Only one question. Ladybug, with all due respect, as hard as it is when it comes to your one track reasoning, if this was your "son" that was begged for help, attacked, tortured and suffered a painful, horrific death for 6 long agonizing hours, would YOU not want somebody to investigate and find out why?

Kozy, I wasn't arguing with anybody. I was just saying generally with all the usual posts, why bother on commenting as it just causes more of the usual arguments. I'm getting more and more where I just read all the comments on any given article or poll question and sit back and shake my head. On one hand I need some popcorn to further enjoy the entertainment, but on the other hand it's sad how this country is becoming more and more socialist. And it's amazing how many people out there have no brains to reason through anything.

...White House spokesman Jay Carney improbably and improperly claimed that the Rhodes advice was not "explicitly" about Benghazi but about protests throughout the Middle East. CNN's Jake Tapper called Carney's comments "dissembling, obfuscating and … insulting." He was being generous. Rice was dispatched to discuss Benghazi, which is why she was grilled about it on every show.

White House officials brought this House investigation on themselves. They could have avoided it by simply telling the truth. Unfortunately, that was too much to ask.

So here we are...

...A former deputy chief of mission in Libya, Gregory Hicks, testified last year his "jaw dropped" when he watched Rice blame the video. Retired general Robert Lovell, on duty at U.S. Africa Command at the time, testified last week, "What we did know ... was that this was a hostile action … a terrorist attack." And, last week, former national security spokesman Tommy Vietor when asked how the administration came up with its video tale replied that there were "guys quoted in newspapers saying the video is why they were there." So much for operating on the best intelligence...(CONTINUED)...

...Though White House officials say they were operating on the best intelligence available, they were willfully ignoring information that the attack was preplanned by groups with terrorist links, a fact that undermined President Obama's re-election claim that "al-Qaeda is on the run." Cherry-picking intelligence is a big no-no.

It took real effort for the White House to overlook the tsunami of evidence that contradicted its campaign talking points. Before Rice's appearances on Sept. 16, 2012, National Public Radio reported that Libya's president had told NPR that al-Qaeda was responsible for the "precalculated, preplanned attack." Former deputy CIA director Mike Morell testified last month, "Analysts said from the get-go that al-Qaeda was involved."...(CONTINUED)...

To summarize...

Here's why it's more than just poltics: An e-mail has surfaced from a deputy national security adviser to Susan Rice on how to characterize the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on Sunday news programs. He advised Rice, then ambassador to the U.N., that her primary goal was to "underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy." The e-mail was redacted when the most-transparent-administration-in-history provided Benghazi documents to Congress earlier, but was found through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Democrats are furious that the House will hold a vote to create a select committee to investigate the administration's response to the attack in Libya that left four Americans dead. They know this won't end well...(CONTINUED)

I'm tired of arguing with idiots, so I'll just sit back and shake my head, as always. And folks wonder why there's a growing percentage of people who don't even bother to vote anymore. Well, I'm one of them.

I wish you hadn't said you were for the pipeline...now we'll have to read a bunch of postings from bug on the pipeline will only gives us one third of a job. And, it will cause all current and future oil to be shipped to other countries and it will cause leaking into a stream in Pennsylvania which will seep into the Gulf of Mexico and the Lake of Love in Brugge.

Why did you do that?

Oh-oh. Side issue again. I might have spoken too soon:

" Last week, Reid said he would be open to having amendments on the bill, including one that would have required a vote on the Keystone XL pipeline. Republicans asked for consent to add five amendments to the measure, but Democrats objected. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Reid was impeding on the rights of the minority by not allowing amendments to the energy bill.

"This is not the way to run the Senate," McConnell said. "The minority represents a lot of Americans, millions and millions of Americans. We're entitled to have our ideas debated and voted on in the Senate as well. Votes that we want to vote on, not ones that the majority leader picks for us."

(Full disclosure: I would be in favor of the pipeline)

Hey, separate issue, but Congress finally working together (and circumventing Obama).

"Frustrated that the administration appears to be slow walking a decision on whether to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline past the November midterm election, a bipartisan coalition of senators is rallying around a bill that would effectively brush aside the president and authorize the project.

Reid is no fan of the pipeline, but he is feeling heat from his own members to bring the issue up for a vote – possibly this week – provided Republicans agree to support a separate energy efficiency bill drafted by Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Rob Portman (R-OH)."

I guess that's 2 issues they're working together on.

How can you have a foreign policy when you have no support from the congress,

He went into Libya and caught*****for supplying air support. Caught*****for not doing enough.

Syria he got no support from congress or our allies,

Unkraine no support from congress to even supply relief . Our European allies aren't doing their share.

I believe we were running guns out of Libya and into Syria. Quietly supporting al Qaeda in Syria, which we're now openly doing. I think they wished for that to be covered up. I also think the idea that it was a terrorist attack was the narrative to go with, since that's such an emotional narrative. But it also serves to deflect from the fact that we went into that country and disrupted a civil war--in other words, we were the terrorists. It IS a failure of our broader foreign policy and it certainly isn't just Obama's foreign policy. But I believe the public has the right to know these things, in hopes that someday we can rethink or foreign policy and stop isolating and bankrupting ourselves.

I have no idea why you put the number of sessions for congress as I have said many times that they should be part time and paid part time and should be term limited.

I shutter every time they pass a new law as it is passed to limit our freedom.

ladybug, I have explained things to you so many times and your response is always the liberal talking points including it's Bush's fault.

Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, and the President all gave interviews and speaches, and condolence messages that were not true as it seems and decisions were made because of those speaches that were wrong, misleading and possibly affected an election. If Romney had been elected for doing this, I still would have demanded the truth...but it seems that the democrats don't care and there lies the difference. I say let's get all the truth out there and it is what it is and then let's find thosr who killed these four men and then bring them to justice
