    Nope, not this nor Cheney's lie. Many knew it then and stated it then.

    Of course you did. You decided in advance of the evidence. But how about returning to the OP topic?

    Nope, the evidence was available then.

    Oh, you mean Benghazi rather than Bush?

    According to Media Matters, if a progressive liberal democrat did something, it's good. Doesn't matter what they did, it's good. If a Republican said it, worse a conservative Republican said it, it's evil, wrong, terrible, a lie... anything but good.

    Media Matters is terribly predictable, completely insane and only trusted by the willfully ignorant.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Does anyone believe that the Whitehouse could have realistically done anything in reaction to the event that would have saved lives?

    I don't mean anything that would require a time machine. I mean anything they could have done during the event that would have saved Stevens or the others.

    Because if not, then all you've got here is politicians spinning a story in their favor, and that's just what politicians do.

    Its not just politicians spinning a story-- the man who made the video is in jail behind it-- the administration made it a point to target him.
    The president repeated the canard of the video story on the international scene (and by castigating the USA)

    Pull the other one.

    He pled out on 4 of 8 charges of probation violation, and spent less than a year in prison. He's got ~2 years of probation left today. He created a international stir with his video, and apparently broke the law in the process. That has nothing to do with Benghazi, directly.

    No doubt he was targeted, but if we wanted to hurt him we could give him to Egypt, who has sentenced him to death in absentia.

    With or without Benghazi, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was looking to start trouble with the video, and earned what he got (though the Egyptian sentence was over the top.)

    Another one of your zero value responses. Makes me glad you're a liberal.
