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

No way the Republicans let go of the Benghazi red-meat -- no amount of explanation, no level of inquiry, no quantity of answers will ever, in a million years, assuage these partisans.

They will never accept any answers, because their goal is to keep this issue in the news for crass political reasons.

If the right-wingers hate this country so much, why don't they just go to Russia to live, or something?

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 You are the typical liberal who feels that your party can do no wrong. Well guess again. Yes we went to war with Iraq , but OBAMMY and HILLIARY both voted to go there. But once again you feel that\'s not important to mention. At least Bush didn't make up a bunch of lies after wards. The video story etc. Both OBAMMY and HILLIARY deserve to be in jail for what they did. It was unthinkable. But once again you liberals who are probably getting all the free stuff from your liberal leaders don't feel that way. Just keep the freebies coming.

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.

Hey familymember, who said the following?

"I'm planning to cut the deficit in half in my 1st term in office."

" The way George Bush has done it the last 8 years is he has added 4 trillion to our national debt. that's irreesponsible, that's unpatriotic." By the way, how much has Obama added to out Nat Debt?

"If you like your DR, you can, keep your Dr."

"If you like your hosp. plan , you can keep your plan."

'nuff said!

You know, if Casey would just stop & think - IF Saddam were alive today, he would know that his neighbor, Iran, is very close to having The Bomb, & that Iran & Iraq have been enemies for a long time. Does he think that with Iran being that close to having The Bomb, that Saddam would sit idly by & not research The Bomb? Can he imagine these rogue nations, in the Middle East, having The Bomb? I can't.
Both these rogue countries hate Israel who does have The Bomb. Since we, the US, are allied with Israel, we would be draged into this mess, so Casey, that thing on your shoulders - use it wisely man.

"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.”

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/...

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.

Jesus & an Altar put behind a curtain.

This is especially egregious in the context of the governments effort to popularize
Islam by adding its studies in our school curriculums and providing Islamic prayer rooms
in many of our schools and other public buildings while banning all Judeo-Christian
activities in government/school facilities. All driven by obama and his goons.

The religion of Government Services (GS) trumps all others … except Islam of course.
Stick Mohammed back there and see what happens.
