Now now subby, no need to distort things with reality.

Could have linked to a real news source, subby / modmins. Saw this on BBC and NBC.

Short story: since a random muslim group claimed responsibility we should immediately believe them because Muslims never lie and then invaded Iran or something.

Don't you racists know they attacked us because we abused our 1st Amendment freedoms and blasphemed Mohammed!?!
 
2012-10-24 10:29:31 AM  
We should have dropped some bombs or some shiat. Or, if we dropped some bombs, we should have waited until all the facts were in. President does not look white presidential.

/DERP!!

1. Email arrives, claiming to be from Muslim group, claiming responsibility
2. Bomb farking everything, burn it to the farking ground, kill hundreds of thousands in the name of freedom
3. Profit
4. Fact check

24 hours later Obama tells Steve Kroft that this was not a random attack on 60 Minutes. I know, because I was watching and thought he might actually be jumping the gun.

So I'm not really seeing the problem.

Why would anyone attack 60 minutes?

/I'm hilarious avoiding work.
 
2012-10-24 10:31:45 AM  
Again, this email made no mention of a YouTube video or a spontaneous demonstration in Benghazi.

Yes, this was different data. Was there a point to repeating that three times in the article?

You'd think that the author would explain at some point whatever the fook he thinks this means.

Apparently, he's very concerned about something.

This is a manufactured problem to make Fartbama look bad and let the derpers rage.

Anyone can claim responsibility for anything. It doesn't mean a goddamn thing.

You nitwit, no group has ever claimed responsibility for an attack in order to boost their prestige!

You mean that the homeless guy who claims to be responsible for the high-profile murder may not, in fact, be guilty? Further investigation may be warranted? GTFO.

I don't see any problems with the handling of the situation either, but that won't matter one iota to the yell radio derp-nation.

If the American public had known earlier, we would have been able to do something. Instead we were left in the dark to do other things.

fake outrage from pundits turned into real outrage by derpers on this issue. Well played republicans, you've managed to make a mountain out of this mole hill.
 
2012-10-24 10:39:26 AM  
I've never seen so much misappropriated outrage, even in the age of the tea party.

If you do not think that this is being inflated as a shallow and obvious ploy to try to score points against Obama for the election, you're a fool.

JusticeandIndependence: Yes and a good leader takes in all information before rushing to judgement. So this changes anything how?


1) It proves that Hillary fell on her sword for no reason except to protect Obama.

2) It backs the assertions that Obama chose to pretend that we (America) were somehow responsible for bringing this attack on, when in reality he knew all along that it was terrorists.

3) It backs the assertions that Obama takes sides against the US, even when presented with evidence saying we're in the right.

A group claimed responsibility. Why, exactly, would it have been a good idea for Obama to give credit to that group, especially without any evidence that they did it? Wouldn't that basically be just giving them attention? A recruiting tool?

Why does no conservative understand that foreign policy, diplomacy, and tactics are best played close to the vest? What farking action did they think we should take? How is this a "revelation?"

So basically, what you're saying is:

1. I can't read, and refuse to learn how.

2. Obama did it.

3. I refuse to consider otherwise.

Well, this isn't optimal.
 
2012-10-24 10:50:16 AM  
So conservatives are saying that Obama should immediately believe unvetted emails sent over the internet? I can see why they think that way, considering the garbage they push around amongst themselves.

I know right. If I had known sooner that there were threats on the consulate in Benghazi, I would have book a flight and provided security myself. The process of security building in fragile foreign nations with nascent democracies and an underground insurgency is all spelled out in the July 2012 issue of ITG magazine.
 
2012-10-24 10:54:26 AM  
If it reflects negatively on Obama, it's perfectly OK to take terrorists at their word. They speak God's honest truth.

No, but they do conduct interviews in advance of AIRING them.
