Skip to comments.Boehner Ducks: Should Congress Probe Why No Marines Protected Diplomatic Posts in Libya?
Posted on 09/23/2012 12:24:09 PM PDT by Olog-hai
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would not say whether Congress should investigate why no Marines were stationed at the diplomatic posts in Libya, where a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed, and who made that decision, saying only that he suspects the ongoing investigation by the FBI will take a look at that.
On September 11, in what the Obama administration now says was a terrorist attack, the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and a nearby safe house were attacked and Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other embassy personnel were killed. There were no Marines stationed at the consulate or at the main U.S. embassy in Tripoli, despite the fact that Libya was in political transition after a revolt that overthrew dictator Muammar Gaddafi in October 2011.
At a Capitol Hill press conference on Friday, CNSNews.com asked Boehner, Speaker Boehner, do you think Congress should investigate why there were no Marines at our diplomatic posts in Libya and who made that decision? Boehner said, I suspect that part of the investigation underway will take a look at that. While we typically have Marine detachments at our embassies, that isnt always the case when it comes to our consulates. And so Im sure there will be a review of that and a discussion about whether thats wise going forward.

Boehner is about as useless as tits on a bore hog.
Boehner is/was/and will always be an Über-RINO. Never a leader, and never concerned with right or wrong.
I think ‘boar hog’ is what you were going for - a ‘bore hog’ would be his personality type, you might confuse somebody.
If we have to make our Embassies into forts, there is no point in our being there.
Or as useless as a football bat.
He should tell the truth because I believe he Knows there was a Covert CIA operation going on that has now been blown.The 2 FORMER Navy Seals were working for a Different agency,they were not Security for Stevens. Stevens Embassy office was in Tripoli Not Benghazi,what was he doing there with No security? Now ambassador Stevens was the go between for the rebels who were trying to Oust Gahdafi,remember we did not Know who the rebels were? They were Alqueda,and Stevens Brokered the deal to give them Guns,so what if Stevens was also CIA and was in Benghazi to try and retrieve those weapons and the Arab security team Hired there By Hillary and the State Department sold out Stevens and the rest is History. If you were Obama would you want to talk about that?
Obama is the one to blame. He can’t point the finger anymore. He denied security because he is weak with foreign policy. He denied ammo because he didn’t want to offend the locals. He and no other is responsible for the deaths of our diplomats. Obama has blood on his hands and nobody else.
In some places they cane folks, usually for being criminals but sometimes in necessary cases a turd like this gets a good caneing.
Man boehner needs a serious ass whoopin or caneing as I would have it.
I think that there needs to be an investigation about whether this guy has anything between his legs. We already know that he’s a freak - an invertebrate that somehow still stands.
Seriously, why does he ALWAYS avoid any investigations of the Dims? Who’s paying hgim, or has the goods on him?
Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t want Marines on the ground in a third world country protecting anything that it isn’t militarily possible to defend. That’s not being a defender, it’s just being bait.
Boehner is so deep in the pocket of the Dems that it is criminal.
Sometimes foolish policy costs lives. This is a perfect example of that rule.
