Kingman letters: Remember Benghazi in 2016

When al Qaeda terrorists attacked the embassy in Benghazi, Libya, resulting in the murder of the ambassador and three staff members, Obama's administration immediately began obscuring details and lying about the attacks, maintaining they were a result of a spontaneous protest over a video. Obama lied about it, Clinton lied about it, and U.N. Ambassador Rice later repeated the lies several times on news programs.

Since then the administration has been silent about the events and refuses to answer the most basic questions, continuing to conceal facts and obscure the issue. It has been learned that there were some other staff members on the grounds of the embassy during the attacks, which were carried out over a period of several hours. Obama's administration is not providing the names of these personnel and not allowing any of them to be questioned as to what actual events took place.

The Obama administration persists in hindering investigation and thwarting attempts to find the truth. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives dawdles. They are indecisive over whether to call for a formal investigation or not. The Senate, controlled by Democrats, of course, will not conduct any such probe.

Obama and his minions are liars and should be held accountable for those deaths. But they will continue to obscure facts, withhold information and lie about the events until after the 2016 election.

Remember the four Americans who died in Benghazi when Hillary Rodham Clinton runs for president.

D.B. Mitchell

“So go away now and play with the make believe guns you pretend here that you own.”

What are you – 12?

”By the way, I thought you did not pay serious attention to anything i say.”

I don’t pay any “serious” attention to your ridiculous blather, I simply respond so others can see just what an … well, you know, you are.

“Dance, groveler,…”

This is FLS’s take on anyone who actually follows the law. In his bizarre world following the law is “groveling.” Pathetic.

"So you admit change may be coming – "

Always possible, but as I said before, it may be a loooooooooong time before it happens. So congrats AN, gun grabbers may win in the year 2099. Technically you win the argument. So go away now and play with the make believe guns you pretend here that you own.

By the way, I thought you did not pay serious attention to anything i say. Yet, here you are again. Dance, groveler, I will let you know when you have my permission to stop.

“Change may be coming AN, but don't count on being around to see it happen. It may be a looooooong way off.”

So you admit change may be coming – giving up on your foolishness that it’s never going to happen I see. And it may come before the end of the year as Republicans are now flip/flopping and supporting full background checks.

Remember, your track record for predictions is abysmal – “LOL”!

"Nope, the Republican ignored the American people who favor by 90% extended background checks –"

Funny, you never seem to want to talk about the fact that it was killed by the democrats that did NOT vote for it. They chose the correct side to go with.

I guess Harry could not get his people in line.

Change may be coming AN, but don't count on being around to see it happen. It may be a looooooong way off.

Again, can't remember which name you are posting under....

"He showed you exactly where they went on the "explosives" post. Since you don't seem capable of much reading, he even gave you pictures of drums. You lose.

And I posted somewhere that Pelosi and your Dem friends funded Iraq even when some Republicans voted no. Pelosi said it was necessary to do so, the Senate passed the funding bill and the Dem Congressman had put it up for a vote, knowing it would pass the Senate. "

You should read A Serious Thought's post regarding present and past tense, it just might sink into your head.

Second, I answered your post about the funding bill, and you never acknowledged it. I will ask here...what was Congress supposed to do? Leave the soldiers overseas hanging out to dry since your hero Bush sent them over there to die on a lie?

The Kid

“90% of Americans might agree with background checks, but that wasnt the only thing in this jegislation."

You must understand, kid, the purpose of bringing any legislation to the floor is so that it can be discussed and modified if agreed upon. But since the Republicans refused to even allow the bill to be brought to the floor they blocked the will of the people whom they are supposed to represent.

“Its something that liberals wont aknowledge.”

Actually it’s something virtually impossible to acknowledge because the bill was blocked by the Republicans from being addressed on the floor of the Senate.

“He showed you exactly where they went on the ‘explosives’ post. Since you don't seem capable of much reading, he even gave you pictures of drums. You lose.”

No, I did not “lose” and you will find my answer to your question in the “Deporting a Terrorist” thread above.

To sum it up, the ISG (formed by The Criminal to find the WMD he lied about) concluded after a two year study that there were no WMD in Iraq.

“And I posted somewhere that Pelosi and your Dem friends funded Iraq even when some Republicans voted no.”

Yes, we know, the Republican were willing to leave our troops stranded in Iraq begging on the streets for food and maybe a plane ticket home. Their vote on that was typical of the disdain the Republicans hold for our military. How can you even defend those low-life’s for doing that?

“So again, you lose. Truth is truth. That vote is available on line.”

No I did not LOSE? What does that even mean? Fortunately our troops did not lose either, no thanks to the Republicans.

