    Keep repeating that lie. Keep defendind these POS politicians Obama and Hillary.

    We know there was a cover-up, as the State Dept E-mails were changed to reflect a protest that never was.

    They were told to stand down TWICE as people like you state there " wouldn't have been enough time" or that they were not armed , AFTER a 12 foot hole was blown in their wall in June.

    It's really disgusting, your'e willing to sell out and tell the Families to Fu** Off, because your more interested in saving your corrupt presidents ass than finding out who's responsible.

    it just goes to show how corrupt the left wing ideology is.

    Nothing has changed.

    The Obama administration spending two weeks, six weeks before the Presidential elections blaming the murder of four Americans on a You Tube video when the White House knew on the morning of 9-12-12 that the attack on the American consulate was a well planned and organized attack by Al Qaeda militia was just not a cover up but the administration was lying to the American people for Obama's own political gain.

    Your right about one thing, nothing has changed in the Obama administration. Obama continues to surround himself with liars, incompetent people and the entire Executive Cabinet Secretaries are second rate.

    The Damning Dozen: Twelve Revelations from the Benghazi Hearings



    Much of the media and liberal establishment simply ignored yesterday's Benghazi hearings. They were content to see, hear, and speak no evil -- which is typically the fastest way to kill a story in Washington. Others framed the proceedings as just another quixotic, partisan effort to hype a long-resolved story. Selling that template requires adherence to two fallacious assertions: First, that no major questions remain regarding the 9/11 terrorist assault on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya -- and second, that no new information emerged from the whistle-blowers' hours-long testimony. The former claim is outright insulting. The latter betrays either aggressive ignorance or wishful thinking. House Oversight Committee Republicans' focused questioning extracted quite a few nuggets of relevant information. For their part, many committee Democrats were focused on unseemly efforts to attack, distract and smear -- all employed as they cynically groused about Republicans "politicizing" the investigation. Cutting through the nonsense and dissembling, here's what we now know:

    1) Murdered US Ambassador Chris Stevens' second in command, Gregory Hicks, was instructed not to speak with a Congressional investigator by Sec. Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, Cheryl Mills. Hicks said he'd "never" faced a similar demand at any point during his distinguished 22-year diplomatic career. When he refused to comply with this request, the State Department dispatched an attorney to act as a "minder," who insisted on sitting in on all of Hicks' discussions with members of Congress (higher quality video is available here):

    (2) When Hicks began to voice strenuous objections to the administration's inaccurate talking points with State Department higher-ups, the administration turned hostile. After being lavishly praised by the president and the Secretary of State for his performance under fire, Assistant Secretary of State Beth Jones instantly reversed course and launched into a "blistering critique" of Hicks' leadership. He was subsequently "effectively demoted." Hicks called Rice's talking points "stunning" and "embarrassing."

    (4) A small, armed US force in Tripoli was told it did not have the authority to deploy to Benghazi in the midst of the attack. Twice. Flight time between the two cities is less than an hour. Members of the would-be rescue contingent were "furious" over this obstruction. The witnesses said they did not know who ultimately gave the "stand down" orders, or why. If it was not the Commander-in-Chief calling the shots, why not, and where was he? Whistle-blower Mark Thompson, a career counter-terrorism official at State, said he called the White House to request the immediate deployment of a Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST) to Benghazi. He was told it was "not the right time" to do so, then was cut out of the communications loop.

    (9) The US government did not seek permission from the Libyan government to fly any aircraft into Libyan airspace, aside from a drone. The witnesses testified that they believe the Libyan government would have complied with any such request. The fact that none was even made indicates that there was never a plan or intention to rush reinforcements to Benghazi. This renders the "would they have made it on time?" argument largely irrelevant -- the facts in item #4 notwithstanding. Another important point about the "they wouldn't have made it" defense: The assault lasted for eight hours and took place into two waves at two different compounds. How could anyone have known how long the fighting would last? How could they have anticipated that ex-Navy SEALs Woods and Doherty wouldn't have been able to stave off the enemy for a few more hours? Help was not on the way. It was never sent.....snip~

    Re: U.S. Offers New Details Of Deadly Libya Attack

    'Ya know. There is plenty of red meat to attack Obama on. His assault on the Constitutional rights of American Citizens. Drone killings of women and children, which in my book amounts to premeditated murder. That's 2 important issues for starters.

    So why attempt sling the kind of fake bull**** they are making up out of thin air? It just does not make sense. So, what revelations came out of the Benghazi hearings yesterday? Nothing, of course, but that won't stop Republicans from continuing to destroy their own credibility, along with their own party. And while they are destroying themselves with bull****, they are allowing Obama to get away with the kinds of things that would have made even George Bush blush.

    If a Republican was in the White House four Americans would still be alive.

    Actually, if history is an indicator, a Republican WAS in the White House, and thousands of soldiers were killed or maimed because they were sent into harms way in the wrong country after 911. It also helped tank our economy.

    You guys get pretty dumb with this red vs blue crap. They are just different sides of the same coin. Someone wanted that ambassador dead and that's the only thing that makes sense.

    The Damning Dozen: Twelve Revelations from the Benghazi Hearings - Guy Benson
    “… because exact conditions on the ground in Benghazi were unknown……the CIF began to fulfill its tasking by pre-positioning at an intermediate staging location, Naval Air Station Sigonella (in Sicily, Italy). From the moment the CIF was ordered to move, it did not stand down until after all personnel (including the fallen) had been evacuated from Benghazi in a little over 12 hours after the initiation of the attack… the time needed from alerting the CIF to landing at the Benghazi airport is greater than the approximately 7.5 hours between the initiation of the first attack and the second one. As such, the time requirements for notification, load and transit alone prevented the CIF from being at the annex in enough time to change events.”

    Yeah a SOD and Joint Chief of Staff Saying They Never talked to Hillary and the State Dept Never Called for Assets.....wonder who was the ****ing Moron that screwed that pooch.



    General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the State Department never requested "support" in Benghazi:
    "Why didn't you put forces in place to be ready to respond?," Senator John McCain asked the general.

    Dempsey started, "Because we never received a request to do so, number one. And number two, we --"

    McCain iterrupted, "You never heard of Ambassador Stevens's repeated warnings?"

    "I had, through General Ham," responded Dempsey, referring to the commander of AFRICOM. "But we never received a request for support from the State Department, which would have allowed us to put forces--"

    "So it's the State Department's fault?"

    "I'm not blaming the State Department," Dempsey responded.....snip~

    Panetta, Dempsey: No communication with Clinton

    At a Thursday hearing in the Senate, Republican Ted Cruz asked both Leon Panetta and General Dempsey if they had been in contact with Hillary Clinton

    CRUZ: In between 9:42 p.m., Benghazi time, when the first attacks started, and 5:15 am, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what conversations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?

    PANETTA: We did not have any conversations with Secretary Clinton

    CRUZ: And General Dempsey, the same is true for you?

    Dempsey confirmed.....snip~
