State Dept Holds Conference Call on Benghazi Terror Attack Excludes FOX News
Gateway Pundit ^ | October 9, 2012 | Jim Hoft

The Obama State Department held a conference call with reporters tonight on the Benghazi terror attack. They did not invite FOX News on the call. Bret Baier told viewers on Special Report that FOX is usually included on such calls.

During the call, the Obama State Department said there was no protest at the consulate on 9-11 and that terrorists attacked the compound after 8:30 PM. This contradicts directly what the administration was saying after the deadly 9-11 attacks.

Reports on Donilon have been suspiciously quiet.

Why is that?

Yep - that's because the administration was trying to trump up a reason to limit the first amendment rights of those that would speak out against the administration. It backfired because too many people in the chain are onto the administration's tricks. This was going to be their "fast-and-furious" action against amendment 1, just as F&F was designed as an action to undermine Amendment 2.

Things got a little out of hand when 1, people died, and 2, other people spoke up.

The dumba@@ commie emperor has no cloths. Ewwwww....

Can’t disagree with that ... but think something else also in play.

WASHINGTON — When President Obama flies to New York on Monday afternoon for the United Nations General Assembly, he will dispense with the usual battery of one-on-one meetings with world leaders so he can tape an appearance on “The View” and return by midweek to the battleground state of Ohio. Left to help smooth over any ruffled feathers will be Tom Donilon.

Gray-suited, meticulous and little known to the public, Mr. Donilon is the president’s national security adviser and central figure in American foreign policy, “the most important person in the mix,” according to Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. In this critical campaign season, he has also become the president’s geopolitical bodyguard, charged with keeping the world at bay for another 43 days.

Mr. Donilon is the one who wakes the president when an ambassador is killed in Libya, the one who tries to keep Israel from rupturing relations and Egypt from heading off track. Solutions to intractable problems like Iran’s nuclear program are for another day. For now, it is Mr. Donilon’s mission to manage problems and keep them from blowing up, so Mr. Obama can focus on Mitt Romney rather than Benjamin Netanyahu.

They are so stupid they don’t realize that Romney has connections who keep him well informed. PLUS, he actually goes to HIS briefings.

It’s the evening. For a minute, I read it as “M-O-O-N spells Moon” as in Steven King’s “The Stand.”

Got a hunch she's in it up to her neck. She might be THE one that disarmed the Embassy ............................................ FRegards

No, really? The movie was a cover story? There was something more nefarious and planned? (I’m html challenged or I’d post the Casablanca picture. I gave up html in 2000.)

This tragedy (debacle) in Benghazi on 9-11 maybe be an "October Surprise" in reverse. The next two debates will tell.

Must be stated: Beware of the 0bama regime. To them, the ends justify the means. These people are dangerous to the survival of the Republic.
