    That response was an ad hoc reaction by those on the scene. They were not in charge of the Consulate and had no responsibility for its security.

    If you want to compare Benghazi to Watergate, the crime must be whatever the CIA was doing in those outposts - something we still don't really know - and the various descriptions of motive efforts to hide those crimes. But that's not what you right wingers focus on. Have there been ANY hearings demanding to know what we were doing there, calling St. David to the stand, threatening him with contempt unless he explains what his guys were doing that got our ambassador killed? No. All we know is we weren't attacked over a video (supposedly), but no one seems to give a damn the real reason why. Heck, all Obama had to do, apparently, was just call this random terrorism and he'd have been fine. We're used to swallowing that BS without a second thought....

    That's why the fact the right wing ignores Petraeus is so telling. If there is a scandal, it's in what we were doing. But the guy directing what we were doing there, the DCI, doesn't get even a nod from you guys.

    Then I suggest you look it up...I lived through the time....I remember watching the hearings...Problem with people like you Jasper is that instead of looking at the corruption within this current administration, you want to pretend that they can do no wrong.

    I too would like to know what Stevens was doing there that night...And what the meeting between him and the Turk was about...Shipping arms to Syrian rebels through Turkey maybe? Trying to rake in the arms that Obama gave to AQ to overthrow Qaddafi? Either way it was a failed foreign policy of THIS administration that got Stevens killed, and instead of telling the truth about what happened during an election campaign, Obama, and his inner circle of liars, and criminally negligent boobs they wanted to promote a "normalization" in the region...It got people killed, and the didn't respond other than to look at how they could do spin control while the attack was ongoing.....Sickening....

    You accept that? It was 9/11 for God's sake....A 10 year old could have told them they better ramp up the security....

    In fact, Ty Woods' father says that Woods was told on numerous occasions to 'stand down' and NOT aid....Why, and by whom?

    They had no security responsibility and (although certain individuals had extensive training and experience) they were not a response force trained as a unit. My suspicion is that there was reluctance to go all in with such an ad hoc venture.

    Yeah...But that Woods was possibly told NOT to help, I think shows a real shift in how we watch our peoples backs in this administration.

    So again, your regurgitation of the contortions in the story that have come from the White House are your apparently wishful speculation. As well as ignoring and dismissing everything that contradicts the contortions. As regards what Rhodes in his job at the White House was directing Rice to say where is that in the email you STILL are claiming does not say what I'm referring to? You must mean aside from the subject of the email? About the PREP call made to Rice? "RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET." As you insinuated to another poster when you called him out, but before you opted not to backup your "call out" with anything, it is about credibility. At this point you have now thrice proven to me you have none. You do appear to have faith in the administration but then these repeated knee jerk dismissals of yours are pretty explanatory. You keep leaping without thinking about what I said and what is in the emails that you clearly somehow managed to either miss or just did not bother to actually read.

    Seems you and Jay Carney have something in common, neither of you can discern what the emails are about or contain in them. The poor man was besieged and then tried something really creative, he claimed these newly released WH emails...weren't even about Benghazi!



    In any case what I'd like to see has already been stated. Trying to not too creatively change what I did say to I wanted investigation of every talking point. If I did it certainly would not be by the (any) administration investigating itself.
    Were there protests in Cairo on 911?

    In Libya: Why the Benghazi Investigation Is Going Nowhere......

    Four months after a brutal assault on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi killed the ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, politicians in Washington are still railing over how diplomats were left vulnerable to attack. Yet the political furor, which now threatens to hold up President Obama’s national-security nominations, stands in stark contrast to the response in Libya itself. There, Libyans say, the investigation is nonoperational, if not effectively dead, with witnesses too fearful to talk and key police officers targeted for violent retribution. “There is no Libyan investigation. No, no, no,” says Mohamed Buisier, a political activist in Benghazi, who returned home in 2011 after decades in the U.S. “There is not even a will to investigate anything. Even for us civilians, it is very dangerous if you talk about this subject.”

    Whoever knows differently is for now not talking. And in fact, they might be dead or missing. Last week masked men surrounded the car of Benghazi’s chief of criminal investigations, Captain Abdelsalam al-Mahdawi, while he stopped at a traffic light and abducted him; he has not been seen since. His kidnapping came less than two months after Benghazi’s police chief, Faraj el-Drissi, was murdered in his Benghazi home and just weeks after armed men attempted to break into a jail in order to free the suspects in custody for el-Drissi’s murder.

    Beset by criminality and awash with weapons, Benghazi is a dangerous place, and police officers like al-Mahdawi and el-Drissi had full dockets. But both men had the attack on the U.S. compound in common. “Any person who touches this file is disappearing into thin air,” says Rami el-Obeidi, a former intelligence chief for the rebels’ National Transitional Council during the 2011 revolution, who has attempted to probe the attack on his own time but has faced the frustrations of confusing and missing evidence. “Who’s leading the investigation now? No one. What’s the progress? Nothing,” he said by phone. “Anyone who has had a hand in the investigation has been killed or abducted or threatened.”

    The stymied investigation seems a far cry from the assurances from Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, immediately after the attack, that the culprits would be caught. A somber Obama told White House reporters the morning after the attack, “Make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.”.....snip~

    Yet, 5 days later Susan Rice was calling the TNC President a Liar. Wonder what their definition of working with them.....exactly is?

    I would go directly after Obama on this......as in "yo" Mope. Whats up with this? Then do it in front of a camera and lets see if he will smile his **** eating grin then.
    Awesome post! This is what Hannity should be talking about. That's not allowed though. The devil's always in the details.

    Can't stand Hannity, so if he does talk about it I'll pass. But that sign from the 911 protest about building 7 sure is a hoot.

    Psssst, not interested in the debunked and frankly disjointed 911 troofer stuff. Reminds me of the Obama berf certificate troofer stuff.
