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!!!!!!!!!!

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.....

Homer may know people like this.....

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?
