The ambassador was killed 30 minutes after the President was briefed. How the hell is he supposed to prep a team and get them there and engaged in 30 minutes?

It's kind of depressing that we elected such a Boy Scout like Obama that this is the most dirt they can pin to the guy. It's just so boring and lame. I want him doing lines of coke off Beyonce's ass in the Lincoln bedroom, or at the very least tweeting pictures of his balls on cherished American historical artifacts. That'd be a fun scandal, Obama tea bagging the Betsy Ross flag.

timujin: Can one of the "this is a SCANDAL!!!" folks tell me what they think would have been accomplished by this?  Do you armchair generals really think that the State Dept. dude's decision was countermanded by the military on a whim?  Or, just maybe, they looked at the situation and realized sending in four extra guys was pointless and would only lead to another "Blackhawk Down" scenario.


I think this is the same as the birther crew, where every week there was some new evidence that Obama was born on Tatooine to jawas, and their little circle-jerk of sleuths would shout "AHA! Now we have the evidence that will lead to him being impeached and Sarah Palin being President and no black people in the whitehouse ever again ever", only to be crushed when they find that once again no one cares and everyone thinks they're insane.

The other day, I was talking to someone about Jeff Hanneman. My friend asked "Remember when people were screaming about Slayer putting in Satanic backwards messages? Was any of that true?"

Waldo Pepper: 21-7-b: This is how it works waldo


Your subjective "feeling" needs objective support. Your subjective opinion, whoever you are and whatever your opinion is, ought to be founded upon objective facts and you ought to be able to convey those facts to others, just as they can convey the facts that inform their opinions to you. This is how discussion and negotiation works. It's not rocket science. Just stating "it's my opinion" over and over whilst avoiding drawing on objective reality in favor of "feeling" isn't good enough

some excellent points but have you never had one of those "man I got a bad feeling about this and I just can't put my finger on why" and you were 100% correct moments?

my son's freshman year in college I was lucky enough to win a trip to a major event with work and he came with me. at one of the company functions I introduced him to our director of advertising (my son was majoring in mass communication at the time) and they talked a few minutes about courses and advertising. this guy gave some good advise and we walked away my son goes "that guys a jerk" I asked why and couldn't put his finger on why and nothing the guy said was the reason. that guy is one of the biggest douches in the company. gut feeling without objective support.

This from the people who constantly prattle on about how Republicans put 'party before country'. As always you will know liberals by what they accuse others of.

Hannity on his radio show this afternoon apparently had on someone who claimed to be the drone operator from the night of the consulate attacks giving his side of the story.  I thought it was a parody bit when I turned it on, seriously.  The guy was parroting every right-wing talking point, even going to the point of saying "we knew RIGHT THEN it wasn't a normal demonstration!" when asked if he thought it was a cover-up.  The guy talked about breaking a NDA and getting in trouble by talking on air.  I seriously thought I'd hear "BABABOOEY!" any minute.. but sadly, didn't.

Please enlighten us the difference it makes.  If we knew the exact motivation for the attacks it would do what exactly?

Well, in deciding how to respond to an attack on the compound, you would think it important for the administration to know the nature of the attack.  Hillary suggested two alternatives: (1) a protest or (2) guys out for a walk at night who decided to kill Americans.  If that was the threat assessment, that might explain why the Obama administration gave the stand down order.  Maybe they did not feel that a military response was necessary because the whole thing could have just been some guys out for a walk.


OK we got 12 to 20 atackers with small arms and motars and RPGs. Surrounding the compound and firing. OK let's deploy a seal team for standard counter manuevers.....Oh wait, you say the attackers are motivated by thier hatred of our freedoms.....Scrap that, let's parachute in Andy Dick, 2000 liters of hot sauce and a cactus.

randomjsa: It was a scandal before unless you think it's a-ok for Obama to tell bald faced lies in order to cover his rear before the election.


Citation needed. Again.

Which most liberals do.

C-  generic bullshiat generalization. You can do better young man.

They would rather have Obama, whose incompetence led to Benghazi

Because Barack Hussein Obango personally cut the State Department security budget, and ordered the staff of the Benghazi Consulate to abandon their posts and sit in the yard and chant Kumbaya, with pork chops around their necks. C+ no originality

, and who tried to cover it up and lie about it than face the possibility of him not getting reelected.

