There are always security issues there-how could their mission be over? This was a brainless and senseless tragedy and a dereliction of duty.
obama has not been held accountable for anything in his entire life. Well, in the words of your mentor obama.....your chickens are finally coming home to roost.
There is a bit more to this story. http://macsmind.com/wordpress/2012/10/the-truth-of-benghazi-is-coming-out-as-intel-professionals-speak-out-on-the-coverup/
WTF.....how could the race be so close? I don't understand anything about this administration. I feel like this is a dream and I moved to another country. Need a GPS to find America!
I sincerely hope Ms Attkisson has proper security.
This is the second scandal which she is investigating, where the Obama administration has blood on their hands.
The security team wasn't pulled, but their mission was simply over. That makes all the difference doesn't it? Repeated requests for an extension are immaterial, right?
Whether the mission was over or whether they were removed early doesn't matter. The fact is the State Dpt. knew the security was needed and they denied it.
I love seeing reports like this coming from the left-wing MSM, although they don't happen often.
Hopefully this sordid mess will prove to be the elimination of the Clintons from any further involvement in our government.
It seems like Sharyl A. is one of the few true journalists left in the MSM. She also did some good reports on Fast and Furious until the network apparently got uncomfortable. I doubt if any other networks will pick up on this... but you never know... but I won't hold my breath.
Bin Laden is Dead, AlQaeda is Alive and GM is in Debt. Should the truth ever be known, the attack was a repraisal for the drone attacks and Obama spiking the ball, bragging about having killed Bin Laden,,,,had absolutely NOTHING to do with that lame video,,,,but then that would not play well in the media
It will be interesting to see what the reaction will be from muslims after the movie is shown about Obama killing Bin Laden. Is Obama going to have himself wisked away in the middle of the night by his own brownshirts for stoking the flames like he did that other guy? Obama invited Hollywood in for the story, so he is going to be responsible for what happens.
How does this jive with his speech telling everyone not to incite the muslim world? He is going to be doing it just before the election with that movie. I'll bet the movie gives the credit to Obama....not our military, our intelligence, or Bush (for getting the info from waterboarding that led to tracking Bin Laden down). I want to see it just so I can be aware of what is being claimed, but I don't want to help the appearance that I am praising Obama and I don't want to help the producer profit off a lying, propaganda piece of sh** movie.
We can add more names to this, but this speaks volumes: https://www.facebook.com/index.php?lh=Ac_Z1CqthOZwez0p#!/photo.php?fbid=500938059931540&set=a.328819400476741.90498.328808787144469&type=1&theater
Drip....drip.....drip....drip.....drip....keeps getting worse!! Each day more and more is coming out and the MSM is covering slowly but more and more.....The fact is this is going to become just an ALBATROSS that no one will be able to lift. To see the blantant LYING AND MANIPULATION is striking.....but the hits keep coming....and coming....does anyone believe that Obama will do well when Mitt slams him in a Foreign Policy debate? Look at all the material lining up against the Marxist and thrown in Fast & Furious....oh I cannot wait to see the look on his face!! Las Vegas, Beyonce, David Letterman all while the Embassies burned!!
Drip....drip.....drip.....drip.....the dam is overflowing Marxist!
There’s no reasonable person in this country who is going to believe that the State Department couldn’t have extended security in Libya at the request of their top security official on the ground.
Unfortunately it's not only reasonable people who vote (and more than once).
Calling all conservative voices on TV, Radio, and internet...Paul Revere or bust...do not let the light fade on this until all Americans know the truth...I thought Fast and Furious was their Watergate but...
And then a representative of our government, not just any Representative but one with a PhD. and a Cabinet Level position that also includes being the UN Representative of this formerly great country went on national TV, 5 times in one day, and lied to us.
And I'm tired of this and will get even with them on November 6th, election day.
Who do they think they are !!!!!
Obummer and H Clinton are just plain cowards. They threw Ms. Rice to the wolves. She had her talking points and repeated what she was told to say. That's the fact Jack !
"They also told CBS News “the security teams weren’t “pulled,” that their mission was simply over”."
