    your (and many others') characterization of Carney.  I'd very much like to know what you believe he should have said in mid-crisis before the bodies were identified, the families notified, and the facts known, that would have satisfied you.

    You may recall there was a great deal of righteous uproar from the Right about Susan Rice's commentary--also mid-crisis--before the facts were completely know about Benghazi.  Do you also think she was "asinine?"

      that we have far too many of these horrors and we need to do something about it. he already knew that a maniac was shooting up a school. there weren't any more details necessary for the basic concept that we have a gun problem in this country. and i don't give a shit about right wing asshattery about benghazi. right wing assholes will be what they are, regardless of time, place and circumstance.
