Keep getting your news from the first thing that pops up on google buddy, I figured you conspiracy theorists were better than that!

Dig deep for the conspiracy! The American deaths were what Bush and the military covered up, labeling them as killed in action, deaths related to military actions, or even a few were mysteriously reported to their families, as killed days later in car accidents. Etc..

You don't find it the least bit strange that in these bombings and attacks, where sometimes dozens of people were killed, there just happened to be no Americans on the sight? That's when these people would choose to attack?

I have a friend that was stationed at the embassy in Pakistan one day, then the attack, then 3 days later, his wife was notified he'd been moved to Baghdad where he was killed in action! She had video conferences with him every few nights, and no reports of going to Baghdad.

Weird that with all the troops there in Iraq at that time, they would move one marine from an sf unit in Pakistan to Baghdad?

But you know, it was a white guy in the oval office and they never lie!

Sheeple!

Really? Did those terrorists infiltrate the FBI and hire a well known biographer to seduce the director of the CIA?
Then did they tell the FBI that the only person they should tell was the republican house majority leader?
Then let that majority leader decide that since the adulterer is a very well known republican leader and figure head, maybe it would be best for the "party of family values" to not have another scandal on their hands, right before election?
Oh oh oh!! Or maybe it's Obama that planned the whole thing with the terrorists? Because that way he could control the Benghazi information? Even though there is still nothing stopping the adulterer from testifying, and now the administration doesn't even have any authority over him to keep him in line.
Or maybe Obama accepted the resignation of a man that made a few to many personal mistakes, and wanted to concentrate his time and effort on his personal life? But I guess that's just to far fetched right?
Hahaha. Good one! Come on trailer trash / righties and other so-called patriots, old white men and t-baggers. Explain that.

Republicans just stop the double standards.

Yes there were at least twelve terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities abroad during the Bush administration — the most of any president in history:

2002 - Nine people killed by bomb blast near US embassy in Lima - seen as attempt to disrupt forthcoming visit by President Bush.

2002-2006 - Karachi consulate attacks: three separate attacks killed 18 people including an American diplomat

2002 - Two Marines shot, one killed in Kuwait.

2003 - Riyadh Compound Bombings kill 9 Americans, among 35 others.

2003 - Three American diplomats are killed by a roadside bomb targeting their convoy in Gaza.

2003–present - Damascus terrorist attacks: American interests in Syria targeted radicals.

2004 - Civilians Nick Berg, Jack Hensley, and Eugene Armstrong kidnapped and beheaded in Iraq.

2004 - Paul Marshall Johnson, Jr, civilian working in Saudi Arabia, kidnapped and beheaded; five other Americans die in attacks in Saudi Arabia in 2004.

2007 - American embassy attacked in Athens, Greece.

2008 - John Granville, US diplomat, assassinated in Khartoum, Sudan

Does that add perspective to your constant bullshit?

Where we're all you people when Bush was covering up over 40 deaths, at multiple attacks on American embassies and consulates over seas?
Why is it now that you seem to give a shit about the lives of our citizens?
Forgive me if I think your outrage is just slightly politically motivated.
The only difference between the actions
Bush took, and Obama, is the color of the skin and the party affiliation of the guy in the white house.
So is it ok with you if people get killed while we have a white President? Or a republican one?
It's sad that at times like these our country used to come together, and now you use it as an excuse to hate.
I hate to burst your racist bubble But ANYTIME a president tries to claim ignorance about what happens in his administration as high in importance as an attack against its people or embassies, He (the President) must be held accountable, When Bush was Pres. It was all “His” fault, With Obama it is everyone but “his” fault. And why is it that pinheads like you always claim Racism when someone questions Obamas actions?? The only racist here is you

How many of these incidents started out with the Ambassador Requesting more assistance and security for the embassy, How many of these incidents were Military commanders told to stand down “so as not to inflame the situation”,How many blamed It all on a YouTube video .

I don't think the fact are all out yet. There's been conflicting statements, stories and time-lines on this since day one. I have to wonder what the CIA actually knew about it in advance, during and after the incident and what "they" actually told the Obama Administration and State Department. Trust me there will be enough blame to go around and I'm sure its going to fall far short of another Conspiracy by the Obama Administration OR failure in leadership. As tragic as this was -$hit happens -- and its not always what it seems. But you righties are quick to put,'well this had to be Obama's fault and oh my gawd it is ANOTHER conspiracy by Obama and the libtards."

Geezus give it a rest till the new guy in the CIA testifies.

Just wanted to show how easy it is to make up a line of bullshit that sounds plausible!

I guarantee if I sent that to FOX, and told them it was Obama, they'd run with it before thinking twice, well, or even once, it is FOX after all.

And yes! Americans did die in those attacks! That's just not debatable, sorry for your luck.

"Your sources for this information about Lybia are the same sources that told you that Romney was going to win the election in a "landslide". Did it ever occur to you that your sources might be incorrect? Probably not, but it might be something to think about."

I like this little quote from another poster.

The truth test:

any story that comes out substitute President Bush instead of President Obama

If Bush was president during Benghazi murders how would the press treated the story?

If Bush was president during this Petraeus mess how would the press handle the story?

In every incident substitute Bush's name and then realize that President Obzma gets a pass from the media.

Americans have certainly lost their confidence in the media.

The 2012 election is over, deal with it.

PResident obama received favorable press, blacked out stories regarding issues with his administration and policies.

Democrats gained senators and congress members. Deal with it!

Look to 2014 for a shellacking and perhaps a capture of the senate!

2016 look to have a mixed ticket of ethnicities/race.

For democrats, I think that Hillary and Deval Patrick could be on the ticket with Obama campaigning and bringing in 'his' ground game.

for republicans, I think a latino will be on the ticket, for sure.

Obama won in 2008 with a 10 million popular vote edge and in 2012 with a lousy economy, alienating rhetoric the margin was cut by 8 million.

It's time to recapture the senate in 2014 and the presidency in 2016.

and raising the taxes on the wealthiest does NOT solve our economic problems. It's entitlements, entitlements.

Oh, it's her fault. Not the general's.

He commits adultery and it's the fault of someone else.

I was watching FOX today, and that's their take on it too, and their track record for being right is pretty exemplary.
