Panetta: I Told White House ‘from the Very Beginning’ that Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack
October 7, 2014
Former defense secretary Leon Panetta continues to pile on criticism of his former Obama-administration colleagues, telling NBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday that he immediately “sensed” that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and told administration officials as much.
“I didn’t have any specific information,” he said.“But the fact was, when you bring grenade launchers to a demonstration, there’s something else going on. And I just, from the very beginning, sensed that this was a terrorist attack on our compound. And I remember saying to [CIA director Petraeus],‘Look, based on the weapons that I see, based on the nature of the attack, I think this was a terrorist attack.’”
Obama-administration officials insisted for weeks afterward that the September 11, 2012 attack was a demonstration that spiraled out of control — not, as it was later confirmed, a planned terrorist strike carried out by al-Qaeda-linked elements in Libya.

You're confused. Perhaps it's because you get your news from the Koch Brothers.
Obama called it a terrorist attack the next day.
When did Bush call the 13 attacks on US embassies that happened under his watch "terrorism?"

This is what Romney said on one of the Presidential debates thus losing the election for lying and not having his facts straight. All the news networks ran his 'speech' as 'lack of knowledge on world issues'.........

Bobby Kennedy: Climate Denying Businesses Deserve 'Death Penalty'
Oct. 7, 2014
Last week, Bobby Kennedy Jr. announced he thought denying climate change should be criminal:“Do I think the Koch brothers should be prosecuted for reckless endangerment? Absolutely. That’s a criminal offense and they ought to be serving time for it.”
Now he’s trying to “clarify” that nonsense.
“Hysterics [on the Right] are foaming in apoplexy because I supposedly suggested that ‘all climate deniers should be jailed,’” he taunted.“Of course I never said that. I support the First Amendment, which makes room for any citizen to, even knowingly, spew far more vile lies without legal consequence.”
Got that? Denying climate change is a vile lie, though there are worse ones.
Then he doubled down, saying,“I do, however, believe that corporations which deliberately, purposefully, maliciously and systematically sponsor climate lies should be given the death penalty. This can be accomplished through an existing legal proceeding known as ‘charter revocation.’ State Attorneys General can invoke this remedy whenever corporations put their profit-making before the ‘public welfare.’”

CBS Buries Results of Own Poll Showing Poor Ratings for Obama, Democrats Ahead of Midterms
On Wednesday night, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley made no mention of the results from the latest CBS News poll that gave President Obama and Democrats poor marks ahead of the November 4 midterm elections on issues ranging from the economy to ISIS to terrorism to who voters are most likely to vote for.
Regarding the midterm elections, Republicans find themselves ahead of Democrats on both a generic ballot and specific issues. Republicans have a six point lead against Democrats overall (49 percent to 43 percent with those leaning left or right, 46 percent to 40 percent without) and a five point lead who voters would like most to see takeover the Senate (47 percent to 42 percent). Independents sided with the GOP by a full 30 points over Democrats (57 percent to 27 percent).
When it came to who voters trust to do a better job on the economy, foreign policy, and terrorism, the picture is the same. On the topic of terrorism, the GOP holds an massive lead of 21 points over Democrats at 52 percent to 32 percent and then advantages of 9 and 11 percentage points on the economy and foreign policy, respectively.
For President Obama, voters are not giving him high remarks either. While CBS News congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes said Tuesday night that criticizing Obama on his handling of ISIS is “a tricky campaign issue” because he “does have a plan now,” voters are proving Cordes otherwise, as only 36 percent of voters said that he does have a plan, while 56 percent still say that he doesn’t.
Also, a mere 36 percent of Americans approve of Obama’s handling of foreign policy while 56 percent disapprove. On how he has been handling ISIS and terrorism, 51 percent of Americans disapprove of the job he’s doing in both categories. Additionally, 52 percent of voters disapprove of his handling of the economy (53 percent approve).
In two final results, only 29 percent of Americans believe the country is currently moving in the right direction, while 65 percent believe the U.S. is on the wrong track. Regarding the state of the economy, 55 percent said that “it is in bad shape” with “[j]ust 29 percent” answering that “it is improving.”

Aides knew of possible White House link to Cartagena, Colombia, prostitution scandal
As nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired following a 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia, Obama administration officials repeatedly denied that anyone from the White House was involved.
But new details drawn from government documents and interviews show that senior White House aides were given information at the time suggesting that a prostitute was an overnight guest in the hotel room of a presidential advance-team member — yet that information was never thoroughly investigated or publicly acknowledged.
The lead investigator later told Senate staffers that he felt pressure from his superiors in the office of Charles K. Edwards, who was then the acting inspector general, to withhold evidence — and that, in the heat of an election year, decisions were being made with political considerations in mind.
“We were directed at the time . . . to delay the report of the investigation until after the 2012 election,” David Nieland, the lead investigator on the Colombia case for the DHS inspector general’s office, told Senate staffers, according to three people with knowledge of his statement.
Nieland added that his superiors told him “to withhold and alter certain information in the report of investigation because it was potentially embarrassing to the administration.”
