    If he corrected it, it's not a cover up. What don't you get?

    How wasn't it a deliberate cover up when the CIA, Libya, and Clinton have come and stated there was no protest. Rice made all the talk shows on a Sunday. Why do you think Republicans want her Resignation? There is no doubt Rice stated there was a protest outside the Libyan Consulate. She was flat out denying that it was a planned attack and only after the CIA and Clinton with Obama stating they now knew it was pre-planned. Did she then change her remarks.

    So some things were covered. Maybe not all of it.....but that doesn't give them the right to play it like they didn't know what was happening and going on.

    Which later Obama confirmed on 60 minutes. When he stated he thought there was something going on there.

    Either way incompetency will not be a valid excuse to chase away a failed policy.

    So, even you give an alternative possibility. And others may see a third, or a fourth, or a fifth. So, what is needed is more evidence. Speculation isn't news. And that is the point here.

    You are one of the reasons why Obama's Benghazi Massacre will not go away.
    It is a bit telling that this is the only reply to my post. Not one liberal, including the person I replied to, wanted to address the facts of the case or Obama's willingness to allow Americans to die when help was readily available, while blaming a youtube video.

    What you have to show, with evidence and not speculation, is an actual cover up.
    First of all, he DID double the deficit. Second of all, I wasn't saying that any of that had anything to do with the cover up. I'm just saying he has a poor track record.

    He only corrected it when the evidence came out in the hearing. There was evidence to support the claims that they knew 24 hours after the event happened though, so why didn't they just come out and say it? It was a cover up UNTIL the hearing when they started calling it a terrorist attack. It's like getting in trouble for something but only admitting you did it after they find proof that you did. It doesn't changed what happened or lift any fault, but it begs the question, "Why did you lie to us?"

    I'm pretty sure there is evidence. I'm pretty sure they had either a satellite feed or a drone over the area when it happened because there were reports of them "watching in real time". How could they not know?

    Just how do they get around the Commander of the 17th Btn in Libya stating he told US Diplomats 3 days ahead of the attack it was to dangerous to go in. That there had been kidnappings and assassinations of local officials. Associated press has several witnesses of when the battle took place. Before and afterwards. Libya and Worldwide media Sources have reported on the Libyans Confiscating Cell phones, Cam corders, Footage from Security Cameras from Shops.

    You do know the safehouse is not the the same building as of the CIA compound.....Right? The safehouse was compromised before the battle began.

    You may rightly criticizing him for being slow to correct. I do that. But it simply is not the scandal some are trying to make it. A coverup requires much, much more. it is like with nearly ever criticism of Obama, some feel the need to try and hype it. For the life of me I don't understand why your side has to destroy any real criticism by jumping off hyperbole mountain. It destroys your credibility when you do that, giving him a pass because few reasonable people will go with you.
