It wasn't terror. It was outrage over a video. Pretty sure the video was a Julia Roberts, Ben Affleck film from the 90s. Just trust your goddamned government and stop asking stupid questions. The media will let us know if something is wrong. Not Faux. The real media at the New York Times and CNN.

Stop Blaming Obama! He's not in charge of the State Department, the Military, or the Intelligence Community! He had a campaign speech the next day in Vegas and needed his rest. You are all just jealous that our Commander in Chief called this an act of terror the day after it happened, the year before that, and the year before that. He called Benghazi an act of terror on every anniversay of 9/11 since he was elected. He is our first psychic President! Thank God Candy Crowley was able to point out your ignorance!

There was no bloodthirsty mob? It was a terrorist attack. That is why Obama is a coward and a liar.

We elect a President that is NOT to blame for anything!!! Imagine how we got to this point!!
Read these replies right here! Example: Bush
was in office for 8yrs., but in reality he might
as well been in for 12yrs.. He has taken the blame for all those years.... How did Obama swing
this deceite and it stuck in order for him to walk
away from everything, includeing the death of 4 of our men and go campaigning as though it wasn't HIS
problem.. TELL US ALL, WHY is HE in OUR WH,
when we haven't seen him do anything Presidental
except spending us into a debt that in reality
can never be paid, because millions are not paying
because no JOBS! NOT HIS JOB or HIS responsability... Just a figure HEAD, thats what
it amounts to. Didn't believe we would do this
and give him a blank check to show the world WE
do not care if we as a country are in debter
prison and we are PROUD of it!! Hard to believe??

WELL its happening right before the eyes of those
who are not blind as to what happened. Simple
people will vote this man back in, and we ask
why?? Answer..........He looks good???
Laugh all the way to the poor hous.. thats the
PLAN... Don't ask to explain this, there is
no SANE answer.

Where's the video, where's the transcript of 'real time' contact with the embassy DURING THE ATTACK

State Department's Charlene Lamb saw it all happening and was communicating with the embassy.

It's outrageous that Obama, Hillary, Susan Rice, Jay Carney LIE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'S FACES and then tell us we didn't hear what we heard.

Is this the type of man people want running our country the next 4 years. What type of coverup will happen during the next tenure if Obama is elected?

Don't LIE to the American people. We understand about deaths in dangerous countries....but blatantly LYING to us OVER and OVER, tells the American people that the President has NO RESPECT for us.

We have a Real Scumbag as President!

He was too Busy to send Troops or even a Drone Strike to Save Our People during 2 Attacks on our Consulate that Day!

The creature Obama needs to be Tried and Punished!

Obama ‘too slow’ to act as drone’s cam captured Libya horror

October 21, 2012

The United States had an unmanned Predator drone over its consulate in Benghazi during the attack that slaughtered four Americans — which should have led to a quicker military response, it was revealed yesterday.

“They stood, and they watched, and our people died,” former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News.

The network reported that the drone and other reconnaissance aircraft observed the final hours of the hours-long siege on Sept. 11 — obtaining information that should have spurred swift action.

But as Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three colleagues were killed by terrorists armed with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, Defense Department officials were too slow to send in the troops, Berntsen said.

“They made zero adjustments in this. You find a way to make this happen,” he fumed.

“There isn’t a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments.”

Fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships — which could have been used to help disperse the bloodthirsty mob — were also stationed at three nearby bases, sources told the network.

When the attack began, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey and Obama's Defense Secretary Leon Panetta “looked at available options, but chose to do nothing but watch Americans get Slaughtered.

Lax security at the consulate was an open secret.

Stevens wrote a cable in June that there wasn’t enough security at the consulate, and he noted there had been a recent spike in attacks against “international organizations and foreign interests,” ABC News said.

The ambassador wrote another cable in August that read,“A series of violent incidents has dominated the political landscape during the Ramadan holiday.”

Stevens said that the incidents were “organized” and that the Libyan security force had “not coalesced into a stabilizing force and [provided] little deterrence.”

Several requests for additional security in Benghazi were made to the State Department prior to the attack. They were all rejected.

Obama is a Real Scumbag!
What Filth! ?

It's truly disgusting how a president that claims to be American could sit by and watch the US Ambassador and other Americans get slaughtered in Benghazi.

It's telling how the media covered this up too. How could anyone believe that we didn't have eyeballs in the air?

Why did the Press refuse to ask for the video early and often?

