Foreign Policy

Do you believe that the military had no assets available to get to Benghazi in time to prevent more attacks on the US mission there? Was the State Department not properly protecting our diplomat or do we need to be concerned about our military readiness?

Kingsford Cat Posted 3 years ago
It has nothing to do with belief. We have already heard testimony from Hicks, second in command, that there were assets ready, willing and able to help our people in Benghazi. It's the stand down order given where the problem lays.
We had assets available. This situation is exactly why we have FEST.
The question should be why were they not allowed to help?

The only people who they had and did not send were a 4 person special forces team armed with 9 mm, who would have arrived late. Other than that, there wea nothing available that could have arrived in time.

We always have an aircraft carrier battle group in the Mediterranean Sea and while I'm not sure which one it was at that time, I do know that they are stationed in Norfolk, VA because my dad used to be stationed on them. FA/18 SuperHornets travel at speeds of over 1360 mph so I think that should tell you whether or not they could have made it on time. Since the carrier was between Roda, Spain and Tripoli at the time, it would have taken approx 50 min to have a bird over Benghazi (my dad has worked with these planes and others for 40 yrs). The military is ready but can't move without orders.

Gene Poole Posted 3 years ago
Democrats decided that the IRS Scandal is just political hype. How can they make such a decision in light of Lois Lerner's refusal to testify? Why were only a few leftist organizations flagged while hundreds of Conservative Groups were delayed, intimidated, forced to provide information on donors, etc. for Two Election Cycles? All the leftist organizations were approved. How can President Obama get away with this? Are all democrats willing to subvert our election process through illegal use of the IRS?

I have a 2nd Amendment question. What are your thoughts on the New York State ban on having more than 7 rounds of ammunition loaded into a magazine for a firearm that can hold 10? How is this supposed to prevent crime and violence? Thank you for your time.

Do you think President Obama has the authority to launch drone strikes against Americans suspected of being terrorists?

No one, President or other, should have the right to KILL Americans (who have not defected) and who have not been tried and found in a court of law to be guilty of a capitol crime. That said, a defected person or one who actively renounces his/her citizenship and is suspected of activity to damage America in any way should expect and be subject to death at the hands of the Military. The President has the duty as well as right to protect the country and every citizen in it . . says me.

Immigration
imcarisa Posted 5 years ago
Why would you want illegal immigrants to have a drivers license? As it stands now, American citizens has to provide birth certificates for proof that we are citizens. Calling them illegal immigrants has its own reason and needs no validation and we should not allow them to get a drivers license.

Personal identification should be based on the possession of a valid Passport, similar to most of the world's governments. Only the Federal Government can issue a US passport. Legal citizens never know exactly what a State government, like CA, will do with their issuance of drivers licenses.
