    re: Top CIA officer in Benghazi delayed response to terrorist attack [W:222]

    I watched the Benghazi Special on Fox last night. The account of the three CIA contractors was very compelling. They had an aerial view of the compound laid out on the table and as they told their account of the evening where they were and what they were experiencing, you got a better understanding of who was where and what exactly happened. Before the special even aired, even viewed, Media Matters had a hit piece out on it. The men discuss hearing the pleas for help coming from the embassy wanting to respond and given orders not to go and all three agree that if they hadn't been delayed, Stevens and Smith would be alive today. Another significant thing that came out of the interview is none of these three men working for the CIA were made known of some video. If anyone would know about a video causing havoc, it would be the CIA. Finally, that stinking lie is forever put to bed.

    Part II and III will be aired over the weekend. I highly recommend watching it or at least recording it.

    Part II: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 AT 5 P.M. & 9 P.M. ET
    Part III: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 AT 8 P.M. & 11 P.M. ET

    Why would three random security operatives be aware of a video being used as a justification for an attack that hadn't happened yet?

    Hillary nor Obama did anyting of the kind: you're trying to prosecute a rock who will not respond.
    Actually Nixon tried to cover up a crime committed on his behalf. Regardless, the fact that the Administration lied to the public about a major terrorist attack on the United States in order to influence a domestic election is hardly a non-issue. Had Bush pulled a stunt like that, Democrats would be pushing for impeachment, and possibly rightly so.

    Three CIA operatives on the ground would have some of the most accurate pictures of the tactical level fight - it's why it's called "Ground Truth". Including whether or not it was a planned attack or a bunch of hooplah over a youtube video. That is why, for example, the Embassy in Cairo knew that the video was behind the protest it was seeing, and why the Embassy in Tripoli knew it had nothing to do with events in Libya.

    Stevens works for the State Dept. Someone else is top CIA guy.

    I found these to be incredible men and if the rest of the US Military is anything like them, and with no further social experiments, the American people can rest secure that they have the best protection available anywhere. But we can also see how the fate of these men, and admirable people like them, can be determined by the lowest form of political maneuvering.

    Well, one who was there turned out to be a fallacious liar and got a very good 60 Minutes journalist fired. Secondly, of those who were there, credible journalism and government investigations found that there was no vast conspiracy to lie and hide any truth whatsoever. It is only the goofy right-wing and Fox Nes that are pushing some sort of meme designed to break Hillary Clinton and the Democrats for this upcoming House elections and 2016.

    It's all BS dude. Nobody with any common snese believes you.

    Uh, no, Nixon was invloved in the conspiracy to commit the crime: Daniel Elsbergs "Pentagon Papers" were the target and Nixon feared what they would have revealed about him. Then Nixon conspired to obstruct investigations. The ad hoc attack on the Benghazi embassy, was not a major attack on the United States; your hyperbole is very amusing and a very large reason that your version of it has no credibility in the world. And Bush did pull a stunt like that!! he and his thugs lied their asses off and got nearly 6,000 Americans killed for nothing and opened up the door for ISIS.

    I think peraps you should revisit your position.

    What did they cover up? A talking point? ROTFL

    I mean it's not like anyone tried to break into a private office to steal political oppenents private information.... or covertly sold arms to Iran during an embargo in exchange for drug money or anything.
