"There were 4 Americans murdered in Benghazi…and yes, it was terrorism. There were 4 Americans murdered at the Boston marathon…and yes, it was terrorism. I am glad the Administration put all the resources it did into finding the bombers in Boston – it was important. The Administration did exactly right in investigating in Boston (the jury is still out on what the Administration did or did not do before the bombing.) But why are our 4 murdered Americans in Benghazi not so important? I think they are." Greta Van Susteren

I still care.....what are we doing about the men we identified (???) that killed Americans in Benghazi?

That is exactly what the CIA yells to make sure our government 'pays no attention to the man behind the curtain' ;)

"Cities are inanimate objects , weasle....."

So then you still don't understand? One was in an unprotected region with much more safety risks than the other...

"You democrats have to find someone that that knows their job description next go around. It isn't just smiling, shaking hands, and acting regal. I is doing your job in protecting the Constitution and the People of the USA, first and foremost. Somewhere we got lost, raising money and running for office and leaving a legacy, became way more important that the Constitution, rights, security, and the people and truth telling went straight out the window. You can always lie...it is not cheap though....lying cost lives...."

Which utterly ignores the potential ramifications of CIA intervention overriding the SOS authority in the matter.

"And remember this topic is about Benghazi and you are welcome to start a topic on the CIA....this topic is on Hillary Clinton and Obama's management of Ambassadors in a dangers country...on 9/11.... American Citizens btw."

Strange, I thought this thread was 'just' about Benghazi and the idea that we need to find out ALL of the information - not just that which puts Clinton in a bad light?

--If this was the case, they would have explained this initially after the outrage of leaving these people to die, instead of the other 101 lies they uttered before this one. I believe that the administration has decided to utilize this fictional story in order to avoid any accountability (complete with a slow drip leak to make it sound more plausible).

I guess some equate 2 cities separated by 13 hours as the same?

"Why was he at a consulate in Benghazi that had been attacked before, after others had left, from other countries..."

That is the million dollar question, isn't it? There seem to be some significant CIA ties for his being there, rather than issues related to the SOS...

Why was he at a consulate in Benghazi that had been attacked before, after others had left, from other countries, on **9/11**. I call that PPP that led to deaths. It seems to me that even I could have figured out it was a dangerous day....to be in Benghazi. No wonder the Queen of PPP stepped out of her job....she could do one part of her job...protect ambassadors.

Why? Was the Benghazi Embassy adjacent or something that we are all unaware of? Or is it 13 hours away be car?

US EVACUATES EMBASSY IN LIBYA AMID CLASHES

"WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department has shuttered the U.S. embassy in Libya and evacuated American staffers there as the security situation in the capital Tripoli deteriorates amid worsening clashes between rival militias.

The department said in a statement that American embassy staff left Tripoli on Saturday and traveled overland to neighboring Tunisia. Embassy operations in Tripoli will be suspended until the security situation improves, it said. Tripoli has been embroiled for weeks in inter-militia violence that has killed and wounded dozens on all sides. The fighting has been particularly intense at the city's airport.

The suspension marks the second time in a little more than three years that Washington has closed its embassy in Libya."

Timmerman On "The Truth About What Happened in Benghazi"

7-19-14

"Kenneth Timmerman has reported from the Middle East for 35 years. He was one of the first journalists on the scene after Iranian terrorists bombed the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon in 1983.

When the 2012 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi left four Americans dead, Timmerman recognized the pathetically inadequate coverage.

“Iranians have been killing us for the past 30 plus years and the U.S. government has never done a thing,” Timmerman told Townhall. “I think it’s about time we stood up to the Islamic fascist government in Iran and made it clear that their continued murder of American citizens will not be tolerant any longer and we will make them pay a price for it.”

Timmerman utilized his contacts from the Middle East and his knowledge from time spent reporting on the ground in the countries to write “Dark Forces: The Truth About What Happened in Benghazi.” Last week, Timmerman joined me for an exclusive interview."

It was a situation of the Embassy in Tripoli was heavily protected. Why did Stevens go to Benghazi without that protection? That is the question we should be asking. What was his purpose in doing that? That is where this needs to start. Was Clinton appraised of his movements on those two days?

Suspect in Benghazi attack found dead

7-14-14

"Faraj al-Shibli, who was suspected of involvement in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, has been found dead, a Libyan source and locals in the town of Marj said.

Al-Shibli, whose name is also spelled Chalabi, was last seen being detained by a local militia in Marj two days ago, a Libyan source said.

It is unclear what happened to al-Shibli since then, but his body was found Monday in the eastern Libyan town of Marj."

