    Here's a nice article taking the issue out of the political circus realm.

    A hidden cause of Benghazi tragedy | David Rohde
    I doubt All 3......Politi-fact, Fact Check. org, and Politico. Were Pretending. Which is why they said Obama was partially to blame with the funding.

    Moreover the Political Circus was removed when it was discovered that the Libyans had warned us 3 days prior to the attack. Then after the attack when the Libyan President stated it was a premeditated attack and that AQ was involved. Which Rice Denied and then later Obama denied. Now the truth has come out and it was a Premeditated attack and AQ was involved. Thus ending the Circus of that Political Motivation which was used with the Anti Muslim Video.

    No. Officials testified that it wasnt.


    In testimony Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Charlene Lamb, a deputy assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, was asked, “Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”
    Lamb responded, “No, sir.”

    And that doesnt answer issues 2 and 3, dealing with attack, and then intentionally misleading the public about it.

    I would guess they were similar to Franz Gayl, essentially ruining his career.

    The Case of Marine Corps Whistleblower Franz Gayl - Government Accountability Project

    In 2010, three years after Gayl first blew the whistle, his security clearance was revoked. Unfortunately, this is a common retaliatory practice for intelligence whistleblowers as it prevents them from completing job duties. The Corps followed this by placing him on administrative leave. GAP stood by Gayl's side as he has remained committed to his principle of protecting the lives of both American troops and foreign civilians by speaking out on the procurement failures of military bureaucracy.

    unless you are trying to tell us he is one of the benghazi whistleblowers, you have nothing

    i am on a first name basis with the office of special counsel, the agency which administers whistleblowing claims. i understand whistleblowing and its ramifications
    what i do not know is the threats the self proclaimed whistleblowers are now experiencing
    and i believe that is a salient expectation this far into a thread titled

    Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

    “I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.” …

    “It’s frightening, and they’re doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we’re going to kill you,’ or not ‘we’re going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they’re taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].” …..snip~


    Well according to this attorney.....who has held Security Clearances to be able to question those with classified information. She is stating Specifically they are being threatened with that their Careers will be over.

    Not to difficult to understand.

    Oh. I guess that's not a scandal as serious as a raid on an embassy.
    Wow, I was half joking when I predicted the left would blame Bush on this. I never though an ex-President could control the current president with such ease.
