Here's a quotation mark excuse for you, dumb dave
"Throughout the night, sources say Americans on the ground in Libya at times felt helpless and abandoned.
"We relied on Washington for dispassionate assessment," one eyewitness told CBS News. "Instead, they [Washington officials] were asking us what help we needed. We answered:'Send reinforcements!' "
But they were told immediate help wasn't available.
Embassy personnel say they repeatedly asked the Defense Attache on site in Tripoli for military assistance.
"Isn't there anything available?" one Embassy official says he asked. "But the answer was 'no.'"
"What about Aviano?" the official pressed, referencing the NATO air base with US assets in northeastern Italy. "No," was the answer."
If they were in Benhazi, then they knew there was no immediate help. Reinforcements did come rom Tripoli.

This was already covered in the news.

Dream on, abdul. Not too much on the uptake, huh?:-)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The U.S. population's distribution by race and ethnicity in 2010 was as follows- due to rounding, figures may not add up to the totals shown:[47]
Race / Ethnicity Number Percentage of U.S. population
White or European American 223,553,265 72.4 %
Black or African American 38,929,319 12.6 %
Asian American 14,674,252 4.8 %
American Indian or Alaska Native 2,932,248 0.9 %
Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander 540,013 0.2 %
Some other race 19,107,368 6.2 %
Two or more races 9,009,073 2.9 %
(72.4%= 63.7% "White + Not Hispanic or Latino" + 8.7% "White + Hispanic or Latino").
Wonder how long it's going to take the black and Hispanic population to figure out Democrats only care about them for their votes and once they have their votes they don't care about them.

It's a damn shame those people had to die because of Obama's campaign slogan 'GM is alive, Bin Ladin is dead'. After all that slogan doesn't work if there is terrorist attack right before the election. They thought they could hide it. We all know that is happened.

This was already covered in the news.
So ambassadors in France get armed security and ambassadors in enemy territory are left abandoned after repeatedly requesting assistance long before the attack?

In the aftermath, investigators identified more than a dozen violent events in Benghazi during the previous six months.

The chairman of the subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations sent a letter to Secretary of State Clinton which listed a number of these events including car jackings, kidnappings, assassination attempts and gun battles. The letter stated, "Put together, these events indicated a clear pattern of security threats that could only be reasonably interpreted to justify increased security for U.S. personnel and facilities in Benghazi."

According to "Benghazi: The Definitive Report," the Regional Security Office in Tripoli "compiled a list of 234 security incidents in Libya between June 2011 and July 2012, 50 of which took place in Benghazi.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see this was a major political coverup on the part of this administration.

Coverups for political gain usually don't end up well for those responsible - even at the highest levels.

The Ghost of Sandra Fluke Is Haunting Rush Limbaugh's Mega-Deal

Rush Limbaugh denied that the advertiser boycott of his show after he called Sandra Fluke a slut would cost him anything, but a year later, it's clear that prediction wasn't true. It has, at the very least, cost him his relationship with the radio network giant Cumulus Media. Limbaugh's show is thinking of ending its contract with Cumulus at the end of the year, Politico's Dylan Byers reports. Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey has blamed Limbaugh for advertising losses, while Limbaugh thinks he's just making excuses. Either way, the Fluke controversy has clearly cost the radio host.

Flack now that you are retired surely you can do something to help, maybe get Walmart to sponsor his show!

The day you nut job socialist facists get a REAL clue-and vote FOR oil independent projects-like KESTONE, then I'll consider what you might have to say.

Until then-GET A CLUE.

(or maybe you prefer trying to import oil in and around the likes of Hezbollah and HAMAS?? Is that it? Then the looneytic extreme fringe drudge igno-sectors of society can have something to ignorantly whine about, when the US is faced with having to deploy yet more troops to hotbed places of violence and anarchy, to deal with terrorist groups running amuck-just to import the stuff? Is that it?)

Do you really think Iran just wants enhanced nuc access in case the oil runs out as well?

No comment on WHY ANY private sector ANYthing is having to deal with the remains of a NON-US citizen terrorist, or where in the hello is the Fed/State government of Mass??

Just shameful, the level of incompetence showing through in that mess.
Unbelievable.

Stupid liberals can provide for themselves, they need insurance companies or the government to do it.
You notice it is an automatic response that it is somebody else's responsibility to take care of them. The problem with this country is self reliance is being deleted from our DNA.

The Democrats would have won with Hillary and probably will in 2016. The Republicans have no candidate worth a damn. As soon as they appeal to their base they lose the majority of the voters.
