Libya does not want cooperation with these robbers, war mongers, genocides, war criminals from usa.
Libya can cooperate with Russia, China, Iran.
usa, to say the truth. Why was Libya destroyed by usa ( this time in white gloves). Because Libya had accounts in uss and european banks. And the same thing is with Syria.

Analysis: Biden rekindles controversy over administration's Libya statements

October 12, 2012|Susan Cornwell | Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- The Obama administration's latest verbal bungle over the chain of events leading to the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, rekindled the controversy over the incident on Friday and offered new ammunition to Republican opponents.

In Thursday night's vice presidential debate, Vice President Joe Biden insisted that "we weren't told they wanted more security" at the ill-fated U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, where U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens died.

Biden's statement, at least on the surface, appeared to contradict congressional testimony less than 48 hours earlier from State Department officials, and offered a fresh opening for Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney, who has repeatedly sought to attack the White House over the issue.

It was the latest example of a White House, which has long prided itself on "message discipline," flubbing its own message on the Libya attacks. President Barack Obama and his aides have struggled to explain why they first described the violence as growing out of protests over an anti-Muslim movie, only later to acknowledge it was an organized attack by militants.

In a written commentary the day before Biden spoke, prominent national security analyst Anthony Cordesman said the administration had "fumbled the situation by going into a state of confused denial" about Libya. The administration should also have made a stronger case for establishing on-the-scene diplomacy in a volatile environment such as post-Gaddafi Libya, he wrote.

The White House was quick to defend Biden on Friday, saying he had been speaking only for himself and Obama - in other words, not for anyone else in the administration who might have heard about the dangers facing Americans in Libya's relatively lawless second city before Stevens and three other Americans were killed on the night of September 11.

So who's in charge over there? That 2 Am Call came and Obama didn't even answer the phone!

Obama Compounded this Debacle with Cover Ups and Lies

"Within 24 hours of the incident the administration knew that this was an orchestrated terrorist attack, and they clearly were aware of the specific details, including requests for additional security, that have finally been made public this week," Corker said in a statement.

"With the vice president continuing this ruse with his comments last night, all Americans should ask what the administration is trying to hide," he added.

At the congressional hearing on Wednesday, two U.S. security officers described their frustration that their requests for more security resources in Libya were ignored in the weeks and months before the assault on the Benghazi mission.

An official from the State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security acknowledged at the hearing that she had turned aside pleas for more security.

"I said personally I would not support it," the official, Charlene Lamb, said when asked about one particular request to extend deployment of a 16-person U.S. military team that left Libya in August, a month before the bloodshed in Benghazi.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also tried to smooth over the controversy, saying the administration was dealing with the best available information as it came in about the events in Benghazi.

"To this day - to this day - we do not have a complete picture. We do not have all the answers. No one in this administration has ever claimed otherwise," Clinton said at an appearance with visiting Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi.

Lying Liars and Those Who Cover For Them

The Democrats are quite the party of Accomplished Liars: there's Barack Obama, of course, the most skillfull and proficient liar to come along since, well, Bill Clinton. And then there's Obama's entire campaign team, including Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, Jim Messina, and David Plouffe; his entire Cabinet from the Queen of Foreign Policy Lies Hillary Clinton to Tax Cheat Tim Geithner to Abortion Enthusiast Kathleen Sebelius; and then there's sundry other top Democrats, including Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore, John Kerry, John Edwards...and, well, I could go on, but the internet has limited space.

Today we learn that top Democrat Senate candidate in Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren (another former top Obama appointee), who has already lied about her "Cherokee heritage" and various other things, has apparently lied about having a law license to practice in Massachusetts. According to the great legal blog, Legal Insurrection, Warren has privately practiced law out of her Harvard Law School office, despite not being licensed to do so in Massachusetts. This is a potential felony.(See the research and article here: http://legalinsurrection.com/2012/09/elizabet ...)

Of course, just as her lies about her "Indian" heritage were glossed over---even though she still refuses to release her academic records so we can see if she committed fraud in using that fake heritage to gain admission to the Harvard faculty---this will likely be shrugged over as well, because the leftwing media will not cover it----or makes excuses for it or simply buries it.