Pulled out of ass, D-.

Everything is justified so long as liberals keep the White House. Republicans can demonstrate, somehow, that Obango is a threat to Our Way Of Life.

This from the people who constantly prattle on about how Republicans put 'party before country'. As always you will know liberals by what they accuse others of.

Democrats asked for Republicans to stop the constant "Let's vote to repeal ObamaCare" votes, so this is what they have shifted to. Today. I'm sure when this mud fails to stick after 6 months or so, they'll go back to voting ObamaCare out again.

As we've been over, if they'd shown up as soon as they could have, they would have arrived just in time to be killed by mortar fire.

And then Republicans would be talking about how Obama didn't just sit and watch Americans die, he ORDERED them to die.

And this is why whistle blowers were threatened to keep them silent. Riiight.

Face it Dems, new boss is the same as the old boss when it comes to transparency, taking away our civil rights, and selling us out to big business. This is all you will ever get from a candidate with a D or an R next to his or her name.

Yep, expanding gun rights is taking away our rights. No one being able to explain how Benghazi is a scandal and what the lies were is Benghazi is a scandal and lies. Helping small businesses is selling us out to big business.

And both sides are bad so vote Republican.

You do know there are civil rights outside of gun rights, don't you? This is the president who you people claimed was going to restore those rights not take even more of them away. He was going to end torture and instead he outsourced it. He was going to close Gitmo and end that evil indefinite detention. This is a myth exposed even by very left leaning sources. Obama not only planned to keep the indefinite detention in place, he signed a bill "reluctantly" that expanded it to include US citizens. If you want to know how he sold us out to big business look at how he's kept the same old crew running the fed. Look at how his healthcare bill did nothing to ease the actual cost of healthcare. He forced us to buy it and didn't do anything to keep the insurance companies from jacking up the pric ...

One should wonder what the outcome of the 2012 would have been had Obama came out and said this was a terrorist attack and never tried to misdirect the American public, the world and the media with the video farce.  Got to give Obama credit he has some great PR handlers.

Are you saying that was the scandal? How does this look:

Benghazi is a scandal because Obama felt that telling the public that it was an act of terror would undermine his ability to defeat Romney and so they came up with "the big lie": tell the media it was the video that caused other riots and attacks on the same day. He and his advisors felt so because there is no indication in recent memory that terrorist attacks against US citizens could help a politician in the polls.

Sound about right? Can this be the official "scandal" now?


In order to not look weak, they covered up an attack by a group of trained, experienced, well-armed terrorists and instead blamed on a group of random yokels without a plan or any training, because that looks...not weak.

It makes about as much as sense as covering up the fact you got your ass kicked by an Army Ranger in a bar fight, by telling everybody you were actually beaten up by a surly Girl Scout, in order to not look like a pussy.

In fairness, the whistleblowers claim to have been threatened. It's certainly possible that they have been, and that those threats are coming because they have damning information which hasn't been made public.

It's also possible that they're simply talking out of their asses, have no actual new information, and have misinterpreted warnings about the possible deleterious effects of slandering their bosses* as "threats".

*Publicly spreading untrue information about your superiors in an attempt to damage their reputations is generally a fireable offense, I would think.

/Just to be clear, I have no idea which of those two scenarios is the truth, just pointing out that it could be very easy for the whistleblowers to misinterpret genuine advice as a threat.

He and his advisors felt so because there is no indication in recent memory that terrorist attacks against US citizens could help a politician in the polls.

Sound about right? Can this be the official "scandal" now?

Yeah, I can't imagine it would be a significantly different outcome than calling it "an act of terror."

Obama never directly called the attack "an act of terror" but it's okay please continue believing that Obama is different from every other politician on the planet and only cares for the people and would never put his legacy first.

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.  Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America.  We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act.  And make no mistake, justice will be done.


But...      but...       but, that's not DIRECT, see? Because, you know, just because he was talking ABOUT Benghazi earlier doesn't mean that the acts of terror he's referencing there are actually Benghazi!! DERP!!

