has ferreted out the president's daily brief that informed him within 72 hours of the Sept. 11 attack that the Benghazi attack was a jihadist operation.

Breaking? Was there ever any doubt?

I have maintained since day one of this, and will continue to maintain until I’m proved wrong, that the whole Benghazi debacle was a coverup for something much, much larger and way more sinister. A blown coverup perhaps, but a coverup nonetheless.

That’s fine and dandy, but who’s going to do anything about it. We all keep pointing out the hypocrisy from Dems and this administration, but to what end?

All I see are bullies daring anybody to cross their line.

There doesn’t seem to be enough people willing to do the right thing.

So we need a new approach.

Multiple agencies were involved in excising information, doing so because it revealed sources and methods, dealt with classified intercepts or involved information that was not yet fully confirmed, the officials said.

Horsesh--! We're fighting a low-tech opponent and Obama long ago divulged information that revealed that we were listening to their cell phone traffic. Plus you can reveal the 'what' without revealing the 'how'. It's done every day!

The so-called President suceeded in murdering four more Americans, adding to his huge jihadist tally.

What’s the news?

The irony of this is that Rice may well have been used as a patsy, unaware that she was sent out to spin a misleading tale.

Rice is and always has been your basic AA (Affirmative Action) hire, based either on gender or race. She does what she's told and she doesn't have a backup plan because she needs to dial in to the home base to find out what to say next.

In a related story... water is wet; the sun rises from the east, the overwhelming majority of what was once America doesn’t give a $hit, etc.

Of course he knew; he lied about that, too.

So much for “the most open administration in history.”

But, of course, he lied about that, as well.

Is there really anyone, anywhere, who believes a word this asscl*wn says?

In a blockbuster report, John Solomon, the former Associated Press and Post reporter, has ferreted out the president's daily brief that informed him within 72 hours of the Sept. 11 attack that the Benghazi attack was a jihadist operation.

BS!!
This is just an attempt to add a little time to when the POS knew.
He knew what happened before he hauled a-- to Vegas for fund raising and partying.
Nothing comes before campaigning and partying, nothing.

That’s nice. But so what?

-No politician in DC is going to push articles of impeachment.
-The military isn’t going to say anything.
-No one will be indicted.
- no one will be fired.
-The state run media will bury the story and spin it.
-The majority of the electorate doesn’t care so long as the ebt card works.

Did I miss anything?

This report is just an effort to minimize:

“Okaaaay, ok, he DID know but it doesn’t matter cuz they were protecting SOURCES AND METHODS...that’s standard intelligence work...”

Ahh...hey this was right before a national ELECTION —how freaking stupid do you think we ARE..?

Imagin that after the original 9-11 that under Bush they had concealed that the culprit was OBL. Imagine they sent out cops in the middle of the night with FILM CREWS to frame up and parade innocent Americans in front of the cameras..!

Anyone care to imagine just how high the $hit would have flown?

We all already knew all this. Just goes to show how an election can be stolen from us. With this administration, the MSM and our poor education system, we hardly stood a chance.

I just hope that somethings will chance during the next 4 years. Would love to see the MSM be broken.

Yes, interesting that this is in the Washington Post.

HOWEVER - the real story is not Rice. The real story is about Benghazi and why the White House allowed (or maybe wanted) the ambassador to be killed.

Could be that Benghazi was an attempted kidnap hoax (to make the Magic Obanana look presidental) gone seriously awry.As was Bin Laden capture (stories abound that he died in 2001 in a hospital from complications from kidney failure- dialysis-if he in fact existed at all)This is political theatre for the unwashed masses. There are stories out there that the Navy Seals were suicide bombed on that Chinook to shut them up. Dead men tell no lies, nor truths. Betcha someone high up played cards with Broadwell, showed her the proof and because they knew she could diddle 4star that she was contracted as honey trap for the good General and could extract details in pillow talk. This is total shuck and jive. What she allowed the FBI to walk out of her house with was a bunch of nothing. Could be whatever information she was given or had is now in hands of someone who may actually do something about it. Amazingly enough right after the Bin Laden stuff Patreaus was kicked upstairs. Now he’s walking a tight rope it seems as he probably knows he may end up cannon fodder too, possibly from that heart attack gun, like Andrew Brietbart. What’s the old saying, better to die on your feet than live on your knees. Wikileaks Julian Assange isn’t being chased around the world for nothing. He has all the good dope the rest of us clearly don’t have a NEED TO KNOW. I doubt Broadwell dropped her license in Chandry Levy Park while she was jogging with David Patreaus.Someone put it there and made damn sure the whores in the media put the story out for her to see. Can you hear Hillary and Panetta holding their collective breath in Australia? Just how much wine is there in Australia? Maybe we should all go since she and Leo aren’t back yet.

