16. Thanks. I've been asking these questions, and now, finally from Mel Goodman's testimony and

your post, I am able to answer them.

So Benghazi wasn't even a consulte.

I read in a Columbus, Ohio newspaper around the time of the election in 2012 (vaguely around that time) that Stevens had asked a guard at the facility about the security.

That guard was not an American.

It seems so obvious that Benghazi is to the East of Libya and close to Egypt and Syria, so I wondered whether maybe there was some sort of weapons exchange or something being coordinated there. And then I learned about the CIA station there, and that put up more red flags in my mind.

So now my worst suspicions have been confirmed.

Obama and Hillary and above all, Petraeus, acted too rashly to deal with Ghadafi and Libya correctly. They did not any of them exercise good judgment.

I wonder whether that is the real reason that Petraeus' affair was made public, and he was fired and then prosecuted for something that was enough to prevent him from running for office in the future.

So Hillary is left. But she has shown such poor judgment on foreign affairs, on a number of issues.

This is a very sad situation for our country.

If I could ask the right questions sitting in my living room knowing so little about the facts, how must this situation appear to people in other parts of the world who know all the facts.

This is very bad for our country.

We should not nominate or elect Hillary Clinton or anyone who has supported our foreign policy in the Middle East, India, Pakistan, etc.
