You do realize that there were protests throughout the Middle East starting the day of the attack and the Egyptian embassy in Cairo was the first American source to mention the video, pushing back against the protestors claims that the US government had anything to do with the video and denouncing its content hours before the attack on either it or the consulate in Bengazi?

Drier urinals
When you flush a urinal, you're putting America one step closer to a water crisis. That's according to the Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products Other Than Automobiles (or ECPCPOTA for short), which is recommending new efficiency standards for urinals, along with faucets, showerheads, and water closets.

Unfortunately, because the Administration is not being forthcoming, we currently do not know what benefit President Obama gained by lying about the events in Benghazi.

Considering the Romney campaign tried to claim it was Obama apologizing to the protestors and refusing to denounce the attacks despite it happening before the attacks, they need to spin as hard as they can to move it up so that it was Obama apologizing to them for killing our ambassador and making up a reason to justify their attack and go arrest an innocent God-fearing Christian on some fake charge of violating parole instead of accepting that his fellow Muslims were responsible.

Philip Francis Queeg: Summoner101: I actually feel kinda bad for Petraeus. He's venerated by all politicians for what he did in the Middle East, now he's being used as a pawn in a bullshiat "investigation."

However, he probably prefers being in Washington getting grilled by a panel of hostile Senators to being home alone with his wife right now.

He was throwing out the talkingpoint that Patreaus is an empty suit general emblematic of the state of the modern American Military that has been corrupted by modern liberal ideals of padding grades and not letting anyone fail.

....serving it up on a tee.


Amazing... Not long ago, Petraeus was a hero of the right. Now, he's cannon fodder.

Might as well spread this around. Washington Post Sept 12, 2012

U.S. officials and Middle East analysts said Wednesday [the day after the attacks] that an attack that killed four Americans at a U.S. Consulate in eastern Libya may have been planned by extremists and inspired by al-Qaeda.
The attack followed a violent protest at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo over a low-budget anti-Muslim film
made in the United States, and it initially appeared that the assault on the Benghazi consulate was another spontaneous response. But senior U.S. officials and Middle East analysts raised questions Wednesday about the motivation for the Benghazi attack, noting that it involved the use of a rocket-propelled grenade and followed an al-Qaeda call to avenge the death of a senior Libyan member of the terrorist network.
Libyan officials and a witness said the attackers took advantage of a protest over the film to launch their assault.


I emboldened some of it, for the dim-witted. Funny, it seems to back up every single thing that the Obama administration said in the first place. NOBODY LIED. Shame, isn't it? After all those weeks of fury.

The confusing part for most people upon review of all the details it appears that the people who attacked didn't use a protest for cover and in fact the attack happened shortly after they arrived at the consulate. Ansar al Sharia (the group behind the attack) claimed in their announcement taking credit that they were only one of many groups there who did it because they were outraged over the video. We also have a witness who claimed they had seen protestors of the video at the scene earlier in the day.

The video did have a role in the attack, either as a legitimate gripe that motivated Ansar al Sharia to act that very day or as a scapegoat that they used to justify their actions. The idea that the video was all a conspiracy by people trying to hide the fact that any sort of serious attack took place at all is ridiculous.

Q: What do these conspiracy theories -- flat-earthers, faked moon-landings, 6,000 year-old earth, Benghazi-gate -- have in common?

A: None of them stand up to even cursory examination, but their adherents will not be swayed by any amount of information.

Obama is attempting to cover up the fact that his pet Republican Congress slashed funding for embassy security before this happened. He told them to, and they followed his orders., like the good little Obamabots they are.

What the crikey-fark are Low Flow Toilets doing on there?

I think each and every item on that list had it's own Fark thread at one point or another. Don't recall that one specifically.

I've said it before, if I had a time machine, one of the first things I'd do is compile links showing the reason every entry on the LOPCATGOPATA made the list.

Hell, I might start a Google Doc on that this weekend. I don't want to get into it on my phone.

Take the list and divide up with Farkers to find the appropriate links. I'll take 20 on the list if you are up to consolidating it.


Pro tip: Look for the FARK threads where a list entry first appears.

For example, I found the thread where you added Lindsey Graham by searching for the last few entries leading up to it: Susan Collins Lisa Murkowski Dean Heller Mark Kirk Lindsey Graham


And here's where Penquins were added. Searched for Young People whatever the hell a Justin Beiber is Small Business Owners Math CPAC Navy SEALs The Economist The Muppets Iowa Republicans Low-Flow Toilets -Chrysler

They're not all this easy to find. Limit the search to www.fark.com -- as you know, your list is notorious.

Contact me via uf if you want me to run down some more of these this weekend.

MyRandomName: So liberals in this thread are completely ignoring that the report was changed to remove mention of al Qaeda and terrorism and was merely a shell of the original report. Ignoring the fact that the cia report did nit mention a video or protest as a cause. Ignoring the fact that this was know leas that 48 hours after the attacks, 3 days before the talk show visits.

What the fark. Seriously. The administration pushed a false narrative of events. There was zero evidence that a film or protest took place. That was known that night. The administration pushed a narrative backed wIth zero evidence when the cia knew the cause. This doesn't raise any hairs for you liberals.

Seriously. Grow up.

Obama said in the debates he called it terrorism in the rose garden. He said yesterday he sent out rice with the best intelligence he had 5 days after the rose garden. Of he is telling the truth on both accounts, he sent her out with intentionally misleading accounts. He either lied at the debates or purposefully mislead America through rice.

Yet you are all such good and loyal soldiers you brush this off. He farking lied to your faces.

Good god people.


I'm still waiting to hear why I should give a fark, even if he lied and then later corrected it without prompting. Why it matters if they were murdered by random extremist scrubs or if the extremist scrubs were specific. The end result is the same: Those extremist scrubs will probably die, if they haven't already been identified and their family sent the bill for the bullet.

Do you REALLY need to know operational details regarding an attack on a CIA black site on your way to work at Taco Bell? Is it really going to change your life somehow?

Maybe, I suppose. It'll give you one more "who gives a fark" whiner complaint to your co-workers who are tired of you biatching about Obama instead of making that damn taco for the guy in the drive-through.
