It took 7 weeks for the CIA to get their message straight? Involved in this process is the Secretary of Defense who was the previous CIA director and the current CIA director, the ex-general in Iraq and Afghanistan. Both of these men owe high allegiance to President Obama. The CIA is good at working overtly and covertly in real-time. However, this time was 7 weeks to show what happened on 11 September 2012 in Benghazi is not real and not real-time. However, it is close to the election and the CIA, like the intelligence agencies and professional and dedicated civilians and warrior types don't like the world to know they are not able and adept to do their duty with full commitment to their comrades in arms. This is especially true when they are in harm's way.

The Ambassador appears to not have had security support in a compound that was not sufficient for the security of the mission he was on.

Why was he in the most unprotected of the two sites and did the CIA know the Ambassador was at their consulate? Why didn't the CIA group have sufficient arms when other weapons were available?

How long does it take for criminal investigations to be completed within the U.S.?

Republicans are merely using this issue for politiical football before all the facts can be assembled and analyzed.

The mother of a U.S. Navy SEAL veteran killed in last month's Libya consulate attack has asked GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to stop using her son's name in his political speeches.

Barbara Doherty stated "I don't trust Romney. He shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda. It's wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama," Doherty told Boston news station WHDH-TV in response to the candidate sharing at a family farm speech in Iowa about the time he met former her son a number of years ago.

Truthseeker,

Barbara Doherty doesn't trust Obama. Let's get it right.

Nixon thought he could get away with his shenagans in 1972. His power hungry process got him into trouble when he and his high end advisers, including various Secretaries of Departments and others. The election didn't stop the process.

One former President in the 1990s got impeached by the House of Representatives after his election.

Truth is truth, Only the facts change.

If the events from August through November 2012 are similar with an abuse of power, justice will proceed forward.

It is a shame when our highest elected official won't discuss or show the American people that our government is protecting our highly valued servants in the diplomatic and intelligence corps.

Congress knows the rules of engagement in this process, even in a political time of an election in our country established by Founding Fathers that knew about our destiny and that we have laws and procedures to protect us all from an abuse of power.
