    for something that, as then secretary of state hillary suggested, doesn't make any difference, there sure is a lot of angst

    why all the hiding?

    Lawmakers demand access to survivors injured in Benghazi attack | Fox News

    some of the benghazi survivors seem to have suffered some severe injuries---news to you

    stay tuned:

    Rep. Trey Gowdy: Benghazi hearings 'coming quickly' - Washington Times

    an awful lot of questions, no?

    why all the warnings ignored, why no military response, why the blaming of the video, why the claim that aq was on the run, why has no one been held responsible?

    why did the president go to bed?

    Sean Smith's mom: Obama didn't follow up on personal promises

    and how could anyone in the white house suggest that none of it makes any difference?
    I couldn't find any other news source besides Fox reporting this. Why not if it is true?

    This is a classic case of bad decisions made by an administration based on faulty intel. Kind of like Iraq - bad decision based on bad intelligence. That is comparable. Politicians concocted obvious lies to cover up the fact that they were wrong. Politicians went on TV to perpetuate the lies. In the end, nobody wants to own up to the fact that they made a mistake.
    Your'e unbelevable. Patreaus under oath testified they knew IMMEDIATELY that it was a terroist attack, not a " demonstration " over a YouTube video.

    So NO false intel, just LIES about dead Americans to look good for a election. If they would lie about that, they would lie about ANYTHING.

    Youv'e got NO room to critique Limbaugh if you can't even muster up the integrity to be objective.

    And again, when did Limbaugh or any other Radio Talk Show Host lie about a terror attack and when did he lie to the family memebers of the victims of said terrorist attack ?

    Ignore Fox and focus on the Congresional testimony.

    What did Patreaus say under oath, and what did the Obama administration say days after.

    Also, disregard the liberal narrative that " Fox Lies"

    We tried blaming the attack on a bad movie trailer, didn't fly, tried denigrating the sources. Didn't work. Hillary fell on the sword and said it didn't matter, nobody bought it. Therefore, it must be Bush's fault.

    Prior to anything happening. PRIOR to the attack when they "ignored" it. That's the real issue here, right? Because if the real issue is politicians lying, I've got news for you...

    So before the attack, when Obama didn't send more security -- faulty intel is not criminal.

    Again, you focus on Limbaugh. Jimbo's focusing on Bush. I swear you guys are like cats -- ooh a squirrel!

    Faulty intel? Is that the excuse dujour? They had the IED attack at the front gate, the attempted assassination of the British Ambassador, a cavalcade of terrorists running in and out of the town so big that they got together and held a conference and none of these raised a red flag?
    But, it's not just what happened before the attack. It was the cover up that followed. The game plan was to blame some obscure video for the spontaneous act of violence. And obama hoped to explain it away at that. He was still blaming the video in a speech at the UN two weeks after the attack.
    But the attack wasn't spontaneous, was it? And it's success hinged greatly on the state department's inaction on the obvious threats in the city.
    So, what do we do? Do we blame no one and move on with our lives? Do we 'fire' (move to different position in the department) some mid-level functionaries in the state department and consider the matter settled? Do we allow those who are really responsible to get away scott clean?
    Four men died that night that didn't have to. And obama wants us all to just look the other way and forget that it happened.

    obama in the james brady briefing room this morning was asked by ed henry of fox

    "I'm not familiar with this notion that anybody has been blocked from testifying," said Obama. "So what I'll do is i will find out what exactly you are referring to."
    Obama: 'I'm Not Familiar' With Benghazi Whistleblowers Being Threatened | The Weekly Standard

    oh? is he familiar with victoria toensing?

    is he aware that benghazi survivors have reportedly suffered amputations and permanent brain damage from smoke inhalation?

    why won't he let congress have access to them?

    whether he ever finds out or not, we will

    stay tuned

    You keep "forgetting" that the CIA was in charge of security in Benghazi not the State Dept.

    The U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation, according to officials briefed on the intelligence. Of the more than 30 American officials evacuated from Benghazi following the deadly assault, only seven worked for the State Department. Nearly all the rest worked for the CIA, under diplomatic cover, which was a principal purpose of the consulate, these officials said.
