Off topic: I have been curious why I couldn’t see the comments section of The Blaze. I use Ghostery as a cookies blocker. I thought this morning , “I’ll turn it off when I visit The Blaze”. Lo and Behold, I can now see the comments but the downside is I get 80 sites that query my computer. As I finish this post the count is up to 91.

“She also noted worries that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may not survive much longer after five years in captivity.”
Two points about this statement. 1) She worries about Bergdahl? She obviously was not worried about the people she had in Benghazi. 2) Bergdahl was not captured. He knowingly and willingly left his appointed post, which is a violation of his General Orders and went over to the enemy’s side.
This soldier needs to be held accountable and responsible for his actions and any deaths that can be proved in a General Court Martial.

You're onto something major on Benghazi. I believe with a gut feeling that Hillary was INSTRUMENTAL in convincing the POTUS to hold back help for our people; left to get murdered and sodomized. I wonder in her big upcoming FOX interview if that scenario will be provided? I won't hold my breath!

I am of the same opinion. There is more to the story and we will need Paul Harvey’s spirit to tell us “the rest of the story”.

Being a customer of the Minneapolis VAMC, it provides excellent medical care. It is recognized in the local communities as an example to emulate.
The real problem lies in two areas. The first being the performance evaluation system for managers and the SES. They won’t get their coveted bonus unless they meet the metrics established by National. One of the metrics is patient appointment waiting period. Thus they encourage the employees to “fudge the system”.
Secondly, when you provide data to National (ex; appointment waiting period) that is in compliance with directives there is no need to provide additional funding for doctors, nurses, technicians, etc. It is an endless loop.
The regional and facility directors are the primary culprits. They have put together an elaborate web of false data that now has them trapped. They can’t get additional monies to provide healthcare to the growing numbers of veterans because they have reported everything is “alles gut”. Their deception is now being exposed for the nation to see.
I agree with almost all you say... now the part that bothers me. Several years ago the VA was instructed to call us "CUSTOMERS" Personally, I resent that term. I am not a SHOPPER, I am a VETERAN who receives belated "WORKMAN"S COMP" services. I "paid" for them any years ago. I wonder if Wife or Husband feels like they are customers to each other for services they render to each other? Food, House, Child care..Hmmm. It is a relationship... no CUSTOMER there. We have to be careful of the names that are picked for US. Did you know that POW-MIAs was changed to DUSTWUN..Definition: See duty status - whereabouts unknown. It seems a "Kinder Gentler" Definition. Be careful what you want to be called.

This is what a certain VAMC told its appointment makers to do: – Give the patient an appointment at whatever date was next available, but log it in the computer as the date the veteran had asked for.
Snark is practically used 95% of the time here.
when someone isn't participation in the Palin for President lunacy or some other
You champion people like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz who have destroyed
them selves with one ridiculous statement after another.
The issue does that make ME a troll for observing that?
Monica Lewinsky? OBAMA caused the shutdown?
Am I supposed to march in lock step to such childish twaddle or
risk being called a troll?

Forgot to add: She is not here because she is homosexual, she is here because she is the result of a heterosexual act between a man and woman with intent to create life.

It is homosexual not gay. Stop twisting words to mean something they are not. Also, so what!
