DEVASTATING! CBS Publishes Benghazi Investigation Pummels Administration
thegatewaypundit.com ^ | 5-5-2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/05/2013 5:24:41 PM PDT by servo1969

CBS released information on the Benghazi 9-11 massacre today that could potentially bring down the Obama Administration.

Buried in their report (down in paragraph eight) CBS reported, “Throughout the night, sources say Americans on the ground in Libya at times felt helpless and abandoned… But they were told immediate help wasn’t available.” But, counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help. CBS reported:

Throughout the night, sources say Americans on the ground in Libya at times felt helpless and abandoned.

“We relied on Washington for dispassionate assessment,” one eyewitness told CBS News. “Instead, they [Washington officials] were asking us what help we needed. We answered: ‘Send reinforcements!’ ”

But they were told immediate help wasn’t available.

Embassy personnel say they repeatedly asked the Defense Attache on site in Tripoli for military assistance.

“Isn’t there anything available?” one Embassy official says he asked. “But the answer was ‘no.’”

“What about Aviano?” the official pressed, referencing the NATO air base with US assets in northeastern Italy. “No,” was the answer.

Two of the four Americans killed that night died hours after the first attack began…

…Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack. National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor told CBS News the CSG was not needed.

Hard to tell how many of 'em it'll take. Fur shur the Hildabeast unless she can prove AlQaida infiltration into the State Department command structure ~ ..............

Taking down Obama is another story. He's as stupid as any person to ever serve as President ~ and maybe a tad more stupid than that.

This is the EIEIO President. We'll need to remove all the white Democrats along with him all at the same time.

Sooner or later, this kind of thing had to happen. Do you continue to run cover for the corrpupt administration, or do you back off and protect a family member??? That’s what it’s come down to.

If the attack had occurred the week after the election, those four people would still be alive.

Hillary is going to throw Ozone under the bus and say she asked him about more security and he said no. She needs the media and they will protect her for 2016. She trashed him in her presidential run, she’ll do it again now.

In her mind it doesn’t matter that she’s just as guilty as Ozone. Libs have no conscience. I hope they both go down.

Yeah, the news media is going to try and get this set up where Hillary is the hero and the Obama/Biden administration is at fault. Kill two birds with one stone: help Hillary, hurt Biden.

The meme according to the doufous Democrat on Chris Wallace show this morning says they are going to blame it all on a Republican vote to cut certain expenses in State Department regarding to embassy defenses.

They will do the 'George Bush did it' thing again.

However, George wasn't there!

To the contrary.

Sharyl Attkisson has been CBS's bulldog on this, she knows the full story...she is also looking to get out of her contract early with CBS....WEDNESDAY is going to be very bad for the little boy king. It will be interesting to watch how he acts over the next few days....I'm guessing he'll go into the petulant 14 year old smart ass he's accustom to when he's exposed..

If she is considering a 2016 run, she will not take the risk of alienating the Obama money men and zombies.

But she will absolutely not take the blame nor will the MSM allow it to be pinned on her.

She and Bill are going to have to devise a way to divide the baby.

If Bozo is impeached, Biden would be president, and that could embolden him enough to run against Hillary for 2016, with the advantage of the bully pulpit.

Anybody who was following the story closely on Free Republic as much as six months ago suspected most of what’s in these reports - all that was needed was verification by a governmental authority or a media that took its role as a watchdog of government seriously.

It’s almost amusing that CBS is so far behind the average Freeper (and only there because they couldn’t hide from the story any longer).

Nah. She could destroy Hussein and still have the money men. They’re finished with Obama as if he’s a used condom. The man’s a lame duck. No gun control, and a healthcare system that is going to fall apart on its own according to its architect.

Obama should be impeached - and Hilary Clinton should be prosecuted for dereliction of duty. I am grateful for the congressmen who would not let go of this story!! They are heroes. But it is unbelievable that CBS would actually be fair! Maybe they see the writing on the wall - the investigation that is breaking - and they don't want to be caught with pants down.

I've been reading the tea leaves. I suspect he'll see this as a good week to divert everyone's attention with some kind of military action against Syria. His Flying Monkeys have been moving the stage scenery into position. If the balloon goes up the media will fall into line.
