Well, yeah, what with the Head of the Dept of State pulling out the security and the Prez not going to intel briefings and the locals being allowed to take down the US flag and put up theirs.

Hillary held a celevation of Ramadan at the State dept today.

that’s procedure for these folks.

It’s no surprise to anyone who works for the Embassy.

Retreat!?

How about Hillary’s APPEASE, APPEASE, APPEASE?

That’s the alternative if you wotk for her.

U.S. President Barack Obama's administration said it had nothing to do with the movie, which is little more than an amateurish video clip

Good to see the MSM finally starting to describe the movie this way.

Reuters is out of this cover up at least for now.

What a mess.

Now we have Hillary partying with the Libyans.

Shame!

There’s a hole where her conscience should be.

The same for ANYONE who votes for this administration.

John Bolton was saying on Friday that the only reason the military is over there now is to get people out.

Too late for anything else because it is in too many places to fight it.

Obama = America in retreat!

They are Quoting Obama

Administration must have done a polling or focus group study that revealed majority of Americans aren't buying the blame the movie BS that the MSM is pedaling and maybe the news of the warnings and statements from authorities that the assault was preplanned is getting out

Barry being snubbed by Sudan, that’s got to sting. Actually it’s probably the outcome he was hoping for even though it makes him look like a fool.

but...but...but Jay Carney said over and over it had to do with the movie trailer and not US policy or Barack Obama himself. Has Jay Carney apologized or even acknowledged that in fact it has nothing to do with the movie? Has he has to eat any crow yet publicly?

No one cares.

Have you noticed any objections from our esteemed reps?

"Ambaassador Christopher Stevens, along with three other Americans, were killed in Tuesday’s attack.

Reports have also circulated that the attack in Benghazi was an inside job and that the U.S. Department of State knew of the attack up to 48 hours ahead of time, yet chose to do nothing.

Adding to the chaos, sensitive documents have apparently gone missing from the embassy following the attack, potentially putting many in danger."
