State Department: Stop asking us about the Benghazi attack (Coverup begins)
FP ^ | 09/14/2012 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 09/15/2012 9:31:02 AM PDT by barryobi

The State Department told reporters Friday afternoon that it won't answer any more questions about the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans until the investigation into the incident is complete

"I'm going to frustrate all of you, infinitely, by telling you that now that we have an open FBI investigation on the death of these four Americans, we are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this this happened -- not who they were, not how it happened, not what happened to Ambassador Stevens, not any of it -- until the Justice Department is ready to talk about the investigation that's its got," State Department spokeswoman Victorian Nuland told reporters late Friday afternoon.

"So I'm going to send to the FBI for those kinds of questions and they're probably not going to talk to you about it," she said.

All aspects of the attack, including what led up to it, its causes, the identity of the perpetrators, and the circumstances surrounding the death of Amb. Chris Stevens and the other three Americans,are off limits for reporters.

They know the facts are completely damning, so they will stonewall until after the election, at which time Hillary will retire from politics. Her career is over as a result of this either way, but Obama still has an election to win, so he puts Holder in charge of the coverup.

If our Congress does not launch immediate hearings, subpoena the State Dept officials, and expose the truth, they are just as complicit in this criminal conspiracy.

Excuse my ignorance, but isn't the FBI's investigative focus primarily domestic? Remind me again where the Libyan embassy is.

TRY COVERING THIS UP YOU LOWLIFES! It's out there for all to see. They murdered this man, dragged him, stripped him from the waist down, lifted his body up, and sodomized him!! THIS IS OBAMAS fault and we all know it. God bless Ambassador Stevens. He was sacrificed for obamas ignorance.

Cops talked to him and he’s not under arrest, hasn’t been charged with anything.

That photo doesn't support your contention. In the photo you posted his shirt is up around his neck. That's not the "from the waist down."

Your claim about what happened to him are unverified reports from Lebanese sources. They may be true or they may not be true, other reports differ markedly, so we as yet have no proof what exactly happened other than he is dead and the death was caused by Islamic nutjobs.

Hummm.



Sept. 11



That is all the "answer" I need for a complete understanding of the attacks.

State Department lies are not required.

Who are the survivors, and where are their accounts of what happened? How many Libyans died?

I guess you believe they just killed and dragged the poor mans body around for awhile. Apparently you also believe these innocent savages wouldn’t do anything to his body. You do not sodomize someone while they are fully clothed. Even if they had stopped at dragging the poor man, that alone is disgusting and depraved.

They have hung people from bridges, burned them, beheaded them, but never sodomy huh.

*******

According to the Lebanese news organization Tayyar.org, citing AFP news sources, U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, who was killed by gunmen that stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday, was reportedly raped before being murdered. A google translation of the report says.

A news report made by the Libyan Free Press is also reporting that Ambassador Stevens was sodomized before he was killed:

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/09/horror-lebanese-reports-us-ambassador-raped-before-his-murder/

****************

I belirve these reports because I have seen and read of the depravity and savagery of these people. You believe what you want, and I will believe what I see.

Well, well, well. Yet another new low from this administration. Apparently, they are no longer accountable to the people they purport to “serve”.

No surprise from this bunch.

Eviction is in order.

Yep, they’ll get around to launching hearings right after next weeks’ “election break” when they reconvene in November for their lame duck session.

That is, all who have been re-elected; the lame duckers will be on trips to determine the globull warming impact on the blue footed booby in the Galapagos Islands, or native language trends in Tahiti.

Sorry, but it don’t work that way.

“We the people of the United States”

We pay your stinking salaries. You don’t get to hide. If you had acted in a competent, confident manner, we might could cut you a little slack. But, you guys make The Three Stooges look like they could do a better job than you at foreign policy, so no slack. We’ve got at least four dead Americans including a United States Ambassador who represented all of us. And since he represented me, I’ll return the favor and represent him. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED!!! Don’t you take the lead from OLD RUN AND HIDE, our President. This stinks and it needs sunshine on it to get rid of the bad smell.

When the investigation is over Eric Holder and the FBI will claim it was all because of Libyans had uncontrolled access to guns. In an effort to keep this from happening in America all guns will be confiscated.

The investigation further revealed that the confused mobs yelling Obama,Obama we are all Osama really meant to say Romney.The presidential hopeful who caused the unrest to spread to thirty other countries by criticizing Obama’s foreign policy.

It was also uncovered that the perpetrators drink tea so they must be part of the Tea Party.
