(CNN)   So now there were dozens of CIA operatives in the area of the Benghazi embassy attack, and of course that means we can pillory Obama for (1) doing nothing, (2) doing too much, and (3) not broadcasting everything the CIA does   (thelead.blogs.cnn.com) divider line 195

Since none of the options are "C" I'm going to have to go off the board and pick "C" all of the above.

Clearly those 35 people -- probably including tech and support staff -- should have charged into the riot, guns blazing. THAT would have certainly calmed things down and saved everyone.

35 CIA operatives were running a gun smuggling operation in Benghazi.  Yet, the attack on the embassy was blamed on a youtube video, the producer of which is still in jail.  Some of those 35 CIA operatives might have perished, but that has been covered up.  The ones that didn't have been dispersed all over the country and given new identities - including new names - so they can't be found.  They are also subjected to monthly polygraphs to prevent/ intimidate them from divulging the truth.

Nothing suspicious going on here at all.

SlothB77: 35 CIA operatives were running a gun smuggling operation in Benghazi.

So Benghazi was a legitimate target and not terrorism.  Got it.  I though you were all mad that Obama called it an act or terror instead of a terrorist act like that made and farking diference.

Yet, the attack on the embassy was blamed on a youtube video, the producer of which is still in jail.
Where did the attackers get their motivation? I had no clue that was determined.  Do you have a citation that the attackers weren't pissed off about the video.

Some of those 35 CIA operatives might have perished, but that has been covered up.
They covered up the evidence of your speculation about what could have happened?

The ones that didn't have been dispersed all over the country and given new identities - including new names - so they can't be found.
Except you know where they are right?

They are also subjected to monthly polygraphs to prevent/ intimidate them from divulging the truth.
The truth that the unidentified conspiracy is legit?

Dusk-You-n-Me: Now? This has been known for months.


The freshman teatards on Issa's Committee accidentally revealed the CIA black site in the first round of hearings.

Then, Petraeus told his girlfriend who blabbed all over Florida that the attack on the embassy was cover for an attack on the CIA site to free some insurgent leader who had recently been captured.

The producer is in jail because he violated his parole, period, paragraph. Perhaps he shouldn't have A) Broken the law in the first place that got him ON parole, and B) Abided by the terms of his parole.
 
2013-08-02 01:48:49 PM
I realize I'm slow. I never learned to read. But maybe if through interpretive dance, could it be explained to me how Benghazi was a scandal? I have no undying loyalty to Obama. If he did something wrong, I'm willing to learn. It just hasn't been adequately demonstrated to me as of yet and I'm sure that's simply an oversight.

Sounds like another Fast and Furious operation gone bad. Instead of selling drug cartels AR 15s that are used to kill border agents, the CIA sold terrorists mortars and RPGs which they used to assault a consulate....


Hold on, someone is at the door....

mrshowrules:

Where did the attackers get their motivation? Probably from their "spiritual leaders". Seriously, I do not give a crap about where they got it. I do give a crap that almost a year after the killing of Ambassador Stevens, the only person targeted by the administration was the scapegoat the jihadis picked off youtube.
Agreed, he shouldn't have broken the law in the first place. And he should have abided by his parole. But the only reason he is currently in jail is because the administration would rather believe jihadi propaganda than their own lying eyes.

http://www.factcheck.org/2012/10/benghazi-timeline/
There were no protesters at the Benghazi consulate prior to the attack, even though Obama and others repeatedly said the attackers joined an angry mob that had formed in opposition to the anti-Muslim film that had triggered protests in Egypt and elsewhere. The State Department disclosed this fact Oct. 9 - nearly a month after the attack.
 
2013-08-02 01:56:17 PM
Ahh... the old "unnamed sources allegedly may anonymously have done or said something"

 It's not news its CNN

For all the evidence provided in that derpfest  the dude could have said

" Anonymous reports from unnamed, anonymous individuals allegedly on the ground in some undisclosed location in what is believed to have been Libya have allegedly stated anonymously that the attack was led by a pack of 25 Bigfoots.

One individual speaking anonymously allegedly said "They were big and hairy. Their feet were huge"

 Please tune in to my show Tuesday at 10:30 where i will refuse to substantiate any of these fantastic yet factually devoid spurious headline grabbing claims .."

And your proof of this is what, exactly? The producer is in jail because he violated the terms of his parole. I am curious how you know that those 35 CIA operatives died if it was covered up. Do you have documents that are classified? I would also like to know how you know they were given new names based on some sketchy claim? How does a polygraph  prevent someone from telling the truth?

You realize it was the CIA who concluded that the attack was over the video, right? It wasn't something invented by Obama or Susan Rice - this has been known for a very, very long time now.

I wonder if their spiritual leaders mentioned the video.  Saying the video was not part of the motivation is presenting facts not in evidence.  I agree the motivation is irrelevant.  Thank you making my point for me.

Seriously, I do not give a crap about where they got it. I do give a crap that almost a year after the killing of Ambassador Stevens, the only person targeted by the administration was the scapegoat the jihadis picked off youtube.
Citation.  That guy is in prison for a pre-existing warrant do you have proof to the contrary?.

Agreed, he shouldn't have broken the law in the first place. And he should have abided by his parole. But the only reason he is currently in jail is because the administration would rather believe jihadi propaganda than their own lying eyes.
I guess if you are breaking parole, you should keep a lower profile.  Are you claiming someone ordered him arrested other than the local authorities?

That's old news and has nothing to do with my post.  Saying the attacks were not related to the protests is not equivalent to saying the video was not part of the motivation which is what I was responding to.  In any case you just said the motivation is irrelevant anyways so who cares.

Yet none of them are laying in a naked pile in Gitmo at this moment for alerting the enemy(everyone?) that it was a CIA base and therefor a viable target.  How much did Bachmann get paid for her pre-tip to the enemy(everyone) that caused the carnage?

/Including their cutting of funds from security and a loose accessory to murder because of that funding cuts.

They both outed stuff that isn't supposed to happen. For Manning it is war crimes that get covered up because we want to look like the good guys; for Snowden it's to show us that the Simpsons (and all other fictional portrayals of the NSA) joke about the endless analyst farm listening to every phone call (and android conductors), "We found one! Hey everybody, the government actually found someone we're looking for! Yeeeaaaahhhhh!" isn't so much a joke anymore. For the Republicans, they lost an election and are trying to use almost every controversy available and try to link that to the current president in order to remove the executive government in power and replace it with their own party. They aren't doing it for the greater good, they're doing it for their own self interest.

1)The video producer violated his probation to shoot the video, that gets you an automatic ticket back to jail to finish your sentence

2)Covert Operatives-like say , Valerie Plame, tend to get new identitites issued whenever they take on a new assignment that's why their real names are a very closely gaurded secret.

3)  EVERYONE with a high enough security clearance is subject to regular Polygraph exams that's WHY the clearance is called TS/SCI/Scope-Poly   TS(top Secret)/SCI (secret comparementalized information)/ Scope/Poly(graph)
