    Pagan you still don't deal with my facts about the weak Clinton administration. And it was because of "waterbording" which I'm sure you are against, that Obama was able to have the info to kill Obama bin Laden. Sarcasm inteneded.

    The Benghazi attacks, where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed, happened on 9/11/12. This is from yesterday's hearing:

    "A Defense Department timeline says that Panetta and Dempsey had been informed of the terrorist attack in Benghazi at 4:32 p.m.–28 minutes before they went into their meeting with Obama. At today’s hearing, Panetta said he informed Obama of the attack when they entered their 5:00 p.m. meeting. That was one hour and 18 minutes after the attack started and while it was ongoing,"

    Panetta told Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) that Obama left operational details "up to us."

    "Did you have any further communications with him that night?" Sen. Ayotte asked.

    "No", Panetta said."--Washington Examiner 2/7/13.

    At least Bush began killing terriorists after the 2nd bombing. - m.g. scott

    *'Osama bin Laden Killed: 'Justice Is Done,' President Says' - By DEAN SCHABNER - ABC News - 05/01/2011

    'Osama bin Laden, hunted as the mastermind behind the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, has been killed, President Obama announced tonight.'

    Thank you George W. Bush for keeping us safe...

    after, the world trade center was destroyed.

    Sarcasm, off.

    The biggest oxymoron in the world, "Middle East Peace". The only way there will be any kind of peace between Jews and Palistianians is when one of them is not there anymore. And since that is not likely to happen, peace won't either.

    Pagan, don't forget that the planning for 911 by OBL was done in the years when Clinton was President and we had a weak national security policy. Things like the CIA can't talk to the FBI. And remember the 1st World Trade Center bombing happened on Clintons watch but he did nothing about it. At least Bush began killing terriorists after the 2nd bombing.

    and BHO (D) in Lybia. Or did you forget that we were attacked on 9/11? - lost in DC

    Um, 9/11 happened in 2001.

    Obama was elected in 2008.

    that's right, peace - what Wilson (D) abandoned in 1917, what FRD (D) abandoned in 1941, what Truman (D) abandoned in Korea and JFK (D) and LBJ (D) in Vietnam; oh, and BHO (D) in Lybia. Or did you forget that we were attacked on 9/11?

    If he had put Hagel as Secretary of State and Kerrey as Secretary of Defense I would say that there would be a possibility. But with the way it is and the White House being mute on Netanyahu's recent announcement to expand settlements, I don't think that justice in the West Bank is on Obama's radar screen.
