People died, then Obama lied
"Rice contradicted Libyan President Mohammed Magariaf, who said the same day that "this was an attack by Islamic extremists, possibly with terrorist links," Hicks said. "He describes what happens. He tells the truth of what happened. And so, you know, Ambassador Rice says what she says, contradicting what the president of Libya says from Benghazi."
This violated "a cardinal rule of diplomacy that we learn in our orientation class, and that rule is, never inadvertently insult your interlocutor. The net impact of what has transpired is, the spokesperson of the most powerful country in the world has basically said that the president of Libya is either a liar or doesn't know what he's talking about. The impact of that is immeasurable. Magariaf has just lost face in front of not only his own people but the world. And, you know, my jaw hit the floor as I watched this. I've never been ‑‑ I have been a professional diplomat for 22 years. I have never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career, as on that day."

I'd say Eman is an idiot but he would make the quotation marks excuse.

There was no lie from the White House.

Yep, lets make each & every foreign policy decision based on what others tell us.

9/11/Iraq War… Who’s at fault Clinton/ Bush? Let’s connect the Dots, One, If Clinton had taken out’ Osama’ who was the Master Mind behind 9/11 neither 9/11 nor the Iraq war would have Happen!! The next question what was the Trigger that Led the US to invade Iraq…9/11 the evidence is Clear…It’s Clinton Fault!!
I see you need things broken down in layman's terms. If I told you (you being a bank manager) that you bank would be robbed in the near future, by a certain group of people, & you do nothing to secure yourself against the robbery, who's fault is it? You blame Clinton for not catching a guy, that Bush couldn't catch in 8yrs. Where's the logic? If republicans weren't wasting tax payers money on Clinton's impeachment, & him having to defend & protect his marriage, he just might have caught him. Like you said he caught all the persons involved in the 1993 attack in the WTC in no time. Look up the Bush's & the Bin Laden's ties/business relationships. Daddy Bush & the Bin Laden family were even at a charity event the morning of 9/11, but I guess those ties are irrelevant because Clinton didn't catch Bin Laden, right? If he was so wanted, Bush should be arrested & charged with aiding & abedding an international fugitive, shot in the face , & thrown to the sharks like his partner, Bin Laden! You really have to be incompetent, or a culprit to botch/fail a mission in which, you were given the blueprint of. I'll allow you to pick which one you leader Bush was!

The results of Clinton's policies were devastating for Muslim Bosniak people and Chechnya. Just in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina, over 10,000 Bosnian Muslim (Bosniak) people were killed, including 1,500 children - by the Serb Army who kept the defenseless city under siege, that inflamed Muslim's worldwide...
http://srebrenica-genocide.blogspot.com/2008/...
Tens of Thousands of Muslim children died as a result of Madeleine Albright and Bill Clinton's sanctions imposed on Iraq in February 16, 1993. Iraq could not trade, could not import food, medical supplies, hospital equipment, etc..
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, said it was OK and worth it to kill over a half million Muslim children... which escalated and intensified the hatred and anger from global Muslim's worldwide towards the USA...

Osama Bin Laden was made in the USA...(by Bill Clinton)

When Clinton Lied... America Died...

"We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than Al Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims," said Imam Fiesal Abdul Rauf.

Raud added that having homes and lives destroyed does not justify "bombing innocent Iraqi civilians" or "actions of terrorism."

But diplomats and others, including former President Bill Clinton, have said that sentiment is wrong.

Saddam Hussein's regime corrupted then-U.N. sanctions and denied humanitarian aid to his own people.

In a Nov. 8, 2000, interview on Pacifica Radio, Clinton said if any child is without food or medicine, then Saddam is to blame because the dictator is "lying to the world and claiming the mean, old United States is killing his children."

People dies then Obama lied

"Hicks said that despite being the senior diplomat in Libya after Stevens was killed, he wasn't consulted at all before Rice went on Sunday talk shows to discuss the attacks.

...

In the interview, conducted on April 11, Hicks also makes clear that he immediately believed the September 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi had been conducted by terrorists, though the White House and other officials in the Obama administration initially suggested that the attack was the result of an out-of-control demonstration against an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

"I thought it was a terrorist attack from the get&#8209;go," said Hicks"

<quoted text>Who was the CIA station chief in Benghazi? shinningelectr0n puzzled queried , "Correct. No one knows."Congressional Republicans and conservative commentators alike have spent weeks wondering just who edited the now infamous talking points, accusing officials across the Obama administration of lying to cover-up the truth about Benghazi. Instead, what they have labeled a political decision to play down the role of al Qaeda by the Obama administration was actually a much more complicated process:

The officials said the first draft of the talking points had a reference to al Qaeda but it was removed by the Central Intelligence Agency, to protect sources and protect investigations, before the talking points were shared with the White House. No evidence has so far emerged that the White House interfered to tone down the public intelligence assessment, despite the attention the charge has received.

Edits and revisions of estimates continued on even as U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice was preparing to make her appearances on several Sunday morning news shows to discuss them on Sept. 16:

On Sept. 15, Michael Morell, then CIA deputy director and now acting director, spoke with the CIA station chief in Tripoli, who expressed concern that the agency’s reporting was off the mark. The station chief said there was no protest ongoing at the time of the attack, and he didn’t think the attack was spontaneous. Mr. Morell asked the chief to summarize his views in an email so the analysts at Langley could evaluate his take along with more than a dozen other internal intelligence reports, Mr. Morell later told lawmakers.

Officials placed the talking points that day in a binder that was hand-delivered to Ms. Rice at around 8 p.m. at her home in Washington, where she was making last-minute preparations before making the rounds of the news shows the following morning.

In addition, despite repeated right-wing insistence that the Obama administration mislead the public about the role an anti-Islam video played in the launch of the attack, the new story makes clear that members of the intelligence community “still believe the attack was inspired in part by the earlier protest in Cairo over the video.”

This new reporting solidifies previous stories that tanked Republican theories of official cover-up" http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/12/04/...
