Low and no information voters will wake up in the near future and wonder how this could have happened. The Democrat party promised us a level playing field, but something went very wrong. Inflation is going to eat you alive. A little government is necessary to counter act human nature, but big government, is Lucifer in disguise and it has destroyed nation after nation and there is no reason to think that it won’t happen in America.

Republicans using Benghazi for all it’s worth
The most telling explanation of the Benghazi murder of four Americans was printed on page 13 of the Wednesday, May 15, Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The article says Ambassador Stevens, who was killed in Benghazi, refused additional security protection on Aug. 16, when Gen. Carter Ham, head of the U.S. African command, offered military security forces.
Ambassador Stevens again refused military security weeks later when he met Gen. Ham at a meeting in Germany. No reason was given by Ambassador Stevens on either occasion. I cannot think of any reason Ambassador Stevens refused military security other than he wanted to keep the Benghazi operation low profile, probably with CIA encouragement.
Keep in mind the U.S. aid to the Libyan rebels all flowed through Benghazi. The aid operation was a CIA operation. The security provided Ambassador Stevens was not the usual Marine Corps detachment. I have not read any news story identifying who the security men, killed in Benghazi, worked for. I suspect they were CIA or CIA contractors.
Every investigation done by the State Department and the Congress revealed it was the CIA, which created the much-publicized talking points U.N. Ambassador Rice used to inform the media of the attack. What is becoming abundantly clear is that it was the CIA that limited the details of the attack and not the State Department or the administration. There may have been good investigative reasons why the CIA did not want to let the attackers know the CIA knew it was a planned attack and not a result of general demonstrations about an Anti Muslim video.
