Libya is to Obama what his Travel and School records would show.........much more damaging information than what the incompetience in Lybia is showing now......hence the cover up, lies and silence.

Seasons huh?

The latest U.S. Drought Monitor map released this morning shows most of IOWA still in “EXTREME DROUGHT” and the remainder of the state in “SEVERE DROUGHT” despite sporadic rainfall last week and a relaxation of the blast-furnace heat of July.

EXTREME DROUGHT extends from the Quad Cities to Council Bluffs, from far northwest Iowa to Keokuk. Only portions of south-central and northern Iowa have been spared the worst effects of what has been described as THE MOST SEVERE DROUGHT since the mid-1950s.

THE MSM IN THIS COUNTRY ARE SCUM AND SHOULD Be CASTIGATED TO THE VERMIN THEY ARE. The bastards on the left MSM and MEDIA MATTERS are basically covering for murder by hiding facts or not questioning the moronic excuses that Obama and the White House are putting out to cover the fact Obama never gave the order to go.........think back to waiting three times before he would say go for Osama bin Laden.........the boy can't be a man.

The once head of a Delta Ops just broke the lie Obama is hiding.....One of the Seals (Tyrone Woods) that was killed, was painting with a laser the Attacking Company that was attacking the Consulate with rockets and mortar fire. There is no reason to paint the target unless there were assets above either in the form of the AC One Thirty or the Drone to launch a weapon. You do not paint the target until the weapon is ready to launch because it also gives your position to the enemy. You do it at the last moment. Obama said he gave the order to do all that was necessary, so either someone disregarded the order to launch the weapon from the commander in chief or he is lying. We have nothing but cover up and lie from many people.......so it is obvious the order was NEVER GIVEN IN THE FIRST PLACE. Obama left them to die.

Benghazigate exists only in the demented Republican mind.

There is no cover-up

Once again Republicans are too stupid to realize they're beating a dead horse. Forgotten Fast and Furious and Eric Holder already?
Total exoneration?

Give it up, morons.

They refuse to acknowledge the scientific data. This was anticipated to occur in the 1970's, and these scientists were dismissed as "environmentalists".

They continue to believe those that have a financial interest in maintaining the "status quo" - these people want jobs, but if you don't have a planet to work on in the upcoming years, their cries of "my children will be bankrupted" are all BS - all these fools here have the same problem most Americans have had since the beginning - worrying about the short term, not thinking about what future they will leave behind.

Very sad people. And severely ill informed.

The operators on the roof of the CIA Annex that were 'painting' targets, were not designating just to be designating them. They had to have been in communications with an aircraft. So, either the drone was armed, Rear Adm. Gaouette had an F-18 overhead (from the Stennis Strike Group which is on Station in the MED)or GEN Ham (AFRICOM Commander)had a AC-130 Spectre on station. Either way you don't use that kind of laser designator on a whim, because it gives you away.

Also, both Rear ADM Gaouette and GEN Ham were both relieved of their commands. Gaouette was relieved on 27 OCT and Ham was relieved the 11 SEP. Both of them would have been inthe Chain of Command that received those calls for help. If anyone would have had C2 (command and control) of a rescue mission it would have been one of those two or both.

Its a pretty good bet that assets were in place for a rescue mission. It's a pretty good bet that both men were relieved for disobeying orders. The only person who could have stopped the rescue mission from going forward at that point would have been the President.

no cover up? so you really want to stick with extreme incompetence? he claims he called it "terrorism" the next day in rose garden.(sure doesn't sound like it when you listen again.) so his secy of state tells the grieving parents, "we are gonna get that video guy!" then his UN ambassador goes out 5 days later and tells the world it was the video, as does the prez to the UN. and the next day he flies off for campaign events and the view? really? right after he "knows" that terrorists have killed an ambassador? that is truly disgraceful. and don't say anything about bush, because that will not make it any less disgraceful.
