Not sure of you question. That info was discovered by the 9/11 commission and was reported by Time.

Kudos to CNN for actually reporting something


quote:

Petraeus is testifying because he wants to clear up "a lot of misrepresentations of what he told Congress initially," said the source, who is directly familiar with the ex-CIA chief's analysis of the situation.

He knew "almost immediately" that Ansar al-Sharia, a loosely connected radical Islamist group, was responsible for the attack, as suggested by multiple sources and video from the scene, said the source. At the same time, a stream of intelligence -- including about 20 distinct reports -- also emerged indicating that a brewing furor over the anti-Islamic video preceded the attack.

So it took you two bites at the apples to answer my post?

I don't care if you disagree, but don't deflect with shite that is wholly unrelated. And it's clearly a terrorist attack. CLEARLY. UNEQUIVOCAL. And they fricking knew. If Susan Rice didn't know and spouted off lies just because she's a mouth piece, frick her. I don't want that in positions of power in our country. You shouldn't either.

This being a terrorist attack based on the information we now know they had, it is. As Dianne Feinstein said, when you have RPGs and mortar attacks, you have a terrorist attack. Why is this such a problem to admit? Seriously, why is it so difficult for you to admit?

He, and his minions, tried to tell us it was something other than what it was. They were more interested in his re-election, and they attempted to "spin" the attack as a "protest" to cover his arse because he went back to sleep after he was briefed on what was going on. He didn't direct ANY support assets to the consulate and he didn't send ANY assets to engage the attackers.


He left them "high and dry".....

Obama and his people tried to portray this attack, where 4 Americans died, let's not forget that, as a reaction, however impromptu, to a video. This in a country where 98% of the people don't even have the means to watch the video. Obama, Rice, Petreus, et al did this because to tell the truth, i.e. that Al Qaeda is once again ascendant and that they want us out of the Middle East, would have gone against the spin of the Obama campaign which was that Al Qaeda is on the run thanks to Obama. Obama, Rice, Petreus, et al hid the truth from the American people to ensure Obama's re-election. They’re still hiding the truth; still obfuscating and the media are doing their part to help.

This isn’t about politics for me. You weren’t around here for the first Gulf war, but I said then that the WMD stuff was a ruse, a pretense, and that Bush and Colin Powell were lying to the American people. I took a lot of heat from the conservatives on this board, but I was proved to be right. I’m right about this too. This is even more obivious than the situation in 2003. I can't for the life of me figure out why you're trying so hard to knight for a bunch of rich politicians who are clearly lying to the American people.

I repeat my quote from earlier: The first casualty of war is the truth.

But that's what the intel pointed to, right?

Anyway, I really think we'll know just about everything there is to know about this by the time all of the investigations are through. Hopefully.

re: Petraeus knew "almost immediately"


But why did the intel point to that when there was so much information to the contrary? And as we now know, that intel was utterly false and they actually had real time information that was in direct conflict with the story. So why is that? And why is Susan Rice so unequivocal in her statements that day? Because she read a line from the CIA? Why is the CIA giving talking points in the first place?

Obama's first political prisoner is sitting in jail in Colorado right now. He is supposedly there for another reason, but he wouldn't be there except for Obama's disingenuously targeting him.

There is nothing to gain. R's are shamelessly politicizing the deaths of 4 people who served their country. I think its pretty clear the R's were hoping for a "Jimmy Carter" type moment to affect the election, but the public didn't buy their bull shite. Now the R's are all pissed and are going to stamp their feet and cry because they've lost touch with the country with their message and rhetoric. Personally, I hope the R's keep it up - they'll just lose the house in 2014.

So asking questions because false answers were given equates to politicizing? fricking hack.

I know why couldn't have the president come out and clearly label it an act of terror? He could have said something like this the very next day

quote:

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.


Oh wait he did say that. LINK
