Newt is wrong and he knows it.

It seems clear that the President and Biden did not know about any request for additional security, not in the way Newt and other right-wingers mean.

Wrong as Usual.







Biden slammed for insisting Libya consulate DIDN'T ask for more security before deadly attack despite officials' worries


By Hugo Gye
PUBLISHED: 12 October 2012

FALSE: Biden said 'we weren't told' that the consulate had asked for more security

FALSE: Insists intelligence reports linked raid to protests against YouTube video

TRUE: Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in attack, wrote cable warning militias could turn against U.S. on day he died

OPINION: Mitt Romney argues failings show Obama administration is incompetent


Joe Biden is under pressure after insisting that the U.S. consulate in Benghazi did not ask for additional security before it was attacked on September 11 - despite what diplomats and State Department officials have said.

Paul Ryan spent much of last night's vice-presidential debate hitting out at the administration's handling of the Libya assault which killed ambassador Chris Stevens and four other Americans.

The Vice President defended the government's handling of the crisis and denied that the State Department had turned down a request for security reinforcements in the months before the raid.

The lively debate exchange came just hours after presidential candidate Mitt Romney launched his own denunciation of Barack Obama's response to the attack, saying the administration 'failed to grasp the seriousness of the challenges that we face'.


Earlier this week, it was revealed that Stevens himself expressed concerns about security at the facility.

Also, the head of a special operations team helping out with security asked for 'more, not less' reinforcements before the government pulled dozens from Libya earlier this year.


This is a clear sign of the Administrations Incompetence.

Some would like to wait until the investigation is completed. Some would rather just jump ahead and know all about everything.

The Libya Government gets millions of dollars from us each year to protect those Embassies. I think they also dropped the ball. If they are not doing what they are being paid to do, then we should pull our embassies out of those countries.

But I'm not hearing much about the 7 Embassies that were attacked during the Bush years for some reason. Wonder why? hummmmmm

Benghazi Failure Kills US Diplomats/Obama goes to Vegas Fundraiser


'There were requests for extra security - those requests were not honoured.'

He compared the situation in Libya with the heavily guarded American embassy in France as he insisted:'Our ambassador in Paris has a Marine detachment guarding him, shouldn't we have a Marine detachment guarding our ambassador in Benghazi?'

Incompetent Obama/Blundering Biden


Former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich predicted on Friday that Biden's uncompromising statements would 'haunt' the Obama campaign ahead of next month's election.

'Biden on Benghazi was so wrong last night, itís going to haunt them from now until the next debate,' the former House speaker told CBS This Morning.

Romney also launched a blistering assault on the Obama administration's treatment of the crisis as he spoke at a campaign rally in North Carolina.

After an Obama official suggested that the tragedy had been politicised by Republicans, the GOP candidate responded:'I think today we got another indication of how President Obama and his campaign fail to grasp the seriousness of the challenges that we face here in America.'

He continued:'Mr President, this is an issue because we were attacked successfully by terrorists on the anniversary of 9/11.

'President Obama, this is an issue because Americans wonder why it was it took so long for you and your administration to admit that this was a terrorist attack.'

It's not blame, it's factual.

. Unlike Romney, Fox News, Right-wing Media and Issa, the White House does not run on rumors or conspiracy theory; they rely on Intelligence Agencies like CIA, FBI, MI%5.

. Let the investigation prove that White House sat on accurate security Intel for political advantages....

. I'm still wondering, how does Issa get more Intel on Benghazi than the White House?

SCANDAL ALERT!!!!

. Who, inside the Intelligence Community, are diverting Intelligence Info toward Romney Camp and NOT the White House?

Hey LEFTY !

Let's get the complete story out on your claim......OK ?
You are just spouting LEFTY talking points...as usual.

Back to Iraq.
One constant criticism of the Bushie's over Iraq was " Blackwater ".
Do you remember that....LEFTY ?
The complaint was to many Cowboy types hired by the State Dept. under C. Rice that caused to many problems by their Gung Ho shoot first ways and actions.

With the draw down of forces in Iraq many members of congress voted to cut the need for so many Blackwater types being contracted for by the State Dept.and other agencies involved.
The vote was taken and passed however 1 more Dem voted for that reduction than did GOPers. But yes GOPers voted to reduce the number of Blackwater types.

The reduction in contracted security didn't say where , that was left up to the Obamaites and not the GOP and congress.

The Obamaites did hire security in Benghazi....Libyians instead of Americans.

The State Dept had more important things to spend money on a $100,000 electrical recharging system for VOLTs in Vienna for instance.

The State Dept.. has a larger security detail in Paris than assigned to Tripoli , were you aware of that LEFTY ?

I filled in the weedy part of the LEFTY talking point.

It was surprising that after all that time of preparation, Ryan's team forgot to fact check anything he was going to say. Didn't they realize after Romney's failure at the debate that people would actually look to see if he was telling the truth, even if Obama didn't call him out on it?

It is just amazing how many people will believe the GOP even when they directly contradict themselves.
We won't tax people, we will tax people, we won't start wars, we will start wars. No wonder they won't be specific about anything they are going to do. Every time they tell us, it is a contradiction of what they said last time. Romney said he would give a 20% tax cut across the board, but it wouldn't be for the rich, except it would be for the rich, who would lose deductions, except then it wouldn't be a tax cut, except they would pay more in taxes at the lower rate because they would make so much more money it isn't really a cut. But then the elimination of deductions wouldn't be only applied on the rich, but it would be only on the rich.

Your head gets spinning on just trying to figure out what in the world he is talking about. And some people want to say he is presidential material? Beyond bizarre.
