"There were 4 Americans murdered in Benghazi…and yes, it was terrorism. There were 4 Americans murdered at the Boston marathon…and yes, it was terrorism. I am glad the Administration put all the resources it did into finding the bombers in Boston – it was important. The Administration did exactly right in investigating in Boston (the jury is still out on what the Administration did or did not do before the bombing.) But why are our 4 murdered Americans in Benghazi not so important? I think they are." Greta Van Susteren

I still care.....what are we doing about the men we identified (???) that killed Americans in Benghazi?

I agree with you, maria.

But he won't.

He has NOTHING.

He just wants to play silly liberal games.

I agree with maria, worryfree. START a topic. Show us what you got.

Time for a "what about WMD's" topic. We can go on and on for years about what happened to the WMD's so many Americans died trying unsuccessfully to find. And we can talk about Cheney lies. And we can hope to hurt Republicans with the topic for the 2016 elections.

Btc: <<<"How could I have known? The Bush/Cheney administration always gets a pass, but, not the Obama/Biden administration....">>>

--You still suffering from selective memory? They're still doing investigation and reports about their actions, just last week they released another report on CIA torture... In any case, I judge Obama and his administration by his actions, not Bush/Cheney's...

<<<_The world thinks Bush/Cheney may have committed war crimes, it ruined the economy of the US and put us into TWO wars instead of one, but, hey they were just good old boys...">>>

--So where are the charges? Your people control Washington, and have controlled Washington for 6 years now. That is one of the reasons that Benghazi details are so tough to get, anything that is damaging to their narratives are hidden from the public, just like the accounts of the firsthand witnesses that until recently were forbidden to testify or talk about.

By the way, did you check out the video I posted regarding a liberal talking head's Benghazi viewpoint? It's a real video, one you can click and watch for yourself, not one that I claim I saw but can't find again.

"Ambassador Stevens wasn't murdered" indeed. Another indictment of blind partisanship to carry water at any cost.

Now, here you will find a liberal talking head explaining how Ambassador Stevens died...

Eleanor Clift: Ambassador Stevens Wasn't Murdered, He Died Of Smoke Inhalation

ELEANOR CLIFT: I would like to point out Ambassador Stevens was not murdered. He died of smoke inhalation in the safe room in that CIA installation.

SUSAN FERRECHIO: I don't think that's a fact, Eleanor.

CLIFT: I think that is a fact.

FERRECHIO: I've heard a drastically different story from people who are also in the know about that. So, I don't think it is --

PAT BUCHANAN: It was a terrorist attack, Eleanor. He was murdered in a terrorist attack.

CLIFT: It was an opportunistic terrorist attack that grew out of that video.

BUCHANAN: The video had nothing to do with it.

CLIFT: There were demonstrations across the world.

--You see, apparently the previous hearing was not conclusive enough for people such as Clift.

If you are accused of something, is it unreasonable to ask for proof to substantiate said accusation?

I don't see you ever calling maria out, I wonder why that is?

There is a difference between working with the opposition & finding compromise, and abandoning your principles because it is politically expedient. On the flip side, the democrats have these type of people too, look at Landrieu, she muscled up a vote for the Keystone pipeline after 6 years. Why? Not for the good of the country or her constituents (if so, she would have done this long ago). She did it because she needed political cover. She is an excellent example of someone that abandons their principles in the name of political expediency.

--They are both rino's due to the fact that they often caucus with the democrats, even though they are supposedly republicans, thus the "republicans in name only" monicker.

I didn't vote for Dole, another rino. Bush 1 & Reagan were able to compromise with democrats, and work together for the greater good of the country. A good president will lead the country and steer the conversation towards what he feels is best for our country, but never monopolize the conversation. Obama's administration has blocked investigation of the witnesses, declared Benghazi to be a witch hunt, and resisted cooperating with the investigation. There has been little to no transparency, but rather all politics, all of the time.

Now how is it that Jeff Flakes words were translated into a condemnation into any investigation about Benghazi? He was asked a leading question as to whether or not he thought republicans should stop talking about Benghazi, he answered that he thought that it should have been ended long ago, and you quote him as stating that <<<"Sen. Jeff Flake urges GOP to move on from Benghazi.">>>

When one looks at the big picture, it would appear that once these firsthand witnesses began sharing their testimony with the rest of the world, because the committees did not and would not hear their testimony, the credibility of these people is attacked, and a "We know all we need to know" mantra is begun.

For the good of our country, and the peace of the families that lost loved ones, the truth must be known, no matter how painful it might be to any government official. If it was to find that some middle level obscure military officer is the root of the mishandled event and is the recipient of disciplinary action as a result, so be it. If Obama or one of his cabinet was the root of of the mishandled event, then they should be the ones disciplined. If it was a republican person,the same goes.

This should be handled like Watergate, the truth is determined, released, and let he dominoes fall where they may. Accountability is a requirement, not an elective wish.

First off, Jeff Flake is much like McCain, a rino. Secondly, he is simply worried about looking good with his political numbers instead of finding the truth, a trait he shares with most politicians.

A proper investigation, with ALL evidence and witnesses considered, should be conducted in a reasonable amount of time, DESPITE the whining and crying of anyone too lazy or too partisan to care.

To stir interest and continue doubt on this subject just so you can sell books is abuse of the families, too, is it not, mweyant? Both sides have deployed the moves to keep this tragedy going for their OWN benefit. That is what needs to stop. And Gowdy needs to get a move on to finish his "investigation" instead of trying to drag this out for 2 more years just to use it as a political motive in the next election. There is no reason other than politics to delay any longer.

I am more familiar with the names of the family members of those who were murdered than I am with Senator Jeff Flake. Wishing Jeff Flake well, but the families need to know everything, and until both sides of the
Benghazi situation agree on what happened, I personally hope all investigations, no matter who conducts them, proceed, no matter how painstakingly they are occurring. You have to have respect for the families . . .
