps for wanting to get to the truth. Just like a Dem you could care less aboaut anything that does not pertain to you. Well when the freebees and the goodies are gone because there no longer is a middle class to pay for them what are you going to do then.

Every presidential administration has lied in the past but this one takes the cake, constantly day after day they lie. Transparency, that's a crock Obama and his people have hidden almost everything about his lifefrom us, from his transcripts in college to his birth certificate, although they finally came up with one after two years, no one who got of Bengazi, Libya is talking,why is this? If the GOP had any guts they would start the impeachment process, they have all the Evidence they need, McCain, Graham, ect know a lot more then the public, but these RINO'S allow this, McCain acts tough on TV, but he is different behind closed doors I would guess, NONE of these elected officials are looking out for the legal American citizen.

..EDITED....
The "story" about the movie (or rather, the YouTube video of the trailer for the movie) was not "dreamt up," idiot. It was perfectly real, and resulted in riots all over the Muslim world.

Here's what a far RIGHT site said about it at the time:

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/09/12/th...

"But on the same day that the 11th anniversary of the tragedy was being remembered, two notable, anti-American events unfolded in the Middle East in Egypt, Islamists tore down the American flag at the U.S. embassy and, in Libya, radicals burned down the U.S. consulate and killed a U.S. diplomat. These actions were taken, not as a result of the 9/11 anniversary, but in retribution for an obscure anti-Islam and anti-Prophet Muhammad film."

LOL!
