    Not out for blood but just some reasonable, plausible answers to some simple questions. Glad some of this is starting to come out. I still think Susan Rice is a distraction for what really happened during and since the attack.

    How did Susan Rice reporting what the CIA told her about the attack have anything to do with 2 dead seals and an ambassador. I don't think the story of an alleged cover up has legs beyond Fox news, and a few grandstanding politicians. What if everything Darrell Issa, John McCain and Lindsay Graham claim is true, how does that change anything and what difference does it make? It's rather like Pres Bush on the deck of an aircraft carrier announcing the war is over. Neither on is very important. However, for my part the use of governmental power to keep citizens from voting certainly does.

    A dead ambassador and two dead Navy SEALs, that's no big deal at all, is it. Are you serious?

    I guess I don't see why this is such a big deal for anyone but Sean Hannity and his cronies. What I would like to know is why McCain isn't investigating charges by Florida's former Republican governor and party chairman that Florida Republicans deliberately attempted to keep Democratic voters from voting in Florida and in other states too.

    (Continued) Third, and perhaps most important, when we invaded Iraq on the premise that there were WMD, and that premise turned out to be false, the outrage didn't occur immediately. It occurred with time as the war took its toll economically and in lives lost. However, oddly enough, many in the military remained positive with the idea of going to Iraq, WMD or no. They were happy to have removed Saddam Hussein from power and were happy still to fight the unsavory elements trying to replace him. And while thousands of American lives have been lost, it can't at all be considered in vain. However, two Navy SEALs are dead, several years later. We know why thousands died in Iraq. Why are there two dead Navy SEALs? The Obama Administration has told us NOTHING, except for the complete and utter falsehood that it was because of an anti-Muslim video, which simply isn't true. Why are they dead? Why is an Ambassador dead? This is a terrible scandal! If I were still in the military and two people died under my watch and I didn't explain myself in like manner, I would be in the brig.

    Ah, yes, Selznik. I was waiting for someone to go there. I'm glad you did. There is a HUGE difference between the thousands of military personnel who lost their lives in Iraq and the two Navy SEALs who lost theirs in Benghazi. First of all, When Condoleeza Rice told us there were WMD in Iraq, at the behest of her superiors, she wasn't hiding anything. It was very bad intel, but everyone had access to the same intel. Granted, a few in Congress, like Barack Obama, to their credit, still opposed going into Iraq. But MOST went along with the bad intel as they were still sore about 9/11 and wanted blood. Pretty much NO ONE believed the incident in Benghazi was a random, video-inspired uprising, because everyone, besides the Obama Administration, knew it wasn't. Second, the Bush Admin WAS wrong about WMD and has since been crucified for it, especially by the mainstream media. The blame has fallen solely on Bush and his inner circle while most in Washington indeed wanted to invade Iraq initially. There is NO SUCH outrage from the same media today for the way The White House totally botched the Benghazi incident.

    John McCain (who has never gotten over losing to President Obama), Lindsey Graham (from south carolina...need anyone say more) and Kelly Ayotte (who deleted ALL her e-mails) need to reveal all their e-mails, any type of communication with anyone, as well as bank statements and a timeline of their whereabouts from 9/11 going forward.

    Americans are deeply troubled by the acts of these three senators.

    What are they hiding?

    Killpack, Just like all the Americans who died in Iraq looking for the mythical weapons of mass destruction that Condoleezza Rice told us about.

    This is a NO WIN for the federal government. Either you didn't know what happened, and you look incredibly foolish and incompetent, because everyone else besides you knew what was going on besides you. Or, perhaps worse, you did know, but refused to tell the truth, making you a liar. My heart goes out to the families of two deceased Navy SEALs who may never know what happened to their sons, because of the incompetence and/or lack of integrity coming from our leaders in Washington.
