Well, we have known for some time that he knew, and is lying, and I would not be surprised at all if he is even further involved that than that.

However, impeaching him is useless. Asuuming that it happens, which it will not, that would leave us with Biden as president...and if not him, then Boehner.

We are in serious, serious trouble, and I really do not see any way out of it at all.

Approximately 40 people worked at the Annex, and this number probably includes locals (translators, spies, etc). This was a fairly large operation for a covert foreign location. They're probably all held to secrecy STILL and can't talk, OR (AND A BIG 'OR'), WERE THESE PRISONERS BEING HELD AT THE ANNEX AND THAT'S WHY WE HAVEN'T HERD A PEEP OUT OF THEM? What I want to know is, DID OBAMA DENY ASSISTANCE TO ALL OF THEM?, or had all but the four dead Americans been 'rescued' by the by Doherty/Woods by the time requests for assistance were made? In any case, Obama's failure to attempt to rescue Americans in distress is clearly 'dereliction of duty' as Commander-In-Chief.

IMPEACH OBAMA FOR COVER-UP:

1) 0bama’s failure to attend security briefings.
2) The draw-down of security at the Embassy PRIOR TO 9/11.
3) Ignoring pleas from Stevens for more security THE DAY OF THE ATTACK.
4) DENYING troops to rescue Americans in distress DURING THE ATTACK.
5) Was the 'Annex' a prison? 40 people at that location?
6) That Stevens or CIA was doing nefarious things; supplying weapons to terrorists, etc.

The COVER-UP started in the Rose Garden with 0bama's vague words, but became official when Susan Rice did a PROPAGANDA TOUR FOR THE PURPOSE OF DOWNPLAYING THE INCIDENT IN AN ATTEMPT TO COVER-UP FAILURES AND MINIMIZE DAMAGE TO OBAMA'S RE-ELECTION BID.

A COVER-UP TO SAVE HIS RE-ELECTION!!!

Welcome to a closer version to the truth, Washington ComPost. Why weren’t you reporting this story a few weeks or months ago where it could have actually done damage to Obama? Oh yeah, you’re in the tank.

As far as most FReepers are concerned, Obama should be impeached and kicked out of office. I doubt your paper will be calling for that though.

The question is why? I predict obama will claim all of this was done to fool al qaeda into getting sloppy so we could catch their operatives. You wait. That will be their story.

He can’t escape his dereliction of duty as Commander-In-Chief by not rescuing Americans in distress FOR OVER 7 HOURS, no matter WHAT he says. He must be held to account for his incompetence.

I just learned that the original number of MANPADS floating around Libya was not 20,000 —it was 22,000.

It was mostly a mix of SA-7’s and SA-24’s.

I understand that the Annex op had recovered about 5,000 missiles, mostly from buying them back from loyal people.

The implications for airtravel over the next 10 years or more are huuuuge.

So, now the Administration can try to claim that it would have been detrimental to National Security interests to reveal too many details of what truly took place in Benghazi...

But to blatantly score brownie-points with Jihadists by supporting the video fallacy, to lie to the face of Ty Woods’ father and the other relatives of the massacre, and to basically enable the imprisonment of a U.S. citizen for simply exercising his First Amendment rights, is despicable and unconscionable by a President.

Susan Rice was ordered by 0bama to appear on national television yet he'll act like he didn't know what she was going to say or that she got the info. from 'intelligence'??? The '72 HOURS' time frame lapsed long before Rice went on her propaganda tour. She went on the Sunday news programs 120 HOURS after the attack.

2. Throw a March on Washington Part II, but this time target the Republicans in charge who are waffling. Loudly. Guaranteed media coverage.

They don’t have any excuses. And that’s why Obama is going to keep his mouth shut until his metaphorical fingernails are pulled out, and Hillary will probably stay out of the country until she has to live on a ship and be the “Woman Without a Country.”

I see a lot of FReepers are giving this a great big yawn. We know he knew. So what else is new?

But this... This first sentence of the article is what is telling.

“In a blockbuster report, John Solomon, the former Associated Press and Post reporter...”

IF (big IF) the mainstream media (Ass. Press et al) does pick up and run with this story... it will be the end of the Kenyan. IF (big IF) the MSM decides to report even the fundamentals, it will mean an impeachment for B. Hussein.

I think - overall - this story will go someplace. Why? Not because Obama was responsible for 4 deaths. No sir. But because of the sex scandal (Petraeus) involved.

Americans do loves them sex scandals.

To at least let people know why thousands of Americans and a few American cities will be lost sometime soon in the future. We are being governed and protected by inept liars. The Muslim terrorists will roll right through them like butter on bread.

Three Facts

Fact One:

1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.

Plus Fact Two:

2) No rescue mission was attempted.

Equals Fact Three:

3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.

FOCUS, people , focus! Spontaneous, schmontaneous, subcutaneous, igneous, or just plain ignoramish? Who lied to who isn’t the real important question here. The important question is who denied help to the guys on the ground in Benghazi. Everybody seems to admit there were at least three calls for help. None came. Sending an un-armed plane from Tripoli doesn’t really count as “serious assistance” . Somebody told Woods help was on the way or he wouldn’t have lit up a target. Who told him and WHO STOPPED it? Never mind the actual sneakyass purpose of Steven’s mission whatever the bleep it was. When things go South there has to be an escape plan. NO ONE, including the Presentdent has authority to let guys die. Responsibility for letting it happen, oh yeah! But authority to order it? That’s krap and is impeachable.

"If this information was too confidential to share with the public, at the very least the president...."

At the very least, the president and his cabinet shouldn't have had a filmmaker arrested, falsely charged, and imprisoned for allegedly inciting a violent attack on a US facility - no matter how "shady" the filmmaker appeared to be.

They could have just said "we are evaluating the situation, yada, yada, yada, etc." if they needed to buy time to protect intelligence sources, or other classified info.

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

Republicans in Congress will not address this unless we give them NO other option. Otherwise, they will continue the dog and pony routine, hiding behind the skirttails of their democratic “colleagues.”

Is their ANYONE here who doesn’t agree with that?

If you agree, then what are you willing to do about it?

If your answer is anything less than what I suggested in my previous post, then shut the heck up and stop complaining. It is what it is. It will never change unless we march on Washington to make them see that we will accept NOTHING other that justice for 41 people who were left to die.

O: Yeah, but that was, like, in an intelligence briefing. I never read those things. They’re boring. I get all my information from surfing You Tube. I found Innocence of Islam on there, and sure enough, I got a lump in my throat when I caught the video of the attack in Benghazi a few minutes later, so I knew they were both related. Those boring CIA-types like Petraeus kept urging me to get into the briefing room, saying they needed me to ok a plan of action to save Stevens, but those videos were much too important for another boring briefing, man. So I let ‘em wait, told Petraeus to go get himself a girl friend, so he’d stop being so intense.

Obama & his minions are trying to say now that they knew it was a terrorist attack by that Sunday after, but they still are trying to excuse what Rice said by saying that she was ignorant of the facts because she was just using ‘talking points’ that were handed to her.
They knew the day of and day after her appearances that what she said was wrong, AND THEY DIDN”Y COME OUT RIGHT AWAY AND CORRECT IT.

The article also states they knew who some of the insurgents were. Obama and Biden, during debates and otherwise, claimed they wanted to bring the attackers to justice. It has been well over 2 months. No one is being sought out. Seems Obama and Biden looked into the camera and lied directly to the american people. That is not to mention our dead soldiers parents.
