Prosecute incompetence

  • Follow Letters

After watching the hearing of the Benghazi attack on our embassy, I can’t help but to think that the Democrats think the American people are so naïve and gullible they would believe anything they are told.

The Democrats who questioned the three so-called whistleblowers tried their best to perpetuate the lies that we were told as if they were the truth. Each partisan Democrat challenged the three men as if their facts were questionable, even though they were involved during the attack on our embassy during real time.

It’s typical of the Democrats to try to rewrite the truth as they see it to misinform the public. This has been an ongoing method of operation ever since Barack Obama became president.

If you lie, then lie with force, so anyone questioning the lie will back down, such as in the case where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blasted the committee questioning her when she bellowed, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” She basically went on the offensive to deny a real answer of her culpability, which brings me back to the hearing.

The pathetic attempts by the Democrats to skewer the truth at the hearing backfired. Gregory Hicks, Mark Thompson and Eric Nordstrom didn’t back down. Their nonpartisan dedication and loyalty to their jobs was impeccable, which Democrats tried to deny.

As a combat Marine veteran, the most despicable act committed by Clinton and the Democrats was nonfeasance of office – they failed to do anything. What the public should demand is charges of malfeasance in office, as well as the above, to be brought against Clinton and all who lied to cover up their incompetence that got our ambassador and his men killed.

How far back would you like to go on the prosecutions for attacks and deaths at diplomatic missions? One, two, three, four administrations? As far back as someone is alive to prosecute?

Well, I can think of only two embassy attacks and deaths that

where the result of incompetence on the part of a president: Iran and Benghanzi. Both of which were under democratic presidents. If one goes by the number of attacks the statistics are skewed because of the attacks in the Green Zone in Iraq during the liberation.

Bod, once again you missed the point. The lying and the cover up is what needs to be prosecuted. Nixon was impeached for lying and covering up. It is no difference here.

Right on schedule. Let's try to divert from someone's wrong doing by pointing to someone else's wrong doing. These rationalizing liberals are as regular as clockwork.

Covering up what, exactly.
Unpublished

Covering up what, exactly. It's not an embassy, it's a consulate. We need to investigate why the Republicans voted not to increase security to these areas. We need to prosecute Bush and Cheney for leading us into Iraq on the basis of lies (that have been admitted by Colin Powell and others) which killed far more Americans and others than Bengazhi. Maybe while we're at it, maybe we should investigate the 11 embassy attacks under Bush.

The politicization of Benghazi by the Right continues...

It's shameful despite making sense politically. At the time, it was a 2-for-1 deal: potentially prevent the President's re-election and undermine Hillary in 2016.

But the Right has overreached. The President's job approval rating has not been hurt, Hillary is still the leading contender for 2016, and the Benghazi nontroversy is blowing up in their faces and turning into a legitimate controversy - but one that might damage the GOP for politicizing the deaths of Americans and lying about what happened.

I believe the only impeachable offence that President Obama has done is LEADING US TO BELIEVE HE WAS GOING TO GET US OUT OF AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ !

If you want to punish Hillary

If you want to punish Hillary all you have to do is remember in 2016 that when the phone rang, Hillary's answer was to "take two mortar rounds and call me in the morning".

You do not want Hillary answering the phone when lives are on the line. If Hillary thinks it will make Hillary look bad, you're a dead man.

How do you know if they are guilty if there has been no due process. That is the purpose of due process. Politicians have a habit of being wrong from time to time about their intel....Take George W. Bush and Iraq for example. But if YOU think they have the wisdom to convict and execute unilaterally, then I feel sorry for you.

Tim, Harry Reed and Pelosi has referred to Tea Party members as terrorist so I guess it is ok to execute them.

It is "beyond a shaddow of a doubt" that this "American" was guilty !! Terrorisum negates citizenship so treat him like the terrorist that he is.
