    Aside from Paul jr.'s fanciful musings about becoming President (which will never ever happen) and ridiculous idiocy about Ms. Clinton's leaving office; Rand Paul posed a really freaking bizzare question.

    He asked about Libyan shipments of arms to Turkey.

    Say what?

    What's odd about it? You do realize that arms dealings is a big part of what happened in Benghazi, right? Not to mention he may have access to information much of the public doesn't have.

    Not a very informed thread start, even for you. Arms dealing is a critical issue here.

    Perhaps you should try the cooking or needlepoint forums?

    Because it makes absolutely no sense.

    Turkey is a NATO ally and has access to some of the best weapons available to modern nations.

    Why the fuck would they be purchasing second hand dusty might not work crap from Libya?

    You think the arms were going to the government in Turkey? How quaint.

    Perhaps the "rebels" in Libya were smuggling the weapons to "rebel" elements in Turkey. I don't know from the lack of context you've provided. And considering you clearly don't understand it either, wouldn't it be wiser to do some more research into it then immediately declaring Rand a fool?

    you are more upset that the question was asked than you are about the Secretary of State having no idea about something that is in the news as it pertains to international arms sales....and taking place where our ambassador was murdered.

    Why is that? Becuase she is an Obama cabinet member, it doesnt matter to you?

    Tell me ANYTHING that makes sense about what happened in Benghazi and the Obama's response to the abandonment and murder of a US ambassador.