People like you keep asking this question, and when the answer is presented to you, you just choose to ignore it.  It was this administration's motive to claim, at the height of a political campaign in which Obama was taking credit for the fall of al Qaeda, that the death of a U.S. ambassador was down to spontaneous outrage over a video, rather than pre-planned terrorism.

Continue to ignore it and your motive is transparent as well.

tenpoundsofcheese: Zeppelininthesky: Whodat: vygramul: dr_blasto: Whodat: I think that this will pan out like Watergate. It wasn't the actual event that was the problem but rather the obfuscation and cover up that will be the real issue. Obvious difference being that nobody died in Watergate.

The administration has had a long time to get out in front of this issue and they have done nothing but fuel the flames.

Point to actual obfuscation and the actual cover up.

More importantly, point to the motive. Nixon's campaign staff committed a crime, and Nixon covered it up. Obama's, I mean, someone committed a crime, and, well, Obama, er, well, you see... IT'S A SCANDAL, DAMMIT! WHY WON'T YOU PEOPLE LISTEN TO ME!?! CAN'T YOU SEE HOW BLACK HE IS!?!

The motive is the cover up or dismissal of a failure to protect the embassy. I don't think that anyone other than some nutters are attempting to say that they allowed the embassy to be overrun for a nefarious intent.
Also, do you know why Nixon's staff were bugging the Dem's office? Hint: It wasn't to get campaign strategy.
BTW Weak-assed attempt to play the race card. I guess when all you have is a hammer (or in this case the tattered remains of the race card) everything looks like a nail.

Failure that the GOP caused by withholding funds to the embassy security.

oh not this shiat again.
The failure was not spending money on security in places where, oh I don't know, there is a hotbed of terrorist activity and threats.
Spending all that money on the embassy in Norway and Geneva but not in Benghazi was not good.

They found money to give Susan Rice 4-5 bodyguards but couldn't find money for Ambassador Stevens...at least on the anniversary of 9/11?


If Stevens was actually in the Embassy where he belonged, sure.  Stevens willfully and willingly took additional risk.  Sometimes, when you take risks, bad things happen.  That's why they're called risks.

Now, if I wasn't a child I'd probably would have anticipated the inevitable...

The balloon floated out of grasp!

I ran inside where my father was watching baseball on tv. I begged him to get his ladder, call the fire dept... anything. He said he was sorry but that it was long past the point of no return, there was nothing I could do, the damage was done and there was nothing anyone could do about it.

Benghazi was our balloon. This shiat is to be expected when you're playing a game of this nature.

The timing isn't going to work out for the Republicans. They can spend the next few years beating this dead horse, and by 2016 they'll just look foolish and nobody but the True Believers will care. Or they can wait until 2016 and use it for an October surprise, when they'll just look foolish and nobody but the True Believers will care. Or, you know, they could do both.


I think they are at that point. The True Believers are honestly the only ones who care, and everyone else are just pointing and laughing.

If you think about it, it's really Obama's fault for acting in such a way that there's no legitimate "scandal" argument to be made. If only he'd bungled things to the point where he was actually as bad as Bush - then people could go around smugly hating both sides (or claiming to, anyway) without looking like idiots.

Which most liberals do. They would rather have Obama, whose incompetence led to Benghazi, and who tried to cover it up and lie about it than face the possibility of him not getting reelected. Everything is justified so long as liberals keep the White House.

This from the people who constantly prattle on about how Republicans put 'party before country'. As always you will know liberals by what they accuse others of.


So the Republicans, who voted in favor of cutting security at embassies before the attacks, are blameless then? Tell me another tale of your courageous, patriot heroes!

Your subjective "feeling" needs objective support. Your subjective opinion, whoever you are and whatever your opinion is, ought to be founded upon objective facts and you ought to be able to convey those facts to others, just as they can convey the facts that inform their opinions to you. This is how discussion and negotiation works. It's not rocket science. Just stating "it's my opinion" over and over whilst avoiding drawing on objective reality in favor of "feeling" isn't good enough

some excellent points but have you never had one of those "man I got a bad feeling about this and I just can't put my finger on why" and you were 100% correct moments?

my son's freshman year in college I was lucky enough to win a trip to a major event with work and he came with me. at one of the company functions I introduced him to our director of advertising (my son was majoring in mass communication at the time) and they talked a few minutes about courses and advertising. this guy gave some good advise and we walked away my son goes "that guys a jerk" I asked why and couldn't put his finger on why and nothing the guy said was the reason. that guy is one of the biggest douches in the company. gut feeling without objective support.

