McCain was furious in '08 when Susan Rice, then an Obama '08 aide, called BS on his stroll thru Iraq market w/100 soldiers and 5 copters.

MFAWG: Apocalyptic Inferno: Obama had to have known Republicans would seize on this when he sent her out with the inaccurate Benghazi talking points. The administration has all but guaranteed she will not make it through a Senate confirmation.

Again, what is inaccurate about her talking points, which were signed off on by former Right Wing Demigod David David Petraeus.


I thought I heard the original intelligence from the CIA was altered for her statements to place more emphasis on reaction to a video and away from terrorist implications. Additionally, by the time she went on, many people, including the Libyan prime minister, were indicating that it wasn't a demonstration against a video.

Bump in the road

Hey winterwhile, did your old account get banned or did it die of embarrassment?

Haha, but seriously, is that Nate Silver a genius or what? Boy did he make the kids at Fox "news" look stupid!

Feel like explaining the origin of the 'bump in the road' thing? I must have missed that one.

No idea, I just love calling out all the alts now that the election is over. His idiotic semantics and repetitive ellipses gave him away in another thread.


Oh, ok. Am I wrong that I have seen that 'bump in the road' thing more than just a few times from trolls recently? It seems to have become a thing.

Granny_Panties: Rose Garden

10:43 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger.

Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We're working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I've also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.

Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

Already, many Libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens's body to the hospital, where we tragically learned that he had died.

It's especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save. At the height of the Libyan revolution, Chris led our diplomatic post in Benghazi. With characteristic skill, courage, and resolve, he built partnerships wi ...


Even if there was mention of a video it would hardly be the crime of the century. It's not like invading an annoying third world country on bogus intelligence for example.

AdolfOliverPanties: He keeps this up and people will forget that McCain wasn't always on the wrong side of every story and issue. They will forget that he was against torture, was sometimes a reasonable voice in the GOP, was able to poke fun at himself on TV and appeared not to be an intractable mean old asshole.

It is like he is determined to be remembered as a doddering old fool.


Hell, he was the first Senator--on either side of the aisle--to call for an investigation of some kind into the so-called intelligence used to justify Iraq. I liked him back then. He WAS a "maverick". He bucked the GOP when the GOP was first starting this trend of never questioning the Party.

Then he decided to run for President, turned into a total dick, and blew all the goodwill he previously built. The final nail in the coffin for me was when he hooked up with that brainless coont.

MFAWG: fusillade762: McCain's been pissed at Rice since she said mean things about him during the 2008 campaign. Guy can hold a grudge, that's for sure.

"His tendency is to shoot first and ask first questions later, it is dangerous and we can't afford four more years of this reckless foreign policy," Susan Rice said to reporters about McCain in August 2008.

"On critical, factual questions that are fundamental to understanding what is going on in Iraq and the region, Senator McCain has gotten it wrong and not just once but repeatedly," said Rice in June 2008.

She appears to be referring to his inability to distinguish Sunni from shiate after we had been there 5 years


Man... I had an ex who spent nearly a year in Iraq (03) who didn't really get the difference between Sunni and shiate and didn't know what Chaldean Iraqis were at the time. Did later but damn if that didn't make it wretchedly apparent that we were gonna have a big, big problem there... more so than before which was stupidly obvious from the get go.

Aren't there on the ground witnesses that say a demonstration against the video did in fact take place? How hard is to believe that these guys either set it up as cover, or just took advantage of a situation?

Yes, she is clearly using carefully worded language, but the complaint seems to be that since she isn't screaming OMGTERRORISM!!!!! while running around the room, she's unqualified to be the chief diplomat of these here United States.

I don't think I'm buying it. OTOH, they were going to fight every appointment tooth and nail anyway, so why not go after her with this weak sauce. Should be good for some LULZ, anyway.

The FBI requested a change in language which originally stated the U.S. "knew" Islamic extremists participated in the attack. According to a U.S. intelligence official the wording was changed to "there are indications" Islamic extremists participated.

