hillbillypharmacist: They must have something really big on this guy.


I bet he was banging an intern or a biographer or something. Something huge like that.

But Petraeus told the lawmakers it was removed by other federal agencies who made changes to the CIA's draft.

Why do other agencies get to edit CIA reports? What are these agencies?
 
2012-11-16 01:56:55 PM  
Petraeus should have stopped and then said, "well, that's not true. The GOP has politicized it plenty." And then moved on without further comment.

The original CIA report still exists. It was the statement made by other agencies, based on drafts written by the CIA, that were changed.

You think it would be a good idea if all government agencies were required to read statements given to them by the CIA verbatim?

A report is not an official statement, especially when it probably contained classified.

It was just a question. I can see the White House wanting to edit the report, remove sensitive content, but if other agencies get their mitts on it first, they might remove important info.

You did say though that the CIA report still exists, which I would hope was given to the White House as well.

2012-11-16 02:59:38 PM  
Well the cover-up aspect is farked. What do we have left:

1) Obama apologized about the 1st Amendment (that one lasted 2 days)
2) Obama said it wasn't terrorism (that was never true but somehow still persists

3) Rice said it was probably related to the riots/video which was corrected a few days later
4) the GOP cutting diplomatic security budgets
5) Obama not caring about the dead diplomats
6) it is a cover-up (simultaneous to it being formally investigates somehow)


This thing has some fight in it yet. What's the fall back if this falls through. Is Mustard-gate still a thing?

I thought he was more of a "drone strike, drop a missile on your ass" type of guy. Or maybe he is a "raid your compound and bust a cap in your ass" kind of guy. Sometimes, I hear he is a "send commandos to your boat and rid you of pirates" kind of guy.

The more we talk about Benghazi the less we can focus on what's important: Justin Bieber and David Petraeus are single at the same time. Is the world ready for Bietraeus?

Sadly, we'll never know. I heard on Fox News that Petraeus resigned so that Congress couldn't make him testify about Florida Socialite, Barack H. Fartbong0.

You realize that they don't just send out one memo for everyone, right. That some people are important enough to get more detailed and classified info. It's not like you're going to tell the press officer for the ambassador to Japan's office the same briefing/memo on the attack as you'd give the President.

"There was an interagency process to draft it, not a political process," Schiff said after the hearing. "They came up with the best assessment without compromising classified information or source or methods. So changes were made to protect classified information.

"The general was adamant there was no politicization of the process, no White House interference or political agenda," Schiff said. "He completely debunked that idea."

Remember: King accidentally outed the CIA's base at the consulate (notice how the liberal media mentions that every night!).

And the best, the last time GOP went all like this over a national security issue? While "investigating" Clinton's missile strikes against Bin Laden's camps in Afghanistan, they leak to the press that we had Osama's satellite phone tapped.

Republicans have no problem outing CIA agents, letting the world know where their bases are, or that we're listening in on the phone conversations of terrorists if it means they can attack a Democratic president.

This stuff happens all the time in Fortune 500 companies. Write report for company. Is considered confidential. Report distributed to small group of managers on need-to-know basis.

What exactly is the "scandal" according to Republicans? That either we

A.) didn't send in a plane that everyone agrees would take hours to get there

-or-

B.) that there wasn't enough security there when the CIA specifically asked that we didn't have lots of security there?

Those are what the right seem to be implying, but then what reason would Obama have to lie about whether or not it was a terrorist attack if he knew from the beginning like they claimed? If everyone told him it was a terrorist attack from day 1 (which they didn't, there was lots of competing intel), he could have just ran with that and it would have probably helped his reelection. It wouldn't make any sense to do so and there is plenty of evidence that he didn't.

It's almost as if that are saying it is a scandal and politicizing the deaths of Americans without any kind of clear narrative or evidence.

SnakeLee: What exactly is the "scandal" according to Republicans? That either we

A.) didn't send in a plane that everyone agrees would take hours to get there

-or-

B.) that there wasn't enough security there when the CIA specifically asked that we didn't have lots of security there?

Those are what the right seem to be implying, but then what reason would Obama have to lie about whether or not it was a terrorist attack if he knew from the beginning like they claimed? If everyone told him it was a terrorist attack from day 1 (which they didn't, there was lots of competing intel), he could have just ran with that and it would have probably helped his reelection. It wouldn't make any sense to do so and there is plenty of evidence that he didn't.

It's almost as if that are saying it is a scandal and politicizing the deaths of Americans without any kind of clear narrative or evidence.


Let's not forgot the right was successful in spearheading budget cuts in the area of diplomatic security either. They really don't see any connection to lopping the security budget and lack of security. Which is reason number 3,588,779,678 that shows that this just another bs attempt to blame Obama for anything.

I'm gonna keep posting this til a fark independent claims it's all true...

~tinfoilhat~The best one so far that I've heard goes like this:

Obama in conjunction with the CIA and/or State Dept. and/or Pentagon was trying to stage a positive (for O) October Surprise. The idea was to get US embedded plants amongst the Arab Springers to rile up enough outrage over a comically bad US gov't made counter-propaganda film that a large but mostly non-violent spectacle of a protest would form outside the consulate. In the ensuing 'storming' of the consulate, the Ambassador et al. would be 'taken hostage' by said US friendly plants. Then conveniently, right before the election, the O man would send in the USS Drone SEAL Team Infinity Rangers Rambo part XI squad to liberate them and play that up as foreign policy kick-ass vote for me cred.

Of course this all got botched when some unexpected real terror types showed up with rocket launchers and shiat.

The evidence for this being that the CIA was holding a couple Al Qaidas already during the raid, whom would conveniently have their brains splattered during said rescue mission. Also, the evidence that after the botched 'kidnapping' went wrong, the supposedly pissed off protesters tried like hell to keep the Ambassador alive. Also, also, the Administration had the half-assed 'it was all about a shiatty movie no one has seen' story ready to go, and stupidly rolled it out even after it was obvious that real terrorists were involved.

Alternatively; the Clintons and/or CIA and/or State Dept. and/or Pentagon intentionally botched the mission to make O look bad and lose, so when Mittens took helm of the US headed for a double dip depression, Hilary would be a shoo in come 2016.

Oh, and Petraeus something something knew too much something something fell on his biographer, er, sword something something, or something.

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.

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.

DrD'isInfotainment: FTA: "He [Petreaus] thought all along that he made it clear there was terrorist involvement," King said. "That was not my recollection."

What a turd rangler.


Hey, if anyone knows about involvement with terrorists, it's Peter King (R-IRA).

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.

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

Just curious, what do you think the motive was to "lie to our faces". What political benefit exactly does Obama gain from it?

..... hold up, before you answer that, let me get the popcorn ready. This should be good.

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.

/If he does not confess, the Comfy Chair may be required.


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.

Um, list needs editing.

I've been told that it is funnier to list it that way.

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.
