Apocalyptic Inferno: The other thing about 'did Obama say this was a terrorist attack fast enough' is that I don't think this was a "terrorist" attack, at least in the sense that I would use the word. This was an act of war on a military and political target, not an attack against civilians or an attack otherwise intended to "terrify" a populace.
MFAWG: 40 years of perceived Republican supremacy on National Defense have been shattered, and this is all they have left. At this exact moment I'm listening to Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani expound on the subject.
Erebus1954: ghare:Obama has BLACK CHILDREN!Obama lives in government housing with his mother-in-law.
Mrtraveler01: Citation please?
Mrtraveler01: Mrbogey: Obama gets a call in the middle of the day about an attack on an embassy and nothing is done about it for hours.Citation please?
Mrtraveler01: Hobodeluxe: Mrtraveler01: Mrbogey: GOP: "Why did Obama fail to protect an embassy where 4 Americans died in a prolonged attack?"This is actually a valid question.Instead all I've heard on TV today is a bunch of retards derping about some conspiracy as to how this whole thing is a coverup.why did HE fail to protect them?He's not farking clairvoyant that's why.You act as though they intentionally left them unprotected in the face of some huge imminent attack that they knew was coming.I didn't mean to word it like that.I meant to ask the question was the threat in Libya taken as seriously as it should've.Outside of that, I don't buy the whole coverup derp that seems to be the center focus of this investigation.
Mugato: They're going to keep this shiat up for another 2-3 years? Because it's already played out.
jehovahs witness protection: Funny how the left doesn't give a shiat about terrorists killing Americans unless they are watching a foot race.
JerseyTim: If you step back and really examine what the Republicans are saying, it's pretty farking disgusting. When you get right down to it, their argument is basically that the President cares so little about Americans that he sat idly by and let them die.I don't know how Obama doesn't flip his shiat on a daily basis.
Mugato: Animatronik: The narrative about it being a popular protest was a fiction created by the Obama administration.What difference would it make if it was an attack because of that video or if it was a certified TerrorTMattack? What difference does it make and how is any of that a lie?
Curious: i once took a kickback from a contractor. needed the money and he would have got the job anyway. got away with it and it was in new orleans. but it was wrong and i knew it was wrong. do i lose sleep over it? no. do i temper my indignation when others do similar things? somewhat. does any of that excuse what the banks did with the foreclosure mess? hell no.
studs up: Curious: Lionel Mandrake: Oh, that's happening, all right...didn't you see the Nazi thugs roaming the streets of Boston crashing down doors without warrants after the "terrorist" bombings?[assets.nydailynews.com image 635x443]make fun all you want that isn't the America i grew up in.The best part of this was the fact that the douchebag was eventually found by a guy that decided that being told to stay indoors was stupid and walked outside for 5 minutes. All the king's horses missed him and didn't believe that an alert citizenry would be helpful. Perhaps, just perhaps, the govt as the sole protector is a little over-rated.I'm sure I'll get hammered for this.
Curious: NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: I would like to live in the fairy tale world where the cops have access to your perfect hindsight before anything actually happens.[qph.is.quoracdn.net image 485x281]i would like to live in a world where this doesn't happen. thank god the two ladies in that truck weren't killed. yes two women not one man in a completely different make, model and color truck had their truck shot to shiat by hair trigger police. if that's a fairy tale world were that doesn't happen let me in.
Curious: true but if asked they should answer truthfully. hell i'm sympathetic to him getting some on the side. the stories of the late night phones calls and the book gift strike a chord in me.but damn that lying under oath just ain't right.

