"Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse, until they surrounded the consulate's safe house." Safe house? Funny how the hoodlums knew exactly where the Ambassador and other Americans were. From what I heard today there was a heavy duty door they terrorists couldn't open so they set the place on fire. Spontaneous? Don't think so.
Basically that's the story. We've been told lie after lie. It was a movie. No. It was a terrorist attack. They knew. If this was a Republican administration, the media would snatch the handcuffs from the Capitol Police and arrest the President themselves. Instead they've played along. Now it shows they were the puppets...Jay Carney should resign. Hillary should resign. Susan Rice should resign. Obama get the UHaul ready. Even Big Bird can't save you from this. Even though I'm sure he will find a way to blame Romney.
During the Bush administration faulty intelligence detail was the still the fault of Bush. Hollywood, Cindy Sheehan, Dick Durbin (our soldiers are Nazis), Pelosi, Reid, and others wanted to try him for treason.
But where are the liberals now? They are eerily quiet. Is the Ambassador's life not worth fighting for the truth? Me thinks...the media is in a pickle. You can't blame the "Man Messiah" or you'll be called racist. You can't blame Hillary because she's the darling and wife of Bill the playboy Clinton. Romney wasn't in Libya when it happened. Can't blame him. So what's the media to do?
Let's place bets on who will get the blame? Not who ought to get the blame but who will get the blame? Anybody want to bet $5 on Biden? They could get rid of him that way. Sorry I know, death isn't funny.
WASHINGTON (AP) — "All was quiet outside the U.S. Consulate as evening fell on Benghazi and President Barack Obama's envoy to Libya was retiring after a day of diplomatic meetings.
There was no indication of the harrowing events that night would bring: assailants storming the compound and setting its buildings aflame, American security agents taking fire across more than a mile of the city, the ambassador and three employees killed and others forced into a daring car escape against traffic.
Senior State Department officials on Tuesday revealed for the first time certain details of last month's tragedy in the former Libyan rebel stronghold, such as the efforts of a quick reaction force that rushed onto the scene and led the evacuation in a fierce gun battle that continued into the streets. The briefing was provided a day before department officials were to testify to a House committee about the most serious attack on a U.S. diplomatic installation since al-Qaida bombed the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania 14 years ago.
The account answers some questions and leaves others unanswered. Chief among them is why for several days the Obama administration said the assault stemmed from a protest against an American-made Internet video ridiculing Islam, and whether the consulate had adequate security.
The officials, who spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly on the matter, said Ambassador Chris Stevens arrived in Benghazi and held meetings on and off the consulate grounds on Sept. 10. He spent the night, and then out of prudence spent the whole of the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks meeting people inside the compound, an enclosed area about 300 yards long by 100 yards wide, with a 9-foot outer wall topped by barbed wire and augmented by barriers, steel drop bars and other security upgrades.
When Stevens finished his final meeting of the day, he escorted a Turkish diplomat outside the main entrance of the building. The situation was calm, the officials said, and there were no protests. Five U.S. agents and four local militiamen were providing security.
A little more than an hour later, around 9:40 p.m., everything changed.
