    Faux News is the most reliable news source only for Republican/conservatives that can't handle the truth. Faux News tells them exactly what they want to hear whether it is true or not. Did you know that Faux News viewers are considered the most uninformed people in American? I wonder why that is. Open your eyes/ears.
    Beside that point, Fox showed a sound byte of Obama saying this in a speech at the UN. You can't fake a video of Obama saying it without suffering ridiculous scrutiny for falsifying that information, not to mention it would be incredibly hard to do.
    I wouldn't put it past Faux News to make stuff up, they've done it before and gotten caught at it. There was confusing information coming out. Obama wasn't quick to spew out misinformation like Romney, but he did call it an act of terror the very next morning. So Faux News is trying to build this up into some awful mishandling by Obama and it isn't gelling with the rest of us.



    This was in Egypt. An entirely different country. How could it be a distraction?
    It's not like Egypt is in another planet. And, the investigation is still sorting through the information being given. There were reports that the video had something to do with it while other reports said it didn't, it is hard to say with certainty that the film did or didn't have anything to do with it because there were protests in many different areas against the film. But right after it happened, that was some of the information that was provided, and to completely ignore it just because later it was determined that the film had nothing to do with it is disingenuous, because hindsight doesn't change the facts. The investigation is ongoing, but Faux News is trying to capitalize on sensationalism and trying to make Obama look bad just so that Romney can get the votes of whoever can be fooled into believing that this Administration failed epically.

    Interviews with Libyan witnesses and American officials provide new details on the assault on American diplomatic facilities and the initial moblike attack, set off by a video denigrating the Prophet Muhammad, that transformed into what the Obama administration now, after initial hesitation, describes as a terrorist attack.

    The most significant inconsistency between Libyan and American accounts is whether the attack that night began with a small protest over the trailer of “The Innocence of Muslims,” parts of which were broadcast on Egyptian television. American officials insist there was a protest that began peacefully, only to be hijacked by armed militants. But Libyan witnesses, including two guards at the building, say the area around the compound was quiet until the attackers arrived, firing their weapons and storming the compound from three sides, beginning at 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 11. A witness said that some of those attacking referred to the film’s insults to Islam.

    Yes, in fact I did hear this. But that doesn't excuse the president when there were 200 some prior incidents in the region throughout the year. You can bet that it was in his security briefing. So why didn't he so much as suggest more security?
    Because that is an ongoing problem in that area. Did you know that Bush had about 12 of these attacks while he was President? I don't remember FAux News or many Republicans taking such an interest in it as they have with this case.

    You must not have understood then. Did you miss the tidbit there where Romney asked for the transcript and the moderator said "Yes he did say that, and yes you are correct". Obama walked into a corner. Take off those Obama-lust glasses you have on and you might get a glimpse of reality.
    You must have watched an altered copy of the debate, because it was Obama that asked for the transcript. Romney was claiming that Obama did not call it an act of terror the very next morning after the attack, and Crowley corrected Romney and told him he did. And yes, she did say that it took 2 weeks for the information to come out and confirm that it was an act of terror. There have been conflicting stories as to whether it was planned or spontaneous. The New York Times reported that reports were showing that it was spontaneous and now they believe it was planned, so if the investigation has taken this long to try and identify the truth, what makes Faux News and Republicans think they know exactly what happened when they weren't there? It's a witch hunt, Faux News knows it, Republicans know it, but they just want to appear concerned.

    Yeah they tend to forget his First Speech at Andrews Air Force base when he gave his speech over the Bodies of Stevens and the fallen. Wherein he blamed the Video first and kept with the Story that Rice and Clinton did. Hence the timeline until he spoke in the Rose Garden.

    Notice he didn't call for the Candy to Show that video at the debate. He wanted the Rose Garden video brought up. What they should of done at the Debate was to have a big screen Right behind both of them. So that they could put up their remarks to be seen by all.

    Course I doubt you would have heard him then say.....Get the Tape Get the Tape.

    Either way this issue isn't going away and he will have use the Axe on somebody.

    Maybe and maybe not. A few diehards yelling without any evidence won't mean much. To advance, there needs to be more evidence than provided to date.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Well several Radio Stations are not going to let it go. Same with several Newspapers. Neither will the BBC and the UK news. Nor will Al-Jazerra, Press TV, nor the Asian Times. Course the Demo ranking Chair of the Senate Arms Committee Dianne Fienstein has called for Senate hearings after the Election.

    So just how does it go away when the Demos themselves are calling for Transparency?

    Doesn't matter. Voices in the wilderness. Absent evidence, it will not advance.

    It's barely been mentioned on the BBC since the event, and certainly not in the "scandalous" terms you are painting it. Nobody cares but Faux and its dupes.

    No one knows if it is a scandal yet.
    If it turns out it is a scandal then at that time we will find out what the scandal is and who is responsible.

    I think in the end we will find out there is no scandal just a tradegy.
