As is that of the GOPee wingnuts:
1. Push some sort of "White House Conspiracy" for as long as possible.
2. Throw their own President and former Sec'y of State under the bus.
3. Derail Hillary's Presidential run.
4. Keep talking about Benghazi while dismissing Bush's 9/11 failure as being "a long time ago."
5. Take phrases like "what difference does it make?" out of context to advance 1-4.
;)
well according to Obama's mouthpiece Carney,Benghazi happened "a long time ago" and that was all of 8 months ago,that would make 9/11 ancient history wouldn't it?

by the way, Obama is not "their own president" he's their "country's" president,see the difference?

Have you ever stood in front of a TEA PARTY PATRIOT and called them a teabagger? That is a term for faggots and you being gay should know that!! I'm sure you have never confronted a tea party patriot with that term because you still have the ability to write, and if you had done this you would not be able to spew your hate for white people!!!PUNK!!!

Tea Party "Patriot"?

The only thing worse than a teabaggers calling themselves "patriots" is republicans who cave in to their nutjob theories.

It is as useful to remind them anew of how the term originated and with whom. A TV news report aired last March 14 in which a correspondent described the original protest act,‘take a teabag, put it in an envelope, and mail it to the White House.’ He added,‘reteaparty.com has a headline Teabag the Fools in D.C. on tax day.’ Thus the verb to teabag was invented by the teabaggers themselves, and the correspondent who put it on TV was a Griff Jenkins of Fox News. Send your complaints to him.”

The teabaggers coined their own name, without realizing what it also means, and then they blamed their critics for their stupidity.

Poor teabagger.

Obviously Carney was referring to the fact that the attack had been investigated multiple times, conclusions had been reached, and it seemed to be receding into the background - before the GOPee dredged it up again to use as partisan political fodder.

If you're America, Obama's your President. The fact that Righties and modern Repubs don't see him that way indicates you're not real Americans.

If the attack was covered multiple times why did it never make the newspaper? There were no Congressional hearings. That would have made the newspapers. It doesn't matter it will be extentsively covered from now on until we see every part of it. Hell, these shifty people have screwed up so badly we could still be looking into their behavior in 2016.

I wonder how many of his administration and others will be sent to the gallows to save this moron. Nixon was an old whitey. Obama is not. So the idiots will follow him as false flags erupt all around us. Maybe even war. Hell is waiting....

A REVIEW of Benghazi Attack

SEPTEMBER 11 ATTACK TIMELINE

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

All times are Eastern European Time (EET, Benghazi)

~9:42 p.m. The attack begins at the TMF in Benghazi. Dozens of lightly armed men approached the TMF, quickly and deliberately breached the front gate, and set fire to the guard house and main diplomatic building. The attackers included members of Libya-based Ansar al-Sharia (AAS) and al-Qa’ida in the Lands of the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), among other groups.

A State Department officer in the TMF’s Tactical Operations Center immediately put out calls for help to the TMF Annex -
- another facility for U.S. officials -- the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, and State Department Headquarters in Washington, DC. At the time of the attack, Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, the information management officer, and one of the five Diplomatic Security (DS) officers were located in Villa C, the main
building of the TMF.(DoD timeline/pg. 11)

9:59 p.m. An unarmed, unmanned, surveillance aircraft is directed to reposition overhead
the Benghazi facility.(DoD timeline)

~10:02 p.m. Within 20-minutes of the attack, Stevens, Smith, and the DS officer suffered effects from smoke inhalation inside the main diplomatic building and tried to
escape by crawling along the floor towards a window. The DS officer
unknowingly lost touch with Ambassador Stevens and Mr. Smith somewhere along the smoke-filled escape route. After crawling out of a window and realizing that Ambassador Stevens and Mr. Smith were not with him, the DS officer, under gunfire, repeatedly re-entered the burning building to search for them. The DS officer used his radio to call for help. Security officers from other
parts of the TMF complex responded and supported the DS officer’s search for the missing individuals.(pg. 11)

10:05 p.m. In an “Ops Alert” issued shortly after the attack began, the State Department Operations Center notified senior Department Officials, the White House Situation Room, and others, that the Benghazi compound was under attack and that "approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well.”

~10:07 p.m. A U.S. security team departed the Annex for the TMF. The security team tried to secure heavy weapons from militia members encountered along the route, and faced some resistance in getting to the TMF. Even in the face of those obstacles,
the Annex security team arrived, under enemy fire, within 25 minutes of the beginning of the initial assault. Over the course of the following hour, the Annex
security team joined the TMF security officers in searching for Ambassador
Stevens and Mr. Smith. Together, they repelled sporadic gunfire and RPG fire
and assembled all other U.S. personnel at the facility. Officers retrieved the body
of Mr. Smith, but did not find Ambassador Stevens.

All times are Eastern European Time (EET, Benghazi)

10:32 p.m. The National Military Command Center at the Pentagon, after receiving initial reports of the incident from the State Department, notifies the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Staff. The information is quickly passed to
Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey.(DoD timeline)

11:00 p.m. Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey attend a previously scheduled meeting
with the President at the White House. The leaders discuss potential responses to
the emerging situation.(DoD timeline)

11:10 p.m. The diverted surveillance aircraft arrives on station over the Benghazi facility.
(DoD timeline)

~11:15 p.m. After about 90 minutes of repeated attempts to go into the burning building to
search for the Ambassador, the Annex security team assessed that the security situation was deteriorating and they could not continue their search. The Annex security team loaded all U.S. personnel into two vehicles and departed the TMF
for the Annex. The exiting vehicles left under heavy gunfire and faced at least one roadblock in their route to the Annex. The first vehicle left around 11:15p.m. and the second vehicle departed at about 11:30 p.m. All surviving American
personnel departed the facility by 11:30 p.m.
