clambam: The Benghazi attack took place on September 11th. There was obviously a meeting at Fox where they said "It happened on September 11th! That is so symbolic! This is our best chance! Run with it!"

And they have. The best outcome at this point would be for Rep. King to blurt out some secret to Fox News, Fox News to run with it, and King and Roger Ailes both to be arrested for treason.


I wonder if they'll start calling Benghazi "the 9/11 attack". I thought of it, so you can be sure some hack over at Fox News has thought of it, too.

Just a reminder, G. Gordon Libby actually had a show on Fox. Yes, one of the perpetrators of Watergate was rewarded by Fox News with his very own radio program.

DamnYankees: I'm just gonna keep asking this until someone gives me an actual answer - can someone please give me an actual summary of what the accusation is? Like, what's the claim here? What is the X in the sentence "If X is true, then this is a huge scandal and Obama should be impeached".

I'm not asking if its true or false. I'm just trying to figure out what the hell the accusation is.


X = Obama purposely lied about the reasons for the attack on Beghazi because he wanted to cover up the real reason as part of his nefarious agenda to something something.

"The press has been largely negligent in..."

ARE YOU FARKING KIDDING ME?

They have been blathering on about this nonstop. Although there were close to FORTY killed at embassies under Bush, and something like 100 under Clinton, these FOUR apparently trump them all. The press has been flogging this dead horse and farking this chicken so hard and so frequently that I keep expecting PETA to protest every single news agency in the planet. Hell, even Praeteus' testimony didn't give you any evidence, but you are acting like the attacks happened because Obama needed a security detail to watch the door while he molested children and allowed the Gays to run amok at the local Children's Hospital Burn Wing.

I've got news for you, Bill. The definition of "negligent" isn't "Doesn't side with Fox News 100%".

Farking moron. God, someone needs to shut this asshat up. It's people like him who have led the Right to believe that reality is only reality when they agree, fact checking is a "liberal plot", and polls are "skewed" any time they don't show the DESIRED results.

RedT: Can someone please explain to me like I am a 6th Grader what the big controversy is that, assuming it is true*, the government knew but didn't tell everyone this was a terrorist attack for two weeks or a week or whatever the time period was?


Some Republicans believe that the Obama administration was trying to cover up the fact that there was a terrorist attack on our Libyan consulate on 9/11/12, because it would mean that Romney would really have something to lord over Obama during the election and debates.

No, seriously, lots of people would have said, "Well...Obama did kill bin Laden, but...four people died from a terrorist attack on Obama's watch so...I just don't know if I can trust Obama to protect us from terrorists anymore. I think I'll vote for Romney."

This is what they're clinging to, like a four-year-old kid clinging onto a security blanket that should have been put in the trash two years ago.

There is also the allegation that the administration denied the requests from the consulate for military support during the attack that lasted several hours.

FOX has a lot of gall implying it had an active criminal part in the break in at a US Embassy and subsequent crimes while being paid by a partisan Republican cabal. Maybe they've just hired Erlichmann or Haldemann or Colsonmann as news interpreters and are going all nostalgia.

Holocaust Agnostic: Snark Shark II: FriarReb98: This is today's reason I want an amendment banning the media from using "-gate" to describe every last goddamned thing that happens to a politician.

I can get behind this.

CSB: when I was a wee lad just starting to listen to the news this was such a thing that I assumed that -gate was just a suffix meaning "scandal about" and hearing watergate mentioned in passing later assumed it was some sort of kerfufel over water rights.


Same here. I remember when I was five that I thought Reagan was president for life. We think dumb things when we're kids.

/I'm not saying it is true, but let's just assume so for argument's sake
//yes, I know the President is blah, but I'm really trying to figure out why folks are so upset about the handling of this tragedy.

We've been asking Right Wingers this for days and all the can say is someone, possibly the President, lied about something, somewhere, so it's officially a cover up or something.

They won't explain it to us, apparently it's for Right Wingers only, and if they told us, we'd take it from them and dispel all the myths and lies and they wouldn't have it anymore.

The incumbent administration downplayed a terrorist attack during the last month of a presidential campaign. This is entirely predictable.

Is it a mark against Obama? Yes. By any objective standard, though, he's done a solid job of protecting the country. He's kept up all the questionable defense measures (Guantanamo/drones) against the desires of the left because he knows at the end of the day we are cowards who won't stand behind him if a big attack hits.

If you don't want our government officials to treat us like we "can't handle the truth", then step up and learn to handle the truth. The terrorist win not by killing us, but by convincing us destroy ourselves. Whether we do it by divisiveness or war debt is no concern of theirs.

Democrats stood behind Bush when 3000 died on 9/11. If the right wants to use 4 deaths to sink Obama then they can kiss my proud American ass.

Saying Bengazhi is worse than Watergate is just stupid. Nixon was ordering the FBI to stop an active criminal investigation and AG John Mitchell later went to prison over it. Benghazi is a colossal incompetent clusterf*, and now a coverup, but it doesn't rise to that level, or at least it hasn't yet. There's still time and probably lots of still-unseen crap that hasn't come out.

Cool, show me where statements would have brought back all of the American lives that were lost in the embassy attacks. Show me that what Clinton, Bush, or Obama said after any attack that would have retroactively beefed up security at the installations and saved the lives and then we can start talking.

Until then, they are just farking words that won't bring back 4 dead guys. Stop giving a fark about the video, Obama's statements, and Susan Rice on the morning shows. Start giving a fark if anyone dropped the ball prior to or during the attack and how any mistakes will be corrected in order to avoid further attacks.

Until then, stop talking about the statements in the days after the attack.

"The break in at the Watergate hotel was not nearly as important as failing to define a terrorist attack that killed four Americans"

Wait, the President of the United States active covers up a burglary at the opposing political party's headquarters is not as bad as how the President words a farking statement? Jesus Tap Dancing Christ, you aren't even trying to accuse him of ignoring evidence or covering up the attack in the first place. YOu are saying that the words that he said need a Congressional investigation, but being an accessory to felonies after the fact is just water under the bridge?

Fark, I give up, I can't even begin to guess what's the logic he's using. Is it possible that he has started borrowing some of Limbaugh's Hillbilly Heroin? This shiat makes even less sense than it did eve a week ago, and I thought they'd hit the pinnacle of crazy at that point.

Sure.

It should scandalize you that our standard level of protection for an embassy was overcome by a mob that we should have known was being organized based on the level of organization and coordination in the attack.

Now, that's not to say that heads need to roll, but I do think it means that we should take a very close look at our policies to see if we need to make some changes.
