We DO understand that. What you seem to be missing is that someone issued a stand down order TWICE to the SEALs because they requested permission to aid the ambassador and they were IN COUNTRY. THEY didnt NEED CBA. THEY WERE ALREADY THERE!
In the end, they disobeyed those orders or thirty more Americans might have died. Everyone keeps saying this was a planned kidnapping...except me...because Smith and Stevens were already dead BEFORE the SEALs got there. And the other Americans were still under fire.
The rescue team that arrived from Tripoli was first delayed at the airport and then ambushed. It wasnt a planned kidnapping. It was a planned murder.
And what everyone else seems to forget as well, is that if all had gone according to plan, the entire muslim uprising throughout the ME WOULD HAVE BEEN BLAMED ON ISRAEL.
You all know how obama loves to rub things in peoples faces. WHILE this was going on, obastard actually called Netanyahu on the phone and talked for an HOUR.
YOU asked me what I knew. I am telling you what I KNOW and no one seems to be paying attention.
They were SETTING ISRAEL UP! That was Plan A. Had Walid Shoebat not identified the so-called filmmaker, Israel would have borne the brunt of the US governments anger for creating a video that was made at THE behest of our OWN government. Israel, and ultimately, Netanyahu, who is facing elections himself, would have been blamed for the death of Ambassador Stevens and Stevens would be out of the way because he was becoming antsy. Stevens KNEW he was going to be killed. He SAID so.
His name was on an al qaeda kill list. Retribution in kind for the killing of yahya al libi. But the administrations hands would have been clean. They even tried to continue with the plan AFTER they were exposed.
Why do you think obastard gave that insane speech at the UN? It was to incite the muslims to even more violence and it had nothing to do with being reelected because at the time, he wasnt sure he would be and he was tying up loose ends as fast as he could.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
He’s a COMMUNIST, who cares what color he is
Prayers up for you!
does benghazi rhyme with crazy?
some, if a bit heavily tinfoiled, are saying this was a hub of another pointedly pointless gunrunning operation and big ears was vainly trying to keep it under wraps by muting the military response to benghazi getting attacked.
Dreamer,In 3 weeks this will be gone from everyones memory
Nobody cares. Not the media. Not the American people. Not even the Congress. Just a few of us nut-jobs out here in the cloud.
Well there is a way to stick a hatpin into a balloon without popping it, so....
(the secret is to first firmly apply an X of scotch tape on the balloon where the pin is going to be inserted)
WHERE WAS PRESIDENT OBAMA & SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON when BENGHAZI was going down for over seven (7) hours? - (crickets)
I know but there’s no way I’m putting Scotch tape all over my laptop screen.
Not true at all
By definition disasters have consequences. There have so far been no consequences to the arrogant narcissist and the party of plunder and squnader. A few bureaucrats were killed, so I guess from the viewpoints of their families it's a disaster, but as far as the rest of us go, it didn't affect the outcome of the election, it doesn't prevent the spineless republicans from "putting revenure on the table" (meaning raising our taxes to pay for 0bama's profligate dissapation of our hard earned money), etc. It provides a distraction from the real business of government and that is robbing us of the fruits of our labors so as to enrich their friends and associates.
SO, I ask you, where's the disaster?
“where’s the disaster? ,.....”
Hmmmm.....not really sure....but might wanna talk to Chris Steven’s family and that of a couple former Seals......and those of bunch of active duty Seals....that didn’t return .......
It’s ain’t going away. It’s gonna fester.....and...IMHO....before its all gone....Ms. Hillary is in the Oval Office......
First - to quote, "You MIGHT wanna" read past the first line of my post before you post a response, but I guess that's too many words.
Second - If this is a disaster by your definition then there are 6300 disasters a day happening in the usa (hint, that's how many people die every day). Not every death is a disaster, and I reiterate WHERE ARE THE CONSEQUENCES? Get back to me when you've figured that out. (or not) I really don't care)
Or maybe you think that some government bureaucrat is more important than all of the hard working people whose taxes support him and his ilk, so that his death is somehow more significant.
And "you might wanna" learn a little grammar too
The disaster consequence is that at least some Muzzies feel a little bolder about trying a stunt again which includes something that the news politely called “sodomizing” a US ambassador.
So you're one of those who think that government bureaucrats are more important than the rest of us. Sorry good buddy, I just don't buy it. It's government F'up for sure, but considering what the government does to everyone every day, I just can't agree that it reaches the magnitude of a disaster.
The re-election of that pompous smug narcissistic arrogant ass to the presidency is a disaster. A few murders of government officials in a foreign country? Not so much when weighed against the millions who are out of work because of 0 and his accomplices.
That’s one of OUR gummit bureaucrats. If it ain’t a shot across the bow it sure mimicked one well.
And anyhow you missed the plain English of what I said. The mouth breather with the slicing knife did not say to himself something like “ah, some dispensable bureaucrat.” He said “ah, an AMERICAN OFFICIAL.” If he had done it to Barack Obama with impunity, I’d say that equally emboldened the Muzzies.
What have the consequences been other than a distraction from the real business of government - looting to people it controls and fattening on the hard work of us peons. From that viewpoint it is rather convenient for the government not a disaster. In fact, I just thought of this, but that would explain why the requested protection was NOT forthcoming. The administration wanted a red herring to distract from their agenda of domestic tyranny. Stevens was probably sacrificed to provide an ongoing smoke screen for 0's second term domestic agenda
The idea is it’s come back to haunt him in any Rice nomination attempt- he’s already been told ‘don’t try it’
NO, you say NO! OK then, why are you stonewalling on this SIMPLE little matter, lets move one. Your admitting that we NOW need to get down to the MOST important thing of who gave the order to "STAND DOWN". I agree.
Maybe your government. I'm pretty sure that my government I learned about in skool had constitutional limits and was not engaged in plundering the hard working to buy votes from the lazy, but I could be wrong. I'm also pretty sure that no one asked me if it was OK if they took about half of what I make and use it to give an ever expanding class of parasitical bureaucrats extravagant salaries. I think my country has been conquered by communists and no one ever noticed.
When Kruschev said "we'll bury you," I'm sure he didn't anticipate that silghtly over half of the country would enslave the other half and destroy their freedoms, but he was dead on with communism burying freedom.
Well, I take the older stodgier (and biblical) view that it is yet my, although badly misbehaving, government.
I'm not sure where you get the biblical part, but if the following people shared your view, we'd still be subjects of the crown rather than subjects of 0bama

It might be a Canada-like regime, with allegiance basically titular, but who knows.
But what end justifies what means, that’s a whole nother ball of debate wax. I didn’t have any choice of course about where I would be born.
Well that's going to be the upcoming question. We're currently in the pot with the frog and the water is getting pretty hot already. Do we cook with him or do we jump out before it's too late - if it isn't too late already.
“All good means by all good men.” I’m not sure where in scripture one gets a new philosophy of continual rebellion, but the saner side of America has been amiss in not using the facilities it has had in hand but failed to use. It would be in this case, more as though it were hypothetically possible to have voted King George out but the colonies failed to do that.
Good, re-read it all you want.
