Fox had video this AM as well. NO crowd at all around the consulate in Benghazi. Just a few shadowy figures walking around outside.

This is the most dishonest administration ever. Lucky for them they have their lapdogs in the media covering for them.

When even CBS catches on, it has to be an obvious, stinking lie. Whose head will roll? Hopefully, Mizzz Rice, paid liar to the UN.

“From the MSM....what is going on?”

They figured out that a lie, in the face of the tide of truth, is merely a pile of loose sand that one must get off of if they wish not to get wet.

amazing that CBS would report there was no protest!
-
but it was becoming increasingly obvious.
even one of the dead Americans,
who was online at the time of the attack,
never mentioned any protest.

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers, who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

1979

2012

It is past time to fire Barack and his empty chair and have both of them hit the road back to Chicago!

President Nixon was forced to resign because his administration supposedly lied and tried to cover-up an attempt to sneak a peek at some Democrat documents. This administration is lying about, and covering-up, their incompetence that resulted in the deaths of at least four Americans including a United States Ambassador who represented all of us. Which is worse? Where’s Bernstein and Woodward? Where’s The Washington Post? Where’s Robert Redford?

“Libya's highest politician says the United States government was warned about a pending attack on its diplomatic staff three days before it took place.

Libyan President Mohammed el-Megarif says his government received word of the pending attack and passed that information to US diplomatic officials no later than 48 hours before the attack.”

Though Libya's deputy interior minister described the locating of the safe house as a "critical security breach," the attack may not have been planned for long in advance. The assailants would have had some hours to follow the fleeing Americans and set up an ambush after the consulate attack. "It began to rain down on us," Obeidi said just as the rescue force was preparing to leave. "About six mortars fell directly on the path to the villa," he said.

Every lamestream mouth piece and their alphabet and cable channels sure look evil and stupid now.

Hitley is giving an “intelligence briefing” to the Intelligence Committee” today about the Ambassador’s slaying and his pre-massacre protection etc.

That briefing ought to be a doozie, since she can’t blame “the film”.

RE: "From the MSM....what is going on? H/T to the Drudge Report".
To many people are making comments of lately at even some of the most gross far left news media sites, as to their dis-pleasure with the current administration. CBS. Others do have to consider their revenue stream. And now with the affirmative from the Director Matthew Olsen of National Counterterrorism Center that this was all a planned Islamic terrorist attack in Libya, the Alphabets are going to be hard pressed in trying to put any more spin on it. Of course I say nothing you are not already aware of.

The following links are some I have set aside that help give background as this story continues to get told.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2933548/posts

“Intelligence sources tell Fox News they are convinced the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was directly tied to Al Qaeda — with a former Guantanamo detainee involved.

That revelation comes on the same day a top Obama administration official called last week's deadly assault a “terrorist attack” — the first time the attack has been described that way by the administration after claims it had been a “spontaneous” act.”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2205825/Sufyan-Ben-Qumu-Former-Gitmo-inmate-planned-al-Qaeda-attack-Libyan-consulate.html?ITO=1490

“Revealed: Ringleader behind ‘al-Qaeda attack that killed U.S. ambassador was former Guantanamo inmate handed over to Libya by America’”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2934133/posts

“Two days before the deadly Sept. 11 attack on Americans in Libya, three U.S. officials met pro-government militias working to provide security in the city of Benghazi.”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2932981/posts

“As information on last week’s attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya continues to be released, questions about how much the Obama administration knew and when officials knew it are piling up.”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2932681/posts

“The head of Libya's new national congress has blamed al Qaeda-linked militants for planning Tuesday's deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, raising further questions about the motive behind the mayhem that killed four Americans.”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2932335/posts

“Mystery surrounds attack on Benghazi’s US consulate By Leela JACINTO the 17/09/2012 - 15:18

New reports gleaned from Libyan officials and militia commanders suggest that contrary to earlier accounts, last week's deadly attack apparently occurred at two different Benghazi sites in two stages.”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2933146/posts

“EDITORS’ NOTE: According to a source close to Breitbart News and high up in the intelligence community, the Obama administration's policy following Muammar Gaddafi's death has been to keep a “low profile” during a chaotic time.

For this reason, according to the source, American Marines were not stationed at the U.S. embassy in Tripoli or the American mission in Benghazi, as would typically have been the case. In the spirit of a “low profile,” the administration didn't even want an American company in charge of private security. Blue Mountain, the British firm the State Department hired, was willing to abide by the “no bullets” Rules of Engagement (ROE), so were a logical fit for the contract. These sub-standard protections for American diplomats were signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the ROE.”