Raharu: Lets take a look as see what conservatives think about this.
Mrbogey: CheapEngineer: Well, it's done a great job of making Robo Cheney and his pals damn rich. Wasn't that the intent?While you're picking apart each hour and minute of Obama's response to that embassy attack, how about someone digging into the GW Bush Presidential library archives and getting a nice timeline for who did what and when for the *several* times this happened to his administration? You know, for a fair comparison? I mean, if he was such a leader (and foreign policy genius) it should be elementary to lay out the timeline of how G-Dub whomped the decisionating on similar events! Teach that Chicago Liberal a thing or two 'bout bein the Decider, amirite?Surely you'd have no problem, after all this time for the public to look over the previous administration with the same magnifying glass you insist on using today.\$5 says at least half of 'em Cheney didn't tell him about till later in the week\\if he told him at all\\\which would explain that blank look on his face when the public raised hell over "his policies"You're such a caricature of a paranoid Democrat that I'd venture this is an attempt at a Poe's Law.
Lionel Mandrake: Mrtraveler01: Mrbogey: Obama gets a call in the middle of the day about an attack on an embassy and nothing is done about it for hours.Citation please?It's true. I saw it on Breitbart.
CheapEngineer: tenpoundsofcheese: MaudlinMutantMollusk: Funny how the right doesn't give a shiat about terrorists killing Americans unless there's a Democrat in officedid you miss the reaction to 9/11?(check your old newspapers, a lot of things happened back then).Oh, we remember.[www.mrmediatraining.com image 640x360]\We also remember it being used as an excuse for Dick to get the Police State he always wanted
Smoking GNU: tenpoundsofcheese: MFK: Ok, So correct me if I'm wrong here, but I'm seriously trying to understand why the Republicans are so butthurt.This is how I understand it:* Attack on embassy* Administration initially says it was because of riots over youtube video because that was happening in 2 or 3 other counties at the exact same time* More info emerges over the next few days and administration says "this looks like it was actually a terrorist attack"* Republicans: "Why didn't you say it was terrorism on day 1? OMGIMPEACH!!!1!11"Am I missing anything?yes. a lot.We're waiting

Mrbogey: Your complete lack of curiosity in what caused the death of 4 Americans speaks volumes about your "bleeding heart".
Hobodeluxe: Mrbogey: Hobodeluxe: [p.twimg.com image 850x593]I believe this has been retread several times. But hey, if you want to keep peddling inaccurate talking points go ahead.it's not inaccurate
Mart Laar's beard shaver: bronyaur1: jehovahs witness protection: Funny how the left doesn't give a shiat about terrorists killing Americans unless they are watching a foot race.Funny how the right didn't care about embassy murders until the President was a black guy.That's some weak shiat you're peddling, right there.No, the right wanted the Al-Q people dead in Africa. Too bad Clinton bombed an aspirin factory instead.
Smoking GNU: AtlanticCoast63: ....my two cents:1. President Obama is not responsible for anything that happened at Benghazi. He is not omniscient nor omnipotent, no matter how much people on both sides of the aisle would like him to be, for reasons of either praise or blame.2. WHATEVER responsibility for this Chinese fire drill lies at State and Defense. It was aggravated by the refusal on the part of some Presidential appointees to acknowledge that Islamic militants may, indeed, consider a terrorist attack on September 11th.3. I believe that former SecState Clinton knew exactly what happened (after a full internal investigation, not before/during the attack) and played it down in order to protect the President and her own political future.4. The response would, if anything, have been even more Farked up in a McCain or Romney administration./You may open fire when ready, Farkers.Sounds about right.It always amazes me that the right-wingers in the us are always instantly denying Obama any kind of credit for getting osama because he was "Stealing credit from the Seals who got him" since he didn't personally go in, yet the embassy attacks are 100% his fault or whatever since he is president. It makes no sense to me.

Mrtraveler01: born_yesterday: Zarquon's Flat Tire: Isn't it kind of a given that if you move to a third world country to represent the United States it might be dangerous? It's like becoming a census worker in Appalachia.As long as you can depend on Congress to ensure that these facilities have the appropriate amount of funding for security, you should be fine.And that was a legitimate concern that should be addressed. Did the State Department take the threat seriously enough?But instead we got the Benghazi Truthers going "ERMAGHERD COVERUP!!!"
EvilEgg: 99% of the American public have forgotten everything about Benghazi, except maybe the name.It is virtually impossible to get people with any sense of reality to care at this point.
MFAWG: Rudy Giuliani
