Well said...I would add 0bama’s lies by omission regarding his AG Eric Holder and his support for him, the most corrupt AG in American history.

“Where did this story about response to a film causing a spontaneous demonstration originate?”

The originators ... dr. obama, dr. hillary and dr. valerie.

The current narrative of the MSM…..

MSM to Obama……If he lies, no problem, he's a democrat.

MSM to Panetta…..If he lies, not problem, he's a democrat.

MSM to H.Clinton…..If she lies to the public,…no problem, she's a democrat.

MSM to Christie…..If he lies to the public,…he's toast.

I am no Christie sycophant, but this simply demonstrates the duplicity of the MSM.

I couldn’t agree with you more, FRiend.

The media here in this country and their families are American’s also and you’d think they’d try to promote the U.S. instead of tearing it down as many of them do. It proves liberalism and leftism is a mental disorder.

I wonder that too. But note the deliberate pace of the attacks. I am speculating. Why are the “CIA 3”1 muzzeled? Why not just cut them loose? It was an attack. But why then? Why were we so powerless. Why did we let them die and then say “ What difference does it make? “ . This is A COVER UP of what they were there fore. We have cowards in our party who do not want to stand up on the intelligence oversight committees!! Secretary Gates is “off the reservation” but the biggie who knows is LEON PANETTA!! He knows what happened!!!

“Previously scheduled”? I thought they had to pull Obama off the golf course to bring him to the meeting?

Not Obama. Either Hillary or Valarie. Obama is a figurehead organizer/spokesperson for others in the regime. I don’t believe his is very intelligent based on his constant need for TOTUS and complete lack of info about his performance in college.

Here it is FRiend ... Read the Truth and Weep ... Only obama is authorized to order a Stand Down order. All three (obama, hillary, valerie) wanted our Heroes to Die, no doubt, though only obama has the authority to issue the order of Stand Down. obama issued the order or he delegated the order of Stand Down to hillary or valerie!

obama knew of the attack before he went to bed, if he went to bed, thus the order (more than likely) came from obama.

The golf-wear photo was from 2011 when Barry had to be dragged back from the course to partake in witnessing the "Bin Laden Raid" which went down a couple of days after the WH posted the birth certificate forgery using our taxpayer funded computer servers. Wag that dog! Wag it, wag it, wag it!!!

I cannot think of one person in the Obama administration, as a Secretary of a department, as head of the military, as a spokesperson, head of DOJ, DOI, HHS, DHS, FDA, EPA, IRS, etc. and any of their top assistants, who has TOLD THE TRUTH AT A PRESS CONFERENCE, BEFORE A CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE, BEFORE A COURT, AND BEFORE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

I have more respect for the Communists that I have tangled with over the decades because they lie for an ideology. The Obama people lie for power, to cover Obama’s red ass, and to promote their agenda no matter who gets hurt or killed.

They are immoral, unethical and criminal. The NEW NORM for AMERICA under a Democrat Party dictatorship. (Remember, DeBlasio the Red is a Democrat. So is John Commie Conyers, Barbara the Red Lee, Jan Schakowsky the Red, Laura DeRosa the Connecticut Red, Pelosi the friends of Reds, etc).

Lying to them is the natural state of affairs, and the great unwashed, uneducated, and bought off Americans like it like that.

That’s why they want to restore the voting rights of convicted felons. They need more people without any morals.

Voter ID? We don’t need no voter id. Chavez didn’t have any. Stalin didn’t have any. Castro didn’t have any. Kim Mentally Ill and brood didn’t have any. So why should Obama and his marxist minions have any?

I was warned over 40 years ago by those who fled communism in East Germany, Hungary, Vietnam, Romania and Cuba, what to watch for. I’M SEEING EVERYTHING THEY SAID TO WATCH FOR AND WHICH WOULD HAPPEN.

The book “1984” will soon have a new edition and title cover. It will be “2014”.

It is here and Obama and his communists intend to make sure that it stays around like another “1000 Year Reich”.

Only a political uprising of American patriots of all kinds can turn the tide of authoritarian marxism that is now sweeping over our country. ORGANIZE, VOTE, EDUCATE!

My New Congressman, Brad Wenstrup, 2nd District Ohio, shines in this article. Wenstrup is an Iraq war veteran, a combat surgeon. He has voted AGAINST stripping retiree and veteran benefits, voted FOR defunding ObamaCare, voted for delaying ObamaCare, and here he is holding the military's feet to the fire on Benghazi:

He's a very, very smart man.

Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, a first-term lawmaker with experience as an Iraq war veteran and Army reserve officer, pressed Ham further on the point, prodding the 29-year Army veteran to admit that "the nature of the conversation" he had with Panetta and Dempsey was that "this was a terrorist attack."

The transcript reads as follows:

WENSTRUP: "As a military person, I am concerned that someone in the military would be advising that this was a demonstration. I would hope that our military leadership would be advising that this was a terrorist attack."

HAM: "Again, sir, I think, you know, there was some preliminary discussion about, you know, maybe there was a demonstration. But I think at the command, I personally and I think the command very quickly got to the point that this was not a demonstration, this was a terrorist attack."

WENSTRUP: "And you would have advised as such if asked. Would that be correct?"

HAM: "Well, and with General Dempsey and Secretary Panetta, that is the nature of the conversation we had, yes, sir."

WESTRUP: "So no one from the military was ever advising, that you are aware of, that this was a demonstration gone out of control, it was always considered an attack -"

BRISTOL: "Yes, sir."

WENSTRUP: "-- on the United States?"

BRISTOL: "Yes, sir. ... We referred to it as the attack."

What bald-faced, lying tyrants!

They intentionally ran a disinformation campaign against the American people, were aided in it by the media, particularly Candy Crowley, and their ultimate response to the brutal deaths of 4 Americans, a couple of them heroes, was: “What difference does it make?”

A firing squad is too good for such traitors.
