Paducah, Ky. — Senator Rand Paul criticized Hillary Clinton over her handling of the 2012 Benghazi attack again today, saying it was “inexcusable” she hadn’t read the State Department cables requesting more security.

“I asked Hillary Clinton a point-blank question: Did you read the cables from Benghazi?” Paul said during a Q7A after a speech he gave at the Rotary Club in Paducah. “And she said she was too busy, she didn’t have time to. That’s inexcusable.”

“I continue to think that what was going on in Benghazi, what they were trying to cover up, was a gun-running operation into Syria,” Paul said.

Keep it up, Rand Paul! If Romney and the other 'pubs were serious about being the opposition, they never would've backed off from this discussion before the election.

I suspect that the "wimp" factor in backing off on foreign affairs cost Romney votes.

It’s easier for HiLiary to say that she hadn’t read the cables rather than admitting that she read them and failed to act.

Give her hell senator. She’s responsible for the loss of these 4 good men. The media sure won’t hold her accountable.

We all know by now that Evita has a very selective memory... she recalls only what it benefits her to recall.

Let’s see ...

Frist there was the gun running program into Mexico called “Fast and Furious”.

Then there was a gun running program being run out of Tampa, FL.

Now there is a gun running program being run out of Benghazi.

Now I have to wonder what other gun running programs that are out there that haven’t made the news, yet.

Going back to Billy Boy Clinton's time, I remember Hitlary being asked some questions (I don't recall the exact incident, may have been about “travel agents”) and her pat answer at that time (still being used today) was “I don't recall”. For someone who has such a poor memory and doesn't have time to read memo's or be advised of a pending crisis in Benghazi, is that someone who the American people want as their next president? Probably!

MILITARY.COM reported that US Pentagon officials declined to give specifics on conversations between DOD's Chuck Hagel and Egyptian Gen al-Sisi....WRT the current Egyptian crisis.

Although the officials would not discuss the specifics of the military- to-military talks, the U.S. would need Gen al-Sisi's approval to move through Egyptian air space if Washington decided to send Marines to aid in the evacuation of U.S. personnel.

READY TO GO About 550 Marines and their tilt-rotor MV-22 Osprey aircraft are at bases in Spain and Italy on standby if they are needed. A Navy Amphibious Ready Group with 4,000 Marines and sailors aboard, led by the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, was also in the region following completion of the Eager Lion training exercises in Jordan.

=============================================

AIN'T KARMA A *ITCH, HILLARY?...... the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, IS in the region. We were lied to----we were told it was not available to help endangered Americans in Benghazi.

Why not ask your govt? (snix)

EXHIBIT ONE

Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development;

Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council;

Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference;

Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC);

Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA);

Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

=============================================

EXHIBIT TWO

WASHINGTON (AP) — A DHS employee operates a racist website predicting and advocating a race war. Ayo Kimathi, acquisitions officer for ICE, operates War on the Horizon, which includes descriptions of an "unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race." Kimathi is black. describes the group as "a Haitianist organization created for the purpose of preparing black people worldwide for an unavoidable, inevitable clash with the white race.....Many of the postings are signed with the phrase, "We'll see you on the battlefield."

The inflammatory website has since been taken, but the Facebook page is still active (linked at NY Post web site)..... it was not immediately clear whether they cross the legal threshold into unprotected hate speech...the posts may not violate DHS policies if Kimathi does not curate the website at work or espouse these ideologies in govt offices. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups, first reported on Kimathi on Wednesday.

According to the ICE acquisitions website, Kimathi is a small business specialist responsible for purchasing handcuffs, guns and other l/e equipment and services.

Forgive the language, just reporting facts...and she wants to be the next president...

Surely the people of the United States can easily do better than this.

Exactly. He has delegated ALL of his power ON PURPOSE. He literally cannot be held accountable for any of what is going on because he has decided to vote PRESENT on the job of President of the United States of America. How convenient! And stupid LIVs re-elected this moron!
