Clinton gets accountability report on Benghazi attacks
By Andrew Quinn
Mon Dec 17, 2012 3:18pm EST

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday received an official review of the September attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, setting the stage for testimony on an incident that prompted a political furor and sharp questions about security at U.S. diplomatic facilities overseas.

**SNIP**

The committee has been meeting in private and State Department officials have declined to discuss almost all specifics of the Benghazi attack pending its reports.

The findings are expected to cover questions on whether enough attention was given to potential threats and how Washington responded to security requests from U.S. diplomats in Libya.

Imagine a universe if you will, where the main stream media would have spent 1/100th the time on Benghazi as they have on the recent tragic domestic incident. Should we not be demanding that government also give the Benghazi incident significant attention ? In both cases American Citizens died.

I was thinking the same thing. Except for FX, there was a strange silence on Benghazi, while on this horrible school tragedy, the media covers every tiny bit and repeats, repeats, repeats same trivial info.

The single question that will derail any intentions she has of pursuing future political office is why she failed to provide resources to rescue the foreign service personnel being assaulted.

So Hillary has the report, and can now make up a story based upon the official findings.

It’s going to be a doozy folks.

Did her secretary drop the report by her house, or did Hillary logon via the VPN and download the report herself?

No, the key question is why civilian Ambassador Stevens was 500 miles away from the U.S. embassy carrying out an intelligence operation that bypassed the CIA Chief of Station 1 mile away.

...because we all know that the CIA was bypassed because whatever Stevens was doing was something that CIA Chief Petraeus would have gone public with if he hadn’t been bypassed.

Imagine a universe if you will, where the main stream media would have spent 1/100th the time on Benghazi as they have on the recent tragic domestic incident.

Nobody died at Abu Ghraib, but it was on the front page of the NYTimes for 38 consecutive days.

Hundreds of citizens of a foreign nation were shot with guns we dumped into the hands of their criminal gangs, and the morons who get their news from the NY Times read barely a peep. They still don't know what it was about.

Our ambassador was murdered. Two hero Navy Seals charged to the embassy and saved dozens of lives while giving their own. Their repeated requests for backup were ignored by this Administration, who received those requests in real time. Aware of their pleas, the president declined their requests and went to bed. After a seven hour firefight without assistance, the Seals were finally killed by enemy fire. Then the Administration spent weeks denying the Seals posthumous recognition of their heroism and knowingly inventing a lie to cover up their guilt in the deaths of all involved.

Again the NY Times picks lint out of it's navel and pretends it's not even a newsworthy story. They haven't even bothered to interview a single survivor or witness.

And in only one of the cases, it was up to the Obama Regime to protect said Americans.

The prezzy supposedly cut funding for school security. There may be a common theme. Basically that Americans are getting very little protection for our annual 2 trillion in government debt bills. And just look at what will happen to the defense budget if the prezzy take us over the cliff.

4 dead Americans, one being our ambassador, and it’s considered by Al Reuters as an “incident”.

can they tell us where obama was when informed
where did he go
did he go and watch the attack live time in the situation room
did he give the stand down order.
did HE GO BACK TO SLEEP as the atacks took place
why did he go to Vegas knowing it were an attack
why did he refuse to call it an attack
why did he blame this on a video
who gave the stand down order and why?

Get obama on the stand and demand to answer some of these questions.

Oh, I'm sure that's one of the reasons. But I remember a day when journalists would be outraged if they knew that the government was hiding witnesses of a major news event because they didn't want the details being known.

Back then, it would have inspired them to dig deeper and harder to uncover the facts.

Now, they just sit in the corner and wait for the government to tell them what they should write.

The Dems have realized that if they keep the economy on perpetual life-support, the underclass and enablers in federal, state and local employment will vote for the “mommy party.”

If is a tough challenge for the GOP to inspire public confidence in what is left of capitalism by engineering a recovery as the minority in the Senate when so many economic chickens are coming home to roost and the tax and spend tidal wave continues.
