I've heard more from the outraged right in the last 4 months about these 4 deaths, the lies, and alleged cover-up than I have heard in twice as many years about the calculated deceit, deliberate lies, and propaganda that drove this country into an unwinnable war that continues to kill our military and civilians worldwide. Where was your outrage then? Your sentiment is extremely disproportionate.

Sideliner, I guess it's because we never believed the Iraq war was a deliberate lie or cover up. Bush and Rice didn't parade around for days telling us they found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq after they entered Iraq. Obama and Clinton both told the outright lie, and they knew it was a lie, that the attack on our Embassy was due to a riot over a parody of Islam rather than a terror attack. They lied, and they continue to lie. And as far as Clinton, it must be a family trait. "I did not have sexual relations with that woman... or that one, or that one...."

President Obama's decisions were uni-lateral.

President Bush had support from Congress. Where were the elected official that questioned the accuracy of the information? What about dual party representation on the various committees and none of them said the data on WMD was bogus or unconfirmed? Or Colin Powell making a speech to the UN to get their support; did you hear Great Britain, France, Russia, India, Japan, Germany or anyone say the intelligence was bad?

I will agree that there was no plan to establish an exit plan or self-sustaining government but people from both parties own the Afghanistan and Iraq wars.

The Benghazi situation is terrible, I don't think anyone would disagree with that. I just think it's amazing how agressive people are about an attack that killed four people, including one ambassador, in a foreign country, but in US territory. Have people forgotten 9/11? That was an attack on our own soil, with multiple attackers, and thousands of victims. Nobody on the right ripped Bush apart, they stood behind him, and followed the path to war. It amazes me how little people remember. Was Benghazi worse than 9/11? Think about it. Things happen, there is only so much we can do.

"Secretary of State Clinton went to Congress and was praised by the Left and asked relevant questions by the Right"

Yes. "Now tell us Secretary Clinton, considering Humpty Dumpty was pushed, and you were clearly behind the lie that he fell, why shouldn't you go home and take a cyanide capsule? You know this was the worst disaster that EVER happened to our country."

"Was Benghazi worse than 9/11?"

For that matter, was it worse than Hurricane Sandy, whose victims were left dangling waiting for assistance by the Republicans in Congress.

Was it worse than what happened in Newtown, or the 8 other school shootings that happened since?

Hillary might be President in four years, who knows? We had 4 Americans killed in Libya and all she can say is 'What difference does it make' how they were killed. She is very cold and callous.

Cogent thought - making Hazy one up on Bobbie. At least the rest of the conservative posters make an effort to represent their positions. Although the subject disagreement continues, most comments are fairly civil. Can the name calling stop? We won't agree but the election is over. How about offering opinions. That is the point of posting.

People want a person to blame. There is no one person to blame.

A series of events and decisions lead to the death of 4 Americans in Lybia.

People want our leaders to tell the truth, not cover it up because they think it makes them look bad just before an election.

Lying is politically acceptable and can be done with impunity. What we need are real reporters instead of ideologues that cover up for politicians and use news to push their agenda.

"What we need are real reporters instead of ideologues that cover up for politicians and use news to push their agenda."

Laugh out loud at that one.

You need to break the corporate hold of the news media and free it up. I don't care which 'news source' you favor it has been compromised to cover up for politicians and to push an agenda. There are few if any true independent news source media outlets. People get affirmation not information. It happens with all ideologues.

"Knowing someone is going to be killed is 100 percent liable on her part she is a disgusting old hag and should face the same fate. You don't think those 4 people had family?"

Almost as the attacks occured, theorists began claiming FDR had prior knowledge of the assault on Pearl Harbor. Others have claimed he tricked the Japanese into starting a war with the US as a "back door" way to go to war with Japan's ally, NAZI Germany. Most scholars view Pearl Harbor as the consequence of missed cues, intelligence errors, and overconfidence. Source: FDR Presidential Library and Museum. Perhaps there's just as much, or more, of that going on in today's America as in the 1930's and 40's.

Bobbie - Hard concept here. Is Hillary ultimately responsible for job performance in her agency, yes. Being responsible and knowing are not one in the same. I imagine it's possible you once held a job. If so, did you go directly to the president of the company or the CEO with issues that arose or was their a supervisory chain? Unfortunately little works like a well-oiled machine. If that were so, we would not have spent weeks discussing Sandusky/Paterno.

Butrev- Your tired repetition of the the Bush Presidency and the Iraq war is just soooooooo boring. Bush AND the Libs and the other intel agencies decided that the intel was accurate and proceeded. No Hate Here!
