    Stay away from these political porn sites (websites that exist only to help you get it up and keep it up - you know, your blood pressure) and get your news from a real news source. I'm sure you can find a support group to wean you of this unsavory habit.

    Get back to us when you actually are dealing with objective information.

    Re: Benghazi: State Department's ARB Panel Is Under Formal Investigation

    cns:

    According to timelines of the Benhazi attacks released by the government, they began at 3:42 p.m. Washington, D.C. time when dozens of armed terrorists swarmed through a gate at the State Department’s compound in Benghazi. A U.S. security officer at that compound almost immediately notified the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, which in turn notified Washington, D.C. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff, were informed of the attack at 4:32 p.m. while they were at the White House waiting for a pre-scheduled 5:00 p.m. meeting with the president. According to government timelines, an unarmed Defense Department drone arrived over the State Department compound in Benghazi at about 5:10 p.m., while Panetta and Dempsey were meeting with Obama.

    In his testimony in the Senate Armed Services Committee last week, Panetta said he informed the president at their 5:00 p.m. meeting of what was going on in Benghazi. Gen. Dempsey testified that the meeting lasted a half hour. Panetta and Dempsey also testified that after the meeting ended they did not talk to President Obama or the White House again that night.

    Almost six hours elapsed between the end of the Panetta-Dempsey-Obama meeting and the deaths of Woods and Doherty at the CIA’s Annex in Benghazi. At about 5:30 p.m., when the Panetta-Dempsey-Obama meeting ended, the five State Department security officers, who had been at the Benghazi mission compound when it came under attack, fled the compound in an armored car to go the CIA Annex. They came under fire, were covered by CIA security officers as they evacuated the compound, and evaded an ambush between the compound and the Annex. The timelines indicate that terrorists continued to fire on the Annex until about 7:00 p.m. Washington, D.C. time, or about an hour and a half after the Panetta-Dempsey-Obama meeting ended. From 7:00 p.m. until about 11:15 p.m., there was a break in the fighting. But at 11:15 p.m., after a rescue team of security personnel had arrived at the Annex after taking a chartered private flight from Tripoli to Benghazi, the terrorists attacked again. This battle lasted about 11 minutes. It was during this time—about six hours since Obama’s sole conversation with Panetta and Dempsey--that Woods and Doherty were killed by a terrorist mortar and a State Department security officer was severely wounded.

    On Friday morning, CNSNews.com called the White House press office to inquire about where President Obama was, what he was doing, and who he was communicating with, after 5:30 p.m. on the night of Sept. 11, 2012. At 10:29 a.m. on Friday, CNSNews.com followed up by emailing questions to the White House press office. On Friday afternoon, CNSNews.com additionally followed up by calling the White House National Security Council press office and also emailing that office the questions. CNSNews.com also followed up on Friday afternoon by again calling the White House Press Office and emailing the questions again to that office. On Monday morning, CNSNews.com followed up yet again by phoning the White House press office and the National Security Council press office and emailing them the questions again. The White House press office Monday morning confirmed receiving the questions but did not have a timetable for when it could provide answers.

    At a hearing last week in the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R.-N.H.) asked Defense Secretary Panetta: “Did you have any further communications with him [Obama] that night?” “No,” said Panetta.

    “Did you have any other further communications? Did he ever call you that night to say how are things going, what’s going on, where’s the consulate?” asked Ayotte. “No,” said Panetta. “But we were aware as we were getting information about what was taking place there, particularly when we got information that the ambassador, his life had been lost, we were aware that that information went to the White House.” “Did you communicate with anyone else at the White House that night?” asked Ayotte. “No,” said Panetta.

    “No one else called you to say: How are things going?” asked Ayotte. “No,” said Panetta.

    Re: Benghazi: State Department's ARB Panel Is Under Formal Investigation

    now, y'see what even the mere threat of hearings can shake out of your most reticent correspondent in the way of, y'know, the truth?

    you remember truth

    she used to matter to your mother

    ah, what difference does it make

    is cnn cool? today:

    Sources: 3 al Qaeda operatives took part in Benghazi attack - CNN.com

    If the AQAP members were dispatched to Benghazi, it would be further evidence of a new level of co-operation among jihadist groups throughout the Middle East and North Africa, counterterrorism analysts say.

    According to one source, counterterrorism officials learned the identity of the men and established they had spent two nights in Benghazi after the attack. Western intelligence agencies began trying to track the men in the aftermath of the terrorist attack, but were always behind in their manhunt.

