    Well, I'd like to know what they possibly hope to gain by continuing to keep this story in the forefront. To me, Rep. Issa is simply on a witch hunt, nothing more. Again, I don't mean to downplay the death of 4 Americans who served their country well and with distinction. So, please don't misunderstand me here. Nor am I attempting to play politics and defend the President nor his Administration. I'll be the first to say those involved with trying to change the storyline should own up to it. But then what? It's not like Benghazi was some TOP SECRET mission to invade Lybia or some weapons smuggling deal gone completely wrong (let's I hope not).

    So, what's the point of continuing to dredge up this issue and keep it in the spotlight?

    Clearly, I've missed something. Maybe you guys can clarify things for me. Make me understand from your point of view.

There were weapons of war all over the place and a compound would have been hard to defend against heavily armed supporters even with staff.

    As for why we did not invade libya and start killing their people, countries tend to dislike the US charging into sovereign nations without permission from their governments. Yes, i know US citizens were dying, but that does not mean the US can operate in whatever way it wants to internationally. 4 people does not make a war with libya. Sorry, but your expectations are well beyond international treaties and rules. Yes, I am glad obama did not decide to declare war on libya over 4 people.
    While some are asking question, your answering the questions while you are not in any position to answer those questions, at least to my knowledge.

    As revealed just over a week ago it was Hillary Clinton who cut funding for State Department Embassy security. But they refused to cut funding for green cars and electric fueling stations at American Embassies. Like grounding 1/3 of the Air Force squadrons because of the lack of funding but the Obama administration has no problem paying $57 per gallon for green JP-8 fuel instead of purchasing the regular JP-8 for $4. per gallon.

    It seems the entire Obama administration have their priorities wrong. Green fuel is more important than national defense ?
    Electric cars have priority over Embassy security ?

    White House Cover Up ?



    >" Even as the White House strove last week to move beyond questions about the Benghazi attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2012, fresh evidence emerged that senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled the country about what had happened in the days following the assaults. The Weekly Standard has obtained a timeline briefed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence detailing the heavy substantive revisions made to the CIA’s talking points, just six weeks before the 2012 presidential election, and additional information about why the changes were made and by whom.

    As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that al Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The frantic process that produced the changes to the talking points took place over a 24-hour period just one day before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her now-famous appearances on the Sunday television talk shows. The discussions involved senior officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the White House.

    The exchange of emails is laid out in a 43-page report from the chairmen of five committees in the House of Representatives. Although the investigation was conducted by Republicans, leading some reporters and commentators to dismiss it, the report quotes directly from emails between top administration and intelligence officials, and it includes footnotes indicating the times the messages were sent. In some cases, the report did not provide the names of the senders, but The Weekly Standard has confirmed the identities of the authors of two critical emails—one indicating the main reason for the changes and the other announcing that the talking points would receive their final substantive rewrite at a meeting of top administration officials on Saturday, September 15.

    The White House provided the emails to members of the House and Senate intelligence committees for a limited time and with the stipulation that the documents were available for review only and would not be turned over to the committees. The White House and committee leadership agreed to that arrangement as part of a deal that would keep Republican senators from blocking the confirmation of John Brennan, the president’s choice to run the CIA. If the House report provides an accurate and complete depiction of the emails, it is clear that senior administration officials engaged in a wholesale rewriting of intelligence assessments about Benghazi in order to mislead the public. The Weekly Standard sought comment from officials at the White House, the State Department, and the CIA, but received none by press time. Within hours of the initial attack on the U.S. facility, the State Department Operations Center sent out two alerts. The first, at 4:05 p.m. (all times are Eastern Daylight Time), indicated that the compound was under attack; the second, at 6:08 p.m., indicated that Ansar al Sharia, an al Qaeda-linked terrorist group operating in Libya, had claimed credit for the attack. According to the House report, these alerts were circulated widely inside the government, including at the highest levels. The fighting in Benghazi continued for another several hours, so top Obama administration officials were told even as the fighting was taking place that U.S. diplomats and intelligence operatives were likely being attacked by al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists. A cable sent the following day, September 12, by the CIA station chief in Libya, reported that eyewitnesses confirmed the participation of Islamic militants and made clear that U.S. facilities in Benghazi had come under terrorist attack. It was this fact, along with several others, that top Obama officials would work so hard to obscure.

    That seems unlikely since he was married at 28.

It is not like benghazi where it was in a foreign country we had little control over and no budget for. nope, 9/11 was in america and actually got by a number of military facilities. (2)So did you object to the cover up of 9/11 like you have with benghazi?
    1. Until the 911 report was published I wrote several emails to my legislators. How often? Don't remember. GW (and Clinton for that matter) WAS an idiot to ignore the intelligence but he is now NOT the president.

    2.I'm not a truther and generally agree with the 911 report. I suspect that once(if) a report on Benghazi is published I will review with an open mind and decide then. It sounds as though you have already made up your mind.

    Wondering why you have failed to respond to my question...except with questions (quite rude). Why is that?

    Not from me. I called him a coward, and to make up for it he attacked the great nation of Grenada. Sorry, but partisan politics from either conservatives or liberals who now call themselves progressives to me is mindless.

    Perhaps it takes reading the whole thread and putting 2 and 2 together about what people are saying. Moreover the ARB Review has nothing to do with Issa and the Republicans. As much as those on the left would like it to be. It is simply not the truth.


    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.....snip~

    From two pages Back. Also then there is what CJ brought up as well. Maybe you should start there. Course myself I would go back to the 10th and Obamas Speech at the Florida University. During his re-election in Sept after he was told he was trailing Romney in polls and Right after he was old AQ had released a tape for 911. I would pay strict attention to Obamas words. Mannerisms and behavior. Noting how nothing about Foreign policy was on his mind.

    Other than keeping that party going. Fundraising for what mattered the Most to him above all other things. Do you think Obama can defends his own words, actions, and mannerisms that was showing he wasn't looking like someone who was to worried about the Anniversary of 911?
