    Jets could have gotten "there", although air strikes on the embassy would have been just as deadly for embassy staff as it would have been for the attackers.
    Not necessarily. Ever watched those videos with the laser guided bombs that correctly target the door of a bunker?

    They asked for help from congress for more security and were denied it. At the time of the attack they asked for help and none was sent as there was no help that could have been there in time to be of any help, although I agree, they should have sent help at least for show.

    I agree, attacks on diplomatic interests should be taken seriously, Benghazi should be taken just as seriously as any of the 64 attacks on diplomatic interests that occurred under Bush (for which there were 3 investigations, there have already been more than 3 investigations of Benghazi alone).

    Any guilty of wrongdoing in any of the scandals should be punished and removed from their job if necessary, the question is who's guilty and of what. I think in general there should be more oversight of in these situations, so long as it's oversight and not political posturing.
    This...so out of balance, so obviously a hounding of this black president, but the people engaged in the ridiculously over the top pursuit are blind to it...and their followers equally as blind, hanging on the glimmer of hope that there was some horrible secret and conspiracy to cover up. Where was this same conservative interest in the well being of our diplomats during the Bush administration...you remember, the administration that blatantly lied to the world about WMD.?.

    Can we focus on the now and not dig up the past? It reminds me of childhood . . . you get caught doing something wrong and the first thing you say is "But Tommy did it!".

    Even in marriage counseling, you are warned to stop bringing up past experiences in regards to present problems.

    These issues should be judged by their own merit .. .or lack thereof.

    I think they are all very serious and need more investigation. And that has nothing to do with the Prez being black. I'm so very weary of that argument.

    Some might also argue it is the protection of this black president.....because he's black, not because he's not wrong.

    And to think that a white President was impeached for lying about sex........

    exactly...the things that conservative legislators find important...liberals did NOT impeach the president and his cronies for lying to get us into 2 expensive wars...although they should be tried and convicted for their crimes.

    IRS head resigns amid scandal, President Obama announces
    By ASSOCIATED PRESS
    Posted May 15, 2013

    President Barack Obama on Wednesday announced the resignation of the top official at the Internal Revenue Service following a controversy over the agency's targeting of conservative political groups. ...

    ... Before announcing the resignation of Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, Obama met at the White House with top officials from the Treasury Department, which oversees the IRS. The White House scheduled the meeting a day after the release of an inspector general report that showed ineffective management at the IRS allowed agents to improperly target tea party groups for more than 18 months.

    Miller became acting commissioner in November, after Commissioner Douglas Shulman completed his five-year term. Shulman had been appointed by President George W. Bush. ...

    Be honest, Chaney is the one whose memory was taking many back to those dark days that we will be paying for for generations to come. We can not ignore this anymore than you can ignore ex-husbands when one of the results of the marriage is a child.

    Chaney could think of nothing worse? How about 9-11? how about blatant lying about WMD. Why sweep it under the rug when he brings it up? If he were accurate, or even close... To conveniently forget that the president was on a month vacation when all of the warnings were given prior to 9-11.

    Don't blame people for discussing what happened in the past. Those who forget the past are bound to repeat it. Bush lost 60+ embassy employees. Obama has lost 4. He has learned and has done better.

    Benghazi is all about Hillary Clinton in case she dares make a run for President in 2016. None of the people "outraged" about it care two hoots about it. Where were you all complaining about the sixty or so US embassy employees Bush lost? Oh that's right, your media didn't tell you to be outraged about it, so you weren't.

    The health care law is a trainwreck because it still involves private insurance.

    I dunno, I might investigate people who thought they were Taxed Enough Already going for tax exempt status................however if it was improperly done it was improperly done.

    Who is Chaney?
    Sorry- Was not thinking of him more than necessary VP Cheney. Who shot his friend in the face, hid in a bunker for months as he manipulated the former POTUS. Worse actor than Lon Chaney.

    Sorry, got the spelling of the monster actors missed up.
