Neal Barton's POV

We'll see what else comes out of this

The Washington Post is the last place I figured I would see this.

But, according to The Post, the senate report says the attack on Benghazi could have been prevented. Reports say they knew there was a substantial risk for those who were there and you know by now, four American diplomats were killed.

The senate plan says the senate panel is a fault for not providing enough security. The report also states the CIA and State Department had both sent "general warning notices to facilities worldwide" about possible attacks on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, Al Qaeda attacks on the United States.

The Post reports:

The committee said murky intelligence reporting in the immediate aftermath of the attacks led to confused or erroneous public statements by "policy makers" who initially blamed the attack on a protest against a anti-Islamic video produced in the United States that had appeared on the Internet. The committee said U.S. spy agencies "took too long to correct these erroneous reports."

Other reports on the matter related to this say a high ranking general and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta knew this was indeed a terror attack. I guess we are to believe the Secretary of Defense never got around to telling the president about a terror attack.

Indeed. We'll see what else come out.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Hey they teach journalism at UT Tyler. It's not too late to learn. I'm graduating this year at 50. You can learn how to investigate a story and write something original Neal I have faith in you.

If the Republicans win the Senate and, with a few Democrats, more than 2/3s of the seats then, yes, they can impeach Obama AND convict. 90 percent of the Democrats now are in his pocket but that can change once the election comes.

We pretty much know now the Republicans will win both houses, but the question is... by how much?

Hope and change in 2014. Time to turn things around!

Most people already knew it, and like I have said all along that is one of the main reasons Hillary left office and she got away with it scott free. Obummer should be impeached and the rest fired. But we all know nothing will happen to them as they are untouchable for some reason.

They will use the Sgt. Schulz excuse.... "I KNOW NOTHING.... NOTHING!!!"
