I’ve seen the movie 2 times, and I thought it was great! As for shedding light on the things going on in Washington, the Movie is based on the G.R.S. guys accounts of what happened those 13 hours. They can’t tell what they don’t know. The stuff going on in Washington, they didn’t know about… all they know is how many times they asked for help and that it didn’t show up, BUT that it was available if the orders had been given. The folks who know the truth about who wouldn’t release those assets to help our guys in Benghazi, are not talking very much, so not going to get a movie out of it just yet.
I was very proud the G.R.S. guys in Benghazi, as they managed to hold off over 100 attackers, with tacticals for 13 hours, inflicting major casualties on enemy forces while only suffer the lose of 2 of their own (the Ambassador & aide don’t count). Very shortly after the attacks in 2012, it was reported that the CIA station chief held back the G.R.S. guys from going to the aid of the Ambassador and staff. Had the CIA Station Chief had turned the G.R.S. guys loose as soon as the calls for help came out, the Ambassador & aide would likely be alive today.
I hope no one truly needs a movie to know who gave those “Stand Down” orders to the air support and Special Forces Rapid Response team that was ready to go within 30 minutes of the initial report of the attacks on the Ambassador’s compound!!! If you pay attention, their is a few second scene talking about briefing POTUS.

Right Tom, and folks like grifftrain, are the reason why these thugs and low-class players act the way they do. They are giving passes for very bad & reprehensible behavior, so they continue to do it, and those coming up behind them see it and mimic their “idols”. Once upon a time professional players who made FAR LESS were expected to act with class on and off the field, and those players were far more worthy of they praise they got than this over-paid knuckle heads playing the sports today.
 December 28, 2015 at 9:27am
More and more, professional sports is populated with divas and over-priced brats who thinks the world revolves around them, and who are of low-moral character. A great number of professional sports players are not worthy of the respect they demand, and certainly not worthy of all the hype surrounding them. Matthews is a great example of that. There was a time when sportsmanship and integrity were expected, but it seems watching thugs and brats throw fits and act a fool, sells more tickets. The Fans are as much to blame for this as anyone. No one holds these so-called men accountable, for the most part. If the coach was respectable man, he’d suspend Matthews for a game, to make the point, but that won’t happen.

Old Surf, this story doesn’t hold up to the smell test. There is something fishy in that story and it isn’t Hillary! I believe this is all created by CAIR and/or Obama Administration to silence anyone opposed to bringing in Muslim refugees. If those military folks really said that, they demonstrate their lack of understanding of what Trump said and the Islamic threat to this country!
 December 24, 2015 at 10:21am
Isn’t it funny how an 8 year old has an UNFOUNDED fear, that any adult listening to Trumps original statements and follow up statements would know, and instead of the parents dismissing it and laughing it off, they run to the media with the story! How many times have children of white families had fears of monsters under their beds, booger men of various origins coming after them, only to have their parent explain they have nothing to fear about and that is the end of it, save for a funny story at a family gather. As some have suggested, and I agree, the stinks of CAIR involvement and I truly wonder if it really happened. If it did happen why didn’t the parents just explain that her fears were unfounded. Because the whole LIE about victimized Muslims is being cultivated to guilt folks with common sense into silence, just like the neighbors in San Bernardino wouldn’t say anything for fear of being labeled a “Islamophobe” (a term created by…. CAIR) Why the Blaze.com would be so foolish as to perpetuate this obvious ploy by CAIR to try and guilt Americans into allowing Islam to operate unopposed to the point of having Shariah Law in the future, is truly revealing in and of itself. Glenn, you need to check your editors on the Blaze.com news, as it appears you have some folks working for the Administration side infiltrating TheBlaze.com ranks!
well spoken. I also wondered how an 8 yo thought the military was coming to take her away if mommy and daddy weren't feeding that hate daily.
 December 24, 2015 at 10:10am
Now where would an 8 year old really get the ideal that soldiers were coming to get her & her family? Trump made no mention of gather up any Muslims currently in this country and deporting them, though the newly arrived, secretly brought in Muslim Refugees should be, in my opinion. Sounds to me like the little girls family has been talking and perhaps her Imam at the family’s mosque has been talking. As for the brave military folks vowing to protect her, when she grows up and radicalizes or help bring in Shariah Law as the law of the land and the families of the soldiers are made to convert or die, then maybe the gravity of their foolish statements might sink in. While I love and respect our military folks, they can be deceived as well, and the one’s making the comments cited above, appear to have drank the Kool-aide on the whole “Peaceful Islam” fantasy… to them I recommend they read the Qu’ran and Hadith, before making such an apparently, uninformed statement. Like it or not, according to the Qu’ran & Hadith, Islam is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. The 8 year old little girl should be far more concerned with fundamentalist or “Whole Book” Muslims coming for her and her family than ‘soldiers’. I hope the soldiers afford white, American, conservative, constitutionalist the same protection from the govt they pledge to this little girl.
As an 8 yr old, she clearly has deep political interests and probably follows Amanpour on CNN and perhaps The Guardian. She may even gloss over Brietbart! I know when I was 8, we were engaged in the battle of Khe Sahn/Vietnam, protests all over, LBJ was President, nuclear arms race rolling along...what do I remember? I probably became vaguely politically aware until the Vietnam war was ending which would have made me about 11 or 12. Most people will argue that social media and mainstram media add more to the fear factor especially when they follow the government narrative and/or agenda. I try to be objective and I sniffed this one out early. It was too easy to be honest. The mom has social media saavy if you check out her FB. She posts political aligned stuff (which is cool) and there are Quran prayer quotes (well within her right to do so) mixed with day to day stuff and even disaster assistance (thumbs up) and oddly as strongly as she states her positions on worldly issues...there were no anti-ISIS posts that I could readily find. Therein lies the problem, she makes it clear that Trump is their biggest worry on other posts but fail to address the big fat elephant in the room (ISIS),