@ A&W

The Second Amendment states that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed upon. Putting restrictions on ammo is a means to infringe upon the people's right to be armed.

A credit check is part of a background check. That is not the entirety of what the government proposes to do.

When people enter into a contract between them selves they can agree to divulge any information that is agreeable to both parties. (Your landlord tenant credit check analogy.)

The government putting restrictions on the entire supply of guns or ammo is a violation of an already standing contract- the Constitution.

“Where did those WMD’s go. (Yea, WMD’s)”

No, it is not WMD’s, which would equate to Weapons of Mass DestructionS. And Sadam’s WMD were used by the early 1990’s after being provided by Ronald the Dim.

”Who got them, where did they go and where is your proof that they didn’t have them later.”

The United Nations inspection teams provided proof that Sadam’s WMD were gone by the early 1990s.

“I have proof they were there when we went there and discovered them.”

Provide it and no FAUX News, Glenn Beck, Whacked out drugged addicts or WND. BTW – your link is bogus.

“And please don’t claim to prove me wrong again when you don’t respond and declare it a victory.”

As I have told you before I ALWAYS respond to every goofy post directed at me – if they do not appear put the blame on the web-admin BECAUSE I always respond.

“We are all sick and tired of you riding in on your fighter jet declaring victory when you haven’t won jack.”

Who is “we?” Please be specific, thank you. And where you ever got the idea that I have a fighter jet is … well, just goofy. But that’s your hallmark, posts that make are always goofy.

Rootie,

“You DO realize 90% of the US population is 9 out of 10 people, correct? You also understand we live in a Representative Republic, correct?”

Yes.

“Again, if 90% WANTED it, you would have seen a 90% vote by the Senate.......Which we did not see.”

Nope, the Republican ignored the American people who favor by 90% extended background checks – as I have shown you earlier. why you refuse to recognize poll after poll indicating what the American people want is beyond me.

“The People Won. Deal with it.”

No they did not. The corporations won because our supposed “representatives” in the Senate were paid off to protect their corporate masters. The American people lost – again – thanks to the Republicans.

“While obama did not personally do this, to me it follows a pattern of people who have used forgery and anything they possibly can to help obama get elected illegally.”

So neither Obama or Hillary had anything to do with this situation that took place in one Indiana county, right? But in your bizarre world he is responsible for a few forged signatures on nominating petitions – signatures that “benefited” both Obama and Mrs Clinton. Your pathetic hatred for our president is definitely a sign of … well, you know.

I notice that you failed to mention the Republicans and their fraudulent petition drive that shut down voter registration in FIVE STATES during the 2012 election. And you never seem to mention the voter fraud case involving the Republican in Las Vegas who voted twice for Willard the Money Hider. Why is that?

Really.

Where did those WMD’s go. (Yea, WMD’s)

Who got them, where did they go and where is your proof that they didn’t have them later. I have proof they were there when we went there and discovered them. But where is your proof they weren’t there.

Here is a link to just one of many caches. I got more if you need them but only after you provide proof they weren’t there. http://www.jeffhead.com/iraqchems.htm

And please don’t claim to prove me wrong again when you don’t respond and declare it a victory.

We are all sick and tired of you riding in on your fighter jet declaring victory when you haven’t won jack.

Let's not forget the Russian Intellegence had warned Obama's administration about the Boston duo but he chose to ignore the warning.

@A&W

It is so typical, the way you gun grabbers try to prove your point for violating the second amendment rights by comparing them to other situations that have absolutely no similarity.

First, the Constitution does not guarantee anyone the right to rent a house. The Constitution does protect our right to own guns.

Second, when the owner of a property wants to run a "background" check on a prospective tenant, what you are calling a background check is actually a credit check, which is a prudent thing to do when entering into a contract where one is granted tenancy rights to real property based upon their promise to fulfill paying rent.

This in no way can be compared to the government deciding it can check the background of citizens before "granting" them permission to own a gun. The right to own a gun is not granted by the government. It is guaranteed via the Constitution.

@ Anson. Thank you for admitting Saddam HAD WMD. You may be the First Liberal EVER to admit that.

One more little thing....If you have a pesticide plant(which Saddam had many) you can make any..ANY Nerve agent easily. Ask the Ranger battalion that was dosed with Atropine by the Turkish border when they were exposed to what they found in those 3 mobile labs. Unlike you, I have close friends that were boots on the ground...not playing keyboard cowboy like you. 2 of them are still dealing with the effects of the VX residue they were exposed to.

And to both you and A&W...

You DO realize 90% of the US population is 9 out of 10 people, correct? You also understand we live in a Representative Republic, correct?

