I have to tell you, it broke my heart to see those particular members of our government receive the bodies of dead Americans from the embassy today. The president’s speech was spoken without passion, yet nightly newscasters repeated it like they were auditioning for Patton. What a fraud the news is. To think, the word “trust” used to be associated with them. Mrs Clinton sounds like one tired, old lady who knows the gig is up. This attack was devastating and revealing. I pray for the families. God bless America, please.

If she had... those Devil Dogs would have setup a perimeter defense and if the threat would have been responded to as Bush would have done... they would have had some massive firepower on hand and some attack choppers placed nearby... hidden but ready.

Obama must be protected at all costs, so they need someone pretty high up to take the fall, IMO. It should be Hillary, but I don’t think Obama has the guts to do it.

Especially with all the fake support Bill has been giving him. Bill has egg on his face now and looks like a total fool for supporting BO and bragging on Hillary.

It was Hillary that was always trashing the military and Secret Service personnel assigned to the White House when she and Bill were squatting there. She thinks of them as lower class disposal servants.

Hildabeast's decision is understandable given her self-described history of nonchalant braving deadly Bosnian sniper attacks with no protection.

This intel will be leaked because the obama administration is full of leakers. These are egoists that want to be a part of the story... they leak everything and they will leak this and our enemies will leak also. This is a huge world wide event and all eyes are on obama... and he is way over his head and outside his comfort zone. He has no one of consequence to advise him. He is surrounded by ideologues who have tunnel vision.

The USS Cole was a gift from clinton to mubarak for the egyptair fiasco. clinton needed mubarak to intervene in the pali piece talks with Israel and mubarak refused. Seventeen dead Sailors later, he reconsidered. clinton’s VOA sent condolences to the poor palis who got themselves killed attacking the IDF BEFORE even acknowledging the SEVENTEEN DEAD AMERICAN SAILORS ON THE USS COLE. clinton still didn’t win his coveted peace prize because arafat screwed him huge.
THIS is beginning to look very much like that. Stevens for al libi. The rest is window dressing. Right out of the clinton playbook.

http://www.nytimes.com/1994/06/15/us/hillary-clinton-says-she-once-tried-to-be-marine.html

“Hillary Rodham Clinton said that she once visited a recruiting office in Arkansas to inquire about joining the Marines. ... she became interested in the military in 1975, the year she married Bill Clinton and the year she was teaching at the University of Arkansas law school in Fayetteville.”

“She was 27 then, she said, and the Marine recruiter was about 21. She was interested in joining either the active forces or the reserves, she recalled, but was swiftly rebuffed by the recruiter, who took a dim view of her age and her thick glasses. ‘Not Very Encouraging’

“You’re too old, you can’t see and you’re a woman,” Mrs. Clinton said she was told, adding that the recruiter dismissed her by suggesting she try the Army. “Maybe the dogs would take you,” she recalled the recruiter saying.”

Heh.

I don’t think Col. Hunt was in a position to know this for sure, this is speculation on his part. But I admit he’s making a compelling article because he is sharp with his deductive reasoning.

I heard an ap report and again on Fox tonight that the families of those killed requested that the President not come to where they were or use their presence in any way. They know the truth and they do not want obama near them.

You know this is one thing a lot of Americans do not understand. The amount of fire power the average US infantry unit can call down on a target is pretty incredible.

The failure here is not means, it is the lack of anything resembling political leadership.

We are flying in Marine FAST teams NOW. It is almost Saturday and we are only flying in Marines NOW AFTER the Friday riots?

Can you imagine the media hysteria if this President was a Republican for this level of total incompetence?

After all the bitching about Romney 'outsourcing' jobs, why is Obama (via Hildabeast, but Obama non-the-less) outsourcing the security needs of our ambassadors and sovereign US terratory to people who are clearly of the mindset that the United States is the enemy. What could be more important than having the national interest of a fellow countryman to be protected, as they have been for hundreds of years, by the MARINES (armed, locked and loaded).

They gave Romney hell for something he did not do (Bane outsourced jobs they said), while Obama is outsourcing the security neeeds of the consulate and personel with people who are at war with us, whether the Obamaites admit it or do not admit it.

Romney needs to bring this us again and again and again.

This is from Marine Corps spokesman Captain Kendra Motz:

Perimeter security is the responsibility of the host nation police/security forces. The embassy in Tripoli and the consulate in Benghazi do not have a MCESG detachment. Typically, when a new embassy is established, it takes time to grow a new MCESG detachment. In coordination with the State Department, there was discussion about establishing a detachment in Tripoli sometime in the next five years.(bold is mine)

A US embassy and consulate in a country that's just had a revolution don't have military guards. WTF is going through their heads?!!!!

Here is what needs to be investigated.

Why doesn’t someone just say he plays for the other side?

Or better yet, he already knows exactly what is in the tube.

This arab spring thing is just one of Obama’s orchestrated, choreographed and conducted projects in building and consolidating his North African caliphate. Being muslim, he knows exactly what he is doing, and at America’s expense.

Strategically, his goal was to encapsulate Israel. Soon they will take a run at it and if they find it easy going, then they will take another run at America.

Worst part? Obama has a penchant for dictators and “rulers” and the alien/muslim feels the same should be for America. It will be a bitch prying his ass from the White House. I believe he will attempt to hang on to power at any cost.

We have a Ghazi operating in our white house.

Investigation will bear nothing.... until way after it has happened and he is firmly entrenched as the dicktater of America under marshall law.

yurr october surprise as Obams global strategy unfolds.

No different than the questions about Foster during the Whitewater hearings. Parks Police were still “investigating” so no response.

If you read the article you would find it said that embassy was a new one and it takes a few years to get a marine embassy group there. It also mentions private contractors for security. Suppose they use that kind until the marine group is there. Don’t know if the private contractors were actually there.

Reporters at the briefing pointed out that the officials on that conference call noted that they were giving out preliminary information that might have been wrong and if the State Department doesn’t talk about the night’s events ever again, that wrong information would remain uncorrected in the public sphere.

“The U.S. government is going to be happy to let incorrect information stand?” one reporter asked.

“I will make a personal pledge to you that if I become aware that information we gave that first night is radically wrong in a way that you deserve to know, I will do my best to get that information to you,” Nuland said. “But I have to respect the fact that this is now a crime scene.”

They would have destroyed a republican president by this time. This story will destroy obama... it will not be a fast breaking deal... just look at how the truth is coming out slowly but at a steady pace... hard hit after hard hit... followed by a denial followed by more hard evidence... then a parsing of words and another “clarification” from obama about what we were too stupid to understand that he was saying. He has lied so much for all of his life that he can't keep his lies straight. Rush nailed him on three lies he told about his mother... each time forgetting the previous lie and making up a new one... only they conflict with each other... as lies usually do.

If the Obama admin is now refusing to take any more questions on this, we KNOW something is going on.

This embassy and consulate are in freaking Libya which just overthrew a dictator. It was not in Switzerland! I don’t care how long it normally takes to get Marine guards in place, this is not a normal situation! Especially for the anniversary of 9/11, get some well armed Marines there for protection on the double! It was just so stupid and needless for the Ambassador and the other Americans to have to die because of the ineptitude of this administration! What a disgrace!
