Four of our bravest are perished due to lack of support. Does anyone have more accurate information than what I'm hearing on major news and talk shows?

There have been multiple investigations into it, the truth that we know if is that it wasn't an ordinary riot at originally told and that it was a planned complex terrorist attack. What we also know is that repeatedly senior officials were told that security was not adequate there. We rely on the forces of the host nation to protect our embassy and they were not doing their job.

I think the biggest thing that we need to do is make sure we have enough protection for all of our embassies and take responsibility for our actions. I am disappointed that there is just finger pointing on this issue. We don't know the full story it seems like because we are just covering up problems.

If one puts all the rhetoric and BS aside, the only fact I know is the date it happened, four Americans were killed, and the story changed too many times to know what the truth is. And Mrs. Clinton's "What does it matter?" will forever set in my gut like a brick.

And it happened in Benghazi, all other details are talking points.

Thank you for sharing the link CW2 W, One should also look at the video of the questioning by Senator Johnson, it helps bring the conversation into perspective.

True, I think bottom line is you'll see what you want to see depending on which side of the isle you are on(Left or Right)

For many, yes, I try to look at things objectively, or at least from the center of the isle. We all have our own view, regardless of our political beliefs. I pray, the truth, regardless of where it may be, does come out.

What sets in my gut is that four Americans were sacrificed for politics and those hero's are crying out from their graves for justice.
