BENGHAZI-GATE...WORSE THAN WATER-GATE

On October 26, President BO (the amateur president) was asked about the reports on CBS and Fox News, a week earlier, that the CIA and our military denied direct requests for help by the Americans fighting for their lives during the seven-hour battle in Benghazi.
Denver TV's Kyle Clark tried to pin Obama down by asking the key question: "Were they denied requests for help during the attack?"

The President's response was:


"... the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. ... I guarantee you that everyone in the state department, our military, the CIA, you name it, had number-one priority making sure that people were safe."

Three very clear directives? Do you believe he gave three very clear directives?

If he did not, he was lying to Kyle Clark and to the American public.

If he DID, then the "clear directives" of the Commander in Chief were disobeyed by the state department, the military and the CIA, as well as whoever "you name it" refers to.

Trouble is, liberal/leftists in particular and Obomacrats in general do not care that President BO (the amateur president) lied about this most egregious set of events.

Such is the moral character of the liberal left.

Such will be the moral character of the leadership of this country is Obama is re-elected.

What a lot of nonsense! You people who hate Romney only slightly less than you hate Obama are going to extremes to try and create deal breakers. But it's all a load of B.S. And you know it.

It looks like he did

If this Fox generated "scandal" had any legs, you'd think Mittens would take time from terrorizing Jeep workers with his lies and start lying about Benghazigate-gate.

This isn't going anywhere, Joe. All this phoney concern for the 4 Americans tragically murdered there and Obama let it happen. Where was all that concern for the 3,000+ dead on 9/11 that may have been prevented if the Bush admin., and Bush himself, hadn't ignored the numerous, documented warnings about Al Qaeda.

How about concern for the 4,500 American troops sent to their death in Bush's needless Iraq war.

Move on, that's ancient history. We've got us a scandal and 4 dead Americans to exploit.

This is LBJ all over again -- micromanaging a war. When one of our facilities is under attack, we should not have to go all the way up to the State Department or the White House to get approval to defend ourselves. Unfortunately, it is our commander-in-chief who is LEAST qualified to handle situations like this.

Under Dubya, 11 of our Embassies were attacked resulting in 53 deaths and 90 injuries. The Foreign Service is a dangerous occupation.

Tonto's Catcher, are you changing your position?

He lied or the attack was mishandled? Make up your mind.

I assume that you would have called in a massive strike that would have made the Libyan situation even more tense. Quick thinking.

In fact this is a non issue. As usual, the likes of Beck and Talent on Loan from Synthetic Morphine have you barking like a trained seal.

WASHINGTON — A CIA security team rushed to the U.S. consulate in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi less than 25 minutes after receiving the first call that the mission was under attack, while a second squad was dispatched by air from the capital, Tripoli, according to a timeline released on Thursday by U.S. intelligence officials.

The timeline is the most detailed accounting to date of the U.S. response to the attack on the consulate and was released to rebut news reports that U.S. officials had delayed a rescue.

“The officials on the ground in Benghazi responded to the situation . . . as quickly and as effectively as possible,” said a senior intelligence official, speaking on condition of anonymity. “There were no orders to anybody to stand down in providing support.”

The timeline also revealed that a nearby CIA annex came under attack twice during the events, with the second assault coming more than seven hours after Islamist extremists first stormed the consulate.

Sure sounds like Watergate to me.

Boy, Faux News really has the seals barking.

Not to worry, Joe. Obama is a one-termer, take that to the bank.

Don't let those messed up polls fool you, Obama loses in a landslide.

Hi Joe! I haven't visited here in a while.

I notice you've stopped calling President Obama "The Child President," and now refer to him as "The Amateur President."

I understand that calling President Obama "the child president" was just one chomosome away from calling him "the boy president," since a "child" male is a "boy."


Is that why you changed? Just wondering.

Cheers,

Fredd: I'm looking forward to it.

SK: He has behaved so amateurishly that he has earned the name President BO(the amateur president).

Let's take a look at what left-wing mouthpiece The Washington Post has to say about it.

The CIA timeline confirms that Wood and Doherty were killed in Benghazi 7Hrs after the WH was told of the attack. A commercial airliner can fly from London to Libya and back in that time. There was plenty of time to send in help from the U.S. air base in Italy.

And before you grasp at that Post headline like a drowning man grasping at straws, nobody is alleging that there was a conspiracy not to send in rescue teams. Where the conspiracy comes in is in covering up the hugely incompetent coverup of how Obama handled the attack. Of course, since liberals get their news from the non-Fox media, they don't have the knowledge to even debate this scandal.

Joe, lets hope that's its another 6-8 months that Shaw. "Doesn't visit your blog". We can do without her STUPID innuendos very easily.

In fact the place even smelled better before.

Tonto's Catcher, since this was very, very possibly a CIA screwup be careful quoting the CIA timeline as authoritative.

Right wing favorite David Petraeus seems to be getting a free ride in the "liberal"(LMAO) press.
