Finally, an end to the right wing Benghazi porn.

Or is it?

Nope, it's not, because some people are interested in the truth, they are just interested in whatever lie they can use to support their own pre-conceived world view.

But at least now there are facts to prove the Benghaziers wrong, so now they have a position firmly planted right next to Birthers.

Well, it might be. Especially if your tactic to stop the conversation is to shout others down with cries of "CRAZY!!!!"

Oh, yeah. you're right.
No one died in Benghazi.
There wasn't even an attack.
President Obama responded in a correct manner,, in that case.

What else is there to shout?

For weeks the Right Wing Obama haters have been running with rumors, un-named sources only available to Fox News, and outright speculation to build their own picture of what happened in Benghazi.

And now, the CIA, the agency that was actually there and responded has released a timeline of what happened during the attack which has blown the Right Wing fan faction out of the water. There was no "Stand Down" order, the two ex-Navy Seals didn't go in guns blazing on their own against orders, there were more than just the two of them that responded (there goes the Rambo fan fiction of 2 vs hundreds), the drone wasn't pre-dispatched to that area, one of the ex-Navy Seals came from Tripoli, and the two that died didn't die trying to defend the Consulate, they died back at the CIA safe house trying to defend that.

And after all that, all you have from the Benghaziers is, "That's a lie". LIKE THE FREAKING KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.

I'm sorry, but I have nothing else to say to Benghaziers anymore, they have carved out a new sub-species of Conspiracy Theorist who will be sneered at just like Birthers.

YOu mean the rumors from the actual HEARINGS........? those rumors? From testimony from people who were watching this take place live? Those rumors?

Or people who were actually responsible for the training and outfitting of this area on the ground? That testified at the hearings? Those rumors?

Riiiiiight..........

Perhaps you should actually watch the hearings............I havent found ONE person who has watched the hearings all the way through who still come to bat for the administration on this......

Most of the stuff coming out about Benghazi is straight from the horses mouth.....

Spin all you want man..........you cant put the genie back in the bottle

Go ahead and link to sources about the hearings and what was said in there that contradicts this timeline.

Funny how you just tell me to go watch them, but don't offer specifics.

And we could have ended up with another 'Black Hawk Down' situation.

Look, real life is not like the Modern Warfare or Black Ops video games people! One cannot simply fly in a bunch of guys and dump them in the middle of a firefight.

Thank you a voice of reason and just maybe some experience. This has been my thought on the issue for some time now.

Wish I could give more stars.

Who's awesome? You. You're awesome.

No, seriously, people on this site definitely need to be called out time and time again on their over-the-top credulity and desperate willingness to believe anything (even unverified rumors) as long as it's 'anti-establishment.'

So you can't give specifics, just like I thought.

It's a worn out and old tactic that works on people with low intellect, "trust me, watch this 3 hour video, it's all in there", but they can't articulate their own thoughts. Why can't you take what you have already heard (supposedly) and articulate that into a well thought out response? Why do you have to rely on just linking to a three hour video and not being able to give a single specific about what is in that video that proves your point?

No sir, I am not what is wrong with America, you are. The person who can't articulate his own thoughts and lets others think for him. When asked to articulate his point, he just points to a video and says it's all in there.

I didn't come on this forum to watch hours upon hours of video that I have already seen looking for a piece of information that someone says is in there, but can specify what that information is. I've come on here to have intelligent conversation with other people. I'm sorry you can't rise to that occasion and instead just rely on pointing to a video when asked for your own thoughts.

But this is the Right Wing fantasy.

They are currently crushed right now because their fantasy of two ex-navy seals rushing into the Consulate all alone and against orders has been denied. They really want to believe that two men rushed in as patriots against orders and all by themselves took on hundreds and hundreds of "terrists". They want Rambo and The Expandables to be real life.

This is the same thing that happened with the Aurora shootings, they like to believe that if just one person in that dark smokey theater was armed, they would have taken out the shooter all be themselves and no one would have been killed.

Team America, F Yeah...this is what they truly want to believe.

Thanks


The more I read how Republicans think Obama's administration should have handled the situation, the more and more convinced I am that GOP supporters play entirely to much xBox 360 and PS3.

I just keep thinking..."Marines are not like Master Chief from Halo. These people must think war is really like that."

This isn't a video game, it's also not a movie!

Does anyone really think they would have been able to get a chopper anywhere near that consulate? The enemy would have gone, "oh wow, look at that big black metal target!". One RPG would have taken them out.

It's not like it is in "Transformers" -- this wasn't open desert. They were being fired upon from cover. It would have been very hard to determine the size and disposition of forces even with a drone flying over.

This.

