(Commentary Magazine)   Among the not-scandals of Bhengazi is how a CNN reporter can track down and interview one of the FBI's identified suspects, but neither Libya nor the FBI have bothered to do so. Oh, and the CIA had dozens of operatives in the area at the time   (commentarymagazine.com) divider line 137

That's some good policed work, lou.

Your blog sucks.

Sounds like Warlord General Farrah Aidid is up to his old tricks again.

It's a scandal.

I'm thinking guns to Syria. Shhhhhhhh.

Benghazi is an issue that should be further investigated.  Although I am not sure about this particular story, it appears that the American public is still not fully aware of the details surrounding this incident.  Given the death of an American ambassador among others on foreign soil the American people deserve to know the facts.

It's almost as if Glenn Beck was right about what was going on in Bhengazi and the Total Fark left was wrong.  This isn't the first time.  Its speaks volumes of the Total Fark left, considering Beck is nuts.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: It's a scandal.


The year Fox spent trying to make it a scandal prevented everyone from asking the actual, important question:


'What was the CIA doing in Benghazi that was SO important that they kept diplomatic cover in place for months after the British and French left due to the deteriorating security situation?'

Deep Contact: I'm thinking guns to Syria. Shhhhhhhh.


I'm starting to think unauthorized detention/interrogation facility may actually have some merit.

It's a good thing Hillary is running so we can hear about his for the next 4 years.
 
2013-08-05 09:41:38 AM
This is a made up scandal. There is no Benghazi.
 
2013-08-05 09:43:31 AM
Because when the FBI identifies a potential suspect, the first thing they do is rush out to interview them. Especially if they are in a foreign country where the suspect could just disappear at any time.
 
2013-08-05 09:43:41 AM
So Bengazi was a CIA operation so the Repubs knew they could just throw out wild accusations and the administration could not reply because they did not want to out the operation? That's a pretty impressive plan for them.

I agree, let's takes all the Americans who want to know more and send them to Libya. They can investigate all they want.
 
2013-08-05 09:45:05 AM
The CIA and Al-Qaeda are the same thing, let's accept it and move on.
 
2013-08-05 09:45:25 AM
I don't understand why everyone doesn't consult the CIA online agenda, where everything they plan to do is outlined in agonizing detail for all to see.  It's not like they ever operate in secret or anything.
 
2013-08-05 09:45:45 AM
I don't think it's fair to ask questions about what exactly Obama did from the moment he heard about the threat at the Libyan Embassy until the time he gave his speech at the Las Vegas fundraiser because the Obama Administration's policy is to give no information regarding the President's participation in highly classified military operations overseas.  Also, it would be unfair to ask about the Secretary of State's decisions and actions, for the same reasons.

Was Col. North involved?

So Hillary and Obama knew that these AMERICAN CITIZENS were in imminent danger, there were para-military CIA, Jason Boune types on the ground who WANTED TO HELP, but Hill-dawg and The One LET THEM DIE ANYWAY!

The fact that House Republicans cut security funding, and are blaming the inevitable result on the Democrats?

Pretty much all I need to know.

Pity the wingnuts didn't have quite so much outrage about all the embassy attacks during the Bush years...
or the 200+ Marines killed on Reagan's watch.

Neocons = chickenhawk losers.

Reagan was getting ready to go over there himself and kick some ass, but George H W knocked him out with a death grip that he learned in the CIA.  That's when they decided to send over Chuck Norris and his rocket motorcycle to settle the score.

Don't you know anything about history?

Popcorn Johnny: Wait, what?


OK, slowly for the short bus kids... The FBI has an active investigation. As part of that investigation they may or may not identify potential suspects. Since this is all taking place in a foreign country where those suspects may flee and disappear, the FBI has to move slowly and not alert those individuals to the fact that they are suspects until such time as they have gathered enough evidence to determine if that person should be approached and/or apprehended. It's called police work.

The FBI and CIA do a lot of sketchy stuff, but they must view the news media like some retarded cousin their mom is forcing them to bring along.

FBI Officer 1: So, we've been watching this guy for a while, we think he may have some connections higher up the food chain.
FBI Officer 2: OK, well keep surveillance, and we'll see if we get lucky and...
Media: HEY GUYS I FOUND THIS GUY WHO WAS MAYBE INVOLVED IN THIS THING AND I WENT TO TALK TO HIM AND TOLD HIM THAT YOU ALL WERE ON TO HIM AND HE BETTER WATCH OUT!
 
2013-08-05 09:55:39 AM
I'm confused by the CIA business model.

