FOIA requests have already established that the State Department (during her tenure) was aware of arms being shipped from Benghazi to Al Nusra in Syria. The names of the parties involved have been redacted (meaning it was likely us, or our "friends"). So yes, it is in there.

But since so many Republicans are for arming these people too, I wouldn't expect them to focus much on it. And supporters of Democrats don't care what their people do, just so long as they aren't Republicans.

After you wade past the trolls, Disqus is already the best fact checker for any story out there. Obviously, you have to follow up with a search to confirm what you read in the comments, but that's where I usually find the most important (unreported) portion of most stories.

Same is true of slashdot. Which is why most of us don't even RTFA.

Comment That Explains My First Notice (Score 1) 224

I always VPNed to Canda for torrenting until I got a notice for torrenting a show about pirates (ironically enough). Wasn't sure if it was the VPN provider cracking down or a Canada thing. Haven't had any issues after switching to another country.

I do wish the movie/TV industry would sell me the content in an acceptable format though. I haven't pirated music in many years. Not since I could get a decent quality, non-DRM MP3 for a reasonable price. Money is not the issue for me, so much as the video format.

A rock store eventually closed down; they were taking too much for granite.
