    These “busy people” are insane. No wonder this country is in such disarray!

    What the F**k does this mean? “Representative Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), the top Democrat on the committee,
    said the board was run by Ambassador Thomas Pickering and Adm. Mike
    Mullen, who he said have “impeccable reputations and unparalleled
    experience.” He said Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state at the
    time, has already accepted “personal responsibility for the attacks and
    accepted all of the recommendations of the ARB.””

    I watched this mess yesterday on CSpan. The Republicans are trying to find out who gave the order to stand down (Hillary or Obama) and allow 4 Americans to die. Demonrats Boxer and child prostitute lover Dempsey want to talk about moving on and making sure it never happens again. FULL COVERUP MODE FOR THE DEMS, FOR SURE. I have an idea to make sure it never happens again. LOCK UP THE WHOLE DAMN BUNCH OF THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE OF THIS TRAGEDY. HILLARY AND OBAMA, FOR STARTERS.

      General Martin Dempsey is decorated combat veteran who has served his country with honor for 39 years. He has a flawless service record and zero charges against him for anything. He participated along with Leon Panetta in the investigation into Secret Service and military officers in President Obama’s security detail having sex with prostitutes in Colombia. He was never charged with anything regarding this scandal – the Secret Service agents and military officers involved were! Dempsey was one of the investigators of their crimes. He is Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff! Do you think he could possibly hold his position if he were ever charged with having relations with child prostitutes?! People constantly make ludicrous, scurrilous, unsubstantiated charges of serious crimes against individuals who are totally innocent on this site. It really is reprehensible. And naturally this libelous coward calls himself Anonymous.

    Why was there no effort by the Democrats to investigate and impeach Ronald Reagan after 242 Marines in Beirut and 189 U.S. civilians over Lockerbie, Scotland were murdered by terrorist attacks on his watch? He ordered the Marines to Beirut against U.S. military advice that warned against their vulnerability. Why wasn’t George W. Bush prosecuted and impeached for the 3000 Americans slaughtered by terrorists at the Twin Towers 9 months into his presidency? Why the huge controversy over Benghazi that cost the lives of 4 Americans versus the mass terrorist slaughters mentioned above? Shouldn’t the president always be held responsible, prosecuted, impeached, and executed whenever an American dies in a terrorist attack? Or even whenever an American is killed period by any murderer, anywhere on earth? No? Do you mean to say that the persons responsible for terrorist murders are the actual terrorists who commit those murders – and not the individual who happens to be president at the time? What a bizarre concept. A man was murdered on my street five months ago by his brother. But I think Obama is responsible for that murder. After all, he was president at the time. There should be a Congressional investigation into this murder. Obama should be impeached over it. And Eric Holder as well.

      I guess you forgot the hearings with Oliver North in the hot seat. The Democrats tried but Reagan was not guilty and so it didn’t work. Those hearings were all over the TV for days. When will people quit bringing Bush into everything, believe me if they could have impeached Bush they would have. Besides this is NOT his Presidency, it is O’Bama’s and you cannot investigate anything with the Senate controlled by the Democrats, specifically Harry Reid, Pelosi and then there is Holder. Remember Clinton lying to Congress, he told them he would not leave even though they Impeached him, then they backed off. WHY? The Democrats will do everything to protect O’Bama and Hillary, she is their no.1 choice for President in 2016. I wouldn’t put it past O’Bama to declare war with Syria just before his Presidency is over. Then what?

      Perhaps some of the controversy over Benghazi is because both Obama and Hillary deliberately lied as to why it had happened. Indeed the Administration even “apologized” for the movie that had upset the Muslims. To have claimed that it was just a peaceful demonstration that got out of hand was just ridiculous. Reagan immediately labeled the attack on the Marine barracks as an act of terrorism and did withdraw the American forces from the multinational force that they were with. Your second example fails because Reagan had the plane bombing investigated, and at least one of the two responsible was jailed for his crimes in Scotland. The Libyan leader wound up paying the victims’ families restitution. President Bush declared the towers to have been the results of terrorism, did not apologise to the guilty and we went to war. President Obama lied, apologised, has not investigated, has not brought or cause to be brought to justice those responsible and has in fact declared it to be “a phony scandal”.

  • garygerke

    It is all smoke and mirrors!!!!!!!!!!! No one will be responsible for anything, no one will be brought up on charges for anything. Our country is broken, our government has made sure the American people know nothing. The present imposters that call themselves our representatives are liars, cheats and murderers.
