Benghazi, it's only many times worse than the Valarie Plame case and at the very least is a clear cut example of gross negligence on the part of this administration even if absolutely everything the administration says is true.

But when you consider the fact that they lied about it and tried to cover it up purely and simply because the election was only 7 weeks away? That's just damning. That's this administration basically saying that the death of an American ambassador on its watch and thanks to its own ineptness is not as important as winning. The funny thing here is that all of the people running around trying to play down Benghazi? They don't care. Even if everything the conservatives say about Benghazi is true? Liberals don't care. All that matters is keeping their guy in the White House.

Now get back to saying how Republicans put 'party before country'.

If there are whistleblowers, let's hear them.  I'm all for transparency in government.  I'm pretty sure that there will be nothing beyond, possibly, "The administration might have handled it somewhat better but there was certainly no criminal coverup."  Along with, "That's not too surprising, considering that Republicans voted to cut funding for diplomatic security in spite of warnings not to do so."

Now, I wonder what Fox News' opinion was of "whistleblowers" in 2003-2006?  Maybe slightly different?  Maybe they used a different word?

Amazing how liberals are so determined to sweep this under the rug for their dear leader.

At a minimum it is a fact the administration lied intentionally to the public. Al Qaeda was linked to the attacks on sept 11 by the counter intelligence department. The group claimed credit. Clinton told congress there were no terrorist links until the 17th after susan rices appearances. She lied.

Second. At the minimum the states own ARB found a failing at the top levels of the state department, yet nobodt held accountable. The ARB is now being investigated.

To pretend there is nothing scandalous in benhazi is beyond partisan idiocy

The state department officials said funding had zero to do with it. The ARB said the same. Funding was up 20% from 2009. Stop the stupid and ignorant talking points. It is a debunked excuse.

I remember the 2008 campaign when Hillary put out an add stating SHE would be ready at 3AM when the crisis phone call came in needing an immediate decision.  Yeah, about that...  It seems that when this call came in, both her and BOB just turned over and went back to sleep.

For Hillary she was just trying to get as much beauty sleep as she could, and I can't argue with that.

For BOB, I understand it was a big party he had at the White House and he had an early tee time.

and for christ's sake, it's not as if we can't find another Ambassador.

This has been investigated to death and each time, nothing is found. Why should anyone assume this is different? From a totally neutral POV, how could you blame someone for being skeptical that anything will be proven THIS time? How does that make you a "liberal" trying to "sweep it under the rug"?

AQ also claimed credit for the 747 crash at Bagram.  They claim credit for someone stealing my yogurt out of the fridge at work, even though I had specifically put my name on it.

I remember when Fox News accused Obama of watching Americans die in Benghazi on real-time video. That'll be confirmed today right?

2013-05-08 09:43:39 AM
From what I've seen, these new witnesses are butt hurt over not being personally consulted during the aftermath of the attacks. Many experts were consulted and there were many options over who to consult. These experts are saying "We were the subject matters and WE weren't consulted."

How exactly is going on a Sunday morning talk show to speak specifically about the attacks an attempt to deflect attention from the attacks?
