I said quite a long time ago that it wouldn't matter if these investigations cleared the administration and the SD of any wrongdoing. The Right Wing conspiracy has been created, refined and set in to the minds of the brainwashed.

They desire her to be guilty of something and through that conspiracy, they will twist and weasel around the facts to create and justify guilt in their own minds.



So you're denying they lied and blamed a youtube video?

Probably nothing to see here.

Trey Gowdy had that whole Benghazi hearing to skewer Hillary. Either she's clean as a whistle on Benghazi or the Republicans are more inept than the democrats. It's one or the other guys. Pick it.

Let's assume they did lie.

Does that overshadow the fact that everything the Right Wing has been accusing her and the administration of since 2012 is also a lie?

I hate the fact that Hillary and Obama may have lied. Do you hate the fact that the GOP and the Right Wing lied to you/us as well?

Its clear that the administration didnt want a black spot on its legacy and a losing debate point in the 2012 election.

She calls it a terrorist attack in an email to her daughter, yet tells the public its the fault of a video.
At the very least she does not deserve consideration for the highest office.

Also, is the video maker still locked up? And on what crime exactly?


No need for damage control. The report appears to not be the smoking gun ya'll had hoped for.

And that is why you are focusing on us, personally, instead of the report.



Well the comitee was asked to investigate Benghazi, not Clinton. The fact the you all are pointing out " whoops no smoking gun in Clinton's hand" is telling.


The Right Wing has made this about Hillary the entire time. That is why we have been hearing the same lines against her since this happened.

Are you going to deny that the Right Wing nut wanted to use Benghazi to fry Hillary?


Are you going to deny that lack of action is culpability?


Not when it's already been known that there was not much, if anything, they could have done.



They didn't even try.

They went and had a 3 hr meeting about how to spin the attack.

Gowdy's committee interviewed people that were actually there.

The Tripoli people couldn't get permission to go to Benghazi, they didn't have the diplomatic licence to go.

They had to change out of their uniforms several times!

Who's red tape is that!? Hillary's!

She only needed to make 1 call to say let them go.

NO assets were deployed! WTF?!

Hillary should fry for that.

Perhaps Obama should have just stood under a banner on a ship and claimed "Mission Accomplished."


He did that already.

Obama: 'Global War on Terror' Is Over

Of course some people didn't get the memo in Brussels,Paris,Sydney,Fort Hood,San Bernadino,Boston, and Orlando, and todays news Istanbul.

Are you saying they were wrong in not violating the sovereignty of a foreign nation?



Who's red tape is that!? Hillary's!


Really? Hillary wrote the rules of engagement in cases such as this?



Hillary should fry for that.


Apparently, the GOP and the Benghazi investigators disagree.

Bottom line, Hillary refused security. Hillary told her inner circle that a terrorist attack took place. Publicly Hillary blamed the first amendment for that attack where our people were killed. Hillary is a criminal worse than Nixon..

There still isn't enough evidence from the inquiry to bring charges up on anyone amirite?

So when is their next investigation set to start up? BTW how many does this make?

Where are the Checks and Balances in the State Department ? Is the Office Able to make Decisions on their Own concerning Foreign Affairs , or do they in Reality , just do as they are Told by the POTUS ? It sounds to me that the U.S. Federal Government is in Dire need of Reorganization for the Sake of the People , and our Future . .

Who was in charge when this event happened?
This was a result of Obamas foreign policy was it not?
Foreign policy that was to be executed by the administrations chief foreign policy adviser, the Secretary of State.

So who else would be responsible for this event?


Who would be responsible for the "event?"

How about the Islamic militants who attacked the compound in Benghazi?

What you're saying is no different than saying that Bush 43 was responsible for the various attacks on embassies/missions during his presidency or 9/11 or that Roosevelt was responsible for Pearl Harbor instead of the Japanese.



Some say FDR knew about the attack, just like bush did.

Cairo had already happened, other places too.

obama and hillary had no clue what was coming? lololol!! Sad either way.

But guess what happened during and after both attacks?

That's right, forces were mobilized and the truth was told.

In matters of foreign interaction and military action, the SD cannot do as they please. And I am glad they cannot. There are other people involved that must make decisions.

If our system was designed to react impulsively, we would have a lot more blood on our hands and many more investigations to sort through.

Spin this however you like.

What you can't spin is that our foreign policy was such a fail ; Commander in chief and Secretary of State both knew and had access to info that our Ambassador was in a dangerous situation, yet failed to even implement a proper evacuation strategy.

That kind of piss poor judgement is not fit for further service.

Oooo ... "Hillary is like Cookie Monster."

You should send that one in to Trump ... that sounds like him.



Can you prove that Hillary is not politically motivated in anything she does? I'll wait.


On the contrary, as a politician, she's very likely motivated by politics in everything she does.

Nine investigations have proven that there is NOTHING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE IN BENGHAZI.

But, keep harping on it... you're just boosting her poll numbers.



False!!

NOTHING WAS DONE, before, during and after the attack!

O thought he could be sly by keeping the USA on the down low but had 2 doz CIA a mile away.

No extraction plans, no diplomatic immunity, no defences, it was a dereliction of duty by hillary and obama.

Lie about the video, yeah, that's the ticket!

"we can let 4 people die in benghazi and tell the american people and the victims families that it was a video and they will still love us"

Which was for those of us that have been paying attention was:

Ignoring it and calling it something else, and blame.

For the past 8 years US foreign policy has been an EPIC fail.

Terrorism is alive and well, and bigger, and badder then ever.

That has spread across the globe in grand fashion.

I Guess our " System " Today Only allows the Office of the POTUS " to React Impulsively " when it comes to the Lives of American Citizens Abroad .

You forget the deliberate creation of a special status for the Benghazi installation to allow them to skirt the usual security regs possibly leaving it even more vulnerable than it would otherwise be.

What would you suggest?

Surely you have an in-depth policy suggestion when it comes to our interactions on another sovereign nations soil.

Please share.

Well they called a press conference.

They were right there. The cameras were already rolling, and you cannot be telling me that there were not some VERY right wing media people there waiting to hang Clinton like a piñata, and swing like they were at the batting cages later. If one network had failed to carry it, you can bet your last shiny dollar that someone in that room would have been transmitting live till the end of the show.

Your argument seems to have only a little less weight than the report itself, if what we know of its contents so far are anything to go by.



They were asked to investigate what happened in Benghazi, NOT hillary clinton.

The admin LIED to the american people.

They did nothing to help at all.

For consideration:

Perhaps they lied because the Ambassador and the others were part of a CIA gun-running operation that funneled arms to the Syrian rebels fighting to take out Assad and got caught by the local opposition.

Forgive me if I jump to conspiracy-mode, but it appears that Stevens and the rest knew what they were doing, were trying to affect outcomes in Syria and Egypt and paid for it with their lives.

Now can the President and the SoS be open and honest about such things if it was a classified action?

Probably not. That would be a violation of their security clearance.

We all know how we dislike people violating security clearances...
