'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America

Benghazi (; also: Bengasi ) is the second largest city in Libya, the main city (or capital) of the Cyrenaica region (or ex-Province), and the provisional capital of an interim Libyan government. The wider metropolitan area (which includes the southern towns of Gimeenis and Suluq) is also a district of Libya. The port city is located on the Mediterranean Sea. - Source: Wikipedia
Under growing pressure, the White House on Wednesday released emails that showed the talking points crafted to explain the deadly terrorist attack in Benghazi last year were changed at the behest of a State Department worried about political fallout.
Call it "Oval Office Couch Syndrome." By the second term "inside the bubble," presidents have completely lost touch with reality.
Silent for months, the former top deputy to slain Ambassador Chris Stevens has told congressional investigators that U.S. and Libyan officials on the ground believed immediately that the attack on the American mission in Benghazi was terrorism and not a protest gone awry as administration officials initially suggested.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is a national embarrassment. In congressional testimony this week, Mrs. Clinton -- under oath -- repeatedly deceived the public about her role in the Benghazi terrorist attacks.
With U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's withdrawal from consideration for the position of secretary of state, some have assumed that Congress will now be less insistent on a full accounting of the facts surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi that resulted in the murder of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
Republican senators said Friday that the State Department's investigative report on the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, does not address questions about the role of Cabinet officials in responding to the assault that night and mischaracterizing it afterwards.
To put it mildly, many in the Republican Party were not pleased with the outcomes of Tuesday's elections. This represents a national repudiation of reality: We have tossed out the doctor because we don't like his prognosis. The spending addict does not want an intervention; he wants more spending, no matter what.
Nearly two months after the murder of four American citizens in Benghazi, Libya, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, there remain many more questions surrounding this tragedy than credible answers provided by the Obama administration.
Bulldozers began knocking down the green walls surrounding Col. Moammar Gadhafi's main Tripoli compound known as Bab al-Aziziya on Sunday, as Libyan revolutionary forces said it was time "to tear down this symbol of tyranny."
With NATO's attention mostly focused on Tripoli, troops led by two sons of Moammar Gadhafi have flanked Misrata in a pincer move aimed at retaking the key rebel-held city in Libya's west.
The international military intervention in Libya is likely to last "a while," a top French official said Monday, echoing Moammar Gadhafi's warning of a long war ahead as rebels, energized by the strikes on their opponents, said they were fighting to reclaim a city under siege from the Libyan leader's forces.
Col. Moammar Gadhafi's air force bombed the airport in the Libyan opposition's main stronghold on Thursday after the rebels used seized planes and helicopters to launch attacks on the government's advancing troops, witnesses and rebel officials said.