This is just the way a slimy mortgage broker explained to me how my mortgage payment doubling was in fact only a 2% increase. I told him at the end of the day "it's what I have in my wallet, not what you call it".
This is the same bull s*(&. This is a difference without a distinction. They were told it's dangerous and getting more dangerous where they were and the security left where they were. Who gives a flying rats ass if you call it they left because it was over or they were pulled.
I'm thinking the Ambassador's family and the three other butchered Americans families would agree.
No, news folks are asking ,, why was Stevens in Benghazi ,, at that date ( 9/11 ) and hour ,, was he looking for the guns , that our side gave the Terrorist in Libya ? ? ?
This is a national disgrace and I cannot imagine the pain and agony of the families of the four who lost their lives when they hear the news of how their loved ones did not have to die and who may be alive today if not for this administration. These jokes for public servants need to be run out of town and one month from today they will be.
Evil bas#tards. I hope the propaganda press some day soon realizes they have the same blood on their hands that dear leader has, but then again, they wouldn't care because they would hear, "A job well done comrades". Evil ba$tards.
God help and protect our troops. Please Jesus watch over them.
Well said, AbC! I too fear for our brave soldiers and now for our country since hearing that 4 terrorist are being transferred to the US from Great Britain. There is definitely something brewing.
It seems to me all the pieces are falling into place here to solve this 'who dun it'. Let's look at the known facts.
1) - Obama, despite what the polls are saying, is hurting in this election campaign.
2) - He knows there have been several minor altercations recently in Libya.
3) - He pulls the security details out of Libya one month before 9/11.
4) - The Mohammed video was put on line in July, so it becomes a perfect dupe for the next phase.
5) - Stevens is sent to Benghazi on 9/11, of all days, for incidental reasons.
6) - The attacks happen, the terrorists know where Stevens' safehouse is, but he is killed and so the coverup begins.
Now, what did Obama expect to happen after #5? Did he expect Stevens to be kidnapped, so that he could send in his diplomatic crew, save the day and gain political points for his re-election (much like he did with bin Laden)? I think so.
It went horribly wrong when the Libyans didn't play by his rules and took it upon themselves to go one step further in their jihadist zeal. The left will call my assumptions a wild-a$$ right-wing conspiracy theory and therefore they can dismiss it with impunity.
However, somebody has to answer for the 6 points above (all true facts). Where does the buck stop in this country anymore? Where indeed.
Very good questions Nuke..
I don't put anything past our liar in chief.
I DO know this though. Rice is nothing but a distraction, a misdirection.
The investigation must start with Hillary and obama. They are responsible.
And anything Obama is involved in that requires more than 60 seconds of thought you can bet that Axlerod and Jarret and right there with him..
Let's hope ALL the truth comes out and thank Col. Wood for coming forward.
There are Honorable men in the Military. Men that the truth is more important to than towing the administration line. They swore an oath to protect and defend America not a lying President.
the state dept needs to be held accountable, you know this admin is corrupt when they have instructed the state dept to do what they have. we have F&F, we have huma abedin working in the state dept, we have clinton bypassing congress and giving pakistan money whether we want that or not. where is congress? why are they allowing all this to go on?
I keep asking: "Who is going to hold this administration accountable?"
These leftists live in an alternate universe and until their "universe" is soundly beaten back to the dark underground (via votes) where it belongs, and from where it came, they will continue to play with the lives of human beings. Lives are meaningless to them in their quest to create the world they envision.
It's a crying shame too many Americans don't have a clue to what is happening and worse, why it's happening.
Our black muslim president (according to Madonna) obviously put more faith in the muslim extremist not to attack US embassy (with his Cairo naive appeasement peace to the muslim world) than have faith US elite force to protect ambassador Stevens. In his book, "The audacity of hope" he said: "I will always stand with the muslim, should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."
Yes, indeed, even after the Benghazi attack, he declared to the world in his speech at UN General Assembly: "The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam." Obama is just being true to his own world view and his heart conviction. Why are we surprise or doubt him?
