Were any of them denied extra security? How many were covered up so as not to look bad before an election after gloating about Osama is dead and Al Qaida is weak and on its heals?

Yellow belly liberals do their best to change the argument. There have been other attacks even under obama which were not in question.

However, under this attack 4 people died for a political agenda. obama wanted to portray America as now free from terrorism threat since the navy seals got Bin Laden...which is thanks to the work preceded by GW Bush.

Request for more security was denied and denied.(in favor of adding more Chevy Volt charging stations $$$$$ to help with their green energy political agenda). Clinton and obama lied about the weak security. Not once could they say "yea, we dropped the ball. We should have listened. They have been saying for weak they were about to be taken over by the rebels).

When they came under attack what happened? Obama went to sleep!!!! Hillary IGNORED communication about the attack!!!!!

EVEN AT 3AM when everyone was DYING, NO ONE ANSWERED THE PHONE CALL!!!!!!

What next? COVER UP!!!!! It was a video, an AMERICAN!!!! Let's pull him out and arrest him in the middle of night with a hood over his head and massive TV coverage.

There are only 2 people which SHOULD have been arrested with a hood over their head and the name goes by obama and HILLARY!

A military failure, weakness, is one thing. TOTAL and COMPLETE incompetence followed by COVER UP for political gain has only one reasonable outcome. IMPEACHMENT!

obama lied, manipulated, and a general scumbag caused the lives of 4 people. But it is not the first. Just think of all the people that died due to his Mexican gun running program.

Our weak position and lack of direction in Afghanastan has taken more American lives in his first 4 years then the combined 8 years under Bush!

There is only one reasonable solution for obama. Tried for treason!

Had to shorten yours to get mine on - sorry.
There were NO request for help from any of those above since they were spontaneous attacks.
Benghazi requested help and more security and was ignored. This was months coming since the Red Cross and the British left the area.
From 2008 the Dem were in control of Congress:- Many more attacks after the Dems took Congress and Obama took office.
2008
May 26, Iraq: a suicide bomber on a motorcycle kills six U.S. soldiers and wounds 18 others in Tarmiya.
June 24, Iraq: a suicide bomber kills at least 20 people, including three U.S. Marines, at a meeting between sheiks and Americans in Karmah, a town west of Baghdad.
June 12, Afghanistan: four American servicemen are killed when a roadside bomb explodes near a U.S. military vehicle in Farah Province.
July 13, Afghanistan: nine U.S.soldiers and at least 15 NATO troops die when Taliban militants boldly attack an American base in Kunar Province, which borders Pakistan. It's the most deadly against U.S. troops in three years.
Aug. 18 and 19, Afghanistan: as many as 15 suicide bombers backed by about 30 militants attack a U.S. military base, Camp Salerno, in Bamiyan. Fighting between U.S. troops and members of the Taliban rages overnight. No U.S. troops are killed.
Sept. 16, Yemen: a car bomb and a rocket strike the U.S. embassy in Yemen as staff arrived to work, killing 16 people, including 4 civilians. At least 25 suspected al-Qaeda militants are arrested for the attack.
Nov. 26, India: in a series of attacks on several of Mumbai's landmarks and commercial hubs that are popular with Americans and other foreign tourists, including at least two five-star hotels, a hospital, a train station, and a cinema. About 300 people are wounded and nearly 190 people die, including at least 5 Americans.
2009
Feb. 9, Iraq: a suicide bomber kills four American soldiers and their Iraqi translator near a police checkpoint.
April 10, Iraq: a suicide attack kills five American soldiers and two Iraqi policemen.
June 1, Little Rock, Arkansas: Abdulhakim Muhammed, a Muslim convert from Memphis, Tennessee, is charged with shooting two soldiers outside a military recruiting center. One is killed and the other is wounded. In a January 2010 letter to the judge hearing his case, Muhammed asked to change his plea from not guilty to guilty, claimed ties to al-Qaeda, and called the shooting a jihadi attack "to fight those who wage war on Islam and Muslims."
Dec. 25: A Nigerian man on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit attempted to ignite an explosive device hidden in his underwear. The explosive device that failed to detonate was a mixture of powder and liquid that did not alert security personnel in the airport. The alleged bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, told officials later that he was directed by the terrorist group Al Qaeda. The suspect was already on the government's watch list when he attempted the bombing; his father, a respected Nigerian banker, had told the U.S. government that he was worried about his son's increased extremism.
Dec. 30, Iraq: a suicide bomber kills eight Americans civilians, seven of them CIA agents, at a base in Afghanistan. It's the deadliest attack on the agency since 9/11. The attacker is reportedly a double agent from Jordan who was acting on behalf of al-Qaeda.

May 10, Jacksonville, Florida: a pipe bomb explodes while approximately 60 Muslims are praying in the mosque. The attack causes no injuries.

The bombs are discovered as a result of intelligence received from Saudi Arabia's security chief. The packages, bound from Yemen to the United States, are discovered at en route stop-overs, one in England and one in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
2011

Yes I guess we really should drill Hillary on why she paraded around telling the world SHE knew of WMD basses on "HER independent knowledge" as she said. I guess we are going to have to ask Hillary why SHE said that SHE pushed Bush to take action trying to take credit for the Iraq invasion.

I guess we are going to have to ask all those Democrats which pushed for the war then turned their back on our country and troops pointing fingers to others for blame.

They have a lot of questions to answer for their lack of leadership, lack of responsibility and their turn tail yellow belly actions making our missions in Iraq and Afghanistan weak and getting a lot of Americans killed!

Democrats, Agree to go in, change their tune and blame Bush when it is politically advantageous for them. There is nothing worst then a cowardly turncoat! A lot of men have died because of the Democrat Liberal yellow belly turncoat!

Yes indeed...the scum amongst the left has a new hero to worship, the now very crispy c. dorner who murdered a woman during the course of his rampage.

the obama administration does not want to face its lies on benghazi.... repubs are helping them face the music.

Why the deception? Presumably for two reasons. The first is that the true account of events undercut the president's claim during the campaign that al Qaeda was severely weakened in the aftermath of the killing of Osama bin Laden.

The second is that a true account of what happened in Benghazi that night would have revealed that the president and his top national-security advisers did not treat a lethal attack by Islamic terrorists on Americans as a crisis. The commander in chief not only didn't convene a meeting in the Situation Room; he didn't even bother to call his Defense secretary or the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Not a single presidential finger was lifted to help Americans under attack.
