"Some people know everything, but that's all they know."

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

Hillary Rodham Clinton

When Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) asked outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to explain how it was that the Obama administration stood by an absurd story for two weeks after Benghazi, Mrs. Clinton indignantly shouted “What difference, at this point, does it make.” She was talking about whether the attack on our consulate in Benghazi was a preplanned terrorist attack or a spontaneous incident. It occurred to me, however, that this was the perfect way to deflect many criticisms in contemporary American Society. (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

    It make a huge difference to the American people. It makes a huge difference to the families of the love ones that were murdered. Perfectly rational I think not, you can not but a price tag on these men and if it were your son or dad you would not want to be lied too. It was a cover up from the get go and as far as I am concern a lie. How can you trust the President or the WH every again to tell the truth. It makes a difference to me because I value every single one of our soldiers or representative for our country. Clinton point is not well taken by me or the parents of the dead and many others.

    It doesn’t make any difference to the American people. If it did, the story would have grown legs and led to the demise of the President before the election – but it didn’t, and it won’t.

    It ultimately makes no difference to the families because they are left in the same identical state regardless of the reasons the Administration had. Up to this point, not a single person has been able to point out that a different story would have led to a different outcome, ergo, that is just another red herring.

    Of course you can put a price on them. Actuarians do it all the time, and so does the military. These guys were in a dangerous profession, and chose to work in a dangerous area of the world. They were perfectly clear on the risks, and while they may not have appreciated the specific risks of that evening, there can be no doubt they were clear on the fact that they were alone and would not be able to rely on the cavalry popping over the hill to save them in a remote outpost of a country torn by political and military strife.

    It was not a cover up, nor has any evidence been demonstrated that there was even any need for a cover up. The Administration did nothing wrong per se, and the men didn’t die because of action or inaction by the Administration.

    You actually have the moxie to ask us how anyone can trust the President or the White House after Dumbya Bush dragged us into a war based upon false assertions about weapons of mass destruction!!?? Thousands of Americans died for absolutely nothing, as did hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi men, women and children, and we spent $810,888,296,871 for this boondoggle. In comparison, this isn’t even a blip on the global screen.

    Finally, you can sit at home and “value every single one of our soldiers or representative for our country,” but that is not the manner in which the affairs of state are managed, and certainly not the projection of US diplomatic missions. There is an inherent risk in occupying a remote post. There are at least 100 US missions right this very moment, which would lose every single person in the mission if they were attacked by a company-strength command with adequate weaponry. There is, in fact, nothing whatsoever that can be done to prevent it. All the rest of this whining and breast-beating, while emotionally satisfying, is completely meaningless in the Realpolitik of international affairs.

    Secretary Clinton’s point may be difficult to understand, but it is the reality and will remain so regardless of who is running the Administration – particularly as long as Cantor and his buddies keep refusing to fund additional expenditures for the protective services!

    I too am confused how all these people forget what Bush and company did to young men and women of this country just to advance the profits of companies that profit from war. Iraq was all ready checkmated, no fly zones north or south, anything over ten foot off the ground got piled up. They could trade oil for medicine. They hated the Saudi’s who by the way were chiefly responsible for the attacks on the WTC, why didn’t Bush and Cheaney obliterate Saudi Arabia? Instead the day of the attack, Bush moved the heavens and the earth to get a Saudi family airborne, when Americans couldn’t fly who needed medical attention. Fox News is like a diaper that is about 6 hours past needing to be changed, it is nasty, foul, stinky and if left on could be considered abuse.

    You people forget the current administration is trying to extricate us from the entanglements that Bush got us in to. Bin Laden, and Kadafy are gone, we are out of Iraq and trying to get out of Afghanistan. The Conservatives are trying their best to keep us over there in North Africa, Somalia, Iran, and Pakistan. So many needless lives have been lost, so many young men and women disabled and disfigured, so many will have trouble sleeping the rest of their lives, thanks to Bush and you don’t have any problems with his administration? Obama is trying to get folks home and out of harms way and you folks are pissed, we haven’t lost enough lives? You really point out how you feel and what is really bothering you about who is President. Because logic defies you not understanding unless you have one underlying issue. How many innocent men, women and children have died because of Bush? How would you feel if most of your family was killed as collateral damage from a war trumped up by imposters to the throne? Bush also ruined the best Conservative they had in Powell. They made him lie and pimp himself in front of the UN.
    I am no rocket scientist, but if I see this, why don’t reasonably intelligent people see it? There logically can only be one other reason, you keep protesting it’s not because he is a black man, but what else could it be? The facts are just to easy to dig. You either let others do you’re thinking or you are prejudice. You say not, but it makes no sense any other way.

