From the dynamic Chris Wallace Interview:

WALLACE: was he in the situation room?

PFEIFFER: he was kept up to date throughout the day.

WALLACE: do you know know whether he was in the situation room?

PFEIFFER: i don't know what room he was in that night. that's a largely irrelevant fact.

Why that is not "IRRELEVANT".

The Situation Room is loaded with the latest electronic recording equipment, and the records of that night can be turned over to Congress to clear up this matter.

"FAKE CONCERN" is at the core of the liberal's political strategy.

Benghazi is a very serious issue that the liberals want to ignore.

The CRUX of this tradegy is that while Americans were fighting for their lives against terrorists, security and military resources were held back from responding.

The Critical Questions could not be more straightforward.

1) Why were available resources held back?
and

2) Who made those decisions?

there have already been 12 congressional hearings on benghazi and Issa found NOTHING.

Benghazi isnt even being pursued by repubs anymore because they know its a dead end.

13 consulate attacks with multiple dead under Bush, and not one conservative cared

Your concern is fake and transparent!

What exactly was Benghazi about? I mean, WHY was that consulate attacked to begin with. Someone needs to explain why this happened, not just what happened.

Who cares about the coverup, we need to know why this incident happened to begin with.

This is Fast and Furios and Iran Contra all rolled up in one.

From what I understand it was about covering up the fact that the White House was involved in arming terrorists in the middle east that American troops are supposed to be fighting.

Also, apparently some shoulder fire rockets disappeared and could possibly end up in the U.S.

The people in that embassy may have been whistleblowers who were targeted to be silenced. That's why the administration may have left them die.

Why isn't anyone in the media reporting on the real story? All we get are bits and pieces of sideshow news.

Rush Limbaugh -like him or not- is right about Obama and his administration committing crimes, standing back, and saying rest assued America we are going to get THOSE scoundrals. Obama has learned to shift accountability away from himself (the real culprit) thus making it look like he is also a victim like the rest of America of his own Admin's crimes.



The IRS story as bad as it is, is a distraction away from Benghazi. Look at the way it is framed -Dems spying on Reupbs -so what? Why isn't the headline simply that the IRS is spying on all citizens Soviet Style -who cares about the left spying on the right stuff or vice versa.

The IRS story could have come out anytime -why all of a sudden when Benghazi was gaining traction? The timing says it all.

Benghazi is really, really, bad stuff -impeachable national security breach bad stuff that needs to be burried.

Are these missing weapons going to end up here in the U.S. someday? Hopefully not! The media needs to investigate. This is the real story. Why doesn't anyone have the balls to report on this?

Obviously you DO NOT understand the issues here. This is about Americans being left to fight and die without aid being sent.

FIRST:

http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2011-05-04...

"Libya reminded the United States on Wednesday that Moammar Gaddafi’s government, not anyone in Washington, was the first to issue an arrest warrant against Osama bin Laden, back in 1998."

"Five months after the warrant was issued, al-Qaeda carried out coordinated bombings on the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, killing more than 200 people."
----------
Bill Clinton was President then; but there was no evidence that he held back any resources after the attack AND you have given No Evidence that Bush did either after any attack.

Second, Benghazi NEVER would have happened if Ghaddfi had not been overthrown.

Third, the evidence is clear that the State Department was engaged in painting a rosy picture of the unauthorized invasion by saying that the "rebels" were strong capable allies of the US AND that could very well be the motovation in withholding US aide in the attack, to protect that scenerio.

Fourth, Even Bob Woodward has drawn a comparison between Benghazi and Watergate, so your thinking that this is going away without the truth being told is foolish.

Fifth, the fact that you support the cover-up brings into question your own morality, making any comments in that arena hypocritical.

Another result of Obama's illegal war in Libya----THOUSANDS of missles unaccounted for, some falling into terrorist hands and possible, as you point out, maybe terrorist were given weapons covertly to overthrow Assad in Syria.

WHAT a TOTAL MESS!!----no Congressional Approval, only UN approval.

your outrage is fake and transparent.

Conspiracy theories involving ghadaffi are just stories from right wing nutt blogs and nothing more. Give me a source for that one that isn't a nut bag blog...we both know its not possible

Benghazi is over. Even the repubs in congress are dropping it now. It went nowhere.

But don't you see? It's genius!
"I don't know about that,"
"IF that really happened,"
"I found out when you all found out,"
"Low level employees..."
Nothing attaches to him! And the low information voter who is spoon fed this crap licks their lips and asks for more!
He is either completely incompetent or an evil genius. Either way bodes ill for this country.
Say what you will about Bush. Everything that happened on his watch, he took responsibility for it. A concept that is strangely foreign to this campaigner in chief.

Madonna was giving him some "kool lessons". Like a virgin he learned the Victor Cruz touchdown celebration from her. You see,"equality" was achieved! This man had a chance to be President to everyone. Instead he is a partisan hack to the max. And if not an idiot or just plain evil, then he has secrets and is under the threat of having them exposed to us all.
