There's only about a hundred different factions battling for control of Libya right now. How could it possibly take them so long?

Obvious, really:
Because FEAR LEADER and his corruptocrat criminal cronies are INEPT, LYING TRAITORS to our CONSTITUTION.
And because they KNEW it would happen, and planned to USE the UNintended consequences of "Progressive" CRISIS to PUSH US farther FORWARD toward their 100-year dream of CONTROL.
"Imagine" that!


I've read this three times now and I still can't figure out what the hell he's talking about.

Can anyone here translate Derp?

Yes, to my untrained eye it appears to be Hill Derp. I wonder if the commenter is from Tennessee.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney finally telling reporters a week after the incident, "It is, I think, self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack," is too little - far too late.

Why would Obama try to deny something that was "self-evident" in the first place?

While you are completely correct about this being Hill Derp, there are several subtle markers which ties the comment to the southwest Shannenderpa Blue Ridge frothills. After careful examination, it would appear that this individual probably lives roughly 50 miles southwest of Roanoke and uses weekend civl war re-enactment as a cover to organize a militia to attack the inauguration in January.

Don't you follow the news? They repeatedly denied it. They were telling everyone that it was all just a spontaneous protest over a "disgusting and reprehensible" video. Obama tried to blame a filmmaker for those deaths rather than accept responsibility for his own failure.
 
2012-09-23 11:57:44 AM  
He should've come out as the attacks were happening and claimed terrorism instantly even with all the other protests happening across the region. Seems reasonable.

Unfortunately, he cannot always do that. FA is one of those where one must walk a thin line. Plus, our Intelligence agencies arent really that intelligent.

Interesting that in all that bluster you couldn't find a direct quote. I mean, it was supposedly all over the news right?

Additionally, you do realize that the protests and the AQ attack are two separate things, right?

Oh who am I kidding of course you don't.

Obama administration blurred that distinction. They tried to say that killings in Libya were the result of spontaneous protests against a film rather than a premeditated terrorist attack. They said, don't blame us for those deaths, blame that filmmaker.

President Barack Obama, United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney led the way by denouncing those who dared state the obvious version of what had happened in Benghazi, Libya - that it was about terrorism and not about the anti-Mohammad film.

When did this happen? Quotes?

2012-09-23 01:07:05 PM  
Saying at the time that they had no direct evidence that it was terrorism != that they did not suspect terrorism at that time.

The 9/11 protests were used as cover for the assassination plot by terrorist groups.

The questions of who precisely whipped up those mobs in all those places and how and why has not been answered to anyone's satisfaction yet but the fact remains that RW blowhards like the Koran burning Pastor and his Christian Sharia law cohorts added to the chaos and so I kindly invite Scott "the Right Politics" Paulson to print out a dozen copies of his shiatty "bad news for Obama" blogpost here, crumble those copies into a largish, ball shaped mass and then cram the entire thing up his ass as rapidly as possible.

That is all.

Oh, sure, 0bama can use his time machine to alter his birth certificate but he cannot make a simple phone call to warn the embassy? he had to have known this was going to happen, just look at the news it is everywhere.
 
2012-09-23 01:08:57 PM  
Yeah, because the smartest thing to do in response to an attack in an unstable and sensitive culture is label them terrorists.

I mean, it's not like we have proof that hatred for American and terrorist recruitment was fueled by the conception that Americans hate Muslims and view them all as terrorists. It's not like Osama bin Laden WANTED us to be at war with "Islam" rather than "Al Qaeda".

Damn you Obama for not shooting first and aiming later.

Fareed is on CNN now talking about how the musilms were bound to riot from time to time due to their own societal problems, regardless of who is President... well thanks we knew that.

Anyway - if the deaths of our people in Libya constitute a 'failure' for the Obama administration, then your standard is way too high. I'm surprised there isn't a lot more violence towards U.S. interests every day.

There could be other reasons besides domestic political consumption for either downplaying the terrorism or conflating the deaths in Libya with the more widespread protests - maybe Obama thought by blaming the deaths on the video-riots, it would shame the larger mobs into calming down.

I wouldn't trust anything said by any politician or talking head here in America. All of it is spin and half truths at best, when it's not outright propaganda. I do listen to the reports from the reporters overseas who actually travel around the middle east and talk to people on the street.

This. Did we not learn from the WMD debacle in Iraq that maybe it's better to get all the facts first than to just start spouting off and send a bunch of troops in? And there were several other protests in that part of the world like Egypt that were specifically against the video. Libya was the exception, not the norm, during the Middle East protests.

Obviously the right is frustrated by Obama's capacity to learn from his mistakes. He passed judgement too quickly early in his administration during that whole stupid Cambridge cop thing. Little farther down the line he tells a reporter that he wants to get all the facts in before saying anything. And now...he's getting all the facts in before saying anything. That's evolution--hence why the right is upset.

Obama didn't do a farking thing in Egypt, the Egyptians are doing all of this stuff on their own.

So what exactly did they want Obama to do in Egypt instead?

The exact opposite of what he did. Unless he did that, in which case they'd have wanted him to do what he really did.

Right-wing media to the rescue. I'm sure the family and friends of our fallen ambassador are deeply concerned with the political motivation behind his killing.
 
2012-09-23 01:18:23 PM  
Does calling it a terrorist attack really change the facts about the incident?

Personally, I think labeling it a terrorist attack makes Obama look better. If it were a result of a populous riot then it would invalidate assisting the Libyans in their civil war. Calling it a terrorist attack means it was a small, isolated group; possibly Kaddafi loyalists.
