What a bunch of bunk. You Reichtards had a beef about Iraq, but you expose your deviant sniveling hypocrisy when you discuss the country you can't spell, after Obama has carried on there going on 5 years.
Besides, Obama claimed "Mission Accomplished" two weeks before Benghazi. Obama said the enemy was on the run! Bin Laden dead!
Mission Accomplished!

Galt deals with today where men are still dying for nothing, just like Vietnam.
Do you care at all?
Guard and Reserve enlistments are well off pal__particularly in areas with combat units. There were 19 year old girls and 55 year old men sent to Iraq, many lost homes had auto's repo'd, faced divorces and of course very many died or suffered catastrophic injuries.

The Iraq war was very poorly planned__heck of a job Rummy.

As you know, the Iraq war was fought under "emergency funding" which does not account for future Veterans health care, the replacement of ordinance and equipment or the reimbursement to the state's who furnished Guard and Reserve personnel and equipment.

The Iraq war was an unnecessary disaster!

Now we know that at 8 p.m. Eastern time on the last night of Stevens’s life, his deputy in Libya spoke to Secretary Clinton and informed her of the attack in Benghazi and the fact that the ambassador was now missing.

An hour later, Gregory Hicks received a call from the then–Libyan prime minister, Abdurrahim el-Keib, informing him that Stevens was dead. Hicks immediately called Washington. It was 9 p.m. Eastern time, or 3 a.m. in Libya.

Remember the Clinton presidential team’s most famous campaign ad? About how Hillary would be ready to take that 3 a.m. call? Four years later, the phone rings, and Secretary Clinton’s not there. She doesn’t call Hicks back that evening. Or the following day.

Are murdered ambassadors like those 1.43 million cables she doesn’t read? Just too many of them to keep track of? No. Only six had been killed in the history of the republic — seven, if you include Arnold Raphel, who perished in General Zia’s somewhat mysterious plane crash in Pakistan in 1988.

Before that you have to go back to Adolph Dubs, who died during a kidnapping attempt in Kabul in 1979.

So we have here a once-in-a-third-of-a-century event. And at 3 a.m. Libyan time on September 12 it’s still unfolding, with its outcome unclear. Hicks is now America’s head man in the country, and the cabinet secretary to whom he reports says,“Leave a message after the tone and I’ll get back to you before the end of the week.” Just to underline the difference here: Libya’s head of government calls Hicks, but nobody who matters in his own government can be bothered to.

What was Secretary Clinton doing that was more important?

Obammy and Benghazi

What was the president doing? Aside, that is, from resting up for his big Vegas campaign event.

A real government would be scrambling furiously to see what it could do to rescue its people. It’s easy, afterwards, to say that nothing would have made any difference.

But, at the time Deputy Chief Hicks was calling 9-1-1 and getting executive-branch voicemail, nobody in Washington knew how long it would last.

A terrorist attack isn’t like a soccer game, over in 90 minutes. If it is a sport, it’s more like a tennis match: Whether it’s all over in three sets or goes to five depends on how hard the other guy pushes back.

The government of the United States took the extremely strange decision to lose in straight sets.

Not only did they not deploy out-of-area assets, they ordered even those in Libya to stand down.

Lieutenant Colonel Gibson had a small team in Tripoli that twice readied to go to Benghazi to assist and twice was denied authority to do so, the latter when they were already at the airport.

There weren’t many of them, not compared to the estimated 150 men assailing the compound. But they were special forces, not bozo jihadists.

Back in Benghazi, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty held off numerically superior forces for hours before dying on a rooftop waiting for back-up from a government that had switched the answering machine on and GONE TO VEGAS.

Wind turbines are generally constructed on ridges and are visible from long distances.

Locating wind turbines in crop fields is impractical because roads must be maintained to the turbines for maintenance access.

Wind turbines are taller than most cooling towers.(You do know that hyperbolic towers are just one of many design options?)

Do you ever get anything right?

Good heavens. Stop reading/watching something other than progressive tripe. It makes you look silly, desperate, and most of all, uninformed or disingenuous.

Tha AP story is being carried by the likes of CBS, Reuters, CNN, The Washington Post, and the Gray Lady. Hardly cheerleaders of conservative thought.

You avoided the question Eman Eed.

So why was Afghanistan the center of this planning & finance as you said???

Ummmmmm. Let me think.

Do ya think it was because BIN LADEN WAS THERE?

Will just one of you right whiners admit we invaded Afghanistan to get on Laden??

Is there one??? Carol?? Jimmy? No Surprize/TSM?? Dumbwaiter? Galt?

So far we have Flack & Eman saying we would have invaded Afghanistan if Bin Laden was somewhere else.
