Hillary has accepted full responsibility for failing to provide the requested additional security for the US embassy in Libya. She has obviously done this to take the heat off Obama. The ambassador has died due to this negligence. She should resign immediately, but has not. WTF????

    You seem to be confused about the concept of ownership. Kids do that-take a thing in a house and say mine. Doesn't make it theirs.

    You bring up one aspect and the moment somebody brings up a counter to your silly point, delve into fits about thread going off topic . I know can't argue-so resort to the same old , same old right wing tactic.

    nice misdirection...

    no, we want hillary to go because on 9/11 an embassy in a semi-hostile country requested additional security and they were denied by hillary, as she has accepted full responsibility, and they were not evacuated, and eventually killed.

    gbenson says

    But you want Hillary to go because the people under her (the security experts) failed to anticipate a coordinated attack that we had no prior information about.

    the topic is about the syrian embassy fuckup.
    not about bush, clinton, WWI or WWII...
    what's so hard about discussing the merits of the actions on that date?

    you know, unique incidents can be discussed without resorting to ill-fitting comparisons to long-past events.

    But I understand your need to muddy the waters with these historical events, because there is no defensible position for the Syrian incident.

    I understand your need to take one event that fits your narrative in total isolation of all reality and hold it up and disect it till the cows come home.

    But life is a continuum. It does not start and end with one event, despite your beleif that it does.

    There was likely both an intelligence failure and related to that a security failure. When the investigation is completed and if it shows that there was a warning that was ignored and that Clinton ignored it or inadequately prepared for it, yes she should resign. That is very very unlikely There are many layers below Clinton that deal with security matters, these people are not usually political appointees but career State Dept. people. Yes the buck stops at the top but without direct involvement there will be no direct consequence. Never (that I can remember) has that happened before and it will not happen now.

    Clinton will be gone after Jan anyway, she will not serve another term as Secretary of State regardless of the outcome of the election. She and Bill clearly want Obama to win. If she decides to run for POTUS it is normally easier if the position is open rather than running against an incumbent.

    That is not a 'no.' It is a bullshit false insinuation that someone cannot post under multiple accounts, masquerading as an answer.

    Positing that you are Shrek: you posted surely thousands of comments here. What does it say about them, that you refuse to acknowledge your patrimony for those public thoughts? That you first ignore and then dodge when someone asks if you're the real father.

    What does that say about you? Your intellectual honesty? Your integrity? Your self-respect?

    I said it before: it always seems to be the folks around here who are ostensibly about personal responsibility, who slough off an identity like a snake shedding its skin. The problem is that it does no good. When you shed only the skin, you leave the core unimproved. That core: intellectual, moral --is you. You can post a million posts, under a thousand names, and they will all, ultimately, become more bastard orphans of your mind. You will never say anything that you will, in the long run, be proud to call your own.

    One problem, your link goes back to 2011... here is a quote from the link:

    ......."The scope of the proposed House cuts is massive," Clinton told reporters at a Capitol news conference after attending a luncheon meeting with House Speaker John Boehner."

    The key word there is "PROPOSED", Hillary was talking about proposed cuts, not ACTUAL cuts...

    Do you have any proof that these cuts were put in force???

    "In the 2011 continuing resolution, Congress, at the insistence of the House of Representatives, slashed the president’s request for embassy security and construction and forced another cut in fiscal year 2012. Altogether Congress has eliminated $296 million from embassy security and construction in the last two years with additional cuts in other State Department security accounts."

    Who brought up partisan politics?
    We are talking about a specific occurance.
    Try to stay on topic and be less biased.

    So then at the very least by your thinking this should have been another instance of Democrats cleaning up a republican mess.

    Did you call for Bush to resign after 9/11? How about Rice?

    Lemme guess. NO!!!!!!!

    From Wiki:

    Bin Ladin Determined To Strike in US was the President's Daily Brief prepared by the Central Intelligence Agency and given to U.S. President George W. Bush on August 6, 2001. The brief warned of terrorism threats from Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda 36 days before the September 11, 2001 attacks.

    My guess is that there wasn't a single Republican in the world calling for Rice's or Bush's head. Y'all are hypocrites.

    The mayor of NYC did not ask for more federal security support.
    The attack on the twin towers was not fully anticipated.
    It is impossible for the federal government to cover all possible targets in the USA

    The Libyan embassy did ask for more security.
    Therefore, the attack on the embassy was anticipated.
    It is possible for the federal government to add security, or remove personnel from dangerous situations abroad.

    Your comparison does not hold water.

    You're right. It doesn't hold water. There is no comparison between the death of four Americans and the death of 3000 just after Bush finished a month long vacation in the first year of his first term by a known enemy who had attacked us before. He was briefed that Bin Laden was a serious threat and to date NOT ONE SINGLE ACTION TO PROTECT THIS COUNTRY BY BUSH PRIOR TO 9/11 HAS EVER BEEN DOCUMENTED! In fact if I remember correctly Bush downgraded the threat.

    Yes I think I do remember correctly:

    During the entire month of August, President Bush was on vacation at his ranch in Texas — which tied with one of Richard Nixon’s as the longest vacation ever taken by a president. CIA Director George Tenet has said he didn’t speak to Bush once that month, describing the president as being “on leave.” Bush did not hold a Principals’ meeting on terrorism until September 4, 2001, having downgraded the meetings to a deputies’ meeting, which then-counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke has repeatedly said slowed down anti-Bin Laden efforts “enormously, by months.”

    One was an opportunistic strike by unknown attackers. The other was a well planned conspiracy that might have been avoided if someone at the Bush administration just made a call to the airport.

    Bush should have been impeached and Rice should have been thrown out of office in shame (by your standards, not mine) Clinton's hindsight error in judgement pales by comparison and the only reason you can't see it is that you're a pseudo-independent Republican hack.

    Calling for Clinton to resign. What a fucking joke. The hypocrisy is stunning.

    It has since come out that the people at the CIA were getting really pissed because they kept warning the Bush admin that something was going on and kept getting rebuffed. When some of the CIA execs started to press the issue to be heard, the Bushies asked them to be 'reassigned' or excluded from meetings.

    I never got the connection to Obama. It makes no sense that with all that is going on in the world, that he should have been watching only the embassy in Benghazi.

    If you recall there were protests across North Africa, and every one was asking for added security. I have never seen that as a part of the reporting, but hey, it makes no difference.
