A fubar, yes.

Its disgraceful and the ONLY THING GOING ON HERE IS GOP HATRED FOR OBAMA AND TRYING TO SLOW THE INEVITABLE STEAM ROLLING THEY ARE GONNA GET FROM HILLARY..................

Finally the media is starting to see this as the huge coverup it is.

http://news.yahoo.com/dam-bursts-ben...111500947.html

Thanks to a bombshell report from ABC News, GOP accusations that the White House politicized a tragedy no longer seem so unsubstantiated


http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics...or-references/

White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department. The edits included requests from the State Department that references to the Al Qaeda-affiliated group Ansar al-Sharia be deleted as well references to CIA warnings about terrorist threats in Benghazi in the months preceding the attack.



OK so the truth is out there. Considering no one died in Watergate this is actually worst then what brought down Nixon.

Don't give us your bull**** fake disgust. You and Beavis are both shameless. thousands of Americans die in Iraq because of an unjust war based on false evidence. When someone brings up investigations and war crimes on Bush, Beavis doesn't just say "meh", he laughs. You say "hey, we got rid of Saddam", completely missing the point that we can't just go into another country and remove its leader, especially if we go in basing it on something else. If Bush had said "we're going into Iraq to remove Saddam from power" that would have been one thing...but he didn't, because if he had, there's no way in hell he would have gotten authorization to do so.

It was ALL a lie. Thousands died. Thousands of Americans, many of them themselves questioning WTF we were doing there in the first place. But no. America suffers a tragic attack on an embassy and all of the sudden you're weeping your bleeding heart eyes out. Demand an investigation! Rattle the sabres! Do what you must, but do NOT give us this weak, fake, mocking "horror" you're pretending to have.

So holy cow the truth is they asked for more security. Didn't get it. They asked for help while being attacked. They didn't get any. Then they had Susan Rice lie because most likely Hilliary was like I am not reading that. That would be too good of a commercial against me when i run for pres. Obama ain't reading it because he also knew it was a lie. So they sent Rice out there and it really damaged her career.

How liberals can now have mainstream media covering it and still call it a non story is like watching a monty python movie.

This is going to be good!

Defense?

I have already said there needs to be an investigation.

I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy in your "outrage".

What's your response to that, you coward?

The only hypocrisy is that you will still vote for Hilliary Clinton. But at least you have your "courage" brave one.

The fact you cannot see your own is the true travesty here.

American lives only mean something to you when they serve your purposes.

And I'm hoping Clinton doesn't run, btw. Not because of Benghazi, but because she'll be 70. If she does run I am looking forward to seeing if the GOP has the sack to run Christie against her. I've already been pretty outspoken on how interested I am to see Christie as a presidential candidate, and if his anti-partisanship stance is real or staged. You, on the other hand, love partisanship, as evidenced by your love/hate relationship with the truth.

The “whistleblowers” at today’s House Oversight Committee hearing on what really happened in Benghazi, Libya last September were supposed to break the dam that would lead to President Obama’s eventual downfall, in the eyes of conservatives. Instead, these witness actually served to debunk several theories that the right-wing has pushed on Benghazi, leaving the hearing a fizzle for the GOP:

1. F-16s could have been sent to Benghazi


Part of the prevailing theory surrounding the events the night of the Benghazi attacks is that the Obama administration did not do enough militarily to respond to the crisis. Gregory Hicks — a Foreign Service Officer and the former Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya — claimed during his pre-hearing testimony that fighter jets could have been flown over Benghazi, preventing the second wave of the attack from occurring.

Ranking Member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) questioned that statement, asking Hicks whether he disagreed with Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff Gen Martin Dempsey’s assessment that no air assets were in range the night of the attack. Hicks didn’t disagree, saying he was “speaking from [his] perspective” and what “veteran Libyan revolutionaries” told him, rather than Pentagon assessments.

2. Hillary Clinton signed cables denying additional security to Benghazi


House Republicans came to the conclusion in their interim report on Benghazi that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied to them about what she knew and when during her testimony this January. This includes her statement that at no time was she aware of requests for additional security at the diplomatic facility in Benghazi prior to the attack.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) used her time to take issue with this claim, asking all three witnesses about standard protocol for cables leaving the State Department. All three agreed with Maloney, that the Secretary of State’s name is placed at the bottom of all outgoing cables and telegrams from Foggy Bottom, whether the Secretary has viewed them or not, shooting down the GOP claim.

3. A Special Forces Team that could have saved lives was told to stand down


One of the most shocking reveals in the lead-up to today’s hearing was that a team of Special Forces in Tripoli were told not to deploy to Benghazi during the attack. That decision has led to an uproar on the right, including claims of dereliction of duty towards Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey for not taking actions that could have saved lives.

During questioning, Hicks confirmed that the team was ready to be deployed — not to join the fighting at the CIA annex — but “to secure the airport for the withdrawal of our personnel from Benghazi after the mortar attack.” Hicks also confirmed that it was the second such team to be readied for deployment, with the first having proceeded to Benghazi earlier. Despite the second team not deploying, the staff was all evacuated first to Tripoli, then to Germany, within 18 hours of the attack taking place.

4. The State Department’s Accountability Review Board isn’t legitimate


Republicans have been attacking the State Department’s official in-house review of the shortcomings seen before, during, and after the assault in Benghazi. That criticism prompted House Republicans to write their own report. When asked point blank about the recommendations of the Board, however, the witnesses didn’t cooperate with the GOP narrative. “Absolutely,” Eric Nordstrom, the Regional Security Officer for Libya prior to the assault in Benghazi, answered when asked if he believes implementing the recommendations would improve security. “I had an opportunity to review that along with other two committee reports. I think taken altogether, they’re fairly comprehensive and reasonable.” Hicks, when questioned, said that while he had some issues with the process by which the Board gathered its information, he demurred on criticizing the report itself.

Partisan politics, cover up or both?

State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland raised specific objections to this paragraph drafted by the CIA in its earlier versions of the talking points:

“The Agency has produced numerous pieces on the threat of extremists linked to al-Qa’ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya. These noted that, since April, there have been at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants, including the June attack against the British Ambassador’s convoy. We cannot rule out the individuals has previously surveilled the U.S. facilities, also contributing to the efficacy of the attacks.”

In an email to officials at the White House and the intelligence agencies, State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland took issue with including that information because it “could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that either? Concerned …”
The paragraph was entirely deleted.

Wow! You're right. He was indicted for GTA three times, but only convicted on an illegal gun charge. By GOP terms, that's a hero.

There's only one reason for this whole Benghazi outrage bull****: To smear Hillary Clinton in preparation for 2016. Period.

I wouldn't put it past a couple of other top Dems to "leak" more info about this crime that damages Hillary as she is not the only person who aspires to sit in the oval office.....perhaps a guy like Biden or Kerry allows some info out in order to hurt her chances in 2016.

I think both of them have culpability in the deaths of these 4 men, as Hillary can't order a stand down of US troops or tell them to engage.....that authority lies with Barack Hussein Obama