If you do not know, that means we are a government by the people, for the people. Again, if 90% WANTED it, you would have seen a 90% vote by the Senate.......Which we did not see.

You can cry all you want about not getting your way....

The People Won. Deal with it.

Just so you know the people didn't vote, it was the GOP ( party of no ).. Kinda sucks that we have to have a intensive background check to rent a house/apartment, a background check when applying for a job to better you life.. but there's no way they will agree to a background check to get AMMO..

Not Benghazi but more obama garbage.

A trial is underway for a former Democratic official and Bd of Elections worker who are accused of being part of a plot concerning whether obama, as a 2008 candidate, submitted enough legit sigs to have legally qualified for the primary.

The charges are concerning an illegal scheme to fake the petitions for both obama and Hillary Clinton to qualify in Indiana. Butch Morgan and Dustin Blythe face multiple felony forgery charges. Morgan, the mastermind allegedly ordered Dem officials and workers to fake names and signatures needed for both to qualify.

Two former Board of Elections officials already pleaded guilty and could tesity against the other two. Beverly Shelton allegedly forged the petitions, pleaded guilty in March and Pam Brunette, pleaded guilty in April to forgery charges and more.

Of the 500 signatures needed, nine of the petition pages for obama were forged and had they been known, he would not have qualified. While obama did not personally do this, to me it follows a pattern of people who have used forgery and anything they possibly can to help obama get elected illegally.

I said he HAD WMD in the early 1990s which meant he did NOT have them when The Criminal lied us into a war. You see we are talking about different periods of time.

“And again, if 90% of the Population WANTED Gun control changes....THEY WOULD HAVE PASSED. … And the PEOPLE have spoken through our Senators by VOTING DOWN ILLEGAL CONTROLS on our guns.”

You are just being deliberately obtuse. The American people – by a 90% margin wanted background checks – Senate Republicans bowed to the will of their corporate masters and once again screwed the American people.

“The People Won. Get over it.”

No, corporate America won the American people lost – face it.

“oh and by you making light of my penname, it proves I've struck a nerve with you....Mayhaps due to the fact I'm right? We all know how Liberals love being proven wrong...”

Nope, no nerves struck here and I love being proven wrong, however no rightie has been able to do it.

@ Anson...

Ok, so you admit he HAD WMD, but in the same breath say he DIDN'T have WMD. Interesting Duality there. Which personality will you use today?

Last I looked, People DIE in Wars. Joining the Military means you may have to DIE in a War. And for your information, over 1200 people a year DIE in the military during PEACETIME. Losing 3000+ in over 4 years in a War seems like a REDUCTION in deaths from a Training Rotation.

And again, if 90% of the Population WANTED Gun control changes....THEY WOULD HAVE PASSED. That's how our Representative Republic works my friend. Majority Rules. And the PEOPLE have spoken through our Senators by VOTING DOWN ILLEGAL CONTROLS on our guns. I forgot...Majority Rules only applies to Liberal force feeding of "laws" they deem fit for the rest of us....

The People Won. Get over it. )

Oh and by you making light of my penname, it proves I've struck a nerve with you....Mayhaps due to the fact I'm right? We all know how Liberals love being proven wrong...

“Every Intellegence agency in the world believed Saddam Hussein had WMD, it wasn't something Bush dreamed up.”

Actually that is not true and many intelligence agencies reported the entire WMD lies as being … lies … and The Criminal went ahead and lied to us anyway.

“Obama hasn't delivered on anything he's promissed and if we had an honest media we would "all" know it.”

Ben Laden dead. Lower taxes. War in Iraq brought to an end. Health care for every American. Want more, just ask.

CAPT GOOFY

“When will these people accept the fact that we have a corrupt president and administration and quit trying to cover up by changing the subject.....it ain't working and getting old!”

What is getting old is the non-stop litany of hatred towards our president with no actual facts to back up the nonsensical posts that appear here day in and day out. Just irrational spewing and THAT is getting old!

“A few thousand Kurds proved Iraq had WMD in the form of Sarin and VX.”

Yes, and records indicate those were expended by the mid-1990s

“Or do you conveniently forget history?”

Our memories are very clear and we remember it was Ronald the Dim who gave Saddam those weapons – that were expended by the early 1990s.

“Oh and in regards to the deaths in Iraq...Look at the Deaths that take place in the military in a normal training rotation.”

So in the bizarre world of the righties wars don’t kill our troops.

“Oh and this week, the PEOPLE won. The Senate vote proved that. Get over it.”

Actually the American People – who support expanded background checks by 90% - did not win. The winners were the corporate puppet masters of the Republicans. The American People lost – again.