Zap, it means that most illegals are not here to become Americans and assimilate into the American Culture, but rather essentially keeping all their traditions and forcing them on American society. Essentially the Illegal Aliens are more like invaders or colonist, than “immigrants”. If they are not wanting to be Americans, concerned about doing what is best for America, they are colonizing, not “immigrating”! The 1st act of immigration is not to break the laws of the country your are immigrating to, as it demonstrates total disrespect for the country you are supposedly immigrating to.

$12,500 per illegal, why so flipping high? They don’t have to be flown first class on the Concord! What are they give them $10K of traveling money? I would like to see the break down of those cost, that would total $12,500! Heck, I can fly 1st class round trip to Australia For less money! Sounds like govt waste hard a work to drive the cost way over what they should be! The Better plan is to use the self-deporting method – cut off all federal & local assistance to Illegals, prosecute any business that employs illegal, and fine anyone who sells or rents to illegals! They would be streaming back across the border of at their expense, not on the tax-payers’ dime!

I don’t think that was a “Knock” bomb. Watch the first pop from the top of the apartment building. There is a rocket being fired from the top of that building, not something coming in. You can see the rocket’s engine glow a split second after the pop. “Knock” bombs are essentially dumb bomb – no explosives, and weigh about 2 to 5 lbs. The plume on the top of the building is from the kicker charge of the rocket that gets it out of the launcher. Knock bombs fall more then 25 seconds before the main ordnance hits. The purpose of the Knock Bomb is to give the “Civilians” time to evacuate the building… 25 seconds isn’t long enough. That said, if the IDF (IDA – Israeli Defense Air Force), will respond immediately when they see a rocket fired, which depending on how far the IDA air craft is from the launch site, take about 20 seconds to a minute or two of flight time. The article accompanying this video is wrong about that being a knock bomb that was dropped.
But, but it was on CNN!! They could not have gotten it wrong.
Yeah, I saw that too. Rocket launched from rooftop and a few seconds later, retaliation. Pretty effin sweet.
Great observation. I was thinking the time span between the purported "knock bomb" and the actual missile hitting was too short. The 25 secs wouldn't allow the terrorists (especially those shooting from the top floors) to get out of the bldg. That is a brilliant observation on your part. Are you military?
I'm not sure if this changes anything about your post....but I wanted to respectfully point out that this video was edited around 11 secs (according to my time stamp). We really do not know how long there was between the "knock" and "boom".

Like so many others have stated… “This is news?” Kathy was never a true Christian, as “True” Christians don’t just stop being Christian. Christianity or Following Yeshua Hammashiach, is more than just saying you believe and taking a dip in public forum! It is akin to “True Love”, when you truly give your heart, mind and soul to Yeshua, it is forever, not something you give today and take back tomorrow. There are a lot of folks who made emotional commitments to “God” or “Jesus”, but they were merely caught up in the moment, during an emotional high point, but essentially is “spiritual lust” if you will! Once they get past that emotional high point, they really haven’t changed nor given their hearts, minds and soul to the Holy Trinity, and they continue to live like the rest of the world. As the Bible tells us, ‘You will know them by their fruits…”, and we aren’t talking apples and bananas here! Ms. Perry’s fruit has been pretty black for some time, and it was obvious she didn’t have a real relationship with the Holy Trinity, so this no revelation to any real Christian. All you have to do is watch one of her video’s or listen to one of her songs, and it really is crystal clear where her heart is NOT.

It never ceases to amaze me why our congress members of either House of Congress, make any such trips abroad! Why?! Isn’t that what the State Dept is for? Why should taxpayers be on the hook for the tremendous expense of self-serving congress members travel abroad??? What authority does McCain or any member of the Senate or House have to make any kind of deal, other than an under-handed kind of deal?

