Skip to comments.60 Minutes confirms Benghazi is a real scandal, and you’ve been lied to
Posted on 10/27/2013 5:22:34 PM PDT by smoothsailing
60 Minutes had an absolutely devastating report on the Obama administration’s failure to protect Ambassador Chris Stevens and other Americans in Benghazi.
I’ll post the video when available (update – available and added), but the heart of the report is that there were clear and unequivocal warnings which were ignored, and the Obama administration lied about these warnings after the attack.
Hillary and Obama blamed a video and stood by the caskets perpetuating that lie.
And remember how almost all of the media obsessed with Mitt Romney’s statement over Benghazi, and colluded to ask Romney gotcha questions while downplaying and obfuscating what really happened.
60 Minutes said its investigation took almost a year.

Well Duh, it is a cover up!

Wow. State Department refused to allow security guards to carry guns at the US mission in Benghazi. (h/t @60Minutes)
Zero isn’t doing Hus usual crotch salute in that pic.
I know he isn’t saluting the fallen.
Next surprise, 60 Minutes trying to do actual journalism?
Wonder how swift the punishment from Jarret and crew will be.
What’s been posted is amazing—that is, that it appeared on a network channel, rather than FOX. That’s the only method of presentation that could create echoes. Will it? We’ll see.
Got to hand it to the MSM - when there’s an Obama scandal that anybody with a set of functioning neurons can figure out in a couple of weeks, they can be relied on to kind of make sense out it . . . more than a year later.
And conveniently, well after an election that could have provided some accountability for the slimes in the regime responsible for the deaths of four Americans.
The Media did everything they could to protect dear leader from this scandal going into the election.
They are still protecting him the the scandal that's Obamacare, Fast and Furious, the powder keg he's ignited in the Middle East and a dozen other scandals and even from all the of Hilary's screw ups as well.
The Media in this country is nothing more then a propaganda arm of the progressive politicians in both the Democratic and Republican parties. They are corrupt and dishonest to the very core and have and will continue to represent the biggest threat to this nation.
Just because they touched on this one scandal a little on 60 minutes doesn't absolve them of all the other lies and misdeeds over the last 20 years. They are STILL heavily in the tank for politicians like Obama and 99% of the time everything they say and do is contrary to everything that's good for America.

Happy to see CBS admitting a cover-up on Benghazi and surprised they are but they’re pretty late in doing so.
At some point in the next 24 hours, some news outlet will quote some unnamed source at Defense or State who will say that Obama had not been made aware of the situation in Benghazi. In other words, the buck never got to him.
Well said. Sixty minutes.......too little, too late. They claim they have been investigating for a year......facts not confirmed have never prevented them from making assertions, innuendo and outright speculation about George Bush. Tools.
Can you find a video of the segment so we can make sure it gets distributed ?
CBS’s participation in this story seems directly proportional to Sec State Hillary’s distance in time from what actually happened.
“I can’t recall ...”
I recall the "old news" (Alinsky?) tactic and just got this from an Internet search
Gennifer Flowers was given her five minutes of fame, Clinton admitted to [it]... and thereafter any mention of Clinton's pathological sex life was "old news" and "partisan" . . . .
Don't forget 60MINS helped the Clintons with that one.
Let me guess, now that Obamacare is implemented as a failure and having done the damage to private insurance, the One is going to be thrown under the bus because single payer is next?
The "buck" avoids Obama like the plague. This is either the most corrupt administration in the nations history (which is saying a lot if you remember back to the Nixon and Carter administrations), or the most incompetent.
Neither is a good thing and if it wasn't for the Media covering for this guy at every turn, he would have never been allowed to get as far as he has.
One has ask, why is the Media in America so intent on destroying the very nation that they were giving constitutional privileges from to protect? I just don't see what they have to gain from blindly supporting every progressive politician in the country? They will manipulate the news, twist the truth and flat out lie for almost ANY Progressive in America.
Video at the link.
"Old news" they couldn't be bothered to cover when it was new news.
I agree and am frankly surprised she is still employed by CBS. Sharyl Attkisson is a very good investigative reporter and straight shooter, she reports stories like they should be reported.
Not at all. It's pretty obvious that's a big part of what was going on.
They do these reports when focus is elsewhere and way before the next election, so they can claim they covered the story.
Note all this info has never been used by their White House reporters to aggressively question any administration official.
And of course republicans don’t understand the need to take this and start debunking Hilary now.
Not anymore. The Audacity of Hoax has become brazen enough to let it all out. And why not? It isn’t like there’s anyone with the brass to make him accountable...
Hell, the Media was referring to Bengazi as old news about the time the elections kicked into high gear!!
What difference does it make?
Devastating? Not for a Democrat regime. It would only devastate them if ALL the media made an issue out of it 24/7 for a few weeks.... and they wont.
It won’t change a thing, We’re all raciest if we think Obama did anything wrong. Obama supporters absolutely can not see the truth.
Good story but relatively soft on directly pinning down the Obama administration’s direct culpability. No indictment of Hillary, no mention of the disgusting lies about some anti-Muslim video that started a ‘spontaneous’ outburst. No mention of where was Obama that night and that he was up bright and early the next day to fly to Vegas for more fundraising.
No mention of Greg Hicks’ demotion for telling the true story, no mention of Panetta’s total inaction. Lots of innuendo and indirect implication of malfeasance but the story started out with a small silent shot of Jay Carney and a statement from Lara Logan that ‘both sides’ have been political about this. I think the administration got a hold of CBS and tamed this story down with a lot of clouds and equivocation.
This is as much as we are going to get. I fully expect the WH let this one get out and has the rest of the Gov’t run media on alert to start focusing their guns on some in-depth story on Ted Cruz’s dislike of baby kittens or something equally hard-hitting.
Just like they did on the George Bush National Guard story.... oh never mind, that was almost a day or so they 'investigated.'
Here’s a link to a complete script of the show
There are some things in the script I didn’t pick up on when I watched the show.
plus there’s additional video there as well.
Imagine that it took over a YEAR for a single investigative TV piece to have been broadcast about WATERGATE.
Now imagine further that that broadcast contained ZERO mentions of the Prez or the Number 2 in charge.
What we see here I think:
The left has now extracted maximum damage to America via GayMuzzie and now has to salvage some credibility:
So that they can now focus on promoting the next Great Satan, HILLARY.
Thanks, Smooth...Mrs. jaz and I will be watching it shortly, it starts at 7 Pacific and I’ll come back to your link of script and video.
Start the countdown/countout until she is canned or raided on val jarrets orders.
The countdown started months ago. She’s already had her computers hacked. But she’s feisty, I’m betting she’ll be a survivor.
Or she gets the Michael Hastings treatment.
I don’t think y’all will be disappointed, Jaz. I wasn’t. They did a good job.
Is this tonight’s episode? It’s on in 5 mins.
Yes, and it starts right off as the first segment, runs about 20 minutes.
The most transparent administration ever? Try the most opaque. Opaque and dense like a black hole. Or a half black hole.
The Audacity of Hoax
Oh my, that’s great.
Switched over from the WS. Ready to watch, kind of in disbelief.
West coast freepers, put it on or tape it.
Thank you so much!
I missed several parts, too.
Thank you - just trying to be a good little right-wing radical ;’)
