On further thought, how DID Acheson and Truman manage to get all those great and consequential things done without so much roadwork? Or Roosevelt (sans 747's even!)?

Nothing interferes with Obama's evenings with his girls, BigSlik, and you will recall that those guys' cries for help from Benghazi were awfully inconvenient time-wise. But why did Hillary skip out so early, or not see that August cable from our Ambassador regarding security inadequacies at Banghazi. Can't believe THAT wasn't included into their State/CIA TS Daily Summaries, though, but of course Obama says he often found it too boring to read. Hardly any wonder things get missed with both of them out of town campaigning or jaw-boning all the time. I remember a time when our Pres and our Chief Diplomat rarely traveled outside DC until some agreement had already been reached by underlings and only needed a ceremonial signature. And I thought modern technology had improved diplomatic communications; more the fool I!

And isn't it "convenient" that Panetta is now admitting that our POTUS wasn't even in the situation room at the time of the attack nor did he even ask for an update. To me, this is showing that he has no business being our C-in-C.

Taxed, they are ALL liars, Reps and Dems. Remember a certian Pres. on national television telling you and me and everyone else he did not have sex with that woman?

Better get that story right on a State Dept guy really "ratting out" that CIA agent, Taxed..., not Rove, and the Special Prosecutor learning that early on but concealing the truth so he could continue his fishing expedition, which finally got the guy he did not for "ratting" anyone out but for perjury. Not at all unlike those other, DOJ agents who got Senator Stevens with outright lies for which they were censured - but before Stevens was defeated and, indeed, quite dead. And what was that OBAMA SAID ABOUT THE UNIONS: "I owe them!" Even had Cheney thought of Haliburton from time to time - and that is pure conjecture - just watch Obama pay back the ' AFL-CIO's "take-the-fifth" President, Trumpka, and other union thugs like those in Michigan.

I'm still waiting for the results on the coverup from the Bush - Cheney coverup on the weapons of mass destruction excuse that put us in a war that cost over 4000+ American lives and put a boat load of cash in Cheney's former company. Where is the Messenger on getting to the facts on who knew what and when and who manufactured this false information. How deep was Cheney involved. We know Karl Rove ratted out a CIA agent was found guilty - pardoned by Bush and was hired by Fox and has his own Republican PAC. How does the Messenger just overlook these deals? I guess you only see what your told to see when your job depends on your comments.

Senators and House members should ask for a confidential review of pertinent TOP Secret Daily Summaries of State Dept and CIA communications that is prepared by those agencies cooperatively to be available to the President and various top policy makers by breakfast every week day. These include sections on all the hot spots such as Libya, about which something must have been covered almost every day. Sadly, it has been reported that Pres Obama finds them BORING and thus does not always read them carefully, if at all, depending on the high-paid flunkies surrounding him to keep him informed, a "lazy" trait he has himself admitted. Those summaries might quickly reveal who knew what when. At least when I wrote and edited the State contribution, they would have as they were a very thorough compilation of embassy and consulate activities and problems worldwide.
