Impossible. Obama personally phoned the SEALs, ordering them to stand down until his friends completed their Holy Mission for Allah or he would send their families to FEMA camps.

Will do. But really, there's a Benghazi drinking game?

This Benghazi thing is more and more looking like a pathetic attempt from the republicans to politicize the death of 4 people they otherwise couldn't give a shiat about.

Did it look like anything else from the start?  Right away, and still I think the proper response has been:  "Well, that sucked.  Perhaps a review of embassy security is in order."  And that's the end of that, as far as I'm concerned.

No it didn't. You're right, that's what it was obviously from the beginning. It's just even more blatant with each time it's mentioned and the louder they get.

Well then why weren't there any reinforcements sent? I mean, other than the CIA Global Response Staff reinforcements that left within half an hour of Ambassador Stevens raising an alarm, who managed to make it to the compound and retrieve Smith's body. And also the actual reinforcements sent from Tripoli in the downtime between the initial attack and the couple hour siege of the CIA annex, including Glen Doherty who was later killed in the fighting.

I mean other than everything that actually happened, why did nothing happen?

That just means the Republicans need to convene another hearing with testimony from a Keyboard Commando who, based on having had his home care aide read him most of Tom Clancy's novels, will prove without a shadow of a doubt that Obama prevented both Rambo AND Iron Man from going in to save everyone and bring home pie, or...even more impeachably...pies.

Questions about the independence of the review have become a recent focus of congressional investigations

The investigation is being investigated.  Surely, this will help Congress get to the bottom of...that chicken.

Issa to hold hearings on why there wasn't a stand down order to help him take down this evil president.
 
2013-09-20 09:01:55 AM
Look, I hate pulling out the authority card, but after almost two decades as a soldier in the marine core, I think I'm entitled here. Let me say this: there IS no "stand down order." We do not "stand down," that's a civvie term that you see in bad movies and nowhere else in the real world. If you have a bunch of marine soldiers ready to go and they're all lined up in the firing positions, the only way to stop them is for the sarge to stand up and holler as loud as he can, "Cease fire! Cease fire!" And he'll make a chopping motion against his chest. "Cease fire!" he'll bellow, his voice barely heard over the gunfire. And then his cry will echo up and down the line as others repeat and one by one our guns will fall silent. There will be one final burst, one last staccato, and then that's it. And after that it's usually over the top and take down the target. I've led many of those charges myself, bayonet in hand.

Stand down? Of course there was no "stand down." What happened is that Obama never put us there in the first place. Because if he had, there wouldn't *be* a Benghazi there anymore, I can promise you that. If we had known what was going on, orders wouldn't have mattered. We wouldn't have taken that place apart brick by brick. With our bare hands if we had to. So, no. We did not stand down -- we were never even deployed. Obama knew better than to tell us what was happening. He knew what would have happened had he unleashed the maelstrom. He knew better.

Sadly with truth and facts stonewalling this investigation, we'll probably never find out.

House Democrats concluded Thursday the U.S. military wasn't ordered to "stand down" during last year's attack on a diplomatic post in Benghazi

Okay, Farklibs, now I'm convinced.

These four brave Americans courageously lost their lives so that billion dollar media moguls could fill thousands of hours of programming on right wing propaganda media in between raking in revenue selling cash for gold, herbal energy boosting supplements and commemorative decorative plates to gullible rubes.

 Lest you doubt that they were truly heroes, ask yourself "Would I make that sacrifice"?
 
2013-09-20 09:45:43 AM
Look, I wont' rest until someone explains to me why Fartbama didn't apparate a squadron of Marines into Benghazi the second that we discovered that Libya was an unstable region and that there were some violent elements in the Middle East.

I have to tell you, when I learned that this man is sending our brave State Department folks to areas of the world that are dangerous it took my breath away. We have to start thinking about impeaching this Orwellian nightmare before its too late. My god, there wasn't even a Walmart in Benghazi!!

Really? After all these hearings from Issa this is just coming out now? You'd figure he would have gotten to the bottom of this thing by now. Perhaps Darrell needs to be replaced by somebody more competent who can really get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi. Lets just wipe the slate clean and start all over again.

Wake me up when we're invading Iraq/Iran over Benghazi.

You don't make plans for security in Libya because the Secretary of State wants to keep American involvement 'low key'.

You don't have security,  because you can take a chance with expendable State Dept. and CIA staffers.

Hunker down and try to ride out the attacks folks,  because no one is coming.   Over and out.

BunkoSquad: No, that can't be right, because Obama killed those guys for a reason


You're right, he did, but he didn't tell the military to "stand down". He actually hypnotized all of the strike team members and made them dress up like a bunch of A-rabs and carry out the attack, after which he wiped their memories and used his Glious Time Machine to put them back home before the attack happened.

Dr Who was the project coordinator.

President Obama is such a socialist fascist atheist Muslim appeaser that no formal "stand down" order was needed; his position as President was sufficient to establish such an order as being implied. Study it out.
