Maybe the truth?



Nah, couldn't be that. There has to be some nefarious plan or conspiracy.

of course the CIA and state department need questions answered so that they can learn from mistakes that were made, but it seems it should be an internal investigation to learn what security measures should have been taken and how to prevent this in the future

Didn't your original OP state you hadn't followed it closely? While that doesn't surprise me, perhaps you should read up on testimony, time lines, ect....

Perhaps you will understand why this isn't a GOP 'gotcha' moment, but an actual scandal.

However, I 'm fully aware you are too stupid and hackish to even do this.

Your posts make me want to riot and beat the shite out of you because you are so dense. Now you would say "free speech" and I would agree. Same with the video. Rioting over speech is what the behavior the rioter chooses to engage in and is not the fault of the person who "offended" with their speech.

Secondly, they knew this was a planned assault and the video had not a damned thing to do with it.

The TRUTH. I am hopeful he will be watergated and sent packing. Yeah I know Biden as president, but would love to see Obama go down for the lying scum he is. Highly unlikely due to the groveling and nut nuzzling of the man.

Simple.

It was either A) A BS story about a videotape told to the american people.

Or B) A huge failure on our intelligence that even suggested it was caused bc of a videotape when in fact it wasn't

That certainly needs some answers.

Why were so many statements made to the media pushing absolutely false information? What was the administration's angle on spouting this shitbag full of lies?

didn't they have people over there saying they were offended by the video. Weren't they tweeting that at the time? It was planned, but the video added feul to the fire.

What surprises me is how most liberals are not up in arms at what this administration is up to. The para-militarization of the CIA and the extralegal operations begun under Bush has accelerated ten fold under Obama and most Bush officials are amazed at how far this has gone shaking their heads that they could have never have gotten in away with these activities. Benghazi lies at the heart of this, of course a lot of Republicans will neglect this aspect.

Fuel to what fire? Did the protesters say "frick this, I'm going home to get my mortar tube..." No. That was the planned attack. This attack didn't happen in Cairo. It doesn't matter what was going on there.

There was no protest in front of the consulate. There was a planned attack on the consulate.

The video was a scapegoat that the administration used. The question is, why did they put so much effort in to it?

Well the president did say on the day after it happened that it was a terrorist action and he also talked about the video.

what would be their angle? What would they have to gain by saying that they thought the video caused the attacks? If they put to much emphasis on the video aspect of it over the preplanned aspect of it, what were they hoping to gain?

If you actually went back and watched his speech,like I did, then you'd know that he really didn't. It was a lie.

The president went to the UN and blamed the video. Why did he lie?

Susan Rice went on 5 talk shows and blamed the video. Why did she lie?

They would gain the shroud of ignorance to having any early warning about the event. They blame it on a spontaneous uprising.

And ze president referenced acts of terror, not that the attack specifically was a terrorist act. By mentioning the video, he wasn't characterizing it as a planned act, but rather on an angry mob's act of terror (if that even).

And then his minions went on numerous talk shows spewing bull shite about the video being the reason it happened.

the very next day in the rose garden he said "the US will not be shaken by acts of terror". So the GOP is quibiling over 'acts of terror' vs 'terrorist attack'?

Look hack, read the testimony and research the timeline.

Your agenda is fricking obvious.
