CBS is getting in the coverage of Benghzi-gate,with Fox now giving the same report.

"Sources: Key task force not convened during Benghazi consulate attack"

"CBS News has learned that during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group,(CSG).

"The CSG is the one group that's supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies," a high-ranking government official told CBS News. "They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon." ...

Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack....

Absent coordination from Counterterrorism Security Group, a senior US counterterrorism official says the response to the crisis became more confused. The official says the FBI received a call during the attack representing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and requesting agents be deployed. But he and his colleagues agreed the agents "would not make any difference without security and other enablers to get them in the country and synch their efforts with military and diplomatic efforts to maximize their success."

Another senior counter terrorism official says a hostage rescue team was alternately asked to get ready and then stand down throughout the night, as officials seemed unable to make up their minds.

A third potential responder from a counter-terror force stationed in Europe says components of AFICOM -- the military's Africa Command based in Stuttgart, Germany -- were working on course of action during the assault. But no plan was put to use....

"The response process was isolated at the most senior level," says an official referring to top officials in the executive branch. "My fellow counterterrorism professionals and I (were) not consulted."

The official says a protocol set forth in a classified presidential directive calls for the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) to be convened in the event of a possible terrorist attack. According to a public military document, the directive was designed to "synchronize the efforts of all the government agencies that have a role to play in the Global War on Terrorism."

The Administration also didn't call on the only interagency, on-call, short notice team poised to respond to terrorist incidents worldwide: the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST). FEST's seasoned experts leave within four hours of notification and can provide "the fastest assistance possible."

FEST Teams deployed immediately after al Qaeda bombings of US embassies in East Africa in 1998, and the USS Cole in 2000, but were not used for Benghazi, to the chagrin of some insiders. It's likely that the CSG task force, if contacted, would have recommended FEST aid.

"First a tactical response was needed," says a senior U.S. counterterrorism official, "and while that was being implemented, the holistic response could have been developed and deployed within hours" which could have allowed the FBI investigate safely on site well ahead of the "24 days it took." ...

A White House official told us that at the start of the attack, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta "looked at available options, and the ones we exercised had our military forces arrive in less than 24 hours, well ahead of timelines laid out in established policies." He also said a "small group of reinforcements" was sent from Tripoli to Benghazi, but declined to say how many or what time they arrived. The Pentagon moved a team of special operators from central Europe to Sigonella, Italy but gave no other details."

It pains me to say this but part of me wants Romney to win if only because I know you stubborn ass rightwingers will finally jump in and the economy will really start to roll.
I find it stunning that rightwingers refuse to compromise in any way shape or form. It's a bad sign for the overall health of the republic.
Boehner and Obama had negotiated a compromise....and then Obama backed out, demanding bigger tax increase....

Obama has a serious character flaw in that he is unwilling to negotiate directly with competitors, whether domestic or foreign...he is apparently afraid of or disdainful of any kind of personal contact....so he makes demands through the media and then pouts when the other side will not give in to his demands.....

Nice.
Hold the Koran in one hand, and the New Testament in the other hand.
How about you hand the book that teaches tolerance, love, peace, humility, equality, forgiveness, and everything else that makes life better, to a stranger,... and burn the one that teaches intolerance, women in sexual slavery, and killing anyone and everyone who has a different belief.

Which one do you burn?
The New Testament or the Koran?

<quoted text>I thought all you Repubs were for a smaller government? Here Obama wants to do away with at least 3 Federal departments and combine it into one smaller streamlined agency. For that you bitch? Hypocritical Bastard!!!!!!!!!!
Government spending, as a share of the economy, is over 24% during the Obama administration according to Congressional Budget Office. It's also elevated from the historical average of 20.7% over the past 40 years. He is taking the size of government to new levels and he's keeping it there.

The number of federal employees grew by 123,000, or 6.2%, under Obama, according to the White House's Office of Management and Budget. The federal government has been one of the few areas that's grown during the economic downturn. The private sector remains down 1.1 million jobs from the start of 2009, while state and local governments have shed 635,000 positions.

Large-scale regulation has picked up under Obama. There were 75 major regulations adopted in Obama's first two years in office, compared to 120 during Bush's entire term according to the Government Accountability Office statistics. Fiscal 2010 saw a record 43 rules adopted. Regulations already cost the private sector over $1.75 TRILLION Dollars a year. As of the end of May Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, has added over 12,000 pages of regulations to Obamacare.

The House Financial Services Committee reported in April that less than half of the required rule-making for the Dodd-Frank bill passed two years ago has been completed, but just the first 46% already comprises more than 5,300 pages of rules. The Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee reports it will take over 24 million man hours to comply with Dodd-Frank rules per year. It took only 20 million to build the Panama Canal! So, itís been over 2 years that Dodd-Frank passed and the regulation hasnít even been halfway completed. To normal people itís no big surprise that investors are reluctant to put capital to work in the US economy, and that growth has been stunted as a result.

Liberals donít care because they are rarely among the productive in society. They expect everyone else to make money, pay more taxes, and just give it to them because they are incapable of managing their lives. November must be a referendum on our European Socialist Evolver-in-Chief.

Yeah right__I get it and down here it's the same deal during event weeks for six to eight people.

But__those homes cannot be built back the way they were due to the modernization of building codes and that insurance companies will jack the sht out of the rates.

Case in point New Orleans, after Katrina where it's costing mega bucks to reconstruct the foundations.

Next year it'll be cheaper to come to Disney__probably the Cayman Islands too.

Bah, Republicans dug in their heels from day one. It won't be that Romney has better skills it will be that Democrats compromise more easily. Look how they got talked into Iraq, into the bank bailouts.

You'd have electrical power now if Obama didn't stuff a trillion dollars into the pockets of Democrat cronies instead of using Porkulus to upgrade the infrastructure, like burying the power lines, idiot.

Yup. Keep voting for thieves and leeches and egomaniacs. How's that working out for you with a trillion dollars siphoned off by Democrat cronies and your power lines still up in the air and being knocked down by a weak hurricane?
Keep eating that cold tuna fish in the can. Maybe you need to eat cold canned food for a few more weeks before you'll wake up to the fact that the Democrats are stealing everything from you.
But, look on the good side. You don't have to get out of bed to turn the lights out.)))))

Thank you for your post. Just out of curiosity I have been tracking your BULLMANURE. In the last 10 days+ you have posted just over 350 pieces of BULLMANURE. In the same period of time more than 500 from 65 different posters posts have been directed at you, laughing at you and mocking you.
I will say on an average day a couple of nuts agreed with your BULLMANURE, the numbers, 14 different posters on 26 occasions supported the BULLMANURE you spew.
"real dumb" even you are not so dumb that you missed the laughter and derision directed at you.
