    I'm confused. How does saying the attacks sprang out of a protest cover up failures in security? Is it somehow okay if protesters kill Americans, but not al Qaeda?

    And she didn't acknowledge that she was pretty much the first person to trot out those talking points she said were being looked into.
    Would have been a perfect opportunity to mention that, huh.
    And, btw, have they brought them to justice?
    The CIA developed the talking points CIA Strikes Back On Benghazi - The Daily Beast
    The CIA also took out the alQaida reference because that information was classified.
    No, they have not brought them to justice, that's something you can't guarentee. Bush didn't get OBL dead or alive either.
    This is all politically motivated by the Republicans.

    The CIA didn't blame the video.
    That came from somewhere else.
    Where?

    And that is why Romney got in trouble " trying to use Benghazi to score political points during the second presidential debate.
    It was not a mistake. It was an outright bald faced lie. And I do not care about Romney.

    "It’s tucked inside the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on Benghazi, which reveals a key source of the bad intelligence that made it into Ambassador Susan Rice’s famous talking points: the media incorrectly reported that before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012 there were protests outside the U.S. facilities in Benghazi when there weren’t. And the CIA believed those reports, resulting in talking points that were delivered to Ambassador Susan Rice, who told the nation on several Sunday news programs Sept. 16 that the attacks in Benghazi were “a spontaneous reaction” to protests that had occurred on the same day in Cairo against an anti-Islamic video published in the U.S." — "A Benghazi Scandal That’s Already Been Revealed: The CIA Believed A Media Mistake."

    Does it really matter if the republicans try to exploit that event for political purposes; since, it merely opens them up to criticism regarding their future, potential, political strategy to position themselves as the party of fiscal responsibility when it comes to our War on Terror.

    What are you talking about ?

    The White House didn't initiate the cover up untill after four Americans were dead.

    Right now it looks like Hillary Clinton was incompetent as Secretary of State and Barack Obama as CnC was in violation of Article 92 of the UCMJ, dereliction of duty.

    It appears that you progressives are getting very nervous about the Benghazi hearings.

    No . . . the clamor over Benghazi is the diversion.
