    Lol... call us back when you've got something you can impeach over. Telling the American people they thought the video was to blame is not: treason, bribery, high crimes or misdemeanors. Until then? Buzz off with your nonsense.

    So what do you call it when the president and those in the administration were fully aware of this, and yet keep repeating that it's the fault of an Internet video?

    So, the email. Who is addressed on this email:

    http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-cont...14.pdf#page=14

    At the time weren't David Plouffe and Dan Pfeiffer on the reelection campaign? Not the administration staff. The Hatch Act makes it a felony violation for any executive branch employee to engage in political activities while employed with the government.
    Hatch Act of 1939 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So, was this email political activity?

    The document lists as a “Goal”:

    Rhodes returns to the “Internet video” scenario later in the email, the first point in a section labeled “Top-lines”.

    So yes, it would appear that the email is in fact political activity, to politically limit any perception of a 'broader failure or policy': damage control because of the election. If not the election why bother? So I'd have to agree with Tom's assessment above.

    Of course, I don't really expect you to change your position on this, regardless of how thorough, detailed, and compelling the information and facts presented to you.

    The thing that I don't understand is that seem to accept the vile recurring behavior pattern this president and this administration have a demonstrated track record on, which is the bald faced lying when politically convenient and politically expedient. It's acceptable for the truth to be sacrificed for the politically convenient and politically expedient? I see this as a dangerous precedent to allow to be established. Why don't you?
    I said earlier today there was an investigation going on and its not necessary for the President to explain how it happened, it more important to find out who perpetrated it and bring them to justice. I don't think you or anyone else who's talking about Benghazi, gives two ****s about the four people who died in the attack. Its politics!!!

    Now, if you want to talk about presidential lying, all you need to do is to look at president Bush. Yes, I know you have those quotes from Democrats. What Bush did was to sell his war in Iraq as to make it politically hard for politicians to vote against his war. He could have used the War Powers Act to fight his war. Thousands of troops were either killed or permanently injured plus it will end costing as much as $3 trillion.

    BTW, the email you posted doesn't reference Benghazi at all.

    Clinton: With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.

    Really? On page 15:
    Q: What’s your response to the Independent story that says we have intelligence 48 hours in advance of the Benghazi attack that was ignored? What this an intelligence failure?
    http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-cont...14.pdf#page=14
    So yes, it does reference Benghazi.

    I've always stated that there are to parts to the issue, 1 was the lack of security and the deaths of 4 people. The other part of the issue was the misdirection, obfuscation of quickly debunked memes such as the Internet Video when the administration knew better, and then stonewalling of the investigation.

    If you wish to look at that one line in a vacuum, sure.

    The emails are discussing what was happening all over the middle east, some all over the world -- protests about that video.

    Do you remember what was happening that week?

    Repeat:

    Middle East - and the world.

    A big hoo-ha is being made about that line: "to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."

    What was happening THE DAY that email was sent?

    Oh, that's right -- protests about a video all over the freakin world.


    "A report (PDF) from the Congressional Research Service published days after the attacks in Benghazi details how "Muslims in a number of countries have responded in recent days with anger at the United States that many observers describe as a response to a privately produced film circulating on the Internet that denigrates Islam and the prophet Mohammed."

    According to the report, as of September 14, 2012, when Rhodes' email was sent, such protests - often violent and focused on U.S. diplomatic facilities -- had occurred in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, Yemen, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, Bangladesh, and Malaysia."
