With a week left in the White House race, more questions linger in terror attacks on US consulate in Libya

Mr West also says it was the State Department that sent in the 6 Americans to try to help, and that may explain Bill Clinton's anxiety for Hillary to release more documents.
SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL:...I neglected to mention from the top that that agent from the top of this incident, or the very beginning of this incident, has been on the phone. He had called the quick reaction security team, he had called the Libyan authorities, he had called the Embassy in Tripoli, and he had called Washington.
TRANSCRIPT: Presidential debate on foreign policy at Lynn University
Obama Now with respect to Libya, as I indicated in the last debate, when we received that phone call, I immediately made sure that, number one, that we did everything we could to secure those Americans who were still in harms way;
The lack of a directive.
The CIA guy painting a target from the roof, which usually means a gun-ship or armed Predator is overhead.
The deny-rescue status on three occasions...who denied?
It’s all odd questions that could be answered in thirty minutes....but we are on six weeks now. I think the more it stays out there....the less confident we are with the administration.
He sums up the situation in one sentence:
“All the President has to do is show the execute order”.
ping for later
Does anyone find it odd that no picture appears him in the siutation Room when the Libya attacks were happening but as soon as SANDY hits the east coast, a picture of him sitting in the Situation Room “monitoring”, is plastered everywhere. Does anyone see anything wrong with this???
When are the Clintons going to quit pimping for a traitor???
Benghazigate has gotten little msm attention.
The hurricane shows Obama in a presidential light.
Had Sandy not happened, Benghazi may have impacted the election. I don’t think it will have much impact now.
Next March or April we’ll finally be getting to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi.
Having lived through hurricanes all of my life... let me assure you that the pain is just starting for these people in the NE. obama cannot do what he has promised to do... he has no power or knowledge with which to do it... this time PRIVATE ENTERPRISE will get it done. The Military... may give security and traffic control eventually... and bring in water and blankets and MRE’s... that is it.
“Does anyone find it odd that no picture appears him in the siutation Room when the Libya attacks were happening but as soon as SANDY hits the east coast, a picture of him sitting in the Situation Room monitoring, is plastered everywhere. Does anyone see anything wrong with this???”
And how about the comment by Zero from the Sandy Situation Room :”We will leave no one behind.”
Disgusting, treasonous, murderous regime. Pray to God that someone will leak the audio of the Seal begging for reinforcement and being told to ‘stand down’ before this election takes place.
If Sandy can negatively impact Obama, GOOD.
I don’t think Benghazi is having much of an impact since the networks weren’t covering it before and are now focused on the hurricane
Thanks for that link. Does it seem to you that they are claiming that 30 people escaped in one armored vehicle?
The description of a traffic jam that they said was customary for that time of night near the compound - how does that jive with the claims now that roadblocks had been set up?
The gate - was nobody manning the gate? They’ve got these concrete walls with razor wire and such, and yet these people were able to just come in through the gate? This picture just doesn’t add up. A bunch of people carrying containers of deisel fuel were able to just walk through the gate? Wasn’t the gate closed? Were these thugs able to shoot open the gate, or what?
There's the root of the problem right there: a populace that demands the violence of government to be used for their personal benefit.
They aren't considering the implications of what being fed by the military means. They are concerned about the quality of the dessert packed in their MRE.
The 47% existed before Obama. More like the 47% CREATED Obama out of thin air to serve them.
This is why the braggadocio on FR about the Military will never accept an order to grab guns is flat out wrong.
A nationwide panic....a nuclear or biological (or economic) 9/11 will change everything.
Not only will low-level grunts feel it's their duty to follow dramatic orders to restore peace and save their country from chaos, but the people will cheer them on in the streets.
Oh, I think Benghazi will matter, because the word IS getting out.
Fox is watched by liberals. They too, understand that the vaunted leftist media hides things. Fox’s ratings exceed those of all the leftist media combined, for a reason. My brother is a staunch lib, he found out about it somehow, and I know he watches Fox and listens to Rush so that he will have a heads up on what my arguments will be when we talk politics.
At work, those of us who know about Benghazi are making it a point to bring it up around the coffee pots. Libs do opposition research just like we do. They know.
Without Fox News, the internet and talk radio are abuzz about Libya. They know.
And with some, it will be the last straw. Benghazi is a visceral issue, it is an emotional issue, and let’s not forget that it was a gay man who was left to die.
They know. And it will matter.
NYC will be fine. The NYPD is vast and effective. And the population is Obama voters to the core.
Nobody is going to blame Obama for the time it takes to repair the subways, and few who are within range of even seeing it are going to be voting in states where Romney has a chance anyway.
NYers are a tough, resilient people. The markets are open today, and a good chunk of the transportation will be operative by next week.
Oh, and a good number of NYC first responders have gone to help with the aftermath of Katrina and other out-of-state storms too.
Wrong question. It impacted a lot of people. 4 dead. The media is deliberately and intentionally, with full knowledge and awareness hiding the story.
If a direct order was given to a member of the uniformed military, but NOT followed, wouldn’t that member be in serious trouble under UCMJ? Wouldn’t a court martial be the expected result of noncompliance? Wouldn’t charges be expected soon after the noncompliance was discovered? Has anyone be charged? Why not?!
