Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

V. The U.S. military’s response to the Benghazi attack was severely degraded because of the location and readiness posture of U.S. forces, and because of lack of clarity about how the terrorist action was unfolding. However, given the uncertainty about the prospective length and scope of the attack, military commanders did not take all possible steps to prepare for a more extended operation.

V. There was no “stand down” order issued to U.S. military personnel in Tripoli who sought to join the fight in Benghazi. However, because official reviews after the attack were not sufficiently comprehensive, there was confusion about the roles and responsibilities of these individuals.

II. U.S. personnel in Benghazi were woefully vulnerable in September 2012 because a.) the administration did not direct a change in military force posture, b.) there was no intelligence of a specific “imminent” threat in Libya, and c.) the Department of State, which has primary responsibility for diplomatic security, favored a reduction of Department of Defense security personnel in Libya before the attack.

III. Defense Department officials believed nearly from the outset of violence in Benghazi that it was a terrorist attack rather than a protest gone awry, and the President subsequently permitted the military to respond with minimal direction.

Findings:

I. In assessing military posture in anticipation of the September 11 anniversary, White House officials failed to comprehend or ignored the dramatically deteriorating security situation in Libya and the growing threat to U.S. interests in the region. Official public statements seem to have exaggerated the extent and rigor of the security assessment conducted at the time.

There was no stand down order because the situation was so totally botched by the administration. No wonder they lied.

Promise made surefoot!

Jax, maybe we should just get rid of congress, would that suit you?

I mean, come on, some of us want to know what's going on in a government that spends $3 Trillion in a year.

You're fast becoming a joke.

Preach on surefoot!!!

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS means the PRESS holds the government's feet to the fire, not kiss it's backside and write fluff pieces on failed policies.

Freeman; you promise never to vote for a Bush and I will promise never to vote for a Clinton.

They are one in the same any how.

The 2014 World Press Freedom Index spotlights major decline in media freedom in the United States. The US has been listed along with countries such as Central African Republic and Guatemala in the Index, which was published on Wednesday by Reporters Without Borders

The United States has gone 13 positions down to 46th in this year's index, which covers 180 countries.

News Flash! A GOP report on Benghazi! "The House Armed Services Committee that there is no way for the U.S. military to have responded in time to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya to save the four Americans killed that night. In doing so, the report DEBUNKS ENTIRELY a right wing myth that the White House ordered the military not to intervene.

I understand the glee Republicans got seeing Susan McDougall in shackles. But take something like Bush/Cheney wanting to turn national energy policy over to Enron and Kenny-boy Lay, and all you got was crickets from Republicans. And Republicans want to ramp up another Benghazi investigations. As I said, it's what they do. Waste taxpayer time, waste taxpayer money.

"...Ultimately the Clintons were never charged, but 15 other persons were convicted of more than 40 crimes, including Bill Clinton's successor as Governor, who was removed from office..."

Sounds like an investigation was warranted to me.

And, by the way, it wasn't Issa who wrote letters urging the investigation of "True the Vote". That was Rep. Elijah Cummings (D), the ranking member, doing his J-O-B.

If it's only the republicans that are investigating anything then maybe you should take a serious look at the democrats as an honest party.

It is their J-O-B to investigate jaxspp.

So, your girl, Lois invokes her 5th amendment right protecting her from self incrimination and you see no problem?

Your idea of an investigation doesn't include interviewing any of the victims?

Really? You won't find anything out that way but, I guess, you'd rather be dumb and happy.

"I see nothing, noooo-thing!!!!!" OK Sgt. Schultz, keep taking Col. Klink's word for it.

freem..Do you think we should discriminate against the gays like the muslims, Chrislicans and commies?

Maybe I'm being P-L-A-Y-E-D, but I can't live my life in paranoid fear like you Free. Their are not boogeymen around every corner for me as there is for you.

Posted 204 days ago.

There are investigations because with Republicans, you always get investigations. Always have, always will. $60 million to investigate the Clintons, and all they found was a dirty dress.

freem.. Have you ever wondered how they found million year old footprints on a planet that is only 6,000-9,000 years old?

You shouldn't be so harsh on Romneycare until it's had time to work out the kinks.

So, back to the ACA, it took 2000+ pages of legislation to ban pre-existing conditions, keep young people on their parents' insurance until they're 26 and force policy prices to not discriminate against women.

Seems to me there was an easier way, but, then again how could you tax the boots off of the American economy by doing it the "easy way"?

Kind of like voter fraud. If you don't look for it, you won't find it, right? Ask ACORN,,,oops "THEY GONE".
