<quoted text>Really , whats made up? It came out today by ABC that Talking Points was edited 12 times not the one time Jay Carney lied about. Help was 2-3 hrs away in Tripoli. Wh said it was more than 20 hrs away. Did they know how long the attack was going to last? Why were they told to stand down?
And WHO ordered them to stand down?
That question needs to be answered.

Is anyone really surprised that Obama and Clinton both lied and lied for political reasons. The truth is now starting to show up after how many months of lies by the administration and the main stream media going to bat for both Obama and Clinton. Politics was involved but the politics was Obama fear of acting because if it went wrong the public would have punished him in the election. Clinton on the other hand was trying to save her reputation from a scar that isn't going to get better in time. The Ambassador probably could not have been saved but the last two killed could have. Still the liberals would hang with these two losers regardless.
As the story of the Bengazi cover-up begins to be exposed an grow, journalists and news reporters will have to make an important career decision. Do they report the actual events and truth of what is coming to light or will they continue to hide, protect and defend Obama and the administration. It will be interesting to watch it unfold.

People choose to enlist in the military knowing full well they could get killed. People in the diplomatic corp are not supposed to be tortured, and murdered, because the President is a moron. That is the difference. And yes, it makes a difference if you have character, and moral standards.

Hard to say how any of those four Americans died. Pictures did show a very bloody toilet, bathroom walls, and bloody hand and other blood smears on several other walls throughout the embassy.

you could go by what the doctor in benghazi that treated Stevens said. he died of smoke inhalation. no mention of torture, no rape, none of the hyped up stories that floated around the web. the people that brought him to the hospital did not even know who he was.

Correct, no idea if what the doctor stated is true or not but all that blood was from somebody and I doubt the terrorists got that many papercuts loading up all the papers and sensitive equipment into those SUVs in all those hours.

Copied from the Benghazi investigation.

Would you believe that DOCTOR?????

Before long, embassy workers learned that "the ambassador was in a hospital controlled by Ansar al-Sharia, the group whose Twitter feed said it was leading the attack on the consulate," Hicks said.

Hicks said he received several phone calls about the ambassador saying "you can come get the ambassador, we know where he is," but Hicks was worried about "wading into a trap." Then he said they saw on the same Twitter feed as before that Ansar al-Sharia, an al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group, "was calling on an attack on our embassy in Tripoli."

yes, they did not have the ambassador. he was in the hospital trying ot be saved by this doctor. where did you get the information it was a hospital controlled by this group? the same place you get all your other proven wrong info?

you have continually posted proven wrong crap on this issue. you'd think you'd get a clue sooner or later that you have been use like a gutter waif. I would suggest thinking for yourself, but i am not sure that would be any better, or even a viable option in your case...

Major revelations are coming on Benghazi disaster and Obama while still basking in his re-election mood is going to be hung, drawn and quartered by 'believe it or not' by the main street media. Even the heads of these liberal institutions are smelling the stench of this oh so obvious coverup. They do not want their customers which buy their papers to see them as fools that have bought into the Obama's administrations lies.

Oh how they are going to sell tonage in newsprint with their expose' of this criminal act that the ill fitted Commander In Chief was involved.

No Obama & Hillary lied-erasing talking points that said it was an Al Queda attack to a protest against a Muslim video. Obama has finally said it was terrorist attack, yet the video maker is still in jail.The Military were told to stand down. Those orders can only come from one place.

no one was ever told to stand down until the mission was complete.

earlier you were saying the WH made absolutely no calls on the attack. no you are saying they seem to be micromanaging the whole thing and telling individual units to stand down...which is it?

you are not even smart enough to realize you are contradictiing your own fables...

go back to parroting, you are not intelligent enough to think for yourself...