Step 1: Arm Al-Qaeda
Step 2: Close embassies due to well armed Al-Qaeda  threat
Step 3: ?
Step 4: Profit?

Because the raid to kill bin Laden was EXACTLY THE SAME as an attack on a CIA covert operation that's still being investigated. And the President and Secretary of State have EXACTLY the same amount of involvement in those two things.
 
2013-08-05 09:56:10 AM
Wow, putting "Benghazi" (or "Bhengazi") in a headline draws shaded-in-red Farkers to the conversation like flies to a pile of cowshiat.
 
2013-08-05 09:56:21 AM
So Jake Tapper has infiltrated Al Qaeda, the CIA and Moussad! That is so cool.
 
2013-08-05 09:59:09 AM
Listen subby, when the DNC, their media shills, and Farklibs say it is not a scandal, it is NOT a scandal. Get in line and comply citizen, or the IRS might decide to pay you a visit.
 
2013-08-05 09:59:51 AM
Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

The CIA? Keeping operations a secret?
That right there is proof positive of nefarious evildoings.

Wake up Sheeple!

Whaaaaa!!! Why won't everybody listen to us when we cry about scandal # 1231833813183 from this administration? Don't they realize that EVERYTHING Obama does is a scandal? Have they forgotten the arugula? The fancy mustard? The $200 billion vacations? WHY WON'T YOU LISTEN??????

Yea, letting an ambasador die without even trying to send help is just like fancy mustard

/this is why you should not huff paint

Yeah, that's exactly what happened, they let him die. They should have sent in that imaginary seal team that could magically get there in an hour from 500 miles away.
 
2013-08-05 10:15:41 AM
So what I'm hearing is that anyone that thinks this was a clusterfark is a partisan hack and we should go back to lapping Obama's nuts.

Not its called hiring absolute morons and allowing them to run something than a floor buffer.  The internal Agency in the State Department responsible for security was grossly mismanaged as per the Pickering report.  They also got into a slap fight w/ the CIA which resulted in Stevens death and subsequent bungled message after the fact.
 
2013-08-05 10:20:07 AM
GOP, just stfu already.

You want to get people on your side? Stop making Benghazi a scandal. Rally against NSA surveillance. Stop being crazy about being pro life. No one cares about Benghazi
 
2013-08-05 10:20:58 AM
So the point of the blog is that there must be a scandal because there is a coverup?

"We dont know whats going on, so it must be really bad"

Why wont President Obama let Republicans impeach him on vague assumptions and rumors?

WTF is that guys problem???

/ Just keep outing CIA operatives Repubs.
// Theres no way that will come back to bite you in the ass...
/// I did it all for the slashies!
 
2013-08-05 10:22:37 AM
So Obama had deployed a platoon of CIA agents to Benghazi. Looks like it had more security than most places, and now THAT was wrong, too.

Imagine that.

The Arab Spring was orchestrated by the US and Saudi Arabia inteliigence services to protect the dollar and the oil trade by installing pro Sunni governments like the Muslim Bortherhood.

The majority of the lefty Farkers are willfully ignorant. Mostly non-voters too so mostly irrelevant.

And phony scandals ...you just keep believing what MSNBC tells you to believe, and not voting.

No shiat, on this. The Neo-cons are not just chickenhawk losers but ridiculously naive ones at that. They simply don't understand the ground game in the Middle East/North Africa save in terms of 1930s black and white serials. Remember, these are the same imbeciles that had no problems borking intelligence during the Bush years because they didn't want to hear what it had to say.

Don't you know? Nothing in the world happens without the U.S. being behind it. Nothing. Every event virtually since the founding are the machinations of the U.S. The world has been bent to the will of the United States.

And we've lost every war we've fought in - or, rather, we never WON any war. Someone else won it for us. Or we outright lost. We are simultaneously the most powerful, successful, Machiavellian force the world has ever had the misfortune to know, and the most incompetent, bumbling, and ineffective band of white trash ever to slide forth from the muds of antiquity.

Or maybe once they're identified as a suspect, they have the local police take them into custody. Even better, have the CIA nab them.


Or maybe sometimes you want to watch and see who he calls and who he visits before doing that.
 
2013-08-05 10:40:54 AM
Once you get comfortable outing a CIA operative the next logical step is to out CIA operations.

All for the good of the country, naturally.
 
2013-08-05 10:41:22 AM
Another few years, another couple of dozen hearings, and a few million more dollars, and we should have something concrete on Benghazi.
