Wow! You really are an optimist!

Do you really think Red is anything other than a troll who is here to cause trouble?

What would have Ron Paul asked?

He would have politely brought up the folly of our foreign policy.

“With laws shall our land be built up, but with lawlessness laid waste.”
-Njal Thorgeirsson

Rand the neocon.

Lets not talk about why our troops are occupying countries around the world. Lets talk about the "significant" number of military troops we need to send to these countries to "protect" our embassies. Rand is a neocon tool. He is NOT his father. He will support the oil/resource wars.

I think he is showboating

To grab headlines. It's the "any coverage is good coverage" strategy. Get some free publicity, endear yourself to anyone who hates Clinton.

I don't think he's a Neo-Con stooge, but I don't think he looked all that great in there. He needs to go to Charisma School.

14 days 10 hours.. where ya

14 days 10 hours.. where ya been the last 6 years?

President Paul. Hillary threw

President Paul.

Hillary threw in the towel on that one...threw up her arms, and said, "you got me, you're good kid."

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

The arms to Turkey question

seems like a set up for something in the future. Came out of nowhere. Got the basic "I know nothing" answer. So if something does surface where she did know then ...

Do you think Kadaffi's cache of missles were at the

"annex"/compound? I don't.

This is pure politics. Ron

This is pure politics. Ron Paul would have used the opportunity to promote non-interventionism. Rand, on the other hand, uses it as an opportunity to advance his 2016 presidential bid. That's why she's shaking her head and smirking at him.

You don't think

Rand Paul's points raised were valid?

I don't...

The US State Dept is not itself tasked with logistical and tactical analysis and deployment of security for consulates and embassies. That is a function of the military.

Either the deaths were 1) poor military implementation, 2) blowback for merely being there or they were a planned payback or warning of some kind. Possibly it could have been a bit of both 1) and 2).

Throw in the fact that all this is occurring in a war zone and that bad logistics can happen even in peaceful settings then what good does upbraiding Hillary accomplish unless there is some hard evidence she plotted a payback or a mafia type warning? War is hell and bad things happen.

The real issue is we shouldn't even be there and our presence brings blowback. Rand failed to even mention it. He's just left looking like a pariah...

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

I gotta give Rand credit

He asked the hard questions that needed to be asked. Too bad nothing will be done.Nobody in government gets busted anymore since Nixon and his gang of plumbers.

When you watch that you tube

this one is on the menu- it's Rand Paul on George Orwell's 1984- http://youtu.be/FHh52PRLIcI
That science fiction time is here, he's right. http://youtu.be/FHh52PRLIcI
I wish he was Dr. Ron Paul's cabinet member but we have to take what we've got. You have to admit his pit bull nature is the only thing some people understand. If he'll just stop riding on the AirForce 1 and visiting Isreal we'd feel alot better.

Good work, Rand!

Ayn Rand would had added that, in 21st century, Skype would be enough in case clerks from Libyan State Department want to talk to Hillary or her clerks. Embassies should be things of the past.

This is a total joke

Condi Rice was National Security Advisor to Bush and according to the 9/11 commission was delievered a memo about terrorists flying planes into DC and NYC targets. Rice says "I dont remember"
No congressional hearing!
No political theate!
None of this nonsense

Over 3000 Americans were murdered and the congress did NOTHING.
Bush promotes her to secretary of state and the senante confirms her.

This is political theater to try and pin a consulate attack on a sitting secretary of state.
Yet the people like Rice who "cant recall" and gives false testimony for the invasion of Iraq are heros and praised.
Rand Paul is a fool! I regret sending him money and threw away my shirt.

Rand is certainly no fool and it is good that your weak support

ends now. You assume that Rand wouldn't have grilled Rice if a Senator at the time. Also, Hillary supported the Iraq war - see other post in here.

Word!

Word!

why does that make you

why does that make you disappointed with Rand?

"No physical quantity explains it's own existence, and no amount of time can consume an infinite series of events to bring you to the present, which means all of these somewhere have to be explained by one self-existent cause which is not physical."

Over 13k

comments from the frothing liberals at Huffington Post. Rand is a major threat to them, remember, the bigger the threat, the more emotional liberals get. YOU READING THIS GOP ESTABLISHMENT?

Rand is right

We took sides, armed the rebels and coordinated the overthrow of the existing government. Why in the world, under those circumstances, would our top diplomat be completely unprotected. It doesn't take much to know there might be a few pissed off loyalists wanting to kill Americans... Especially the Ambassador!

Rand is going to eat her alive in the debates: If he can first make it through the GOP imbeciles of course.

Rand has wise council. In this match, choosing sides is easy.

Tis the mine field one has to be wary of.

It seems......

Rand is constantly bending over backwards to please Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, and Fox News.
I have no problem with his attack on Hillary. But he wont even say he will vote for Hagel for secretary of defense. He is siding with neo-cons. His trip to Israel, etc.
I was a huge Rand Paul supporter because I thought he would be like his Dad Ron Paul. But I have not seen any courage from Rand in standing up to the GOP.

Enjoy the threatre.

Rand has wise council.

Following ones father is at times... difficult... impossible... or even more difficult than that. How would you climb in his family tree?

Please, don't turn that question back on me. I am an innocent.

How would one climb Rand's family tree?

With as much integrity as one could muster.

Watch Hillary's response at the 1:40 mark

After every statement Rand makes, she makes a very distinct and seemingly prolonged blink, as if she is saying 'Yup, you're right,' and agreeing with everything Rand says and using her eyes to convey agreement.
Relieving her of her duties wouldn't be punishment enough. It's just insane that politicians only ever get slaps on wrists and nothing more and then go off to multi-miilion dollar consulting jobs.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Unsatisfactory leadership

Hillary on why she shouldn't be fired: "According to Federal statutes, unsatisfactory leadership is not a breach of duty."

LOL!
