  •  Yes, let's talk about Benghazi (0+ / 0-)

    Remember General Petraeus who commanded the multinational force fighting the Iraq War? The same guy whose master thesis at Princeton was "The American military and the lessons of Vietnam"...

    Well the same woman he was cheating with, Paula Broadwell publicly claimed in October the Benghazi attack was retribution for "enhanced" interrogations of Libyans by the CIA, or perhaps even an attempt to jailbreak Libyans still being held.

    Turning the Benghazi consulate into a secret CIA rendition site was enabled by the AUMF which suspended our usual military code, our international treaties, and our Constitution in the way we handle detainees and suspects.

    So, full circle and head up ass - we should indeed be discussing Benghazi, asking Republicans why they aren't attacking Obama for continuing the secret renditions that only lead to anti-American blowback.
