    This very short interview seems to sum it up pretty well.

    I guess that's what happens when you say something on Fox that they don't want said.

    That was almost as predictable as Obama's teleprompter telling him to wipe the fake tear while talking about the shooting in Newtown yesterday. Good thing he didn't read that out loud as opposed to actually wiping his eye...

    Wonder if it was the thought of testifying that made her faint?

    Much talk about Hillary being the 2016 Dem candidate. Not sure we would want a POTUS who is prone to fainting spells?

She cannot testify on Thursday but shes not in the hospital, and no one saw this fainting take place. There isnt anything they won't do to keep Obama from taking the fall.
    Bingo..............

    The NYTimes reporting on Benghazi
    “Systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus,” the report said, resulted in security “that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.”
    Yet the article ends with an inconsistency about what military could have responded had they been given the order to do so ...
    On the night of the attack, the Pentagon was able to divert an unarmed Predator drone operating 90 miles away to Benghazi, and the C.I.A. later used it to help plan an escape route for the surviving Americans. But other military forces were too far away or could not be mobilized in time.
    There were some forces available that could have arrived before the death of all four victims.

    What is your source for this claim?

    I will never understand why we didn't at the very least have F18's SCREAMING at rooftop level over the area, breaking every window in the city. I really think that their simple presence would have sent the "insurgents" scurrying. I don't know if we keep F 18's at Sigonella in Sicily, but if we do, that's only about 450 miles from Bengazi, which is less than 30 minutes away.

    And this the the sad part ...
    By Guy Taylor-The Washington Times
    The father of a former Navy SEAL killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, says he learned the details of his son’s bravery not from the Obama administration, but in an email from an American whose life was saved by his son.

    Tyrone Woods, 41, was found “slumped over his machine gun, which was caked with blood,” Charles Woods, the former SEAL’s father, said during a telephone interview from his home in Hawaii.

    “He had continued to fire until he had no blood left and was unable to fire anymore,” Mr. Woods said.
    He did not identify the email’s sender but said he later spoke with the person who “told me how Ty died.”

    Washington politics has largely shifted attention from what actually happened nearly three months ago in the Benghazi attack, in which U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, former SEAL Glen Doherty and State Department officer Sean Smith also were slain.

    Republicans have accused the Obama administration of attributing the attack to spontaneous protests over a U.S.-made anti-Islam video, and not terrorists, in order to maintain the president’s foreign policy image before Election Day.
    The White House and congressional Democrats have accused Republicans of exploiting the situation for political gain.
    For family members such as Mr. Woods, the need to know what occurred in Benghazi is as real today as it was the moment they learned that their loved ones had perished.

    Some are angry at the Obama administration, and even the most politically neutral among them say they are dispirited by the way the incident has been spun by Democrats, Republicans and news media.

    ‘Deserve far better’
    “The frustration is that all of the energy is focused on who to blame within our own government,” said Kate Quigley, sister of Glen Doherty, who was 42 when he died in Benghazi.

    “There’s been so much finger-pointing back and forth, and somebody like Glen was completely bipartisan in his job. What he did was try to save American lives, whether he was protecting Republicans or Democrats, that did not matter,” Mrs. Quigley said in a telephone interview from her home in Marblehead, Mass.
    50 years from now the truth may be completely revealed, but it will be too late for the families of these brave men.