    They were later traced to northern Mali, where they are believed to have connected with a fighting group commanded by Moktar Belmoktar, a prominent jihadist leader, according to a senior law enforcement source.
    mr belmoktar, by the way, according to cnn, it turns out is that same fun lovin fella who committed the assault on the amenas gas facility in southern algeria in january, resulting in the deaths of 38 humans over 3 barbaric days

    aqap, emphasizes cnn---al qaeda in the arabian peninsula---"is one of the most active and dangerous of al qaeda franchises"

    aqap recruited the underwear bomber, ultimately subdued by passengers on christmas eve, 2009

    homeland secretary napolitano (who by any objective standard really must need to go) stupidly asserted that the system, which came within a failed detonator of a disaster over detroit, worked just fine

    Napolitano: "The system worked" - POLITICO Live - POLITICO.com

    it aired on cnn, so forget about it

    aqap did the printer bombs of october, 2010, points out cnn

    and also the april 12, 2013 plot, sniffed out by "a british informant working for saudi intelligence," to blow up a us bound plane (news to me)

    did they view the vile video, these advance men from aqap, before or after they were dispatched from yemen?

    on september 14, aqap "released a statement arguing the attack was revenge for the death of abu yahya al libi, a senior al qaeda operative, in pakistan in june 2012," notes cnn

    cnn: "on september 10, at least 18 hours before the attack, al qaeda leader ayman al zawahiri called for attacks on americans in libya to avenge the death of al libi"

    in other words, it wasn't a video, it was a drone

    cnn:

    In December, a U.S. official with direct knowledge of the investigation said authorities were examining whether the alleged leader of a post-revolution terrorist network in Egypt had played a role in the September 11 attack. Mohammed Jamal Abu Ahmed was released from jail after the downfall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and is believed to be the driving force behind a new militant group, according to two U.S. officials.
    cnn concludes: "if aqap can send members thousands of miles to help launch an attack on us diplomats..."

    what difference does it make, it was a long time ago

    I can agree that waiting for more facts is sensible. I'm waiting for Wednesday, when the name of at least one person will be made known.

    This story has already exceeded its allotted 15 minutes. Isn't there a section called Conspiracy Theories where persons of such proclivities can exhaust themselves debating such nonsense?

    That all said, I for one, appreciate the frustration on Con brethren must feel dealing with the most scandal free administration since Bush I or Carter. They are forced to create these things just to entertain themselves. You spend enough time in the most sincere pumpkin patch and you are bound to see the Great Pumpkin eventually (if you don't freeze to death first).

    Yeah yeah yeah, ever hear of Fast and Furious? Not the movie but the gun walking debacle? Or the decision to spike the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case? The Shovel Ready ...or sorry, not so Shovel Ready President's transparency is about as see through as an ivy covered brick wall.

    Benghazi will end up taking him and Hillary down, a two-fer. And justifiably so. Nobody died in Watergate...but bet many who were on the side of Nixon were saying that lil ol bungled burglary was way past its 15 minutes as well.

    What they, Barry and Hillary, did there is atrocious, downright despicable... along with the cover up and deceit since then... impeachable.

    Funny how those things turn out.

    Yummy, pumpkin pie... Great Pumpkin Pie.

    Their biggest mistake here, outside the the obvious nonchalant attitude concerning Americans whom were under attack by AQ at the most inconvenient of times, an election, the ensuing cover up of their inaction brings up many questions of documents, whom was told what, and testimony to congress.

    Both Hillary, and Obama in one way or another could be criminally liable in this matter, and this not only would lead to impeachment of Obama, but destroy any dream of Hillary running in '16. Libs can't let this happen so they are pulling out all the stops from their usual playbook.

    Mock people asking questions
    Isolate, ridicule, destroy credibility
    dismiss.

    It might work. With the weak assed leadership in our side, calls for the necessary select committees, and such may be denied by our own crier of the house....

    I hope it isn't so, but can't rule it out.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Don't forget those things called references which usually gives a link straight to whatever news source has it.....most come with Sites that are about giving out the news.

    Just an FYI.....kinda like a heads up moment.

    Hiya NB .....well at least the FBI did manage to get some material out there even before Wed.


    FBI releases photos of three men from Benghazi attack site

    The FBI on Thursday released the photographs of three men it said were at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, when it was attacked last September

    FBI releases photos of three men from Benghazi attack site

    Course, then 2 days ago they found out AQ had paid us a lil visit.

    Sources: 3 al Qaeda operatives took part in Benghazi attack

    Several Yemeni men belonging to al Qaeda took part in the terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi last September, according to several sources who have spoken with CNN.

    One senior U.S. law enforcement official told CNN that "three or four members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula," or AQAP, took part in the attack.

    Another source briefed on the Benghazi investigation said Western intelligence services suspect the men may have been sent by the group specifically to carry out the attack. But it's not been ruled out that they were already in the city and participated as the opportunity arose.....snip~

    Looks like things are about to get very Real for Team Obama. After all that talking about Denials and whatnot from Team Obama.....it really is looking like not only did Team Obama Drop the Ball over Benghazi. But over the 911 Anniversary.

    Myself.....I do think that if Obama wouldn't have been so desperate at that time with the Election in Sept of last year, and wouldn't have been out partying. That he would have had some better vision. He might not have been able to save anyone. But then again he could have had more on alert, rather than waiting until after the fact.
