Skip to comments.Obama's Libya Lies Collapse: Senate Democrats Demand Answers
Posted on 09/27/2012 8:25:23 PM PDT by Justaham
The wheels appear to be coming off a two week attempt by the Obama Administration to cover up its fatal security failures at our consulate in Libya and to cover up the very fact that this was a successful pre-planned terrorist attack that cost four American lives, including that of our Libyan Ambassador, Christopher Stevens.
Not only has the scandal picked up steam in the mainstream press (Jake Tapper's ABC News report tonight is a must-watch), but high-ranking members of the President's own party are now demanding answers. This includes the man most often cited as a likely Secretary of State should Obama win a second term, Senator John Kerry:
Senate Democrats joined Republicans Thursday in questioning the Obama administration's handling of the fatal Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya and why the administration refused for days to acknowledge that it was a terrorist attack linked to al Qaeda.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, chaired by Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., circulated a bipartisan letter addressed to Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides, asking for an "accounting of the attacks against U.S. missions in Egypt, Libya and Yemen," according to a copy obtained by The Washington Examiner.

I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for the New York Times to wake up...
Sounds more like a plot to destroy the Clintonista faction.
Hillary, your bus is coming.
Must not be polling well.
I have a sister who went to Harvard.
She’s “so smart”, she didn’t know the ambassador had been sodomized before being murdered.
Bath-House Barry and his secretary of state are going down for their complicity in this attack-they have blood on their homo-hands.
(and my sister should go back to a REAL school and learn a trade.)
The only way that people will hear about this is if the Obama loving media REPORTS it..ABC News shockingly actually reported it, but that is only because Jake Tapper is the only guy in the lamestream media today with actual integrity. If this were any Republican President the media would have demanded their resignation, effective immediately..but since it’s Obama, he is cocky enough to believe he can get away with it. When you have the media wrapped around your little finger you grow a big head, think nothing can touch you
I’ve been a little under the weather all week, hence, very low volume. Oh, and I’m also still on dialup, which stinks btw.
It’s pretty darn sad for America that we’re at a place where this regime thinks they can just lie through their teeth and everybody’s just supposed to except their reckless spin. The MSM have partnered with, and kowtowed to this regime for so long that they think they can get away with any lies they want to tell and the MSM will just repeat them endlessly.
Anything that costs American officials their lives in foreign countries demands a thorough investigation and honesty from ANY and EVERY govt official. If they couldn’t tell us the truth they should have kept their damn mouths shut.... PERIOD!
The lies and the cover up is even worse than the incompetence that’s wholly on display. I can only hope that some of the braindead zombies of the media will come out of their Obama worshiping stupor and start doing what used to be called “investigative journalism”.
This is what happens when you let complete amateurs loose to run amok. I pray this helps kill any chances this idiot has for re-election.
You should play her the former leader of Libya’s sodomy by the “freedom fighters” that we helped fund and equip with arms.
pass the popcorn. this may (or may not) get interesting
Kerry, I’m shocked, snicker snicker
Maybe Lurch knows Zero’s going down and has hopes for 2016 ?????
Disagree. You simply don't offend that big of a segment of your supporters just before an election.
My take - this is too big to be contained. They're covering their butts ahead of time.
Maybe your sister can learn to ask "do you want hot or mild sauce with that?".
Will they throw Hillary under the bus?
