My understanding from right wing blogs is that black people stick together on this stuff.

For some reason, they also think that Harvard Graduate Obama and Stanford Graduate Rice speak in Ebonics.

Regardless of politics, state department people on dangerous assignments will get the fark up in the morning and do what needs to be done, no matter how dangerous you tell them it is, on the other hand their security personnel would not let anyone leave bed without a platoon of marines if they could. Security warnings come in about once a day and basically the old pros give you about a week to stop shiatting your pants and get to work.

Romney hasn't mentioned Libya once on the campaign trail after getting his ass whipped on the topic in the second debate.

Wonder why that is.

Give what a rest, exactly? It's undeniable there were tremendous mixed messages coming from the administration over those subsequent two weeks. Susan Rice was explicitly denying it was a terrorist attack. Obama waffled between an act of terror description to a response to a video (the video part he stressed in his UN speech without even mentioning the terrorist attack, even though it was already widely known). The administration took what was a huge embarrassing flub by Romney and squandered it with poor, inexplicable communication, such that the administration's response is now all anyone talks about, having all but forgotten Romney's idiotic statement.

The other thing that bothers me is they were watching this attack unfold, had military capabilities in the region that could have stopped the attack, but did nothing. You have a consulate under attack, that is an act of war against your country. There's no excuse for not moving in and defending it. I can't fathom why we have more military protection at the embassy in France than we do in places like Libya and Egypt.

It was, as has been repeatedly and accurately reported in various legitimate news sources, and go fark yourself, because you already knew that. Which is now why they have to move on to this new "scandal."

The Embassy in Libya is in Tripoli. Bengazi was a consulate mission.

You should inform the Romney campaign of this, seems like something they would use. Wonder why they haven't.

meat0918: Wasn't Ms. Rice always somewhat sensible?


Points in favour of being sensible: Pro-choice. Erudite, clearly expresses herself well in public. Made fun of herself on 30 Rock.

Points against: Secretary of state during Iraq and Afghanistan invasions. Didn't know what the Marshall plan was. Referred to Bush as her husband. Sharp knees.

Take your pick. Honestly, I don't see a problem with her being both at once. Derp is a quantum state these days.

Fox is basically 24/7 with this still.

Just today they had noted military strategist Megan Kelly hosting an hour of quality derp with a Lars Larson who's primary qualification is that he wanted to be on TV as opposed to radio for a hour. The basic takeaway from the interview: We should have nuked Libya, Obama is a communist and Michelle Obama is stealing dresses from Ann Romney.

It was quite informative I must say.

And 1 day after the attack he said it was an act of terror, during a time when there was a large scale popular protest agaist said video in the larger muslim world.

Nah, they just added "Benghazi" to the script the Chinese sweatshop workers use when they cobble together his posts. Hey, it pays better than farming for WoW gold!

And isn't Tripoli (where the "military capabilities" were located) something like 400 miles from Benghazi? That's like saying "LA is under attack, and San Francisco just let all those people die!" Or, "Boston is under attack, and all those jerks in Baltimore did nothing to help save their lives!"

2012-10-25 06:28:08 PM  
So, the best the right can come up with is that the White House didn't know EXACTLY what happened RIGHT AWAY during a chaotic attack 10,000 miles away?

Or is it that the messaging -- terrorist/spontaneous attack -- was inconsistent?

I, for one, am shocked that we didn't know exactly what was going on right away. Surely Mitt would have presented the guilty parties at a news conference hours later complete with a 300-page binder detailing precisely what happened.
