    And the president had to resign.

    Yet there is a much worse event that took place in Libya on 9-11-2012
    It was mis handled
    It was covered up
    lies were told
    apologies made

    Now that the truth has come out, no-one has been held in account

    Do not forget that:
    BHO added 3-500 billion to the base-line, and continues to claim he inherited it
    BHO did not save GM, The tax payer and against the will of the people, GWB saved them with our wealth. December 2008
    BHO stated that Obama-care was a deficit neutral event by stating that medicare would save the 650 billion needed. Why is there not been any budget adjustments made for 2013 by his admin or the senate? for that matter why has there not been a budget for the last 4 years?

    This is a mess, and for those who live in a world of denial
    In August 2004, for instance, American forces surreptitiously purchased what they believed to be containers of liquid sulfur mustard, a toxic “blister agent” used as a chemical weapon since World War I. The troops tested the liquid, and “reported two positive results for blister.” The chemical was then “triple-sealed and transported to a secure site” outside their base. …

    Nearly three years later, American troops were still finding WMD in the region. An armored Buffalo vehicle unearthed a cache of artillery shells “that was covered by sacks and leaves under an Iraqi Community Watch checkpoint. “The 155mm rounds are filled with an unknown liquid, and several of which are leaking a black tar-like substance.” Initial tests were inconclusive. But later, “the rounds tested positive for mustard.”

    Do not attack me, this is the facts as we know them

    Yes, Obama has to go, eitherway.

    Either he gets voted out or Impeached.

    Voters favor Romney by 2-to-1 for trusting him to be able to fix the economy.

    Looks like the ballot box will get rid of the stench for us.

    Maybe, maybe not, but it should not matter to a discussion on Libya. It will still be there next year and I am not even sure Romney could find it on a map.

    Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country," said Chaffetz. "We have ... 15,0000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army, there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about, can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces? When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.

    Republican Congress Cut Diplomatic Security Funding Before Benghazi Attacks; Mitt Romney Attempts to Profit Politically From Death Of Navy Seal

    It would seem the conclusions are quite obvious. As with the Republican wreckage of the US economy, it appears Republicans have again created a problem for which they are now attempting to blame the Obama Administration. This political profiteering is even more heinous due to the fact that they were warned that their cuts to diplomatic security may be harmful. But they decided to ignore those warnings. Now, after numerous incidents at US diplomatic missions where additional security may have helped, Republicans attempt to blame the Obama administration for a situation they helped make worse. Not only is this disingenuous. It is rank underhandedness and betrayal. The Republicans should both be ashamed of their witch hunt and of their past efforts to cut US diplomatic security during a time of danger.

    “I don’t trust Romney. He shouldn’t make my son’s death part of his political agenda,” Barbara Doherty said in a statement broadcast Wednesday on WHDH-TV in Boston. “It’s wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama.”

    ---------------------------------------------

    Republicans have a lot of 'splainin' to do.

    The more the truth comes out the more I have realized just how corrupt the Media as well as the BHO admin is
    If GWB had done this there is no doubt the media would be 7-24s on this

    This is like the third worse than Watergate thing you loonies have trudged up. I guess the old tactic of throwing crap against the wall until something sticks.

    when you can draw a connection with how Chaffetze voted and what took place in Lybia get back with us. Because those cuts had nothing to do with what happened in Lybia
    The government grew by ten percent last quarter. There was plenty of money to go to Benghaze. But that had nothing to do with those souls getting murdered anywho