The president knew within minutes what was happening in Benghazi. The protocol is for him to be personally informed as soon as the message comes into the White House.

Well, the other significant thing here is that this article is produced at The Washington Post. It looks like they must know it’s all coming down, otherwise they would still be on defense.
The Watergate scandal was a political scandal that occurred in the United States in the 1970s as a result of the June 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C., and the Nixon administration's attempted cover-up of its involvement. The scandal eventually led to the resignation of Richard Nixon, the President of the United States, on August 9, 1974, the only resignation of a U.S. President. The scandal also resulted in the indictment, trial, conviction and incarceration of 43 people, including dozens of Nixon's top administration officials.
Reporters at The Washington Post would be wise to dig into the attack at Benghazi as deeply as they did the Watergate break-in. I say, go WaPo! Beat Drudge on this one! How are you going to feel watching Jennifer Griffin and Catherine Herridge of that dreadful "Faux" News Channel accept those Edward R. Murrow awards when it's yours for the taking?

Obama knew? He was watching it as it happened!
The latest wrinkle may be that they were using weapons that he gave them: US weapons and ammo.
But he didn’t do anything. He just likes to watch.

this is pathetic, not one so called reporter has asked where he was.
Did he watch the attacks in the situation room?
Did he give the stand down order?
If not informed right away or not given that order why has no one been fired?
If he knew then why did he give the stand down order?
Why did he go to vegas the next day?
Why did he not deal with this?
Why is the man who made the video still in jail?
Why did he and Clinton lie to the parents?
Did he go to sleep during these attacks?

WHERE THE HELL WAS HE DURING THESE BLEEDING ATTACKS?

For crying out loud I’;d have thought just one, just one reporter could have asked where he was and what did he do during these attacks?

This has to go down as one of the biggest cover ups in the history of America and he gets a free pass off half of this country and a pathetic biased corrupt love fest cult media.

I’,m sick of the media always lying for him instead of them doing their jobs

To: upchuck

Upchuck, you may be more right than me, but I honestly believe this boils down to something as simple as, “We shouldn’t jump to conclusions.” That’s the famous quote of Obama after the attack on Fort Hood.

He just doesn’t want to accept that the Islamic adherents don’t love us. He refuses to act in public like he thinks parts of Islam are rotten to the core. He is more loyal to them, and playing down their evil ways, than being loyal to the U. S., and recognizing the evil for what it is both personally, and publicly.

If you think in terms of the U. S. vs the U. S. S. R., a president more inclined to be sympathetic to the Soviet’s point of view, would have been considered unfit to hold the highest office in our nation.

Him being responsible for our armed forces in time of conflict, could cause doubts and an inability to respond to an attack in real time.

Bud, this is EXACTLY what took place at Benghazi. He blinked, while our people were slaughtered.

It probably wasn’t a high crime or misdemeanor, but his vacillating on this matter, resulted in unnecessary death. His loyalties are all screwed up.

To one degree or another, he’s on their side. He probably doesn’t agree with what they did here, but he does agree with their overall goals.

Knowing how he was raised, I don’t necessarily think it’s his fault that he respects Islam and Socialism more than he does Christianity and Capitalism.

It still makes him unfit to be our leader.

This is something our Congress better address before it costs us far more than it already has.

This my take on it.

Now their argument is they mislead the public because they didn't want the terrorists to know we were on to them... - yet within hours of Bin Laden being killed they told us not only of his death but details that totally blew opportunities to capitalize on the intelligence obtained in the raid.

How the idiots in this country could vote for this sleazeball traitor is beyond me.

Like Chance the gardener, he likes to watch...

Do we know that he did watch it as it was unfolding? I don't think any photos were released of the people in the situation room that night. Maybe he was told verbally what was going on in Libya, told Panetta and the rest to handle things, and then went to bed...he had to fly to Las Vegas the next day for a fundraiser.

Obama's brilliant Middle East policy led to this. Right now it could lead to much bigger things, if the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt gets seriously involved in Gaza and we have the first Egyptian-Israeli conflict since 1973.
