      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

The strange case of the Benghazi survivors…

Recommended Posts

Six months later and we have not heard from a single one of the 30 Benghazi survivors or even know who they are. Isn't that a bit odd?

 

"Why have we not heard from any of the Benghazi survivors? I can't tell you the answer to that," Kerry told Fox News last week. "I can tell you that I have visited with one of the survivors ... who is a remarkably courageous person, who is doing very, very well."

Must be buried next to Vince Foster, to keep them quiet.

 

Did you here some elements of the Tea Party are now boycotting Fox News for being "too liberal"? One major complaint is they don't spend nearly enough time on Benghazi coverage.

 

Sadly though, most of them are turning to Breitbart and Drudge to fill the hole in their hearts, rather than news from which they might learn something.

One speculation that I read was that the witnesses would confirm that the leaders of the attack were dressed in Afghan clothes. This would imply an orchestrated Al Qaeda attack ie “An act of war” against the USA. An act of war against the USA could be politically problematic in the middle of an election campaign and might explain the coordinated effort by the administration to portray the attack as a mob of disgruntled movie critics gone wild.

We had hearings on Benghazi. They turned up nothing useful. The election is over.

Except that Al Qaeda is not just the afghani's, it's a loose collection of groups around the planet. But, let's not let facts get in the way.

Not particularly. If there were an issue to be found, it would have come out at the hearings. It's not like the hearings were run by a bunch of liberal fascists trying to protect the Kenyan. If they found anything approaching the size of a crumb, it would have been the news of the day. They didn't, and it wasn't. They were left holding their respective johnsons and looking rather silly. Reaching tinfoil hat territory with this stuff.

Speaking of speculation, the Al Qaedis are training the drug cartels along the Mexican border. A buddy of mine who is a fan of AM radio told me that he has seen the YouTube videos. I asked him if they had uniforms or signs or something, like "Al Qaeda Cartel Training Camp 1 mile" or similar.

 

Also, the government has 50,000 special forces stationed in GA waiting to take our guns.

 

And Obama is the anti-Christ and I am a French model.

 

BonJour.

The CIA usually releases everything 50 years after the fact. Some interesting Johnson tapes recently came out. Seems he had Nixon's phone tapped.

Except for information regarding the attack on Bin Laden where they were helping the movie makers less than 50 days after the fact.

The Tea Party also believes we must trust the President.

Odds are they are all CIA. That facility wasn't a diplomatic mission, it was a CIA outpost. You won't hear from the survivors.

Apparently some were CIA, we know some State Dept people came over from the diplomatic mission and the article indicates some were government contractors.

So if they were CIA, why would we expect their identities to be made public? Did their spouses speak out against Bush/Cheney? Did they park in the parking lot at Langley?

It's not a matter of inconvenience or worthiness. If they were CIA, there's not going to be a disclosure of names, unless there is some shady political crap going on. Should we revisit everything that has already been investigated? The 10/08 crash? The 9/11/01 attacks?

 

Why would we expect to see names publicized, if they were CIA?

How did you conclude that they were all CIA? Some probably were but what about the ones who fled from the diplomatic mission? And what of the reports that some were government contractors?

Spare us your childish bluster and get back to us with some facts we can discuss.

Since Sol said 'if', he was only putting forth a hypothetical. Of course he can now claim he didn't actuallly say anything and that your acceptance of his hypothetical for discussion was pure fiction on your part and demands that you prove the hypothetical he initiated.

 

He thinks that's smart.

Pssst. I didn't bring up the CIA. Perhaps you should address the poster who did, rather than trying to work the perception over the reality straussian mind trick. My panties are far from in a twist...wherever they may be. I love rubbing your nose in it when you fall for some nutter's story.

Ah yes, the straussian angle. I need not defend anything, and am not defending anything; I am making fun of you chasing your tail again. You started a silly thread about why we don't know about the survivors, when the answer is that in all likelihood, we would never hear about them if they were CIA, something undoubtedly looked into by a congressional committee trying desperately to find anything to throw to the ODS community. You have not demonstrated that we should have heard anything about survivors. You have only succeeded in being duped into slinging a turd that the congressional committee that reviewed the evidence was unwilling to sling themselves. The joke is on you. Again.

I still want to hear more about Dog's "dressed like Afghans and thus Al Qaeda and thus act of war" angle:

 

One speculation that I read was that the witnesses would confirm that the leaders of the attack were dressed in Afghan clothes. This would imply an orchestrated Al Qaeda attack ie “An act of war” against the USA. An act of war against the USA could be politically problematic in the middle of an election campaign and might explain the coordinated effort by the administration to portray the attack as a mob of disgruntled movie critics gone wild.

