    I like how you've contorted the challenge so that it presupposes that there was wrong-doing on the part of the Obama administration, including a conspiracy to distort the perceptions of the American people to win votes.

    Over 3000 Americans died during 9/11.

    9/11 was used shamelessly to rally support for an invasion which cost over 4000 more American lives, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of civilian Iraqis.

    It also helped Bush win re-election.

    And you're making allegations about when an attack during Obama's administrated was designated as an act of terrorism?

    Stop pretending that you care about the victims of Benghazi. No one is buying it.

    There WAS wrong doing on the part of the Obama administration. Wow......

    Panetta: I Knew Right Away Benghazi Was a 'Terrorist Attack' | The Weekly Standard
    " President Obama's former defense secretary and CIA chief, Leon Panetta, told MSNBC today that he knew the Benghazi attack was a "terrorist attack" right away "

    " I didn't have any specific information, but the fact was: when you bring grenade launchers to a demonstration, there's something else going on," said Panetta. "And I just, from the very beginning, sensed that this was an attack -- this was a terrorist attack on our compound."

    Nonsense.. You people need to remind yourselves occasionally that WE ( Conservatives ) were NOT the people Gruber was referring to when he called the American voters idiots.'

    We KNEW Obama and the Democrats were lying scum long before Gruber's comments were disclosed.

    And why do you people continue to run and hide behind the false narrative of Bush's supposed " lies " about WMD ??

    Oh that's right, you WERE the people Gruber was referring to....



    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998


    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998


    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    --Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998



    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    "Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    -- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999


    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
    -- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002


    "He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do"
    -- Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    -- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

    Did I say that there was an U.S. Embassy in Benghazi ? No I did not, you are making **** up.

    Now the Obama administration referred to it an State Department consulate and most of us have known since 2009 you can't believe any thing that comes from the Obama White House or any thing that comes from any of the executive branches of government.

    What my post was referring to was that the political left starting in 2009 will report a car bombing outside the wall of an American Embassy or consulate as an attack on the later even though the perimeter wall hadn't been breached.

    Or how about this? Remember these being pushed hard before the election of 2004?




    Exploiting fear in people. **** getting Bin Laden.

    Flashback 2004: "Former US homeland security chief Tom Ridge charges in a new book that top aides to then-president George W. Bush pressured him to raise the "terror alert" level to sway the November 2004 US election."

    USA TODAY reporting:

    "The Bush administration periodically put the USA on high alert for terrorist attacks even though then-Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge argued there was only flimsy evidence to justify raising the threat level, Ridge now says.

    Ridge, who resigned Feb. 1, said Tuesday that he often disagreed with administration officials who wanted to elevate the threat level to orange, or "high" risk of terrorist attack, but was overruled."

    It's pretty ****ty to prey on people's fears to sway an election.

    Re: Republican-led report debunks Benghazi theories and accusations

    Here is what Senator Lindsey Graham has to say about this. As he was on the Senate Committee and what he and that Committee knows is a bit different since they had to file a lawsuit to get some answers. He isn't going for the Intel Community pointing the finger just at the State Dept.

    How lame.

    Hey Fenton, you finally figure out there was no Embassy or Consulate in Benghazi?

    You know whats lame ?

    Your continued defense of what are essentially pathological liars.

    Your attempt to minimize the deaths of four Americans.

    That's lame

    You're a hypocrite.

    Trying to minimize ths deaths of four Americans because your'e too dishonest to admit you were lied too.

    Did Bush attempt cover up the deaths of four Americans right before a Presidential election ?

    Did Bush leave a consulate unprotected after a attack that blew a 12 foot hole in the compound wall ?

    Hilary and Obama didn't even have a back up plan in place after EVERYONE else including the Red Cross bailed out.

    Next time take a whole 3 minutes and vet your Presidential candidate properly before condemning the rest of America to the stupidity that is your blind allegiance to a corrupt ideology.

    That means the investigations by the Republican-led House are, what, 0-for-7 in their attempts to claim that the Obama, Hillary, et al somehow caused the death of the ambassador and/or tried to cover it up.

    Which means that either the Democrats are so doggone smart and organized that even the House Intelligence Committee, with all its resources and influence, couldn't break the liberal Cosa Nostra...or there was simply nothing there to begin with.

    But obviously it's all a grand conspiracy.....