I think your gentleman friend, EZ, brought up a point I never thought of....why no call to anyone to intervene...you can not tell me, that absolutely no one was close that were allies that could send a big fighter jet over...???? seems strange, but if no one even tries to contact them.........hmmmmmm.

I am still back on, everyone else leaving there and in our State Departments wisdom they did absolutely not one single thing to plan for Happy 9/11 Day. So stupid even. I like a govt that always plans from behind...and after the fact...and then they have to lie. How about about some pre planning for 9/11 based on what all had happened in Benghazi leading up to 9/11.

...Oh please A1, I am a veteran & I personally believe no man should be left behind.

...The article however states:

>>>"Regardless, Stevens’ death might have been collateral damage in an attack against a known (in Libya) CIA covert operation. Or Stevens might have been a CIA operative himself who was not only participating in the post-revolution operations in 2012 but had actively participated in the overthrow of the Qaddafi regime. According to Napolitano, this theory might fit the facts better than any offered so far.

“Now we can connect some dots. If Stevens was a CIA agent, he was in violation of international law by acting as the U.S. ambassador. And if he and his colleagues were intelligence officials, they are not typically protected by Marines, because they ought to have been able to take care of themselves.”<<<

Elia, " I do believe there is a strong possibility that Chris Stevens was a CIA agent"

And if he was?

Does that justify leaving him unprotected and leaving him behind to get murdered?

And then covering it up for personal political gain?

"...No, A1, at least 2, maybe 3 pathetic stalkers (with apparently no life outside of making life miserable for others here on GB) followed BTC1 off this site to other internet sites."

Why do people post to all the social media sites if they don't want other people to read them?

And then they WHINE about people reading what they have posted for EVERYONE to see?

Please.

Give me a break.

In the course of my day today, I spoke with a gentleman that has worked as an air marshal for a few years now, but had worked as a for hire security detail on the other side of the world in the same type of capacity as the two security people that had been murdered in Benghazi.

He said that they always strategically stock the roof positions with ammunition, tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition. He stated as long as there is ammunition, and at least two people working it (watching each other's backs), you can stave off trouble for as long as you have ammunition. He speculated that as the mortars would land on the roof, exploding shrapnel into their backs, and breaking down their armor, they eventual succumbed to a death of a thousand cuts, waiting in vain for reinforcements.

He said that in his circles, most are seeing red, as no back up arrived, they didn't even try to call for assistance from close allies, it was almost like they were trying to act like the massacre wasn't even happening. He said it was like being sucker punched by the government, momentarily knocking the breath out of you, that up until that incident, it was just "known" that our country always had their back.

As a country, we turned our backs on these people in their greatest time of need. This needs to be addressed.

US commanders suggest 2nd group in Benghazi attacks

7-10-14

blog-free

"The testimony, which the Associated Press was able to read ahead of its release, could clarify for the first time the Sept. 11, 2012, events that have stirred bitter recriminations in the US, including Republican-led congressional investigations and campaign-season denunciations of the Obama administration, which made inaccurate statements about the attacks. The testimony underscores a key detail that sometimes has been lost in the debate: that the attacks were two distinct events over two days on two different buildings, perhaps by unrelated groups."

Try to keep in mind it was a video....everyone in the Administration said so...

Well planned and trained, mortar right on hit of CIA complex.

Did you notice how fast Hillary bailed after this attack....she is incompetent. She is in charge of security for Ambassadors...her job. I think of all the heads up before 9/11 and she did nothing to manage security before 9/11. At least others left, they were able to manage, the Red Cross, Britain, and Tunesians had leaders who planned and did their jobs to protect.

Terrorists had posted pictures of Ambassador Stevens going for a routine morning jog and threatening to abduct or kill him. The Libyan security guards in the Benghazi consulate had been receiving warnings for weeks before the attack to quit, as an attack was planned for the facility. According to Issa, the embassy asked for heightened security for their diplomatic missions — and got nothing but static in response.

Obama administration officials have said there was no specific intelligence predicting the 9/11 anniversary assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. A senior State Department official acknowledged that there were five serious attacks on Western targets since the spring in the lead-up to the attack on the 9/11 anniversary. Speaking of the June 6 attack at the consulate’s perimeter gate, this official said, “The IED attack caused no loss of life and no injury. The wall acted as designed. It absorbed it.” This official said that compared with the 9/11 anniversary assault, the earlier attacks in Benghazi were mild. “We faced a coordinated, military-style assault. We’ve never seen that kind of attack before,” this official added. Reason. Com

Al Qaeda flags were flying all over Benghazi at the time.So where do I lay this, Weasle,,,,,right at the feet of the incompetent Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Her job....was to protect the ambassadors....she is the only one who could not read the signs. Do you want her responsible for your security?...............NO.
