I believe that TM was tired of being followed and decided to be the first one to pull the Stand Your Ground card and proceeded to put a beating on the Z man. The Z man was getting his butt beat and then decided to pull his own Stand Your Ground card and shot and killed TM. The lesson in all this is don’t bring fist to a Stand Your Ground contest because the other party probably has a firearm.

The DOJ is investigating this one isolated incident for civil rights and other potential law violations and has been given the green light to proceed by the boss. Also, the leadership in the black and liberal community are fanning the racial flames and none of these parties want to let the verdict of this jury stand as is. These type of actions by the parties mentioned are not unique in our great lands history and do have some precedence, like way back in 1692/93; do the Salem Witch Hunt Trials ring a bell. (sarcasm)

There is one good thing that may come out of this massive government collection effort. More citizen may decide to use the USPS to conduct their personal business and this may help get the USPS out of its budget deficit. I don’t think U.S. citizens have to worry about some U.S./foreign government agency reading or saving copies of all our snail mail unless they happen to be in a POW camp or federal prison.

Sometimes I like to think way outside the box and when I do I am normally wrong. This is my pet theory on these NSA/Government surveillance programs and the leaks coming out about the
programs capabilities and reach.
My Theory (from way out in left field); Portions of these programs capabilities/reach and some/most of the leaked info are part of calculated U.S. Strategic Deception operation, smoke and mirrors if you will.

The rescue went as well as could be expected considering the situation. Yes we should of been better prepared and hopefully 0n 9/11 2013 we will be. If the military would of sent F16′s as requested we would of had to also rescue two pilots after they ran out of fuel. I think that we will find that when your caught by surprise like we were in Benghazi (note; we should not have been caught by surprise) it will take the military more than 8 hours to spin up a capable response. As a matter of fact i can not think of one similar type rescue incident where we accomplished a rescue in less time then we did in Benghazi. The real problem with Benghazi based on the information we have as today is the attempted cover up/sugar coating of facts.
WAVE: You sound like someone droned in here from Obama Central. Nice try to put political lipstick on a pig.

The latest information I have seen on the rescue effort in Benghazi is from the second in charge who was in Tripoli and is one of the whistleblowers. There were two rescue flights launched from Tripoli to Benghazi. One flight with 6 civilians at 0130am and a second flight with civilians at 0630am. The second flight was delayed by up to 3.5 hours because the military could not get their act together (not the fault of the special forces team in Tripoli). The military should of got the hell out of the way and not delayed the response of the real heroes.
The military delayed the special forces response? What the? The military brass receives orders from the Executive Branch. They don't act unless Obama and gang give the orders. They were told to Stand Down.

Let me add, I read on military vet sites that the Admiral of the Mediterranean Fleet refused the order to "Stand Down" and ordered to scramble the jets. The main phone rang again and his second in command hung up to turn to him with handcuffs and tell him he was being relieved of his command by DC. He then gave the order to Stand Down. I'm told that Admiral is still waiting to face charges of insubordination for refusing a direct command.

I think these whistleblowers will finally highlight the efforts of the real civilian heroes who actually accomplished the rescue. I think we will find out that the guys that accomplished the rescue were told to stand down by higher level officials but they told those officials to pound sand (disobeyed orders) and proceeded with the rescue. I also think they could of accomplished the rescue in much less than 8 hours if they were given the green light from the get go.

What I want to know about this incident in Benghazi is why the civilan personnel that accomplished the rescue of these US citizens under attack is getting little or no recognition for maybe one of the greatest rescues in US history. The way i understand the attack on our personnel in Benghazi lasted about 8 hours. The US Ambassodor and one other US member was killed in the first 30 minutes. I don’t think these first two death could have been prevented by any response forces available at the time. Two more US personnel were killed while fighting off attackers and awaiting recsue sometime during this 8 hour window. A rescue force of US civilian and Libyan nationals was assembled in tripoli and responed via aircraft to Benghazi and successfully extracted all US personnel under attack. Based on other similiar historical US rescue attempts not many come close to being this successful in such a short amount of time.
