There has been some “conspiracy talk” out there about how perhaps it was intended that the ambassador was to be taken hostage and exchanged for the blind sheik. While I was originally ready to excuse that as just unsubstantiated chatter, it might explain why the CIA assets one mile away were told to stand down, because Obama knew they would fire on the attackers. It also explains why Obama didn’t send anyone else.
Whatever the reason, we cannot let this investigation stop even if Romney wins the election. We owe it to the four that died. Remember, Hillary will be running in 2016, and Panetta and others will be ready to re-cycle themselves in the next Democratic administration.
I am incredibly disappointed with General Petraus. I have always considered him an honorable man, and sometimes honor means resigning your post when you see the evil your boss is doing, with your record of integrity and honesty providing him the cover to do it.
The same real time intel videos that got all these stooges a photo op for the Bin Laden issue and allowed them to take credit for his death, doesn’t also hold them responsible for Libya and make them share the same responsibility.
There is a reason, perhaps several related reasons, why obama and company didn't do anything. Why? What is/was obama doing in Libya?
There are several possibilities, but we do know that obama likes to give guns to bad people.
We may not know who he is, but, by his words and actions, we know who he philosophically aligns himself with and we can see and/or suspect which causes he makes his own.
Hey, America! What is it going to take?!? How much clearer does it have to be???
Our willful blindness seems almost like a divine sort of curse or supernatural manipulation. I pray that we wake up, in time.
There was an interesting suggestion in a column on the Coach Is Right blog today: The Obama Administration had already jumped on Romney for his criticism of the apology by our Eqyptian embassy. They wanted to use the Benghazi attack as further proof that the Eqyptian embassy’s apology for the movie was appropriate, and therefore Romney’s criticism was ill-founded.
Seeing how the Obama Administration has misjudged the magnitude of other so-called Romney “gaffes,” I find this suggestion to be quite credible. Somehow, a disaster in Benghazi, if caused by that video, would be a weapon for Obama against Romney.
