    All of your questions are possible but even if all were true, Te answer is the one Hilary gave so what!

    1) Had we provided any weapons or training to the group when we were supporting anyone with a gun to help overthrow Ghadaffi, distinctly possible. Were they really angry because we had subsequently withdrawn that support in times we could be more discerning?

    2) What was the role of the consulate at the time of the rebellion, well that is easy. IT DID NOT EXIST.

    3) were we funnelling weapons through that group or any other group from Libya to Syria, or any other country who might send them to Syria, or another country. Again the answer is even if we were SO WHAT! Was there an intelligence operation to buy up supplies of weapons that had come from Ghaddaffi supplies and stop them getting into the hands of our enemies, I hope so. If such a program did exist what did we do with any of the supplies we obtained, interesting question but what on earth would it have to do with the attack.

    Bottom line there were 2 attacks 1 on the consulate which clearly did not have adequate security and while the ambassador was quickly evacuated to a safe room he died because it was not safe from smoke and fire and although he got to a hospital he died from smoke inhalation very early.

    The second attack 7 hours later on the annexe was more of a firefight, and 3 US citizens died, 1 state Department and 2 ex SEAL CIA contractors. Here I can not understand the fuss, if the CIA did not think it was dangerous to be conducting clandestine operations in a recent war zone, they would not be deploying ex SEAL armed operatives. Yes it is bad they died but the idea that you can operate overseas in an armed covert way and never take casualties is mindset that is very Strange.

      Why is it not valid to question our president from the left?

      The murder of human beings by either a Democrat or Republican president bothers me.

      Some people are too eager to give Democrats a free pass.

        ...but has nothing to do with the Republican obsession for "WHO CHANGED THE TALKING POINTS," which has nothing to do with the "murder of human beings".

        So, take it elsewhere.

          Screw the Republicans, they attack from the wrong side for the wrong reasons.

          It is legit to criticize Obama, Clinton and Rice over Libya and Benghazi.
