Almost like it was planned that way.
To the families of those men, I humbly & sorrowfully apologize for our nation of fools and our government of self absorbed pigs who's only concern is preseving their status quo.
To you the parents of LIVE young men and women serving under this REGIME, I humbly and sorrowfully apologize for that, and advice you to advice them to GET OUT ASAP. THEY WILL BE sent into harms way & LEFT FOR DEAD if need be for the sake of politics.
And lastly to you parents, the MEDIA does not care either. They only care when it can be used to defeat a Republican, nothing more. When or if you are ever given the opportunity to speak with the media, quit mincing words, tell them exactly what you think of them and this lying president. They killed your child, what more do you have to lose, speak out.
It wasn't always this way, and I am disgusted.
But here's where the plot thickens.
DNI spokesman Shawn Turner told CBS News, "The intelligence community assessed from the very beginning that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack." He added that this classified information was shared with the White House. CBS News then quite correctly concludes that as a member of Obama's cabinet, Susan Rice would would've known this. All cabinet members are given classified briefings.
The bottom line, then, is that during her Sunday show appearances, Rice knew the information she was spreading was false.
**WHO in the hell gave the damn order to NOT rescue our men in Benghazi?**
Just for the record: The five Susan Rice statements:
ABCs This Week - Sept 16, 2012:
JAKE TAPPER: So, first of all, what is the latest you can tell us on who these attackers were at the embassy or at the consulate in Benghazi? Were hearing that the Libyans have arrested people. Theyre saying that some people involved were from outside the country, that there might have even been Al Qaida ties. Whats the latest information?
MS. RICE: Well, Jake, first of all, its important to know that theres an FBI investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. That will tell us with certainty what transpired.
But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous not a premeditated response to what had transpired in Cairo. In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.
We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo. And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons, weapons that as you know in in the wake of the revolution in Libya are are quite common and accessible. And it then evolved from there.
CBSs Face the Nation - Sept 16, 2012
MS. RICE: So well want to see the results of that [FBI] investigation to draw any definitive conclusions. But based on the best information we have to date, what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what began spontaneously in Benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy sparked by this hateful video.
But soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in Benghazi, we believe that it looks like extremist elements, individuals, joined in that in that effort with heavy weapons of the sort that are, unfortunately, readily now available in Libya post-revolution. And that it spun from there into something much, much more violent.
BOB SCHIEFFER: But you do not agree with him that this was something that had been plotted out several months ago?
MS. RICE: We do not we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.
MR. SCHIEFFER: Do you agree or disagree with [the previous guest, the president of Libyas general national congress] that al Qaeda had some part in this?
MS. RICE: Well, well have to find out that out. I mean I think its clear that there were extremist elements that joined in and escalated the violence. Whether they were al Qaeda affiliates, whether they were Libyan-based extremists or al Qaeda itself I think is one of the things well have to determine.
Fox News Sunday - Sept 16, 2012
CHRIS WALLACE: Lets talk about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi this week that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. The top Libyan official says that the attack on Tuesday was, quote, his words preplanned. Al Qaeda says the operation was revenge for our killing a top Al Qaeda leader. What do we know?
MS. RICE: Well, first of all, Chris, we are obviously investigating this very closely. The FBI has a lead in this investigation. The information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. That what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video. People gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons, which unfortunately are quite common in post-revolutionary Libya and that then spun out of control.
But we dont see at this point signs this was a coordinated plan, premeditated attack. Obviously, we will wait for the results of the investigation and we dont want to jump to conclusions before then. But I do think its important for the American people to know our best current assessment.
NBCs Meet the Press - Sept 16, 2012
DAVID GREGORY: Well, lets talk talk about well, you talked about this as spontaneous. Can you say definitively that the attacks on on our consulate in Libya that killed ambassador Stevens and others there security personnel, that was spontaneous, was it a planned attack? Was there a terrorist element to it?
MS. RICE: Well, let us let me tell you the the best information we have at present. First of all, theres an FBI investigation which is ongoing. And we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. But putting together the best information that we have available to us today our current assessment is that what happened in Benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in Cairo, almost a copycat of of the demonstrations against our facility in Cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video.
What we think then transpired in Benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. They came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are readily available in post revolutionary Libya. And it escalated into a much more violent episode. Obviously, thats thats our best judgment now. Well await the results of the investigation. And the president has been very clearwell work with the Libyan authorities to bring those responsible to justice.
CNNs State of the Union - Sept 16, 2012, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Ms. RICE: I have been to Libya and walked the streets of Benghazi myself. And despite what we saw in that horrific incident where some mob was hijacked ultimately by a handful of extremists, the United States is extremely popular in Libya and the outpouring of sympathy and support for Ambassador Stevens and his colleagues from the government, from people is evidence of that.
The fact is, Candy, that this is a turbulent time. Its a time of dramatic change. Its a change that the United States has backed because we understand that when democracy takes root, when human rights and peoples freedom of expression can be manifested, it may lead to turbulence in the short-term, but over the long-term, that is in the interest of the United States.
The mobs weve seen on the outside of these embassies are small minority. Theyre the ones who have largely lost in these emerging democratic processes, and just as the people of these countries are not going to allow their lives to be hijacked by a dictator, theyre not going to allow an extremist mob to hijack their future and their freedom,. And were going to continue to stand with the vast majority of the populations in these countries.
Fine. Rice is not responsible, but obozo IS - he said it himself - the buck stops at him, AND, GO AFTER HIM, not Rice!
Please bombard your Republican congressmen to make obozo testify -
why lied for 2 weeks that it is ‘spontaneous protest resulting from the “video”’ ????
WHY???? considering intelligence report said it was terrorist act right at the beginning!
Even if obozo and gang were really afraid to reveal the truth, a simple ‘we don’t know who is responsible yet, will tell you when we find out for sure.’ will suffice!!!
Congress cannot let the lying murderers get away with the lies and the murders!
1)Has POTUS commented personally and officially on the investigation? That's instructive, it leads me to believe the complete truth is still to be discovered. Obama doesn't want to have to reconcile what he says NOW with the truth, which is yet to come out...
2) I note that the UN has also been tight-lipped. You would think that murder of a fellow ambassador and the violation of a consolate's sovereign territory would spark some sort of response from that international community.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
Something to e-mail to every talking head, every Senator and every House rep.
In the second debate Obama reminded everyone he had called it an “act of terror” on the second day. So why did he keep saying “It’s the video?”
It’s over. It’s forgotten. The public has no spare mental capacity to think about what happened in Benghazi. All the brain cells are taken up with the latest on Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and 2 1 / 2 men.
May as well just drop it. The public doesn’t give a damn, and the current thugs in the white house will never admit to what they did.
(sigh) I think I’ll go join the rest of America on Facebook and post what I’m cooking for supper.
Someone needs to hire mercenaries to go over to Benghazi to shoot up a certain neighborhood there. It would be front and center then.
They wanted to imply Republicans were involved?
Extremist is a word always used to describe anybody that believes in a literal interpretation of the Constitution.
That's like saying we didn't mention Elton John's sequin covered glasses because we didn't want to tip him off that we knew he was gay.
