WashPost Frets 'Deadly Benghazi Attack Could Mar Clinton Legacy'
News Busters ^ | October 10, 2012 | Ken Shepherd

Four Americans are dead from a September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and it's becoming abundantly clear that security at the compound had been incredibly lax and that the Obama administration may have actively attempted to deceive the public about the terroristic nature of the strike in the first few days subsequent to it. A House committee is holding a hear as I write this to get to the bottom of things.

So how did the Post cover the story in the Wednesday, October 10 paper? By worrying about the political impact on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Here's how staff writer Anne Gearan opened her page A1 story headlined "Deadly Benghazi attack could mar Clinton legacy":

Well, it certainly marred the lives of an American Ambassador and some fine marines.

I don’t give a sh*t about a Clinton legacy.

*pukes*

It’s hard to be incompetent and then feign indifference as the bodies are shipped home.. and pretend no one knoew to do better than pull security staff out when attacks are imminent.

Evil can run but it can not hide, The entire Obama admin deserves every whack it is staking and more..

Yep, I was thinking the same thing.

Where is the sense of perspective?

I don’t know.

I am disgusted.

It’s like our media are a bunch of democrat groupies in heat over their democrat celebutards, and they expect us to do the same.

The government and media of this country are a bunch of stinking criminals, and they should be dealt with as such.

The real question is: did our State Dept in Cairo send out the apology concurrent with the ‘uprising’ or before it actually started? Did they concoct the video story to blunt the effects from a possible protest about which they were forewarned? They had Intelligence about an attack coming on 9/11/12. I doubt they imagined the murders of our American citizens. I think both Hillary and Obama were friends with the Ambassador.

Hillary made a pact with the Devil when she decided to join the Obama Administration. Now she can reap all that that pact deserves.

Actually it enhances her legacy as a lying do nothing who was in way over her head.
She chose early on to support radical islame-os against Israel, along with her boss the krazy kenyan klown.

Scru her “legacy” and his and the horses they rode in on....

What a JOKE!! The Clintons and their *legacy* are two buffoons who have been onstage too long. (The Clinton “legacy” was originally planned to go on through 8 yrs. of Bill, 8 yrs. of Gore, then 8 yrs. of Hillary; to total 24 yrs.). What a horror!! Thanks to the Lord for Bill not having been able to totally get away with his little diddle with the “girls”; who knows what he DID get away with. The Clinton Dynasty is kaput, unless, of course, people are silly enough to elect Chelsea to something or the other. In which case, all I can say is “Enjoy!”

The complicity of the media has to share the blame as well. HOW COME none of the alphabet media has even INTERVIEWED the FAMILIES of the Ambassador or the 3 military personnel who were MURDERED? Despicable...

Cankles' "legacy" will forever be standing beside Bubba as he said "I did not have sex with that woman, Ms Lewinski" and wagging his crooked finger at the American Public. That, and the "Clinton Body Count List" - I guess she just added four more.

Well, if people in this country are silly enough to elect Chelsea to anything, which I’ve no doubt that they are, they would be continuing Webster Hubbell’s legacy.

Gee, maybe stuping the President doesn’t actually impart any particular knowledge or insight into foreign policy.

reported by the “libyan free press?”...are you kidding me. Please do not quote that again. Common decency goes a long way. He has a wife and two children. His parents have asked that this attack and their son’s death not be politicized. Please observe and grant them that. Out of decency. No one gains by doing this. This reflects on those posting this. No one else.
