Twitter discussions? Great! I don't do Twitter and don't want to, but PLEASE everyone that DOES do twitter - TWEAT away.

I want this election to go to Mittens/Ryan far beyond anyone’s imagination. This fannywipe in the White Hut continues to say vote early, vote early. No kidding you @#$^#$ - the truth is slowly coming out. Sickening. Sept. 11 was WEEKS and WEEKS ago.

TC - what are your thoughts on this question ?

Is POTUS Constitutionally required to aid a U.S. Ambassador in peril ?

That is, not a contractor, not a soldier, but an Ambassador.

Any Constitutional scholars / military out there with experience on this question ?

I AGREE with You 100%, as I came to the same conclusion...Ambassador Stevens was Intentionally HIT!

My Question is....WHY?!

I’ve read theories / pretty good sources they said / that the consulate in Benghazi was a training spot for jihadists and Islamists running guns into Syria. The meeting with Turkey on 9/11 in Benghazi may have had something to do with the fact that Russia knew this, even had satelite photos of the training and it all went south. Barky was trying to help the Muslim Brotherhood (Huma Weiner’s mother and brother are HIGH ups in the MB). The plot thickens.

Barky said he wanted to fundamentally transform this country. Well you are seeing it right before your eyes.

I do NOT believe all the conspiracy theories about Stevens.

While it seems to be true that Obama's admin. sent in arms to the rebels to help Ghaddfi be taken out, and now worry about the whereabouts of same, this was about only one thing.

Benghazi was about Obama choosing, willfully, to let Americans die rather than go after Muslims and be seen as a protector of Americans, which is only his prime job as CIC. It was about his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and his preference of all things Muslim.

People, he just plain thinks the US has it coming and he intends to help bring it about. His Presidency is about pay back time for this "evil" country which he and the Mooche use as a debit card for their royal style of living.

It is waaay past impeachment time. He has broken with our Constitution so many times, he should have been forcibly pulled up way before now by the Congress.

High crimes and misdemeanors. This was a call as Commander in Chief. Based on the ‘fog of war’ (actually the fog of political risk), time delay, possible political fallout overseas, etc. etc., no. POTUS has to have discretion and be given the capacity to make these decisions. Doesn’t rise to a Constitutional basis for impeachment IMHO.

Certainly want this exposed so the facts come out, especially before the election but even after. Delta Force was 2 hours away and Americans were left to die? Horrible. Horrible decision and horrible President.

Impeachable offense? No.

Now, that’s the actual events.

Did someone in the administration lie under oath?

Were they instructed to lie under oath?

Obama apparently lied in speeches and to media, but that’s not a criminal offense.

If, however, in closed hearings or in any situation where sworn testimony was taken that member of the administration lied they face criminal responsibility. If the lying was ordered by a superior up the chain, the superior is responsible.

Watergate wasn’t just a break in, remember. It was the coverup that collapsed the Nixon presidency. Nixon knew after the fact and ordered various criminal acts (perjury, destruction of evidence, etc.).

We don’t know what’s gone on so far. We’ll find out...

Treason is such an old-fashioned word.

What do you think of presidents who swear to defend and uphold the Constitution and yet want to promote a one-world government? You don’t think that is treason?

Or do you think that this one-world government will have the US Constitution as its principle set of rules?

Of corse, a deal with a Mexican cartel (fast and furious) or Islamic extremists seems a bit nutty.

I am meditating about this whole mess....

Here is the problem....what to do about Syria....

Knocking off Assad is a win over Iran.....

But he can't commit troops.

So how about using Gaddafis Armory to arm the chosen "good" rebels in Syria...maybe even help facilitate some of the loyal Sunnis in Libya if they want to go do a Jihad.

But he has to be coy about it.( one could argue on that point)

But Al-Queda is not one of the chosen groups and they are fighting there too and they would really like to have those weapons.

So how about giving Obama a headache and threaten ( they always threaten) him.....but he is kind of slow to get the message.

So here we are......

Now what?

I hope Ham comes out and talks. Panetta also, when I last saw Panetta discussing this, it seemed to me that he wanted to say something on disclosing this, and I sensed he was VERY AFRAID.

Hopefully some of these people will go to ISSA, ask for PROTECTION and TELL ALL they know.

