This information released by the Times only moves Hillary Clinton two steps closer to the White House and cast serious doubts on the Republicans hold on the majority in the House of Representatives in 2014
The GOP look like utter idiots chasing the ghost of Benghazi wasting valuable time that could have been used best at working out details of a Jobs program.
The Republican spending cuts is the cause of the murder of Ambassador Steven, there's nothing the GOP can dream up to change that narratives, especially after it's been exposed that Benghazi and the mythical scandal was a created lie..........
This information only proves further the fact that hillary clinton is a pathalogical liar..........already a BI-PARTISAN committee saying the NY Times article is bullshit.

Spending cuts......hahahaha you're still on that lie. But there were plenty of Marines in all embassies surrounding the area.....C-130 gunships available, and Navy ships. Why didn't the spending cuts affect the Marines in Italy embassies across the Mediteranian, or the main embassy in Tripoli, or France, Spain, etc.

You can't cover obama and hillary's lies on this one boy.....you've slip your pants and everyone has caught it.

The ghosts of Benghazi is chasing the demorats and their ineptness, lies, corruption and bad decisions.

Oct. 10, 2012 hearing:

QUESTION: It has been suggested that budget cuts were responsible for a lack of security in Benghazi. And I'd like to ask Ms. Lamb, you made this decision personally. Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?
DEPUTY ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF STATE CHARLENE LAMB: No, sir.
***
QUESTION: So there's not a budget problem. It's not you all don't have the money to do this?
LAMB: Sir, it's a volatile situation. We will move assets to cover that.

May 8, 2013 hearing:

QUESTION: Mr. Nordstrom, you were on that panel. Do you remember what she [Lamb] said?
REGIONAL SECURITY OFFICER ERIC NORDSTROM: Yes, she said that resources was not an issue. And I think I would also point to the ARB report, if I'm not mistaken, that they talked to our chief financial officer with D.S.[Diplomatic Security], who also said that resources were not an issue.

Your problem is obvious, gustavson, you elected a liar and incomptent leader in the same ideology of Ray Nagin of New Orleans who is now in prison. He appointed hillary to Sec. of State to shut her up and shut up her supporters..........

And America is paying for it.

The Congressional reports say what they say and the President (where ever he was) knew, Hillary knew due to radio and phone reports thirty minutes after it was in full swing.. The lies about a video were just that lies and they knew it when they said it. Hillary and Obama are guilty of ignoring both their oath of office and their duty.
So........teabaggers chastise the same "gubmint" they want to "investigate" FOR them?

Get one the chickenhawks over there at FAUX to go and "investigate" and get that "proof" that will bury Obama.

Instead they whine.

The spending cuts were for the following year. The budget used in Benghazi was from the 2012 budget that ran from Oct 1, 2011 to Sept 30, 2012. They are lying about that too. They lie about everything. They think we only have access to information they feed us, but that isn't true.

The six-part report on the investigation is written by David D. Kirkpatrick and was posted Saturday on the Times' website. It centers on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who, the newspaper says, had direct knowledge of the attack and its context.

Who was there for months.

It was very clear to the individuals on the ground that this was an al-Qaeda-led event," Rep, Mike Rogers, R-Mich., who is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said last month on Fox News.

Who like FAUX, didn't even spend an hour there.

Just throw out "opinions" from the peanut gallery.

Just like every other teabagger.

So you are suggesting Obama lied about this too, not only in the Rose Garden but also during his television debate with Romney on Long Island, NY.

Perhaps you are correct in this. It certainly wouldn't be the first time Obama was caught in a lie. Nor the last time, I'll wager.

But, I think that the Times's investigation was flawed in that it occurred some time after the event itself and that it is based on the word of individuals who have been proven to be untrustworthy in the past. It also contradicts the reports of Obama, Hillary and the State Department. Now, who you gonna believe? Do you prefer our President or the radicals who murdered our ambassador?

Unlike teabaggers, I'll take the word of this reporter,over anyone who wasn't there or even bothered to investigate.

How do you know they are untrustworthy?

Proven by who?

FAUX and the teabagger peanut gallery.

Who didn't send ANYONE to "investigate".

"So you are suggesting Obama lied about this too, not only in the Rose Garden but also during his television debate with Romney on Long Island, NY".

At the time, he said what he was told to say.

Probably by the CIA.

That excuse was just too convenient , too quick to be believed (within hours).

People in Al Bayda , Ajdabiya or Cairo didn't know what was going on that quick, let alone our government.

The government takes months to find out what takes place in our own country.

So everyone testified that the video had nothing to do with the attack (no duh) but the NY Times is unable to resist their instinctive reflex to cover for the inept Obama admin and resurrects the video lie?

Remember when we had real journalism in this country?

Thank God for Fox News, who else even pays attention besides that one channel?

A bi partisan group of Congressmen debunked the NYT report this morning. So believe what ever you want. You won't be the first misinformed Liberal. Hillary and Obama cannot clean this mess up. Susan Rice, all of them lied, and the whole world knows it. It will be investigated over, and over until the Government is satisfied we have the truth, and we will get the truth.

What Difference Does It Make?

Even if this was merely a band of anti-Western Muslims, sympathetic to al-Qaeda, and they were able to take down a consulate on September 11, after repeated warnings from the Ambassador of impending disaster, I consider this worse for this administration, and it renders Obama’s stump speech claim of muscular control even more ridiculous.
