The families of the victims do. It matters because the American people were intentionally deceived to believe it wasnt a terrorist attack.


She said it was heavily armed extremists who assaulted the embassy and killed our people

We can argue semantics if you want, but I think most people are imagining similar things when they hear "terrorist attacks embassy" and "heavily armed extremists attack embassy"

Where exactly is her sense of integrity? Why hasn't she come out and said, "I was used as a tool to spread obviously false information, and I don't like how my reputation has suffered for it"? Something just doesn't pass the smell test.


Because when stuff happens and we're collecting information and doing investigations and the American people are demanding answers we send people on television to say what they know to the best of their knowledge that simultaneously doesn't compromise the investigation and every spokesperson basically hedges constantly because information and understanding changes and usually people don't go all crazy because they've watched the news before.

Well I don't have a list of times in front of me at the moment. Are you really disputing that the CIA did this?

I would imagine the CIA has been giving people talking points...for 100% of the time the CIA has existed.

The CIA was probably giving people talking points in advance of the CIA existing just so they could convince people the CIA should exist.

I completely agree.

Then "someone" send out talking points that they knew were a lie

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to dismiss this. 1 post.

I thought the election would tamp down the looney tunes. Boy, was I wrong.

Of all the people I don't understand being upset with about all of this Susan Rice has got to be number 1.


The point in questioning Susan Rice is to find out if she knowingly put forth a false narrative. If so, that's important, and it begs many other questions (for what purpose, who told her to, etc.)

quote:

Has anything ever been so idiotically blown out of proportion?



If this was a coordinated lie to the American People, you could make the case not only has it not been blown out of proportion, but that the attention has been noticeably minor given the significance of the lie.

Are you basing your opinion on the legitimacy of this report on your in depth knowledge of CIA internal procedures?

Does anyone really care whether we call it an act of terror, a terrorist attack, or an attack by "extremist elements with heavy weapons."



If the Obama administration failed to follow protocols as it relates to the response to a terrorist attack, you are damn right I care...and it begs a whole new set of questions.

Assuming Dan Rather didn't put that together for CBS, why is the Obama administration so fricked up after 4 years? Why does Rice have to be protected from the Obama administration?

But what does this have to do with Susan Rice? She was just talking to the American people and there's no protocols there. All of those different terms evoke the very same image and understanding. She said "heavily armed extremists," and was pretty decisive about how even if there was a protest, the attackers were another group entirely.

I think the whole Benghazi thing is blown totally out of proportion, but I get it. Susan Rice I don't get. Her comments, at the time she gave them, were directly in line with everything being said by everyone.

It's just like everyone decided Susan Rice was the one we were going to yell at.

Was not the question I asked. If the CIA was ordered to issue ""Talking Points"" I guess under those circumstances they'd issue talking points.

Is that what happened?

If so . . .
Who gave the order?
Who wrote the CIA TP's?

Does CBS have answers to these questions?

Have they even asked?

If not, can they be considered a serious news outlet anymore?

Pretty much spot on with what she said on the Sunday shows
Decatur, did you actually see any of the Sunday morning shows?

Also, nothing CBS says on this subject matters because CBS has no credibility left. They're in the tank for Obama. They ignore stories that would damage him and report stories that help him. Where is the truth? Who the hell knows. Nothing they say can be taken at face value.

Convenient.

Decatur, I'd like to think you're smart enough not to buy the shite you're being fed.

But I guess not.
