    Oh you mean Team Obama has made hash out of the Actual Time line.....and yes their Lies are so Obvious. See at First Obama said there was no ties to AQ. But then his Own Team.....were the Ones that stated they thought AQ out of Iraq may have been responsible.

    US Intel believes some Benghazi attackers tied to al Qaeda in Iraq.....

    U.S. intelligence believes that assailants connected to al Qaeda in Iraq were among the core group that attacked the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, a U.S. government official told CNN.

    That would represent the second al Qaeda affiliate associated with the deadly September 11 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

    Previously, intelligence officials said there were signs of connections to al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the North African wing of the terror group.

    The revelation that members of al Qaeda in Iraq are suspected of involvement in the Libya attack comes at a time when there is a growing number of fighters from that group also taking part in the Syrian civil war.

    The weakened al Qaeda affiliate has had a resurgence in Iraq since U.S. forces left the country at the end of last year. The group had used Libya as a source for fighters. In a 2008 cable, Stevens described a nearby town of Derna as "a wellspring of Libyan foreign fighters" for al Qaeda in Iraq.

    The latest intelligence suggests the core group of suspects from the first wave of the attack on the Benghazi mission numbered between 35 to 40. Around a dozen of the attackers are believed to be connected to either al Qaeda in Iraq or al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the government official said.

    According to the official, others in the core group are suspected of having ties to the Libyan group Ansar al-Sharia, and many of them are believed to be Egyptian jihadis.

    And just two hours later, one of the e-mails indicated the Libyan extremist group Ansar al Sharia was claiming responsibility for the attack on social media websites. "Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli," the e-mail said.

    Moreover, intelligence officials do not believe Ansar al-Sharia is solely responsible with indications now that some of the attackers were associated with al Qaeda in Iraq, al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and an Egyptian jihad network.....snip~

    Nice try with the conspiracy theory. There is no getting round Team Obama changing the talking points. Course that's exactly what the left wants most of those low information voters to think.

    Yes, you yell loud, but that does not mean there is a huge uproar about this because Benghazi "was a long time ago". And hey! We only accept loud yelling about Bush and Republicans. For this there is no statute of limitations and no restrictions on how much we can bash that prick. Fer eem, it is never a long time ago. That's why we believe our King Il Dong when he blames Bush. Git it?

    That really makes you more like the small child having a meltdown in a store because we do not give a damn that our King Il Ding Dong has lied, deceived and covered up to gain power. We really do not care. Not in the least. We embrace the motto of that great Oakland Raiders chief Al Davis... just win baby. Lie, cheat, steal... we don't care. Git it?

    Yes, it is loud for us Libs and everyone around hears it... though we will not admit it, for we are immune... or pretend to be, but most are really around the child's parents to lose it and beat the crap out of their brat because we are tolerant and open minded and non-violent PETA types who advocate abusing children and abortion and the like, and generally enjoy making comments about how stupid the child of Bush 41 is. Let's rephrase that; the truth is stupid. In other words, we are frustrated that some folks on the right are trying to force feed us the truth. It's not going to work. We have Kool-Aid... WE ARE IMMUNE! Git IT?

    Oh wait gotta head to the fridge... Kool-Aid is getting low, hey... I think I heard someone in Utah... never mind... it was the cat... And the cat said benghazi! Small "b" too... so you better cool it or we will go postal if you try and force feed us another thread about William Ayers... I mean Wright... ah... err... ah... nevermind I can''t remember. Hey a-hole... don't Bogart the doobie... and ahhh hell, where's my Kool-Aid... damn... quick... the immunity thang is wearing off.
    I take it you don't like people talking about Benghazi? Tough darts honey. Dead Americans and a coverup demand folks like you be kept up to date... up to the minute. After months of coverup... It's a fast breaking story now. Even some journ-O-lists have been forced to cover it thanks to the work of those men and women at FOX NEWS. Thank them.

    Hate to destroy your Kool-Aid tainted world... but someone has to do it.

    Stay tuned... a right winger somewhere will help educate you in your hour(s), days, weeks, years of denial. We are here to assist those who require it most.

    Re: Official: We knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack "from the get-go"

    Whats really funny is now.....they say(Team Obama) that it was AQ out of Yemen.

    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~

    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.