If Panetta still has an ounce of decency left in his soul, he will do just that.

Obama and his enablers have some, and probably enough to control, high ranking military military persons in their pockets. I’m thinking of the likes of Powell and his aide, Dempsey, and that butcher of Belgrade Clarke and the judges at the court martial of Col. Lakin. This is a disturbing reality and something that has to be rectified. I don’t expect any of these military persons to do anything to remove Obama. If something did occur Boehner would be in line but as for me Boehner does not deserve to be POTUSA or would do any good needed for the Nation as to changing the outlook.

The Taliban did not exist until 1994-6 after the demise of the USSR. Omar had been around, obviously, but was unknown. But the rest of them were barely more than an itch in their father's crotch when the USSR invaded Afghanistan.

The Taliban did not come about as a force for fighting the Soviets, but much later, in the aftermath of the war, in much the same way as the mafia takes over urban areas where crime has become so rampant that people look to anyone to restore some form of order. The mafia "helps" by providing locals with desirable skills or assets a number which they can call if they need help. Woe to anyone who calls it. They will get help but it comes with an everlasting obligation to pay protection money, or to provide services illegally. In the case of the Taliban, they appeared in the form of "students" and "youths" led by old Mullah Omar in the outlying regions during the period the new post-Soviet government, having just ousted the last Soviet puppet, was trying to get on its feet in Kabul. (Its defense minister was Shah Ahmed Massood- and Massood was the guy to whom our aid, stingers, and such had flowed. He was the guy al Qaeda, by then hosted by the Taliban, had assassinated on Sept 9, 2011.) Of course what the Taliban were really doing was winning the hearts of locals by toppling the weaker warlords and taking their territory and business for themselves, developing a monopoly on opium.

The new government had a pretty good grip on Kabul but was wobbly because of the presence of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, who was the apparent favorite of the pro-Pakistan folks in the state dept as a "stronger horse" than Massood. But Pakistan was determined to destabilize the new government further out of fear it might have relations with India. Pakistan discovered the Taliban as they were forming and noted they were initially very popular in areas where there was as yet no law enforcement or army, and chose to provide them with vehicles, funds and weapons, using them to gain control of Afghanistan's roads, such as they were.

Gulbuddin Hekmatyar as we know later joined up with al Qaeda. Now, al Qaeda had been around since 1988, older than the taliban, but in its early stages was based in Pakistan, Sudan and finally in 1996 Afghanistan. It formed out of MAK, Azzam's organization, after OBL got in a spat with Azzam and Azzam turned up dead.

Guys, I t’s pretty clear we have the full story now. Barack Obama is guilty of lying to the public following the attack and he also made the decesion not to send in reinforcements. As reprehensible as this is, what exactly is he guilty of? One day 50 years from now it may come out that people thought Obama was an ass and indecisive uncer crunch time but, again how is this a big crime? Personally this is the exact type of leadership I would expect from Obama. Perhaps the Congress will drag some more details out of the White House in time but, the bottom line is this is in the voters hand. If they elect an incompetent, then that’s it....as painful as that sounds.

The White House Situation Room has a list of what's called Essential Elements of Friendly Information. That's the military's acronym for it, but they would have a similar thing, a critical information list. Certain things go right to the person that's standing next to the president, both military and civilian leadership. So he would have known within minutes or it's supposed to be informed within minutes because an ambassador is a four-star equivalent, very high, very important person, you know, represents the president and essentially is the president's -- you know, is the surrogate of the president in that country. So the White House cannot deny that the president knew immediately.

Don't forget Putin in this mix. Russia is as much a backer of Assad as is Iran. I found it strange at best when Romney ripped Obama over Putin/Russia, in the last debate. I think so many invitations got sent to out for this planned rumble in Benghazi, that only we the American people were shocked. I think there was the expectation for demonstrations all over the Muslim world once the promotions and apologies began over a known commodity called 'an offensive video'.

I read early on that documents were taken, like 'oil contracts', and God only knows what else. Until we have the laundry list of what is now missing there is no way to know who benefited the most. We all know that four Americans became sacrificial lambs, we just do not know yet for what price.

I’ll be happier if the Marxist stays out of Syria, (knowing he won’t). Romney will make much better decisions.

