Seven years ago today Benghazi happened. Four brave patriots defending the compound before they were ultimately tortured and killed. And during the attack no response from those in charge at the State Dept. Can't bring myself to type her name.

I wouldn't let anyone do to me what I've done to myself
Yes, never forget those who died supporting freedom, and those on our own soil who would make us all subjects rather than citizens.
I've heard said that most people have 5 days in their life that are remembered above all others. These may include the death of a loved one, other personal tragedy or a national tragedy. They may also include good things. Mine include:
1. Murder of JFK - I was in class in 7th grade.
2. Loss of the Space Shuttle Challenger - I was at work in the Bank when another employee got the call.
3. 9/11/01 - I was getting ready for work when the news came on Fox. The first tower had been hit and they thought it was a terrible accident. We didn't know the rest until I was at work.
4. Benghazi - I was home watching the news of Fox. We didn't initially know much.
5. Election of Donald Trump - I was waking up in bed in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico when I read the news on my iPhone.

To me, it is an egregious example of a mainstream media sweeping an extremely important story under the rug.

Tonight, to remember the other September 11th, I will do my annual re-watch of 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,
As it is every year, I will finish the movie furious, but I will also remember.
All it takes...is all you got.

"As I take man's last step from the surface, back home for some time to come – but we believe not too long into the future – I'd like to just say what I believe history will record. That America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus–Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind.
Godspeed the crew of Apollo 17."

THANK YOU, RogB, for posting that reminder. I had ashamedly let that event slip my memory.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
A shameful day in this country when American heroes were in peril and the government looked the other way.

If you mean how others treat her, I agree. If you mean how she herself feels, don't bet on it--she has no shame, no conscience, no concern about others.

Very sad and shameful and very true.

They sent more troops and armament to arrest Roger Stone than they sent to defend Benghazi.

Some of the other things mentioned standout in my mind but I'll add another that was not as big. I was sitting in my moms station wagon listing to the radio while she was grocery shopping when they announced Elvis had died. I wasn't a huge Elvis fan but it was very unexpected at the time.
Our government, at least those in the know about Bengazi, should pay dearly for what happened. I am not sure if I remember correctly but didn't they try to blame the attack on a preacher burning a koran?
