You got it!

They would much rather be answering questions about WHY they said it was a video. They knew the video lie would come out and all of the investigators would spend all their time uncovering it.

By the time the video lie was uncovered.. Hillary, Obama and his merry band of losers wouldn’t answer any question about the REAL scandal.

According to Fox News, the ship’s Libyan captain told the Times of London that “It was reported there was a fight about the weapons and who got what between the free Syrian Army and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The game plan of the Muslim Brotherhood and its backers in the Obama Administration, according to Greenfield, “calls for a provisional Syrian National Council government followed by another ‘Democratic election’ that will allow the Brotherhood to reap all the benefits of the rebellion.”

” “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE??!!!” /s “

That was my first thought. This is on Fox. Every good liberal knows anything on Fox is a lie. If Fox reported that the sky is blue, liberals would then know the sky is any color but blue.

And, since the source is a known, chronic liar, and the Obama media won’t report on the gun running, the stupid American public will remain, fat, dumb and happy.

“Hillary has been caught in a HUGE lie!”

As if that has never happened before. Anyone remember her testimony under oath where every other word was “I don't recall”, “I don't remember”...yet those darn billing records showed up in her residence.

I think they call her a congenital liar for a reason.

And then there is the liar in chief. Don't expect the MSM to hold either of them accountable. They are on the same page of the political spectrum.

...Hillary requested it. When the Head of the State Department "requests" something, it is an order to do it, not a request.

With power comes responsibility, not just perks.

In June 2012, the New York Times reported that the CIA was helping direct “automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons,” bought by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and smuggled into Syria by the Muslim Brotherhood.

CIA operatives in southern Turkey are “helping allies decide which Syrian opposition fighters across the border will receive arms to fight the Syrian government, reported the New York Times. Those who smuggle the weapons also decide who gets to use them.

The weapons are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border mostly by Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, officials said to the New York Times. The Obama administration, according to the New York Times, is also “providing satellite imagery and other detailed intelligence on Syrian troop locations and movements”.

After which the liberal 0bama bootlickers reflexively say, "it's just FoxNews right-wing propaganda." Because, after all, it didn't have enough credibility for the mainstream drive-bys to pick it up.

I wonder where they got the arms to send to Lybia or Syria. Being that Diane Fienstiens husband, Richard Blum supplied arms during the Iraq war, ya gotta wonder if he’s in this mix too!

I love Jennifer Griffin. If not for her this story would have died along with Stephens and the others.

Yes, so do I. Jennifer Griffin and Catherine Herridge have been doing incredible work at Fox News, especially lately in trying to keep up with the daily Obama Regime shenanigans. There are still some honest hard-working journalists left out there.

And their stories are always given plenty of sunlight on excellent news shows like Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Baier" every day at 6:00 PM ET.

A little more on that:

Dianne’s hubby, Richard Blum, got a waiver from the gun ban from the Clinton admin to IMPORT THOUSANDS of Chinese assault rifles. That’s what the BLUMS do...supply arms all over the world! They sold the govt. arms for the Iraq war as well.

Details...most of them seem to be ‘missing’. We did months of work on this subject when it happened.

There is some on the web, it would take a good investigative journalist with more contacts than I have.

Here’s a bit:

Unfortunately, nothing will come of that. The democrats get their jollies on by lying. This will simply make her more attractive as a presidential frontrunner.

There was a lot of speculation at the time that:

a) Stevens was in Benghazi as part of a gun-running operation

b) Stevens was SUPPOSED to be kidnapped, to give a pretense for the Administration to supply additional weapons and release prisoners as an exchange

c) The local security folks who defied the “stand down” order/non-order accidentally messed up the plan by turning a “show” attack into a hot firefight

d) During the chaos of the firefight, Stevens was killed

Wow, this has the potential to bring down an administration (think Iran Contra on steroids). And Hillary, if involved as Panetta indicated, could be facing criminal justice. Obama would be insulated on this unless Hillary was willing to implicate him.

To get the ball rolling on further discovery the families of the dead Americans should file civil lawsuits against Hillary and US Government.

General on Benghazi: ‘We Never Received a Request for Support from the State Department’

When the Head of the State Department "requests" something, it is an order to do it, not a request.

Unless he or she is requesting from the boss, i.e., the President. Which is what was meant in this context, I believe.

I've been saying this since Sept 11! It made perfect sense for Assad to attack the suppliers of the rebels on Sept 11, since it could easily be blamed on others.

I've been saying from day 1 that Obama's been arming Al Queda associated rebels in Syria with weapons obtained in Libya. But it needed to remain hidden.

It also explains how there was this convenient you-tube video to blame, something that they've had posted for some time, they just needed to leak it to the islamists.

I think Hillary said she did not know anything about that. She gesticulated, got a look on her face that was an attempt to create in the mind of Rand Paul a confidence that that the truth was coming from her, and then she lied straight-faced to us.

This is exactly the scenario Beck told us 4 days after the attack.

Sorry I'm late.
There is more to this. The arms that were supposedly going to Syria through Turkey were ALSO being diverted by the Turks to hamas in GAZA via the muslim brotherhood in Egypt through the Rafah Crossing. Also by ships that tried to run the Israeli blockade.
THAT was the reason for the Stevens meeting with the Turkish coordinator. These weapons were being found and impounded right and left by the Israelis...which made the obama administration even MORE complicit in arming KNOWN terrorists.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
