    Well to read many of these comments I see that this comments are not about accountability. Hillary said that we must learn from this, so all the bashing posting people that are waving their political flag,please use your education and not your opinions.
    Benghazi only matters to a political party? What is your statement say about you! What does it say about how you view your party? One thing I can say is that your respect for those dead government employees are in line with Hillary's and time has and will continue to prove that lack of care for your fellow man will bring you nothing but sorrow. For you sell out for an opinion poll.
    Just because 10 people believe something does not mean that there is any truth to them being correct, just that they all believe each other.
    To make your political choice correct how much of your soul will you sell? Watch all of the review board footage please don't make up your mind on what is true or fair by just reading a bias news print, don't waste your education. Don't decide what is right by your political bias!

    President Bush policy failures guaranteed the Demorats 16 years minimum. Maybe a Romney kid in 2032?

    Current polls show Hillary beating any Republican opponent even in states like Texas and Kentucky. The GOP are terrified of her, for good reason. You can expect attacks on Benghazi and any other topic to continue from now until election day.

    The GOP has lost the Woman's vote, the Hispanic vote, the Young vote, the Black vote, and the LGBT vote.

    I keep hearing Reagan and Reaganesque - and all I can think is that Sir Ronald himself would be labeled a Liberal RINO, handed his hat, and kicked out the 21st centrury GOP in a milli-second.

    He raised the debt ceiling 16 times,
    Increased spending,
    signed Gun-control measures,
    sought for Universal Healthcare,
    and was a BIG-Tent, Blue Dog-Democrat, Reagan-Democrat welcomed.

    But go ahead --
    Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mike Levin, and Glenn Beck are the Left-wing's own secret weapons.
    No one on the Left would EVER want to see them silenced.

    Under our last Republican President...

    x12 embassy attacks.

    x53 dead Americans, from those attacks.

    This does not include 9/11, or the Iraq and Afgahnistan wars. And Zero WMD's.

    Under our current Democratic President:

    Benghazi attack in Libya.

    After the Republican House obstructed and voted to cut security for the Benghazi embassy.

    x4 dead Americans.

    The Iraq war is over, no terrorist attack on American soil and an exit date for Afghanistan.

    If my main point to vote is for the security of our nation in 2016....

    why would I vote Republican?

    Re: "Republicans don't begin to fathom the level of anger most Americans feel about them. I predict Hillary in 2016 and again in 2020."

    Nah -- the angry ones are all liberals, mostly Democrats.

    The real Republican problem is apathy, not anger. They chronically insist on presenting the voters with a choice between liberal and liberal-lite.

    Apathy comes easy, when there's no real choice.

    Let the Republicans offer up a real, Reaganesque choice, and it'd be Katie, bar the door!

    The American people will not allow a Republican to occupy the White House again for a very long time. Bush left the country in despair, having ruined the economy and duped us into a tragic and useless war. Republicans don't begin to fathom the level of anger most Americans feel about them. I predict Hillary in 2016 and again in 2020.

    If there's any justice in the world, it will. And should.

    Unfortunately, she appears to have been anointed by Party hacks, and we all know to what lengths Democrats will go to advance their anointed ones.

    If the country wants to go backwards, they won't vote for Hillary. If the country wants to move forward, for the betterment of everyone, they would gladly vote for Hillary.
    Benghazi is a non issue for people capable of objective thought.

    By the time Hillary runs for President in 2016 (if she actually does) as bad as things are today, they will be much worse in 2016 and the idea of another liberal Democrat President will be unthinkable for most Americans.

    The question repubs should be asking themselves isn't who will be voting for Hillary Clinton in 16. The question they should be asking themselves is, "who will be voting for the GOP in 16?"

    Keep it up repubs! You folks continue to sink deeper and deeper in quicksand. He titanic begins to take water and you folks whip out your own semi autos to shoot holes in the deck resulting in it sinking even faster!

    Will anyone step in to save this party for itself? Can a party for hateful, corrupt, and disorganized really even be saved?

    Victor Hugo once said, "Human meditation has no limits. At its own risk and peril, it analyzes and digs deep into its own bedazzlement. " This is exactly what Hillary has done. Her attempt to bedazzle herself has resulted in the public receiving lies, innuendos, and half-truths, courtesy of Hillary Clinton.

    It didn't seem to effect Bush on his 2nd term, did it?

    4 die in Benghazi libya after the Republican House votes to cut funding to security.

    Almost 3,000 Americans died in 9/11 on NY soil in George W. Bush's first term.

    I know where my vote would go...

    I marvel at the extent this has become an issue. How about the American civilians and non-military personnel who were killed in Iraq during the war. There were well over one hundred of them. They got the same briefing that State Department officials got. They were notified of the high risks associated with assignments in certain parts of the world. They still volunteered to go there. I agree no State Department employee should die but can we realistically assume no one will ever die. Think about it.

    There have been an incredible number of outright lies about Benghazi. But they have NOT come from Clinton, Obama, or anyone else on that side of the issue.

    Think the conservatives had catfits when Obama was re-elected? Just wait until it become President Hillary in 2016!

    James Carafano's assessement of Hillary Clinton's involvement in the aftermath of "Benghazi" is based on nothing but fear! Using the right wing media formula of quoting partial statements he tries to paint a picture of an uncaring, unprofessional amd over emotional Diplomat! The truth is, Carafano could care less about HRC the Diplomat past or present, but like the rest of the Republican party is terrified of the future HRC Presidential Candidate! Obama for eight years then HRC for eight years. Little did McConnell realize when he committed to denying Obama another 4 year that it would probably be 16 years, and who knows, the way the Repubs. have been imploding, how many after that!

    Benghazi only matters to those who would never vote for Hillary anyway.
