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.

"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."

MyRandomName: 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.


1. No, he referred to "acts of terror."

2. Do presidents routinely brief the UN ambassador?

Acting CIA Director Michael Morell told lawmakers in a closed-door briefing yesterday that Rice's televised account, five days after the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, was based on an early agency assessment that the episode stemmed from a spontaneous demonstration, according to the lawmakers, Representatives Adam Schiff and Charles "Dutch" Ruppersberger.

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.


Because the annex was a black ops site and you myopic mouthbreathers don't give a fark if releasing classified sensitive information might actually cost more lives.

Now stfu and let adults handle this.

When you hold Bush to the same standard that you are holding Obama to when it comes to lying, I'll start to give a shiat about how outraged you are about this.

Until then, this is nothing but a political witchhunt by a bunch of people still butthurt that Romney lost. 

Seriously, I stopping caring about what you guys think and how outraged you were a long time ago.

AdolfOliverPanties: 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.


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. Those managers write summary for higher ups. Information from report gets blended into slide decks for wider consumption.

Not a conspiracy.

Barack Obama, he is more of a knife in the back then a boot to the head kind of guy.


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 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?
