"The statement that came from the administration was a statement which is akin to an apology and I think was a severe miscalculation."

Obama always apologizes for America to honor his father and grandfather who fought against Whites in Kenya. In the movie, 2016, you see Obama at his father's grave vowing to get revenge.

Their superiors actually have to attend the daily briefings first.

One thing to remember. Intelligence (CIA) officers are normal staffing of all embassies and most consulates. Use of these people still in country would not require a separate finding. And CIA does more than special operations; it’s main purpose is intelligence gathering.

There is the presumption that the mission was “preparing the battlefield”. That presumption most likely is wrong.

Contacts with opposition leaders can include political (diplomatic) and military discussions. And both can be conducted by any assigned State Department or CIA personnel (the Ambassador to Egypt was responsible for contacting opposition groups during the Egyptian revolution).

I’m much more curious in the domestic media manipulation, office politics or partisan politics motives?

UH,UH??? WHAT NOW SECY CLINTON?? THOSE PANTS GETTING A LITTLE TIGHT

We've had full diplomatic relations and a functioning embassy in Libya since 2006. Ample time to sort thing out.

Mitt Romney is a blundering fool with an oversized piggy bank. Would you honestly want him within reach of the red button?

Things didn't change at all with the overthrow of the regime? Again, if you expect our intelligence community to prevent every attack, you are being naive.

I certainly don't expect anything when the alleged "president" of this country doesn't attend more than half of his intel briefings:

The Government Accountability Institute, a new conservative investigative research organization, examined President Obama’s schedule from the day he took office until mid-June 2012, to see how often he attended his Presidential Daily Brief (PDB)— the meeting at which he is briefed on the most critical intelligence threats to the country. During his first 1,225 days in office, Obama attended his PDB just 536 times — or 43.8 percent of the time. During 2011 and the first half of 2012, his attendance became even less frequent — falling to just over 38 percent. By contrast, Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.

Out of context horseshit, sir. Obama is a decent man, who would never think like you do.

All this misses the point, however. The best reason to vote for Obama is to consider the alternative.

You lefties always cry "Out of context!" when caught with your hand in the cookie jar. Obama is far from being a man, much less a decent one.
And your "oversized piggy bank" remark no doubt wasn't aimed at John Kerry-Heinz in 2004, was it? He's worth five times what Mitt is.
