    Jake Tapper's got the goods.... again. Seems some days he's the last honest journalist in Washington.

    Even after all the incidents leading up to the attack on 9/11, they expected these guy to travel commercial. As we read through the article, it's not like they hadn't already the DC-3 there. It was pulled by the State Dept. when commercial travel resumed. What might this have meant on that fateful night? Would it have been possible for these guys to escape? Who knows? They're too busy "investigating" themselves to actually answer any questions.

    What is more telling to me is not so much that they pulled the plane, but the fact that they had a 16 member security force that was ALSO pulled. There were 16 special forces members that were pulled out in August. Why?

    Dunno. One thing's for sure though, if we ever get a straight answer at all... it's going to be after the election. :eusa_sick:

    Him and who else? :lol: It's pretty crowded under that bus, but if he thinks she's going meekly, he can wish in one hand and shit in the other. An "accidental" open mic + Bill Clinton would cost him 10 points in the polls overnight. And who knows?... Bill doesn't like him much, he might do it just for giggles.

    Obama sacrificed the Libyan Embassy.

    You know, honestly in my more cynical moments, I have to wonder if they somehow thought that a crisis in the Middle East would help them in this election. :eusa_shifty:
    I hate to say that, but the way they've handled this thing is inexplicable. Why leave those guys with their asses hanging out like that? Why ramp up unrest with continued attention to that movie trailer?
