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

    Coverup, and lies...

    My bet is it was all due to the election.


    There is a decent 13min vid of Schieffer with Issa and others. He even uses the "C" word... coverup... Journalism a little late... way late.

    Face the Nation transcript: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-3460_162...ruppersberger/
    Greg Hicks: I thought it was a terrorist attack from the get-go. I think everybody in the mission thought it was a terrorist attack from the beginning.

    Question: ...Did you ever have any indication that there was a protest, a popular protest, outside the mission in Benghazi?

    Greg Hicks: No question.

    Question: And if there was such a protest, would that have been reported?:

    Greg Hicks: Absolutely... for there to have been a demonstration on Chris Stevens' front door and him not to have reported it is unbelievable.

    Bob Schieffer: So Mr. Issa, why would the administration put out a storyline that was so different from what US officials in Libya knew immediately?

    Darrell Issa: Bob, that's the great question . We can't find a classified reason for it, we can't find a diplomatic reason for it. Understand that Gregory Hicks, who became the charge, became the acting Ambassador, witnessed our relationship with Libya on this show go the wrong way. Because on this show, Susan Rice says, it was a protest. Well the President, the elected President saying, no it's a terrorist attack. You can't insult a foreign leader in a greater way than happened literally here, just those few days later.

    Bob Schieffer: But do you think they were trying to cover...
    "...I've never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career, as on that day," Hicks continued in his interview with investigators. "The net impact of what has transpired is, [Rice,] the spokesperson of the most powerful country in the world, has basically said that the president of Libya is either a liar or doesn't know what he's talking about. ....My jaw hit the floor as I watched this."
    "Everybody in the mission" in Benghazi, Libya, thought the attack on a U.S. consulate there last Sept. 11 was an act of terror "from the get-go," according to excerpts of an interview investigators conducted with the No. 2 official in Libya at the time, obtained by CBS News' "Face the Nation."

    Dem Rep. on Benghazi Talking Points: 'It Was Scrubbed ... It Was False Information. There's No Excuse For That.'

    Democratic congressman Stephen Lynch said this morning on TV that Susan Rice used "scrubbed" talking points on Benghazi to deliver "false information" to the American people:

    "Absolutely, they were false, they were wrong," said Lynch, after being asked about Steve Hayes's report on "The Benghazi Talking Points."
    "There were no protests outside the Benghazi compound there. This was a deliberate and strategic attack on the consulate there," said the Democratic congressman.


    "It was false information. There's no excuse for that."

    Wait, is this what you people have been whining about all along? Whether or not it was labeled a terrorist attack?

    Coverup.
    Delays.
    Flat-out Lies.
    Threats.
    Taking the death of 4 Americans and lying for political purposes.

    And as Schieffer asked... "why were the talking points changed?" Election2012.

    My question is why did the supposed press have to be dragged into this kicking and screaming? Election2012.

    Wasn't it evil FOX NEWS that broke and pursued this story when the remainder of the press were on the sidelines picking away at their nostrils?

    And another aspect:
    Darrell Issa: And ambassadors know that the one thing you don't do is contradict your host, especially at a time when you need their cooperation. This was a fatal error to our relationship at least for a period of time and we can't find the purpose. Secretary Clinton should have been above all else, the person who was on the same sheet of music with the Libyan government and she wasn't.

    Bob Schieffer: Well, Mr. Hicks' had also testified that he had called Beth Jones, the Acting Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs at the state department, the morning after these Sunday shows and he asked her,

    Gregory Hicks: Why did Ambassador Rice say that?

    And Beth Jones told him, "I don't know." So Mr. Hicks is saying that a key State Department official said she didn't know why the Ambassador has indicated the attacks were spontaneous.

    Darrell Issa: Not only that, he indicated in his testimony that these were unwelcome. That he felt very much like Beth Jones didn't want to hear from him, and in the days and weeks to come, that continued. One of the amazing things is, here you have the person on the ground who probably, of anyone in Tripoli knows more about what was going on, he's never seen the classified ARB report. They have not let him see it. So when he says that that is a flawed report, he says so with the same information we have publicly--

    The mainstream media blackout on this story will proceed in an inverse relationship to the amount of damaging information that comes out.

    At the conclusion, when the most damning information of all is released, the MSM story will be that this has all been hashed over in the past and it's an annoyance to cover it again.

    The White House cover up was all about getting Obama reelected, it's a no brainer.

    What the hearings that will be taking place this Wednesday in Congress on why the military wasn't allowed to respond on 9-11-12 are probably going to reveal that "Commander and Chief" Barack Obama is guilty of Article 92 of the UCMJ, "Dereliction of Duty."

    Just because one person posts 50 threads on the subject doesn't mean there is lots of people caring about it. Yes, you yell loud, but that does not mean there is a huge uproar about this. That really makes you more like the small child having a meltdown in a store. Yes, it is loud and everyone around hears it, but most are really around waiting for the child's parents to lose it and beat the crap out of their brat, and making comments about how stupid the child is.

    Oh wait, I think I heard someone in Utah said benghazi you better post another thread.

    Please consider this and answer honestly, would you be as unconcerned if George Bush was president when this happened?

    Nah that wasn't Utah.....that was California and it was Jack Nicholson. Then he said something about people not being able to handle the Truth, or something like that.
