Yeaaaaaah. They had two months to come up with with a bs story line, and this is it.
The republicans need to get a name, and start turning the screws.
No more answers in the passive voice. “Intelligence was provided.”
WHO provided the damn cover story?
I disagree - the fact that there was a cover story and talking points is minor.
The real story is that Obama failed to properly protect the Americans in Benghazi.
US forces were ready, willing, and able to go to the rescue. Obama did not send them.
*That* is the biggest scandal of this event. (We may later find that Obama was running an illegal arms smuggling operation to Al Qaeda affiliates. If that were found to be true it rivals the fact that we know now. - Obama left 41 Americans to die in an attack by al qaeda. if not for the former SEALs at the annex, they would have all died. Those SEALs were even at one point (at least) ordered *NOT* to help.
What we know now is HUGE.
