  1. “…to prevent it from ever happening again Senator.”-HRC

    We just did.
    We just took the best step forward to stop the idiotic indecisive negligence of public officials who should never hold positions that are clearly above their abilities. ie.former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

    I am happy that at the very least the families of our four heroes can breathe a bit easier this morning knowing Mrs. Incompetent isn’t the next POTUS.

  2. I wish I had known about this ad prior to the election. I think I could have gotten a dozen more pro-Trump votes cast.

    Here is information about “what difference it makes:” to briefly review, about 4pm Washington DC time, Hillary was informed of the Benghazi attack. As we know, military forces were ready to respond and be on the site within 60min-2 hours, with a full special strike force nearby in Rota, Spain, which is the HQ’s for regional US Naval activities.

    Hillary Clinton made no known response to the calls forwarded to her by Gen. Carter Ham and Admiral Charles M. Gaouette for at least “13 Hours”. Both Ham and Gaouette have been dismissed from their positions and to this day have been unable to publicly voice what they know.

    However, at 10pm Washington time, Hillary did finally call an emergency meeting—to plot a public political response—even while the 25 or so surviving Americans were under mostly sustained and repeated assaults. All the time, we now know, ex-SEAL contractors Ty Woods & Glen Doherty, USMC M. Sgt. “TIg” (John) Tiegen, USMC Security Officer Mark “Oz” Geist, Army Ranger Kris “Tonto” Paranto, and two additional contractors that are anonymous to this day (In the Movie “13 Hours”, they are called “Jack Silva” & “Dave Benton”–pseudonyms) were having RPG’s, various arms and sniper fire, and finally 82 mm high-explosive mortar rounds, were picking them off. In fact, as we already know, Doherty and Woods disregarded “orders” to stay away from the beleaguered annex, even though hearing their agonized distress calls. It went on of course, for 13 hours.

    And where was Hillary. At this point, what difference does it make?

    Ty Woods is buried at Ft. Rosecrans Natl. Military Cemetery overlooking San Diego Bay, one of the most beautiful final resting places in the world. I have visited it, because Mrs. Phoenix’ dad is buried there. Woods also owned, until 2011, a bar and grill in Imperial Beach, near SD. He left all that to return to service as a military contractor. He is buried at Rosecrans, at least, with consummate honor. He left behind two teen-age sons and a younger daughter from a later marriage with his spouse, shown in the video above. But, what difference does it make?

    Glen Doherty is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Doherty, for those who are interested, was Catholic. He had no children and was not married at the time of his death. Many people do not know that Glen Doherty actually had his knees reconstructed, a result of repeated military extreme deployments, and was actually planning on leaving the military in 2001 when 9-11 happened. He re-upped instead. Now he rests with our greatest heroes (and a few scoundrels, like Ted Kennedy: there will be room for Hillary, too). So, what difference does it make, now? Alas, poor Yorick.

    Ambassador Chris Stevens, who died early in the assault, was single and had no children. He is buried at Forester’s Cemetery in the quiet town of Grass Valley, CA in the small Northern California Sierras, where he was born in 1960. And what difference does that make, now?

    For Sean Patrick Smith, an information management officer with State, and a 7-year USAF veteran, his final resting place has not been released by his family. He left behind two children at the time of his death. His life made a difference to them; perhaps.

    And now we turn to Hillary Rodham, a woman whose life makes Lucretia Borgia look like that of a cloistered nun, whose quest for power has finally been crushed.

    But none of these 4 lives, nor the approximately 25 who survived because of Woods, Doherty and the other courageous defenders of Benghazi, make any difference now.
    Or can anyone tell me what difference it makes?

  3. There is a film entitled 13 Hours based on the book of the same name written by the survivors of Benghazi. If war had been declared by Congress Hillary Rodham Clinton could be tried for treason. Jezebel

  4. Yea, Mary De Voe, I have seen “Thirteen Hours”, part of my repeated references to it, and the interview with 3 of the survivors (“Tig” Tiegen, Mark “Oz” Geist, and Kris “Tonto/Tanto” Paranto), the 3 who have bravely come forward and allowed themselves to be identified.

    I also view and review “Blackhawk Down” repeatedly, because—what a surprise, it is a limited military engagement occurring as part of dumbfoundingly idiotic liberal administration’s misquided effort to conduct a diplomatic mission in a furiously hostile jihadi Muslim failed state—why, isn’t that like the idiocy in Libya? “Oh, what difference does it make.” And: Oh: who was the president at that time? The spouse of the Jezebel in charge of Ben-ghazi.

    Also, please never forget Aug. 6th, 2011, the day we lost SEAL team 6, 25 SEAL team members and 5 air support personnel. Our most elite, highly trained, unique personnel: 25 wiped out in one day.

    Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State in January, 2009: She is known to have travelled to Pakhistan, at least in July 2010, and likely several other times to Afghanistan, and Pakhistan: and was regularly in contact with Pakhistani officials, possibly arranging the Bin Laden raid (May 1-2, 2011). And, most importantly, we know her blackberry and mobil devices had already been hacked in 2009 (from Wikileaks) and information spread all over at least 5 foreign intelligence services (Iran certainly was one of the 5).
    ….

    On Aug 6th, 2011, SEAL team 6 ostensibly had been missioned to bring back a “high-value target”, a Taliban leader, supposedly, to try to gain leverage in obtaining an Afghanistan peace settlement. Clinton was being kept up to date with information directly from Huma Abedin on this unsecure network. We now know the Aug 6th SEAL team mission was leaked – several of the Afghan soldiers who were to accompany the high-risk mission inexplicably “switched out” literally the morning of the mission—an unheard of development! That should have been a signal that they had blown cover. And, their 6 replacement soldiers were also all killed along with the 30 USA personnel that day, from a highly defended target with RPG batteries placed in strategic positions on the hillside.
    ….
    Gee, they musta known.

    What difference does it make.

  5. Smith was AKA “Vile Rat” of Goonfleet in EVE. (Translating into slightly more normal terms: he was basically a major organizer for the regional and national non-pro bowling league tournaments. Or one of the regional leaders for a hobby based ELKs, who did helped organize the national convention. He was a really well known person in a pretty tight knit group, and even folks who disliked him greatly there would CARE.)

    That had to cost Hillary some votes, especially among the folks who never paid any attention to politics because they all suck.
