    I’m not sure what to make of Gates’ comment that we (the military etc) didn’t know if the Benghazi attack was from (more or less) organized terrorists, or some kind of mob run wild. And that sending planes or Special Forces etc without knowing, would have been risky and possibly disastrous.

    Haven’t we been hearing for some time now that the higher-ups at that time, had seen real-time video etc which showed from the start that it was not some kind of random mob thing? Amb. Rice and Hillary Clinton and others have been saying either that we didn’t know or that it was a reaction to the YouTube video that “nobody” has seen, but we’ve known from the get-go that they were deliberately spreading lies and misinformation.

    Has Gates been believing those lies, for some reason?

About mid-way through the piece is a photo of a youthful Jeb hugging his fat […]
