so if the pres. and his henchmen/women didn't care about the Americans in Benghazi getting killed by terrorists, what chance does the average American Citizen have when they decide to let millions of us be killed for them to stay in power? WWIII anyone? ...the face of evil is plan to see.. Mrs. Clinton and Obamas To say the repubs are just making this political is stupid when these two did all their lies for political gain.

Victoria Nuland was appointed by and worked under Dickhead Cheney. Intentional sabotage? When does the trail start for bush lying about WMD in Iraq? I'm with Hillary on this one. What does it matter what was said? Lets fix the problem.

So when it comes to getting answers for loved ones of the four American diplomats killed in Benghazi, the Republican consensus is yes it's important, and the Democrit consensus is “at this point what difference does it make?”

Who says there isn’t consensus in America today? Now we have two consensuses.

Wvcoffee “...bush lying about WMD in Iraq? I'm with Hillary on this one. What does it matter what was said?”

Are you with Hillary on the existence of WMDs, or on the Benghazi coverup? And regarding “bush lying about WMD” are you saying “what does it matter what was said?” Progressives can pack so much irony in so few words. LOL

Yes, I agree w/ Hillary as well!

“In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members, though there is apparently no evidence of his involvement in the terrible events of September 11, 2001. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Should he succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security landscape of the Middle East, which as we know all too well affects American security.” — Hillary Clinton, October 10, 2002"

I think Hillary and “bush” were both wrong. The difference is that when “bush lied people died,” but when Hillary lied “at this point what difference does it make?”

"What does it matter what was said?"

It matters because an administration LIED to the American people for the sake of election year politics! If Bush had done the same thing Liberals would be screaming impeachment!!

So your entire argument is saying 'act of terror' VS 'terrorist attack'. Hillary never said anyone lied. Get your facts straight Slayingnothing. Bush lied.

Wvcoffee, you need to improve your reading skills. I didn’t say Hillary said anyone lied. I said Hillary lied. But, as Hillary says, “at this point what difference does it make?” Let’s just move on, dot org. Tell the families of those Americans she left to die in Benghazi, and then repeatedly lied and obfuscated about why, that there are more important things to investigate now. Like tax returns of tea partiers.

F*** Hillary lying, the issue here is we had a special forces team READY TO RESCUE our people and they were ORDERED TO STAND DOWN and let our people be KILLED.

WHO GAVE THE ORDER? Do you think it it was low level commanding officer?

What happened to "No MAN LEFT BEHIND"?

The new motto from THIS administration is "COVER OBama's BEHIND!"

Right, whgfailing. The evil genius bush even fooled your Secretary of State Clinton, your Vice President Biden, your progressive icons Gore, Kennedy Kerry, Byrd, Rockefeller, Feinstein, Waxman Allbright, ... Bush even fooled President Clinton before Bush was President. I think he used Halliburton’s mind control ray. Tighten those tin foil hats, libbies. LOL

Tighten your seatbelts, too, Benghazi Berry and Hypocrite Hillary. The road's is going to get rough for you. Even the liberal press is finally talking about Benghazi now.

This is going nowhere and everyone knows it. The outrage and accusations from the right wing extremists is pure BS. When will the investigations begin on the 13 Embassy's that were attacked under the Bush administration? 96 people were killed in those attacks on our embassy's. Where's the outrage on those killings? Pure political BS...that's why this issue is going nowhere and everyone knows it...

Hoopie, Media Matters claims "But Seven U.S. Embassies And Consulates Were Attacked Under George W. Bush", but why worry about accuracy. No Ambassadors were killed under Bush and the Bush Admin didn't lie to the American people for election year face saving purposes!

And reading thru the Media Matters article (Google "Krauthammer Whitewashes Bush's History To Bash Obama Over Embassy Attack"), it appears NO Americans were killed in the "attacks"! One of which was at an empty building!! From the Media Matters article, "2007: Grenade Launched Into U.S. Embassy In Athens. From The New York Times:

An antitank grenade was fired into the heavily fortified American Embassy here just before dawn today. The building was empty, but the attack underscored deep anti-American sentiment here and revived fears of a new round of homegrown terror."

Maybe people should research their handed down talking points a little more!!

Hoopie was undoubtedly referencing a Huffington Post blog that did list the death of diplomat David Foy. But I didn't read anything about the Bush admin lying about the source of the attack!

The author of the article also didn't mention help or assistance being denied in any of the listed attacks.

ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited.... White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department. WH Press Secretary Carney Nov 28,2012: “The White House and the State Department have made clear that the single adjustment that was made to those talking points by either of those two institutions were changing the word ‘consulate’ to ‘diplomatic facility’ because ‘consulate’ was inaccurate.”

This was a lie.

CBS: Hicks told investigators that SOCAFRICA cmder Lt. Col. Gibson & his team were on their way to board a C-130 from Tripoli for Benghazi....prior to an attack on a second U.S. compound “when [Col. Gibson] got a phone call from SOCAFRICA which said, ‘you can’t go now.....you don’t have the authority to go now.’ And so they missed the flight… They were told not to board the flight, so they missed it.” The Obama Administration has said everything was done that could have been done to help the Americans under attack in Benghazi.

Get off of it, text messenger whgflailing:

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line." --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear.

We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program." --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998