I have no idea what the Marxist’s regime is exactly doing in Syria, because he lies. I’m just praying for our guys.

That's already happening; it's part of this story but was already public for a while.

There is nothing secret about who is behind all of these revolutions, everyone knows the CIA, jihadists and various non-government "globalist" organizations have been working on these plans to replace the "despotic" regimes.

The "revolutions" have all been in the works for years. The new leaders are all people backed by elitest think tanks. If you're a member of the Council on foreign Relations and you're keeping up, you're aware of all the efforts by these groups and the CIA to "facilitate" various islamic fighters to do the overthrows. It's the big "democracy" push that started kicking into high gear under GWB.

U.S. and Russia are having a tussle in Syria through proxies; Russia was moving in weapons as well, last I read.

You ask questions many of us have equally equivalent questions on.
And then one must consider in the whole. Just as one example, how Putin is really feeling good about his new powers.
How does primarily the Russians want this all to turn out.

We must keep in mind the Russian Bear at all times. To often neglected in mid-east discussions at this site and elsewhere.
I'm very troubled as how this nation's foreign affairs policies have "leaned" over the past few decades.
The partial exception being during Reagan's watch to some degree.

Your question is so complicated if viewed from many different perspectives.
I'm not dogging out on the question. But what can we say that would in some way put a somewhat clear perspective in you mind as to what is the best course to pursue.

In due humility. I don't know the correct answer.
We can go on for hours and days of huge discourse in the details of the Islamic quest for world domination. Then in their pee brains there would be real peace.
But that does not address fully what best course America and her supposed allies should take regarding the current strife in so many Mid East nations all brewing to what may become really bad scenarios.

Small wonder onyx. I find the need for a little Chianti in the evening hours to calm the mind and take the physical pain from the old body. Surely you shall give your support in my medicinal needs.

To be clear. In the last paragraph my mention of the Islamic aspects of this issue. As you three are totally aware, once Assad is kicked out, most likely a similar pattern is going to evolve. One where most likely the Sunni will end up taking control. The Iranians well know this. It is strange why they continue to support Assad, based on his Allawite control, being tolerant of the Christians, Jews, Sunni as well as Shiite sects, other then their over riding concept of Islam against the rest of the world.

So many things to consider on this particular issue. Of course one thing in common as we are aware is the long ties between Russia, Iran, and Syria.
Russia must continue to support it's two puppet states, and the goons that they depend on getting big bucks from for weapons sales, nuclear programs, many consumer manufactured goods, etc..
It just gets so involved as you three would acknowledge.
I'm not up to going into any longer a discourse as I have already.

You three have a great upcoming day. Sorry for perhaps tiring your eyes on what might be perceived as BS. It was not meant to be so.

Your statements are well received. Rest assured. I only pray that Romney will get a very solid well seasoned group of advisers along the line you suggest, in particularly foreign affairs as well as the more so obvious to some financial needs of this country.
I hope my somewhat long winded reply to Ernest does not tire your eyes. Obviously the mid east issues are so damn complicated on so many levels.
It is so easy to just make some rather "partial" remarks at site such as this on those things.

Things do get a bit complicated where honest well though out and studied responses often are not produced. Tis the nature of the beast.

Do have a great upcoming day onyx.

"I learn from you guys."
Then it should be in duty that all at this site and like minded sites for all to provide at least honest thought out discourse that can perhaps be found to be factual in the end.
We have a lot of very good folks at this site. I think over time people get to the point, that they feel, often, what is the use of trying to carry out a solid point.

I also have felt privileged over the years to hear opinions from quite a few long time Freepers, and some not so old in time.

I would like to salute all those that for years have contributed meaningful and accurate information to this site.
Many I no longer see popping up. Then see some well beyond my entry date pop up with some solid remarks.

In closing onyx. Aside from your gracious approval of my "wine project", I must say. We do have a large group of people who have not left the site apparently, still on occasions making terse statements, and longer, and to the point required. As I write I hope you are comfortably asleep under HIS almighty hand, soon to seek the sunlight in your window and get ready for another day.

And I am mildly impressed with many of the newer members. Some are just as well positioned to offer positive and factual discourse at this site. No response required if none are needed.
You often are to the point. No BS. No cute remarks. Only inert wisdom. Take care.