If you notice, there was no attack on the consulate in Benghazi while the security teams were there. So the al Qaeda militiamen probably were intimidated by the firepower possessed by the security teams. Also, nobody says WHO at the State Department wanted to reduce security in Benghazi. Who actually signed off on it and who thought there was no need for ANY security, even though there were all these previous attacks? THAT is what we need to know. Where did the buck stop at the State Department? Hillary Clinton? Don't be surprised if she somehow knew "nothing" about it.
I really think that the 'whole' Libya debacle was a test run for R2P? It was UN driven which is what this administration has always wanted. They armed the 'rebels' to unseat any dictator that wouldn't tow the Soros New World Order idea. And the only way to do it was under the guise of R2P. Soros saw a money opportunity to rule the world. Oil and money deals! The only thing was, the bad guys knew what it really meant for them! The final stage for the caliphate! This administration made a pact with devil himself! And the devil in this situation (unbelievably) isn't Soros. We are facing the real deal evil.
And one more thing I have to ask? Where in the world are all these 'Special Forces' groups that Obama sent over to Africa? We've got several teams there. Why weren't those guys sent in?
I got an email today I will break it down because I don't know if I can post it...He is a retired marine..He said 1000 soldiers have lost their lives in the last 27 months..More then the nine years before ..30 in August alone..50 Nato and U.S. servicemen murdered in inside jobs..The President is AWOL and the military is frustrated..he said they are planning on voting against this President and asking all retired military to do the same..the One million in Florida alone could make the difference in that state...I hope they don't do what I have read and suppress their vote...but since when does something so unconstitutional surprise anyone?? NoNe of this makes any sense and when things don't make sense there is a puzzle piece missing..I sure don't want to find out what it is when it is too late.
This is Liberal Ideology on display. "If we don't have a massive security presence on site, they won't have any reason to hate us". Do not doubt that the reason for this debacle could sound so simplistic. There is no other plausible reason for the stonewalling, knowing what we know.
In my mind, they figured Americans would be greeted as "freedom fighters" THIS time. They didn't even know (I hope) who they were helping. I'm reminded of the fable of the scorpion and the frog. Our best case scenario is that Obama is the Frog, not the Scorpion.
...what do you Americans expect when your Commander in Chief's middle name is HUSSEIN . Once a MUSLIM always a MUSLIM ."
I agree. If it isn't obvious enough to us Americans to wake up and see what's reality about this Obamma Administration. They cannot be trusted. There should be a more thurough investigation on the Fast and Furious and Libya attacks. I agree time is running out to get all the evidence against these ellected administration including the President to have them charged whith treason.
Thank goodness we still have a few GOOD investigative reporters doing their job. I'm so sick and tired of being lied to and expected to believe whatever they say is the truth.
Here's another one that I'll file under "WTH is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth". I was on a website that I visit to attempt to keep up with things going on in MX. Re BP Agent Ivie's death - You know how they came out recently and said "although the investigation isn't complete, they think it points toward "friendly fire". (just like the hit on Bengazi was spontaneous reaction........). Check this out as well as the timeline:
"Mexican troops have arrested two suspects in the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent and the wounding of a second officer in Arizona, Mexican security officials said on Wednesday. The two suspects were detained in a Mexican military operation in the city of Agua Prieta, in Mexico's northern Sonora state, a few miles from the spot where Nicholas Ivie was shot dead early on Tuesday while responding to a tripped ground sensor, a Mexican Army officer, who declined to be named."
"A Mexican police official in Naco, across the border from the Arizona town of the same name, confirmed the arrests, which occurred in the early hours of Wednesday."
"U.S. officials refused to comment on the report of the arrests"..
I'll report...... you decide what you think.
thanks max, what do you think the chances are of univision digging into this the way the exposed Fast and Furious to the Lateeno community last week? No chance, the president of univisions wife was assigned a post at the UN between the time of his sitdown interview (another disaster, without a teleprompter) and the univision expose'. I can't believe they took a day off today, no bad news, no blossoming scandals, no ..... wait, theres a few hours left, i'll finish this rant tomorrow
Thank you Maxine for keeping us aware of your findings on the Mx border and all things to do with it. Far as I'm concerned the lawlessness of zero's administration matches that of the cartels.
