The following script is from "Benghazi" which aired on Oct. 27, 2013. The correspondent is Lara Logan. Max McClellan, producer.
When Chris Stevens was killed in Benghazi, Libya, on the anniversary of September 11th last year, it was only the sixth time that the United States had lost an ambassador to its enemies. The events of that night have been overshadowed by misinformation, confusion and intense partisanship. But for those who lived through it, there's nothing confusing about what happened, and they share a sense of profound frustration because they say they saw it coming.
Tonight, you will hear for the first time from a security officer who witnessed the attack. He calls himself, Morgan Jones, a pseudonym he's using for his own safety. A former British soldier, he's been helping to keep U.S. diplomats and military leaders safe for the last decade. On a night he describes as sheer hell, Morgan Jones snuck into a Benghazi hospital that was under the control of al Qaeda terrorists, desperate to find out if one of his close friends from the U.S. Special Mission was the American he'd been told was there.
Morgan Jones: I was dreading seeing who it was, you know? It didn't take long to get to the room. And I could see in through the glass. And I didn't even have to go into the room to see who it was. I knew who it was immediately.
Lara Logan: Who was it?
Morgan Jones: It was the ambassador, dead. Yeah, shocking.
Morgan Jones said he'd never felt so angry in his life. Only hours earlier, Amb. Chris Stevens had sought him out, concerned about the security at the U.S. Special Mission Compound where Morgan was in charge of the Libyan guard force.
Now, the ambassador was dead and the U.S. compound was engulfed in flames and overrun by dozens of heavily armed fighters.
Although the attack began here, the more organized assault unfolded about a mile across the city at a top secret CIA facility known as the Annex. It lasted more than seven hours and took four American lives.
Contrary to the White House's public statements, which were still being made a full week later, it's now well established that the Americans were attacked by al Qaeda in a well-planned assault.
Five months before that night, Morgan Jones first arrived in Benghazi, in eastern Libya about 400 miles from the capital, Tripoli.
He thought this would be an easy assignment compared to Afghanistan and Iraq. But on his first drive through Benghazi, he noticed the black flags of al Qaeda flying openly in the streets and he grew concerned about the guard forces as soon as he pulled up to the U.S. compound.
Morgan Jones: There was nobody there that we could see. And then we realized they were all inside drinking tea, laughing and joking.
Lara Logan: What did you think?
Morgan Jones: Instantly I thought we're going to have to get rid of all these guys.
Morgan Jones' job was training the unarmed guards who manned the compound's gates. A second Libyan force -- an armed militia hired by the State Department -- was supposed to defend the compound in the event of an attack. Morgan had nothing to do with the militia, but they worried him so much, he could not keep quiet.
Morgan Jones: I was saying, "These guys are no good. You need to-- you need to get 'em out of here."
Lara Logan: You also kept saying, "If this place is attacked these guys are not going to stand and fight?"
Morgan Jones: Yeah. I used to say it all the time. Yeah, in the end I got quite bored of hearing my own voice saying it.
Andy Wood: We had one option: "Leave Benghazi or you will be killed."
Green Beret Commander, Lieutenant Colonel Andy Wood, was one of the top American security officials in Libya. Based in Tripoli, he met with Amb. Stevens every day.
She's not too fond of Muslims since her sexual assault in Egypt. She hates all of them, Obama included.

God was unhappy because most of the people were wicked. God decided to destroy all the wicked people
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.( Gen 6:8)

God saw one righteous man named Noah. The son of Lamech, Noah, found favor with God because he was blameless in his generation.
These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. And Noah begot three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.(Gen 6:9-13)

To show his faith in God, Noah shall come into ark. God promised to keep Noah and his family alive in the ark. And Noah believed in the Lord. Noah's faith defeated all the unrighteous reasoning. To build such a huge ark required years and years of hard labor and expense. To gather all the food and to care for all the animals require from him a great deal of care. And most of all he needed faith in the Lord to continue in his labor when his neighbor laughed and ridiculed him.
And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shall thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto you, to keep them alive. And take you unto you of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to you; and it shall be for food for you, and for them. Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

