    What would you say if you learned that a top admiral and a top general were both fired for planning/trying to help the US ambassador in Benghazi who was under fire?

    Most of us remember the "Blackhawk Down" scenario when the politicians overruled the local military commanders which led to disaster.

    IF/WHEN this breaks that the BO admin not only let four Americans die when they could have been rescued during an 8-hour firefight, that will cost a lot of votes.

    FXN just had a minute-by-minute description of the attack, and when this gets MSM attention, votes will be swayed.

    Also, General Carter Ham was relieved of duty after he reportedly wanted to rescue the Ambassador against orders. Where are the real MSM news folks when there is a real news story. Did the BO admin let the ambassador and the others die needlessly, and will the MSM track down the truth?

    They will get their jobs back when Obama loses the election.

    Kind of funny that. As soon as Obama loses his job, the unemployment rate goes down.

    When Nixon went down it wasn't because of what happened, it was the cover-up and the lying that offend America's moral compass. I hope we still maintain that sense of decency.
    Because this time the dead require truth and justice, and America owes it to them to stand on moral ground. That's our duty.

    If even half of this is true its decisive. Its the "3am phone call scenario" in real time...

    Security adviser Bud McFarlane had contempt for the inaction when he was interviewed. If the geneeral & admiral were relieved for trying to help, that should be news?!

    If General Ham, who was on station I believe, could have saved those people and didn't because of asshole orders from the WH then he should be fired, if not worse.

    Obama's a fucking criminal, he's should be charged as an accomplice in both Brian Terry's murder and in Chris Stevens.

    For the MSM to come out against Obama now would mean admitting that they were wrong to support to sleazy bastard in the first place. This will not happen.

    Tinfoil hats out in force today! Two big problems: there was no real-time info on what was going on and any aid that could possibly have been called upon would have arrived long after the incident. Nothing to see here except CONS making fools of themselves.

    I don't understand how I'd be the inane one. Panetta totally backs me up and so does Condaleeza Rice!
