    Answering those questions could prevent another attack like 9/11. Why are you against that?

    Think about it - if British intel discovered that an attack against benghazi was probabale and sent that information to U.S. intelligence but the analyst that received it was too busy watching online porn to disseminate the information to the secretary of state, wouldn't that be important to know, and correct?

    The only thing it reminds me of is the monumental hypocrisy of the teabagger that has no problem wasting millions on nothing yet wants to cut spending everywhere else.

    Mustard gas and other blister agents can be made quickly using basic materials - it's 100 year old technology.
    I understand you think the Iraq War was a noble and justified endeavor, and if it wasn't, well, Hillary voted for it, right?

    So, for 2 years this question has been hanging out there, and no one has ever fucking asked the Red Cross or the British where they got their information, WTF?

    Amazing how people who think we have wasted money on investigating something that occurred less than two years ago want us to be outraged by something that occurred 11 years ago.

    Allow yourself to recognize consistency.

    The job of the press is to confront power and seek truth.

    If you are upset that the Press could not expose the absence of WMDs in Iraq, then your desire for better information is the same as my desire for recognizing that there were other theories of WHY Benghazi occurred and that the press bent over for the White House and did NOT challenge the uniformity of the White House spin.

    We are brothers in this matter.

    INSIST THAT THE PRESS DO ITS JOB!
    Thanks from Telecaster

    Nope not at all. I never liked or supported Bush or either war. My point is that Bush didn't Lie - he and all concerned, including Clinton and Kerry considered the potential threat represented by Saddam based on his use of WMDs against his own people, and acted pro-actively. To say there were no WMDs is ill-informed. Warehouses full of NBC suits and masks, all new, all fresh packaged were found. Manufactured WMDs were not found - but the will to use them and the ability to manufacture them quickly both existed.

    Not to say that I support Bush - hated him as a president.

    Maybe they have and that is some of the information that the administration is refusing to disseminate.

    If there is a real, solid, official answer out there to the question, I can't find it - can you?

    Or maybe the one who received it and needed to make the decision on it.was too busy sneaking around and hiding his affair from his wife, to notice.