The initial version included information linking individuals involved in the attack to al Qaeda, according to a senior U.S. official familiar with the drafting of the talking points But when the document was sent to the rest of the intelligence community for review, there was a decision to change "al Qaeda" to "extremists." The official said the change was made for legitimate intelligence and legal reasons, not for political purposes.

The White House on Friday said it made only one change, substituting the word "mission" for "consulate."

And what did she say that was so in competent?

She basically said that there had been demonstrations across the middle east that day, including one in Benghazi. She then went on to say that extremists took advantage of this, hijacked the protest and actually turned it into a terrorist attack.

Yea, saw that.

This isn't really hard to figure out: the Consulate was being used as cover for a CIA operation, and they needed a few days to clean that up without tipping their hand more than it already was.

So where's the scandal? I suppose some liberals would find using the State Department as cover for the CIA an outrage. I think it's a bad way to do things, but it's not like it hasn't been done that way for decades.

It WAS a demonstration against the video.

It was a demonstration that was hijacked by terrorists. There had been other demonstrations that day, and the terrorists obviously saw an open window to drive down and start trouble. I don't understand why people can't understand this VERY SIMPLE concept.

That is unless the partisan wall is blocking their view of the situation.

Obama referred to Benghazi as a "bump in the road" one time which was immediately interpreted by the derpers as Obama not giving a shiat about those people who died.

skullkrusher: she said what she was told. That the attack was a spontaneous offshoot of protests about the movie. Turns out that this was not the case, apparently. She is not at fault, however.


That's NOT what she said. Here's what she said:

But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous - not a premeditated - response to what had transpired in Cairo. In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.

We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to - or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo. And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons, weapons that as you know in - in the wake of the revolution in Libya are - are quite common and accessible. And it then evolved from there.


That's what she said. It started out as an actual protest, and then the terrorists crashed the party.

Which is exactly what happened. It wasn't "spontaneous", and she didn't say so. What she said was that the initial demonstration WAS spontaneous. The attack, on the other hand was not "spontaneous". It was a terrorist attack, most likely a contingency plan if they ever got a situation like this handed to them.

Awesome application of the filter.

But yeah, it's unbelievable how little the man knows about the Middle East. Wasn't surprised when I read this story:

On the grounds between the two brick colleges, the chitchat between the scion of four-star admirals and the son of a prizefighter turns to their academic travels; both colleges sponsor a trip abroad for young officers to network with military and political leaders in a distant corner of the globe.

"I'm going to the Middle East," Dramesi says. "Turkey, Kuwait, Lebanon, Iran."

"Why are you going to the Middle East?" McCain asks, dismissively.

"It's a place we're probably going to have some problems," Dramesi says.

"Why? Where are you going to, John?"

"Oh, I'm going to Rio."

"What the hell are you going to Rio for?"

McCain, a married father of three, shrugs.

One of the very few vocal nationally elected representatives who opposed giving a national holiday dedicated to the legacy of Martin Luther King. Supported all of Reagan's nefarious meddling in the world. Personally met with and supported Augusto Pincohet. A member of the Keating 5.

Maybe not always on the the wrong side of every issue, but damn near close.

Mainly what he is, more than anything, is an egomaniac who enjoys employing a contrarian vendetta and thorn in the side to anyone he thinks has wronged him. This might given the appearance that he's a "maverick" or "independent" when he's doing it to the GOP, but mainly he's just playing troll. If he were a TV character, he would be Major Valchek from The Wire.

That's what Rice initially said because that was the info she was given. It has come out since then that the CIA had info that the attack was the work of terrorist planning rather than a spontaneous escalation of a protest. The GOP wants to nail Rice for something over which she had no control. However, even Dianne Feinstein, while defending Rice's comments as an honest relaying of the info she had and saying the WH had no role in massaging the points, wants to know why the CIA talking points were inaccurate at the outset.

The GOP wants to nail Rice for something over which she had no control. However, even Dianne Feinstein, while defending Rice's comments as an honest relaying of the info she had and saying the WH had no role in massaging the points, wants to know why the CIA talking points were inaccurate at the outset.


I actually watched Feinstein yesterday.

So there was no protest? A couple of cars full of heavily armed men just showed up out of the blew and opened fire on the compound?
