Insult me all you want, I don’t give a damn. Its not me I’m defending, or this God awful administration for that matter.
There was no military stand down. You had my quote Colonel Gibson right there for damn sakes!
The only ones who stood down was FEST, and they aren’t military, they’re State Department assets.
So how about you stop trying take the heads off of Generals and Colonels who were every bit doing their jobs as Mark Thompson tried that night, and aim at the people who really did do nothing?
Didn’t know this, because I Surprise don’t give a **** what that bitch writes. I’m sure its just as truthful as “My Life”, a title I only know because I saw it in a store.
Not so much.
You’re taking narrow stories about General staff officer who’ve done dumb things, approved women’s entry into the SEALS, enlist Gays, or removing “So help me God” from the USAFA oath.
You’re frustrated by those things, I get that, but I will not let you use it as a cudgel to characterize these men however you want, simply because you are frustrated.
You’re applying these acts wholesale across the board. You’re not taking any of these men, as * their own* men. You’re not analyzing their record, you’re not weighing in on choices they personally made prior to this, you’re just condemning them all collectively for the actions of a few, and reading those actions into this situation.
Thus far, it’s all been bluster with you. If you have evidence that they’ve acted incompetently, or with political aims, then hand it over. Prove that your accusations have merit. Why is that so wrong to ask?
I defend these men, because it’s no different than my defense of the Generals and Colonels on 9/11. I see the parallel, the same injustice occurring here, I don’t give **** if you don’t.
[/quote] Alaska I think I have argued against you on Benghazi as hard as anyone here (I think I may even have started this thread God help me) and in one post I was so emotional I risked attention from the mods, but for the record, I do not question your motives. I question the completeness and in some cases the accuracy of your information.
