Now they're saying they don't know how Amb. Stevens' body got to the hospital?

What's up with that? I thought they said considerate Libyans brought it.

Perhaps new info is about to be revealed...why else would State change their story. Autopsy results maybe?

Part of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's morning after speech:

"But we must be clear-eyed, even in our grief. This was an attack by a small and savage group – not the people or Government of Libya. Everywhere Chris and his team went in Libya, in a country scarred by war and tyranny, they were hailed as friends and partners. And when the attack came yesterday, Libyans stood and fought to defend our post. Some were wounded. Libyans carried Chris’ body to the hospital, and they helped rescue and lead other Americans to safety. And last night, when I spoke with the President of Libya, he strongly condemned the violence and pledged every effort to protect our people and pursue those responsible."

Exactly. According to ABC Hillary's story has now changed.

Makes me think some incriminating evidence is coming regarding Stevens which Madame Witch cannot hide.

To late... AP is reporting that " The State Department said Tuesday it never concluded that the consulate attack in Libya stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam "

I agree with the poster who compared this to the Ewing Dream episode...
It ought to be hard for Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, and the other members of this gang that couldn't shoot straight, to walk back their remarks ... But I guess they will just claim it was a dream... And of course the ABCNBCCBSCNNPBSNYTWASHPOST lackeys will play along....

Obama and Hillary both, as with most socialists, think they are going to “teach the world to sing in perfect harmony”, lecture the world and tell it what’s what. When it doesn’t work out like that, they fib and fabricate, hide any pertinent documents, spin stories, then dress up and go to state affairs where their affirmative action jobs give them a patina of false importance. They believe their own press.

Hillary is only where she’s at because she hitched her wagon to the shooting star that is Bill Clinton. Now they both can see the end nearer than the beginning; and they’re really going nuts determining they’re going to finally be IMPORTANT, and recognized for their importance. Only, there’s that pesky thing called TRUTH they’re going to face sooner or later.

Hillary leaked this to cover her ass. Rice will eventually
Admit she was parroting the story the Admin. dreamed up and sent her out to repeat for 9 days.

Proof, Zero himself repeated it after Rice’s last press showing and he repeated it at the U.N. along with the 70,000 dollar ad buy apologizing for the video!

They are working with their media (they excluded Fox New, lol) to come up with an “old news” story line in order to offset Romney’s exposure of their failed muslim brotherhood foreign policy, treason and lies. It will be Romney’s or the Tea Party’s fault before the week is over.

As if things weren’t bad enough with Obama State Dept. slackers letting the jihadists kill the Americans in Libya, the lying State Department Marxists had to blame and advertise a an anti-Mohammad you-tube video no one heard of, so the rest of the Muzzies could kick into hate-America rage riots and threaten American life and property all over the world.

In response the commies suggest we suspend free speech to solve the justifiable Muzzie rage problem and bring “pieces” on earth. So now, according to the Obamacommies, we are endangered by both the first and second amendments.

These people are the enemy within. They have set up a world war to occur by placing radical Muslims in Middle East power. They inflitrated the US government with jihadists, too, which is a problem for the Great Satan on a good day.

What have we done?!

Salafists urge ultraconservative Islam on post-Arab Spring governments
Washington Post ^ | Oct. 7, 2012 | William Booth, Karin Brulliard and Abigail Hauslohner

Posted on Sunday, October 07, 2012 12:54:36 AM by Brad from Tennessee

CAIRO — The elections that followed the Arab uprisings elevated Islamists out of decades of repression and into the region’s most powerful posts. Here in Egypt, a former prisoner became president.

But to Salafists, adherents of a puritanical form of Islam who have embraced the country’s new freedoms with gusto, the emerging Islamist order has a serious flaw: It isn’t nearly Islamist enough.

“They say that the people do not want sharia,” said Gamel Saber, a back-slapping Salafist activist who said he dreams of a day when his country’s courts will fully implement Islamic law. “But that is not true. They are ready.”

Saber’s dream is shared by millions of allies across North Africa, and that reality is proving to be the most serious challenge yet for the months-old governments struggling to find their feet in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia.

As moderate Islamist leaders in all three countries begin to craft post-revolutionary constitutions, the Salafists in their midst are pushing — sometimes at the ballot box, sometimes at the point of a gun — to create societies that more closely mirror their ultraconservative religious beliefs and lifestyles.

The formidability of the Salafist awakening and the problems it poses for the new governments are unexpected. While challenges from remnants of the old regimes and from disgruntled liberals were widely anticipated, the Islamist bona fides of those who took power had been considered beyond reproach. All have vowed to restore Islam to its rightful place at the center of society after decades of marginalization.

But many Salafists, emboldened by what they see as growing public enthusiasm for their cause, have denounced the new leaders for being too timid in injecting Islamic thought into long-standing domestic and foreign policies. The time for more dramatic action, they say, is now. . .

You maybe joking, but notice the heavy lifting the WashingtonPost is doing... “ultraconservative Islam” ..... The ‘TeaParty’ in some political circles on the left and the middle are considered ‘ultraconservative radicals’. And notice that word ‘puritanical’, which is used as a pejorative in some form when the liberal mind despises another principled stand.

Maybe, but the American Left—including the elite of the news media—have a greater affinity with the Salafists than they do with me or you.

I remember during the Cold War scholars would sometimes describe the Soviet leadership in terms of liberal or conservative.

I see your point. But the purpose of this piece is to identify for somebody the 'troublemakers' that is keeping Obama's ArabSpring from its supposed purpose of 'peace'.

I remember during the Cold War scholars would sometimes describe the Soviet leadership in terms of liberal or conservative.

But this is the charity wing (not scholars) of the D-n-C, whose purpose is to pave, repave, or build new roads for liberals in elected office.

Did Hillary set up Obama?

Did Obama set up Hillary?

Did both of them set each other up in different perspectives, so neither can out the other without bringing themselves down?

Or were neither in control?

It's amazing how truely STUPID Americans are.

Obama, America's first Muslim President, did everything he could to support the Arab Spring. Arab Spring is about overthrowing governments and replacing them with radical Muslim terrorists, not about democracy and freedom.

Mission accomplished in Egypt. Muslim Brotherhood is firmly in control.

Gov't overthrown in Libya with use of US Military. Now the terrorists need to get power there too.

Next the Gov't in Iraq needs to be overthrown. Hussein removed US troops so that terrorist could get started on that country.

Things are just starting in Syria.

Hussein is taking advantage of the biggest fools in history. Americans will never believe that Hussein is working for the Arabs, and terrorists are his employer. Say CONSPIRACY and everybody stops thinking. Keep thinking it could NOT happen in America.
