If Hillary Clinton cannot protect one Embassy how can she protect the whole country?
I'm not sure I follow this logic. Hillary Clinton wasn't responsible for an experienced diplomat's foolish decision to go with a light security detail to a turbulent area on the anniversary of 9/11. Even if she could have done anything, the closest military forces were in Italy, hours away and would have literally involved invading another sovereign nation.
I'm very sorry Mr. Stevens and his two guards were killed. However, it's not fair to continue to insist any other outcome could have been achieved beyond what had occurred beyond Mr. Steven's modifying his own decisions in advance (e.g. delaying the trip to 9/12.)
Further, using this same logic, how can Donald Trump manage our economy when he's had multiple bankruptcies? How can Donald Trump bring jobs to the US when his very own products are made everywhere but in the US? How can Donald Trump negotiate with world leaders when his temperament allows him to say foolish and childish things (often to his disadvantage)? The list goes on.
I guess Hillary could blame her ncompetence on a youtibe video if all else fails.
DowntroddenInDC: Boom! Thank you so much for your comments. I couldn't have said it better.
We have one team, and we lost. But, Hillary and Obama took down the head of Libya, and that is why Benghazi was attacked.
When a Republican-controlled Congress cuts the budget for security for embassies, tough choices have to be made. Hillary and Obama are guilty of politicizing the aftermath, but Congress gets as much responsibility for the deaths of our diplomats.
And if the family of Ambassador Stevens says you shouldn't blame Hillary for his death, who the heck are you to make such an asinine statement of blame? (http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk … r-benghazi)
And lastly, Trump has made a big deal about saying that revealing how you'd go about fighting ISIS isn't smart. But then he's critical of the mis-information used after the Benghazi attacks. Which is it? Be honest, or be covert? He's kind of a hypocrite for attacking both sides of the issue.
You should know that what not true. Stop blaming the other party, we only have one congress. They lose we lose and it doesn't matter which player made the error.
Sadly, a false narrative about Benghazi pushed by the MSM and the Dems has led some people to believe nothing could have been done in Benghazi. The Ambassador begged for more security over and over again. His pleas went unanswered. Clinton says she wasn't aware of his requests. I don't trust Hillary to handle anything when it comes to our national security. She is careless and reckless with top secret information, and she will continue to be the same if she is elected.
I don't understand this logic. Why was an experienced diplomat travelling to a contentious area on the anniversary of 9/11 with a light security detail and how exactly was that Clinton's fault? First step in avoiding this sort of issue is prevention.
Some of the e-mails have shown that he asked for protection several times and NEVER received any.

Even when they make the decisions Obama and Clinton want to blame it on the republicans. It is like when you asked your little kids who did it, their answer, it wasn't me!
Love the feedback loop. Garbage in, garbage out.
She can't. She ignored the ambassador's hundred plus requests for extra security. The White House told African Command and a commander in Italy to stand down, don't help them. The black African Command leader was actually demoted after that for repeatedly begging to go help the ambassador.
There was weapons running out of the embassy to Libyan "rebels", which they wanted to keep secret. There may or may not have been the hope of a heroic rescue of the ambassador to make Obama look good instead of rescuing him from an armed Muslim attack on that facility as well as embassies elsewhere in the Middle East.

Why do people believe that Hillary Clinton is innocent in light of her crimes while simultaneouslycriticize Donald Trump in light of his business misadventures?

What are your thoughts on Hillary being cleared of all responsibility by the Republicaninvestigative committee according to the 800 report regarding Benghazi?

The committee that is investigating Benghazi is either stupid or just naive. If you were given a week to turn over your server, what would you do? I know what I would do. I would delete all my emails or nuke the hard drive. All they are trying to do is ruin her brand...
