And DOD time line.
Sworn testimony from State Department and military personnel.
Just about everything authority out so what's to tell.
Is she gonna tell us that there wasn't enough security.
That we should've done more.
Honestly were all getting tired of the questions that we already know the answers to.
What we want to know.
Is why our consulate did not meet the minimum physical security standards why our ambassador pleas for help were ignored.

Why would anyone be afraid of us.
But -- I forgot.

So we threatened what the Red Line that we conveniently moved after it was crossed and then we claim that -- respected around the world.
All the while the Middle East chanting death to Americans burning our flag while we give them money.
And so here we are another week where we don't react to the -- for Americans where we back off -- threats.
All the while continuing to -- countries who don't respect us our money.

-- to reaffirm to them that we are not strong.
That we don't mean what we say and we don't say what we mean.
To go to the beginning.
Punishment irrespective of its purpose must be swift and it must be certain.
The only thing that's certain right now is that we don't mean what we say and we don't say me me me.
