So even liberal-leaning news sources aren't "actual sources"?
Who, then, DO you believe?
But in looking up the special agent's role in the investigations, I came across this from CBS.(Should I ask first if CBS an "actual source"?)
In an interview with President Obama on the same day, "60 Minutes" correspondent Steve Kroft presses the president on early accounts that the attack stemmed from a spontaneous protest, saying it didn't "sound like your normal demonstration."
"We're still investigating exactly what happened," Mr. Obama said. "I don't want to jump the gun on this. But you're right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt. And my suspicion is, is that there are folks involved in this, who were looking to target Americans from the start."

Why does this president insist on calling terrorists "folks" all the time? He used that term referring to terrorists twice in the interview with O'Reilly.

Use new remote sensor technologies that enable your parents to live on their own without being alone. These systems use unobtrusive, wireless motion sensors that are strategically placed in each part of your parent’s home. Sensors are programmed to learn your parent’s routines and transfer pertinent information to supervisors who are on the lookout for changes in your parents living patterns that might indicate a medical problem or emergency. This new sensor technology is especially helpful if you live far away from your parents and want to know they are safe and protected at all times. Remote sensors are at the heart of Selfhelp’s care management plan and are extremely affordable.

If, in that interview with "60 Minutes", Obama was questioned on the same day about the early accounts not sounding like "your normal demonstration" and his response was he didn't know "exactly what happened" and didn't want to "jump the gun" and still admitted it was not a situation exactly like that in Egypt....why - oh why - did he continue to adamantly blame a video?

Pretty sure that interview with "60 Minutes" is archived somewhere. Probably can find it on the "60 Minutes" website - or you tube.

But denial is definitely your weakest flaw - to the point of distraction to others, hate to say.

Read an obituary sometimes: I just read one this morning about a guy who died at the age of 95. It stated he was survived by 4 children & listed them. They were all married & he had lots of grandchildren.
According to you, this guy had 4 children starting when he wass 77 years old & they all were married under the age of 18 & some had multiple babies before the age of 18.
Right? This is what you are saying.
You are just plain dumber than sh*t.
On the Ron Paul Channel, it says this " Dr. Paul and his high-school love and wife of more than 55 years, Carol, have five children, 19 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren."
So, Rand Paul is under 18 years old?

Georgia cop fatally shoots teen boy who was holding a Wii video game controller
A family in Georgia said this week that a police officer should never have killed 17-year-old Christopher Roupe because he was only holding a video game controller, not a gun as authorities have claimed.
According to WSB-TV, Roupe had been shot to death on Friday when Euharlee officers showed up at his home to serve a probation violation warrant on his father. The officer later told state investigators that she was forced to shoot because Roupe had pointed at gun at her when he opened the door.
But Roupe’s family and witnesses who were at the scene said that the officer’s statement was just not true.
Attorney Cole Law, who is representing the family, told WSB-TV that the boy was holding a Wii video game controller because he was getting ready to watch a movie.
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/02/19/georgia...
The officer looks like Mama June. All those little Boss Hogg burgs in Georgia have PD's, additionally there are Sheriffs and State Police. Never been to Euharlee, it's on the road to nowhere, but I've been to Rome Ga which is in that region__it's different out that way.

I wonder what the warrant was for?

with the government being the single payer, there is no competition for doctors' services and the government can pay as little as it chooses....until the doctors are forced to become government employees....

plus, single payer means that the best brain surgeon in the country is paid the same as the worst brain surgeon in the country....the ultimate triumph of the DemoKKKrat desire for complete mediocrity....

ObammyCare is the Gift that Keeps on Giving

On January 1, 2014, ObamaCare cut nearly $22 billion from Medicare home health care over four years. That means an estimated 3.5 million poor and ill homebound senior citizens woke up on New Year's Day to discover that ObamaCare had slashed funding for their home health care program.

Last year, Medicare home health services were delivered to approximately 3.5 million Medicare beneficiaries. According to the federal government's own data, these seniors are older, poorer and sicker than the Medicare beneficiary population as whole. Many of these seniors also reside in rural communities, where home health care is especially important because other sources of treatment are often located many miles away.

But wait, there's more: according to the Obama Administration's own statistics, "approximately 40 percent" of all providers of home health services face net losses as a result of this Medicare cut. Put more plainly, 4-in-10 of all the providers on whom homebound seniors depend face the threat of bankruptcy and closure as a result of ObamaCare. That's 5,000 home health care companies and 500,000 jobs wiped out in order to pay for ObamaCare.

Of course, this is merely one example of how ObamaCare is hurting American citizens, affecting American businesses and impacting American jobs.

ObamaCare: a destructive and costly monstrosity.

A Republican congressional candidate in Nevada is arguing that legislation that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity is segregation.

The candidate, Cresent Hardy, called the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, which prohibits employers from discriminating against their employees based on sexual orientation, a "segregation" law. The Employee Nondiscrimination Act has passed the Senate, but has yet to be taken up by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. Hardy is running for Nevada's 4th Congressional District. Hardy is a member of the Nevada state assembly.

so that means i can fire someone for not being gay?

keep up the good work Mr. Hardy.

Okay, people, this isn't really that hard.

Obama was questioned on the same day of the attack about the early accounts not sounding like "your normal demonstration" in an interview with "60 Minutes".

His response was it was "still under investigation" and he "didn't want to jump the gun".

He admitted it wasn't exactly like the situation in Egypt.

This portion of that interview was cut by CBS. You may not like the source, but the video is from CBS as noted on the video itself.

http://nation.foxnews.com/60-minutes/2012/11/...

In the interview, according to the latest portions, Obama would not say whether he thought the attack was terrorism. Yet he would later emphasize at a presidential debate that in the Rose Garden the same day, he had declared the attack an act of terror.

And if it WAS still under investigation and he DIDN'T want to jump the gun, why did he act like he DID know exactly what happened for weeks afterwards and DID jump the gun immediately after the interview?

Can somebody please answer these questions?

Why so many inconsistencies with this president? And was this, in fact, an attempt at a cover up?

Obama tried to put behind him the scandals that have hung over his second term, suggesting his administration did not mislead the public on the Benghazi attack and going so far as to say the IRS targeting scandal had “not even a smidgen of corruption.”

Lois Lerner, a top Internal Revenue Service official, invoked the 5th Amendment and declined to testify Wednesday before a House committee investigating the agency’s mishandling of applications by some conservative groups for tax-exempt status.

Not even a smidgen, eh, Barry?