I could not have summed up exactly what I want to say to these people more perfectly.

Does anyone have a good pic of Rambo with two machine guns? I think the Republican supporters think that is how our military really is.

Edit: Found one. Yep, this is how it really works!

Here's the thing with this story, and the birther story: that no straight answer was forthcoming in a reasonable amount of time. It has every appearance of time being taken to see if it would blow over, then concocting a story.

Not that I am a birther. Only that their point, about why it wasn't forthcoming in a reasonable amount of time, is wholly valid and yet to be answered.

In essence, to demand answers in a timely fashion is how you keep that particular sleight of hand from occuring.

I cant give specifics? I JUST GAVE YOU THE WHOLE DAMN THING!

Watch it.......its got all the specifics you could ask for.........THEN research for youreslf and look at the stuff coming out SINCE the hearing.......

Im not doing it all for you.......

Im not surprised tho...........YOU asked for proof, YOU asked for something thats not speculation......and I provided it to you........to which you respond



I didn't come on this forum to watch hours upon hours of video that I have already seen looking for a piece of information that someone says is in there


You didnt watch it and you KNOW you didnt.........if you had you wouldnt post some of the things you do because they are in DIRECT contradiction to what whats testified by the people themselves......

You just exposed yourself and your agenda.........

There is no objectivity in you...........

hmmmmm, so now the government accounting is the only one that matters ??
what happened to the "other side" of the story ??
for those willing to read, you may find this interesting.
propaganda source ? sure, a well known one but that doesn't make the story or elements of it less credible.
world.time.com...

Then, around 3 a.m., bullets began hitting just outside the annex. “Mortars started landing. They hit the roof. There were several and we were all confused,” said Faruq of the Libyan Shield brigade. “The Marines put on their night vision goggles and took up positions,” said Faruq. “Some positioned themselves in the doorway and some set up inside.” It was during this attack that former Navy SEAL commandos Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed.

Faruq had decided against bringing a large contingent with him to the annex. The site “was supposed to be a light foot print and no one thought it was dangerous because it was an unknown safe house,” he said. But gunfire was sending everyone for cover. [color=amber]At about 3:20 a.m., Faruq called the Joint Operations Room at the February 17th Brigade that coordinates the activities of several military and security organizations. [color=amber] Within 15 minutes, more than a hundred security officials arrived at the annex to help secure the area. Some set up a perimeter one kilometer from the annex. Others occupied the villas around the residence. Finally, a Libyan colonel showed up outside and the Americans prepared to evacuate. They placed the bodies of Doherty, Smith and Woods in a Mercedes and headed to the airport. But the plane that brought the Marines was too small to carry all the Americans back to Tripoli. The Marines stayed behind with the three corpses.

At the airport, a Marine told Faruq they had to go to the hospital because there was news that some Libyans had brought Steven’s body there. Two vehicles were sent to retrieve his body and at around 6 a.m. Stevens’ corpse lay next to those of his three comrades. By 10 a.m., another plane finally arrived to transport the Marines and the dead Americans back to Tripoli. It had been the most lethal attack against U.S. diplomatic facilities since the 1983 Beirut embassy bombing took the lives of 63 people.
does the entirety of this accounting inspire more questions for you as it does for me ??

Everything I have looked at has shown the Rapid response team couldn’t have gotten there any faster than four and a half to six hours after the first report. Think about how long it takes to fly across the country. Washington had conflicting reports one which stated the conflict was over. What are the chances that when they touched down in country that their presence would spark a new conflict. So best estimates they would be able to get there to fight for maybe an hour and more than likely cause fighting to continue. A new battle of Mogadishu where I guarantee more would die. Does anyone know at what time they placed the ambassador’s death I am willing to bet he had already died?

I do not even know if one was there but the rumor has been around here but in that environment using an AC-130 would have put our own people at risk not to mention we had people missing so how would we know if we weren’t firing on them.

The whole situation stinks but how much worse could it have ben? Answer: A lot worse.

I don't think an AC-130 would have been effective unless we knew our people were out of harms way.

It's not like the enemy was was out in the open. How are you supposed to know where to fire, when the bad guys are hiding in buildings?

I'm not sure you know what "specifics" means. Pointing to a 3 hour long video is not "specific".

I watched that hearing when around the time it happened. Are you sure you have watched it, because you can't seem to be able to articulate what you got out of it.

The old "I'm not doing your work for you" defense when you can't back up your own argument, that's cute. YOU are the one claiming that you have facts that contradict this timeline, yet you can't seem to provide any examples. That is on YOU, it's not up to me to prove YOUR claims. If you can't back up your claims or are unwilling to, then maybe you should stop making claims.
