hillary is mad because she now realizes that obama set her up to fail on this...this will ruin her chances to run in 2016, since she now sounds and acts and looks like a washed up old hag. This will clear the decks for obama to groom Oprah to run...forget Joe Biden, he's a clown. Oprah will get the women vote, blacks vote, queers vote, chubby people vote, and 47% ers vote.

It wasn't a grand plot but a power play. My guess is undercovers and intelligence sources were ignored to see how far the plot would play out then swoop in on them with massive arrests & raids, press conferences with flow charts and photographs. Careers are made after stuff like that.
Then after the ooops-the enabled plot went too far, they had to cover up negligence and protect their undercovers and intelligence sources.
My guess with Benghazi they're protecting intelligence sources as much as anything. But with intelligence sources there is usually 'intelligence' to be acted on or in this case not acted on.
You seem to make some good points but it is my understanding that Government cannot protect a free society proven by Feb. 26, 1993. Dec. 7, 1941, September 11, 2001, Abe Lincoln, JFK, RFK, and March 30, 1981 Ronald Reagan was almost assassinated with a multitude of Secret Service and cops all around him.

Every Western nation is still very vulnerable to an al Qaeda Dirty Bomb.

All these years later ZERO people were held accountable for September 11, 2001.

The corrupt Democratic Senator Tom Daschle agreed with corrupt Dick Cheney not to even have a 911 commission.

After the Jersey Girls put pressure on the Bush administration Then they put corrupt Philip David Zelikow in charge of the phony baloney 911 investigation.

BTW: Philip Zelikow now works in the Obama White House.

In 2008 until now ZERO people were not held accountable for the Wall Street/Housing meltdown.

The stage is set my Topix friends.

Corporate Hillary Clinton vs Corporate Jeb Bush 2016.

Wall Street wins again and "WE THE PEOPLE" lose as usual.

==========

The Constitution 101:

In the Federalist Papers it said: We were not going to have a monarchy, and we were not going to have a democracy.$$$$$$$

And to this day we have neither. For two hundred years we have had an oligarchical system in which men of property can do well (Dumbya Bush), and others are on their own.$$$$$$$

American politics is essentially a family affair, as are most oligarchies. When the father of the Constitution, James Madison, was asked how on earth any business could get done in Congress when the country contained 100 million people whose representatives would number half a thousand, Madison took the line that oligarchy's iron law always obtains: A few people invariably run the show; and keep it, if they can, in the family.$$$$$$$

Our founding fathers had such a fear and loathing of democracy that they invented the Electoral College so that the popular voice of the people could be throttled, much as the Supreme Court throttled the Floridians on December 12, 2000.$$$$$$$

We were to be neither a democracy, subject to majoritarian tyranny, nor a dictatorship, subject to Caesarean folly.$$$$$$$

As American media is controlled by that corporate America which provides us with political candidates a well-informed electorate is not possible.$$$$$$$

Supreme Court Justice / 1941

"The two greatest obstacles to democracy in the United States are, first, the widespread delusion among the poor that we have a democracy, and second, the chronic terror among the rich, lest we get it."

Georgia's just pissed that there's nobody out there to get the Klan vote, the fat cracker vote, or the white suburban nutcase vote. And even if there WERE, it wouldn't be enough to win the PResidency anymore!

Sec'y Clinton is, even as we speak, answering the silly, abusive partisan attacks of Republicans in a very humble yet effective way. She takes responsibility, has already directed that security be beefed up, and has also directed that security requests be given TOP priority.
This is being dealt with, but naturally the far right will continue to try to use the issue to attack Mr. Obama, who knew nothing of any security demands from Libya (nor did Sec'y Clinton). Idiots pretend that such requests go immediately to the highest offices in the land, when in fact they do no such thing.
But then, everything the far right and Republicans have said about the issue shows that they give terrorists a pass while condemning their own President. The right are not real Americans.
HILLARY CHOKES UP, LASHES OUT ON HILL. This is not presidential material. If she can’t handle an outpost, she surly can’t handle protecting the country.

His presidency is based on taking from people to give to others. That includes the middle class. Taxes in real terms have gone up big time as wages have lagged and jobs have not kept up and even they are less then then 40 hours for obvious reasons. Many people have lost much of their wealth and people like you laugh it off. Your concept of what our financial system is, is infantile. Perhaps giving us paybacks, huge tax exemptions and the like would have proven the Dem spiel. But keeping the status quo with what got him elected and knowing that the ones who saved and did the right thing were the collateral to keep this sham going, keeps you going. You see, we were not included. Hence, people are buying guns. And getting ready for you as the system continues to decline. Remember this, progressive Dems are the ones who are making 95% of the threats on others if not more. One other thing, a few people on TOPIX making their point known that does not agree with you is not whining. Learn to collect your winnings with dignity, fool. Because the guns are flying off the shelves by a massive amount of people being quiet. To them, survival and defense are coming. And they won't be in any mood to here your whining when you run to them for protection from the progressives who hate you also. As you will find out.
