Mr. Obama should take a tip from Harry “The Buck Stops Here” Truman, and accept responsibility for the Libya debacle. He also has an obligation to tell the American people whether he or any appointed administration official denied military assistance to those under siege in Benghazi.
Mr. Obama should ask his attorney general to appoint an independent investigator to examine all aspects of the Benghazi attack. The State Department investigation currently under way and touted by the president will not satisfy many Americans because of conflicting interests and statements of Department officials like Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, American Foreign Service Association President Susan Johnson (who represents more than 31,000 active and retired Foreign Service Officers), and others who publicly perpetrated the administration myth that an obscure anti-Islam video served as the catalyst for the attack.
Finally, the situation in Benghazi demanded courage, swiftness, decisiveness and good judgment to save American lives. Sadly, Mr. Obama didn’t display any of those qualities on that fateful night, choosing instead to turn his back on undersecured and outgunned Americans pleading for help. Come Election Day, Americans may turn their backs on him.

Well all that sounds fine but the complete failure of the Obama Administration to support the Benghazi counsulate with available military force is so blatently OBVIOUS the outcome of any investigation, even by school kids, would reveal the failure.

There will be NO investigation of any kind prior to the election. And once elected the incedent will be forgotten. 4 dead Americans forgotten, thanks Barak you phocking idiot.

barry did'nt even want to kill his muslim brother osama bin laden, and the navy seals killed him not barry soetoro. get that straight liberals.

All I am saying is IF Obama gets credit for the killing of Osama because he was the president at the time then he should get the blame for the killing of our men in Benghazi because he was president at the time. It's that simple, you cant pick and choose your successes and failures. As president you get them all.

True, and anyone of reasonable intelligence knows Obama caused the 4 deaths in Libya. Hillery recruited the Ambassador who died and she feels real bad but must continue marching to the beat of the moron.

Note: Hillery announced she will NOT be running for any office in 2016.

Seattle, will ya check my spelling?

Libya was hardly a unique situation. Here is a sampling from the Bush years.

"Karachi, Pakistan, June 14, 2002, February 28, 2003, March 15, 2004, and March 2, 2006:The string of bombings and attempted bombings outside the U.S. consult in Karachi were thought to be in retaliation for the War on Terror in Afghanistan, and later Iraq. The first bomb in June 2002 was a suicide bomber, who killed 12 and injured 51 people. In February 2003, a gunman killed two police officer and injured five others outside the consulate. In March 2004, an attempted bombing was stopped when police discovered 200 gallons of liquid explosives in the back of a truck. In March 2006, another suicide bomber killed six people outside a nearby Marriott Hotel.
Tashkent, Uzbekistan, July 30, 2004: The U.S. and Israeli embassies were targeted by suicide bombers. Two security guards were killed.
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, December 6, 2004: Militants breached the outer wall of the U.S. consulate and began shooting, but did not enter the consulate. Five civilians and the gunmen were killed. Ten people were wounded.
Damascus, Syria, September 12, 2006: Three gunmen were killed after they tossed grenades over the embassy's outer wall and a car bomb exploded outside the embassy. A Syrian security guard and a Chinese diplomat also died.
Athens, Greece, January 12, 2007: A rocket-propelled grenade was fired into the front of the U.S. embassy around 6 am in the morning. No one was killed or hurt. A Greek terrorist group called "Revolutionary Struggle" claimed responsibility.
Istanbul, Turkey, July 9, 2008: Kurdish Turks open fired around 11 am, killing six people and injuring one. The three men had suspected Al-Qaeda links, but this was never proven.
San'a, Yemen, September 7, 2008: 19 people died and at least 16 were injured when a group of men disguised at police attacked the outer security rim of the U.S. embassy. Al-Qaeda affiliate Islamic Jihad of Yemen claimed responsibility."

Is Bush running for President? Did Osama Hussein Obama say he had Al Qaeda on the run? Did Osama Hussein Obama's people say the killings were the result of some imbecilic video? Did Osama Hussein Obama lie to the American people?

Good-bye Osama Hussein Obama. Welcome President Romney.

he wants out - wants nothing to do with killing Americans

CIA Director David Petraeus is quitting, citing personal reasons, a government source says.