It used to be that politicians engaged in their own cover-ups and the media doggedly investigated in order to expose them. Now, however, the leftwing media are so corrupt and sick that they are now performing the cover-ups FOR these politicians.

Where is the outrage over these lying liars currently running (and running to run) the country? Neutralized by a lapdog press determined to prove they can perform cover-ups better than the politicians they protect.
AND WE EXPECT WHAT FROM ALL THESE SCUM BAGS????

OBAMA EVERY ONE GETS A FAIR SHOT???(AT LYING)?

He is an evil, uncoordinated liar. Yep. That's our president. An evil, uncoordinated liar. A killer. A coward and a hider. "Hitler is back and this time he's black" is Obama's new slogan. I bet Hitler would have protected his own Ambassadors better than Obama, and Hitler would have treated BIBI with as much respect as Obama does. Bibi lived in Philadelphia while going to Cheltenham High School. He can kick Obama's skinny delicate butt up and down the block. I guess you can tell that I have NO respect for the "Butcher of Benghazi" because he is almost as bad as the "Teppichfresser". Let's not get started on the Joseph Goebbels type of propaganda Obama has the MSM pushing. Let's not go there yet. Soon though.

Sorry to inflate your rant but let's no forget we were also warned about 9-11 and there had been a terrorist attack previously. Airport security had not even been elevated.

Also to remind you of another thing, it was ONE YEAR to investigate "weapons of mass destruction". The investigation is not even finished yet regarding Libya. The FBI just got there last week.

There were 7 embassies attacked during the Bush years. Terrorists are terrorists. They have been around forever. But if Stevens and the others were in danger, they should have been moved out to there. It was not an embassy but simply a small consulant.

Obama doesn't know what's happening in his own State Department, what the security needs are in an UNstable country in an UNstable region of the world....but he sure knows the back 9 and the comfy chairs on The View, Letterman and Jon Stewart, plus will shoot the breeze with Pimp with a Limp.....

rather our president KNOW what is happening in dangerous countries in dangerous regions of the world instead of trying to 'communicate' to the public thru these HOllywood shows.

We don't need a HOLLYWOOD PRESIDENT, we need a President who will KNOW what's happening!

Failed Foreign Policy = Obama
Failed Domestic Policy = Obama

We need Mitt Romney= Success in business, and true leader!

Mormon Rich Money is a disgusting P0S to politicize the death of Ambassador Stevens. Enought said. If he was genuinely concerned he would agree to let the Bush Tax cut expire in order to pay for the additional security needed.

Mitt Romney's father, George Romney, grew up in HUMBLE surroundings and EARNED his money. He never completed a college degree!

Mitt's Dad, George, worked WITH labor and government during the war, he helped blacks get housing; he helped turned around the automotive industry and REDUCED regulations to let these businesses boom.

Mitt Romney comes from HARD WORKING stock. He comes from a family who had to SCRAP to get by. He comes from a family who work to get businesses and labor together.

George Romney passed those traits onto his son.

And Mitt Romney will do his father proud; working to HEAL America, working to get rid of regulations hindering growth, working on healthcare and housing, working to get PEOPLE working.

Mitt Romney is the right man at the right time in our history.

NO more failures! in our domestic and foreign policies!

Vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

Past history predicts future action.

If one LOOKED and DELVED into Obama's past history we should have KNOWN what to expect! The media did a DISSERVICE to Americans by withholding, failing to produce the necessary information and the hard questioning of Obama. Media has FAILED Americans.

Mitt Romney won't fail Americans.

Romney seems to think as a civilian he is privy to know what is going on in an investigation within the State Department.

If it took one year to say there were no weapons of mass destruction, then why can't even 3 months to taken to investigate the consulant attack? If it wasn't for the election, Romney would not even be talking about this.

Using the lives of these men is tasteless.

This! Mormonism stresses the importance of hard work and family. If only all Christians looked into it our country would be a better place to live. You cannot deny that it has worked wonders for George Romney and his son!
