The entire purpose behind the Benghazi witch hunt is to damage Hilary Clinton so
she'll be a weak presidential candidate in 2016. This is the first volley
in the next presidential contest.Just for reference, let me point
out some of the embassy attacks that occurred under President Bush II:In 2002, the US Consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, was bombed; 12 were killedIn 2004, the US embassy in Uzbekistan was attacked; 2 were killedIn
2004, the US Consulate in Saudi Arabia was stormed, killing 5 employeesIn
2006, armed men attacked the US Embassy in Syria; one was murderedIn 2007
a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the US Embassy in AthensIn 2008,
the US Embassy in Serbia was set on fireIn 2008, bombings in the US
Embassy in Yemen killed 19In these attacks, those killed were not
American citizens. Nevertheless, the attacks were met with calls for solidarity
and were used by no one to further their political ambitions. Why is that not
the case now? The Republicans see an opportunity to make hay out of a tragedy,
just as Romney did in the 2nd debate. It won't work, but please proceed.
53% of the US and none of the rest of the world believe Jay Carney's
@The Skeptical ChymistOur ambassador was killed, and the president
lied to us about who did it, and why. That's the difference.
The previous poster Skeptical Chymist hits the nail on the head. Whether Obama
lied, Spoke before he had all the fact, or was given incorrect information, all
a possibility, the truth is this is going to be a 3 year witch hunt to weaken
Hillary but to no avail. In 2016 53% plus will vote her in and again in 2020!
Keep digging Pubs. keep digging, the hole isn't deep enough yet!
Gerson:"Martha Raddatz asked Joe Biden why the White House had
attributed the death of Stevens to the video. He responded: "Because that
was exactly what we were told by the intelligence community."ABC
posted the 12 revisions of the talking points. From the very first draft to the
last draft the first paragraph refers to the attack as being inspired by the
protests in Cairo. Eric Nordstrom testified to Congress he first suspected the
attack was similar to one that happened earlier as a result of a video. NYTimes
reported people at the scene of the attack attributed it to a video. The
extremist group-An Al Sharia--believed to have played a role in the attack,
while denying culpability, made reference to the perceived attack on Islam.The email by senior State Dept official, Beth Jones, uses the word
"extremists," not terrorists as reported in Gerson's column and by
Having seen the time line on events leading up to and following the attack on
the embassy, I am convinced that Hillary lied to ongress and Obama lied to the
public. That he also left on a campaign trip the following morning is also
indicitave o his concern for american lives.There should be
impeachment an criminal charges. Any prior events by republicans does not
excuse this one.
Except that Obama called it an act of terror within a few days, and the
Administration got it straightened out in 2 weeks (late september is still over
a month before the election).
@DougSIf lying to the public were an impeachable crime we'd have no
Presidents make it through a first term. Besides, there's a difference
between lying and being wrong. You're just upset your candidate lost. Get
By "handling Benghazi" do you mean repeatedly lying to the public just
before an election? The Obama apologists have been saying too many "Well,
but...." in an effort to deflect and change the subject. The issue is not
Kennedy, Reagan, Bush, Bill Clinton or Romney, it's an Obama orchestrated
lie to the public that has now been exposed. Is this the change we can believe
