It's obvious here that at the very least the talking points (AND THE TRUTH) were changed to allow for the least amount of heat on the Administration and the President who was in the midst of his campaign. At the very least DESPICABLE. Dems better come up with another candidate for 2016. Hillary is toast.
The Obama administration's decision not to help these four Americans for political reasons which resulted in their murders is much worse than Watergate. No wonder they have been working hard to cover this up and trying to silence people who could come forward and tell the truth. Why is the media so silent on the whole issue? If the same thing happened with a Republican administration it would be all over the news 24x7.
When speaking to congress, Then Secretary of State Clinton stated, "...What difference does it make..." Four people died in a tragic geopolitical incident. The administration handled and is handling this poorly. Congress is doing what Congress should do in support of our systems of checks and balances and shared power. The success of the incident will place more Americans, public or private at risk. It does make a difference.
The goptp has nothing. They just blame.
The truth should come out. All of it. Americans died when by all accounts proper action before and during the incident could have saved them, and those responsible for that should be held accountable. But there are unsettling aspects to this beyond the horrific happenings of that day, the most noteworthy of which IMO is Hillary bailing as Secretary of State. Why? A Clinton shunning public office is roughly the same as Paris Hilton entering a nunnery. It just doesn't happen. And for someone who aspires to the highest office in the land to choose to duck the limelight these next four years instead of being front-and-center as Secretary of State speaks volumes. She knows something. And that something will come out in time to discredit her enemies within the Democrat party and thrust her front-and-center about, say, June 2015.

If the blowback from this video didn't cost the four American lives in Benghazi it certainly cost American lives elsewhere in the Moslem world. According to Wikipedia: "The film was supported and promoted by pastor Terry Jones, known for a Quran-burning controversy which also led to riots around the world." The "war" that GWB declared on terrorism, if it is a war, is not over. It might even be considered a permanent fixture in American policy. If so then the rules of war still arguably apply to acts of treason. Aiding and abetting "terrorists" enemies of the current President may simply have been another example of the innocence of "Christians," Mormons or Republicans If it was merely reckless endangerment. But if there was a more sinister coordination by the Romney campaign with other enemies of America as an means to an end then THAT'S what needs to be investigated. It would certainly explain some partisan obsession with this tragedy. It has been said before that the best defense is a good offense ...and where there's smoke there may be arson.
