unlikely: Also... when the current Republican leadership start showing some outrage for well-documented outright lies that were told intentionally and led directly to the deaths of 4500 Americans and god knows how many others, THEN they'll have a little credibility; until then they really ought to STFU and reflect on where they went so far off the rails.

Bloody William: Come on. Walk me through it. This isn't obvious to my tiny liberal mind, so you need to explain it to me slowly.


It's very simple.

Obama is black.
And a Democrat.
He is willing to let Bush's billionaire tax cuts expire.
He is also, horror of horrors, a bit of an environmentalist.
And rather popular with the general public.
And he did the unthinkable: got Bin Laden.
He is a living, breathing affront to the right wing information bubble, and the derp-wingers who thrive there.
His very existence puts the lie to everything they stand for.
So, Republicans wasted a lot of time, energy and money trying to stop him from being re-elected.
They spent the weeks before the election declaring themselves the winners, in spite of all evidence to the contrary..
Their loss was epic.
Their humiliation was televised.
And now their butthurt can be seen from orbit.

And that's what Benghazi is all about, Charlie Brown.

mark12A:

What you have here is the "modified limited hangout". They are making up lies to cover for their initial lie that it was a video that triggered the assault. IT WAS NOT. It was an Al Quada attack, it was obvious to everyone involved, but it was embarrassing to the Obamessiah to have a terrorist attack just before the election. And it reveals how they left our embassey guys out hanging in the breeze. For political expediency.


Yeah, because having a consulate overrun and an ambassador murdered by a disorganized mob of random twats is much less embarrassing.

With insight like that, you should be at Langley.

cameroncrazy1984: badhatharry: cameroncrazy1984: badhatharry: There was no protest in Benghazi. It was a planned and coordinated attack by terrorists

That's not what the CIA said. Additionally, that's not what witnesses say.

So, where was the lie? Who do you believe more? The CIA or Fox News?

I believe President Mohammad Magarief. Link

So what you are saying is you expect the president and the CIA to see into the future to find what evidence will eventually come to light saying that it was a pre-planned act.

You literally think Obama has a time machine. Brilliant.


They didn't need a time machine or even an investigation. It was a goddamned CIA office. What do you think they do there? They probably already had a list of the guys attcking them.

when she described the attack as spontaneous violence that grew out of protests of an anti-Islam film.

NO


SHE


DIDN'T


No, she didn't. Not at all. Not even in the slightest. If that's what you got from her statement, then your comprehension skills absolutely suck, and you need to have some serious talks not just with your schoolteachers, but your farking parents as well.

She said that there was a "spontaneous protest" that was "hijacked" by "extremists" who turned it into an "attack". These terrorists saw an opportunity and took advantage of it. By the end, it WASN'T a "protest" any more, but a terrorist attack. Unfortunately for you morons, it DID start out as a protest, and she said this from the beginning. SHe never said that the "protest" just turned into an attack, she pointed to the extremist element and specifically said that they hijacked it.

God, I didn't think that I could have any less respect for the entire political Right after their last 4 years, but now not only are they sleazy assholes, they are apparently too stupid to leave out in the rain unattended, you never know if they suddenly look up, forget to look back down, and drown in the street.

halfof33: theknuckler_33: What is trolling is claiming the parenthetical statement is a fact. She did her job and gave the statements she was authorized to make. Period.

And I'm pretty sure I pointed out that she was just the administrations mouthpiece, right? And that the adminstration had more than enough information before she was sent on her little errands to stop her from repeating it.

You think this is about RICE????? Mind Boggles.

/Ignore... (just kidding, I'm not a complete pussy)


You aren't making a very cogent argument about what this is 'about'. Somehow an attack on our consulate killing 4 Americans is much more damaging for Obama politically if it resulted from an organized al-queada terrorist attack than if it were the result of a spontaneous riot, therefore this is why the Obama admin pushed Rice into making those statements? That's a highly strained premise is the reason why people are mocking you. Where do you get this notion that the American people went "oh, 4 americans killed by angry mob... ok. Sad, but whaddya gonna do" but would have gone "4 americans killed by organized al-queda terrorist attack! DAMN YOU FARTBONGO!!!!".

Dude, that doesn't make a farking lick of sense. Most people are upset about 4 americans dead. Not the method by which that happened. So, you invented this premise that Obama's motive for *supposedly* changing the Rice talking points (which is disputed anyway) was to limit the political damage from a terrorist attack rather than a mob attack when there is literally nothing to indicate that a mob attack would have been any less damaging than the terrorist attack. You took what happened and invented a premise that allowed you to give an ulterior motive to something you think Obama did. That's pretty outrageously tenuous.

I do enjoy this part of the conspiracy theory.

You see, the Obama administration (maybe Obama himself?) scoured youtube for anti-Islamic media and settled on this film as the cover for their nefarious plot.

Fun fact: A Palestinian liberation group was the first group to take responsibility for 9/11/01. Taking credit for actions doesn't mean shiat until vetted by intelligence there, Chief Chucklef*ck.

And the terrorists who were captured by Libya in the aftermath did confess to using the other existing protests in San'aa and Cairo over the video as a cover for their attack.

They need spies to ID and find the attackers. No scandal. Not for you.

You've obviously not seen the part of the video where all of the terrorists raised their ID cards to the drone cameras. It was like doing "the wave" at a stadium. We already knew who they were. There was no need for spies, or for their protection.

You're also missing the part where we have surveillance drones patrolling every street corner of the world at any given moment, WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!!!
