    So, I notice there are a ton of Benghazi threads & 9/11 threads here in the 'Politics' forum.
    Another thing I have noticed over the years is G. W. Bush has gotten a 'free pass' on 9/11.
    Conversely Obama & HRC get crucified over the Benghazi attack.

    Let's do just a minor comparison.

    9/11 attacks happened on US soil, 3,000 people died, the result was two wars, both wars are still ongoing, with the financial costs are into the trillion$ & the human costs are nearly 1 million lives.

    Benghazi attacks happened in Libya, four US dead, four US wounded, and the financial costs & the costs in lives will never approach anything compared to 9/11.

    So, here is what I DON'T GET.

    With the effects of 9/11 so enormous, so epic, and honestly there is no comparison in modern history, WHY does G. W. Bush continue to get that 'free pass' for 9/11, all while there is a 'cottage industry' of people that zealously blame Obama & HRC for the Benghazi attacks?

    It is a very strange thing; I certainly do not understand why people's priorities are seeming misplaced when 9/11 is such the 'Earth shattering' event compared to the Benghazi attack, which seems almost like a sneeze, when compared to 9/11.

    What am I missing?

    You should be asking yourself why Clinton got a pass. The whole thing was planned on his watch. Bush was in office for eight months when 9-11 occurred and he will forever get the blame. No one gave him a pass and some real asinine comments have come out about 9-11 and Bush.

    FBI agent John O'Neil knew something was up but he couldn't get anyone to listen to him. To bad they didn't because the whole attack might never have happened.

    The attack and deaths at Benghazi was gross negligence by the State Department. They had plenty of warning about an attack and the anniversary of 9-11 coming up. The Brits and the Red Cross got those same warnings and pulled their people out of the area which is what State should have done with our people. Had they done so the Benghazi attack would have killed no Americans and might not have happened at all.

    Of course Clinton. The whole thing was planned on his watch. John O'Neil was telling them something was up but everyone thought he was nuts. Neither Clinton or Bush would listen.

    Bush was in office for eight months and that attack took years to plan.

    You should try to stay on topic and stop being such a jackass.

    Bottom line 9/11 happened on G. W.'s watch & G. W. took a ONE month vacation immediately preceding 9/11.

    That is not a leader; that is a "jackass" as you used for your abusive & trolling phrase.

    So, now that we've cleared the air on your (1) derailing (2) abuse (3) trolling, you continue to give Bush a break.

    So, when your trailer was destroyed by fire did you blame the firemen for not getting there in time to put the trailer fire out, or did you blame the arsonist that started your trailer on fire?

    Yeah; I could never figure how these Bengahzi folks get so NUTZ about four Americans dying in Lybia, yet when 3,000 are murdered on US soil that same, rabid Benghazi crowd just turn into a wall of silence.

    That tells the intelligent folks that the Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi crowd are just fake as Hell & they don't really care that 3,000 people were murdered on American soil. They don't get it, for some reason. They must really hate America & Americans to be so silent & worthless.

    we went to war over 9-11.
    (Bush--We've got to do something about this)

    we were blocked, and still are, about why Benghazi happened.

    (Benghazi? Why worry about that, I've got an election coming up. (Obama))

    Yes; I touched on that subject in the OP. Those wars are still ongoing, have costs at least $2 trillion, and have cost nearly 1 million lives.

    That a YUGE waste for something that Bush could have prevented, instead of going down to the ranch for BBQ for a month. Yippy.
