    Oh no, primarily the lack of security and the repeated request that were ignored and the refusal of the administration to step up and provide military support while they were under attack for 9 hours because it would have made BO look bad. They got a drone their in 7 minutes according to General Hamm.

    And then the media's ( not all ) complicity in distributing " the video did it " narrative so it would make international news and spark new riots just to strengthen the false narrative.

    Obama "disappearance" for 12 hours DURING the attack and the fact Hillary convened a supposedly objective counsel that is NOW being put under investigation.

    How about the lies upon lies upon lies which includes Hillary's testimony and the dereliction of duty by those at the WH that cost those people their lives ?

    What, you didn't say anything or rebutt anything, so I figured you had nothing to say to refute what i said. Feel free to actually refute my statements in the future instead of some lame ploy.

    No, actually please do go through it for us. Explain how this person knows something that proves that this is more than just a state department screw up that killed a couple people in a violent foreign land. Because that has happened to every president in the past half century, and if obama has only lost 4 people to it he is doing pretty good compared to clinton, Buish Sr., Reagan, Carter, Ford, and many others. Explain to us how these 4 deaths even compare to 9/11 where bush jr. ignored reports that the attack was coming, and allowed for 3000 civilian deaths and a strike within america from america. Then explain to us why you were struck so silent when the information about his coverup came out. Because we would all love to hear why this is so much more important. Don't let me stop you from actually making your case.

    If all you are going to do is lame word substitution don't get mad at me because you cannot even come up with a bad excuse for your hypocrisy.

    Maybe if you weren't doing something similar to arguing with an empty chair and losing like your hero has been reduced to, you might have actually not wasted your time with a tactic that really wasn't very hard to counter.

    This thread isn't about 9/11 so please stop trying to take this thread off in to another direction.

    If you want to start a thread about who dropped the ball or who's policies allowed 9/11 happen or why Osama bin Laden thought he could get away with attacking America on it's own soil, start a new thread. I'll be more than happy to participate. I'll probably start where the first mistakes were made, back in 1976.

    Otherwise keep to the topic, Benghazi; 4 dead Americans; U.S. military being told to stand down while that attack was occurring; British FAF asking the Americans if they could go in and rescue the Americans and not receiving any response; Hillary Clinton dereliction of duty; Barack Obama dereliction of duty as Cn'C; Why two weeks of lying to the American people that it was all about a You Tube video; Who was inside the White House situation room watching live feed of the attack on the consulate; Why was Al Qaeda operating in Libya when Obama said Al Qaeda was on the run and was being decimated ?

    Good evening Bonz - I'll give it a try.

    1. Obama, and many Democrats, at their convention in August/September spoke about Al Queda and terrorists being on the run and decimated because of the policies and actions of Obama and the administration.

    2. Just weeks later, the attacks on the the Benghazi compound occurred and there were some initial reports that it was a terrorist attack but the administration's officials at the State Department and the White House chose to claim it was a "spontaneous protest" similar to what was happening in Egypt and elsewhere supposedly related to a web-video insulting to Muslims that virtually no one had seen.

    3. Hillary Clinton and others went on TV to apologize to Muslims for the web-video and even created an ad that was sent to Pakistan, Egypt and other countries apologizing for the video even though the government had nothing to do with creating it or showing it.

    4. This was all happening as the Presidential election was heating up and the President was vulnerable because this was the first time an ambassador had been murdered since Jimmy Carter's presidency.

    5. Even though reports from Libya by State Department officials, CIA officials and perhaps most importantly the media were showing this was a terrorist attack, the administration sent out Rice on the Sunday shows to claim it was not terrorism but spontaneous protests. The administration did not want their Al Queda is decimated meme to be shot down.

    That's the basic cover-up. The administration lied about the death of a US ambassador for presidential, political purposes.

    Now you see you have completely missed the point of tin hat conspiracy theories. Your imagination is so much better than the truth when you are a paranoid delusional like the benghazi guys are. This way you can imagine obama is actually siding with the terrorists and perhaps ordered the strike on the consulate using his secret kenyan muslim terrorists contacts, and he blew it up just to make Romney and the republicans look stupid in the last election by making stuff up abou......Sorry, i don't actually know. I have never personally been that delusional in my life.

    But if you want to know what actually happened it is pretty simple. We helped free libya. We set up a consulate in a pretty dangerous location and did not give it much staff. The people there seemed to believe that they could help the libyans establish their government and secure their land. They also seemed to understand the risk they were taking in being there, but believed in their mission. They did request more security, and it seems the request was denied by Hillary's office due to budgetary reasons. The local american haters noticed they were not well protected at the consolate and launched an attack on them that happened to coincide with an event in egypt where people protested a really stupid video insulting muhammed and muslims. In the confusion as to why it happened some state department woman went on some talk shows and said it might have something to do with the protests in egypt over the video. From the beginning it was called terrorism and it has been investigated to find the people who were responsible and blow them up.

    What the republicans think is actually going on has never actually been said. They do not even have a real theory as to what is being covered up, but they know it is horrible because they have no theory on what is being covered up and that makes it super spooky. Yes, your confusion is acceptable as everyone is generally confused as to why they are making such an issue out of it now. At least it made sense to blow it out of proportion during the election in hopes that Mitt could capitalize on it, but now they should just let it go.

    Well, one would be Clinton Cutting Security knowing what the Conditions on the ground, were in Libya. Then there would be that issue that Panetta and General Ham spoke of in not being able to do anything to assist in a battle that took over 7hrs.

    Also there would be the material that was chosen to be classified. Despite some material being in Emails and was put over Phone and Radio.

    Another issue would be that Team Obama knew Ansar Al Shariah who was acting security for us in Benghazi and was part of the attack. Yet none from the FBI went to see their leader. Who Stayed in a 4 star hotel bragging about it who really Controlled Libya. He was not taken in as a Suspect.

    Then there is that whole issue with the Sunni Cleric in Egypt who used social media to get 23 muslims countries to rise up against us all on 911, and as well as who was released after Mubarak fell from Power. The same cleric that caused those In Egypt to riot the Egyptian Embassy.

    Oh and that this attack upon the Benghazi was a Predetermined, Premeditated, and Pre-Planned. Unlike Team Obama had stated at first. Then agreed it was a terrorist attack. But that it wasn't AQ. As there are others that would want to do us harm too.

    These just for Starters.

    It's time the CIC answered up as to why security was weak and why he didn't authorize help for our people.

    What an utterly ignorant statement. Name one US Ambassador that was murdered doing his/her job during the Presidencies of Clinton, Bush Sr and Jr., Reagan, Ford.
    Ambassador Stevens was the first Ambassador murdered in office since the Carter administration - an equally disasterous presidency led by an imbicile who was more interested in his own image than the needs of his country, eeriely similar to the baffoon in the White House now.

    That is not to say that the murder of the ambassador was Obama's fault - it wasn't - but the cover-up after the fact was indeed led from the White House