    Kenneth as it was detailed by the Joint Chiefs if the State Department had requested for more Security to be at these location within Africa and elsewhere they would of provided the Security without charging the State Department. Actually the Marines is supose to provide Security at the Embassies and Consulates after they had been stood up (that is without the Ambassor there) Standing up includes proper security walls, CCTV, Hotlines to Washington and other Quick reaction items before the Marines show up.

  13. Reposted from LinkedIn says:

    Howie, that is a supposition, not a fact.

    Furthermore, the State Department had already requested more security, but that still misses the entire point. Even if the consular mission was fully staffed and manned including the Marine Security Guard Detachment, a company-strength unit attacking with adequate weapons would only have ensured more dead than four. Our consulates are not so hardened as to withstand such an engagement, and that’s all there is to it. Now, whether the Marines on that watch alone could have protected the facility is at best conjecture, and of course those off duty would not have been in the compound necessarily.

    The main point is all this second-guessing why this happened and seeking to blame the Administration completely fails to take into consideration that all the other personnel would have represented would have been additional targets, and likely dead ones.

      Allison, the cover up that is being referred to is the fact that they knew about the requests for added security, It doesn’t make sense that while a country is at civil war we would even stay there in the first place. We did stay and they asked for added personnel for security and they got denied and put off, then we had Mr. Joe Bidden in the VP debate flat out lie to America’s face “We Did Not Know”. When in fact they did and evidence came out for that.

      Other than that I can’t think of anything else that would be covered up. To me it would have made sense to either pull out our dignitaries from a hostile fire zone, or give them added security knowing that a country was in civil chaos.

    As you grow older you will be able to spot people like Paul who is using this TV time to advance his stature before 2016. He is smart enough (maybe I give him to much credit) to realize the Mrs. Clinton can’t and doesn’t have the time to read the thousands of communiques that go and come through the state department. He used that giant leap to even make the stretch he could ever be President. It’s a known fact his Dad Ron only kept his name in the hat so the Paul name was fresh until his son can run. Ron could never make it as a Libertarian candidate, nor can anyone else. Running for President as a Libertarian is like whizzing out of the door on a helicopter, it’s going to be messy, and you will fail.
    His Dad is from my town, he started out as a OB/Gyn. He looked at enough female equipment he decided to go to Congress and work beside them. Many people around here had nurses deliver their children because unless you were somebody, he seemed to be a little late. My first wife was having an issue and I wanted to talk to him about it. He had a nurse that screened everyone before he would give you an audience. She says what is your question, I said if I wanted you to know, I would have asked you, are you a Doctor? She said no , and no you can’t talk to him. We got another Doctor, the one that used to be his partner, but split when he was doing all of his and many of Dr. Ron Paul’s.
    Young Paul doesn’t care either way, he was pandering for TV exposure to line up for 2016. He is wasting his time, and looks silly and childish.

I promise though Jeffery, it will turn out better than the Bush legacy. They don’t rate Presidents accurately for some 10 to 15 years after they leave office, and rightly so.
    Bush will have the distinction of being the worst President ever. I never gave Nixon to much gas, but even he was better than Bush. Obama has the possibility of being more popular than Bubba, and Bubba was the best after FDR.

He said this under oath at a House and Senate hearings 2 months ago. He was told that it was a peaceful gathering but the people inside of the Consulate were screaming for help.

    Of course you went all over the map with you’re rant. Many things Obama has done or not done in his first 4 years are directly because of who he followed. Bush had many programs and policies we all were subject to i.e. taxes, education, infrastructure, defense contracts that affect us even today. Also the agreements signed onto by coalition forces with promises of aide or loans for air space over countries not wild about us.
    Your not being able to find a job has much to do with Bush and his failed politics and a trumped up war. How better of would many be if we had not landed a boot on Iraq? Saddam may have been killed by his own people, or died of natural causes. He could have saved us the trouble of warring with Iran. So we lose troops over Bush lies in Iraq, then had Romney been elected we would be going to Iran. How did we gain as a nation with the Iraq experience or Afghanistan? If we had done nothing, but strengthened our security in the U.S. we would have saved money and still had our children spared of war.

    I am having a good day Jeffery, but I don’t want this remedial conversation about this, do some digging for goodness sake. I don’t begrudge you your opinions, I just wish they were more pragmatic.

