4 Special Forces Soldiers die in Niger

Does anyone know why we are here ? McCain wants answers, and may suppena ro find out. I don't care about the Trump's apparent lack of empathy what are we doing here ? Is it fighting Isis?

Certainly Trump and his people won't be held to the same unfair standard that obama and hillary were for benghazi.

Everyone here knows I'm pretty anti trumpet but going to need a whole lot more details before we compare it to the shit show that was Benghazi. While it may have been beaten like a dead horse, it was a colossal fuck up under Obama/Clinton. But you're right, of course, in this age of ultra partisan politics even if we find out circumstances were identical there is no way they hold their own as accountable. Nobody does.

You are aware, of course, that the Republican-majority Congress had failed to allocate the total funds requested for embassy and consular security in '12 by $459M prior to Benghazzi, and that there were many attacks on embassies during W's terms in office.

But the Benghazi facility was also temporary, and did not qualify for structural improvements which would have bolstered security.

"The buck stops here." Whether it's fair or not, it happened on their watch, they're going to get shit on it. Dubyah was fortunate to have the United States at peak 'patriotism' post 9/11, he didn't get much flak at the time.

I find it funny how much you guys spend on protecting embassies.

In Brussels, the US embassy is right next to the Russian embassy.

Russian security: Just a standard gate.
US security: The gate, deployable road blocks, security checkpoint with armed guards.

I found it hilarious.

Wonder why you guys are afraid of everything at all times.

I think our government is just aware of how many toes (bodies) it steps on and has to take extra precaution.
