This issue is a administration that manufactured a false narrative about a attack that cost four Americans their lives.
A administration those chose to lie not only to the American people, but to the families of those who lost their lives.
Why does that not bother you ?
Hillary Clinton was putting out a press release before the attack was even over blaming it on a video.
The Obama administrations priority was to perpetuate the narrative of having Al Qaeda on the run.
So a military engagement at a Embassy couldn't happen right before election.
That cost four Americans their lives.
yes, i care that people died. this is why i would pull all of our troops out of that entire region, and i would close all of the embassies there. it's a hostile part of the world, and our own house is falling apart. get them the **** out of there.
fox did not spend two years worth of news cycles on any of these :
this is absolutely political. the right thinks they have some kind of gotcha just like the dems do every time there's a shooting. it's annoying at best and disgusting at worst.January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.
June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al-Qaida attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.
October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of “Bali Bombings.” No fatalities.
February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.
May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al-Qaida terrorists storm the diplomatic compound killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.

December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al-Qaida terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.
March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers. (I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name “David Foy.” This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what’s considered American soil.)
September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting “Allahu akbar” storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.

July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.
September 17, 2008. Sana’a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.
13 Benghazis That Occurred on Bush's Watch Without a Peep from Fox News | Bob Cesca
here's my advice : give up on this one. it isn't watergate, and you're being fed a line of bull**** by a fake news network that is designed to feed you propaganda. the rest of the country is not going to support kicking the president out of office over this any more than it will support putting Bush on trial.
here's what you need to do : run a candidate in 2016 who isn't a bat**** loony far right moron. choose one who is better than the democrat, run him or her, and actually try to sell your ideas to the American people. as it stands, your side has gone absolutely insane during the Obama years, and EVERYTHING you've done has been a shot fired in some hyperpartisan war with him. ****, i thought the dems were bad under Bush, but this **** is absolutely insane. the only thing you guys haven't done that they did is to make some ****ty snuff film about him. you don't like the president. fine; i'm not a huge fan either. by the time Bush was out, i was so sick of him that anything else looked good. however, i didn't go online trumpeting every embassy attack that happened on his watch, because that would have been stupid. instead, i talked about his policies, what i didn't like about them, and solutions that i support. you know, like debating.
you guys really are Benghazi truthers. you need to know that a lot of us look at you that way, and feel that this **** should be in CT. correct course, and make your platform look better than the other side. that's how you win; not this bull****.
Whats wrong with holding a administration accountable for perpetuating a false narrative over a attack that cost 4 Americans their lives ?
Whats wrong with confronting a huge lie ?
If Obama was so concerned about guarding his " Al Qaeda is on the Run " re-election narrative that he would lie to the American people AND to the Family members who lost their loved ones, what makes you think he wouldn't purposely hold back Military assistance ?
To keep Benghazi from turning into a battle between the Terorist and American special forces.
Mornin' USC. Even Better was the Cleric in Cairo Egypt.....never saw the video. Yet he called for the Rioting in Egypt and then used Social media to spread the word to all the Sunni.
Which he was never brought in for inciting riots or anything. Not even for using the social media to spread the protests.
many embassy attacks have occurred during the past few decades :
Attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
fox has devoted two years of saturation coverage to only one of them. this is because they are using it as a political tool. your side is coming off as conspiracy theorists to those of us who don't watch fox, and it will not help you win an election. i assume it has become more about Hillary Clinton than Obama now, as fox's new mission is probably to sink her candidacy. i really don't care. however, your use of an embassy tragedy will not win you my vote. if you'd like to win my vote, push an end to interventionism and the closing of embassies in hostile regions. also, i'd like to see our infrastructure rebuilt and expanded, and we should be getting off of oil so that we would have to give many fewer ****s about that part of the world. run a candidate who supports that, and i'll consider him or her for a vote. run eight million swiftboat commercials about Benghazi, and i'm not going to come anywhere near your candidate.
on a related note, the strategy of conspiracy theorists is to tie up their opponents in increasing intricacies to mask the fact that the theory itself is usually bull****. they can't prove that Bush shot missiles at the twin towers, so they spend eons debating about one structural point in the tower, or about WTC7. then you post a pic of WTC7 which shows the damage that led to the collapse, and they just ignore it and move on to something else. that's what you guys do with Benghazi. i usually avoid CT threads like the plague, but apparently fox must have returned to saturation coverage because there have been a ****load of threads recently. i just couldn't take it anymore. mea culpa.
"While the information I have cited from this e-mail is clearly unclassified, the State Department has attempted to obstruct its disclosure by not providing Congress with an unclassified copy of this document," Issa said.
Another State Department document, this one labeled "sensitive but unclassified" and dated Sept. 12, also refers both to the video and to a group linked to al Qaeda in explaining the cause of the attack.
"At least 20 armed extremists, members of Ansar al-Sharia, set fire to the Principal's office, allegedly retaliating for videos posted on the internet of a film deemed insulting to Islam," the memo reads, providing an early State Department summary of what happened.....snip~