    “It doesn’t make any difference to the American people. If it did, the story would have grown legs and led to the demise of the President before the election – but it didn’t, and it won’t” – Kenneth Bobu

    – Some legs take longer to grow when there’s a media trying to keep them from growing.
    – Sometimes legs have grown but are invisible to those that have the same type of issues and therefore choose to deny them.
    – Finally, if legs grow or not, is the poorest standard for truth I’ve ever heard.

    To your remark:
    “It ultimately makes no difference to the families because they are left in the same identical state regardless of the reasons the Administration had. Up to this point, not a single person has been able to point out that a different story would have led to a different outcome, ergo, that is just another red herring.” – Kenneth Bobu

    – it makes whole lot of difference. People go to court everyday seeking justice for loved ones murdered. The reasons behind, the why (motive) and the how it happend allows for those that have lost someone know that others or god forbid another one of their very own won’t have to go through this again.
    – had it been your loved one, .i.e., child, wife, partner whatever it is that you have, I believe you’d be singing a different tune and you would certainly not refer to them as “fellas”.
    as you did in your comment:
    “In fact, at this point it makes absolutely no difference whatsoever. We couldn’t prevent it, and the fellas are dead. Her point is well-taken, and perfectly rational.” Kenneth Bobu

    Bermudez, in the absence of the “truth” you are seeking, there is no story. Your assertion that because there is no story, there is a coverup versus there simply being no story because there is no misconduct, is the fundamental weakness in your argument.

    Americans can die in the course of duty without any malfeasance on the part of anyone in the Administration. That doesn’t mean there is a coverup, or that there even was anything to cover up. Your claim the media has colluded is wholly without merit, and you are unable to back it up with any facts whatsoever.

    People don’t go to court so seek justice for loved one’s murdered. That is a matter for the state. Individuals don’t go to court, nor do they sue for loved ones murdered. Rather, the state does so when they have determined that a crime has been committed. That isn’t the case here, and certainly while a crime was committed in Benghazi, there is no defendant in the Administration, nor should there be.

    You see, Bermudez, your emotions are in the way of the facts here. We all mourn the loss of our diplomats in Libya. Yet, looking for a scapegoat for an act not perpetrated by Americans, and where Americans are not to blame for either the act or its outcome, is just plain folly.

    There is nothing whatsoever skewed about my values with respect to life and/or truth, nor does this have anything to do with political parties. After all, I didn’t blame Reagan for the attack on the Marine Barracks in Beirut, nor did I blame Clinton for the attack on the U.S.S. Cole. This isn’t about partisan politics – except for the fact that the right has decided to make it so. That is one of our biggest problems in America today.

    There is currently no nuclear weapons capability in Iran. There is currently no nuclear weapons delivery system in Iran that could deliver a weapon to the U.S.A. Finally, there is no evidence that even if Iran had such a weapon, that they would in their right minds even threaten to deliver it against our nation.

    Hindsight is indeed 20/20 vision.

    As for the bizarre notion that Iran is busy making dirty bombs to launch against the U.S.A., well, you’re going to have to come up with a heck of a lot more to call a dirty bomb a nuclear bomb – they aren’t even remotely the same in size, impact, or danger. Furthermore, you’ve yet to demonstrate that there actually exists a plan to produce dirty bombs and deliver them against the U.S.A., which is not as easy as you think.

    Remember, you’d still have to get that material here, build the device, deliver and detonate it. If it were easy, it would have already been done by some other folks a long time ago.

Conservatives on a witch hunt will surely implement another investigation in an effort to make this an election issue in 2014, a year in which they are worried about losing whatever foothold they have left.

It took an additional 2 hours for Obama to approve a security team there. And them an additional hour to send Special Forces in there to help. Here is a problem with the aftermath to all of this. There was a drone over head attack still going on.

It took over two weeks for the press Security to admit that it was an “Act of Terrorism.” So Bob here is the problem that I have, who was right in this was it a terrorist attack or was it a peaceful protest which for over two weeks President Obama and Administration was calling it.

    Lets also see here the Attack in Mali has been linked to the members that attacked our Consulate Bob. What has he done or the Administration done to get these members to justice? The Answer is Not a thing because of if he did get them then his policies are seen as a failure. Remember this line from Biden and then Obama? “Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive.” And this from the Egypt Protesters “Obama! Obama! There are still a billion Osamas!”

    Obama’s Foreign Polices are seen as a joke by our allies and opens the door for more attacks by our enemies Bob!
