Many have been brainwashed to even think that the gassing over 6 million of Jews during WWII was “ Phony “ .... it's commie propagandizing of America.

Interesting timing-—AS PER USUAL—considering the breaking news about Valerie Jarrett (Iranian born TRUE commander-in-chief) allegedly being the one to give the “stand-down” order in the Benghazi attack on our fine men.

Wait. What? I thought this was a phony scandal.

Actually, this and the shutting down of the embassies over the weekend are a weak attempt to deflect criticism of not handling the terrorism threat sufficiently.

It is time to charge the people who told them to attack and then ordered our troops to stand down.

There does not have to be a stand down order.

All that has to happen is for Obama to not personally authorize the cross border action - and there is no rescue, from anywhere outside the country. (Sigonella or Croatia)

The in-country assets differ slightly, someone told the forces in Tripoli to not go to Benghazi and instead guard Tripoli. This also was technically not a stand down order, although it achieved the same result.

Discovery should be interesting !

Just presenting evidence that’s not been contaminated or comparing those depositions they’ve take. /s

The charges are the first sign of progress in the investigation, which has been hampered by the security situation in Benghazi, Libya and the difficulty of securing evidence there.

House panel hears account of Benghazi attack 5/8/2013

Hicks said U.S. officials knew better by then and that the remarks angered the Libyan president, who had gone on record calling it a terrorist attack. That discord prevented the FBI from reaching Benghazi for several days, Hicks said, because the Libyan government was not able to guarantee their safety.

Libyan President Mohamed Yusuf al-Magariaf was "insulted in front of his own people," Hicks said. "His credibility was reduced. His ability to lead his country was damaged."

Not to mention...

…and he cites intercepted communications to prove it. Keep in mind also that if this is true, then Obama’s main surrogate for the matter on the Sunday talk shows, UN Ambassador Susan Rice (who said on these shows that the whole thing was NOT a pre-planned Al Qaeda operation but merely a movie protest spun out of control), spent the entire day today either lying through her teeth as it is simply impossible to believe that she went on these shows with no approval of her talking points by the White House, or the White House, hoping they could ultimately hide the truth from everybody, including her, lied to her and said they had no evidence indicating Al Qaeda when in fact they had these intercepted communications…

The EX SEALs at the ANNEX were ordered to stand down twice. They were contractors so that stand down did not apply to the military per se.
This is where a lot of the comfusion is.
