I just listened to the Howie Carr interview with Col. Hunt. If we had a responsible press winning reelection would not even be an issue for the Obama-ites. They would just be trying to figure out how to stay out of jail.

Reuters – Tue, 9 Oct, 2012, Excerpt:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. security officer twice asked his State Department superiors for more security agents for the American mission in Benghazi months before an attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, but he got no response.

The officer, Eric Nordstrom, who was based in Tripoli until about two months before the September attack, said a State Department official, Charlene Lamb, wanted to keep the number of U.S. security personnel in Benghazi “artificially low,” according to a memo summarizing his comments to a congressional committee that was obtained by Reuters.

(...)

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a conference in Florida on Tuesday that there was no advanced warning about the Libya attack.

He scoffed at media portrayals of him as “hapless and hopeless” for acknowledging on September 28 a shift in the intelligence assessment of the Benghazi assault, calling it a deliberate terrorist attack instead of an event stemming from spontaneous protest, as initially thought.

Clapper suggested it was unrealistic for anyone to expect the U.S. intelligence community to have a “a God’s eye, God’s ear certitude” right after an attack like the one in Libya.

It was a set-up:

"Body Of Lies From Benghazi To Barack"...

"Weapons Hunting - The Reason For The 9-11 Murders In Libya"...

"While The Rest of You Have Been Distracted"...

Don’t voters have a right to know whether Biden is ill or merely unlikeable, impulsive and prone to deceitfulness?

Just watched the hearing on C-SPAN. The statements and questions from Reps. Gowdy, Rohrbacher, and Kelly were outstanding. Ambassador Kennedy strikes me as a butt-kissing weasel, saying not only he, but anyone else involved with the details could have said it was spontaneous result of a video. Sorry, Mr. Ambassador, the American people don't buy your pap.

Rohrbacher laid to rest any suggestion that the inadequate security had to do with budget/financing constraints.

Washington Examiner on 10/12/12, Excerpt:

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland ended a series of questions about the Obama Administration’s changing narrative about the terrorist attack in Benghazi by saying that she’s paid to be “dumber” than other government officials.

“Look, I’m generally dumber than most of the rest of the government,” Nuland told reporters yesterday. “I mean, that’s what I’m paid to be.”

The comment drew a laugh, but Nuland was serious about not taking any more questions on the topic. “We’re not going to parse this any further,” she said sternly. “We’re just not.”

(You can watch video of Nuland’s briefing above. To see these remarks, made towards the end of that dialogue, start at the 21:45 mark.)

“The State Department has released a transcript of a briefing that two high-ranking department officials gave to a number of reporters via conference call on October 9 (Tuesday)
...
In their desperation to avoid responsibility for the Benghazi debacle, Obama and Biden have pointed fingers in two directions: at the intelligence community for reporting incorrectly that the incident was a protest over a YouTube video clip, and at the State Department for not providing adequate security for the Ambassador.”

“The Obama State Department testified this week that the rational that they were not on the ground for 17 days in Benghazi was because they could not get Visas.”

“Just Who DID Answer the 3 AM call?”

Libya is 6 hours ahead. The attack began about 9:30 PM Libyan time which would have been 3:30 PM EST.

“Obama was informed about the developments in Libya by his National Security Adviser Tom Donilon as the president began a weekly meeting Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey. The White House said Obama was kept apprised throughout the evening and then again Wednesday morning.”
