    Try concentrating on the facts of the case. Patraeus didn't say what everyone thought he would.

    He certainly doesn't appear to have said what you thought he did when you posted the thread -- that's for sure.

    We should also keep in mind that most of we're hearing isn't what Petraeus said, but rather what Peter King says he said. King is a hard core Obama critic and Tea Partier.

    From what others are saying, it sounds to me like they will be getting away from the conspiracy theories about a supposed cover up to the real issue, which is what happened with security arrangements leading up to the attack.

    Rubio said, “I think increasingly the focus is going to be on the fact that despite a growing and significant amount of information being provided to the State Department about the growing risk in the Benghazi area, they did not take adequate enough security measures in order to secure the facility and the personnel within it.”

    “I think that’s what the growing amount of inquiries should be about in the days to come.”

    Petraeus testifies that Benghazi attack was terrorist act, lawmaker says - The Washington Post

    Obama 'could have' issued a stand down order? He also could be from the Planet Mars, too.

    You're so anxious to blame something on Obama, you have lost all credibility here. I understand they're still looking for somebody to blame for not notifying the Titanic that they were about to hit a iceberg. What did the President know about that?

    No, somebody gave them crap advice. Why in God's name would anybody tell Rice to go and tell a story that couldn't possibly be maintained if they knew it was a lie?

    We leave that sort of crap to the Far Right.

    I don't need anything else to blame Obama. He said in the debate the buck stops with him and why shouldn't he - you, and his supporters don't care that 4 men are dead, one a US ambassador that was not adequately protected. I've been in our consulates, our embassies, and the one in France is far more protected then the one in Benghazi - imagine that competence (lack there of). Obama is already a total failure to me so I don't need any further information to cast blame on him. His administration failed. He has taken no action other then to "investigate" and delay to get relected. No one was been fired even the woman who testified she personally turned down requests for more security. Since obama and his administration can't even find it necessary to replace such incredible failures I can cast the blame on him - but I will reiterate - people are dead and the left in America is proving beyond any doubt - they don't care!

    How did you feel about the 3000 dead because the Bush administration ignored CIA warnings about a Bin Laden attack? It seems to me that this proves the right doesn't care about America.

    After four long years of Obama, do you really have to ask such a silly question? The answer is: For political advantage in the election, of course!
