    Default Benghazi

    Just got through watching a 60 minute story on Benghazi, and thought they made an attempt to tell what happened over there. How in the hell did we let the administration off the hook for flat out LYING to us? American's have become a bunch of candy asses and wimps! How do we have an embassy in al-quida's front yard and have no security? Why has it taken so dam long for the media to put a story out there about it?(half-assed as it was). Why was Hillary not FIRED for this?

    Sorry for the rant, I'm just still mad as hell about this. Can't believe there aren't millions more out there that aren't.
    Semper Fi regards.

    Because the Main Stream Media is liberal and are no longer reporters, but propagandists instead. That is the short answer.

    Just saw this on Breitbart as well.

    Does CBS have some "ulterior" motive by airing this now ... far enough in advance of 2016 (or even 2014) elections so that by then it will be "old news" and not interfere with Hillary's campaign? Do we believe that CBS has found a conscience?

    There's a terrific book titled _Under Fire: the Untold Story of the Attack in Benghazi_ It's by Fred Burton and came out about 4-5 months ago. What he tells supports this story.

    So, there really were some forces close enough to help after all.
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...t-to-benghazi/

    I can understand why they possibly could not give details at the time, back in Sept, 2012. However, couldn't they have "covered" for these fellas presence as people who were protecting the Tripoli embassy? Don't embassies have some right to have some military protection? It says that some of the group involved were left behind to protect the Tripoli embassy.

    According to this article there was mention of these reinforcements in Panetta's testimony, but seems that most of us missed that.

    If there was some diplomatic question about helping the people in danger, why didn't the POTUS just call the Libyan POTUS and tell him, "We're going to protect our personnel. Period." Some might even use the adage, "It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission."

    Another perspective on why the WH might want to cover up the facts of Benghazi .

    The primary source for the 60 minutes story lied to them. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18560_16...nghazi-report/