    The trail appears to have then gone cold. In early 2013, jihadists were driven out of many areas of northern Mali in a French-led offensive......snip~

    Re: Official: We knew Benghazi was a terrorist attack "from the get-go"

    AQAP is regarded as one of the most active and dangerous of al Qaeda franchises. It has tried to launch several attacks on the U.S. homeland. On Christmas Day 2009, a Nigerian recruited by the group attempted to blow up a plane flying into Detroit but failed because his device malfunctioned. The following October the group attempted to blow up planes heading to the United States with printer bombs disguised as air cargo. The packages were intercepted after a tip from Saudi intelligence. And in April 2012, a British informant working for Saudi counterterrorism thwarted a new plot by the group to bomb a U.S-bound airliner. The informant had infiltrated the group and was selected by them to launch the attack.

    AQAP was the first al Qaeda affiliate to comment on the Benghazi attack. On September 14 it 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. It did not claim responsibility for the attack.

    On September 10 -- at least 18 hours before the attack -- al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, in a video timed for the anniversary of 9/11, called for attacks on Americans in Libya to avenge the death of al-Libi.

    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.

    In the wake of the revolts that have shaken the Arab world, al Qaeda sympathizers have found new space in which to operate, and would-be jihadists have found new causes to embrace. In Syria, the al-Nusra Front has proclaimed its links to the al Qaeda affiliate in Iraq. Militants from Tunisia, Libya and elsewhere have gone to Syria. In west Africa, Nigerian jihadists with Boko Haram have established links with al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and trained in Mali.

    If AQAP sent members thousands of miles to help launch an attack on U.S. diplomats, it would show that even if al Qaeda central remains under pressure, its fellow travelers are finding new ways to continue its campaign of terror.....snip~

    ####, Nixon didn't even know about the break in until after it happened while Obama watched the live feed from an UAV that was above Benghazi while our consulate was under attack.
    I wonder how many leftists know that hi-lited in red? My bet is they think Nixon orchestrated the whole thing. I wonder how many know Hillary was part of the team bringing Nixon down. She should have known better... but she's a Clinton. Their 2016 ticket (remember they're a 2 fer 1) is all but dead now.

    Nixon at least had the class to resign, and few realize when he was defeated by JFK and there was evidence of voter fraud in a close election... Nixon didn't pull an Algore... for the good of the nation.

    The coverup is the killer, and Obama... seems to be right in the middle of it all. But Obama is no Nixon. He has no class.

One hopes and believes their leader is somewhat honest but unfortunately they are not which undermines government support. It certainly somewhat supports the recent poll where 27% think an armed uprising is in our near future.
    Now that's the thing, isn't it? We don't know EXACTLY what happened. What it appears so far is that a decision was made about allocating military and diplomatic forces. Was the wrong decision made? It would appear so, but then hindsight is 20/20.

    Decisions about military deployments can be mistaken, but they are made. They will be second guessed sometimes, and that's a good thing. Unless there was INTENT to see them die, I can't imagine how that's an impeachable crime.

    We all knew Nidal Hassan was a jihadist too. We can't call things what they are because of political correctness.

    Back during the early 80's I was in the reference section of a research library reading the records on Watergate and I would see the name of Hillary Rodham keep popping up. She was a part of the radical socialist "New Left" who were doing everything possiable to bring down Nixon.

    It wouldn't be until 1992 when Bill Clinton was running for President that I hear the name of Bill Clinton's wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Where have I heard that name Hillary Rodham before ? Bill Clinton married a radical leftist !!!

    If you put Hillary next to Bill, politically Bill looks like a right wing reactionary.

    If you remember when Bill Clinton committed perjury under oath, Hillary kept blaming a right wing conspiracy because she thought the Republicans were doing the same thing that she did to bring down Nixon. What Hillary didn't understand, Nixon never lied under oath and perjured himself.

    I think with in the coming weeks we are going to see that President Obama is an incompetent President and was derelict in his duties on 9-11-12 as Cn'C. That there was a White House cover up on Benghazi to get Obama reelected. And Hillary Clinton will also be shown being derelict in her position as Secretary of State.

    The question is, will the MSM give Obama another complete pass again ?

    Will the Democrats do the right thing like the Republicans did back in 1974 when they told Nixon, it's time to go ?

    If you actually read the 9/11 Commission Report, every President going back to Carter gets those same warnings every morning.

    BTW: It was liberal political correctness that allowed the terrorist to board those planes on the morning of 9-11-01.
    See what I mean, tons of excuses for GWB, but when we know the truth about a pretty common problem of foreign attacks on state department people you make a overblown issue out of it. It is always someone else to you unless it happens to be the person you want it to be, and then the truth isn't good enough for you.
