jNow this is Houston, and theymay not exactly be on Barack's side, I mean some spin, but hey they may be onto something; we heard tips on this before but I never saw it laid out like this before, requests, warnings, req denied, denial, ignored, then afterward maybe some deflections, some misleading, some Cya yeah? ....... US missions in Libya, ambassador Chris request, data, reports, intel- ...... so is this a Gotcha moment?  http://blog.chron.co...pened-in-libya/

About Elijah and me being boyfriend and boyfriend? Absolutely true. We've been together for about nine years. I wooed him. No I just like a lot of stuff - I like that someone says one thing and it becomes fact. It's kind of fun." --Dominic Monaghan in a phone interview with Newsweek while buying DVDs at the store. :D

To suggest that the administration didn't know what we now know they know is an untenable position.
It was the administration who pointed to the youtube video.
Their surveillance drones told them something else.

The back story, which is believable, but unconfirmable through official sources, is that we were recruiting jihadis from the benghazi area to send to Syria to fight as our proxies.

It seems clear to me that this terrorist attack on 9/11 was managed, spun, politically by an administration faceing re-election.
People who want him to be re-elected will defend not only the actions taken, but also the deception, the cover-up, and deride others for wanting to make truth a political issue.
I have no patience or respect for those who engage in such rhetoric.

This is exactly the sort of scandal that should spur expedited review in the legislature.
If there was an effort on the part of the administration to keep headlines a few weeks before an election from reading "Americans Dead in 9/11 Anniversary Terrorist Attack!" then the people should definitely see that, and decide whether or not it changes their voting intentions.

If that isn't the case, then the most transparent administration in U.S. history should live up to their hype, and be fully transparent.
No matter what, if any, the political spin from the White House was on this, it is still a tragedy and a terrorist attack.
And as such, we should not have spent a few thousand on a P.R. advert in Pakistan, nor should we have had our president and U.N. Ambassador apologize for free speech actions of our citizens.
That much happened for sure, even if the administration isn't trying to sweep this under the rug until after the elections.

The fact that 0bama can even show his face in public, speaks volumes about the deteriorating state of our society. None of it good. :(

I actually DON'T think he'll be re-elected...but the fact that his approval rating even makes it to double digits is mind blowing. I'm honestly wondering if his popularity on the left would take a hit if he gave a speech with the severed head of Michelle on the podium? "What's wrong with making a stump speech?" his supporters would no doubt say. :dontgetit:

I would spin that to say this president have no respect for the citizens.
He has flat out lied about a terrorist attack on 9/11/12 and that is plain to see.
Dismissing it as hate fromj the right denies the facts.

How's that "spin" working out for the right, DM?

So, winning an election justifies things, makes untruth the truth, and discredits policies?

Hmm...I have a one word reply: Bush.

lots of pol arguing over 'they should v done more!' , but now the admin have released new report of timeline of reaction to the Benghazi attack, Pentagon, Washington city...
> ' "Unfortunately, no alternative or additional aircraft options were available within a timeline to be effective," the official added.
The Obama administration's response to the attack became a highly charged political issue in the last weeks of the presidential campaign. The CIA, which had a base near the consulate, and the State Department have released timelines on the incident.
According to the Pentagon's timeline, the military's Africa Command, based in Europe, ordered an unmanned, unarmed surveillance drone diverted to the city in eastern Libya just 17 minutes after the attack on the consulate began about 9:42 p.m. local time (3:42 p.m. EDT), the first military action in response to the incident. It took the drone more than an hour to arrive at the scene.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's office was notified of the attack 50 minutes after it began, and Panetta learned of it shortly thereafter as he and the military's top general headed to a previously scheduled meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House.
Obama, Panetta and Army General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, discussed potential responses to the unfolding events in Benghazi during their meeting, which began 78 minutes after the start of the Libya attack, according to the timeline '