You'd think Winston Churchill was tainted by going on Fox.
Many prominent democrats go on Fox every day. And many liberals are Fox employees.
You will rarely see a conservative on MSNBC, much less on a regular basis and as an MSNBC contributor.
Your fixation with Fox is almost unnatural.
Holding the feet of those in power to the fire to protect us is a good thing. Healthy debate by both sides is also a good thing.
The corrupt liberal media has just corrupted your perspective.
Trotting out that damned lie again Carol? Joe Scarborough, a conservative has a program on MSNBC called "Morning Joe" five days a week. Michael Steele, former RNC chairman is a regular guest on Chris Matthews "Hardball" as well as other programs.
So what liberal or even moderate has a program or even a regular commentary on Fox?

Not at all. They are very supportive of the Affordable Care Act.

The majority of them are being realistic by acknowledging that the website problems have delayed the enrollment process and are suggesting that the enrollment period be extended for a couple of months to "make up for time that is being lost". They are not siding with Republicans in delaying the mandate for a year.

The two suggesting that the individual mandate be extended for a year are both Blue Dog Democrats, Sen. Joe Manchin, W.Va and Rep. John Barrow of Georgia. No one should be surprised by their position.

Personally, given the technical issues, I think it makes sense to extend the enrollment process by a couple of months but don't believe that is feasible without another fight in Congress. It's best to let sleeping dogs lie and just proceed without any changes. It will all work out.

If your insurance company is canceling your policy you bought as an individual, it doesn't mean it is due to the ACA.

https://www.healthcare.gov/what-if-i-have-a-g...

Furthermore, if you buy decent insurance with good coverage as an individual then it is very likely you will save significant money on the exchanges.

All of this whining from the right is just plain stupid.

Where is the lie? There is absolutely nothing in the ACA that says you can't keep your doctor or your policy if it was in place at the time the ACA was passed. If you think there is, post the section and page.
If you believe insurance companies and employers should no longer have the right to change plans or eliminate doctors, take it up with your representative in Congress. That is a different issue.
It's easier to try and fool people, than it is to convince them you have NOT been fooled old woman..

I was watching TV tonight and on came a movie called Mercury Rising starring Bruce Willis. It's about the NSA trying to silence an autistic child who broke their precious security code.
In the movie, the head of the NSA claims that he's doing the "patriotic" thing for his country. Killing child for your country is a tough thing to do but a good patriot does what has to be done.
All of this came to me in a flash tonight: the Magic Negro is killing innocent kids and women with his drones and I'm damned sure he would tell you, just as Alec Baldwin did in the flick, that it is the patriotic thing to do. Just don't touch his kids, dammit.
Edward Snowden as Bruce Willis?
Life in America, under this monster of smiling evil, has reached its cheapest point in my lifetime. I am afraid for this country's future and for its citizens.

Fox News clears up CBS News story about perils of Obamacare

After appearing on CBS News yesterday morning in a segment on her rising health-care costs under Obamacare, 56-year-old Florida resident Dianne Barrette received calls from producers at Fox News, the better to repeat her critical tale on TV’s No. 1 outlet for Obamacare opposition. Presumably the network was interested in how Barrette’s insurance premiums were set to go from around $50 to nearly $600, as she explained yesterday on CBS News.

The story, however, wasn’t as straightforward as the CBS News account suggested. As pointed out here and here, Barrette’s $50 insurance plan was shot through with holes, particularly with respect to hospitalization. The Obamacare-compliant plan that she was offered in its place must comply with a set of basic standards, including hospitalization.

Following all the ruckus, Fox News host Greta Van Susteren interviewed Barrette on last night’s edition of her program “On the Record.” The deficiencies of Barrette’s longtime plan got plenty of attention from Van Susteren:

VAN SUSTEREN: I must say though that your policy is like, you know, if you are walking across the street and someone runs a red light, you are in deep trouble under your existing policy.

BARRETTE: That is true.

Now there’s something: Fox News, clearing up the distorted and negative impressions left by the mainstream media on Obamacare.

Following her chat with Van Susteren, Barrette got word from a network producer that her appointment to appear this morning on Fox News was cancelled, she tells the Erik Wemple Blog.
