Bob Shieffer has Darryl Issa as his first guest on Face the Nation, and Shieffer is letting Issa talk! Amazing. The truth is leaking out fast. Shieffer ends with "The question is "Why were the talking points changed." Burson-Marsteller public relations execs must be freaking out!

It took CBS long enough! Most of this information was available last October. But if CBS had shown interest then...it could have impacted Obama’s reelection.

So they wait until May...CBS is shocked...shocked...that a terror attack could have happened on September 11...the anniversary of the big one.

Don’t trust anything the MSM does or says.

By ‘truth’, do you mean ‘facts’? The reason I ask is because, I can assure you, they are not one in the same.

Well I give CBS props and I am really surprised.
I also congratulate their reporter Sherl Atkisson for her great reporting on Fast and Furious starting lst year but continuing today.

IF the media had done the job they say is theirs to do 0dumbo would have never won.

I remember when BS had Susan Rice on last fall and was incredulous when she was spewing the video talking points.

....looks like the jig is up. The whistle blowers must have stuff only Issa has and it all is coming out on Wednesday. The MSM knows they can’t cover on this and Odungo has been caught with his knickers down. Lying to the world during his UN speech, we knew it and the world knew it.

Here’s my read: The Pretender in Chief is going to try and throw Hillary under the bus. Things never go well for ANYONE who tries to do that to a Clinton. The MSM is much more interested in preserving Hillary’s reputation for 2016 with a dumbed down American populace than in saving the Great Pretender. Benghazi will blow up, Fast and Furious will blow up, and anything else that will stick to the wall will blow up. Hillary, who left her post after “evading” the truth for reasons of “National Security” will ride in on the white horse, will Huma in the saddle, to “save the day”.

They're getting out in front to let off some pressure and then act like it's no big deal.

"It took CBS long enough"

In all fairness, Sherl Atkisson of CBS news has been on the story from the beginning. But you correct, the rest of CBS news has been ignoring it.

Is it a big deal ?

Reason I ask is because these 'whistleblowers' are being touted or implied to be, the 'survivors' or 'witnesses' to the incident.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe they were 'there' during the attack.

I agree, Hillary is going down as she richly deserves. Obama is in serious trouble and he’s got to make a major sacrifice to appease the DC gods. Hilliary will take a lot of little people with her but the One will be spared.

You mean like the ONE SHIP ALONE, that we caught, that contained 4 MILLION POUNDS of weaponry.... or the fact that our enemies use weapons that 'we' sold them against us everywhere, and have for a long time?

Drones are used all over the world. Guess who invented, patented, manufactures and sells most drones to the entire world, including the enemies of Israel and the United States ?

Israel.

I am not so sure. It seems like Obama voters are determined to vote for him no matter what. There was enough out there for them to waver but they have no waver in them. They are in the tank.

I am angry at the media for not doing their job, they have merely been cheerleaders for the libs, but at this point not sure it matters. So many lib voters are so brainwashed I am not sure anything can wake them up.

The WH and all military commands in the area WATCHED while this went down. Important military commands were and have been relieved, including Army, Navy, Marines (Air Force is one I don’t know about or care, since their religion stance has come out). We’re talking assistance sitting on the ground at Sigonella, in Rota, and aloft: waiting for cross-border authority.

This means that 1000s of men and women—and now, their families—knew and now know what went down.

The implication of the deaths and relief of commands, along with the derelction of duty by the sitting President of the United States, his advisors and Cabinet members...is that we could suffer the same fate as the men in Benghazi: wounded, bleeding out while shooting .50 cals while waiting for available drones to destroy the already-painted targets, paying with their lives while so-called leaders and ‘commanders’ WATCH THEM (or US) DIE because the President of the US cannot be found.

Our enemies know this, too.

Thus, we know that enemies of the US who want us dead, if not in cahoots with the leaders and commanders of the US who don’t give a rat’s ass about whether we live or die, AND, want to disarm us to boot, put every last man and woman in the unenviable position of being absolutely certain that we can only count on ourselves and those people we trust. We are The Last Men Standing.

May God Damn Those Traitors to the fate they so richly deserve.

Well... that's because long ago 'man' figured out there was great power in 'numbers'. Man also figured out ways to misuse his powers.

It is plausible but Obama is the bigger liability right now for any 2014 and 2016 ambitions. CBS did not become “honorable” overnight and my guess is a political calculation is at work. These are not honorable people and replacing Obama with Biden may be seen as the price that must be paid to hold ground in 204 and push Hillary out front in 2016. Biden is stupid and easily manipulated so why not?

Of course, this whole thing could be a molehill and CBS is just doing pre-emptory damage control by the appearance of a bona fide investigation. I think another poster suggested that and he (or she) may be right.

yes, but removing a sitting president, the first one of color, is simply not possible. But rendering him a lame duck, holding the House and taking the Senate is doable.

The real deal is what naked Adam replied - “the woman that YOU (God) gave me did deceive me...”.

Of course that was bogus, but goes to show that the first sin immediately brought forth a plan to wiggle out of the consequences of being found out. And it did not fly.

Very possible, but to little to late IMHO. As someone has already noted. Who ordered the stand down, if a stand down was in fact ordered (and we know it was) is the real question. That is the "off with their head" offense. I predict lots of finger pointing if the GOP has the guts to "go there", which remains to be seen.

The CBS newsroom must be gnashing its teeth seeing one of their own reporting something detrimental to Ubama and the Democrats. They’re not supposed to do that kind of thing.