Fact is often stranger than fiction, so unless there was a note or message explaining the reason for his action, or unless the children’s father knows of some reason his father-in-law was at odds with his wife (chidren’s mother), the rest is just speculation, and not worth the time to type out here. It was a horrible and thoughtless act on the women’s father’s part to subject those children to their grandfather killing their mother and aunt in front of them! They will be scared for life, as a result of this!

It makes them feel “Unsafe” because they are not sure they are right! So if anyone raises an opposing view or thought, it feeds their fears that they could be wrong about the whole “No God” thing, which translates into “Unsafe/Insecure” feelings! The Progressives/Liberals for the most part can’t offer a valid argument to discount/disprove the existence, so they need to silence those with opposite or non-supportive positions to their own! What is remarkable is that it only takes 1% to 5% of the group to stifle/strip the other 95% to 99%’s Constitutional rights!

I couldn’t clearly hear the prayer! I only caught bits and pieces! It is a shame we had only someone’s cellphone or video camera’s poor quality and cluttered audio recorded from way back in the auditorium to hear this prayer! I do applaud them for not letting 6 students stopping over 100 more students from exercising their 1st Amendment rights!

All that smarts and they still wipe their butts with their hand! Hummm! If they are the “Fathers” of modern mathematics… WHAT HAPPENED?!?! Until the Westerners found oil and came in and showed the Arabs and Persians how to build modern building and build highways and install electricity, most of them were nomads, wondering around the Middle Eastern deserts! If they were truly the Fathers of Mathematics, flight, aeronautics, nuclear physic, electrical engineering, thermal dynamics, and other high technologies should be common place in the Middle East, and High Tech capitals of the world! But for some reason they have to play catch up, and send their youth out of the Middle East to obtain top educations. Isn’t it funny that the most technologically advanced country in the Middle East, is Yisra’el!?! While their enemies (every Arab country in the Middle East) has to buy high tech weapons from other countries outside the Middle East. Help me out here, what is wrong with this picture?! You would think that the folks that invented something as important as Mathematics would be a little more advanced that just post stone-age!

Simply AMAZING! Folks like RNM and Encinom, truly test the 1st Amendment, & are a testament to the generosity of this website! In the midst of this horrific event these knuckleheads & their ilk, find it necessary to come on this website and try to take shots at Glenn and MercuryOne! Simply mind-boggling!! In all honesty, I could care less if Glenn was mugging for photo opts, as long as he is there with aid & helping, who really cares. I don’t see the MoveOn.Org’s or other Lib organizations there offering any kind of help. The local officials don’t want looter and tourist there, but I am sure, if you want to offer help, you can and they will direct you where to go to help them. As for the Salvation Army and Red Cross, you should check to see how much of your donation actually gets to the people in need! After skimming off administrative cost and paying staff, about 60% – 70% of you dollar actually get to the folks in need. You can bet if Glenn says 100% of your donations through Mercury1 is going to the victims, 100% is going to the victims! Don’t believe it? What do you suppose would happen if 100% didn’t go to the victims, and you can bet there will be audits, if not by the various lib watchdog groups, by the IRS! If 100% didn’t go to the victims after Glenn announcing it would, his Mercury1 would lose all credibility, and you can bet that isn’t going to happen. I don’t believe Glenn is anything but genuine, but I don’t care if he isn’t as long help ge

…and small deer, dogs, cats, geese, alligators under 7′, even small children. Even though I had Boas and other snakes for years as pets, the big pythons, boas and non-native lizards that have been release, escaped or got loose due to hurricanes, have to go, for the sake of the environment, as they are destroying populations of native animals as well as putting domestic animals and people in danger. The zoological parks, zoos and animal rehab centers are at capacity already from collected pythons and non-native lizards, so the python would have been destroyed officials, more than likely, if he had turned it in alive. Unless you are equipped to transport large snakes, animals of that size would be dangerous to try to keep alive. And it doesn’t take a very large knife to kill a large snake, it is a matter if piercing the snakes relatively small skull, so a 4 inch lock blade knife driven into the top of the snakes head would easily dispatch it, especially since it was being held. If the snake was un-restrained (on the ground) and mad, I would be a different story. Even though they are non-venomous, they have fairly long curved teeth and can delivery a very nasty bite, with a high probability of infection! Snakes that grow over 10′ should not be sold as pets, unless licensed. It should be a felony to catch someone releasing non-native species into the wild as well!

Tough break, and he should have had better control of his tongue, but I don’t know if I would have fired him for it. With all the lies the rest of the news media is pumping into the general public, a couple of foul words in frustration, when he thought he was off-air, shouldn’t even raise an eyebrow!

You had better check with the 1st lady about that! Chocolate is on both Michelle’s and Bloomberg’s list of things to ban to stop obesity! Maybe if it shot unsweetened, dark chocolate, Bloomberg and M. Obama would allow it to slide! LOL!
