Well I’m a little worried the media is completely missing this point of when Washington got the phone call for what was said in the email, to me, the initial phone call is an all important point.

If he died of smoke inhalation why did he die at the hospital? We should treat every fact as a lie and start from there. He was probably choked to death or worse.

Chris Wallace talking to governors: We will get to Benghazi, but first we must talk about women’s health care issues. Gov Romney has said he wants to reverse Roe v Wade.....


Ha! Ir really is like watching the old shell game take another sucker down, isn’t it? Grifters is what they all are.

You gotta wonder who was thinking what when all this went down! How could all those who watched this thing go down even live with themselves when they watched the commander- in-chief let our people in harms way be slaughtered by our worst enemies of the day, terrorists. Had to be horrendous for anyone who actually cared about our people.Hard to tell who the players are these days.

Romney is running a much better campaign than the MSM realizes. Obama looks very desperate and weak since the first debate. The MSM cannot seem to rescue the Obama campaign, but they are trying harder and harder. Obama gets no traction regardless of what the MSM avoids covering. They simply cannot prop their Obama up.

How can CNN find evidence (Steven's logs) within hours, but the FBI's investigative team can't get there for a week ?

It was actually two weeks. Here is my take on why this happened.

Remember when the President of Libya came out a few days after the attack and said it was a terrorist attack linked to AQ and that foreign terrorists were involved because they have been infiltrating Libya for months? Couple that with the fact that it has been reported that three of the attackers were captured at the CIA annex in Benghazi and that they had been turned over to Libyan authorities. No doubt that informed the statements of the Libyan President.

The administration blamed the FBI delay on visa issues and that the situation was too dangerous on the ground in Benghazi. This was all a smokescreen to delay the investigation and perhaps hinder it since visiting a two or three week old "crime scene" would reveal less than being there almost immediately. It was interesting that a CNN reporter could enter the compound and find the Amb's personal journal a few days after the attack.

This is a huge cover-up that involves the President and Hillary Clinton primarily. They will delay the results of the investigation until after the election and if Obama is reelected, the results will be sanitized and buried to protect Obama and Hillary's future political ambitions. If Romney is elected he should appoint a special prosecutor to investigate what happened.

This is the sequence of events video from the FOXNEWS. Unimaginable fear when machine guns fire at your vehicle from 2 feet away, let alone the “crowd” who could have dispersed early on as enemy combatants, you can be sure they are the same ‘looters’ who found the Ambassador.

At 2:10(video time) you see the escape vehicle(armored car) gets fired on from a ‘crowd’, 2 grenades were thrown under it, then hit with machine gun fire from 2 feet away;

Oh dear Lord.

If Petraeus repeated that silly video story he shall never utter another word that I shall believe.

Don’t doubt me.

Somebody justify that to me....yon Petraeus lovers.


If we had basic classes in anti-communism, as we should have but don’t, all conservatives (graduates) would instinctively understand that when (1) Obama hires (2) Petraeus each side reveals its true understanding of the other—Comrade Obama wants an apparatchik he can count on and Comrade Petraeus is only too happy to oblige.

Think of Lenin and Trotsky, Stalin and Beria, Brezhnev and Andropov....

It’s really basic stuff.

As Rush says every day, they live in an alternate reality. They felt sandbagged when they were confronted with the real Romney at the debates.

If they had only looked at his history - which is Not a Secret! - they would have known that among his talents were vision and organization.

For what it is worth:

Fox News obviously has leaked info that the drones were indeed armed. They used today’s show to draw out comment on the record. The next shoe to drop is going to be documents showing that the drones were armed and ready to fire. Someone gave the order not to engage. Not long after Woods lasered the target, because the drone never fired, he was killed by the terrorist mortar nest he was trying to target. I would also look for someone very prominent coming out next week under whistleblower protections. Hopefully, the video is about to get leaked as well.

Hard to tell who the players are these days.

I'd go with advice that I heard from an Old School defensive lineman:

"Gather up everybody, check to see which one's got the ball and keep him."

Only challenge is the number of people "got the ball"....

Stevens’ death was on purpose and planned months ago, Imho. Deny security, make sure the only protection he has be locals who are easily compromised. The locals tell the terror types where he is. Not very difficult to let nature take its course and the blame it all on everyone else. From Petraeus to Hillary to Panetta. When all the time the calls were made by zeros handlers.

Of course everything that happened for months could all be coincidence too!! Which do you believe?


I think its more likely they wanted to kidnap Stevens and then trade him for the blind sheik—with a few weeks of Oct “crisis” for the lamestream to use to win the election for Odumbsky.

But the jihadis are so bloodthirsty they killed the ambassador instead of grabbing him.

There were hundreds of KGB plots like this back in the day that went wrong because some hired goon somewhere went all thug and screwed up.

Big problem the Left has always had—you just can’t get good help from a dumbed-down labor pool.

HEre is what snopes had to say:

A Libyan doctor who treated Stevens said he died of severe asphyxiation, apparently from smoke. In a sign of the chaos of during the attack, Stevens was brought alone by Libyans to the Benghazi Medical Center with no other Americans, and no one at the facility knew who he was, the doctor, Ziad Abu Zeid, told The Associated Press. Stevens was practically dead when he arrived close to 1 a.m., but "we tried to revive him for an hour and a half but with no success," Abu Zeid said. The ambassador had bleeding in his stomach because of the asphyxiation but no other injuries, he said. Read more at http://www.snopes.com/politics/military/stevens.asp#tKPp3z9rUjl7Sxch.99

I got this from Snopes.

Not sure if there was yet another full autopsy done or not.

