    It did and the American people did accept it. Which is exactly why Liberals aren't so up in arms about Benghazi.

    History is something else ain't it?

    Most serving in the U.S. military seem to disagree. And those in the military who went public or said something off the record have been purged by the Obama administration.

    Yes, I have seen this before....First off there are indeed assets that could have been deployed, the excuses given as to why not are a direct revelation that our readiness has declined in Obama's term so in that aspect it lends credence that at the very least Obama has hurt our standing and readiness on the world stage...

    As for what Gate's said, I can't speak to his motivations, other than he may have some culpability in overseeing the decline.

    Heya Apache.....well, they do need to look into some of the States malfunctions when led By Team Obama.

    Benghazi: 2012 State Department Annual Security Report

    The most pressing question about the second 9/11 terrorist attack on America, this time in Benghazi, is “why did Hillary Clinton and the U.S. State Department fund & train the very same terrorists in Libya responsible for murdering Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith and SEALS: Glen Doherty & Tyrone Woods?”

    This question must be answered, along with a reason “why Hillary Clinton & the State Department denied over 100 requests for security enhancements & fortifications despite over 230 violent attacks in Libya for the year leading up to 9/11, including the attacks on Chris Stevens before the video was even posted on youtube?”



    Libya does not have a proper, uniformed military anymore, thanks to Barack Hussein Obama. Instead, the State Department paid the “Libyan Militia” to protect Ambassador Stevens, who is the representative of the United States President stationed abroad.



    The United States of America not only denied several request for additional security to protect Ambassador Stevens (eg: a Marine Security Detachment – MSD – is typically assigned to every Ambassador stationed abroad, except for Stevens), but taxpayers also paid for outsourcing to the Libyan militia, and in part, Ansar al Sharia. Special Forces were then used to train the “Libyan militia” to take-over their job of protecting Stevens.....snip~

    Re: Republicans investigating Benghazi blame White House, State Dept. for failures

    It is important to note that the State Department’s main function is to secure American Embassies and Ambassadors stationed around the world, especially in terrorist hot-spots–like Benghazi, Libya.

    Lt. Col Wood was the commander in charge of the American security teams in Libya & he testified:

    “I feel duty bound to come forward in order to inform and provide a portion of ground truth information. I feel a sense of honor for those individuals who have died in the service of their country.

    I realize much of my work in Libya was entangled in sensitive government work… The killing of a US Ambassador is a rare and extraordinary thing and requires our attention as a people.

    As a citizen I made the determination that this outweighs all other interests and will risk whatever circumstances may result from my testimony.”.....snip~

    Marching onward, the Conservative Report will also expose the details around the lack of response, but as already covered, Sean Smith sent a private message to a friend saying:

    “I hope I don’t die tonight. I caught one of the guards in charge of protecting us taking pictures of our facility.“

    What wasn’t disclosed was that the “Libyan guard” Sean referred to, was atop of a building across the street from the CIA compound, and was casing the location out, for obvious reason.

    The Libyan guard, supplemented by the State Department to protect Team Stevens, was scouting for an ambush by Ansar al Sharia, who went onto attack the facility, later that night.

    General Petraeus commented, “the guards left their posts moments before the attack began, allowing Ansar al-Sahria to just waltz right in the front door & kill Smith and Stevens.”.....snip~

    The headline is no surprise. The House Armed Services Committee issued a report today ...



    Well, except in one way.



    There was no stand down order. Repeat: There was no stand down order. Maybe that ludicrous talking point can finally be put to rest.
    Regardless of what happened with this "he said she said bull****" Obama and the rest of his bastard ass minions are responsible for this incident.

    Obama and his bitches just cant take responsibility for anything.... Obama is like a toddler that blames others for his mistakes. He's no man - he's an ideologue that seeks a goat anytime his ideologies or forced legislation blows up in his face...

    Heya Nick .....its only going to get worse for them. But then we want Elijah Cummings who Sat and Chaired and deflected and looked to turn back on to the Repubs and playing the witchcard.

    Now that all these truths are coming out Cummings has been trying to duck cameras and questioning over things he said in the hearings. Now lets see him get out there with his Big mouth flapping in the wind.


    War of words over deadly raid: Libya claims U.S. was warned THREE DAYS in advance of consulate attacks but America says assault was NOT planned

    Libyan military official claims he met with U.S. diplomats to tell them about the deteriorating security situation
    President Mohamed el-Megarif says the attacks were NOT sparked by anti-Islamic video, but by Al Qaeda-connected foreigners
    But UN ambassador Susan Rice insists assault was 'spontaneous'
    Diplomat Chris Stevens died alongside three others on Tuesday night

    The State Department appropriations for Embassy and consulate security comes out of the State Department's appropriations for Embassy and consulate construction and maintenance.

    It seems Hillary or one of her Obama minions decided that purchasing electric cars and building green recharging stations for European Embassies was a higher priority than security.

    Then you have Obama's DOD paying $24 per gallon for green fuel for fueling our ships and $28 per gallon for green JP-5 (jet fuel) instead of purchasing the normal fuels used at less than $4 per gallon.

    If I were in Congress I would be asking either the Obama administration have their priorities wrong and are completely incompetent or they have more money than they know what to do with it.

    Whats going on bud?

    Yeah, I know all about it, but in the end the blood is still on Obama's hands - that's the price one pays for wanting to "lead" a nation....

    IMO, if Obama just maned up and told the truth he would get a lot more respect than he has now for owning up to his own mistakes.

    Only cowards look for patsies, excuses and scape goats.
