The team, led by Gibson, was in Tripoli to help train Libyan special forces. When the Benghazi attack began, Gibson’s first duty was to protect the embassy in Tripoli amid fears that it also would be targeted. He helped evacuate the staff to a classified, more-secure location. Once he felt they were safe on the morning of Sept. 12, Gibson was ready to rush to Benghazi to help.

One Libyan plane carrying a six-man U.S. security team already had taken off. Gibson wanted his group on the second chartered flight. He called the special operations command center for Africa to say they were heading to the airport.

He was told,“Don’t go. Don’t get on that plane.”

“Initially, I was angry,” he recalled.“Because a tactical commander doesn’t like to have those decisions taken away from him.

hey, idiot.

muslims killed those people on 911. muslims declared war on the usa.

so, how can you place the blame on someone else?

yeah. I can see blame placed on bush and cheney if they didn't do anything in retaliation.

but as we all know, we did just that, muslim. we kicked your azz.

guess what, MUSLIM. we're going to kick more azz. the pain isn't going to stop. you want war. you got it.

as for Benghazi... the cowards of Benghazi didn't do anything at all while those muslims were murdering our people. his inaction makes him just as guilty as the muslims.

the fact that you cannot tell the difference tells me you are not too smart. home taught? right? home taught by a home taught imam. yeah. sounds about right.

hey, bro. I got 72 virgins waiting for you on the other side. want to jump off a cliff for me? I'll send them over to meet you.

muslim = stupid.

They don't seem to remember we saw the enemy dragging Stevens through the streets, his body tortured, and dying. We got pictures during those first hours before Obama woke up enough to know what we had seen. These people lie, and others swear to it, but they aren't bright enough, or fast enough to make their stories ring true.

FYI:

"The Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday released a report on the deadly 2012 assault on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, blaming the State Department, the intelligence community and even the late Ambassador Chris Stevens for failing to communicate and heed warnings of terrorist activity in the area.

The highly critical report says the U.S. military WAS NOT IN POSITION to help the Americans in need, though the head of Africa Command HAD OFFERED military security teams that Stevens — who was killed — had REJECTED weeks before the attack."

"In the month before attackers stormed U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed four Americans, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens TWICE TURNED DOWN OFFERS OF SECURITY assistance made by the senior U.S. military official in the region in response to concerns that Stevens had raised in a still secret memorandum."

241 Americans died in Beirut after Reagan put them there.
Two embassies were destroyed.
One entire CIA station destroyed.

I don't remember any big investigation by the Republicans into that debacle.
No calling for Ronnie to resign.
No threat to impeach him.

Gee, I wonder why not?
Oh sure, it was OK if it happened under Reagan.
But under Obama? Hang him!!!!

Last time I checked the Senate was Democrat. You don't think they would lie to cover for their inept President? Well, they did, Fortunately Americans already have made up their minds about their incompetent leader. I will wait for the report from Congressman Gowdy. I trust him to tell the truth.

"we"?

The DNC Used Benghazi to Solicit Donations

Despite Democrats' apparent outrage over Republicans mentioning Benghazi in connection to fundraising appeals, it turns out the DNC did the same thing.

Democrats were shocked last week that some Republican leadership organizations including the RNC would mentioned the Benghazi scandal in fundraising appeals. NPR called it a "partisan flashpoint." The DNC's chairwoman and communications director both decried the politicization of a tragedy.

But last May the DNC sent out a fundraising email signed by Communications Director Brad Woodhouse which made the political fight over Benghazi a reason to donate.

If it weren't for double standards, liberals would have none.