As the citation was likely too embarrassing to provide, allow me to be of assistance and provide additional color:

 

"Well it was night so, you know, pretty damn dark out so we had a heckuva time telling whether the dress-looking things worn by wide swaths of that part of the world that the terrorists were wearing were the specific kind worn in Afghanistan, but fortunately they were observed to be playing that Dead Goat Polo game that Afghans love so much so we knew they were Al Qaeda (which is 100% Afghan, by the by). And then as everyone knows that would be an Act of War by Al Qaeda in Afghanistan so Obama would have to quit dithering and invade Afghanistan which would be politically problematic."

 

Just wait until Issa get wind of this. The hearings will crank right back up again. Obama should just resign now.

As I said earlier, this explanation is speculative, I am certainly open to others. The "they were CIA" explanation seems to have fallen flat. Sol’s position that there is nothing unusual about knowing nothing about the survivors of an attack on the USA after six months, is patently absurd. I find the story intriguing so if you’ve got something lets hear it.

One speculation that I read was that the witnesses would confirm that the leaders of the attack were dressed in Afghan clothes. This would imply an orchestrated Al Qaeda attack ie “An act of war” against the USA. An act of war against the USA could be politically problematic in the middle of an election campaign and might explain the coordinated effort by the administration to portray the attack as a mob of disgruntled movie critics gone wild.

 

As the citation was likely too embarrassing to provide, allow me to be of assistance and provide additional color:

 

"Well it was night so, you know, pretty damn dark out so we had a heckuva time telling whether the dress-looking things worn by wide swaths of that part of the world that the terrorists were wearing were the specific kind worn in Afghanistan, but fortunately they were observed to be playing that Dead Goat Polo game that Afghans love so much so we knew they were Al Qaeda (which is 100% Afghan, by the by). And then as everyone knows that would be an Act of War by Al Qaeda in Afghanistan so Obama would have to quit dithering and invade Afghanistan would would be politically problematic."

 

Just wait until Issa get wind of this. The hearings will crank right back up again. Obama should just resign now.

As I said earlier, this explanation is speculative, I am certainly open to others. The "they were CIA" explanation seems to have fallen flat. Sol’s position that there is nothing unusual about knowing nothing about the survivors of an attack on the USA after six months, is patently absurd. I find the story intriguing so if you’ve got something lets hear it.

Make up whatever straw man you wish. Please don't attach my name to it.

Whatever.

Even from this angle the Glenn Beck Rally attendence estimates seem high.

 

Looks more like state of the union address... :ph34r:

I think it was a Jedi mind trick.

I saw her sneaking around in my back yard the other day. Call DHS...ben-alper-mom-wrapped-in-afghan_1.jpg

 

Call me. She's beautiful. If she's not your wife, I mean.

Well I have no idea, but given that we can always assume that this regime is hiding something we have clear "absence of evidence = evidence of absence" case so I think we should just continue to make up wild theories that don't come close to passing even cursory logical examination until we do know something.

Seems the survivors don't want to talk about their experience because they are not attention whores. How INCONVIENIENT

Possible I guess but very unlikely.

Yes...until we know. It's been 6 months.

I take some solace in the fact that the Loyal Opposition appears to have let it drop. I have to believe that were there even the slightest political advantage to be gained by pursuing this line of questioning they'd be all over it.

 

But then I suppose I'm doing some absence/evidence reasoning there too.

Why would the House and Senate Foreign Affairs Committees have survivors testify behind closed doors, instead of in public?

 

The Senate is controlled by Democrats and the House is controlled by RINOs. Obviously.

Why would you say that? I don't know if you've ever been through anything traumatic, or something like combat, but it's not something that folks like to talk about-- especially if they know people like you will be ready to pounce on anything they say for a political point.

Socrates response Mr Hitch. You post gay porn as a form of argument. Why do do that?

 

You're kind of obsessed with the gay porn I posted years ago. Why don't you just come out of the closet? There must be other gay muslims. You could form a support group.

Seems unlikely to me because there are 30 people who would all have to be similarly inclined. Not to mention possible financial gain that could follow from telling their story. Somehow I doubt if "people like me" play into it at all.

Your underestimating their level of professionalism as well as not wanting anything they say to be manipulated. But who knows-- maybe some of them will talk at some point.

Perhaps they will again, at a forum more public than a closed door committee hearing.

Can anyone PROVE the Gay Whales were not behind this?

Can you account for EVERY single gay whale at this time?

How can you say they didn't do it without every single gay whale coming on Oprah to gush about the trauma they didn't experience?

 

NUKE THE GAY WHALES!

Except that Al Qaeda is not just the afghani's, it's a loose collection of groups around the planet. But, let's not let facts get in the way.

Nothing in that "speculation" was presented as fact....But, lets not let the facts get in the way.

 

One speculation is that the poster known by the screen name of "Dog" is a confirmed child molester.

Do we KNOW for a fact that 9-11 "victims" from the fake Pentagon missile attack were not sent to Libya to be killed for real there?

Do we KNOW the fake birth certificate forms used by Obama were not burned in the attack? Can you PROVE this did not happen?
