all day and not a ink spot from the supporters of the administration. Isn't it odd how my posts of six months ago are being proven to be true ??

Much has been made of the Obama administration’s initial reaction, which was to say the Benghazi attack appeared to be a spontaneous reaction to a YouTube video that was perceived as disrespectful of Islam. Hicks testified that the video was a “non-event” in Libya, and said that he personally informed Clinton on the night of the attack that Benghazi was under a coordinated terrorist attack. For Republicans, this amounted to one of the smoking guns they were looking for, even though Democrats downplayed that portion of Hicks’ testimony. After U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice went on five Sunday public affairs shows and tagged the Benghazi attack to that video, Hicks said: “I was stunned; my jaw dropped and I was embarrassed.”

CNN, FOX NEWS, and the Blaze are covering the hearings. They weren't around back during Watergate. I said before that this would make that old Watergate thing look like a child's prank.

Are you paying attention swizzer, usedto, and the rest of theMuslim supporting Kool-Ade drinking sheeple???

wow, with the Benghazi thing back in the news and the cover-up being revealed it's looking like swizzer doesn't have a defense for his arrogant, elitist, Muslim pal Barry.

CONTINUED: SMITH: Because that's her department. She is supposed to be on top of it. Yet she claims she knows nothing. It wasn't told to her. Well, who is running the place?

PAT SMITH, MOTHER OF SEAN SMITH, KILLED IN BENGHAZI: Terrible. I cry every night. I don't sleep at night. I need answers. TAPPER: What do you want answers to? What do you not know? SMITH: Why was there no security for him? When they were supposed to have security and the security that they did have was called back. It just -- things do not add up and I'm just told lies. HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.

SMITH: Well, that's what I want to know. Why did it happen? And she is in charge. Why couldn't she do something about it? I blame her.

TAPPER: You blame Secretary of State Clinton.

SMITH: Yes.

TAPPER: Why?

One of the things that sticks in my craw is Secretary of State Clinton's remark: "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans," Clinton said. "What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?"

To those that died and those that know the truth, it matters a great deal. To you, I guess it just does not matter what happened there, or if it could have been prevented, or even if it could have been aided by assistance that may have saved the day. What difference indeed... This should not be a political battle, the reason that is has become one is because of the many misleading statements and then the coverup. Without a problem to hide there should not be a need for a coverup.

RS "still hanging on to Benghazi, huh"? Really? That comment is rght up there with Jay Carney's comment “Benghazi happened a long time ago.” Are these the comments we are suppose to relay to the families, friends and loved ones of the 4 Americans murdered in Benghazi as they too are "still hanging on" and waiting for answers as well. Hey forget about, give it up, it happened a long time ago. Really?

from article Jeers: "but may we suggest those who make something go viral pick a news story that gives our area the positive recognition it deserves?" Front page of today's leader another story pertaining to the the "turf war". I thought we wanted to focus on positive recognition?

Ron it happened September 11th 2012... enough time has passed to investigate. Enough time has passed to be able to straighten out the MISLEADING statements that the WHITE HOUSE reported and backed up and then covered up... there has even been enough time to hunt down the people responsible for this attack. It is time to get the truth out and get some JUSTICE for the Americans that lost their lives while representing the USA in a volatile area. There was no excuse for the way this was handled... except Obamas re-election!

So RS why do YOU believe that I might condone any violence against anyone in the USA? WHy would you insinuate that I support any terror whatsoever anyplace in the entire world? I believe that your name calling and poor comprehension skills are catching up with your ability to be a reasonable or intelligent poster to any topic whatsoever...

Buried in their report (down in paragraph eight) CBS reported, “Throughout the night, sources say Americans on the ground in Libya at times felt helpless and abandoned… But they were told immediate help wasn’t available.” But, counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help.

SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE WHAT FOX HAS BEEN REPORTING ALL ALONG!!!

drugsrus, I wasn't hoping the Bostom bomber was anything but found and brought to justice. Politics has no place in justice.

ToT: Hey, girl! The FBI claims to have stopped an alleged terror attack, this time in Minnesota. The suspects name, Buford Rogers, doesn't sound very 'arabic' to me, so I doubt you'll care to say anything.

ToT, When are you going to grow up. Rice waqs only telling what she had been given to her by the intelligence people. Can you prove that she knew anything more at that time? Blaming her is like the fools in the media asking the police what happened and what caused it 10 seconds after it happened they don't know unti they complete their investigation that in some cases my take several hours or even days.

Jeers to Misleading and strong arming!! So apparently even centrist democrats are jumping off the Obama express! President Barack Obama bluntly told Sen. John McCain and other Republicans to lay off their attacks against U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice over the Benghazi assault, telling lawmakers that if they go after her "then you have a problem with me." Remember that line as they will be exposed this week by testimony about the Benghazi attack. The truth is about to be known. Hang on it is going to be a bumpy ride for you Clinton & Obama lovers!

How can you be off topic? We are having a discussion. As we communicate it invokes a thought that turns the conversation. You reply to the swayed conversation and it promotes more thought that may again alter the idea that began the discussion. But if logical thought turned the direction and leads to new ideas isn't that simply a progression of the original topic? Like the degrees of separation people have, might there also be a connection between the thoughts?

Portnoy...they may wear them on their days off. and haven't you heard? People can have a source of (unreported)income and collect full benefits at the same time up until the point it is revealed that tens of thousands of dollars have been wrongfully handed out. Unfortunately the taxpayers never see any type of restitution. Sorry, totally off topic, but I absoulutely despise thieves and cheaters a/k/a system abusers!

"The charges surrounding the "turf war" between two local ice cream vendors put those of us who live here in an unwelcome light." News flash...the "turf war" story didn't create the "unwelcome light" it's there for a while hanging out on porches, strolling up and down the streets with 4,5,6 kids when the rest of us our working, and the two arrested are just a product of the area.
