Pusa is a genus of the earless seals, within the Family Phocidae. How appropriate is earless?
Camp Chapman attack, the 2011 Haqqani network attack on the Kabul embassy and ISAF headquarters, numerous other assaults in Afghanistan too.
Yeah, Rand Paul really Comic Book Guy'd that one.
WORST. TRAGEDY. EVER!

trolling or non-trolling. You get harder to read everyday
State Dept is completely separate from CIA and NSA, which is where the preventative stuff comes into play. . State got numerous requests for more security for several embassies and consulates and didn't do anything.
This is clearly not the worst tragedy since 9/11, but it's bad. It showed the bad guys they can come on our turf in remote spots in the world and have some success with their message.
At a minimum, she could have dressed better and dropped the glasses. If she runs in '16, I would expect that video to run a lot.
I think it's hard to argue that State doesn't play an extremely significant national security role.
Though even if you're only confining the definition of national security to intelligence agencies, State has its own intelligence wing (INR) and is considered part of the intelligence community.
I've never disliked Hillary. I can't imagine her running in 2016 though. Her time has passed.
Conservatives have this weird fascination with her.
Wait since when did POTUS become PUSA?
POTUS is the first picture, PUSA is the second.
I googled PUSA to see if it was a real thing and that "band" was the first search result...if someone is going to troll at least do some rudimentary research.

..a congenitally based lying woman by some descriptions.
Her performance before the Senate today was aided considerably by her delay in testimony because of a probable faked injury allowed her prep time and coordination time with Clintonista pros and other Dems. The preparation had her almost sounding believable today! I will say this: she has the best fabricators helping her. I think she could, with time prepping with these people, turn chicken feathers into chicken salad for listeners.

Come on...do you honestly think she faked her injury? What about her blood clot? Were all the doctors involved in this conspiracy too? Has she been planning this for the past 15 years, leading all the way back to the 1990s when her first blood clot was discovered?
hahaha good one... oh wait, you were serious?
Fire Mike "FCS is legit" London
I'm not sure what the motivation for faking her injuries is supposed to be either. How would today's hearings have been different if they'd happened a month ago?
If you're going to say the exact same thing after 75% of my posts, could you at least be entertaining?
I'll put it in terms even you can understand: If I wanted to read someone say the exact same thing over and over again, I'd just read Obama speeches on the economy.
tagterp, enjoyable as he can be, has a history of believing conspiratorial things in the name of "getting the truth" or some other populist silliness. He piloted the Birther ship for a time before he ran aground the shores of reason.
I had to try and convince him that Hillary and Bill would have sniffed that out if there were even an ounce of truth to it, but apparently now the same person he didn't think capable of doing that is now capable of wide-scale medical fraud for some indeterminate political purpose.
She wasn't going to be Secretary of State anymore, so there were no real short-term political consequences. And if she ever runs for President, the issue will be dutifully brought up by any conservative with a pulse and half a dozen SuperPACs, whether she had testified the day after it happened, or 6 months after.
Vast left wing conspiracy!!!
So if they're not a real band what are they?

"The drummer for Maryland's pep band just freaked out: 'They're trying to slow the game down,' he screamed. 'Get up on them, get up on them.
Probably chicken-or-egg...the 'fascination' comes from her (and Bill's) well-known ambitions for her to become President, which she had to step back from because of Obama, but she's now the anointed one in terms of party establishment preference to succeed Obama. People like Cuomo and O'Malley are going to have to find a way to rise above her if they want to be President.
I don't know if her time has passed, but I do think 2016 is do or die for her. And it's pretty clear she's been maneuvering for a campaign.
Am I getting on your nerves?
Yeah, she either goes now, or that's it. She'll be too old in 2020 for a first term. She'll already be pushing it in 2016.
I think voters' memories are pretty short, so the Benghazi issue will be a negative in 2016, but nothing deal-breaking. Especially when you add in the frontrunner angle, first woman President potential, etc etc. It will fade, barring some bombshell that comes out proving criminality rather than incompetence.
Yeah, I don't think she has many specific negatives, but there is plenty of "fatigue" about her though.
The "health" issues are only from the last month or so, how about the previous 3 months? Her behind should have been there before October but there was a little thing called an election. This $hit show stinks to high heaven...soooooo many layers to it. Before, during, after the events of 9/11/12, hard to say which is worse. Epic coverup, good thing the MSM loves this administration!
lol at Cuomo or (especially) O'Malley getting any traction for 2016.
Hilary will be the overwhelming favorite, assuming her health holds up. If she isn't well enough to run, it's going to be a clusterfuck, between Crazy Uncle Joe and Cuomo and a bunch of other also-rans. Maybe a young gun like Booker would take advantage? :pray:
NYCTerp05: i guarantee you my child won't turn out gay
I believe nothing coming out of her mouth. She would use anything to promote herself, and the truth is completely expendable.
