US, Libya differ on accounts of Benghazi attack (Rape story confirmed soon)
AFP ^ | 9/16/2012 | Andrew Gully

Top US and Libyan officials offered starkly different accounts Sunday about the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that left the ambassador and three other Americans dead. The US ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said it began with a spontaneous protest over the anti-Islamic video that had already set off similar protests in Egypt, leading to the storming of the US embassy there. "People gathered outside the embassy (consulate) and then it grew very violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately are quite common in post-revolutionary Libya and that then spun out of control," Rice told "Fox News Sunday." "But we don't see at this point signs this was a coordinated plan, premeditated attack. Obviously, we will wait for the results of the (FBI) investigation and we don't want to jump to conclusions before then." Announcing the arrest of 50 suspects, Libya's parliament chief, however, blamed the attack on a few foreign extremists who he said entered Libya from Mali and Algeria and pre-planned it with local "affiliates and sympathizers."

In Paris, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told French TV that the American ambassador died under "absolutely atrocious conditions," suggesting new details could soon emerge.

Looks like there may be something to the Ambassador being violated story that came out after the attack.

My guess is if it happened, the Administration would be DESPERATE to keep that info from being confirmed.

The fact the State Dept has now put a complete blackout on any info about the Libya attack, and seeing Susan Rice disgrace herself on the talk shows, I have a feeling a lot of damning details are trying to be covered up.

Muslims + Democracy = CHAOS. You CANNOT tame these animals! Stability is only possible with oppressive regimes.

“Susan Rice, said it began with a spontaneous protest over the anti-Islamic video”

Sure, they were just walking by and just happened to have RPGs slung over there shoulders when a protest started. They joined in and the rest is history. What a bunch of BS.

Despite what stooge Rice says, Obama and Hillary are responsible for the deaths.

Hillary and Bill are will known for losing the truth in videos and lies.

"Most people don't bring rocket-propelled grenades and heavy weapons to a demonstration," McCain told CBS's "Fact the Nation." "That was an act of terror. And for anyone to disagree with that fundamental fact I think is really ignoring the facts."

McLame makes uncharacteristic unlame statement.

The Obama Administration has lied repeated about this(and everything else). The MSM has lied repeatedly about this. People have to learn to think for themselves and not swallow every lie fed them by Obama and the MSM.

Especially if Obama and Stevens had alone time. Considering the untimely deaths of gays from Obama’s past this may not be so strange.

Would Hillary's State Department have us to believe that the following movies invoked violence in the Mohammedan World?

1983: "A Christmas Story" must have triggered the Beirut attacks.
1985: "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge" brought us TWA Flight 847 attack.
1988: "Rain Man" brought us Pan Am Flight 103.
1993: "Jurassic Park" inspired the first attack on the World Trade Center
Also in 1993: "Mrs. Doubtfire" must have led to the Mogasishu events in Somalia
1996: "Independence Day" enraged the Middle East and brought us Khobar Towers attack.
1998: "Armageddon" led to Nairobi events.
2000: "Mission: Impossible II" seemed fitting in encouraging the attack on the USS Cole (Tom Cruise makes me mad, too).
2001: "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" must have set off the attacks in the US using airliners.
2002: "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" set off the attacks in Karachi.
2003-2008: Harry Potter must have been a spark that set off radicals in Iraq and Afghanistan.
2009: "Avatar" obviously set off the radicalized Army regenagade that influenced the Ft. Hood massacre.
Then of course, there no ties of violence associated with "Team America" in 2004...

Seems senseless to have an FBI team go to gather information if we already know what happened and the Libyans are liars.

Sent a contemplative pixie to Butt Fetish World Headquarters with no guards, no bullet/blast proofing, ignored gov’t warnings as well as the, “we’ll blow ya up” warning PAMPHLETS that the nuts left for them, and then he was attacked by FOuR HUNDRED butt f’ers with RPG’s.

Preeeety amazing...ESP when you consider his (also gay) boss is sleeping with a leader of the Muslim Beotherhood...

Not here in TX.

Now, how long will be set idly by and watch this insanity before elected officials say “enough”.

We still have laws on the books. We still have courts. We still pretend we have the ‘rule of Law”.

What is happening is clearly unconstitutional, against the law of the land and against the very nature of this nation.

The day he was “corronated” I made the following statement:

“Welcome to New Kenya (Africa U.S.A.) where the law of the jungle has replaced the Law of the Land.”

OLD RUN AND HIDE is getting his girls out there to cover for him. This woman is lying to her employers and should be immediately dismissed.

The total reason why the administration insists that the attack was spontaneous is because of the election. If people come to realize that it was premeditated, they will also know then, that his foreign policy with regard to the middle east is an absolute failure. If the people he backed to overrun Lybia are plotting against him, he is a complete fool. Keep insisting it was spontaneous in spite of the information from the people who know what happened Obama.

With the media covering for him, it will be a piece of cake for His Highness to cover it up.
