Yeah, in the State Department, in the WH, in the NSA, and in the Defense Department.
Really? The families of the four dead Americans beg to differ.
John, I figured this was one of yours it’s so
outrageous it had to be satire, but NOOOOOOOO.
Well...we've known that for a long time now. Anything new to report?
A think I have seen this ploy many times on ID channel.
When the cops finally track down the killer, he will often say ok I killed her, but I didn’t mean too.
Admit what you know they can prove but distance yourself from the criminality of the act at the same time.
BS, us government, you have nothing but plots and malice.
“incompetence rather than malice or cover up.”
Fast & furious

They’re all patriotic folks, just a little dumb, they’ll do better next time. If only the POTUS knew, he could have stopped it.
1. If Obama has IDIOTS working for him, shouldn't he fire them?
There is no way that the various House committees won't move heaven and earth to get these same people who spoke to CBS to testify. There will be a SELECT committee.
BTW..what's the over/under on how many minutes that Attkinson gets on the CBS Evening News tonight with this story..
“To sum it up in a nutshell, they want us to believe they meant well but they are clueless idiots.”
That may very well be, but that does not mean THAT they are not ACCOUNTABLE, and that’s what it’s all really about isn’t it?.........And yes I do believe they are clueless idiots.
WELL, that makes things better...
we’re too stupid to be responcible
Doesn’t count. It’s the State Dept. They’re held to a higher standard than thuggery, at least by the Constitution.
This is just awful.
And where has that dopey congress been on this.
I hear a lot of complaints about Romney’s lack of follow through.
Makes me wonder if there are any brains at all.
It is not the job of a pres candidate (who might be a dope or a plant from the party in power or any other random guy) to hod the executive branch in check.
The House has been utterly wimpy on this and it’s not good enough.
They need to get the heck off the golf course, put the cocktails down and get to work.
They can start by reviewing the Constitution and continue with familiarizing themselves with their role in upholding it, and THEN they can find out what the other branches ar e doing to destroy our childrens’ future, as the Constitution is all they have to protect themselves.
When did Holder and his terrorist law firms
and DO”J” HIRE (quid pro quo in other form) one of
the attackers of the benGhazi atrocity?
Where was Clinton? Where was Obama?
How many months then passed until the rape and
murder of the Ambassador?
They ARE clueless idiots, but I will never believe, not in a million lifetimes, that they meant well. Am I cynical, or what?
IF THIS WERE THE CASE, these "anonymous" officials (and even the public ones) would have been saying this from THE VERY BEGINNING.
That they were not, tells you all you need to know. This is pure CYA since 'mistakes' aren't criminal. Malice is and was.
Death is just about as much malice as you can visit upon an individual, and it came wrongfully not once, but four times, in just this one incident.
But, “it’s nobody’s fault”.
Unless, of course, the blame can somehow be shifted to either George W. Bush, or the Republican majority in the House of Representatives.
It’s a stretch, but they are working on it.
Putting on socks that don’t match is a mistake. Deliberately lying to the American people is not a “mistake.”
More of the Sgt Schultz defense and a toss of the Col Klink, I know nothing and I am an idiot.
What makes them think 'mistakes' doesn't come with consequences? An order to 'stand down' is not a mistake but deliberate.
Oh yeah? So what about this guy?
They didn’t make mistakes, they deliberately avoided the facts. They didn’t do it maliciously, they did it intentionally.
They made such serious mistakes that if they lived in Singapore they’d be caned before hanging.
“...as either being lying or idiots,”
How about “...as either being lying idiots,”?
This won’t wash with regards to 8 months of obstruction of justice inquiries and cover-up’s.
Nice try but no cigar.
Last week we were told that just prior to Obama’s dipstick press conference (during which he blamed Republicans for his problems) he also held a “private” deep-background briefing for 14 select news agencies.
So guess where this reeking pantload of nonsense came from.
