    so sad.


    Your avatar looks like I imagine Obama looked when they asked him for a decision on this issue before he took off for "Vegas, Baby!"

    ughhh! another conservative that claims to be an "independent"

    why not just label yourself a conservative and be done with it? Ohhh, that's right, it's too embarrassing to be called or be associated with conservatives these days.

    If we had left it to the Administration to get the facts out, we would still be hearing that the attack on our Benghazi consulate was a spontaneous protest in response to an offensive video. As was the attack on our embassy in Tunisia. It was responsible journalism that forced the adinistration to finally.....after days and days and days of giving us false information....to admit that it was a planned and orchestrated terrorist attack and they had known that from the beginning.

    Why are you not angry with the administration for not 'waiting to get the facts out' before feeding us a blatant lie?

    Why are you not angry with the administration for not being ready to go to the aid of personnel stationed in dangerous places?

    Either Obama and his spokespersons knew the truth from the beginning and buried it--not acceptable--or they are allowing and accepting blatant lies from their own Administration--not acceptable--and are not on top of what is going on under their very noses--not acceptable.

    There is no way that Obama can put lipstick on this pig.

    The source of the leaks exposing the extreme lies, diversions and knowledge the Whitehouse had, plus minute to minute details, knowledge there are emails, radio transmissions and two Predators filming it all is leaks by the CIA - which openly defined orders to "stand down" - not just the Navy Seal there but the Special Ops team in Italy.

    When one of the commanders on one of the aircraft carriers offshore (you know, one of those ships that airplanes can land on as Obama snidely said in the debate) was asked if there was any record or defensive response they could have undertaken, his answer was "ABSOLUTELY" - but that he could not receive authorization - FOR SEVEN HOURS!

    It seems clear that Obama knew and was in communications with the Situation Room within the first hour - and that his singular thought was struggling with "what are the various political implications of decisions I might make?" - making no decisions at all as a Special Ops Seal Team was radioing that they had a targeting laser on the mortarr site begging it be taken out. Hour after hour Obama ordered nothing be done at all.

    The, relying on a total cover-up, declared it just a riot that went too far and blamed in on some unheard of video - not figuring the CIA would turn on him for the president letting their men die - nor counting on the Navy getting very pissed off about this too.

    They died because the president's only concern was his personal political goals and relying on a cover-up.

    Absolutely.

    I also wonder if the reported 'lull' between the two separate attacks may have confused the issue.

    (Do we actually have ships that PLANES can land on?!!!)

    With all the information that has come out about this in the past few days it looks like these brave men that serve our country were "expendable" in the eyes of the Dear Leader O'blunder who could have save them but apparently felt they were expendable cause O'blunders re-election is more important than American lifes, at least in the eyes of O'blunder, his administration and the legions of blind followers that would attempt to make O'blunder a dear leader for 4 more years.

    This President killed those brave Americans when he refused to send them help most likely because it could have turned into a much bigger deal with more casulties and the regime didnt want any bad press coverage before the election so they tryed to bury it with the Movie story. Too bad for them there excuse (the film) was so lame that only a complete nitwit would believe it and at least half the American people are much smarter than that.

    If this President doesnt lose in the election then he should be impeached for his actions in this which in my opinion is far worse than Watergate ever was.

    The article notes that this group of operatives was very small (it would be helpful, FOXNews, to give an exact number...).

    According to other intelligence, we know that officials were informed at some point after the attack that the ambassador and others had holed themselves up in a panic room, built to withstand just this type of assault, with food to last for days. As it turns out, the ventilation system in the room was poor, and they died of smoke inhalation. But if officials thought Stevens and the others were safe in a panic room, it would make sense to wait and not jeopardize the lives of more people.
    The room itself wasn't secure. If it was, then how did they get to Stevens' body to carry it through the street the way they did. All things indicate that ground troups were needed to assist.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.
