Benghazi hit by blast on anniversary of attack on U.S. consulate
Posted on 09/11/2013 2:21:56 AM PDT by markomalley
A powerful blast on the main street in the Libyan city of Benghazi early Wednesday damaged a foreign ministry building and a branch of the Central Bank of Libya, an eyewitness said.
The explosion comes on the anniversary of the September 11, 2012, assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
Eyewitness and Benghazi resident Sami Berriwen told CNN he saw no casualties as a result of the blast in the eastern city, which occurred at about 7 a.m. (1 a.m. ET.) Berriwen, a university student, said that if the blast had happened just an hour later, the street would have been full of people. He said most Benghazi residents walk this street to get to school and to work, but because of the early hour, no one was out yet.
Berriwan said he did not see what caused the blast. He saw a fire truck but no ambulances on the scene. Diplomatic missions and security officials have repeatedly been the target of attacks in Benghazi, leading most Westerners to leave.

I gotta hand it to Jeb...it takes a real dumb ass to actually stand up and give Hillary an award for anything.
I actually hope there is a picture of this: I’m going to post it every time someone from here mentions Jeb in the future as a possible pick for President in 2016.

They are just rubbing it in.
This is a historical spot now. Its where “Al-Queda” became “the rebels”.

What happened in Benghazi is a tragedy. Were investigating exactly what happened. I take full responsibility for that fact. I send these folks in harms way, I want to make sure theyre always safe and when that doesn't happen, that we figure out what happened and make sure that doesn't happen again. But my biggest priority now is bringing those folks to justice and I think the American people have seen thats a commitment I'll always keep.

It's now become a phony scandal.

Well, with the rumors that they are being silenced by the threat of prosecution, I guess Obama told the complete and honest truth, that time. :)

What a quote (what a jackwagon).
The guy just doesn't know how to STFU
Nothing to see, it’s just the muzzies celebrating their victory over the Zero King. I’m sure the “news” media see this as nothing to report on.
