randomjsa: Oh so now NPR is getting around to talking about the Benghazi thing. How nice. How unsurprising they are playing CYA for Obama as usual too.

What we already know about Benghazi is absolutely damning to this administration and that is why they are stonewalling it.


Oh, please. You know absolutely dick about what happened outside of what the creepy underbelly of motherfarking freeeperland tells you. You make up the most insane bullshiat to match the reality you've created on your fevered little brain.

It would be really farking nice if you and the sorry sacks of shiat just like you would quit farking the corpses of honorable and dead Americans and get back to riding your chickens.

You're an insult to their memory. Go stew with the 911 truthers and imagine the next great conspiracy wherein the government kills off another pile of your countrymen for some political gain and advancement of the illuminati.

HeartBurnKid: OgreMagi: Somebody farked up. What happened was no surprise. The ambassord and the security people had asked for additional security over a month before the attack. They predicted that kind of attack. So failure #1, before it happened. Who ultimately refused the needed security?

During the SEVEN HOUR attack, help was refused, help that was only two hours away. That's failure #2. Who refused the help during the attack?

After the attack, Obama and his people repeated the lie that the attack was a spontaneous demonstrationg over a bad movie that no one saw. They knew this was not true yet they repeated that lie for weeks. That's failure #3 and that is directly Obama's fault.

People pretending that Benghazi is a nonissue are capable of allowing Obama to make any farking mistake in the world. I find that not only pathetic, but rather frightening.

Stop watching Fox News.

What lies? They made a mistake about the motivation, and then came out and admitted that mistake. I've yet to hear a former member of the Bush administration admit their intelligence on Iraq was all BS. The Obama administration is already a million miles ahead in accountability and transparency. Fox and the right wing are trying to make something out of this because there is an election. If there had been a republican in the white house when it happened, you wouldn't be hearing a peep from them.

Zapruder: Agneska: Why was the Obama admin trying to bamboozle Americans by saying that the attack was related to the video? Obama lied, Americans died.

The right way for him to word it would've been "The video sparked a riot, and that riot led to confusion and a smoke screen that the attackers saw as an opportunity. Then they struck."

Unfortunately, he didn't build that speech.


Yes, that would have been a better speech. Straight talk. But that is not the type of man he is. He likes to avoid any issues that may in the slightest have negative consequences FOR HIM. Once again, he voted present and people got hurt.

I posted this in an earlier thread:

Let's look at major terror attacks under the past several administrations, shall we? Negating Iraq/Afghanistan which are war zones.

Reagan Years:
1983:
Lebanon: U.S. embassy is destroyed in suicide car-bomb attack; 63 dead, including 17 Americans. Same year and place, suicide bombers exploded truck near U.S. military barracks at Beirut airport, killing 241 marines.
Kuwait: shiate truck bombers attacked the U.S. embassy and other targets, killing 5 and injuring 80.

1985:
Rome: airports in Rome and Vienna were bombed, killing 20 people, 5 of whom were Americans. Bombing linked to Libya.

1986:
Greece: A bomb exploded aboard TWA flight 840 en route from Rome to Athens, killing 4 Americans and injuring 9.
Germany: Libyans bombed a disco frequented by U.S. servicemen, killing 2 and injuring hundreds.

1988:
Scotland: N.Y.-bound Pan-Am Boeing 747 exploded in flight from a terrorist bomb and crashed into Scottish village, killing all 259 aboard and 11 on the ground. Passengers included 35 Syracuse University students and many U.S. military personnel.

Reagan death toll: Quite a few deaths but no major attacks.

George HW Bush:

Well...pretty much zero. None cited that I saw. Good job!

Bush Sr. Death toll: Excellent, no major terror attacks.

Clinton:
1993:
New York: bomb exploded in basement garage of World Trade Center, killing 6 and injuring at least 1,040 others.

1995
Oklahoma City: car bomb exploded outside federal office building, collapsing wall and floors. 168 people were killed, including 19 children and 1 person who died in rescue effort.
Saudi Arabia: car bomb exploded at U.S. military headquarters, killing 5 U.S. military servicemen.

1996
Saudi Arabia: truck bomb exploded outside Khobar Towers military complex, killing 19 American servicemen and injuring hundreds of others.

1998
Kenya and Tanzania: truck bombs exploded almost simultaneously near 2 U.S. embassies, killing 224 (213 in Kenya and 11 in Tanzania) and injuring about 4,500.

2000
Yemen: U.S. Navy destroyer USS Cole heavily damaged when a small boat loaded with explosives blew up alongside it. 17 sailors killed.

Death toll: Plenty (most so far...but wait!)

Bush Jr:
2001
9/11: 2992 people killed

2002
Pakistan: bomb explodes outside American consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, killing 12.

2003
Saudi Arabia: suicide bombers kill 34, including 8 Americans, at housing compounds for Westerners.

2004
Saudi Arabia: terrorists storm the U.S. consulate, killing 5 consulate employees. 4 terrorists were killed by Saudi security.

2005
Jordan: suicide bombers hit 3 American hotels, Radisson, Grand Hyatt, and Days Inn, in Amman, Jordan, killing 57.

2008
Yemen: a car bomb and a rocket strike the U.S. embassy in Yemen as staff arrived to work, killing 16 people, including 4 civilians.
India: Mumbai attacks. 300 people are wounded and nearly 190 people die, including at least 5 Americans.

Bush death toll: Congrats, you win the death toll prize! Maybe next time you won't sit on intel from the previous president.

Obama:
2009-2011: A bunch of failed terror plots.

2012
Benghazi, Libya: OMG 4 people die!

Obama death toll: basically 4 farking people.

Oh and he farking got Bin Laden. So STFU about Benghazi you asshats.
