The live feed from the drones above Benghazi allowed the Military, CIA, White House, FBI,
Dept of State ... to watch in real time the Islamic planned attack for 7 to 8 hours.

America had airplanes, response teams ... Air Force minutes away in Italy , Marines and air
assets with the US Navy, etc. Who repeatedly ordered the military to stand down ?

The CIA ordered the stand down because the Ambassador was about to blow the whistle on its gun
running operation to the Syrian rebels.

And the reason it was so important that not come out, by the way, so important that it was worth
this kind of world class screw up, is because the rebels in Syria are the extremists. Assad is a

If it came out that the rebels we are backing were the extremists, it would break the trance the
media has created that somehow the US Government wants the same thing the American people

What we can’t know, is that the US Government is aiding and abetting the slaughter of people that
should be our friends.  We’re not supposed to figure that out until after they confiscate the guns. 

Unfortunately, I think the cat might be out of the bag.

A terrorist on evey street in most 3rd world coutries. Face it, poverty, lack of education, poor
living conditions, way too many mouths to feed, disease, etc…..finding some or a lot of men
willing to cause trouble….is not hard to find….promise them a MILK COW or a GOAT & you got
a mob of men with modern weapons….willing to leave their shaggy tent & cow dung.

And that folks is the normal for a long time I think.

You can tell the publican members get all their info from Fix News lies and fabrication by the
moronic questions they asked and issues they pursued that went no where. All they
acomplished at the hearings was succesfully launch the HILLARY 2016 campaign. She was
heads above them in intelligience and the abillity to tackle the tough issues…

This old washed up Water Buffalo has been an absolute disaster. Time to put her out to pasture. Slick
Willie’s ’ What ‘is’, is and her ‘I can’t Recall’  will define their places in the Narcissistic Hall of Fame!

In many ways, Clinton exemplifies all that is wrong with American -both- Politics
and Society:  Corruption. Deception.  Unaccoutability.  Immorality.  Nepotism.

Her diversionary false-bravado before Congress, was vintage “Waco Willie”.
Ironically, her single, most-important accomplishment was who she married.
Professionally, much of her actions were shadowed in suspicion.
Yet, the Gloria Steinem crowd hail her - and her highly-ambiguous lifestyle.
Complete with an assistant who family has ties to the Muslim Brother.

Hmm, well, Hillary didn’t seem to know much, now did she?  didn’t see any cables?  No requests for
increased security?  Oh no!  Was her paper shredder marked “In-Box” again?  Maybe it was the bonk
on the head?  her question - ‘what does it matter (now)???  Well ya see Hillary - people who expected
you, or your boss King Obama, to do something useful, were ignored.  Now they’re dead, and you’re
asking “what does it matter?”  Hey, Hillary - why not take a trip to Iran or Syria maybe?

It won’t be the first time or the last time ( most of the flight schools in Phoenix knew some thing was up with them
fellows that flew into the towers in New York ) we don’t know the truth.  O ya Georgie Bush jr was in charge.

I finished 100 Years of Solitude in my empty high school art room, and the top of my head came off, just like Emily Dickinson said.
