Still lying, Susan? Well, you got your promotion so say whatever you want. Team Obama is above the law.

“The information I provided — which I explained to you was what we had at the moment, it could change, I commented that this was based on what we knew on that morning — was provided to me and my colleagues and indeed to ­Congress by the intelligence community,” she said. “That’s been well-validated in many different ways since. And that information turned out in some respects not to be 100 percent correct. But the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false, and I think that’s been amply demonstrated.” This so-called leader lied when she knew the truth on the Sunday morning talk shows. Obama lied when he knew the truth when he blamed the video when the dead bodies where brought back to the US & he gave that speech in the plane hangar. Then he lied in front of the UN. Clinton lied when she said something like, " through no fault of our own, but because of a disgusting video." Misled America? You have to be brain dead to believe this sorry example of a leader in the White House. Can't wait until she's gone, indicted or both.

ALL U.S. personnel on the ground (Embassy and CIA) called in they were under attack. No one on the ground reported any type of a demomstration but rather an attack. The situation room back in Washington watched the attack real time via satellite. Four Americans dead including the Ambassador despite numerous warnings in the weaks leading up to the attack which the State Department ignored. All of this on Obama's watch with only weeks until the election...an election many were viewing to close to call. We better spin it...and spin it they did.

"You have to be brain dead to believe this sorry example of a leader in the White House." No, we were brain dead to believe Bush and Cheney who told us there were WMDs in Iraq and then started a war that killed over 5,000 Americans and countless innocent Iraqi civilians. Yet Bush and Cheney are a right-wing heroes but Susan Rice and/or Obama should be indicted because four people were tragically killed by mob violence across the world?? This anti-Obama craziness is tragic for America.

The President, before the United Nations, before the American public, including various upper level staff member referenced a video movie by an American as the trigger to this event. All, obviously miss repented the situation. Secretary of State Clinton lashes out to Congress, "What difference does it make?" Well, four people lost their lives, thus it makes a big difference to the family of those who perished.

the House Armed Services Committee concludes that there was no way for the U.S. military to have responded in time to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya to save the four Americans killed that night. In doing so, the report debunks entirely a right-wing myth that says the White House ordered the military not to intervene.

Fox News cited reports of a stand-down order no fewer than 85 times during prime-time segments as of June 2013. As the new report — which the Republican majority of the committee authored –makes very clear in its findings, however, no such order ever existed. “There was no ‘stand down’ order issued to U.S. military personnel in Tripoli who sought to join the fight in Benghazi,” the report says, noting that the military was not positioned to respond to the attack.

why does Faux Noise lie?

windigolake-- Did you see me defending Bush/Cheney? And neither are heroes to me. They are/were clowns. More inclined to pull the trigger than think. So my question to you is, "How do you feel about the fact that our commander in chief & secretary of state lied to us numerous times?" We couldn't handle the truth? Politics & an election soon? Why would they not tell the truth? The most transparent administration ever. You betcha....
