Rubio Challenges Clinton To “Explain Why Her Department Failed”
Cybercast News Service ^ | December 28, 2012 | Elizabeth Harrington

Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, to “explain why her department failed.”

In an editorial published on Wednesday, Rubio said the State Department Accountability Review Board (ARB) report released last week “concisely lays out much that we already knew” about the attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

“This was the premeditated work of terrorists, not a protest about a YouTube video that spun out of control,” Rubio said, adding that “the attackers employed military tactics and used rocket-propelled grenades and other heavy weapons; they also used simple weapons of opportunity, such as gasoline used to set the fire that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and Sean Smith.” …

One word. Liberals. They are the dumbest people on Earth. That’s why they are always telling each other how smart they are and giving each “trophies” at awards ceremonies and in Oslo.

lol; you beat me to it. Nevertheless, going to ping you as if I didn’t get your ping.

Voice crying in the wilderness ping.

(Elijah...and John come to mind).

Love Rubio’s voice, and heart and reason. Rubio goes on record.

“Are you all holding your breath?”

No, but he speaks, and he goes on record. I don’t get the feeling that Rubio is going to say “When” about this.

Even Issa can still hedge his bets. I don’t think Rubio has allowed himself that latitude.

Nah; you’re dead wrong there, the dumbest people on earth are Republicans,

because if they weren’t they would already have demanded that this be front page news all over this country, they would be on the floor of Congress and the Senate every day demanding a full accounting of this travesty, and they would be demanding to know WHAT OBAMA KNEW and WHEN HE KNEW IT!!!!

Just in case anyone is still unsure about what Benghazi is really about, I made a cruddy graphic.

Typical Republican (RINO) move.

Hey Rubio, cut the crap.

WHO GAVE THE ORDER TO STAND DOWN?

That's all we need to know. Then we hold that person 100% fully accountable. Trust me, no RINO or Republican "e" will ever ask that question, because they don't want to actually have to do something when they get the answer.

I am interested in seeing how the Cult worship Obama and Hillary worshipers in the Florida MEDIA handle this story.

I like Rubio. Once you meet him its hard not to really respect and like the guy.Especially after you hear him speak in person.
I think he's got a great strategy.
He knows the hard left and the DBM will go after him and try and destroy him even more than they did Palin no matter what. So,why not go on offense.
Our side should learn how to do that more often.

Great stuff,anything about zero knowing the terrorists and expecting them to capture Stevens? I heard it was all about the rescue. Weren't the terror types supposed to capture Stevens and hold him hostage so zero could rescue him? That way during a a close election zero could score more political points. That's all they care about in the regime. It's all they know.
I agree that the end game is the collapse of the dollar and a MB Mideast.

Absolutely correct.

In fact, if this had happened under a Republican administration, the press would have relentlessly had their microphones and cameras on the grieving families of these victims, demanding answers for such an “outrageous example of ineptitude.” Instead, the propogandist media scum circle the wagons for the pencil-necked, limp-wristed, narcissistic half a retard, so he can continue his “transformation” of the country unabated.

Meanwhile, the GOP demands answers from another demonic half a retard who will pull the same “I don’t recall” bull $hit it has every time it’s under oath. Pathetic.

“This was the premeditated work of terrorists...”

This was the premeditated work of traitors. Do you get it Marco? Terrorist do what terrorists do. It is our response to them (or lack thereof) that determines our subjugation to them.

TREASON - in real-time, pre-meditated, continuous, ongoing. TREASON like this republic has never seen before. (Conspiratorialists???...how much evidence do you idiots need?)

Don't tell her ahead of time what the questions will be, don't give her time (a day,week, or month) to think about an answer. Put her on the SPOT.

But, then again her only answers always is "I don't recall".

Let’s hear from those 40+ staffers who were evacuated from Begnhazi. Why are they being sequestered from Congress?

Exactly right! If the story gets out the new media gets the job done otherwise it does not exist.

Hi RG911
The attack was retaliation for our CIA arming the Muslim Brotherhood's Anti-Assad movement. The Russians either sponsored or orchestrated an Iranian based Pro-Assad group of terrorists to shut down our operation permanently.

At least two (possibly three) well armed and trained teams of one hundred executed a coordinated attack on both the consulate and the formerly secret CIA safe-house located nearby.

This is the real reason no rescue attempt was made. Russia had satellite photos of our entire Libya gun-running operation. We were busted.

This is Obama's Cold War. He will continue to use others to turn the entire middle east over to the Muslim Brotherhood, but he will not engage Russia directly. Russia in turn will continue to protect it's assets using Iraian-based terrorists. Any direct confrontation by either of us is an admission of guilt/involvement. The appearance of keeping his hands clean is much more important to Obama than a few American's losing their lives.

All the while Obama will continue to adamantly lie to the American people to cover himself, even if he has to look like a idiot while placing blame on YouTube.

It's truly disgusting, isn't it?
