Criminal what? If they really want to fight this WAR as a police thing, then pull all our troops out and send in lawyers. It’s a win win.

“First” person to be charged? Tell that to Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who I believe is only NOW just out of prison for precipitating this entire “thing”.

The criminal charge (Read: High Crimes and Misdemeanors) should be drafted against the POTUS for Dereliction of Duty in that he failed to make any decision as Commander in Chief that resulted in the death of four American citizens.

A failure to act when there was a duty to do so, resulting in the deaths of the plaintiffs’ relatives. Criminal negligence. Wrongful death.
But it’s the same old problem: this administration isn’t responsible for anything, but they are quick to take credit for nothing.

I disagree.

THIS is going to be a big showy trial, he will be convicted and executed, then as far as the media and white hut are concerned, Benghazi is totally OVER.

If that's the case than this isn't going anywhere: Benghazi stops here.

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.

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.

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.

Secret email reveals top official told Libya's president that terrorists were behind Benghazi attack 5/8/2013

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...

Breaking, Cover-Up?: Libyan President Indicates U.S. Knew Date And Time Of Embassy Attack In Advance… September 16, 2012

…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.

Evan will regularly write for CNN.com and will also appear on CNN programs to discuss his reporting. At the WSJ, Evan helped lead the team that broke news on the complaint that sparked the FBI’s Petraeus investigation, and the removal of an FBI agent in the case. After the Boston bombing, Evan helped lead the team that broke important developments including the suspected source of explosives and materials used to make the bombs, the investigators’ eyeing associates who discarded evidence, and the FBI’s analysis of the bombs. Prior to the joining the Wall Street Journal in 1998, Evan worked as a Miami reporter for the Associated Press. Evan starts on July 28th.
