“What David Ignatius of The Washington Post describes as a “detailed CIA timeline” of the events that unfolded in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012 (and in the early hours of Sept. 12), confirms that former Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were not killed until seven hours after the State Department informed the White House—in writing–that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack and that U.S. Amb.

It’s a fact that intelligence agencies still maintain that Iraq had the WMDs we were looking for. I have a source who told me evidence suggests Saddam Hussein transported said WMDs to a neighboring country (being purposefully vague to protect my friend).
For those intellectually dishonest people saying the war in Iraq remotely resembles the incidents in Benghazi, it appears Dear Leader is taking your cue by throwing the intelligence community under the bus.
