No one said Bush "covered them up," only that attacks on our diplomatic facilities and personnel are ongoing, and that 'outrage' over this attack is fake, partisan and Republican in nature. Those are the facts, like them or not (in your case, I'm sure the answer is 'not').
There's as yet NO evidence of a "coverup" of the Benghazi attack, or anything but confusion and a series of dumb mistakes on the talking points worked out in response to the attack. It was not a spontaneous demonstration due to outrage over the video, but an attack by a terrorist group which may or may not have taken advantage of said demonstrations elsewhere.
Clear now, or do you need another mallet blow to the head?:)
the outrage is real,Obama allowed his own citizens to be murdered by Muslim savages,not happy with that Obama and his regime invented a bogus "spontaneous protest" to COVER UP the fact that he sat on his hands while Americans died.

curious,you say "It was not a spontaneous demonstration due to outrage over the video"

yet Susan Rice one of Obama's mouthpiece's was keen to tell the world it was,in her own words

"“What happened this week in Cairo, in Benghazi, in many other parts of the region was a result, a direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the U.S. Government had nothing to do with, which we have made clear is reprehensible and disgusting.”– Susan Rice, 9/16/12

OK Ace i know you struggle so ill give you a clue,the big give away is when she says "a direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated"

you understand the meaning of the words "DIRECT" and "RESULT" don't you?

yes there was reaction in some of the Muslim world,none of it "spontaneous"(is it ever?) and the Benghazi attack was a planned and coordinated TERRORIST ATTACK.

so why was Susan Rice telling the world that Benghazi was a spontaneous demonstration over a Mohamed video?

why did Obama and Clinton make a advert apologizing to Islamists about the video which was broadcast in Pakistan?

awwww Ace come on!

as you know i don't expect much from you,yet you never fail to fall short of the very low bar i've set for you.

if my statement was in fact made up of "pathetic, slanderous lies" why not refute them with facts?(yes Ace,that's a rhetorical question again,we all know you can't do anything of the sort)

as you're not very comfortable with normal debating techniques,ill drop it down to something more you're speed.

YES, MULTIPLE CHOICE!

is it true that Susan Rice appeared on no less than five Sunday shows stating that:
"according to the best information available at the time, the Benghazi assault had been a spontaneous reaction to an obscure online video mocking Mohammed, rather than a planned terrorist attack"

answer:

A.YES IT IS TRUE.

B.NO IT IS NOT TRUE.

OK Ace you have a 50-50 chance of being right on this one don't blow it!

good luck.

While it's your blame for our President that's really "despicable," at least you acknowledge that terrorists committed the crime. That's more than most of your Rightie cohorts are willing to do.

What exactly do right-wing anti-American Obama-blaming conspiracy nuts think was "covered up" in regard to the Benghazi attack?

That it happened? No, we knew all about that right from the start.

That four Americans were killed? Ditto.

That terrorists committed the attack? No, we knew within days.

The investigation? LOL...would that be one of the NINE investigations of the attack?

That State was at fault for security failures? No, Hillary ADMITTED that to one of the Congresional investigations.

It's really starting to get ridiculous, Righties. It's SO transparent, the REAL goal of your attacks here.

If it was your child that got KILLED you would care I think. But probably not !!! You sound like a old bitter no account that cares for nothing or nobody. Just go crawl back in the hole from which you came from and see if anybody cares if it happens to you. Give no sympathy get no sympathy.
