Now the finger pointing begins over who is going to take the blame for the Administrations inaction after the murder of four Americans in Benghazi. The six plus hour attack was being monitored by a UAV gathering intelligence and streaming it back home via live video stream. The line that the military couldnt be dispatched because of the lack of intelligence is no excuse. If not, what was the drone doing? Flying airshow maneuvers? Leaked State Department emails exposed the fact that they knew when the attack began, how many attackers and by who. In a sporting analogy, somebody dropped the ball.
The State Department knew the consulate was under attack and two hours into the attack they briefed State Department Officials and the White House who attacked the facility. They knew it was the Libyan militant group Ansar al-Sharia. In a political ploy in an attempt discredit Gov. Romneys criticism of the Egyptian pre apology of a video that no one saw tried to link the video to the Benghazi attack. Even though Ms. Clinton accepted non-responsibility and promises to review everything to be sure were doing what needs to be done in an increasingly risky environment. When she accepted this job Hillary Clinton intended to serve 4 years but no more, Instead of taking the fall for this fiasco she now plans to stay at State for another four years. Hillary will most likely have the last word with the panel she set up to investigate the Benghazi attack. She and the President will most likely blame the liberals favorite target: the military and intelligence agencies.
To excuse his inaction Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta told reporters he couldnt deploy forces into harms way without real-time information.

Now our favorite rino is adding his two cents.
Meanwhile On Twitter:
“obama...................YOU MURDERED THE FOUR AMERICAN HEROS IN BENGHAZI, YOUR STUPIDITY DOES NOT WASH, YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!!!!!! “
Dropping the ball is a forced accident. The ball being intentionally thrown away is more like it.
Dropping the ball is a forced/unforced accident. The ball being intentionally thrown away is more like it.
The mere fact that an ambassador was under attack , the ‘Commander-in-Chief’ was notified via his ‘situation room’. It is required ; it is a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)
He was awake at the time of the attack (arround 4:00PM, Washington time)and had full knowledge of the attack .
It happened on his watch.
He is acocuntable !
The fact that he chose to take no action is beyond reprehensible !
The fact that Panetta said at least we didn’t spill any Libyian blood defies logic.
Laser painted targets are not innocent bystanders !
I have come to the conclusion that the reason they did not send in a rescue squad was because they did not want anyone to survive.
No rescue meant no witnesses. No inconvienient testimony.
They spent 6 hours concocting this silly video excuse while Americans were being killed by terrorists on American soil. They were too busy covering their assess to bother with trying to stop the terrorists.
Can you imagine what these criminals would do if there were a nuclear middle headed towards America? They’d just sit around and look for someone else to blame. These criminals have to be removed from power.
P-Marlowe~:” I have come to the conclusion that the reason they did not send in a rescue squad was because they did not want anyone to survive.

And the delay of getting FBI investigators for 27 days also means that they didnt want the incident to be honestly investigated.
4 Died - Obama Lied
Me, too, P-M. Me too.
It was a long, hard road getting here, and I have as many doubts as ever, but I am actually wondering if Obama doesn't get charged seeing US heroes die VIA his drag-on-war in Afghanistan and VIA instances that become available such as Benghazi and Ft Hood.
I think that the decision to not use the military was made at the 5pm meeting with Obama, Biden and Panetta, all Democrat politicians and all old enough to remember Carter’s loss in 1980. The Democrats think Carter lost because of the failed Iranian hostage rescue attempt. They did their political calculations. Yes, some Americans would die, but Obama must be re-elected because he answers to “a higher calling”. And that ought to bother every American, because the American he and the Democrats are willing to let die for their “higher calling” just might be you....or your Dad....or your Mom......or your Son......or your Daughter.
Check the keyword for Benghazi....absolute torrents of articles and statements.
