you have continually posted proven wrong crap on this issue. you'd think you'd get a clue sooner or later that you have been use like a gutter waif. I would suggest thinking for yourself, but i am not sure that would be any better, or even a viable option in your case...
I got this from the hearing - read it and tell all of us that its not true and it is just plain BS like you always do.

I am sure the Administration that caused the Benghazi massacre is telling the truth about how every one died. Oh, yes, I believe them. You would have to be half witted to believe a word from Obama, and his 40 thieves. Even people who once believed are coming to their senses. Did you catch Jay Carney's press conference? It was a disaster for the Administration, and Obama.

Because the administration is borrowing the monies from Communist China to give to the 11 or more million illegal aliens they want to give amnesty to.

Investing is one thing, the FED borrowing directly to pay basic bills is a seperate thing. In addition to outright borrowing the FED is selling Communist China Treasury Bills, which is in effect an investment and open to anybody really.

It simply doesn't make sense that authorities wouldn't launch relief efforts to try to save our personnel there. Suggestions I've heard are that the military/diplomatic people knew that no air or ground support could reach the consular building in time and called it off for that reason.

But certainly Hicks' allegations deserve further investigation.
Not a reason to call off a mission. Being late is still a response. There are security concerns and the need to cover the CIA complex . Further it is American soil. We need to treat those standing on it as invaders. Killing the murderers of our people is not a bad thing...

no one ever called off a mission. they were sent as soon as protocol for sending US troops intoa foreign country were met.

they did, in fact, save most of the SD personnel. did you forget that part?

Perhaps I should have made it a little more clear.
The Communist Chinese Government is buying American Government Treasury Bills from the American Government.

I must agree. The administration was warned before Benghazi that the mission was in peril. The mission pleaded for help. That bomb that resulted in the gigantic hole in the wall should have been a tipoff all was not well. The Brits and Red Cross beating feet from the area because of the danger was another.

Why wasn't the mission closed? What the hell was Hillary thinking? Why didnt she connect the dots?

By the inaction and failure to respond to requests for help, the administration is guilty of negligent homicide.

Well seeing how we can't talk to any survivors-we don't know. How is it you do? I for one do not accept anything I hear, unlike you.
