Number of attacks on U.S. Embassy's and consulates under President George W. Bush - 10.......Total deaths - 60.........Number of outraged Republicans - 0.........
And those total deaths...how many were Americans??????????

Condoleeza Rice testified there were THREATS of 9 attacks before 9/11/01. Non-specific threats for 'in the United States', not requests from the management of the Towers weeks before, or from the Pentagon prior to 9/11/01 of their certainty of violence around them and requesting military assistance. Unlike Ms. Susan (I'm a patsy) Rice our ambassador to the UN, Condoleeza did not LIE about the threats at any time form when the attack was initiated. When the president spoke to us, he did not minimize the attacks as nonterrorist for 2 weeks.

You have no comparison, liebeetle! LMAO

THERE WAS A STAND DOWN ORDER


Though some the details are still fuzzy, someone issued a stand down order that prevented Special Forces from traveling to Benghazi to intervene after the attack.

Hicks, the former deputy chief of mission for the U.S. in Libya and the highest ranking official in the country at the time of the Benghazi attacks, testified that either AFRICOMM or SOCAFRICA issued the stand down order, though he didnt have a name or where the command originated.

Rest assured if someone was breaking into their homes the ivory tower marxists on this forum would be pissing all over themselves while trying to call 9-11. And the drenched marxists would be very upset if the cops did not show because they had a plate of donuts to finish eating.
Let's hope b. h. obama and hilliary get exposed for the worthless self-serving incompetent trash they are.

The 310 million American fools proved that they cannot care less about Obama's and Hillary anti-American and pro-al Qaida policy in Benghazi as long as they continue getting their food stamps and Obama phones for free. In fact, the great truthful and patriotic American whistleblowers proved the fact that Obama and Hillary decided to let the al Qaida terrorists kill our great Americans by calling them to stand down and not to protect the lives of our brave Americans including Ambassador Stevens and three US Seals and Operative. Where is the GOP media that needs to stand up to the lies of the liberal media under Obama control? Evidently, without any communication means with the American people and the world, the same old lies of the Obama liberal media continue to prevent the most critical information from the American people. Even if the great American whistleblowers proved the cover up and stand down regime of Obama when America need to fight and defeat the al Qaida terrorists, the liberal media continue to support the Mozlem Brother scholar Obama and his agenda that Obama already promised the Mozlem Brother terrorists that he has the same interests and that he will never fight them. Where are the GOP billionaires that cannot produce any media that support the truth in reporting in America that fell under the rule of lying regime of Obama and his liberal media?

"At no point did Gregory Hicks or his fellow witnesses Mark Thompson, acting deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism, and Eric Nordstrom, diplomatic security officer and former regional security officer in Libya accuse the president or Clinton of having halted forces that might have assisted besieged diplomats in Benghazi."

Ive been able to read all the cables, Ive seen all the films. I feel like I know what happened in Benghazi; Im fairly satisfied, said Sen. Bob Corker, Tenn., the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

this benghazi business came at a bad time, obama was trying to get re-elected, and didn't need this distraction, it could have been a bump in the road, and besides, his main squeeze said what difference does it make?, so that should close the case.

It was you that I was referring to you. I had copied and pasted a piece on it from FOX News and you claim anything from Fox was a LIE and it was proven to be wrong and I should not be posting old crap (not your word) and I was an idiot, etc .

No, Condy Rice and that whole administration lied about the WMDs to start a war they clearly wanted for no reason connected to 9-11.

Could it be: you are a m/f c/s liar and there were no stand down orders?

Well, of course: you could prove that you aren't a m/f c/s liar and show everyone that link.

I guess... you've been busy, eh?