NO, THEY ARE NOT! They are deliberately evil and thus the need to continue to lie about it. As they did with F'n F and the IRS and disastrous obamacare (we have to pass it to see what's in it).
What part of deliberate don't you get with their constant..'We'll do what we want and lie our way out of it.'
So much evil is enabled by this attitude.
a ‘range of mistakes’ = multiple ‘articles of impeachment’ in my book.
why would we want idiots running things? They admit they are incompetent.
Oh Please, America, wake the f* up.
You’ve been invaded at all levels of gubamint by turd world dreamers and schemers and scammers.
The left is, once again, trying to frame the argument. Bengahzi is not just a scandal, it is a bloody scandal. The malice was in the dereliction. The WH abandoned those men to cover up something.
The Top people in the Obama Administration are lying. They’re not idiots. The window dressing one’s are the idiots...
What difference does it make if we call them liars and traitors? What difference?
Silly little me! Simper, simper. How could I be expected to do anything? Why, I was just running around like a chicken with my little ol’ head cut off because I was just - you know - so freaked out..
They’re really and truly idiots to think we’d believe this.
Four people DEAD in Behghazi while they all KNEW the attack could end up that way, they were aware of it, and would NOT let assets be deployed to save those lives. It's out and out accomplices to MURDER. Obama, Clinton any others that were involved are guilty of MURDER!
"incompetence rather than malice or cover up"....
Total BS, the incompetence was in thinking they could get away with the murder of those that could expose Obama's mid east "fast and furious" plan of gun running to his Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Terrorist friends. The buck stops at Obama, he is responsible for the murders and his top Adviser Valerie Jarrett--Islamic terrorism Sharia law etc supporter...needs to go to trial and be hanged for treason after being convicted.
"We're portrayed by Republicans as either being lying or idiots," said one Obama administration official who was part of the Benghazi response. "It's actually closer to us being idiots."
Actually closer to no response to the terrorist attack at Benghazi which they all were watching IN REAL TIME, cheering on the Islamic Jihad terrorists so key players in the Obama/Jarrett gun (heavy munitions actually that would be used against out Military assets eventually) running.
JUSTICE for the four dead brave Americans who begged for more security for MONTHS and over and over again during this raid.
Two Generals who could have ordered help at a moments were reprimanded for wanting to send help and were told to STAND DOWN by Obama so those that could expose him for the treasonous traitorous Islamic sympathizing would be taken out.
Being idiots, what a lame cover. They knew EXACTLY what they were doing as they watched Americans being killed.
Obama, Clinton, Jarrett ---BRING THEM TO TRIAL, PERP WALK THEM TO GITMO! Along with this "administration official who was part of the Benghazi response." Saying I was just doing what I was told still should bring this one the death penalty after a fair trial. Oh, and NOT BY HOLDER, who would let them off.
He's a whole 'nother story as to why he should be tried for being a treasonous traitor to America and our Constitutional Republic.
They were caught DELIBERATELY lying for weeks.
They ALLOWED the US Ambassador to be be killed by not sending help.
They sent a man to prison for a video that had nothing to do with the attack.
They dont see anything wrong with any of this.
These are VERY DANGEROUS PEOPLE.

P.S. What better motive for the attack than the bad guys trying to get their prisoners released.

Why were 30+ CIA operatives in Benghazi?
That’s the big cover up.
The idiot defense, scraping the very bottom of the barrel now.
Can almost see Carney now at the next presser, *We're not crooks, liars and treasonous bastards, we're just idiots*.
Malice and deceit factored into the pissing on the 1st Amendment, and egregious neglect that transpired prior to, during, and after the Benghazi attack.
Idiotic traitors can fill a noose just as well as the malicious variety.
But without malice? That means, they were just four white guys so they were expendable. I swear Obama hates white people unless they have Obama money for him.
BHO’s not a leader. He’s a flim flam artist at best. If he was a leader and up to no good, he’d know how to keep everything under wraps. He’s a con man, not a leader.
