I am no Hillary fan, and if people are long time PNJ participants they know have been pointed in my criticism of her for years, but this had nothing to do with the President or the SOS, or for that matter head of CIA making a mistake. This had everything to do with giving operational discretion to your officers in the field. This had to do with some folks living in a fantasy world who think politicians should micro manage our soldiers, and our cia agents. Stephens was simply the best. He was respected, and he was making tremendous inroads with the Libyan people.
I have alluded to the fact that there are great many people who did not want to see these kinds of operations successful. The military industrial complex, Al Queda, and the Nation of Israel would much rather have us spending massive amounts of money on weapons and depleting our nation's wealth while having a large military presence in States which pose a threat to Israel. This covert war neither spends trillions on weapons, depletes our nation's resources, or requires occupying armies policing real or suspected threats to Israel. Our national interest are separate and distinct from Israel's national interest, and making profits for the military industrial complex should not be the policy of this nation. So, what I really want to know is who was behind the killing of Stephens......I think it may not be as clear who those folks were working for, and that should have been our primary focus, rather than this dangerous and sophomoric political blame game.
