    I think you're missing the point. The investigation we're discussing is the investigation into how the attack was portrayed in Washington. That will not affect the investigation of who did what in Libya.

    That it was just a "protest" that spontaneously erupted into a battle.
    That it was all caused by some Joe Schmo's video in America.

    howdy Jack, I think the investigation is to find out why someone in the administration tried to mislead the American people into believing the attack on the consulate was a result of a video instead of a well planned terrorist attack which it was. For the life of me I see no benefit in not coming right out and saying it was terrorist's who attacked the Consulate. Perhaps State could have done something prior to beef up security or stopped Stevens from going, I don't know. But a lot of that is judgement calls as is sending in the 4 man relief force.

    Finally I want to know who tried or who threaten or was using coercion to keep certain people from testifying. This is not a covert operation gone bad with non-disclosure forms cover, this seems simply an attempt to hide the fact it was a terrorist attack. I just can't understand that.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The question I want an answer to is why on earth would you give a stand down order when American citizens are being attacked? pb, do you know the answer to that?

    Because the BHO line was that the GWOT was over.

    Petraeus Says U.S. Tried to Avoid Tipping Off Terrorists After Libya Attack

    WASHINGTON David H. Petraeus, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, told lawmakers on Friday that classified intelligence reports revealed that the deadly assault on the American diplomatic mission in Libya was a terrorist attack, but that the administration refrained from saying it suspected that the perpetrators of the attack were Al Qaeda affiliates and sympathizers to avoid tipping off the groups.

    Just another reason why he was a poor Director. That was one of those times when "national security" was invoked to pursue a political objective.
