Stay tuned for the next episode of ‘Benghazi’, the GOP drama

Stay tuned for the next episode of ‘Benghazi’, the GOP drama

Benghazi. Where have I heard that word before?

Oh, yeah, I remember. It was the place in Libya where our U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other persons lost their lives. They were killed by Islamic terrorists on Sept. 11, 2012. Their deaths were tragic — all four of the deaths.

There have been countless hearings and documents released concerning Benghazi. One finding was that Congress had not provided adequate funds for diplomatic security.

Now, I ask the reader to turn the clock back. It is now March 2003. President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney launch Operation Iraqi Freedom and invade Iraq. President Bush and Vice President Cheney assure the American people this invasion is an absolute necessity because the Iraqis, under the leadership of Saddam Hussein, have developed weapons of mass destruction.

We now know there were no weapons of mass destruction. We also know that there were about 186,00 men, women, and children killed in this war. Many persons also lost their limbs, and suffered from severe mental problems. Both Americans and Iraqis were casualties.

Remember, there were four deaths in Benghazi and approximately 186,000 casualties as the result of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Which of these two events would merit countless inquiries by a Republican Congress: Benghazi while President Obama was in office or Operation Iraqi Freedom, while President George W. Bush was in office?

Did the U.S. invade Iraq to control that nation’s oil? Is the Republican Congress going to have hearings on Benghazi so they try to weaken Hillary Clinton even before she becomes a 2016 presidential candidate? Stay tuned.

Robert E. Casey, Boardman

Sounds like DEMOCRATS are afraid! Answer the following questions: 1. Who gave the "stand down" order for the military NOT to help Americans? 2. Who came up with the RIDICULOUS video story? Where was NOBAMA during the raid? Can't wait for the IMPEACHMENT TRIAL!

Mr. Casey: All Democrats voted to go to war against Iraq. The WFD were transported to the Bekka Valley- Where have you been in the last 10 years, apparently in a coma. Facts: Chris Stevens was tortured, raped and dragged thur the streets of Benghazi, The British and even our Red Cross left the country, that's why Chris Stevens was begging for protection-months before this killing. Mr Casey, We know Hillary Clinton said, What difference does it make now..? Let's say it was Chelsea Clinton who was named Ambassador and was tortured and raped. Mr Casey, Would Hillary say 'What difference does it make now..? To this day Obama refuses to investigate this Muslim terrorist attack, Today Americans are now told to leave Libya...Previous to Obama--Libya was a very safe country to visit. Now it is anti-American--Wake up Mr Casey.

incidentally, we knew -- and even back in the reign of Clinton, the rapist-in-chief -- knew that Saddam's Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, because he had USED them against some of the inhabitants of that land. It's been a matter of record for those with with the willingness to see, and who are not halfwit Democrap minions.
The details of Benghazi are hazy, but the broad outlines of the incident and the coverup are pretty clear. Shrillary and Obumble allowed Americans to be slaughtered and misused in ghastly ways, and covered up their own cowardice and criminal malfeasance in order to sell to gullible Americans that the Muslim terror network was mortally damaged and in retreat. Which was and is a lie.
And it was done to further base political objectives. That's despicable and dishonorable and, I believe, criminal as well.

"I bumped my head" Hillary as ABC News reported: ~ Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suffered a concussion earlier this week after she hit her head when she fainted because of dehydration from a stomach virus, a Clinton aide said today in a statement.

“She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors,” Deputy Assistant Secretary Philippe Reines said. “At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon.”

No ambulance was called and she was not hospitalized, according to a state department official.

Clinton was supposed to travel to North Africa last week and then to the United Arab Emirates at the beginning of the week, but cancelled her trip due to illness.

She was expected to testify before Congress on Thursday at hearings on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Associated Press reported that her appearance has now been cancelled.

~ Bill Clinton did more today than defend his wife, Hillary Clinton, from recent accusations leveled by GOP strategist Karl Rove that she suffered brain damage after falling in December 2012.

The former president revealed that his wife’s injury “required six months of very serious work to get over,” he said during a question-and-answer session at the Peterson Foundation in Washington.

“They went to all this trouble to say she had staged what was a terrible concussion that required six months of very serious work to get over,” he said. “It’s something she never low-balled with the American people, never tried to pretend it didn’t happen.”

Such a high level government employee falls and gets a concussion which was bad enough to cause her to take 6 months to recuperate but she never even went to the hospital to be checked out at the time of the accident. Sure smells fishy to me. Any other government official would have been whisked away to the nearest hospital by ambulance to be thoroughly checked out at the time of the accident if it really happened.

Sound more like she had Benghazi fever, not stomach virus.
