Lies. Nobody believes you. You'll soon be out of a job, and you will be counted in the "recovery" figures.

So, another day, another new version of "the story"--and as presented here isnt even remotely believable. There was no outside rescue effort, that IS fact #1. How about a clear and concise answer on why that is a fact when the battle raged for 7 hours. It is stunning to see the (lack of) media response on this sad story vs the unending media coverage of Valerie Plame yawner. Why would that be? ;o)

Four Americans are dead. Anyone hear from the father of the dead Seal? I'll bet he's not voting for the coward Obama.

If Obama has managed to fool enough people to get reelected, the impeachment hearings should start shortly there after! His glaring negligence in this matter has all but disqaulified him from continuing as commander-in-chief.

Here we are almost two months after the 9/11 attack, and the White House is still stonewalling. Note that this report comes from anonymous intelligence officials, and not as any kind of official release from the White House or State Department. If it were not for the persistent reporting by a few members of the press, our own government would still be holding to the story that it was a spontaneous protest stemming from the YouTube video! You would think there's an election coming up or something...

The righties can see the election slip slidin' away from them. So they turn to ginning up lies about the Benghazi tragedgy, where 4 americans died serving their country. Thing is, kiddies, it's not sticking. You've thrown it at the wall over and over again and it just slides down and lies there in a lifeless heap. So, the only thing left for you to do is try to steal Ohio the way you did in '04. All the exit polls showed Kerry the clear winner and yet Bush took Ohio. Gosh, wonder how that happened. Never mind, I'll tell you how, Kenneth Blackwell and Diebold machines, that's how.

What advantage would Obama have if it were a protest gone awry or a terrorist attack. The White House has no advantage to either story. The questions remain the same regardless of the cause of the attack. Calling this a cover up is quite a stretch. Wether the administration handled the security appropriately is a legit question. But calling this a scandal is pretty desperate.

CIA security officers went to the aid of State Department staff less than 25 minutes after they got the first call for help during the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. intelligence officials said Thursday as they laid out a detailed timeline of the CIA's immediate response to the attack.

If the CIA knew it was a terrorist attack less than 25 minutes after it started.......

Why would Obama claim is was a demonstration sparked by a You- tube video 2 weeks later? Why did Susan Rice go on 5 National TV News shows to tell of the Spontaneous demonstration caused by a you-tube video. In the Biden Ryan debate, Biden responded to the narrative that the inelegance was telling the Administration is was a spontaneous demonstration "Because that was exactly what we were told by the intelligence community,”

Its all a bunch of lies and cover up

Does anyone remember the TV ads that were frequently aired in the 1960s, asking for monetary donations to suppport "Radio Free Europe"? This was to fight, and I remember the word specifically, PROPAGANDA. That was the term used to describe the untrue stories that were being fed to Europeans by their existing media to keep the citizens in the dark regarding the truth about the evil of communism, etc. Remember when Democratic President Lyndon Johnson justified the Vietnam War to, in part, fight communism? I think we need the help of Radio Free Europe here in the US. Our media is licensed to control the message that is delivered to US citizens, and cover up for a government, when they see fit. Does anyone see the danger here?

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!!! Soon we'll get the proof like a Presidential Daily Briefing report stating saying something like "Al Qaida determined to strike the US." That will prove Obama didn't do anything!! Then we'll see the press go after the president. After all, Americans getting killed while an administration snoozed on vacation has never, ever happened before.
