Is the crux of the problem with Benghazi, is that we've replaced the military with expensive contractors?

Basically bros, we've privatized foreign policy to people whose allegiance isn't really to the flag per se, but to making a profit at the tax payers expense. I mean how can a contractor continue to make a 1000 dollars a day if he puts himself in the line of fire and takes a bullet for an ambassador? That just doesn't make any economic sense.

    What contractors ! It was the Obama administration who Hired Al Qaeda to Defend the Benghazi Embassy ; which was the very gang that attacked the US compound .

    Friday, May 3, 2013

    A startling revelation has come out of the Benghazi attacks. Not only did we move our own people out of Benghazi, but we actually moved Al Qaeda in. The Feb 17th Martyrs brigade actually had the audacity to fly the Al Qaeda flag prominently in the months leading up to the attack. This is the group Obama hired to protect Ambassador Stevens and the embassy. How did hopey changey work for them?

    On their Facebook page, several members professed support for Ansar al-Sharia, the hardline Islamist extremist group, who is believed to have carried out the attack on Benghazi. The State Dept refuses to comment. Naturally. The recent congressional report on Benghazi documents the group’s use of kidnapping and making threats against Americans. Is it possible Obama didn’t know any of this? Fat chance. And just days before the attack the Feb 17th Martyrs Brigade announced they would no longer provide security when members of the embassy staff left the compound.

    So why did the State Department hire a group which is close to and abetted Al Qaeda? *****And why was the 16 man security force removed just a couple of weeks before the attack? And more importantly, why did we not move to save the embassy staff? And how is it possible that they didn’t know who they were dealing with when their original cover photo prominently displays the Al Qaeda flag?*****

    When we get to the answers of these questions, we will have our articles of impeachment.

    If you want to see the rats scatter in Washington let some" honest" congressmen or women do a through investigation on Black Water and other mercenaries the government has hired to take the place of our military. Black Water got away with murder in Iraq of innocent civilians and it's no telling what might be uncovered if these groups are investigated.
