    It wasn't reported that they asked while the attack was still going on and even then it still doesn't explain why they were blaming the video, why, if they thought the video was a problem they didn't do something earlier or why they said the intel about the video came from the CIA when, apparently, they knew about it all along.

    Plain and simple, why didn't they tell the truth?

    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~

    I was part of the problem, it was reported Sept 12, 2012.

    Once again, if they thought it was going to be a problem then why did they wait to do something? Why did they try to contact Youtube instead of send assistance? Why do we have an email about this and none about how to get assets to the scene?

    No it proves the State dept held back on email that was not classified and did so for over a year......So I can understand why you are pist. Because it is another technicality that gets brought out to the light. While at the same time makes Team BO look even more sneaky and dishonest.

    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.


    But the Benghazi issue isn't about the attack.

    Its about a Administration that chose to lie not only to the American people but also the Families of those who lost their lives.

    Obama, Hilary and the DEMOCRATS Politicized it the instant they chose to manufacture a false narrative about a video because it was too Politically risky to be honest.

    I find your disgust with the Republicans a bit hypocritical.

    This is just a guess, but might it be when politics and elections are prioritized over everything else? Including other people's lives?
    Kinda like 'sucks to be you'? (White House speaking to the Benghazi 4)

    my disgust is with :

    using tragedies as a political tool

    fake news networks like fox and MSNBC

    hypocrisy

    hyperpartisan conspiracy theories.

    our stupid gerrymandered monochromatic political monopoly, and the proponents of political teamsports

    shall i post the list of embassy attacks that didn't receive two years of saturation coverage on fox (or partisan outrage from either side) for the third time, or are you ready to let this go and enjoy your three day weekend?

    All good points, I'll grant you that.

    My disgust is with politicians that seem to believe that they can get away with bold faced lying to the electorate, and they usually can - at least for some time - with the aide and cover up / lack of coverage of a complicit alleged 'news' media. It's like the two are in collusion to mislead, misdirect, and distract the electorate from these lies all the while directing the attention and news coverage to some stupid excessively politically correct and basically pointless and of miniscule importance, and the most disturbing is that the sheeple eat it up and don't question or think.

    If all this keeps going too much further, our Republic will indeed be a passing fad and failed experiment in self-governance. We will have lost more than we can imagine.

    we can fix things, but we'll have to work at it as a nation. while i'm fully in support of continuing and expanding humanitarian efforts, i think it's time to focus on shoring ourselves up domestically instead of global police actions.

    also, we absolutely have to look at ways to end gerrymandering. that seems to be the root cause of much of our division and general malaise.