The Democrat Party will take years to get back into the game. ... will not have much leadership.... as they sit back and blame each other for the destructive Obama 4 years.

We always say that, as most recently as 2010. I'm hopeful and confident that the wave of 2010 continues fully and completely into the WH and Senate which would embolden a truly conservative Romney who knows drastic measures, cuts, etc. are needed.

If he's got congressional support, we can finally get it done. He'll have Paul Ryan insisting that it is not possible to kick the can down the road any longer. The time is now.

You, Mitt Romney, will have a mandate if for no other reason; we're staring insolvency in the face.. You, Mitt Romney, better than almost anyone else, understand how to fix this. The support you are receiving with a huge raw vote victory (and electoral win to match ?) is license to get serious.

Cut, slash, streamline, condense, fire. Top to bottom.

I read this last night:

“But the stunning part of the story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force. Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that just two men had inflicted so much death and destruction.”

Why did I have to just run into this? Anybody else read this?

Watergate is nothin compared to this coverup.

I have a hard time believing this Rod.

But let me gather my thoughts.

It’s not that I don’t think that gang is capable of arranging a death for political purposes.

I just don’t think they would attempted such a thing during an election year. Too many things could go wrong and, as is always with these things, you get more than one person involved in conspiracy like this it will not remain secret forever, that’s just how it goes.

I think you are looking at what, I would guess, from the beginning looked like a tame thing to the WH/State Department.

I think the natives got restless outside the embassy and it was reported as same, routine. The memos made it where they were supposed to go but it was yawn time.

At some point all hell broke out and I just think everybody got it wrong. Everybody.

The State Dept kept saying to be patient, Humador’s calling her Muslim contacts, she’ll get somebody to settle it down. Preezie would be able to go to Las Vegas in the morn, no sweat.

The CIA was reporting I supppose, the army guys. Everybody doing their job, nobody much paying attention.

Then the calls came in. This agency was reporting that, some army group wants to know if they should go in, the drone operator wants to know if guns should be fired. Reports that the Seal contractors were going to save the day came in so they waited. Nope, don’t bother that air base in Italy, we’re good.

Meanwhile Jarrett and Axelrod are bending preezie’s ear, dear Lord we don’t need this, a terror attack two weeks before the election, Al Queda doing it, no less. Oh no this will cost the election, what can we do?

Humidor comes up with the video thing, she gets out the word to give all the rioters five bucks to come run the streets like they do to scare Americans.

This gets rigged up, Rice will speak to the TV; technically she represents the UN. Somebody calls up all the Muslim types and they say why not issue a big apology, something make our people respect us? Muslim Brotherhood being all new to the reins of power and a good word or two, America on her news for insulting the Propher Muhummad. Might be worth one of those big dumps of debit cards without bother of identity to the Obama campaign now that you mention.

Talk about your “perfect storm”. Man I got this story, the MOVIE, all written in my head. It’s a BEST SELLER!

It was the Perfect Storm of Inmates Running the Asylum is my contention and, I shall end your boredom, as it always, always, always goes....

....THE COVER UP WILL DO THEM IN!!!

I think Obama made the call with the advice of Plouffe, Axelrod, Jarret, and Hillary. It was strictly political like every other decision he makes in the WH.

I found Panetta comments instructive, i.e., you don't send people into harm's way until you have all the facts and intel. No doubt this was the line that Panetta used when it was discussed with the national security team as the crisis was unfolding. It gave Plouffe et. al. an excuse not to take action. I am sure that Hillary probably mentioned the possible collateral damage done to innocent Libyans who lived near the annex and consulate compound and how that would damage our bilateral relations with Libya.

So no action was taken and the video and investigation became the delaying tactic until after the election. They didn't factor in the input of whistleblowers who leaked what actually happened. Now Obama is trying to blame DOD and the CIA for the failure to act since he allegedly said that he ordered them to take all actions necessary to protect our people under fire in Benghazi. This is a lie.

I wish that Petraeus or General Ham would have the integrity and honor to blow this story out of the water before the election. Or perhaps some of the whistleblowers on the ground who leaked the details. It would doom Obama's chances entirely of being reelected.

You offered one scenario that, well you could be right.

If OBama is elected you say it will sanitized and retired.

I said that if OBama is elected he would ultimately be impeached.

You could be right.

And if you are, that will say everything we need to know about those elected pubs.

Because what happened at Benghazi was horrible and actions should be taken to punish those who did it that nobody in the future attempts such folly.

But if Obama is re-elected.....

....it will probably be overlooked, no matter if we own the senate and the House.

Tragic.

It is mostly conjecture, but as a political and news junkie for years, it is not very hard to see which way the winds are blowing on this story. This is why the lapdog press today cut everyone off before any responses could be given. They know what is coming down and they are afraid....very afraid. Not only will this bring down Obama...but we will find out that his press puppets were given the same info as Fox News and sat on it!

Did Brennan make the call?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/cia-veteran-john-brennan-has-transformed-us-counterterrorism-policy/2012/10/24/318b8eec-1c7c-11e2-ad90-ba5920e56eb3_story.html

What was once a disparate collection of tactics — drone strikes by the CIA and the military, overhead surveillance, deployment of small Special Forces ground units at far-flung bases, and distribution of military and economic aid to threatened governments — has become a White House-centered strategy with Brennan at its core.

Four years ago, Brennan felt compelled to withdraw from consideration as President Obama’s first CIA director because of what he regarded as unfair criticism of his role in counterterrorism practices as an intelligence official during the George W. Bush administration. Instead, he stepped into a job in the Obama administration with greater responsibility and influence.
