We just want the same answers that were asked during the Watergate coverup. What did the president know and when did he know it.

The same two questions, by the way, that brought President Nixon down.

You and I both know that if a republican president had seemed as out of the loop weeks after an attack on a foreign embassy as this president was with mixed messages coming out of this administration long after the State Department knew it was an organized terorist attack, the black out media would have had pitchforks and torches and stormed the castle crying for heads to roll long before now.

Admit it, Homer. You know it's true.

So, what you're saying is, that AC-130 Spectre gunship actually flew and blew away Al Qaeda while they were attacking the consulate and CIA facility?
What you're saying is, the Force Recon Marine unit in Sigonella was deployed into action and supported the Americans being attacked by Al Qaeda in Benghazi?
What you're saying is, there was real-time video of the attack being watched in Washington, and Obama somehow saw a different video than everyone else, right? Which led to the obvious lies coming out of Obama's mouth, and led to Susan Rice embarrassing the United States in front of the entire world by spouting obvious lies at the UN, right?
... you're a dupe. And not a very intelligent dupe, at that.
So you wanted a air gunship to fly over at night, in the dark, & kill terrorists but not civilians or the Libyans who came to help.

All this crap smacks of political games.
My God, you elected a man that lied to kill 4000 soldiers & you say nothing. You had no ground to play politics with this event.
The Ambassador was in a dangerous place doing dangerous work. You & your right whiner buddies do this brave man a disservice by being such lying POS about his sacrifice.
Talk about making sh** up? Your entire post is a fabrication of your small mind? You are a unionized thug, who sat in union meetings and shouted "yesir, let's git 'um". You fool no one except yourself Davey? You are so small minded, you and 'Obama Money' should be required to read your Dick & Jane book to the poll workers, before they hand you a ballot?

Picture a Republican president the day after a foreign embassy attack on the anniversary of 9/11 with four dead going to Los Vegas to fundraise and party.

In addition to the footage from the consulate cameras, the U.S. government is also poring over video taken from an overhead U.S. surveillance drone that arrived for the final hour of the night battle at the consulate compound and nearby annex.
Video from the compound’s cameras debunk the initial line from the Obama administration that there was a protest in front of the consulate on the night of the attacks, according to one of the U.S. intelligence officials who has seen the footage, and a senior Obama administration official familiar with what they show

Report: CIA Documents Support Rice's Account

CIA documents that will be the basis of testimony to the House Intelligence Committee this week support United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice's early account of the attacks the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, writes columnist David Ignatius in The Washington Post.

“Talking points” prepared by the CIA on Sept. 15, the same day that Rice taped three television appearances, support her description of the Sept. 11 attack as a reaction to Arab anger about an anti-Muslim video prepared in the United States, Ignatius reported on Saturday.

Citing CIA documents, he wrote that a senior intelligence official said the analysts’ judgment was based in part on monitoring of some of the Benghazi attackers, which showed they had been watching the Cairo protests live on television and talking about them before they assaulted the consulate.

His reporting supports Obama administration claims that early intelligence reports pointed to a connection between the attacks and a crude, anti-Islam video published online by an amateur U.S. filmmaker once convicted of bank fraud.

According to the CIA account,“The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.”

“We believe the timing of the attack was influenced by events in Cairo,” a senior official said, Ignatius reported, reaffirming the Cairo-Benghazi link. The officie said that judgment is repeated in a new report prepared this week for the House Intelligence Committee.

I hate to introduce facts into your diatribe, but you're so ignorant, I can't help but let my philanthropist alter ego out and help you.
Obama had a super majority in the Senate and a dominant majority in the House for the first two years he was in office.(no budget)
Today, harry Reid is obstructing all legislation coming from the House (no budget)
Obama's entire tenure is characterized by absolute fiscal insanity.(no budget)
In four years, Obama has submitted only 2 budgets to Congress.
The sum total of votes in Congress for the combined 2 budgets he submitted in the 4 years he was supposed to submit budgets is ZERO. That's NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH. Obama is so far removed from reality, he couldn't get even one, not one single vote from even the Congressional Black Caucus.
It's obvious every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is a nut.
So, since it's obvious every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot, why do they put him on the ballot to be president again?
I just love it when one of the pompous right whiners claim to have the facts &then tell a whopper of lie.

The exact same lie they were caught telling before over & over.

The Democrats dd NOT have a super majority for two years.

Are you really this uninformed?

They got their super majority in early July when Al Franken was sworn in.

That lasted until late August wen Ted Kennedy died.

That's about 6 weeks.

Then a Replacement for Kennedy was named a month later & the super majority returned.

In early Feb, that ended when Scott Brown was sworn in.

So calender wise, the Democrats held that super majority about 6 months.

Not two years.

What Happened in Benghazi

Though I am in no way a fan of President Obama’s foreign and security policies, the flailing that the Republican Party is engaging in at the moment to demonstrate some kind of cover-up in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack reveals a complete lack of understanding of how intelligence collection and analysis works. David Ignatius explores the subject in an op-ed,“CIA documents supported Susan Rice’s description of Benghazi attacks.”

Ignatius observes that intelligence is developed when something happens and that evidence is frequently “fragmentary and conflicting.” While there may be such a thing as incontrovertible facts relating to any incident, that solid information is something that frequently cannot be easily discerned. Ignatius notes that Republicans have been beating Obama over the head most recently with the assertion that there was a CIA Station Chief cable the day after the killing of the ambassador that indicated that the attack had been planned and organized by a militant group. But I would bet that there were at least 15 other reports that went out the same day that provided alternative scenarios. If you intercept a cell phone call in which someone is claiming credit for organizing an attack, is he speaking the truth or is he boasting and trying to take credit for some reason or other? If a source in a militia is claiming that he knows who ordered the attack, does he have an agenda that is driving his claim? All of that has to be sorted out, which takes time and cross checking. At the present time, it does appear that the “Innocence of Muslims” video did play a role in the attack and the contention that it was a fully-orchestrated al-Qaeda event seems unlikely.
