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.

They needed to be re-washed because a crew of Obama's homeless slackers washed them poorly earlier. They were spotted with caked up crud. Typical lax slacker work ethic. Half-assed job, just like Obama's one-term presidency.


Gramps could care less how much Romney & Ryan lie or even their stances on the issues. He doesn't care that Ryan voted for this recession.

He just hates Obama so much he doesn't care. He hates Obama because he can't admit his dear Party f*cked this country under Bush.

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.
It's all rightwing bullsh!t Carol. Another fcking rightwing witch hunt.

My contention is that you are a lying POS. I contend they were not watching the attack real time because a drone was not directed there until hours afterwards.
Two questions one too many?

Okay DUH A Vey-

1. Why were special op/tactile forces pulled just weeks before the attack on the US Consulate, when OBVIOUS and apparent trouble was already festering (see attacks one and two prior iin the region-and the presence of bigguh black flags, as well as repeated requests for increased-NOT decreased security).

Answer even just the FIRST question please.

He who ignores anything of truth pertaining to Republican stupidity wants to shut down my 'pipe dream'???
... and this from Saul Alinsky:

"An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth -- truth to him is relative and changing; everything to him is relative and changing."

Let's talk about the Democrats in the White House watching video real-time and hanging the Americans fighting Al Qaeda in Benghazi out to dry.

I'm going to quote one of the Americans in the CIA compound fighting Al Qaeda:
"Where's the Spectre?"

Well, tell us where the Spectre was.(The "Spectre" is the AC-130 gunship that was deployed in Libya for this exact reason.)

And, tell us who told Susan Rice what to say all over the television networks and at the UN. It obviously wasn't Obama.
Who in the White House is giving the orders the president should be giving?
It's probably the same person who ordered the Americans fighting Al Qaeda in Benghazi be hung out to dry.

Yes we all know the election is getting closer: the right wing lies are showing up in Mitt's ads at an alarming pace.

So Bush did not take us into Iraq based on lies & kill how many soldiers?
