“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
When they say they don't know who changed the reference of the terrorists from Al Qaeda to something else, that's a lie. When Patreus says one thing in one testimony and something else in the next one, he had to be lying in one or the other. Clapper, too.
When Susan Rice and the president present the notion that this was a spontaneous demonstration that evolved into an attack knowing that it was a multi phased military action involving light weapons, RPG's and coordinated mortar fire, that's a lie and that lie was repeated repeatedly. We can either accept that they are lying or that they are completely out of the loop on information.
I am from the Viet nam generation and watched many demonstrations on TV. Funny thing. There were never 7 hour pitched battles that involved RPG's and coordinated Mortar fire. You'd think that mybe this might have been a dead, if you'll excuse the word, giveaway for the administration in assessing whether or not this might have been a demonstration or an attack.
Obama was held up as the guy that directed the "Kill List" for the drones operating illegally in Pakistan, but he apparently had no connection to the reaction for the doomed bastards in Benghazi.
Doesn't anyone ask the obvious questions of this guy? I loved his "news conference": Do you like my dress? What time is your bed time?
What happened to, "During the 7 hour assault on the Benghazi facilities that resulted in the assassination of the ambassador, were you ever informed in any way of the hostilities and if so, what was your response?"
If this had happened during the Bush administration, do you think this question might have been asked?
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
