    Oh come on - you can read, so you deliberately left out a whole bunch of verbiage about the investigation just getting started, we don't know, this is our best information at this time, etc. If you want to emphasize "FACT!!!!" you're not even trying to be objective - just yelling louder and pretending that proves some point. I quoted the exchange - go back and reread it.

    They DID know, immediately.

    Its a sobering thought to realize that this Nation is filled with people who are more loyal to their political party than the truth.
    That's hilarious. If the WH knew, then I'm sure you can tell me now why that CIA outpost was attacked. Why was it attacked? What were the CIA doing there? How much did the attackers know about what the CIA was doing? Was the attack about that or a random terrorist attack?

    You're argument is that we have many diplomats die, so Benghazi is no big deal. That argument is stupid. Yes, "Ambassador" is spelled differently than "Diplomat." You might want to understand words before you use them. An Ambassador is a class higher in importance than the average diplomat. Only 8 US ambassadors have been killed in the line of duty in the entirety of US history, 2 of which were in plane crashes. There have been thousands of US ambassadors, many in some very dangerous places. A higher percentage of US presidents have been killed in the line of duty (4 out of 43) than US ambassadors.

    W Bush: 49
    Obama: 14 (including Benghazi)

    List of attacks on diplomatic missions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Point is these attacks are relatively common, across parties, administrations, etc.
    Oh really.


    In both cases, Susan Rice was involved more than she would like to admit.

    In the spring of 1998, Prudence Bushnell, the U.S. ambassador to Kenya, sent an emotional letter to Secretary of State Madeleine Albright begging for a more secure embassy in the face of mounting terrorist threats and a warning that she was the target of an assassination plot.

    The State Department had repeatedly denied her request, citing a lack of money. But that kind of response, she wrote Albright, was "endangering the lives of embassy personnel."

    A matter of months later, on Aug. 7, 1998, the American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya were simultaneously attacked with car bombs. In Kenya, 12 American diplomats and more than 200 Africans were killed.

    Eerie similarities between Benghazi and Nairobi are many. A review of the attacks showed the CIA repeatedly told State Department officials in Washington and in the Kenya embassy that there was an active terrorist cell in Kenya connected to Osama bin Laden, who masterminded the attack.....snip~

    Also, the total injured was 400 and change thru-out the whole ordeal. Which would lead to the Somalia and then that Major disaster.

    You saw what I responded to, right? I'll requote it since you obviously missed it:

    lets not forget this isn't the first time for the Democrats and failing to secure and even know what the hell was going with an attack on US embassies.
    It's a stupid point - there were at least 10 attacks during the W. Bush administration, several during Reagan, and Clinton. So making this kind of stuff partisan is dumb. I was merely pointing out with numbers how dumb. Don't blame me for responding to partisan nonsense.

    You are right I did miss that. Sort of like you missed my reply to you in #55. In any case, I agree that making this partisan is dumb. Seeing a lot of that in this thread, no surprise there. So since you missed it before, let me "reqoute" for you.

    Except that they did know much, that night, and certainly before sending out Rice to the Sunday shows. In fact the contents of these emails that Judicial Watch secured through FOI detail that they not only knew much, they knew the attack was not related to a video. Yet they actively coached Rice not to share what they knew. They even had a list that involved blaming the attack on the well known video, as well as playing up the President's "strengths". As comical as that sounds at this point in 2014.

    Of course.

    But in this case the "prepping" came from the most politicized branch of the government with a president fighting for his political life; in need of propping up his failed Libyan policy in a case that strongly suggests the whole thing involved illegal arms sales into Syria who was in the process of being documented in serial lying to sell a faulty product to he could get elected.

    THAT is not the place to get prepped when you presume to be a bi-partisan representing US interests to the world. Consider this; who the **** at the UN, in NATO, or any ally is going to believe this "ambassador" is anything more than a mouthpiece for the purely selfish domestic interests of Obama? This is domestic propaganda a la Nazi Germany, the USSR, or pre-invasion Iraq.

    What is hilarious from this Liberal's standpoint how the bleat of the "progressives" has never altered from day one. Instead of answering the charges, they hide behind a veiled accusation of partisan attacks. Instead of the boasted "most open and accountable administration in American history" we are offered hiding behind a veiled dismissal of "old news" as each new revelation is somehow not news because the White House has deemed it so. Jay, Bagdad Bob, Carney is the face of honesty, decrying it's old "old news" status when we learned the president when to bed and slept fine as his gun running ambassador was dying in agony. It was "old news" when we learned there were rockets just lying there for the "spontaneous" demonstrators to gather up and start using in a rapture-driven frenzy of gratitude for their "liberation" at the hands of the Americans. It was "old news" when we learned there was help that could have been dispatched because it would look bad against Obama's policy. It was "old news" when we learned the stupid video could not have been aired there; and it is "old news" now that we learn that the White House deliberately manipulated a false message to the "international community" for purely partisan purposes.

    But then, what difference, at this point, does it make?

    If it's not a series of deliberate moves to deceive the American people then the Obama administration is the most incompetent regime in the history of mankind.....no other reason can there be for such a prolonged and patently false story.

    Meanwhile, those same outraged "liberals" insist that every new sign up to Obamacare, every minor little success story be instant national headlines in every outlet and forum in the known universe.

    Sorry, I simply can no longer believe anything out of the mouths of any Democrat, Obama supporter or other socialist in America.

    Reputation is everything, a man's word is his bond, with Obama and his supporters their word is smoke and mirrors. Don't believe anything they say..

    Oh did you think I was miffed.....nah, not at all. We just want all the supporting actors to play their part.

    Nope, I was referring to someone else. The joker that was miffed about why the focus was supposedly "shifted" or shifting between the POTUS and SOS. As if those two ought not to be the "focus" of attention. Rather than say the janitor.

    What percentage of Americans are still interested in Benghazi? Not many in my opinion.
