The Attack in Benghazi: Worth Investigating After All [The Atlantic]
The Atlantic ^ | 2 Aug 2013 | Conor Friedersdorf

Posted on 08/02/2013 11:59:39 AM PDT by tellw

CNN reports that dozens of CIA agents were on the ground there -- and that they're being pressured to keep quiet. Why?

Suddenly it is imperative that Congress investigate details surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens. I've never felt that way before. But Drew Griffin's scoop changed my mind.

The Press is doing a great job of suppressing this.

More proof that they are Government workers and not a Free Press.

"I've never felt that way before. But Drew Griffin's scoop changed my mind. "

That's because you are a libtard idiot who was WILLFULLY blind to the obvious corruption of this administration. And you know it.

You are just hoping to jump in front of the parade that you see forming over this.

This is what happens when a puppet media is forced to look the other way when it smells a rat regarding 0bama's shenanigans. They wake up 10 months later and learn something WE HERE AT FREE REPUBLIC KNEW NEARLY A YEAR GO.

This is NOT what CNN learned from an attacker on the ground in Benghazi. Did he go around asking CIA people for their badges? No. This is a smoke screen and NOT the damning smoking gun of Benghazi.

If this idiot had so much as listened to Katherine Herridge on FoxNews he’d have known about the gun running to Syria out of Benghazi AND the weapons buy-back program operating there, including the possible repurchase of Man-PAD missiles supposedly for bringing down Ghadaffi’s airforce.

Having lost any normal skeptisim while in the throes of a huge zero-crush these idiot reporters lived in blind faith that their heros were honest with us.

Wonder how they’ll deal with it when they figure out just how badly they’ve been screwed?

Unrequited love’s a bore...

Cracks among the ranks of the Obamanistas! We need to help get the grass fires of awakening to sweep across the land. There seems little doubt but that this can lead to clear evidence of an impeachable offense--& possible a murder trial of the leading anti-American of the early 21st Century. What they are covering up, almost certainly led to the deaths of several people. Or does anyone believe that it was merely a coincidence that all these CIA operatives were on the scene?

It is not that the attack itself was carried out by the CIA, but with all the personnel now reported to have been nearby, there would certainly have been adequate warning, if those there had been there for any holy purpose.

The Fast & Furious gambit comes to mind as to how the Obamanistas think, of course; but this certainly requires an immediate response from anyone in Congress who still gives a flying ___ about our future.

You can bet your ass that’s exactly what this leads to.

The CIA will now be the skirt the shameless try to hide behind.

The CIA involvement explains why the FBI investigation is not proceeding. But I think Brennan’s got some ‘splainin’ to do.

You give way too much credit. He's not thinking for himself. It took having an 'approved' news source saying 'something smells fishy' for his feeble mind to switch gears.

This idiot was no doubt in the 'phony scandal' camp up to the point where someone told him 'it's OK to think differently now'...

What a frikin' tool - how do these useful idiots employed in propaganda maintain any credibility amongst the other useful idiots who vote?

"I don't worry too much about the State Department and the CIA taking steps to keep their employees alive, and learning from instances in which they're killed. All the incentives are aligned."
