Hey, the coverup is worse than the crime; and it has to be a pretty big crime, otherwise why would they still be covering it up?

I see how it is important to have Fox News keep us infromed.  I was under the impression that there were security threats and protests in 20 other countries that day with diplomats being killed in other capitals.  Clearly only Libya had anything going on that day based on the article so I was misinfromed by the gotcha-media.

They want Obama to resign. Then they want Biden to resign. That would make Boehner president and the country could start to heal.

I think all of this top-down derpitude is a massive conspiracy by NewsCorp and conservative media to get more democrats in power so that they can continue to make piles of money

Either that or they are dumber than a box of hair

As with all extortion, there is no higher principle than $$$$.   Hagel is going to slash the military budget.    They was a SOD who will hand the military a blank check of taxpayer money, that will "trickle down" to their defense contractor lobbyists which will "trickle down" to some all inclusive resort  getaways and PAC funding for politicians who play ball.

Meanwhile, in Derpistan..


Imagine the questions that would have come: What did Obama do through the long, bloody night? Whom did he talk to? When did he learn that Stevens was dead?

The president's only instructions, Panetta said, were, "Do whatever you need to do," though he left the details "up to us."

It would be nice to know what Obama did during the nearly 11 hours from the start of the first attack until that plane left Libya, but in truth, we know enough to understand the meaning. His detachment during a terrorist attack was a shameful dereliction of duty.

Had he been a military officer, he would face charges. If he were George Bush, he would face ridicule and condemnation, at the least.

Actually, the person who would have made that phone call was laid off a few months prior. Turns out the House wanted to cut some spending to put a slight dent in the deficit so as to look like they were making a difference, and they cut some money from the State Department's budget, resulting in some job losses. Don't worry, though, it was just some dumb security jobs that embassies don't even need, right? Good job on that deficit reduction! And all the jobs!

So the scandal is that they couldn't accurately put events together in the immediate aftermath. If only they had an embassy with staff on the ground who could fill in the gaps.  Oh wait.

What possible benefit could the White House derive from "lying" about this thing for two weeks?

If it was a coverup, why did the correction come from the administration instead of from some whistle-blower or investigative reporter?  And, if was a coverup, why didn't the administration keep the matter covered up beyond an important milestone, like, say, the presidential election?

The right wingnut conspiracy theories about this issue make no more sense than the birther conspiracies...and, maybe that's the problem: birthers and Benghazi-ers are pretty stupid people, generally speaking.

He's not a general, operational planning is not the presidents job.

His job is to say yes or no, when a plan is laid before him.  That's it.  Everything else is left to people who plan stuff like this for a living.

Remember; these people wouldn't be happy about ANY outcome.  If Obama micromanaged the situation they would hate him for it.  If he was hands off and let the chain of command handle it they would hate him for it.

Nope. the House is first. Then the Senate Pro-tem. That is one of the reason Nancy Pelosi was supposed to fly on Air Force Two when she was speaker. Boehner flies commercial, and I bet the Secret Service isn't very happy about that.

An honest chronology would have revealed the president's shocking behavior during the most successful attack against Americans by foreigners since 9/11.

It is like when the police need to convict someone for a crime but have no suspect, so they detain an innocent person and interrogate them until they confess.It is like either the Republicans hopes that happens, or they can catch Obama lying about a blowjob during the interrogation.

The good part about  Benghazi is if you hear someone talking about it like it's a conspiracy you know they are a farking moran of the highest order and you can ignore everything they say.

DeaH: That is one of the reason Nancy Pelosi was supposed to fly on Air Force Two when she was speaker.


The only way a House speaker can fly on Air Force Two is if he or she is flying with the vice president.

Air Force Two is not a specific aircraft; it's a call sign.

For your further enlightenment, he's Snopes' take on the Speaker's transportation: Jet Set

lilbjorn: Because it's UTTERLY FARKING STUPID to go around broadcasting details of how the State Department, CIA, and military respond to terrorist situations.


I think you meant: didn't respond.

And what is particularly interesting is the key lie (that the attack spontaneously arose out of an anti-video protest) had nothing to do with "responding to terrorist situations."  But Obama was busy, so any old lie in a crisis, a re-election crisis.

FTA:According to Panetta, President Obama checked in with his military team early on during the attack, then checked out for the rest of the night.

In the interest of presenting the liberal (i.e. true) side of this:

(tldr, "You didn't build that" all over again)

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/02/07/conservative-media-selectivel y -crop-panettas-co/192580

Conservative media are pushing selectively cropped footage of Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey as evidence that President Obama was "AWOL" the night of the Benghazi attack. In reality, Panetta and Dempsey emphasized that Obama's involvement was appropriate and that the White House was kept "well-informed" throughout the night.

...

Both The Weekly Standard  and Fox News' video cuts off just as Army General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who was also testifying, corrected Ayotte as to the White House's focus the night of the Benghazi attack. Gen. Dempsey attested to the fact that although Obama did not personally follow up with him, Obama's staff was engaged "pretty constantly through the period, which is the way it would normally work."

...

Panetta also testified to the fact that Obama was in contact with military officials and was "well-informed" during the attack on our consulate, another part of the testimony that was ignored by conservative media. Special Report aired a portion of Sen. Lindsey Graham's questioning, but cut off Panetta's defense of Obama.
 
2013-02-11 03:45:55 PM
Know why Obama is not being asked any questions about the drone war?

Because you assholes derped it up over Benghazi, birth certificates, and all manner of meaningless non-issues.  You went to the well 1 too many times, and in doing so you just created a public image of Obama as a "teflon" president who can do no wrong.

I hope you're happy.
