    That doesn't actually make any sense.

    I'm still waiting for someone... anyone... to address what I said:

    Do I have this correct?


    Am I also correct in saying that 60 Minutes hasn't found any of his other statments to them in that interview to be "inconsistant", "manufactured" or "False"?


    There are a couple of comments I'd like to add... First, I saw that interview, and I believe this guy isn't even an American citizen and if that's the case, why are people labeling this a "right wing" thing? Seems to me the guy is either lying or embellishing part or parts of his story to spice up his book for financial gain, but I'm not seeing anything to indicate any kind of political motive on his part... Is anyone else?

    Another thing I noticed and find quite interesting, is that there are as many people, if not more, attacking Fox News on this thread, as they are the network that actually ran the story in the first place, CBS... That sure says something about the left around here, and that something well, it ain't too good.

    why are you touched in the head?

    TV News Networks want you to watch them over other TV News Networks so they sensationalize the news in order to keep you watching.

    I'm not "touched in the head"; you said something about reporting on Benghazi in an attempt to "keep the American public distracted." If that was a reference to ratings, which I really don't think it is, it's a goofy way of phrasing it.

    It was both a reference to ratings and keeping the public distracted. Why address your own parties failings when you have these million dollar news networks attack the opposition with fabricated reports, slander and lies.
    The only amazing thing about Benghazi is that it doesnt happen more to foreign embassies in hostile countries and then what happened a commincation break down between branches of the government? Hardly suprising given the amount of red tape they go through and the fact it was in the heat of the election.
    Despite this the American media has somehow made this into a bipartisan battleground which they are still debating even though its been one year since it went down.

    You aren't going to get an answer because your post is right on and makes too much sense. We cannot have that in this forum of Obamabots who want to believe anything that will prop up this incompetent and ignore the facts in the case. We have a DEAD Ambassador, Americans signing Non Disclosure agreements, an Administration that is preventing access and yet Obama and his Administration are the victims here? I don't get it nor do I understand how anyone can still support this incompetent failure?

    That still doesn't make any sense -- what "party" are you talking about, and what does that have to do with the news providers?

    Fox is mentioned because the man's story that he was a witness to the attack (which was a lie) promoted the right wing narrative against President Obama. Republican Congress people are using the attack against the President:

    In an explosive report on CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday, the British supervisor of local security guards protecting the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, provided a harrowing account of the extremist attack that killed four Americans.

    [...]


    Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.) and other Republican lawmakers referred to it repeatedly during a Wednesday news conference. Graham said he would blockconfirmation of all of President Obama’s nominees, including Jeh Johnson as homeland security secretary and Janet L. Yellen as head of the Federal Reserve, until the administration allowed government witnesses to the attack to appear before Congress.

    Party as in the GOP/Democrats. Both parties use different news networks to attack the opposition even when the evidence isn't there. An example of this was Benghazi, the way Fox news over reported it and the GOP jumped all over it. You could also say networks like CNN tried to downplay too much as well so they could protect deomcratic interests as well as the Presidential campiagn. Its all partisan rubbish and the actual news is rarely reported on any of these networks.

    But ALL the networks reported extensively on Benghazi . . . what were they "distracting the American public" from?
