In its latest line of excuses, the State Department is now saying officials never blamed violence in the Middle East, particularly the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, on a YouTube video.

The State Department denied Tuesday it ever concluded that the deadly consulate attack Sept. 11 in Libya was an unplanned outburst prompted by an anti-Islam movie.

FLASHBACK:

The Obama administration used that explanation for more than a week after assailants killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. Most notably, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said in several TV interviews five days after the attack that it appeared to be "spontaneous" violence spinning out of protests of the film.

If he gets elected, this will be a bad second term filled with impeachment proceedings. The absurdity of this coverup in plain site just so Obama wouldn't have to say we were attacked on his watch...on 9-11. But truth be told hes probably taken Hillary out too.

He doesn't deserve to be commander in chief.

He takes all these instances to unify America and pisses them away.

Yesterday, the Republicans held hearings to condemn Obama and Hilary for possible security lapses in Benghazi....Typical Partisan Electioneering Stunt......Especially when you learn....REPUBLICANS HAD PREVIOUSLY VOTED DOWN THE STATE DEPARTMENT'S REQUEST FOR ADDITIONAL SECURITY FUNDING.....Wow.....

Monday it was found that Obama is accepting campaign contributions from China and other countries.....illegal and will most likely be brought up in the debates, certainly not on the news!

this had zero to do with funding. They denied the additional security forces then INCREASED HAZARD PAY TO THOSE LEFT

THIS IS A COVERUP AND SCANDAL. PEOPLE DIED, OBAMA LIED...and then he thru American citizens under the bus.

Good Day,

With all due respect Blue... This thing stinks, badly. CNN reported that the Amassador wrote in his diary he was concerned for his safety. Then we have the email exchange where the Benghazi consulate requested more security but was denied by Hillary's State Department. Also, further requests by the consulate went completely unanswered by the State department as well. Then, you have DWS out there claiming that to investigate the Benghazi attack is "un-American" and that just because the administration "Put out wrong statements, doesn't mean it was false". Huh? And now there is breaking news... Just a mere four days after the State Department rejected the "DC 3 Support" for Libya, they approved $108K worth of Chevy Volts and charging equipment for the embassy in Vienna! Not good...

Steelie, this close to this election, i am likely not to believe, just about any, "This just in" type updates....I am not too keen, on our having people at alot of the most dangerous spots...I've thought, this incident was about 9/11, all along. Also, one huge problem, is no access to the compound for weeks, so what kind of thorough investigation, could have been done?...Do you know, if we have anyone in Syria? I see one of our people, got shot in Yeman, another shith*le....Tonight's tough...Steelers vs. Debate...lol....

So, this close to the election, anything that is said against Obama will be disregarded. Anything, however, that is said about Romney or Ryan will be a story from now until the election. Partisanship is truly alive and well. Oh wait, that's no different than it's been since the election in 2008.

Good Day,

Hey Blue... It would appear to me that if the State Department had listened to the consulate - we might not have four dead Americans including an Ambassador.

As far as being close to an election... IMHO, it is called politics (no offense). And I can just about promise you that there is at least one more bombshell report out there regarding either Obama or his administration. Just call it a gut feeling. I would, in fact, be a bit suprised if one does not emerge. I say this in the wake of the various videos that have been released over the past few weeks. I get the feeling they are leading up to something. I am not buying into a conspiracy theory here, just that something feels "funny" if you know what I mean.

I agree with you, especially about the something feels funny....but must discern between, something real and something manufactured, and this is the, "manufacturing season"....The fact that our investigators weren't allowed into the compound for two weeks, makes any conjecture by either side, questionable at best.....when did we become so keen on meting out blame to every aspect of every issue, often without any real facts....it gets a bit, tiresome...don't you think? Libya has way too many RPG's and automatic weapons, walking around loose, and it is my opinion, this was a planned attack, to coincide with 9/11.....We've likely both travelled overseas enough to realize, the State Department has always taken safety, very seriously....

The fact 4 Americans are dead precludes anything "manufactured", unless you don't take that any more seriously than Biden appeared to in last night's debate.

There's a time for politics and a time for answers. This administration's inept handling and then apparent attempt to "manufacture" an excuse other than an organized terrorist attack deserves to be seriously investigated, regardless of whether or not it hurts your beloved Obama's goddamned reelection chances.

Americans deserve answers.

The left is looking at this strictly from a reelection of Barack standpoint.

If this were a republican administration's inept handling and coverup attempt the same people who are pretending it never happened would be beyond tantrum stage.

Go Blue knows it, and he's just too blindly loyal to Obama to let something like ethics and morality get in his way.
