In yet another bizzare Obama move, it turns out the US is offering no rewards for info on the Benghazzi attackers. Considering Obama offered money for info showing that George Zimmerman was a racist, well, seems kinda strange. How oh how can they explain this?

OK, Holder didn't actually offer the $10,000 contract on Zimmerman's life.
That is a factual statement. Congratulations!

He did fail to prosecute the NBPP's murder contract.
According to the article that you provided, it wasn't a murder contract. It was a contract to perform a citizen's arrest. If such a thing is incompatible with federal law, you might have a point, but I don't know what law that would be.

The biggest problem is Billary slept thru the whole incident and ignored requests for additional security at the embassy, a total and utter irresponsible act that should have been treated as a crime

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/05/09/1208061/-Republicans-slashed-diplomatic-security-budget-still-trying-to-cut-more

"[A]s part of the Republican majority that has controlled the House the last two years, Mr. Issa joined in cutting nearly a half-billion dollars from the State Department’s two main security accounts. One covers things like security staffing, including local guards, armored vehicles and security technology; the other, embassy construction and upgrades. In 2011 and 2012, President Obama sought a total of $5 billion, and the House approved $4.5 billion."

"O’BRIEN: Is it true that you voted to cut the funding for embassy security?
CHAFFETZ: Absolutely. Look, we have to make priorities and choices in this country."

"Secretary of State Hillary Clinton emerged from a meeting with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) sharply critical of proposed Republican cuts to the State Department budget, warning they “will be detrimental to America’s national security.""

When will the GOP get off this Benghazi witch hunt?

I mean, did Reagan get this much grief after he cut and run after 200+ Marines were killed in Beirut, Lebanon?

And seriously, are attacks on our embassies anything new?

It's kinda like how the left handled the shutdown. They went to extreme measures to ensure citizens were inconvienienced, regardless of the cost. It's what they do.

$25B and counting that the Republican-led shutdown costs the economy. Think that was an inconvenience?

Amazing how the topic changes when the previous argument is lost.

So Zero's refusal to negotiate had nothing to do with the government shutdown? Both sides were at fault for that whole mess. And to let Billary's excuse for Benghazi be that she warned she didn't have enough in her budget is pure BS, she totally failed in her responsibilities to the Libyan consulate no matter how you shake it. She was asked for additional security on numerous occasions and their was a team of Marines within 2 hours of Benghazi at her disposal when the whole thing started. She failed simply put and should be prosecuted. Got I hate liberal apologists. Regarding Beirut our intelligence community failed, not Regan. There were numerous tips regarding that bombing that were ignored. Nowhere did I blame Zero for Brnghazi, I blame Billary and her blundering team of idiots.

Can you imagine if the Dems threatened shutdown because they didn't want to fund the Iraq War? Or if the Dems threatened to not raise the debt ceiling because they didn't want to fund a doubling of the Defense budget?

Shutdown and debt ceiling fight is NOT the way you get what you want. You do it by votes, and if there isn't enough votes, too bad. Get some more in your party elected.

Again, Benghazi Benghazi...so sick of this and the American people don't care. Dubya was warned about an impending attack prior to 9/11. You want to compare apples to apples, then there you are.

Frome of Referrence Reality Check

.... A discussion on why bounties / rewards are not posted for the killing of 4 US citizens in the attack in Libya.

Yes that is horrible and if and when we can identify the individuals responsible we shoul ddo everything we can to prosecute them....

However, why expect a diferent reaction from our government in this incident than in previous incidents..

Not pointing out numbers in relation to party affiliation.. just as s referrence:

Deaths in Libyan embassy attack - 4 (Barack Obama administration)

48 deaths in atacks on embassies - (Bush administration)

I was only able to find record of one bounty during the Bush administration in relation to 16 deaths ( Abu Musab al Zarqawi / Baghdada bombing)

I do not believe or was able to find any information regarding the additional 50 deaths of American citizens.
