Obama's Libya Lies Collapse: Senate Democrats Demand Answers
breitbart.com ^ | 9/27/12 | John Nolte

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.

Where is old lord McCain. He was johnnie on the spot with Lieberman to get that ‘soviet’ style commission established to find out what Bush knew and when he knew it. Could lord McCain be covering for his gal pal Hillary?

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

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.

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.

I’m wondering, given that Obozo has worked real hard to cover up the FACT this was a planned and coordinated attack, why Ambassador Stevens was set up to be murdered? What did Stevens know that required he be taken out?

I keep hearing the “Sodomized before and after murdered”. I have never seen the evidence of this. It either happened or it did not. I just don’t know if this is fact or fiction.

If the hildebeaste gets any larger, she’ll roll the bus over when they throw her under there. meebe that’s her strategy. Grampa said to hit a cow straight on, but swerve and miss swine, because a pig’ll roll your vehicle over if it gets under there. good advice.

Yeah, what goes around comes around.

She might just have to be forced to resign from office if the truth of this Scandalous handling of what happened in the " pre-planned attack on American embassies in Libya and Egypt get's out to the public.

If everyone in the media were as honest as Jake Tapper Obama would have already been impeached. He lied, the ENTIRE Administration lied “Oh we dont have any credible information yet” so why did they scrub a memo from their web site showing they had a credible threat on September 6th?
Also, this whole lie that they have to “Investigate further” is one of the stupidest things Ive ever heard..let’s see, was the embassy struck by an earthquake, tornado, hurricane? Did a Mac truck hit the Embassy? No, No, No, and No, so if it wasn’t that and you have armed extremist thugs outside the embassy along with the Blind Sheikh’s son odds are this isn’t just some random gathering..but hey, the Obama Administration thinks we are a bunch of dummies, they have the media in their back pocket, they have ZERO fear of being caught

If there was indeed a coverup, would you not think something like this would be far worse than covering up a third rate burglarly - or at least worse than misspelling potatoe? I’m not holding my breath for the same kind of coverage...

Yes, the new media with Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge, Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin, Bill Cunningham, Romney's campaign managers ( and if you guys are lurking listen up ) need to keep chipping away with what I just said " Mitt Romney therefore is vindicated and the main stream media should be scorned in their attacks on Mitt Romney of him questioning Obama, Hillary Clinton and this administration of their Scandalous Handling of what happened in Libya and Egypt. "

The libs are going to blame the Tea Party, claiming the state department had to cut security funding. It’s someone else’s fault.

DHS and DOD told us the Tea Party is the real terrorists! Now they gone and killed a gay ambassador in peaceful Libya.
