Kerry clears State officials faulted in Benghazi report, allows them back on job.
WASHINGTON – The four State Department officials put on administrative leave following the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi have been allowed back on the job after being cleared by Secretary of State John Kerry to return, in a move one lawmaker decried as a "game of musical chairs."
Last December, the officials were removed from their posts after an independent panel criticized the security and “lack of proactive leadership” at the U.S. diplomatic compound. The stinging State report also called out officials in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs and said they “showed a lack of ownership of Benghazi’s security issues."

"So does your Republican wife agree with it, as you're implying or assuming I do?"
So does that subserviant husband of yours nod his head in appeasement everytime you present your view...
I'm assuming he does!
Enough with the conspiracies you old fool. You have lost it. Just look at your record. You are batting goose eggs. You are just hoping that one of your eggs stick. Ron Carlson wears a babushka and spreads nothing but unfounded gossip. He is NOT the walrus. He is the EGG lady. Your children must be so proud of papa.
To tell the truth, Veritas, I ignored that particular post you referenced.
So does your Republican wife agree with it, as you're implying or assuming I do?
Diversity of thought, opinion and speech makes a country interesting. One size (or opinion) does not fit all.
There's some truth for you, Veritas...

"Want to read a good article.. Google Sex deviant Clinton."
Who and what are you trying to scrutinize for the meanings you're willing to accept?
Veritas, who or what exactly are you pacifying or mollifying? If not your wife, is it yourself that you're nodding in appeasement to?
No, frankly, I don't get why you used the word, but keep on explaining it and maybe somebody will get it...
loco...Every day some Republican messiah steps up, swings and misses...Everyday we're reminded how lost the GOP is...Everytime some SSOB opens his/her mouth and "Appeases"...It's a good day for the other side...Since this happens every day, I nod alot and I nod in appeasement...Get it!

Where were the Republicans you ask?
After taking off almost all of the month of August , House leadership Boehner and Cantor have penciled in just nine workdays for September.
The Washington Post reported earlier this year that the 126 workdays scheduled for 2013 were actually an increase from the 2012 calendar.
$193,000 for 126 days. Free health care for life and they get NOTHING done.
As Newt Gingrich said yesterday:
"I will bet you, for most of you, if you go home in the next 2 weeks and talk to your Congressperson and you look them in the eye and ask them what is their positive replacement for Obamacare, they will have zero answers."
"As long as we're negative, as long as we're vicious, as long as we're tearing down our opponent, we don't have to learn anything, and so we don't. This is a very deep problem"
