calm like a bomb: 16.5: Gee, a Clinton pit bull acting like an extinction level event douchebag, again. Who'd a thought?

No, it was actually clever and somewhat funny (and not to mention entirely appropriate). By chance are you a conservative? It would go a long way towards explaining why the humor went over your head.


He thinks FOX employs journalists.

From the reports, it sounds like whomever took the call in Libya really farked up. Fox is/was pretty much the only news outlet digging for more information on this. Their continuing reports from Libya were pretty accurate, for the most part.

For all the Democrats are like "hey, who cares", here's a tip: the Ambassador was killed in the attack, which doesn't happen often, and is a pretty big deal...except in the case of this poor schmuck, who got himself killed in an election year.


If Bush had said for two weeks that 9/11 was caused by the Teletubbies not a single lib would have cared.

what was covered up?

/libtard

He doesn't know. That's how you know it was a coverup. If he knew what was being covered up, then he could tell you. Duh.

woah...that's just like the guy who keeps rearranging my furniture when I'm sleeping...he always manages to get everything back to exactly where it was and disappear without a trace before I wake up.

No it's much worse than that. Have you ever noticed in the morning your kitchen looks EXACTLY THE SAME as it did when you went to bed? This would be like me asking you what is being covered up in your kitchen. You don't know because it's a cover-up, just like Benghazi. For all you know there's a wild sex orgy going on at 2AM only to covered-up at 4AM so you don't notice by 6AM. Patriots like Gentoolive are just asking questions, trying to figure out what went on. Evidence of nothing wrong going on is exactly what they want you to think.

halfof33: Weaver95: you mean that the administration shifted their view as more detailed and accurate information became available? THOSE MONSTERS! Republicans, on the other hand, come up with an explanation based pm inaccurate data and NEVER change their opinion no matter what. because that's how a country should be run, gotdammit!

lolz. You mean how they kept saying it a week after it that lie had been publicly ridiculed as preposterous by the President of Libya?


What exactly is your problem here? That the administration waiting until it knew what it was taking about before making a statement?

There was a video. It did cause violence, which was exactly what it was intended to do. The people who killed the 4 people in Libya attempted to use the international violence caused by the video to get away with killing 4 Americans in a consulate, and we let them think they had succeeded at that while we gathered evidence.

You're one of those people who think the police shouldn't withhold any bit of information to the press, right? Because you have a "right to know".

Go back to watching Nancy Grace.

I guess after the election ass beating AND abandoning New Jersey and New York, the GOP is desperate for SOMETHING they can use to go after Obama.  that unplanned massacre/gun control debate sure didn't help 'em any either for that matter.  all in all, not a good couple months for the Republican party.  they need a win, or something they can call a win at any rate.  if they can go after Clinton or make Benghazi sound like a scandal that'd be something in their favor.

problem is, I don't see it working out for 'em.  the GOP cut the state department security funding and is on record as saying it just wasn't a priority item.  once again, classic example of the Republican party being incompetent and their own worst enemy.  at this point, I think the best/easiest way to f*ck up the GOP is just let 'em talk for a while and not interrupt.

ThatBillmanGuy: Wait, its now a lie that the government spent a lot of time trying to blame this on a Muslim parody film? I'm sort of out of the loop on this, but I remember everyone talking about how that film was to blame. When did that change? What the hell was everyone talking about that film for, then? I'm not up on this Benghazi thing, so I'm seriously asking and not trying to troll, since bringing it up seems to provoke that kind of reaction.


There were anti-American protests in many muslim countries (the one in Egypt got a lot of press in particular) that same day, all of which were protests against the movie. In Libya, that was used as cover for a terrorist attack on the consulate using fairly heavy weapons. IIRC the walls of at least one other US embassy/consulate were breached the same day by protesters, but they weren't heavily armed and were quickly repelled.

The US government, including the people in the consulate who were being attacked tried to explain that the US government and most Americans had nothing to do with the film and thought it was disgusting. Unfortunately some religious fanatics there were unable to see that the actions of a small group of people aren't necessarily indicative of the views of an entire people ( odd, because religious fanatics here seem to have no trouble grasping that about muslims, which you can see by the way many Christians refer to Islam as "the religion of peace" ).

People who hate Obama for whatever reason immediately seized on his failure to specifically use the words "Act Of Terror", with implied capital letters, combined with his comments that the guy who made the movie was an obvious nut and not endorsed by anyone as an indication that he was blaming the movie and soft on terrorism, and immediately began scouring the internet hoping to find pictures of Osama Bin Laden making out with Obama that they could use in their frantic facebook posts.

I can give you a timeline for all that, but honestly I'm just tired of hearing about.

How many Ambassadors were killed in Newtown CT? Trick question, the correct answer is 20 children and 6 adults, not counting the shooter's mother. Which one of these is the bigger deal and why? Use any sources you wish.

I understand no Ambassador actually died during the Bush years, but there were A LOT of these types of attacks where Americans died:
June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.

February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.

July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan
Suicide bomber kills two.

December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.

March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomat

September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria
Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb. One killed and 13 wounded.

March 18, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana'a, Yemen
Mortar attack misses embassy, hits nearby girls' school instead.

July 9, 2008, U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey
Armed men attacked consulate with pistols and shotguns. Three policemen killed.

September 17, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana'a, Yemen
Militants dressed as policemen attacked the embassy with RPGs, rifles, grenades and car bombs. Six Yemeni soldiers and seven civilians were killed. Sixteen more were injured.

