reading over this thread again, I can't even tell what it is Obama supposedly lied about.  No wonder the Republican party is falling apart, they can't even clearly articulate what it is they think is wrong with the Obama administration.  its just mindless bloody minded rage against Obama and libruls and all things not Republican.

Philip Francis Queeg: Silly Jesus: Philip Francis Queeg: Silly Jesus: I do know, though, that if Dubya had similarly lied in the wake of a terror attack the lib reaction wouldn't be "meh."

That's undoubtedly true. I mean the Democrats impeached Bush for his lies tying 9/11 to Irq as a justification for invasion, right?

What?

Bush did lie after a terror attack. What was the lib reaction?


He immediately said they were terrorists, not protestors over X. He went to the wrong country afterwards, true.

sprawl15: quickdraw: Silly Jesus: The one by Lieberman. Points out that everyone on the ground was immediately saying that there were no protests whatsoever and Obama continued to blame a guy in California for days.

So youre saying the BBC staged all this?

Please proceed....

From your link: "The protests followed an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday - in which the ambassador to Libya was killed in a fire"


Yep and just above that it says "Protests against an anti-Islam film made in the US spread across the Middle East and North Africa - including Egypt, Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia"

And you know what? We are both right because both of those things happened. Which means that either Lieberman's report is wrong or you have misquoted it.

MyRandomName: Fluorescent Testicle: 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.

The various protests really were triggered by the video; the terrorists just used the one in Benghazi as a cover.

No they didnt. Stop repeating debunked white house talking points. There was never a protest in benghazi.


Benghazi? No such place.

spiderpaz: garkola: 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.

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.


..BUT...BUT...THOSE WERE ALL FARTBONGO'S FAULT! DAMN THAT NI*BONG AND HIS MAGIC TIME MACHINE111!1!

Benghazi is a city in a country. A protest in one city in a country does not equal a protest in all cities in that country.

1. There is a protest in Buffalo.
2. BBC reports that there's a protest in the U.S.
3. quickdraw concludes that there were clearly protests in Philadelphia.

urbangirl: david_gaithersburg: September
October
November
December

She has been unavailable for four months now, sounds like a fair question to put forward.

Wrong. Haven't been able to find the exact date she was suppposed to have testified, but a Washington Post article from November 15 said she would but that a date had not yet been set.
So you see, she hasn't been dodging anything because the end of November comes AFTER September.

OK, so you admit he lied about the terrorist attack. How did the libs react? Was Bush Impeached? How many members of hiss Administration resigned because of the lib outrage over the lies? Did the Libs refuse to confirm Condi Rice as Secretary of State because of her role in the lies?

Delivering approved intelligence talking points is not lying. You are a pedant who thinks that the US intelligence community should take media interviews into consideration when deciding what the official response should be at any given point in time. I'm sorry you think things should work that way. That's not really a problem with the administration or the intelligence community, it is a problem with you. But, you know, Obama lied, people died!  *fist in the air*

theknuckler_33: Silly Jesus: theknuckler_33: Silly Jesus: The report said that FROM THE BEGINNING they knew it was a terrorist attack. It says that thinking that it was about the video was at no time legitimate. The only thing that evolved was the lie.

Just curious, but how did these dastardly lies a) harm the US, b) benefit Obama or the administration, c) have any effect whatsoever on anything. I mean, I get that you are upset that Rice said 5 days later that "the best information we have at this time" while stating about half a dozen caveats was a bunch of information that was not accurate... I really do. Is that shocking though?  I mean, for goodness sakes... 5 days. It took a YEAR before they even set up a friggin' commission to investigate the original 9/11 attacks and you are losing your shiat over stuff said on a TV news show 5 days after the event happened. AND... the 'lies' benefitted noone. What in good God's name are you so farking upset about??!?!?

2013-01-03 05:39:34 PM

olddinosaur: The facts are not in dispute:

The consulate was under seige for more than 8 hours, both Obama and Clinton were notified in 90 minutes + or - 15 minutes, and did nothing. Two Navy SEALS who were nearby were ordered to stand down, and both died when they disobeyed orders and defended the consulate anyway.

There never was a protest over that film, and at the time only 300 people had seen the trailer, about what you woud expect for the number of people who made it.

Both Clinton and Obama knew all this, but maintained a false cover story for at least two weeks.

Four men died because they screwed up, and they have some mighty hard questions to answer.


Let 4 embassy staff die and your number's up, but bomb a pakistani funeral and no one in the GOP cares? There's plenty of other farkups to latch on to. What's the appeal of this one?

He's upset that it seems obvious that the US Government knew soon after the attacks that there were no protest IN BENGHAZI and that the attacks were clearly originated from a terrorist group. However, from this report and the statements made in the days after the attacks, he is taking all references to protests in statements from government spokespeople to mean that they were referring to protests IN BENGHAZI even though none of the statements said that at all. This, combined apparently, with a lack of proper verbiage regarding 'terrorists', 'terrorist attacks', or some other magical word combination as yet defined, constitutes a serious of outrageous lies heaped upon the American people in order to... uh... ummm.... well, never really got an answer to that part of the equation, but they LIED... don't you see?

Its faith based political hackery. I dunno. I think the whole Benghazi narrative is a no go to anyone but the faithful and at this point the GOP is hemorrhaging the faithful as quickly as the Catholic church. Interesting isnt it how they both share the same ancient nemesis? Perhaps thats the historic narrative which fits here. The GOP reliving the doomed crusades of the Catholic church against Islam.

Obama claimed, multiple times, that the embassy contained weapons of mass destruction. This was proven to be false, and we ended up going to war over it which caused many thousands of deaths.

People should be outraged, and yes, we deserve some answers.
