    Oh, pardon me, you were there? Wow, it must have been intense. :wow: or maybe you were with the state department security watching it real time. :shocked:

    Some how I don't take you for either a mover and a shaker, or a rainmaker, much less a meat eater. Doesn't make you a bad person, just not someone I would go to for the straight skinny. Nothing follows.

    Are you suggesting this is a good idea?

    Or are you insinuating that I was saying that is a good idea?

    You truly are a mindless twit.

    Oh shoot, was that an Ad Hominem?

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    I don't mind a good ad hom, but nothing so pathetic as evoking crack cocaine and gay sex.

    But let's try it out.

    Countrygun, your argument is invalid because you like to snort cocaine off of Dick Cheney's balls.

    See, it still doesn't work.

    But I know you put a whole lot of effort in to your comment. Take a moment and enjoy your victory, someone will be along to reinforce it in a moment.

    You weren't there either? Ok, then welcome to the club of your opinions don't mean s#!t too.

    You probably spend a lot of time on the internet. You may want to peruse a study of a basic syllogism.

    How else are we to know we're right? In the absence of a jury, Flint locking his own threads is the most reliable indicator there is.

    Then, your OP is a lie.

    BTW- the rescue team that didn't exist according to Gates was told to stand down.

    How else could you possibly find out, unless you read zombie surgeons post that countrygun was responding to.

    edit: here it is:

    "You really must love how Obama tastes. Sucking him like a junkie sucks a crack pipe."

    It's a microcosm of Benghazi: you'll never know the truth because you refuse to inform yourselves and instead rely on misinformation at every turn. Very apt.

    There is no victory in pointing out someone else's self inflicted wounds.

    Yeah, because you or republicans in congress, or FoxNews, or wingnut blogs haven't spent a moment exaggerating an issue for effect or cherry picking talking points to drag political foes through the mud.

    No, I didn't actually think you would suggest such a thing. What I'm wondering is what you think F16s out of Ariano would have actually accomplished...

    Gates said Libyian air space was too dangerous because of missiles, but the US flew forces in the next day. Lie two.

    BTW- I watched the Gates interview on CBS. He started off by saying that he only knows what he read in the paper! :wow:

    Well, if Sean Smith was lasing the mortar crew as was reported, they could have blown it to hell.

    If he wasn't, they could have run about Mach 1.1 over them at about 200 feet and let the terrorists know the jig was up.

    I bet if the 31st FW Wing Commander had asked for a volunteer for that mission and told them that it was probably going to be a one way mission, he would have had every single pilot volunteer.

    Regards,
    Happyguy :)

    P.S. What is this Ariano?

    Oh, this has to be repeated so certain people don't miss it.

    Secretary of Defense knows nothing but what he read in the paper. I read it. It's real. More news at 11.

    What I think happened is the Obama administration believed it's own press that the Arab Spring was going to bring enlightened secular democracy to a part of the world that has never had it.

    The regime would have to acknowledge it's own dramatic foreign policy failures; in it's mind greater security simply wasn't needed.

    Gates is out of the loop, but CBS used him to protect Obama and released his statements early, it appears.

    CBS and Obama suppressed testimony from an open Congress? Do you just imagine your own reality as you go along?