The only real scandal over Benghazi is how the GOP have tried politicize the deaths of 4 Americans for purely partisan purposes.

It's not their first manufactured outrage by far but it is the biggest and the most egregious to date.

But it got the guy who made the video arrested!

/Never mind that he VIOLATED HIS F*CKING PAROLE!

jst3p: Skarekrough: Honestly, you're not endearing yourselves to the voters. Even if you manage to pin this on the administration no one will wake up in the morning and care.

Exactly, the only ones who think this is a scandal are the people who weren't ever going to vote for them anyway. To those who support Obama this will never be anything other than a very tragic and sad incident. I can't imagine anyone believing Obama willing hung them out to dry and registering GoP over this.


A large part of the problem is that they've generated so much noise to signal already that even if they manage to get something out of it, it's already too late.  The chance was lost long ago.

They could prove it and it wouldn't matter.

And that makes for a nice hobby.  I know plenty of history buffs that think of the JFK assassination in the same way folks think of baseball; it's their past time and keeps them busy.  But nothing is going to come from it no matter what the results are.

So, you either try and reason with them or poke the hell out of their cage and enjoy the show.

Come on.....this is the best free entertainment were going to get until 2016 when they bring in a new chicken!

Lionel Mandrake: I'm just going to pop into this thread from time to time to see if anyone's actually managed to clarify what the scandal is.  I don't see anything...did I miss it?  I'm only scanning, but I just see the same ol' non-scandalous wharrgarbl

How can I be outraged if I don't know what to be outraged about??


I think it has something to do with the "fact" that Obama didn't send Superman at the speed if light to Benghazi to stop the violence before Americans were killed.  He would have had to send Superman, because there was no one else closer who could have gotten there from the time Obama was told about the attacks and the time our people died.  but I could be wrong.

Type_Hard: I honestly haven't been following all the Benghazi stories/threads that closely, and I suppose you could accuse me of deflecting, but in all these hearings/reports/etc, has anyone, GOP or otherwise, actually proposed any reforms to prevent something like this from occurring again?

/when I hear things like "it's all about 4 American lives" and see nothing about fixing the problem, the sentement doesn't ring as very genuine


I think the proposal boils down to "get the n***** out of the White House."

Waldo Pepper: 21-7-b: Waldo Pepper: 21-7-b: Waldo Pepper: GTATL: Ah, it seems even the trolls have a limit. No word on what the scandal is, how shocking.

not sure if there is a scandal or not but something is fishy with the way it all was handled and being that it happened before the election. it is worth checking into either to clear up or uncover whichever is the truth.

I for one do get tired of every freaking little thing being a right or left issue instead of what is best for America. 

sure it is fine to argue, troll, discuss on fark but these idiots that we all pay are screwing with our lives and our kids future.

Oh for god's sake, shut up

No I won't shut up, I have the right to my opinion and the right to annoy everyone here with it. so deal with it.

Substantiate your opinion or shut up. That's how it works. Some people are slower than others and don't get it, but that is how it is

is that written somewhere?  I will never shut up.  I have not seen a single person here who can 100% substantiate with fact an opinion on this subject as the all the facts have yet to be presented and the truth has been screwed up by both sides. so all that is left is our opinions. 

here is what Obama said on the 12th of Sept. 
"We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others. "

This is a foreshadow of blaming it on the video. Do i know his motives for Hillary and Him talking about the video as much as they did, No but my gut tells me there is something fishy. And for all you science geeks on here, there appears to be research that proves "gut feelings" are often right

Yeah, you will shut up. You're just a slow learner

You see, we've seen thousands and thousands of trolls. You're nothing special. You try to be controversial then try your little dance in the hope you won' t get pinned down - same as all the rest. It's old hat and a quick google reveals you are really shiat at it.

Can't we just give Limbaugh, Savage, Beck, etc. a Benghazi Channel and call it good?
