Foxís Shep Smith Goes Off On Govít Over Failure To Protect Libyan Consulate (When you lose Shep)
Mediaite ^ | October 10th, 2012 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 10/10/2012 2:15:53 PM PDT by nhwingut

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith let his outrage fly this afternoon on Studio B, as he angrily chided the federal government for not increasing security abroad even after intelligence officials learned that there was a plot to murder American emissaries.

Speaking via satellite with security expert Rick Nelson, Smith repeatedly raised his voice — not at Nelson, but at the subject overall.

“What is interesting to me and might be interesting to the people at home watching as some of them with their jaws dropped is that, first of all, the man who is in charge of the security detail there has said from the beginning in the testimony that we don’t have the security need for our Americans whom we sent over there to serve us,” he said as his voice began to rise.

“Then the terrorists struck us at that spot in Benghazi. But no one told us about it. And then they put on Facebook they would attack again. And no one told us about it. And then they attacked again and they told us it was not an attack, it was a looking at video and they got excited,” he continued in a shouting voice. “Something ain’t right… Are all of our people sitting ducks?”

Playing politics.

We have been hit with another terrorist attack, the government lied about it, and has not only coddled terrorists (normal democrat stuff), but actually exonerated them.

This is not playing politics.

This is exposing treason.

I agree with you 110%. But with the Senate in control of the rats, nothing will be done about it.

Is the issue that you don't like Smith, or that an American ambassador has been murdered along with three people who tried to protect him?

Sometimes . . .

Well Shep, it’s okay for YOU to be outraged, but not if one is a Republican ?

What a POS!!

Shep used the word ‘terrorist’? I thought Obama had ended all offensive language. The two ninnies from the State Department would not, could not call the murders terrorists.

I hope the Romney administration has the guts to tell us in January, “here’s what really happened...and here’s what we are going to do about it.’

This is so much bigger than the obama White House or the Romney White House and I think they need to get over their reluctance to criticize the former occupant.

In any event. Priority #1 is to oust obama and as many D’s as possible from the Senate.

Then on to #2.

so, in Shep's world....Shep wanting answers from the federal government = okay, Republicans wanting answers from the federal government = not okay. Hmmmmm.

Well, some other FReeper was wondering about outrage in the gay community over the Stephens rape and murder.

If Shep is any indication . . . there is . .

Good ol’ Shep.

Shep , nose in the air smelling the way the winds blow,is not afraid to be the frontrunner on a month old story.

The integrity, the courage, the risk taker.

I think I am in love.

Is interesting to watch the liberal reporters jumping ship to be in good grace with the WH no matter who is in office.
The posturing has begun! The fence is getting tough to walk
as Nov 6th looms. Who will be the winners and who will be the losers.
That WH press Corp tag may be elusive to some but easier to obtain for those who fall on the right side of the fence!
Some may even wait until Nov 5 @ midnight!
If we are fortunate Jay Carney’s tag will be pulled Jan 20 2013!

Security? What security? Why should we worry about security?

We have had an enigma in the WH for more that three years who has not been vetted, who we know very little of, and who has access to the nuclear football.

Duh.

If we do not make the right choices in November, it will be a picture the USA being dragged through the street instead of a US ambassador.

I usually watch during my lunch hour and they were showing live feed from the house. It then went back to Shep and when he made his comments I turned it over to C-Span to get the unfiltered version.

Wow the part of the title that goes “when you lose Shep” nails it. If the down-low Obama has lost his fellow “slims” sufferer, he’s lost completely—his ineptness has caught up with him finally.
