Re: Democrats Back Away from Obama on Benghazi
Well when the Leader of Ansar al Sharia sat around in a 4 star hotel saying he wasn't going anywhere. But that the FBI couldn't get to him because it was to dangerous for them to go at that time. Why didn't they go like Stevens did. Any reason he still hasn't been brought in for questioning. Oh and when he is sitting there mocking the TNC and talking about who really runs Libya. Pretty much puts that Exclamation Point in that part about the Berbers and that very real perspective. Although I do find it amusing that you would think the MB ever had any control in Libya before Gadhafi was killed.....although I can understand you not knowing to much about the Berbers.

As clearly you would have us believe that they Made the Libyan President say these things. Just to get back Obama.
Course you asking the question but why? Why? Why did Team Obama let Ambassador Stevens go to Benghazi. Speaks volumes doesn't it.....
The State Department has said that it never believed the September 11th attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was the result of a protest over an anti-Islam movie - directly contracting the rest of the Obama administration.
By trying to distance her department from the inept and deceptive handling of the Benghazi attack, which left U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American officials dead, Hillary Clinton could help herself politically for a 2016 presidential run.
A dramatic new account by the State Department reveals that Stevens was locked inside a 'safe room' choking to death from diesel-heavy smoke as the building around him burned to the ground.
Alongside him was a security guard, tasked with the impossible choice between staying in the deadly room - or facing the rocket-propelled grenades and machine-guns outside.
Eventually the guard slipped through the window - and was cut down by the grenades.
No-one saw the ambassador alive again - another agent tried desperately to enter the safe-room, but could not find him anywhere.
Meanwhile, the ambassador was locked in a safe-room as the compound filled with flames.
When the decision was made to escape the diesel-heavy smoke, it was too late, and Stevens never made it out.September 11, 2012, started out as a regular day in the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
The site is the size of a football field surrounded by a nine-foot wall topped by barbed wire and other security upgrades.
The alarm was sounded and one agent, armed with a sidearm and an M4 submachine gun, led Stevens and computer specialist Sean Smith to a safe room inside one of the compound's two main residences.
The room is equipped with a heavy metal grill and several locks, as well as windows that can be opened only from the inside.
The other security officials armed themselves with long guns, body armor, helmets and ammunition at other buildings.
Stevens and Smith did not come out, so the third agent, suffering severely from smoke inhalation, went in and out of the building several times to look for them.
He then climbed to the roof and collapsed, but not before radioing the other agents to alert them.
The other four agents were able to reunite and take an armored vehicle to Stevens' building.
They reached the agent on the roof and tried to set up a perimeter. Taking turns enter the building, the agents scoured the premises on their hands and knees for the missing Americans.
Smith was eventually pulled out dead. Stevens was not found'
At around 4am, the compound's building was hit by mortar fire which killed agents Doherty and Woods. One agent who was involved in the attack from the beginning was severely wounded.
The men then decided to evacuate the city entirely. The following several hours were spent securing the annex and moving a large convoy of vehicles to the airport before they were evacuated on two flights.
Stevens was not seen by the security team again until his body was delivered to the airport, officials said, and they still do know how he reached the Libyan hospital where attempts were made to treat him for smoke inhalation.
Officials said that they were informed that Stevens was at the hospital only after doctors found his cell phone and began calling the most recently dialled numbers.....snip~

What witnesses were those that were saying Stevens was killed by a Mortar Round? Seems once again......you just can't seem to follow the timeline. Well I can give you an E for Effort. But that's not really a passing grade.
When you can snatch the Pebble from my hand.....ONLY then, will you have learned!
