Let's put this news in perspective:
The Obama WH knew within two hours of the Libya attack.
So in essence, they watched our Ambassador and 4 other Americans be murdered.
Did you rest well President Obama after hearing that?
Update 1:24 pm: Obama replies: Went fundraising in Vegas. Had a great time!
When will the nightmare end for the families of Ambassador Stephens, Sean Smith, and the others?
No matter what Gloria Allred or Donald Trump attempt today:
4 Americans are dead!
And our President and his buddies have lied to the American people. Romney missed an excellent chance to confront a sitting President on his incompetence and naive attitude to extremists. If he thinks the media will do that, well look no further than our own local media...the one that suggested social media doesn't give facts.
If coverage of this had been sufficient in the Herald and thousands of other small town papers, the truth would be more known. I realize, before you naysayers go defending, that local politics are the focus...but you can't ignore national security either. And is it too much to ask that our local papers give us as much information as possible? No. Therefore, the blogosphere, facebook and twitter, make up the difference! And we do a very fine job, thank you!
This story is not going away. No matter what the WH claims. The current occupant believes America produces terror. The extremist is a film maker. The spontaneous demonstrators just happened to have grenades. Really? Time to really fess up PBO. Tell us what you really think. Seems to me "PBO spiked a football and can't seem to catch it".
Oh by the way....4 Americans are dead!
White House told of militant claim two hours after Libya attack: emails(Reuters) - Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show.
The emails, obtained by Reuters from government sources not connected with U.S. spy agencies or the State Department and who requested anonymity, specifically mention that the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia had asserted responsibility for the attacks.
The brief emails also show how U.S. diplomats described the attack, even as it was still under way, to Washington.
U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Benghazi assault, which President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials ultimately acknowledged was a "terrorist" attack carried out by militants with suspected links to al Qaeda affiliates or sympathizers.
Administration spokesmen, including White House spokesman Jay Carney, citing an unclassified assessment prepared by the CIA, maintained for days that the attacks likely were a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim film.
While officials did mention the possible involvement of "extremists," they did not lay blame on any specific militant groups or possible links to al Qaeda or its affiliates until intelligence officials publicly alleged that on September 28.
