Sent to everyone on my e-mail list. My family is so wrapped up in their own lives. They don’t pay attention. I’ll be they have no idea what this is all about. It makes me sick to my stomach.

Thank goodness somebody at CBS is asking some questions. I wonder how long he has a job?

I agree with Rush when he says that liberals will throw Obama under the bus to save liberalism. When it becomes clear that he will lose, liberals will blame Obama personally and say it is his fault, not any deficiency in liberalism...

“We may have to wait ‘til a top insider comes out and spills the beans....I'm optimistic.”

That would be H Clinton during her Presidential bid against Obama in 2016 (the Constitutional term limit will be abolished by that time).

R&R will never say anything, even if somehow by some fluke/miracle they beat the O - perhaps some General on his death bed, like Ham, but that will be decades in the future. Presupposing that someone actually prints it. Don't hold your breath.

Someone mentioned yesterday that news outlets do not like to cite other news outlets as sources for a report. They are too competitive to do that. They want you to believe that they have their own top secret highly placed sources. I hope they are pumping those sources and hoping to one up Fox on something new.

News outlets also do not like to waste headline space on a good story by releasing it on Friday night or Sat. They get more bang for the buck releasing it on Sun. or Mon.

Let’s wait and see if more about this pops up tomorrow or early next week. There’s still plenty of time for it to make an impact.

Shamefully it won’t be covered. And that should scare the living daylights out of all of us...

Yes. Imagine anything remotely similar to this during a republican administration, two weeks from an election. I pray enough people access alternate media and begin demanding the journalist-celebrities either do their jobs or be forced from the spotlight.

My guess is, on something like this, Great Leader's people (and he is an owned man) are pulling every string they have to keep the story out of the news. How much longer they can they do so? No idea. But I keep coming back to 'what if' this were a republican administration. We should all be very scared, as you say, about the one-sided Pravda-like integrity of the media that stands before our nation every day to tell us what is important and what is worth ignoring.

Fox News is running a “special’ report on this on Sat and Sunday. Unfortunately the times are somewhat suspect for what should be a high profile news item if one wishes it be watched by more than two or three people tired of the football games.

I predict it will not be covered on any of the MSN sunday “news” panels, 60 minutes, 20-20, Frontline, or even the food channel.

It’s not going to become a story beyond FOX until another news outlet is able to independently verify the info.

No one is going to use FOX as their source.

Jennifer Griffin developed sources with first-hand knowledge, apparently in Benghazi. She says they’re rock-solid, and she will protect them. I have no doubt that her superiors at FOX also know who they are, confidentially. That’s how it is done.

Huge kudos to her.

Any other outlet that runs this story needs to be as sure of the facts as she apparently is. That’s how it is done right. No, they are not happy about being scooped, especially by FOX.

Consider, too, that this info, valid as it may be, may have been leaked to FOX. That’s how major scandals often start. Somebody wanted the truth out there.

Rememeber Deep Throat?

1972.

Before the Presidential election. And the perps got re-elected.

Rolled out then, not over days, but over two years. Plus some.

This stuff takes time.

On Yahoo News, it is not anywhere near the top link neither is it on the front page.

However, it was their TOP read story. Seems the American people who are aware are actively rebelling against the press on this story.

The Dems may survive this, and the MSM may think it has won in their quest to control the media narrative and protect Dems and Obama. But they will be damaged more than ever. At some point they will all disappear just like Newsweek, and they will blame everyone but themselves, just like Dems do.

“At what point does this become a story beyond Fox News?”

Easy answer: Wednesday, November 7, 2012, or never.

As Abraham told the rich man in hell who wanted somebody from the afterlife to go to earth to warn his sinful brothers:

"Even if somebody came back from the dead,they wouldn't listen."

Precisely, because they have no principles and no honor.

I think it is going to take a local media person to ask the hard questions and pin the president down

A local Denver reporter did this yesterday, and I think the video is still up on freerepublic.com.

From the article: Among other things, Panetta said that “...the basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on…” <<<

I thought they knew instantly that it was just a simple armed protest against an obscure You-tube video...../s

The media think that the Democrats answer to “a higher calling”. They’ve already said that about Obama. If you answer to a higher calling, well, then, it’s OK to coverup for them.

Sad, but true.

If the LSN uses this story...they’ll emphasize that hero Ty Woods broke with orders to save others in the attack. Ignoring the fact that he gave his own life so others may live.

May the Good Lord give his parents peace and strength for being so outspoken.

Even better. Some of the conservative PACs could run the ads in conjunction with the Romney campaign.

We would never have read a single New York Times, Washington Post article on any of the following if they occurred during the Obama administration:

Abu Gharaib

Baghdad Museum looting

Enron

Not a single errant missile striking any civilians in the war zones.

Nor would they have been covered by MSNBC, CBS,NBC,ABC or CNN

I am not certain we would have seen much about 9/11 either.
