    And the CIA believed those reports, resulting in talking points that were delivered to Ambassador Susan Rice, ..."

    We are expected to believe that despite the actual report from the CIA/Benghazi which is claimed to have ID'ed a flavor of AlQaeda as the culprits right off while the media (someone somewhere) blamed or kind of hinted at the video although the CIA itself never said so but the CIA believed the media.
    The CIA has to be pretty bush league to have done that ... or pretty much in the tank.
    I'm not denying that version but it sounds more likely that it was really the WH who believed the media story because it was most serendipitous.
    Is that quote from an assessment in the Senate's conclusion or testimony from the CIA?


    edit. wrong quote.

    What's the difference? The problem isn't who did it; the problem is that security wasn't good enough in the first place.
    Exactly. The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens request beefing up security at the Benghazi consulate and Hillary Clinton ignores the request while spending hundreds of millions of dollars on remodeling embassies in Europe, purchasing green cars and building charging stations for these cars, purchasing enough booze for embassy parties than the sailors of the entire Pacific Fleet could consume on a week long shore leave. Then to say there was no money for beefing up security ??? State Department security spending comes from the same State Department maintenance funding.

    Then you have the majority of those serving in the U.S. military asking why didn't Obama issue an order to at least try to save these Americans in Benghazi during the attack ? And those Navy and Army flag officers who went on the record were purged from the military by the Obama administration.

    As for if they were protesters or terrorist with links to Al Qaedas. It defiantly made a difference to the Obama White House because Obama reelection platform for being given a second chance in 2012 was that "Al Qaeda was being decimated and was on the run" which was a complete lie.

    Because than its a random event that would have been hard to plan for, vs the culmination of months of attacks and denied pleas for help from the Presidents own representative, from his boss-the sec of state.

    That would have looked bad in the election season, wouldn't it?

    Maybe; how many times did the senior diplomat present, request that his mission be downsized due to a lack of sufficient staff?

    The longer they proclaim it a false scandal, the harder they are going to fall. These guys are content with dead Americans if it doesn't harm their politics.

    I invite both you and Hillary to keep up with the defense-because its not really a defense at all.

    Let me be the first to notify you-that defense is going to be toxic for the dems.
    The difference between life and death?

    So..... if Ambassador Stevens was killed by protesters, maybe he'd still be alive????

    What is the difference between an ambassador killed by protestors due to bad security and one killed by al Queda due to bad security?

    It would be a welcome one, id think-since the dems dont really have much else they want to bring attention to. Obama would love another trayvon martin kinda son right now.

    Lets get this straight-its the dems who exploited those dead Americans for political purposes-merely finding out the truth is not playing politics.
    Your party is going to be pulled into the sunlight, kicking and screaming and we are going to find out what happened.

    I hope this new committee irons out all the false claims from both sides. We need one unified, unvarnished, concise report...because there is a lot of BS floating around.
