So if he had any idea that it might be a planned attack related to Al Qaeda, then why was he going around blaming it on a video? If there some uncertainty or confusion, shouldn't he have kept his mouth shut?


Because he's done one good thing - allegedly killed Osama Bin Laden. If Al-Quieda strikes the US 2 months before the election it's not politically convenient! Blame it on YouTube and you can run on your record against terrorism!

I agree with you. The Democrats started this round of shame with all the inconsistencies with their story. No doubt a ploy to whitewash any bad news concerning the attack by terrorists.

I find it fitting that the Obama Administration would immediately blame America (or Americans) for the actions of the dogs in Libya. Apology tour.

At the exact same time that the attack upon the consulate. simultaneous violence and demonstrations were occurring all over the region. Ansar al Sharia posts something on Facebook claiming responsibility for the Benghazi attack. It's leader in later statements has, by the way, referred to the video as at least partial motivation and called for a similar attack on Tripoli.

The situation is not black and white.

You have a copy of this letter?

Oh it's black and white alright. A U.S. consulate was attacked by terrorists on the anniversary of 9/11. The ambassador and his staff requested additional security umpteen times. Obama and his administration either ignored or denied those requests.

Its VERY black and white that the President mentioned the term "Acts of Terror" the next day, now claims he called it a terror attack with that statement then STILL flew to Vegas for a fundraiser.

Its VERY black and white that Hillary Clinton the same day called the same event a "VIOLENT ACT" and never mentions terrorist,terror and anything else that would link to what the President said. Now we know that they both knew what was going on real time. So how are they not on the same page for weeks? Its a fricking disgrace.

What letter? The guy I'm talking about who is sitting in Libya as we speak was quoted. I'll loof for the quotes.

In the meantime:

eyewitnesses have said there was no peaceful demonstration against the video outside the compound before the attack, though a crowd of Benghazi residents soon gathered, and some later looted the compound. But the attackers, recognized as members of a local militant group called Ansar al-Shariah, did tell bystanders that they were attacking the compound because they were angry about the video. They did not mention the Sept. 11 anniversary. Intelligence officials believe that planning for the attack probably began only a few hours before it took place.

Is it fair to link the Benghazi attack to Al Qaeda?

Only very indirectly. Ayman al-Zawahri, the leader of Al Qaeda, had called on Libyans to avenge the killing of a Libyan-born Qaeda leader, and American intelligence officials have said they intercepted boastful phone calls after the assault from the attackers to members of the Qaeda affiliate in North Africa, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.

Lets ALSO not leave out that Susan Rice claimed just this month that the reason she claimed that it was a spontaneos attack sprung from the protest was due to Intelligence points.

how the frick does these emails,drone video and the new facts not totally debunk what she was saying she used days later for information?

Its lie after lie being thrown at us hoping to see what sticks.

That's a fact. I just wish Obama would stop playing those politics and be honest with us, for once.

I'm not flaming. I'm being serious. I think you should go back and read the e-mails and intelligence reports from the ground more carefully. The lines are not as bright as you portray.

This is hitting Clinton-esque measurables of slimeballness.


I haven't really had much of a problem with Obama's foreign policy dealings until this. I really am starting to hate him though. I guess this is how libs felt about Bush.

I misread what you posted.

Intelligence officials believe that planning for the attack probably began only a few hours before it took place.


Something like this:

Terrorist: (bang) (bang) what's up bro?
Bystander: just chilling
Terrorist: (bang) we fricking (bang) these Americans (bang) up
Bystander: cool, you know it's 9/11 right?
Terrorist: (boom) (bang) no shit? (boom)
Bystander: yep, you heard about that video?
Terrorist: (papow) yeah, is it any good?

Homesick Tiger you are spot on.

The administration, the Dems in turn, want to water down Al Qaeda attack. It is a propaganda attack as much as a terror war.

One party wants to keep terrorists and the word 'terror' out of the headlines.

The other wants us to know terrorism is alive and well, and that war is inevitable.

So it was clear enough for the President to call it a terror attack the very next day but not clear enough for Rice to know 7 days later what was going on?

Which is it? Did the President call it a terror attack or not on 9/12?

If he didnt then there is a whole other ball of cover up and lies being told.

If he did then Rice is obviously telling a lie.

You cant have it both ways.

I hate to say this because it is many times a weak argument, but you are dwelling on semantics in different contexts. To this day, we don't have all of the evidence in as to how far in advance this "planned" attack occurred or how much of it was inflated from what was happening in the streets. Clearly it was organized. But to obsess over precise language used Susan Rice or Barack Obama at certain times is to really ignore the larger picture of what's happening in Libya.

Then why repeatedly state the video caused it as FACT? And simply not repeat, "we don't have all of the evidence"?

I believe the cover up, which is worse than the crime, is because the arms used in the attack were likely provided by the US. I believe this is something that is likely to come out in the next few weeks.

Because if you look at the totality of circumstances and comments, it becomes clear that a) the video clearly could have been a factor in the timing of the attack and b) Obama has never said it was the only reason for the attack in Benghazi. By mentioning the attack and the video in the same interview on Letterman does not mean what some of you imply.