Oh yeah - and there was that whole WTC Bin Laden attack that Bush ignored warnings of.  If you are not outraged by any of the above attacks and didn't voice it back then, we all can safely assume you are nothing but a shill carrying water for the right wing because ... you're pathetic I guess.

"Please proceed" is the order of the day.

The thing is after each of these dreadful blunders the GOP try to rally and explain why the last PR nightmare is not really a big deal. But before the shiny new narrative gets a chance to gel there is a whole new PR disaster.

I think they just still havent adjusted to the digital age. They keep thinking they can control the narrative with smoke and mirrors. They have progressed to using these newfangled social media outlets but they really have no idea how it all works so they rely on Drudge. All Drudge cares about is selling guns. He doesnt give one whit about these peoples careers. And so he leads them merrily on. Hes like the pied piper of derp.

spiderpaz: Silly Jesus: garkola: State farked up and EOP tried to hide it. Rice took the fall because, well, why not?

From the reports, it sounds like whomever took the call in Libya really farked up. Fox is/was pretty much the only news outlet digging for more information on this. Their continuing reports from Libya were pretty accurate, for the most part.

For all the Democrats are like "hey, who cares", here's a tip: the Ambassador was killed in the attack, which doesn't happen often, and is a pretty big deal...except in the case of this poor schmuck, who got himself killed in an election year.

If Bush had said for two weeks that 9/11 was caused by the Teletubbies not a single lib would have cared.

You're really going to compare this to 2000 Americans being killed by planes crashing into NY city?

Wow, I hope even you are starting to realize how stupid you sound at this point.

Wait, why am I talking to it?  My bad.


You mean 4 doesn't equal 2000? Weird.

Of course I'm not comparing it on that level. I'm simply comparing two terror attacks and how the administration reacted to them. In both cases it was known immediately that it was terrorism. In one case, that was told to the public, in the other, a lie was substituted for a period of time. Now, libs are acting like the lie is a non issue. I wholeheartedly believe that there would have been immense lib butthurt if Bush had lied for weeks about the cause of a terrorist attack under his administration. You really want to tell me that libs wouldn't have cared?

Silly Jesus: Somehow athletes get concussed and come back into the football game minutes later while Clinton can't seem to talk weeks later.


Unless they're 68 year old athletes with very little physical conditioning and poor eating habits and have to fly across the world day in and day out.

calm like a bomb: FTDA: ginandbacon: calm like a bomb: ginandbacon: When did this level of crass vitriol become socially acceptable in public?

October 7, 1996

I think we have a winner...

Really? Because Charles Wegg Solicitor-Prosser, died at the age of 86? Oh, you mean this is the date the O'reilly Factor debuted! Got it now.

/my bad
//carry on

No, Charlie P was the only thing that held us in check. His death was a tragedy. What the hell is the O'reilly Factor?


Bill O'Reillys whackadoodle news talk show on Fox. Follow the link and scroll down to the paragraph on it.

First aired on October 7th, 1996.

Yes, that's true. The Bush Administration did try to tie the attacks to Iraq for months. Good of you to point that out.

If any of this would have come from a member of the MSM Mainstream Media during the time of Bush the Patriot, said reporter would have been dragged to Gitmo and waterboarded.

To be a conservative you have to believe that:

Waiting a week for all the information to come in before stating for certain that the attack was an act of terror

          Is WORSE than

Lying to the American people and the UN for years so that you could invade the middle east, resulting in thousands of American deaths, and hundreds of thousands of non American deaths and the expense of over $1 Trillion

mizchief: So yea, I think it's fair to assume that Obama's likely successor would try to distance herself from this issue by conveniently falling ill until the next crisis draws attention away.


If that's the case, you gotta give Hillary some props. Downing a big ol' jar of norovirus, puking 'till she passes out, and taking a header to sit this one out is pretty badass.

Weaver95: Silly Jesus:
Huh? Even in the report after the fact that came out recently they stated clearly that there was no reason whatsoever to ever believe that the attacks were related to the video. The idea that it was ever a rational thought or seriously considered by those in the know has been discredited.

and once that had been verified the administration changed their view on the matter.  again - what's your point here?


The report said that there was never any reason to believe that it was not a terrorist attack. From the first second, nobody thought it was about the video. What's so hard to understand that? The administration knew that from the beginning. Are you arguing that it took them two weeks to verify that they knew from the start and that they needed to make up a lie in the interim?

halfof33: Weaver95: I asked for clarification and you assumed it to be an attack...?

HEE HEE! C'mon Weaves, not the "interesting" dodge again.

Weaves; Obvious partisan attack.
me: nice partisan attack.
Weaves: You think that was a partisan attack... interesting...

Just so you know weaves, everything i post in these threads is taken from the non-partisan Fact Check dot org site.

Weaves: so you felt you had to explain that you were being non-partisan.... interesting....


you do this a lot.  you make a statement, claim it to be true then avoid clarifying your statement in any way.  then you assume that its all part of some vast conspiracy to...do what again, exactly?  oh, right.  you won't clear that up either.  hey, conspiracy right?  f*cking chemtrails.  I'll bet that's what it is, and you ain't sharing what it is you know dammit!

on a somewhat more serious note, I have no idea what point it is you think you're trying to make.  that the administration is incompetent?  that there was a coverup of some sort?  coverup of what?  who was involved?  what was the point of the conspiracy?  was there even a conspiracy in the first place?  I can't make any gotdamn sense out of your comments, they seem - to me at least - to be random and disjointed phrases taken out of context and just pasted in wherever you felt there was a blank spot in the narrative.  And when I ask you follow up questions and try to sort out where you are coming from...you accuse me of attacking you.  its all very confusing.
