Inquiry harshly criticizes U.S. State Department over Benghazi attack

Dec 18, 2012 Full story: Reuters 315

Security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya was grossly inadequate to deal with a September 11 attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three others because of systemic failures within the State Department, an official inquiry found on Tuesday.

Petraeus has already resigned in disgrace over Benghazi… Mitt Romney walked right into that check-mate President Obama brilliantly set up in the 2nd debate on Benghazi when Obama said “Please, proceed”(LOL); and Romney never brought Benghazi up again…

This is a non-issue that was settled when Petraeus resigned; it’s over, we won the election so STFU about it.

"Consulate" in Benghazi?
A "Compound" is not a Consulate!
Sure Chris Stevens is a "U.S. ambassador" , but being the US ambassador alone doesn't magically make and activate a new Consulate out of a "Compound" on the fly! Just wanted to point that out to everyone who get's so-called news from these "JOURNALISTS who hold the sacred "Press Passes" which denied to bloggers and others on alternative bandwidth, or public access tv."

Benghazi review finds systematic State Dept. failures... Developing... Hillary can't get the guts to testify to her failure, her departments failure and still thinks she should be corinated President. If she can't run a department, she cant run the country. Especially with her lying ways that we have already had four years of. She is a coward for not coming before the representatives of those that pay her salary.

O r Alternatively,

I give ALL JOURNALISTS a chance right now to PROVE this compound was a Consulate and shut me up, but if you can't prove that ribbon cutting ceremony year/date/time/and specific persons then YOU must return your press passes to the Police (sick joke this is) and RESIGN FROM YOUR JOBS IN DISGRACE

EVERY ONE OF YOU WHO CALLED IT A CONSULATE!

GET OUT! Nothing you ever say again can be trusted.
If people were smart they would file complaints in every damn public file of every broadcaster, every day until the FCC was forced to yank your dammed frequency allocation!

What damage you do to this country!
Oh yeah almost forgot, Hillary's convenient concussion, yeah right she's another piece of oath breaking scum, ought to be in Ft Leavenworth for her retirement along with Feinstein and here attack on the US Constitution.

It doesn't matter if you don't agree with me. The fact is, what your headed towards here is Obama is allowing all these scumbag oath breakers to bump us all towards Civil War. The Fact is, no matter what the US Constitution says, they want to take your guns, they also want to embrace the UN's Small Arms Treaty. That's the facts.

Regardging Hillary's convenient concussion
it's funny how courts and government agencies COMPEL ME TO APPEAR, meanwhile the oath breaking scum holding office? Not so much.

She ought to be in Ft Leavenworth for her retirement along with Feinstein and here attack on the US Constitution. In fact Obama as well. This stuff has to stop, the Bankers need Prison, the Wars need stop, the CONSTITUTION NEEDS TO BE RESTORED, everything is under attack by our own officials!

If you took an oath, they are DOMESTIC TERRORISTS!

Since retaking control in 2010, House Republicans have aggressively cut spending at the State Department in general and embassy security in particular. Chaffetz and Issa and their colleagues voted to pay for far less security than the State Department requested in 2011 and again this year.

Until proven differently, he is your president. Four years in and this has been one way. But it does not make a difference except for the fact that the other side now acts as yours. Enjoy!

House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012....Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security”— a charge Republicans rejected

Old news, hardly worth the effort to try and spin it anymore. Obama and Clinton walk away from it with only their integrity missing. It's the progressive way.

When will we start to investigate the lapse in security at Sandy Hook?

Are we going to provide security for our schools, in AMERICA?

Will Congress act?

The Benghazi disaster is THE prime example of the least transparent, most inept and corrupt administration in a hundred years. And then even more depressingly there are those who buy their "the dog ate my homework" excuses.

Benghazi was unfortunate like the almost 3000 Americans that were killed when Bush's security was lax on 9-11.

Let's agree and move on, as a united country, to secure our country and our children (the future) with gun control and funding for mental health.

We the People, as PATRIOTIC AMERICANS must demand that Congress act RIGHT NOW and focus its FULL ATTENTION on gun control and mental health care to honor the innocent six-year-olds killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Let's not dwell on the past. Let'd make sure our children never have to endure another Christmas as painful as this one is, because we, as adults, did nothing, again.

Fartsack, you have long demonstrated your marginal intellect on here but lately you've grown extremely fanatical. This is not a good profile. Go get some professional help before you harm someone.

Clinton was chasing interns around the oval office for 8 years while al queda was attacking the US Embassy in Narobi, The US Air Force Barracks in Saudi, The Cole and allowed the 9/11 terroists to train at flight schools leading up to 9/11 seven months into the Bush administration, you piece of garbage. During his horrible reign, he attacked American citizens in our own country, had the first WTC attacks,(did nothing) stole money out of SS and told you clowns he left a surplus! The gullible left is out of control and mentally unstable.
