Can't say I disagree with any of that. The only thing I disagree with is focusing on Obama and his willy gang of misfits. This betrayal goes much deeper.
Swills, I'm curious to learn your take on the attack. Please correct me if I'm wrong but from your posts I decipher that you feel that the US government either allowed for or enabled the attack to happen. Am I correct? If so, in your opinion what benefits/net gain would the Executive branch get for doing this? How would the President gain politically from such an event happening on his watch?

I agree Italy was in range...and there are some GOOD questions to be asking about why there weren't reaction forces on a real short leash at U.S. facilities there to react to Libya, Egypt or wherever trouble might burst at the moment.
Vague sources.... Like 'Deep Throat'?

It still blows me away that people take nondescript, vaguely defined, "sources" seriously.
I made a decent analogy with it being a Tupac kind of day... Here's the recap inside a more recent thread: MUST WATCH: Retired Lt. Col. and Special Operations Planner for 15 years, Obama ordered no response

This is very shocking for this to happen, to tell your guys to "stand down". We all kn ow this is shocking for the CIA to say this..With everything that's been happening, I'm surprised they didn't have the army there in minutes backing up the embassy. So there has to be a legitimate explanation for not going in.. But than again, We will never know the truth as always..SO it just becomes a mystery..

Oh and another thing where are our Military leaders?
What the heck is going on?
I think this admin is at cross purposes with traditional military advice and are running amok while the military has to sit around and take idiot orders from the traitors who are selling us down the river, or they have been replaced by people who do not care about the US.

First denial by National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor...
Spokesman: Obama did not deny requests for help in Benghazi
The White House on Saturday flatly denied that President Barack Obama withheld requests for help from the besieged American compound in Benghazi, Libya, as it came under on attack by suspected terrorists on September 11 th .
"Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email.
Yahoo news? email? So that's the WH saying they didn't deny assistance, and yesterday the CIA said pretty much the same..
Who does that leave as the bus is bearing down?

Why did they kill the Ambassador instead?
WANTED FOR MANSLAUGHTER AND TREACHERY
Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to “stand down.” Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire
By not obeying the order to "stand down" these seals might have screwed up a kidnap attempt.

The thought of turning several companies of marines lose in there with air support MUST have been far more horrifying than what was taking place.

What experience does Obama have? Maybe four years of being President and Commander-in-Chief, for starters.
Er umm... Both the government and the public knew who did 09-01-01 the same exact day it happened. Now what about 9-11-12? Just the government knew. .As for the public, oh we were just lied to, that's all. Also, I wasn't referring to experience, but the fact that he is inept and unqualified for the position he holds.
