    We are getting to used to having to know every damn thing our leaders do,, maybe for security reasons they can't tell anyone the truth. But no the right. Has to play football with our operations.GET A LIFE!!!!!!!! I got an idea. Next time you see a horrific accident walk up to the officer taking the report and ask him what happened. He will tell you to get back on the sidewalk and mind your Own damn business.

    Three critical questions about the Libya attack
    These questions fall into three broad categories: intelligence, security and policy.
    Intelligence. The administration’s original version of events – that this was a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-Muslim YouTube video – hasn’t held up. After nearly two weeks of dissembling, they’ve admitted it was a terrorist attack, planned in advance, by an Al Qaeda cell in Libya. But shouldn’t our intelligence community have known about this cell in advance?
    Security. If our intelligence community had suspicions that Al Qaeda and other armed radical militias were operating in Libya, and posed a threat to our diplomats and facilities, why didn’t the State Department arrange for adequate security? We need to know why.
    There were no Marine guards at the Benghazi Consulate. Yet there had been a recent spate of bombings against Americans, and an IED attack in June that damaged the entrance to the Consulate.
    Ambassador Stevens feared he was on an Al Qaeda hit list. We know this because his diary was recovered in the wreckage of the Benghazi Consulate by the media. Indeed, nearly three weeks after the attack the FBI and other US personnel haven’t been near the Consulate because it’s still not safe. If the area is too dangerous today, ...


    Three critical questions about the Libya attack

    Ambassador Stevens feared he was on an Al Qaeda hit list. We know this because his diary was recovered in the wreckage of the Benghazi Consulate by the media. Indeed, nearly three weeks after the attack the FBI and other US personnel haven’t been near the Consulate because it’s still not safe. If the area is too dangerous today, why did we think it was safe three weeks ago?
    Policy. The Obama administration has been an active proponent of rapid and radical change in the Middle East. We helped remove President Mubarak in Egypt, yet the newly elected Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi has reversed Mubarak’s pro-American policies and suggested Egypt should reevaluate its peace treaty with Israel. President Morsi has also warned the US needs a new policy in the Middle East, while at the same time looks to us for massive economic assistance and loan forgiveness. Why?
    The Obama administration led the war in Libya to topple Col Qaddafi and usher in a new democratic government. We knew some of the rebels had Al Qaeda connections. Did we look the other way when we armed them? Why? The Obama administration is in danger of making the same mistakes the Bush administration made after toppling Saddam Hussein in 2003, and the Carter administration made ushering out the Shah of Iran in 1979. When a dictator is shoved aside you better have a plan for what takes his place, because his departure creates a power vacuum that ruthless, radical elements will rush in to fill.
    What is our policy in the Middle East going forward? The Arab uprising toppled autocratic governments, in most cases with a major assist from the United States. Is our job now finished?

    Usually when a question is posted on Sodahead, the facts are presented, and then the question is asked. Here nothing relevant has been given except for a video from Fox news! Fox Nesw are conservative- of course they will disagree with Obama's handling of foreign policy! Where are the stats, videos and quotes from a a left and independent website or analyst so that we can make up our own opinions?! This isn't a question, this is just trying to get a reaction out of conservatives on this site.

    Unbelievable ! So disorganized administration. When lies are channeled by the few in power it troubles the consciences of people down the line. Most Americans whether working for the administration simply cannot accept the status quo when their conscience troubles them .

    The statement helps them rationalize the deception.

    No, all do not lie and some lie more than others.

    The biggest liars on average are leftists.

    a movie did it, not his muslims. in fact, a road and a bridge jumped up and made that movie. a human couldn't do it. no one made that movie. it had help from infrastructure. and bush is to blame for us hating muslims.so obama didn't actually lie. he believes in islam. he didn't lie, it's just that the facts got in the way of what he believes.

    The facts are out. It is undeniable but oh how the spin keeps coming!

    Is it any wonder the other countries look at us in disbelieve?

    Talking with different friends/acquaintances around the world it has become a joke about how truth is twisted - so amazing (and those who keep the spin going do it with a straight face) - very scary!

    Was Obama's mouth moving? Was Joe Biden's yap flapping? Hell, yes, they were either lying their asses off or they're even more incompetent than we ever imagined!

    Of course. They are not fooling anyone. It was dereliction of duty to NOT provide more protection to our installations on the anniversary of September 11. This is the kind of response that you get when you scrub your anti-terror training from all mention of ISLAM. Put your head up uranus and pretend that you have changed Islam with your weak apologies.

    Someone from the State Dept urgently dispatched the Ambassador to Benghazi. He went in a hurry and tried to go incognito and under the radar. He left his armored SUV in Tripoli and used CIA operatives as security. Once in Benghazi, he walked into a trap. A well staged trap that they knew everything he did and his schedule. Benghazi did not have an Embassy or a Consulate, it had a rented villa (perimeter wall being only security)that was used for Al Qaeda / Qatari Special Forces (less than 30% of which are Qatari) liaison, recruiting and deployment to Syria. Amb. Stevens was Mr Al Qaeda, the go to guy (google it). So the attackers were foreigners, were masked and had tracked vehicles - a Military unit - not rebels (my gut feeling Qatari Special Forces - especially with Holder being in Qatar at the time). And the State Department sent him there to get whacked. A bunch of sensitive documents went missing there. Operatives lists, safe houses etc. Why weren't these kept at a secure location like the Embassy in Tripoli. Some how his personal journal survived and CNN found it.

    My first thought was this would be pinned on Iran like a Gulf of Tonkin. Nothing has developed on that front yet - maybe the Oct Surprize. Next that it is a fast and furious senario with Mr Fix It in Qatar to supervise the action.
