“Its called communists in office leveling the playing field.”
They’re getting revenge for Reagan winning the Cold War.
Isakoff on killing Americans with drones - plays John Brennan sound bite - only teakes actions to save lives. (???)
Katty Kay - BBC - we are turning large numbers in Pakistan, Yemen against us.
Gregory asks what are the limits of drone technology - could we use drones to capture and kill Dorner in California? (oh, go for it, obama)
Isakoff - obama has incentive to do this. The total number of Americans killed under obama is three - same as number of terrorists who were waterboarded. (what the heck is he implying????)
They are all morons on this issue, IMO. Don’t they realize there are plenty of people on the left (their audience), who actually are TOTALLY against this policy.
As it turns out your daughter was right and the teachers were wrong. This is exactly how they work. They punish anyone who goes against consensus so the other kids will toe the line if they want good grades. It is done all the way to the PHD level and nobody challenges the theories they want promoted. Pure Junk science to promote an agenda.
Pray for America
Benghazi appears to have been very well played,politically, and off the cuff as well.
In the end should any "journalist" ever get to the bottom and discover (which is not very likely) no one was home in dc and nothing makes sense.
the regime has the ultimate excuse. It was all CIA's fault.I can hear it now,:
We had so many problems with Petraeus we had to get rid of him and replace him with a card carrying muslim, John Brennan. Who we can manipulate better than Petraeus.
Now its possible they may not explain things exactly like that but it may well become the ultimate excuse for Benghazi.IT was all CIA's fault.
and then never ever have to explain anything.
Tell me who we are up against?
Well, actually I did the former (but for cardiovascular purposes)...Regarding the second point...c'mon read the title of this thread, we focus on compounded misery.
But thanks, my headache has left me, probably as a result of the relaxing friendly banter, here, with my buds.
Correct,we have a long way to go.
Who needs TWC???
Downton Abbey - 2 hour episode?? YAY! I always forget and miss it, but finally remember by Monday night (replay)
Yep,they keep kicking our political asses over and over.
Its scary whatever political advantage they have. We better counter it and soon.
Well in that case, at all costs, stay away from RATs.
The only help came from Tripoli and they were kept at the Benghazi airport for over four hours before being allowed to proceed to the Mission. It should be noted that the six man security team from Tripoli included Glen Doherty. Here is the timeline put out by the Pentagon. I wish the questioners had used it to get more specifics from Panetta and Dempsey. It appears that DOD was doing something in response prior to the last attack, but it was mostly in the form of alerts--no movement.
September 11 (Events are listed using the time in Benghazi)
9:42 p.m. -- Armed men begin their assault on the U.S. Consulate.
9:59 p.m. -- A surveillance drone is directed to fly over the U.S. compound, but it is unarmed.
10:32 p.m. -- The Office of the Secretary Defense and the Joint Staff are notified of the attack by the National Military Command Center at the Pentagon. "The information is quickly passed to Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey."
11 p.m. -- Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey meet with President Obama at the White House where they discuss the unfolding situation and how to respond. The meeting had been previously scheduled.
11:10 p.m. -- The surveillance drone arrives over the Benghazi facility.
11:30 p.m. -- All surviving U.S. personnel are evacuated from the consulate. U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and State Department computer expert Sean Smith were killed in the initial assault.
Midnight to 2 a.m. -- Panetta and other senior leaders discuss possible options for further violence if it were to break out. Panetta gives verbal orders for Marine anti-terrorist teams from Rota, Spain, to prepare to deploy to Tripoli and Benghazi. Panetta also orders a special operations force team training in Croatia and an additional special operations force team in the United States to prepare to deploy to a staging base in southern Italy.
1:30 a.m. -- A six-man security team from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli arrives in Benghazi.
2:39 a.m. to 2:53 a.m. -- The National Military Command Center gives formal authorization for the deployment of the two special operations force teams from Croatia and the United States.
5:15 a.m. -- Attackers launch assault on a second U.S. facility in Benghazi. Two former U.S. Navy SEALs acting as security contractors are killed. They are identified as Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
6:05 a.m. -- A C-17 aircraft in Germany is told to prepare to deploy to Libya to evacuate the consulate personnel.
7:40 a.m. -- The first wave of Americans are evacuated to Tripoli via airplane.
10 a.m. -- A second group, including those killed in the attack, are flown to Tripoli.
2:15 p.m. -- The C-17 departs from Germany for the flight to Tripoli.
7:17 p.m. -- The C-17 leaves Tripoli with the American consulate personnel and the bodies of Stevens, Smith, Woods and Doherty.
7:57 p.m. -- The U.S. special operations force team based in Croatia arrives at a staging base in Italy.
8:56 p.m. -- One of the Marine anti-terrorist teams from Spain arrives in Tripoli.
9:28 p.m. -- The U.S.-based special operations force team arrives at its staging base in Italy.
What I find most shocking is that the military was not sent into Benghazi to secure both compounds on September 12. Panetta admitted during the hearings that they had the capability to do this but the request never came. It took 23 days for us to enter the compounds.
I have no doubt that the primary mission of the facility in Benghazi was intelligence and other activities. I don't buy any of the conspiracy theories that this was a hit on Stevens or that it was planned to use Stevens as a hostage to release the blind sheik. We could have been using it to funnel guns to the revolutionary forces in Syria. But if this facility was deemed so important to our national security interests, we should have provided the security to protect our personnel.
Just 29% more to Go!
Not bad, given that Marxist’s unconscionable economy, and he’s wrecking it on purpose. It’s all part of the Communist plan, as explained in “The Naked Communist,” which I read as a school girl.
“Tell me who we are up against? “
The dynamic Duo...
EVIL & INCOMPETENCE
( we are so screwed and the Reupblicans don’t even get it.)
I work in the SPED dept. of our local Jr Hi, several years ago I helped a young man write a report on GW. He chose to be against it. I was fearful that his grade would be impacted by his stance. But to my great surprize, after putting together a terrific report, he earned an A and a Blue Ribbon at our county fair.
Maybe this is due to what part of the country I live in and it was just Jr Hi.
If we’re going to do that....we’ve got to ignore people like Karl Rove
You can never tell by individual instances, but you said the work was hard to dismiss and it could have been obvious. You wouldn’t have been surprised if he was punished however. We have all seen that. I got it on a paper I wrote on the Yalta agreement from an econ professor.
Pray for America
Perhaps you are right...
