    Obama lied to the American People when he blamed a youtube video

    Liberals don't have a problem with that

    The Obama Administration spent 70K running ads in pakistan blaming the youtube video

    Liberals don't have a problem with that

    The guy (scapegoat) who made the 10 min youtube video is still rotting in jail

    Liberals don't have a problem with that

    Anyone who has tried to reveal the truth has been harassed and intimidated by the Obama Administration

    Liberals don't have a problem with that

    A stand down order was given twice when American lives were in danger

    Liberals don't have a problem with that

    I could go on and on but why bother. Clearly the Left cares more about Obama than murdered Americans and the truth.
    Those talking points were approved by the CIA.

    Both Pickering and Mullens told WH Staff they would testify. People in the WH. Not Issa who had not put out any paperwork or even letters to Mullens and Pickering. As he was dealing with the Whistleblowers that had come forward.

    Think about it.....why would Mullens and Pickering Need to testify, if No one else comes out and gives testimony? Then Issa might have sent word. Issa never even mentioned them until others came out and gave sworn testimony. Did you forget Issa talking about General Dempsey and General Ham? Recall his remarks about Panetta? We know he mention Clinton being called due to what Mullens and Pickering found with the Managerial Failures. Buy Stopping the Buck before it reached Clinton.

    Now with Nordstrom and others saying that they thought the ARB should have interviewed other people who they believe have direct knowledge of some events. Issa Moved forward.

    Course while Pickering was on the Sunday shows. So was Rogers from his Committee. Which now he validates that another Whistle-blower approached his Committee. Which I am betting whoever it is. Is someone that the ARB did not see. Then we will find out if who and what spot they held, and if Mullen's and Pickering should have seen them or not.

    Also in October we reported the connection between Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who died in the attack, and a reported September shipment of SA-7 surface-to-air anti-craft missiles (i.e. MANPADS) and rocket-propelled grenades from Benghazi to Syria through southern Turkey
    .

    That 400-ton shipment — "the largest consignment of weapons" yet for Syrian rebels — was organized by Abdelhakim Belhadj, who was the newly-appointed head of the Tripoli Military Council.

    In March 2011 Stevens, the official U.S. liaison to the al-Qaeda-linked Libyan rebels, worked directly with Belhadj while he headed the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group
    .

    Stevens' last meeting on Sept. 11 was with Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin, and a source told Fox News that Stevens was in Benghazi "to negotiate a weapons transfer in an effort to get SA-7 missiles out of the hands of Libya-based extremists."

    Syrian rebels subsequently began shooting down Syrian helicopters and fighter jets with SA-7s akin to those in Qaddafi's looted stock. (The interim Libyan government also sent money and fighters to Syria.)

    Really? I thought everyone listened to CNN/MSNBC. In fact I think they say everyone listens to them all the time. I don't understand why these
    people who want to talk - can't talk on TV? I'm waiting to hear? I'm guessing there is at least one host on one of these networks that would gladly
    ask them the simple question - who decided to use the video - and the simple follow up question - why?

    Re: Issa's Benghazi narrative falling apart

    This is the common answer. The "CIA" did it. The "State Department" did it, the "White House" did it, the "FBI" did it.
    I'm not asking for an organization; lets find the name of the person who decided to lie to the American people about why
    the men in Libya died and what was their motivation for saying what they did? The president of the united states knows
    the answer, we all know he is aware of this persons name and intent. His unwillingness to be transparent is sickening.

    Nice Lie, I mean nice try.

    " In testimony Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Charlene Lamb, a deputy assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, was asked, “Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”

    Lamb responded, “No, sir.”

    Recall that Lamb is the person who denied requests from the top diplomatic security officer in Libya to retain a 16-man team of military personnel who had been protecting diplomats."

    Try another false narrative no one will believe next time.

    Like I said, talking at the hearings is what matters. Why were they not asked?
