WaPo spinning like mad to try and save their boy, the Kenyan Communist.
They make themselves look like fools when they put forth this kind of cover story for the administration.
I guess Barry's new fifteen minute rule for cutting red tape doesn't apply to "Libyan authorities".
Obama should have been on the phone with the President of Libya to facilitate things. Three hours at the airport? And then they know the hospital is surrounded by an a AQ linked organization? Why wasn't this called a terrorist attack rather than a spontaneous attack linked to a video.
Now that we have the timeline, the investigation really begins. And that timeline was available on September 11 and 12. Obama and Hillary lied their asses off to us and it makes the ceremony at Andrews a disgusting farce.
notice the story talks about the involvement of the GRS, a detail coming out tonight about how they were not used.
washpoo trying to get ahead of the story to control spin
also, the crew arrived at the airport THREE HOURS after it started... and then they waited another THREE hours before getting out of the airport
we had / have a delta team within ONE HOUR of that embassy... WHY weren’t they deployed?
Oh,....OK....if WaPo says so...
Well I guess by now the traitors have had time to come up with a plausible sounding story.
But how to explain all the contradictory stories that have already been published?
Also, what is the source of this story? I could have done much better than this :)
And, why has it taken this long for such a simple timeline to be published?
I call BS on this.
a. 1 hour
b. 2 hours
c. 4 hours
d. 7 hours
Obama says when the initial phone call came, he gave an order to secure those Americans;
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;
“.......theres no evidence that the White House or CIA leadership deliberately delayed or impeded rescue efforts.”
Do their dead bodies count as evidence??
“Delayed” vs Denied—Truth vs Lied—25 minutes vs 6 to 7 hours of battle.... it all seems like such small and insignificant differences, huh.
Question: Will a CBS story be enough impetus for the other sycophants (ABC and NBC) to pick up what’s left of their dignity and cover the story...?
That is nothing less than an admission of craven cowardliness and a complete absence of leadership. In a back-handed and dishonest way WaPo has nailed it.
Good an official timeline, close. The holes in the story show up in the time line. Delay at the airport, hospital surrounded? Holes to cover the time needed to negotiate for the return of Stevens body? Time to secure what was left of weapons in the warehouses.
Ignatius back to his coverup mode. Gee, his honest reporting lasted about two paragraphs.
Guess the Wash. Post is now the DC edition of the Al Qaeda Gazette and Goat-Humping Herald
Well, I guess if the first three or four or nine stories don’t work...run another one up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes.
This is sad.
>> but also of a CIA misjudgment
ESAD/s, Ignatus. Your scapegoating is no more believable than the ruse that involved defecating on the 1st Amenment.
“We can all rest easy now that this has been thoroughly investigated”
WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 (UPI) — The CIA was the real commanding agency at the attacked U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, not the State Department, senior U.S. intelligence officials said.
In addition, two of the four men who died in the Sept. 11 attack — former Navy SEAL commandos Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty — were actually CIA contractors killed defending the mission, not State Department contract security officers, as originally publicly identified, the officials told several news organizations on condition of anonymity.
The new information does not address the Obama administration’s various depictions of whether the assault was a protest that turned violent or a planned terrorist attack. But the officials reiterated early intelligence was patchy and often contradictory. They said talking points for members of Congress and senior administration officials did not at first discuss possible links between the attackers and al-Qaida because the information was classified.
“It wasn’t until after the points were used in public that people reconciled contradictory information and assessed there probably wasn’t a protest around the time of the attack,” a senior U.S. intelligence official said in a statement.
Congressional investigators say it appears the CIA and State Department weren’t on the same page about their respective security roles at the consulate, which the Journal said raised questions about whether the Benghazi security arrangement was flawed.