We have drones flying all over the world and Now, given Obama's Treachery, we even have drones flying over US soil!

Why did the PRESS Refuse to demand Obama tell the truth about his Benghazi debacle?

The biggest dangers lie in the hours from November 7th, to January 20th. The loons will try to circumvent the system with presidential decrees and treaties with the UN. Let it be known though that those that participate in giving the UN control or partial control of our sovernity through bogus treaties and senate finagling will reap their just rewards......

I agree. This was Criminal Negligence by the President of the United States. He should be ashamed but he has no shame.

[QUOTE who="Pamela" I can't stand to even look at part of one show on Fox anymore.[/QUOTE]

Hint. Normal functioning, rational people, don't watch things they can't stand. You hate Fox, don't tune it, but to blame a cable network for virtually everything is fairly unbalanced, INMO. Had it not been for a couple go brave journalists from CNN, one of whom was excoriated by the administration for not keeping the truth secret, and Fox, thie Lybian tragedy may have been swept under the rug until after the election.

I'm sure Romney will be cautiously edified by your endorsement.

Glad to see you're back as Pamela, your other Identities get tiresome to keep up with.

Absolutely on target. Obama wanted his diplomatics missions to appear to be happy havens of Islamic tolerance and love for the US, and by extension, Obama himself, regardless of the actual threat.

The coverup is beyond the pale. Benghazi will become the new bar set for presidential malfeasance and corruption.

The scariest part is a nation of 90 point IQ morons repeating a TV channel thinking they are running a world superpower. You all can't run an ant farm. I want to get out of this nation of idiots repeating hate stuff from TV who never learn one real thing ever. There is NO law that says I have to live in a nation of all mentally ill people and of all people who have IQs about 30-50 points lower than mine and listen to them repeat a TV channel and watch them all fight over the TV channels. I do not have to stay on to watch the U.S. go third world because of the people having such low intelligence. Not my job. I don't want any part of it.
When all those highly educated people in in China and India take your good paying white colar jobs just like they took your manufacturing jobs and all you can say is you hate college, you love being fat and obese, so what, and still repeat Fox TV and all sit back and keep asking for money from the government, for SS and for medicare, you won't get any money and you will not be employable. You'll be dead in the water, third world, and no one on Earth gives one crap.
So Pam, as you continue to receive your SSI (or is it Comp?) benefits and try to get back into your JC, you're still chiding others for doing better then you. Have they sent you anymore letters questioning your status? What about those Pell Grant folks, still bugging you? Are still moving to Germany when you retire from your present entitlement status? For someone who hates entitlements you're sure using the daylights out of them, and looking forward to SS to keep you in a lifestyle that can be best be described as societal taker. Of course, we know Germany won't take you, but that's another story involving your history of psychotropic meds.

I'm pretty sure I have insulated myself against financial ruin. Thanks to Obama and his printing dollars, my lifestyle may be curbed, as the real inflation numbers won't be revealed until after he's gone. Anyone who has paid over 3.50 a gallon for gas for the last four years, or had the price of milk, bread, meat and cereal double over the last four years knows for himself what printing worthless dollars does.

Pamela seems to be a bit of a legend in her own mind, particularly about her own keen mental faculties. While there is no doubt that the teacher's union educations in America have produced a dumbed down electorate, most of this dumbed down electorate aren't fox watchers at all but are of the "low knowledge" (uninformed dumbass) marxist self anointed king obamanation suporter variety who watch the embarrassingly complicit in the tank for the obamanation lamestream media.
Pam has at least half a dozen ID's on Topix. This one is my personal favorite because she's forgotten how much she revealed in the early days of posting, then goes bat crazy when she's reminded of it.

It's almost too easy.

I don't have to ever go into Topix ever again and I do not ever have to let anyone online abuse me ever again. Do not have to do so. All you Americans have to offer is abuse. Go shove it up your mentally ill asses. I'm so out of here, it's not even funny. Now all kill each other and eat each other up alive. You're all dead people and no one wants to live around this ghetto sh!t, NO ONE.
Oh Pam, please don't go. You're my one isle of levity in these dark times of Obama's reign.

I know you'll be back, if you're not still here posting simultaneously under one of your other names, but I genuinely enjoy the ravings of Pamela the original.

Oh yes, what do you think of me callings out your sock puppets without actually using your name? I'm trying a kinder, gentler approach, but dear, the support of one sceen name by another screen name in the same thread is just tacky. A "bright" chick like you can do better...see ya soon!
