This is a NO WIN for the federal government. Either you didn't know what
happened, and you look incredibly foolish and incompetent, because everyone else
besides you knew what was going on besides you. Or, perhaps worse, you did know,
but refused to tell the truth, making you a liar. My heart goes out to the
families of two deceased Navy SEALs who may never know what happened to their
sons, because of the incompetence and/or lack of integrity coming from our
leaders in Washington.
Killpack, Just like all the Americans who died in Iraq looking for the mythical
weapons of mass destruction that Condoleezza Rice told us about.
John McCain (who has never gotten over losing to President Obama), Lindsey
Graham (from south carolina...need anyone say more) and Kelly Ayotte (who
deleted ALL her e-mails) need to reveal all their e-mails, any type of
communication with anyone, as well as bank statements and a timeline of their
whereabouts from 9/11 going forward.Americans are deeply troubled by
the acts of these three senators.What are they hiding?
Ah, yes, Selznik. I was waiting for someone to go there. I'm glad you did.
There is a HUGE difference between the thousands of military personnel who lost
their lives in Iraq and the two Navy SEALs who lost theirs in Benghazi. First of
all, When Condoleeza Rice told us there were WMD in Iraq, at the behest of her
superiors, she wasn't hiding anything. It was very bad intel, but everyone
had access to the same intel. Granted, a few in Congress, like Barack Obama, to
their credit, still opposed going into Iraq. But MOST went along with the bad
intel as they were still sore about 9/11 and wanted blood. Pretty much NO ONE
believed the incident in Benghazi was a random, video-inspired uprising, because
everyone, besides the Obama Administration, knew it wasn't. Second, the
Bush Admin WAS wrong about WMD and has since been crucified for it, especially
by the mainstream media. The blame has fallen solely on Bush and his inner
circle while most in Washington indeed wanted to invade Iraq initially. There is
NO SUCH outrage from the same media today for the way The White House totally
botched the Benghazi incident.
(Continued) Third, and perhaps most important, when we invaded Iraq on the
premise that there were WMD, and that premise turned out to be false, the
outrage didn't occur immediately. It occurred with time as the war took its
toll economically and in lives lost. However, oddly enough, many in the military
remained positive with the idea of going to Iraq, WMD or no. They were happy to
have removed Saddam Hussein from power and were happy still to fight the
unsavory elements trying to replace him. And while thousands of American lives
have been lost, it can't at all be considered in vain. However, two Navy
SEALs are dead, several years later. We know why thousands died in Iraq. Why are
there two dead Navy SEALs? The Obama Administration has told us NOTHING, except
for the complete and utter falsehood that it was because of an anti-Muslim
video, which simply isn't true. Why are they dead? Why is an Ambassador
dead? This is a terrible scandal! If I were still in the military and two people
died under my watch and I didn't explain myself in like manner, I would be
in the brig.
I guess I don't see why this is such a big deal for anyone but Sean Hannity
and his cronies. What I would like to know is why McCain isn't
investigating charges by Florida's former Republican governor and party
chairman that Florida Republicans deliberately attempted to keep Democratic
voters from voting in Florida and in other states too.
viejogeezer,A dead ambassador and two dead Navy SEALs, that's
no big deal at all, is it. Are you serious?
Kilpack,How did Susan Rice reporting what the CIA told her about the
attack have anything to do with 2 dead seals and an ambassador. I don't
think the story of an alleged cover up has legs beyond Fox news, and a few
grandstanding politicians. What if everything Darrell Issa, John McCain and
Lindsay Graham claim is true, how does that change anything and what difference
does it make? It's rather like Pres Bush on the deck of an aircraft
carrier announcing the war is over. Neither on is very important. However, for
my part the use of governmental power to keep citizens from voting certainly
Not out for blood but just some reasonable, plausible answers to some simple
questions. Glad some of this is starting to come out. I still think Susan Rice
is a distraction for what really happened during and since the attack.
