Watergate is simply a hotel where a burglary occurred. The lies and obfuscations that followed brought down a presidency.

Benghazi is the scene of a slaughter. The administration had knowledge of the eroding situation and previous attacks. They had knowledge the consulate was under attack from the consulate itself.

They lied and obfuscated following the attack. They had the Ambassador to the UN lie on national television repeatedly. The POTUS lied to the UN. The SofS appeared with the POTUS to lie on national television. The SofS paid 100k to produce and propagate a lie on the WWW video. The president's press secretary repeatedly told the WH press corps a lie.

The administration framed an American citizen to take the fall for the massacre.

Had it not been for CNN, the lies might have been kept quiet until after the election.

As we learned in Watergate, career government employees will not take the fall for elected politicians. Whistleblowers will continue to unravel the lies.

If Obama loses in November, the nation will be spared another president being exposed for lies and obfuscations.

President Obama didn't know about...
1) requests for more security
2) calls for help
3) CIA told to stand down
4) Terrorist attack or "video"

Or he lied

So, did he lie, or was this administration inept?

If this was Clinton OR Bush, the media firestorm would be unreal.

He's at least inept and indecisive. Whetther he lied about anything or not remains to be seen.

bin Laden's death- any president who had that intel would have given that mission the green light. As it was, it took him three times to give it.

Drone attacks against al Queada- like other policies from previous Administrations, he's kept them going and increased them. After the last four years of failed foreign policy and indecisiveness does anyone think that he wold have started such a program from scratch?

The Defense secretay demoted an Admiral, and a General. It appears they were going to go against the Stand Down orders, and the President got wind of it, and stopped it. He is as guilty of murder as his Muslim friends,

You really need to keep up cupcake. There were overhead assets, ground assets, the contact directly from the Ambassador and the ex seal that died rescuing 30 people......you should give up before your treasonist ass gets found out.

A couple of more points.

The operators on the roof of the CIA Annex that were 'painting' targets, were not designating just to be designating them. They had to have been in communications with an aircraft. So, either the drone was armed, Rear Adm. Gaouette had an F-18 overhead (from the Stennis Strike Group which is on Station in the MED)or GEN Ham (AFRICOM Commander)had a AC-130 Spectre on station. Either way you don't use that kind of laser designator on a whim, because it gives you away.

Also, both Rear ADM Gaouette and GEN Ham were both relieved of their commands. Gaouette was relieved on 27 OCT and Ham was relieved the 11 SEP. Both of them would have been inthe Chain of Command that received those calls for help. If anyone would have had C2 (command and control) of a rescue mission it would have been one of those two or both.

Its a pretty good bet that assets were in place for a rescue mission. It's a pretty good bet that both men were relieved for disobeying orders. The only person who could have stopped the rescue mission from going forward at that point would have been the President.

BTW, you used quotation marks in relation to me...please provide the post number from which you quoted my words.
Go home, junior, this discussion is for adults, not OWS infants.
Yes what to choose, Illegal detainment, and treatment that would not be tolerated in any detention center of any kind anywhere in the whole USA, or righteous execution of a legally declared enemy of the state.
It is a tough choice, especially for a Right winger. Fairly easy for me.

LENO:'Don't ask, don't tell is back ... Obama's new policy for questions about Libya'...

On Tuesday night’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on the Fox News Channel, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that major news networks might have secret emails proving that the White House canceled plans to assist the besieged U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.
Gingrich said that the bombshell emails could be revealed within the next two days.
“There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” Gingrich said.“But they were a group in real-time trying to mobilize marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House stand down and do nothing.
